Hi,

I've been experiencing a strange problem with Firefox.

If I click a link from an external app (e.g Outlook), it begins loading in Firefox but will then reset to my homepage which is Google. I am not doing anything to trigger this reset (holding any keys, etc) I am simply just clicking the link, which launches Firefox and resets from loading the link to my homepage. It's very frustrating.

We use an internal email server which is accessed via Firefox (MDaemon) and when pasting a screen capture (either via printscreen or GreenShot) in to an email, the image pastes twice.

This is only the case within Firefox, not an issue when using Edge.

It is occurring company wide so I doubt that it is a profile issue. I have tried running Firefox with hardware acceleration disabled but it didn't have any effect. I have also tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode but again, no difference.

Example shown below; paint window which was captured using alt+printscreen

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to try next?

Yesterday all files and folders on my (win10) desktop suddenly got two blue arrows on them. I googled the problem and it turned out that the desktop folder had gotten the setting for compressing all its content turned on. I changed it back to no compression and the arrows disappeared. Today it happened again, and I changed it back again. However, I noticed that all newly downloaded files are still getting compressed. I made a new folder for the downloads (previously the went straight to the desktop), and the files I copied in to it are fine but all new downloads from FF still get compressed. When I download from Chrome it's fine.

Is this a Firefox problem? I looked through the settings but can't find anything relating to compression.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zagipygmsa8svgd/oIS4QAKxRh.mp4?dl=0

whenever you select for it to show a grid, and a ruler and when you decide to refresh or your code refreshes; those settings are lost. the behavior is a bit unstable however you can clearly see it happening in the video i recorded.

this makes the firefox developer tools completely unusable, i shouldn't have to pick up my mouse and click on the ruler and grid+grid options anytime i refresh. i already did that once, it should be kept on until i decide that i don't want that anymore.

i end up saving and switching back and forth between the editor and the browser probably 2-3 times a minute, that's a lot of extra and unnecessary clicks i will have to spend on reenabling my preferences

Yes, just like I guess millions of other people, Firefox is freezing everyday on my Mac running OS 10.15.5 Catalina. Come on Mozilla. This is frustrating. I've deleted the app, reinstalled the app, restarted my Mac, over and over. Still the problem. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to permanently delete Firefox and use Safari... don't want to... but this is irritating. Why can't Mozilla Firefox get with Apple and fix this?

Upon a windows update, my taskbar gets stuck. I just found out today it was because of Firefox! Firefox was trying to display my sign in box for me to enter my master password. However, I heard and confirmed that the entire time, my laptop was not even signed into upon reboot from the Windows update, it was playing YouTube the entire time! I had not even logged back i to Windows let ALONE Firefox and that sound was playing all night long! I thought I was going crazy! My ear buds are plugged in so the sound was not direct for me to figure out where it was coming fro right away. Also it appears to have failed to render a sanity test? Maybe that is important too?

Firefox (Quantum versions only!) keeps instant crashing on startup even in safe mode without crash reporter opening. Removed profile and any Firefox related files. Clean install made numerous times. Launching on fresh Administrator user account on affected computer also didn't solve crashing. Also crashes in safe mode. Tried everything. Nothing helps.

Hi

I recently installed NetNanny Version 10 on my laptop. After the installation, every time I open Firefox it will crash and close within 5 seconds. As soon as I uninstall NetNanny, Firefox will go back to normal.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox (V76.0.1, 64-bit) and re-installing NetNanny but the same keeps happening over and over. Note I also 'disable' NetNanny temporarily, however Firefox will still crash.

I will appreciate some help with this.

Thanks and regards jB

Hopefully someone will pick this up? Since my Surface Pro updated to Windows 1909 everytime Firefox updates it causes problems with sound. This is whether I am watching video outside Firefox, watching You tube in Firefox or any video in Firefox.

Symptoms.

Watching video in external video player, not having opened Firefox since rebooting surface pro - no issues Open Firefox watch a couple of vids on YouTube and sound fails - try going back to watching videos outside Firefox, video still failed.

Cure- reload Windows.

New update for Firefox (yesterday) and problem re-appears again.

This happened a couple of years ago and I solved it then by deleting Firefox from my Surface Pro. After about 6 months I decided to give it another chance and all was good until after the 1909 update and Firefox updated. Reloaded Windows 1909 (clean copy) and all ok again until yesterday when Firefox updated again.

