Hello everyone!!

I've been experiencing a rather "unusual" issue: My Firefox up until version 116.0b8 worked perfectly fine; however, after any updates to versions beyond that, it stopped working.

I've tried the final versions and the betas, but nothing works. I attempted reinstallation and everything else, but I couldn't solve the mystery and remain stuck on version 116.0 beta 8.

What's happening? Every time I try to load a page on any version above 116.0, it either doesn't open or keeps loading in a loop. Yet, if I use another browser or revert to version 116, everything works correctly. This issue does not occurs in others machines.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

This isn't strictly related to Hulu but using it as an example: Hulu has some bug right now where it will occasionally suddenly use a lot of CPU power and completely lock up Firefox, and to some degree my whole system. If I manage to "close" the tab, it *appears* to close, but it's very clear that whatever Hulu is doing is still going on in the background. This time I was at least able to open the task manager and kill Firefox – which immediately alleviated the problem, and upon reopening Firefox, the Hulu tab was still there (indicating it never closed).

I don't know if this is possible, especially given I don't know what's causing the bug with Hulu, but it would be nice if Firefox was better able to handle a tab getting out of control like that.

Edge and Chrome directly open embedded government pages, such as https://www.nifc.gov and https://hazards.fema.gov/nri/map, that "Firefox Can't Open." "To protect your security," Firefox requires each to be opened in a new window. This is an incentive for users to switch to Edge or Chrome and stop using Firefox. All .gov pages should be safe to open even if they do not "utilize x-frame options or a content security policy to control whether other websites can embed them."

Strange Text Formatting on Next Level Gaming Store (Firefox) - Help!

Hi everyone,

I recently noticed some strange text formatting issues on [[Next Level Gaming Store|https://nextlevelgamingstore.net/]] while browsing with Firefox. Specifically, the descriptions for some of the game assets seem to be jumbled or overlapping in weird ways. It makes it hard to read what each asset actually offers.

I've cleared my cache and tried a different browser (Chrome), and everything looks fine there. So, it seems to be a Firefox-specific issue.

Anyone else encountered this on Next Level Gaming Store with Firefox? Maybe there's a setting I can tweak to fix the formatting?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have had issues where I am trying to open a new page or refresh a page and it stays at the bottom of the page. Example the Firefox help pages where I scroll to bottom click on the next page number, and it goes to that page but stays at bottom. Or if on Hibid and want to look at a listing, look at the listing and then want to go back to the previous page, it opens the listing at the bottom of the page, not the top. Sometimes it will open the new page where ever it wants

I posted the other day under "Firefox NO LONGER adheres to "Ask if you want to Save" option.." - HOWEVER - I NOW see what the problem is - BUT I STILL can't fix it:

I have New Lenovo laptop - Windows 11 – AND - Firefox version 128.0 - and EVEN THOUGH I have ALL the items necessary checked under SETTINGS - APPLICATIONS to ALWAYS ASK - NOWHERE in this version of Firefox on my Win 11 laptop does it show ANY of the Microsoft products in the APPLICATIONS field - so I can't change how I want Firefox to respond when accessing Microsoft applications - AT ALL!

SO THAT means - EVERY TIME I click on a .doc or any Microsoft Office program - it automatically opens - and it is saved in a download folder.

You must understand – with what I do - I open AT LEAST 20- 30 docx a day - I DO NOT want to SAVE them - but I have no recourse - AND there is NO WAY to add – (that I know of) - the Microsoft applications to the FIREFOX Applications section under Settings.

AND if you send me to the Help section – to look at: Always Open Similar Files" option – AS YOU CAN SEE by the screengrab – There ARE no similar files for me to do that with - SO I can’t fix it that way either.

ALSO – I have another Laptop – Windows 10 – and of course Firefox latest version – 128.0 - and as you can see with the screengrab – It has options for AT LEAST TWO of the Microsoft Applications – so I don’t have that problem – BUT – to attach a screengrab from my Win 10 laptop application settings in Firefox to this msg – I went to my Win 10 laptop – made a grab – and sent it to myself to open on my Win 11 laptop – which is where I am composing this message and which has the problem – BUT BECAUSE there is ALSO no setting to ASK what to do when you open Picture files – It SAVED to downloads as well – NO OPTION to say that you JUST wanted to open it!

This is maddening and it really doesn’t work for me – and I assume others who may have this problem. Please PLEASE advise what I should do – Is there another build I can download or...?

I have done the usual running in troubleshooting mode etc, but it makes no difference.

I use Firefox beta and the issue does not happen on other browsers such as edge.
