While using Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS and FF 71 When I go to www.Pluto.tv a free TV site and leave it running for about 40 minutes or more the message " a script on this page may be busy" this always happens both on Ubuntu and another Linux system. this problem does not occur on my Mac OS. the problem when left alone the CPU goes very high on the Linux system preventing any usefull usage of FF until it is closed and reopened.

The message that pops up suggests FF is interuppting something incorrectly. Anyone with a suggestion to stop this problem? Keeping in mind FF plays with no flawas for more than 40 minutes

Random today, firefox 69.0 (standard firefox from the Ubuntu repo) on Pop!_OS 19.04 (running KDE plasma) started randomly becoming super unresponsive. I would type and it would then proceed to freeze for a second, then choppily spit out my characters one by one. This happened even after wiping the .mozilla folder, after purging configurations, after refreshing firefox and after launching it in safe mode. Any idea as to why this is happening and how to fix it?

Now every time I type i.e. "r" the page reloads! There are other keyboard shortcuts too - every key that isn't bound by a shortcut types normal.

This means that whatever I type wherever when using Firefox I can't type the letters that are bound by a shortcut (which is executed without holding down a modifier key!).

This does not happen in any other application I use, including the Google Chrome browser.

Hello. I had naively let my computer do an upgrade of Mozilla. Guess what. All data gone. History, bookmarks, add-ons. I didn't have a back-up of bookmarks, well, at least not recent.

How can I get them back? I've spent a lot of time with setting up Firefox so it would be comfortable to me, I've spent my time in it, and now it's all gone and I don't even remember the name of some add-ons I used to use.

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!

Ubuntu 18.04 There is a proxy. No any antivirus software installed.

On some sites there is warning: Your connection is not secure. If i pressed "Advanced". The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. After that, i choose "Add Exception" and "Get certificate". After receiving certificate, i get

the site provides valid, verified identification".

So I can close "Add Exception" window and refresh the page. All works fine.

Another way if HSTS used. There is not chance to "Add Exception". But sometimes i just need to reload page. Or another page with the same domen load successfully.

What i tried todo:

updates certificates: sudo dpkg-reconfigure ca-certificates

remove cert file of firefox: ~/.mozilla/firefox/qrpsqrx2.default/cert9.db.

It seems to be usefull, but not a long time. So: problem still exist.

Ubuntu 16.04, Firefox 59.01, fresh install. No bookmarks toolbar available. When going under customize, click the toolbar bitton, nothing shows up. This is consistent with three fresh installs. I prefer having the tool bar readily available, preferably under the "view" "toolbars" menu. Need the bookmarks toolbar. I can't figure out why that was changed!

This sounds more like an issue with Microsoft but it probably isn't because other browsers like Google Chrome doesn't have this issue. The domain "attachment.outlook.office.net" is unreachable/unresolvable in Firefox (58 and earlier versions) in Ubuntu 17.10 64-bit. All the attachments that are delivered with Outlook are hosted in this domain and whenever I check Outlook e-mails using Firefox in Ubuntu the attachments are unavailable. They are there in the e-mails, sort of, but they are shown like shortcuts that don't lead to anything.

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

I have not used my PC for three weeks and today I tried to log in to my Amazon account, but every time I tried to do the login it crashes, I also found it to crash in other websites like Reddit and the AMD Support Site. It is Firefox 58.0.1 64-bit in Ubuntu 16.04. I tried refreshing firefox and nothing, it also removed all extensions leaving only the default plug-ins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash. If I disable them manually the websites will still crash. The only way Firefox will work normally is if I restart it in Safe Mode. I also tried installed the new 59 64-bit Beta version, but is causing the same problems.

The latest submitted crash reports are:

bp-5f7cae12-c429-4dd7-b794-8e4cf0180210 bp-8b31fc05-ede6-4d6c-8cd9-10efc0180210 bp-dd409298-45fb-43bb-8fa5-a02d00180210

Whenever I end up browsing online with Firefox, from time to time, Yahoo Answer crops up with no warning and is not even installed on my system nor is it an add-on, I am wondering if Yahoo Answer Browser is actually a virus interfering with peoples experience online and if it is being deliberately done by those who run Yahoo. As it has hampered me on many occasions with the research I am doing. Asking me to sign up for a network I quit over 10 Years ago of the problems it caused back then, its also why I switched to Mozilla Firefox, which is much more stable.

This is why I feel Yahoo Answer has become an internet virus, it is everywhere where you do not need it.
