Constant Crashing on Mac OS – Little hope for solution

This is the 3rd time I've posted here about crashing in the last month or so. I really do apologize for having to post again but I simply haven’t gotten to a solution. I really need to continue using Firefox as all the other browsers are significantly slower in my experience and I'm in the browser around-the-clock. I’d be willing to pay for customer support from Mozilla but they do not provide any type of support directly as most of you probably know.

Please review this link here to see all the steps I have already taken to troubleshoot the crashes.

I really thought that the crash reports I had would help me pinpoint the issue but it appears as though they’re not very helpful for those who can interpret them. If that’s not the case, I greatly appreciate it if anybody can dig through them to uncover some insights related to why I may be having frequent crashes (I'm willing to pay).

Crash ID from a recent crash: bp-058c91cd-4b9c-46d1-bd12-640ba0210928

Thank you so much for any help.

My problem,using Mint20.2-MATE, with FireFox92, is that FF92 shuts down whenever I minimize FF-i.e., totally down-does NOT appear in taskbar. I know I had the same problem years ago, and it was a simple fix. However, going through the "Help" sections in FF this time was no help. thank you for any suggestions.

I just moved to T-Mobile and when accessing this site, clicking on the login button takes several minutes to get to the login screen. After entering the username, it takes several more minutes to get to the password screen, after which it takes additional minutes for the following error message to be displayed.

             Looks like we got our wires crossed.
             We weren’t able to process your request at this time. Please try again later.

My Chrome and Edge browsers on Windows handle this site fine, as does Firefox on an M1 Mac running Big Sur, and safari on my iPhone - this is the only browser/OS setup that fails. I have cleared caches and cookies but nothing resolves this issue.

I would like to continue using Firefox but need to access this site. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and regards,

Hello, I decided to post here instead of seeking help/assistance on the Firefox reddit.

About a week or so ago I was using Firefox fine, no issue and out of the blue it just stops wanting to launch, or if it does launch it's stuck on a dark window, I was using the dark theme, that looks like it has a loading bar on the page tabs and in the url bar. It just hangs here indefinitely, the only way that I can close down Firefox is by opening up ProcessExplorer64 and killing it that way; it does not respond to task manager at all.

What I've done:

Uninstalled / Reinstalled firefox; Updated my drivers; Turned my computer on and off again; Completely turned off, unplugged and power cycled my computer; Made it a firewall exception; Ensured my internet is connected and my computer has it (I use Discord and Chrome, in fact I have to post this in Chrome.)

What I do not have:

Anti-Virus; My computer is clean, if I could I would eat off the data and suffer no infection from it. Norton/Comodo/Avast; There is no anti-virus. There is no adware, malware, trojans, viruses or spyware on my machine. Going to the same three websites since 1997, no malicious programs are downloaded.

What I have tried related to Firefox:

Running in Safe Mode: Can't access safemode, browser does not launch far enough to have the menu interactable. Trying to launch the profile manager yields nothing. Uninstalling and Reinstalling Firefox yields no result. The only error that I have gotten is a XPRCOM error or something and the solutions for that have not worked for me as I do not have multiple installations of Firefox on my machine.

I would attach a screenshot of how Firefox looks, but I am unable to as of this post it has devolved to launching as a background process and crashing immediately.

Help?

App is broken; something is wrong. I'd like to use a Browser that is not Chrome.

HI!

My buddy highlighted an issue, then i re-checked myself and it is worrying to me.

To recreate (windows):

Get any (non-webistaller [not nececarry, to do it this way, but simpler to check]) firefox version (buddy got a fresh portable, i used my kinda privacy fortified one). Disconnect from the internet (plug the cable for fastest result). Make your version usable (install it) Start firefox, and open the Resource Monitor, with the network tab open expand the Network Activity portion (short alphabeticly, by name, check for F for firefox). Plug the cable in.

You soon will see FF will start looking for things, then an adress with a googleusercontet.com will pop up. Does not matter what is the Homepage's default browser, does no matters even if the Homepage is set to blank, this happens.

My best bet would be google safe browsing, but still, without any activity it is already connecting to that?

I know about the Google-FF/Mozilla relation, but this really made me think about why i still like firefox.

Clicking a hyperlink in an Excel 365 worksheet will not open the URL in Firefox.

Using Excel 365, the worksheets contain tables of short interest history collected from a URL that varies only in the portion that is the companies symbol ( i.e. https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/stocks/akts/short-interest , where "akts" is the company symbol ). On the worksheet for each company this URL, with the correct symbol for the company has been included in a cell using the hyperlink feature.

In the past, clicking any of the hyperlinks immediately opened my default browser, which is the current version of Firefox, to the web page for the company identified by the symbol in the URL.

That changed after a version update of Firefox a number of months ago. Clicking the hyperlink will most times "freeze" Excel, and if I click anywhere in or on Excel a "not responding" message is thrown, and Excel must be manually closed resulting in a recover event for all workbooks that were open. Sometimes, not always, waiting several minutes, Firefox will open the URL. Not always. I've found that if that occurs, clicking on the same URL hyperlink that finally opened (after having closed it in Firefox) will crash Excel.

