The behavior began with fifteen to twenty crash messages appearing. After which the browser would stop responding and be unable to reach out to the internet.

Network connectivity was confirmed as I was able to access my VPN and corporate teams.

I submitted as many crash reports as I could. Eventually the crash reporter ceased to function. The message is:

Firefox had a problem and crashed. Unfortunately, the crash reporter is unable to submit a report for this crash.

Details: expected value at line 1 column 1

Only a full reboot of the machine restored functionality but only temporarily. It returns after being put into sleep mode.

Running firefox in safe mode does not restore functionality. The behavior persists.

I am fully up to date according to firefox.

I am running a Lenovo Thinkpad Windows 11.

My default search engine is Duck Duck Go. I frequently use a VPN.

I am usually in North America and want to search sites in North America. When I run a search by typing a search term in Firefox, I get results beginning in UK, and I see that a blue toggle switch has been set to UK. (See image.)

This started 2-3 weeks ago.

How do I set things so that my searches begin in North America?

I have checked "about:config" preferences and do not see anywhere that UK is specified. I don't see a region preference setting, either.

Thank you.

Have used Firefox for decades and suddenly it is having problems. If I surf around and have a few tabs open, some of them might crash. Firefox tries to restore them and sometimes it works and sometimes they just crash again immediately. I can go to Amazon and the page won't load completely so I can't do anything. If I try and close Firefox it won't close, it is frozen. And often, pages just load very slowly even though my internet connection is strong. This just started about a month or so ago. I have refreshed Firefox, updated it, and checked the systems on my computer. All my internal diagnostics returned "no issues." So it has to be the program.

Hi,

I factory restarted my computer and reinstalled Firefox. When I signed into my Firefox account, all my bookmarks showed up but none of my tabs were loaded. I figured out how to load my tabs up from my previous session but all my bookmarks then deleted. I tried to re-sync but none of the tabs showed up. When I try to restore my bookmarks from the manage bookmarks library, it does not appear. I do not have a backup file for my bookmarks.

Using Firefox on an ancient Dell with XP to run one IP security camera, It may have succumbed to a software glitch. The message now on startup, after an initial failed attempt to load operating system is: C0000218 Registry File Failure. Registry cannot load Hive File, log, or Alt (Corrupt, Absent, or Not Writable)

What do you suppose can be done to de-glithch the os loading routine, so I can keep it out of the landfill.

Thank you, Tony H

Hello,

OS Windows 10 64 bits Firefox 115.0.7.esr

I have a problem after open my browser with a specific profile and configure the settings about:preferences#privacy, clear history when leaving Firefox is checked, Firefox processes are not completely stopped and cumulate if the operation is replayed.

In the about:config in search fission i have three lines: - "fission.experiment.max-origins.last-disqualified" - "fission.experiment.max-origins.last-qualified" - "fission.experiment.max-origins.qualified"

Could it be the cause?

Thanks for your help.

Almost daily on Firefox, I get pop-ups like the one shown in the attached image. I have, a few times, bought items on MrTortilla's website and that's fine. What I don't want it pop-ups from them daily when I'm not even on their site. Where do I go in Firefox to say, "I'm not open to pop-ups from this site"? Somehow it must be listed as okay. Please don't tell me to delete all cookies because I like the prefills from most of them. If there's a specific cookie I need to delete, please explain how to get to that. Hopefully, it's just a setting somewhere of sites that are allowed to send pop-ups and I can be guided there to remove mrtortilla.com from that list. Thanks!

Hi I recently upgraded to win 11 and was so happy that god listened to me and you've added PIP to your browser!!!!!! but I have few problems.... most of them I fixed on my own... I have the latest release and I'm using for now the developer edition. I used the regular too but I thought that the developer edition will be more stable. and its not... I needed to buy a new graphics card GTX 4060 OC 8GB just so I can see all the streams smooth without lagging I needed to upgrade to 24GB (I had 12) memory so Firefox will not crash my computer all the time. your memory consumption problem is ridicules!!! :(((( added a screen shot I have i7 4 cores. i ordered Intel XEON X5675 6 cores it should arrive in a few days just so it will be more stable. 1.from time to time it still crashes (submitted my crash report just now) its closing streams and i don't know why. is it Firefox? is it the stream website? is it my computer?? how can i pinpoint the problem?? 2. I'm seeing multiple live streams usually 6 or more with PIP , I'm organizing the layouts so that I can see them all together. I've sent you a screen shot. for some reason the streams windows keeps centering themself to the borders of the actual screen its driving me nuts. like it has a mind of its own. I keep moving it beyond the border so i can see al the streams but after a minute or two it keeps moving back to the actual screen border. sometimes it doesn't move. its like AI is controlling when it moves and when it stays. is there a way that a computer program!! will listen to my command instead of having a mind of its own and moving my stuff to where he wants too?? is there a fix to it???

When I click on any link, Firefox opens a new tab but the site will never come up.

I've tried Troubleshoot mode and refreshing Firefox but something in one of the recent updates has caused me to not be able to click on any link and have it open. Troubleshoot mode will solve the problem for a couple of clicks and then the problem returns even while still in troubleshoot mode. Firefox has become unusable at this point but I'd like to go back. Please help.

Hi, Since the update today to 127.0 My sidebar bookmark will not load when I open Firefox. Here is what I have done so far,

Uninstalled Firefox and use the restore on reinstall. didn't work deleted the xulstore file in 3 location. didn't work Removed Firefox using Revo Uninstaller and installed from the local setup file. didn't work Uninstalled ad-ons that used the sidebar, IE Video DownloadHelper, Sync my account, and tryed the step above again. didn't work I use Revo again and did a search for any firefox file, deleted old firefox folder on desktop and any file I could find with a link to the browser. Reinstalled from local file.

When Firefox started this time there was no profile to log in my account "" password etc "", I did a test and the sidebar was working correctly. I then activated my account and the side bar stop working on restart. Not that I did a sync after removing a few ad-ons, see pic for left addons.

When I'm browsing, especially when shopping, say, Amazon, eBay, or Swanson Vitamins or wherever, FF opens a new tab which remains open to the right of the left-most original tab. Of course, when I + a new tab which I want it to stay open, it opens and, again, by itself, FF closes the first tab and the latter takes over the left-most spot. And, in case of eBay, when I click on an item I want to check, it keeps on opening a new tab on the original tab. Placing the cursor on FF icon on task bar displays all the tabs. I never had things like above happen with previous issue FF. Of, course, I don't know since which FF version was stable in the way I wanted. Does anyone know how to set FF to stop taking all these unwanted actions?
