Win 10laptop had Firefox installed and working. Suddenly stopped after some windows updates. I have Uninstalled several times, both vanilla and using IOBIT program. Deleted the program file folder, and the local apps profile. Won't start in safe mode either. I don't even see anything in task manager when clicking. No error messages.

However.....tried installing developer version and it works fine!

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

As of 16 August Firefox Development Edition continually crashes.

Firefox standard is fine.

Tried the following 1. Shutdown and restart 2. Refresh 3. Uninstall, download and reinstall (4 times) 4. Chkdsk /r with restart then uninstall and reinstall 5. Open in troubleshoot mode 6. Tried incognito window 7. Tried disabling AV (Eset)

No change other than when the crash happens. Initially it would require opening a few tabs and browsing - now it crashes on startup.

Given that no other applications are behaving adversely, that Firefox standard works, that this was working find until 12 hours ago - my suspicion is it is something to do with the Developer edition.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Running Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit) over windows 10 on a Dell Latitude E5440.

At the end of the day, I close Firefox. It takes several minutes for the 8 or so processes that linger in the system to exit. 2 minutes after that, I get the Firefox Crashed pop-up. I always send the crash report.

On restart, Firefox takes 3-5 minutes to load data from contile-images.services.mozilla.com before I can actually use the browser.

This happens daily, whether Firefox is the first or last application closed, or whether I wait several minutes after everything else is closed before I close Firefox.

Are there settings I can change to prevent this?

Thanks,

I was wondering if you were aware of any projects in the computer industry to come up with a new PC O/S since windows has become so unfriendly and autocratic with win 10 & I imagine 11 as well? As you are one of the more important players in the home and business computer world, I figure you folks would know much more than I, and know it way before I do. I do not want to get another windows machine. I had to fight it to get your superior web browser to be and stay the default browser over something called "edge", as an example. Us Boomers have been buying PC's for 40+ years and the software too. Then we choose what we want installed and ignore the rest. And we never heard of buying a program then also paying rent to some overlord. Talking to friends of similar age, this is a huge reason PC sales are falling. Win 10 &11 were such a traumatic shock to us. My wife (age 72) was so angry she went out and purchased Apple notebook, ipad and iphone and gave her windoze junk to the trash man after a thorough scrubbing. At age 72 she undertook learning a new O/S to get away from MSFT. (I try hard not to get her real angry!)

Thank you in advance for any help you may provide. I think quantum computers are a few years out yet, so there is a need.

Hi!

For the past month or so, some youtube clips keeps on loading and do not play.

When I switch to another video, it either plays or keeps loading again. Refreshing the page doesn't help. Clearing data (cookies, site data, and cache) do not help either. The only solution is to close the window which I'd rather not have to do every time. There doesn't seem to be any rule to the types of clips that plays or doesn't. Any ideas?

I'm using windows 10. Firefox is the latest 103.0.2 (64-bit). Thank you!

Since the last update, I have had to zoom page, zoom text repeatedly for every single page I load, and often several times just to use comment boxes and read the pages. Scrollbars are a far bigger problem than they've ever been before. All in all, this update has ruined my browser experience. I'd rather not move to another browser. I'd rather fix Firefox. Is it possible to roll back an update? And is it possible to refuse the next updates crippling my browser?

Recently, I've seen Google searches slow down. At first, I took it as problems at Google. However, when Google started to ask me to verify I am a human more often than not, I decided to investigate the matter.

NetLimiter is showing a HUGE number of connections Firefox is making to the 1e100.net domain. Even with an empty tab open only. Refer to this 1e100.net explainer article to understand what 1e100.net is and does.

Is anyone else seeing this or has something happened to my Firefox 103.0.2 (64bit build)? Bitdefender isn't telling me it has been infected with anything so...

How do I start Firefox in a safe mode? i.e. without extensions enabled. I want to try seeing whether if its one of my addons.

How to troubleshoot time related errors on secure websites

Certificates for secure websites (the address begins with https://) are valid only for a certain period of time. If a website presents a certificate with validity dates that don't match the date on your computer's clock, Firefox can't verify that it is secure and will show you an error page.

Such issues can often be fixed by setting the correct date, time, and time zone on your computer system. If this does not solve the problem, it could be caused by other issues, such as a misconfigured web server or an expired certificate. Table of Contents

   List of time-related error codes you may encounter
   Set your system clock to the correct time
   Contact the website owner

List of time-related error codes you may encounter Note: A Your Computer Clock is Wrong error page almost certainly means that your computer's clock is set to the wrong date. Some time-related errors will show a Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead error page, described in this article. For other time-related errors, you'll get a Secure Connection Failed or Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue error page, described here.

Firefox hangs scrolling the newest models on Printables (https://www.printables.com/model?o=newest). The problems starts occuring several "pages" down the endless list. While scrolling I open interesting models with shift+click. At first opening models starts taking several seconds and some time later I can't scroll further down. Firefox shows a notification: "This page slows down Firefox".

YouTube videos won't start playing (again after opening with shift+click). Sometimes I can get them to start by clicking several points on the timeline and sliding back to the beginning. At first everything is fine, but after several videos the problem starts.

Google Chrome doesn't show this behaviour, but I would rather stay with Firefox.
