I read where others were having the same problem, getting crash reports after trying to close down firefox and takes super long wait to be able to browse when starting again. But I never did read a fix. Can anyone help?

The "Layout.css.page-size.enabled" configuration parameter = False ,worked effectively in previous versions, but after updating to Firefox 119.0, it no longer works whether I set it to True or False.

Orientation option is missing when I try to print documents from a website. The Firefox Print Preview window, which usually allows orientation choices for printing, is now not available.

Please advise. Thanks!

How to debug FF startup, not using the profiler? After reboot, FF always takes 14 minutes to start the first time.

I run the latest Firefox (v122.0.1) on Windows 11.

Since last week, FF takes 14 minutes to start the first time after a boot. :-( Usually FF starts in ~3 seconds.

I reboot the laptop. I wait a minute. I start FF. Nothing happens for 14 minutes. Finally the browser window suddenly appear and everything is working normally. I exit FF (no remaining firefox.exe processes are running). I start FF again. Now it starts immediately as usual. :-) But: I reboot and start FF. Again, it takes 14 minutes to start. This is reproduceable every time.

I haven't tried to *solve* this by refreshing FF or simillar. Right now I'm more interested in debugging this and finding out what is wrong.

I found https://profiler.firefox.com/docs/#/./guide-startup-shutdown which states how to automatically start the profiler at startup.

12:40 I boot the computer, login and wait a minute. 12:43 I start CMD.EXE and run:

 cd c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP=1
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP_ENTRIES=20000000
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP_INTERVAL=100

12:44 I run:

 firefox.exe

No GUI appear. (it won't appear until 14 minutes later) I open the Task Manager and see one (1) firefox.exe process, taking 0% cpu. (pid 17668) 12:48 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:50 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:52 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:54 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:56 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:58 The browser GUI finally appear. Everything is now normal. It is showing one (1) tab with my start-page (google) just as it should. (my Task Manager now show 12 FF processes running, with various options) 12:59 I click the icon to stop the profiling.

I open the profile. [Profile Info] says:

 Recording started: Sat 17 Feb 2024 12:58
 Recording length: 1m12s 

So my profiling data don't show what happens between 12:44 to 12:58 :-(

Just for the sake of it, I'm attaching a pic of the first 10 seconds of the profile (at 12:58).

PS: Between 12:44 and 12:58 no FF window exists at all. Alt+Tab show no FF and in Task Manager I can't do any "Window" management, it is greyed out. I.e. no FF window exists for this process.

Question 1) What should I do to debug what happens between 12:44 and 12:58?

Question 2) How can it be that it takes 14 minutes to start FF from scratch (boot) while it starts quickly (~3 seconds) if it has been started once? I mean, all firefox.exe processes are gone when I exit FF, so starting FF again should be like starting from scratch, but apparently something is different.

Question 3) Is it normal that a FF, with only one tab (https://google.com/), run 12 processes in Task Manager?

I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

My Firefox browser automatically updated a few days ago. Since the update, the browser now crashes repeatedly during basic browsing, making Firefox essentially unusable. For instance, retrieving Yahoo mail, reading articles, accessing login pages -- the page will enter some type of refresh/reload cycle and crash the browser.

I opened the browser in troubleshoot mode and the problem did not occur. Following the Mozilla instructions, I disabled extensions and reopened the browser normally, and the crashes continued. I have not taken any additional actions.

This problem began immediately after the latest browser update on 9/13.

First of all, an important thing to note is that this is happening on only my school laptop, and not my pc. This problem occurs on all school laptops that have Firefox installed. The reason I, and some others want to use Firefox is simply to get an ad-blocker as extensions are blocked on the default browsers (chrome and edge).

Anyway, the issue is as such: One moment, I will be browsing normally, and then the next, a page will stop loading or refuse to load any new content. It is just like there is no internet going to Firefox, despite the laptop having internet connection as seen in other programs. The way I fix this is by opening edge, waiting for it to start, and then closing edge. Firefox then has internet connectivity again and will work perfectly fine for another few minutes, before having to do it again.

I really have no idea why this is happening, and especially why it is fixed by opening and closing another browser. Obviously this is caused by some administrative program on the computer, but by the way that I can temporarily fix it, I would assume that there is a more permanent solution. The admin programs on the computer are GlobalProtect (VPN), Sophos Endpoint Agent (Security), and Teamviewer (probably not relevant).

