Hi,

since about a week or 2, Firefox is extremely slow, the page loading times are atrocious and I am out of ideas. When I compare to chrome or edge, we are talking about anywhre from 2x to5x+ slower page loading times. It happens on any page I open. I never had this issue before and have been using FF for many years.

Technicals: Firefox v. 80.0.1 (64-bit), OS Windows 10, all updates installed. Extensions i use in FF: Duckduckgo Privacy Essentials, Facebook container, Google Translator, image search options, VLC, ublock origin, Web Developer & Reddit enhancment suite.

What I already tried: log out and in and re-sync, clear data & cache, Private mode, Firefox refresh.

Hope someone can help,

The subject line say it all. I'm running version 80.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu.

This appears to have only happened since the last upgrade. I regularly work with 20-30 tabs open at a time so it's very annoying, and if it wasn't for the Session History Scrounger for Firefox (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html) I'd be totally screwed. The latest version is also cripplingly slow at times, frequently consuming 100% of CPU as shown by the 'top' command.

First I need to point out I'm very difficult user for FF :) Right now I have 52 windows and 476 tabs open

This not a hardware problem as I have good CPU (Ryzen 5 3600) and 64 gigs of memory - running FF 80.0.1 x64 on Windows 10 19041 x64

Until recently everything was fine - I'm not able to tell when that changed but it's just few days

When I start FF, some tabs (from "restore" session) never load. Tab just shows its loading but never finishes. Moreover if I try to open new tabs, they RANDOMLY also never load - doesn't matter which site/page (in other browser same url opens instantly). I need to open X new tabs, paste URL and hit enter into each and after a while the Xth tab loads instantly. X is changing - with freshly started browser its something like 2-4 new tabs. Later it can be 10 or more until "I find" the tab which loads. When I do that, i can open Dev Tools before pasting URL - Networking tab shows no requests, nothing. Same with right-clicking links in working tabs (open link in new tab).

Working tabs are usually good - left clicking links or F5 works fine. But if the tab is left open for some time without activity, it can also stop working (F5 doesn't help)

What i tried: - disable my Firewall (Kaspersky) - restart FF in safe mode without plugins - no "clear cache and cookies" as its not related to any specific site or page

I got the idea recently that maybe there is some problem with FF processes "rotting" (multi process architecture) so I'v tried to kill some of the sub-processes in Task Manager. Of course its hard to find the right one but I'v managed multiple times to hit the right process and suddenly all "loading forever" tabs showed as "crashed" and when I hit "Restart all crashed", all loaded instantly

Any help appriciated! Thanks!

It seems that the text and icons on my tabs have stopped working. Nothing happens when I click them. If I click the tab outside of the text or icon, they work as expected. This is driving me crazy! Anyone have an idea of what's going on?

Details:

  • Clicking the text on a tab doesn't focus that tab, nothing happens
  • Clicking just below the text, but inside of the tab, activates the tab as it should
  • Same is true for the new tab button
  • Pinned tabs are not affected, they work fine
  • Hovering over the tab doesn't highlight the tab, unless you hover below the tab

What I've tried, that didn't work:

  • Tried a full "Reset Firefox"
  • Started Firefox in Safe mode with
  • Switched from Firefox beta to Firefox stable by reinstalling from scratch

Mitigation:

  • Maximizing Firefox makes all the tabs work again (!)

Context:

  • This started happening after I had my computer hooked up to an external screen. I've tried connecting to the same monitor again, but this doesn't change the current broken behaviour.

I'm running out of ideas, could anyone tell me what's going on?

Hello, I'm trying to setup basic policy.json file to configure firefox for all my users. I'm stuck in one step, we require SSL client certificate to access our intranet.

1.So far we are importing personal *.pfx file via Firefox GUI in personal tab, but I want to import this cert via policy.json and So far im not able to do it, I dont know how to set requiret certifacate password.

2. I was also thinking using Windows cert store. I imported certifacete to Windows and set flag security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true in about:config. But firefox is not using it. However Edge is working just fine.

Only way i was able to get website working so far is manualy importing that certificate via Firefox GUI.

Which way should I go? And do you have any tips how to get it working? Thanks a lot.

It's rather insignificant. But I was just wondering if this was an issue other people experience and if it's fixable. I've created a custom theme using Firefox color and am currently using it. After shutting down my MacBook and then opening Firefox (the next day typically), it would display a previous (not custom) theme for about 5 seconds before suddenly changing to my custom one. Similarly, I have downloaded the extension, 'Infinity New Tab' and customized it a lot. For some reason, when simply opening a new window in Firefox, it displays the standard, default new tab appearance. Only when I open a new tab in that window, 'Infinity New Tab' is displayed. In the home section of preferences it says that the extension is indeed controlling my new tab page. If this is out of your control then I apologize. I would appreciate any assistance or information. Thanks.

If extension gather some private data about my activity, like for example https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clipboardhelper/ which gather my clipboard history.

"This add-on needs to:

   Get data from the clipboard
   Input data to the clipboard
   Store unlimited amount of client-side data
   Access your data for all websites"

How to assess the resulting privacy risks?

1. Isn't there insignificant chance these data leak out thru other extensions? For example on Andorid (i am on Windows) i think that i heard that the apps has some common storage and it was/is possible one app read data of other app. Maybe it is not true and likely does not apply on Firefox on Windows.

2. or this extension send my data out to author or such? Btw. is there(why not) setting which would by default disallow extension to send data it gathered away via internet? And user would have to allow it on prompt.

Recently my laptop was fixed by Dell (under warranty) and its motherboard was replaced. Since then tabs crash from time to time, a few time every hour. Sometimes upon opening a new URL sometimes while working. It writes "Gah. Your tab just crashed." Sometimes clicking "Recover" helps, sometimes it crashes again and I need to click it more times.

2. I can type in text, but if I type a Return, it will no longer type until I click on the screen where I want to type.

After discussion with BT during which I deleted the Cookies and Cache, I tried Microsoft Edge instead and it worked perfectly, suggesting that there is an incompatibility between BT Yahoo email and Firefox for PC.

I would be grateful for your help as I would prefer to use Firefox.
