I've had this problem for a while and it's kept me from actually using the program. At any given time when I try to run the application, it never lasts for more than a couple seconds before it suddenly stops with no warning. Whenever I get these crashes, the Crash Reporter never opens. Because of this issue I can't open it in troubleshooting mode. At this point I have tried fully resetting my PC twice, uninstalling McAfee, had multiple malware scans, and have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox itself multiple times. I'm really not all that good at operating computers, I just kind of know how to navigate files. I don't know what else to do at this point.

So I’m looking at a help document in a web page. It tells me to push this button or that. So I go the affected app and try to find the button mentioned in the help file. Can’t find it, so return to Firefox to re-read the help file. The window is gone. I can find the tab for it, so I can open it pretty quick, but why do I have to? Why does that window have to close? This is yet another reason to switch from Firefox to something else.

I wish to remove the ugly looking line between my custom home button and the first tab. You can find that on the top left. I already have userChrome.css set up and I found no help on the r/FirefoxCSS subreddit.

My userChrome.css code:

```

root {

--toolbar-field-focus-border-color: transparent !important; --toolbarbutton-inner-padding: 10px !important; --toolbarbutton-border-radius: 2em !important; --urlbar-container-padding: 0px !important; }

  1. nav-bar {

box-shadow: none; }

  1. urlbar {

padding: 8px !important; }

  1. urlbar-background {

background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255) !important; border-radius: 16px !important; box-shadow: rgb(230, 230, 230) 0px 0px 5px 0px !important; }

.tab-background { border-radius: 16px !important; box-shadow: rgb(225, 225, 225) 0px 1px 5px 0px !important; }

.tabbrowser-tab .close-icon{ border-radius: 2em !important; margin-right: 0px !important; }

.tabbrowser-tab .close-icon:hover { background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.05) !important; outline: none !important; }

  1. tabs-newtab-button:hover > .toolbarbutton-icon {

background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.25) !important; border-radius: 2em !important; }

  1. PlacesToolbarItems .bookmark-item {

padding: 5px; margin: 25px; }

  1. navigator-toolbox { border: none !important;}
  1. PersonalToolbar {

box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1) 0px 1px 4px !important; } ```

For anyone who can be of EXTRA help, I wish to also fully round the search bar in my "about:home" which you can see is underneath the FireFox logo. I want to add my own custom border radius of "2em" and remove the blue outline when selected.

Hi,

WSJ opinion pages won't load fully on Firefox. The same webpage works on other browsers. This has been a recurring issue ever since I switched over to Firefox. It's the main reason why I still keep Google Chrome around.

I've tried updating to the newest version of Firefox and also iOS. Also, clearing my cache/cookies works sometimes but the problem keeps coming back.

Whenever I open a new tab, I start typing into the search bar at the top of my screen. The problem is, every time I open a new tab, I am on google (which I have no problem with); and when I go to type whatever I need to type into the search bar at the top of my screen, the URL from google stays there. So, for instance, if I open a new tab and try to go to Youtube by typing www.youtube.com into my searchbar and then hitting enter, I end up searching www.youtube.comhttps://www.google.com/ instead of just www.youtube.com. I've tried finding somewhere in settings where I can change this, but I can't find anything.

Today I installed a new extension (Bitwarden) and want to add the icon to the toolbar. I can't find it anywhere. The add-on shows up in the add-on manager but there's nothing there to help me add the icon. The little puzzle piece in the upper right of the browser -- click on that and Bitwarden isn't listed.

How do I fix this? In Chrome there's a simple toggle switch in the extension manager to add the icon to the toolbar. Frankly, if I can't get this Bitwarden icon to display I can't use Firefox at all. Thanks.

Firefox (a new up-to-date install) has been very crashy on my new computer -- PC running Windows 11.

I ran troubleshooting mode and it shows 0 crash reports.

On my old computer, I had 4 Firefox windows open, a half dozen extensions, ~200 tabs and it was quite stable. This brand new install is running one window, 3 extensions, a dozen tabs open, and freezes and crashes pretty much every time I try to read my email (or do anything else that involves clicking).

How do get a stable Firefox?

I sometimes have a problem connecting to a URL. It does not make any difference which URL. Microsoft Edge has the same problem when this occurs.

I have two network connections. One is via Ethernet and one via WiFi. I generally don't connect the WiFi since I am sitting next to my router. Yesterday, when this occurred, I connected the WiFi and everything worked. I thought it had something to do with my WiFi, but today when it failed I tried the same thing and the problem continued.

I ran the Microsoft troubleshooter and it displayed that I was connected to the Internet.

When this occurs I can ping my router successfully, but I cannot connect to my router via Firefox or Microsoft Edge.

Today I rebooted my router, even though other devices do not have a problem connecting to the Internet, and when the boot was completed everything worked. When I rebooted the router my PC indicated that it did not have a connection and when it was able to access the router initially it indicated that I did not have a connection to the Internet. When my PC indicated it had an Internet connection Firefox functioned correctly.

I have a UPS which has my router, modem, and desktop PC connected. We have had power failures and either my PC is turned off or I turn it off. My router and modem continue to function and we can access the internet via tablets or cell phones. I was wondering if the power failure somehow could have affected my network provider and I needed to reset my router so that it could establish a new connection to the modem. Don't know if this makes any sense or not.

I have Microsoft Office 2021 which is Microsoft's perpetual license version of Office 365. I use Outlook in Microsoft Office 2021. What surprised me is that when this is going on Outlook will function correctly.

Is there anything I can access in Firefox that can help me determine what is going on, or do you have any suggestions?

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.
