Every version from 69 to 80 crashes and then will not restart unless I log off or restart the computer. The crashes happen every time. I have uninstalled. I have have installed different versions. It will not start in safe mode after a crash. I can start in safe mode after a restart of the computer, it still crashes soon after.

I only have windows defender at the moment and I have that turned off right now. Windows 10 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox stopped while i was on YouTube it asked me if i want to go in safemode or refresh Forefox. I didn't choose either. my first thought i was getting hacked that happens a lot on YouTube. then by its self it said it was going to refresh Firefox then the browser closed. when it came back on it was like i had just installed it. it was asking me all those questions. then it updated then closed again then opened asking me all those questions again then i signed in an all my passowords are gone again. Lucky for me i saved a back-up a few months ago so i only lost a few passwords. the spell checker doesn't work it keeps changing my set home page to Mozilla. I go to a website while i'm there i get that same message safe mode or refresh. now it doesn't give me that message it just refreshes its self without asking me and does it around every 20 minutes so i stopped setting it back up. but tis still doing it. so i uninstalled firefox cleanerd all the leftover files and resistry keys rebooted then downloaded a new copy of the forefox installer. then installed i answered all the questions then set everything up and before i could go to a web site it refreshed its self How do I make it stop? Its refreshed 2 times while i tried to type this so i had to write it in note pad then copy it then paste it here.

Everytime i start firefox after starting my computer I am logged out of all websites, for example youtube and netflix. I have tried every solution I oculd find online but none of them helps. I have cookies enabled and everything, but nothing works. This is why I keep having to download chrome, and its getting very annoying. It does remember me if I just restart the browser tho.

Unable to change color for visited websites

erride Color of Visited Websites since version 69.0.3

Since after version Firefox 69.0.3 32bit, the visited website color can not be altered no matter what variation I try within General - Language and Appears - Color. Background and Text work fine though. I can change the color on the color screen but it has no effect when I have visited websites after a Google search. I pick the color via the rainbox color screen in the Color section.

Being able to change the color for visited website to Red would make my life easier while doing searches to avoid repeatedly going to the same websites previously looked at. Just for your info, I change the colors of the Background to Black, Text to White, and non-visited website to white. I have low vision and it makes it easier on my eyes.

I have this problem on my old Windows 7 with every version upward. I just got a brand new Dell with Windows 10 and it has the exact same problem with both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of 84.0.2. Hence, this is why I have not bothered submitting this issue until I got my Windows 10 unit.

On the Tools - Options - General - Language and Appearance - Color, I have tried both Always Override and Use only with Hight Contrast Theme. Checking and un-checking Use System color and Underline weblinks had no effect. None of these variations had no effect.

Don't save new autofill addresses

I want Firefox to autofill my saved addresses, but I don't want it to automatically save new addresses.

I fill in all kinds of forms, with variations of my name, address, etc., and with other people's info. Firefox saves those variations and autofill becomes effectively unreliable, filled with dozens of erroneous entries, until I manually delete all but the three I want to keep.

It seems silly that there is one checkbox to control both the saving and the filling. Can we get a sub-setting where I can uncheck “save new addresses that I enter”? Or is there an about:config option for it?

When editing Google Docs the tab crashes after entering some characters. Safe Mode helps, but I cannot fix the issue without using Safe Mode

I am using Windows 10 Pro 1903, Firefox 69.0.3 (64-bit)

When I edit a document in Google Docs after entering some characters the tab crashes. If I stay on the same tab it stops to respond and after a few seconds it works again and all the characters I have entered appear. if i change to another tab and then back to the Google Docs tab then some round "reload" icon is shown, tab reloads and all is back to normal. When I change to about:performance when the Google Doc tab is hanging then it does not show up there anymore. After it is reloaded like 10 seconds later it appears again in about:performance.

When I start Firefox in Safe Mode then everything works fine and I cannot reproduce the issue. I then tried to narrow down the issue by disabling Hardware Acceleration, disabling all the extensions, plugins and making sure default theme is being used. But the issue was still there when I did not use Safe Mode.

I then created a new profile and after that did not help, I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the program files folder manually, reinstalled but the issue is still there. I also deleted all the Firefox System Add-Ons but still no success.

The issue happens with my normal Firefox in Private Mode, too.

How can I troubleshoot this further? What does Safe Mode do in addition to the things I have mentioned above?
