Hello. Firefox browser. Windows 11 interface is freezing. Completely randomly. And exactly when using Firefox. The sound works at the same time. Only a complete forced shutdown of the PC helps. The keyboard does not respond, the pointer moves but nothing is pressed.

I'm on Firefox Developer Edition 119.0b9 (32-bit) and Windows 11 Pro 22H2 but I've been experiencing this problem a lot longer ago even before upgrading to Windows 11. The first thing I open in my computer is Firefox, it gets the window itself quickly but the page stays blank with the gray loading dot going right and left for nearly 10 minutes before the page loads and Firefox works normally. I don't experience any issues while browsing the internet after that long loading but it's really annoying especially when I'm in a hurry and I don't have 10 minutes to stare at a blank page.

I have been desperately trying to get off Chrome and onto Firefox and I simply cannot. Over the past month I have tried at least a dozen times to install Firefox and migrate, to absolutely no avail whatsoever. Any time I "launch" Firefox, I simply get a flicker of a black (or sometimes white) window, and then nothing. Firefox immediately disappears off the taskbar after a mere flicker. It doesn't even show up in task manager during this process. The browser absolutely refuses to launch, period. I have tried uninstalling Chrome. I have tried reinstalling Firefox. I have tried restarting my PC. I have tried updating Windows. I have tried booting Firefox in Safe Mode. I have tried running Firefox as Administrator. There is no error message. There is no bug report. There is no Windows alert. I have scanned the PC for malware at least five times, it's completely clean. I've tried "refreshing" Firefox in the uninstall menu. I've looked through every existing support article known to man at least five times over. I've tried checking my antivirus software, and I've tried checking for files that can reportedly keep the browser from running, none of which I have on the PC. I have tried simply launching the damn browser more times than I can count. The result never changes or deviates from Firefox simply flickering for a nanosecond before crashing. Please help me find a way to just launch the browser.

Hello, Every time I open Firefox there is the standard "Sign In" button in the top right corner and then also a second "Sign In" window that pops up to the right of the search bar partially covering the search bar. This is the window that I would like to disable or stop from opening. I would appreciate any assistance you can provide on the subject.

Thanks!  :)

Recently, when I try to play video clips, or click on "Live Updates" on CNN.com, the videos will not play (no play icon), and when clicking on "live Updates, the screen flashes to that page but then goes blank. Is this a bug in the recent updates to Firefox, or is something going on with CNN? This is the only site that I'm experiencing this with. Thank you in advance. Cheers.

Tired of the bullying tactics of Microsoft forcing me to accept Microsoft Edge when all I want is Google Chrome, so I'm thinking of making Mozilla my default browser, but I'm concerned about whether Mozilla will tranfer all my info. I sell the occasional bits on Etsy and Ebay. I had found the perfect tool to edit my photos on Chrome. Now this has gone haywire because I am forced into using Edge, which does not give me anything like the editing choices I have on Chrome. I have followed all the directions given by Microsoft to get off Edge and back into Chrome but they have all failed miserably, so I am trapped in Edge and all my efforts are turning into Groundhog Day ! Also if I return to Firefox, what will happen to all my photos, and the folders they are kept in ? As an 86 year old, I need clear, concise directions on how I can restore everything I need to be able to return to a browser I was completely comfortable with. Please advise.
