Two days ago firefox stopped working with most of my offices local intranet sites. It either doesnt load at all or loads so slowly its not practical to use. I have refreshed multiple times and that works for about an hour before it goes back to the initial slow behavior. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no change. I have uninstalled all plugins and addons with the same result. I really do not wish to stop using firefox after so long but I am at the end of my knowledge on how to rectify this . Any suggestions are helpful.

Yesterday I was using the firefox browser normally and suddenly it stopped working. Now it does not load any websites (see picture). Also, to access the preferences tab if I do it by clicking on the menu, sometimes it opens up just fine but others it does not react. Same if I type in about:preferences.

I have tried the following:

- Refreshing firefox - Using firefox in private mode - Deleting all extensions - Using default system theme - Selecting no proxy in the network settings - Reinstalling firefox - Clearing recent history - Setting network.dns.disableIPv6 and network.dns.disablePrefetch to True

Nothing is working... I have looked everywhere for a solution, please help!!

When I'm using my Firefox for too long or few couple of minutes its suddenly fronzen and stops response. So I need to restart it, killing the process using top,htop or kill commands. It has been weeks that this problem started. I waited for updates and tried reinstall it, but no futher SO updates and reinstall solved the problem, if the new Firefox release updates could put a end to this problem.

I have here some ID number of my bug report that I send to Mozilla, if someone could help understand if its a package/driver or miss configuration I would like to know.

bp-8764ac27-aa1c-4db5-831c-ae2460211031 bp-87b0281c-aae3-418e-8f45-828f20211031 bp-d01fcb65-6123-499a-a3d8-4c7950211031 bp-83d56e36-0d58-4456-a7e5-677370211031 bp-a385f497-2271-4120-bdbb-474440211031 bp-f320a744-5606-4743-87ab-763620211031 bp-4a2d704e-cf83-4eb5-8df0-c10b70211031

When press the upper right button 'x' to close, it says that my Firefox isn't respond due to: 'Firefox: Exiting due to channel error'

I don't know how to fix it or find better logs messages to discover what is happens on the Firefox. I have SO with Windows 10 and I don't have this problem at all.

Each and every time I try to reply to an email received in my Optimum Online account, when sending there is a pop-up (drop down) saying "Webtop error" and nothing else. There is no record of this error in the Mozilla database. I have found little if anything elsewhere. Email can only be replied to by using a different browser, such as Opera. Windows 10 x64. All latest software updates installed.

Upon further search, I find that "webtop error" may be related to Unified Compliance Framework, which sounds Draconian. Further research is proceeding.

When typing it comes behind al lot. It happens in input fieds, when typing in the adress bar. I also get lag when scrolling. I have tried all the thinks i can find. I have used troubleshooting mode, disables the addons i use (its just dark reader and uBlock orign). I also dont see a high CPU usage or RAM usage. I have disabled and enabled hardware acceleration, smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. Next to that i have also reinstall firefox. Today i also tried to make an new profile. Still got the same problem. It has not crashed yet so i couldn't find crash logs or something the kind. I have dual boot and on windows and don't have this problem there.

If you need some system information or other information, ill provide.

Hi, this is driving me up the wall and I'm about to change over to chrome if it can't be fixed. For over a week now, firefox has been erroring on a heap of websites (I got 3 page and loading errors just trying to log into this site, so it's not an unsecure webpage problem.) If you refresh the page 1-3 times it'll usually go through. Once it's gone through, it'll usually allow you to use that site for at least a while before starting to error again.

I've disabled all addons except my adblocker, norton safe search and privacy badger add ons (all of which I've had for ages with no problems). Computer has been scanned as virus free. No problems with other browsers. Any ideas please?

Typical example message when trying to open a page.

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to diaryofanottb.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Hi experts,

I installed the latest firefox 91.2.0esr (64-bit) yesterday on OS centos 7.9, and use the Mojave-light theme. I change the close, maximize, minimize to the left top corner of each window and change such order under dconf-editor. Remember, my order is: close, maximize, minimize, (red, green, yellow), NOT close, minimize, maximize,(red, yellow, green).

Actual results:

The actual result is that: only firefox doesn't take effect. Only firefox window has the WRONG order: close, minimize, maximize. (red, yellow, green)

Expected results:

It should be: close, maximize, minimize (red, green, and yellow)

or:

how to change the order of close, maximize, minimize in the userChrome.css?

PS1: changing to the default theme, or using safe-mode doesn't work.

Hi guys! Stripe.com crashes FF. The site only displays about halfway down its homepage, then crashes FF. I've cleared cookies, all history, removed and reloaded FF, turned off tracking protection for Stripe at the address bar, lowered tracking settings to standard in FF, turned off hardware acceleration, and contacted Stripe directly. But they can't help with browser specific issues accept to offer standard solutions, which I already tried. Also, Stripe works fine in Chrome.

I'm using 1password extension, and for plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. I deactivated both those plugins but no use. Ideas? Thanks! Ken
