Hello,

I deployed central management of firefox yesterday and I am suffering firefox hangs on startup (prior to opening any window) after configuration change from pref to localPref. When I kill firefox and run again it usually start normally. Usually one kill is sufficient, but I observed also two subsequent kills are necessary.

I created these files:

/usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/pref/autoconfig.js:

pref("general.config.filename", "firefox.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox.cfg:

// This comment is mandatory lockPref("autoadmin.global_config_url","http://www/firefox/firefox.cfg"); lockPref("autoadmin.append_emailaddr",false);

and in the firefox.cfg on a website I have for example: lockPref("network.proxy.type", 4);

when I change the lockPref to pref in this file, everything works normally, but when I change it back to lockPref I get a firefox hang on startup. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Whenever I have Firefox open with certain games, the browser randomly freezes and ultimately crashes. But especially when I have videos running. The game itself does not crash and runs completely fine with no issues.

I have no idea what causes it, and I used to not have this issue at all before. However, I believe it was after I upgraded my computer, which should have no issues with the specs I have.

These are my 10 most recent crash reports: bp-c0eafb4b-6fce-47fa-9e8d-3f9e30240707 bp-dc43a38b-a3df-4231-9e02-ff55c0240707 bp-30bc891a-062d-4f9d-805d-539a20240707 bp-8dda914d-f2f8-4534-83d6-2ac690240707 bp-1858f133-89be-41e0-85e0-501a70240707 bp-e785dd9b-328b-4aec-bff0-002fe0240707 bp-3e7288ac-6d1e-4567-9e95-1a4830240707 bp-2777d574-893b-4e10-a69e-245f90240707 bp-62934e0d-9568-4deb-9354-e7e910240707 bp-2ab1d2bb-d244-4118-a7e1-9d32e0240707

For some months now I have been finding that, when I try to log on to the BBC website or the Youtube website using my default browser Firefox I get a timed out message. However, both websites usually open when I try for the second time. This never happened before. For both sites I log on from Windows 10 desktop icons. This defect is now annoying me so much I am inclined to switch to Chrome or Microsoft Edge as default browsers where the problems do not occur. I have tried a number of suggested solutions shown on line but nothing has worked to date. Before I switch default browser I will try further suggested solutions if anyone has any.

this only seams to occur on YouTube as amazon prime and speed test works without issues

1) Youtube stalls out. Seems to be preventing or blocking the front ad from running, ... but wait long enough, Youtube video will play. This happens on all my computers, Win 7 and Win 10. Problem been going on the last 30 days.

2) In Win 10, Firefox browser never shuts down when I close it. Must go into Task Manager & do a "End Process" to kill it. I do make sure Microsoft Edge Browser is Disable. It wants to run all the time too. Thanks for your efforts. Been using Firefox since 2002.  :)

I have four browsers on my Linux box: Chrome, Chromium, Thorium, and Firefox.

Firefox is painfully slow using Google Earth, all the others are fast with Google Earth.

This is fairly recent behavior (last month or so).

As far as I can tell, FF is configured to allow Web Assembly (WASM) to be used for rendering images, etc. Since Google Earth is written in WASM, I don't have a clue why it is so horribly slow.

scrolling/sliding the image around on the screen is slow and jumpy. Displaying images attached to a waypoint is extremely slow: It takes 5-10 seconds to switch from one image to the next.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Hello,

When I open Firefox, it seems like it does not does anything, but then it starts playing a music I was hearing in youtube earlier (like it seems to me that the window is opened somewhere outside of my screen??

If I click a second time in Firefox, then it opens a normal window in my screen as usual, but the other one keeps playing in the back.

I've tried changing screen resolutions, checked that no other monitors were detected, restarted computer,

Not sure what to do next!

Thanks!

Firefox will not run on my desktop as it says its already running. I have uninstalled Firefox & reinstalled it with a fresh copy from the web but the problem persists. I open Task Manager & see Mozilla Firefox appears to be running: "Mozilla Firefox (3)". I end task which stops Firefox opening further but the same thing happens again when I try to open Firefox.

My PC is running Windows 11 fully updated as at today.

