Every now and then every tab on firefox would just refresh at once. I would be watching a youtube video or just browsing the web when everything just freezes and then refreshes and I would see the loading icon on every tab.

Have had this problem for a couple of years now, across dozens of Firefox updates. Decided to finally make a post since have not been able to find anything online.

Normally not too much of an issue as I can edit on a different computer through Firefox Sync (or through the Bookmarks manager), just posting to see if anyone else has seen this before.

If I open a Bookmarks Toolbar folder, then right-click a bookmark to edit it, the contextual menu appears behind the open folder dropdown menu.

Issue persists even if I reset Firefox, or even completely uninstall / remove ALL its bits and pieces, reboot, and do a clean install.

Since I am on a Mac, I use the AppCleaner app from FreeMacSoft to completely remove an app.

This happens only on one of my two Macs. Have never seen this behavior on any other Mac (I work on dozens for work). Both my Macs also have Win 10 installs through BootCamp and those two also behave normally. I use Firefox Sync across 4 Firefox installs (2 Mac OS and 2 Win 10), an iPhone, and an iPad.

Screenshot enclosed below. Feel free to ask for any other info you may need. I recognize this may not be a Firefox issue. There seems to be a funky interaction between my install of Mac OS and Firefox. This occurs only with Firefox. All other apps exhibit normal menu behaviors.

Tech details: Firefox 117.0 Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 running on mid 2012 15" MacBook Pro with 1 TB SSD and 16 GB RAM

Many Thanks!

I use Firefox on two computers, synced. Both computers are experiencing this issue. My browser will, at seemingly random intervals, refresh all tabs, which causes me often to lose my work on whatever I was doing. I have gone to about:config and turned off the auto-refresh preference, but the problem still persists. Please help, I don't want to switch to another browser but I will if this problem persists as it is QUITE frustrating.

All images, webm, gif etc. are loading, seemingly, exactly 20% upscaled compared to the real resolution of the media. I'm using a 4k TV (S95B), but I have desktop scaling at 100%, and browser scaling at 100%. I don't believe it's a GPU or OS system wide type setting because windows photo viewer gets pictures right. I'm using ShareX to measure the pixels of pictures. I can even load a local picture in a tab, and it will be upscaled beyond its native resolution. I have no idea why. I've tried a bunch of things, like setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0, which did nothing. I've reset Firefox to no avail, and I have noticed that Chrome is doing the same thing, which would usually indicate it could be the OS or GPU driver, but again, other apps load images perfectly normally. Do apps have categories on Windows now, where something like a "browser" can be told to treat media files differently than other media handling categories? I'm really lost at this point, nothing seems to work.

Hiya. I usually have a fairly large number of tabs open on the browser. I use the Panorama View add-on for tab management. Usually this means that on any given container I have about 10-20 tabs open for a total of some 300 odd tabs. The nice thing is that Firefox doesn't usually load all my tabs so this works out for me. Recently however something weird's been going on and Firefox just refreshed ALL my tabs across all the containers. This kills my performance completely, especially given a fair number of tabs are just random youtube links. When all my tabs are open Firefox eats up like 25 GB of RAM, which is understandably not great.

I tried refreshing Firefox to no avail. Is there any way to stop this constant loading of all tabs?

The excellent answer here no longer works in Firefox 117.0 on MacOS. Unfortunately, that post is archived, so I cannot post an updated solution there. I would greatly appreciate if a moderator could add this post in the linked article, or at least link from there over to here.

For Firefox 117, the code needs to be modified slightly (two lines at the top need to be removed): ```

