Hi all, Long time user of Firefox and love it, however on my work computer it is very unstable. When loading up it seems fine until I click into another window and on returning FIrefox is is full screen mode.

I then have to Alt\view\fullscreen and then top right, restore to see the taskbar once again, however on top of this it seems very unstable and often when trying to click back into Firfox it will not allow me to do so and appears as if it has crashed. I then have to Alt-contr-del to close the program and stat again.

Have tried resetting Firefox without joy so a bit stuck as to what the issue could be? Any assistant would be greatly appreciate as I run all the same plug-ins on my home computer and works perfectly!

I tried to open Firefox yesterday and got the following error message:

Mozilla-Firefox 64bit. A required privilege is not held by the client.

I uninstalled Firefox thinking that reinstalling would fix the problem but when I attempted to reinstall Firefox I got the same error message.

This is on a Windows 10 64bit machine.

I think its a Bug. But I want someone to check if it is just on my installation. 1) Go to this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elvis_Presley (as an example) 2) Press ctrl-f to open search bar 3) Write the word "Born" ( Firefox finds it 12 times) 4) Click Match Case and only 2 matches are found. Good. 5) Refresh page (use F5 or the circle-arrow) (Search bar still says 2 matches) 6) Click The down-arrow (Find the next occurrence of the phrase) Now Firefox finds all 12 matches _NOK_ To resolve either: 7a) Press Match Case twice or 7b) Rewrite the search term

Is it like this only for me or for everyone? Thanks!

This video (or any video on Safari Books Online for that matter) randomly loads. Sometimes it does, most times it doesnt. It loads fine on Chrome and Safari. I tried disabling all add-ons and refreshing Firefox, but nothing fixed the issue. The page would load and the embedded player wouldnt play.

Hi all,

We use Firefox ESR (and Thunderbird too) in our company, and there a problem only under windows 10 (it's ok under Windows 7).

Under Windows each user has a network drive as user home folder.

FF & TH profiles are locate in user home folder (H:\.system\{FF,TH}\profiles.default

Everything works fine but after couple of hours (very randomly), FF crash on every HTTPS website with this error : Connection blocked. Potential security issue.

The only way to fix it is restart Firefox. When Firefox is closing, I can see this errors In the Windows Viewer Events :

-> Information - Application Popup - Event 26 - Delayed Write Failed : Exception Processing Message 0xc000a080 Parameters 0x7ffe5d272d58 0x7ffe5d272d58 0x7ffe5d272d58 0x7ffe5d272d58

-> Système - mrxsmb - Event 139 - {Delayed Write Failed} Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \.system\Firefox\profile.default\favicons.sqlite-shm. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection.

The mrxsmb event only appears on severals .sqlite-shm files

There is nothing abnormal on the side of the server hosting the profiles. The logs server reveal nothing and indicate no more than with Windows 7 client PCs compared to Windows 10.

After delving into google for these error messages, tricks like disabling TCP Offloading or Opportunistic Locking don't work.

Firefox Safe Mode doesn't work.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance :-)

Verizon.com and StateFarm.com do not allow me to login where they did in the recent past. After the login attempt, the Verizon screen keeps refreshing and the StateFarm screen displays code. I can login to these websites using other browsers. I was able to use FireFox to login to these sites until the last FireFox update. Can you please tell me when the next FireFox Update will be and if there is anything else I can do about this problem. Thank you!

I restarted again normally, refreshed Firefox, and used Firefox in Safe Mode. Crashes started again.

Windows 10 64 bit, Firefox 7.0.2 After I log into an Etrade account, if I click on any link (such as a stock symbol) within the account, I am returned to the Etrade login page. If I use the back button on the browser I am returned to the page I was on (I was not logged out). I never can get to the stock symbol or other link within Etrade. I have tried changing every add on or extension change (especially security settings), refreshing Firefox, running in safe mode and actually reinstalling Firefox without success. I think I have seen this on other websites also, but this type action does not happen on all websites. This does not happen when using Chrome.

Dear All, my Firefox is broken. It starts and shows a blank tab, but I cannot open any site, not even about:config or the options pane. Typing anything in the address bar or the search bar and pressing Return does nothing.

The only things I can do is opening new tabs (which will remain blank), and clicking on menu items in the main menu. None of the items that would open any dialog works, though.

So far I have tried:

  • Starting Firefox in safe mode
  • Creating and using a new profile (firefox.exe /p)
  • Uninstall FF and re-installing the latest version
  • Uninstalling FF and installing a previous version (downgrade), using a new profile
  • Deleting all mozilla and firefox entries in the registry in an uninstall / reinstall cycle

Now I am out of ideas. Any help is welcome. Thanks!

After a recent beta version installed, my profile seems to have a corrupt configuration file. But I don't know how to figure out which one. It only happens on my Windows 10 laptop. My profile syncs with another Windows 10 laptop, 2 user accounts on a Linux Mint desktop, and an LG phone. I followed the support article and changed the settings so that I was only on the release channel, rather than the Beta channel. I tried the Refresh Firefox. After resyncing my profile, the error returned. I uninstalled the newer Beta release, completely deleted the User/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla folder. I reinstalled the current release (72.0.2). After resyncing my profile, the error still returned. Every time I start Firefox, I get the annoyance of the error dialog box. After clicking OK, Firefox opens and works perfectly fine. How do I find which file in my profile is causing the error on just one computer?

Clicking on a link to a local file works ok for .odt .ods .pdf etc, but not for .doc or .xls. These cause a "not found" error with a file reference which is truncated. The files in question all open perfectly through W Explorer or through the Open command. This all worked ok in early December, but has recently faulted. The links work ok in Internet Explorer, so the fault appears to be in Firefox v71.0 64 bit running in Windows 7.
