Hello,

I've been experiencing a great deal of crashes recently, mostly just with individual tabs, but occasionally the Firefox window itself goes down as well. I've tried reinstalling and refreshing Firefox, and I've been doing checks to see if my RAM or other hardware are faulty with no results so far.

I've mostly experienced the issue when playing videos on YouTube, but I've had crashes just casually browsing other sites as well.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance.

Sometimes a box pops up on the screen that asks if I want to block or allow something. Sometimes I have no interest in doing either, and just want the damned dialog out of my face. The page seems to work otherwise, but the stupid browser keeps the dialog over top of things, and clicking outside of it, and hitting Esc, don't make it go away. I think those actions used to work, and I think there, sensibly, used to be a dismiss option, but that seems to be absent now. There's no sense to trying to force me to make a decision I don't want to make, and doesn't even need to be made, and I want this thing to cut it out.

Hi, not sure the best place to ask, but it's been an ongoing issue since 2022. I kind of believe a shift in Intel has caused some of these issues, but probably not important (and I've already contacted them and did not get anywhere) at the moment.

Essentially, having Firefox running crashes the Intel UHD Graphics system, typically it is the UHD 620, but I believe I have some systems with a UHD 630. On Windows, I get a blank screen for 1.5 seconds, on macOS it crashes the entire Mac. I...I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact I'm the only one with the issue and has occurred on multiple computers over a period of 18 months. The systems in question include the following:

Dell Optiplex 5040 MT - Fixed by putting a GTX 1650 in its 16x slot. Dell Optiplex 5060 MFF Dell Latitude 7290 Dell Latitude 7490 MSI GF63 (9th generation revision) MacBook Air 2020 w/ Intel i3 under macOS.

The thing is, with the exception of the MacBook, PCs don't report any issues apart from a "Hardware Failure" within the Reliability Monitor and the aforementioned screen shutoff. With World of Warcraft I'm able to reproduce the issue consistently under both DX11 and DX9, but Firefox not so much. I do see it occurring only on YouTube videos on the MacBook and is more common to occur on PC, but I have also had it happen on normal browsing.

I can turn off hardware acceleration and have done so, but I do wonder how much of an impact it will make on power efficiency on say, battery power. Would be something that should be fixed and I would like to put effort into getting it resolved, but I have no idea where to start. All drivers are up to date, Intel Boost is disabled (and I wonder if having it set as so causes this, though the MSI has no such BIOS setting) and it only occurs on Windows PCs with Windows 11.

Thanks for reading.

Hello! I updated FLOORP on the 5th May, FLOORP crashed and then Brave, Firefox, Waterfox, LibreWolf and Vivaldi started crashing. I had Brave and Vivaldi open when I launched FLOORP and FLOORP asked consent to update itself and after updating, it did not open in “previous session” and I could not open “previous session” through History. When I launched “Settings” from menu, “previous session” opened! I had pinned “Settings” earlier.

Now the bizarre happens; suddenly LibreWolf launches by itself also without “previous session” and open tabs in Brave and Vivaldi disappear to single New Tab. After some tinkering, I was able to restore “previous session” in LibreWolf, Brave and Vivaldi.

Now I close all browsers and open Firefox, no “previous session” and some random windows in its history, opening these random windows also opened “previous session”! 🙄But then Waterfox launches also without “previous session”, here clicking on OneTab extension recovered “previous session”.

Cutting short; I uninstalled, Waterfox, LibreWolf and FLOORP, this did not help, I ran System Restore twice to two different points and it has not resolved the issue.

Thankful for any help!

So yesterday I downloaded a bunch of files to mod a game. This warning appeared and since then it's been popping up every time I start the browser. I have cleared all cookies related to the relevant sites. I have removed the warning about unwanted and uncommon software. I would rather not clear all my cookies and data to resolve this, so looking for other suggestions first. I don't mind digging through files or code to make it happen.

Every time I start up firefox, it takes about a full minute to load. It shows an outline of the UI, but does not become usable for a while, windows also puts up a "firefox is not responding" window when the window is interacted with. After loading, opening a new window is unaffected, and page loading is snappy. just the initial launch is the issue. This remains true even after a clean uninstall + reinstall. Appdata folder was removed as well, and did not affect the issue. I do not have any antivirus software other than windows defender, so that should not be an issue. My hardware is also not likely to be at fault, as it is sufficiently up to date (upgraded within last year, not sharing specs here). Chrome starts up in less than a second for reference. Once again, a fresh install with a new profile has the same symptoms. Have tried every available guide to no effect.

I just did the most recent Windows 10 updates:

KB5037768, KB5038350, KB5001716

My version is 22H2 for x64 and .Net 6.0.30

Upon finishing the update and rebooting, Firefox gave me the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR on all websites. Not other browser was having an issue. I've tried all the troubleshooting steps I can find. Is there an error fix based on what I am describing that I can now try?

Thanks!

When on the Princess Cruise web site looking at various cruise options, the Firefox browser will not let me open the list of excursions for the ports on the cruise that we were looking to book, but I can see them when using Google Chrome.

I experienced problems with Firefox on different Windows 10 clients. The problems are only with Firefox, other browser like Chrome or Edge have no issues. The occasional issues are that Firefox loads the websites either very slow (~ 30 to 60 seconds) or sometimes not at all. At the same time, other browsers like Chrome or Edge load the same websites fast and reliably.

All affected clients have a fully patched Windows 10 with the latest build, up-to-date Firefox versions, recent processors and plenty of RAM and I periodically clean cookies/website-data/cache/history.

What could be the problem and the solution?

I always keep two Youtube tabs open at all times on my computer. After a while of running, however, the site starts to get increasingly laggy, in a way that simply reloading the tab does not fix. (I am aware that this is likely a result of one of the extensions I have installed that affects Youtube's behavior, specifically SponsorBlock and Return Youtube Dislike, but I am not willing to uninstall these.) I also know of a "force reload" - pressing ctrl + shift + R instead of just ctrl + R in order to clear the cache or something.

However, whenever Youtube starts getting really slow, I instead like to do something I call "crashing the tab" - I open my system monitor, look for the current most CPU-intensive "Isolated Web Co" process, and end it. This pops up an error message in Firefox that says "Gah - your tab just crashed!" and offering me the option to restore it. After restoring it from this window, the performance is back to normal.

My question is, is this beneficial, or is it functionally identical to a normal force-reload? Is the improvement I see between this method and force-reloading the page just placebo? And if not, is there a simpler way to do it without opening a second program?
