Firefox wont load pages unless I clear history
FIrefox has really slowed down over the last three months, to the point where it just wont load pages unless I clear the history. This is especially the case with google web apps. I did the firefox reset, turned off extentions, and this isn't a computer issue since its not present on other browsers. I dont want to give up on firefox, but this is a deal breaker if it cant do its core functionality. other people must be having this problem and leaving in droves!
If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.
You can check for issues with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.
- use the "Places Database" -> "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page
If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.
If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from the most recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
- keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created
- you lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created
You may have to restore an older bookmarks backup in the bookmarkbackups folder via the Bookmarks Manager (Library).
- Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import & Backup -> Restore
You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
- Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
This problem still persists on a mac running big sur 11.5.2. Multiple times a day websites wont load on firefox, and the only solution is to to go to clear recent history > and check active logins. Its very frustrating to constantly clear data and need to sign-in to things every time I use the browser, so likely to stop using firefox over this
From the cmd line can you run the below cmd and past results like mine.
cmd - cat /etc/resolv.conf
results looking for: nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199
This is what i received when i entered that into the command line:

I assume nameserver 192.168.0.1 is your router. What do you have set for DNS on your router?
