Hi : )

I love Firefox, and I find it simply excellent. But...

in the last months Im having lots of FREQUENT crashes. I dont know why.

it often crashes (even 20-30 times a day), mostly with an empty page (#argh this page was closed), sometimes the program closes by itself, I restart it, it goes for some minutes or even less, and the the problems are back again.

I tried many solutions: I reinstalled it, I tried the safe modus (it crashes thesame way), disinstalled all the plug ins. disintalled the firefox accelerator. tried windows10 compatibility solutions, I created a new profile. i have the latest version, of course.

I have these issues ONLY with firefox. maybe is the 64 bits version? my laptop is 2 year old.

it does not get any better with the above solutions.

below the copy of a mozilla crash report (there are many I just picked one)

could you please help? what can i Do?

thanks a lot merlino

I have trouble accessing some websites where is CloudFlare protection. It keeps repeating and repeating check of browser and it never ends. Example of website which don't work: https://ddlcmods.fun/ . My computer was completely reinstalled week ago to Windows 10 and Firefox is fresh too so there can't be problems with them. I was googling it and found that can be problem with time zones which I tried to change and no luck. Also something with DNS where I don't try because I'm afraid of doing something wrong. And I tried same website with Windows edge, there was no problem, it successfully passed check. I hope for fast response. Here is screenshot of problem below.

I copied my firefox default profile onto a thumbdrive, and am trying to add it to another computer in addition to the default profile already there.

I want to KEEP the existing default profile on the computer as the default, and simply add my profile from the thumbdrive as a second available profile but NOT as the default profile.

I first tried copying it as it was, e.g., with the "default" extension. I put it in both the root and roaming firefox profile folders. The profile manager isn't "seeing" it for me to rename it, however - either with firefox open or with it closed and launching the profile manager using the windows + R keys. Then I tried renaming it in windows explorer, changing the "default" ending to my name - the firefox profile manager still isn't seeing it. Finally, from a support question here, I tried going up one level into the firefox folder, and renaming the "profile.ini" to "profileOLD.ini" That simply created a new blank default profile, and when I launched firefox it said that mozilla hadn't properly formatted their security certificates and an exception couldn't be made... so I deleted the newly created "profile.ini" file, and put the "profileOLD.ini" back to just "profile.ini" - and now firefox launches properly and I'm back where I began, still unable to access the profile I'm trying to import.

Help please!

I have had two links that won't open in webpages in FF. One was a MD government page, one was a private school webpage. They wouldn't open in safe mode. They won't open after a re-start. I have not un/re-installed or cleared cache/cookies. Most other links will open, and even the two lonks that won't open WILL open in explorer. I checked the add-on manager and it says I don't have any add-ons of this type installed. I do not understand add ons, but I read the FF update about extensions. I am not techie and do not understand enough to make sense of the self-help articles.

Every once in a while I'll get a yellow bar across the top of whatever website I'm on, claiming that an addon has been disabled, stopped working or is not compatable. It has a link to see what the problem is and this page is the one attached to this.

It displays no missing addons and the link to fix it is as not helpful as it just takes me to the addon homepage rather than the page for the replacement/updated addon.

Getting very bored of it now as it happens about once or twice a month and has been happening for several months. If it told me which addon was bust I could at least have a clue of what to look for but with zero addon listed as broken/missing/not compatible or whatever this is clearly impossible!

I wish I was a computer nerd but I'm not so, any helpful and jargon and code free suggestions welcome.

Many thanks.

Hello everyone.

I have an Alienware 15R3 with 16GB of RAM + Windows 10 ( with lastest updates). Since the last Firefox update to version 59.0.3, every time I play a video from Youtube or any other video platforms, it consumes up to 6.5GB of RAM, no matter if video is 4K, 1080p or 144p. Also, fullscreen mode is unaccesable and trying to close the tab takes to long. In case you wonder, this occurs with only one tab open, the one used to play the video, no more programs, no more tabs or downloads, nor extensions added neither.

I've test the same videos and platforms in Edge without problems and no high ram usage (~800MB). ¿Is there a solution for this?

I need new fonts for Open Office but any instructions for adding new fonts say to follow instructions for adding fonts to my browser, which is ?Firefox. But I can't find anything in Firefox to help me do that. I have downloaded several zip files and have unzipped them but they remain in my download file. Where should they be for use by OpenOffice?

I am not sure exactly what happen. One day I found a program on my computer by which I could supposedly access TV Channels and watch TV. I deleted what I found of it and forgot about it. Initially I did not find it strange but than realized there was nothing to 'uninstall' Some days after that I tried to go to add-ons to make some changes. That was the first time I was send to the Google search webpage. I am the only user on my computer. I can't think of anything other than this mysterious 'TV program' that could have something to do with the add-ons access problem.
