Hello, Before I updated to version 96, Firefox was FAST, loaded almost instantly, and worked great. Now, it takes 90 seconds to load and even longer to open a link. I can hear the HD seeking constantly only when Firefox has loaded. Using Win7 64bit, HP Envy tower with core i7 3.2 Ghz, resource meters: CPU almost zero, memory about 25%. Thanks Steve

I restored Firefox, which left a folder named "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop.

How do I delete it? I can't!

Even if I remove the "read only" property and remove the "deny delete" setting, the damn thing won't go away!

How.Do.I.Kill.The.Folder???

I don't seem to remember Chrome or even Edge making the decision to clutter my Desktop indefinitely for no reason at all...

6 hours ago, I shut down my Windows 10 laptop to buy lunch.

1 hour later, I turned on my laptop. But then Firefox stopped loading any tabs. My Internet — my other browsers like Chrome and Edge — have all been working perfectly. See below — Firefox in "Troubleshoot Mode" works perfectly!

Therefore, is one of my ≥ 30 Add Ons the glitch? How can I most productively suss out which Add On, without disabling each of my ≥ 30 Add Ons singly?

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

Ever since I updated to Firefox 96, I have been receiving the error message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." at times. Refreshing does help. This did not seem to happen with Firefox 95. I am currently on Firefox 96.0.2. I tried restarting the computer, tried refreshing Firefox, tried disabling hardware acceleration, etc., and the issue still persists.

Why Do I always have to press the "Close Firefox" button when re-opening Firefox immediately after closing it? Should automatically close the Firefox Windows processes without asking me first! Is there an option that I missed in Settings that stops this from happening?

Ever since upgrading to windows 11 firefox developer edition will not work for me at all.

I have reinstalled it multiple times now and every single time its the same thing, after a fresh install I can open the browser, use it once, close the browser and then it breaks and I am unable to use it again - sometimes i cant even open it up again it creates a background process in the task manager but never appears.

  • - None of the tabs will load anything at all including any of the settings pages or debug/troubleshooting page (about:<page>) - its like it doesnt even attempt to load anything its completely unresponsive
  • - Clicking on any buttons in firefox/options menu do nothing
  • - If i close it i see between 2-10 firefox processes appear in my task manager which i have to go through and end each task before i am able to open the browser up again and even then that doesnt always work.
  • - Because it opens a bunch of processes when you close the browser and this prevents it from re-opening it is not possible to put it into troubleshooting mode
  • - Even after a fresh install (described below) after re-installing the browser it always opens for the first time with a message saying that 'I have reinstalled firefox would i like to refresh the browser' with a button to refresh - If i click this refresh button it instantly breaks it

In order to fix this I have to completely remove firefox from my machine including:

  • - Everything in my users folder
  • - Everything in program files/programdata
  • - Search my C:\ drive and remove all traces of mozilla/firefox i can find
  • - Clear all temp files
  • - Run a disk cleanup
  • - Restart my machine

Before i can attempt to install firefox again. If i dont do this after i reinstall it opens firefox up in exactly the same state it was in before i uninstalled it, same tabs open & completely unresponsive.

Hello, I'm encountering multiple crashes from firefox per day. Even after refreshing it twice.

I've sent in multiple reports as well. Not sure if they can accessed to troubleshoot.

I feel like it's video related? It only started doing this at about the time I started using a TV as a second screen. There isn't a real strong correlation with the crashes. Sometimes Youtube, Messenger, Reddit, it acts very stubborn to load different pages I click on google and then crashes. The page will be missing usually when I reopen firefox as well.

I've attached an image of a recent crash. I don't always get these error messages either.

Appreciate some help.

When on msn.com, newsfeeds often go blank and a message at the top of the page reads, "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page," and there's a "stop" button. I've been having this frequently the last few days and had never had it before. How do I make it go away? Thanks.

When I close FF seems to close correctly I can close all programs then shut down the laptop But when I restart the computer then start up FF, Fire Fox tries to reload the last Browsing session. No crash had happened and I always start a new session. The message that I receive has been clipped and attached. I have tried to close using the x at the open tab and the x at the top right corner I get the same results.

Hi all, for the past two days or so my Firefox has been crashing very often. It seems to have started out of nowhere as I did not change any settings.

I have tried:

Refreshing Firefox Uninstalling and reinstalling Disabling and removing all extensions Running in troubleshoot mode Disabling themes

Yet it still crashes - usually when switching tabs, but it often crashes on it's own while I'm not even doing anything.

Any help would be fantastic

I am on an iMac running High Sierra 10.13.6. For the last couple months whenever I try to close Firefox it either crashes or I have to force quit Firefox to make it quit. But on restart tabs have been restored, or I have been able to bring them back using "restore tabs".

Two days ago my wife was using my computer (I was out of town) and when she finished she tried to turn off the computer. She got a message that Firefox was not closing so the computer could not shut down, then a minute later (without her doing anything) the computer did shut down.

I got home todaty and started the computer. Opened Firefox and found all of my saved/open tabs (~25) were gone. No "restore tabs" option available.

Is there any way I can locate and restore the missing tabs? I've looked through some posts in Support, but all of the crash issues I found were of a different type. And it would also be really nice if I can get Firefox to close normally again. Are there any plugins that commonly cause this kind of problem?

Thanks in advance for any help!
