This is similar to reported roblem with facebook pages but my facebook pages don't freeze. This started a couple of updates (latest beta) ago and can be worked around by using task manager ot close the plugin container task until a page is changed in the problem website. Thus this is very annoying and persistant.

I have to manually shut down the computer to make it stop loading new tabs with the phone number. When I re-start I need to close all the tabs it created (last time it was over 60 tabs). I think it is a bug in Firefox, or my version is defective. I have not yet tried to re-install Firefox.

Hello,

since the last update (v63.0, Windows) I have an issue that makes Firefox not usable. I hope you can help me.

Every time I open a new webpage, over a hyperlink or manually, Firefox takes 5-8 seconds until it starts to load the page. It seems like Firefox does nearly nothing at this point, there is no traffic going out, no CPU usage etc. There is also no status message in the bottom left corner like "Waiting for https://foobar.com...". After 5-8 seconds Firefox starts to load the page and then it goes very fast. This makes it impossible to use Firefox, because normal activities take a lot of time, because every click takes 5-8 seconds. On chrome on the same PC everything is OK.

I already did nearly everything to reset and clear my Firefox installation, I reinstalled and deleted the Mozilla folder in the AppData directory, the problem still persists. My colleague has the same issue since this update, so it's not only my PC.

I hope you can help me.

Hi, I'm currently running version 63.0.1 , something has changed with my browser, previously when I clicked on a pdf file it would automatically open within the firefox browser. It's rather frustrating to me as a user of this great browser when a pdf file attempts to open using something other than firefox. I feel sure there MUST be some method to correct this issue. Thanks, David

I wonder why this very important field is removed. I have over 10 years of information recorded in this field for reference. This seems completely unneccessary to remove it. At least, could you provide an import tools so that user can move those description into some other field in the bookmark?

I saw many people asked this question, and no solution works for me. By exporting the information to a html is not enough, because I need to manually handle over 10 years of description information, which is foolish.

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

It seems more and more websites DON'T like Firefox. I am a music composer and have to send audio files to various websites. Most of them do not work with Firefox and I am forced to use Safari (yuk). What is it about Firefox that these website hate? FYI . . . here's a couple of offenders: www.songtradr.com https://app.musicsupervisor.us

I've also noticed that uploading in general seems to be more bandwidth heavy with Firefox. I like Firefox because of the many wonderful 3rd party plugins that are available and syncing to my devices is really nice too. But, if these problems continue . . . I'll have to say goodby.

Hope this helps and hope future updates will make improvements. marknox

So whenever I'm trying to connect to localhost/bWAPP or 172.0.0.1 it just dosen't work. It says:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web." 

The same thing happens but it says "localhost" instead of 127.0.0.1 when I try to connect to localhost/bWAPP I will send a screenshot of it. And yes I've tried chrome but it didn't work.

Hi,

I've been using multiple browsers so far, and I'm interested in the speed of Firefox and I'm interested. I would like to change 'Open Address in New Tab' function, which is now 'Alt + return', to 'Command + return'. It seems that Firefox does not support this seemingly simple function. The 'Saka key', which I recommend on the official website, has many features that I want before like 'Vimium', but it was not what I was looking for this. I need help.

Thanks,
