When I open articles or posts on yahoo.com, Firefox will not allow the twitter or other links to be viewed on the page. I have tried with add-ons disabled and in Private mode. These can be viewed in other browsers without a problem.

Do I need to turn a feature on or off?

Have tried just about everything (i think) as i have read in the other support posts. When i boot my computer and try firefox, it loads for a second and then crashes asking to send the crash report and to restore the tab. I click yes and it crashes again with the same window. Sometimes if i reboot it all of a sudden works. But literally everyday when i log on for the first time it crashes, then i reboot and sometimes it crashes, and then sometimes on the second reboot it just works somehow. I have tried installing earlier versions, refreshing firefox, starting in safe mode etc.

Here are a few of the crash IDs that were submitted successfully (others failed to submit). Thanks for your help.

No matter what version of FireFox i use it constantly lock`s up , freezes. Nothing works to resolve the issue, restarting the desktop, refreshing the desktop. The only thing i can do is kill the process or reboot but the problem just keeps coming back without fail. I`m using deb 10.6 with a dell i5 4th, gen with plenty of ram and hdd space, it`s a new install at that only about a week old. I have noticed this has been a problem with FF ever since i started using it many years ago.\ The others are all the same, it seems that people and companies don`t take much pride in their work anymore. You see this everywhere not just with FF.

I also noticed that when "Share Data" is checked Wikipedia is mentioned, this site is so subjective it is not allowed to be used by any University student for research so why it it doing being used here ? The other problem is if plugin info can be seen and recorded why are extensions allowed in the store that supposedly block this info from being collected when they don`t work, this feature proves it, if it's supposed to be blocked then it would not be published in the form even after clicking "Share Data" clicking anything is irreverent it should be blocked no matter what.

Finding out that this issue has been happening for about 3 weeks now. Previously, our shipping/receiving guy would log into FedEx through Firefox and then have to print receipts, shipper info, etc that would normally size to a standard 8.5" x 11" sheet. However, at some point several weeks back, that paper size changed to half that width but kept the length. (Attached is a screenshot). I did try the following:

> Going through the "about:config" and replacing/updating the "prefs.js" file -- no good.
> Updating Firefox. It is running the latest version -- no good.
> Updated Windows -- no good.

Initially, I thought it was a glitch with FedEx but then narrowed it down to being specifically a Firefox issue. He is currently running the FedEx through MS-Edge and not having the printing issues that are present with Firefox. Last week, I uninstall Firefox completely and then reinstalled it, but the problem still persists.

His system is a Windows 10 Pro and does have a couple of thermal label printers hooked up to it but they are not set as default. Presently, this appears to be the only issue he is having when printing from FedEx through Firefox. It's like Firefox has latched onto the size of the label printers and will not let go.

Any suggestions? Thanks. BGunn

Page refreshing after form submission leads to an outdated webpage

I am a user of the http://loza.nazwa.pl/zakonacporady/forum/ forum, based on the my little forum (https://mylittleforum.net/) script.

In the last days, after one of the most recent Firefox updates, the forum users observed a strange page refresh behaviour: when a user posts a new message, posts a change to a message or resets the unread messages by using a button on the webpage - she/he gets the outdated view of the forum. Without her/his changes.

She/he must explicitely reload the forum page (Ctrl+R) to get the new content.

Is this a result of some newly introduced pageloading optimisations? If so, is it possible to switch the optimisations off by a Firefox settings (globally or just for the webpage)?

Best regards, D. Wroblewski

Hi. I'm Greg. Two questions.

1. Lately, after an update for Firefox 2 times ago, I've been have a message like, "Page is slowing down the browser." Stop it or Wait?" I go to the same sites in chrome and it doesn't happen. I like Firefox. I've been using it for years. Do you have any ideas? I've only added one add-on, DuckDuckGo, lately. The problem started BEFORE I added it. Greg

2. I had problems signing into support. Now, at the top of my browser, is jgdolezal1. I've never had it before. Any ideas?

Thanks

Greg

Am not computer savvy, but know just enough to get by with performing most routine desktop usage tasks .. I am running Windows 8 on a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop which uses Intel's built in HD graphics 2500.

Up until Firefox update 82.0.2, I had no issues with Firefox whatsoever. Applying the update to 83.0 resulted in numerous error messages along the lines that my display driver had stopped responding (but successfully recovered).

While glancing through some of the event error logs, as best I recall having seen, at least one made a reference that Firefox could not access the graphics card (or something to that effect).

I then opted to perform a system restore and rolled back my system to where I was once again using Firefox update 82.0.2 successfully and without issues. FYI, I am using the last intel display driver available for my Dell, so updating my display driver isn't an option.

Unless and until others report a similar issue, guess I will continue using Firefox as updated to 82.0.2 and not downloading any further updates. Any comments would be appreciated.
