Firefox Constanly Crashing and Breaking Keyboard

Hi

Well it's happening again. I believe that it was the last update before this one where I first encountered this problem and ended up having to completely reinstall Windows 10, which helped very little. Long story short, when that update took place my Toggle Keys were triggered and no matter what I do I can't turn them off. They're still like that.

Today, Firefox crashed all of a sudden and then updated itself. Right before it crashed though, I was having trouble with my mouse and keyboard arrows (only happens when Firefox is open). The mouse buttons and the down key weren't working. I can get the mouse to work for maybe a minute if I hold down CTRL for a few seconds, but then it craps out on me again. Also, the down arrow wouldn't scroll down. The up arrow worked fine, but the down arrow wouldn't and I would have to press it repeatedly to scroll.

And now it's doing what it was before I had no choice but to reinstall Windows. It's crashing nonstop. Sometimes it's just the tabs, sometimes it's the whole browser.

I also just used Task Manager to end Firefox because I was on Unsplash and the page was flickering and showing weird patterns and I couldn't get out of it. But I got a low memory error, but my memory said it was only at 47%! All that was open was Firefox, Photoshop, and 3 folders. I've never had a low memory error!

I've restarted in safe-mode, disabled add-ons, and done all the other usual steps. And of course I had to install Firefox again after I reinstalled Windows. I'm at a loss. This is so frustrating and pretty much makes going on the internet impossible. I really need and would ever so much appreciate any help.

Thank you

The more tabs I open, the narrower they are to fit in window, right? Right.

But it used to work the way that when I close multiple of them, they stayed the same size for a second or so which meant closing multiple of them in a row was much easier (just click in the same place multiple times), right?

Well, it used to (work that way) because it doesn't anymore. Tabs are resizing instantly which is annoying. Here's my question: is there a setting in about:config that got resetted or something or FF70 doesn't have this function anymore? Thanks!

The newest release 70.0 disables ANY AND ALL of your personas - they worked perfectly in the previous version. The ONLY SOLUTION IS TO one by one, uninstall and then reinstall any or all of your favorite personas - NOTHING ELSE WORKS - WHICH IS BULLCRAP. Mozilla needs to test ALL UPDATES BEFORE MAKING THEM LIVE - but they OBVIOUSLY don't and then WE are left to figure this junk out on our own. HEY MOZILLA, "GREAT BUSINESS MODEL YA' GOT GOING - NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO, does anyone even know if they Mr-Know-it-Alls that code this are even aware of what they screwed up but more importantly, do they even care??!!??

I use a mac mini.

Firefox updated sometime today. Now it won't connect to Amazon - Really? I sell on Amazon. I need to work. I cannot take 2 hours to fix Firefox and I am not very well versed in trouble shooting.

It doesn't connect when I type in the address bar It doesn't connect from my bookmarks It doesn't connect when I google Amazon and try that link It doesn't connect with or without www.

If I don't find an answer that I can use quickly and easily, I will be going to Safari. I'm used to Firefox. It has been my go to for 15 years. This is ridiculous.

I've recently noticed that after updating to 70.0, if I don't simply untick Bing as a search engine option, it will keep appearing at the bottom of my URL suggestions. I've tried unticking and even removing it from my list via Options, but if I exit out of and come back to Firefox, it shows up again. Is there any way for me to permanently remove Bing from my list of one-click search engines, or should I just keep it on the list but unticked?

I always using terminal to open my firefox by.

firefox.exe -profile path\to\my\profile

but when I click any external link, firefox keep using the default profile to open the link.

I've tried 1. Google somthing about "maybe there's a command switch to force firefox keep in single instance" --- no luck. 2. Using "-no-remote" switch to open my profile

The only solution now is migrate my current profile to default profile to fix this issue, but I just don't like more stuff in %appdata% and also harder to manage the profile.

Hope someone can help me out ! Thanks !

I'm using Firefox 70.0, 64-bit on Windows 10 Home and now I'm getting sick of the builtin PDF viewer. In the newest Firefox release I cannot download the viewed PDF document anymore in order to open it in another PDF viewer to print it. Because Firefox, when printing PDF's, scales the pdf down to about half the size leaving 50% of the printed page empty....

In the past I used to download the PDF and open it in Foxit/Adobe/whatever. These tolls print perfect, but now also this workaround is blocked...

I often use the trick of right clicking on a link and then open in new tab to keep the original web page open but now nothing happens when I do it. I wonder if there has been a Firefox update today which has caused this.

It started this morning and I'd be most grateful for some assistance with this as it's particularly useful with Facebook.

I used to watch MSNBC on a web site. I think it was from Europe. A month or so ago they stopped it if they say you had ad blocker on. BUT, on Ubuntu, the video would stop but the audio kept on, until today when it asked to upgrade. I did and now it all cuts out. I'd like to try the older version and see if I still get the audio.
