The latest Firefox update locks up my Mac OS 10.14.6. Force Quit does not work. Cannot shut down properly, or at all, unless using the power key. Did not have this problem until I updated four days ago. I have to run 32-bit because of other applications.

Since downloading 76.0.1 on my mac laptop Firefox freezes every few minutes and somtimes jumbles up web pages showing black boxes flickering and jumping around. It is quiet alarming. I've gone through the recommended fixes three times now but the problems persist. I've also reinstalled Adobe Flash Player and Duckduckgo as well as Firefox. I thought the problem could be flash because the freezing occurs most often when I am playing a word game. I tried taking a screen shot but the mouse is frozen while firefox is hung up. The jumbled pages can be anything but it seems that it's mostly pages with images. The problem occurs in safe mode, too. I am not having similar issue with Safari.

I am a member of Quizzclub and regularly take part in on line quizzes. Lately I have noticed that the pictures which are part of the quiz, crop in such a way as to obscure the first answer option. In the attached picture you can see only two options, Switzerland and France but underneath the picture caption there is an answer option 'Germany'. This does not happen in other browsers (Safari and Chrome) only in Firefox.

The URL of the pictured page is https://quizzclub.com/quizzes/can-you-match-the-cheese-to-its-country-of-origin/

Can you please look at why this is happening as it spoils my quiz experience.

Hello! My Firefox tabs crash constantly since I got a new computer. I have tried all the suggestions I can find in the forums. I did try downloading Firefox for enterprise but I could not figure out how to get it up and running, it seemingly installed, but Firefox seems to be the same. My new (to me) computer is a MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 if that has anything to do with it. I have Parallels installed on my computer for the first time, if that might have anything to do with it. I have not had the problem with Firefox crashing within the Virtual Machine, though. Here is the latest submitted crash report: bp-f70bd533-3d22-4cd6-9f39-498920200121 Thank you for any insights and help!

I recently had to wipe my MacBook Air clean thus prompting me to download Firefox - version 70.01 (64-bit). I set up all of my work websites, history, passwords, emails, etc., but every time I close the browser and try to open it again, nothing is saved. I've tried several times and I am at a loss. Yes, I have created a Firefox account, and even this won't leave me logged in if I close the browser. I have to start over every time. Any advice?
