duplicate https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333308

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...

In Firefox, when I need to use more than 1 tab at a time - for example filling in an official form, when I have to go to my email to retrieve a code sent, when I go back to find the original form I was working on, it has closed or gone. It is proving impossible for me to fillout out forms on offcial sites or for some services becsue when I leave to go to my email, I have to restart the form filling from the start?!! I would be grateful for an VERY easy to follow, jargon free (assume I am very simple - it's OK, I do not mind) solution. becasue i am unable to work when the site i am working on closes everytime I have to go somewhere elase for info.

Hello,

What is the setting to DISABLE thumbnails in Google search results, or ANY search engines. I have the opposite problem of most users here LOL.

I do NOT want to see thumbnails on any search results from any search engines. The closest solution I've found on these forums from back in 2013 no longer works (see below):

Do you mean the thumbnails that you see on the about:newtab page?

You can create these Boolean prefs on the about:config page to prevent Firefox from generating thumbnails for the about:newtab page.

   name: browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled with value: true
   name: pageThumbs.enabled with value: false 

You can right-click on the about:config page to open the right-click context menu and choose New > Boolean to create both prefs as a new Boolean type pref.

   http://kb.mozillazine.org/about:config 

You need to delete the thumbnails folder in the Firefox profile folder to remove already stored web page thumbnails."



Thanks in advance for the assist! :-)

I've been using Spanish (Mexico) dictionary for a few years as my default spell checking dictionary. However, it lacks a lot of common words and local idioms that I use everyday.

How can I create a new dictionary for Spanish (Colombia), or contribute to the Mexican one? I can't find a Github repo with the project.

I use soundcloud often, and have recently had the issue of the website not being able to load after i launch it the first time. Autofill passwords works fine, it loads with no issue, but then when i try to load it again it's unable to. if i delete the website's cookies i'm able to load into it again, otherwise it just won't work. I've completely cleared out my cache and that helped for a little while but the issue still persists. Is there any known instances of this/ any plugins i can use to always remove the cookies of a specific website, as that may be a viable workaround.

I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.
