This problem started around version 97 (i had a break from computer and went back at v 97) but older versions still had that problem after i revert to it. i did:

  • turned hardware acceleration and recommended settings off
  • cleared cache and profile few times
  • offline and safe mode
  • restarting and reinstalling for few times
  • installing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022 (vc_redist.x64.exe).

still hangs up.

it sometimes opens after i restarted,what can cause this?

Gmail freezes & keeps trying to connect. All other sites work & there is no problem with internet connection or speed. Refreshing the tab does not help. I have to close and restart Firefox. I've tried disabling all extensions but as this only happens once every day or so it is difficult to troubleshoot. I have these extensions: AdBlocker Ultimate; Copy Page Address; Copy PlainText; DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; Enhancer for YouTube; Google Page Translate; Reverse Google Image Search; Tab Mix - Links; Wikipedia-En; YouTube search engine. Thanks.

My current Theme is Dark Fox. But, previously my backgrounds and menus were all white and easy to read. Now for some reason they're black and difficult for me to deal with.

How do I reset to white and sync them on all my devices?

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

On occasion with mulitple pages open on firefox it then stops opening up to any new page. I can be watching a YouTube video on page 1 while reading on page 2 or more, and then page 2 will no longer bring up new pages. Page one also stops going to any new site requested at that point. Although the curent page will still work. At that point I have to shut down the browser to regain control. What is happening here?

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

I am trying trying to install Thunderbird, as told by my Internet Provider. They have indicated they will no longer allow he POP3 version that my email software has because of security reasons and have indicated to use you as a replacement. So when I try to install this software on my computer I get an error message, indicating that the User Name is incorrect and I have verified it several times, I know it to be correct, the only thing that I can think of is that Thunderbird does not accept of ".info" into the software. If so is there a way a to get this added to the software so I can get added to the software? My next question is the ".online" extension is the I would be inquiring about as I also use that extension for my business.

Please let me know. My email address is [email]@joelsphotos.info.

Got a tough one: First time I have seen this problem: FF portable has an executable out front up top, and an executable in a deeper 32-bit folder and a 64-bit folder. Any modifications to the browser, including themes and colors and appearance mods ...are displayed when you open the browser to surf, (32-bit,) but if I click from an email link - it opens the uppermost executable instead - with none of the mods I have made to the browser. (So the browser as it first appeared on install, with no/zero/nada customizations and extensions.) I cannot see how to make an email link refer to the deeper executable. Get it? Thanks for any assistance. (!)
