When I open Reddit in regular browsing mode the page loads but I cannot interact with anything at all. I cannot scroll, click buttons, or even go to other tabs or close the tab. Firefox (from what I can tell) freezes completely, the buttons to close the window and minimize it do not work either and I can only close it with task manager. I went into troubleshooting mode to try and fix it myself and it works perfectly there. I went back into regular browsing mode and disabled all my addons, but the problem happened again. After this I tried clearing my startup cache and the browser still froze. Other websites like Youtube and Twitter function normally.

RE: Firefox extremely slow to load pages or connect to Web sites after startup

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1. My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easies… (read more)

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

I have Firefox set to ask me whether to open or save a file, and then when saving to ask me where to save every time. I have noticed that Firefox tends to remember what folder I last saved something in from a specific site (aka, when I download something from dafont.com, it remembers that I saved previous downloads in the "Free fonts" folder and automatically loads that folder). That's convenient and I like this feature.

However, sometimes I need to save to lots of different folders from a site. (For example, if I download images from a stock image site, I want to save the image in the project folder of whichever project I'm working on.) The problem is that Firefox spits out a random folder I may have saved to before, with no rhyme or reason, even if I have just recently saved a bunch of files to one specific folder. For example, I am downloading ten images to save to Project Folder A. Downloading the first image brings up Project Folder B. I navigate to Project Folder A and save. I download the second image and it brings up Project Folder C. I navigate to Project Folder A and save. I download the second image and it brings up Project Folder D. Etc. etc.

Sometimes it does remember the current folder I'm using, but then it will randomly switch in the middle, which is incredibly annoying because I might not notice the switch and then later I can't find what I downloaded, only to eventually find it in a completely unrelated folder. (So for example, I download the first image to Project Folder A. I download the second image, and it brings up Project Folder A. I download the third and fourth images and it brings up Project Folder A. I download the fifth image and it brings up Project Folder E. I save without noticing, or I navigate back to Project Folder A.)

Is there a way to set Firefox to remember download locations for some sites, but to default to the last used for others? Or do I need to just turn the feature off entirely? And if so, how do I do that? (From googling, it does seem other people have had this problem, in 2012 and in 2017. Both were told to update to the latest version of Firefox, which is not helpful for me in 2022, or to modify the Boolean rules for the config setting browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite. I have no idea how to modify a Boolean rule.)

Here's the problem: over the past few days, every time I try to play a Youtube Short, it plays the wrong video, if it plays at all. As best I can tell, what's happening is that it's skipping to the end of the video I'm trying to play and cycling on to the next one.

Frankly, I dislike YT's Shorts format anyway, but some of my favorite content creators use them, so what you gonna do?

I tested it out on Edge, and there doesn't seem to be a problem there.

It doesn't seem to matter whether I try to play the video on YT itself or click an external link. The same results: I can't actually play the video I'm trying to see.

It's only been happening for a couple of days.

Hello, I manage a High school and after recently reimaging my Machines during the School holiday, I got users complaining that Firefox was extremely slow. I verified this and did a couple of tests. in fact If I log in as an Admin that has no GPOs applied and also uses a local windows profile I have no issues. but as soon as I log in with a user, who gets GPOs and has a roaming windows profile, Firefox is extremely slow and takes about 30 seconds to load a tab.

I'm running the latest update, and also created a new firefox profile on the server, to no avail. I also disabled ESET Anti Virus which did not make any difference. Ressources look good, no Spikes in used ressources and also the Event Viewer does not log anything firefox related.

What could be the culprit here?

Hi, I'm trying to setup Firefox Sync for the first time. I successfully created my account, but when I log in on another device and run the synchronization, nothing happens.

I think I found the root of the problem in the Firefox settings :

  • When I open the "Sync" tab, it displays : "Syncing: ON" (good)
  • But : "You are currently synchronising these items: " (empty - not good)
  • I click on the "Change" button, the "Choose what to synchronize" pop-up appears
  • And here's the thing : almost all the checkboxes are disabled, I'm unable to select any of them (apart from "Credit cards", which I don't want to use). See my uploaded images.

I'd like to sync my Bookmarks and Passwords but I can't, because the checkboxes are disabled in the Settings. I tried to update other Settings, disconnect/reconnect my Firefox account, tried again on another device... I always find an empty "You are currently synchronising these items: " and disabled checkboxes.

Did anyone have the same issue, or maybe am I doing something wrong? Best regards

When I try to access my Telstra account using Firefox, either at telstra.com/myaccount or at telstra.com/paybill it brings me to the Register page where I enter my telstra user name. I click Continue and land on a blank white page and that is the end of it, can't go any further.

I talked to Telstra, they told me to clean all cookies for those two sites. It didn't change anything, still get a blank page.

Then tried with Chrome, it works perfectly, I can access my account on both websites.

Telstra tells me it is a Firefox issue. It does not make any sense to me because I have used Firefox for many years, since I had Windows 98, and never had a problem.

I am using Win 10 and the latest Firefox version. This problem started 3 months ago. Before then I had no issues. I accessed my telstra account once a month to pay it. Hope you can help. Thank you, Carmen
