Two days ago Frirefox crashes and won't start again. First I delete the Firefox.app and reinstall, same Problem. Then I uninstall Firefox.app (plus ~Library/Application Support/Firefox and ~/Library/Preferences/org.mozilla.firefox.plist), restart the MacBook Pro and install Firefox again. And Firefox chrashes during every start. Has anybody an idea? Thanks Haio

Firefox shows a PDF invoice provided by my internet bank. The PDF is readable on screen but when I print it out, all the text is scrambled (see enclosed scan). What happens? I have to go the long way and download the document and read it with Adobe Acrobat Reader and print from there to get it right. Or I can use Chrome, from there it will print OK.

Hi, I have some troubles with loading of particular websites. When the page is almost loaded I've got a report about tab crash. Here is an example of such crash https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/34a97675-d26f-4110-bdbd-a50400180916#tab-details It occurs on the loading of the following page https://plusminus-electronics-lab.timepad.ru/event/787948/ while the main page of the same website loads without the issue.

I've installed the latest version of Firefox. Firefox Quantum 63 x64 and ReCaptchas don't work properly. It has been installed on a fresh Windows 10 Pro and Firefox it's at the same time a fresh install like I'm showing on the video at the end of this post. No firewall, no antivirus, no addons, nothing that should stop Firefox from automatically do the ReCaptcha. But every time you click on I'm not a Robot it always prompts you to do a puzzle.

Please Firefox, fix this issue. It is pretty frustrating to have to answer every time a puzzle that are ridiculously annoying or having to switch to Google Chrome to use those kind of pages that ask you to answer a ReCaptcha.

However, if there is anyone that has a solution, please share it with me or all of us. Because I've been trying to find an answer and haven't find one that works. So I will appreciate a good fix for it.

Thanks in advance to the community and hopefully Firefox finds a fix because for what I've read it's a persistent issue with other older versions too.

I'm running Firefox 62.0 on Linux. I'm using the Light theme, but the menu bar and drop down menus have suddenly changed to dark. How do I get them back to a light background with black text? btw - when it changed, I couldn't read the menus because they were black text on black background. After trying a variety of themes, which didn't affect the menus, somehow they changed to black background with white text, so I can at least read them.

Every now and then, I get the 'Firefox Red Screen of Caution' about the site I'm attempting to visit. It's shown as a Deceptive Site, and I'm urged to NOT visit it. One option open to me is to 'Ignore Warning' and proceed. This works most of the time, but occasionally even clicking that option does not allow me to bypass Firefox's well-intentioned blockade and have to use an alternative browser. How do I deal with this otherwise?

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

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

I cannot open ff at all to restore defaults or run in safe mode to fix.
