Recently Firefox started "crashing." It would be running just fine, and then websites would just stop loading. If I clicked a link or searched for something, it would be stuck loading until I restarted Firefox. I tried restarting my computer as well, but that didn't work either, as the issue just came back within a few hours.

Sooo I went to google to search for answers. I got to a forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/881250) that seemed promising, and edited my network.http.max-connections value from 900 to 48, as the chosen answer suggested. I figured if it didn't work, I could always just change it back.

How wrong I was.

Not only did it not work, it prevented me from doing anything. Now when I open Firefox, nothing loads. I can see the toolbar, search bar, and my bookmarks, but the actual screen is blank. No widgets with my frequently visited sites and some news stories, no homepage, just blankness. When I enter a url or do a random search or even try to open about:config, nothing happens. It doesn't even show a loading icon.

I attempted to refresh Firefox, but it got stuck in the loading stage, which I attributed to my already breaking it somehow. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But no dice. It's still entirely unresponsive.

Any help would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm largely computer illiterate!

I will post an image to show what is happening when I use the paste in the toolbar search item. I did a retore to defaults and it fixed the issue until the next day after a reboot of the pc and it is back. Anybody else see this behavior and know how to fix it? Thanks, Dave

p.s. I wrote up a larger version of this and tried to share data which didn't work automatically and wiped out my story. :(

Just recently started using Firefox and Duckduckgo. Suddenly any attempt to use my credit card to charge anything I cannot click on the icon, or enter CC info. Very strange. Same is true for Shopify although Shopify does send me a verification code. Only thing that works is PayPal. Annoying.

No bookmark sync app. Actually there is. But because of the following problem. It's like nothing.

1 Firefox login bookmarks. Unable to load old bookmarks Or it can't be overwritten and you can't pick and choose to sync. I can't give the bookmark a name. For example, save the name win10 on 07/08/22. List. If a bookmark is broken, it cannot be fixed. Or, it may not be synchronized with Linux and Windows. then My bookmarks are blank. state of nothing This is the problem with Firefox default login bookmarks.

2 I Clear Browsing Data https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/clear-browsing-data/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=featured I use this bookmark. then.

3 Bookmarks created by individuals https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/syncmarx/?src=search syncmarx

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fvd-synchronizer/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search EverSync Bookmarks This bookmark login will be canceled and all data will be lost. So I tried contacting the developer. No answers.

These were the problems I was facing right now.

I'm saving bookmarks manually so it's very dangerous and inconvenient. There are many cases where I forgot to save by my mistake.

thank you. I hope it improves.

Ah, Clear Browsing Data, other additional functions work normally even if you use this.


This story has nothing to do with Firefox. Because it is a problem caused by an add-on created by an individual I am aware of it too. But there is no place for me to complain.

I cannot make calls via Firefox on Facebook Messenger. In the second window that normally loads tells me that something went wrong. (in Dutch tells me "Er is iets fout gegaan" This happens on both my computers, Windows and Linux. Even when I start Firefox in troubleshoot mode it is still not working. However works absolute perfectly in Google Chrome. The problem started today by my knowledge for no apparent reason. I tested the camera in Firefox, works. I tested the microphone in Firefox, works, no problem. Also I granted Facebook permission to use the microphone and camera.

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

I imported my bookmarks from an HTML file but they are not showing even after I close and restart the browser. Where are my bookmarks? And furthermore, your instructions for importing them in the first place did not work for me because the sequence and pictures did not match what I saw in my browser. I played around with it until I found the import part. And yet, no bookmarks.

At "https://www.delta.com/login/loginPage?staticurl=" (login to delta.com) there's a user name field. When I click on it Firefox suggests the username. I don't want the username exposed this way because I use the 1Password password manager to fill in usernames.

In Settings "Logins and Passwords" it says "1Password – Password Manager controls this setting". "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is not checked, and "Autofil logins and passwords" is checked but the option is pale blue instead of bright blue and cannot be changed.

How can I stop FF from exposing my username?

Hi, ever since cross-site cookie protection came in, all tumblr blogs I go to (as in when I type their url into the address bar, not when I visit them from my tumblr dash) sometimes break, treating me as if I'm logged out, except when I click to log in it takes me straight to the dashboard. Refreshing can sometimes fix it, making it that most dreaded of troubleshooting pains, an intermittent problem. Should be easier than most though, as this happens roughly about three times out of four, although sometimes I can have a bad run and refresh twenty times or more without being able to actually interact with anything as if I were logged in. And the occasional blog that the owner took advantage of advanced features to have a non-[user name].tumblr.com site, like for example this one simply refuse to see me as logged in at all. I PRESUME this is because the existing tumblr.com exceptions only cover some of the servers tumblr uses to authenticate logins, or something, but even when a blog is not letting me interact with stuff Firefox still says it detects 'no trackers known to Firefox'.

I see that there was a new version loaded yesterday so don't know if this relates. Starting today, when I open Firefox, it opens in a small screen in the upper left corner. I want it to open in full screen. I have to click twice to get the full screen. I do not mean the screen that F11 gives since I still want my tabs at the bottom. I have Windows 10 and Firefox 103.0.2.

I realize that this is an annoyance that has a workaround. I just want what I had yesterday. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have Firefox 103.0.2 and have enabled the use of style sheets in about:config. I have a CSS style sheet userChrome.css that is giving me color at the top heading and in the tabs, except for the active tab (is white)

I'll list the CSS and see if you can give me some guidance in what i need to do to put some roundness in the top corners of the tabs. the UserChrome.css file .titlebar-color{ color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor; } .tab-background{ border-radius: 5px 5px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem{ padding-block: 2px !important; min-height: 0px !important; }

root{

--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 2px !important; }

The whole top is solid color (same as Windows color, which is ok by me. However, it would also be nice if there were a dividing line or separation between the menu on top and the "tabs" below. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!! Vern

As of 16 August Firefox Development Edition continually crashes.

Firefox standard is fine.

Tried the following 1. Shutdown and restart 2. Refresh 3. Uninstall, download and reinstall (4 times) 4. Chkdsk /r with restart then uninstall and reinstall 5. Open in troubleshoot mode 6. Tried incognito window 7. Tried disabling AV (Eset)

No change other than when the crash happens. Initially it would require opening a few tabs and browsing - now it crashes on startup.

Given that no other applications are behaving adversely, that Firefox standard works, that this was working find until 12 hours ago - my suspicion is it is something to do with the Developer edition.

Any other suggestions welcome.
