My current PC Firefox Browser (ver 87.0 (64 bit and up to date) has the following problem.

For example when I go to Yahoo.com and pick a news story, there is always a link.

I press link and nothing happens. All the pictures don't show up in link.

However, when I open a new Firefox Browser in a new tab or even in a Chrome browser it works.

What is the solution to fix this?

Thank you.

Firefox recently started freezing up on various websites. I thought the move to Rust was supposed to make Firefox more reliable, but in fact if one tab has problems with JavaScript, then the ENTIRE Firefox app freezes up.

Firefox 87, Windows 10.

Hi, For a couple weeks now, whenever Firefox is open, I can't control other software with the keyboard media keys. I had fixed the problem before by setting the flag media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false, which worked for a while. But now it doesn't. I also tried setting dom.media.mediasession.enabled to false, and all 4 combinatios of the 2 flags. Firefox keeps capturing media keys. Tried disabling every addon shortcut too, as some other webpage recommended.

Note that it happens even if there's nothing in firefox, ie 1 tab on the "home" screen. Close Firefox and Spotify starts responding. Open Firefox and it stops working.

I never used to have problems, but about a month or so ago my tabs kept crashing on different sites. I usually sent the report. Recently I did an HP suggested Optimize - which was a BIG mistake, but I say that because I had to have my whole OS reinstalled and added an antivirus program Webroot so I was astonished that the crashing is starting to happen again. Can you please tell me why or fix this problem or I may have to switch to another browser this is annoying! Thanks.

Long story short... this is my first Mac (MacBook Pro 13-inch, M1, 2020). I noticed that there is a mini Firefox icon at the end of my dock before the "stack" downloads folder and trash icon. I was wondering if anyone else has the same issue. Restarting seems to help but comes back, removing Firefox from the dock also seems to help but once it's back in there it comes back after a while.

Dear Volunteer. Not "yelling" at you personally, but...

PLEASE discontinue “A web page is slowing down your browser.” It’s useless, and EVERYBODY hates it.

Since this "improvement" was force-fed to us, the opening of almost every site gets hijacked and frozen by a redundant alert.

Please at least give us the option to disable it. Seriously, I see (Not Responding) in the activity windows more than anything else since the idiotic yellow bar made it's unwelcome appearance.

PLEASE kill it. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Thanks.

Another problem that's started with Firefox for Windows this wee.

Firefox takes a long time to load pages, up to a minute. In the bottom right of the page it says "waiting of fonts.googleapis.com" or something like that.

The other problem of it not displaying graphs still hasn't been resolved.

Neither of these problems exist on Chrome.

I truly hope somebody can give me some help. I am struggling to understand why my website page containers go nuts on Firefox. I tried so much, I payed a good developer who told me the issue was over, but it is still there. I'm trying everything but my project is being a failure due to very nasty WP Theme issues, like this one. I had to spend my time fixing the Theme and my project completely past its deadline. Maybe I'm going to be fired, without fox.

I clearly cannot add site credentials for anybody, but maybe some developer knows what could be of help.

It seems that the issue has something to do with page Container and Flex attribute. The website is a Wordpress site and the page is built with WPBakery Visual Editor. All updated, no customizations, pages should work easy... As you can see the page title is ok, but then inside the main page container, the Visual Editor rows (which have display = flex) behave as if they had no width. Despite that, changing the flex attribute to display = block targeting FF specifically through Css, it doesn't seem to work either. It's not something simple just as a Row option inside the Visual Editor.

Please see attachments. Many pages behave like that. My questions: - is there a possibility to speak with Firefox assistance and get a clue? - did any developer from community, experience something similar before? How did you manage to solve it? - Firefox, why are you behaving like that with an old supporter?

Thank you to anybody spending his time to help.

I am no longer able to access any Google sites through Firefox.

I get this message:

The connection has timed out

The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond.

I can access all other sites through Firefox (including other search engines). I have cleared all of the History, caches, cookies etc and that sometimes allows me to access to Google once, but then the problem returns. I have to accept cookies from Google when I do that but sometimes the cookie verification with Google times out. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode and refreshing Firefox but that has not helped.

I can access Google sites through Chrome.

A virus scan (with Norton and Hitman Pro) reveal no viruses or other malware

All other computers I have can access Google.

I updated to the latest Windows build yesterday, after which the problems started.

How do I restore access?

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am getting the message "Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www4.citizensbankonline.com/efs/servlet/efs/loginnew-wait.jsp" on this server. Reference #18.ad674d68.1618522318.738da43 " when I try to log on to my bank. I'm running Windows 8.1 with Windows Defender and have accessed this site for years. When I called the bank's tech support their response was "Why are you still using Firefox? Everybody uses Chrome now." I do not use Chrome, but Edge will access the web page with no problem. This has been occurring on and off for several weeks and I have tried all suggested solutions I've found here so far (clear cache, history, DNS prefetch.... ). I've also noticed numerous other posts with the same error message. Any ideas??
