So I've been using firefox for a while now, and I really like it, but in the past few months it has suddenly decided that my browser is out of date (not the case, I'm running the latest update) and unsupported, even though it says firefox is supported. This happens on a lot of different sites. I tried resetting my useragent and clearing my cache and cookies, but nothing seems to have happened. I still get the bug. I submitted to webcompat too.

https://github.com/webcompat/web-bugs/issues/55085

Please help, its super irritating to deal with, and I don't want to have to switch browser.

I have the latest FF on my Windows desktop with no new add-ons. The past month or so when I load pages, usually ones that have a lot of ads, all the ads or other extras on the page start flickering - the icons for stop loading and reload alternate back and forth fast. I can stop the flickering by clicking on one of those icons but why does it do that? It makes the whole page distracting to read. I sometimes have to do that for page after page.

I've checked and disabled add-ons to see if these were blocking somehow, but no result. It worked fine before, so my suspicion is something changed in FF78? Thanks!

I am having trouble with the amazon website. I recently installed firefox and for some reason I cant' look for any kind of product in amazon.com . I tried to see if it would work without any extensions or in safe mode, but no luck. If I click on a product from a link it will work, but for reason it wont work in any other way.

Hi all,

Recently GMail has stopped working properly. When entering a search query + hitting enter, nothing happens. Even the autocomplete does not kick in. The Online Contacts (lower left) is also showing jumbled text, and the far right hand Side Panel is also not showing properly (although the buttons are there when I mouse hover over them). Firefox is completely up-to-date, Win 10 setup.

I haven't had a firefox crash in a long time, and this one seemed particularly odd because it started out with individual tabs crashing, then the browser, then the same happening again as the browser restored itself. I had since updated Firefox to the version that came out the same day and rebooted and it hasn't yet happened again, but I would like some help diagnosing if this is a deeper issue or just a fluke, as another application (the OSRS game client) seemed to close itself, albeit with no message, alongside Firefox while everything else was stable.

Event viewer showed four application errors listing:

ntdll.exe
nvapi.dll
nvtmmon.exe

As well as ntdll.exe alongside firefox.exe

I am not sure what this means, if those came from outside or inside firefox's operation.

Here are my crash reports related to the incident:

bp-f214e660-8d5d-4d28-9d65-bc4b30180906
bp-89089d16-b8af-4394-9ad3-58aca0180906
bp-9a0cca78-56a0-4173-b7bd-7734a0180906

Thank you for any help.

I have one bookmark that will not work. If I click the bookmark nothing happens. no searching back and forth dots.The current pages stay open and active.

http://www.canadiantire.ca/

It works fine in chrome, opera, IE. If I google search and then click the google link it works.

It does work if I click the link in this question.

It does not work if I cut and paste or type it into the address bar.

It does not work if I make a new bookmark while on the page and then try using the new bookmark.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

hello, just updated to version 62 (x64) and everything become very very slow. It needs at least 18 seconds to open and the same time to open just a new tab

before the update everything was good enough, now I uninstalled it completely with Revo, cleaned the registry with Wise, cleaned the PC with CCleaner, optimize the SSD and installed the previous (working) version (61): SAME SITUATION, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE SLOW.

After the new installation, without any plugin installed: very slow. With the plugins installed: the same

What is FUNNY is that's not happening on a cheaper system! What is FUNNY is that it's not happenyng on just ONE system!

Sys 1: Laptop with Intel i5, 8Gb RAM and SSD Samsung Sys 2: Desktop with Intel i5, 16Gb RAM DDR4 3600MHz, 256Gb SSD Samsung NVMe and Geforge 1080 8Gb

You'll understand that with any of those system in your hands, waiting more than 2 seconds to see the browser open IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

The last update corrupt something, otherwise the previous working version didn't works so badly

Now I'll restore a ghost image, fortunately I have it at least two for each month, in the while I'll test other faster browsers

A site of mine has been blocked "because it may trick you into doing something dangerous" etc. The phrasing suggests that you aren't even sure if there is a real problem, but you're blocking it just in case. Nowhere is the cause specified. There are no details of what behaviour or code on the site caused it to be listed, or who listed it, or why. Just a big message saying that this is a Deceptive Site. There's no one I can talk to about this, no way to find out any information whatsoever - there's not even any notification that the site has been blocked. All of which makes it just about impossible to actually FIX whatever is causing this issue (assuming that there is one, and I haven't just been reported randomly by some troll).

So, to sum up: there's no useful information, no transparency and no accountability anywhere in this process. Just Google throwing their weight around and you letting them.

I'm not saying that there is no problem - there may be a legitimate issue that needs addressing. What I'm saying is that the way the Mozilla Foundation has dealt with the problem makes it more or less impossible to actually do that addressing. Who exactly does that help? How does this make anyone's internet experience better?

After a last update of Firefox, Kasperksy told me, that firefox websites are not protected by this security software and they force me to use google chrome for to be protected. But I want to use firefox because of its tracking protection and privacy sites. Is there any reason to bar Mozilla from protecting. In former times there was an add-on, which doesn't exist any longer.
