I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

My sister have a facebook page with shop that I help her manage, but for some reason lately we can't access the "shop" tab of the page with firefox.

We are getting The page isn’t redirecting properly error. I cleaned cookies and cache, even tried a new private window, nothing. I tried opening in edge and everything worked like no problem.

The page is the following. https://www.facebook.com/hadrastico/shop

We experienced problems both in my workstation and my sister's laptop that also use firefox (latest version, windows 10 up to date).

Any idea? Should I fill a bug or something?

I'm guessing at the problem: it seems that firefox wants to GIVE ME A SECURE PASSWORD that is different than the one that is written down and remembered by my iphone and since I'm going blind I do not want all of these computer generated passwords. This PC that I am on now seems to have the correct password but firefox is insisting that I put firefox on different device. I THINK my android phone is synced but the older computer also a window 10 laptop refuses to allow me to sign in with my original password. I have no idea if Im suppose to have a different password on each device or what is wrong that I can not sync everything

Any HELP and suggestions?

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?

I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?
