Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Hi everyone,

I'm on w7-64. I updated to FF86, and there were obvious problems with it, so I installed 84. Works fine, except that now I'm noticing twitter and facebook get slower over time. I didn't notice that before reinstallation of 84.

I just created a new profile and refreshed. Will monitor. But what is the usual issue when firefox is doing this? Basically its not releasing memory correct?

I tried useing Firemin (https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/firemin/), and there was a noticable difference with twitter and firefox. But I'd rather just fix the issue instead of using a bandaid if I can.

During the reinstallation of FF84, I did delete a few registry entries (I followed a page like this to do it (https://www.tenforums.com/browsers-email/164280-remove-firefox-completely-then-reinstall.html)). But I don't know how that could effect releasing memory.

I'll keep you updated, but does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

Yesterday I was using Firefox normally (browsing, Discord, etc.). Today when I opened it, it wouldn't load any page. If I type something in the adress bar it will auto-complete or show suggestions based on google, but when I hit enter, nothing happens. It doesn't even try to load anything. I also can't go into options. When I click on the options button, nothing happens. I am not running in any compatibility modes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't help. I am not using any add-ons. I have done several virus searches. Other browsers work fine. I'm running out of ideas now, that's why I'm doing this post.

Hi:

Just installed Firefox on Windows 10. When the installation finishes, the browser window shows two tabs, both crashed. Trying to access any URL also results in a crashed tab.

If I quit Firefox at that point, then attempt to restart the program, I'll get the spinning circle for a few moments, then nothing -- it just won't run again. The installer file will run again, but I'll get the same results.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Gregg

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.

Hi Guys,

I have a problem when I'm waking up PC from sleep mode. Please help me if you have ideas or solutions.

In my case, Firefox doesn't accept any action (scroll, click). The only solution is terminate Firefox by cmd+Q shortcut, and after restart, it works properly.

I can see same problem with my Mac Mini M1 and Macbook Air M1, but it didn't happen on Intel Macbook Pro.

Here's my environment,

OS:Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.2 Firefox:86.0 Display:Dell Q3219U Connection:USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to Displayport

I guess it was the update to Firefox v. 86.0 here on Ubuntu that made Firefox create an extra empty window beside the session I always (re)open, which contains a large amount of tabs. When I try to close the empty window Firefox gives a warning, that this will close my (many) tabs. That doesn't make much sense to me. And when another app, like Thunderbird, opens an URL, it is opened in the new empty window. I can add that I use some add-ons like Simple Tab Groups, Vertical Tabs Reloaded, AdBlock Plus and NoScript.

I'm running Arch btw, with GNOME Shell 3.38.3 and Firefox 86.0 (64-bit).

If I have Firefox already open and I click on a link inside of another app, Firefox displays the following error message and the link fails to open.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

However, if I close Firefox and then click the link again, Firefox will correctly open the link.

I've been having the problem of websites loading slowly on Firefox for a few days now. Firefox itself loads quickly, but opening Youtube for example takes a very long time.

I have this problem since I have a new internet line, yet this is most likely not the problem, since on chrome this problem does not occur.

As a solution I have cleaned firefox and even clean reinstalled it. However, the problem still occurs. I suspect that this is a problem related to my profile. Even opening it without addons does nothing.

Any ideas?

I have a Macbook laptop and I'm using a secondary screen. I use Firefox on my secondary screen, and anytime I hover over a bookmark or a button that has a tooltip, the tooltip shows on my primary monitor, instead of showing on the secondary monitor. Steps to reproduce: 1. Setup a Mac with a secondary monitor 2. Launch Firefox on the second monitor 3. Enable the Bookmark Bar and make sure you have some bookmark set in a folder structure 4. Open one of the folder so it drops down 5. Hover over one of the items in the folder SEE: The tooltip appears on the primary monitor floating over empty space, instead of hovering over the proper menu entry in the secondary monitor

I have attached a screen capture (obscuring some personal items).

Note: Some tooltips show in the right place, but all bookmark tooltips,
