Hello Community,

I would like to start by sharing this screenshot with you as it help gain a better picture with the below info : https://snipboard.io/9z1FVU.jpg

I tried to access this URL (on my computer using Mozilla browser): torproject.org but after quite some time to load I got the error message in the screenshot.

I tried to access the same URL on my phone through the Mozilla app and it worked.

I have experienced the "The connection has timed out" with other websites as well.

Two questions.

1) Since I want to download Tor on my computer, how can I get it to even open up this webpage?

2) How can I prevent future "The connection has timed out" error messages?

I am looking forward to your assistance.

Thank you

About 25% of the time when I click on a link in YouTube or other places, or open in a new tab, the new tab appears but there is no "hourglass" to say it is processing. If I close the tab and do it again it works and there is an hourglass and then it completes. I think it started with 84.01 but got better on 84.0.2 but still happens maybe 10% of the time. Thanks

When using my computer today Firefox began not working, I would open it though clicking or running as admin, and it would open then Immediately crash, I've attempted to delete the profile files to force it to create a new one, I've attempted to use backups to see if it would fix, I've refreshed my Firefox account using another pc logged into my account in Firefox. Ive attempted to use the "firefox.exe -P" command to force the profile to open but that instantly closes like the browser, and at this point im out of ideas on what it could be. Any suggestions or solutions?

I use Firefox on my various devices and I've never faced this issue before. On my new laptop which is a XPS, whenever I let my laptop go to sleep, once I return it from sleep Firefox is unusable (frozen). I can do other things with my laptop but I can't interact with Firefox in any way as it is completely frozen. Sometimes I am able to open a new tab but can't type anything into the search bar.

What I do to use Firefox right now is kill the process in task manager and launch Firefox again and for the most part I am able to use the browser but it is very tedious having to do this. Some steps I've tried to permanently fix this so far are disabling hardware acceleration and disabling disk caching but nothing seems to have fixed the problem so far.

My employer uses the G-Suite at work. I use Firefox on my company computer and on my personal computers.

On the afternoon of Jan. 20, I lost access to Google Calendar. It only shows the dates and a crawling blue ribbon, as if it's trying to load my calendar and failing.

I ran some tests with my company computer and my personal laptop. Here's what I found:

  • I can access all the other G-suite components (Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive) from Firefox on both computers.
  • I have the latest version (84.0.2) on both computers.
  • I can access Google Calendar (and the rest of G-Suite) using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Sounds like Google implemented something in Calendar that doesn't get along with Firefox. Has anyone else seen this issue?

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

2 weeks into my new MAC mini (my first MAC ever so I'm still learning!)...and Firefox worked perfectly until today. Now it freezes on the initial screen every time I run it. The only time I solved it was rebooting the machine...which worked...once. It locked up the very next time. Reloading Firefox doesn't fix it. Just a reboot.

Most of the answers I saw said Version 84.0.2 was the fix for that...but that's what I'm running. Any further suggestions? With my rookie status on the MAC. it could well be operator error. Thanks everyone!

Hello. This question has been translated using machine translation. Inaccuracies are possible. Sorry.

Firefox closed unexpectedly while watching TV online. Several windows appeared with messages about the ransomware program, as well as about the recovery of 18 files. Mac OS was checked for viruses by Avast, which found nothing. After all this, the Firefox browser stopped starting. Uninstalling followed by cleaning and reinstalling did not help, Firefox still does not start showing the following error:

I just got a Pi 4b with 8gb. So I picked up SanDisk MicroSD 64 GB with 170Write.

Loaded the Ubuntu Desktop 20.10. It boots in 30 seconds. Wow...

Printer setup was super easy... Had to add Clementine to Play M4A music from itune files.

Ok... Loaded just fine. Plays Great. The Ubuntu 20.10 comes with Firefox 81.0 browser. My favorite Browser. Went out to my Favorite Anime site to play some video. Animefreak.tv

Error loading player: No playable Sources Found

Well the Video Codec plugin not there. Checked the Add-ons Enabled

 OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.

This plugin is automatically installed by Mozilla to comply with the WebRTC specification and to enable WebRTC calls with devices that require the H.264 video codec. Visit https://www.openh264.org/ to view the codec source code and learn more about the implementation.

 ! OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly.

So I installed the new version of Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit). ok. I am using it now. No Video play back in Firefox on Ubuntu 20.10. Same Problem. I turned on the Allow Automatic updates in firefox openH64 Video Codec. Maybe it will update and install. Well I am not holding my breath. Its to bad, because the Pi 4b is just as fast as my Laptop HP envy running win10.

If you can find a fix. I would be grateful.

How is this still a thing? Chrome can open any PDF file correctly. Any PDF file I open in Firefox shows the text as blank spaces, and I get the message "This pdf document might not be displayed correctly". Why? Why do I, with Firefox, need a 3rd party PDF reader? I shouldn't have to. Even Microsoft Edge gets this right.

Hello,

When my Openconnect VPN is on, Firefox takes very long time to open links from outside its own window: ie links opened with xdg-open in Linux (Ctrl+Click). If Openconnect is Off, links open almost instantly as expected.

Here's /etc/resolv.conf when Openconnect is Off. And here /etc/resolv.conf when Openconnect is On: search contains 11 internal domains. Environment: - KDE Plasma 5.20.5 - Firefox 84.0.2 - xdg-utils 1.1.3 - networkmanager-1.26.4 - networkmanager-openconnect-1.2.6 - openconnect-8.09

System proxy settings: No Proxy

What I have tried: - Start Firefox in Safe-mode (no effect) - Explicitly setting Proxy to None / System Default in FF settings (no effect) - Opening links resolvable only inside VPN and just google.com (no effect) Only turning Off Openconnect helps so far. I suspect it's got to do with name resolution (maybe routing as well?), but have no conclusive evidence. Btw, Chrome is not affected by this behavior.

Thank you

Hi Forum Folke,

I keep having issues with Firefox (84.0.2) when trying to make online purchases... the dialog window (PayPal or whatever) that should pop up doesn't. The purchase process stalls because the next step doesn't happen. I have to use Chrome to make the purchase instead. This didn't happen until the last upgrade, now it's a frequent problem. Doesn't happen on all sites or with all vendors, but often enough to be a headache.

Since this is a 64-bit browser, should I be using the 64-bit version of Java, or does it not make any difference? If it does (or might) make a difference, how do I tell FireFox to use the 64-bit version (installed in the programsx86/Java/32-bit directory)?

Thanks for your help!
