Everything was running JUST FINE before i turned on my laptop to find things had changed without my permission. Im just a basic man, not an I.T SPECIALIST. I just want to get on the net, thats it! Is that too much to ask seeing that with free will we chose Firefox, but its no better than any Microsoft crap. Takes hours to correct, if at all what these fools do to my routine online after their stupid updates. These fools must expect that everyone is a qualified proffessional who has plenty of time to fix this update mess. Its not the case FYI Firefox staff. And this stuff has been going on for years too and looks set to never end. Why cant my home page remain the same because guess what, it WAS working great until this so called update. What a mess.Firefox have caused me.

How the hell do i get my ORIGINAL, UNALTERED HOME PAGE BACK? Home tab disapeared as well which is common i see and has been going on for years now without an end in sight.. We seem to be the ones wiping Firefoxs arses, like little babies.

JUST SOME FRIENDLY INTELLIGENT ADVICE. HOW ABOUT DOING UPDATES WITHOUT TURNING EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN. Probably too much common sense for people today. Best thing is to just keep this internet to a minimum or you will be tearing youre out regularly.

Thanks Firefox for wasting my time on numerous occasions. Im very grateful for your expertise.

My download speed has been *very slow* lately and I cannot figure out why. My Internet speed is around 3.3 MB/s, but Firefox is downloading files at around 40-80KB/s. Nothing else on my system is downloading/uploading at all, and it's only Firefox that seems to have this issue. If anyone has potential solutions, I'd love to hear them.

Firefox 89.0 for MAC is a disaster. Tab toolbar is above the URL bar -- Horrendous. Worse yet, is that tabs and links are loading SO SLOWLY!!! I have deleted history and cache. Have rebooted and reloaded. Still a mess. Can I go back to previous Firefox? How do I do that? Is there a way to fix the slow load. I am just hating this new situation. A total mess.

The newest version of Firefox 89.0 (20210527174632) was installed the other day and now I have all background colors in light gray.Tried to change themes - I have default in light colors, but even the when picking the theme it is displayed with night blue background for tabs that are not open (what I used to have) - instead now I have all tabs and the menu bar in the same bland light gray color. Please help me establish my old color scheme before the upgrade. Thank you.

My copy is totally unresponsive. I am getting error "Gah! your tab has crashed". I have tried everything I could on the net but to no avail. Urgent help requested. I am hopelessly dependent on Firefox and can't think of using another browser.

Attached is a screenshot of what I saw early 6/9 when I opened Firefox. I had about 40 tabs open at the time, none of which seemed to be hogging power or memory. At first I had some apps running (you can see which ones in the task bar), and then closed most of those apps but all the other tabs had the same issue. I restarted, and just as soon as I clicked "Restart", Windows crashed and said "...have run into an unexpected error". Don't remember if there was an error code (I don't think so). After the check and restart, a new version of Firefox launched and seems to be working currently.

Any guesses as to why this happened?

When i updated i lost all my bookmarks but my issue is that randomly firefox will just stop responding? when i open a new tab it wont load so i close the window and try to reopen it but an error message pops up saying im trying to open an older version and it forces me to 'make new profile' then it opens an older version and prompts me to update even though i already had, so i update and then i have to sign in to everything again. and this has happened multiple times so i started making bookmarks of all the tabs i had open so i dont lose them and them save them as backups, but i cant restore the back ups

This is actually an issue with my wife's Windows 10 computer.

It was working fine earlier today - I was on it doing something. Then, still running, , I right-clicked on a link to open in a new tab, and a new tab opened and nothing loaded. Thought I'd made a mistake and typed in an address. Nothing. Then it started working with me doing nothing more.

Now my wife brings the computer over, and she's having the problem. Even if I try to load tools or options or addons, or type about:config - nothing loads. Just a blank tab. I can open tabs to my heart's content. Just can't put content in them.

Internet is fine and other browsers are working fine accessing the web.

Firefox has the same problem in safe mode, or if refreshed, by the way.

if I load 2-3 YT videos in tabs, the playback stops, changing tabs takes seconds, and also slows other applications down

YouTube Music (music.youtube.com) is inaccessible via the regular window of Firefox. However, I can access YouTube Music via a 'private' Firefox window. This started occurring during penultimate update to Firefox.

If I search for YouTube Music, a link appears, but when I click the link literally nothing happens. The page remains as is.

Hi for a while now, few months Firefox crash like crazy on my PC

Sometimes it would just crash at start, and refused to open Sometimes tab start crashing, and eventually firefox crashes

Common sites where i see the crash happens are cnn.com and nba.com

I usually restart my PC , refresh firefox or reinstall it to get rid of the crashes but this is very tiring , very tiring

I am sure its something on my PC that causing the conflict, because even reinstalling doesnt entirely fix it

But i have no clue what it could be

After auto update to FF 89.0, access to long-time Fidelity account is intermittently blocked as a security warning, or causes DSL line to drop at submission of account security code, or displays account entry page as plain text, not std HTML formatting, or most often results in a technical error page saying try again later. MS EDGE works fine, no issues. This is the only webpage this occurs on. Fidelity has no FF reported issues on their end nor does my IP supplier. Using desktop PC, running Win10/64-bit, DSL line @ ~ 2.3 Mbps. Using the "Light Theme" which was auto set with 89.0. This plus the new bastardized menus will push me to drop FF since I can't afford endless hours to fix basic functionality with ea update.

Ever since I installed version 89.0, the back button has at times not worked. After going to a new page, the button is highlighted as if it were functional, but pressing it does nothing. It does not go back or show the recent history. Neither going to a different site nor opening a new tab or window helps. Rebooting solves the problem temporarily.

I have not determined whether the problem arises after visiting any particular sites.
