Not even an exaggeration. It's only 9 pm and I've already submitted over 80 crashes for today alone.

For Hardware Acceleration, I've tried to disable and enable and disable it again with no change. I tried to read around and turned on "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" as well, hearing that some people have tried that with results. I do not have an actively scanning antivirus running, nor firewall. I had this issue before the upgrade to Quantum. I did a completely clean upgrade in hopes of fixing it, and I'm still having issues. Daily. It's been ongoing for several months at this point.

Here's some of the IDs of the last reports: 10 each. Unsubmitted reports:

I have had an issue with Firefox for a while now where it will randomly crash. It will completely close without warning and does not start back up afterward. Under the tap Help and troubleshooting information, I pressed refresh Firefox and the issue didn't happen for almost a week. The crashing is random. In addition it changed my desired search engine from google to yahoo.

Hi there, Firefox Community,

I am looking for an answer why FireFox is showing my Wordpress Blog page in a wrong format. Edge, Chrome and Safari are showing my blog page in the correct format:

https://haraldlabout.nl/fotografie/blog/

In the uploaded images you can see the differences. The one with the small blog items is the correct one. A couple of months ago there was no problem with FF and it was also displaying the Blog page correctly.

So the question is: whats wrong and how do I correct this.

Hope to find an answer her, any help is much appreciated.

Greetings from the Netherlands,

Harald

https://www.thisisanfield.com/ is showing me a version of itself that is 3 days old. (For example, right now, the main headline is a "preview" for a game that happened 3 days ago - see first image).

1. A new "private browsing" window shows the up-to-date version (second image)

2. If I clear all cookies related to this site (and the ad blocker is disabled), I get the up-to-date version once... and then when I reload, it goes back to the older version.

3. No such problem in Chrome.

PS I cleared the whole cache too, that didn't help.

This happens even when I set my homepage to something different.

Nothing seems to be helping to restore the screenshot option, because I have tried all the suggestions except refreshing Firefox, which I really don't want to do having read comments saying that this lost files and caused problems. I really need the screenshot option. I've looked under extensions.screenshots.disabled and it is set to "false". I restarted Firefox. The screenshot extension is listed in the Help>Troubleshooting Information. So now what do I do? I don't understand why it vanished in the first place. I am NOT good with computers.

I use an HP G60 with Windows 10 Pro and Firefox 63. A missing coprocessor driver caused it to reject any non-MS or non-HP software. I could run the PortableApps suite from a flash drive, except for Firefox, which couldn't find a profile. I replaced the driver. Now it runs okay but downloaded regular Firefox still wouldn't run for the same reason. I uninstalled with Revo Uninstaller and a search for every possible remainder, reinstalled, and now it works, but all of my settings revert back to default as soon as I close it. This makes it useless to me. It won't keep my start page, download location, privacy preferences, and everything else that I have changed under options.

When I work from home and I connect to my client's network via Crosslink VPN, Firefox shows the "Connection not secure" warning page with "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" for

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=firefox+insecure+connection+warning&t=ffab

and

https://www.google.co.uk/

which is making my life quite difficult! Chrome works but I haven't got Chrome customised to my liking or with my passwords etc.

I don't really know what it's doing but I suspect some certificate has gone missing over the VPN link. Is there a fix?

Thanks Adam

How to put graphical Reminder on the website which article/post/blog was latest read?

Hi,

I have several websites where RSS is not possible so unfortunately there is no way to immediately forward in real time every single new blog / article / post / feed to email address. Been researching RSS Feeds desktop or web application and neither of them offer both of my main requirements: unlimited feeds and particularly ability to permanently manually delete particular post/feed/blog. Having it deleted automatically after particular time period has passed is unacceptable for me. The feed, on RSS Feeds application must be able to be manually deleted by me but as i said i haven't found free of charge application offering this.

So I got different idea but not sure how to do it: Since websites have many (few hundreds) DAILY new articles/feeds posted, I would like to manually put on webpage some extremely easy and fast to be seen, while scrolling up and down, reminder (preferable graphical) which post was latest reviewed by me even if it goes to older page.

So next time when i run Firefox or when i reopen the same website (webpage), i will see very soon which feed was reviewed by me as the latest one and from there i can go to next one which was posted later after the one which was latest reviewed by me.

This way, i would not need to all the time write down the title which one was latest reviewed and every time search for it manually when i come back to the website next time. Particularly if that latest reviewed feed/post gets to some of older webpages, e.g. page 2 or 3 etc, i will save a lot of time not needing to search that feed.

I wonder if such firefox plugin or any other type of application exist?

Your answer would be highly appreciated, thank you!
