I can log onto Facebook but as soon as I get to my feed the tab crashes. No other site but Facebook is causing this to happen. I've submitted the crash reports but that is it. Viewed it afterward but I can't make heads or tails of what it's saying. The tab crashes in "safe mode" as well. Hopefully someone reading this can help.

Is it possible to keep the History format when exporting to new PC? In old PC, format was Today, Yesterday, Last 7 Days . . . .2019, 2018 . . . When importing History to new PC, there is a different format that starts with: Mozilla Firefox, Recent Bookmarks, Other Bookmarks . . . None of the History is segregated by prior years. Would like to retain the years designation. Hope these 2 images help explain this.

I have the following Javascript code which has been working for over 10 years and still works on Chrome, but does not work on FF 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

```

/************************************************************************

*  timer														        *
*																		*
*  This timer is started whenever the user presses a key in the input	*
*  field and pops if 0.9 second passes without a new keystroke			*

var timer = null;

/************************************************************************

*																		*
*  Input:																*
*		event	if passed, event.keyCode identifies the key pressed		*
*				in older releases of Internet Explorer use window.event	*
************************************************************************/

function onKeyDownName(event) {

   if (timer)

clearTimeout(timer);

   timer	= setTimeout(update, 900);

} // function onKeyDownName

/************************************************************************

*  function update														*
*																		*
*  This method is called when the user stops typing to repopulate		*
*  the selection list based upon the current contents of the Name		*
*  field.  It is also the onchange method for the following fields:	*
*  'birthmin', 'birthmax', 'incMarried', 'includeParents',				*
*  'includeSpouse', and 'Sex', and it is called by the onchange		*
*  method for the field 'treeName'.									*
************************************************************************/

function update() {

   var	form	= document.nameForm;
   if (form)
   {		// form present

var url = "/FamilyTree/getIndivNamesXml.php"; ... code to complete url by appending values of elements from form // invoke script to obtain list of names for selection list HTTP.getXML(url, // see O'Reilly Javascript gotNames, noNames);

// clear out the old selection list while we are waiting var select = form.individ; select.options.length = 0;

// put a dummy entry at the top of the selection, otherwise // selecting the first name does not call onchange var name = '[choose an individual]'; var option = new Option(name, -1, false, false); option.innerHTML = '[choose an individual]'; select.appendChild(option);

   }		// form present
   else
       alert("nominalIndex.js:update: cannot find form");

} // function update ```


When I put alerts into nameOnKeyDown and update I see that nameOnKeyDown is called but update is never called.

You can see the above code in action at https://www.jamescobban.net/FamilyTree/nominalIndex.php?name=allenby,%20a&treename=&lang=en

This code has worked for over 10 years, and still is working today on Chrome, but the timer never pops on Firefox 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux 19.10.

Pressing play on specific YouTube video causes tab to crash repeatedly, then causing every YouTube tab to crash repeatedly (/tmp directory full)

Reproduction steps:

Scenario #1:

1. Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EnZZGGxU-g

2. Press the play button in video iframe

3. See your tab crashing

Scenario #2:

1. Go to https://www.youtube.com/

2. Wait couple of seconds

3. See your tab crashing

Scenario #3:

1. Go to https://www.youtube.com/

2. Click on any video preview

3. See your tab crashing immediately

Scenario #2 follows Scenario #1. Scenario #3 being repeated even after restart.


Description:

Repeats each time I press play button on this video frame on that specific page. Tab crashes after such actions repeated after restoration of a tab, in a new tab, also in another window. After some single tab crashes, now any tab with YouTube that's being loaded crashes automatically after a while (DOM loaded as well as video previews, but after some time close to 1-2 sec tab crashes). Issue repeats in safe mode.


Environment details:

  • Firefox 73.0 mint 1.0
  • Linux Mint 19, Kernel 4.15.0-88, Cinnamon DE
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 960 (driver version 418.87.00)
  • CPU/GPU/RAM/Swap/HDD are looking normal
  • /tmp directory is full!
