Last night firefox crashed but I just shut down my computer. Now today for the entire day firefox keeps crashing just after just a few minutes, regardless of what I am doing (youtube video, staring at google homepage, in firefox settings).

I read articles suggesting solutions. These are the things I have done to try and fix the problem but they didn't work:

1) I restarted my computer (shut down last night). 2) Performed the sfc scannow function, but found no corruption. 3) Did a Norton quickscan, then a Norton full scan (stopped after 700,000 files), no viruses. 4) Checked my display drivers, both were up to date (Intel and AMD). 5) Checked my network adapters, both were up to date (Intel, Realtek). 6) No Windows updates. 7) Firefox is up to date. 8) Tried safe mode, still crashed. 9) Refreshed firefox, still crashed.

I attached a list of my crash reports, I submitted them just now (didn't realize they didn't submit). I screenshotted it because I thought firefox would crash before I could copy them all. If needed, I can paste them one by one.

I downloaded Chrome, which I'm using right now and it isn't crashing like firefox. However, when I had firefox open at the same time, firefox crashed and caused Chrome to crash as well..

Any help is appreciated. I prefer to continue using firefox because I'm used to it and it has all my saved passwords. I'm scared of reinstalling firefox and losing my saved passwords.

Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

Somehow the sessionstore just showed a blank tab, but (if opened with a text editor) the sessionstore file containts the complete session (even the latest tabs) but its not possible to recover from that. If you for example open 5 tabs and then close firefox (and wait 2 minutes and check in the task-manager that its closed) and then deleting everything in the 'sessionstore-backups' folder and then starting firefox, then the 5 tabs are there again. I have made backups the moment firefox was not working anymore, but firefox seems to anyhow not load them (have multiple recovery files saved after first problems, instantly). I got the folder from about:support 'open directory' but i'm using Linux (Linux Mint 19 - Firefox 77.0.1). Maybe sessions are saved elsewhere? Firefox even inreased the data inside of them by the new 5 Tabs, so they grow in size, and if you opened it in a text editor you could search the new tabs even, as far as i remember from yesterday. Then i don't remember the order of two things from yesterday:


1. I moved some recently 'changed' files from the profile folder and then move them back (i wanted to backup, but i moved and the problem was somehow firefox was starting at the same time, it was a mistake, and then i had trouble not knowing if the preferences are still the same, and since i updated from i think 64 to 77.0.1 (i have a list of important changes) some where different, for example i would never have geolocation enabled. but others like the deleted pocket links (in about:config) are still the way they are, so i wonder. and i had multiple files in the moment


2. the sessionstore now is little (5 tabs probably), i tried to delete session store very often, i dont know if it was after this? but probably. But like i said i don't remember it.


But now the new problem. The History and Book marks file does not work, i moved them away or deleted them (of course backup before that) because this was an online tip, but the restoring thing just worked for the bookmarks, and just something between i think 1-3 days ago.


The problem now is i can't recover ANYTHING anymore. I can not really read the recovery file with a text editor, many letters are red, with the linux text editor, it says translated something like "some symbols don't work, please choose encoding" and there are many:

UTF-8 Central European (WINDOWS-1250) Unicode (UTF-16) Western (IBM-850) Unicode (UTF-7) ...

Over 50 different probably. Some even crash the program, what is the encoding for the recovery file?

There needs to be an Extension that is able to import and read broken sessionstore files, and 'places' files.


Probably i was to greedy, but i made stupid mistake accidently.

relatively recently (within the last month), Firefox has become prone to hanging. It seems to happen with randomly, and can be trigger by just about anything, e.g. scrolling a window, clicking on anywhere in the window. It appears that even with content process limit = 1, it still runs with a minimum of 5 process threads. Don't know how these are ordered, but the 'last' of these, as displayed in Task Manager (yes Windows 10 2004), seems to be the one with a wait chain.

This is quite frustrating, but although I am willing to help collect relevant diagnostics, I do not know sufficient to know which and how.

All helpful suggestions welcome. The laptop is not CPU, Memory, nor disk bound when these waits occur.

Hi guys,

I've found myself having problems with Firefox for a while on my MacBook Pro (see attached). Other than being very slow (for this I already followed the Firefox guide to improve it, maybe I saw a slight change but nothing major), some days it is impossible to make it even open and, if it does, it keeps on getting this script error: chrome://global/content/customElements.js:655

Another detail: I find impossible to have running at the same time Firefox (when it works) and any program from the Creative Cloud.

Do you have any advice on how to solve this issue? Thanks in advance for your answers.

Firefox usually works great, but starting last night it has been messing with my computer like crazy.

I have a wireless mouse, and a Wacom tablet/pen. Everything has worked fine, but starting last night I had to Restore Down the Firefox window with the Wacom because nothing happens when I try with my mouse. Once the window is has been Restored Down, my mouse freezes, and I have to go into Task Manager with the keyboard to get it to work again. I then have to use my Wacom as a mouse if I want to click something in the taskbar, the mouse for the start menu and any non-Firefox programs, and Firefox will just not work at all. I can't switch/open new tabs, I can't click the address bar, or the search bar, I can't go to a different site, or anything.

I have to open Task Manager to close out Firefox, then everything works fine. I reopen Firefox and it works fine except not being able to use the Minimize, Rrestore down, and Close buttons without using my Wacom, and then when I do, the cycle repeats.

I have tried unplugging things, putting in new batteries, nothing has worked and I don't know what could be causing this issue when Firefox has worked great for me all these years. I'm currently running a virus scan on my PC, but I don't see why it would ONLY be effecting Firefox.

Beim FF geht es nicht. Er öffnet immer an der selben Stelle in der selben Größe, unpassend zu meinen Desktopeinstellungen.

After the last release, common stream platforms are struggling to properly play video. Firstly it started while I was navigating over other tabs while listening to the audio of a youtube video for example, and the stuttering stopped for a while when I selected the video tab. But now it seems that nothing fixes this bug, as I already tried reinstalling it at least 4 times, with or without addons. Currently I'm using the Windows version running on a Windows 10, Ryzen 5 3600, 32GB RAM and Rx580 video card machine, and I don't see the problem occurring on the Linux Mint version that runs in the same machine. I need some help because this stuttering/lagging is making work on a single machine quite frustrating.

Mozilla Firefox is my default web browser since it was established. I never had any problems with it until now. It is this baffling sound issue. Firefox will not play any sound. At first I noticed that some adds on Youtube videos were without sound but I took no action. Yesterday I noticed that no sound will play on Firefox browser. I have no issues with my sound card or audio issues of any kind. Google Chrome plays sounds normally, as well as the Edge, this issue is only when I use Mozilla Firefox. I spent most of the time yesterday and today on trying to solve this issue but with no success. I tried every solution i could find on the internet but no joy. Firefox just don't play any sounds. As Firefox is my preferred, default web browser this thing is especially frustrating. Does anybody have a solution for this problem? Please help! I really don't want to go and use other web browsers, I love Firefox and I donate to it regularly.
