Alright first of all I already tried all the tipps about Proxy and basically anything network related. It also happened out of nowhere since I was using my computer the night before but when I tried opening Firefox the next day it wouldnt load any site, crashed if I tried too much or got really weird and even if it did load after a long time of trial and error it only lasted for a bit and didnt load fully either. I'm on version 108.0.2 as of the last time checking. Everything else seems to be updated as well especially since other browsers work perfectly fine. I also cant really click on much since as I said if I try too much it crashes or doesnt work as intended. I'll provide some pictures which might help the cash report just in case.

I'd also rather not try reinstalling everything since I have a lot of rather important tabs open and I dont wanna risk losing any of them since im not sure how well the Firefox sync. works in this case.

A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.

Hail:

System Software: Win11Ent_x64 v22H2 (b: 22621.2283) MFF v18.5.0.0

No matter what I try, my MFF keeps crashing at startup. For some reason, it tries to open 2 pages the windows at the same time, which is illogical. I deleted firstly my: sessionstore.jsonlz4 logins.json to no avail.

Then I tried to open MFF through elevated CMD with the command: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -safe-mode Again, 2 windows pop crashing immediately.

I do not understand why all of the sudden, it tries to open 2 different instances at once. This makes no sense. I am out of ideas, having tried many an option found on Google, but which none give me a solution.

If anyone has an idea, I would be quite darn thankful. This MSEdge crap that I need to use now is not quite my thing.

Thank you. Ke'Ylan

I frequently use GroupMe on desktop from Firefox, on two separate computers (a self-built desktop, and a Dell Latitude laptop).

Starting sometime over a week ago, I have been unable to drag & drop or otherwise upload photos in my chats. The only method that works is pasting direct URLs of JPGs.

In all other circumstances, I get the uploaded image error attached to this post.

Two different GroupMe support agents have said that, since image upload is still working in Edge, that it's a Firefox problem.

Tried clearing cache, site cookies, reset the browser, ran in troubleshooting mode...same result every time.

This is not the "image file size too big" error. I used to routinely post captures from the Snipping Tool, and I can't anymore.

I'm not sure where else to go to troubleshoot this. It's very annoying. Any suggestions?

I've set custom fonts through Settings > Fonts > Advanced, but the fonts I have specified are not being used on any websites even if I uncheck the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above". For example, I've set the default sans serif to Source Sans 3, but websites use Arial regardless of the settings. The only custom font I've gotten to work is Segoe UI (the UI font on Windows); all other just fall back to Arial. The problem persists even if I disable all extensions/add-ons. I'm also experiencing the problem for non-Latin scripts; I've tried to set the default Bengali font to Noto Sans Bengali, but websites are using Vrinda instead.

I'm running Firefox version 120.0 on Windows 11, any help is greatly appreciated!

Up until Firefox 116, Reopen Closed Tab (Ctrl+Shift+T) would reopen closed tabs, and Reopen Closed Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) would reopen closed windows. There was a clear bifurcation, so I could freely close windows and not worry about it polluting my tab history in another window.

The latest change has thrown out that advantage, and now Reopen Closed Tab reopens both tabs and windows, while Reopen Closed Window still just reopens windows. This makes the later essentially useless and the former much more difficult to use for me.

I assume this was done to just continue copying Chrome in all respects since that's how it handles it, but the changelog just vaguely states, "This change is in anticipation of upcoming changes to recently closed tabs."

Does anyone know if there's a setting to separate the two functions again?

duplicate of /questions/1433030 thread.

I‘m somewhat uncertain: I downloaded the Firefox Installer from (I believe) Mozilla.org via Edge. When I tried to Upload the file to VirusTotal I got errors first and it only worked after restarting the laptop.

The file hadn‘t been analyzed so far (which surprised me), 1 out of 72 scanners claimed to have found a Trojan but what bothered me more was that according to VirusTotal the file was compiled in 2018 with Microsoft Visual C/C++ 12.00.8168. It was also somewhat smaller than the last Installer I downloaded (342kb vs. 390kb), although both should be version 18.05.

So I‘m a little concerned if the downloaded file is legitimate?

I want to re-order the add-ons / extensions in the toolbar shared with the search bar. Customize toolbar only has functions/icons related to the operation of Firefox. I want to customize the extensions toolbar, but how?

In the add-ons page, I can remove, disable, or enable extensions, but I cannot change the order of them.

As an example, there is an add-on for my Firefox account that is leftmost in the bar of extension icons. I would like to move it all the way to the right. Again, how would I do that?

Thanks for your help.

I have firefox set up so that it does not suggest anything except for my bookmarks.

So when I type in the address bar the only suggestions that come up are my bookmarks, no other suggestions.

For example when I need to translate something quick and want to go to the bookmarked page for google translate as soon as I type "trans..." it will suggest the link, Which is what I want and expect and is efficient.

But as has happened before, now I get a random suggestion coming up first so I have type more just to get to the same result otherwise I end up following a link to a suggested site which is at best aggravating.

I checked my seeting and there is one box ticked in the search suggestion settings that I cannot disable. I have tried and it always comes back.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.
