I noticed that firefox stays in memory after I close it. In fact, If I open and close firefox 10 times, ten processes are shown in memory, each consuming around 100Mb.

I'm using Windows 7 in my corporate computer and I have been using Firefox 65.0.1 x64. I've tried to use it in safe mode (no add-ons) and problem persisted. I uninstalled it, deleted all Mozilla data in AppData and ProgramData and reinstalled it fresh. The problem persisted.

Then I installed the 32-bit version of Firefox and the problem is no more. Is it a bug that has to be fixed or some setting that shoudn't be enabled?

Thank you.

So, after installing the latest updated firefox at the weekend and after having a look around the new version, I immediately ran into problems. It seems more like a newly installed web browser rather than an upgrade, apart from the ugly UI, I also seemed to have lost so many things especially username and passwords that FF would normally store were not carried accross. That was not the worst part though!

The very next time I tried to start FF however things got worse, I just got an error box instead and FF would not start, "XML Parsing Error" it read. So at this point I have no working FF web browser, the fix was to uninstall FF and download and install an older version and disable updates, now all is back to normal and all my username/passwords have still been maintained too!

I am running Linux Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS if that helps.

I am not sure what to do now, if I keep the older version that works, I do not get the security updates etc, but installing the current version won't run and when it did, it didn't keep all my settings from the previuos version?

Each time Firefox is updated I keep getting Firefox Not Responding, and this happens EACH time there is an update. Refresh does not help. New tabs open up very slowly AFTER getting Not Responding. Changed performance settings with no change. I do not have any add-on. This is truly very disruptive. If I could figure out how to import all of my saved web pages I would stop using Firefox and use Edge. As of today I HAVE NOT received any answers on how to correct this problem from Mozilla

I have followed the instructions in the support section very carefully and still cannot get Firefox to update. I did see the note that the person who is the admin or the person who installed Firefox is the only person who can update it. That would be me and me alone, and I've exhaustively checked my Mac's settings and preferences and everything else I can think of. I'm new to Mac so I may well have missed something important during set-up...........but I can't figure out or find what that may be. Whenever I follow the link on the support page that says I can update, all it does is download the updated version of Firefox, not an update. I don't want to start all over and lose all of my bookmarks and developer tools just because something isn't working. I realize it is probably something rather simple, but I just seem to be missing it and I've passed the frustration point now.  :) Thanks for any assistance in getting this straightened out!

Hello, My Firefox was always crashing so when I tried to uninstall I would get an error message (don't have it now). My 15-year old went into CCLeaner and deleated all the registry files, programs and folders to do a new install. Now when I try to re-install using the latest download I get the following two errors:

WerFault.exe - Application Error: The application was unable to start correctly (0x000279). Click OK to close the application.

Firefox Installer.exe - Application Error: The exception unknown software exception (0x06d007e) occurred in the application at location 0x000000076F4B832.

How do I fix this so I can go back to FF and off IE?

I have to use Windows 10 (Home v:1703).

I'd like Firefox to be my default browser, but it's not listed in 'Choose an App'.

There's just Microsoft Edge listed, along with Internet Explorer, and an option to choose an app from the shop.

Microsoft Edge is also presumptuously shown as the default app to start with.


If Firefox isn't listed, how can I set it to be my default browser - or, isn't this 'allowed' in Windows 10 ?

First of all, I'm using Mac. And so, if my firefox is not responding or still lagging, I always force quit it right away. However last night it didn't work like that. My firefox was usually fine after I forced quit it and started it again, but yesterday it crashed from when it was starting.

I'm flustered and try to open it a few more times, but the result was still the same, crash and crash again. Firefox tried to give me options by using the safe mode. I thought it could work if I went with the safe mode, but unfortunately even in safe mode, my firefox still crashed.

And just like that I also don't have a choice to access the troubleshooting menu in firefox because it crashed before I could go there. That's why I'm here to request help.

This is the report ID I just submitted a few minutes before posting this. bp-7dbf5090-1315-48b5-af5f-fe7d20180523

If you need details of the report just ask me. I've already copied that from the crash reporter. Thank you!

Windows 7 Professional Firefox 64 bit stable, up to date

Its is running on a 10 year old slow computer, the add-on script is unresponsive because it is running on a slow computer.

I had a similar problem with "Warning: Unresponsive script" but was able to get rid of those annoying notices by setting dom.max_script_run_time to zero.

I do not want to stop the script, the add-on adds security. I just do not want to ever see one of these notices on that computer ever again. I have to deal with them dozens of times each day and only use the computer for a few hours. Each time it interrupts what I'm doing to take me to a different tab to slowly deal with the problem.

The problem isn't the add-on script being slow, its the computer being slow. And the fact that the warning gives me no way to disable it so I keep getting it time after time after time...

Thanks

Greetings. I'm opening this ticket because Firefox on my computer will always give me a Couldn't Load XPCOM message, and will not load any website. Even the settings won't open, or about:config, or anything at all.

I seem to have stumbled on some other questions who had the same issue, and the answer was that an update had failed and some files had been mixed up. In order to try to fix this, I have tried:

- Firefox Safe Mode - Refreshing Firefox - Reinstalling Firefox (In Windows 10's Safe Mode, and/or without my antivirus on) - Uninstalling Firefox and Reinstalling (Again, in Safe Mode and without any antivirus on) - Installing the developer edition of Firefox, which seems to be giving me the same problem - Rebooting my computer several times during these processes

I have backed up my profiles from %APPDATA%, just in case. What do I do in this situation?
