Well, where do I even start? Here's the various problems I've been having lately:

Firefox version 77.0 on macOS Catalina (10.15.5)...

  • Frequently won't start
  • Won't quit
  • Not responding (requiring a 'force quit')
  • Won't open ANY sites ('transferring data...' endlessly displaying in bottom left corner)

I've already tried some fixes, none of which have done any good:

  • Cleared history and cache
  • Restarted computer
  • Uninstalled then re-installed Firefox (3 times!)
  • Started in Safe Mode (the problems don't recur there, but that doesn't explain why 'normal' mode is so problematic)

There are never any error messages. Firefox for some reason is seriously screwed up and has become utterly unusable. There are no problems at all with my other browser (Safari).

Grateful for any help!

For weeks now I have had repeated problems in signing in to Gmail and Firefox Browser. I am continually being asked to identify myself and to change passwords etc. At the root of the problem appears to be thzt Google or Firefox has decided that I live in USA. I have never even visited USA. I have lived in FRANCE some 25 years. But, someone has decided otherwise and I suspect it is someone with a VPN who keeps changing his address. There is possibly a fault with the latest version of Google which over-writes the French telephone dial code (0033) with a code from USA. My IP address is also changed to a US number. The last time I did a trace I arrived at gchao.com in Florence , Colorado. (23.249.172.213).

I have tried three times to bring this problem to Google but I never receive an answer.

I have three levels of anti-malware in use. The problem appears to principally relate to an HP portable running Windows 10. VIZ ---

Firefox on Windows 10 United States (estimated) IP address: 104.243.212.135 09:16:46 (CDT) Sunday, 28 Jun 2020

I cannot spend the rest of my life changing passwords. Can you plrease help me.

I just had my OS reinstalled with Win 10 32 bit on my 64 bit system. When I try to up or download anything from the web, FFox freezes and need to exit it with End Task. Could the 332 bit win 10 be the problem?

I tried it in safe mode, same problem.

are there some settings I can look at? I tried Chrome and no problem downloading, Hope someone can help I like FFox more then the others.

even when I go to clear cookies from a site like this one https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/ by clicking the padlock icon, and select Clear Cookies and Site data, it freezes.

I can download and Save programs top right of the screen.

I did a clean install, and my issue still persists. Anything else I can try??

Hello,

I am creating an html page, which is stored into my computer, and on opening it with Firefox, a javascript function that should run when the page opens, it doesn't. It does in chrome, but in Firefox it doesn't (77.0.1 (64bit)).

The definition of the function is not inline. Other than that, it is a regular function.

Any clues?

I do not have any add ons installed in firefox.

Thank you in advance,

Diego

Due to runing Windows 7 and Microsoft no longer supporting this, I purchased a new Laptop, this came with windows 10 s installed, although I can switch to Windows 10, apparently it is not recommended and switching back would be impossible, but with Windows 10 s installed, you can not load Firefox or bookmarks, as Firefox has not been approved by Windows. If anyone can give any information or advice, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Surely one warning is enough! Any way to change that?

When I type in search tab, the page always refreshing so I cant ever make a complete sentence and search it. It is the same case when I want to type my email it reloads continuously. After reinstalling, it flashes several times like thousands times even I cant open add ons windows since it refreshes a lot. It also happens in Chrome and Edge. But when I type in Words or Windows Search, it's totally normal. How to fix this? It's totally annoying.
