From last night, when I open Firefox, a blank white screen keeps appearing. Other browsers work fine but whenever I open Firefox this happens. I'm currently running Firefox on safe mode. Any solution other than uninstalling Firefox? The screen is fully white, no close button, nothing. Just plain white.

Considering you update nearly every day, the dumbest thing you've done is change the "view photo" in the right mouse button to "open photo in a new tab". Why did you do this dumb thing. We all look at photos, and you made it inconvenient. Dumb Firefox code writers....

Firefox 90b8 (64 bit). Note: I had previously been using 32-bit and it would crash once or more per day WITH crash files, many of which were (I think) submitted to you. My PC may be a factor: It's a "new old stock" (vintage 2016 or so) Pipo X9S. This model has 4 GB RAM and a 64 GB EMMC "disk." All disk operations are pathetically slow and I suspect this a factor in the poor performance.

I'd been hoping to see if the 64-bit build works better or could provide crash files. Clearly there's still something broken, but why no crash message/file?

The PC itself has been checked as well as I can. Latest win10 with all updates. Chkdsk /F finds no errors. I even downloaded and ran MEMTEST86 -- no problems there.

Firefox's "Use" is typically streaming music (SoundCloud) but many crashes happen when also doing normal web browsing in a 2nd tab.

Can someone help me to set up crash messages and reporting? Thank you.

I'm using Firefox developer edition 90.0b12

As seen in the attached picture, the bookmark menu lines are too narrow.

If I recall correctly, a couple years ago I customized it, but now I can't find any userChrome.css file anywhere.

How can I find why is it being displayed like that? or how can I restore its default display?

Thanks a lot

Rendering Glitches in Firefox/Firefox Developer Edition

  1. The First Image is of the URL bar. If you look closely, some of the parts are chipped.
  2. The Second Image is of a Button. It's chipped in all sides.
  3. The Third Image is a string of dots and hyphens that I've selected with my cursor. It's weirdly torn in the middle.

The Issue is on both Firefox Developer Edition and the normal Firefox. Both are the latest versions. Both are installed on my OS.

I'm on Parrot OS 4.11. I've tried changing the window compositor which is Metacity(Marco) but that doesn't solve the issue. Kernel is 5.10.0-6parrot1-amd64. I'm running on integrated graphics. No third-party graphics driver.

I have Ubuntu installed too and the problem isn't there in Ubuntu. So It's in Parrot. I heavily use Firefox for Web Surfing and Development.

All of them are fresh installs from the official website.

I installed Firefox Multi-Account Containers and found it working OK, on most pages. On some however it prevents me from logging in, for example on https://login.blau.de (German mobile phone provider) I end up consistently in an error message that "for technical reasons this website is not available". I don't get this error when I login with a browser WITHOUT Firefox Multi-Account Containers enabled. Why do I run into an error when logging in on some sites, but not on all? How can I disable MAC for specific websites?

OK, been going round and round with this one. Looking for ideas here.

For whatever reason I am unable to post a link in posts of a favorite online forum I frequent. I click the little add url icon and a window comes up asking for the link. I enter it and click OK, the window disappears but nothing appears in the post. Adding text or pictures, modifying a post, etc, no problem. Every other feature on the forum works for me.

Forum Admin thinks it has something to do with Java. However I AM able to post links in other forums. I've also refreshed my Firefox with no improvements.

I can go with Explorer (not Edge) and have no trouble posting a link which suggests it has nothing to do with any other aspect of my machine.

OS is Win 10 current version. Firefox is also current version.

Hi, some shortcuts are so generally known and used everywhere and the fact that Firefox intercepts them changing their behavior may be confusing. Let's take Control B for example: it is generally used (e.g. by every online editor or composer, like Gmail ) to set a bold font at the selected text. In Firefox this triggers instead opening bookmarks list, which is highly confusing. Shouldn't this shortcut be disabled by default? Or at least create an extremely evident (e.g. in the welcome page after install) way to disable it. Thank you

Some have reported that the 90.0 update has messed with the Menu Bar text colour. In the "Dark" theme, the tabs are black, the Menu Bar is black and the Menu Bar text is black. I can confirm this on Linux Mint 20.1 and Win 10 21H1. I Also confirmed it to be working correctly on ver 89 for both Mint and Win. I also confirmed that the update for ver 89 turned on automatic updates for Firefox (Linux and Win) without notifiying me that it was changing my settings and ver 90 appears to no longer allow user control of updates.

Also, About Mozilla Firefox, Ver 90.0 (64-bit), says it's for Linux Mint 1.0 Is it possible that this is the reason the Menu Bar is messed-up in the Dark Theme?

An audio ad for Netflix plays numerous times a day. It only happens when I'm using Firefox browser. It's a computerized voice like "Cortana". It's talks over other apps like You Tube and Napster which is very irritating, especially since I'm already a member of Netflix. I'm really sick of hearing it and consider it an invasion of my privacy. I contacted Netflix helpline and they said they knew nothing about it even though it's an ad for their services. Also, nothing shows on my Task Manager when it's playing to help determine it's source. Somebody..........PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hello,

I use firefox on the server at work. A lot of bookmarks are there for sites I have to go to for work. When Firefox updated, I can no longer open Firefox. I get an error message saying that I can't open the older version because it can corrupt some bookmarks and instead it says to make a new profile, but the other one has all of my data. I didn't sign in with my personal Firefox, so I have no idea how to get the bookmarks back. Any help is appreciated.
