I'm getting a blank (white) screen when my Win 7 pc boots up to the desktop (see attached screen shot). It has a small FireFox logo at the upper left corner. After about a minute this window will close revealing the desktop. If you try to close it, it says it isn't responding. As a test, I uninstalled FF and then rebooted. This window didn't open up. I can't tell if it is a FF issue or if some program is trying to use FF on startup but failing. Has anyone else had this issue?

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

Hi, I have a Mac 10.11.6 and for whatever reason I cannot get Firefox to open. I received a message at the bottom of my browser during the last use saying something to the effect of click restore/restart to improve speed. I did this and now Firefox will not open. I get a Mozilla crash reporter screen even when I try launching it in safe mode. I tried the refresh option (by holding shift + option on startup) and still get the crash report screen. I reinstalled it multiple times, tried deleting it and doing a clean install, deleted my profile and created a new one, and even deleted my anti virus program. Nothing seems to be working and I am very eager to get my preferred browser working again.

Thanks very much for your insight!

this morning, I get the above error message when attempting to open ff. I was able to open ff from the start menu(windows 7 enterprise), but all of my bookmarks have disappeared. I had the system administrator attempt to restore my computer, with no results, then reinstalling ff. upon reinstall, I was able to open ff, but bookmarks were still missing. then, a ff update "esr" was run, and now I get the error msg above trying to open ff from anywhere. I cannot open ff at all to restore defaults or run in safe mode to fix.

In general, Firefox was running very poorly, freezing up at times while loading sites. I once ran RogueKiller and it detected a rootkit affecting Firefox. Following this I decided to reset Firefox. I was also prompted to update Firefox to the latest version, which I also did. After this, Firefox does not open a window upon starting the program. It will show that it is opening on the task bar (I have Windows 7) and then after about 15 seconds the icon appears as if it is not open. Upon checking in Windows Task Manager, it shows that FF is running, albeit in the background. I have tried various anti-virus/malware scanners (Spybot, AVG, Sophos Virus Removal Tool, Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware) and other scanners (TDSS Killer, CCleaner, AdWCleaner) but nothing malicious is detected (even in safe mode). I suspect some kind of deeper infection which is evading all these attempts. FYI Internet Explorer is also affected by the same problem. Thank you so much for any kind of help.

I have been using Firefox for years, but yesterday firefox stopped working. That is to say that the task manager showed firefox in the task list with 14%CPU but no browser page was started. ie Firefox running but no screen output.

I was using Firefox without problem until the last few weeks on my 3rd Gen Carbon X1 running fully-patched Windows 10 64-bit. At some point, it just stopped launching. I have tried everything suggested here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-wont-start-find-solutions without luck.

In particular, I uninstalled Firefox with Windows 10 "Add and Remove Programs". Then I deleted all Mozilla/Firefox folders under \AppData. Then I went through the registry and deleted every Mozilla or Firefox key. I rebooted, and reinstalled Firefox from scratch using the installer. There are no errors on installation; however, when I then try to launch Firefox, nothing happens (the process is visible in task manager or pslist, but otherwise no windows opens). I have also tried launching firefox.exe from the command shell; likewise, no errors or other response--it just stays spawns the pid but then no window opens or other visible indication that Firefox is there.

I've tried variations on this uninstall/purge/reboot process several times without any progress. I just can't get firefox.exe to launch at all on this system. Otherwise, the box seems to functioning perfectly, and all other common web browsers work fine.

I've also tried launching in safe mode (via command line or keypress) but get no different result.

Any ideas for narrowing the issue?

FF 58.0.2 64-bit Windows 7 64-bit

My home page is

http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/on-118_metric_e.html

Frequently, when I open FF, I get the following error:

"Page Not Found (HTTP 404)

The page requested could not be found at this location.

If you navigated using a bookmark, we suggest you delete it or update the bookmark pointing to this site"

However, when I highlight the url in the address box, copy it, then paste it into a new tab, the page opens. The address is exactly the same in the new tab as in the one giving the error message.

I've scanned for malware, rootkits, viruses - all for nothing.

I've uninstalled and re-installed FF - no change.

Can anyone advise what else I can do, please?

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.

When I install Firefox it works fine. Installation does not include a shortcut on my desktop, so when I attempt to start it again, I go to "all programs." Then I get the "specified path does not exist" message. I suspect that this has something to do with confusion between two hard drives. C: drive, a small SSD, contains the operating system and various other software. D: drive is my data drive, contains other applications, music, photos, etc. The path referred to in the error message is D:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe.

Firefox does not provide the option of choosing a drive for the installation. Is it possible that it installs automatically to the C: drive, and the shortcut keeps sending me to the D: drive?

If you have any other thoughts or suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

I have no idea about what it may be. Booting involves launching mozilla firefox automatically and along with it opening multiple tabs inherited from the last session. Any help welcome. -ced.

Firefox suddenly stopped working today. When I open it, it tells me that it's already open (which it isn't) and that it can't find or load my profile. If I go directly to profiles and create a new one, I can open it, but all my bookmarks are gone. And then if I close and try to reopen it, the same thing happens--I can't open it and get the same error message.

One thing I figured out is that the profile can’t be read only, and I discovered that mine was (why I don't know), but when I try to uncheck read only, it instantly reverts back to read only, which is weird.

I’ve tried reinstalling Firefox several times, but it’s always the same, even with a brand-new installation, I can’t open it and get the same error message. What can I do if reinstalling doesn’t even work?
