My history is not showing, my auto entry is not showing, and my bookmarks are all not loading. I have tried importing and exporting as well. Export is blank(nothing is happening), When I try to import from the Auto-Backups (I did not make manual saves), it says Unable To Recover File.

I have looked in the browser for profiles, and it shows only the one currently in use, no old profiles show.

Any help would be appreciated!

Multiple websites will not load properly in Firefox unless I am in private browsing. Some examples are netflix.com, xfinity.com, pinterest.com, and many others. Elements of the page will not load, or will not be functional. If I load the same pages in private browsing, it works fine.

Also, these same pages will work if I load them within a few minutes of launching the browser. An already open tab will usually continue to work, but if I open a new tab or reload after the initial few minutes, they stop working.

This is a hard one to provide steps for reproduction. The next time it happens I will take a screenshot.

The issue is as follows:

I'm on a 64 bit Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS machine, with Firefox 66.0.3 installed. Every now and then (roughly once every 1 or 2 hours) I will do something in the browser, whether that be open a new tab, press play on a YouTube window or something else, the window will turn invisible. The frame of the window with the name of the tab up the top is still there, and I can drag it around no problem, but the actual content of the window is not there, I can see straight through it. At this point I've sort of ruled out it being an OS related issue, as Firefox is the only program on my system that seems to have this issue.

Any help would be much appreciated.

bp-cac6787b-d36b-458b-96de-f8b0b0190503 The browser crashes while loading a page when visiting sites. Youtube and twitter sites on start-up and other sites when browsing through them, even on the Mozilla help/support pages. Tried all the solutions as suggested on the help-pages, de-installed Firefox, peformed new installation and a new profile. No improvement, still crashes. One oddity in the crash report; "CPU Info-warning: family 20 model 2 stepping 0 ". The crash-problem started a few weeks back, before it worked good for years. No changes in the hardware or software are done on my behalf and everything is kept automatically up-to-date. Any advice or direcions to a solution are really appreciated. Thanks in advance, Dionysius

Hello: The above error occurs at every boot of an up to date Arch linux system. `systemctl` spams my `syslog` with (complete error message):

     firefox.desktop[1772]: [Parent 1772, Gecko_IOThread] WARNING: pipe error (67): Connection reset by peer: file /build/firefox/src/mozilla-unified/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 357

I have no idea about what it may be. Booting involves launching mozilla firefox automatically and along with it opening multiple tabs inherited from the last session. Any help welcome. -ced.

Firefox 66.0.3 is constantly crashing on Windows 10 64bit. It doesn't matter if I am actively doing something or if it is idle. The frustrating part is there is nothing in about:crashes to indicate why this is happening. I've tried reinstalling, refreshing, etc. to no avail. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

I've been getting huge CPU spikes in the past month(s). I don't remember exactly when it started, but at least 3 weeks ago. Firefox completely freezes, which means I'm not even able to check the about:performance tab to see what's causing the spikes. The first uploaded image shows a frozen tab, all my tabs look like this.

This also happens in safe mode, with all add-ons disabled and a default configuration. I haven't tried completely reinstalling FF yet, as I was hoping an update would fix this. The second uploaded image shows the output from the top command during such a spike.

What can I do to better diagnose the problem? Are there external tools I can use to find the source of the problem?

I'm running FF 66.0.3 on an up-to-date Ubuntu 18.04.02, on a Lenovo T480s with an i7-8550u and 16G of memory. Can I provide any other useful information?

Thanks!

My first attempt to create this sync account was with a new alias address that had not propagated through yet. but it has now and is fully functional, but I still get the 'red box' error: "Your email was just returned. Mistyped email?"

I tried refreshing the page and starting over. Didn't work. Did you guys stash that email on some "bad email" list because of the initial bounce?

Thanks, Paul

Firefox used all RAM and SWAP taking mins to load freezing system, then dropped to less than a gig.

System Details: Firefox 66.0.3 64bit Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (Xenial Xerus) Linux version 4.4.0-145-generic (buildd@lcy01-amd64-027) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0… (read more)

System Details: Firefox 66.0.3 64bit Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (Xenial Xerus) Linux version 4.4.0-145-generic (buildd@lcy01-amd64-027) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.10) )

  1. 171-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 26 12:43:40 UTC 2019

Opened Firefox one day, and soft-locked my system for several minutes. Killed it... repeated this process over a few days. Today finally opened it and just let it run to see what would happen. Ate all available ram. Then the swap. When it finally maxed both everything emptied out. System is now using less than a gig of ram and about half a gig of swap for everything.

Any idea what just happened and how I prevent it from happening again? I will also note - I have a lot of tabs.
