Hi! Some days ago I started experiencing problems to load Google service webpages. For example sometimes youtube tells that there is a connection problem, when loading gmail I get " has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired". When I use other browser I can access to that services with no problem. I am in linux, and I have tried disabling all the add-ons, starting in "safe-mode" and rebooting my computer. At the beginning everything works fine, but after some time starts failing. I have tried with different Firefox versions, and the problems persists.

My firefox is slow but not real slow but enough to notice a little bit. It does take a minute to first load. It has crashed but only when I have clicked the close Firefox " Red X"

It really does a crazy thing.  If I have VLC open playing a file, or I am in Firefox on YouTube If I change to new tab or click a link my sound on the Desktop crackles and it's like everything comes to a halt in VLC and Firefox. Or just in Firefox on YT.   I am not sure if this is a hardware issue with my speakers I have already moved the speakers plug to front and no change it still does it.  The speakers are old I bought them way back in 2005.  Do speakers go bad?  I don't know why it is doing this. 

My other issue is cleaning my computer. You see Firefox has over 8,000 bookmarks I have collected since around 2006-2008 or even earlier. I don't know how to remove the ones I don't need anymore. I guess it has well over 250-300 folders and loose bookmarks My guess around 1500+ not in folders. Some folders will scroll a few minutes. I want to removed some folders I don't need anymore and want to know if there is a way to store others in case I need them later I can load them and keep some on Firefox? Many of these book marks are related to research I have done and I can't just trash my bookmarks and start over.

Hi, my Firefox browser will crash about once a day, every several hours, causing me to have to restart my computer. I have followed the tips above to check RAM for errors with none found, tried running Firefox in Troubleshoot mode (it still crashed) and have updated several times to the newest version over the last year, still with crashing. I'm following this message with error codes. Thanks for your help.

To save space on my laptop screen I have turned off the bookmarks bar, and use a dropdown bookmarks menu.

This works fine, except there are four links at the top of the menu that I don't need. It's not a deal breaker, but if possible like to remove them or at least move them to the bottom of the list. Is that possible?

Firefox 89.0.2 has disabled almost all of my addons without any explanation or possibility to re-enable! This includes Antivirus, https everywhere and other addons for security. I can't find any explanation on the web besides the old "signing" issue. Is this a bug or was this done for a reason? If for a reason, why wasn't there any information available beforehand? I get the impression that mozilla is definitely trying to drive users away. I'm actually seriously considering to remove firefox completely from all my devices now.

Does anybody have an explanation or remedy?

I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. Every time I do an internet search, I get an error message:

We're Sorry

Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts.

To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report.

(checked) Tell Mozilla about the crash so they can fix it

Details (button)

(I used to write a note, even giving my phone number asking for help, but after getting no help, I stopped writing details.)

(checked) Include the address of the page I was on

Your crash report will be submitted before you quit or restart.

Restart Firefox (button) Quit Firefox (button)--this is my typical response.

Any help would be appreciated. I am a dinosaur. I can use my PC, but am not very computer savvy.

My computer details: Dell PC Windows 10, version 21H1 LAN with 14.28 GB IP assignment Automatic (DHCP) Link speed (Receive/Transmit) 100/100 Mbps Manufacturer: Intel Description: Intel (R) Ethernet Connection (2) 1219-V Driver version: 12.18.9.10

If you need to know any additional info, please tell me where to find it on the PC. Please be as detailed as possible. I am a rank amateur.

You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of r.smartbrief.com is not available.

This link has worked thousands of time in the past with Secure Connection Mode turned on.

Why is it FAILING now?????????

When I click on the Continue to HTTP Site button, the HTTPS:// link is fully invoked.

Something is wrong with Firefox 89.0.2 running on MacOS 10.14.6 on a MacBook 2017 model.

I've only experienced this on Firefox, but while watching multiple videos/twitch streams, video playback becomes very choppy and laggy. Actually, firefox in its entirety becomes laggy. This is not a problem when using chrome/chromium, and my PC is more than powerful enough to handle this, with a rtx 2060 and an i5-10500. On chrome I've watched 4 streams on twitch at once with no issues, but on Firefox it starts becoming choppy with only 2 open. Anyone know how to fix this? I don't really want to use chrome anymore. I'm currently running Pop! OS 21.04, with Firefox version 89.0.2.

Windows 10, Version 89.02 (64 Bit)

When navigating with back arrow on Youtube (the only website I have confirmed this is a consistent problem) the current page essentially reloads instead and then the back arrow is no longer highlighted and no tab history is available for the page (it disappears). In other words, the back arrow will not take me back and the tab loses history of the previous pages I have been to in that particular tab. Apparently the tab's history has been forgotten by the browser.

At other times, the back arrow works once or twice... but trying to click it a second or 3rd time to navigate farther back time causes the tab history to disappear and the back arrow becomes gray (instead of highlighted white).

I have tested this by quickly clicking links through the Youtube site and then pressing the back arrow and this problem does not always occur, but does occur frequently enough during a browsing session to be quite frustrating. Unsure if this is linked to a recent update in the Browser.
