After updating to Firefox 86 it always crashes at launch:

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 14439 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

And Crash Report dialog appears. This is the "Details" dialog content:

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

Hello, Firefox takes more than 30 seconds to load. Thunderbird is also slow. I've had this problem before at the end of last year. After a while it got better. But now I have to wait again. I scanned windows with various anti-virus and anti-malware programs. I have absolutely nothing. I only use Microsoft anti-virus. I have run many repair options on the net. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. This long wait to load before I can use the software is really irritating. Internet Explorer starts within 3 to 5 seconds including the display of the first page. Best regards Otto Haldi

When you are presented with a text field, sometimes when you type, a small list of words you entered previously will drop down. You can then select one of those previous words, or continue with what you were originally typing. This is the Autofill feature for Firefox.

Lately, it has been a pain. After an hour or so of use, the instant I click on a text field to type something (usually for searching), the autofill box would partially drop down, only for Firefox to completely hang up. Once you recover from the initial crash, the autofill bug would not appear until at least an hour later. I tried turning off Autofill, but it cost me access to my History, so I was forced to do a complete browser reset. This issue has been with me for about a couple of weeks, and I have no idea why it's doing this.

Hello, and thanks for taking time to read my question.

Firefox appears to be very privacy-focused. It is the impression from the first time you visit their website, and the person-before-profit mentality seems to be well baked into the mozilla foundation and the company around it. However, in the 'Firefox Privacy Notice' that you are required to accept to create an account, it says that the users' email-address is sent to 'Salesforce', an independent company. Salesforce is, as I have understood, a marketing company or 'Customer relationship management', as they choose to call it.

What exactly is Salesforce and how do it affect me and other Firefox users?

My Firefox browser seems to have reset itself to Windows 8 compatibility. I have Windows 10, 64-bit. Firefox will not open full screen, but opens a tiny, narrow window at the bottom of the screen which I have to use task manager to close. I remember one of the automatic updates coming through a few days ago.

Can I do anything other than uninstalling and a new install? I'd like to keep my favorites list, etc. I am at the extent of my computer skills with this.

Since somewhere last autumn, when I download any file from any website, the browser vanishes without any warning on the moment I navigate to the destination folder.

I maintain 2 websites (Joomla), and last week both required uploading a few files in Phoca Download to make them available to members. Now also on this upload the browser was completely gone when I navigated to the folder where I kept the fles.

Ever since Firefox updated to version 85, I have been unable to stream anything. Netflix tells me I need to install Microsoft's Media Feature pack. Nope! I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (NOT the "N" version) so I have Windows Media Player installed already. I also cannot stream SiriusXM stations, Apple TV+, Spotify, CNN videos.....basically anything that involves streaming. YouTube videos still work however.

It's definitely a problem with the Firefox browser because all the above streaming sites work just fine under a different browser (Chrome). I have cleared the cache, I have started Firefox in Safe Mode, I have unchecked hardware acceleration.....NOTHING works!

Help please! I really don't want to refresh Firefox and lose all my settings.
