Cannot run FF on Mac beyond v89 without freeze and unresponsive requiring force quit. I have been keeping at v89 and now upgraded to Monterey so I tried current version (93) and still crashes. I deleted every file and folder on the drive with Firefox or Mozilla in the name but still crashes. Back to v89 and works fine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Ken

Only on Firefox (not Chrome, for example) animated gifs and videos on Twitter will not display -- they instead show a black screen. When paused or not yet played, there is a visible image, but as soon as I press play, it goes to black. The audio on a video will play just fine, but the screen/image is still black.

I have checked my graphics drivers for updates and they are all up-to-date. Also the gifs/videos play just fine if I use Chrome.

Firefox is up to date. I'm on v 93.0 (64-bit).

Any ideas as to why please?

When working in Ancestry.com I am having a problem when I try to upload pictures. I get a banner across the top saying my Local Storage is disabled. I have deleted history and about everything it has said to try but to no avail. This just started about 2-3 weeks ago. Before that it has always worked correctly. Not sure it this was due to Microsoft 11 loaded, newer version of Firefox or something. It is causing me to have to go to Google Chrome which has other issues with screen prints which work much better in Firefox. How can his be fixed.

So, on Windows 10 I noticed that when I click the History tab I see Show All History and when I click that the only option I get is Today..very odd.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium when I do the same steps I have access to "Today", "Yesterday", "Last 7 days" and various recent months.

This is what I'm accustomed to and was hoping to get input on why I only get Today option on my Windows 10 computer.

Looking forward to your reply...

Hello,

I have used EVERY proposed step in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#w_the-problem-does-not-occur-in-troubleshoot-mode

Problem GOES AWAY when FF is used in Troubleshoot mode BUT, when I open FF on normal mode and make sure I UNinstall all addons, extensions, dictionaries, language packs, use default theme and DONT allow hardware acceleration, then the problem STILL persists!!!

It seems that ONLY when in Troubleshoot mode the problem is resolved: NOT by removing all obvious addons or cotrols.

The problem is : ANY download button, does not work! (it is clickable, and yes, the browser seems to respond to it -rapid flickering of browser window- but a download dialogue is never opened -nor a download file is found in any corresponding folder) -then, once in Troubleshoot mode, the same button is normally functional again!

What is a proposed solution to that?

What could control could be behind the problem, that IS NOT USER switchable, but IS INDEED controlled (disabled) when Troubleshoot mode is selected???

Could there be a .json file (corrupted, etc.), that associates with buttons/elements (like the download buttons) and prevents the download to be triggered?, SO THAT maybe if I remove the .json corrupted file the new one will work fine, (maybe such a .json file is NOT loaded during Troubleshoot mode, but IS THERE whatever settings i choose through the settings of the FF)


Thank you.

PS: I have 14 installed plugins, about all same as on my FF93.0 on Win10 laptop, that the packet works just fine!

So here's how I fucked up. I did a clean install of Windows and forgot to backup the Firefox profile folder since frankly I didn't know it existed. The next fuck up was I forgot my Firefox password before I knew about the recovery key. I reset the password and then found out resetting it deletes the bookmarks for security reasons.

Now I'm wondering, is there any way the staff could find my old bookmarks? I know I did not only one but two fuck ups in a row but I'm still holding onto hope.

Thank you for response.

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

Hey guys,

I'm running my laptop on the latest version of Fedora, and using the latest version of Firefox although this issues has been happening with previous versions of Firefox too.

I'm not sure why but I'll be working and using Google sites fine sometimes (mostly gmail, google,google slides), but other times i will put the address in and nothing will happen, no timeout or anything as if I didn't do anything. I was even working with Google slides one time and I got signed out in the middle of my work and had to use a different browser to access slides again.

Anyone have any idea what my issues is?

Thanks.
