I have reinstalled, refreshed, run in safe mode, and nothing helps. I get constant tabs crashing and it has cost me a good deal of time redoing things several times to get anything accomplished online. I get crashes with no apparent pattern or link to a particular website or task. I run Webroot and Spybot for security. I installed spybot after the crashes started thinking maybe there was malware but nothing was found and nothing changed. My hardware is an Asus laptop running on an i7-7700HQ with a GTX 1080. My Intel drivers are all up to date and my Nvidia drivers are Studio 431.70 but I also had issues with crashing on other Nvidia drivers and only recently settled on studio to make certain it was not the culprit.

Here are my most recent crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-2e0a970f-c659-4b88-ac2a-714340190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-8420d99b-6dcb-40ed-8310-2ed480190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-ce3e056e-0e59-420f-acb8-28baa0190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-6f32a198-5636-48aa-a702-9212e0190902 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bp-50ef9668-ca26-4585-ac0a-d1c210190902

Thank you for any help you might be able to provide.

Firefox is installed on both my home laptop and my work desktop. I recently started getting the following error when trying to log into my bank site on the home laptop; "Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." I have included a screenshot.

I can log into the same site from my work computer with no problem. I also have Chrome installed on the laptop and can log into the bank site properly.

My laptop has Firefox version 68.0.2

I've seen help messages about unblocking, but my efforts haven't resulted in any change. I do notice that on the web and FF help there seem to be multiple instances of this problem. I'm not enough of a tech to wade into this, so I would really appreciate guidance. All other pages behave as expected.

For some specific reason I uninstalled Chrome - probably something to do with security, I guess but then I seemed to find the answer and it had nothing to do with Chrome. I've therefore tried to re-install it but failed. I can download it and save it but when I try to run and load it nothing happens. Any answers will be appreciated.

With my advanced years I spend far too much time browsing Imgur and Reddit but I like doing so - they're relaxing, informative, sometimes provocative sites and they suit me well. However of late there have been problems. Firefox (since it's the only browser I can use, thanks to Firefox seemingly blocking others) seems to be disabling most NSFW pictures and videos and now won't even play GIF links on those two sites. (Weirdly enough however I can watch porn on other sites, so where's the problem?) Sure, this might be a European setting but I can find no other information to help me unlock this setting so any information will be appreciated. And yes, I've emptied all my cookies, etc. but to no avail.

I am trying to find a video on How to make Firefox start when Windows startup?

There are instructions on how to do it but I get confused really fast. I like videos to show me.

you have to do that in Windows 10 autostart folder in the start menu. You can do that by: 1. Press the Windows Logo Key + R, type shell:startup, and then select OK. This opens the Startup folder. 2. find the app you're looking to add or remove, and drag and drop it in the folder or copy it, then Paste the shortcut to your app into the Startup folder to have it run at startup.

Every few days or so, I notice that things don't get synchronised any more between my various Firefoxes (private Windows PC, work Linux PC, Android smartphone and Android tablet). The problem is always that I have to sign in again with my Firefox Account. It still remembers my user name, but I have to type in my password and occasionally also receive a confirmation email.

Does anybody know what the reason behind this could be and how to avoid this?

Hi. When using Booking.com's owners' extranet in particular, we now see an error message saying that our anti-virus software (Avast) is trying to use Java Scripts for passwords and this is slowing Firefox down.... We have checked the Firefox help pages and tried to update Java but have found the error message attached, stating that Firefox and Java are no longer friends!

We aren't about to dump a perfectly effective and paid-for anti virus tool but don't want to have to use Chrome, so does anyone have any ideas please? Thanks in advance Unionfan

I have not been able to boot Firefox for several weeks now, I've tried my best to fix it but have yet to succeed. I do have several add-ons, but can't modify or delete/disable because Firefox crashes on startup. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. My crash reports cite EXC_BAD_ACCESS / EXC_I386_GPFLT . I haven't been able to find an explanation of those errors.
