Firefox blocks a bank account. Bank says it is not their fault. Bank account can be accessed using a different browser. Bank account can also be accessed using Firefox on another computer. Tried to refresh Firefox and gained access to the bank account but it worked only once or twice before Firefox went back to blocking it.

Since two days I can't connect to any websites or getting options page directly. Enter about:config, about:preferences also doesnt work in the url bar. (The url is also suggesting theses pages.)

I already reset Firefox, changed the profile, cache cleared. Event a full purge with apt purge firefox and removing any firefox files didnt resolved my problem.

If I'm clicking in the top right menu>preferences, this doesnt launch the tab.

The only thing working is passing by the top right menu>help>troubleshooting informations. Only on this page I can replace about:support by about:preferences in the url bar and now I can get the preferences... If I try to enter a url like google.com in the same place, it's loading but spinning indefinitely.

Firefox is the only browser getting this kind of problem.

Downgrading to 86.0 release or use developper edition didnt work.

It's the first time in so many years that I'm getting this. I don't know where the solution can be.

Thanks by advance.

a similar problem in a browser installed with apt (but when running in safe mode, there is no problem, and manually disabling extensions and cleaning / refreshing firefox, does not help). When installing via snap, there is no such thing, but it does not suit me for work, since there is a problem with profiles.

I would be very grateful for your help in solving this problem.

Hello together,

when implementing canvas graphics with 2D context, I notified that the latest FF 87.0 on windows is much slower than chrome/edge/opera on windows and also much slower as safari on mac. I drilled into detail and detected that it was caused when drawing polygons with color gradient (see attached image). Means that using canvascontext.createLinearGradient() instead of flat colors makes it slow. On the other hand using flat colors is perfectly fast.

I wondered, because I had much better experience with FF and installed an earlier version (78.9.0esr) on the same windows workstation and the problem was gone. Seams, that some change made the newer FF slower with this type of graphic..

CPU is i7 8650U 1.90 - 2.11 GHZ, OS is Windows 10 version 20H2

But the effect is the same on all windows workstations I tested. Would be happy to see, that I can use FF again with these type of graphic apps.

Firefox 87 on Linux Mint 20.1 opens nothing, including about: and local files

Hello!

I've upgraded my PC to Mint 20.1 and applied the latest upgrade to Firefox 87 also. Prior to these last upgrades I could use Firefox, ie after upgrade to Mint 20.1 Firefox worked then, after applying the latest upgrades in the Mint Upgrade Manager, including a Firefox one, it did not.

Now Firefox will not open any pages anywhere. This includes the about:preferences page (thus obviating almost all advice I've seen) and even a local two-line "Hello world" HTML page in my local Documents directory.

Nothing displays at all, not even an address in the address bar (unless I type one in but that makes no difference). See the attached, unexciting, screenshot. Things I've tried already:

  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Restarting with add-ins disabled
  • Clearing the cache
  • Copying over a profile into the .Mozilla folder from a version that worked before the upgrade
  • Deleting and reinstalling from scratch
  • Trying the first four items again on the fresh reinstall
  • Installing V85 (which works on my laptop)
  • Trying the first four items yet again on V85
  • Installing V84, which was the version prior to the upgrade on my PC
  • Going back to V87 fresh then re-starting Linux in safe mode and trying again
  • Looking at the traffic in Wireshark (didn't really help, that one)
  • Shouting at the screen (was even less helpful than Wireshark)

In no case is there any change in behaviour. The only thing that will display is the "troubleshooting" page and I attach here the text from that.

Am I the only person to have experienced this lately? Similar reports for much older versions exists but they're mostly for Windows so no use to me.

So -- can anyone suggest anything? Bear in mind I can't get to any about: pages nor do any web developer options work.

All the best

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread

ClearType was off in 16.0 and earlier. If it can't be turned I will have to revert.
