I use a MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and I've gotten the dreaded "Firefox is already open" message. Firefox isn't my primary browser but I do have tabs and bookmarks saved there. This has happened before, and last time I ended up following advice to delete my profile which wiped out my entire account (it was the only profile there, and I should have looked for an alternate solution because that clearly wasn't it).

I was very interested in switching from Chrome to Firefox permanently, but I'll be honest, I'm pretty frustrated that this keeps happening and putting my tabs/bookmarks/history/etc in jeopardy. If someone could provide a straightforward explanation as to how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Btw, I already tried viewing FireFox in the activity monitor as I saw another site suggest and it wouldn't let me quit it (I saw it greyed out).

When I go into the Settings tab, I see a message at the top of the page that says "Your browser is managed by your organization". This is a private laptop so there should not be any organization managing my browser.

I have searched for help articles to try and solve this problem myself. They all recommend editing a key in the Windows registry, specifically HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox . However, this registry folder does not exist in my laptop. Who is managing my browser? How can I stop them?

Good evening. I'm seeking some help with an issue I'm having with Firefox.

As stated above, Firefox insta-crashes on startup. Hangs on opening in troubleshoot mode, then crashes after another 20 seconds and asks me to submit a report.

I believe this may have to do with the amount of tabs I had open when last using the browser. This morning I opened it up with about 7.8k tabs, and then closed it after adding another hundred. After trying to open the browser again, that's when the issues started. Until that point, the browser had been responsive and stable.

I've tried doing fresh installs of the browser and inserting the old data from the old profile, restoring to yesterday, and even trying without internet connection.

I have a Ryzen 5600X and 32GB of RAM, so I do not believe system resources are an issue.

Attached are some images. If any help could be provided, that'd be much appreciated.

I have been using Firefox for my Yahoo email for several years. Yesterday afternoon, it stopped working correctly. Only the most recent 10 or so emails are shown in each folder and the rest are greyed out. It no longer allows me to select mail settings and I cannot send emails. My email was still fully functional using Chrome, so I'm not sure the problem involves any changes in the Yahoo site. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there a fix?

Firefox has just started crashing on startup every time I try to open it out of the blue with no changes to anything in the browser. I've tried opening in troubleshooting mode, still crashes instantly. I've refreshed, revo uninstalled and cleaned everything firefox related off my system and reinstalled but still have the exact same issue with a fresh install.


I managed to get the crash log from the backed up folders when it reinstalled. Any suggestions?

Recently, I received a solicitation from MOZILLA to contribute with a donation. I willingly did so, since I use FIREFOX & THUNDERBIRD almost exclusively on 3 PCs daily.

 At the end of the donation screens, there is an option to contact MOZILLA either by Twitter, e-mail, or other options.  Since I do not subscribe to any of these modern social media outlets, I clicked on the E-mail option, expecting that I would get a refreshed screen so I could enter comments, etc.

Instead, when the screen refreshed, this is what I got: https://give.thunderbird.net , which ultimately led to nowhere.

 You accepted my donation gleefully, yet you continue to cloak your organization in unavailability to your subscribers.  This is not a vary fair & equitable situation.

Thank you. robert herold e-mail addresses: 17mkombi@gmail.com

First, this post is basically Congratulations for Firefox upon working almost flowlessly under this extreme heavy load without crashing. Saving/loading sessions works well. (which is unexpected but makes me _very_ happy :-)) Firefox exits properly without any exceptions, no matter how long it runs, or how many times the PC is sent to STR mode meanwhile.

Second, everything is fine, except RAM usage. No matter how many RAM is installed, Firefox takes up all of it after a few days of normal operation. I have recently upgraded my PC from 16 to 24 GB of RAM only for this sole reason to see if anything changes, but it did not produce any noticable change, except that it takes 5-7 days for Firefox to fill up all the RAM instead of the 3-4 days before. Disk space on C: drive was nullified by Firefox as the paging file went up to 50 GB.

I want to hunt down this thing. I have approx. 300 tabs, 2 addons, and Hardware Acceleration is disabled since otherwise Fox hangs several times a day (have to be killed from outside). Pics are attached. https://addons.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/addon/tree-tabs/ https://gitlab.com/kroppy/TreeTabs

I'd like to get suggestions where to start.

  1. Disabling or replacing the adblocker ?
  2. Inspecting memory usage on Process Manager (about:processes) and Task Manager (about:performance) pages ?
  3. Installing some external tools like Firemin ?

Please don't suggest neither safe mode nor disabling all addons, since that makes it impossible to reproduce this amount of load, which is the primary reason behind the symptom.

I PrtScr'ed Process Manager and Task Manager, see that RAM sizes per page are normal in Task Manager, but not in Process Manager (10 times more).

CPU usage is totally normal for this load, even when memory is in the heaven. See the TaskMan pic. (I suppose that's because of ad blocking)

Thanks for any ideas,

Explore possibilities of using System Theme 1.0 in Firefox 91.9.1esr and later.

After moving to Firefox 91.9.1esr I found problem with System theme 1.2. The color of tab add button was changed, and the button is not visible with my Windows 7 classic windows system theme. So, I'm trying to find a way to port System theme 1.0 color scheme to newer firefox versions.

Creation of a simple theme with firefox color extension works. But it is unable to recreate the effects related to active and inactive window color changes. As, I had to use bitmap to get the OS blue color transition pattern.

It seems the system theme is stored in omni.ja file. Modification of the omni.ja seems to be not a practical solution. So, it would be a better way to create an addon theme with the same code as the System Theme 1.0.

The first question is, if it will be possible to create a theme with the same code as a system theme has. Will it be able to perform the same way?

The next question is: Where the source code of the system theme is? I was unable to find it in the Firefox source. It seems, it is not stored in any obvious location.

Hi! under accounts.firefox.com/settings the language displayed is Norwegian Nynorsk even though i have set Norwegian Bokmål as my prefered language in the Firefox browser settings. I couldn't find a separate language setting on the accounts.firefox.com/settings page so im guessing this a bug/oversight/mixup when the browser attempts to look up the preferred language set in the browser?

I've attached 2 pictures showing my Firefox prefered language setting and my accounts.firefox.com/settings page.

Norwegian has two official written standards Bokmål and Nynorsk.

i hope to ask in the right way. i got a problem yesterday. Firefox stop working (when i try to go a webpage and/or open settings) nothing happened. i searched here and to be quick it was problem with VCRUNTIME140_1.dll missing. unfortunately before understanding it was enough to copy the file in the directory of Mozilla i decided to uninstall and reinstall firefox and this come the surprise: i have created my profile like for other browsers so i was thinking once re-enter in my profile theme, settings, bookmarks and passwords were restored..... and actually they are but not the actual ones... some 6-months or 1 year ago version.... WHY???

i changed a lot in this period and this is not good for me. luckily i was able to import manually bookmarks as i have backup of all my hard drive did 2 days ago but passwords, themes, settings.... how it happens? it was my mistake in something? i thought sync was useful in this scenario....now i have fear that even if i fix everything next time i will have same problem..... SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH. i hope it was clear what happened to me.

Since the last Update, my Firefox keeps crashing and needing to restore. Sometimes it can't even find my previous tabs. Is this a known issue that you're trying to solve? ( I did a full scan with Cleaner one Pro to exclude viruses etc. It came back clean.)
