When I try to upload an image to Firefox Developer Edition my browser freezes and doesn't unfreeze until I force it to quit. This has been happening consistently without fail for about 3 weeks and I can't really figure out how anyone else has gotten around this.

OS X Mojave (full release) - FF freezes if trying to rename a file to save

Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) OS X Mojave - 10.14 - live public full release (i.e. not the Beta) MacBook Pro, with menu bar

Example: Using Google, go to Images tab. Right click on an image and select "Save image as". If you click on the file name, as you want to change the name, FF freezes.

Not only does it freeze but right clicking on the icon in the Dock only shows "Quit" (not Force quit) and that does nothing. Furthermore, it locks you out from being able to use the Apple symbol (top left) to get to "Force quit" that way. Only solution I have found so far is a forced reboot (i.e. power off/on).

I can reproduce this every time.

If anyone wants more info just let me know what you want to know. I suspect that, given Mojave has only been live a few hours, that a lot more people might run into this in the coming days.

My Firefox on my new Mac keeps crashing every time I try to attach a PDF file to an email or upload a photo to Facebook. Every time, whenever I try to use the uploader. Not a Mac problem.

I can't submit a crash report because there are no crash reports to produce. I don't want to have to go back to Chrome but I guess I might have to.

Save dialog in Firefox on macOS Mojave (beta) causes freezing of the browser.

Hi, I'm running Firefox (both Quantum/Beta and main stable versions tested) on macOS Mojave (newest Beta). The behavior is the same - after File dialog is opened, I can do few actions (e.g. browse few folders, even successfully save) but if I leave it open too long, it stops responding causing the entire Firefox to freeze.

Note that I can save or select a file as long as it is done quickly - "save as ...", then select folder from list of the recent ones and click save. But if you start browsing or creating new folder, or changing file name - it all freezes.

The freezing happens regardless of website or whether it is “save” from Firefox menu or from a web app (eg Google Mail - saving attachment).

I am on the latest Firefox (62.0.2) and macOS Mojave. Whenever I open the Firefox print or save menu, or any similar menu, and try to interact with a textbox, the entire browser becomes unresponsive and I have no choice but to force quit. I have used Firefox before but not very recently so I do not know if this is a recent issue or if it has always existed. I do not have any add-ons or themes installed. I tried Firefox 61and the issue still exists. I'm now thinking it could be an issue with my computer. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
