My tabs keep crashing (Gah! Your tab has crashed) when browsing. I have not discovered a particular pattern or specific website(s) that may be causing it. Crashes started happening around 2/21. Occasionally, the entire browser would crash and I would need to restart it.

Here are a few of the most recent crash reports.

Textexpander in Google Sheets adds a line break upon expansion in Firefox

I've come across a problem with using Textexpander in Google Sheets in Firefox.

Say I have a snippet that expands to =INDEX(B2:B,MATCH("green",A2:A,0),1)

Now if I expand that by just typing the abbreviation shortcut, i.e. gs.index, it gets expanded, but has a line break before it within the cell so it doesn't get recognised as a formula. I have to manually delete the line break out.

However, if I use the global keyboard shortcut to search for the snippet and select it from the list, when entered, it goes into the cell without a preceding line break and gets registered as a formula.

Is there anyway to overcome this issue that you know of? I'm using Firefox 85.0.2, mainly because I'm on High Sierra and Safari cannot be updated beyond 13.1.2. Incidentally, I don't get this problem when using Safari.

I've raised this with the guys at Smile Software too, but asking here as it does seem to be a Firefox-specific issue.

Thanks.

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Issue: Firefox browser loads and displays correctly, but will not load any webpages. Clicking a bookmark, or typing a URL and pressing enter, both do nothing. I can click the menu button to see the menu, but clicking on options does not do anything.

Thoughts: It is like the code for the browser is missing, even though the software seems to load fine, like when you add a button on a form in visual studio but don't add any code behind it.

What I've tried: Fresh install x2 with the latest version

Installed version: 85.0.2 64bit

Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.

I loaded Firefox onto a new Win10 laptop yesterday and made it the default browser (against the "recommended" Edge). Today some websites are loading very slowly (e.g. PCMag home page takes 30 seconds to load). Some https sites load normally and others are slow. I refreshed Firefox, did not fix it. Is there something I can do?

I have been a user of Firefox since 2003. I have noticed that no matter what I do Firefox will lock up. I keep getting the "An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" message. I have looked on your support pages to no avail. Firefox has become incredibly slow. So slow that I cannot use it whenever I am able to get access. I am running Windows 10 and have the most up to date Firefox version. Also it is impossible to send an email to Mozilla - there is just no option to do so. I always thought you were not like Microsoft but you are steadily getting that way. I have no issues with Edge and unfortunately I am being forced to use Edge as Firefox is either too slow or does not work at all.

Windows 10 crash - Firefox can't load websites - other browsers can - Requires Windows restart TWICE

Hi,

I am using Windows 10 Edition Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on ‎24-‎08-‎2020 OS build 19042.804 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit) is my main browser

This issue has been bothering me for a very long time and hence I have turned here for help.

Whenever my Windows shuts down abruptly (due to power failure,etc) upon restart everything else works fine EXCEPT Firefox

Internet works well on ALL other browsers EXCEPT Firefox.

My current workaround is to restart Windows TWICE and ONLY Then Firefox works normally.

I have checked: 1. Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can From <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can> but this does not seem relevant as no changes have been made to any setting

2. Firefox may have shut down abnormally, leaving the lock file in place. To fix this, open the profile folder (see Finding your profile without opening Firefox) and delete the parent.lock file. From <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding#w_remove-the-profile-lock-file> I have tried to delete the parent.lock file and restart Firefox but there is no benefit. Websites do not open

The ONLY step which seems to work is to RESTART Windows TWICE.

Can anyone please guide me on how to fix this APART from restarting Windows TWICE?

Thanks a lot!

The mozilla firefox stop working suddenly on Windows 10, i tried almost everything and i was not being able to fix it. What i did is :

1. Started firefox in safe mode 2. Uninstalled compeletely firefox and then tried to install it, on end of installation was getting the error the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000000d) 3. checked about:crashes is not possible because only allow you to write and nothing else happens if you press enter stays as it is

Somehow firefox installed and i am only able to start it on compatible mode, how can i fix the problem and see what it happens?

Running in compatible mode breaks the visual on full screen also.

Seems like this issue recurs every now and again. Right Click on a link and try to "Save Link As..." and Firefox hangs. All of my browsers started doing it in the last few weeks. Suspected PC Matic, as I had installed it recently, but disabling it did not help. Clear Cache and Default Settings seemed to once or twice but then problem persisted.

Looks like it's a bug in the pop-up blocker. Disabled it and "Save Link As..." again works perfectly. Same for all other browsers. Looks like pop-up block does not recognize "Save Link As..." as a permitted pop-up and the system call to File Explorer (Windows 8.1) has nowhere to go. Task freezes solid and can only be killed by Task Manager.

HTH find the real solution. Thanks!
