Hi! As the title states, since the latest windows update (am now on 19041.508), anytime I go on a webpage on Firefox it's extremely slow to load, however once loaded the page is as fast as it should be!

I don't have any antivirus other than windows defender, and disabling it/the windows firewall doesn't fix the issue, so it doesn't seem to be linked to that either, on the online forums such as this one I found it was also common to have issues caused by hardware acceleration, playing with that setting does not help either.

Another friend of mine has the same issue as me since the last update, so I'm assuming it's not something unique to my situation, is this a known issue for which a fix is available? Searching for one has yielded only outdated results.

Thanks a lot!

I recently have a new laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 3593) & installed Firefox. Every time I watch a video on Youtube and click on the logo to return home, I get logged out and when i try to login I get this “'405. That’s an error.” message. I tried doing the same thing with the other browsers (Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge) & they work perfectly. I also tried reinstalling Firefox but still the issue is the same & Firefox on my old laptop doesn’t have this issue. Can anyone help me with this one?

In Firefox 81 removing the checkmark under Tools/Options/General/Tabs in the checkbox for "open links in tabs instead of new windows" disables the downloading on certain sites (i.e. ASUS). The browser just blinks and that is it.. This started with rel 79.

For those that want to reproduce the problem: 1. Go to Asus.com 2. Select "English" as language 3. On the drop-down menu click on "Consumer" 4. Under the line "Select a Product" chose "Networking" 5. Under "Select your Product" click on "Product Series" 6. On the drop-down menu select "Wireless Routers" 7. Then click on "Product Model" 8. On the drop-down menu select i.e. "RT-AC66U" 9. Then next to the router picture click on "Driver & Tools" 10. Under "Driver & Tools" select "BIOS & FIRMWARE" 11. Then click on "DOWNLOAD" button in the "Firmware" box 12. The browser will then do a short and quick "blink" and not download anything 13. You will also see a little line above the "DOWNLOAD" button saying "2020/10/08 Downloaded" with a little downward arrow in a circle right next to it 14. Check everything and you will that nothing was downloaded. 15. Try it with and without a check mark in the Firefox options as described above.

This started with firefox rel/ver 79.

I wonder how long it is going to take, till a developer reacts and confirms this "serious" problem. ASUS says it is a Firefox problem. I would really appreciate a reaction, since I am not using firefox anymore because of this.

Hi, I've been having this issue for a few months now, and it can get really annoying. Like the title says, the right side of Firefox is cut off a little for me, both in fullscreen and windowed fullscreen. This problem occurs on all websites, and is only fixed when I restart in safe mode, though I don't think any extensions that I have could be causing this problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

The ones that got sent all start with bp-, but the ones above don't.

How can the two crash reports be submitted?

I've been using Firefox on all my computers for a long time (Windows 10,) great browser.

However, starting today, specifically on my laptop, it's painfully slow (60 seconds to load Google) and very high CPU usage (over 20%.) It regularly stops responding to mouse and keyboard input. I have to kill it with Task Manager. Everything else on the laptop seems fine. I haven't made any changes I'm aware of that could cause this.

As an example, it took over 2 minutes to load this particular page, then at least another 90 seconds before I could type anything into it. My network connection is fine. IE and Edge work OK.

I've tried a Firefox refresh, no change.

An uninstall and reinstall, no change. I've tried a reinstall with also deleting all the appdata folders (so a clean install, no extensions,) no luck.

I've tried disabling antivirus (Symantec, always suspect) no change.

Unless there's something I can remove in the registry I'm at a loss.

I'm really hoping I don't need to switch to Chrome, or God forbid, Edge.

I had a tab open in Firefox for ancestry.com yesterday and was toggling back and forth with other open tabs when suddenly when I clicked on the ancestry tab the page was all greyed out and I couldn't click on anything. It was working just fine a few minutes earlier.

I can open ancestry.com just fine Microsoft Edge browser so I'm assuming the problem is with Firefox.

Thank you for any help you can give me!

Hi. Since the beginning of September, I hit into this strange incident. Eventually, I reinstall my computer in hope to get this fixed. Unfortunately, it didn't. It pops up again after 1 day.

This issue is quite strange, as I've said. When I get into YouTube, the user menu on the upper right corner will go on loading. The menu will never popped up at all. When I refresh the Firefox, this may get fixed in the first hour (it's much less, but I don't have any timing on this), and this will return. Other "interesting loading" may happen, say the "Kaspersky 2021" Add-on.

Other interesting thing is the user menu in YouTube won't complete, even it popped up. Half of it was shown. Normally, we may be able to swap accounts or logoff the account, but that entry wasn't in the menu.

Has everyone hit into this situation before, or is it just me? Any solution? Pls advise, thanks in advance.

Recently Firefox asked me to close so it could restart and install an update, and when it came back, it wasn't properly displaying a number of character sets for which I have the proper fonts installed. Sorry for the vagueness as to when this was, but I'm not sure. The attached table of letters from Wikipedia's article on the Phoenician alphabet gives a great illustration of the problem I'm having. All of these characters used to display.

The fonts work fine outside of Firefox. But the problem isn't limited to Wikipedia, as shown in the next screenshot from Tatoeba. And there are other, non-Semitic letters that I've also suddenly started having problems with - I think they're all the kind that a typical Unicode font might not support, leading me to wonder if Firefox is properly looking for another font, and it doesn't seem so, but I've had difficulty trying to fix this in settings and haven't found any threads here or elsewhere about how I might do so.

Firefox 81.0.1 consumes RAM until my computer freezes. High RAM consumption was always a problem with Firefox, but the recent update seems to be much worse. Why can't Firefox release memory like all other high resource programs? After about 30 minutes it's consuming 2GB, and my 8GB RAM gets maxed out. I use very few plug-ins and no frills in the browser.
