Mozilla Firefox keeps crashing, mostly at startup and if I do manage to get it running it crashes after a while. Doesn't respond anymore, and even the crash reporter crashes. I have tried the following things:

Clean up FF Reinstall and refresh (last attempt included deleting the entire Mozilla folder in Program Files) several times Updated Windows Restarted laptop after every reinstall attempt

It won't open in troubleshoot mode.

I am running Windows 10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad 540 laptop.

Additionally, neither Chrome nor Edge will let me access the Mozilla.org website. I downloaded the custom installer on my phone and uploaded it in Mydrive to get in onto my laptop.

Funny detail: I am in Belgium. I was in Ireland for a week last week and it didn't happen once. Got back home and trouble was back.

My husband is having the same issues, by the way.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

On my old Desktop with Windows10, I created and saved my bookmarks as backup *.json file on my backup drive. How do I copy this backup to Firefox on my new Desktop with Windows11? When I installed Firefox on my new Desktop, I don't see any way to access bookmarks (because I haven't copied the *.ison file??)

When I paste the following URL into the URL bar, it works on Chrome and Edge, but Firefox returns a 404 (page not found):

https://github.com/nidi3/graphviz%2djava#user%2dcontent%2dhow%2dit%2dworks

How can I get Firefox to recognize encoded URLs?

The un-encoded URL works, but is fragile because of the hyphen-minus characters. The source text is on a Powerpoint slide, and preservation of the hyphen-minus depends on the PDF writer, any PDF tools used (croppers, n-uppers, rotaters, page manipulators/extractors/combiners, etc.), and the various systems on which the document is processed.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

I have to switch to Chrome for that as well. It's a nuisance. How do I fix it? I'd rather use Firefox but I have less problems with Chrome. However all my bookmarks and browser bar links are on Firefox which is why I would rather stay with Firefox.

I've turned off all add-ons and that hasn't helped. I've made sure to update the browser as well. I've gone through the different firefox support pages and nothing has worked. My audio works fine on chrome or any other program. Please help resolve this issue as it is very frustrating.

Hi,

I'm looking to sync my Firefox account between my desktop and a laptop. I went to the menu, clicked on the sign in button next to "sync and save data", and landed on the account sign in page. However, after I entered my email address for my account, the page hasn't moved on to ask for my password. The blue bar underneath it is currently doing the circling thing and I don't understand why. I can sign into Firefox on its own, but not to sync.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I have two Outlook accounts registered & one set as default. But, when I tried to setup my default in settings, Apps, default apps, email it only offers me Outlook.com (instead of my default choice) so automatically always selects the mail account I do not want! It used to work OK for years until I had a recent SSD failure & hence I need to reset it correctly. Your help page doesn't seem to tell me how to select the specific mail account I want (i.e. when you have more than one)? Please therefore tell me how to do that & also change your help notes accordingly.

My Firefox is v102, 64-bit, on W10 Enterprise. ESR channel. It keeps telling me I need to update.

Under HELP, it fails to download whatever it is trying to update. Even though I got v102, I tried the online installer (mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new). Thinking about it now, I did not try an offline installer.

I been searching online and tried this policies.json file (github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#backgroundappupdate) with these entries:

{

 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": false
 }

} {

 "policies": {
   "BackgroundAppUpdate": false
 }

}

But still not help.

Is there anything else I can try? There seems to be no simple option to click to not check for updates temporarily.

Thank you.

I run firefox from the command line in a terminal, and recently I have been seeing this set of messages in the term when I load various webpages:

Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index2/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/present Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu Sandbox: unexpected multiple open of file /proc/cpuinfo

Mostly, there doesn't seem to be any loss of function related to this message. However, I have one anecdotal example of a forum website I have used in the past freezing on a blank screen at the same time these messages pop up in the term.

I can find no match for this particular message on the entire open internet. There is one near-match on bugzilla bug # Bug 1718493, but that is solved and done.

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

I like the idea of putting Facebook related pages in a container. Why Firefox does not automatically open a new tab/window for this container so that only Facebook would loose track of my browsing history?

How I can adjust Firefox to always open containers in a new tab/window and leave the original page intact on its tab?

I can — If I would always remeber — open the Facebook related container on a new tab. Why this could not happen autiomatically, or happen based on my container settings? it seems all I can adjust is the colour of the bar above the tab.

I other words: What is the advantage of me too loosing connection to my browsing history?

Yes, there is a workaround: I can open the container in a new tab if i recall to do so — and yes — I can open "history" and find the page leading to "facebook" from there, but would it not be so much easier, if I could have it done automatically?

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19043.1766], Firefox Browser 102.0.1 (32-bit)

A few days ago, whenever I download an attachment from my email(Yahoo), the tab crashes after I do so. Assuming this is a Frefox issue....but not positive...has happened repeatedly since. Very annoying.

Also, upon restart of Firefox yesterday, all my cookies were reset automatically. Had to re-log in everywhere. This never has happened before, without out me manually doing this.

Any idea what is going on?

Hello, in last few days I notice that when you try to save web page that has title ending with .com or anything like that saved file has .com extension instead of htm. I often use this option and I'm sure it must be one of the latest updates that started to cause that. Any chance it gonna get fixed and Firefox start adding .htm after .com?

For example try saving page https://www.naturalnews.com/ its title is "Natural Health News and Scientific Discoveries - NaturalNews.com" and saved file has .com extension. I need to fix it everytime and add .htm manually.

Hi All,

I just started running a dual monitor set up on macOS 12.4. I have updated Firefox to version 102.0.1.

I'm running into an issue where if I want to have a video playing from a browser in full screen on one monitor, I lose the menu bar and access to the dock on the other monitor. I have set them up so that they behave as separate spaces but the issue persists. It should be noted that this only occurs when I'm trying to use the web browser on the second monitor. My impression of what's happening is the browser thinks that since it's in full screen on one monitor, it should be on the second screen as well. I want them both to act independently of one another and retain access to the menu bar and dock on the second screen.

I've trialed this with Brave Browser and Safari and neither of them have the same issue which leads me to believe with overwhelming probability that the issue I'm experiencing is isolated to Firefox.

I've included a screenshot from my second monitor. On my primary monitor I have a YouTube video in full screen. I think you can see from the screenshot that the Menu Bar has disappeared from the second display. I also have the Dock set to automatically hide and when the video is full screen on the primary monitor, the Dock will not un-hide itself on the second screen. Unfortunately clicking within the browser will not restore the Menu Bar and access to the Dock. Is this atypical behavior?

I appreciate whatever help you're able to provide.
