Ever since I updated, typing has become incredibly challenging... There's big delays in the words showing up, letters come out in the wrong places, & it doesn't improve even when I clear cache, clear memory, & refresh pages. I don't know what else to do. Should I delete and re-install Firefox, or replace this with the previous version?

I am an academic librarian. Ever since about version 88 of FF, I've had an ongoing problem with crashes. Here's how to see what I get: go to library.gs.edu Click on the tab near the top for "Library Catalog." In the search box, type Luke-Acts (I use that for testing as it was the area of my Ph.D.) Press enter You will see a bunch of books listed. Click on a title When that book shows up on the screen, click the button above the book, "Cite." This always causes my tab to crash. I did this today in troubleshooting mode and sent the report in but I don't know what it said. This has worked correctly for about six years, all the time I have worked for this organization. However, starting a few versions ago, this began happening. Possibly related, next to "Cite" is "Share." When I click on that, it does not work. I have already checked for plugins and such but can't find any ad blockers besides what is built into v. 89 and higher. I can't do my job with this situation. I've been a FF user for decades but I'm having to go to Chrome, which I really hate, in order to get work done for students. IPlease help me. don't need or use the newest features. Perhaps I sahould simply find an executable for, say, v. 80. Thanks.

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

I have this issue in many PCs updated to the latest Firefox versions. After openening some tabs to access web pages (mainly google.com) after some time when opening a new tab the page will not load in the new tab and whatever you do no new tab gets internet access. If you close Firefox and re open it works for some time/tabs and then it happens again... When working in private mode this does not happen.

I have tried the following:

- Delete all cookies and temp files
- Delete profile and created a new one transferring only bookmars
- Reinstalled Firefox

Please help!

Every time I click on a link from any browser page, I get a page that says to try again, like couldn't connect error message to the effect. Once I click on the try again button it loads just fine. Is this a browser issue or have I possibly been hacked and the hacker is getting my info forwarded to him/her causing the browser to not recognize the command, and then once I click try again it goes on like normal?

Version 93.0 (64 bit) is not opening or playing Fox News videos? This just happened on both my laptop & desktop machines running Windows 10. It recognizes them as a selectable link but there is no response. There is no issue with other browsers. I opened Firefox in SAFE Mode and they still wouldn't play. I can't find any error reports.

We have a problem on 2 out of 41 computers running firefox. At a random intervals google.com stops working. Clearing cache sometimes helps, but not always. The problem dissapears after some time. The error message is "Secure connection failed" - Apparently the website did not send any creditentials. (I don't have screenshot at this time, it returned to normal again just before I got to the user having this issue)

The problem exists only on two computers, and only in Firefox. Edge and Chrome are working without any problems on both machines.
