The rendering issue is not seen with Chromium (Linux) or Safari (Mac). I have no alternative for Solaris :-(

I have read the tips etc, reset everything, but there is no difference.

This has been happening for a a couple of years, getting progressively worse, It has got so bad, I have stopped using FF on all but Solaris now. (and I have been using it for a long long time).

I need someone to direct me to what information/data is needed to be collected so someone can comment. Do you have any favourite page load test web sites that I can send out put to you from?

I have been checking all the help threads and I never did see an answer that works. I set my homepage to be msn.com and now it won't come up at all. I've cleared cached, history and everything else. I've done malware searches via various programs, including Malwarebytes and nothing comes up. I tried reloading the page as my home page using the suggestion of dragging it to the home icon as well as setting it in 'settings'. I even reloaded the firefox program. I looked at about:config as suggested. I couldn't figure out where to right-click to reset it as suggested, however I did do screen shot of the current settings and nothing stands out to me. I don't seem to be having this home page problem and, as mentioned, I haven't seen an effective fix for the problem except to use Chrome as an alternative.

Do you have a fix that I missed?

Hello,

Since about 3 weeks, Firefox hang on certain websites while trying to load them, when un-ticking all "Firefox Home Content" items. When those things are ticked, everything is fine. Wasn't happening before. Often a gray geared wheel appear and at other times only the "tab text" appear, please see the attached screen shot. I'm able to click on "File Edit View...", the items present on the bookmark toolbar, "Refresh", "Home" but the action is executed only when Firefox un-hang. I'd already get a look at Firefox help tutorials but there was nothing about "The "Firefox Home Content" can cause Firefox to hang".

It take me about 10 minutes to load this current page. "Firefox Home Content" are not ticked right now.

Thanks,

Guillaume

Firefox browser will not open. The FF icon is located in my taskbar (Windows 10). When I rest the mouse on this icon I see a very small representation of a website. When I click on the icon I see flash of some sorts on the desktop for about a nano second but the browser will not open.

I uninstalled FF and reinstalled. FF would open OK and I had no problems opening various websites. However, after I closed FF and attempted to open it up again it would not and so I am back to the original problem.

As I needed to access a website, I attempted to open Microsoft Edge and experienced the exact same problem. With the Microsoft Edge browser icon in the taskbar I can see a very small representation of a webpage but this browser will not open either.

Any assistance you can give me will be much appreciated, Con Van Dyk

If you visit a website frequently and want to wipe delete a website from your historical record, Firefox blocks on the UI thread to do this.

In my experience, depending on how often the site is visited, the single thread on a processor can be pegged for many minutes, consuming gigabytes of memory.

If this is not a bug, then it is a very poor user experience. I was only able to resume after terminating the application in Task Manager.

I'm not sure if this is the cause but a few days after windows update my firefox crashes. I restart it and only screen opens and doesn't respond. Deleted Firefox, did fresh install. Firefox starts again but as soon as I log in my account, crashes again. Delete firefox and again fresh install. I don't login, I save 3 bookmarks and it crashes again. Delete firefox again and fresh install. But now firefox starts in the background (seen in task manager) but does not open a window. Download latest installer and try to install but now install says, "something went wrong" during the download. (could be the enterprise network here) this I tried a few times but no success.

So I download Firefox 101.0.1 ISO and install. But again running in background and no window.

Hello, I should start by saying that I'm a technophobe so I admit I'm not very good at explaining my problem or understanding how to deal with it. A couple of weeks ago my tabs began crashing regularly. After researching online, I've refreshed Firefox, done a clean re-install, emptied the cache, disabled add-ons, tried safe mode and turned off hardware acceleration. None have made any difference. I'm up-to-date with Firefox and am using Windows 10. When I switch to Microsoft Edge I don't get any problems at all. I take this to mean that it's not a problem with my PC which has all the latest updates installed. I there anything else I can try? I'm not keen on Edge and would prefer to stick with Firefox. Incidentally, this tab has crashed twice whilst I was typing this message. Thank you.

Never had this before. I opened firefox this morning and restored the old tabs as I usually do every morning. They all opened up (e.f. tab with the correct title) but the address is empty and nothing loads.

Attempted in order: - open a new tab, would not even load google, simply a white page - same action on new window, same result - refreshed firefox= nothing - uninstalled firefox = no luck - removed the apps I installed in the last days (visual studio code) - installed firefox from scratch (no account sync) 82.0 (64-bit) nothing at all. Same result see image in attachment.

I also have: removed all cookies/cache (refresh would do any ways), scanned my computer for viruses (nothing found). It doesn't open the options from the menu, it doesn't show anything under about:config

I was trying to change my password for yahoo and was repeatedly hitting a misdirected msg. I did a normal shutdown but when I rebooted all the pages came up with a single empty page.

I'm afraid to shut down now for fear of losing the prior session information. When I look for the json files I only see ones dated from April of 2021 or earlier. None of the recovery selections are showing in 3button history or the history tab. Not sure how to get back the most recent history and how to boot with it.

I have included the troublshooting info as images as I'm currently using chrome for this session. Thanks for any assistance you can give.

I'm using Firefox Portable. For some reason, in text fields, firefox will randomly "paste" (for lack of a better term) the localhost into a text field and act like it's pressed enter. It can occur when I'm changing tabs, typing, and occasionally when I'm doing nothing at all.

Is there any way to stop this? I've updated the software and tried reinstalling. I don't have any extensions or anything added to the base install. It happens randomly, but more and more frequently. These are new Windows 10 computers (mostly Panasonic FZ-55s, some Dell Toughbook models), and I can't find anything on them that would be causing this issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since the upgrade to version 93 many times Firefox freezes (blue circle moving on screen) and the complete screen is filled with the browser in such a way that the Windows tray is not visible. This is particularly being done when several pages are open in the browser simultaneously. Sometime after this freeze the browser closes itself without any notice. This is rather annoying when I am in the middle of a work.

Here are the details of my OS: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/DkNG2o5X

Please find attached a picture what can be seen when the above freeze happens.

In my "saved addresses" list under the Privacy and Security section of Firefox Settings, there are two addresses of people that have never used my computer. One formerly went to my school, and the other is a stranger. I can think of no way that they could have had access to my account at any time. Are there any other possible explanations for this?
