I'm running Firefox 116.0.2 on Xubuntu 20.04.6. A day ago, it started loading at startup for no apparent reason. I don't want it to that. It's not my default browser, and it is not selected as such. It is not listed in any startup folders or in application autostart in system settings. I tried the winregister and auto update fixes using about:config, and no joy.

Does anyone have any suggestions? It's past annoying.

I asked this question about 115.4.1 and was told to try in safe mode. However I cannot connect to my mail servers of which I have 2 and Gmail when in safe mode. Please look into the resource handling problem with the new Thunderbird under Win10.

1) Whenever I open Thunderbird the Gmail messages apparently get refreshed taking several minutes. I have cleaned up that inbox and limited to 366 days of mail.

2) I spent hours moving mail from past year from my other accounts into local storage. You no longer can scroll and block select more than about 20-30 messages at a time regardless of the background activity 1) above. The program requires you to repeatedly release shift key to grab more than a few messages. If you are able to grab say 1000 messages, and try to move them, the system chokes and does not respond.

3) Any background activity impedes the ability to scroll the inbox.

The new versions are crippled in some way as far as resources. The older version was more tolerant.

Please listen to complaints. Putting in safe mode I cannot troubleshoot. It is also very difficult in Win10 to follow instructions to safe mode unlike previous OS.

I am currently fresh on Fedora 38 and Firefox 115 with multimedia codecs installed such as ffmpeg. I have problems playing videos on Facebook or Twitch, like in myday stories, reels, and feed. But in YouTube, videos plays perfectly so I think there is a bug going on here? I already tested turning hardware acceleration on and off but no avail.

I got sick of Winblows and it's been awhile since I ran Linux so I am now on my third flavour in about 2 months - Manjaro, Debian Bullseye [Mate] and my current daily driver Kubuntu. I think Kubuntu is a keeper (until I re-familiarise myself with the Linux OS - maybe a year or two) but still testing.

My issue is that on everyone of the 3 flavours I have tried Firefox is the main browser by default and I use it as my default on Winblows also for about 25 years or so in it's various incarnations (IE Netscape)

My issue with this is Firefox on Winblows rarely if ever crashes ()I can't recall the last time Firefox on Winblows crashed it was that long ago) but on Linux this is a completely different story.

ON Manjaro it crash 4-10 times randomly per hour. ON Mate it as fairly stable but still crashed 4-10 times per evening session (usually 5PM to about 11 or 12 PM) On Kubuntu it as unstable at first but then I got some updates and thing became stable for about a week or so - and by stable I mean 1-2 crashes every few days - so not stable but stabler. I just installed the nvidia driver version 515.x.x for my Nvidia 1070 and immediately after the reboot Firefox started crashing on every single tab I opened. I would re-open it and 10-30 seconds later it crashes again.

After 5 minutes or os of crashing a firefox update magically appeared to upgrade to version 106.x.x. and so I took it thinking it might make things better. It did not make things better. It made things MUCH worse, now it crashes everytime I try to open it.

I ALWAYS have at least 2 browsers installed just because of BS like this. I opened up Vivaldi 5.5.2805.42 and it opened, did not crash and is still open. I am tying this post for help using it.

Firefox extensions installed : ublock, newtab URL redirector,WebRTC(permanently disables WEbRTC and = keeps it disabled through updates, download helper and that's it.

Vivaldi extensions installed: uBlock, download helper - vivaldi doesn't need a new tab URL redirector because it has a configuration for newtab URL - as all browsers should (hear me Mozilla!), doesn't need WebRTC as it also has a configuration for this to turn it on or off and upgrading Vivaldi retains all config settings always and everytime I use it and update it - which admittedly is not nearly as much as Firefox and I am going to keep an eye on that one configuration for sure.

I want to use firefox, I really do, I love it - even through all the changes over the past few years I still love it -even though I HATE some of the changes. That being said it needs to be stable on my OS of choice.

I donate to the Mozilla foundation because I like their efforts on net neutrality and privacy. I also donate to varios net neutrality and privacy orgs such as the EFF and openmedia to mention 2 more. I am going to try to downgrade my firefox version because in my short Linux experience that usually does the trick. However the minute I decide Firefox is not stable enough on linux and swap out to Vivaldi instead my donation money goes from Mozilla foundation to the Vivaldi developers. NOW thats not a threat, I am sure the Mozilla foundation wont miss my $60.00 yearly but, it can;t just be me thats disappointed with Firefox on Linux and in fact google searches shwo me it is not.

Are politics more important than the MAIN PRODUCT of the Mozilla foundation? If not you gotta show Firefox on Linux some more loving because there are millions of firefox users round the world who are disappointed by my basic non-scientific search results and reasoning - which cannot be far off.

I mean - it won't even start and it constantly crashes when it does start.

Your new update, like your last several suck. It is sssllllooowww to load most webbsites. Watching a video is frustrating, pausing every few secons. I am SICK OF EATCHING THAT WHEEL GO ROUND AND ROUND. What is most frustrating is your damned "Update" looser, piggy-backed of of a windows update. I DID NOT want an update, because you idiots cant create a update that doesnt screw up every aspect of peoples browsing or interne5 experience. To m,ake it worse, you cowards hide. There is no way to contact a HUMAN, your help is a bunch of questions that are never answered by [redacted]. Since nobody can write a workable update, Get a job at a fast food joint, and hire people who give a damn, an can actually write something that [redacted] WORKS!!!!!!! I'm on my second ay trying to un-[redacted] your mess. How about sending me an email with a contact to a human with a functional brain. People should NOT have to spendd ays fixing an update that is worse than a virus.

