I've used Firefox for Mac for decades without any problems.

When I upgraded the Mac OS to Big Sur a few weeks ago, my Mac started crashing frequently, several times a day, sometimes within seconds. After numerous trials, I discovered that the cause was Firefox. If I remove Firefox (along with all the profile information) and use Safari instead, the Mac never crashes. If I download a fresh copy of Firefox and start using it, the mac crashes within hours.

Does anybody know why the latest version of Firefox does not work on Big Sur? Is there a remedy coming? Safari is okay, but I really miss Firefox, and I would like to go back if the problem can be fixed. Thank you.

I often open several tabs from a website in new background tabs in quick succession. Up till a couple of months . ago there wasnt a problem, it may bog down the browser for a second or two but it would all load and display correctly given in time.

What since than had occured is that certain tabs opened that way will be stuck in the loading phase of the site. Usually it will display a blank tab that gets partially rendered when I move the tab in the tab bar. When I say partially rendered I mean it looks like the sites content is displayed but no css is applied.

Whats strange is the data gets to the browser but it gets stuck at some point. Now Im wondering how I can fix that or at least force the page to render without using my mouse to drag tabs around. Which doesnt necessarilly work 100% off the time.

Hello, I use the add-on Simple Tab Groups and have been very happy with it so far! However, yesterday, I was moving some tabs from one group to another when I suddenly noticed that all my tab groups were empty! No idea when this happened as I had been working in one group for a while. The group I'd originally been working in was also empty after I'd closed it to check on others. Could this have happened due to the Firefox update on 25 November? AIs there any way I can recover my grouped tabs still? Thank you, Marieke

The top of the Firefox screen disappears including the Menu, URL and the Bookmark bars, and is covered by a white un-clickable area. If Outlook is the window below Firefox and the location where the close "X" in Firefox is clicked, Outlook will close.

The solution discovered is to reboot Windows. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox with a new downloaded version, and running sfc /scannow, but these were not successful. A few times, the same problem was seen in Chrome and it may be a Windows issue and not a Firefox bug. The problem is typically seen once or twice a day. It is not a problem that turning off full-screen will solve.

One post with this problem was found on a search from 2017 but the thread was closed.

Any suggestions for a permanent fix would be most welcome.

Bookmark this page process has changed (Firefox v83.0 Mac). I cannot choose where to save the bookmark because no screen appears where I can navigate to or select a destination. Then when I try to edit this bookmark, the edit screen only flashes briefly and disappears, giving me no means of editing the name or destination.

This has been occurring for 2 days as of 12/03/20.

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?
