I have read and applied all the fixes from previous responses to this problem and nothing works. Scrolling through Facebook is a nightmare with the page re-loading every 10 seconds, and creating a visual disturbance on screen. Please advise a permanent fix. Thanks

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

I have already set "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy" to false I have already opened "http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/" in another tab, but Firefox did not ask me to add a certificate.

This may be helpful, a warning that appeared before the one above: "Loading mixed (insecure) display content “http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/” on a secure page"

First of all, I'm using Mac. And so, if my firefox is not responding or still lagging, I always force quit it right away. However last night it didn't work like that. My firefox was usually fine after I forced quit it and started it again, but yesterday it crashed from when it was starting.

I'm flustered and try to open it a few more times, but the result was still the same, crash and crash again. Firefox tried to give me options by using the safe mode. I thought it could work if I went with the safe mode, but unfortunately even in safe mode, my firefox still crashed.

And just like that I also don't have a choice to access the troubleshooting menu in firefox because it crashed before I could go there. That's why I'm here to request help.

This is the report ID I just submitted a few minutes before posting this. bp-7dbf5090-1315-48b5-af5f-fe7d20180523

If you need details of the report just ask me. I've already copied that from the crash reporter. Thank you!

The main reason I still use Chrome is to keep my laptop fan from turning on when I watch YouTube videos. This then leads me to use Chrome for other reasons as well. I would prefer to use Firefox, but I don't like it when my fan turns on. My Firefox is up to date according to me preferences page.

I have tried unchecking "Use hardware acceleration when possible" and restarting Firefox, but the fan still comes on.

What's the solution?

FF 60.0.1 (64-bit) on linux Mint using English EU formatting instead of English US

Since FF updated to 60.0.1 (64bit) on linux Mint, the date formatting on some sites has changed from English US (mm/dd/yy) to English Europe (dd/mm/yy). The FF language preference is set to (1) English [en] and (2) English/united States [en-us] (I tried it with the order reversed as well). Going to the same sites on the same machine with Chrome displays US date format. Any ideas?

Firefox connects to IP address of a website automatically on starting

Not talking about connecting to Amazon cloud and the like, it connects to a website that threw a pop-under once. Not in favorites and FF is set to start to a blank page.

Added the site to my HOSTS file to redirect to localhost, still loads but of course sending a few bytes back and forth to mypc.mydomain.local

Attached is image of what happened before modifying the HOSTS file

This is odd behaviour. Not happening with any other FF used by others in the office.

Let me add, that sporadically it also establish a connection that can't be blocked via HOSTS file as it's an IP address connection that resolves to verisondigitalmedia.com - and we're in Europe, not USA so what the...is Verizon doing showing up?

Note also, no extensions or add-ins other then UBlock Origin. Machine runs Avast and also scanned with Malwarebytes for sanity-check. All clean.

This is odd, yes?

VR

PS - Was unable to upload an image showing the connection. It automatically connects to clicktripz.com

Blocking http://searchguide.windstream.net which automatically fills url box with an unsolicited search result and displays: 414 Request-URI Too Large

Whenever a mistake is made in typing a url, http://searchguide.windstream.net automatically appears to try and search an alternate result, but instead fills the URL box with pages of jibberish that takes minutes to remove or delete, and then apparently times out and flags its own unsolicited efforts:

414 Request-URI Too Large

Simply X-ing out the tab and starting over is an option, but still a nuisance.

Blocking this particular web site, http://searchguide.windstream.net, would probably resolve the issue without blocking other services provided by Windstream.

Here is an example: If "democracynow.com" is entered instead of "democracynow.org" a huge amount of garbage is thrown into the url window by this unsolicited "searchguide" website and the following error message is presented by this unauthorized search effort: "414 Request-URI Too Large"

Other websites redirect appropriately, like "http://www.vitaletherapeutics.com" redirects without to "http://www.vitaletherapeutics.org" without automatically invoking http://searchguide.windstream.net and without creating the error message: "414 Request-URI Too Large"

If this is a form of web censorship and denial of access, I want to know more about it and help other web sites to take action to help ensure 1st Amendment inspired net neutrality, and to curb censorship.

Partial URL box/window content after unsolicited "searchguide" activity:

Every now and then, usually several minutes or so, the browser crashes but it doesn't feel like it since the tabs are still running, workable and scrollable. But I can't switch tabs since they seem to shrink so you can only switch tabs by lowering the arrow to the white-striped areas below every tab. Clicking in what appears to be the tab will lead you to other running application in the background. Clicking randomly will lead to the appearance of a bigger white block covering all the menu bar and the tabs.

Closing the browser using Task Manager doesn't remove the block, rendering other applications useless because we cannot see/click the buttons.

This happened since right after I updated to Firefox 60.0.

I'm stumped, please help.

Since updating to Firefox 59, I can no longer visit Wordpress sites. Every time I do so, I get "Gah! Your Tab Just Crashed." I've submitted tons of crash reports, and the reason for the crash each time is EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS.

Any idea on what the problem is and how to fix it? In the meantime, I'm unfortunately forced to revert to an earlier version.

My laptop crashed hard a day or two ago. I lost everything and booted back to factory setting. It's Windows 10 os. When I signed in to Firefox, I received my sign-in email, so my account seems to be fine, but the bookmarks, add-ons and passwords aren't appearing on my latest install. Please advise.

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).
