hello there and good evening:3 my husband and i are having this repetitive and extremely frequent bright yellow pop up with a robot that states "a webpage might be slowing down your browser." then the option to wait, or stop it. i've ran out of patience with this notification to the point to where even though i'de hate to, i would have no choice but to switch back to chrome just to stop being spammed by this pop up while im trying to relax. it happens more frequently on youtube and walmart.com, and i just want it to stop because it seems as if when it does show up, once it starts it never stops, and it actually slows down my webpage to the point of becoming unresponsive and stalling/crashing my only webpage open at the time. my husband has the same issue and we both use windows desktop. it only started appearing after the latest update. please, can someone help me make this thing go away? its very stressful and i cant browse in peace anymore on firefox. yes we have turned off all background processes, and we both have scowered settings troubleshooting for hours at a time to no avail, it just never stops and it behaving like a really bad bug.

I've recently been having issues of loading hiccups, and issues where it'll act like it's offline. Sometimes it'll briefly fail to load some small images on a site, such as Twitter avatars, other times it'll stutter while watching a stream and freeze video until I refresh it. I've had moments where, for up to a minute, Youtube will give me a message saying I'm offline, or I won't be able to connect to a certain site, yet if I check on Chrome on the same connection it'll load up fine.

I tried a whole Firefox Refresh, but it came back after a day. I only use one plugin, and even removed it for a while to see if that was the cause, but the issues would persist. The issue comes and goes every few hours or so, and I've had no other problems with my regular internet. It's been happening for about a week and I've never had this happen before.

Thanks for any help.

Hello -

I haven't watched any Amazon Prime (paying member) for a few weeks and just tried to watch a show last night and kept getting error message "Video Unavailable". I tried several other shows, as well as turning off AdBlock and ensuring I wasn't running a VPN/proxy to no avail.

And today I am discovering I cannot play Spotify either.

Any thoughts? Part of recent updates? I am attaching a screenshot if helpful.

Much appreciated!

My Firefox (version 56) on Ubuntu 18.04 suddenly stopped working. The program starts, I can access menus etc and type an address, but nothing renders at all. I have no issues with other browsers (Chrome, Chromium, Konqueror) or other internet applications. The firefox issue is also present for other user accounts. The issue is both with internet sites and sites on my local network, such as my router.

I have tried:

  • Booting in an older Linux kernel
  • using IP numbers (that work in other browsers) instead of DNS names
  • Firefox safe mode / refresh
  • Deleting profile completely
  • Completely purge Firefox (and mozilla profile directories) and reinstall (versions 56, 67, 86) both from canonical and from mozilla.org
  • Updating Nvidia graphics driver from v415 to v460
  • I was able to access the config and preferences pages by specifying it from the command line (firefox about:config or firefox about:preferences) so I could try:
  • Checking proxy settings (no proxy)
  • disabling IPv6

To no avail. All versions of Firefox remains just white. I'm out of ideas - any suggestions? :-)

The only thing that did work was this "portable" firefox: https://www.orbital-apps.com/blog/2017/firefox-quantum-now-available-as-a-portable-app-for-linux

Hi, I've an old printer, a HP 970Cxi which I think is similar to a HP 970cse. I've used firefox for a long time with this printer with no problem, but recently it started printing double width or more characters rendering the printouts useless. If a document is in PDF form, I have to save it and then print it out from a separate PDF viewer. If printing a web page or a receipt, I have to use another browser or try and copy the page to MSWord for printing. I'm guessing this might be a problem caused by an update, but if not, what setting is causing this? The paper is set to A4 and all settings I can see look fine. Thanks

Hello all. For the past couple months i've been able to use the web version of Google Earth within the browser with little to no issue. However, about a week or two ago I discovered Google Earth stopped working whenever I tried to use it. I would navigate to Google Earth's website, click "Launch Google Earth", and be met with this loading screen which never changes. I went to Google for help and they had me run Memtest86 on my computer, to which I found all of my RAM sticks were fully functional with 0 error or issue.

I am using the absolute latest version of firefox as well as my operating system. I am running Windows 10 on a custom built PC for gaming, 64-bit. I've tried the following:

-disabling browser addons -restarting firefox -disabling my antivirus -disabling my antimalware -restarting computer (multiple times) -disabling ALL of my browser addons

Now at first google earth wouldn't load in google chrome either, but at some point during my troubleshooting for fixing google earth on firefox, google earth began loading in chrome with no issue. As of now the only browser that can't pull up google earth is Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of the error messages I see when loading Google Earth in firefox.

Please, any and all help would be greatly appreciated. If there's anymore relevant, useful information I could provide then please let me know.

Hello Support,

some day ago I tried to download a .zip file which was instantly blocked by firefox and my antivirus program. So this was obviously some bad shit. I didn´t even try to open it or whatever and I directy deleted the file completely and cleared my firefox browser history and cookies, website data and cache. My settings also clear everything when I close firefox.

So the problem is, that every time I open firefox, still the note pops up that the download of this file, which "contains a virus or malware" was blocked (see screenshot). And every time I click "clear browser history". But the next time same again. The file is also not in the download folder or somewhere else so idk...

How can I stop this and be sure that this file (which somehow does not exist on my computer) doesn´t try to do any strange stuff?

I've run the complete scan of my antivirus (bitdefender pay version) a couple of times, no results.

Can anyone help me plz?

Thanks, Yann

I have tried many of the suggestions to fix the message that appears on a yellow bar the say in effect "another program is slowing down your computer. It sure is.

I've no idea since when my Firefox doesn't show highlighted code fences on any web pages. Specifically it happens inside the <textarea> tags. Anyone with an idea of the possible reasons?

I've tried to disable the add-ons one by one and inspect, nothing ever changed even when I disabled all my add-ons and meanwhile I refresh the page every time I disabled an add-on.

I added a few screenshots for comparison. Any help or tips are appreciated! Big Thanks!

For some time now (at least a year), I've noticed that the colors in videos are slightly off. The problem never affects still images, just videos (on every site).

Most users wouldn't notice the problem as it's quite subtle, but all the hues are all slightly off: Reds are slightly more yellow than they should be, yellows are slightly redder, blues are slightly more cyan, and cyans are slightly bluer.

I don't use other browsers so not sure if this is a Firefox problem or a wider problem.

I don't have Flash installed so (presumably) the videos run in HTML5.

Whenever I click on a file to download in Firefox the dialogue box pops up asking what I would like to do with the file. I can select Open or Save as usual, but no matter what I press or how long I wait the ok button remains greyed out and unselectable. This means I can't download anything in Firefox which is very frustrating. Downloading works fine in other browsers.

So far I have run the refresh thing on Firefox which hasn't helped. I do not have any Parental Controls on as far as I know, this is a brand new computer, no children use any computers in this house and I have never activated anything like that. I have also cleared the downloads folder which had no affect either.

I just can't work out why it isn't working.
