Good evening. I'm seeking some help with an issue I'm having with Firefox.

As stated above, Firefox insta-crashes on startup. Hangs on opening in troubleshoot mode, then crashes after another 20 seconds and asks me to submit a report.

I believe this may have to do with the amount of tabs I had open when last using the browser. This morning I opened it up with about 7.8k tabs, and then closed it after adding another hundred. After trying to open the browser again, that's when the issues started. Until that point, the browser had been responsive and stable.

I've tried doing fresh installs of the browser and inserting the old data from the old profile, restoring to yesterday, and even trying without internet connection.

I have a Ryzen 5600X and 32GB of RAM, so I do not believe system resources are an issue.

Attached are some images. If any help could be provided, that'd be much appreciated.

Hi!

I have encountered this really annoying problem on my Firefox app. I give details below. I installed Mozilla Firefox on my freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I tried installing it from Snap Store. However, when I tried saving an image from the web (or, truthfully, any other file chosen by the "Save As..." selection), nothing happened, again and again. I tried many things, including following relevant guides from the internet, but nothing changed. The Firefox version is the 107.0.1 (64-bit), a Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002- 1.0. I, also, have to report some other things, as well. When tried installing the browser from the internet (I downloaded a compressed file, containing the executable), the same function seemed to work. I, now, use the executable to access Firefox. However, firstly, because other difficulties (not problems, but difficulties) arise and, secondly, because I'd really like ti use, mostly, snaps, I report this bug here requesting for help, as well.

Any helpful answer will be appreciated!

Thank you!

Okay, this is a weird one. I have been streaming the video feed from a .tv site for several years (I like to chat and discuss episodes with other watchers). Last night, the feed wouldn't load; I thought this may have been some slowness in my internet connection, so I shut my Windows laptop down and went to bed. I got up this morning and logged in, and the feed was doing the same thing (loading bar; three dots cycling over and over). I checked if there were any new updates for Firefox (there were not), and likewise any changes to the Windows codecs (all files are current). The rest of the browser (other open tabs) are working normally. Cleared the cache - same result. The feed was playing normally for the other site viewers, as I could see them commenting on the episodes that were currently playing. I then checked if I could access the .tv site via a different browser (MS Edge...ugh); and the site loaded and played normally. I checked it on my phone's browser; site played like it usually does. Hmmm... I then opened Firefox Private Browsing, typed in the site... and it's playing normally. Still nothing on my usual browser. Any Ideas?

Is it possible to disable hardware decoding for VP9 exclusively. Watching a 4K video on YouTube results in anywhere from 10% to 50% of frames dropped, which is not a great experience. If I disable video decoding entirely I get 0% dropped frames, but with 20% cpu overhead, therefore I'd like to disable it for VP9, but keep it for H264.

Firefox has just started crashing on startup every time I try to open it out of the blue with no changes to anything in the browser. I've tried opening in troubleshooting mode, still crashes instantly. I've refreshed, revo uninstalled and cleaned everything firefox related off my system and reinstalled but still have the exact same issue with a fresh install.


I managed to get the crash log from the backed up folders when it reinstalled. Any suggestions?

How to inhibit animations/twinkles/flickers/waves that are replacing loading elements ?

SUMMARY : I would like to disable all animations/twinkles/flickers/waves that indicate some elements inside a Web page are missing and are being loaded. I think all these "animations" make my computer lag.

Hello,

I would say that since Firefox 89, my browser has begun lagging like hell when it loaded some rich Web pages. And I have the impression it is worse with Firefox 107. When I'm saying Firefox lags, I mean it uses heavily my CPU (over 50%), and Firefox is almost unresponsive (for complex Web pages. For Wikipedia or Amazon, I don't have any trouble for example). I have to wait for Firefox to finish to load the full Web page and to display all elements before the usage of my CPU gets back to 1%. And it can take several minutes for some sites/pages.

The problem doesn't come from my connection. And the trouble doesn't come from sites I'm visiting because once all elements are loaded Firefox is responsive.

More precisely, for some sites, when I start loading the page, Firefox replaces missing (i.e not yet displayed/loaded) elements of the page with a rectangle of the same size of the element and each one of these rectangles are slightly flickering to inform me that AT THIS PLACE there is an element of the same size that is going to be displayed. When I'm saying "flickering" I could say it looks like a rectangle with a gradient of gray that is "waving" slowly. Sometimes it's a very light gray, sometimes a dark gray. It depends of the sites.

