Hello :)

Firefox 102.0.1 crashes after some Time. Firefox then is unable to switch between Tabs and stuck at the opened Website.

For testing Purpose i start over with a new profile and did not install any Add-ons. The behavior was the same, it crashes after some hours.

My System is Ubuntu Mate (Ubuntu with Mate Desktop) in Version 20.04.

Here has someone the same problem: -> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=277649

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi, upon booting the latest ESR update I'm encountering multiple error messages warning that:

"The procedure entry point _o_memset could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-private-l1-1-0.dll."

What could cause that error, is it a known problem, and is a fix available ? I'm running the ESR under Windows 7 x64.

TIA!

Over the past couple years, I keep encountering operational failures in Firefox that are not present in Chrome or any other browser.

A few weeks ago, a website ( https://investor.vanguard.com/home/ ) started returning "Unable to open [site]. Cannot locate the Internet server or proxy server." This is not a problem for Chrome, which opens the page almost instantly. Before that, the site wouldn't let Firefox log in after, literally, years of uneventful browsing there. In 2020, the login failure started, but didn't last long.

Earlier, I was at eBay, AliExpress & Etsy; each link took upwards of a minute to open and eBay's pages weren't loading images unless I started clicking in a non-random, but still experimental manner.

I'm using 105.0.1 (the latest, according to the popup).

If it matters, my OS is Windows 7 Pro.

I've been using Firefox for several years, and this has never happened before. This is a pretty strange problem and I'm having trouble describing it, so please bear with me.

Since a day or two ago, I've been experiencing a problem where a small number of videos play, but once they get to right before the end, it'll abruptly stop. The play button looks as though the video is still playing even though it's really not, and clicking the play button does nothing. The only way to get the video to play again is to either refresh the page, move the progress bar back to a previous part of the video, or go all the way to the end of the video, in which case it'll allow me to replay it. The videos this problem happens on are completely random, but the problem persists on the same exact videos. This happens with both direct links to videos (i.e. videos like this one) and "embedded" videos (like videos on Reddit, TikTok, YouTube, etc). However, this only happens if the video has no sound or the sound is off, whether I've muted the tab or turned the sound off on the video directly. It also doesn't matter if the video is looped.

There's also a slightly different variation of this issue that seems to happen less often. With this problem, videos will stop right before the end like the videos that have the other problem, but only for a few seconds - after that, the video will end like normal and I can replay it.

I've tried restarting my computer, playing the problematic videos in a private window, disabling all of my extensions, using Troubleshoot Mode, refreshing Firefox, and even uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem does NOT happen on Microsoft Edge. I'm 99% sure it's because of the new update (105.0), as this issue has only started happening after I updated to it. I updated to 105.0.1 earlier today, and it's still happening. I'm thinking of going back to 104.0.2 if this glitch doesn't get fixed (or at least I don't get help) soon, because I know this issue will seriously get annoying after a while.

Two of the videos that have this problem are this video and this video. Note that both have the secondary version of this problem. I would have uploaded a video of the problem to this post, but this website doesn't let me, so I attached the best screenshot I could take instead.

Any help would be appreciated!

Whenever I try to type in numbers on a web page, Firefox either closes the page or it opens the address bar on the browser. Sometimes it puts up a dialog box asking if I want to leave the page. It's very frustrating because Firefox is making it difficult to add a new credit card to my accounts. This started in the last few weeks, and I'm not aware of any new updates. I tried to refresh Firefox but this problem is continuing. I have a refurbished by Apple 2020 MacBook Pro running Monterey 12.4. I believe in Mozilla and would hate to go to Chrome as my main browser. Can you help me? [email removed from public]

When opening Firefox, the first few tabs work fine. But once i start to open too many, they begin to just time out until i restart my PC. I have looked on my router and it is saying the session limit for my PC's IP is being exceeded. Hence, once ive opened a few tabs on Firefox, no browser or internet connection can work as the session limit has been reached. I have my session limit to 1500, Firefox should not be using 1500 sessions.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I have been using Firefox for accessing my desktop online banking for some years. In the last few days, the images on the part of the logon page that requires card and security details are stretched laterally, which prevents use. The text seems normal. See attached screenshot.

I can shrink the image to fit my screen, but I have not entered any details. The bank has checked their end and cannot find anything wrong: suggested that I switch browser - which worked.

I prefer to continue with Firefox, so wish to find a fix. Have I got some malware on-board, or is it an update issue?

I use Norton for security, and I've done a full sweep having updated. Nothing found. I use CCleaner very regularly - nothing found after checking for updates.

What do I need to do now, please?

There is a chronic problem with the Droid version of Firefox. If I have a web page open, it does NOT matter which page, if I leave that and go to another app for a moment then return Firefox will not reopen/reload the page- the progress bar stops near completion and hangs. This is happening on two different Droid devices- a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 running Droid 7.0 and a Samsung Note 9 running Droid 10.0. There is a way to clear this issue. I close the Firefox app, go to the Droid settings/App. I then Force Stop the app, go to Storage and clear Cache. When I restart Firefox the web page it was trying to load then loads properly. This problem happens continually- it does not mater if I am on Amazon, a news site, a forum, there is no different what place I am on the web. This is also happening with two separate devices running different versions of the Droid OS. The only common factor is Firefox for Android. I am getting sick and tired of having to jump through all these hoops just to resume looking at a page which was already successfully opened. I like Firefox but this chronic problem is not worth keeping it installed at this point.