Can anyone suggest a fix?

Please help me.

I made no changes to Firefox. It just stopped working. If I click on the icon I get a momentary hour glass, the hour glass goes away, and Firefox never comes up.

If I try to open it as administrator, it comes up but will not accept any web addresses. I can type in a web address but is doesn't go to the site. The screen just stares at me and does nothing.

Both Edge and Chrome work just fine. I have used Firefox for many years. I love it but has just stopped working. I have reinstalled it several times and the same problem occurs.

I installed Firefox on a Macbook Pro with Apple Silicon, M3. The installation was from the Firefox site, I downloaded the dmg and then dragged into Applications.

I find that playback of media stutters, and is choppy--not sure of a better way to explain it. E.g., YouTube videos and the Bandcamp player have "stuttered sound". Opening another site in another tab can make this effect worse. Likewise, trying to run Google Meet in a browser window causes basically everything on the computer to become very slow.

This still happens even if I go to "about:profiles" and then "restart with add-ons disabled".

But if I switch to another browser, Safari or Chrome, then I don't have the issue. e.g. I can play YouTube in the background fine even when running some compute intensive task.

I have also tried turning on/off "performance settings" and the "use hardware acceleration" checkbox underneath it -- neither of those seem to have any effect.

Activity Monitor showed that at most Firefox was using ~4 GB of memory of a total 48 GB, and the memory pressure indicator seems to be quite low.

I have run Firefox on other systems (e.g. System76, older Macbook Pro) with multiple windows open each having 20-30 tabs and never had an issue like this.

It really seems like it has something to do with how Firefox is interacting with the M3? Happy to learn I'm wrong. And happy to provide more details about the hardware or my settings if it would help.

My issues:

1) Every time I close Firefox I get the Mozilla Crash Reporter telling me that Firefox has crashed. Sometimes I even get the Mozilla Crash Reporter when I start Firefox. But Firefox is still there.

2) When I turnoff my Comodo Firewall, Firefox has no Internet connection.

I have done clean uninstalls/reinstalls over and over. I go thru and adjust settings. My other browsers work fine, including WaterFox, WaterFox Classic, and Vivaldi.

I tried turning off my security software to test. Specifically exiting Comodo Firewall seems to have caused Firefox to not have an Internet connection. All other browsers have Internet access except Firefox. And the Crash Reporter cannot "report" when the Firefox Internet connection does not work, though I did have it report many times when the connection DID work.

One other clue: In Task Manager I see that even though I have closed Firefox, there over 20 instances of it still running. When I try to open it again, I get the "Firefox already running" error message. When I try to kill these instances/processes many will not close.

This problem has been persistent for more than half a year since I built my new PC. I am on Windows 10 LTSC. Besides Comodo Firewall, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is my main anti-malware.

Please help! Thank you!

I am running Mac Big Sur, 11.7.10. When I am in Firefox version 127.0.2 and I go into any Google search, the tab crashes. It works in private browsing mode and also in other browsers but not in non-private browsing in Firefox. I have tried disabling extensions, add ons, etc. Nothing seems to help. This started happening a few weeks ago with any YouTube page also. How can I fix this? If I can't I will stop using Firefox as I cannot function like this. Please advise!

I've been using Firefox for about six months. I'm a MacBook user with the most recent version of Sonoma installed. After a month or so of using Firefox it starts crashing and freezing. Sometimes I can't restart it for several minutes. Whenever this happens, I refresh it. I've refreshed it about twice. I've re-installed it twice too, but it keeps happening. Most settings are default, but I wanted to include the settings in case this could be the problem: - I've turned off Firefox home content - I've turned off all passwords and autofill features - Never Remember History - Do Not Track and Tell Websites not to share/sell my data are turned on - I left the standard-level security settings as is

I have one extension installed.

The only other browser I have installed is Safari and I am not having these issues. I should add that I don't receive any error messages when this happens, it just freezes. The most recent issue is that I was clicking on buttons on a website and it wasn't working, but when I started using the Safari browser (which also set to private mode) it worked fine.

When it works I love Firefox and would like to keep using it. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this.
