The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (fb) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

Hallo, since I've switched from InternetExplorer to FireFox as the standard browser, I cannot open MHT-files which I downloaded from the web. Firefox starts to open new tabs, by the second, endlessly. The process can be stopped only by killing Firefox with the TaskManager, several times. Is this a bug or a feature? Many thanks Ante

Hi there,

Occasionally (every half hour or so) I will notice there are two Firefox browsers open (I use nightly), one which I am using and another that fills half the screen but is stuck as if it were trying to load up. It cannot be closed or minimized unless the 'Firefox has crashed' message pops up, I was wondering if this is an issue faced before and can be fixed or something new?

Thanks

I have noticed that after using Firefox for a while when I close it the trace is left of the page I been watching or working in. Mainly it is visible through transparent windows (visibility stays after the Firefox window has been closed) and when the desktop background is changed to a dark blueish colour I can clearly see the faded Firefox page. Restarting PC changes nothing, the faded trace stays. It clears out after not using Firefox for a quite while. I really enjoy and prefer using Firefox to other browsers but this problem has been annoying me for a some time already. Any suggestions for fixes ?

Upon start up Firefox (ver 84.0.2) will use 100% of my HDD for 45 to 60 minutes, freezing my PC for that entire time. This also happens when I start Firefox in safemode, and when I start my PC in safemode with networking. I have cleared the cache, I have deleted each extension, I have even deleted each and every bookmark. I have deleted, redownloaded, and reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. I have even done a full reinstall of Windows 10. My HDD is less than two months old, and shows no errors when scanned. This problem does occur with other browsers, but not for the same length of time, Chrome will use 100% of my HDD for one minute, tops. Once Firefox stops doing whatever it is doing to my HDD after an hour or so, it will run in the background using 0% of my Disk. Through all of this, the Memory use goes no higher than 18%, and CPU no higher than 45% for a few seconds.

If I open a second tab in Firefox, or a separate instance of Firefox, it does not use the HDD very much at all.

If I close all Firefox instances and then reopen a new one, it will, again bog down my HDD for about an hour.

The unacceptable solution I've come up with is to open Firefox immediately after turning on my PC and to leave it running in the background for that entire time.

I am busy doing my schoolwork and firefox keeps on crashing, namely by over-using the CPU on my laptop too much. I have tried numerous routes, such as reducing the number of browser extensions, using one of the certified performance-boosting add-ons to reduce CPU usage, I even tried limiting my tabs to a maximum of 10, all of them have failed to improve performance. This is not even mentioning the browser-induced bluescreen I just got a few minutes before writing this.

I have refreshed my Firefox, because it was slow.

In the description was written: Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary 

Ok. It's fine. But after refreshing the Firefox how can I restore these elements?

Please send me a step by step instruction, without referring the webpage, because I have read it and it is not clear for me.

Where is my older profile? Where is my new profile? How can I move the elements from the older profile to the new profile?

Thanks a lot: Mihaly

Hello everyone! I recently had a problem while using the firefox browser. Sometimes I automatically/randomly log out on sites where I was logged in. This can be a Google account, Twitter or other sites. This has never happened before. I am using the latest version of the browser for windows and for android. Once in a while I delete my browsing history, but I never delete logins, cookies or cache. What could be the problem? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello Community,

I would like to start by sharing this screenshot with you as it help gain a better picture with the below info : https://snipboard.io/9z1FVU.jpg

I tried to access this URL (on my computer using Mozilla browser): torproject.org but after quite some time to load I got the error message in the screenshot.

I tried to access the same URL on my phone through the Mozilla app and it worked.

I have experienced the "The connection has timed out" with other websites as well.

Two questions.

1) Since I want to download Tor on my computer, how can I get it to even open up this webpage?

2) How can I prevent future "The connection has timed out" error messages?

I am looking forward to your assistance.

Thank you

I use Firefox on my various devices and I've never faced this issue before. On my new laptop which is a XPS, whenever I let my laptop go to sleep, once I return it from sleep Firefox is unusable (frozen). I can do other things with my laptop but I can't interact with Firefox in any way as it is completely frozen. Sometimes I am able to open a new tab but can't type anything into the search bar.

What I do to use Firefox right now is kill the process in task manager and launch Firefox again and for the most part I am able to use the browser but it is very tedious having to do this. Some steps I've tried to permanently fix this so far are disabling hardware acceleration and disabling disk caching but nothing seems to have fixed the problem so far.

My employer uses the G-Suite at work. I use Firefox on my company computer and on my personal computers.

On the afternoon of Jan. 20, I lost access to Google Calendar. It only shows the dates and a crawling blue ribbon, as if it's trying to load my calendar and failing.

I ran some tests with my company computer and my personal laptop. Here's what I found:

  • I can access all the other G-suite components (Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive) from Firefox on both computers.
  • I have the latest version (84.0.2) on both computers.
  • I can access Google Calendar (and the rest of G-Suite) using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Sounds like Google implemented something in Calendar that doesn't get along with Firefox. Has anyone else seen this issue?

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

2 weeks into my new MAC mini (my first MAC ever so I'm still learning!)...and Firefox worked perfectly until today. Now it freezes on the initial screen every time I run it. The only time I solved it was rebooting the machine...which worked...once. It locked up the very next time. Reloading Firefox doesn't fix it. Just a reboot.

Most of the answers I saw said Version 84.0.2 was the fix for that...but that's what I'm running. Any further suggestions? With my rookie status on the MAC. it could well be operator error. Thanks everyone!

Hello. This question has been translated using machine translation. Inaccuracies are possible. Sorry.

Firefox closed unexpectedly while watching TV online. Several windows appeared with messages about the ransomware program, as well as about the recovery of 18 files. Mac OS was checked for viruses by Avast, which found nothing. After all this, the Firefox browser stopped starting. Uninstalling followed by cleaning and reinstalling did not help, Firefox still does not start showing the following error:

I just got a Pi 4b with 8gb. So I picked up SanDisk MicroSD 64 GB with 170Write.

Loaded the Ubuntu Desktop 20.10. It boots in 30 seconds. Wow...

Printer setup was super easy... Had to add Clementine to Play M4A music from itune files.

Ok... Loaded just fine. Plays Great. The Ubuntu 20.10 comes with Firefox 81.0 browser. My favorite Browser. Went out to my Favorite Anime site to play some video. Animefreak.tv

Error loading player: No playable Sources Found

Well the Video Codec plugin not there. Checked the Add-ons Enabled

 OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.

This plugin is automatically installed by Mozilla to comply with the WebRTC specification and to enable WebRTC calls with devices that require the H.264 video codec. Visit https://www.openh264.org/ to view the codec source code and learn more about the implementation.

 ! OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly.

So I installed the new version of Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit). ok. I am using it now. No Video play back in Firefox on Ubuntu 20.10. Same Problem. I turned on the Allow Automatic updates in firefox openH64 Video Codec. Maybe it will update and install. Well I am not holding my breath. Its to bad, because the Pi 4b is just as fast as my Laptop HP envy running win10.

If you can find a fix. I would be grateful.
