After Win10 and Firefox installed some updates, Firefox doesn't load any web-pages, infinitly checks for updates and cann't get it, cann't load my router's web interface. Current Firefox' version is 95.0.2 x64. Microsoft Edge works properly. I have already turned on and off Windows' firewall (I have no other firewalls) and restarted system.

Just out of the blue my browser stopped loading pages. I went through all the processes recommended here and none worked. With the browser open now, its using a high amount of CPU and the power usage is Very High. Nothing is open because it won't load anything. No error messages, just stuck with the little dot going side to side. I used chrome to download and install an update, but still nothing.

Help :(

A few days ago there was a Firefox update and this morning suddenly GeckoMain started (out of nowhere) using the CPU at 80% (which lead to the CPU fan going nuts). I opened the gnome system monitor and it showed that GeckoMain was overusing the CPU. There's also a process running called "Privileged Content". For as long as this additional process is running, Firefox is behaving as if there were no internet access - infinite time to load any page and if left undisturbed, after a while Firefox closes with a crash message. Also, for as long as this problem is happening, simply closing Firefox with the X button doesn't close it - GeckoMain is still running and the only way to actually close the browser is "killall GeckoMain". So I removed all extensions one by one in order to make sure it's not an extension causing this. It's not. Even after removing all extensions the problem continued which lead me to believe something in my prefs.js is causing it. There were so many things modified in about:config over the years that I have no idea which one might be causing the problem. I have uploaded the prefs.js file here, so that you can review it, if needed: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1j-EAaeBrcawRfzrIr4n9Pg6IyvM9zROV/view?usp=sharing

At the moment I'm writing this question through Waterfox bc Firefox is unuseable with this problem.

I was browsing without any problem when suddenly just firefox on my PC stops being able to load any pages.

I tried clearing the startup cache and it managed to work once but when I checked firefox to install the latest version, the problem returned. Now even the version check is in infinite loading.

Troubleshooting mode is the same, so it is not addon related.

When I close firefox, the process lingers on the task manager for a while until it gives the firefox has crashed window. Even that seems to have a difficulty in sending its error report

Is there any way to deal with this? I do not want to use the refresh firefox option cause its sounds like it will remove my add-ons

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, and it's unable to play videos on Amazon.com & Netflix.com. Neither did the one before 96.0. I first saw this on Netflix.com and when the tech started asking questions about my operating system, I knew they had pulled a fast one. Now Amazon.com has done the same thing with Firefox. This browser should be hiding the underlying operating system, because it's not necessary. I can use both websites with Chrome and have no issue. The same version of Firefox is on my laptop, but it has no problems because that thing is on Windows 10.

I won't bother with all the nonsense written about troubleshooting, because this is strictly the functionality of those websites peeking under the browser to check the O.S. Firefox needs to fix this hole immediately! You're messing with my money now. Monopolies shouldn't be able to control our hardware like this; they're not paying for any of it.

Oh, my TV is having a problem with the apps, so I was forced to watch videos with my computer instead. My laptop screen is too small and can't have my booming speakers connected to it. My desktop monitor is 34".

Firefox has no idea it's online anymore. It just pretends it's working.

This started a short time ago. I had walked away from my system for a bit (which I do frequently throughout the day with no issues). When I returned, Firefox didn't know it was online. I tried Waterfox, it worked fine. Well, I need Firefox, so I closed out of Firefox to reboot it. It briefly worked for one page. Then it promptly forgot it was online.

I rebooted the entire system. Firefox boots but otherwise is completely unresponsive to typing URLs, choosing URLs from bookmarks or favorites or whatever. I'm now writing this through Waterfox. But I can't use Waterfox because I'd have to import every last password, every last everything. I can't work this way.

What's wrong with Firefox? Why doesn't it know how to do anything online anymore? It doesn't give an error message, it just sits and pretends it's doing something, but it does nothing.

I have hours of work and no way to do anything. I don't know how to recover Firefox from this mess.

I can't even begin to guess at the Firefox version here because it's attempting to update, which of course it can't because it doesn't remember it's online. It should be the latest one as of sometime earlier, no idea when. It updates automatically.

Thank you for your time.

Please advise what I need to do to make Firefox work again. Have not changed any settings. I noticed it had stopped working as I was listening to radio via web, and there was sudden silence. Then discovered I could not update ANY websites, not just the one for the radio program. The web pages simply do not load, and they do not stop trying to load. However 0 wrong with internet connection, can browse without any problems using Microsoft (ugh).
