Firefox browser will not open at all. When clicking on ion, it just makes the Windows circle or a few seconds and stops. Meanwhile, I've tried a number of things including flushing the DNS Winsock and re-installing it two times while clearing everything. Please advise. My three other browsers work fine. I had lost some important bookmarks. Please fix, and or advise ASAP. Thanks _ Alan

I checked out both websites on Chrome and both work perfectly on Chrome. Any suggestions?

When I press the back button (or use touchpad gestures) the back button refreshes the page rather than take me to the previous page.

I've noticed that this seems to only happen on Youtube.

I've updated to the latest version of Youtube. This only happens on the new M1 Macbook Pro. All of my other Macbooks have never had this issue.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks!

In Mac, taping the space bar twice in a row adds a full stop in almost all text boxes. But in Firefox this feature does not work. (Double-space simple adds two spaces.) Is there a fix? (In other browsers, e.g. Chrome or Safari the double-space adds a full stop in text boxes as expected.)

After the 107.0 update a couple of days ago, the back button in Firefox irregularly does not work. I've observed the following:

1. The URL in the address bar changes to the previous site, however the website that is open remains the same. Selecting the address and pressing enter correctly brings me to the previous site. 2. Pressing back 2 times brings me to the correct site and temporarily fixes the issue. 3. The problem is not site-specific. 4. It occurs irregularly and I haven't been able to reproduce it intentionally.

I am attaching browser data to help with troubleshooting. Let me know if there is anyway I can help.

I'm running Windows 10 I've tried the following fixes:

  • Uninstall (as fully as I could) and reinstalled Firefox. note: I did get and "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem" error; but installed this missing dll file in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 directory. After installing this dll file, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox I'm still getting the same error message?!? I downloaded the file from www.dll-files.com/
  • I disabled Bitdefender per manufacturers instructions and it did not fix it, so it wasn't problematic.
  • I've tried all of the suggested fixes that were stated in Firefox support, such as clearing the cache, etc.
  • Bitdefender firewall query: "firefox.exe has been allowed" when I check to see if the is blocking it.

I've done all of the above stages so many times, I'm sure the "order they're listed" is not the order that I performed them.

I'm using Chrome to try and get this issue resolved. My wife is insistent that I fix Firefox as she doesn't want to use Chrome (EXTREMELY old-fashioned when it comes to change - she's 67 years old; yes I'm 69).

Does anyone here have a solution for me? Thanks

Side note: This computer is a machine I built several years ago (I've probably built 12 computers) that was in storage. I had to send my Dell Alienware Aurora R8 into Dell to get fixed. Upon starting this computer, I updated windows, Firefox and my Anti-virus (which meant uninstalling it on her old machine and reinstalling it on this machine). Firefox was working flawlessly; then the next day it would not load "any" pages.

Firefox will not start after the latest update. Windows 11 After the update when clicking on the Firefox icon the blue circle runs as if FF is loading then disappears. My Firefox home page does not appear. Task Manager does not show any instance of Firefox. Firefox has been operating fine until now ( for 18 years+) I have removed, downloaded and reinstalled Firefox many times with the same result. I have restarted the computer, I have turned off my anti-virus (Malwarebytes) I cannot follow most of the FAQ troubleshooting advice as most all assume that Firefox is running.

Help.

Thanks, jmbiii3@verizon.net

The educated guesses are incorrect as they are looking at another computer.

so i looked it up and apparently this has happened before. at random times on different websites all of a sudden the copy, paste, cut, and undo functions disappear. the control key commands and right clicking do not work. the solutions offered in those threads did not fix the problem.

i cannot post a screenshot becasue it just started working again. and no it is not a website that blocks it. also not just one website this happened on so... yeah.

firefox has been disappointing me recently. i will be sad if i have to switch to another browser after all these years.

when opening tickets in our helpdesk system, TeamDynamix, the new window opens on the main display. if the Firefox browser is open on another display the new window has empty space on the right and bottom (see attachment). if the Firefox browser is open on the main display or the new window opens on the same display as the Firefox browser there is no empty space. dragging the new window from the main display to the display with the Firefox browser open the empty space disappears and the new window displays correctly.

this only happen recently. with an older version of Firefox (not sure which version), there was no empty space on the new window.

I created a Firefox Add-On that inserts some HTML into web pages. It stopped working when I updated to Firefox 107. (I was overdue for an update and had been using Firefox 105 something... I think it was Firefox 105.1.)

The strange thing about it is that when I inspect the HTML after running my Add-On, I can see that the correct HTML is still being inserted into the web page, it just isn't being rendered by Firefox.

Any help resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

For last few weeks I am have trouble opening my browser after clicking on it several times. Some times I have to right click and select open from the drop down menu. I done the restore to the previous version, but did not help but did loose all my bookmarks and other personal setting, which has taken me a long time to fine tune to my personal likes, I am not happy about this. I do not have any trouble opening Microsoft Edge. If I can not get this fixed soon, I will switch to Google chrome. This has cost me a lot of frustration over the last several weeks and properly add to that once I get it fix, as I have lost all my personal setting. I am a 75 year old frustrated man. Thanks Gary

I've noticed that for the last few days, Firefox takes several seconds to start. I happened to look in settings while I have the spinning ball and waiting for it to start, and noticed that the "Checking for updates" is running. The moment that it verifies Firefox is up to date, my initial browser page opens with my default page. It looks like version 107 was installed on Nov 15th, which is just about the time I noticed this problem occurring.

Is there any fix for this or is that something I have to live with until enough people notice it as a problem and a new update is released? Using Windows 10 if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any help from any of you.

Hello there,

I installed Firefox with high expectation, and mostly it satisfied me but this issue: it cannot connect to the server at my portfolio website. Firefox apps on iPad, iPhone, and Android can. It only happens on the desktop Firefox on PC.

For your information, Firefox is allowed through Windows Defender Firewall.

Weirdly enough, it works immediately once I create a new Firefox profile. But the issue just comes back when I reboot my PC and start Firefox with the profile which worked one minute before. I have no idea what kind of glitch it is, but I thought anyone might know about it. Any suggestion?
