Maybe a month ago, I began to get pop-ups, even though I'm block popups. Shortly afterwards, I started getting mutiple attempts to redirect. Firefox has always blocked, but the redirects have become more and more persistent, so now the majority of the times I go to a site, or new site, there is an attempted redirect. Very annoying. I'm also sending this problem to my anti-malware - Bitdefender - because it is not showing that I'm having any problems whatsoever.

Thanks for your help.

Very annoyingly, (Portable) Firefox (60.0.2) on up-to-date Windows 10 desktop refuses to recognize my PC so I have to keep getting a code and re-signing in.

I am on a portable version (60.0.2) of Firefox on a Windows 10 64 desktop. Although this worked fine for a long time, now every time I go to Firefox have to log on again, including the two-step security code thing. Then it asks if I want it to "save" the browser so I don't have to do this again, but it never works. I am not sure if this started after the recent Windows update or the Firefox update, but it is annoying to the extent that I may drop the two-step security process.

I am currently using Rel 60.0.2 but my old PC uses an Intel Pentium Dual CPU at 2.00 GHz with 4GBit of memory and W10 Pro Build 1803. The recent and current FireFox releases show either 4 or 5 threads running in memory and performance is very, very poor. I would like to consider reverting to a Release which does not require multi-core function. Is this R48? Where can i get it? is it supported? Does anyone have any other suggestion? Or will I have to consider another product/supplier?

Hi All,

I've been using FF sync between four devices for a long time now. The devices are a Windows laptop, a Mac laptop, an iPhone and an IPad. A couple of weeks ago, the Mac stopped syncing. I've tried disconnecting from FF sync and reconnecting, but that has no effect.

I can log into the FF sync website itself with the same credentials. There, I also tried disconnecting the Mac client, but that also did not help.

In the last error log file, I see the following, which I guess is the cause of the problem. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

1531472554256 Sync.Service DEBUG Exception calling WrappedLock: LockException: Could not acquire lock. Label: "service.js: login". (resource://services-sync/util.js:41:5) JS Stack trace: LockException@util.js:41:5 throwLockException@util.js:117:11 WrappedLock@util.js:131:9 WrappedCatch@util.js:105:22 login@service.js:864:12 sync/<@service.js:1094:21 WrappedCatch@util.js:105:22 sync@service.js:1090:12 1531472554256 Sync.Service INFO Cannot start sync: already syncing? 1531472554257 Sync.Service DEBUG Not syncing: login returned false.

FF60.0.2 Win7 8GB is paging as fast as SSD permits; (15 Windows with lots of tabs, closed many from 60.0.1 but still unusable esp Yahoo email) What's happened?

FF60.0.2 64 bit but not 60.0.1 on Win7 Lattitude E5250 128G SSD with many windows open some with few tabs some with very many tabs is now paging so furiously (80+MB/S) that typing in Yahoo mail is shown 5 to 10 seconds behind keystrokes. I did the FF update yesterday, have been fighting this ever since, have closed very many tabs some windows and have combined tabs of windows with few tabs. Nothing helps. Typing and reflection is faster here (IE) unless I switch window then return, but that reflects lack of javascript character analysis I think; however, scrolling is very slow on this screen.

Can I roll back to 60.0.1? If so, how do I get to 60.0.1 64-bit exe?

For the first time, I've encountered a webpage that doesn't display correctly using Firefox. It displays OK with Microsoft Edge and is partly displayed with Internet Explorer 11. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/fifa-world-cup-2018/live-scores-schedule-results

The page starts loading (it says: transferring data, waiting etc at the bottom left of screen). It appears to finish loading after 8 seconds but continually displays blue rotating dots and goes no further. See attached screenshot. The tab also indicates loading has completed. No error messages are displayed. I've tried Safe Mode, clearing cache, history and cookies associated with the site. Also tried with hardware acceleration turned off.

I'm using Firefox Quantum 60.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 PC. My laptop with Windows 10 also fails to display this page. The next-level-up webpage is OK, https://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/fifa-world-cup-2018

Any ideas? Regards.
