Yesterday, Amazon disappeared from the Firefox search drop down menu and it had disappeared as an option from the list of possible search tools. Later on in the day, it reappeared. This morning it had disappeared. Amazon is still there, but Firefox seems disinclined to admit that. How can Firefox make Amazon stick?

To whomever this concerns,

Paul from Mastodon said I should submit a ticket with my crash reports.

'Firefox has become unreliable at times in at least the last several weeks, I don't remember exactly how long. It gets to the point where any new tabs are non-functional, I have to restart the browser for Firefox to start working again.'

I recently submitted unsubmitted crash reports, I'm not a Mozilla dev, but I noticed a common theme is: "Quota manager shutdown timed out." A one-off crash was "IPC FatalError in the parent process!"

Here's my crash report id's:

  • bp-9291ac3b-dd78-4d93-829b-ae3f20240218
  • bp-39c08644-0905-4518-9fac-1068b0240218
  • bp-87b98b15-3ef7-4943-a4e5-3074e0240218

  • bp-45f66e51-03e7-4d5c-8328-43db30240218
  • bp-bbe53c10-725f-40e8-9b7c-680d0024020

Idk if this is helpful.

Idk if I'm the only one running into these issues, but if the average Joe was, I could see them abandoning Firefox due to these annoyances; so with your dwindling marketshare, I hope this is something you can resolve before it bothers too many people.

Best of luck~

Hi, I have a problem starting yesterday. When I video chat with anyone using Firefox on FB messenger they can see me but I cannot see them. Only a black screen where they should be showing. I have tried everything from uninstalling to different settings. I have made sure also that permissions were set correctly. Also it has been giving the error "slowing page down" or what says. Nothing helps. Now if I use Edge or phone it works just fine and we can see each other. This has never happened before. Also, the messenger games wont work on firefox either, but will on others. Please help if possible or tell me how.

Thank you

I use 118.0.2 (64-bit) because I do not like the newer versions, but every time I open it I have to decline two consecutive Firefox popups urging me to upgrade to the newest version. Since I open Firefox dozens of times a day, these constant popups are driving me crazy. How can I stop them? Thanks.

Hi how do I i prevent Firefox from going into efficiency mode. When Firefox goes into efficiency mode it be comes slow and unresponsive. if I manually uncheck efficiency mode in task manager Firefox becomes quicker and less laggy until a few seconds to minutes later it goes back into it. The performance of Firefox in efficiency mode makes it almost unusable and can take up to a minute for it to start working again.

Hey!

When you're going to fix the Ctrl + C issue?!

I'm sick and tired of restarting your f*g browser each time I need to paste something in a form on a page. It's frozen each time I press Ctrl+C somewhere outside your browser and return to it. I am forced to close it and restart it! It's been a year since this bug or even more.

Thank you

Hi. Without warning and without my making any changes to my laptop, I can no longer access various web pages including those I most use. The error message being returned is: Secure Connection Failed Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_FUTURE_RESPONSE

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox without successfully resolving access. Other browsers have no access issues. I tried checking for advice on what else I could do but i don't find the information on the web to be at all helpful. I'd appreciate very detailed instructions on exactly how to resolve this.

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz 1.80 GHz Installed RAM 8.00 GB (7.87 GB usable) Device ID DE6126F4-CF38-4570-9665-6074D5A800B9 Product ID 00325-81249-74797-AAOEM System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Thanks in advance.

I just started using Firefox today and I'm migrating everything from google. I've found that Pinterest seems to be entirely broken? I'm using quite a few plug-ins recommended to me, I'm not sure if one of them is the root of all this or what, but when I try to use Pinterest, I can't scroll on the explore page, or save new pins, or see anything on my account (it's just blank) or do anything that Pinterest exists for. Help

I attached some screenshots. On the explore page it won't load any further when I scroll. The second screenshot is my account and how it never loads and stays blank. Third is what happens if I click on an image in explore (no more load, can't save the image to a board, can't do anything). I also added a screenshot of every extension I have for reference, in case it turns out it's one of the extensions causing this?

Thanks for your time :(

Yes, I know addons exist for it but many work places don't allow installing addons, security wise they can be a concern and these addons have poor UI/UX. I am genuinely considering using Edge over Firefox due to them having better tab groups which I never though I would say. Please implement a simple tab folder, literally just what current Edge has. It is a very useful basic feature and I would really love to have it included in my favorite browser I have been using for over a decade. Thank you.

For a few months now, on different sites, the backround is fully black on black text and I can't use it at all, so I have to enter on Chrome to use it. I tried reseting the cache and booting in safe mode, but it doesn't seem to work. I changed things like themes and made the site be able to choose its own, but nothing seems to work. One option I found online but I'm not to happy to try is to make another profile, but I have all my passwords and bookmarks on this profile.

Recently, about one out of four webpages that I try to visit seem to fail to load on FireFox. This is FF for Windows, and is the most updated version. This issue even occurred just now when typing in MOZILLA.COM. Everytime one of these pages fails I attempt it with Chrome or Brave, and it works just fine. It does not matter whether they're ventured to through Google links or other links, or whether I type the address in manually. It only happens sometimes, as other times the same page loads just fine.

I recently purchased a Sandisk Ultra Flair flash drive because I wanted to password protect some files. The flash drive requires me to download the Private Access software from the Western Digital web site. When I try to do this the Mozilla browser states "Malicious Download Detected" and cancels the download. Does anyone have any suggestions? I went to the Privacy and Security part of Settings, and unchecked the Deceptive Content setting, but Firefox still would not let me download the software. Perhaps the change to the setting I tried did not register in Settings, but here I am asking for your help. Thanks.

Why was Firefox View taken away in Private Browsing mode?

I thought that in Private browsing mode, using Tools > Settings > Privacy & Security > Clear Data > Clear > Clear Now cleaned out everything in mid-session. It turns out that's not true, for example, using Firefox View I found that the list of Recently closed tabs in three-bar menu > History > Recently closed tabs was NOT cleared. The only way to see that was with Firefox View, which you could then use to delete items from the list.

With the new version of Firefox (119.0) Firefox View has been removed from Private browsing mode entirely. Thus not only is it impossible to see if the recently closed tabs list has been cleared, but it's impossible to clear the list even if you could see it. That leaves the only way to be (fairly) sure things are cleared out during a Private browsing session is to close the browser entirely, which is an annoying pain.

Why was that feature removed? How can I tell if the recently closed tabs have been cleared without it?

Thanks.
