Hi Running FF 99.0.1 on MacOS Big Sur (11.6.4) and my Lulu outbound network monitoring app (https://objective-see.com/products/lulu.html) is flagging an attempt by the FF MacOS plugin container trying to access a high risk site (93/100) according to https://www.ipqualityscore.com/free-ip-lookup-proxy-vpn-test/lookup/104.16.248.249.

=======The lulu popup notification shows: Message : plugin-container.app is trying to connect to 104.16.248.249 Process ID: 44441 Process args: -parentBuildID 20220411174855 -prefsLen 6210 -prefMapSize 255244 -sbStartup -sbAppPath /Applications/Firefox.app -appDir /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/browser -profile /Users/xxxxx/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/dps0ori7.default-release 44428 gecko-crash-server-pipe.44428 org.mozilla.machname.1552309677 socket Process Path: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container.app

IP address: 104.16.248.249 port & protocol: 443 (TCP) reverse DNS name: unknown

==

https://www.abuseipdb.com/whois/104.16.248.249 shows a hostname of aofeisheng.com.

Cannot really tell if this is a false positive or something I should block permanently. Not sure why my plugin container is reaching out when the browser was just updated.

Thanks

I recently installed AdBlocker, but then a site I visit daily closes after it loads.

I uninstalled AdBlocker and the site still closes after it loads.

I assume the problem was from AdBlocker, but not really sure why this happens.

French expat in Asia I noticed that since the launch of this free website, Firefox 93.0 running with macOS Big Sur 11.6 is unable to connect properly with the French TV5MONDEplus website. Access to the site is entirely possible but the connection seems to stop as soon as you try to view the programs offered… This problem doesn't arise by using Chrome.

  • Mac OS 11.6

  • GPU Radeon Pro 570X 4 GB
  • Firefox version 93

[report] [#1] [#2] [#3] [#4] [#5]

Firefox has been crashing constantly since Oct 6. Out of nowhere. Initially it would happen occasionally, but since Oct it's like seconds after I open it. Every time I have to force quit the application (colour wheel). Even though I am starting with a "refreshed" version (holding ALT + clicking on the icon and selecting refresh) it still happens.

Any help or tips are very much appreciated, FF is my default browser and because of this I have to shift my workflow to Chrome, which I am not fan.

Tabs I usually have open:

  • Gmail (pinned)
  • Whatsapp (pinned)
  • Google Keep (pinned)
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Spreadsheets
  • Reddit
  • Kotaku (sometimes)
  • The Verge (sometimes)

What I already did:

  • Update it (I had initially the previous version)
  • Open it holding alt → Refresh Firefox
  • Restarting the OS
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox
  • Disabled hardware acceleration
