This only happens using Firefox for Android. I will be typing a password into a website log in, and partway through, the cursor will jump a space to the left, causing the incorrect pword to be put in. This is driving me crazy! And I can't seem to find much out there for support on it. I have galaxy s3 jellybean, Sprint. Also using SwiftKey. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since installing Firefox 56.0.2 recently I have repeatedly experienced slowdowns or complete failure to load. Error message reads: "The intruction at 0x..... referenced memory at 0x00000000... The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program."

I appreciate that there is a long history of complaints about this problem, and suggestions offered to remedy it. None of them work for me.

I cannot avoid the problem by opening Firefox in Safe Mode. Several times I have uninstalled Firefox several times, made sure to download the appropriate version for my system (Win 7, 64-bit), deleted Mozilla files in the Program Files and Program Files (x86) folders and then attempted a Clean Reinstall. I have run anti-virus and malware checks without identifying anything. Also did a Windows System Restore without success. Still the problem continues, regardless (but does not affect Firefox on my Apple Mac). Cannot find any fresh suggestions online so I would much appreciate some help with this.

I am attempting to sync my mobile phone with my laptop. All I get is a message invalid format. There is no suggestion of what a valid phone format is with United States. What is a valid phone number format for the United States.

EDIT:

I found the answer in another post on the main Firefox forum. I explain it in my post below. (2019.08.03 T11:08 CDT)

I consider the question answered.

Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

I have noticed that there hasn't been an app for the Surface where I can download firefox. I do a lot of school work and I need to use firefox for some of it. It would be extremely helpful and popular if you could make a firefox app compatible with the Surface.

Hi - I wonder if anyone can shed some light on this issue I've been having with Android Firefox?

Whenever I press the 'menu' key on my phone while running FF (tried with 16 and beta/17), the application crashes immediately. I briefly see my Android homescreen, then the FF page asking me to submit a crash report to Mozilla. I've done this, of course, and one of the links is attached.

I'm a bit surprised that I have not been able to find any mention on the interwebs about this issue. Perhaps someone can let me know what's going on?

Cheers Charlie

This is actually happening on other browsers as well. I've reinstalled, uninstalled & tried An older versions. Nothing seems to work, any suggestions?

Recently, whenever I try to save any downloaded file via SaveAs, the keyboard generates random characters when pressing the keys.

For example, I can press the "a" key ten times in a row and the filename could end up "a4vhg67hu1".

I have tried fully uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Firefox and NOT copying my profile back over. So, on a fresh install it still has the same filename issue with the keyboard.

Nowhere else on my system does this nonsense happen, only on Firefox.

I have Win 10 64-bit v1903

Thank you,

Bill

I have been using a very old version of firefox on my desktop. Now I want to update it, but to somehow keep an installation of a pre-webextension version. IIRC two different installations can't live within the same Windows, so I'm looking for a portable installation of the old version. (Running a second instance of the same installation is no help).

The problem is that I already have an updated portable app on my usb stick. I am wondering, if I save an old, portable firefox (on a separate folder) on the same usb stick that already has a portable firefox installation, will it cause any trouble to either?
