Swiping itself works but the animation is gone altogether. Is there a way to reenable this? I think the feature is gone since mid December. It made FF so much more user friendly, I hope the disappearance is only temporary (and not caused by suits).

Basically everything is very slow and every action takes a whole lot of time to complete - Switching tabs takes about half a second to a full second (About 5 seconds if there's another tab currently loading/refreshing), clicking the middle mouse button takes again, about half a second to a full second for the scroll arrows to show up, same exact thing with regularly clicking the scroll bar on the right, Firefox pretty much freezes for about a whole second before reacting to the click.

I've tried running Firefox with addons disabled, that hasn't helped, which I was sure it wouldn't since this problem started out before I even got any addons - pretty much the second I installed Firefox. I've running Firefox on a brand new SSD card and a fresh installation of Windows 8.1. I've tried both Aurora and Nightly (currently using Nightly), both are just as slow.

I haven't tried resetting, since again, issue was already there when I first installed Firefox.

I decided to try Nightly, and had Firefox and Nightly both installed. After I did and tried to log onto my gmail account, Firefox (and Nightly) had problems with the redirection to the gmail web site.

I have now uninstalled Nightly, and the problem disappeared. I, therefore, suspect there is some sort of bug in Nightly.

When I scroll my mouse wheel down or up, it goes by page instead of 3 lines (as set in Win7). This is happening only in Nightly 39.0a1 (2015-02-24), and I can't find where to change the setting, and frankly don't know how it got changed in the first place. Every other application does the 3 lines like they're supposed to. I was just scrolling thru my email and BOOM it started going by page. I've rebooted and tried holding every combination of CTRL/ALT/SHIFT and scrolling thinking that might help. Any ideas?

When Mozilla support sends a reply to my Hotmail account it contains two links. One is "This doesn't solve my problem" the other is "browse for unsolved questions and help a Firefox User". In the Nightly browser, if I click on either of these the browser freezes. No other tab can be opened; the back arrow cannot be used; the refresh symbol does not work; and Nightly can only be closed from the Task manager. Worse, if it is left open it disables other applications. While the task manager is open, if it is moved, it leaves a trail of repeated copies of itself. If Quicken is closed part of the display remains on the screen. Even using CTL+ALT+DEL to refresh the screen and asking only to open the task manager does not resolve this problem. Am I REALLY part of a Beta test or did you all just skip Alpha and give us anything that looked like it could be called a browser?

I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask this, but I've recently been dealing with something weird with regard to the update feature in Nightly.

Yesterday, I decided to check for an update on Nightly, and it started downloading. Once finished, I was prompted to restart to let the update take affect.

After waiting for a minute, I noticed nothing opening up again. I opened up Task Manager (I'm on Windows 10 Pro) and saw that both Nightly and the Nightly update service were both in the Backgrounds Processes section.

After a bit of waiting, the update process vanished, but Nightly remained no matter how much time passed.

I had to end up killing/ending the process/task. I did this twice more and it wasn't until the third attempt when I realized I was already running the latest version of nightly. Yet, Nightly, for whatever reason still attempted to receive/install an update.

I'm sure there are already similar questions like this, but I may not have come across them.

It is worth mentioning that I have both Firefox 54.0 Release (32-bit) AND Nightly 56.0a1 release installed on my system.

I'm currently running two profiles: the default is stuck with just Firefox release, and I created a separate profile for nightly.

Annoyingly, Nightly installs and initially runs with the default profile in use. I find this extremely annoying and prone to give errors.

That aside, I followed a guide on the Stack Exchange that addressed how to get Ngihtly to run with a predefined profile.

I edited the shortcut properties (in start menu folder/directory) and added to the Target field a "-p profile_name".

This was done after initial installation and it's been working since then.

All of the sudden, it stopped working. Not sure why.

Clicking on Nightly now only opens the standard/stab;e Firefox application.

What I'm most upset about is that I actually uninstalled Nightly after noticing the weird update inconsistency, and later reinstalled it.

The issue persisted and I'm about to try again.

Why did Nightly think it needed to be updated in the first place?

I can only imagine that some kind of corruption occurred and now it's getting worse.

Another last testament:

I tried refreshing the profile for nightly, and it didn't do anything.

When I uninstalled Nightly the first time, a folder was created in my Desktop which related to an old profile.

Sine I was given no instructions as to what to with that, and noticed no performance conflict when running Nightly after reinstalling, I deleted the folder.

What bug am I suffering from?

Using the latest Nightly version which I update every day. For the last couple of weeks the tabs will crash as soon as I open Nightly unless I am in Safe Mode. That said, I do not have any add-ons or extensions enabled other than the default Mozilla ones. Running the system report, it does list 14 extensions that do show up when I simply use the menu to open the add-ons/extensions page. I am attaching my about:support info. Anyway, I wonder if it is one of these extensions that is causing the problem since being in safe mode prevents the crashes from happening. At first I thought it was a universal problem and if I simply kept updating the program it would fix the problem but since it has persisted this long I am guessing it is something unique to me.... Thanks for your help, Dan

There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.

Just for nightly:

For the last week or so (sorry I can't be more specific). When I update the FF Nightly [58.0a1 (2017-10-13) (64-bit)] It keeps breaking something so that I can no longer access HTTPS sites from Nightly. I get the "Secure Connection Failed" page (SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE) for all HTTPS pages (mozillia.org too). It doesn't happen with every update but it has happened at least 3 or 4 times in the last week.

I can access HTTPS from regular Firefox 56.0 if I close nightly first. I can access HTTPS from Chrome/Chromium. Manually disabling all of the add-ons has no effect. However, Nightly will start in safe mode. I suspect that safe mode bypasses the profile. To fix this, I have to reset Firefox, which starts a new profile.

I've been using Firefox Nightly for a while, but I think it updated today an now it crashes on startup. I have been completely unable to use Firefox since the last update.

Here's the error log:

and

https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/dc99de52-2869-428b-a8da-b745c0171105


I tried running in safe mode with "firefox -safe-mode", but it still crashes.

I also tried deleting my profile from "%appdata%/firefox/profiles" but that didn't help either.

Any ideas? Is there anyway I can go back one version in Firefox nightly?

Thanks!

I'm running Nightly on Debian Linux.

It just downloaded and updated to the latest version - 59.0a1 (2017-12-17) (64-bit) - and I lost all my bookmarks and history.

I saw in my ~/.mozilla/firefox/[profile]/bookmarkbackups that there were old backups.

I tried to follow the help docs, copied the current places.sqlite and I opened the bookmarks menu and under Import and Restore, I chose the latest file and restored it.

It took a few minutes, but my bookmarks came back. My history, however, is still missing.

This is very distressing.

Can someone please help?

Thanks.

Please bear with me while I get this all out.

I think I want to be in charge of the group that is responsible for overall Firefox performance, if only for one day.

Firefox can be totally unusable at times, for as long as 48 hours while it stumbles and can't make up it's mind. Oh yes, it will be up, just not running like the 3 other browsers I have for backup. It's a matter of freezing and hanging with the banner saying that Firefox is unresponsive. I can tell it's unresponsive. I want to know why. I've been trying to trouble shoot this for more time than I can remember. If Firefox is going to just sit there looking stupid while trying to annoy me, it's doing that just fine. What it won't do is allow me to shop on Amazon or eBay, read my email on gmail.com, have more than 3 or 4 tabs open, or try to watch any video, or accommodate searching without freezing. I need a font that is large enough to read, especially on the context menu. There are times I need to exit Firefox by using system explorer because Firefox won't allow me to exit when it hangs up, then I will restart it and for about 5 minutes it will actually perform.

All I have now is an attitude. What I can't get my head around is why on earth would the Firefox developers not fix this. I know, just by common sense and experience in computers for some 50 years that my experiences are not unique. I'll put good money on the developers knowing all about this issue. When Firefox made the changes to the rendering engine, and to the language used, I actually got excited. Finally, the hanging and freezing would be fixed. Sadly, this is not the case.

What can I personally do, with the exception of dumping Firefox for Chrome? Is this a comparability issue with windows 10? I have a hatred for Google. And yet, yesterday I had to open Chrome to complete a transaction on eBay. Firefox would not allow me to select a method of payment. It was a choice between PayPal or credit card and the seller would not allow anything but PayPal. It would not make the connection to PayPal, which is my normal choice. If I open Amazon, Firefox looses it's mind.

Just typing this has taken a miserable amount of time because Firefox just can't stop hanging up.
