Firefox Tab Crashing Randomly

Firefox 56.0.2 Crash Report [@ mozilla::dom::workers::serviceWorkerScriptCache::`anonymous namespace'::CompareNetwork::OnStreamComplete ] https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/… (read more)

Firefox 56.0.2 Crash Report [@ mozilla::dom::workers::serviceWorkerScriptCache::`anonymous namespace'::CompareNetwork::OnStreamComplete ]

https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/01442438-1105-4efa-b3a7-06a2f0180916

So... I know I have a bit of an older version of firefox... skipping right over that...

I had the strangest experience today. I was on https://mangapark.me and suddenly I got a crashed tab error. I don't normally get these and when I do its normally a very rare fluke. This time though it just kept happening. I had read about 10-20 pages on the site before this started to happen. I restarted firefox... restarted the computer... kept happening.

Stranger is that it started to happen on Interpals, Facebook, and YouTube... but then stopped... then started... then stopped again.... It also happened on other manga websites but now has stopped again.... now it seems to be very only mangapark.me

So... in the process of trying to figure out what was going on I loaded firefox in a separate instance and profile and for a good while it worked just fine... then the same issues....

Any ideas?

I am unable to use my keyboard due to peripheral neuropathy in my fingers. The new Firefox is awful. It mirrors the Chrome browser, with its tiny icons and bad layout. There is not much customization allowed. So, for example, I can't add text to icons. And I can't use add-ons like Colorful Tabs, which lets me assign different color and styles to tabs. There far fewer add-ons for FF 51+.

Not only I do not use the keyboard, I can't dictate coding.

If anyone has already written a file (CSS file?) that customizes FF 61+, would they be willing to share it -- including instructions about where the CSS file goes? I would like to update to FF 61+ because it is supposed to be better and faster. But if I have to, I'll stick with the older version until it dies.

Thanks, David

When I accidently double click in the blue browzer bar, firefox puts every single open window away. How do I stop this

I occasionally double click to drag an open window to a new location. When I double click in the top bar of the firefox browser, any open windows are put away, not closed...which destroys the link, but put away like clicking on the minus sign in the upper right blue bar that is next to the "fill page" icon and the red X that destroys the link. This may be a property of MS8.1 POS or it might be Firefox. I am sick and tired of having to open all these windows one by one each time my finger "stutters" producing a rapid double click. I have tried changing single click and double click response delays, but that does not help either. The morons that wrote MS8.1 load the keystrokes instantly without checking timing. Also, does anyone know of an operating system that emulates the MS NT system without all the F------ "features" that pervade later OSes??? Many Thanks for your suggestions!!!

How can I get my bookmarks back?

Thanks, Docfxit

My laptop shuts down as "Slow" Fox uses to may resources. I"ve read the myriad of suggested fixes and none work.

Why do we need to go through all of your suggested fixes when you should be resolving the issues. Looking at IE, and other browser now as this is now awful.

I don't really expect a response as no-one else appears to have had any good info other than: "Go here; try this; do that; let us know how it works" (Doesn't).

You've mucked up what was a good browser. Go back a step and try and fix your mistakes.

I could find no way of registering this major complaint, and was only further irritated by the obtuse approach to feedback ("Firefox makes me sad/makes me happy") - I'm posting this hear so that actual people will read it, others will be about to websearch its discussion, and something might change:

When Firefox has had trouble loading, it sometimes displays an innocuous looking dialogue box asking whether you'd like to run in safe mode or "refresh Firefox". What it is actually asking is if you would like to wipe Firefox, erase your profile, return to factory settings. I previously made the infuriating mistake of choosing refresh because that term is understood to mean 'reload' e.g. refresh a web page, like switching something off then on again—not erasing something and replacing it with a blank empty slate.

As this happened a while back and I'm not risking it again by clicking the option, I don't recall what the full description was but it certainly did not make clear what "refreshing" entailed and to have it presented as a solution for something so minor and nonproblematic as loading slower than usual only ensures more and more users will fall victim to this. Considering the browser defaults to warning the user when they're closing tabs, it's absurd that such a nuclear option is suggested so flippantly and without transparency.

because google is broken im asking here.

https://i.imgur.com/T6cvwSK.jpg

I have 32gb ram so why cant firefox use 20gb? Firefox often max out at 7gb like the image, but once or twize i had it 9gb, but very rare, so why must my firefox lag using 7gb ram when it have another 15gb to pick from ? This is not about how to make firefox faster byt removing, resetting or that yada yada that google shove in your face when you search, I would rather increase ram to make it faster...If I upgrade to 64gb can i get firefox to use 50gb+ of ram ?

If so how do i do that, i feel like I always have lost of ram free, but firefox still lag instead of taking more ram to make it self go faster

I have a corrupt Windows profile that refuses to be repaired and I can't boot into it, so I need to grab what I can from the Windows Profile files and/or registry , I am particularly interested in the bookmarks, history but also the look and feel customisation of the toolbars etc.

I am aware that some of the data will be in the following folder

C:\Users\User1\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default C:\Users\User1\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default

Are there any other folders that need to be copied?

Once copied to a new windows profile is it enough to rename the xxxxxx.default folders above to yyyyyyy.default filename for the new profile or are there registry and/or filename changes required within other files?

Is there a utility that may make this easier?

The history display will show all sites I visited in previous months. How do I get it to show the date I visited that page during that month? I do not want the most recent visit, which it will display and is not during the month I'm looking at. For example, I login to my credit card account every month. History shows a visit to that site every month. I want to know what day of the month back in March I visited the site. Firefox knows I visited that site in March but it shows the most recent visit was May. Both are true. I need to know what day of March I opened the credit card site. Is that data available?

This has been complained about since 2013. There are closed Chrome help comments about this and was never resolved. Since it is happening in all computers I would feel it is the OS changes as Microsoft and Apple compete for add revenue. However it does not make any sense to be on a paid movie site and attempt to search for a movie there and have it Binged or Googled over the internet. This is piracy of your keystrokes and should be outlawed. The fix is to double click on the sites search to keep it there. What a pain. I wish some one would start a new OS so I don't have to be ripped off with my data. Let's get a black box that will trap the data at the home network.
