I have been unable to figure out how I've managed to make my addons no work properly.

I've tried running them in debug mode, but I'm not particularly adept in debugging addons.

I've reset Firefox back to default a few times, addons seem okay, and then as soon as my Firefox account syncs and installs my installed addons they go back to wonky.

I can't seem to attach images RN, Firefox (Nightly) crashes every time I click on the button.

The behavior can be described as the addons when clicked have a blank page as their contents, and some addons (Like Dark Reader) just have like a sliver of a drop down with no contents.

If you'd like me to grab some debug data from wherever just let me know.

Issue with Firefox Nightly

Hi, I've been using Nightly due to the stable version of Firefox having stutter/performance issues that doesn't seem to occur in Nightly (something to do with Vsync and/or FPS on high refresh rate gaming monitors perhaps? This can be seen on testufo.com as well as in general when scrolling pages).

The issue I'm having with Nightly is that it often leaves background processes open in Task Manger after exiting. This does not occur in stable as far as I can tell. These background processes are causing issues when trying to update Nightly via the menu, as Nightly closes and tries to update but the background processes remain. The only thing to do is to kill the processes (sometimes as many as 20 of them) and then Nightly is able to update by itself and restart.

I've noticed that the command line for some of these processes show links that I have clicked from outside of Nightly (In Discord for example), but the processes do not immediately appear when clicking links and seem to appear at random while using the browser. Some of them also show stuff along the lines of "contentprocess" and "gecko-crash-server-pipe" which seems to be normal firefox.exe processes that run in the foreground, perhaps before being "converted" into background processes which in turn won't close.

Another thing I've noticed is when these background processes exist, it causes lag and other issues in, as well as a huge delay when clicking links outside of Nightly.

This has been going on for about a month (through all the daily updates) since I've installed Nightly. I've tried disabling add-ons, refreshing, and even completely uninstalling, wiping all traces of, and reinstalling Nightly, to no avail.

I'm using Nightly (Version 82.0a1 (2020-08-25) (64-bit)) and recently the browser has started flickering. It doesn't come from the add-ons and I tried a full reset without any improvement. The weird thing is that starting in safe mode doesn't seem to suffer from that flickering issue but since I did a full reset it shouldn't be so different ? Anyway, do you have any solution for me ?

Thx.

I have a DNS resolver running on my router, and I had reports from users on my network that after upgrading to nightly 77 they were no longer able to access any intranet domains, I have tested this as well and it would appear that all intranet domains are trying to do search results, this is causing issues as clients(whom I do not own or control their computer) need to access my captive portal prior to gaining internet access and their search fails.

I installed 77.0a1 and CPU usage is through the roof. Nightly used to idle at 20-40 energy consumption units in macOS, which is a lot, but as soon as I updated it jumped to 200, and 150% cpu usage in a 4 core system. The fan is blowing at full speed, and about:performance doesn't tell me anything useful, as usual.

I need to downgrade but I can't find a catalog of older nightly builds.

I am currently using Firefox nightly desktop build. Every day you are releasing 2 updates but there is no clear changelogs for the updates. Same is the case for Firefox preview developer version. Can i have some transparency on the changelogs? Or is it just fake updates released daily? The version number is also same. No change in that. Only date is changing.