  //
  function ConfigJS() { Services.obs.addObserver(this, 'chrome-document-global-created', false); }
  ConfigJS.prototype = {
   observe: function (aSubject) { aSubject.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', this, {once: true}); },
   handleEvent: function (aEvent) {
     let document = aEvent.originalTarget; let window = document.defaultView; let location = window.location;
     if (/^(chrome:(?!\/\/(global\/content\/commonDialog|browser\/content\/webext-panels)\.x?html)|about:(?!blank))/i.test(location.href)) {
       if (window._gBrowser) {
         let keys = ["key_find", "key_findAgain", "key_findPrevious", "key_gotoHistory", "addBookmarkAsKb", "bookmarkAllTabsKb", "showAllHistoryKb", "manBookmarkKb", "viewBookmarksToolbarKb", "key_savePage", "key_search", "key_search2", "focusURLBar", "focusURLBar2", "key_openDownloads", "openFileKb", "key_reload_skip_cache", "key_viewSource", "key_viewInfo", "key_privatebrowsing", "key_quitApplication", "context-bookmarklink"];
         for (var i=0; i < keys.length; i++) {
            let keyCommand = window.document.getElementById(keys[i]);
            if (keyCommand != undefined) { 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("command"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("key"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("modifiers"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("oncommand"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("data-l10n-id"); 
            }
         }
       }
     }
   }
  };
  if (!Services.appinfo.inSafeMode) { new ConfigJS(); }

```

This morning i restarted firefox and it only opened 3 of the 4 windows i closed yesterday. I've just read about the limit of 3 windows reopened after closing, but now i can't restore the 4th one (it was the manin window with many tabs opened). In history i can't click on "Recently closed windows" and ctrl-shift-n doesn't work. I made a backup of my profile outside of the usual firefox folder. Is there something i can do to restore the 4th windows? I don't mind losing the other windows, but i need to recover the main one. I also tried this tool https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html but it doesn't seem to work with the files inside startupCache.

Using Firefox 117.0 (64 bit) with Windows 10 Pro 22H2, I have www.google.co.uk set as the home page. Whenever I use the homepage search box to enter a search term, Firefox stalls for about 10 seconds before showing the search results. Selecting any search results opens the relevant page straightaway. Subsequent new searches using either the search box at the top of the results page or the home page again also has the 10 second delay. Using the search box in the Menu Bar does not have this delay - the results are shown straightaway. This has been happening for the past two weeks or so and using the previous version of Firefox. I've been using Firefox for many years and have never had this problem. Chrome works fine. I've tried all the "solutions" found on the internet, refreshed Firefow, tried a new profile, troubleshoot mode, etc, without any change. Also, within the past 24 hours, I can no longer open www.screwfix.com - with www.screwfix.com in the address bar, I get a completely white page without any error message. Screwfix opens fine with Chrome on this machine and with Firefox on Android tablet and phone. Please can you help with this. I'm in the UK. Thanks

I don't know why, but since today firefox keeps reloading all my tabs I have open every couple of minutes. It happens on both my desktop and laptop and its getting annoying.

This glitch isn't a problem on any other websites.

Firefox just turns into a black screen and becomes unusable. It has been happening for a long time now and i have checked RAM and CPU usage and they are all fine, as I explored potential causes.

I will be using firefox and it just turns all black on all screens and is completely unusable. To use it again I have to force close all windows and reopen it and it works again.

This is a frequent issue that I have seen

I often need to be able to use the arrow keys to navigate my screen, especially in order to find and click on browser links. However, in the latest version of Firefox on a new macOS Ventura machine, the arrow keys are interpreted by Firefox even though they shouldn't be; at the least corresponding box in "Settings" is unchecked.

How can toggle this behavior off?

Thank you, David Romano

Dorando keyconfig isn't current. Shortkeys won't even install and probably won't do what I want anyway. AutoHotkey will do it, but I'd rather not use it for this.

Does anyone know how I can get a config.js to open the Library when I hit Ctrl+Shift+B?

Hi all. I've been using Firefox for years on my Mac. It's my browser of choice.

A couple of days ago, my Mac installed an OS update (v13.5.2). After the reboot, I opened Firefox and discovered that it, too, had installed an update (v117.0). But when I got into Gmail and tried to turn on desktop notifications, it said this:

Note: Notifications have been disabled in this browser.

And it's right--no other sites are sending me their usual notifications, either.

My problem is, I can't figure out why notifications are disabled in Firefox suddenly. I didn't disable them. I've tried clicking the lock on gmail's site and setting its permissions to allow notifications, but they aren't coming. I've checked my Mac's preferences, and Firefox has notifications enabled there, as usual. Gmail works fine on Chrome--notifications are working. I've tried reinstalling Firefox--no change. I've tried running Firefox in troubleshooting mode--no joy. Other sites aren't even asking for permission to send notifications. Like Gmail, they appear to believe notifications are disabled in the browser.

I've searched the web for solutions, but I can't find one that tells me where the enable/disable switch is. Can some kind soul please help me out here?

Thank you SO MUCH in advance!!
