Firefox is saying there is an inline script (seen in first attached image) which for one is not inline, and secondly starts in the middle of a seemingly arbitrary variable (seen in the third image).

Chrome is able to accept this script, and has no such error (seen in the second image).

I'm quite sure this is not normal behavior, and I want to make sure my site is fully compatible with Firefox.

FIREFOX 75 UPDATE: How to change internet address bar dropdown to display most visited sites?

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update?… (read more)

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update? I only see 6 results when I had it set to about 20 before.

I have gone to browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and changed that setting to False thinking that would help but all that has done is eliminated the entire drop-down list altogether when the address bar is clicked.

I checked my browsing privacy options in the settings menu within Firefox and it appears everything remains exactly as before, prior to update. Maybe there is some special combo of settings and about:config options that can bring the drop-down menu back that I enjoyed so much prior to update version 75.

Any recommendations?

With the new Firefox update Roblox has stopped launching correctly. When I click on a game I want to play in the Roblox website, and pop-up shows up asking where I want to launch the game link. I go into my application, select Roblox, then click open link in this application. The problem is that instead of launching the game in Roblox, it just opens the Roblox website in a new tab. This problem is specific to Firefox, Chrome and Safari work just fine.

Firefox 78.0.1 does not remove closed pages from memory - lags and high RAM usage

After updating from 77 (I think it was 77.0.2?) to 78.0.1 I started noticing terrible firefox performance after a few minutes of browsing. My standard browsing habit consists of launching browser with 1 pinned tab and 1 home page (so 2 tabs only), then opening 5-10 tabs from my bookmarks, checking pages then closing them and leaving only 1 pinned page open. In firefox 78.0.1 after doing this (opening and then closing multiple tabs "to the right" using new context menu added in 78) my ram usage does not drop. It goes from 2.4GB (system only usage) to 5.0GB and does not drop after closing tabs. However when I open 10-20 tabs again RAM usage does not rise (maybe slightly, like 5.3GB). So it looks like firefox has multiple tabs stored in ram and opening new tabs just rewrites that memory instead of allocating new one. I have 8GB of ram so 3GB of usage from 1 open tab is crazy. I think it was 500-900MB before. I also have terrible lags because of this - browser hangs up every few seconds for few seconds. I had trouble writing this post with 2 tabs open because of 3.3GB ram usage! Restarting browser helps - ram uasge rises from 2.4GB to 3.2GB only (800MB for 2 tabs) but every new opened and closed tab seems to stay in memory. For example if I open 10 more tabs except for 2 that always open so I have 12 tabs I have 3.6GB memory usage. After I close them it slowly drops to 3.5GB instead of returning to 3.2GB. It does not matter how I close tabs - using right click context menu (close other tabs, close tabs to the right), using X on tabs, or using add-on to close all tabs except for pinned ones. They always remain in memory somehow. PLS fix this ASAP.

P.S. I also tried checking about:performance menu but there is nothing interesting here. It says that 2 opened tabs and addons use 100MB of memory which is not true because browser at this moment uses 1060MB.

Update 1: I also tested safe mode. 3,4GB of PC RAM usage on firefox safe mode start. Opened few tabs, ram usage goes to 4.2GB. After closing all tabs except for 1 ram usage start to SLOWLY decrease but it stops at 3,7GB. Ram usage drop was really slow like 10-30 seconds. It should be instant after closing tabs.

I've run into a strange issue lately - certain sites are left unable to sign in. I've tried disabling add-ons, clearing cache, cookies, history, lowering my security settings, adding site exclusions, disabling VPN, refreshing firefox, uninstall/reinstall, uninstall/clear data/reinstall/refresh firefox, everything. Still, nothing.

One site in particular is Dropbox. I enter my creds, it asks for my authenticator, error. So I tried in another browser and it works fine. So it's definitely a firefox issue.

I did disable my authenticator temporarily, and was able to sign in on Firefox. However the moment I re-enabled it, I'm no longer able to sign in again.

I have a few other sites that won't sign in either. Some give errors, some accept my password then refresh to the non-signed in page.

I'm at a loss. I've tried everything I can think of. And confirmed all sites work in other browsers.

Middle-click to open in new tab is wildly inconsistent, even on the same link on the same site in the same session. I'd say it works about 10% of the time after the recent 78.0.1 update. I verified my mouse's middle-click operation at https://www.onlinemictest.com/mouse-test/, so I know the middle-clicks are registering and the problem is with Firefox.

I bought a new computer. I read about how to transfer over your profile. On my old computer I located the folder, and went up one level as it said. I had 2 files there, not 1 .I saved these files. I installed firefox on my new computer and followed the same steps to locate the folder. It also had 2 files, with different names. I STUPIDLY deleted these two files and put in the two I had copied from my old compter. Turned offirefox and turned it back on. It would notopen because it said it couldnot locate my profile folder. I uninstalled Firefox, and reinstalled it. I still get the same error.

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I thought uninstalling and reinstalling it would solve the first part of the program but as of now, I have no Firefox.

Any suggestions from anyone.

When I select "Show your Bookmarks (Crtl+Shift+H)" buy just clicking the icon, the main bookmark menu opens. I can move the cursor down the list. But if I try to use the scroll wheel, as soon as the wheel moves, the bookmark menu list closes (disappears).

I like the small size of this particular mouse since this is my travel laptop.

I have tried all the Logitech SetPoint software mouse option with no luck.

Is there any appropriate about:config option that would affect the bookmark menu list?

Thanks

After updating from 77 to 78.0.1, I've experienced a large number of tab crashes ("Gah. Your tab just crashed.") across multiple sites. No crash logs are available in about:crashes. I've tried:

  • Starting in safe mode
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • disabling security software (Webroot SecureAnywhere)
  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Making sure latest drivers and Windows updates are installed
  • Run Windows system file checker tool (no errors found)

I use Firefox with screen reading software, so it is possible the issue may be accessibility related. I've tested with JAWS and Windows Narrator and experience the tab crashes under both.

The mobile view on facebook selling page is absolutely terrible and not user friendly. I have cleared my firefox cache, I have cleared all logins and autofill items. At one time when I right clicked the page and the view page info came up, it said android. now it does not anymore. I have tried everything I could think of to change the page back to PC view. I am not on the m.facebook.com page, either. It seems that all the other pages are normal, this just pertains to facebook.
