Firefox view is a new feature that looks awesome and I'd love to try it out to sync stuff between devices. There's just one problem:

  1. Firefox view works on my laptop and seems to work on my phone, but does not work on my desktop.

For reference:

  • Desktop (doesn't have view tab) is Mac Mini 2020 (M1) on Mac OS Ventura 13.0 (22A380)
  • Laptop (has view tab) is Mac Mini 2020 (M1) on Mac OS Ventura 13.0 (22A380)
  • Both devices are running Firefox 106.0.2 (64-bit)

I have already:

  • Made sure "Open Tabs" is enabled for sync on all devices
  • Looked for the firefox view in the "Customize Toolbar" menu
  • Disabled / Re-enabled Firefox-View in about:config

Firefox or an open pinned tab repeatedly crashes

I am a Firefox user on both of my own computers, but also install it on all systems I support remotely. On one of those the user is a heavy FF user with multiple pinned tabs. This worked without issues for a very long time. However, since V 106 (I don't know it his is related) FF and/or individual tabs frequently crash (on start, or later), offers to restore session or tab, is successful, but then the whole sequence repeats. We have taken all troubleshooting steps, including disabling all extensions, and starting in safe mode, but to no avail.

The system in question runs WINDOWS10 (Home), 64 bit, V 22H2 (newest upgrade) and all patches applied.

Any help or suggestions would be hugely appreciated.

I am not a sophisticated computer user and I have some cognitive problems due to age and illness so please be as simplistic as possible with any response. I was trying out new features and now have the private browsing icon on the bottom bar on my screen. The color purple triggers strong anxiety for me so I just want to get that off my screen. I won't be using private browsing so I want to remove it. I tried to drag it to the recycle bin but couldn't get rid of it that way. Please help me remove that icon from ever being on my screen. Thank you.

Firefox is the browser I use for my AT &T E-mails. I cannot sign in anymore using my password. It says too many attempts have been made to sign in, when it was the first time on that day I am trying to sign-in. I have tried to change my password and it works for a while, and then the same thing happens a few days later. Please help. AT & T tell me that it is the Firefox browser that is doing this. I have tried getting help with AT & T and they can't figure it out.

Firefox - all open tabs gone, again!

Hi, yet again, I've opened Firefox to find just one tab, a Mozilla ad in this case; the 40 or so tabs I had open are gone. I had prepped for a day's work ahead and had opened the tabs I needed for research and work, ready to start in the morning. I don't know what's causing it; I do know that this most often happens when I've shut down Firefox, then go to Thunderbird for a last check of emails, and click on a link in an email which opens Firefox.

Is this a bug? Does Firefox just not like being opened via an email link? Is it a problem if a Firefox private window has been left open inadvertently, even though Firefox was properly shut? Or is it just Firefox updates that cause this problem? It's been happening for a while now, and is really frustrating and costly, workwise. Yes, I do have restore previous session ticked. I've shared the data report below - at the time of this post, not at the time of opening Firefox. Any help would be really appreciated, especially if it's simply explained :) Thank you

Firefox Crashing Multiple TImes a Day

I'm not entirely sure what happened but I know earlier this year in as recent as July Firefox was working fine. I don't know if it was an update or what it was but now Firefox is consistently crashing multiple times a day.

There's never an error code but one of a few things happens:

  • The entire application will freeze and not let me control Firefox at all. I need to launch Task Manager to close the browser and then sometimes reset my computer to ensure it doesn't happen again.
  • With the most recent update, some of my emails on GMail (not all just some random ones) will not load in any capacity.
  • The browser will flicker white and will hide the top bar of the application so I can't close it without task manager.
  • The application will slow down and then crash with a "Do you want to send this report to Mozilla?" and I always click yes.

I have tried disabling and removing all extensions, I've tried firewall stuff, I've tried everything I can find but the browser is only getting worse in my experience. With this last update everything loads a few seconds slower than usual as well.

Is there a solution I am missing or am I doing something wrong? I am very very close to switching browsers but I'd rather not if there is a fix.

Firefox Freezing and Crashing after updating to 106.

Hello, I've been experiencing some issues after updating to version 106. I can be watching a video, listening to a music of viewing a site and randomly, the browser would become unresponsive and freeze. The funny thing is that music or videos keep playing in the background and the RAM or CPU usage never goes down but I can't do anything. After a while if I try to click on the browser, it then brings up a popup telling me that the app is unresponsive and I could either wait or close the app. Previously I had waited for over 2 hours hoping that it would fix itself but that never happens. The only saving grace is that I am able to restore my previous tabs after closing Firefox but tabs on my private tabs are gone forever (P.S. It's not p0rn but site that i don't want cached on my browser). This started from me updating to version 106 and currently am on 106.0.2 but the issue persists. I was hoping someone can assist me with this as I do prefer using Firefox.

Lately using Firefox, the audio is not syncing with video on Xfinity streaming. The audio seems to precede the video by about a half second or so. When I first load a video, it works properly, but I finally discovered that the delay occurs only after I mute the audio using the "PLAYING/MUTE TAB" button. Before muting, audio is in sync with video. But when I use it once to mute, after un-muting the audio is out of sync. The only way to get the audio back in sync with video is to reload the video source. This does not happen when viewing YouTube, nor does it happen with Xfinity when using the Chrome browser. I first noticed this about 2 months ago. Before that, I had been using Firefox for years to watch MSNBC in a minimized window, muting during commercials. Unmuting used to cause no problems. I'm wondering if this problem is unique to something in my installation or if it is a Firefox problem.
