I am running 59.0b13 (64-bit) on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with MacOS 10.13.3

I develop a Shopify app and anytime I try to login to a Shopify stores admin panel. Firefox locks up and spins the CPU all the way up. I then have to force quit.

To replicate go to any Shopify store and add "/admin" to the domain.

Hello Support Team,

For a couple of days I am unable to load a couple of site. (e.g. attachment: loginscreen from binanc) To me the screenshot and the behaviour of the other sites looks like javascript is not working properly. I can not login and nothing happens, when I click the "button". I only reach that screen, when I enter the login URL through history. When I open the main website binance.com, it links me binance.com/de and a blank white screen is shown....

As mentioned in another threat (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1221621) I already tried a bunch of troubleshooting, but nothing helps and brings the few websites back working. I can not imagine, why only a very few sites refuse to work, while 99% load and work normally. Is there any way or troubleshooting to reset javascript or something?! And here again: in private mode all site are working normal... Another thing is that, if I

I'm running 64bit Win 7 Pro - Firefox 64 talking across my own network to a Linux server at a static IP running IBM Cognos Analytics 11.12 After every report execution, Firefox hangs for then the yellow "A web page is slowing down your browser" Stop / Wait appear. I choose Stop and I can execute again.

It would be nice to identify the offending page / script so that I could fix it. I could be a part of Cognos Analytics and then I'd have to deal with IBM support. Note: I do NOT get this behavior doing the same tasks with GOOGLE CHROME. But since I really don't like Google Spyware, I'd rather have Firefox work correctly.

Firefox doesn't crash, it just hangs waiting for the page to finish (time out?) or me to select STOP.

At various points in my usage of Firefox, if my default home page isn't ChillTab, and even sometimes when it is, Firefox will randomly quit and restart with ChillTab as the default. Virtually every single time it has happened I was in the middle of watching a video. What's worse is that Firefox will demand updates so as to change the homepage to Yahoo.

When I run Firefox it just churns away and expires. Sometimes, if I just leave it, after ten/twenty minutes it will run v, v slowly. I have uninstalled and installed Firefox. I have the most recent version of Avira [14] and have removed Firefox and added to permitted applications, still no joy. Am writing this from another Browser. Also if I close Firefox and then try to restart I keep getting the Firefox is running... Getting seriously annoying now. I can only assume that Firefox is not quite up-to-date with Avira's version yet. The other browser runs without problem.

Hello, I am using a c# program to send Firefox some commands.Everything works great, but sometimes when I send a -new-tab command like: "firefox.exe -new-tab http://www.google.com"

Firefox freezes for few seconds before opening the new tab.I tried removing all the parameters from the command and just send "http://www.google.com" to the system while Firefox is set as the default browser, and the same problem arises again.

I also tried doing the same while Firefox is in safe-mode and still the problem appears sometimes. How can I troubleshoot this and know what makes firefox freeze for those few seconds?.

Thanks in advance

When Mozilla support sends a reply to my Hotmail account it contains two links. One is "This doesn't solve my problem" the other is "browse for unsolved questions and help a Firefox User". In the Nightly browser, if I click on either of these the browser freezes. No other tab can be opened; the back arrow cannot be used; the refresh symbol does not work; and Nightly can only be closed from the Task manager. Worse, if it is left open it disables other applications. While the task manager is open, if it is moved, it leaves a trail of repeated copies of itself. If Quicken is closed part of the display remains on the screen. Even using CTL+ALT+DEL to refresh the screen and asking only to open the task manager does not resolve this problem. Am I REALLY part of a Beta test or did you all just skip Alpha and give us anything that looked like it could be called a browser?

I don’t know whether this is a problem with Microsoft office, firefox or my machine, I have already contacted apple support, and they said that it was not my machine. When I contacted Microsoft support, after describing the problem they ended the chat without saying anything. So this is what happened: I was at school. I tried to access my outlook email in firefox. I got an untrusted connection page. On the school wifi, since it restricts certain websites, you have to have a certificate installed in order to access secure (ones with lock icon) websites, I think so that the restrictor thing can see what webpage you are accessing. If it can’t read what you are accessing, it doesn’t let you access the page and you either get an access denied page, or on firefox a “this connection is untrusted” page. Earlier in the year I installed the certificate. for Firefox, I could click on a link that they gave us and it installed itself. for Chrome, I downloaded the certificate and imported it into my keychain. So when I got the connection untrusted page on firefox when trying to access a site that isn’t blocked, my school email, which is outlook/office365, since I had heard rumors about an updated version of the certificate, and having to install the new one, I decided to try reinstalling the certificate in firefox. So I used the wifi hotspot on my phone to go to my school email, the page that I couldn’t access before, I went to the school Sharepoint site for tech stuff, and clicked on the link to download the certificate. It said it was already installed. But it didn’t look like it was working on the school wifi, because I still couldn’t use the wifi to access outlook. So I tried to uninstall the certificate. since it said it was a certificate authority, I went into firefox advanced settings > certificates > certificate authorities and deleted the certificate called Bloxx. I might have forgotten a test here that I tried, but not anything else that I deleted. I found that it still wasn’t working. now I couldn’t access outlook at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox. But the certificate I had deleted wasn’t there. I looked in my keychain, and I saw that there was no certificate called Bloxx in my system roots, but the other certificates I had seen in the firefox settings were there. When I got home, using time machine I backed up my computer so that anything I did from there on could be recovered. I hadn’t had any system backups before that. I saw on apple forums that I should try to reinstall the OS. I reinstalled OS X El Capitan. I can see the certificate I deleted is now there in firefox, but I am on the wifi at home which is not restricted at all, and I cannot access the office365, outlook, or any websites relating to that, even the products.office.com site. It says the connection is untrusted. However, on chrome, everything works.

However I have found an article that has fixed it for me.

It turns out that during the upgrade to Windows 10 my Power settings were changed from balanced to stable. I reset the power saver settings back to Balanced (recommended) and now Firefox is back to it's original speed.

I have a computer with Windows 10. For about two to three months from now, every so often, my computer/windows crashes when I open or save a PDF file on Firefox, which is extremely upsetting. I just found out some days ago that Firefox doesn't use anymore the adobe reader plugin, but uses instead its own built-in PDF viewer. When I changed the setting to use the external adobe reader software to open and/or download pdf files, it seems that my computer doesn't crashes anymore. So my questions are: why the bult-in PDF viewer makes windows 10 crash? Will that problem be fixed, and when? and lastly, why does Firefox forces to use its own built-in PDF viewer when it can't function correctly with windows 10? This have been the more upsetting problem I have had with my computer for a long time!
