I first noticed this in Overwatch (OW) but also with Diablo 3. These are the only games I play online. OW has a inbuilt tool to look at it's network connection. It shows that about every 5 secs, ping spikes. There might be other stuff happening, like some loss, but I can't say for sure. This translates into choppy gameplay which is unbearable for online FPS. If you look at the attached image, you see that the spikes go to 128 ms. I normally run 44 ms.

This symptom does not start immediately and I haven't been able to check how long it takes to start. It does go away if I close firefox down.

I tried to: - remove all addons - close tabs until only home/empty tab was left - removing/reinstalling firefox.

Nothing really worked.

I am running the latest version of Windows 10 (1803) with the latest version of Firefox 63.0.3. All 64bit.

Multiple clicks (up to 4 or more) are necessary on many links (such as "Your account") on BBC webpages to get a response. Sometimes the subsequent page loads with jumbled text or completely blank. iPlayer programmes frequently fail to start when clicked. NO OTHER WEBSITE behaves like this. I have COMPLETELY removed Firefox and freshly installed the latest version (64) 64bit. The same problem is occurring. Disabling Kaspersky Internet Security made no difference. These problems did not occur before Firefox Quantum.

The BBC deny there is a problem. I am using the latest version of Windows 10.

Hi,

this is my second post for today and again it concerns the Web-Console. The first screenshot is taken from the official Mozilla doku (doku_ff.jpg) and the second is what I see whwn opening the console on my page.

Contrary to the official docu the console does not show the concerned lines of the javascript errors - only the number it happens. ( line two screenshot - underlined red).

How can I find out what lines are concerned?

Very glad for help and wishing the best for the coming new year.

p I have taken great pains to opt out of all these privacy sharing websites such as mylife.com. However, if I type my name in the search bar in my Firefox browser immediately on the top an non-existent listing for me from mylife .com appears with my name, age and location prominently displayed for all to see. Please remove this. There is no page. I want my identity protected and my privacy restored.

I am very upset with Firefox when C Google was able to do this easily with information I provided on a dedicated page.

I had been using firefox for years without a problem and all of the sudden today it started crashing. first it was the newly opened tabs but now even about:home crashes, about:addons crashes, Tried uninstalling and deleting APPDATA mozilla folders, still same problem. If I manually type www.google.com it gets there no problem but once I hit search it crashes. I submitted few crash reports bp-5361b127-3a0e-4a53-bfca-f96e00181213 bp-1ed948b2-9c81-4062-810c-7e1090181213 I am getting this in the report ' jsimd_idct_islow_avx2' but earlier it was a different message. Recently ORIGIN got updated and I installed logitech setpoint to connect my keyboard to the receiver and then I uninstalled setpoint and all logitech software related to mouse and keyboard. Sidenote I just clicked on Search Mozilla Support for this signature and it got me to the website without crashing.

Please let me know if you need any additional information. Thank You

Firefox automated update breaks it. After it is broken, downloaded Firefox compressed file firefox-64.0.tar.bz2 twice. Extracted to Downloads directory. Wouldn't run after extraction and running Firefox binary. Twice. Downloaded. Extracted. Wouldn't run. Broken. From the directory of the extracted binary, tried to run the firefox binary from a terminal. Native Mozilla Iceweasel runs instead. The following is the output: knoppix@Microknoppix:~/Downloads/firefox$ firefox (process:4452): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion `sys_page_size == 0' failed FoxyProxy settingsDir: /home/knoppix/.mozilla/firefox/lllxrd8r.default-1529708858245/foxyproxy.xml I have Knoppix 7.2.0 in perfect health. Before automatic update, firefox used to run. Tor browser based on Firefox runs. Google Chrome based on Firefox runs. Everything else runs. This is for your information. Sent messages to forum and community. No response.

Regards,
Rajib

Went back in history to when one particular website would load and now get an error message on that. This is since the last update. Tried a couple other browsers. Worked fine. Tried the fix recommended by Firefox. Did nothing. (Something to do with proxy settings.)

Now when I search, I get Amazon almost all of the time instead of a variety of options.

Is Firefox now beholden to Amazon?

I used to really really like Firefox and have been using it for years. Is it time to switch to Google Chrome?

Using FF 64 on a Win10/64bit.

All other browsers work fine (IE/Chrome/edge) i think (!) after windows10 update (the 'october update') i just installed since PC just came out of box... it stopped working. PC has been on and used with FF for few days already, had no problems, synced bookmarks fine etc.

Now: - no url loaded if entered manually - no url loaded if selected from bookmarks - no settings page loaded most of times. - sometimes (!) i can load "options/preferences" - i can never load about: functions

Checked and done so far without luck: - re-install (removed, restarted, checked for removal of Mozilla directory, installed) - created new profile - checked proxy settings in settings : manual / no proxy - checked windows firewall settings and even defaulted them etc - started in 'safe modus' (no extensions loaded) - not using 'offline' modus

anybody? i've spent a few hours now and near close to leaving it and using Chrome...
