Since upgrading to 29. Firefox snags with a beachball that spends for seconds. How can I prevent the snag?

There were two upgrades very close together. I upgraded and now have 29.0. No matter whether I'm going to an address, typing into a box, or waiting for a website to load, the Mac "beach ball" will spin for a few seconds before loading. I use the default theme. I have minimal - (Xmarks and Trend micro), which weren't a problem before. Is there something I can do besides disabling the add-ons?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.

HI- Recently lots of my fonts have started displaying as question marks on certain sites (such as the autofill on Google). If I uncheck the box in prefs that allows websites to use their own fonts, it's fine. But then the sites look nasty. I've reinstalled Firefox 69.0.2 but its no better. It's a work Apple mac so I can't access all the settings but the issue is only on Firefox. Please don't make me use Chrome! Thanks

Even when I search in Preferences --> Search --> Find more search engines, Google does not even appear in the results. When I visit Google.com, the green plus sign does not appear on the magnifying glass in the search toolbar, but it shows up on almost every other site. Even on this Mozilla Support site, the green plus sign appears and I can add this to my search toolbar, but I can't add Google.

This all started when I updated my Mac to Catalina, but I don't see why that would affect my ability to simply add Google to my search toolbar. Someone please help, this is driving me insane.

In addition to the question below, another problem is not only are my email responses erased when the browser refreshes, the message itself is no longer available. I have to start from the beginning point in my email list, rather than remain on the once-opened email.

By the way, I have reset and restored my Firefox as a solution, which didn't help. I did this twice, following instructions. The process was tedious and I had to recover quite a bit of information, not to mention a problem with merged bookmarks. I'd like to avoid this solution, at all costs. Here's what I said earlier. Again, thanks for any/all help you can provide.

For the past several weeks, now, I've noticed that my browser "refreshes" the feed more frequently, so frequently, in fact, that any emails, forms, or survey questions that I am answering get wiped clean. This started happening with the latest update. I am unable to locate any setting in my preferences that will stop the constant refreshment (reload? page update?). This is also frustrating when trying to make purchases on line, and as I said, write emails, complete forms, complete surveys, etc.

Thank you in advance for quickly resolving this most frustrating problem? I use a Mac, and am running Mavericks. This problem was present with the previous OS, too. Thanks again!

I want to be able to open a new tab in an existing window from the command line on Mac OS X. The help indicates that I should be able to do this by running:

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin --new-tab <url>

but this attempts to open a second copy of the browser, which results in the error:

"A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

Is there a way round this?

I was on the beta update channel until FF 57.0 beta took out my add-ons. So I deleted it and downloaded FF 56.0 regular release. Since then, I cannot quit FF without it crashing. EVERY SINGLE TIME: crash reporter comes up if I don't Force Quit first. I quit FF multiple times a day to clear cookies and cruft for security reasons, and this is a PITA. I saw another thread with a similar complant, and the suggestion was to uncheck 'clear history on close' or something like that, which is not acceptable to me: the ability to customize this sort of thing is why I use FF.

I have tried: clearing history and cookies, rebooting computer, and opening FF with no other program open yet: crash. being signed in to FF to sync bookmarks: crash not being signed in to FF: crash closing all windows before quitting: crash windows open at quitting: crash verifying legacy app booleans in about:config were set to defaults (they were): crash Wifi on, or wifi off: crash

Very frustrated. Any help appreciated.
