Crash after using FUS (Fast User Switch)

A recent upgrade introduced a regression for me: FF crashes as soon as I use FUS to switch to another user account or even to the login screen.

This is on Mac OS X 10.9.5 (old but stable and I need to stick to it until further notice), I have an external screen which is also the main screen (has the menubar).

I haven't yet figured out how to get access to the stack backtraces (before or after submitting) but it looks like FF is trying to access some resource that gets invalidated when FUS triggers. It's the only application I've ever seen that cannot survive a FUS trip...

Can anyone reproduce this?

I've been having a lot of crashes lately with Firefox Developer edition, most notably on pages with interactive elements, animation, and videos. I've tried refreshing Firefox, disabling all add-ons, updating Firefox, updating Windows, updating my graphics drivers, and running Firefox in safe mode. Below are some of the crash reports I've sent in the past week.

I'm having the same problem as this old support question. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/814083

Issue is that the answer seems outdated and when I search in the forums and MDN, if feel like I'm entering a rabbit hole.

Basically, I have Kubuntu 16.10 and Fire Fox 51.0a2 (2016-11-14) (64-bit). The KDE system theme is a dark one. Now what happens is that all my text boxes, in FF, are also dark. This makes it very hard to input text as most of the time the text is black or grey.

I looked into adding a userContent.css file in the chrome directory of my profile. Folder is not there, so I created it and the css file: input, textarea, select {

  color:#555 !important;
  background-color:#fff !important;
  -moz-appearance: none !important;

}

Found a chrome folder under /usr/lib/firefox/browser and copied the css file there. None of these did anything even after closing and reopening FF.

I do have "Use system colors" unchecked under Color Preferences...

With FF not running, I'll be using my computer and FF will open to an empty page... and maybe 30 seconds later it will close. This happens at random times. I've looked through Sync & Auto Update settings and do not see any controls established by FF that would allow it to run autonomously. Any ideas?

When I am watching a YouTube video, Firefox Developer Edition freezes, then when I close the window, Windows says plugin-container.exe: A Breakpoint has been reached. This also happens when I right click a flash player video.

I've tried toggling "dom.ipc.plugins.flash.disable-protected-mode", reinstalling Flash, and reinstalling Firefox Developer Edition.

This also happens on normal Firefox as well.

I have seen 64bit spinoffs, clones, modified copies, and everything else, but no official Firefox 64 builds. Are there any, or any plans for one? I'm kinda surprised that it's so hard to find one, if there is, considering that almost all devices are 64 now.

I have another simple questions.

1. I have download the version and its working (thanks for passing through the link in my previous question). Its working fine but it's keep showing a notification to update the Edition, and I did and restarted the browser and it's still asking, and the version is always the same. Is this a bug or is it actually Firefox team keep making updates?

2. Downloaded the extension of Livereload and its asking to update it, and it is already a updated version. Is there a good solution to get away with this?

Thanks

“FirefoxDeveloperEdition” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.

Restarting the computer won't help. Not sure what I can do, I have downloaded the program multiple times.

Firefox Dev Edition, it randomly closes windows. I typically have up to 3 windows open at a time with anywhere from 3 to 8 tabs open on each, so idk if it's a memory problem and I'm just too demanding? In Chrome, when a window is closed, you can go to "recently closed tabs" and the entirety of that window's tabs are grouped into one entry, so in one click all tabs from that closed window are brought back. It's more like "recently closed tabs & windows". But firefox doesn't have this implemented so I then have to repeatedly open a new tab, open from history, repeat. I'm sure I put too much load on my browsers, but Chrome doesn't do this and I would hope that Firefox would be as much of a work horse as Chrome has been for me in all the years I've been using it. I can retrieve any logs or provide more information to anybody if it helps.

Summary: While browsing with multiple windows of FF:D up, one will randomly close. I actually recall this happening while I had my laptop closed and not in use. The window just closes out and it cannot be restored in any way other than opening each individual tab in history.

I'm using Firefox Developer Edition, along with a simply AMAZING add-on called Fastest Search (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fastest-search/versions/).

Yesterday, Fastest Search worked perfectly, but today, the icon has disappeared and none of the functionality is present. There was a hotfix released this morning that I can almost guarantee broke the add-on. This hotfix also changed my default search engine from Google to Yahoo, because Mozilla is mad at Google, like a screaming little crybaby. So, I went to my preferences and changed my default search engine back to Google, and, out of spite, removed Yahoo from the list of optional search engines. >:\

Does anyone else use Fastest Search? Is there a way to roll back to before the hotfix? I really hate using Firefox without Fastest Search. :(

Thanks!

I use Gentoo Linux under KDE desktop with alsa for sound on a laptop. Sound works ok. However, when I start Firefox, specifically Aurora 33.0, the latest version in Gentoo, the default open page has a nice video - the Choose Independent Choose Firefox video. I can play it, and it plays fine, but there is no sound.

I can download this as a file called fe0d3698-5a38-40e9-bdbe-8a3d7a4d07d9.webm and play it fine (in Dragon Player)

I can play it fine when I go to the Mozilla.org site, and it comes up before the main site home page can be seen. I've tried other WebM videos, with no issues. Flash sound works fine, e.g. in YouTube.

This is not a major issue - it's just odd!
