For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

I was quite unhappy with the new Firefox Proton design, so I made a CSS file and copied the following code from a website. However, I don't know what to do to (1) slightly reduce the tab height, (2) get back tab borders for inactive tabs and (3) remove the small gaps between tabs. How exactly do I have to change the following code to do so (ideally, for convenience, please just complete the code accordingly)? Thanks in advance for any support!

I cannot like or dislike comments on the fox news website like I used to. Not only that, it's as if I've never accessed that website before. Everytime I restart the browser I need to re-login to the windsor star website. This never happened before I can give details on how to replicate this problem. Otherwise I will drop this browser, bcause I can't get any help. Already tried all troubleshooting steps. I also disabled my internet security. I need help!! Please. None of my settings have been changed, all I did was update FF.

After years of use, my PaneraBread.com account sign in page no longer works with Firefox. What has changed? Panera's IT folks spent a lot of time with me but nothing worked. They finally suggested using a different browser. MS Edge works with the same account ID and password. Why? Is there a workaround for Firefox? I am using a HP desktop and Windows 10 with all the updates.

I can find no recent documentation on command line options for the Firefox Browser. All of the information on this appears to be out of date or just does not work any more (in the latest version June 2021). Is there any documentation on this anywhere that is correct for the current version of the browser? I am specifically trying to run firefox with command line options on Windows 10 but I do not see that that should make any difference. The only option I can get to work is starting firefox with a specific URL; even then I have to change the browser settings to get that to open a new window; because the browser settings override the command line option -new-window

I had the Firefox menubar/tabs set to be the same as my Win 10 system's theme color (Settings > Personalization > Colors), the same as the color of the taskbar. When Firefox v. 92.0 self-installed on Sept 7, 2020, the menubar/tabs color reverted to Firefox's default, a dull gray.

System Theme in Add-ons Manager > Themes is still enabled.

How do I get Firefox to partake of the Windows system theme again?

This has happened before when Firefox updated, although it doesn't happen EVERY time. The last time it happened, I recall being able to find a simple about:config adjustment on Google (not on this site), but I can't find it now. (As I recall, it was an about:config item that didn't sound like it would affect the menubar color, but it did.)

I have another laptop on which I rushed to disable automatic updates, so Firefox on that laptop still shows the system color. Is there a file in the Profiles folder I could copy into the problem computer that would restore the theme color setting?

Thanks.

First of all, let me thank you for making Firefox desktop aware in Linux Mint Cinnamon. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  !!! To have the tabs reload on the last desktop is wonderful. I used to have to re-arrange the tabs every reload. However, the performance behavior has changed since using Linux Mint 18. I just upgraded with a fresh install of Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon, firefox 92 64bit Firefox for Linux Mint -1.0 I have about 10 tabs across 3 desktops. When I exit and restart the session, the tabs get recreated and start loading. But the Linux GUI generally grinds to a halt. I thought that firefox was locked up. However recently I just let it sit and eventually apparently the tabs loaded and the machine was normal again. So something is a bit off in the priorities of threads? I can only guess...

I have been a problem with Firefox not loading images from one specific site. Here is an example: https://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_mcdetail.aspx?Id=65966. When I click on the 'View the record image' link at the top of the page, I get no image. I have tried numerous settings and nothing works. Images display fine using MS Edge but I prefer Firefox if I can get it to work. Firefox used to work just fine. I have even created new user profiles numerous times. When a new user profile is created, the images load and display correctly. However, just about any change to the default profile causes the images to fail to load. Even something as simple as changing the home page causes the failure to load when absolutely nothing else has been changed in the default user profile. Any suggestions??

For about a month, google products on firefox randomly stop working.

- I get the "Oops...error #001" in gmail, when i reload it just continues to get an error cycle until eventually it goes to network protocol error.

- Google search randomly does not work at all in the url/search bar, and once it doesn't work the tab is useless. Putting in another URL and hitting enter it appears to have loaded but of course nothing has changed.

- I have no extensions installed.

I'm able to reproduce in safe mode, but FF doesn't want to crash so no report.

