Firefox (and also Thunderbird) crash on trying to load Yahoo mail login page

A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.

I recently bought a new laptop and seem to have Firefox constantly crashing in both normal and troubleshoot mode on both a Windows 11 OS as well as Linux OS's (Pop_OS and Manjaro). In general it will crash every 30 minutes or so but sometimes it can happen rapidly in a row.

I'm not sure what the problem could be but it sounds like a hardware problem? However I don't seem to be experiencing crashes on Edge or Opera when I tried them but I haven't tested it for too long yet. Does anyone have any advice or insight about this?

Here are some recent report ID's:

I am using firefox on a debian installation base: $ firefox-esr --version Mozilla Firefox 91.13.0esr $ uname -a Linux debian 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux $ These days web pages come with all kinds of cr@p; so, at times you need to just get all the links inside the page to parse/eyeball them. What I do is grab the "page source" and/or use "Link Gopher". I have been noticing lately that they don't work anymore. Why? The problem seems to relate to javascript generated pages. When you try to see the source all you see is some javascript one liner.

Of course, firefox must have a way to show the source since it shows to you the actual page unencrypted. Which settings in about:config should you change in order to be able to "go to the source" again? lbrtchx

I have tried disable extensions one by one but it does not seem to affect the problem. Or at least there isn't a clear pattern that can help isolate the problem.

How can I fix this? Can someone help me read these reports better?

From some point on, my Firefox started behaving strangely. When I start up the browser, it opens new window under other opened windows instead of does it above ones. When I try to open new window in an already running browser, it does it properly. In my mind, it's really uncomfortable and unintuitive behavior so it will be good if I can fix this issue and make Firefox starts up normally (on top of other windows) like all other applications in my system. I'm currently running on 64-bit Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (snap) version 109.0.1.

Thank in advance for any help or advice regarding my problem.

I recently transferred to Linux operating system, and when I login to firefox, and press sync, my saved logins aren't there. I've tried to log out then log back in, restarted the app several times, but won't show anything!

Before I transferred to Linux I was using Windows, and I made sure that the sync worked before transferring, so I tested the sync on a portable version of Firefox, and I was successful in syncing my saved logins.

But now it doesn't work, and I cannot see any of my passwords or logins, there is only 1 saved login which is locally stored, which was there before I logged into my account on Firefox.

I was looking for a solution to the VERY ANNOYING problem of having Firefox download PDFs I simply wanted to read from Firefox but not keep. I found the solution to that problem created by the Firefox devs themselves (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409#answer-1488645) and was going to leave it alone. It was just yet another obscure about:config setting to FIX a regression introduced by Firefox devs, no biggie, ALL firefox users are used to doing that by now since devs keep implementing solutions that look for problems instead of the other way around, but then someone said that you guys might get rid of the ability to disable this in the future. PLEASE DON'T. This "new way" of doing things is filling up MY HOME folder on Linux, not even my download folder. Instead of getting rid of this setting why don't you MAKE IT EXPLICIT in the downloads section. It's the least you can do since you created a problem that solves nothing. Most users who can't remember to download a pdf they were looking at won't remember how to look for it in the downloads folder either. You will just clutter people's download folder with JUNK for no reason and eat at their storage. I'll say it once and I'll say it again: the biggest advocates for Firefox's rival browsers are Firefox devs themselves smh.

Hi

Received following error when trying to load openai.com.

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to openai.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

This web page loads fine when connecting directly to server (using ctrl+shift+r).

Already cleared web cache, individual cookies for the web site, history-but error remains!
