Hello I have almost 10 tabs opened. I tried to refresh one of them but didn`t respond. Then I tried another one but didn`t respond either. So I closed Firefox and reopend it. A popup appeared for some seconds with the warning that there is a missing dll and may be a reinstall could fix the problem. I did so (without unistalling Firefox) but still the problem remains. Every time I open Firefox, all tabs appear, but the address bar is blank in all of them and back-forward and refresh tabs are grey. Any Help please? Thank you.

Hello,

After installing some random extension (pinned tab whats app or something like that), my firefox starts to act weird. I have big stripe/band on top of barely every website I use (as seen on attached screenshots).

I uninstalled the extension right away but it doesn't fix the issue. So I uninstalled entirely firefox, deleted what I found as my use profile folder, made a fresh install, but the issue is still here.

It disappear in troubleshooting mode, but in normal mode even with no extension the bug is still here.

When displaying developer tools, the page is now totally blank on some site, normal on others.

I'm on Elementary Os 5.1 (ubuntu 18.04).

Many thanks in advance for your help !

seemingly at random, images displayed in firefox will look incredibly messed up (like artifacting, and discolored chunks or stripes), text will be missing (as small as a few letters or as much as a page having no visible text at all), text will be discolored (usually a bright color like neon green or pink), and/or or text will appear blocky (sometimes manifesting as the font looking a little thicker and less HD, sometimes as bad as just being illegible rectangles). text with missing letters is able to be read while highlighted, but text that has become blocky is still unable to be read (still blocky) even while highlighted. i don't know if discolored text is affected by highlighting.

these issues happen regardless of what website i'm on, and will also happen on new tab pages or on firefox settings pages. it isn't consistent, it comes and goes. refreshing the page doesn't help or change anything, but if i close the tab and then navigate to the page again it's often different.

i've attached all the examples i've thought to capture, which isn't much. it can make the browser practically unusable at times.

i have firefox version 89.0 (64bit, auto updates enabled), on a windows 10 with 8GB of RAM and AMD FX-9800P RADEON R7 (i honestly.. don't know what that part means, but thought it could help) i previously had "Use recommended performance settings" and "Use hardware acceleration when available" enabled in firefox, but i turned them both off in an attempt to fix the problem. it didn't help.

i can't say for sure when this issue began, as i haven't used firefox much until recently, but i think it's been happening for over a month now. none of the other programs i use appear to be having visual problems, just firefox. at some point a year or more ago, i ran firefox on this computer without issue.

I noticed an issue since I updated to Firefox 89. Usually, when I right-click anywhere on the page to bring up a context menu and then decide I don't want to use any of the options on it, I can click on the page and the context menu disappears. Now, though, they don't go away unless I hit escape. I tried Firefox with the proton options enabled and disabled and in safe mode and regular mode and without any css personalization and it is the same regardless. Is this a bug? I'm on Windows 10 laptop.

After allowing the latest version of Firefox to update (89.0) I can no longer access my bank's website. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

BTW, I did not like the new theme offered so I changed browser.proton.contextmenus, doorhangers, modals, and places-tooltip to false. Not sure if this would cause a problem and I will set them back to true and test.

Oops! Nevermind!

After writing the above sentence about changing the proton settings, I went back to verify what I had done and found that I had left the browser.proton.places-tooltip set to 'True'. I switched it to false. Now all browser. proton settings are false and access to the bank website functions again.

Since Firefox has been updated, the interface is completely unusable. The frame does not render properly. I can use Firefox only in safe-mode with the terminal. The new WebRender seems to be the problem.

What did I do then ?

  • I entered apt purge firefox for full removal and reinstall -> Didn't work.
  • I disabled in about:preferences hardware acceleration -> Didn't work
  • Downgrade to Firefox 88 -> Worked.

I love the new interface and the new render process. But if I can't use it on my home workstation, things are going to be hard for me.

I added a screenshot to show the problem.

Thanks by advance !

