In the past 5 minutes, MFF 73.0 x64 crashed 3 times. I've sent an error report, I always do, so quite a few should be at Moz. System: I5 6600K 16gb RAM GTX 1060 6GB 16tb disk space, of which 60% to 70% in use.
Crashes are irregular in time, but always with an instant CDT.
Tabs also frequently crash out on me, for no apparent reason. This too happens at irregular intervals. See picture below.
Please advice? Thank you. Xog.

I have used Firefox for many years. I frequently have many tabs open. I have recently begun to have this problem: I open a site that uses a CDN for images, and the images will not load, and I get the error message in the title for the images.
Creating a new profile sometimes fixes it. Getting rid of cookies sometimes fixes it. but changing to a new profile is time consuming and inconvenient. Why am I suddenly having this problem?
This is the page where the problem occurs: https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/goes/conus_band.php?sat=G16&band=GEOCOLOR&length=12

I just now cleared my cache, deleted nearly all cookies manually, restarted FireFox, and can't view these images.

All of which are recommended add ons.
The other day I ended up with an issue where I was redirected to a "Prize" site. I have since wiped my drive and reloaded my OS... but I want to make sure this doesn't happen again.
So here's the story
I clicked on this website, and the first couple times I got this web page, which was different
from what I was supposed to get,
and the 3rd time I got a warning from Ublock Origin about https://minently.com/RnSda/rDN#/ojdn/-nsy7qV12RbEJREofa... etc..... and then the fourth time I got the website which was https://occult-study.org/left-hand-path-and-right-hand-path/
Now I no longer get that bizarre site any longer (It said I made the 5
billionth search and won a prize and then my computer beeped), but WTF was that and why did it happen?
Here is the full link to what I initially got... it seems to change for some reason

When logging on to public wifi network that requires a login name and password from my Windows 10 laptop with Firefox set as the default browser, my internet security application (BitDefender) shows a suspicious connection warning and blocks every effort to connect. When I try to log in with Chrome set as the default browser, the process works normally, that is, the network login page opens automatically and Bitdefender does not display a warning. I don't want to have to change my default browser every time I connect to WiFi in a coffee shop or an airport. This has been bothering me for years. Do you have any suggestions?

Updated yesterday. Now firefox is not working. It starts just fine but can't seem to access the internet. I've checked my security software and found no blocking occurring. If I click on help/about that window pops up but the links in it do not work However it does say it is up to date. The troubleshooting page opens but the options page won't. That is unless I choose to refresh firefox, then sometimes it loads but once I close and reopen firefox or try to access another webpage it's gone and won't come back.
It is not running in compatibility mode. I've tried running it in compatibility mode but again nothing. I've tried using different profiles (old and new) and still nothing. When I try to load a page there is nothing happening at all. No little wait sign, no messages... nothing. After closing firefox and then checking task manager I can see that firefox is still running. From there I can manually close it. The instances that are still running seem to be for whatever I tried to load that didn't.
Since this happened I've also installed an older version as well (72.0.2) and it works just fine. It's what I'm using to be here. It's just 73 that is stuck. Other browsers I use are Opera (works just fine) and IE (also works) I don't use IE for anything but it works.
My OS is Win8.1 64bit my browsers are also 64bit.

I previously saw a post about having the confirmation dialog popping up on all windows (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1574853) but that didn't address my issue. That bug was fixed and the dialog box doesn't pop up across all windows, but what does happen is every firefox window gets alerted and turns orange as an alert and stays orange until each window is clicked. I went to WebAuthn.io to test this.
This is intrusive to my work as I have multiple virtual desktops and it alerts in all firefox windows across all my virtual desktops. I have my taskbar hidden but when these notifications pop up, this overlays on top of my current applications.
Picture of the effect is attached.
Is there any way to prevent this? Is this intended? If not, how can I remove this annoying notification?
Current firefox version is 68.5.0esr (64-bit). Is this potentially a bug in the ESR update channel that might have been fixed in another firefox version?

