What happens is no matter how many tabs I open, after a few minutes I will not be able to open a link in any new tab. A short while later I cannot re-use the tabs where I did manage to open a link before - when I type or paste in a new link and press enter, or rcl+paste and go nothing happens - nothing gets loaded. In the "console" I see zero movement, same in the "network" tab of devtools.

I then close firefox and try to open a new instance. Often nothing will happen - when I go then to task manager I will see 4 instances of Firefox processes running and I have to kill 3 of them (the 4th disappears automatically after I "end task" the 3rd one).

Reinstalling does not help, disabling hardware acceleration does not help. Admittedly I do not experience this on my other machine (both Windows 10 and 11 - on yhis machine changing over to Win11 did not influence this).

What's interesting is it started some 6 months ago (I think), and the issue disappears shortly before the next update. Then I foolishly install the FF update, and the issue resurfaces.

I have no idea what's causing this but I hate it. I need help with this please.

Hi! I'm using Firefox 95.0 on Linux Manjaro Gnome. For some reason, strange CSS styles began to appear on some sites, making them unreadable. It is not possible to understand where this styles comes from, but definitely not from the site, since in other browsers they are displayed correctly. Here is a link to screenshots from different sites screenshot 1 screenshot 2 What's most interesting - in the Settings What I have tried: - Fonts And Colors section: The checkbox in the "Use system colors" is unchecked The checkbox in "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" is checked - I also tried to clear the browser cache - Also disabled all plugins - Changed the theme to the default one. - Disabled / Enabled "Use hardware acceleration when available" - I think that styles from userContent.css & userChrome.css are applied to sites. And I removed this files from /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/87syjf8o.default-release/chrome How I can fix this?

Window 10 Firefox login table date scientific number conversion to Excel date numbers

Dear Sir or Madam; I downloaded a login CSV file from the Firefox browser. The date columns format in the CSV login file is ‘1.64055E+12’. In EXCEL, 44556.79166 would translate to 2021/12/26 18:59:59. The translation of ‘1.64055E+12’ should not be the same exact date, but should be in the same date range, as the 44556.79166 number. I’m not a mathematician. Would you please show me how to convert the '1.64055E+12' value to an equivalent excel date/time number? I could then format the excel date number cells to an yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss format. These scientific number values are in the Firefox login file CSV downloads so I assume they were intended to be used in EXCEL spread sheet. These values converted to EXCEL date values would help me sort account password date change records by account name and change date. I could review sorted account records (and thus determine the current password for individual old accounts). Your solution would help me immensely and I appreciate your time.

Searched the forums and web, no one seems to have answer that I have found. Firefox 95.02, Windows 10 Pro, 8 GB RAM, Dell Notebook, fiber optic Internet 156 mbps Start by running CCleaner, disable un-needed startups, extensions, ad-ons, ect., then roboot, have clean slate. About 3 months ago, after about 15 minutes Firefox slows down, then quits loading images, then eventually quits loading whole pages. If I was blocking content it would not work for at least 10 minutes. This evening, 21.38 clean boot, start FF, go to Facebook, read notifications, 1 tab open, nothing else running 21.55 images fail to load, still one tab open Researched more and ran about:memory, memory-report.json.gz unable to figure out how to upload Run CCLeaner, I do not save cookies or cache after FF closes, reboot 22.04 start Firefox, 1 tab open nothing else 22.16 images slow loading 22.20 nothing loads, try other websites like NOAA radar, all fine Reminds me I saw at the bottom left "Waiting for static.xx.fbcdn.net" Screen shot of Task Manager attached, FF running 10 times, 154 kb image will not upload Failed to upload, copying this txt and starting over. Images loaded fine after reboot Facebook works fine on Edge, I do not have/use Chrome or Google Facebook is the only page Firefox has issues with.

file:/Desktop/Removed%20Apps.html On Thursday, November 25, 2021 9:02 AM my PC was refreshed, so says the Firefox icon that popped up on my screen, and I presume by FireFox because they removed about 25 Apps that I typically use.

1-How do I re-install them? 2- and why would they be removed?

thanks for assistance and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Good morning. When I go to the Medicare.gov site and log in, there is a search box to search for things. It asks for zip code and provides a drop down menu to select from. After I do this and initiate a search it just shows a spinning wheel and does not provide the results.

No problem with my internet connection or speed and I turned off enhanced protection and I am allowing pop ups for the site.

I did this on my Samsung phone and it worked fine.

Thanks for any help.

OK, this is a little funny. It used to be, if I wanted to open a website, I just clicked on the URL, and Firefox would open with it. Now (and I'm using 95.0.2 on iMac Big Sur), when I click on the the URL NOTHING HAPPENS if a Firefox window isn't already open. That is, you have to have a Firefox window already open in order for the website to appear. For example, in the Bookmark library, if a Firefox window isn't already open, clicking on a website there won't open it. You need to right click it and select OPEN. Now, Firefox is selected already as the default browser for the system.

How do I fix this? I mean, how do I get it back the way it used to be?

To avoid neck strain, I have my browser window set to fill only the lower part of my screen - not maximized.

When I open regular FF, it opens the window to the desired size & position. But when I then open a private window, it opens in the right size, but at the top of the screen, and I have to move it down every time - which strains my neck. Is there any setting I can change so that the private window will open in the same size & position as the regular window?

This for me since 95.0.2 Upgrade (cause or coincidence = ??) BUT in the Mozillazine Sppt Forum 2 guys had trouble logging into one Certain Site (different for each), one solved with Cookies and the 2nd found Manual Login worked on HIS ONE Problem site while Auto-Fill Password Failed and Still does.

I have confirmed that the Moderator of Eileen's Lounge Forum (link below) - AND I - Cannot login to the Mozillazine Forums in any manner. Login shows Successful, can See Logout link at far right, BUT Clk a link, OR get directed to Board Index AND the Login box shows again. Continual Looping of this NO Matter what trick is tried (SafeMode-Test Profile-ClearCookies,etc) . Cannot, therefore, even Ask Moderators for help. Cannot make 2nd Profile to attempt login that way as Security Code always shows "Wrong Code entered" WHEN it was Accurate. Thanks for any suggestions, including (much appreciated IF possible) someone Forwarding this Thread Link to a Moderator at Mozillazine.
