Periodically, randomly is all I can say, a message window opens when I power on with a statement about "UpdateBrowserForApp" having stopped working; and then I'm given options to close the program, etc. See attached screenshot.

Firefox is the only browser I use. Is this message from Firefox or does it mean I should do something related to Firefox?

Thanks for whatever info or help you can give. Lee

Firefox tabs crash repeatedly for a particular email website that I am using. Specifically, the tab crashes when I click on an link to open an email and see the email contents. The tab will not crash every single time, just occasionally (i.e. sometimes I am able to read an email without the tab crashing, other times not). I do not think that the timing of the crashing has anything to do with the email contents (e.g. length, format). I also do not think that the tab crashing issue is happening for any other websites. The crashing started recently, sometime late December.

I installed the latest version of Firefox, and I cleared the web cache, but nothing has changed.

Any suggestions?

I have found that after a short time Firefox stops displaying images in Facebook and only shows a description of what it thinks the image is. I have Firefox version 95.0.2 (64-bit) with Windows 10 with the latest updates installed. I have a Dell laptop with an i7 cpu and 63 GB of RAM. This does not occur with other browsers. Reloading the page does not fix it, only a complete shutdown and startup of Firefox.

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

I've been teaching my young daughter how to use a computer, and we chose firefox as a browser she can use to do some things online - in particular she's been doing Math lessons using https://www.themathsfactor.com

After the past few weeks I've noticed that sound from that site no longer seems to work after 1 or 2 days. Embedded videos work, but sound where the site has a character that tells her what to do - stops working. If I restart the browser it starts working again - however refreshing the page does not. This is something recent, as older versions of firefox did not seem to do this. I'm wondering if there is some change/memory leak that might cause this?

Hey everyone,

I recently had to do a PC reset and thus lost all my files, settings and programs FF included. Upon reinstalling I don't have the option to save, view or sync credit card info. The whole section is missing from my settings.

I have already gone to about:config and enabled both of the autofill settings to true (as suggested in other Q&As) and restarted multiple times with no luck.

Any ideas why I would be missing this option?

As of today, I can no longer log into my Express Scripts account on my PC using Firefox. I can log into virtually everything else using Firefox (i.e., my bank accounts, credit card accounts, brokerage accounts, etc.), but not Express Scripts. Previously, I had no problem with this login - over many, many years. And I find that I can log into Express Scripts easily using Edge, Chrome or (on my iPhone) Safari - so the problem would seems to be with Firefox. Specifically, when I try to log into Express Scripts using Firefox, a new small pop-up window arrives noting that, "This site is asking you to sign in." - the pop-up asks for user name and password to be typed into the pop-up, and provides a "sign in" and a "cancel" button - if the user name and password are inserted into the pop-up and "sign in" is clicked, the pop-up simply clears the user name and password - if "cancel" is clicked, the pop-up disappears, the original Express Scripts login window goes briefly to a "we'll be right with you" screen, then reverts back to the original login screen.

Update: The issue comes from the latest NoScript update v11.2.14 (2021-12-30). Disabling the extension fixed the issue. I'll report it to them. The report is available here.

Hi,

Since the latest stable firefox version (95.0.2), it seems like opening a video file which can be played in the browser, like a mp4 file for instance, will result in an error:

   05:05:35,632 Uncaught TypeError: videoElement is undefined
       setFocusToVideoElement chrome://global/content/TopLevelVideoDocument.js:21
       <anonymous> chrome://global/content/TopLevelVideoDocument.js:29
   TopLevelVideoDocument.js:21:5  

The video will plays normally, just to make it clear. Just that the error will appear in the console. And the error will keep reoccuring. Here are some video samples if you need, to see if the error is individual or global.

I checked the source changes on that file but wasn't able to find any change there so not sure why this error is occuring atm, must be a deeper reason. I was aware of that error because i'm using a GreaseMonkey script to automatically redirect some links opened to only have the video displayed with custom settings to avoid having to allow some JavaScript. The error occurs independently of the extension (checked with the script disabled, and the extension disabled).

Clicking Print brings up the web page, looks fine. When I click the Print Button (with the Fit to Page Width icon lit) it only prints a much larger image. Only the upper left part of the image shown in the print window is printed. Ctrl-P does the same. This started a week or so ago. If I select the test on the page, then copy it, insert it into my word processor, then Print from the Word Processor it prints fine, correct size.

Ideas?

When I try to see my history using the History -> Show All History menu-item or Hamburger -> History -> Manage History menu-item, Firefox displays a Library window without any history. My Settings' History "Firefox will" has been set to "Remember History" for many years. I shut down my laptop and turned on my laptop and saw the same behavior.

I would have attached to this message a screenshot that shows the Library window, but could not because when uploading my screenshot, the Uploaded images' area showed a rotating circle that kept rotating for at least ten minutes and I got tired of it wasting my valuable time. The image's size is 63 KB. I tried uploading using Firefox and Chrome and both showed the same behavior.

I need to constantly jump between google search and wikipedia and i hate using the mouse. Normaly when you click the url bar you can type "@wikipedia" or "@google" to change the search engine to wiki, while typing anything else will prompt a google search. BUT when you use the shortcut "ctrl + e" or "ctrl + k" a box appears in front of the url bar with "Google", just like it would whe you typed "@google". This actually blocks "@wikipedia" from being registered making the whole feature almost useless and forcing me to invent workarounds to things that should be VERY simple in a browser. Any ideas how to fix this?
