Multi-account Containers plugin prevents pages from loading

System Information

  • Firefox: version 86.0
  • Hardware: Dell XPS 13 9370
  • OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
  • DE: XFCE
  • CPU: Intel i7-8550U (8) @ 4.000GHz
  • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Multi-account containers: 7.3.0
  • I use Pihole hosted on an RPi.

Problem

For the last few versions, opening Firefox would result in no pages loading. The tabs would keep spinning with no result.

I've disabled plugins to find the cause, and have found that I can't reproduce this issue with no plugins enabled, but can reproduce this issue with only the Firefox Multi-account containers plugin enabled.

This problem also doesn't happen if I delete rm -rf ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/*.default-release before starting Firefox, even with the plugin enabled.

When I have this problem, I can disable the Firefox Multi-account containers plugin to get the tabs to load, and then re-enable it. This implies the plugin is somehow blocking the tabs from loading.

Thank you for taking the time to read this question. Let me know if you would like any more information.

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

New laptop. I believe there are major issues with Windows 10. I've posted them on MS message boards but no one is experiencing them (don't notice? Don't care?). I use Firefox, and while I don't believe Firefox is the problem, I thought I'd post some of them here (the short version).

Links open by themselves without me clicking or tapping on them. When I'm in a Hotmail email or message board compose screen, or a web page with fields to enter personal information, very often when I click to a spot, the screen scrolls up by itself (happens in Chrome too). Sometimes, writing an email, when I click to a spot, the cursor will instead appear a few lines up (not where I clicked). Even if I don't click, the cursor might, all of a sudden, jump somewhere else while I'm typing, or paused typing (even in a Google search field). At times, when I hit the backspace - to remove characters, text - I'm taken back to the previous web page instead. I have seen this complaint when I searched it. But I don't want an Add On that disables the backspace. I just want it to work as it should, not take me back a page.

And no, it's not malware. And I didn't have these issues with my old Windows 8 and 8.1 laptop.

Everytime I go to facebook before I sign in a grey overlay appears on the sign in page and when I scroll down this message appears. I'm getting tired of it. Does anyone know how I can bypass all this and sign straight in like I used to be able to. I also find it strange that I seem to be the only person experiencing this as when I search for similar instances I get nothing. This started about a week ago, I have to press 'accept all' all the time, why can't this be automatic. Thanks for any help.

I am experiencing a problem with drop down menus, on all websites, when using firefox. I had to post this question using the Edge browser, because the mandatory "Which topic best describes your question?" requires opening a drop down menu, which I cannot do with firefox. It has been this way for quite some time now, so I don't use firefox that much anymore. I always keep firefox updated, and I have tried disabling all plugins/addons to see if they were causing the problem. No luck.

Any ideas on how to solve this would be most welcome.

When being prompt for the primary password, I noticed that I can rapidly and endlessly type random combinations and press enter. There seems to never be any delay between wrong entering of passwords. So it seems that even the most primitive application that would try all possible combinations rapidly, will break the password in few hours for the most. This does not even require any knowledge in hacking. Is this correct or am I missing something? If that is the case, then primary password is only worth when keeping the computer unattended for no more than few minutes.

For more than a year, I've been plagued with, "A web page is slowing down your browser."

It appears most often on Facebook and while multiple tabs are loaded, but other websites cause it to happen, as well, even when Facebook isn't loaded at all. The fewest multiple tabs that trigger this behavior is two (2), though it usually rears its head with around seven or more.

It appears whether extensions or plugins are disabled or not.

This never happens with Google Chrome.

I'm using the latest, 64-bit version of Firefox with automatic updates enabled.

This has been happening for more than a year.

Once a page begins to display this, it's done for the day about 80% of the time.

Closing multiple tabs does NOT solve the problem once it occurs.

Closing Firefox entirely (all tabs) does solve the problem, but only for a while.

Choosing Stop It or Wait doesn't seem to solve anything.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, twice.

OS: Windows 10 64-bit Anti-virus: Bitdefender Total Security for the second half of the year; Norton Security for the first half of the year.

I really wish Mozilla would put some effort into actually FIXING this major problem, as I've reached the point where I'm about to ditch Firefox entirely and go back to using Google Chrome. Judging by what I've found in these forums, it's been around since 2017, and none of the tips given therein have worked.

It's almost as if something in a tab other than the current one is occupying an excessive amount of processor cycles, and instead of managing it properly, Firefox gets hung up trying to

Suspicion: Facebook, possibly YouTube (owned by Google) intentionally "exercises" Firefox browsers in the hopes of getting users to drop it and go back to the far less secure Google Chrome.

Thank you for your time.

I just updated to a new laptop, and I'm now having a problem with Firefox. I'll be reading a page, when it will suddenly zoom in - the zoom feature stays at 100%, but I have to scroll across the page to get to the end of lines. I can't figure out how to make it go back to normal - I have to close the tab, then open a new tab and open the URL again on that.

What is causing this? Is it a setting I can change? How do I fix it?

This is the error message that has suddenly started appearing today whenever I attempt to open a site (Google, my email, etc):

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But the same problem remains. I have also run a Kaspersky complete analysis, but it shows that everything is OK - even though it most certainly is not OK. It is as if Microsoft is forcing me to use Microsoft Edge, a browser I don't like. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really like to get Firefox back safe and unharmed.

Hello, I have searched for an answer to this and didn't find one so I am posting. If this has been answered, kindly post the link to the solution :)

The problem is with Firefox screenshots. Full page shots are working fine, but "Save Visible" and custom selections using the outlining tool are scaling at 71% instead of 100%. So, I'm only getting some of what I want.

How do I fix this? I didn't see anything in config about this.

Whenever I visit Tesco website for online shopping the pages get progressively slower to the point where I get a message in a yellow banner which reads words to the effect of: 'A web page is slowing down your computer. What do you want to do?' It then gives the option of clicking on a tab to either 'stop this' or something else which I no longer recall. This message doesn't stay there long and on the times where I have managed to click on the tab 'stop this' it has no effect whatsoever. I looked up this problem by typing something about it into a google search space and came across information which says that it is an apparently known problem with Firefox. I cannot account for the testament of this answer though. I don't know who wrote it. Is this true? Is there anything I, or you, can do about this problem regardless of whether or not this is true? When this happens my computer sounds like it is about to launch itself into space and there is a distinct and lengthy lag between entering information and the website responding. It can take over a minute to move from one action to the next. eg. scrolling the page up to view the next items on the page. I really would be forever grateful if you could identify the problem and come up with a solution for this. Thank you for giving this your attention. Helen Gray.
