I have a frequent problem with dead tabs in FF v121 on Win 10. I tend to have many tabs open (like 15 say) and it sometimes happens that a tab becomes completely unresponsive. It could be a new tab that I open or an existing one that I click on. When this happens I can't do anything. Page reload, clicking on links, entering an address by hand ... nothing happens. The tab is simply dead. The tab is essentially dead. After some time (usually 1-2 minutes) the problem resolves itself. However, it is very annoying as it happens almost every day and sometimes even several times a day. So I am looking for a way to solve, otherwise I will have to move to Brave or some other alternative. Any ideas what could be the problem? I also do not want to restart my browser several times a day as that logs me out of all websites I use including Whatsapp (I delete cookies when closing FF).

How can I turn this message off? Some sites I visit give me that message, it shows up when I'm typing a reply to something which pushes the page lower and fouls up my ability to keep typing, then if goes away, comes back, goes away ... I just want to kill the message entirely. I'm not worried about speed, there's nothing to fix, I just want the message gone.

I just recently had Firefox updated, and I'm already having problems regarding notifications. When a notification starts up while I'm typing, it takes me out of it and I have to click back in. I had to turn them off temporarily to avoid flow breaking. This never ever happened before the update as the notifs worked perfectly fine w/ no interrupting. I also noticed in the taskbar, each notification is treated like a new browser window for some reason. This may be related to my current issue.

Firefox is frequently deleting entries made on websites. I am entering information in boxes (like this one) on websites when suddenly FF bails out, the data vanishes off the screen and leaves me back where I started. It happened several times attempting to post this question. This seems to have something to do with hitting a key or the space bar--but what and why eludes me. I have tried changing settings on trackpad and mouse without any impact. Although this is a recent issue with a new computer, the issue does not occur using the same computer on Chrome. Any ideas?

How to debug FF startup, not using the profiler? After reboot, FF always takes 14 minutes to start the first time.

I run the latest Firefox (v122.0.1) on Windows 11.

Since last week, FF takes 14 minutes to start the first time after a boot. :-( Usually FF starts in ~3 seconds.

I reboot the laptop. I wait a minute. I start FF. Nothing happens for 14 minutes. Finally the browser window suddenly appear and everything is working normally. I exit FF (no remaining firefox.exe processes are running). I start FF again. Now it starts immediately as usual. :-) But: I reboot and start FF. Again, it takes 14 minutes to start. This is reproduceable every time.

I haven't tried to *solve* this by refreshing FF or simillar. Right now I'm more interested in debugging this and finding out what is wrong.

I found https://profiler.firefox.com/docs/#/./guide-startup-shutdown which states how to automatically start the profiler at startup.

12:40 I boot the computer, login and wait a minute. 12:43 I start CMD.EXE and run:

 cd c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP=1
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP_ENTRIES=20000000
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP_INTERVAL=100

12:44 I run:

 firefox.exe

No GUI appear. (it won't appear until 14 minutes later) I open the Task Manager and see one (1) firefox.exe process, taking 0% cpu. (pid 17668) 12:48 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:50 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:52 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:54 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:56 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:58 The browser GUI finally appear. Everything is now normal. It is showing one (1) tab with my start-page (google) just as it should. (my Task Manager now show 12 FF processes running, with various options) 12:59 I click the icon to stop the profiling.

I open the profile. [Profile Info] says:

 Recording started: Sat 17 Feb 2024 12:58
 Recording length: 1m12s 

So my profiling data don't show what happens between 12:44 to 12:58 :-(

Just for the sake of it, I'm attaching a pic of the first 10 seconds of the profile (at 12:58).

PS: Between 12:44 and 12:58 no FF window exists at all. Alt+Tab show no FF and in Task Manager I can't do any "Window" management, it is greyed out. I.e. no FF window exists for this process.

Question 1) What should I do to debug what happens between 12:44 and 12:58?

Question 2) How can it be that it takes 14 minutes to start FF from scratch (boot) while it starts quickly (~3 seconds) if it has been started once? I mean, all firefox.exe processes are gone when I exit FF, so starting FF again should be like starting from scratch, but apparently something is different.

Question 3) Is it normal that a FF, with only one tab (https://google.com/), run 12 processes in Task Manager?

I have the same problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421734 it's not a pdf. If I want to print a shipping label from eBay using Firefox nothing happens if I try to make it bigger. I can make it smaller but it is too small to begin with. If I use Brave or Edge (using the same printer) it works I can adjust it and make it bigger up to 200 %. I have already reset the printer options in Firefox and tried when disabling all add-ons.

Are there any reports of erased history lately? Perhaps since v122.01? I had history that goes way back.

I few of my profiles have a month's worth I don't sync. I have these two profiles in particular that are quite distinct from one another. Nothing in common, but both only have history for the past two days. None of my related settings have been altered.

I tried replacing places.sqlite from backups, but unless they were backed up that way, it did not help.

I gather there can be different kinds of screen flicker and many causes. My problem is with one particular website, https://www.yucatan.com.mx/ , and it didn't used to happen. When I open the site or pages in it, trying to scroll down just results in continuous, rapid flickering and no scrolling. I have to pull the scroll bar down just enough to get the page started, and then the mouse scroll wheel works. After looking at other people's similar issues, I have tried disabling smooth scrolling and the pop-up blocker. When I open the same site with a different browser and try to scroll down, I do see about two frames of flicker, but it's almost unnoticeable, and scrolling works OK. I restarted Firefox in troubleshooting mode and was able to get it to behave like that other browser at this site -- just a momentary flicker and no interference with scrolling. OK... where does that leave me? I can't use troubleshooting mode all the time. And it's just this one website that presents the problematic behavior. Thanks for your thoughts, -Rick

What else may I try, as Firefox freezes after restarting (when not restarting in SafeMode)?
