Foxfire (100.0) is unstable on my MacBook Air M1 OS 11.3.1. It frequently slows down its loading of site data, to the point of timing out Or simply crashing. At other times it is completely normal.

Of the 3 in the house, this is the one connected to the incoming router from the ISP. The other two are connected by wifi, also using FireFox but completely free of the laptop’s seizing up. I have sent in a dozen FF Crash Reports

Even on the laptop, when slowed down to a crawl, the Ookla speed test shows the ISP’s full connection speed of 250MB/s

The problem has survived: • clearing the OS’s DNS cache • running it on the wifi mesh (disconnected from the Ethernet hardwire)at the other end of the house • refreshing FF using “Troubleshooting Info” • clearing FF StartUp cache • clearing FF Cashed Web Content (which quickly climbs back to ~800MB — is this a reasonable load?)

It is now asking me to confirm whether, with CMD-Q pressed, I really want to quit. I am in HTTPS-only mode, and it fails to recognize an HTTPS url, asking if I want to continue on to the HTTP site.

The laptop has run FF for 16-18 months before this showed up. Possibly at the time when I started to delete all cookies (with exceptions) at quitting FF, and enabling HTTPS-Only mode. But reverting these also makes no difference.

Do I have to ditch FF and use Safari?

For the first time in a week I went directly to my GMX account but couldn't se my emails, contacts or any information other than the form layouts the pages are blank, however in Opera everything is seen. Also for many months Firefox doesn't allow the Recaptures to load so many sites, and services like sending of contact forms, wont work, its extremely frustrating as Firefox has all my passwords. I could go to Pale moon is the PW's can be shared as a FF user of over 20 years it is my preferred browser and would appreciate these issues resolved please.

Firefox crashes randomly with no crash report being generated. It seems to have started doing this about a month ago. Nothing in particular seems to trigger it, and all of my software is up to date. It just closes any and all tabs that are open, as if I exited out of the program entirely.

Hello,

Despite the setting that Firefox never automatically deletes my history, it appears that a large part of my history was automatically deleted. Hence two questions: How can I set Firefox in the configuration so that my history is guaranteed to really never be deleted? Is there a way to recover the deleted part of my history, if so, how?

Thanks and best Regards, Andreas

10+ times a day I'll go to search something using the address bar (google search) and it won't search anything. At the same time it won't load any new tabs unless they've been opened recently and it will open them offline. To fix the problem you either need to fully close out of Firefox and reopen it or open a new window in Private Mode and search something (which loads the pages) then exit out of Private Mode and research in normal mode and it will work... It also won't load certain aspects of websites like automation's in Salesforce, but if you open Private Mode it will load those aspects perfectly.

I've been noticing lately that Firefox takes a while to start loading pages after it requests a restart or recovers from a crash.

I've followed all the advice in the forums including disabling session restore, but the problem persists.

It seems to be doing a lot of disk activity when it restarts either after requesting a restart or if it crashes and I start it again.

Anything I can do to address this issue?

Firefox is causing loud fan noise and very high CPU usage. It is to the point I am going to have to stop using it.

Here is my info: iMac 27" 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 16 GB MacOS Catalina 10.15.7

Increased usage happens when there are 3 or more tabs are open or any sort of streaming on one tab. It goes up and down, but reaches up into the 90% area.

There must be a fix for this. No other browsers have this issue.

Hi, I browse exclusively full-screen, and I've had a recurring headache making the annoying full-screen animation go away since the inception of Firefox itself- it is the best browser by far and I am loathe to use anything else.

This question comes up time and time again, disabling animations through about:config is very much hit and miss and seems to work completely randomly, sometimes it does, sometimes it don't.

Well, now it don't. Again.

I have the following set:

full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout: 0 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay: 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout: 0 dom.animations-api.core.enabled: false

Oddly enough, there used to be options for setting "cosmetic" animations too, but I have no option to change that since FF 100.

Can someone please let me know how to solve this because the annoyance is big enough for me to switch over to Opera or some other browser permanently for how consistently unreliable this function is.

Thank you.