The attached image is a view of the "tip" still visible on a black screen after Excel has crashed.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi, Using Firefox 92.0.1. On a AMD 5900x with an Nvidia 3090. Nvidia driver 471.68. Hardware decoding doesn't seem to be working correctly on any website. I noticed this as when I adjust video colours and 'edge enhancement' in the Nvidia control panel it has no effect in Firefox but it works in Chrome and Edge. Simply sliding the colour down to black and white for example doesn't work. In task manager GPU video decode is sometimes used, other times no utilisation. Even if it's showing GPU decode being used the colours or Nvidia enhancements do not apply as they do in Edge or Chrome. I tried refreshing Firefox and no change. Is this the intended behaviour or is there a long running bug as a friend also has the same outcome? Thanks

So, I started following instructions via this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-crashes-closing-or-quitting

I first made sure Firefox and all my drivers were up to date, which they were. Moving on, using Troubleshooting Mode, I have yet to encounter any issues. The screenshot below shows the crash reports between yesterday and today. For some reason it won't let me submit the crash report from yesterday, as well as the first one that happened today. I'm also not sure why there are 4 crash reports generated for 10:05PM on 9/30, because Firefox only crashed once to my knowledge.

Here's the submitted crash report ID's, though: bp-35800b96-f14a-488f-b94d-94fa10211001 bp-ad3476ee-2ceb-4de1-a824-a49a90211001 bp-94812bc3-6e24-4454-a479-a6fc70211001 bp-a238a0fc-37f9-4b5c-b883-eb2cb0211001

And the "Failed" Unsubmitted crash reports: b8ab5181-c940-4177-ad4b-00ef7b99f84a be5771aa-ccc2-423b-b94e-5acbd65ec765

Typically I have these extensions installed, and I've never had an issue thus far: 1. uBlock Origin (also in incognito) 2. Adguard Adblocker (also in incognito) 3. Honey 4. Translate Web Pages (though it's left disabled, unless needed)

Why do I use two adblockers? Because one or the other isn't typically sufficient, and I find those two to work together the best.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Can someone tell me how to uninstall this extension? I was trying to add extensions that make PDFs of web pages. In the course of doing this I ended up getting an extension that periodically pops out a page of reviews that it's already shown each time. It brings me to a blog by a Harlan Gertz. I've turned off any extensions that didn't say who the creator was. I don't see any by this name. Still it pops up all the time. How can it be popping up this website if I don't have an extension that is made by this person? Is there another way to force pop-ups? Does anyone know the name of this extension? Thanks for any help. I really want to avoid having to re-install Firefox. This is on a Mac.

Hello, John aka Beer Gutt here.

A while ago (about three months), I moved my hard drive to a new PC with better parts. It has a better mother board, a better graphics card and twice the RAM. Anyway, since then Firefox hasn't worked the same. When i open Firefox, there will be random pieces of letters or words on a webpage just gone, making a lot of them impossible to browse because I can't read half of the the new Alien dialect on the screen. Some websites have been better than others, but its gotten to the point where some web pages (Like YouTube or Reddit for example.) will just be a mess of random de fragmented lime green blocks that completely corrupt the page and will shift, move and appear at random covering up text as I scroll down. Videos will play just fine, it's the rest of the site that's effed up. Also on YouTube videos, where the timer for the video is located, some of the numbers just won't show up. Like it will count down fine but won't display certain numbers in the timer. Funny thing is, is that this doesn't just affect the websites, but the browser itself. For example, hovering my mouse over different tabs will highlight them and show me the preview text of the tab. All that is good until I move over to a different tab and voila, the text is gone, and then suddenly all the other tabs are either blank or just missing random letters and numbers in the tab. This is only happening in Firefox btw. No other app on my PC is doing this. I've tried refreshing Firefox about six times now, I've uninstalled it three times in an attempt to fix the issue along with restarting my PC multiple times... All of that, and I find out yesterday that it works perfectly when in "Troubleshoot/Safe mode", and only when in Troubleshoot/Safe mode. I have no idea what is causing the issue... *PePeLaugh* 
 See, I would use another browser but I've been using Mozilla for 8-9 years and would like to avoid the hassle of moving everything to a new browser... I would VERY much appreciate any help at all.
 I'm running 64-bit windows 8.1 on the latest updates and my PC specs are roughly as follows below. I look forward to a response...

AMD FX(tm) 8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.00 GHz

Hi, Guys

I just got an email from Mozilla telling me about their new upcoming service to remove personal information from the web. In that email there was a link to someone's "free personal data removal workbook and credit freeze guide". I clicked on that link, and Norton blocked it as being a "dangerous webpage".

Norton also says "You attempted to access: https://gate.sc/?url=https%3A%2F%2Finteltech..."

And that, "This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page."

So, what's going on here? Please let me know.
