I noticed a few months back that Firefox quantum 65.0.2 (64 bit) uploads are extremely slow. A 186kb image that is uploaded instantly in Chrome or Firefox developer edition (65.0b11 64 bit) takes about 30-45 seconds in quantum, a 900kb image jumps to 14% when I hit upload, then super slowly climbs up by 2%-4% at a time, finally finishing the upload 3 minutes later, and by the time the upload finishes the google captcha I entered has expired and it tells me to retry the upload. The same 900kb image uploads in 2 seconds on chrome and firefox dev. Also some websites like twitch.tv are super slow to load, not even a video stream, the homepage takes about 20 seconds to load, then another 30 seconds for the video to start playing, while the site loads and starts playing the homepage video within a few seconds on chrome and firefox dev. I've tried everything, launching firefox in safe mode, reinstalling firefox and trying with no plugins, switching between system proxy settings and no proxy. Is there anything else I can try? Super annoying having to launch chrome every time I need to upload something.

Thanks

I was forced into updating FF over the weekend of 5-5-19. I lost all of my addons and settings. Then to add to the agony the updated version started to slow to a crawl. Then on Monday ver 66 was installed. Now the browser is so slow that I can't use it. Typing letters takes up to 30sec to display the letter I am typing. It's insane that Mozilla can reduce a perfectly good browser into a non-functioning browser. Does anyone know if there is going to be a fix for this or do I have to suffer with Chrome from now on? I need to actually do work on the computer not play with settings and fiddle with different suggestions to make it work. A browser should just -work-. I should have stuck with ver 28 which did work well.

I am using an HP laptop and running the latest version of Windows. Firefox worked just fine about a week ago. However, after rebooting my computer the browser will not open at all anymore and nothing is working. I click the app and nothing happens. I've tried running it as an administrator. I've tried using the RUN commands, nothing. I've tried uninstalling and each time it tells me that Firefox must first be closed before I can uninstall, but it never opens anything in the first place for me to be able to close it and so I have to reboot my computer all over again to even uninstall the app. This is extremely frustrating because certain online applications I use for work are only compatible with Firefox. I've tried deleting temp folders in the program data, nothing. Please help! You have no phone support and this is a very pressing issue!

If I hit a link in Facebook and it is a YouTube video, Firefox goes unresponsive and I have to open the task manager and close Firefox. This happens even if it opens in a new window. I can't even open YouTube on its own without having this happen, can you tell me why? I do have three links that I have bookmarked that are YouTube videos and they play fine, but nothing else.

For the last week Task Manager is showing Firefox using lots of CPU, causing fans to come on in laptop, at the same time 'FLOW' is showing about the same high usage. I never installed Flow. When I 'end task' on Flow Firefox reverts to normal. But Flow reappears on it's own. If I remove Conexant Flow, it comes back again. Can anyone help? It also worries me why Flow should be using so much CPU, when (apparently) it is only a driver?

I've had problems with Firefox not responding and having to be closed via task manager for some time, some days happening several times, and some days not at all. I originally thought it was to do with Facebook, as I tend to have that open most of the time, but it seems to be happening with whatever I have open. Today it has got to the point where it is becoming unresponsive as soon as I open it. I've tried opening in safe mode, refreshing and have now downloaded the latest version. Don't know what's causing it, or what to try next. Help please!

YouTube plays the first video fine, but when I select any other video from the browser window I get multiple Firefox crash alert windows. Nothing happens when I click the "Close the Program" option in the Crash Alert. Firefox remains open and eventually after a slight delay, the video selected will play, but the crash alert keeps popping up. -Began yesterday (3/11/19), no known changes to browser or system -Refreshed Firefox (did not help) -Attempted in Safe Mode (did not help) Thanks for any recommendations.

I use Network Monitor to see the URL's that websites are using internally. There's a site which seems to have been written to circumvent this functionality. If I access the site while the Network Monitor is up, the Network Monitor automatically switches to the Debugger. When I switch back to the Network Monitor, the site hangs until I close the Network Monitor and then the site proceeds. It appears that the site has a way of detecting that the Network Monitor is up. Is there a way to make it so the web page cannot detect that the Network Monitor is up and cannot take control of it?

Firefox 65.02 64bit on Win10 freezes on youtube video playing (tested with three different videos). Furthermore I cannot restart Firefox, because one process remains in task manager and I cannot terminate/kill it. I can start Firefox again only after restart.

I removed profile, all add-ons and downgraded to Firefox 64.02 64 bit and it works as expected. After upgrade same error occurs.

Getting frequent "Firefox has stopped working" in version 65.0.1 using Win7 64 bit version. This problem began after the latest update and the only option is to close the program and restart. None of the websites that it has failed on so far have been unusual as I use them daily and have for years. All of my addons are standard that I have also used for ten versions back and all are up to date.

Hello! (FF 65.0.1) I recently tried to access the preferences page but I get an error of "Unresponsive Script" on "resource://gre/modules/Localization.jsm:444"

Starting in Safe Mode solved the issue so I opened FF again and disabled all extensions but not luck. So I tried disabling Hebrew (using Hebrew on my FF) on the languages tab and it solved the issue.

What can I do to keep using Hebrew and to be able to access the preferences?

Thanks!

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

Just recently since the last few updates Firefox freezes quite often. In the past it might freeze once in awhile but now it freezes much more often. I read someone's response for another question which gave direction on copying and pasting the crash reports that I had submitted but I did not understand what to do with the most recent 5 after I copied them. The direction said something about pasting them in the forum???

FF has been freezing EVERY single time I attempt to use it, even since I started using it in safe mode, and after I cleared the cache.

It freezes a few minutes after opening, and freezes my Mac as well. Takes at least 5 minutes before it unfreezes. I am not getting crash reports. I think this started right after the latest update.

When I try to watch a You Tube video Firefox locks up or freezes. Then I have to open up Task Manager to get it to shut down. Very annoying. It doesn't matter whether I click from a link to go to You Tube or go there directly and try to find a video. Firefox locks up either way. I can use other browsers but Firefox is my browser of choice and I always forget to use another browser until it's too late. How can I fix this?
