I'm currently running Ubuntu 20.04 although this problem began yesterday while I used Ubuntu 18.04. Simply put, I went to sleep on February 26 and on February 27 when I tried to start up firefox I only get the crash reporter. I am able to run 78.8.0esr thankfully, however I would greatly prefer to use the latest version of the browser. I can think of nothing I did between shutting down my browser on the 26 and waking up the next morning. Firefox will not start up in safe mode. I clean install from the snap store or ubuntu repositories has done nothing.

Below is my crash ID and i've attached all the details the crash reporter gives me.

Crash ID: bp-2e4e360d-605b-4fa6-9cdf-17eb90210227

Hi Firefox has been crashing on my linux system since february 27th Whether I attempt to start it safe mode or not, it will crach on startup, and Mozzilla Crash Reporter GUI will open. If I attempt to run it from the terminal in safe mode, the following error message appears in the console ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 21529 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

Problem: FIrefox suddenly quit working. Firefox refuses to load anything including local, external, and firefox config pages. When attempting to go to a webpage or config page by pressing the enter button nothing happens and the page is entirely blank. The developer console does not open. After about 2 minutes of not doing anything, it crashes. Issue persists past re-installs. I am unable to submit a bug report as normal(I only have pending crash reports), as when I attempted, it said "something unexpected happened" and then the bug report itself crashes.

Chrome works normally as expected.

Troubleshooting steps taken:

  • Refresh and safe mode
  • Launched in incognito
  • apt-get purge
  • Removing profile
  • removing .mozilla, .adobe, .macromedia, /etc/firefox, firefox-extensions, .cache
  • installing nightly, beta, reinstalled multiple times.

Current workaround: Using chrome

Machine information Ubuntu 20.04.2 Kernel Version: 5.4.0-66-generic

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.

This page https://www.nacocanada.com/cpages/common-docs is broken and has a newsletter sign up overlay that can't be closed. So i hide the element with uBlock origin but the underlying page still doesn't scroll. If i make the window taller more content appears, so it is there.

How do I force enable the scroll bar for all websites or at least this one?

Started yesterday March 1st. Linux Mint Firefox 86 Brother HLL 2300 printer

Was working fine day before. Went to print and it stops after (it appears) to start sending to the printer. Pops up an error message. Run diagnose and it returns with "The printers state message is "Filter Failed"

Prints fine with any other browser of software.

I have tired all the reset printers instructions on here. Including editing the config file.

I realize Firefox is free, so I should not complain, but why oh why has Mozilla changed the Firefox print interface in Version 86? Print Preview has gone. The controls are on the wrong side. It now resembles Google Chrome, which is just horrendous! Half the options are hidden so it takes twice as long to do what one wants to do. The interface is much more clumsy. I could go on. How do I reverse this? I cannot work with it! I uninstalled v86 and installed v85, and the horrendous print layout is still there!! Thanks in advance

And why is Firefox feebback page no longer working?

About 4 days ago, Adobe Flash Player updated to 11.5 and started crashing multiple times a day. So when Firefox updated to 17 today, I immediately uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled the new versions in hope that the problems would be fixed. When that wasn't the case, I followed all the steps for Flash 11.3 and nothing has worked. This is only happening in Firefox. Flash works fine in Google Chrome and in Internet Explorer. My school's primary requirement is that I use Firefox with Flash to do my schoolwork. This is an issue if I have to restart Firefox multiple times during my session. 25% of all Flash crashes also crash Firefox. I need help soon.
