Mac OS X, 10.15.7. Macbook Air 2012. Firefox version 81.

After starting Firefox, I'm taken to a blank page (my default new tab is about:home.) If I type in an address and hit Enter, nothing happens. When I hit enter again, it finally starts to browse. This happens every time I start Firefox fresh. If I hit CMD+Q then start Firefox again, and type in an address, and hit Enter, it does nothing. Not until I try again does it work.

Hey, this just recently started happening but whenever I try to playback video (mainly on twitch) the tab crashes immediately.

I've tried starting Firefox in safemode and disabling add-ons; crashing still occurs either way. I tried opening streams on Chrome and they open up fine. I have also tried clearing my cache and disabling hardware acceleration. Lastly, I have also ran windows DISM and sfc.

Also, youtube videos work fine but I can't watch twitch streams.

Here are my crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/78bc74ac-8f7c-4ced-938e-5c7b60201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/9a8a8819-2a42-4600-aeae-78c430201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/80d64d3b-d525-49b9-877c-17ba70201020 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/72b02da3-cf5a-46a2-b024-a587d0201020

Every time I open Firefox it acts like it's my first time. It asks me to log in, forgets any bookmarks I created, forgets the home page I set...everything. This computer is less than a month old; the first thing I did with it was add Firefox. But if it can't remember anything, I'll be forced to switch to Chrome. Can anybody help me?

Having a problem getting Firefox to open. When you try to click on it it looks like it wants to open, but the homepage is blank. When I try to log in the page stays blank. I can see the menu bar but none of the choices will open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, each time removing any and all Firefox folders. Still will not open. Followed the steps for a clean install, no change. The last time I was downloading Firefox I received my first error message: c:\windows\system32\msvcp140.dll error message I get no other error messages, the home page stays blank. Any suggestions on what to try?

I have 4 tabs on my home page. 2 of them open normally, 2 do not. If I click on the address bar of one of the tabs that does not load, a list of recent URLs drops down, with the URL of the tab on top. At the end of the URL, is the work "Visit". If I click on Visit, the URL loads. The other 2 tabs load normally. I am on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Firefox version. I believe this just started to happen after I upgraded. I have tried to use the troubleshoot Restart with add-ons disabled. Did not solve the problem.

A website I use with Firefox is very, very slow, although it was fast in the past. When I try it on my wife's computer the website is fast, yet my computer is newer and better than hers, so there is some kind of problem in my computer. The website is www.statcan.gc.ca. I can access Twitter and numerous other websites on my computer with no problems, but this one is deathly slow. Trouble is...I use it all the time.

I am running macOS Catalina Ver 10.15.7 on a Mac Pro. I removed Adobe Flash, emptied the cache, history, cookies, reinstalled Firefox and rebooted my computer. Did not help. The statcan website worked fine for years and now it is deathly slow, apparently for me only. Other sites are normal speed. I am puzzled. Any suggestions appreciated.

It used to be that downloading something like a pdf and then clicking on it through the downloads dropdown would immediately open the pdf in the default system pdf viewer. Now I get a pop-up telling me the Portal "Open with" is ready which then presents me with a set of options for where to open the file. I have looked around for anyone else with this problem but haven't found anyone.

Additional info: If I use the show enclosing folder feature it actually shows me a temp folder (image attached)

I had to restore my hard drive and lost the icon short cut to one of my email accounts. I tried creating a new short cut following Firefox Help; however, the instructions are inaccurate or out of date. There is no "icon on the left of the address bar". Alternatively I discovered that I could drag another part of the email display and create an icon for the email service but it is created as an Edge Chromium (damn Microsoft!) which was just installed via a Microsoft update. From my research I discovered that Microsoft has so embedded Edge Chromium that removing it runs the risk of making the OS unstable. My question: is there a way were I can create an icon for my email service that will launch in Firefox and not Edge Chromium?
