I was looking at images in an email, (PDF) and firefox was running 339,600K and froze my system. Is this typical? It just kept happening I waited, however the screen turned gray (with the email showing beneath) and after about 15 min I decided that was long enough and refreshed the browser (or the little circle arrow). Then I was able to begin again, but it kept happening about every third image. Thanks in advance for your advise

usually happens playing videos on facebook or clicking on links to dailykos headlines. I have to turn the computer off entirely bypassing the normal shut down proceedure in order to undo the freezing. When I restart the computer it goes back to the freezing place and gets stuck again. There was a brief flash that said a webpage was causing the problem in yellow at the top of the screen; it lasted about 3 sec and then disappeared. after 3 times of trying the normal shut down after restarting my computer required a rather lengthy disc scan (3 indices) where many files were deleted and restored. I would like to continue using firefox but I am confused about why this is happening. What is my computer doing while freezing if indeed it is a webpage that is causing this to happen. I used malwarebytes anti virus and microsoft security essentials scans regularly and use good internet habits. Is this somehow related to the recent Intel invasion? So I just got a message about an installed plugin, Shockwave Flash 28.0 r0. I guess this means I should deactivate it?

I am running 59.0b13 (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with MacOS 10.13.3

I develop a Shopify app and anytime I try to login to a Shopify stores admin panel. Firefox locks up and spins the CPU all the way up. I then have to force quit.

To replicate go to any Shopify store and add "/admin" to the domain.

When Mozilla support sends a reply to my Hotmail account it contains two links. One is "This doesn't solve my problem" the other is "browse for unsolved questions and help a Firefox User". In the Nightly browser, if I click on either of these the browser freezes. No other tab can be opened; the back arrow cannot be used; the refresh symbol does not work; and Nightly can only be closed from the Task manager. Worse, if it is left open it disables other applications. While the task manager is open, if it is moved, it leaves a trail of repeated copies of itself. If Quicken is closed part of the display remains on the screen. Even using CTL+ALT+DEL to refresh the screen and asking only to open the task manager does not resolve this problem. Am I REALLY part of a Beta test or did you all just skip Alpha and give us anything that looked like it could be called a browser?

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

The search bar on Amazon.com has stopped suggesting items or autocompleting what it thinks I want to search for. I don't know how this happened but I want it to work again. It was very helpful for searching on Amazon.com. It is only not working for Amazon. This autocomplete option still works on Google and Yahoo, just not Amazon. How do I make it work again?

If I am working online and leave for a few hours and then come back and go to open a new tab or even reload an existing tab or go to a new website using an already open tab, the only thing I get is the "spinning circle of death." I then must exit out of FF. Then when I go to reopen FF I get a window that says FF is still open, even though it is not and do I want to shut it down, so I click yes. Then I am able to reopen FF, but always get a message that says my user profile cannot be loaded properly, so I have click on that and reopen a second time. Then it finally opens and I am able to work fairly well until the same problem happens again.

I am really not sure what changed, but I never had this problem, I could leave FF open for days and come back and then open a new tab just fine and begin working again.

My PC runs fine and no issues, Recently upgraded to Widows 10 - no issues. Suddenly (and quite weirdly) I have this fault. I needed to activate new Reason software on Propellerheads.se site. The site loaded and I saw the image for about 2 secs and then the screen went black. The music I was paying continued (so I knew Windows was still running) but the PC was unresponsive - Alt.Tab, Start, Ctrl/Alt/Delete non of these worked. The Sleep button worked but when I woke Windows the screen remained black. Only recourse was a hard reset. So I tried to access Propellerheads.se with Microsoft Edge - it worked fine. So I uninstalled Firefox, made Edge default client and did the activation. Then reinstalled Firefox but still the same problem. I have reset default user agent, deleted all history/cookies etc, refreshed Firefox, run in safe mode, deactivated plugins. Still Propellerheads.se will not load successfully. I don't want to run Edge - my preference is Firefox - BUT!!!

Windows 10 and Firefox were running well on my (old) windows 10 Compaq pc. After uninstalling eset nod32 and installing Sophos it ceases to really start up. In task manager I see Firefox somewhere down below, but it does not complete the startup so I do not see the browser opening. Killing the Firefox instance, reinstalling and restarting it without any add-ons (they were https everywhere, bluehell firewall, CSfire, Click&clean , Privacy Badger) does not do the trick  :-(

Can you help (other than unistalling sophos...) ?

Cheers, Wim
