How to debug FF startup, not using the profiler? After reboot, FF always takes 14 minutes to start the first time.

I run the latest Firefox (v122.0.1) on Windows 11.

Since last week, FF takes 14 minutes to start the first time after a boot. :-( Usually FF starts in ~3 seconds.

I reboot the laptop. I wait a minute. I start FF. Nothing happens for 14 minutes. Finally the browser window suddenly appear and everything is working normally. I exit FF (no remaining firefox.exe processes are running). I start FF again. Now it starts immediately as usual. :-) But: I reboot and start FF. Again, it takes 14 minutes to start. This is reproduceable every time.

I haven't tried to *solve* this by refreshing FF or simillar. Right now I'm more interested in debugging this and finding out what is wrong.

I found https://profiler.firefox.com/docs/#/./guide-startup-shutdown which states how to automatically start the profiler at startup.

12:40 I boot the computer, login and wait a minute. 12:43 I start CMD.EXE and run:

 cd c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP=1
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP_ENTRIES=20000000
 set MOZ_PROFILER_STARTUP_INTERVAL=100

12:44 I run:

 firefox.exe

No GUI appear. (it won't appear until 14 minutes later) I open the Task Manager and see one (1) firefox.exe process, taking 0% cpu. (pid 17668) 12:48 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:50 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:52 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:54 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:56 One more process running for a few seconds. Commandline is just "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", no more options. 0% CPU. 12:58 The browser GUI finally appear. Everything is now normal. It is showing one (1) tab with my start-page (google) just as it should. (my Task Manager now show 12 FF processes running, with various options) 12:59 I click the icon to stop the profiling.

I open the profile. [Profile Info] says:

 Recording started: Sat 17 Feb 2024 12:58
 Recording length: 1m12s 

So my profiling data don't show what happens between 12:44 to 12:58 :-(

Just for the sake of it, I'm attaching a pic of the first 10 seconds of the profile (at 12:58).

PS: Between 12:44 and 12:58 no FF window exists at all. Alt+Tab show no FF and in Task Manager I can't do any "Window" management, it is greyed out. I.e. no FF window exists for this process.

Question 1) What should I do to debug what happens between 12:44 and 12:58?

Question 2) How can it be that it takes 14 minutes to start FF from scratch (boot) while it starts quickly (~3 seconds) if it has been started once? I mean, all firefox.exe processes are gone when I exit FF, so starting FF again should be like starting from scratch, but apparently something is different.

Question 3) Is it normal that a FF, with only one tab (https://google.com/), run 12 processes in Task Manager?

we have query regarding Firefox application .

when we tried to install both 32bit and 64 bit Firefox application in 64 bit , one of the 32bit or 64 bit is getting removed from the machine.

we need a solution where both 32 bit and 64bit needs to be installed in a single 64 bit machine .so if want upgrade only 32bit , 32 bit should be upgraded with the newer version and 64 bit remains same with the version and 64 bit shouldn't be removed from the machine And when we tried to upgrade 64bit ,64 bit should be upgraded with the newer version and 32 bit remains same with the version and 64 bit shouldn't be removed from the machine.

I keep getting this message that pops up in a private window to restart to keep using firefox. Everytime I click restart Firefox, it closes my tabs and opens them again. However, 5 minutes later the window pops up again. Even after repeated attempts of updating, even doing a full restart on the computer, Firefox continues to send this window to me. The private window in the bar says about:restartrequired.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox with a fresh install as well as doing a Refresh of Firefox. Neither seem to solve this problem.

Whenever I try to play videos on Firefox, the elements don't load right and no video will begin. On Youtube, this is usually either a blank page with no video element, or I get an error stating that the video can't be played. On Twitch, I get the streamer's default 'not streaming' message, even if they are live, and VODs don't work. I have several extensions to protect privacy and block ads, but even if they are all turned off I still have this problem. I've also tried turning my VPN off and on, and setting it to various different locations. Nothing works. I can watch videos on another browser without issue. My extensions: Facebook Container Privacy Badger Flash Block Plus SponsorBlock Bypass Paywalls Outline AdNauseum

I posted about a month ago that I was having problems with logging on various websites with FF. A reader had me uninstall/reinstall and that fixed the issue. Now it's back again. I get error messages like "something went wrong" when trying to logon to various websites, or told to reload, but it just keeps happening. It's a bit random. No problems with Edge. I need this solved to use FF.

I've used Google Maps 3d on this machine before. I don't use it all the time. Not sure at what point it stopped working, but sometime in the last 3-6 months.

Windows 10 Pro version 22H2 Firefox version 124.0 (64-bit) Hardware Acceleration is turned ON webgl.enable-renderer-query=TRUE webgl.enable-webgl2=TRUE webGL.disable=FALSE WebGL 2 Driver Renderer=Google Inc. (Intel) -- ANGLE (Intel, Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0, D3D11-10.18.10.5059)

Google Maps shows the Global View as greyed out so I'm unable to use 3D. Did a test on https://get.webgl.org/. I see the spinning cube.

Any suggestions?

Where to write firefox autoconfg file if firefox is installed from Microsoft Store

I am using Mozilla Firefox on MS Windows 10. I want to add an autoconfig file to lock some preferences. As per this doc firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js need to be saved in the same directory where firefox is installed. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-autoconfig

I had downloaded firefox from the Microsoft store. Firefox is installed in the %programfiles%/WindowsApps folder, which is owned by 'trusted installer'. Because of this a normal user cannot write to this folder, not even with Admin access.

Is there a way to set auto config without changing folder permissions? Can I save the firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js somewhere else other than the install folder?

previously FireFox was able to login Spotify normally, and was able to post comments on Reddit, but suddenly it lost both abilities, and with the extreme lag on other sites, although still functional, i can't understand why these both sites can't be logged into, or can't post any comments in them. it has been this case for the past month. so what's going on? i'm NOT going back to Chromium based browsers ever again! i am in FireFox for a permanent replacement!

thanks in advance.

Lost my session. Not the first time, so I went to retrieve it with sessionstore.jsonlz4 Put it in the directory above the backups as usual. Not working. No matter where I put it, Firefox is not restoring my session. Tried everything I can think of, no joy. Would really like to recover my session. Has the location changed? Different file name? Firefox has done a lot of updates lately. I am on a pc operating WIndows 10.

[Lost my session because I had a private window open when I closed my regular window. FYI]

This doesn't happen every time, but certainly more frequently than it should. Is there anything that can be done about this. Is this about competing for resources. Maxing out the CPU?

Just now occurred. Firefox closed shortly after opening Chrome. No crash notification. Then, Chrome froze, with one of those "Close program or wait" messages.

I have been using Windows 10 with Firefox browser and Google/Gmail for many months. I also have been using Norton 360 and other Norton programs for many years. A few days ago, I updated Norton Utilities Ultimate and after update ran it for standard options. Before that update, I could start Google and still be signed in and start Gmail and still be signed in. Now, whenever I close Gmail or Google, I have to sign in whenever I start Google/Gmail. I tried to get help from Norton (see attached chat printout), but they said it was not a Norton problem and to contact Google. When I researched the problem with Google, it indicated that the problem was related to cookies but did not help correct it. I tried Firefox Help and could not find any useful information. I then changed to Google Chrome browser; that works and I can start and stop Google and Gmail and remain signed in. If I go back to Firefox, I still have to sign in every time I start Google. Appears to me to be Firefox or Firefox setting problem. Help!! Gordon gordonandpatti@gmail.com