And all these kind of "animations" are killing my computer. And I would like to totally disable these animations/twinkles/flickers/waves. For example, would it be possible to replace the color gradient animation with a static pink color ?

I have a 10 years old laptop with iGPU (an Intel i5-2410M exactly) without discrete GPU. That doesn't help. I know. For me the trouble comes from there. But currently I can't afford buying a new laptop. I think all my drivers are up to date as my Ubuntu 20.04 is up to date.

WHAT I'VE TRIED WITHOUT SUCCESS 1. I removed ‘.mozilla’ folder in my profile (i.e the folder that contains all addons and customizations) 2. Firefox in Safe Mode 3. I disabled hardware acceleration 4. I've tried Firefox uses too much memory or CPU resources

I really would appreciate your help because now, surfing on some sites becomes a big pain and I'm becoming mad (LOL).

Thank you in advance :)

Firefox 10x.x will stop rendering pages without giving an error. MX Linux. Nothing showing up in dmesg Not detecting any pattern to when this major issue happens; simply opening a page from a search engine result in a tab might cause it. could run 20 tabs of Youtube often without issue. Issue will only allow one level on Menu to show (can't reach Browser Tools to troubleshoot), selecting a tab window usless wont not move. If issue happens in a video window the video will play but not update display. If I resize Firefox, its window will update frame by frame

In up date Firefox Version 107.0.1 (64-bit Windows 10) Widevine plugin 4.10.2557.0 constantly crashes when I open Netlix page. Video does not play and I get Netlix error F7702-1003.

There was no problem in previous version, but after update, Firefox also updated the Widevine plugin and it crashes ever since.

Reinstalling did not help.

Recently, I've decided to install Firefox since another program I'd like to use is dependent on it. After the simple installation the browser opened, but I carelessly closed all the tabs and it suddenly crashed. Since then no matter how many times a restart my PC, reinstall the browser or delete files, it simply closes as soon as it opens. It seems to be indicative of a file preventing it from starting, or it's missing a file, but I thought I'd ask for assistance before giving up.

Like the title states, every time I open Firefox the application freezes for about thirty seconds to a minute at a time. This is highly inconvenient and annoying. I've reset Firefox completely and the issue was not fixed, as well as doing a clean install. Because of how often and consistent the problem has been, I've had trouble finding out the source of this issue. This has been an issue for at minimum a month, most likely longer but my first mention of it to one of my friends was a month ago.

Firefox very slow, hangs or not responding on Windows 10 after last update late November 2022 to version ? 107.0.1. I am an end user, not versed in IT. I have used Firefox as a fast and safe browser for approximately 20 years and with Adblock Plus for over 10 years. Previously once I refreshed or reloaded Firefox it wiped out my navigation bar and bookmarks. Some friends have said that this is a tactic to encourage change to the for-profit paid version. Also when this happens I get a window for reporting the problem to Microsoft which hangs indefinitely and I have to close it. Again is this a tactic from Microsoft to get me to select Edge and Bing as my default browser and search engine? Or is this a problem with Norton360 software or their VPN? Or is this due to a failing hard drive (not SSD), registry errors or malaware? What's up and is there a simple fix?

Hi, I'm having this annoying problem for several weeks now. I guess since the last update.

While browsing and searching online with google I normally open links in new tabs, and maintain many tabs open from session to session. After a few minutes FireFox stops loading the URL links. It opens a new tab but the page doesn't load. If I type a new address in the address bar of an existing page, the page blinks momentarily but it returns to the old page content. This happens with any link in the search page, or in any previously opened pages that I try to change to a different URL. The only way to fix it is closing and reopening FireFox. Then all the links and open tabs respond normally again, until it happens again. The time when the problem happens can be a couple of minutes or after hours.

The entire Firefox UI freezes frequently after updating to 107. The freezes occur while navigating to a page or shortly after (e.g. clicking a link or entering a search term into the search bar). The freezes last for about 2 to 10 seconds. During the freeze the entire UI is unresponsive and does not respond to any mouse or keyboard input. However, animations like the page loading spinner where the favicon is on the tab continue to move.
