I prefer Firefox browser on my computer - currently using 96.0.1

 a month or so ago, when logged in to godaddy email workspace, the subject line cursor won't stay in place.

I'll type a word then space resulting in the cursor jumping to the front of the line of text. Sometimes it jumps after the first letter but always with the space bar and only in the subject line of this website.

If I type a word in the subject line, then space, the cursor moves to the front of the line of text... if I continue typing there and use the space bar the cursor doesn't jump. But if I move the cursor behind the first word and space, type another word and space it jumps again.

I worked with godaddy on the issue... after troubleshooting various browsers (this only happens when using Firefox) and other things they asked me to do they point the finger at Firefox. I hope this can be figured out, I do not want to use Chrome for email. thanks!

For the last week or so, I've started getting an error page with SSL_ERROR_RX_MALFORMED_SERVER_HELLO message when I try to use Youtube. It happens randomly after a while of surfing the net, including using youtube, and no amount of refreshing or reopening the tab would help, I keep getting this error when trying to access Youtube. Only closing and reopening Firefox solves the problem, until the next time. Its so random, it would be working fine and then I refresh or go to another clip and get the error. (Latest version of FF and using W10 on an Asus Rog Stryx laptop.) Help please? Thank you.

Some major probs just developed & now I have a totally different theme & a new version of Firefox 56.0 installed today... See image of installed programs

while I still have Firefox 95.0.2 from 12/20/2021 Firefox 54.0.01 from 8/19/2017 Firefox 61.0.01 from 7/30/2018 Over time newer versions accumulate & I've been told not to try to uninstall any of the older versions as it may crash ALL versions


it happened I think sometime after closing a normal session ... I was trying to clear out everything (junk & temp files etc.) as I normally do when using CCleaner then a message said Previous session not correctly closed a message said Firefox is still running do you want to force it to close" I said yes...then it said "its taking a long time to close... do you want to force it to close? I said yes... this happens occasionally & with EDGE as well...but usually there's no problems afterwards

btw: I'm using [Windows 8.1] & after several attempts at restarting Firefox...with different 'fixes' including using safemode... I did a computer restart ... & I did a regular profile backup last time 12/16/21 so as a last resort it may help...but I'm afraid to try to mess with it

anyway...then I was trying to look up solutions & for those of us who are not tech savvy..there's too much info & too may options & links & they lead to new articles like using about:config & browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash & restoring sessions etc which just gets confusing I copied raw data to clipboard (which is a million pages) & then copied text to clipboard (not as bad...but it may help someone to help me....

hopefully someone can straighten this out for me... I'm worn out trying to figure it out myself thanks

I have Windows 10. Since the last update Firefox has been running very slowly, and scrolling is nearly impossible. I have done everything suggested in troubleshooting including refreshing and and eliminating startup cache. Still Firefox will only run normally in troubleshoot mode. This is true on my desktop in my office. My laptop at home won't scroll in PDF using the up and down buttons but will still do so with the mouse. Other than that, it still runs at the normal speed. At my office I'm using version 96.0.1 (64 bit); I'm not at home to check my laptop.

This is a question in relation to [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1302462|this]

The fix suggested there seems reasonably easy to follow but I'm a bit unsure about this

Delete all extensions* files and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

Apart from compatibility.ini I can see two extensions*, namely extension-preferences.json and extensions.json. Is that correct?

Now I'm supposed to delete those three files. And here comes my question:

What does New files will be created when required. mean? What I'm worried about is that all my extensions will disappear and I will have to start with from scratch reinstalling them all again.

Hi, for the past week whenever I open Firefox (FF) it works normally for about two minutes, then slows, then causes my entire mac to slow and freeze. If I don't force quit FF quickly, my mac crashes. Once I force quit FF everything is fine. I've been using Chrome for the past week or so hoping FF would fix itself with an update but no go.

Anyone else having this issues?

'Release 96.0.1 Does Not Work with Our Ariba PunchOut Catalogs' Users can punchout and add items to the Shopping Carts, but when they try to return the items from the cart back to our local Ariba Application, users receive a "Token Expired" error. When they click the button to return to the Ariba application, there are no items in the requisition.

We experienced the same issue when Chrome released version 80 in February of 2020. We have been recommending Firefox as the preferred browser but now it has the same problem.

Can you provide some way for users to run an older version of Firefox? Version 95.0.2 Works great. I have not upgraded to 96 yet due to this issue. However, many campus users have already installed 96.0.1.

Currently in our environment, only Inernet Explorer or EDGE running in IE mode work with our Ariba Application. Should we advise our campus users stop using Firefox now?

When using Firefox I noticed that some pages weren't loading. I found it weird how no matter how I tried I couldn't get them to load. The already loaded pages were videos which were loading fine. Now nothing loads anymore.

I tried to go into settings or the help menu but those weren't loading. Now I am staring at a blank window with nothing but a search bar that doesn't work.

In the middle of this it came up with an error VIS something? It said that I had a missing file and said that reinstalling Firefox was the way to go. I've reinstalled Firefox already but it's done nothing but remove the error message and I still can't do anything.

Hi; When I close FF (V96.01) it does not seem to close properly and when restarted trys, usually unsuccesfully, to reopen previous tab. I have , open previous tabs and windows, unchecked in settings. I have tried both the X and exit. If I set, browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash, to false in options it does not happen. as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1292610. But when I reset session restore to true the problem resumes. This makes me believe FF is not closing properly Win10 is up to date with all latest updates as is FF.

Is there a fix for this?

I can't do my day job this way. I didn't have the various problems, crashing tabs, difficulty getting to HTTP sites (I can't help how someone has their site set up) when I was back at release 83, as I recall. I want to find a copy of release 83 to install. What I want to know is, Will I miss crucial items if I do this? Thanks.

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too. I am certain that key-presses are being sent, they are just not reflected reliably in the browser. There are more than enough resources available for firefox.
