Since the last Firefox update some websites do not open, but spin forever. Same site and same time open fine in Chrome etc. Same with opening a website from an email, very often they do not open but spin: copying URL to Chrome and they open correctly.

Something must have changed for the worse in the latest Firefox edition.

Occasionally, my browser will freeze and become unresponsive. I can't figure out a consistent trigger for when it occurs. Whenever it happens, my browser will not allow me to click into any of the tabs or on any of the websites, and only shows a resize icon.

You can see an example of what I mean here.

I've tried reinstalling firefox, removing all cache and cookies. This is super odd since this only happens on my desktop computer, and not with any of my other machines (which use the same plugins).

hi,

I get this error message when try to open Firefox "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" When I try to create a new profile I get "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved" I have deleted the profiles.ini file I have reinstalled Firefox several times. I can't refresh Firefox because it won't open. If I try to start it while pressing the Alt key I still get the error message above. I'm running Windows 8.1 I have had to download chrome to post on here. I just want my Firefox back!

Print Preview and Printing may omit info based on P/L layout &/or scale

Unable to print preview or print consistently in Firefox v90.0.1 (64 bit) on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 with recent Firefox update. This results in lost data when printing as sections/lines of text disappear when default used, fit to page used, scale used, etc.... in preview... then mirrored (not printed) on printer/paper. Can't trust print layout at this point... causes finnicking with print settings to show data on preview, never sure if it will print this way... need reliable PRINT PREVIEW & PRINT functions... please correct

I've used Firefox for years and use it to access a Microsoft invoicing portal. But suddenly, after upgrading to Firefox version 90.0, the invoices I need to print from the portal are cutting off the right 25% of the page. I tried going into about:config and checking settings and tried several of the tips from the FF community. Nothing works and I'm absolutely frustrated by this. Hoping someone who has already dealt with this can share their solution. Thanks!

I've only experienced this on Firefox, but while watching multiple videos/twitch streams, video playback becomes very choppy and laggy. Actually, firefox in its entirety becomes laggy. This is not a problem when using chrome/chromium, and my PC is more than powerful enough to handle this, with a rtx 2060 and an i5-10500. On chrome I've watched 4 streams on twitch at once with no issues, but on Firefox it starts becoming choppy with only 2 open. Anyone know how to fix this? I don't really want to use chrome anymore. I'm currently running Pop! OS 21.04, with Firefox version 89.0.2.

Super weird issue that just started out of the blue the other day. When printing out of Firefox (I do this A LOT because I use online bookkeeping software), the right edge of the print gets about 3/4" cut off, even when I have margins set to "no margins" and scaling set as "fit to page width." I noticed this while printing to my Brother B/W laser printer. Today I tried printing to my Canon COLOR laser printer and it prints fine, nothing is cut off. I changed the Color Mode for the same Canon printer to B/W and the print gets cut off. So, apparently whenever I print to a B/W printer or set the Color Mode to B/W, the image gets cut off. When Color Mode is set to Color, it prints fine. Any ideas how I can fix this? It's super annoying. I want to be able to print to my B/W laser printer. Thanks!

Within the past 3-4 week, I am constantly getting messages that FF has updates. These messages are coming randomly throughout the day and when I select "Dismiss", it updates anyway. These updates have caused me to lose bookmarks and saved log in for certain websites. This is frustrating. I cannot go through this everyday, all day. This is my work computer and my technology department cannot seem to find or figure out the issue. I no longer have the option to turn off updates. This is happening on my desktop only. No issues with the laptop. Never had issues with FF updates before; updates would occur overnight and bookmarks were never lost. WHAT GIVES?????????? I have attached screenshots. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the browser. Cannot use Chrome, Edge or IE for the software I use for work; all modules will not work with those browsers. This is a brand new desktop; less than 6 months old.
