No errors, it just doesn't show. (Whether ABP is on or off.) Same thing happened at IE.

The last issues I ran into with this section (news quiz), no matter which week I clicked on, it always and ONLY opened to one quiz from a couple of years ago. Open Slate to Slate News Quiz. Click on any week. There is text, but the news quiz never fills page.

I was on firefox today and it suddenly crashed. I haven't installed any new extensions in over a week - I try reopening it and I see that the window opens and closes instantly. I've restarted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, refreshed firefox, deleted folders that have cache in it in roaming & local, attempted to go into safe mode, tried to open the profiles. None of it fixes the problem, nor do the windows for firefox profiles and safe mode stay on enough for me to even look at it. I assume that it keeps crashing, but I can't figure out how to fix it. The browser is stuck on troubleshooting mode now.

Here's a link of how it looks like to me now (not sure if links are allowed though).

Let me know if I should give any information to help solve it.

Firefox keeps crashing, when I boot it up a prompt appears for half a second asking if I'd like to go to safe mode, but the prompt window instantly closes after half a second. I have tried refreshing the app, uninstalling, and reinstalling, and nothing seems to work. The app was working a day before this. How can I get it to work properly again? It is worth noting that I had to ask my parents to allow my computer to use firefox the day before all this happened, but after that, it worked fine. Only now there are crashes every time.

Hello,

On a fresh win10 installation, I installed the latest version of firefox (90.0.2). However, firefox won't start after that.

I tried starting from the command line in safe mode (firefox.exe -safe-mode), and I see very briefly (less than a second) a window with the title bar "Open Firefox in troubleshot Mode ?" starting to appear, but it disappears almost instantly.

A similar thing (dialog window briefly appearing) happens when I try to open the profile manager from the command line.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, with no effect.

Any idea what could be the issue ?

JP

PS : this is posted from a mac machine, hence the mistaken mac tag. The issue is about a win10 installation

For about a month, google products on firefox randomly stop working.

- I get the "Oops...error #001" in gmail, when i reload it just continues to get an error cycle until eventually it goes to network protocol error.

- Google search randomly does not work at all in the url/search bar, and once it doesn't work the tab is useless. Putting in another URL and hitting enter it appears to have loaded but of course nothing has changed.

- I have no extensions installed.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

I just installed the latest v90 upgrade. I get at least 5 sometimes as many as 7 instances of Firefox running simultaneously. Look at my screen shot of the Task Manager...Holy Sh*t! I attempted to downgrade back to v89, but Mozilla has made this option unbearable ...have to recreate your profile, all your passwords, cookies and bookmarks, an incredible hassle. Stuff like this just shouldn't happen.

Definitely NOT a well-thought out release.

Guess I'll be migrating to Chrome sooner than I thought!?

I had tried everything. I have deactivated all FOUR of my plugins and started up Firefox again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a fresh copy. I installed Firefox on an SSD even and it is still painfully slow. I have the same plugins and such on Chrome and that one opens up immediately. So I have been using Chrome a lot more lately because Firefox is opening slowly these days. Takes 15-20 seconds for Firefox to open every single time. I have deactivated each plugin one by one to see if they were causing the issue and sure enough, all of them were clean. Firefox still opens slowly.

On an unrelated note, I have been using Chrome a lot more lately also because some things on a webpage don't work on Firefox. I can't explain it. Like on the hickory farms website, I click on the Add To Cart button and it looks like it is being pressed, but nothing is added to the cart. This type of thing happens across the internet on many different sites. When I go to Chrome, everything works as it ought to. I have my settings set to Standard in Privacy and Security. I don't know where else I have to check and change things to get those buttons and other links and such to work.

