Was using FF 79.0. Everything worked great. I upgraded to 80 or so a while back and found that it was taking ~7-10 seconds before FF would begin to load an initial webpage, so I used system restore to go back to 79. I've upgraded to 82.0.2 and the same thing is happening. Tried going back using system restore, but system restore failed for some reason, so I'm now stuck. I haven't had success re-installing FF 79.0. Any ideas why FF would be so slow loading a page? FYI, once I'm on that website, if I click to another page on that website, it loads quickly and normally. Only seems to be when I'm moving to a new website. I'm using Windows 7.

In the plugin "facebook Container" I have made a new "tab category" called "social media" with a blue sign. The problem is that firefox continues to open FB in the old category even if I delete it, which is also very hard to do as I have to close all my FB-tabs to be able to delete it in the options tab. Next time I use firefox or a few days later firefox has again undeleted the old FB category and again opens my FB tabs in black tabs instead of my new blue tabs. I can´t use my own new tab category as long as the old one is there and it keeps comming back after I delete it. Very annoying to say the least! Please fix this error as soon as posible, thank you.

this is a quick cut&paste of the pipes active well after chrome's closure,.. i checked in task manager,..

When I start my computer and try to open Firefox, I get the blue page with the message: "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you." This message indicates it's a stop code SDBUS internal error.

This only seems to happen with the Firefox browser, which I have set as the default browser. This does NOT happen when I open Microsoft Edge.

My laptop is an Acer Spin 1. I have not been able to update Windows 10 because the Windows Assistant says I don't have sufficient disk space. I'm currently running Windows version 1703.

I have another old Toshiba Satellite laptop, and I have no problems opening the Firefox browser, although this laptop operates very slowly.

Thank you for your assistance.

I continually have a yellow bar across the top of the page when I open Facebook on Firefox.

It says "A web page is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" then there are 2 buttons and a X next to that question.


My request is for Firefox to tell me it is Facebook causing the problem and how to get rid of it.

I need to use an earlier version of firefox because the "Google Translate In Page" addon was killed by Firefox, and this disabling has LITERALLY caused the continuous death of Covid-19 patients because we can't read about the lifesaving Covid-19 treatments on foreign sites, whose therapies are further ahead of the U.S.

I need to verify that when I load the prior version, it will allow the use of the previous addon once it's added from the addon list.

Please confirm as quickly as humanly possible.... Thank you!

Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Hi all,

Currently on the latest beta on macOS Big Sur v11 beta (20A5364e).

Crashing of tabs has at least been resolved since previous versions but I am having an endless usability issue. I can have 2-5+ tabs open and clicking on the tab itself appears dead/unresponsive. Clicking a few more times (in different areas of the tab) or selecting another tab then switching back results in the tab being selected/usable/active again.

I am unable to find any common way to replicate this or reason for it - the sites in the tabs are always very much different. It's not the web site that becomes unresponsive as even when opening multiple 'new' tabs, the same issue can occur without even loading a site.

Detailed version info included.

I have an older addon that was disabled. it's no longer supported and won't be updated. I'd like to reenable it anyway. I'm well aware of the general "risks" involved and prefer to have use to my tools.

"Download has been disabled due to security or stability issues." The best I can see is that the inclusion of optional search bar changes is the culprit. I'd be more aware however the admin on the report has hidden the comments and the bug-report is a bit lacking.

I would prefer not to turn off all add-on verification unless I absolutely must. But that's the point I've now reached. I'm using FireFox 82.0b3 on MacOS 11 Thanks.

Every day I get a Firefox popup that says, "Firefox cannot download the latest version. Download the latest version and we will help you install it". Sometimes the popup appears immediately after I open my browesr, and sometimes it appears after I've been using the browser for several hours.

I've been doing the daily download and install, but I want to know what's causing this. I'm using a Late 2015 21.5" iMac running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.7. Firefox is Version 82.0b4, set as default browser with automatic updates turned on. I've been running Beta versions of Firefox for >2 years and have not had problems with updates before this. Thanks for any suggestions and solutions!

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen
