Whenever I launch Firefox my Graphics Drivers temporarily stop working. I get a balloon message on the taskbar, saying they are not working, then screen reloads and after third prompt all is then good to go and I can start browsing.

This has just recently started. I have uninstalled and then re installed, no difference.

It is rather annoying. I have version 83.0

Thanks

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

Firefox - Frequent, frustrating hangs and lockups on new PC

I was lucky enough to be able to buld a new PC recently, Running Windows 10 Pro on a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X rig, Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and 32gb of RAM. Nvidia Gforce 1070 GPU (stand in until I can get better in the new year) Should easily be enough to run Firefox right? Apparently not.

Performance in Firefox is little better than it was on my old rig, (which was still lousy). The browser constantly freezes and locks up, not responding at all to mouse clicks between tabs or on the page. It is especially common when a website opens a file requester, such as when I'm working on my website in Wordpress, but it also happens when working with downloads or seemingly randomly too (my downloads folder is on the C drive and always accessble).

I've tried disabling all plugins (I only have 3, Privacy Badger, Facebook container and Sticky Password), I don't see what point there is in resetting the profile as I only got this computer 3 days ago.

Regards software that might conflict, I run Malwarebytes anti-malware and DisplayFusion but I've tried disabling the latter and still no joy.

I really don't want to Chrome but it's leaving me little choice here. Is there anything else I can try? Thunderbird on the same PC works perfectly.

Hello, when I print www page from Firefox using "Foxit PhantomPDF Printer", sometimes only first page of document is generated and then I get "Print preview error - An error occurred while printing." (Generated file opens in Foxit PhantomPDF and contains the first page of the printed www page.) If I try to print the same www page again (immediately after), it is always successful and all pages of the www page are printed. What is the reason of this strange behavior? It happens only sometimes and only on some www pages. I don't know if it is caused by Foxit or by Firefox because the error dialog box contains no information who threw the error.

The top of the Firefox screen disappears including the Menu, URL and the Bookmark bars, and is covered by a white un-clickable area. If Outlook is the window below Firefox and the location where the close "X" in Firefox is clicked, Outlook will close.

The solution discovered is to reboot Windows. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox with a new downloaded version, and running sfc /scannow, but these were not successful. A few times, the same problem was seen in Chrome and it may be a Windows issue and not a Firefox bug. The problem is typically seen once or twice a day. It is not a problem that turning off full-screen will solve.

One post with this problem was found on a search from 2017 but the thread was closed.

Any suggestions for a permanent fix would be most welcome.

Hi,

My computer shut down when it was in the process of re-opening my previous last session. I looked in the profile folder... It has the recovery, previous, and upgrade json files available. Every time I try to restore these files via Library > History... it just keeps on talking about the bookmarks. I need those specific sites open up as it was for my studies. Yes, some of them date back a couple months and was going to go through them. I just was wishing someone could help me restore this data.

I did check this website:

https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It seems like the files seems to be working? I'm not entirely 100% sure, but I see information there on websites and such that I had opened up. Not direct links.

Further, I do know that the previous was the last one that was closed properly. It's just the one that have "recovery" are the smaller files that don't retain any information.

I tried looking at available topics and pages on windows, but none seem to solve my problem. I would appreciate it if someone can help me as I feel like I am missing one last step or doing it incorrectly on how to open these files, again.

Thank you for all the help in advance. I do really appreciate it as I need these tabs restored. >.<

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Bookmark this page process has changed (Firefox v83.0 Mac). I cannot choose where to save the bookmark because no screen appears where I can navigate to or select a destination. Then when I try to edit this bookmark, the edit screen only flashes briefly and disappears, giving me no means of editing the name or destination.

This has been occurring for 2 days as of 12/03/20.

Hi all, my daughter has found out that with Pinned Tabs she can work around the site-specific time limits I have set inside a parental control product (on windows10).

Normally the parental control just closes tabs that display a forbidden or over-used web URL. But as Pinned Tabs have no close button it seems to fail. It only reports "time is over".

Is there a way to disable Pinned Tabs ? In about:config maybe?

Thanks and best regards Daniel

Ever since evolving past the 70's version, "Print to PDF" from Firefox has had sporadic problems. I have now three times "upgraded" to various 80's series releases and though sometimes Print to PDF works, it more often fails. Once again i have "downgraded" to a 70's release, and i do not experience flaws.

I have posted at least twice of the issue, yet no one is able, or has done anything, about it. Fine. But to keep getting that annoying "New version available" notification is as irritating as malware, especially since "upgrading" will cause the system to malfunction, and the choice to spend time by your programmers to eliminate a safe internal method to disable this is very confusing; why was the decision made to eliminate the option to turn that annoyance off, creating an annoyance when the only time one would turn upgrades off would be when there was a malfunction with a release?

I did find the external registry fix, which, compared to pre early 60's releases having the setting, was a waste of my time to find, but more importantly, added an outside element of a breach of security. I do not understand the reasoning in the development team's thought process.

First, when i go to youtube, and sign in, it will show in some panels to sign in, even though im signed in in the top right of youtube, and youtube doesnt fully recognize that im signed in, and because of that, i cant add videos to playlists(because youtube thinks im not signed in). However other browsers dont have this problem and they work perfectly. I have tried with all the extras unninstalled (they were blocking ads and stuff) and it still happens. Second problem is not that impactful, but sometimes when i open a new tab my monitor turns black, with a big thrust of white in the center appearing and dispearing rapidly, and monitor only comes back from black when i click away, or by waiting a considerable amount of time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and it didnt fix any of the issues.

***************************** The problem When I start firefox I see a blank page (this was not my starting page before the problem occured)(Image linked).

The overall graphical window is not frozen but I can't open any webpage nor any local file. The option pages don't work either nor any of the about:XXX pages.

*************************** What I tired I cleared my cookie/cache. I tried firefox's safe mode. I refreshed firefox. I deleted my profile and created a new profile. I desactivated all my security software. I ran firefox with root privilege. Updated windows. None of that did solved the problem.

This problem persisted after I haved uninstalled Firefox, deleted my profile, deleted all mozilla directories in ProgramData, AppData, Program, cleaned up my disk with window's 10 utilitary and reinstalled firefox (I also tried a simple install unistall so I don't think I broke firefox by deleting files). When reinstalling firefox I tried both a 64 and a 32 bits install with current and older version none worked.

I scanned my PC for malwares, nothing found. I checked my memory as suggested in a troobleshooting page, (no problem found).

Firefox DOES WORKS in window's safe mode.

************************************ Observations I noticed via my firewall that firefox don't even send any package to the internet if I try to acess a website. Firefox does however acces 127.0.0.1 (at least it asks for permission). Firefox doesn't close if I use top right red cross, it does close if, in task bar I right click/close all windows or if I exit within the "three horizontal bar menu" I precise that my connection is ok and that MS Edge is working fine.

I repeat, Firefox works in window's safe mode.

I would really appreciate your help as I can't find any other thing to try.
