Let me explain our situation.

We have the following setup, we use RES in Citrix and on the Citrix servers is Firefox ESR installed; version 82.03 Now after months of use, our Citrix servers are filling up. After investigation, it turned out that the RES FireFox Application cache file was more than 1GB for some users. They had several, some over 100 profile (default-release) folders. Each with approximately 20MB of data. How can we solve this? Throwing away the RES cache file is an idea, but that also removes all settings, favorites and the like. Not the nicest solution.

Please help!

Only very recently (last 1-2 weeks?) I've noticed that Google Maps refuses to open the full version in Firefox. I have FF 83.0 in Ubuntu 20.04.1.

You can (try to) force the full version to load with this URL: https://www.google.com/maps?force=webgl

But if I go to that address, a known message pops up at the bottom: "We’re sorry, only the lite mode of the new Google Maps is available at this time."

Same happens in a private window.

If I open it in Chrome browser in Linux, it loads fine.


I suspect this is a Google issue or choice to limit the functionality, but just want to check if other Linux Firefox users are seeing this??

If not, any suggestions for something to try? Like I said, it only became a thing very recently.


Thank you!

Running Firefox 83.0 on Ubuntu (20.04). After upgrading Ubuntu to current version, Firefox will not load Yahoo e-mail in regular mode. Just thrashes and does nothing. All other websites working fine.

Tried safe mode, and Yahoo mail loads just fine in safe mode. As such, I turned off hardware acceleration. Did not help. Then disabled the only extension I had on Firefox. Then outright removed extension. Cleared cache. Nothing.

Yahoo mail still loads just fine in safe mode, but simply will not load in regular mode. I can access the yahoo main page, but if I click into yahoo mail from there it doesn't load that way either.

Thanks for any help!!

Mac OS daemons prevent all page loading

On my 2017 iMac, OS 10.15.x, I'm running an app-blocking firewall, called HandsOff! by OnePeriodic, which is great at controlling which system processes can connect and report to the web. Firefox (v.83.0) runs fine until a few specific system daemons make contact with my computer, after which no page will load. The daemons in question are remindd, mediasharingd, touristd, and amsaccountsd. Normally HandsOff! sets my preferences for each process, to refer to when those processes attempt another connection. However, these four daemons' prefs do not remain in the settings, yet FFox still refuses to load. Not sure if all daemons are to blame, or only 1 or 2, but they seem related. Other browsers do not work either, but Tor Browser works fine! (which i'm using to send this msg.) My only remedy is to un-install and re-install HandsOff!. Then FFox and others work great until those daemons show up again.

I realize this is partially a HandsOff! issue, but i wish i could start a group email between developers at Mozilla, Tor, and One Periodic, to compare why Tor is the only browser to get through, and to overcome this block.

Thanks!

Recently, I have been experiencing issues with several of my Office365 SharePoint websites: some page elements are not loading, other are constantly reloading. In order to access my documents, I have to switch to either Edge or Chrome. Also some other pages sometimes have similar issues (xing.com and others). I have deleted all Mozilla files in %APPDATA% and reinstalled Firefox, which did not help. Looks like there is an issue with the current release (83.0).

I've used Firefox for Mac for decades without any problems.

When I upgraded the Mac OS to Big Sur a few weeks ago, my Mac started crashing frequently, several times a day, sometimes within seconds. After numerous trials, I discovered that the cause was Firefox. If I remove Firefox (along with all the profile information) and use Safari instead, the Mac never crashes. If I download a fresh copy of Firefox and start using it, the mac crashes within hours.

Does anybody know why the latest version of Firefox does not work on Big Sur? Is there a remedy coming? Safari is okay, but I really miss Firefox, and I would like to go back if the problem can be fixed. Thank you.

I often open several tabs from a website in new background tabs in quick succession. Up till a couple of months . ago there wasnt a problem, it may bog down the browser for a second or two but it would all load and display correctly given in time.

What since than had occured is that certain tabs opened that way will be stuck in the loading phase of the site. Usually it will display a blank tab that gets partially rendered when I move the tab in the tab bar. When I say partially rendered I mean it looks like the sites content is displayed but no css is applied.

Whats strange is the data gets to the browser but it gets stuck at some point. Now Im wondering how I can fix that or at least force the page to render without using my mouse to drag tabs around. Which doesnt necessarilly work 100% off the time.

Hello, I use the add-on Simple Tab Groups and have been very happy with it so far! However, yesterday, I was moving some tabs from one group to another when I suddenly noticed that all my tab groups were empty! No idea when this happened as I had been working in one group for a while. The group I'd originally been working in was also empty after I'd closed it to check on others. Could this have happened due to the Firefox update on 25 November? AIs there any way I can recover my grouped tabs still? Thank you, Marieke
