Over the past few days FireFox v. 99.0.1 had been non-responsive on a tab.

Got to the point I had to close FF and tried to use cCleaner to clear cache/history etc.

However cCleaner could not proceed as it claimed FF was still open.

Using Windows Task Manager I found FireFox was "Suspended" (screenshot 1)

I then terminated the task - so cCleaner could proceed.

Then FF appeared to work OK. Until the next time....

It just happened a few minutes ago closing FF - using cCleaner - once again FF was "suspended" and had to be terminated in Task Manager.

On FF help it said Update to version 100 which I did BUT the update got stuck on the FF Update - for several minutes (definitely over 10 mins) so I had to terminate the FF Updater using Windows Task Manager (screenshots 2 & 3) again used Task Manager to terminate that.

FF appeared to open OK even showed the version 100 What's new tab.

BUT when I used FF help to check version I got Restart FF to update to version 100 (screen shot 4) Perhaps the last might temporary due to terminating the what appeared to be stuck Updater, but it was worth mentioning.

PC details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.19044 Build 19044 System Model HP Pavilion 590-p0097c Desktop PC System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2808 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

Vincent

Just now, I tried to use "Email Link..." under the File Menu and got a pop-up asking me to "Choose an application to open the mailto link." I have seen this before, several times, and usually fix it by going to Tools > Settings, under General > Applications, select "mailto" under Content Type, then select Gmail from the drop-down menu.

This time, however, Gmail is not presented as an option, in this pop-up. Clicking "Choose..." just opens up a Windows Explorer file-picker window.

I tried to fix this in Tools > Settings, under General > Applications. There, "mailto" just shows "Use other..." and if I click that, the "Select Helper Application" pop-up window is basically blank, with a message at the bottom saying "No applications were found for this file type."

I refreshed Firefox but it did not solve the problem.

I have tried to attached images but they will not upload.

I am running v100.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 11

I can't get the "Other" bookmarks folder to go away.

I tried right-clicking on the folder & the context menu didn't show up. I tried about:config & changed the value to false. That didn't work.

I closed the browser after changing the boolean value to false & then restarted the browser. That didn't help.

I don't want to mess things up. I can't change the name of the folder. I was hoping that renaming the folder & then deleting it would solve the problem.

How do I hide the "Other" folder & the "Bookmarks Menu" folder?

I have a Mac if that helps any.

I Keepgetting the message

"Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at cunard.msgfocus.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

How can i stop that so that firefox brings up the web page i am trying to get.

Is this a Firefox problem or a computer problem?

In Firefox, but not in Edge or Chrome, the shaded boxes enclosing text or delineating the page (on any web page, or in a PDF viewed in the browser) are missing.

In Gmail, for example, all the navigation elements above the list of emails are invisible, e.g. the little box and caption for selecting all the emails on the page, or for refreshing the page; and further, if all the emails are selected, the boxes for: Archive, Report Spam, Delete, Mark As Read, Snooze, Add To Tasks, Move to Inbox, More ... are invisible.

At WashingtonPost.com, for example, the banner ads that automatically display at the top of the home page, and at intervals throughout the page, and the shading around headlines on other pages, do not appear.

Find the "switch" that gets "activated" (when using ANY private browser window) that prevents us from using "printscreen" AND...ALL other "printsreen apps" as well (such as "windows snipping tool"). After using ANY private browser, Printscreen just shows an all black screen! Once you've used a private browser window (on a Win 7 desktop)...you no longer have any printscreen ability until after you power-cycle...when it's too late!! Printscreen ALWAYS shows an all black screen!

Try it for yourself on YOUR desktop...regardless of your system!

Only Firefox Browser 100.0.1 (64-bit) and (32-bit) won't respond to HTML <audio> Tag in a webpage. I have 4 computers (tower, laptops and tablet) using Windows 7 or Windows 10 though Firefox won't play <audio> tag sounds on any of them.

        All computers are also running Chrome (Version 101.0.4951.67 (Official Build) (64-bit))  and Internet Explorer (Ver: 20H2 OS Build 19042.1706) and those browsers play the <audio> Tag just fine.  Note: videos from YouTube play video & audio as well as .mp3 files just fine in Firefox.  
       Volume Mixer for Firefox is set to 50%, no mute.  All other applications in Volume Mixer are set the same.   I also deleted browsing history, cookies, Cash, Forms, Offline website data & search history as well as Site settings.  Range to clear 'Today'.  And, Firefox still won't respond to the <audio> tag.  Also, restarted the computer and uninstalled Firefox and re-installed it, no change.
        w3schools.com indicates Firefox first supported the <audio> tag in version 3.5.  
       Coding on webpage is: (javascript) $document.onkeyup(function(i){if(i.keyCode==37){document.getElementById('audio').play();}else{if (e.keyCode == 39){document.getElementById('audio').play();}}})                                                                                                                                                        HTML coding is:  <audio id="audio" controls style="display:none">
  Your browser does not support the audio element.	</audio>.   I also tried including audio element. just before the </audio> closing tag though no change.
      Thoughts?

I login to my.yahoo which I use as a home page. The page loads and all works well for a period of time and then you click on a URL on the page and it just spins and never delivers requested page. If I leave my.yahoo and select another URL within Firefox, it connects with no issue. If I then go back to my.Yahoo and try a URL again it might load and most of the time closing Firefox and reopening it corrects the problem.

I have had this through several versions of Firefox and it only happens when launching a URL from my.yaoo

This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

Foxfire (100.0) is unstable on my MacBook Air M1 OS 11.3.1. It frequently slows down its loading of site data, to the point of timing out Or simply crashing. At other times it is completely normal.

Of the 3 in the house, this is the one connected to the incoming router from the ISP. The other two are connected by wifi, also using FireFox but completely free of the laptop’s seizing up. I have sent in a dozen FF Crash Reports

Even on the laptop, when slowed down to a crawl, the Ookla speed test shows the ISP’s full connection speed of 250MB/s

The problem has survived: • clearing the OS’s DNS cache • running it on the wifi mesh (disconnected from the Ethernet hardwire)at the other end of the house • refreshing FF using “Troubleshooting Info” • clearing FF StartUp cache • clearing FF Cashed Web Content (which quickly climbs back to ~800MB — is this a reasonable load?)

It is now asking me to confirm whether, with CMD-Q pressed, I really want to quit. I am in HTTPS-only mode, and it fails to recognize an HTTPS url, asking if I want to continue on to the HTTP site.

The laptop has run FF for 16-18 months before this showed up. Possibly at the time when I started to delete all cookies (with exceptions) at quitting FF, and enabling HTTPS-Only mode. But reverting these also makes no difference.

Do I have to ditch FF and use Safari?

I have Firefox 99 for Mac "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked History is set to "Remember History" Enhanced Tracking Protection is set to "standard"

Yet every time I return to a site where I've checked "remember me" , I'll get prompted to login, and perhaps also get a security message "you've logged in from a new computer" in my email from the site.

Is there an easy way to verify that Firefox is storing cookies for a site. Maybe an option to right-click on a site's web page and view "cookies are stored for this site" in the context menu? I'm losing a lot of my productivity time logging back into sites that I just logged into earlier in the day.
