I have noticed that my Firefox browser has become so slow that it is nearly unusable.

I have noticed that Mozilla has been offering their VPN for $5/month. Has the company slowed down the browser to sell this feature?

Or is there something in the Microsoft updates that have slowed down the browser.

I really like Firefox but I have reverted Chrome simply to get my work done without waiting for Firefox to load. I really am not a big fan of Google and I really find Microsoft to be, well, Microsoft.

Several days ago (approximately 12-3-20) my Internet Download Manager add-on stopped working. Removing it and reinstalling it by using a link provided by IDM does not work. It will work only if I open the webpage where I intend to download (e.g.--YouTube) BEFORE I reinstall the add-on and only for as long as that page remains open. Closing the page and then reopening it somehow deactivates IDM, as it will no longer link to the video I want to download. Have tried everything i can think of to solve this, including deactivating all other add-ons and by uninstalling and reinstalling the IDM program itself. I also unchecked the "block popup windows" management tool within Firefox itself. Anyone have any ideas what is happening? Initially, I also received the error message added below, but as far as i can tell, none of my other programs are set to block IDM. The error message no longer appears.

i have used Firefox for years never an issue.

3 or 4 days ago the audio stopped working for no reason. the audio works fine on google chrome, Microsoft edge, video files but not on firefox?

autoplay is set to "allow audio and video" a youtube video plays but no sound. i did notice if i set autoplay to " block audio video" nothing happened, the video played yet no audio. volume mixer shows Mozilla firefox but no sound. what is going on, this is beyond me.

When viewing a job on Indeed, whether on a pane or a separate tab, the application menu fails to load when I click 'Apply Now'. The connection times out after a while. It even takes an awful time to go back (reload) to the page!

When I reported this Indeed Support, they recommended using Google Chrome as their site "tends to work best on it". I can now confirm that the issue does not arise with Chrome.

I have tried pretty much everything on this page: Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

I even reinstalled Firefox but it is so smart, it realized the fact and prompted me to refresh and now we are back where we left off.

Recently Firefox is randomly closing automatically after downloading a file from Yahoo business mail. This happens only with Yahoo business mail and not with other websites. So, when downloading a file from other websites (gmail, etc.) everything is O.K. This happened recently when Yahoo updated its software. Also, happens only with Firefox (for example with Chrome is everything O.K.).

For a couple of days I cannot get Firefox to run normally again. It is stuck in a weird looking state as showed in the screencap attached. It opens and I can click on some buttons from the interface but I cannot close it or enter settings, cannot browse or anything, it opens but its functionality is completely broken... I suspect this is following a recent windows update but I'm not sure...

Tried starting it in safe mode and refreshing the browser but it did not work. about:config does not work. I can type in the address bar but when I hit enter nothing happens.

Any suggestions of how could this be fixed without reinstalling it?

Thanks.

Hello.

I am using Ubuntu 21.04 and after the upgrade I got different issues with Mozilla products. FF is: 88.0 64-bit TB is: 78.8.1 (64-Bit)

One is: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile." appears if I click on links in emails. It doesn't matter if they're linked to youtube, are an online version of the email etc. Always the same message.

I tried to assign Firefox as a standard browser and changed to another one, started the system again, ran Thunderbird and Firefox and it still happened. I tried changing something in the config editor, doesn't help at all. I checked for files / attachments and what should happen with http/https. There's no entry, which is fine according to mozilla help. The settings are the same as before the upgrade. I don't understand why it doesn't work anymore.

And second problem is: When clicking a email link in Firefox it doesn't open in Thunderbird. Error message is: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To use Thunderbird, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, restart your device, or use a different profile."

It also doesn't work if I have run FF and TB in safe mode at the same time or in other constellations (FF in safe mode, TB not and vice versa)

Any other ideas?

Since upgrading my OS to Big Sur (advice: don't!) some issues have arisen. Most printers don't work with it so avoid if it you can but regarding my browsing preferences:

1. I cannot now see Bing maps (which for all its faults I like as it has Ordnance Survey) 2. I can't create a new line of text in BT webmail. When I click return and try to type, it just refuses.

Any thoughts anyone?

Hi. So I have installed Firefox Nightly on my Windows laptop. The browser refuses to start up after restarting post update. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser and even using a whole new profile to eliminate the obvious causes. The behaviour is not predictable. Sometimes it occurs after the first update post installation and sometimes later after 3-4 update cycles but it does happen for certain. If it is of importance, my laptop is locked down by my company's IT admin to prevent software installations. So when I have to install Nightly using the msi, he puts in his password. I am just wondering if that is what is messing with the Mozilla Maintenance Service trying to update the Nightly installation.

Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioKKYKnrniQ

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.
