When I attempt to use Firefox, everything hangs unless I continuously move the mouse.
I've searched all over the internet for a resolution to this issue. I've seen lots of indications that Malware is the issue. My computer is issued and maintained remotely by the company I work for. It regularly scans for Malware so I don't think that could be the issue. I am running a brand new install of FireFox that I installed today. I have not installed any Add-Ons or signed into the browser. The only plugin I've authorized is Flash (necessary for the site I need to use to work).
I've actually had this issue for years. I keep trying to use FireFox every once in a while figuring an update will eventually resolve the issue. So far it always re-occurs. I'm now at a point where I have a program I need to use that won't work on Chrome or IE so I really would like to be able to use FireFox.

In the past weeks, suddenly my Firefox started behaving really weird - a few times a day the currently opened tab becomes unresponsive (you can't click or hover anything) but you can still scroll through them (at least a bit - after that point, it's just plain white). At these times, the cursor is the hand one, during the whole unresponsiveness episode, as if everything was clickable (though obviously clicking does nothing). You also can't close the tab during this tab - the only way is either to wait a good 30 seconds for it to unfreeze or to change to a different tab and close the unresponsive one. When you do change tabs, though, the newly opened tab sometimes disappears completely, with a radial loading circle appearing in the middle of the screen for a few seconds before it magically reappears (it does _not_ reload, though!). From what I've been able to observe, this tends to appear on content-heavy websites like Reddit, Facebook and YouTube most often.
What is happening? I haven't changed my browsing habits in the past weeks, nor have I installed any new add-ons. I've tried disabling the ones I have but it's still happening with them turned off. What else may I try?
Why am I getting this message? "Your connection is not secure. The owner of www.google.co.uk has configured their web site improperly.
I am using Firefox and cannot connect to Google. Would appreciate advice (simple instructions please!)

hello. my problem is related to the question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1158868https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1158868 i believe that there is a bug in esr version of firefox that causes that i cant open many https website and recieve secure connection failed error. or is there any setting (specific to EsrVersion of firefox that i should change to can open websites? my story as followes. i one day downloaded and used one vpn program, (dont remember openning these specific websites before using vpn when i installed firefox esr version. i cant open many websites that could open previously. for example: www.daumpotplayer.com www.bleepingcomputer.com www.howtogeek.com are just three examples and the numbers are more! i reset my dns settings in network connections and solved the problem temporarily. but the problem came back again after reusing vpn program again and did not solve until now. i uninstalled and reinstalled my firefox several times without any success. using safemode (with fresh profile) as i said: does not work, because (see my previous sentence.) dont suggest any antivirus or antimalware for me, because i dont trust such programs and never use them! so, my problem is not related to interfeering antivirus or antimalware programs and there false positive! i tested google chrome and chrome opened the websites without any problem, so it is firefox issue only. so, i tested the article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can did not work for me when i changed the network.ssl options which are mentioned in the article.
i tested with several versions of firefox esr and the result was secure connection failed error message. firefox esr 45.9, 52.4, 52.5.2, 52.6 and 52.8, so i am sure that there is a problem in esr versions of firefox that should be fixed, or a unique about:config setting (present only in firefox esr versions, not regular versions) that should be change by user to resolve this issue. i wished and decided that use firefoxEsr 52.8 forever, but if the problem cant be fixed, i should firefox 51 and use it forever without update!
because when i installed firefox 51, could open all the websites without any problem and my firefox now is even faster and more responsive than esr version! i thaught that firefox esr should be more stable, trustworthy and less error! by the way, i use firefox 32bit version on windows xp.

Hello, I have a problem with Firefox at YouTube. Every video I try to play, it happens the same, this same problem appears. I've tried everything, restarting, cleaning, removing RegEdit of Firefox, nothing helps. I think others may have this problem but not noted. I've tried Safe Mode, no plugins, etc. I've tried embeds, they make this too.

