"We're sorry Firefox had a problem and crashed - same fleeting pop-up every time I close down the computer

I use Xubuntu OS and installed Firefox from there many 4 months ago on this my new laptop, from Ubuntu repos. I now do not know what version it was.

About a month ago I noticed that every time I closed down the computer I saw a flashing image of what appeared to be a message from Firefox. It disappeared before I could read what it was about.

I uninstalled Firefox totally yesterday by purging the system, deleting the folders/files in /etc and /usr relating to it. I downloaded it from repos and installed it again However, the flashing image still appears every time I close down.

I decided to video the close down to pause it and see what this message was about. It was as I said in the subject above. I found two crash reports in about:crashes and have submitted them.

Please tell me how to stop this repeating message.

Also, when uninstalling Firefox I saved the logins and passwords but was unable to use the resulting csv to recover them. Is there a better way than manually?

I have used and updated Firefox for years. I am now on v79. And in my prefs.js file (about:config) there is tons of old crap. Things like references to old addons which cannot even be installed any more and were removed during updates, prtiner setup stuff for printers I no longer own, and something that is causing the rendering of chase.com to be messed up and the site unusable in FF.

Is there some reasonable way to clean up the prefs.js? Using about:config does not seem to remove entries, only reset them to default. If I exit FF and edit the file in my text editor, FF doesn't work right when re-started - I have to restore the profile folder from a backup.

There must be some way. Any help/tips?

Thanks

I have a brand spanking new system with Win 10 installed on SSD. I've been using it for about a month and it works great. MS updated edge over night (SURPRISE) and now Firefox has been slowed down considerably. For example. Facebook loads OK, but as I scroll down, the "Like", "Read More" , "Comment" links don't work for a bit. On this site trying to bring focus on this text area is laggy. Not like before update.

They seem to show up after a while, but it seems like every site is somehow s-lo-w-e-d since this 'update'. I re booted and also ran the 'quick fix" option but stuff is still slow.

Of course the update can NOT be rolled back. Do y'all imagine this is intentional or just my imagination?

I have three browsers on my Dell Latitude E 6320 Windows 10 operating system namely Edge, Firefox and Google Chrome. Firefox is my favorite browser among the three which has been working normally untill a fews ago I decided to make Firefox as my default browser.

Of recent when I click on the Firefox Icon to surf the internet, a small window appears making reference to drive C:\windows\system32\......... with something like .dll at the end of the path and some statements which disappear before I can completely read the contents of the small window. As the small window disappears, Firefox launches up and remained launched with nothing else happening. Even when I type Firefox address in the address bar and press the enter key, nothing happens. The text message "Hand shake" with any site address typed into the address bar that is usually displayed at the lower left handside of Firefox page before the required website is connected and displayed, is no longer been displayed. I have uninstalled the 79 version and reinstalled the same version which I have just downloaded for resolving the problem, thinking that the uninstalled one has been corrupted, but the problem still remains.

This is the problem I am experiencing with Firefox browser presently hence I am asking for assistance of how to solve this problem from the community.

Thank you and for looking forward to your response.

When i try to look at an image on firefox in it's own tab so i can see it bigger, it instead opts to download it instead of just showing it in the tab itself. This is annoying as I don't want to have to make a whole folder just for images that i've seen once and then never look at again. is there an option i might have chosen at some point that enables this? i'm not too sure. please help if someone is able to.

Windows 10 *N version*. Can Firefox be 'convinced' to stop depending on WMF? Workarounds?

Hi.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro 2004 *N Version* x64 and latest Firefox. I understand there's a problem with Windows N versions that can be solved by installing Media Feature pack. The problem is... MFP also installs full Windows Media Player and who knows what more. I won't install the full MFP, but I wouldn't mind to add some DLLs or registry keys to circumvent the problem.

So far I've tested Youtube and some other sites and apparently WebM videos run OK (got no problem with Youtube at all) ... but can't play videos on Twitter. Tests seem to show there's a problem playing MP4 videos. Also, it looks like Widevine isn't working.

So... can Firefox for Windows be configured to use ffmpeg... or some other woraround to stop depending on Windows Media Foundation (I assume that's the root of the problem)? If not... any 'hack-ish' way to add just the bare minimum Windows support infrastructure to allow Firefox to play those videos?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi -- a Firefox problem has started recently and has since happened numerous times.

In this case, the PC was restarted from 'Sleep' mode. It does happen in other situations though. Out of sleep mode all apps have come up normally - except Firefox. It is still running, I can see it in task manager. I can see it on the taskbar, but I cannot switch to it, as I can the other apps. I can also see it on the alt+tab view; pls see attached screenshot prnscr.1.jpg, which shows the alt+tab view. Here you can see that Firefox displays in some minimized form, along with Firefox history and an Editplus document. However, Firefox is not accessible; I have to close Firefox from the taskbar and then reopen it. Otherwise, Firefox is working well.

Can you advise?

Firefox Version 79.0 (64-bit) Windows 10 x64 Pro 10.0.19041.388

Thanks, Jeff
