When I try to use a platform like Netflix i get repeated error messages that WidevineCdm has crashed. This happens also in other browsers. I am not very tech savvy, but I've tried all the solutions I was able to understand on here and through Google, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Can any one advise?

Not sure if this helps, but here is one of the many crash reports I've sent: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/75e61622-4282-4a83-b86e-9861a0210422

Hello,


since the last automatic update of the Widevine Content Decryption Module (updated today, automatically) the plugin keeps crashing when I want to watch "TV" waipu.tv. I have already re-installed firefox etc, it just won't work.

I have submitted several crash reports, this is the latest: bp-7bc4b8a4-e59b-4f7e-a840-7c0720210422

See screenshot of "crashed"-notice below.

What can I do to fix this?

My tabs are frequently crashing and some strange behaviors occur with firefox after these crashes (adblock failing to work until browser restart, browser going blank for a split second). My browser also occasionally crashes, and even more infrequently my entire computer will crash which usually happens after series of tabs crashing in a row. It may be a ram issue but I have no problems with any other programs on my computer so I doubt that.

My tabs are constantly - several times a day, every day - crashing. I'm not watching any videos, I've tried a clean (deleted profile folder) install, and turning off hardware acceleration. It's not anything attached to my profile, as I sync with a 2nd computer that has zero crash issues.

I had a different issue I came here for, but I discovered a very serious bug while I was writing my question, so I want to make sure this gets addressed first.

After writing my question, I clicked the "share data" button below. I got a message "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps. " Without thinking, I clicked the link to the "manual steps." Unfortunately, instead of opening a new tab, which would be the expected behavior, clicking the link took me off the get help form page (the page I'm on as I write this). What's worse, when I used the back button to return to the previous page, everything I'd written was gone. Obviously, the expected behavior would be to not take the user off the page in the first place, but if for some reason it did, to autosave the writing so it can be restored when the user returns.

This kind of bug used to be a lot more common in the early days, when I first started using the web, 25 years ago. I used to have a boilerplate describing the problem because I was sending reports of the bug so frequently. I've only encountered it twice, to my recollection, in the last 5 years. Firefox's website would have been one of the last places I'd ever expect to find a bug this glaring and elementary.

Thanks!

So I've been experiencing a rather annoying bug/issue, and I have a work around for it, but I would love if anyone could help me figure out the issue at hand. I couldn't find a relevant, up to date solution for this issue.

Basically, certain websites (the most notable being Reddit) will eventually no longer load. In fact, it won't even try to load. I will click a link from a Google search, or even just type in the URL for Reddit directly, and Firefox just does nothing. No error, no loading, nothing. The tab will stay blank with the URL listed as the name of the tab. I can't seem to tell if other browsers have this issue as it requires a bit of use/time to pass, but it doesn't seem to be an issue in Explorer. It isn't JUST Reddit, but it's only a couple of sites that this occurs on.

I do have a workaround --- if I tell Firefox to "Forget This Website" - suddenly it will work again. I will be logged out and see the default page due to having deleted all saved dated - but the site will work (for maybe a day) before I have to forget it again.

If this was a once a month type issue it wouldn't be a big deal, but the fact that I have to constantly re-do my local settings because of this is frustrating.

I am running Windows 10 and my Firefox version is 85.0 (64-bit). I have tried disabling any add-ons such as my AdBlocker, however that does not fix the issue.

Hello, I am a screenreader user and since updating to Firefox 86.0.1 (64-bit) I have encountered a serious bug on Netflix that is very easy to reproduce, even for those who don't normally use screenreaders. Serious in the sense of making the site unusable once it hits. It happens with both the screenreaders I use, Windows Narrator and Non-Visual Desktop Access (NVDA).

Basically on Netflix if you do something to cause an informational alert (such as adding a film to your list), then this alert is read out over and over, indefinitely. You then can't hear anything else such as a plot synopsis, or if you move to a different button, you won't hear information about what button it is, as the screenreader just keeps re-stating the same alert. The looped alert keeps playing even after you start watching a film or show. As I say, the site becomes unusable. Whereas in older versions of FF such alerts would be read just once and that was it.

To reproduce: Start a screenreader (the built-in Windows Narrator can be toggled on and off with ctrl+win+enter). Go to the Netflix website (you may need an account and to be logged in). Pick any film or series tile, and do something like press the 'add or remove the item from your list' button. Or press it's 'rate thumbs up / down' button.

You will now hear something along the lines of 'alert: item was added to your list' repeated over and over.

Another example is to start watching a show with a skippable intro (such as Homeland for example). You will hear 'alert: press the S key to skip the intro' repeatedly.

As I say above, in older FF such alerts were read out just once.

So, is this a known issue? Thanks for reading.

My Firefox installation (86.0 64-bit on macOS 10.15.7) always crashes on opening gmail.com. It seems to be on the point it loads the hangout stuff, but that's subjective. Also seems to happen on other google domains, like meet.google.com

Some Crash ID's bp-b0a5daca-f85f-47dc-a306-647250210306 (gmail.com crash) bp-d4e0a614-cea4-41b3-b665-e5abd0210306 (meet.google.com crash)

What I've done:

  • Tested if crash happens in safe mode (yes)
  • Refreshed my installation: still happens
  • Removed all cookies for google domains, still happens
  • Created a fully new profile, crash still happens
  • Installed a new Firefox from the website, crash still happens

When viewing gmail with my personal account, Firefox is crashing after it loads the conversations in the sidebar.

I have tried resetting, using a private window, and running in Safe Mode

Here is the crash report Id: bp-b36c8ee9-37cb-4dec-9380-2f6320210228

I can repeat this at will. I will try disabling the conversations bar using another browser and then update to see if that helps (it's not crashing when I view my work gmail).

Thanks for your help ;-)

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.
