Just out of the blue my browser stopped loading pages. I went through all the processes recommended here and none worked. With the browser open now, its using a high amount of CPU and the power usage is Very High. Nothing is open because it won't load anything. No error messages, just stuck with the little dot going side to side. I used chrome to download and install an update, but still nothing.

Help :(

When I go to create a new bookmark in firefox I find that the file name is already allocated, and that file name is appearing on all old bookmarks as well. Instead of saying Other Bookmarks it says Location. This is only happening since I moved to Version 95.0 I have had to stop trying to create new bookmarks, and would appreciate any help I can get.

This started two days ago. I did not recognize what was happening, but the computer slowed to a point of complete unresponsiveness. I had to hold the power button in for a hard shutdown. Next day, I was watching a YouTube video, the video stopped playing, and the computer slowed to a snail's pace. Task Manager revealed something was using up ALL system memory. A look at running processes showed that the culprit was Firefox.

Firefox would start normally, then gobble up all system memory over a few minutes, rendering the computer almost inoperable.

Tried garbage collection, CC, and minimize memory usage under about:memory. This would temporarily reduce overhead, but then it would climb back up next time I started Firefox.

The Ant Video Downloader underwent a redesign days ago; this memory issue started exactly two days ago, on Friday evening, the 7th of January, 2022.

I disabled the add-on. At this moment, Firefox memory use is 642,716 KB of an available 12 GB. There seems to be one main process using the largest share of memory (200-300,000 KB) with 12 other firefox.exe processes running concurrently, all using smaller amounts of system memory. Firefox memory use no longer climbs until all system memory is consumed.

Is there any way to rein in memory use by Firefox add-ons short of disabling them? Are other users reporting this issue? How are add-ons vetted prior to use with the browser? There are few of these video downloaders available. Most are merely copies of a single piece of non-functioning software—but listed under different names, supported by what are clearly fake reviews. Is anyone verifying the integrity of these add-ons in addition to their developers?

In this case, the developer is based in Hong Kong.

Thank you to the community for any assistance offered in this case.

Hi,

A few months back I turned on the permanent overwrite of the colour - to a custom colour - of visited links under General > Language and Appearance > Colour (I believe). I've since gone back to try and turn off this setting but nothing I seem to do in any arrangement of settings changes it.

As of now, all previously visited links show as purple, even if the website would've previous kept their colour unchanged after clicking. What I want to do is either stop links from changing colour after clicking them, or revert this setting to the Firefox default.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, After several issues with firefox not opening or loading websites properly, I attempted to do a clear reinstall of firefox. However upon installing I get the following series of issues which prevent firefox from working all together.

Upon starting up Firefox automatically opens the profile manager. On first attempt the "Create Profile Wizard" would not function all together. After manually adding the "Mozilla" and "Firefox" folders to %appdata% it will now open, however the following issues occur regardless of any attempt made on my behalf.

If attempting to save a new profile to the default location the following error occurs

Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable. [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED) [nsIToolkitProfileService.createProfile]" nsresult: "0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://mozapps/content/profile/createProfileWizard.js :: onFinish :: line 239" data: no]

If attempting to save a new profile to a different location the following error occurs when trying to either start up OR quit firefox

An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved.

After a times.json file is created

I have tried running in administrator mode, safe mode, everything I could possibly think of, and at this point I am convinced I will never be able to use firefox again despite having loved the browser for over a decade Attempting to find help through the knowledge base has completely failed

About a month ago, I started having a problem where all pages on YouTube randomly stop loading. It does this with no rhyme or reason and usually for around a minute at a time. It just hangs until it abruptly starts working again. Occasionally (like if I try to log out while this is happening), it will give me an error saying I'm "offline", even though I am most definitely not offline. During this time, all other websites (Google, Wikipedia, Hulu, etc) work fine, so I know it's not my Internet. Other than that, it doesn't give me any errors.

I am using a MSI laptop on Windows 10. Oddly enough, YouTube loads properly in incognito mode and in Windows Edge, but clearing my cache and cookies, disabling my extensions, and updating Firefox to the latest version didn't solve the problem. I even enabled each of my extensions separately in incognito mode while YouTube wasn't loading in a normal window, and each time YouTube loaded properly in the private window while simultaneously not loading in the normal one, so I know none of my extensions are causing the problem. Restarting my computer also didn't do anything. This problem persists when logged in or out of YouTube, no matter the account.

I reported this issue to YouTube back on December 29, but it hasn't been fixed. I also made a post on the YouTube Community a few days ago, but I didn't get any helpful answers. Any help would be appreciated!

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

I have a problem with running Firefox v95.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04 operating system. When I first open Firefox, process with command /usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window starts and taking up 100% CPU. This process doesn't stop even if after closing Firefox and after a while crash reporters says that Firefox is crashed. While the browser is open and the mentioned process is running, I can't open any web page, since it's loading infinitely. I attached here screenshots of both process details and crash reporter.

FireFox has been my default browser for many years and it has been great, no problems. Within the past three months, however, I've been unable to access financial sites that I regularly use. The first was in October when one site upgraded its account access security. Initially, FireFox worked after the upgrade, but then I could no longer log into my account. I spoke to support staff for that website and they said they've been receiving complaints from other clients who use FireFox and suggested I use another browser, which I did and was able to access my account. Today another financial site suddenly blocked access using FireFox with a message that I needed to unblock cookies for the site, so I went into FireFox security settings and added the site's address to the exceptions list, but still could not enter the site. I am having no problems logging onto these sites with another browser, but FireFox is not working. Any suggestions? I would like to keep FireFox as my default browser, if that's possible. Thanks!

Hello,

I am unable to remember my Firefox account password after re imaging my computer. Fortunately, I did create and save my recovery keys.

I've reviewed the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/reset-your-firefox-account-password-recovery-keys

However, when I click the pass reset link in the email as dictated in step 2 under the 'Reset your password with your recovery keys' section, I do not see any fields to enter my recovery key as highlighted in step 3. I haven't taken this step yet because I do not want to lose my password and bookmark information associated to my account.

Can you please confirm how to utilize my recovery codes?

Thank you for your time.

It seems that there was an internal page for permissions, namely about:permissions. As I was trying to find an answer to my question, I found many volunteers at Mozilla Support would talk about this, but what I'm asking for is different. I'm looking for a way to list websites per permission, that is, when I want to disable a permission for a bunch of websites at once, I specify the permission and remove the websites I do not want to have that permission. In one of the questions on the site, an extension called SQLite Manager was mentioned and seemed to be the solution. This extension, though, doesn't exist anymore. If what I'm looking for can be done through this extension, I'd like to know if there is an alternative. If it doesn't serve the purpose that I am talking about, I'd be happy to know if there is a different workaround.

As the title suggests, I just want firefox to be nice to use again. Since its latest update it is far from nice. Too much stuff is set to darkmode, even though I have googled like crazy and fiddled with most, if not all, about:config options to try and restore it.

I will do whatever it takes, but my firefox theme (abstract firefox) must remain intact. Surely there is something I can do in the userChrome.css or whatever it's called.

It is just so very tiring having to fix mistakes made by firefox, that keeps changing stuff for the worse. Changes that nobody ever asked for. I am giving the browser one more chance for old times sake, since I have been using it for 20 years or thereabouts. So please, firefox... stop trying to force your users into using stuff that your staff team or whatever likes to use. Think of your users.

And please help me out.

Thank you.
