For the past few days, Firefox has been extremely slow to load pages at startup. The browser itself launches pretty much instantly, but it's taking over six minutes after that just to look up domains. At some point it gets past whatever hiccup is holding things up and browsing works for the rest of the session -- noticeably slower than usual, but usable.

It happens with add-ons disabled, after multiple refreshes, and even after a full reinstall (with new profile). I've played with all the common suspects -- disabling accessibility options, hardware acceleration, IPv6, etc. I closed my pinned tabs and disabled auto-restoring the previous session. I even disabled Avast and MalwareBytes. Nothing has helped so far (which is seriously disappointing, considering the 6-minute restart between each change!)

The odd thing is that there are a few seconds, immediately after startup, where things seem to work normally. If I'm quick, I can sometimes get most of one webpage to load before the problem begins.

I've been a Firefox power user since version 0.6.2 and never encountered anything like this. I'm very comfortable with changing settings, configuration files, etc., and am willing to try just about anything to get things cranking again. But right now I'm simply out of other ideas to try.

Using 61.0.2, 64-bit version on fully-patched Windows 10 on a very fast fiber connection. <edit> I also tried the 32-bit version; no joy. </edit>

Hello,


While trying to watch "big" mp4 files, I get the error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.


Smaller files seem to work fine. The problem seem to start around 3-4 GB.


Things I tried:

- Safe mode

- Refresh firefox

- Completely wipe and reinstall, the problem remains.


Since I was due for an OS upgrade, I upgraded to High Sierra. Fresh install (wiped the disk), fresh Firefox install, and the problem remains.

Chrome will load it up after 2-3 seconds. Safari gives the same error.

The file also works in all the players I tried: VLC 1.x, VLC 2.x, VLC 3.x, MPV, MplayerX.

So to recap: Fresh High Sierra install, fresh Firefox install (without sync - no addons), unable to read MP4 files bigger than 3-4 GB.

Help?

I was trying to follow these instructions: https://help.twitter.com/en/managing-your-account/link-twitter-to-facebook. After disabling UBlock and changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only, while I no longer see the error: "Failed to load the Facebook SDK. Please make sure you are not blocking connect.facebook.net." However, I still get this message next to the Facebook icon: "Having trouble? Learn more." (Link for Learn more text: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31113.) Refreshing the page changes nothing. This thread didn't help: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1130053. privacy.trackingprotection.enabled was already on false (at least after changing Tracking Protection to be enabled for Private Tabs only).

Hello, I am unable to download files from Google Drive. On clicking the download button for a file or right-clicking a file and select the download option, a new blank page opens in the same tab and no popup window appears to save the file or view it.

Actually I did a little bit of a research and tried downloading different types of files and there I noticed this strange thing - 1. Whenever I try to download a file that was uploaded to the drive at some time, it is not downloading and instead a blank page opens and no download popup window appears. 2. Well, here is the strange part: When I tried downloading a file that was created using Google services (say Google docs), and not uploaded, the download popup window appears without opening a blank page. In this case, the file is downloading.

On the other hand when I tried downloading the files from Google Drive using Google Chrome, there is no such problem.

Currently I am using the latest version of Firefox, i.e, Version 61.0.2 (64-bit). I tried different solutions listed for this problem but none of them worked. I created a new profile and using this profile checked whether the problem still persists and yes it has not resolved. Also I tried deleting the handlers.json file in my profile, but it also didn't work.

I have been using Firefox as my default application to open PDF files and everything worked correctly until recently. Now when I open a PDF, the file opens a blank browser tab and continues to open more blank tabs until I close Firefox to stop more tabs from opening.

I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and get the same results.

What can I do to fix this?

I have updated the favicon on a client site and yet my Firefox bookmark still shows the old favicon and will not update to the new one. I've cleared history and cache, deleted and re-bookmarked - all to no avail. One forum suggested an add on but the one they suggested isn't compatible with the latest version of Firefox, which I have.

Any ideas?

Hi,

My Firefox has picked up some unwanted adware/malware that I am unable to find or kill. I am using Windows 7 Pro x64 and if you look at the Task Manager these unwanted processes show up with titles such as these:

1) Technology and Programming News 2) Celebrity Daily 3) Health Tube TV

All are prefixed with a Firefox logo and it is impossible to kill the process My anti-virus/malware software does not find it as it hides itself very well indeed.

Even if Firefox is NOT run after a re-boot this adware (for want of a better description) switches itself on to run in the background. This may take several minutes before activation though. No add-ons show up in the Firefox securtiy section.

Can you suggest how it can be defeated, removed altogether and prevented for re-occurring again please?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Dave

Suddenly when i go to the websites of netflix and stackoverflow i only see text. Image of stackoverflow provided. These are the only ones where i've noticed it at least. I searched online forever and i cleared recent history of today (all of the options except offline website data and site preferences), because it worked fine yesterday, but that didn't help.

If i open firefox in safemode, it works fine. If i the pages in chrome it also works fine. No idea what i did to make this suddenly happen. Hopefully you can help me fix this really annoying problem, i refuse to re-install and set things up from scratch, because it should just work and i didn't do anything.

On my work computer I downloaded and installed FF 61.0.2 as a PortableApp. After starting, it has no SYNC button in its menu, so I cannot initiate SYNC with my other devices. I followed the solution to a similar question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214040), but there is no "Firefox Account" in the left column. But at the top of the preferences page there is a message "Your organization has disabled the ability to change some options." I found out that this has to do with the config option identity.fxaccounts.enabled having a false value. Indeed, in the about:config screen, the setting "identity.fxaccounts.enabled" has the value false and its status is locked. How do I unlock this setting?

What I already tried: Search the PC for mozilla.cfg and check for the statement lockPref("identity.fxaccounts.enabled", false).

There is a file C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg, but it does not contain the text identity.fxaccounts.enabled. In fact, there is a complete FF installation in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox but this company-managed FF-version also does not have the "Sign in to sync" button. This was the reason to install the up-to-date PortableApps version in the first place. I have searched the complete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory for the text identity.fxaccounts.enabled; the only relevant occurrence is in file browser/omni.ja: pref("identity.fxaccounts.enabled", true). (The other occurrences are read accesses.)

I've already tried the solutions listed here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/changes-toolbars-and-window-sizes-are-not-saved they didn't work. I also don't have sync enabled so that wasn't the culprit either. None of my plugins are bookmark related. I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum. This is really infuriating, if it keeps up I'm going to have to go back to Google Chrome.
