Hi,

I'm experiencing a problem on Firefox 125 and 126 on Red Hat Linux 8 & 9 and also on Ubuntu 20 and 22 systems.

We have a proxy pac which we have tried loading from an http url, or a local file and both produce the same result.

  • Launch Firefox, no access to Internet sites (i.e. no proxy)
  • Enter settings and Reload proxy pac
  • Proxy works perfectly

Is there any way to force the proxy pac to load on Launch? Why isn't this the default behaviour? or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Firefox keeps locking up

For a couple of months now, my favorite browser, Firefox, has been locking up on me. It started this year right after an update. It suddenly locks up! Completely! Sometimes I cannot get it to close. I have had to shut down my pc to get rid of a locked up Firefox browser. These days I only need to right click the Firefox tab on the task bar and click "Close Window". That has been a big help.

So, I give up on Firefox and made Chrome the default browser. Then behind the scenes, someone installs a patch to the main server and fixes the problem.

I check it often and when I see that you fixed it, I set it back to default browser for about 2 or 3 weeks and then Firefox locks up again. I shut it down and switch to the Chrome browser again.

Back and forth I go. It locks up. I switch to Chrome. You finally fix it yet again. I try it after a few days and discover that you fixed it and make it default browser again.

And here I am again! I cleared the lock up by right clicking on the taskbar Firefox tab. Now I get a dialog box that has an option to shut down Firefox. Then I see a time bar move across the dialog box and close. Nice touch!

Now I switched to the Chrome Browser again and I am waiting for you to fix your Firefox browser for the 5th or 6th time this year.

Let me give you some advice. Burn it to the ground and start over. What you are doing does not help!

It takes a lot longer than it should to load my home page, MSN. This problem is more pronounced with Firefox than other browsers. What can be done to load the home page faster? And, in general to load websites? Can someone help? Thank you.

Today my PC has launched Firefox 3 times on 3 occasions before I could tell my PC to launch McAfee. I shut off Firefox as soon as it would let me and proceeded to McAfee alright. I never use my computer without the antivirus/firewall etc. running even if I am not on the web.

I checked Firefox settings but could find nothing specific to my issue. I have not made any changes to Firefox or any other software since the last Firefox upgrade. My PC runs Windows 10.

Is there a switch or toggle I can use to ensure my PC waits before loading Firefox? This phenomenon is new today. Thanks!
