As the title implies, I am unable to open any local files on Firefox. The tab just keeps loading forever and using up all available memory until it crashes the tab. (the browser still remains operational, since the crashing process is a child process of the main browser)

I took a look at the process in GDB and it looks like it's hanging in `read () at /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0`, called from libxul.so. (possibly a spinlock, since it also grinds one of my cpu cores down) I've checked and this problem is not related to my profile, settings, or extensions.

I'm at a complete loss for what to do now to fix this, since I don't have the time or disk space to build a full debug build of Firefox and figure out what's going on.

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

Can someone provide a solution for autofill (both addresses and passwords) not working. And no, don't say "did you check or uncheck so and so - I've been writing CNC software interfaces for years and have little idea about setting up a system. Getting fed up with having to repeatedly log on and add the address over and over (I get the prompts to save). The save address "feature" RARELY works. Firefox "used" to be able to perform this feature - now it is becoming a buggy FAIL. I'm thinking it may be time to just give up, uninstall it, and move on to Chrome...

Hello, I recently upgraded Firefox to the latest 82.0 (64-bits) version. I am quite sure that with that version a new problem appeared by which the Firefox windows have no border except the window title bar, and cannot be grabbed for resizing. I believe it has to do with Firefox because other windows doe not have this problem, and the firefox window has the menu "File|Edit|etc." inside the window title bar. The versions are: - Firefox see above - Compiz version : 1:0.9.12.3 - Ubuntu 16.04LTS - gtk2-engines-murrine : 0.98.2-0

Incidentally, when starting firefox on the cli, I receive the error messages copied below. Thanks for the great work, firefox must continue and grow. Regards, xgiannak

I don't understand why firefox makes it so difficult to stop websites from autoplaying videos. Case in point: fox news and fox business news web sites. They have that stupid pop up when you scroll down the page, so if the main video is blocked the popup ignores it and starts playing. The preferences->autoplay doesn't allow you to enter a site to block and clicking on the lock on the url bar doesn't work because the permissions line isn't clickable, so we are left to resort to about:config which also fails to block these sites. This is very frustrating and if anything will drive me to another browser its stuff like this.