Firefox and Thunderbird stopped to open the application window same day (about a week ago): only firefox.exe and thunderbird.exe processes start. Task Manager also only lists the processes, no applications. This process is very hard to kill, Task Manager can't end it, nor elevated rights Command Prompt TASKKILL with /FE, NirSoft NirCmd nor PSTools pskill64.exe nor Process Explorer. I have also tried ending all the other processes first I can think of, including explorer.exe, does not help. I'm testing with two administrator level accounts and I'm mostly working this problem with Firefox now, although Thunderbird shows the same symptoms.
My system is a clone desktop computer Windows 7 PRO 64bit UK, AMD:n Phenom II CPU, GeForce 1050Ti display adapter.
As antivirus I have Avira Free Antivirus, and I have some suspicions it may be the root of the problems this time. For couple of weeks ago it updated with a new user interface and installed new components. To test that, I tried to uninstall Avira. Each component needs to be uninstalled separately using Windows Programs and Features: two components uninstalled cleanly, one component left an open minimized window that one couldn't pop open nor close. Antivirus and VPN do not uninstall: after you are asked do you want to uninstall and answer YES, nothing else visible happens. If you try to start another uninstall job, you get a window telling you can't start another as one program is already being uninstalled or changed. And waiting doesn't help. I have a support question about it in Avira forum.
Also last week, Flash Player installation failed with 89% done, tried twice and with same result. And the newest GeForce Graphics adapter drivers installation failed also. Both of those usually always install succesfully.
Microsoft System File Checker SFC /SCANNOW does not find problems, nor does Windows disc chechker tool. I also run: File and Folder Troubleshooter winfilefolder.DiagCab and Microsoft Program Install and Uninstall troubleshooter MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall.meta.diagcab ja Program_Install_and_Uninstall.diagcab. Avira support recommends the Install and Uninstall troubleshooter to get rid of some old Avira rubbish. Also compared Windows folders rights to default rights listed in some web site: did not find differences with the couple of dozen folders I compared. Data Execution Prevention (DEP) according to Process Explorer is enabled looking at Firefox.exe process properties. I know command lines to change DEP settings and found it in System Performance Properties settings also, but have not touched it.
I've removed Firefox and Thunderbird parent.lock -files, with Firefoxilla both from profile folder C:\Users\USERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\PROFILENAME and temporary folder C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\firefox before trying to start Firefox again. And since I can't kill the process otherwise, it also means after rebooting the computer.
Found an advice opening Firefox with SHIFT-key down, should open a safe-mode of the browser. Well, opened only the process in my case.
There are no previous session related saves (sessionCheckpoints.json, sessionstore.jsonlz4, sessionstore.js) in the profile folder any more, and the sessionstore-backups folder is empty.
I removed the Firefox installation, rebooted, and installed the 73.0 version 13.02.2020. It behaves similarly: only the process starts.
Added -p parameter to the Firefox shortcut, and in Windows SAFE MODE was able to create a new profile: in normal mode Windows the window for creating/changing profile does not open. Firefox doesn't open application window in Windows safe mode either, also tried to run it as administrator option, and pressing SHIFT key, but neither helped. The newly created profile folder only has one file: times.json.
When installed Firefox again, it wasn't a clean installation: the Firefox folder was empty of files, but I did install into the same folder. Also did not edit register nor delete the profile folder. Which is what I'm gonna try next. However, Thunderbird does not use Firefox's profile, so why does it stop opening the application window same time with Firefox? I don't think Firefox's profile folder can cause all these installation problems and Thunderbird problem. My bet is more likely Avira.

When I go to a site that use Flash. Firefox load like 20% of the Flash file. Then it freeze Firefox. And Firefox doesn't crash. This ends in a full computer freezing. My mouse stopping working, my keyboard stopping working. I need to restart my computer every time. Because nothing is functionally.
I have tried other web-browsers and those doesn't have this problem. It works, but not in Firefox.
Information: Windows 10 Pro x64 - version 1909 ( OS Build: 18363.657 ) Firefox 73.0.1

I am having a similar ongoing issue with Firefox refusing to open, and none of the fixes I've seen in this forum have worked. When clicking the icon it bounces once and then disappears from the dock. Honestly, this started happening about August 2018, and in my troubleshooting decided to give the Developer edition a try, and for some reason that one worked so I stuck with it.
Shortly thereafter (a week or two) whenever I closed down the Mac, Firefox Dev wouldn't re-open. Deleting and reinstalling would work, but I'd have to re-set all my settings, re-activate the theme, etc., and all the browsing history would be lost. So, since then I would rarely shut it down.
A few days ago I had to shut the Mac down completely, but this time Firefox Dev wouldn't open after re-installing. Oddly, I tried regular Firefox again as a solution, and it opened this time. I tested it out by shutting the Mac down completely, then restarting, and it retained all of the settings! I was really glad to once again be able to shut down my laptop at the end of the day without the headache of having to reinstall and re-set everything.
Then this morning, boom - back to the same nonsense, except now it won't open at all. Neither the regular FF or the Developer edition will work. I've done clean uninstalls to see if that was the problem, as in: removed them from the Applications folder, removed them from the Downloads folder, removed the /Firefox folder from user/Library/Application Support/, and emptying the Trash.
I saw in one Support post to delete the fbplugin file, 'as that had been causing Firefox to crash'. The closest I found to an 'fbplugin' file was a bundle-config.1 file, which contained 'fbplugin' throughout the file code numerous times. I renamed it temporarily, but didn't delete it. That didn't help the non-opening problem either.
I also tried installing Firefox v 71, same result as the others.
Keep in mind after attempting all of these solutions of deleting, reinstalling, changing file names, etc., I did a complete shutdown and restart. Also, I have not downloaded, updated, or changed anything since last week's phenomenon of regular Firefox beginning to work again. So I'm completely stumped and would appreciate any help. I'm currently running macOS Catalina 10.15.3. TIA.

