Firefox crashes when switching between tabs. Worse than usual crash, the last page i was viewing is there but unresponsive to mouse or keyboard including contr-alt-delete. Must push and hold the power button on my Dell XPS8940. Windows 10 Home 21H2 OS Build 19044.1586. Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4170.0.

There was a window with 7 tabs, 1 playing a youtube video and 5 with videos not playing, one other site with no audio and another window with a website streaming only audio. When the system stopped, the speakers made an odd sort of buzz sound until powered off. I am on the latest version FF 99.0.1 but a similar crash happened on version 98.0.1. Before that this Dell never locked/crashed up this way.

This Dell PC has Realtek audio just like our HP W10 laptop and they both had issues when new with all sound not working when playing a youtube video only in Firefox (HP Feb 2021 and Dell Oct 2021). Launching Groove Music and playing an mp3 always got the sound working. Problem did not cause any program to crash. Windows updates to drives eventually fixed the problem but it only even happened in Firefox. Current problem is new in the last month or two and only on Dell.

I have discovered a problem with Firefox updates when opening a Kaspersky Safe Money browser session.

In Firefox, Tools - Settings, Firefox Updates, it shows Firefox is being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates has been greyed out (screenshot attached).

When you use the Help, About Firefox option it also says that Firefox is being updated by another instance (see screenshot attached).

When you check the same Settings in the Safe Money 2nd session, it shows exactly the same information and you cannot update Firefox in any session.

In previous versions of Firefox, when you opened a 2nd session it said that Firefox was being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates was greyed out but you could still update Firefox in the main session.

This is not a problem when using Chrome or Edge so it must be related to Firefox so can anyone suggest anything to fix this or does it need Tech Support to look into it for fixing?

Thanks.

I notice some reported this problem in 2020, in a post that's been archived.

I reported it previously in a different post, but I may not have provided enough information. I am using currently 91.10.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap 15.3 Linux.

When I right click on a web page, and choose "Save Page As..." from the menu that appears in response to the right click, then choose "Web Page, complete (*.htm *.html)" as how to save the page, Firefox goes through some process, something is placed on the disk drive. But often, the status of the download shows as "Failed". That is until I retry the download. I've even been able to "Show all downloads" and click on an icon to retry it, sometimes days or weeks later, without even re-visiting the web page which was originally saved, but after clicking on the icon to retry saving the page, the status shows as "Completed". It could just be an issue with Firefox reporting the status, rather than an actual failure.

Is this a "bug"/"error" in the program code for Firefox? If so, is there someway to report it, or will this post serve as such a report?

I'd appreciate any helpful thoughts.

I have tried this with the Troubleshooting option "Temporarily Disable Extensions" and the problem still occurs. Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) on Win10, Intel.

To reproduce:

Go to https://www.healthgrades.com/ . Search Carlene Bolen (any name?) in Tulsa, OK. Click on first result. Opens a new tab to https://www.healthgrades.com/providers/carlene-bolen-29brb. So far so good. Click on page. Hit PgDn 3 times, or scroll down quite a ways (to comments). Hit PgUp or attempt to scroll to top of page. Tab goes into infinite loop toggling between "X" and reload symbols on the NAV bar. Also page no longer renders properly and F12 debugger won't open. Firefox process for that Child tab uses 35% of processor, but doesn't show anything unusual in Firefox "Task Manager" process list. Must close both the child tab and the previous Healthgrades parent tab. Eventually the offending Firefox process exits and everything looks normal.

Whenever I try to full screen a video the first time I open the browser, the video will not completely fill the screen. It only happens on firefox and the first time I open the browser. I thought it was my extensions but it was not that. A thread was created on reddit describing the problem I have. I have linked it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/rhwuvz/firefox_full_screen_on_win11_always_leaves_some/ I tried to change themes and that also did not work.

I've been noticing this more and more recently. I'm using Firefox 102.0 on a Mac running Monterey (12.4) with 64GB RAM. Firefox will suddenly zoom up on a screen between 400% up to 800% (I'm guessing; no way to verify this): see screenshot. This happens on random pages without my hitting any keys or clicking on anything, and I cannot replicate it. Note that I do not have screen zoom engaged, nor do I have any sort of zoom mechanism turned on in the OS. Hitting "undo" does nothing, as the browser thinks I'm trying to undo an action on the page, not a zoom. Resetting Firefox or restarting makes no difference.

