I clicked the green "Automatically add" button for "Troubleshooting information:" just below this text box, and it took me to a dead page, and lost everything I had typed (yeah, rookie mistake on my part, fine)... the landing page address: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/426841/addon-426841-latest.xpi ..
.. with text: "
We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for.
The page or file you requested wasn't found on our site. It's possible that you clicked a link that's out of date, or typed in the address incorrectly. "
..... and continuing on for a bit after that.
basic problem is described in subject line. I could gripe endlessly about prior disclosure, and how appalling it is to see this problem persist over several versions, but mostly I'm curious how it does not seem to have been asked / answered yet?
I will upload screencaps if needed, but I am going to a banking website, entering UID & password, and telling FF to update the password. Not only does it not update for that UID, instead putting it into the "no username" storage for this website, but it is storing asterisks (in the same amount as the actual password) instead of the password. Yes, I clicked on the little "eye" next to the password field under Tools.Options.Privacy .. and yes, I tried trusting and just using the stored password both for the UID (it kept the old password) and also for the "no username" and neither works. I can update the password manually when under Tools.Options.Privacy, but I do not have the time nor inclination to do this for hundreds of logins.
This is entirely unacceptable, and needs to be fixed post haste.
Now copying and pasting everything I typed here, because I fully expect that I'll click "Post Question" and all will be lost...
FF 71.0 64bit updated 09 Dec 2019 - Win7 home 64 bit .. hardly any addins/plugins as the ones I used have mostly been deprecated through all the updates.
My profile along with stored passwords has been carried forward through at least three years of updates with no problems, prior to Quantum.

today i used my browser completely normal, everything worked just fine. After i started doing my Windows Updates though and also updated my Anti Virus Software, Mozilla doesn't start anymore, I cant end the task/process either, not even via system32 cmd command (taskkill /IM firefox.exe /t /f) because it tells me that I don't have the necessary access to do that.
I need to fully restart my Computer to kill the process. When I start it in safe mode via windows+r run command (firefox -safe-mode) it started up once, and now it doesnt do that either.
I really don't know what exactly caused this and it started skyrocketing my blood pressure after I reinstalled it 4 times now and it still didn't working.
Firefox crashes on webpage opening in New Tab since 69.0.0, random occurence, does not generate crash reports.

Finally decided to make a topic about it as all of my attempts in the past few months to fix it have been in vain. Starting from Firefox 69.0 or even perhaps in 68.0, I cannot exactly remember, Firefox started to randomly crash when I opened a New Tab and tried either Googling or opening a webpage through the address bar. This crash does not create any crash reports, going to "about:crashes" does not reveal anything, neither are any crash reports stored locally.
I have tried running Firefox in safe mode, without extensions, deleting my cache files from APPDATA/Local, deleting my profile files from APPDATA/Roaming and a lot of other stuff I honestly cannot remember anymore, but nothing has helped. I even tried downgrading to 68.0, but I received some kind of big warning message and did not want to proceed.
The issue itself in essence is a full freeze, which sometimes takes a second until firefox crashes, but sometimes takes 15 seconds. During that time the only thing I can see in Task Manager is that Firefox has a "Very High" power usage, which is bizarre, since I am not even running it on a notebook (i7-9700K factory clock, RTX 2080S, 16GB DDR4 RAM). As said, it never produces a crash report, so I have been reluctant in reporting it in the past. And since it is random and can take many hours to occur (or can occur first thing after I turn on PC and open Firefox), it is basically impossible for me to record a video about it.
(While writing this, I went to look something in a new tab, tried opening my Gmail account and the crash occurred. Added a task manager screenshot about what I meant by power usage. Fortunately it allowed me to restore the session and I did not have to re-type the entire text)
From what I can gather, the issue started to happen around the time I switched over from GTX 1070 to RTX 2080 SUPER GPU. But I cannot really imagine how a GPU upgrade could influence Firefox stability. Even less so since the same Firefox issue has persevered through multiple GPU driver updates.
Hope you guys have some suggestions what to try here. Perhaps some changes in about:config that could help me out here?
Thanks in advance, Rasmus
