I had screen tearing and graphical glitches when browsing. [layers.acceleration.force-enabled = true] solved screen tearing, but I still had some graphical glitches from time to time which now seem to have been fixed with [layers.force-active = true].

Could this be a working configuration on the long term? Currently it is running like a charm...

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and had already turned off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling without the desired results before trying the above-mentioned things. I also played around with the xorg.config.d settings of the OS...

Best regards Mike

Dear mozilla community,

I cannot get firefox to start, and I need help to troubleshoot this. What I already did:

  • remove and reinstall (apt)
  • rename ~/.mozilla to trigger recreation
  • start using the command line
  • start in safe mode

The only symptoms are <defunct> processes (see screenshot).

I need more information to find out what went wrong. Where can I find this?


Details

  • apt
  • firefox_78.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb
  • Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia

The profile folder on the new installation is to be replaced with that from the old. So far so good, I've copied the profile folder from Windows and now want to exchange it for the profile folder on the new Ubuntu computer. Problem is that this is the very latest Ubuntu version (only a few weeks old) and there IS no profiles folder in Firefox!

What there is, is a profiles.ini file but I am reluctant to put it in there because it does not appear to have anything to do with the contents of the ex-windows profile folder.

There is an option to create a new folder but I'm not at all sure what this would do.

Hope you can help

Blessed be Karma

This question was asked 6 months ago and I have the same problem.

Running Ubuntu Mate 21.04 (metacity), FF 91.0.2 (64-bit). I have it set up with two different profiles, with separate menu entries for each using "firefox -P [PROFILE NAME] -no-remote %u". One of them is set to always use private browsing mode and I use that profile as my default app in mate.

If if set chrome as my default browser, I can open links from other apps without a problem regardless of chrome being already running or not.

When I set FF as default, whenever it is already open and I try to open a link, I get a "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile." error.

I've seen some comments about similar issues with wayland and tried setting MOZ_DBUS_REMOTE and even MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND to 1.

Can you help me?

Whenever I end up browsing online with Firefox, from time to time, Yahoo Answer crops up with no warning and is not even installed on my system nor is it an add-on, I am wondering if Yahoo Answer Browser is actually a virus interfering with peoples experience online and if it is being deliberately done by those who run Yahoo. As it has hampered me on many occasions with the research I am doing. Asking me to sign up for a network I quit over 10 Years ago of the problems it caused back then, its also why I switched to Mozilla Firefox, which is much more stable.

This is why I feel Yahoo Answer has become an internet virus, it is everywhere where you do not need it.

I have not used my PC for three weeks and today I tried to log in to my Amazon account, but every time I tried to do the login it crashes, I also found it to crash in other websites like Reddit and the AMD Support Site. It is Firefox 58.0.1 64-bit in Ubuntu 16.04. I tried refreshing firefox and nothing, it also removed all extensions leaving only the default plug-ins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash. If I disable them manually the websites will still crash. The only way Firefox will work normally is if I restart it in Safe Mode. I also tried installed the new 59 64-bit Beta version, but is causing the same problems.

The latest submitted crash reports are:

bp-5f7cae12-c429-4dd7-b794-8e4cf0180210 bp-8b31fc05-ede6-4d6c-8cd9-10efc0180210 bp-dd409298-45fb-43bb-8fa5-a02d00180210

While using Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS and FF 71 When I go to www.Pluto.tv a free TV site and leave it running for about 40 minutes or more the message " a script on this page may be busy" this always happens both on Ubuntu and another Linux system. this problem does not occur on my Mac OS. the problem when left alone the CPU goes very high on the Linux system preventing any usefull usage of FF until it is closed and reopened.

The message that pops up suggests FF is interuppting something incorrectly. Anyone with a suggestion to stop this problem? Keeping in mind FF plays with no flawas for more than 40 minutes

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and after the latest update I ran on Firefox, loading a webpage left me with a white screen/page in the browser. I removed Firefox, reinstalled, started it up and had the same results. After that, I removed the ~/.firefox folder, supposedly containing user and browser settings that are kept. This fixed the browser, but I noticed my laptop fan working at full speed. I opened the System Monitor and saw that a core is running @ 100%. I'm attaching two screen shots of this, opening 2 tabs (facebook and soundcloud) and keeping them open. After closing the browser the processor goes back to idle. I'm wondering whether someone could help guide me.

This sounds more like an issue with Microsoft but it probably isn't because other browsers like Google Chrome doesn't have this issue. The domain "attachment.outlook.office.net" is unreachable/unresolvable in Firefox (58 and earlier versions) in Ubuntu 17.10 64-bit. All the attachments that are delivered with Outlook are hosted in this domain and whenever I check Outlook e-mails using Firefox in Ubuntu the attachments are unavailable. They are there in the e-mails, sort of, but they are shown like shortcuts that don't lead to anything.

Hello everyone, i'm currently on ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, and pretty frequently 1/2 times a day, when I'm on youtube, the browser just starts messing up completely the audio. It is delayed by at least 2 or 3 second, and it is all confused by a really awful interference noise. The problem goes on if i don't restart my browser, or sometimes even my pc. I tried disabling hardware acceleration but it doesn't work

What is going on with Firefox on Linux? It's been my favorite browser for years and I want to stick with it, but it becomes unusable.

I've got 32GB of RAM, so I should theoretically be able to open quite a few tabs (which I need as a web developer), but when I have about 15 tabs open, it consumes about 1GB of ram per tab. Usually I have some webmail tabs open, google drive, youtube, some documentation and references, github, example sites... you know, the usuall stuff you find in a web dev's browser.

I'm running the latest updates on Ubuntu 20.04 and have the latest Firefox installed. On my Windows (dual-boot so the same computer, but windoze is more for gaming than for work), I can open 50 tabs and have no memory issues at all. I'm syncing my extensions so it's the exact same configuration, yet on Linux it's huge a pain in the behind to keep using it.

Are there any fixes for this? I've seen other complain about similar issues for previous versions of Firefox and other Linux distros, I've ran through all the self help suggestions and nothing helps.

Hello,

what can i do when i get a message "Sorry. We just need to do one small thing to keep going." with <Restart Firefox> or "Gah. Your tab just crashed." all the time i open firefox? A restart with Add-Ons disabled does not help. I send the troubleshooting information from Help/Troubleshooting information. As one can see Firefox does not seem to produce crash reports either.

Both firefox and thunderbird crash directly to the "Mozilla Crash Reporter" on startup. This also happens in safe mode.

So far I re-installed firefox through the package management (first completely removed it including configuration files, then installed it again). The profile created by the re-install is still completely empty, there is no data from the original profile and no plugins.

The button to automatically add troubleshooting information doesn't work for me (probably because I'm using chrome now), so I'll try to add relevant information. If anything is missing, please ask.

Firefox version: 55.0.2 Crash ID: bp-ced2e336-0d1a-40a4-9f45-e88b70170913 OS: fully updated Ubuntu 17.04 (64bit) Graphics: Intel HD 5500

Many preferences don't sync, and it is sooo annoying to change them again every time I log in into a new Firefox instance. Can you please get more options to sync, such as the ones mentioned in the title?

Related to this, extensions that are installed not for the first time should not open new tabs (or at least an option should exist for this). And the preferences from the extensions themselves should also be synced.
