I upgraded to 108.01 three days ago. It crashed 3 times in the next two days, accompanied by that popup you get informing you of the crash.

For years I've been using the extraction method of the executable to create a Firefox portable application. Upgrading only involves the install folder. The profile remains untouched, unaltered.

I had an incident of profile corruption a couple months ago, with basically Firefox launching with most features not working, i.e. toolbar buttons, toolbar menus, etc. Yesterday, for a short time, aside from two crashes, I had a similar experience with the buttons, but not quite the same. My default built in Firefox buttons worked, but my extension buttons didn't. I also noticed on a page that I regularly visit, Ublock origin wasn't doing it's regular job of blocking, and the Ublock button was non-responsive.

I'm also in the process of using the Brave Browser for the first time. The reason I'm posting this here about this subject, including a Brave experience, is that at the same time I was experiencing the Firefox erratic behavior, Brave was crashing as well; freezing; tabs not loading.

Considering the Brave tabs not loading, and the temporary Firefox Ublock origin failure, etc., I'm wondering if there might be something in common here? Maybe an internet connectivity issue at the time?

Lately Firefox has become unbearably slow. I checked my Verizon connection. Their test showed I have good network response. I get these long TLS handshake messages. I tried refreshing Firefox. I lost my adblock then reinstalled it. It seems to be working but I no longer see the icon showing how many ads are blocked. I thought I might try customizing it but when I go into Settings-Add-ons I can't even find it. By the way I can't find what release I'm on either but it should be the latest.

Basically.

I see a lot of options on how to disable Javascript context menus on sites, for purpose.

I want the opposite - certain sites, most notably Google Workspace and Nextcloud, have a very useful Javascript context menu for things like tweaking format or renaming files.

But when I right-click in Firefox, the browser's own context menu pops up and overlaps with the site's, making it nearly unusable. (Pressing escape to dismiss the menu has a 50% chance of also dismissing the site's)

Any way to disable the context menu? Bonus points if it can be done on a per-site basis.

Not sure when the problems (slow and failure to launch) started. Had been using Firefox for years until a coupler of months ago. Tried to use support for help but nothing worked. Started using Chrome more often. Now I use it exclusively. Somehow, I suspect the combination of my use of Yahoo's NordVPN and AOL's Malwarebytes, somehow interfered with Firefox.

I have tried watching videos through chrome and other browsers by searching something via duck duck go and watching that video on duck duck go, and it works on other browser so it must be specific to firefox.

Whenever I try to watch a video, in the drop down bar firefox select to mute audio for some reason. I then select 'allow audio and video' and refresh the page but the video is still muted for some reason. This also happens when I try to use other video sites. This has only started to happen recently in the past two days (and yes I am updated to the latest version of firefox).

Firefox keeps pinning ads for random pages that I have never visited. It happens inconsistently, but sometimes when I open Firefox there will be a random ad page pinned. Even if I unpin it, and reopen Firefox the same ad page will be pinned again. I have tried looking it up in settings but could find anything, that make it pop up.

When I try to view a pdf in the browser, Firefox downloads it first. I went into about:config and changed to browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir = true just to get it to stop downloading to a specified folder, but now it downloads in tmp directory leaving me with the same issue of pdf's piling up on my computer just to view a pdf in the browser.

This never used to be an issue. I do not want to automatically download every single pdf I view on the internet. Is there some way that Firefox can simply render the pdf instead of downloading it?

I am trying to do a print of a PDF. I can see the whole image on the screen. But, when I print it, all I get are lines. I then copied the link page for the PDF and used it in OPERA Browser. NO PROBLEMS. It did print fully the way it looks on the screen.

No wonder I am again going to delete FIREFOX and go with a different browser. Firefox is having too many problems and I already have enough headaches without Firefox help.
