For the past few days, Firefox has been running painfully slowly. I have tried to reset it, reinstall it and running Glary Utilities to clean but nothing has worked so far. I also have Opera and Chrome which are running absolutely fine. The program itself starts up fine but just seems to be very slow to load pages.

I am on Windows 10 with latest updates which is run on a separate SSD drive. Everything else runs very quickly like the resource heavy NoxPlayer.

Please let me know what further details I can provide you with.

Thank you in advance!

Firefox lately has weird connection issues to google related websites (eg. google search, google keep, youtube). 1. Google search takes noticeably slower time. Sometimes it will just hang and need to refresh multiple times. 2. Sometimes, links from google search are not working at the first click/try. 3. Google keep does not load at all, requires multiple refreshes to load it successfully. 4. YouTube is the easiest to replicate the problem. The thumbnails loads significantly slower. I just cant get it load extra content by scrolling down, just keep showing the loading sign.

Tried: 1. clear cache and cookies. 2. restart firefox and PC. 3. restart router. 4. flushed windows dns. 5. no proxy.

FYI, chrome works well so i don't think it is a network issue but a browser specific issue.

Here is the crash info. Recently, usually when scrolling through sites, my tabs would crash unexpectedly. This is a brand-new laptop that I have had for a little over a week now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Crash Reason: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ

I mainly use Firefox. I worked offline on a couple of mails on yahoo webmail, intending to send them in the morning. On waking up, I went online to send wanted to send them, but they could not. Needless to say, the texts of those mails have been lost and were not saved as drafts. All my firefox pages, old and new, now open as bare pages, without links, formatting, pics or functionalities. I am not even able to upload here an image of my screen on a typical page. My email is [email]@yahoo.com.

Hello,

I have been having weird problems with my Firefox since I tried getting back to using it. I have reset everything before using it again. I changed the language back to English but the hamburger icon list is in Japanese. A minor issue but I can manage.

But this one is really annoying. I click on a link and it closes it down for me in 1 second. Here's a short clip of what I'm referring to.

Please help me solve my problem. I just want to download files from my email.

I've recently noticed an issue with Firefox not loading some content for me. On one page it failed to load embedded videos, and when I contacted the site to alert them to the problem they troubleshooted and the issue seemed to be with my browser. A second time, when trying to use Instagram scheduler Planoly, I discovered that none of the images of my feed would display in the program, and again when I contacted support they could find no issue at their end.

I have followed advice and: - cleared my cache and cookies - disabled extensions one by one - scanned my machine for malware.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread

When attempting to use websites like Battlefield 3's "Battlelog" and Netflix's "Watch Instantly", which require Windows Vista or Windows 7, these websites fail to recognize my OS, which is Windows 7 64-bit.

I recently uninstalled an addon called Masking Agent, which purported to hide a computer's specifications from websites. How this addon got onto my computer I am unsure.
