Multiple instances of Firefox spamming my computer, even with no pages open

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

It's a fairly new problem, the pages are ok in IE and Chrome.

I have Windows 7 and Firefox is up to date 96.0.2

Thanks, Fraidy

I've recently noticed that some icons on websites are showing up as "asian" characters. I haven't knowingly changed any settings, gone to any strange sites, nor added any extensions. I've tried clearing the cache and even removed and reinstalled firefox and the few extensions I use, which are the common ones like adaware,etc. Nothing has seemed to work. The icons range from ones that link to facebook, twitter, etc to the search icon. If I inspect the icon it says the font is "MingLiU_HKSCS" I've checked the setting and it says the font is times new roman and even unchecked the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" but neither seems to work. Thanks for your help

I live with Firefix always in full screen. I Don't like seeing any bars or buttons of any kind.

Befor the latest update, when I moved my mouse to the top of the screen my tabs popped down and in the top right corner was the standard icons for "minimize" "maximize" and "exit".

With the latest update the tabs are there but the 3 buttons have gone.

If I exit full screen (F11) then they are there again, but I dont want to have to exit full screen every time I change between programes which I do every few mins. I'd be popping pages in and out of full screen every few mins!

How do I get the buttons back all the time?

often when on ATT yahoo email page, Firefox will stall and say not responding and then it shuts down any other activity on my pc. When I am able later to open task manager, I see about 20 firefox.exe processes running, so i start ending them all. This is getting annoying, it's probably an ATT probelm due to their stupid ads, but I have tried several times to stop Firefox from running all these processes but you all keep coming back. why so damn many for one window/tab open at a time????

Firefox is constantly removing safe extensions, re-approving them, then removing them again a couple days later. This is very frustrating, and is enough to make me permanently switch to Google Chrome, since they don't do this, and since I have to use that browser when Firefox messes with these extensions. I have been a stalwart Firefox user for years, but Firefox is pushing people like me away with this ridiculous behavior.

The best example is LastPass. Chrome seems to think it's perfectly safe, as it is not removing it. I use it and need it to be available for sites I need passwords for.

Unfortunately, however, Firefox regularly removes this essential extension and others, then, as I say, allows it again a day or two later, then removes it again.

Please, Firefox, figure this out! Otherwise, you're going to lose a lot of users and get a very bad reputation.

I've tried a few things to fix it - virus scan, resetting systems to previous date before the updates, etc. Nothing has fixed this.

Thunderbird-emails with links. Links won't open w Firefox. issue is only 2 weeks old. Have been using this setup for about 10 years.

System 7;

  • Tools say Firefox is update.
  • Webroot says no malware issues.
  • I shut down computer.
  • I ran an Firefox refresh
  • I restarted computer
  • Crash report popup was filled out many times. It says report was filed.

I just received yet another popup: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window. I only have one version of Firefox.

I prefer to talk to technicians.

Update: This issue doesn't relate to "Mail to" when firefox is open. This relates to open emails with links. Links won't open. None of the suggested hints apply.
