A tab for the Etsy website automatically appears every time FF starts up. How to stop this?

Just began after using the site a couple of times, but I did not indicate or click a setting on the Etsy site to ask for this.

All solution suggestions seem to be for pop-up ads, and don't work to block a website. Is there a way to block this?

I'm not very good at English, so I use a translator. After updating to the latest version of Firefox, the problem I'm having is that when I play a YouTube video on the web side, the playback box will have a large white colour, as shown in the red box below. I would like to know what is causing this, my current version is 123.0

I want to uninstall and maybe re-install some add-ons. But when I goto the add-on page. It just appears blank. So are some other pages in the support/ help sections. Another most notably, is (via menu) help -> more troubleshooting information. It just sends me to a blank page! See the uploaded images for the pages I get send to.

Help please with changing my add-ons

Hi Windows 11. Every time I open a new tab and make a search I get a field under the bookmarks for my google account. I do not want this. On the web it says I should go to account settings and scroll down to the Linked Accounts section. I cannot find that section. Elsewhere I read that I have to do something in my google account as well. How do I get rid of the field for my google account when searching in firefox, please?

I have a problem. When I access my Firefox main default screen I open up a respective website I want to access but within a matter of a few seconds the main default screen automatically opens up again meaning I now have two windows open which shouldn’t happen! I have opened up ‘Help’ and have refreshed Firefox a few times now. Additionally, I have opened ‘Troubleshooting Mode’ which comes up with ‘Restart’ then ‘Open’ and I have ‘Refreshed Firefox’ from this option. I have cleared my Cookies and Cache. I asked for help through the Firefox Community. I received one response asking if the problem still happened in ‘Troubleshooting Mode’. My response 'yes' it does but I have not had any other reply. Hence, I am stuck. Nothing has worked which I find very frustrating. I have used Firefox for many years now but if I cannot resolve this matter I will have to select a different browser which I don’t really want to do.

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1440193]
When I open Firefox, the tabs from the previous session do not open despite the setting. I end up with a start page showing only a new tab page. This has been happening over the past few days and I don't know why.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening.

To whomever this concerns,

Paul from Mastodon said I should submit a ticket with my crash reports.

'Firefox has become unreliable at times in at least the last several weeks, I don't remember exactly how long. It gets to the point where any new tabs are non-functional, I have to restart the browser for Firefox to start working again.'

I recently submitted unsubmitted crash reports, I'm not a Mozilla dev, but I noticed a common theme is: "Quota manager shutdown timed out." A one-off crash was "IPC FatalError in the parent process!"

Here's my crash report id's:

  • bp-9291ac3b-dd78-4d93-829b-ae3f20240218
  • bp-39c08644-0905-4518-9fac-1068b0240218
  • bp-87b98b15-3ef7-4943-a4e5-3074e0240218
  • bp-f54527e8-b3cc-43c0-8267-026000240218
  • bp-45f66e51-03e7-4d5c-8328-43db30240218
  • bp-bbe53c10-725f-40e8-9b7c-680d0024020

Idk if this is helpful.

Idk if I'm the only one running into these issues, but if the average Joe was, I could see them abandoning Firefox due to these annoyances; so with your dwindling marketshare, I hope this is something you can resolve before it bothers too many people.

Best of luck~

For the past couple of months I have been getting the message www.bbc.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR when loading pages on www.bbc.com website. I have done a search on the internet and it seems this is a common problem with Firefox and does not affect othere browesers. I have done what was advice given online but it does not solve the problem. It is getting so bad I may have to start using one of the other browsers even though I prefare Firefox.

Hi. I am running a 3 monitor setup and I like to keep open quite a few tabs. And two windows of Firefox. So two Firefox instances with several tabs on each. But because it eats a lot of memory, I have to close and reopen Firefox from time to time. And to my annoyance, sometimes it "forgets" about one of the windows. So opens only one instead of both. Therefore I loose some quite important tabs. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you.