Note that the screenshot is at actual size, but I have no way to control the resolution at which it shows up for you.

The Historic Houses Association (www.historichouses.org) site has an option to show a map of interesting places. When I view this map in Firefox on Android or Windows 11, the icons show up correctly. For instance in the example map, next to Lincoln. In Android/Windows the icon shows a small castle in a drop pin while here in a Linux desktop it just shows a cross hatched box. The link to the web page still works. The roads in the Android/Windows versions correctly show A1, A46 etc. But here in Linux, you can just make out the road numbers behind the vertical hatching. Over a long period I have seen this has occur on a number of sites but I think that the maps are probably (cannot prove it) Mapbox/OpenStreetMap. But when I look at OpenStreeMap it self, the Road Numbers are fine and when I add a layer involving tags, they show as normal.

I know I could address this inquiry HHA but they will simply say 'they do not support Linux'. The site works in other environments so why not Linux? Also, as I have said, it has occurred on other sites in the past (though I must admit I cannot remember which ones and when - I tried a few while writing this support request) Is it likely that the web pages are being downloaded with a catalogue of Icons but this fails in the Linux version of Firefox? Would this account for the road numbers being corrupted as well?

The PC is running a fairly new (last 10 days) installation of Linux Manjaro with Mate desktop. However, this has been happening for some time (a couple of years) during which time, I have used Linux Mint, Debian and Manjaro, with Mate and Gnome desktops. Firefox is used as provided by Linux Manjaro, including Noscript and Adblocker - I have tried viewing this page with both disabled. The only changes I have made to Firefox settings is to enable 'when you open a link .... switch to it immediately', 'search for text when you start typing' and set 'browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab' to false.

I have put up with the problem because it only affects me, however I am about to load Linux Manjaro on to computers for other less computer literate/tolerant people who will be using similar maps. It would help them if I could get a fix.

Thanks for your time

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

So, I joined a couple porn sites recently, but I can't download anything from them at home (I can download from the same sites on my work PC without error). I try to download MP4 files and even compressed ZIP files (containing large number of photos). I right-click on the Download link and chose Save Link As. As the browser is opening a window for me to browse to where to save the file to, an error message pops up. "filename.mp4.part could not be read from the source file. Please contact the system administrator" The download is never placed in the download queue and if I browse (in File Explorer) to where I tried to save the file to, the file shows as 0 kb. I have experienced this in Microsoft Edge, too, so it may be computer-wide, such as antivirus blocking the downloads. I have Chrome but Chrome crashes about 5 mins after opening it. I will add that Firefox can save JPG picture files from the websites. I have tried going to Show All Download and clicking Clear Downloads, but as the downloads in question are not queueing, there is not much to clear there. I really don't believe this is an issue related to MP4 files as I can playback MP4 files on the sites. Windows 10 and latest Firefox version. Next troubleshooting steps for me are temporarily disable my antivirus and try saving to a different folder, preferably on the internal HDD. Normally, I save videos to an external USB HDD.

Hi,

When I type a search query into the address bar on any Facebook Group and press enter nothing happens. I need to try 2-3 times (sometimes more).

I've tried clearing cache, removing all data, program files, re-installed, but this didn't make any difference. Same on Firefox Developer. Microsoft Edge works.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.70 GHz Installed RAM: 8,00 GB Edition: Windows 10 Home Single Language OS build 19043.1766

Firefox version 102.0 (although this has been happening for months)

Hi,

the add on of phantom wallet for my firefox was working perfect for 2 month. for some days i can not login anymore. password is for sure the right one. i get "unknown error" as seen in the picture i added. I wrote to the phantom wallet support and they ask me to run a command in the developer mode.

is this safe to run the command and send a screenshot of the results to phantom wallet support?

thats what the phantom wallet support want me to run:

Hi again,

Please ignore the steps mentioned in my previous email, it can be quite confusing. I have outlined the exact steps in detail below:

Step 1: On the address bar, visit: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox You will see a page as displayed below.

Step 2: Copy the Internal UUID.

Step 3: Vist: moz-extension://<Internal UUID>/popup.html You will see a page as displayed below

Step 4: Open the Web Developer Tools (Command + Option + I)

Step 5: Enter the password and click on "Unlock"

Step 6: Copy everything you see on the Console logs and paste it here or screenshot them to us.

Important: Do not try reinstalling the wallet.

Regards