Hello Firefox community,
As I realized some time ago, Firefox makes simulatneous requests againgst disk cache and network called "Race Cache With Network" (explained here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267945). In my home country, this has never bothered me as I had an unlimited data plan and therefore was pleased to get fast loading webpages.
But now, I moved to a country without unlimited data plans (Ghana, 40GB per month, 120GHC, approx. 20€, approx. 22USD) and I'm thinking about how this feature must be eating up peoples data. Because even if you visited a webpage before and most of data is within your disk cache, Firefox will still issue a network request, resulting in increased network activity and therefore consuming additional data.
In my opinion this adversely affects people in emerging countries, as internet is already a pricey good and Firefox is using more data than necessary, just to allow webpages to load fractions of seconds faster.
Why is there no UI option (I know it can be turned off, using config key "network.http.rcwn.enabled") for users to turn this feature off more easily in order to save data? Furthermore, this behaviour is not even explained to users, so users might not even know Firefox consumes more data than expected.
With best regards, Gabriel

This appears to be a specific issue when navigating from Rarbg.to to imdb, After loading any IMDB page from a rarbg.to page, left clicking on the parent's guide closes the tab. Steps to reproduce: 1) Load any rarbg.to entry (https://rarbg.to/torrent/gwy4p7f) 2) Using the middle mouse button, click on the imdb link to open this in a separate page. 3) on the imdb page scroll down to the parent's guide and left click on "View Content Advisory" 4) The tab with IMDb will close.
This happens on Windows and Linux too.
Firefox on Linux/ Wayland/ Sway is haveing trouble scaling on multiple screens when the screens have different scaling ratios
My setup: Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 192…
Firefox versions 70-74, developer version and stable; Ubuntu 19.10 with Wayland/ Sway; Internal Monitor 3000x2000 with scaling ratio 2.0 + External Monitor 1920x1080 with scaling ratio 1.0
Ever since version 70 I noticed that Firefox would on first start scale either according to the external or internal monitor, and be perfectly workable on that one. But when moving it to the other monitor/ opening a new window on the other monitor it would not scale properly, but render according to the scaling factor of the other monitor. So, e.g. when moving from the internal to the external screen it would only render to the top left quarter of the screen, while the application was actually being the right size. At the same time the input mapping was according to the actual window dimensions, and not according to the visual rendering of Firefox. This would also happen the other way round, with Firefox then only rendering the top left part of the web page to the entire screen.
You can see this well on the attached screenshot, but notice that sway is a tiling window manager, so Firefox should actually be exactly the same size as the terminal next to it. Firefox also renders like this when the scaling factor was changed at run time, so the issue seems to me that Firefox on Wayland checks the scaling factor on startup just once globally and does not realize when it was changed or that it can be different on different monitors.

When I ask my webmail to print an email, the dialogue window pops us as expected. In that window I expect a small top bar with a close (cross) and print (printer) icons, as shown in the first image added (obtained with Linux Ubuntu 18.04, Firefox 71).
Instead, in a computer with Linux Ubuntu 14.04 and Firefox 66, I get gigantic icons, as wide as the page width, as shown in the second image added. This is certainly an issue when I want to print to file; I have not tried and sent the job to a printer since I am not interested in that use at this moment. It used to work fine for years until a certain point, but I cannot pinpoint when it went wrong and the possible whys. Note that the body of the mail is formatted regularly, and that also the icons at the bottom (say, an attachment) are magnified disproportionately.
There is an archived post in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176032 that reports a similar problem. However, the diagnose is different. The large icon is not an issue of yahoo mail on two counts: 1) the big X and printer icons are supposed to be there, and the issue is that they are magnified without a reason; 2) the problem does not arise with the same webmail service in other computers. I suspect that it must be some local setting of Firefox that has been changed in a mistake?
Any ideas on fixes and workarounds? Thanks for helping out
