Hi. So I have installed Firefox Nightly on my Windows laptop. The browser refuses to start up after restarting post update. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser and even using a whole new profile to eliminate the obvious causes. The behaviour is not predictable. Sometimes it occurs after the first update post installation and sometimes later after 3-4 update cycles but it does happen for certain. If it is of importance, my laptop is locked down by my company's IT admin to prevent software installations. So when I have to install Nightly using the msi, he puts in his password. I am just wondering if that is what is messing with the Mozilla Maintenance Service trying to update the Nightly installation.

For days I was noticing that, after exiting sleep mode for at least a couple hours, Firefox would open up with the spinning wheel and would be completely frozen. Frequently I'd have to reboot and re-open in Safe Mode, because it wouldn't force quit. Then I'd disable the plugins when I had it open. But eventually I had to re-activate this plugin in order to stream content. I don't know 100% if this is causing the problem. Is anyone else having issues with this plugin and if so, is there a simple way to fix/debug?

Why is Firefox blocking Flickr and Tumblr without my permission.

I reinstalled Google Chrome as a proxy and then was able to login but a day later I was blocked again since Firefox is the default browser on my PC. Frustrating to say the least. Firefox does not have carte blanche authority to block sites without consulting these sites' customers first. The URL shield is grey and when I switch it off it has the line through it but still will not load.

Suggestions please?

I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

Hi... I am using the latest version of Firefox (88.0) for my 64 bit Dell laptop. I have checked a few times over a period of weeks in settings, General section, the box marked as - Always check if Firefox is your default browser is checked. Underneath this line I see one line with a smiley icon indicating it is NOT. I have several times gone through the process to make it my default browser and, when checking that it is, it ALWAYS displays as the default browser. So... I have no idea why this line continues to be displayed. Anyone have any thoughts? I can find no info on this issue.. thanks Brian

Some web pages take over 60 seconds to load completely

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.

Hi, Once upon a time, when restarting a session, closed with some pages still open, Firefox was proposing the list of all pages that were open at the termination moment, asking to CHOOSE which pages we wanted in this new session. That feature was very very useful, allowing a fast closing, and a 'meditated' and comfortable restart.

Now, from a couple of years, it seems that the only choice is to have back ALL the pages again, or none... Is maybe this useful old setting hidden somewhere ? Thank you for your help... I find irritating loosing features in updates !

I updated to the current version, and ever since then, The Weather Channel website will not load and every time goes to OOPS! Cannot Find Page. Every single time, but in other browsers it loads just fine. Any thoughts?

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks
