Hello,

I have two PCs with OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 Linux with different hardware. At the very same time the Firefox browsers stopped completely working on both. By completely I mean one can start them and view pages like "about:support", but any attempt to open a new tab results in a message "Gah! Your tab just crashed!".

It doesn't work in Safe Mode either. There are close to none plugins on one of them, disabling plugins on the other Firefox doesn't help.

It can't be an issue of bad memory or drive or graphic card driver - the two computers are different and it happened at the same time.

It wouldn't even connect to my local router IP address, so it doesn't seem to be some issue with external routing.

It's been about 7-10 days since the issue started. I believe it may be either broken Firefox update or incompatible update of a system component that Firefox is dependent on.

Hello experts,

Hope you are all doing well.

On a corporate Thinkpad T480 running Windows 10 Version 1803 OS Build 17134.1006 Firefox is crashing daily. Chrome or IE doesn't have the same problem. Troubleshooting performed so far: 1. Tried running Firefox for a full day in Safe Mode: Still crashes - bp-d9e945ed-e475-4b92-a449-e3b620191002 2. Tried ESR version of Firefox - no improvement. 3. Re-installed Firefox a few times - no improvement. 4. Chrome, IE, Edge do not have the same problem but they are not Firefox : ) 5. Reviewed the Firefox crashes knowledge base and tried everything listed there. Last test was to use Firefox for a day in Safe Mode (wasn't easy but I coped with it)

Something i've noticed (not 100% sure about it) is that if I leave a private window open the crash is somehow more likely to occur.

So far my observations are that this is some sort of a memory leak-like problem as just before the crash tabs on the browser and some content on pages becomes blank when I hover over with the mouse. Task Manager shows very high Memory usage 1,5-2 GBs.

Any and all advises are welcomed. Thank you!

Regards, Dimitar

There is a delay sometimes when I type in the address bar. It only happens when using the address bar, when I use search bars in websites or type in Google Docs there is no delay. I tried opening Firefox on Safe Mode, but the problem persisted. I also tried resetting the all browser.urlbar preferences that I had modified to default, but it still lags.

On our non-persistent VDI environment we experiencing users where FireFox crashes frequently - We're running W7 Enterprise 32bits - Firefox version 60.6.1ESR 32 bits

i was expecting Sophos to causing this issue, so i created a new VDI machine without Sophos installed. The same issue appered.

I can reproduce the issue when launching a radio station on http://www.onlineluisteren.nl/ Issue appears between the 5 minutes and 2 hours

Worknotes: - Launched firefox in safe mode - Turned off hardware acceleration - created a new VDI image without our anti-virus 'Sophos' - issue was also happening with Firefox 60.5.2ESR

Etc. I try with safe modality, disable acceleration hardware. Change in about config the time of the script, turn false dom.ipc.processHangMonitor and dom.ipc.reportProcessHangs but nothing. The problem is only with some pages. Initially the error is Argh! The page crashs. When I restart in safe modality the error is on the top "the browser is slowed down from a page etc.". When I change things in about:config the error is about a script.

Someone can help me please? ThanksI am using 60.6.1esr (32 bit)

using quantum, 60.6.x

well, this is a no brainer: browser will not remember previous session if you clear the browsing data on exit. i want to both. i want to clear the browsing data on exit, and also be able to restore previous sessions:

clever internet programmer: that isn't possible me: like 'duh'

before the conversation goes that way, i want to say that i'm asking for an enhancement feature - to clear browsing data EXCEPT for the data needed to restore my sessions, which is something you guys probably already thought of, but may not have because of all the other fires you're expected to put out

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).

I have a Windows 10 Pro X64 Lenovo which is domain joined. The user frequently uses Firefox as their browser. When they do, they can get frequent and repeating Blue Screens. When I look at the memory dump files, I see that the faulting application is Firefox. Can somebody assist me with this file and offer some insight into how I can circumvent further disasters?

I do have the memory.dmp file. Can I share it?

Why are Instagram videos not now displaying in Firefox 52 ESR?

Instagram videos have stopped displaying for me in Firefox 52 ESR. It happened suddenly a day or two ago. There isn't even a placeholder there for them on the page any longer, just the text that goes with them with nothing where the video should be. If I try to view one from someone's IG page, it just shows as a black box. Static images are still displaying fine, just not the videos.

This is on my old Windows XP machine, where I have to use FF 52.9.0 ESR as it's the last XP compatible version. The videos are fine in FF65 on my Windows 10 machine needless to say. I've tried spoofing different user agent strings, but no difference.

The strange thing is that on Google Chrome 49, again the last version which works on XP, the videos still display fine, and that is much older than FF 52 ESR! Also, if I right click on the IG page in FF 52 ESR, and select the "View Page Info" option, the videos still appear in the list on the "Media" tab, and if selected, they still display and can be played in the preview pane below, so they're obviously not being actually blocked, and the browser can still play them, they are just not displaying inline in the pages as they should!

Anyone any idea what's happening here? There's no point in me asking Instagram, as I know they will just say that they no longer support Firefox 52 ESR! Thanks, Dave.

In the last few days (not sure exactly when) I have been unable to log on to my online bank account. Firefox freezes so I can't put my password into the relevant box. Plus none of the 'buttons' on Firefox will operate - file, edit etc. I have version 60.5.2. Firefox works fine on all other websites. I have tried emptying cache and deleting browsing history. I can access the online site with other browsers. Any ideas on how I can use Firefox to access my account
