Hello,

I've spent several hours today trying to fix FireFox slow start up on my system. After start up (about 2 full minutes), everything works normally. The hardware is an ASUS A88xm-A MB, A10-6800K processor, 16G DDR3, runs OS and programs off an SSD. I worked through all the slow startup suggestions, ran memtest (0 Errors, 1 Pass), disabled all add ons, (even the OpenH264 video codec (I use the onboard HDMI, no graphics card)), turned off hardware acceleration, etc. When starting in troubleshoot mode, less than 30 seconds, (acceptable), but I really don't know where to begin with the "More Troubleshooting Information" when I look at the table generated by it. There have been no other problems to date with the system, and the long start-up time began with 20.04 Ubuntu (about a minute), then got worse when I upgraded to 22.04 to try to solve THAT problem. Currently running FF 104.0, and the update page says wait for a distro update if that is how it was installed. I believe 104.0 is the latest Linux 64b version though. All updates to the system are done as soon as I'm notified of them. there have been none since the upgrade a few days ago.

Any suggestions? Gotta get some sleep now... TIA, Dave

Hello all,

For some reason, I can no longer upload or download files, with the pop-up window failing to appear entirely. I can upload folders through, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, but individual files don't work.

I've reset my browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it, opened it in troubleshooting mode, disabled enhanced tracking protection, but nothing seemed to work. I've tested another browser, and I was able to upload and download files just fine.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 using Firefox 107.0.1.

Lately I've noticed that I cannot log on to the Xfinity.com website. The home page displays and the login screen allows entry of login ID, but then the screen blacks out and shows only 3 dots that move slightly to show something is happening. Eventually, the site times out and goes back to the login screen.

This happens on my laptop. It is running Firefox version 86 under Ubuntu Linux. I have tried this on another computer running Windows 10 and get the same result, unless I use Microsoft's browser. Firefox loads the Xfinity site correctly on my Android phone, version 86.1.1

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Bill

This problem has been around since the latest version of the old version, and has carried across into the new version. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work with Google Translate on linux. I have tested in other browsers and it they all work fine. Firefox on Windows also works fine, this problem seems specific to linux.

When you press any of the Ctrl combinations it simply deselects everything and moves the cursor to the end of the text. Mouse works, but it's not practical if you are cutting and pasting all day long.

Site: https://translate.google.com Firefox version: 89.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 20.04

Google Translation is critical to my work so my current solution is I no longer use Firefox. I hope that someone knows of a quick fix, or if it's a bug it's easy to fix as I'd hate to permanently move away from Firefox for something like this.

Thanks!

Hello everyone, i'm currently on ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, and pretty frequently 1/2 times a day, when I'm on youtube, the browser just starts messing up completely the audio. It is delayed by at least 2 or 3 second, and it is all confused by a really awful interference noise. The problem goes on if i don't restart my browser, or sometimes even my pc. I tried disabling hardware acceleration but it doesn't work

Problem appeared in the last few days so I assume it is due to the recent update - 91.0.2

Clicking the Menu button (3 bars), the button goes grey but the application menu does not appear. If I move the mouse around, I see flashes of the menu but that's all. A graphics problem?

I have also found that copying and pasting is inconsistent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it flashes. No problem in Thunderbird or other applications.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox - no difference I have tried Firefox in Safe Mode - no difference

When video/audio starts playing on a browser, the tab title displays 'playing' text. This additional line resizes the window height and causes the tab content to resize too. For example youtube starts resizing video window height and width - and this is very annoying. How do I remove 'playing' text from tab FOREVER?

This question was asked 6 months ago and I have the same problem.

Running Ubuntu Mate 21.04 (metacity), FF 91.0.2 (64-bit). I have it set up with two different profiles, with separate menu entries for each using "firefox -P [PROFILE NAME] -no-remote %u". One of them is set to always use private browsing mode and I use that profile as my default app in mate.

If if set chrome as my default browser, I can open links from other apps without a problem regardless of chrome being already running or not.

When I set FF as default, whenever it is already open and I try to open a link, I get a "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile." error.

I've seen some comments about similar issues with wayland and tried setting MOZ_DBUS_REMOTE and even MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND to 1.

Can you help me?

Firefox is taking over my RAM

What is going on with Firefox on Linux? It's been my favorite browser for years and I want to stick with it, but it becomes unusable.

I've got 32GB of RAM, so I should theoretically be able to open quite a few tabs (which I need as a web developer), but when I have about 15 tabs open, it consumes about 1GB of ram per tab. Usually I have some webmail tabs open, google drive, youtube, some documentation and references, github, example sites... you know, the usuall stuff you find in a web dev's browser.

I'm running the latest updates on Ubuntu 20.04 and have the latest Firefox installed. On my Windows (dual-boot so the same computer, but windoze is more for gaming than for work), I can open 50 tabs and have no memory issues at all. I'm syncing my extensions so it's the exact same configuration, yet on Linux it's huge a pain in the behind to keep using it.

Are there any fixes for this? I've seen other complain about similar issues for previous versions of Firefox and other Linux distros, I've ran through all the self help suggestions and nothing helps.

I'm running Linux Ubuntu 20.4

Whenever I try to use a website that has a browse button (e.g. youtube uploader, google drive, etc) I click it but nothing happens, no file browser comes up.

As per previous discussions on this issue, I have tried Safe mode, refresh (in fact total new operating system and re-install of firefox) and disabling hardware acceleration, even turning off popup blocker and none of these have made any difference.

Hello,

what can i do when i get a message "Sorry. We just need to do one small thing to keep going." with <Restart Firefox> or "Gah. Your tab just crashed." all the time i open firefox? A restart with Add-Ons disabled does not help. I send the troubleshooting information from Help/Troubleshooting information. As one can see Firefox does not seem to produce crash reports either.

Where Does Firefox Store Locations of Used Websites?

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.

Hi there,

I'm using my PC for local web development. I use Firefox as my regular browser and recently, in order to distinguish between personal time and development time, I've established a new profile just for development purposes.

The local website I can't reach is "site.local.dev". My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 and that URL points to a local IP on my network (resolved via /etc/hosts file on my PC).

Funny thing is that: - In dev-profile: site.local.dev does not work => "Unable to connect" and the URL bar shows https://site.local.dev even if I force it to http:// - In personal-profile: site.local.dev does work :P

I have tried with CLI tools like "wget", "hosts", "ping", "telnet" and so on and the site loads ok. Even I have used Dillo (damn simple web browser) and the site loads ok also.

Things I've tried so far: - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327 (similar issue, not exactly the same).

It must be a silly thing but I'm out of options now. Perhaps anybody has faced to this situation in the past: any suggestion on this issue?.

Thanks in advance, Ibon.

I have been having problems accessing part of a membership site. Can't get past the first step, it doesn't work for me.

Kubuntu 20.04.4 LTS Release: 20.04 Codename: focal Firefox Version 98.0 (64 bit)

Have been informed from the website owner that the IT person has tested this with Explorer, Safari and Chrome, and all work. The IT support person then goes on to state - "....... that the client needs to use a different browser as Firefox is very outdated."

So, I was using the latest version and it is "very outdated"  ???

How can I respond ? Is there a training course for the IT person to deepen their skill level ?
