Firefox (and chrome, but not edge) crashes on startup. There's no crash report. The window shows up as an outline for a fraction of a second and then is gone. It doesn't show up in task manager. I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. I've updated windows and my antivirus. I've tried a few other fixes that came up from searching for a fix, but so far nothing has helped.

only one i didn't use is hardware acceleration because I just wanna use Firefox normally I am not here for anything that lowers the normal performance I am used to and it's not a real fix

Also Firefox is literally the only thing that crashes on my PC, even other browsers I tried such as Chrome and Opera (both versions including GX) were working just fine, both safe mode and clean installation by deleted the folders in AppData and even deleting everything and updating windows and drivers are up to date, and it still crashes regardless.

Going to %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports\submitted doesn't show me Submitted folder which I assume it happened cause of the multiple clean reinstallation I did but there is pending and events and idk how to share a dmp file here.

Only reason I am still sticking to Firefox is the fact that it's more private than say Google, Opera and Edge and that's most important to me, and the problem happens to probably any website, maybe mainly media sites like Twitch and Youtube but it may jsut be coincidence or maybe cause I stay on these for longer than 5-10 mins normally so they are more noticeable.

Thanks in advance, I am surprised not many people mentioning these problems on the internet but I did see some Reddit posts i wonder if not many people are being affected or just that there are many other options for people to bother complain nowadays and I don't use social media much to post there but I may have to do it eventually if it reaches anyone who can fix this.

[Update: This works correctly with HTTP/2 disabled, so it is somehow HTTP/2 related. Firefox's partner is terminated with ATS 8.0.2, so this is most likely an interaction with Traffic Server, but debugging help is still needed.]

I recently upgraded from Mediawiki 1.31 to 1.35 on Debian 10. Since this upgrade, attempts to log in with Firefox are impossible -- Safari and Chrome work fine. Firefox 96.0 displays the attached error "Secure Connection Failed" but no security error is provided. This seems to be a defect in Firefox, but I am having difficulty diagnosing further.

Looking at both server trace logs as well as the Firefox debugging tools, I see Firefox does an expected POST request to the login page:

 POST https://newwiki.convivian.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&returnto=Main Page

The MediaWiki server replies with a 302 Found and redirect to the Main Page on successful login, but Firefox considers this response insecure on some way that is not indicated. The "Security" tab in DevTools shows no security errors on the transaction.

I am able to reproduce this on multiple machines running Firefox 96.0, as well as with Troubleshooting Mode enabled. No errors occur with other tested browsers.

Is there a way to extract further debugging information from the browser?

Since I upgraded to v96.0 I have been getting this error message every time I open Firefox. I read another thread that suggested I alter...

    browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes

...to zero (0) in "about:config". However, I'm guessing this change basically turns off this functionality, which I wouldn't want if the browser actually crashed. However, this doesn't seem to work at all, either on the network "Data" folder or the local "Data" folder, so Firefox has become very annoying to use.  :-(

I have two (2) data directories (which, of course, contains my profile) for firefox; one on my local machine and one on the network. I normally use the network data directory and only use the local one if I'm traveling. I haven't used the local "Data" for three (3) months, and it worked fine for two weeks. As a test I activated the local "Data" directory (I renamed "Data" to "Data_network" and "Data_local" to "Data"). I got the same problem so I'm sure this has to do with the latest upgrade to v96.0.

My settings, which have always been set like this, are:

 + I have "Open previous windows and tabs" un-checked.
 + I have "Choose what you see when you open your homepage, new windows, and new tabs." set to "Custom URLs..." and my "Homepage and new windows" is set to my home page URL.

Any thoughts?

This started two days ago. I did not recognize what was happening, but the computer slowed to a point of complete unresponsiveness. I had to hold the power button in for a hard shutdown. Next day, I was watching a YouTube video, the video stopped playing, and the computer slowed to a snail's pace. Task Manager revealed something was using up ALL system memory. A look at running processes showed that the culprit was Firefox.

