Hello everyone!!

I've been experiencing a rather "unusual" issue: My Firefox up until version 116.0b8 worked perfectly fine; however, after any updates to versions beyond that, it stopped working.

I've tried the final versions and the betas, but nothing works. I attempted reinstallation and everything else, but I couldn't solve the mystery and remain stuck on version 116.0 beta 8.

What's happening? Every time I try to load a page on any version above 116.0, it either doesn't open or keeps loading in a loop. Yet, if I use another browser or revert to version 116, everything works correctly. This issue does not occurs in others machines.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

Thanks in advance for your help.

This isn't strictly related to Hulu but using it as an example: Hulu has some bug right now where it will occasionally suddenly use a lot of CPU power and completely lock up Firefox, and to some degree my whole system. If I manage to "close" the tab, it *appears* to close, but it's very clear that whatever Hulu is doing is still going on in the background. This time I was at least able to open the task manager and kill Firefox – which immediately alleviated the problem, and upon reopening Firefox, the Hulu tab was still there (indicating it never closed).

I don't know if this is possible, especially given I don't know what's causing the bug with Hulu, but it would be nice if Firefox was better able to handle a tab getting out of control like that.

I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

Everytime I close Firefox, it logs me out of all of my accounts (gmail, amazon, sites I use for work etc.) I have tried refreshing Mozilla to default settings, uninstalling and reinstalling it, changing preferences under History but nothing is working. It is frustrating as I have to go through the security checks each time I log back into my accounts which is using a lot of time. I am the only one who uses my laptop and it's password protected, so I prefer to stay logged in to frequently used sites. It's been happening for over a couple of months now and I don't know what else to try and I've gone through so many help pages and advice pages already. I may have to switch to another browser if this keeps happening, which I am reluctant to do. How can I stop Firefox from logging me out all the time?

Hi

I have three computers that all have Outlook set as default handler for mailto: links. They all worked on v127 and as each one updates to v128 over the last days they stopped passing mail to links to outlook. A new tab opens with the link in the address bar as before, but Outlook is never called to process the link.

no other settings have changed.

I have a client that uses this link for a web app all the time and now cannot.

All on Windows 10. thank you.

Good Morning. With the new version 128 of Firefox we have a problem using the web-based interfaces of some devices. After analyzing the problem we found that the problem is due to the function "getHTML" introduced with Firefox version 128. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Element/getHTML#browser_compatibility I have the same problem with other browsers.

There are some settings, for example in the special menu "about:config", to disable the newly introduced "getHTML"?

Unfortunately we cannot update the firmware of these devices and we would like to find a way to prevent Firefox from exposing the getHTML function in a similar way to versions before 128 Thanks in advance for the support.
