Firefox crashing when rendering maps

For the past two weeks, I've noticed that embedded maps make my browser immediately crash. I initially thought it was a Firefox problem, but I have been having a similar issue with Safari. This does NOT happen on my iPhone using the same two browsers. This also does not seem to effect Google Maps or embedded Google Maps, but embedded maps from other services. Anyway, I'm posting here because Firefox conveniently provides crash data, I'm not sure what else the cause could be and I'm hoping someone can help.

Two websites this has been consistently happening with are The Empire State Trail bike path (https://empiretrail.ny.gov/) and a NYC vaccine finder website (https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/). Firefox immediately crashes, though with the EST website it seems to be tied to the pathway of the trail being drawn (crashing after I've zoomed in a few times and the path has to regenerate). Safari doesn't totally crash, but forces a site reload and after it fails a second time says it can't display the site.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I'm on the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7), Firefox and Safari and seem to have all security updates for all.

Here's a link to the latest crash data: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/1389c870-51cf-4790-b0a0-fd01f0211202

Very suddenly, I cannot buy groceries through Instacart with SNAP. Everyone wants me to use some other browser, but I really don't want to do that.

I'm using macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina) and Firefox for Mac 94.0.2 .

Whenever I go through the regular checkout process, when I click on "Place Order," I get the attached error message.

I cannot tell you how many times I've readded that number; I can't have been wrong on all of them. Yes, there's enough money on the card. I've tried (suggestion of their "support theater" people) deleting the card, logging out of Instacart, quitting Firefox, restarting Firefox (which I did twice to be sure), and adding the EBT number back in.

I even tried my sister's number, to see if it would go through. Same result.

Once I saw a brief flash of something like "Connect to EBT" before getting the error message, but only once.

I have ordered groceries through Firefox for Mac with SNAP on this computer before. Both SNAP and Instacart deny responsibility and tell me to use Safari (which I loathe).

Does anyone have any ideas? If it works in Safari, what's different about Firefox that's stopping it?

Please, grocery delivery is not a luxury for my sister and me. We literally (I was a copyeditor, so I do mean literally) cannot get to the store ourselves. I absolutely must be able to place SNAP orders via Instacart.

Thank you.

Hello. I used to have a Firefox account a few years ago using the email ... @globo.com and a secondary email ... @gmail.com. Now I excluded my globo.com email account and I can't use or create an account with the gmail one. I made a new account using my live email account as primary but still can't use the gmail one as secondary because it says it already activated in another account. Would be possible to delete the globo.com account then I'll be able to add my gmail account as secondary then turn it primary?

Thanks in advance.

Hey, All of the saved logins and passwords are gone while the bookmarks remain.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

I was downloading a 3 GB file from Mega. Unfortunately this Mega file hosting web site downloads the file into a temporary location through the browser instead of downloading it like a normal download.

Anyways, while I was downloading, at 54% the download got interrupted saying transfer quota exceeded and I need to wait 4 hours to continue download again. and my girlfriend didn't know this so she thought my download already completed and deleted the file :( After 4 hours of waiting I was unable to continue the download since the file is no longer avaliable anymore :/

Now my question is, where this 1.5 GB file gone? I have already checked %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\myprofile\storage\default\https+++mega.co.nz but it's not there, the folder size is 102 KB. I checked %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\myprofile\storage\temporary too but that folder is completely empty. Also checked AppData\Local\Temp as well but it's not there either. The size of my Temp folder is just 10 MB.

While I was searching this, I saw some people saying (if I understood correct) the temporary download location of Mega isn't in hard drive, but in the RAM instead. I want to ask can anyone confirm is this actually true? and if so what happens to that space in RAM when download interrupts like this? Does it delete it from RAM automatically when I close Firefox?

Can anyone with knowledge in this regard please help me with this problem :( I am on SSD and already have a very few space left and I don't want to clutter my SSD with 1.5 GB unusuable file :(( Neither want 1.5 GB space got occupied in my RAM :((

Thank you so very much in advance.

I believe this info is relevant, but this undated page may be out of date (I am on Windows 10 with 94.0.2 ) -- I do not see the things they refer to:

"Tap the menu button:" which has a URL, a "1" in a box, and a three-vertical-dots array in a red box.

Clicking upper-right-corner icons at random has "disconnected" my account. Just getting in deeper. I bet I have to log in again...

Hi Folks,

I've used Firefox for years with no problem. Yesterday, I was seeking out a specific font. The website looked legit, but then a security block happened and I don't recall if it was Firefox security or Acronis that flashed a brief "block" announcement. In any case, from that point on, several "racey" websites popped up every time I loaded Firefox. This happened even after I restarted my computer. I then checked to see if I had pop-ups blocked on the Firefox options. I didn't, so I checked the box against pop-ups. But what happens now is Firefox does an attempt to load TWICE with an odd jerk-flash movement. Only one Firefox browser window comes up -- and that's good -- but SOMETHING is still trying to make those "racey" websites load. Why? How?

All of that to say that I'm concerned about security. Should I uninstall Firefox and reinstall?

Thanks for your input! Bob Anderson

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

I am running Firefox 94.0 in a couple of Linux Mint systems.

My main desktop computer, with a 3.8 GHz 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 processor on an MSI B450-A PRO MAX MB with 16 GB RAM, has had Linux Mint 19.3 installed for over a year. Just today, Firefox, which has also been installed in this OS for a long time, exhibited extreme slowness. I did an online search, and found that the slowness was cured by using the Troubleshoot Mode, but none of the suggestions I found solved the problem in normal mode. So, I went into Settings and turned off hardware acceleration. That solved the problem, somewhat ironically. The hardware acceleration seemed to accomplish deceleration instead. So my browser works, but there is something wrong with hardware acceleration in Firefox.

On a new install of Linux Mint 20.04, I recently experienced frequent crashing of Firefox just after clicking on a link. I tried online solutions, which didn't help, but then I turned off - - guess what - - hardware acceleration, and no more crashes. That is what motivated me to turn off hardware acceleration in Firefox on my Linux Mint 19.3 machine today.

I don't really have a problem to solve, but I don't know of a better place to submit a bug report, so I am hoping you will pass this on to the developers.

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.
