It's awful. I switched from Chrome because it's a CPU hog, but FF is absolutely USELESS. NOTHING works. It crashes if there's more than like 5 tabs open. It WILL. NOT. PLAY. YOUTUBE. I have only one extension-- adblock-- and basically any site with blocked ads becomes useless. Convenient... These problems started literally the first day I used it. I've cleared cache etc, safe mode, and made sure the hardware settings were right. Nothing works. Piece of garbage. Good job screwing up a half decent product. It's crap now. Waste of my time.

Hi, I booted up Firefox just a few minutes ago and apparently, it will not load my website: https://windows-club.com/ Whatsoever. I've tried everything from clearing the cache and cookies to the history and even reinstalling it. My extensions seem to be invisible as well, Is there any way I can fix this?

Why does Firefox seem to suddenly hate www.aa.com. When I try to log into the website I get a "Sorry working on our website - please start over" notice. I have tried deleting browsing history and I turned off the ad blocker. Any other suggestions. It works fine on MS Edge.

I have been using the firefox web-browser, and often use the control-f (^F) key to search for a phrase on a given tab.

This works well, but when I type something that isn't on the page (or more likely, mis-type) it makes an annoying "digning" noise and turns red.

Is there any way to silence this behavior? Turning red is good enough for me, the digning is irritating. I'm using the Ubuntu version.

Thanks

The "xulstore" window resizing problem

Since some time, Firefox (currently 89.0) on Windows 10 automatically reduces the window size from "fullscreen" to "maximized" when re-opening it from another program. So… (read more)

Since some time, Firefox (currently 89.0) on Windows 10 automatically reduces the window size from "fullscreen" to "maximized" when re-opening it from another program. So I have to wait until the window size reduction is complete before having to re-enlarge it again (which is quite annoying)

After a short web search, it turned out that this window size reduction is caused by the "xulstore.json" file in the profile folder and several other users are also reporting this issue. However, none of them in the forums I visited knew a permanent solution. I unsuccessfully tried the following:

  • When I delete "xulstore.json", the window size reduction problem goes away only to re-appear after a few re-openings of Firefox (as the xulstore file is re-established then).
  • Editing the xulstore file did not work, as Firefox overwrites it.
  • Denying Firefox writing permission (via Windows) also doesn't work, as Firefox creates a temporary copy of the xulstore file which again causes the resizing problem.
  • Denying access to this temporary copy does not work either.

It seems like Firefox does everything possible just to keep the resizing problem persisting. Is there any permanent solution (different from the failed solution attempts above)? Or even better: could you remove the automatic resizing in a coming version update of Firefox? It seems like I am not the only one who would be grateful about this.

Cursor jumps to toolbar address window instead of staying on the Firefox home page search bar. I prefer to use the search bar, without seeing all the urls show up in a list that changes as I type. This change occurred just a few days ago, apparently when Firefox updated. I have selected Google as the preferred search engine. (there are many other unwanted changes, but this one is the most challenging to deal with)