Firefox would start normally, then gobble up all system memory over a few minutes, rendering the computer almost inoperable.

Tried garbage collection, CC, and minimize memory usage under about:memory. This would temporarily reduce overhead, but then it would climb back up next time I started Firefox.

The Ant Video Downloader underwent a redesign days ago; this memory issue started exactly two days ago, on Friday evening, the 7th of January, 2022.

I disabled the add-on. At this moment, Firefox memory use is 642,716 KB of an available 12 GB. There seems to be one main process using the largest share of memory (200-300,000 KB) with 12 other firefox.exe processes running concurrently, all using smaller amounts of system memory. Firefox memory use no longer climbs until all system memory is consumed.

Is there any way to rein in memory use by Firefox add-ons short of disabling them? Are other users reporting this issue? How are add-ons vetted prior to use with the browser? There are few of these video downloaders available. Most are merely copies of a single piece of non-functioning software—but listed under different names, supported by what are clearly fake reviews. Is anyone verifying the integrity of these add-ons in addition to their developers?

In this case, the developer is based in Hong Kong.

Thank you to the community for any assistance offered in this case.

Firefox 95.0.2 (64 bit) Windows 10 (Japanese) updated.

Since one week ( I guess) Firefox is behaving strangely. It take a lot of time to open, move from one page to an other. Disabled Add-ons one by but no avail. Firefox Consuming too much memory. I have tried acceleration,refresh, add-ons disable, only safe mode works. Therefore using mostly safe mode but that is not a solution. Due to this problem I started using MS Microsoft Edge (which I do not want).

Any guidance/help/suggestion/will be appreciated.

A few days ago there was a Firefox update and this morning suddenly GeckoMain started (out of nowhere) using the CPU at 80% (which lead to the CPU fan going nuts). I opened the gnome system monitor and it showed that GeckoMain was overusing the CPU. There's also a process running called "Privileged Content". For as long as this additional process is running, Firefox is behaving as if there were no internet access - infinite time to load any page and if left undisturbed, after a while Firefox closes with a crash message. Also, for as long as this problem is happening, simply closing Firefox with the X button doesn't close it - GeckoMain is still running and the only way to actually close the browser is "killall GeckoMain". So I removed all extensions one by one in order to make sure it's not an extension causing this. It's not. Even after removing all extensions the problem continued which lead me to believe something in my prefs.js is causing it. There were so many things modified in about:config over the years that I have no idea which one might be causing the problem. I have uploaded the prefs.js file here, so that you can review it, if needed: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1j-EAaeBrcawRfzrIr4n9Pg6IyvM9zROV/view?usp=sharing

At the moment I'm writing this question through Waterfox bc Firefox is unuseable with this problem.

Anyone know why I can't upload a simple small JPEG image to a Mozilla Support forum post?

I click the "Browse..." button under "Add images (optional)" under the box where the post is typed, select the file and click the "Upload" button and it just sits there saying "Uploading Image.jpg" but the image never uploads or attaches to my post.

I have tried from both Firefox (version 96.0) and Safari (version 15.2), but I have the same problem. I can't find any info about accepted file formats and sizes for these forums, but the image is only 478KB, and is a JPEG, so I can't imagine it's too big or an unaccepted format...

I am on macOS version 11.6.2. The image file is NOT locked.

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

We are using a Citrix server and have Firefox installed for browsing (normal auto-updated version, not ESR). Some user experience a problem with a normal Google search or a search in Google Maps. It can also be reproduced by executing multiple searches in Google Search/Maps in a row. After 5-6 attempts, the response is hanging for around 3 minutes before it continues. I've added a console export in the troubleshooting information.

It seems that the issue is not appearing when activating the troubleshooting mode. But there are no add-ons (extensions and themes) activated (expect the 2 default plugins) and turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help too. It seems to be related with another setting which is disabled in the troubleshooting mode.

We have also deleted/recreated the Firefox profile and the complete Windows userprofile.

Have someone an idea what we can test/try to identify/solve this issue?
