Recent versions of Firefox have started crashing more and more often for me. As of version 80.0, it happens around 1–2 times a day on average, usually when the session has been running for a while. In the middle of work, Firefox window(s) will just disappear and the process is no longer running. This will happen both on my Windows 10 and my Windows 7 system.

I recently realised that I hadn't been seeing the Mozilla Crash Reporter window in a long time, on either system. I just assumed my crash reports were being sent in order to help fix these bugs, but today I decided to check, and saw that crash reports are not even generated anymore. When I oben about:crashes, I see that the last crash report is from May. I'm sure I've had Firefox crash many dozens of times since then, but the crash reporting facility seems to no longer work.

I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode as well. The result is the same: it will crash usually after a few hours of work, without any error, no crash reporter window, and no crash report showing up in about:crashes afterwards.

What could have broken my Crash Reporter functionality (and on both of my systems, too)? And how can I get it back to generating and submitting these reports?

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

I am having issues with Firefox browser on my university website. When I do a search in the ebsco library and I try to advance to the second page of the results nothing happens. When I try to modify the search terms it returns me to the original search terms. Also, in the classroom portal called Brightspace I am unable to see embedded video clips.

These issues never occurred in the past versions. These issues do not occur when I use Chrome.

1. I'm using containers and they are not allowing me to sign into theregister.co.uk site or any bbc.com or bbc.co.uk site if I open the site within a container.

On theregister.co.uk, clicking on log in refreshes the page but nothing else.

On the BBC sites, clicking on log in opens the same page in one or two new tabs. Oddly, if I've logged in outside of container, the Log In button flashes momentarily as Account which is what would be in the place if I were logged in.

I've tried clearing the cookies for both sites but it doesn't help. I can log into either without a problem if it's not in a container.

2. If I remove a site from a container's site list, I cannot open it in that container.

Any ideas?

I use 85.0.2-64 bit on a PC.

For the last month or so. Perhaps since the last update or two. I can't login to my bank.

Details:

-I try it on Edge, and it works.

-When it fails, I get the bank website's standard failure error message: "Your username and/or password are incorrect. Please try again";

-I've repeatedly checked on the correctness of my ID & PW repeatedly over the last month;

-I use Norton PW manager, but I have back-up on a secure thumb drive. I try the PW using my backup, and it still fails;

-I try typing my ID & PW in manually, and it still fails;

-The only successful workaround on Firefox is to change my PW. Then I can login: once;

-I do have add-ons, but I deactivated all of them, restarted Firefox, and it still fails.

I've used Firefox for decades, but not being able to do simple banking is a strong argument for using Edge. Do you have a remedy or a suggestion for this?

Hi there. I have a feature that I would like to see on Firefox (Pinch zoom on touch displays in the Firefox PDF reader).

So what I did I searched for the best possible way to submit my feedback. I belive to have found it under Help -> Submit feedback. But upon clicking this button, I get immediately redirected to this page:

https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

which undoubtly seems like a redirect error.

Tried this Link on my Firefox (with addons), Firefox private and Edge, always the same result.

Happy to hear some suggestions!

This started when I got a dll error earlier when I tried to restart Firefox, and it recommended reinstalling the browser. I did that. Now the error was gone but... nothing loaded. I tried to refresh and to boot it in safe mode. Nothing. I tried uninstalling the browser entirely by deleting it and all files associated with it and reinstalling. Didn't fix things. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Visual C++. Still, not a single thing loads.

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread

When attempting to use websites like Battlefield 3's "Battlelog" and Netflix's "Watch Instantly", which require Windows Vista or Windows 7, these websites fail to recognize my OS, which is Windows 7 64-bit.

I recently uninstalled an addon called Masking Agent, which purported to hide a computer's specifications from websites. How this addon got onto my computer I am unsure.