I’ve been having frequent crashes lately. I’ve already tried pretty much every troubleshooting step that Firefox recommends, and I tried them all multiple times. I also tried a few troubleshooting steps related to OS and hardware. I definitely could try a few more OS/hardware specific troubleshooting steps but I’m hesitant to waste time doing that considering I don’t really have any confidence that the problem is due to OS/hardware issues.

I feel like the only hope for a solution is to discover some relevant information within my Firefox crash reports. I’m not sure how difficult it would be and what the likelihood is of finding a solution via analyzing the crash reports, but I’d greatly appreciate it if anybody could take a quick look.

Please note that the crashes almost always happen when clicking on a link or button, not just on its own. Also, the issue could be related to a separate bug that’s been here ever since I started using Firefox about a year ago. The other issue I’m referring to here is when Firefox attempts to open a pop-up (such as the one that appears when clicking the “hamburger” icon in the toolbar), the pop-up itself “crashes” several times before being able to open it.

Here is the full list of the troubleshooting steps I already tried:

  • Firefox refresh
  • Firefox troubleshoot mode
  • cleared cache and cookies
  • restarted my computer
  • Firefox reinstall
  • Created a new user profile
  • Was already on the latest version of Firefox (this is actually when the issue started to happen, when I upgraded to the latest version, I never had any crashes before this update)
  • I know this doesn't really prove anything but I tested Google Chrome once the Firefox crashing issue developed and Chrome has not crashed once since the Firefox crashing issue developed (even after extended use)
  • Upgraded Mac OS (upgraded to latest version of Catalina, not Big Sur, because my Mac is not eligible for Big Sur)
  • Apple diagnostics hardware test (no issues found)
  • Malwarebytes scan (no issues found)
  • Mac OS safe mode (crashes were not happening for the time I was in safe mode, but I was not able to stay in in safe mode long enough in order to determine if the issue was truly gone)

Crash ID: bp-3bdd1c25-2453-4549-aa3b-df7070210906

Thank you for any help in advance.

My youtube downloader addon suddenly disappeared. The little icon under the youtube video doesn't show any more. Used to work well. then suddenly didn't. In fact I had one tab open at a youtube vid and the downloader icon was there and working and at the same time I opened another tab by 'right click' and 'open in new tab' from the youtube list - to another youtube vid - and on that tab, that page, the downloader icon didn't show. And now I can't ever open a page where it'll show. So I installed a couple more downloader addons and they don't work either.

I've check all of them in addon manager and they all appear okay, enabled, enabled in private windows, all okay.

Anyone know anything about it?

Doing a search for this change provides hundreds of topics and thousands of folks complaining about the added spaces between menu items and no real solution. I found one that entails making changes to the chrome file and proton, I tried this and it doesn't work for me and I shouldn't have to make changes to files in the first place. If anyone from the development team is listening, I know you had to satisfy those using touch screens, but how about making it easy for us to change the spacing a bit tighter. Many of us have lots of bookmarks and find we now have to scroll to find the ones at the bottom, then go to the top again to select "open in......". Could you add a simple toggle, "wide menu spacing or close menu spacing"? Anything that worked on version 89 or 90, does not work now. Please, this really is frustrating

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

In previous versions of Firefox I was able to save items in local storage in one HTML file and read them back in another HTML file when both files were loaded from the same file system directory of the local machine.

Version 92 seems to have implemented a breaking change where separate local storage tables are created for pages loaded from the file system based on their file path - meaning a page can only access local storage items set from the same window location used to open the file from disk

As far as I can tell the change has not been mentioned in release notes , nor does it appear to be part of a bug or enhancement request filed on Bugzilla (that I was able to find in searching), nor are local page names entered as "sites" to allow management of their storage under security and privacy settings.

I have a workaround for my particular needs - rename a local system main page to something else, rename a setup page to the main page, make setup changes and store them from within the renamed setup page, then undo the file renames so the main page can load updated setup data, but t qhe phrase "ugly hack" comes to mind.

Before launching on a major rewrite in search of a better solution, or helping friends set up a node/express server on their devices, is there any way to re-enable sharing of local storage between HTML pages loaded from the file system?
