I've recently started seeing Firefox not displaying correctly. This includes the page itself as well as the tabs. Letters will be missing, colors incorrect, as well as just being illegible as in the images provided. Image 1 - tab names missing and the green color is not the correct one for that part of the page. Image 2 - Get Help menu options unreadable along with tab names missing.

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

Hi, long time listener first time caller.

A site that I visit quite regularly, https://www.bunnings.com.au/ , has suddenly stopped loading in the Firefox browser. Below is a screenshot of the webpage as it loads now. I have run the "Troubleshoot firefox" and disabled all add-ons and still no go. Firefox is up to date (new up date today 22/04/2021- Australia) All other sites I visit load fine. https://www.bunnings.com.au/ loads with no issues in Chrome (I don't use Chrome because I find it less customisable than Firefox) I have been using Mozilla since the Netscape Navigator days. The error message is in the very top left corner. You can see the chat window loads but can't be accessed. Browser version is 88.0 (64bit)

Hope you can help

Thanks

So the issue is if I navigate to a certain page it starts to load but takes 60-90 seconds to complete. The page in question is: https://www.walmart.com/co/Wrangler-Men-apos-s-Regular-Fit-Jeans-2-Pack/19759033

I have tried this with all Add-ons disabled and also in full Troubleshooting Mode, but it always does the same thing. The pages starts to load but the indicator in the tab keeping going for 60+ seconds before it finally completes.

I see the issue with Firefox 88.0 on Windows 10, and also with Firefox Nightly on my Amazon Fire table but there I got a Warning: Unresponsive script error .... ..... .... Script: https://i5.walmartimages.com/d...4e97-a031-6d8ef8af50bc.v198.ja:1. Seemed to be okay with Firefox Nightly on my Samsung phone, but it might be because it does not load that specific page. Also seems to be okay with Opera and Edge.

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...

So for a few weeks now I've had this problem come up multiple times. I notice that the browser is slowly getting more and more unresponsive while switching tabs and eventually it stops completely. I get a loading symbol in the middle of the tab, even on previously loaded ones. I can't switch tabs anymore, but I can open a new tab once per Firefox. I can open as many windows as I want, they all just show a white page and the search bar is unclickable.

I don't get any error message from my computer nor Firefox. Restarting the computer (because I don't want to lose my tabs) solves the issue and it becomes perfectly responsive again, but it takes ~2 minutes to shut down, when it usually takes at most 20 seconds, because Firefox is not closing properly.

I also didn't add any new add-ons before the issue started appearing.

Now I wouldn't mind a restart here and there if I wasn't working as much as I do in the browser. So if anyone has an idea where to look for a solution I'd very much appreciate it.

I have a specific problem...Firefox will not load a particular web site which it previously did for years. I have refreshed and reinstalled with no solution.

Here is my story (nightmare)... When I try to launch my credit union, Navy Federal, the following appears on my screen.

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server. Reference #18.859ec817.1618087497.20456bf6

I can launch other web sites with Firefox AND i can launch Navy Federal with other browsers. On subsequent attempts to launch Navy FCU, I always get the same Access Denied message, however, the Reference # changes. THANK YOU!!
