Hi all,

I've been having this issue for a few days now, I've tried to uninstall, re-scan, reboot my pc and reinstall Firefox but they still PERSIST!! Every time I open firefox for the first time after turning on my pc, Avast pops up with the malware warnings. I've used Avast, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner but nothing seems to be working. I've disabled and uninstalled the ad-ons as well.

I'm not sure how else to remove the malwares because it seems to be running from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

Please help.

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

'bold text'bold text '''''''I routinely keep 2 browsers open on my desktop; Chrome and Firefox. I use them for different things but my default browser is Firefox and I use Firefox for Microsoft Outlook 365 on the web.

For quite some time now, I have been having HUGE problems with delays in Firefox using Outlook when typing. First, I thought it was the bluetooth in either my mouse or my keyboard, but after trying many different solutions, including using a "wired" mouse, I discovered it is not since this does not happen with Chrome.

Is there a solution for this? My computer expert tells me that Microsoft only tests and optimizes their websites for browsers using the Blink rendering engine, which includes Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, and Opera. Firefox uses a different engine. '

If this is true, then sadly I will need to change my default browser to Chrome which makes me sad since I believe Firefox is a better and more secure browser.''''

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K .

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Hi,

I have decided to ditch Google as much as possible, and come back to Firefox. I always had a tinge of guilt for going over to Google, but that's another story.

The page load times for Chrome are averaging about 1 second. for Firefox they are between 10 and 40 seconds.

OOB does Firefox need any setting changes to make it load pages faster ? I've compared page loads on pages I havent visited before, so no browser cache settings should affect loading times.

Here is some data to back this up.

System : OS Windows 10 Pro - Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043 All latest updates as of 20 April 2021

HW AMD Ryzen 9 3900x CPU X570 Aorus Motherboard 64GB DDR4 3200MHz 3090 Nvidia RTX GPU All PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs

Firefox : 88.0 (64-bit) - About Box says "Up to Date" Chrome : Version 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (64-bit) - latest on stable channel

3 x Arbitrary URLs to load a. https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/alberta-doctors-find-2nd-case-of-blood-clot-linked-to-astrazeneca-vaccine-in-canada-1.5391531 b. https://www.bbc.com/ c. https://www.usa.gov/

Clear Cache before going to web site Choose web sites I had not visited before on this computer

Load times for Chrome in MILLI seconds a 1178(ms) b 1321(ms) c 914(ms)

Same pages loaded in Firefox in SECONDS a 40.65 seconds b 10.38 seconds c 8.33 seconds

Ping and Internet Connection settings Ping 2ms Download 854.16 Mbps Upload 821.35 Mbps

Both browsers have no plugins loaded (except the page time load plugin).

Even if the plugin is telling me the wrong times, I can tell that the times are roughly correct by watching the page load, ie Chrome takes about a second to load most pages, Firefox is taking about 10-40 seconds.

I presume I must have some kind of setting that's wrong somewhere, but this is OOB, so are other people experiencing this kind of latency ?

Thanks

Following other support threads, I managed to turn off the incredibly annoying yellow bar warning of "a script slowing down the browser". But Firefox then defaulted to displaying those messages as they occur in separate error message dialog boxes.

Again, following other threads, I have managed to make a decent amount of them not display by increasing the time Firefox waits before popping up the error message. I have also determined (from looking at the script name that displays in the error box) that the remaining scripts originate at whatever site I am browsing at the time, so at least my very few add-ons are not to blame.  :)

I probably can live with those remaining few, except that if a script fails and I happen to be in another tab when that happens, Firefox annoyingly switches focus to that tab. It becomes even more of a nuisance if I was typing in the tab Firefox switched away from.

Is there a setting in about:config that will prevent Firefox from displaying an error message unless and until the user has selected that tab his/herself for focus? (Or if not, could the developers code that into a future release?)

Good morning everyone, for at least 6 months now I'm having a lot of problems viewing some sites with Firefox. I have not been able to find common points between these sites, I only noticed that many are made in Wordpress.

Anyway when I load these sites Firefox takes 3 to 5 minutes to display them. Sometimes the screen is white, other times the wheel turns. Any other browser, of course, plays the same sites immediately.

To complicate things I have to add that the same sites sometimes start loading normally again, and then stop loading. But not all of them. I mean that one starts working again, another one continues not to work and vice versa.

I've done dozens of tests without being able to solve the problem in any way. I list them:

1. Deactivated all the extensions, even uninstalled, loaded Firefox in safe mode and nothing to do. 2. Uninstalled Firefox completely (cleaning %appdata%, windows registry and program folders) and reinstalled clean, no go. 3. Installed various versions of Firefox Developer, 32 bit, ESR, normal, even portable, always without extensions and with standard configuration and nothing to do. 4. Unplugged the network cable and connected in thetering / wifi with the 4G of the cell phone and nothing to do. 5. Tried a neighbor's wifi and nothing to do. 6. Wiped the pc, registry, uninstalled any software that wasn't absolutely necessary and nothing to do. 7. Started Windows in safe mode and nothing to do. 8. Uninstalled Eset Antivirus (I have a friend who has the same antivirus anyway and he can see any site perfectly with Firefox), deactivated Windows Defender as well and nothing to do. 9. I've followed the advice of dozens of articles modifying about:config in various ways (always making a backup first) and nothing to do. 10. Checked the pc with 4 different antivirus, antirootkit, antimalware and it was perfectly clean.

At this point I don't know what to do except give up using Firefox after a decade, because the problem seems to increase, in the sense that the sites that I can't load are more and more.

If someone can help me to avoid it I am very grateful...

In Mac OS, when the locale is right-to-left, the window control buttons should appear in the top-right side of the window. In case of tabbed window it should show before tabs. That is not the case here in Mozilla products. They show to the left in a malformed way. Only the close button is clickable, the Minimize button is barely visible and the Zoom button is totally hidden off-canvas. (Please see attached screenshot).