As this is for a student, doing something that is against the school rules, it is absolutely necessary that this gets fixed as soon as possible. I simply cannot live with these default browsers with ads. /s

Thanks for the help

There was no such problem before, after the 117 update, the CSS theme I use is constantly reset and the browser returns to its default theme. The screen goes black for a moment and then the theme resets or the browser crashes. Is there anyone who has experienced the same problem? Any possible solutions?

Starting a few weeks ago, firefox would not load any accounts via https://login.microsoftonline.com/ one one of my Macs.

I was running the latest version 121.xx on MAC 12.7.2

Nothing would fix the site issue, so I tried re-installing and refreshing Firefox. Followed all the troubleshooting steps.

Now firefox is completely broken. Tried creating a new profile. Running in safe mode, etc.

It sometimes will load pages, but extremely slow. But generally is unusable.

Firefox works on my other macs just fine (Profile uses sync with those machines)

Safari and Chrome work perfectly fine. No malware. No ISP issues. No firewall.

Please advise a fix or I guess I will delete everything firefox related.

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

Had it yesterday, happened this morning after the restart and just NOW, when I entered 6 lousy tabs, and they are NOT in the recently closed list either.. wups, gone, no tabs, setting has a check mark on open previous windows and tabs. Within 24 hours, lost the tabs three times with a non reported crash and Firefox closing itself with no warning.

I honestly do not think I am responsible to keep a backup of my browser history, I expect a browser to do that. I switched from Opera to Firefox not to long ago.. even Opera is a security risk.. at least it doesn't delete your tabs just for fun.

Very simple.. that happens once more and i am OFF this browser....

I've encountered a very weird behavior: when selecting where to save a file or selecting a file to upload, the browser hangs 100% of the time.

Even when I go to about:memory, click Load, the path selection window appears - regardless of whether I select a file or close the window, the browser hangs and the window stops responding. I tried waiting for several hours - to no avail. Only restarting helps. Same with the upload selection window - regardless of whether I selected a file to upload or closed the selection window, the browser hangs. Before freezing permanently, the mouse cursor stops moving, then lags around a bit before recovering.

I tried cleaning download history, cache, recreated profile, restarted without extensions, in safe mode, disabled antivirus - always the same result.

Please advise me, maybe someone has encountered something like this - I really don't want to start using Chrome. My OS is Windows 11. Thanks in advance.

Hello! So the problem I'm having is every so often after ten minutes of Firefox working perfectly it will stop working. For example, it won't load any new pages it'll just be stuck pinging back and forth. The website will stop loading YouTube and Twitch will show network errors etc. And it's NOT MY NETWORK or router.

I'm hooked up threw an ethernet cable but my CPU and ethernet ( I just got a new ethernet cable CAT 8 because I thought it was my cable but it still doesn't work) only spikes when using Firefox it's like Firefox stops sending and receiving. Yet other browsers like Chrome work PERFECTLY. But I would prefer using Firefox since all my bookmarks and things are saved here.

I've tried clearing my cookies etc. I'm going to try redownloading Firefox but if there is anything else I could do please let me know. I have some images attached one of the balls just loading and I'll be waiting forever until I restart Firefox. The other is of a media player that says I have a network error but I only get this error on Firefox.

Hi all,

I feel like this is a problem that must have been experienced and solved a thousand times... however I've tried all the suggested fixes I can find and the problem still persists.

When I load Firefox the pages take ages to load. It doesn't matter what the page is, it takes ages, except that about: pages load fine, no problem. When I say pages take ages to load, I mean that everything about the page takes ages, not only the next, not on the images and other content etc, everything. This only started happening today and I only created a new profile a month or so ago. I don't have many tabs open (maybe 20) of which 9 are pinned. I do have lots of extensions installed.

I've tried troubleshooting/safe mode, that makes no difference.

Private browsing and loading another profile are fine, they don't have this problem.

I've cleared all cache and data, cookies, etc, including startup cache.

I've deleted the content-prefs file, and removed places files.

I've tried disabling and enabling hardware acceleration.

I've tried disabling TRR.

Probably some other things too, but so far nothing has worked.

Suggestions please! :)
