We have a page that showes total work times of employees on a timeline which holds data for one year. This totals in 106219 nodes on that page. Previous versions of FireFox did not had issues with this, other browsers (Opera, Chrome, Edge) have also no issues and render the page in about 2 - 3 seconds. Not so Version 90.0.2 (32 bit). It now takes 4 minutes to render this page completely. Trying to debug this is impossible cause during rendering the browser is not responsive at all. Is this a bug that sneaked in or what can we do? This happens on fresh installs of Windows 10 with fresh installs of FireFox, that said it's not something that could be reset or cleaned etc. Any Ideas as to why FireFox struggles now with above mentioned number of nodes as oposed to earlier versions?

For about a month now I have had an issue with Firefox where suddenly the search bar (with Google search) stops working. I input text, press enter but nothing happens. No page is loaded. I see the google search URL that the browser is trying to reach, and I see in the network tool that the request is made but nothing appears after that. Page doesn't change and response is not registered in the network tool. Also, my GMail account tabs stop working, and trying to refresh them, GMail freezes while loading.

If I restart Firefox all starts working, until the problem starts happening again (can be minutes or hours, I guess it depends on usage)

Another colleague of mine has the exact same problem.

I tried with NO success: - Clearing all cache and data; - Disabling all extensions; - Running firefox in troubleshoot mode; - Refresh Firefox; - Complete uninstall, with profile folder removal and start from scratch; - Disabling hardware acceleration; - Setting "browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar" to false; - Disabling "network.http.http3.enabled"; - Setting Proxy to "No Proxy";

All works on another browsers.

Can someone advise on how to further troubleshoot and fix this issue?

I think I'm about to give up with this 'get help' thingy...everytime I press Enter/return carriage it disappears!

I don't like update 89. If you want a detailed reason from me then let's just say I have old eyes and I agree with all the complaints I've read so far. So, as I always make a recovery point before updating, I've rolled back my computer to 88 and will be staying there, thank you.

Now I would like a way to stop the annoying update notice. Please don't tell me to make files and scripts and mess with the registry...I mean, for goodness sakes, where's the button or the "opt out" thingy?

I will not be updating again until I read that I can keep the look I had without having to 'add-on' or try themes or heaven forbid make my own.

If security changes were Firefox's reasons for updating fair enough...but how did the look of a piece of software become a security issue? If this is 'new fresh' I don't want it, I'll just stay old and stale thanks.

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

Trying to use the seach box in the centre of the Firefox homepage (google search engine) .. everything I type goes up to the address bar . Tried changing settings - I see there's a search box option in the 'tool bar' which looks to be up at the side of the address bar. cant understand why we need another one as well as the one in the centre.

Also by turning off suggestions and not choosing the 'search box option in the 'tool bar' , the address bar is now only accepting URLs so searching isnt working.

So ..1. Is the search box in the centre no use?

        2.  Does search work with all suggestions turned off?

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

I'm out of tricks here. Last night I updated Windows on my desktop (Windows 10) and after several hiccups and restarts the computer is operating correctly...except for Firefox. The browser window opens normally but clicking on any bookmark or typing a web addy manually does nothing...it just stays blank. When using a bookmark, no address propagates to the address bar. In an effort to fix this I have done Firefox refresh (a few times now), run Firefox in troubleshoot mode (a few times and at least once this caused Firefox to crash), uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (twice, second time WITHOUT saving prior account settings), restarted computer and uninstalled adblocker.

Absolutely NO change from any of this. My laptop (Apple with Firefox) works fine and the desktop WILL browse just fine on MS Edge, so this is not a connectivity problem. Any ideas on fixing this would be greatly appreciated. TIA

When hit shift and click somewhere in the webpage or type something, the "Page Inpector" keep poping out (see attached screenshot), this is so annoying that I basically cannot type any capital letters. I have tried the option "Refresh Firefox", the browser seems to be set to default mode, but the issue still exsist. Tried for a new keyboard, the same. I searched the forum, but unfortunately cannot find a proper solution. Hope anyone can help me with this, otherwise I have to consider to change my default browser (which I really don't want to because of such a simple but annoying problem).

Thanks a lot for anyone could provide any suggestions !

I have Firefox on a couple of (Windows 10) PCs. This problem is happening on one of them. It has two profiles (users), and it's happening on both.

If I open Firefox, and then trying going to google.co.uk, or do any google related search, almost everytime there is an obvious 30-40s delay. Indeed, during this time I can even open up other web sites (immediate), and trying google.co.uk again, and delay continues to occur.

Opening up the Network Console in Firefox, the GET request can be seem and then like clockwork there is about a 41000ms delay until it then continues.

If I open in TroubleShoot mode, same issue.

If I open in a Private Window, the problem does NOT occur.

This problem does NOT happen on my other PCs with Firefox, or any other browser on the PC in question.

This is very frustrating :( You open firefox to do a google search and it takes tens of seconds to resolve (on the first attempt) :(