First, I tried to install via the web download from mozilla.org. That led to the wont-start-up problem. Then I reinstalled and reset my computer, and had the same problem. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled via the microsoft store, and that worked fine, and got my browser set up. That was all yesterday. Today, I tried to open firefox, and it once again wouldn't start. I'm pretty sure I shut down my computer overnight between yesterday and today. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled via the microsoft store. Here's the *really* weird part: today, when trying to launch firefox, windows will instead open a different program, seemingly at random. When launching firefox, it has instead launched:

  • Audacity
  • Some AMD software thing
  • Calculator
  • Microsoft office

It won't open even if I try to open it in troubleshoot mode. I tried to find the crash logs file in my system that some support article recommended I find, and windows couldn't find that file. No error message or dialogue box appears when firefox crashes on start. I'm running windows 11 on an amd gpu and cpu. Help me not use google anymore!

Firefox 117.0 Windows 10

When using Google search the screen locks and the cpu goes high. After approx 45 seconds the results are displayed. This does not happen using DuckDuckGo as the search engine. Google search is fine in Pale Moon and Edge. I have attached screen prints of the Firefox screen (the connection circle is constantly rotating during the 45 seconds) and a screen shot of Task Manager. This has only started happening since updating to 117 yesterday.

Thank you

I'm using Chrome to send this because I'm thinking I have a virus of some sort, but when I run scanners, my computer comes up clean. I prefer Firefox over Chrome, so hope to resolve this issue. The icon I'm concerning with is on the right side in the middle. Is is mainly blue with an X on the top left corner. Inside the box, is says Log In with an arrow. I can click on the X and the icon will go away. But when using Temu or eBay, it'll come back. It doesn't seem to come up on any pages not selling something. I contacted eBay and they state it is not theirs and to contact Mozilla Firefox. This is probably not a coincidence, but I just had my eBay account hacked into and had to change my password. Ideas??

Hi, Various Sites (sometimes firefox as a whole) keep crashing regularly. I am running Arch Linux (6.4.12, default kernel) with Hyprland WM on an old i7-7700K with a Nvidia GTX980TI. Apart from Firefox the system runs stable. When doing research, or just browsing text based sites, firefox is also very stable, but on some sites like twitch, youtube, or idle games like "Antimatter Dimensions" (ivark.github.io) the browser (or page) crashes regularly. It also happens in Troubleshoot mode, also after a clean re-install (including deleting /.mozilla in /home) and since various versions over the last couple of month. The latest crash report ID is bp-67ed2673-4ed2-452b-bc63-dc1060230831. I know I'm running a niche system, but I really like my setup and apart from those crashes it's amazing, so I hope you can help and point me in the right direction as to what could cause the crashes. Thanks for your time. KR, rehajel

Today, web pages started showing small numbered boxes behind each element on a webpage. As you move down the page, the numbers are in sequence. I tried the font settings. They are all set at what they should be. I also tried the config settings, no joy. If I restart in troubleshooting mode, the boxes go away. Note: I am using Linux Mint, and Firefox just updated yesterday to V103.0.2. Any help would be appreciated.

Since the OS upgrade, any portal that I open (especially the ones that I have my user id and password saved) crashes. One crash report can be found at https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/7d671357-2d98-4bbc-b177-4029e0221221

I have tried disabling add-ons/ exensions, disabling auto-fill, downgrading security, reinstalling (even the ESR edition), deleting Firefox files from the library/application_support - but it doesn't simply work. Not sure if this is an OS issue.

Any ideas would really help. Getting the below info on the about:crashes each time:

Firefox 100 and OWA Drag and Drop Problem

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

-Chris

Hi, just as title describes, I'm unable to launch Firefox on my computer right now. I think the app MIGHT have automatically updated itself while I left it open overnight, but I'm not sure. All I know is, I'm unable to launch it after it crashed itself while I wasn't looking, and I don't want to factory-reset it because I have a ton of pages open and don't want to have to reopen them. What do I do?

Crash ID: bp-072b8eec-9024-4c7e-9723-ba6c20221008

(If there's any other information on my computer that I can go fetch to solve the issue, I can do so easily, just tell me)

So, my browser is disabled. I can open it, but if I type anything in the adress bar (the home menu with recomendations and the search tab doesn't pop up) it will process the information, but then stop and gives me a blank screen. I send an image of it. For example if I type https://www.google.com the tab will go white and I can't do anything about it. In the apliccation menu, the only thing I can do is to go into troobleshooting mode by clicking the Help tab. Everything else (except for the new tab or window tool) is disabled. I beleive it is coused by the fact I can't open any website and those tabs are links. Please write back.

On my computer, I run Mageia Cauldron with a GNOME environment. After a recent update of my system, both Firefox and Thunderbird have stopped working. They crash constantly when I try to launch either of them. In both cases, when I try to launch them from the command line, I get the following message: ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment. ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment. Segmentation fault (core dumped)

For basic info, my system is: OS: Linux Mageia Cauldron Environment: GNOME Shell 43.1 Display server: X11 Kernel: 6.1.8-desktop-1.mga9 x86_64 Firefox: 102.7.0esr Thunderbird: 102.6.1

Looking around, it seems to be a bug with Firefox and Thunderbird, but besides waiting for a new update that might fix itself, I wonder if there is something I can do to make them work now.

Thank you.
