I have updated my O/S from Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.10. Nothing else. Now Firefox is nearly useless

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

How do I completely remove all traces of Firefox from my windows 10 OS? Note: This is why, After windows ask me to run your application or program or software, and I click the yes button after I had done that it doesn't do anything after that and then it just repeatedly does this, and I had used windows uninstall program and I uninstall Firefox then I had reinstall it and it still did the same exact thing that I had mentioned above "even tried using the Windows Registry Editor too!"

Note for years I had used your browser and hardly had any troubles with or problems with your browser

Following the update to version 83, my CAC reader stopped working and I am now unable to access DOD Outlook Web Access e-mail. The error message is: ERR_BAD_SSL_CLIENT_AUTH_CERT.

Thanks much.

I have a customer who is unable to browse to any websites after version 81.0.2 was installed. They are also unable to open Options and other Menu items. Only Toolbar Menu item that worked was Help > About. I have tried using Firefox in Safe Mode, I have refreshed Firefox, and I have renamed the AppData > Roaming > Mozilla folder forcing it to create a brand new user profile. The only security programs running are Windows Defender. Chrome and Edge work fine, so customer will use one of those until Firefox is fixed.

Hi! Since about two month I have the problem, that firefox does not update automatically anymore. Every time a new version is available I get the message "Firefox can't update to the latest version" and I have to do full download. Searching the forum did not help solving the problem. Is there any way to determine what is preventing firefox from updating? Cheers Christian

I am attempting to reinstall firefox. Old one screwed up and I eventually uninstalled it. Ran revo uninstaller, turned off firewall and antivirus, wifi connected. Started Firefox Installer as Administrator. Firefox Installer window appears on Desktop. The interior of the window is completely blank, all white. Wait. Nothing happens. Click on it, get Not Responding message at top of window. As far as I can tell the Installer did nothing but open the window. Repeat downloads of the Installer did the same thing. Help?

I had most updated versions of Mozilla Firefox in my windows 10 machine. last two days, it is not opening. Tried several recommendations from Community page, Help documents and youtube solutions but nothing seems to be working.

  • Tried re-installing firefox, by downloading the latest version from Mozilla, after deleting the profile folder (%APPDATA%)
  • Tried removing the cache files / temp files etc., and restarted as well, still did not work.

I do not have admin permission hence could not open in windows safe mode.

Any suggestion please?, Appreciate your input!

10/20/20

I clicked on the update button last night - running 81.0, and the update was for 81.0.2. When I went to open the browser all that I got was a line at the top - FF would not open. I backed up the profile, and did a clean install. When I finally got the backed up profile installed, it opened properly once and everything was there. When I opened it again, no book marks, and none of the buttons worked. FF didn't close properly, and I had to use Task Manager to shut down.

I ended up downloading the beta version, and it's worked just fine. The original profile works, so all bookmarks are there.

I see that FF released 82.0 this morning. Is it safe to try to install it, or is the beta version that I installed last night really 82, just hours before it was officially released?

Am trying to take an online assessment for a job. I’m getting - Error: Firefox can not see the cpu or ram on this PC. I’m running win 10 64bit and have the latest version of Firefox installed. I’ve turned off thumbprints, added the site as a trusted site and pretty much killed all security for this site. How can I let FF see the cpu/ram?

Hello! I've been using Firefox for years now, and just recently set up a dual boot system with win10 and kubuntu. I've never had this problem with Firefox before, and it's only a problem on win10. When I open Firefox, there's only blank white where a page would normally be. Trying to right click brings up nothing. I can open the menu, but things like options, add-ons, customize, etc. all do absolutely nothing when I click on them. When I click on the icons of my extensions in the upper bar, the extension interface is empty as well. Nothing changes when I try to load a page--Using the search bar causes a spike in my otherwise flat ethernet usage (I dont have any other processes running that use it while im testing this, but just to cover my bases I can access the internet without any issues on discord or other online applications.) The search bar does retain what I searched. Rather than becoming about:blank, it just becomes, for example, "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=test" Other browsers work completely fine. I've tried doing a completely clean reinstall (deleting files in ProgramFiles, %appdata%, the Old Files folder that is created during an uninstall, and uninstalling using the apps and features menu.), using DISM to check for anything wrong in sys32, opening Firefox in safe mode, opening it as an administrator, disabling any firewall or antivirus i can find, and deleting my Firefox profiles. Nothing has changed anything at all. Please help! <3

Microsoft/Windows 10 has removed Firefox from their list of potential default browsers. Most information answering "how to make Firefox my default browser" is out of date as the information says to go to where Microsoft Edge is noted as the Windows 10 system's choice of default browser, then to click on that and choose Firefox from the choice dialog box. Sadly Firefox is no longer in that choice dialog box. Please advise, thanks.

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.
