Whenever I write in my text box, the suggestions from bookmarks, etc. just go blank. The same happens when I hit "About Firefox" under help. To clarify, this is in the drop down on the search bar and the pop up for About Firefox. Have not seen it elsewhere yet. Cleared everything, even did a refresh of Firefox.

Recently I emptied my Browser Cache in Firefox 60.0.2 (Quantum, 64Bit). When I tried to sign in to gmail / googlemail, Firefox suddenly did the following:

- Redirected me to a different random site or page I visited before. (for example: gmail SignIn ---> some tumblr webpage) - When only one Tab was opened, it simply closed the tab (and itself). (This would classify as a crash?)

I tried closing and restarting Firefox with the same results. Emptying the cache again did not bring any improvement.

Every time I try to open a new tab, it's just a blank page with nothing in the URL bar. I want it to display about:home. I'm not sure where to start looking to see what's causing this weird override, especially since I can't find any setting for what New Tabs open in the main Options page, but I do know that whatever the setting is, it got carried over when I synced my Firefox account.

What should I try troubleshooting first? Thanks.

CryptoTab extension is blocked and I don't know by what. I tried disabling all other extensions with no result. Even uninstalled 360 Antivirus. Same result. The most annoying is always switching to the tab which can be seen in screenshot. CryptoTab FAQ says this about "What can I do if mining is blocked?": "Your security system (antivirus, adblocker and etc. ) probably blocked mining script money.js. You need to add CryptoTab or money.js to whitelist in your security system. Find «exceptions» or «whitelist» item in the menu of your security system and add money.js and Cryptotab.net to it. You can search more information exactly about your antivirus specifics in internet. " BTW, it's working in Google Chrome, which I really don't like using. I want my FFback

Whenever I try to change the "Opens with: " option for image files to mozilla firefox (by selecting browse, navigating to the mozilla firefox folder, and clicking "firefox.exe" ) it acts as if I didn't select anything at all, preventing me from choosing it. I used to be able to do it with regular firefox (not quantum), but now I can't.

When I used to select a bookmark to retrieve from the 'Show all bookmarks' list and then return to this list after finishing with the bookmark it would automatically highlight the name of the bookmark on the list that I just finished with. Now when I do the same thing the name of the top bookmark on the 'Show all bookmarks' list is highlighted instead. I don't know why this procedure changed but it makes it a lot more inconvenient when working with numerous sequential bookmarks.

Hi, since version 60.0.2 my Firefox stop load YouTube properly, I can use it on Chrome or Safari, the block just happen on FireFox. I try to disable the plugins and also to start in safe mode, but nothings works.

The problem appears to be the https://s.ytimg.com/yts/jsbin/* JS resources that YouTube web page are calling, if I try to access any of them FireFox tell me that the site is insecure, but Chrome and Safari don't have any trouble.

Any ideas? It's very tedious to have to change to another browser just to see YouTube.

Thanks in advance.

Every time I restart Firefox browser, It's like Firefox goes back to a "saved" state I can't break.

If I re-arrange bookmarks, they will revert back to the "saved state".

Also I have Gmail pinned, and it always starts up with the same mail open, that I've delete numerous times.

I've just freshly installed my PC on a new HDD (also had issue on "old" HDD), and I'm experiencing the issue in both cases.

I'm using Firefox Sync and have version 60.0.2 64 bit version of Firefox on a fully updated Windows 10.

I've also tried froce syncing Firefox Sync after I've made the changes I want, but with same result.

Can anyone direct me to what could be wrong?

FF60.0.2 64 bit but not 60.0.1 on Win7 Lattitude E5250 128G SSD with many windows open some with few tabs some with very many tabs is now paging so furiously (80+MB/S) that typing in Yahoo mail is shown 5 to 10 seconds behind keystrokes. I did the FF update yesterday, have been fighting this ever since, have closed very many tabs some windows and have combined tabs of windows with few tabs. Nothing helps. Typing and reflection is faster here (IE) unless I switch window then return, but that reflects lack of javascript character analysis I think; however, scrolling is very slow on this screen.

Can I roll back to 60.0.1? If so, how do I get to 60.0.1 64-bit exe?

Large PAC file doesn't seem to work properly

I have three PAC files.

First, https://vindicar.name/proxy.pac (under 1KB)

Second, https://vindicar.name/proxy2.pac (1.9MB)

Third, https://vindicar.name/proxy3.pac (519KB)

They are almost identical in structure, performing a search through a list of IPs to determine is a proxy needs to be used. The only difference is that first has a tiny list of ips. the second has actual list of IPs, and the third has a significantly reduced list. The largest one was generated by a script, so I don't expect any sneaky syntax errors in there.

Smaller PAC files work just fine, directing requests through a private proxy. I tested it by adding whatismyipaddress.com to blacklisted domains and comparing its output to another "get my ip" site. The largest PAC file seems to have no effect whatsoever, with Firefox falling back to direct connection.

Is there any size and/or execution time restriction on PAC files?

Appendix 1: General structure of PAC files above:

 function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
   var ipblacklist = [
   // List of IPs goes here, in decimal notation:
   // "127.0.0.1",
   // "192.168.0.1",
   // and so on
   ];
   var domainblacklist = [
   'privoxy.org',
   'whatismyipaddress.com',
   ];
 
   function endsWith(str, suffix) {
     return str.indexOf(suffix, str.length - suffix.length) !== -1;
   }
   var blocked = false;
   for (var i=0; !blocked && (i<domainblacklist.length); i++)
     blocked = blocked || ((host == domainblacklist[i]) || endsWith(host, '.'+domainblacklist[i]));
   if (blocked || (ipblacklist.indexOf(dnsResolve(host)) != -1))
     // That proxy is accessible via my VPN, you will have to substitute your own for testing
     return "PROXY 10.42.0.1:8118; SOCKS5 10.42.0.1:8118";
   else
     return "DIRECT";

I am trying to troubleshoot installing add on problems on my computer, I have tried many of the prescribed things and I had it working for a little while, after messing with Firefox for days... I never had problems like this before the most recent couple of updates for Firefox. So I can only assume it has to do with something that randomly occurs in the program. This time is a little different than the last time, and I have not made changes to my Firefox, so I do not understand... I am a firm believer in if its not broken don't fix it. So I copied the direct link to the Firefox add on, pasted into the navigation bar, it was a Mozilla website. "https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/" and I get a "Connection not secure" fault. Soooo I can only assume that if I am attempting to install an add on using the add on manager, in the back ground it cant install it because its preventing its own access to its own website...Really???

I am on a portable version (60.0.2) of Firefox on a Windows 10 64 desktop. Although this worked fine for a long time, now every time I go to Firefox have to log on again, including the two-step security code thing. Then it asks if I want it to "save" the browser so I don't have to do this again, but it never works. I am not sure if this started after the recent Windows update or the Firefox update, but it is annoying to the extent that I may drop the two-step security process.
