This has been an ongoing issue for a long time now, as long as I can remember. I click to open FF from my desktop, it opens fast, but hangs for anywhere from 4 to 8 seconds upon initial load before it even attempts to connect to my set homepage, which is www.google.com (I've tried other variations too, google.ca, google.com/ncr etc etc).

I've tried clearing my cache, completely reinstalling FF, safemode, disabling themes, disabling addons and re-enabling addons, with no luck, the same HANG persists.

Shouldn't FF load just fine and then immediately try connecting to my homepage? What's with this "Connecting..." every time I initially load the program?

I'm completely stumped here, I've tried everything,,,,, Something is causing firefox to delay at startup or it's hanging for no reason too long because it thinks the program hasn't loaded fully yet, but it has. Some sort of timing issue or something.

Please view the attached screenshot jpg file I've included with this post to see exactly what I see everytime I load FF for the first 4 to 8 seconds. I know computers and the inner workings of things and how to use about:config etc etc, so I'll be able to follow even the most difficult of directions if you have a solution. Thankyou ahead of time for reading this post, I look forward to your reply!

Whenever I try to upload a picture or anything it hangs the entire browser, can't access any website. Other browsers do not do the same like Google Chrome. I have to keep closing my browser down and restarting it and then I am able to browse as normal but whenever I try to upload something it just hangs.

Also, FireFox is so much slower these days I have to revert to Chrome, such as YouTube page loads slower, videos sometimes stutter when skipping. It doesn't do this in Chrome so it's not my connection.

Cannot access Bookmarks; FireFox hangs indefinitely

I have been using Firefox for years on two separate Windows PC's. Over the past 2-3 weeks, I have noticed that FF stops responding the moment that I click on 'Bookmarks' on the menu bar. I then have to close FF via the task manager. I can no longer access any of my bookmarks. I am running FF 62.0 on both computers. Computer specs are as follows:

Laptop: - 1 x Windows 7 64-bit - Intel i5 6300 @ 2.4GHZ - 8GB RAM

Desktop: - 1 x Windows 10 64-bit - Intel i7 4770 @ 3.4GHZ - 16GB RAM

I have tried virtually all of the recommended solutions on-line including: 1) resetting FF, 2) reinstalling FF and 3) Starting FF in Safe Mode. Nothing is helping with the problem outlined above. This is confusing in that FF has been my main and default browser for years and I have never experienced any problems.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I definitely do not want to switch to a new browser.

Repeated 'running but is not responding' and 'profile missing' dialogue boxes despite following guidance to solve problem.

I’m experiencing a repeated problem with Firefox. It hangs after closing. The following happens:

1. ‘Close Firefox’ dialogue box opens, reading: ‘Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.’

I click ‘Close Firefox’. The the following happens:

2. ‘Profile Missing’ dialogue box opens, reading: ‘Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible’

The above process repeats, even if I create and use a new profile. I cannot close Firefox completely, in Task Manager. Always at least one Firefox remains open as a Background Process. When my laptop is shut down/restarted, Firefox will open once but pages load very slowly, if at all, even in a new profile. Once Firefox is closed (even using ‘Exit’, through the menu), the process repeats. It also takes many attempts to load Firefox Profile Manager.

I am using the most up-to-date Firefox on Windows 8.1.

Steps I have tried: Closing Firefox in Task Manager/Ending Firefox Processes. Restarting computer. Clearing cookies and cache. Restarting Firefox in Safe Mode. Uninstalling and reinstalling. Refreshing Firefox (keeping bookmarks, etc). Creating a new profile. Renaming profiles.ini folder (profilesOLD.ini). Scanned for malware (with Malware Bytes).

Threads that I’ve looked at on support.mozilla.org: Troubleshoot and diagnose Firefox problems Firefox hangs or is not responding - Firefox hangs when you quit it Refresh Firefox – reset add-ons and settings “Firefox is already running but is not responding” error message – How to fix it Support Forum - Task manager won’t close firefox already running but not responding Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox Profiles How to run Firefox when your profile is missing or inaccessible

So far, nothing has resolved the issue, after hours spent trying. Please can someone offer a possible solution?

Thank you.

Since the latest updates, I now am experiencing lockup issues when accessing secure sites which I previously was able to load. Firefox shows it is busy but totally locks up and I have to use task Manager to force Firefox to close. Typically occurring during the login or verification when entering the sites.

I have used Firefox since its creation and this is the first time I have had issues of this nature. It is my default browser.

firefox inresponsive after dragging link to file browser

hello, i have an exotic, but easily reproducable hang-up (no crash, process and window still exist, but UI gets inresponsive, also the close-window-x in top right window corner stops working and active downloads don't continue) when dragging a link from firefox 74.0 (64-bit) on windows 10 to my favourite file browser "total commander". i use this link dragging almost everyday, dragging the lock symbol from the url entry line to a folder in my file browser. this always worked and stopped since updating firefox to 74.0.

now the really weird stuff: when i drag the link to a explorer window (i mean the windows file browser), it works. when i drag a link first to explorer and then the same link from firefox to total commander it works. when i drag a link that i never dragged to explorer to total commander, firefox UI becomes inresponsive, downloads hang, i can't change tabs or even click the close-windows-x. i can only quit firefox by right-clicking its icon in the windows task bar and select quit firefox there. even more interesting: when firefox is then quit, the .url file has been successfully created in the folder where i dragged it. also on resuming firefox, all tabs are successfully restored to where i just left it.

summary: my work flow: i drag a link using the lock icon in firefox to my file browser to store the url in a ".url" file. explorer works. total command not. this bug probably got introduced in firefox 74 (i didn't update total commander recently).

i hope you can reproduce this bug (total commander is free for testing at https://www.ghisler.com/index.htm ). it might not hit many users, but it hits me several times per day.