Hello I have searched this forum already and the best description for this isssue is
"Since quiet some time(~3/4 Year) videos playback on youtube (and twitch) is choppy/stuttering (it looks like the playbock is not in the right order, if A-B-C-D-E-F-G-... is the right order for the frames it looks like A-D-E-B-F-C-G-H-... and then normal again for few seconds, and then again)." from this case https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1195382
And the very example is even shown in this video https://vimeo.com/271932549 captured by another user with same issue from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1217350#answer-1112431
neither of those were answered anyway. I am bumping this issue as I have the same problem. I already tried to disable all addons, disable webgl, disable or throttle HW acceleration, refresh firefox, even tried to swithc to ESR version but none of these helped. I installed chrome, got the identical/functionally similiar addons and tried to watch youtube/twitch - it was going smooth even after longer period of time. Other players not based on html5 are playing just fine though, it is just that html5 player...and on twitch and yt...

Using FF 60.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 7 computer. No significant problems in past, but over the last few days I've had three BSODs (Blue Screen of Death) when switching from one website to another. Can't find any problems with computer, which reboots and runs without problem after these crashes. No changes to computer other than two recent Windows updates (malicious software removal and monthly rollup), but first BSOD occurred before those updates.
Anyone else having this problem? Should I uninstall 60.0.2 and install an earlier version?
All suggestions welcome!

It used to be that when I hovered over the Firefox icon on the window's taskbar, I would get a view of open WINDOWS, with the active tab displayed. Now it displays all open tabs.
My users and I are finding this to be an irritation. I have 2 firefox WINDOWS open... that's what I would like to see, not a representation of 15 tabs.
Is there a way to set it back?
Firefox is currently the default browser. However, when I search, it opens a new tab but with no search results.

I've already turned off sounds in "Notifications." But there still remain other sounds that Firefox makes during operation, that I'd like to turn off. How do I turn them off as well?
If I open Firefox I receive a Norton error: network traffic from zukxd6fkxqn.com matches known attack signature. The attack was resulted from device/FIREFOX.exe

It shows this screen "Gah. Your tab just crashed." every time when I clicked to the video inside the Youtube. The homepage of Youtube works. AND I use Chrome or IE or Edge all works of playing videos. After I reinstall Firefox, it just the same.
The recent Firefox update to 59.0.1 on macOS 10.13.3 logs me out of accounts when a session is closed, even if the "keep me logged in" features are enabled.

Using Win 10. I have used Firefox for probably more than 10 years. I have used Juno e-mail on web for more or less the same amount of time. I have had problems in the past with the program but have been able to work them out with clean-up, etc. This time, I have not been able to get it worked out. The problem is that when I take an action, like open an e-mail or delete e-mails, it indicates "loading" and does not do anything more. The problem has gotten increasingly serious. At first, I could do some minor things and It would work at least for a time. Then it would work less before having to do something. I installed Opera and at first did not have any problem with it. Later, it started doing the same thing. It got where the further I could get on the e-mail was load the first page. Sometimes not even that. I have not had problem with any other page. I started using Edge and so far have not had any problem using it fot the Juno. I have gone through all the steps of deleting history, cookies, etc., refreshing Firefox, safe mode, and lastly uninstalling and reinstalling. Any ideas?

Hi : )
I love Firefox, and I find it simply excellent. But...
in the last months Im having lots of FREQUENT crashes. I dont know why.
it often crashes (even 20-30 times a day), mostly with an empty page (#argh this page was closed), sometimes the program closes by itself, I restart it, it goes for some minutes or even less, and the the problems are back again.
I tried many solutions: I reinstalled it, I tried the safe modus (it crashes thesame way), disinstalled all the plug ins. disintalled the firefox accelerator. tried windows10 compatibility solutions, I created a new profile. i have the latest version, of course.
I have these issues ONLY with firefox. maybe is the 64 bits version? my laptop is 2 year old.
it does not get any better with the above solutions.
below the copy of a mozilla crash report (there are many I just picked one)
could you please help? what can i Do?
thanks a lot merlino