As of yesterday's update I cannot access Hotmail or Gmail through FireFox! I can do so in the private browser which I don't want to have to use AND I can access both through other browsers but would prefer to stick with FireFox if only they'd stop screwing their customers up so often! I DID EDIT THE URLs CONTAINED IN THE SHORTCUTS ON THE BROWSER'S OPENING PAGE TO JUST BASIC DOMAIN NAMES BUT NOTHING HAPPENED AND NOTHING CHANGED THE RESPONSE OF FIREFOX! Can anyone please help? I am so fed up!

Here are the website urls that will no longer open from the browser page (screen shot provided) https://outlook.live.com for hotmail (& it wouldn't open even before editing) https://mail.google.com for gmail (& it wouldn't open even before editing)

Thanks.

PS there was a post last year of the identical issue but the solution she used isn't working here!

I have an older PC but it was working fine with Netflix and Prime Video until this latest update (v89.0). It seems that when I try to go to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video the browser crashes almost instantly, and usually shuts my whole computer off. It doesn't go to a blue screen, the computer just decides it's time to reboot. Now again, I'm using an older machine (and I can't afford a new one), but this was never a problem until this latest version of Firefox.

I am also not a fan of the aesthetics in this version and I'm wondering if I can revert back to an older version where the crashing was less frequent. Any help would be appreciated.

I am running Firefox 87.0 on Ubuntu 21.04. I ran into some issues after an ubuntu update, where programs (even gnome-terminal) stopped loading all together after I boot into my system. I resolved it by forcing modprobe.blacklist=nouveau

Now my system can boot, and all other programs work fine. However, while my firefox opens up properly, it doesn't load any pages. Not even the Preferences and about:config page. If I remove all tabs, and open a new one, it would repeatly prompt me that Firefox needs to restart after update. Although restarting firefox does absolutely nothing.

I've tried creating new profiles, rebooting my system, completely removing and reinstalling firefox, nothing works.

I'm forced to install and use google chrome to ask for any suggestions, which, as you can see, works perfectly. Please save me from this hell.

I've already looked at another question about the same issue. Half the fixes don't exist on my version of Firefox. There is no check box that I can locate, <shift>+F12 doesn't bring up any settings page as was suggested possibly do to developer tools that had been added while taking a collage class on web scripting. F12 brings up the developer tools and overrides the <shift> function. The page that does allows me to change settings simply doesn't have the option to use the search bar in the splash page instead of the address bar. No, this is not a feature I installed and I can not remove and reinstall it short of deleting and reinstalling Firefox. Which might not even fix it so I'm a little unwilling to do all that work to achieve nothing and possibly lose functionality in the process.

Do I consider this a high priority? Na, it's just really annoying. I mean, what's the point of even having that search feture if I can't use it?

The closest work around I could think of was to set a search page as my home page. And yes, I will be using a non Google search page just out of spite. So there. :P

Hey all,

I upgraded firefox to 89.0 (firefox for ubuntu). When playing videos it now uses RDD process instead of Web Content. The problem however comes from the resources "RDD process" uses. It is consistently at 100% usage of a CPU core and this is causing my fans to be really loud. I fixed this by changing media.rdd-process.enabled to disabled in about:config and this fixed the system resource issue but I don't think this is what is meant to happen.

As far as I know "RDD process" is meant to use the GPU. My computer has a dedicated GPU so I am at a loss as to what is going on here. Anybody who has any idea?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I've updated my Firefox to latest version (89.0) on my Windows machine, and from yesterday I'm keep having occasional freezes and artifacts. It happens when opening a tab or loading a page while also opening a Windows app. Freeze lasts for 5-10 seconds, followed with black screen and sometimes artifacts (today).

When I now open my firefox browser it will only open in a minimized window located in the upper left corner of my monitor. I then need to click the "minimize window to change to "maximize" and then click it to open the window to a full size screen. As I open new tabs after this they open in full size screen mode. But once I close the browser I have to start all over again. Is this happening because of the new update? Would appreciate your help please. Note: I did not take a full pic of my desktop, just the top portion that includes what I see when I open the browser.
