I cannot just get sync to start. It continuously asks to confirm the SignIn, when tried to sync. Then it keeps sending "New sign-in to Firefox" every time it asks to sign in again.

The menu-window always just shows "Reconnect to sync..." After clicking it, it opens: about:preferences#sync There is "Sign in to continue". I sign in with the correct user+pass, it sends Email "New sign-in to Firefox", and goes to about:preferences#sync There again it asks "Please sign in to reconnect user@email" and it shows a pop-up window "Sync, enabled, Firefox will begin syncing momentarily."

... and that continues over and over again, email-box is getting new "New sign-in to Firefox" every time and it annoyingly refuse to start to sync.

The syncing with that firefox-account works with Android phone and Android-tablet, but not with Firefox v50.1.0 in Fedora Linux.

No proxies are in use. No NoScript-extension. uMatrix extensions has "enable everyting from *".

After initiating Firefox its size continues growing and I can not stop it from doing so. I verify there is only one copy running so there are no dups. Things get so slow I finally shut it down and go to another browser which stays at a reasonable size. Right now Firefox is at 433,344 K and growing. What can I do to keep this under 100,000 K?

thanks toucango

I've noticed that the browser becomes to get sluggish on me ever since the update to 50.1 on a Win 7 64-bit.

I open task manager and I see it growing and growing under the Memory column over 1GB and growing.

I gotta close the program and restart it. I only have like two or three open tabs, nothing major, just reading text sites without flash or video.

I also tried it without any plugins running, but the same issue. Memory just growing until the browsing become sluggish.

Like I said, I didn't have this issue before the update. Memory would stay around less than 300MB or perhaps less.

I'm having multiple crashes, on different sites (mainly sites with video's / flash). Also happens in Safe Mode. I have hardware acceleration on (also tried it off). My flash is up-to-date.

I've tried resetting Firefox, removing add-ons, running in safe mode, malwarebytes, uninstall/reinstall and it's still crashing.

First I've been using firefox for well over 10 years as my main browser so thanks to all who contribute.

I always keep it up-to-date but the latest update does not load what seems the flash part which is actually the whole site from loading with a static 'loading' circle in the middle of the screen, it never completes.

Internet Explorer (latest) loads it fine and I have just restored back to version 50.1.0 of firefox as this still works as it did before updating and loads my5.tv straight away. However I would like to keep it up-to-date so I hope this is resolved quickly.

I should also say I tried disabling add-ons/restart with add-ons disabled/using a new firefox profile with no additional extras and still the page did not complete at all.

Youtube seems fine.

Thanks all!

Each new release of FF is slower to load and unload than the last. Having to wait 10 - 15 seconds for each is just not acceptable.

With each release of FF since 27, loading and unloading time has increased. It now takes 10-15 seconds from clicking the desktop icon to being useable. FF page is displayed for 90% of that time. A significant part of the start up delay is FF connecting to something (what?) before it can be used. Share Data is disabled, minimal number of addons. It takes just as long to unload, which for general browsing would be less of an issue but when shelled from another application a 15 second wait for it to unload makes it unviable. In comparison, IE 11 takes less than 5 secs to load to and unloads almost instantaneously. If this issue isn't addressed, then after five years and with a heavy heart, I'll have to go back to IE.

Since Firefox was update I can't download pdfs from the sites I have to use for work. If there is anyone who is willing to work with me or can fix the issue I’d appreciate it. However, your help system has simply left me flat at this point since it seems to have a no-contact, hands-off policy.

My Firefox setting is to clear history on closing, so every instance of Firefox is a new instance with no history - closed out and tried again after the pdfs refused to download the first time Tried to update plugin for Adobe Acrobat - didn't work Tried to let Firefox update all plugins itself - didn't work Tried all fixes for pdfs in help lookups, including resetting Firefox, changing to use Firefox previewer, etc. Created exception to popup blocking for Costco vendor website Removed popup blocking entirely Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox

By the way, your image upload failed miserably. I was going to upload a pdf showing the conversation trail between the Costco help desk and myself regarding the pdfs, but the upload of the image hung.

Also, I had a user account created, and it wouldn't let me log in. Updated password but same thing - no dice. Closed out of Friefox, went back in, still no luck. Re-set password again, but still not working. Have had to create a new personal account to get help. As a user am non-plussed by your non-support.

Any help will be appreciated. If no help forthcoming then my company will uninstall Firefox from every PC - it's currently our default browser but we can't afford non-productive time with a non-working browser.

Thanks, Beth Asher
