Since yesterday, Firefox is crashing constantly. Any action taken on a page can cause it to crash. My cache and cookies have been cleared (every time I end a session), my computer has been restarted (now 20x). I have checked settings on MFF and all looks correct. I have used for years and never had this issue but have been using another browser since yesterday afternoon because this is disruptive to work. Anybody else having issues since the update 5/29/24?

tl:dr Here's the CSS to put in userChrome.css file. This is the "hides everything" option. See toward the end of this post for others.

  1. navigator-toolbox:has(#PersonalToolbar[collapsed="true"]) {
 visibility: collapse;

}


+++

I was looking for a way to hide the nav bar and ran across this older forum topic (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288181).

The solution shown here seems to be non-functional these days (early 2024), but it gets us in the right direction, so below is the code for us to look at.

  1. main-window[chromehidden*="toolbar"] #nav-bar {
 visibility: collapse;

}

This is CSS, meant to be copied into a text document, itself placed in a folder called "chrome" that you'll need to create in your browser's active profile folder. Per step 6 in the instructions (https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html) linked by @jscher2000 in the above-linked forum topic, you'll also need to set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to "true" in about:config. If you don't know what about:config is, this is a good example to get started, but I'm not going to explain it here.

This CSS code selects the object with ID #main-window, with an HTML attribute "chromehidden" equal to "toolbar", and sets its CSS property "visibility" to "collapse". Apparently Mozila have changed the way they implement toolbar hiding, as this no longer works — this chromehidden attribute is nowhere to be found in the HTML that drives the Firefox interface, not sure if that's the place to look for it, but I think so. Anyway, we need to dig around in this interface HTML ourselves to see what changes when hiding the bookmarks toolbar, so we can adapt a new method to what's going on in the browser now.

To do so, we open a window within a window (chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml) and run the inspector via Web Developer Tools. Comparing the HTML we see here with the bookmarks toolbar in each state (I used BBEdit to compare the texts), we see that the object with ID #PersonalToolbar experiences a change in its "collapsed" attribute when we hide/show the bookmarks toolbar. So in our CSS code, we shift our strategy to update the "collapse" CSS property for #navigator-toolbox whenever it contains a #PersonalToolbar object with its own "collapsed" attribute set to "true", which occurs whenever we hide the bookmarks toolbar. Somewhat surprisingly, this approach of updating the CSS property seems to auto-reset on its own when the "collapsed" attribute is set back to "false", which occurs when we show the bookmarks toolbar again. In other words, it simply toggles with the visibility setting of the bookmarks toolbar, and we don't have to write any further code.

If you're interested in hiding some other UI element when hiding the bookmarks toolbar, you can modify this code to do stuff like that (but to go beyond the below examples you'll need to suss out the object IDs, CSS properties, and HTML attributes — and maybe more, depending on what you're trying to do — on your own).

But for convenience, here's an example that hides just the tabs:

  1. navigator-toolbox:has(#PersonalToolbar[collapsed="true"]) #titlebar {
 visibility: collapse;

}


Here's one that hides just the URL bar:

  1. navigator-toolbox:has(#PersonalToolbar[collapsed="true"]) #nav-bar {
 visibility: collapse;

}


Since those are the only other two things in the #navigator-toolbox to be hidden, I suppose that means we now have all options on the table (at least the way I have the browser set up). Enjoy!

Now it seems that I have more than one problem since the upgrade. The browsing history in my sidebar is not current. It is running about a day behind.

I reported earlier that the type on my LinkedIn is only out 7 pt when my settings have the minimum size at 14 pt.

Dear Firefox Support,

I am writing to report an issue I am experiencing with Firefox Stable (v.126.0) when attempting to access the URL https://ibb.co. This URL is supposed to redirect to https://imgbb.com, but instead, I encounter the following error:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to ibb.co. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

This issue seems specific to Firefox Stable, as I am able to access the URL without any problems on chromium-based browsers (Chrome and Arc) and Safari. Additionally, the URL works correctly on Firefox Nightly (v.128.0a1).

I have attempted several troubleshooting steps, including:

   Disabling all extensions
   Using private browsing mode
   Clearing cookies and cache
   Restoring settings to default

Unfortunately, none of these methods have resolved the issue.

Could you please assist me in resolving this problem? Any guidance or further troubleshooting steps would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support.

I am running a Mac Mini with the M1 chip. I recently updated the OS to Sonoma (14.5) from Monterey and find that the type on Linked In is tiny, only about 7 pt. My FF is 126.0. My minimum font size on Firefox is set to 14 pt. If I make it larger, like 20, Linked In is readable, but all my other sites are too large and hard to navigate.

Your automatic reader thinks I'm running 10.5. I've never run 10.5 on this Mac.

LI says it is a Firefox problem, which it is, because the site reads fine on Safari.

I know that there are sites which don't work on Firefox, like Chase Bank, which is a drag. Please don't tell me that LI is another one.

Somebody, please help.