Guess I'm going to have to reload Windows again to cure the issue caused by Firefox, again.

I have a sizeable number of bookmarks saved in desktop Firefox. They're all saved in the bookmark toolbar. To save space there, I keep many of them nameless so the bookmark is only identifiable by its favicon.

When I downloaded the Firefox app on my Galaxy S8 and set up Sync, it brought over the bookmarks with names onto my phone. However, not only did it not sync my nameless bookmarks, it just deleted them outright. I no longer had my favicons in my bookmark toolbar on my PC.

I found out how to restore my bookmarks, but is there a way to get the nameless bookmarks to sync over to my phone as well? Or at least stop Sync from deleting them? Is this a bug of Sync?

Thanks!

I am considering switching from chrome to firefox. While trying to import my passwords i wont get them all.

Using the import feature inside Firefox I will get about 70% of my usernames and passwords from chrome.

Why it wont import the rest makes absolutely no sense at all.

Firefox gives no option to import from a CSV or anything else but that one button.

I get the impression the whole feature is not tested properly, If Firefox wants people to switch browser this just has to work flawlessly.

Could this note be referred please, to the FF programming manager? First my congrats on FF overall of course, to you and your many volunteers. But I notice a large philosophical programming problem which you might consider.

This problem mostly shows with multiple tabs open. Web servers certainly are slow, and many pages' Html etc poor. This all results in lots of delays such as reported during:

 Waiting for ()
 Read ()
 Transferring data from ()
 Performing a TLS handshake to ()
 Connecting to ()

These display the moving "working" dot in the left of the affected tab title. And less often, "(not responding)" in FF's title bar, which eventually gets cleared automatically.

I have reviewed all 17 screens, and a number of the individual results, from today's FF forum search of:

  169 results for (not responding) for Firefox

None address the lack of prioritized co-operative multi-tasking/ threading, DURING such delays as "Waiting for ()". During such a necessary wait, it is very slow at best, e.g. for a user to switch tabs. Even to one which is ready for display.

Responsiveness to user input should be the top multi-tasking priority. Tab switching. Rendering/ display of the foreground tab. Scrolling that down. Tab closing by user!, and "X" to STOP a page from loading -- give those user clicks priority. Let's not have to wait 10 seconds for a right-click to open its option box. Let the other busy tabs finish up their work, overlapped in the background priority-wise.

This could be done now, but perhaps it would be difficult for volunteer programmers. Worse case might require a custom replacement, for the effective TCP part of the default vanilla TCP/IP stack. However I suspect a lot could be fixed short of that, with the correct management encouragement and guidelines. At least if the continuous motion of the "busy dot" indicator in the tab title is a task, just change that to something like just gray-ed out while busy.

My experience is with much headroom: CPU (50%), memory, disk, and network bandwidth, per Task Manager. NO McAfee. Mainly just ZoneAlarm taking 30% of that CPU 50% usage. This is not a problem with start-up delay. And delays within only one open tab are necessary, of course. Cheers

Firefox обновился в фоновом режиме и требует перезапуска. Хотя в настройках выбрано "Проверять наличие обновлений, но позволять вам решать, устанавливать ли их"

Браузер обновился сам, без предупреждения, проигнорировав мои настройки, и не позволяет продолжить работу без перезапуска. О найденном обновлении он сообщил относительно давно. Я его игнорировал, кажется, больше недели, потому что не хотел перезагружать несколько сотен вкладок. Компьютер всё это время был включен, а браузер оставался открыт. Вопроса, собственно, три: 1. Это баг или фича? 2. Если это фича, то как её отключить, чтобы такое не повторилось в будущем? 3. Можно ли что-то сделать сейчас, чтобы продолжить работу, не перезапуская браузер?

ОС - Linux mint. Firefox установлен НЕ из репозитория, а как отдельный deb пакет, скачанный с официального сайта Мозиллы. Версия 68.0.2 (64-битный).

There seems to be a bug, Firefox keeps resetting itself. I downloaded the new version that's when it started. Every day or two it kicks me out of all my accounts, uninstalls the add-ons and deletes all my history/cache/everything. So I reinstalled an older version and its still happening. I've been using Firefox for years and always loved it, never had any issues. Haven't changed any settings on my end that would affect this.