I am no tech guru. Everything I have searched for help on firefox is completely foreign to me. the system crashes all the time., Settings do NOT work properly as I cannot deselect firefox as my default browser ever since it updated to 90. Now on 90.0.2, everything is a nightmare! I don't think anyone wants to spend 4-8+ hours trying to find out how to use the computer! So, if anyone can speak in plain English & not computer tech code which I do not understand, then help me please! As I look furhter down this page of questions, I have no idea how where to look & what I am supposed to be looking for. So, all I can say is I have a Windows 10 64-bit laptop with CCleaner free version, Malwarebytes free version, Smart defrag free version, Iobit uninstall without all the add-ons.

Hello,

every single time I wake up my Windows 7 Firefox refuses to load any website. It is a Firefox defect, because Windows's Internet icon shows that Internet is available. DNS is also working, while Firefox refuses to load a web. I need to wait 10-15 seconds until Firefox condescendingly loads the web I am trying to access. This bug is very annoying as it happens a few times each day :(

Hey, I have already read the other (closed) forum topics. I have the problem, that on some websites all letters from s to z aren't displayed. When I copy the text and paste it to a text editor all letters are there.

Here's what I tried according to other forum topics... - In the font properties all is set to standard fonts for 'latin' and 'other' (sorry I use Firefox in german so I don't know the correct english terms)

- Disallowing webpages to use their own fonts works, but it's no option as the websites now all have ugly fonts and don't look as they're meant to be.

I use FF 90.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 Home.

The problem occurred right away after I installed FF on a new computer. I have also tried syncing to my account and de- and reinstalling. Same problem all the time. The problem does not occur in other browsers, like Chrome, Edge, Opera. Only in FF... Any idea what I could do? It would be sad to use another browser in the future, but since I'm also a web developer it's really not an option to work like that... Any help is highly appreciated.

Cheers, Sven

Certain websites font's have gone weird in Firefox, it's not reproducable on other computers just my own.

I have looked through this community and run through:

   Set gfx.canvas.azure.backends & gfx.content.azure.backends to direct2d1.1,skia,cairo
   Set gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode to 0
   Set gfx.downloadable_fonts.otl_validation to true
   Disabled hardware acceleration

Firefox Version is: 90.0.2 64-bit Windows 10 21H1 All drivers are up to date

Attached are screenshots from Chrome (what the website is meant to look like) & Firefox - I prefer Firefox over Chrome so I would rather not move.

After 89.0.1 update on Windows, Firefox will not release the audio device, not allowing the computer to sleep.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

Facebook has become really slow on Firefox over the last week or so. It is not every time, every day, but the biggest issue is that the images in posts do not appear in a timely manner. I don't seem to have the issue with Safari or Chrome. I checked to see that I do have the most recent Firefox version. 90.0.2 (64-bit) I am on a Mac book pro. thanks!

p.s The image below is a screen shot of an example of the problem. The images never loaded, even in the time it too for me to find out how to ask the question, and then ask it

Firefox displays an icon for Facebook Container on my website's newsletter's form's email entry box. The more info states: "Allow Facebook to track you here?

This site can share your email address with Facebook, which allows Facebook to track you. Use a service like Firefox Relay to hide your real email address."

How do I get rid of this icon/service for Firefox Relay? It stops some people from signing up for my newsletter.

I do not display social media icons and do not offer social media sharing options except for a Pin It button for Pinterest on my website: https://www.scrapish.com/.

I have two versions of Firefox installed on my work PC, the regular one for my everyday browsing and the Developer's Edition for my work with the regular one being my default browser. For some reason, through no effort on my part, I ended up on the beta channel for the regular browser.

That was OK until the latest beta (version 90) started showing an extremely annoying bug. On a daily basis, on average, it will stop loading pages for no reason. For that reason, I'd like to get off of the beta channel and get back to using the release version. Would uninstalling the beta version and installing the release version do that for me? Or will I somehow end up back on the beta channel and get upgraded to the beta version again? (If I do have to uninstall the beta and install the release, I want to keep all of the settings, bookmarks, plugins, etc. that I have in that browser. I have the Dev Edition browser set up to never sync, so it has a different set of settings, etc., which I don't want carried over to the other browser.)
