Everything was running JUST FINE before i turned on my laptop to find things had changed without my permission. Im just a basic man, not an I.T SPECIALIST. I just want to get on the net, thats it! Is that too much to ask seeing that with free will we chose Firefox, but its no better than any Microsoft crap. Takes hours to correct, if at all what these fools do to my routine online after their stupid updates. These fools must expect that everyone is a qualified proffessional who has plenty of time to fix this update mess. Its not the case FYI Firefox staff. And this stuff has been going on for years too and looks set to never end. Why cant my home page remain the same because guess what, it WAS working great until this so called update. What a mess.Firefox have caused me.

How the hell do i get my ORIGINAL, UNALTERED HOME PAGE BACK? Home tab disapeared as well which is common i see and has been going on for years now without an end in sight.. We seem to be the ones wiping Firefoxs arses, like little babies.

JUST SOME FRIENDLY INTELLIGENT ADVICE. HOW ABOUT DOING UPDATES WITHOUT TURNING EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN. Probably too much common sense for people today. Best thing is to just keep this internet to a minimum or you will be tearing youre out regularly.

Thanks Firefox for wasting my time on numerous occasions. Im very grateful for your expertise.

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

Greetings.

Whenever I click on a link to Facebook, the page manipulates the browser history, effectively disabling the back button by adding multiple instances of the same page. I read that Google addressed this issue with Chrome a while back, but I don't find anything about a fix for Firefox. Is there one?

Thank in advance. Bill

I noticed ever since I updated to FF ver 85 I started seeing screen tearing when scrolling. This is most noticeable when scrolling through a list of videos or pictures. This only happens on Fire Fox. I do not experience this problem on Chrome. I have already disabled Hardware Acceleration. Made no difference. I'm currently on FF version 86.

Anything else I can try to resolve this issue?

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

My download speed has been *very slow* lately and I cannot figure out why. My Internet speed is around 3.3 MB/s, but Firefox is downloading files at around 40-80KB/s. Nothing else on my system is downloading/uploading at all, and it's only Firefox that seems to have this issue. If anyone has potential solutions, I'd love to hear them.

YouTube does not work properly.

Before I start, I must mention that I have tried Chrome, Brave and Edge. None of the others have had this problem and I can confidently say that this only happens with Firefox and Firefox Nightly as well.

Something that I should also mention is I have security.enterprise_roots.enabled set to true in about:config. This is because when it's set to false, Any google related webpage shows a Potential Security Warning. I don't know if this has anything to do with the issue I am having with YouTube but I still wanted to mention it.

Finally, the problem - Firefox and Firefox Nightly both get stuck on loading whenever I click on anything on YouTube. Be it the Channel Icon to go to the channel or a video or even the search bar. Anything that should take me to the next page gets stuck. Screenshot is attached. The only way to open the video or the page is to reload it or to stop the loading enter the link and then manually do it every time I need to click on something in YouTube. I have reinstalled Firefox. Reset everything. Even reinstalled windows. But the issue persists. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Firefox 89.0 for MAC is a disaster. Tab toolbar is above the URL bar -- Horrendous. Worse yet, is that tabs and links are loading SO SLOWLY!!! I have deleted history and cache. Have rebooted and reloaded. Still a mess. Can I go back to previous Firefox? How do I do that? Is there a way to fix the slow load. I am just hating this new situation. A total mess.

This is actually an issue with my wife's Windows 10 computer.

It was working fine earlier today - I was on it doing something. Then, still running, , I right-clicked on a link to open in a new tab, and a new tab opened and nothing loaded. Thought I'd made a mistake and typed in an address. Nothing. Then it started working with me doing nothing more.

Now my wife brings the computer over, and she's having the problem. Even if I try to load tools or options or addons, or type about:config - nothing loads. Just a blank tab. I can open tabs to my heart's content. Just can't put content in them.

Internet is fine and other browsers are working fine accessing the web.

Firefox has the same problem in safe mode, or if refreshed, by the way.

Hello community,

I had some problems with my internet connection. Youtube streams changed frequently their video quality. So I wanted to look up my downstream. To do that I have look into my browser and type the URL "http://fritz.box" into it.

The message I got was that this is not possible anymore (uploaded pic). I had to do it with Google Chrome. That's a disgrace for Mozilla.

I hope it will be possible soon again to surf into my router UI.


Sincerely yours

Mario

After seeing so many problems with ver 89 reported here, and with my own font display problems, I still forgot to remind my wife not to update firefox on her pc.

So, she updated, started using, then firefox crashed. After killing task, firefox loaded up on a white blank window. Troubleshoot mode or whatever also gives a blank, even after restarting windows.

Uninstalled 89, downloaded ver 88 and installed. Had to say goodbye to her bookmarks, saved login etc. To my horror, when I went into options to disable auto update, it was already downloading 89! Even after changing it and exiting firefox, it still updated to 89!

Uninstalled 89 and reinstalled 88 again. Disconnected internet before running firefox so that I could change the update setting first. What a hassle. Can someone with powers here tell firefox devs to not beat the purpose of reverting to previous versions...

Been a loyal Firefox user since the time of Netscape... Really sad to see another very problematic version... Hope the mvp volunteers and top contributors here can compile our issues and submit to the devs...
