Hello,

I'm using Firefox 61.0.1 64bit with Opensuse Tumbleweed (Gnome). Recently (Not sure but maybe everything started after a distribution upgrade including Firefox and some drivers), Firefox causes the whole system to freeze when visiting some websites (including Yahoo email login, this page while trying to post a question here or even the command about:support) and the only solution is to hard reset.

I tried everything (a clean reinstall, a new profile, disabling Hardware acceleration, disabling the plugins and the add-ons) but nothing seems to work except the safe mode (that I'm using right now).

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

I am running Linux Mint 18.3 kde and when I open up Firefox and click the menu button in the upper right hand corner, nothing happens. It looks like the button stays depressed however it doesn't actually do anything. After I click it again, the button unpresses. This is very frustrating and I'm hoping somebody can offer some advice on fixing this issue.

So far I have tried restarting Firefox with no add-ons and starting in safe mode, neither have worked.

Thanks

My extensions do not work. I successfully updated from 60.0.2 to 61.0 and then to 61.0.1 earlier today without issues. I have the most recent MacOS (10.13.5). None of my extension work or show up after the updates.

I tried to install a new extension (privacy badger), and it was successfully installed. However, I cannot find it anywhere on the menus. It is listed under the addons. Restarting FF or disenabling and enabling extensions do not work either. This is very annoying and I don't have a clue how to fix this. Any help appreciated.

My only recent crash is from last month (although reported today). bp-71d0e9bb-d037-49fc-bc25-ef7280180707

Thanks!

My outlook/hotmail account LOADS, but I cannot open any specific email for 4 days. I receive only a blank/white screen when I click on any specific email: https://outlook.live.com/owa/projection.aspx. It appears to be a Firefox problem as other browers (Internet Explorer) does allow me to open specific hotmail emails. Can you help?

I'm running Firefox 61 on up-to-date Kubuntu system. After the recent update, the buttons in upper right corner - for Download, Library and Menu are not working properly. After clicking them, nothing happens. Surprisingly, if I afterwards click below them, the actions (for example opening the downloaded item) happens. So the window is there, but invisible.

The bookmark button works fine.

I could understand it not clearing the cookies if Firefox was to crash or indeed my computer crashed (power failure etc) while I was browsing. I have become increasingly aware of the possibility of "cookie mining". Even though the cookie may be encrypted, knowing where they originated from and how often provides data as to website usage. I now take the view that if Facebook or google or Microsoft or anyone else wish to use my information (of even the most innocuous type) from which they will derive income (advertising profile data) they should pay me for it. The Firefox development community may have a different view but because they are champions of privacy & security, they should tell us. If they have switches that only designed to work "sometimes" they should also tell us and explain the logic. I could understand not clearing cookies from a previous session, because the option may have been different under that session, but I NEVER change that option. Still Firefox seems to be spasmodically not clearing some cookies on exit.

There are all sorts of dire warnings about not blocking cookies and I understand websites may use cookies to improve the "user experience" while you use that website. I also understand that a "hidden" website such as web beacons or other advertising gathering tools can store cookies related to the present "parent" website that you are visiting and these cookies are then available for interrogation by an entirely different website that happens to also use that beacon or tool. In short cookie mining.

Open source is open source. If Mozilla (I am a long time supporter) wishes to have policies or directions that are changing or at odds with what we users expect or have come to believe then that is fine as long as they tell us and explain their reasoning.

I had 20 some tabs open looking for vehicles. I opened firefox as usual, it showed all my tabs fine, when I went to close firefox it warned me about closing multiple tabs. I found this unusual so I cancelled closing and verified in options that always restore tabs was still selected, it was. So I went ahead and closed firefox.

All of my tabs are now gone and the restore previous session isn't available. I need these back as I stated I was shopping for vehicles...

Hi, I just recently use firefox as my browser and I notice some error which kinda bothersome. So here is the story, I notice that whenever I finish the booting up my windows (after entering password), I got xulrunner error which stated that and old firefox is running but not responding and when I check my cpu usage, I notice that a firefox background process is hogging around 27-35% of my cpu usage which is weird because I just finished booting up and I haven't opened a firefox browser. Of course I can end task this firefox background apps and everything back to normal but I am curious what is the problem with the firefox. See the attached image for the detail.

I cannot find a tick box to uncheck in preferences that allows me to amend permissions. I also do not appear to have an advanced section in the preferences section of Firefox Quantum on my Mac.
