Whenever I open Firefox, the window will appear shortly after, but it will take around a minute for websites to load.

  • This applies to both tabs from older sessions and opening new tabs.
  • It doesn't matter whether I've just booted up, or if I've been running for half an hour.
  • I've tried disabling all extensions, but that hasn't fixed anything.
  • This doesn't happen when running Firefox on Windows 10
  • I've tried both the system package and mozilla.org version

I am running Linux Mint 21.1 Cinnamon on my Gaming Laptop. Specs shouldn't be an issue. Am happy to share any system info necessary. ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!

Ever since Firefox updated today I've been unable to use the browser. It takes at least 5 minutes or more minutes to load, I can't manually log into any websites until the speeddial finally loads, and the speeddial addon refuses to come up for at least 5 minutes, I can't log into Dropbox even with the speeddial up and running because the capcha won't popup...and on and on.

What in the world has been done to it? I'm using another browser just to contact support.

I have that issue also it shows up anytime I try PNC.com or my health care insurance. The workaround is using Firefox's private window. I removed my saved login and dumped my data, cookies, site data, and cache but that didn't help. That has been a pain restoring other sites I had saved, but that's another story.

  See image for error message.

I suddenly began seeing weird, random text rendering problems in the browser. It looked like tiny bites had been taken out of random letters.

At first I thought my external monitor developed bad pixels, but I discovered that the problem only occurred on Firefox (109.0.1): No other browser (Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera) showed the issue. Also, the problem only showed on my external monitors: it disappeared when I moved the browser window to my laptop screen.

I first noticed it only on letter "t" in the google search bar: I tested every other letter and none showed the same problem. In a continuous line of repeating "t" letters, the corruption occurred in a repeating pattern, only corrupting letters in position 7, 9, 16, 18, 20. But then I noticed elsewhere on the page I a random letter "a' was sometimes affected.

My NVIDIA studio driver needed updating (to 528.24), so I did that and the problem seems to have resolved. Very strange.

From some point on, my Firefox started behaving strangely. When I start up the browser, it opens new window under other opened windows instead of does it above ones. When I try to open new window in an already running browser, it does it properly. In my mind, it's really uncomfortable and unintuitive behavior so it will be good if I can fix this issue and make Firefox starts up normally (on top of other windows) like all other applications in my system. I'm currently running on 64-bit Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (snap) version 109.0.1.

Thank in advance for any help or advice regarding my problem.

I tried the RPM and Flatpak Firefox, both in the newest version give me crashes when Loading Youtube, Invidious, Stud.IP, Nextcloud and more "bigger" sites.

It seems like an OOM error, but I have way enough RAM, 4GB/12GB used.

I tried the Flatpak and the RPM Version.

I tried troubleshooting mode.

I used the Arkenfox user.js on both installs.

Lately Firefox has become unbearably slow. I checked my Verizon connection. Their test showed I have good network response. I get these long TLS handshake messages. I tried refreshing Firefox. I lost my adblock then reinstalled it. It seems to be working but I no longer see the icon showing how many ads are blocked. I thought I might try customizing it but when I go into Settings-Add-ons I can't even find it. By the way I can't find what release I'm on either but it should be the latest.

Not sure when the problems (slow and failure to launch) started. Had been using Firefox for years until a coupler of months ago. Tried to use support for help but nothing worked. Started using Chrome more often. Now I use it exclusively. Somehow, I suspect the combination of my use of Yahoo's NordVPN and AOL's Malwarebytes, somehow interfered with Firefox.

Good evening Community,

I have a prolem with my firefox browser since about 3 weeks. So I hope somebody around here can help me with that. Somehow it occurred that HTML5 videos need very long to load. Sometimes it even shows me the message that I should restart the browser. I really cant find the problem. I have the newest version: 109.0.1 (64-Bit) I deletet the cache. I also didnt install any Plugins or addons. Since the problem occured.

I tried other Browsers on my Computer and it works just fine. By the way I also have a pretty new Computer, the specs are fine.

The only thing I didnt try, is to reinstall Firefox. Because i have a couple of tasks opened which I dont want to lose or put in booksmarks. But that also cant be the problem. Because I always had around 10-20 tasks opened in the past.

I hope somebody can help me or had the same problem and knows how to fix it.

Sorry for my bad englisch.

Nice regards. BS

I'm a writer who relies heavily on instant access to Dictionary by Merriam-Webster. I recently got a new laptop and the dictionary will not load. It eventually will load but in a truncated looking format that is not useful. It works fine if I use Microsoft Explorer. I have cleared my cache but it still will not load and I have no trouble with anything else. This is super inconvenient. Is there some setting for Dictionary I'm missing?

After downloading the latest update this morning in desperation, Firefox crashed on first character of the primary password again and again and again. This time, started new tab, tried to type L into the address line and Firefox crashed AGAIN. Eventually, I have found that if I open a new tab and input a character into the address bar, I get one of three results. a) I input L and an L appears. If that happens, I can go on to use Firefox. b) I input L and get a totally random character appear. Could be S, or £ or $ or something else. In which case, I can't use Firefox. c) Firefox crashes.

Whoa, that sounds really severe. When this happens, is the Mozilla Crash Reporter dialog coming up? If so, you can share your crash reports with Mozilla Support volunteers for feedback on what might be causing that. See: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/firefox-crashes-asking-support

Yes, this is the 6th attempt to start Firefox and keep it going beyond the first keystroke input. I keep restarting till it works. I do not do anything else except restart, then try to input a keystroke. I can copy and paste and all is well till I hit enter or some other keystroke. It sucks and the Firefox team must be getting mad at the crash reports. Taking out all the plugins didn't help, and neither did restart in safe mode. I just keep getting the same problem.

is there someone who can answer a simple question that I know other people are having? Why is it impossible to print an article from the internet? When I hit print, "print preview" comes on and the little spinning doohickie just goes round and round. Is there no one who can tell us how to stop this and print a simple article? It's like Biden, it just spins and spins and does nothing.