  • One day I switched media.rdd-process.enabled option in about:config to false ( don't ask why ;) ). Even if I make it true as default, tabs are still crashing
  • Used that version of firefox for some time - worked perfectly. This issue revealed only today on that specific URL


My conjectures:

Conjecture #1: YouTube has broken something today

Conjecture #2: Some time related stuff (date is 28.02.2019 03:00:00 MSK - so by UTC it's 00:00:00 which is strange)

Conjecture #3: This video has a present from Mao with some malicious stuff inside ( still hope my PC won't blow up this morning :P )

Conjecture #4: Temp directory is full and that causes quite heavy YT tabs to crash (maybe, if firefox uses /tmp, idk)


Hope ur debugging gods will be with you. If you need any more info or help on this subject - do not hesitate to contact me.

- A happy user of multiple Mozilla products

I have a Firefox inside Windows 10. The browser crashes suddenly and then Firefox can no longer be opened. Completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox has been tried, but to no avail. Safe mode or Firefox refresh is done but to no avail. I really don't know what happened. I even deleted the old profile and the new one was created automatically. But I am constantly confronted with the message "Mozilla Crash Reporter". Crash ID: bp-8ddf1f68-a4f1-425a-8f91-24a060200215

Having what seems to be a recurring issue throughout Firefox releases. When maximizing a window I get a large white bar blocking the entire header-menu area of the browser. Have attempted cycling the browser through fullscreen with F11 and Dev mode with F12. Have completely restarted the browser in and out of SafeMode with the same issue present. Additionally I can interact with the webpage however I cannot interact with any of the menus in the white bar in fact I actually select the icons on the desktop behind the bar. My computer is setup with one 1080p monitor and one 1440p monitor; this bug only appears on the 1440p screen. Going to restart and see if that solves the issue however I wanted to make a note of this error as it appears to be recurring throughout the past few years. Last detail is I am running Windows 10 and all drivers are up to date. Pictures show the browser in maximized SafeMode and after restoring view the bottom pop-up desktop menu.

Firefox will not start. After double-clicking the icon, the cursor indicates the system is busy, but no icon appears on the taskbar and no window opens on screen. Task Manager shows a Firefox process running (not running before trying to start Firefox). With UAC activated, UAC window opens and asks whether to allow Firefox to make changes to the computer. After choosing Yes, the UAC window keeps opening and asking, over and over. Have reinstalled Firefox. Have tried to start Firefox in Safe Mode (both Shift>double-click and Run command). Have tried to start Profile Manager from Run command (firefox.exe -P and "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P). Neither Firefox nor Profile Manager will open. Found a file in the Profiles folder called Parent.Lock and deleted it, with no apparent effect. Would like to know what might get Firefox to work.

I will give one example of many. In the past, I must have accidentally typed https://mail.wizathon.com. The correct URL is http://mail.wizathon.com. Now when I try to get to the http version, Firefox automatically switches it to https, which fails. To fix this, I have always gone to Options -> Privacy -> Clear Site Settings and poof, the http version would work. I have tried this, I have tried "forgetting the site", I have looked in my profile and the site isn't listed there, I have tried Refreshing my Firefox, I have gone into my about: config and updated the htsc to false. I am out of options. Something happened in the last 2 weeks to cause this unwanted behavior.

Okay, first off, I'm infuriated. I'm infuriated with the stupid obstacle course it took me to even GET here! From the chain of suggestive meaningless support threads to the baffling loading of Thunderbird to even get me a password reset because I forgot the password to yet the millionth damn account I had to make to do one simple thing! Thanks, Firefox, you're making me regret even bothering with you and I've been with you since Day 1! I've had problems with you about the performance of the browser, to now just clogging the internet with garbage like making accounts just to get support!

The main point that started my stress with Firefox, is how I couldn't clear Autofill. I don't want a laundry list of names that are outdated and not in use. I've done everything I thought of, like going to Privacy and Security settings and clearing out the data. I've had CCleaner, clean out the data thoroughly. I've rebooted Firefox a few times and the names are still there! I don't WANT them there!

What have you done?! Why do you feel the need to enforce an arbitrary necessity onto those who prefer to have the options available to them on whether or not to clear such data? Why do you feel the need to make this so trivial? Am I stuck with an autofill form that I can't clear?! Forcing me to have to see a long ass list of things that are outdated/not in use?

This is your idea of IMPROVEMENT? You've lost your touch, Mozilla!!
