Recently I was having trouble using Firefox with my web based Outlook email and asked Microsoft for support. In their reply they recommended that I reset Firefox.

I am reluctant to do so as I don't want to lose all my add ons which have accumulated over time as I am not sure about how to get them back if I lose them with a reset.

Is there a way to reset Firefox but keep my add ons etc?

I would appreciate your advice and thank you in anticipation.

Anthony

Hi, for the past week whenever I open Firefox (FF) it works normally for about two minutes, then slows, then causes my entire mac to slow and freeze. If I don't force quit FF quickly, my mac crashes. Once I force quit FF everything is fine. I've been using Chrome for the past week or so hoping FF would fix itself with an update but no go.

Anyone else having this issues?

Been desperately trying to get Firefox to run on my Acer Chromebook 315 through Linux. The app store version just isn't cutting it. I followed these instructions below as best as I could installing linux and flatpack. I even ran a power wash and tried again.

The icon comes up in my dash, but is gray and endlessly loading. Not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty my system is compatible. Is there another way? Am I missing something?

Thank you,

hi, it has been 2 days since firefox starts to behave in an unusual way. when opening many tabs, and if i dont click on them (ie inactive) in 2-3 minutes, they go blank. when i click on an inactive tab, firefox quickly refreshes it and shows the page. example: let's say i have 3 open tabs: tab1, tab2, tab3. i am reading in tab3 for 15mins. in that period, i didnt click on tab2/1. if now i click on tab2, it is blank and no longer displays the content of the page it is supposed to show. then, firefox quickly refreshes the page and displays the true page.

not really sure why this is happening now. never happened before. it is a really annoying behavior as every tab had to be refreshed automatically if i dont click on it in very few minutes. firefox 96.0 ubuntu 18.04. thanks

Firefox takes a long time to connect to Ookla speed test

Firefox became non-responsive yesterday while I browsing. This was on several profiles. If I closed FF and restarted it usually said FF was already running. I closed FF in Task Manager but that made no difference. Rebooted the PC but to no avail. Did these several times but made no difference. However Windows 10 Edge worked.

I restored Windows 10 back a few days & then FF worked. I then updated FF from vers 94 to vers 96. Even after FF indicated it was now vers 96 it still kept checking for updates for probably 10 minutes.

Today I did a few Ookla Speedtests. After clicking “GO” it takes about 30 seconds for the test to start, which does indicate a ping of 10 ms. Ping varies a bit with every test.

If I use the Edge browser it takes only a second or two for the test to start with approx the same ping.

This almost 30 second difference is repeatable. I never noticed such a big difference between the two browsers before.

Why does FF take so long to start the speedtest after clicking "GO"? Does this have something to do with FF vers 96? Or is there something wrong with my FF installation?

Thanks for any suggestions. Thanks

I'm struggling with firefox crashing every few days or so. Unfortunately, pretty often there is no crash report. Is there a way I can sanely get to the bottom of this?

It happens to me more often with Cisco Webex than other scenarios, but there are also completely unrelated crashes.

This is Ubuntu 20.04 and standard firefox package installation. I haven't yet turned off the extensions:

 feedbro
 gnome shell integration
 stylus
 uBlock origin

I hesitate to disable them since most are important to my work.

Any help is appreciated.

I have Firefox on the default update setting, and I have 3 of the most popular add-ons installed.

Why does it seem Firefox (Mozilla) is changing my home page to the MSN home page "https://www.msn.com/?pc=ACTE" about every 2-3 days. I have manually changed it back to the Firefox homepage 3 times now. I believe this may of started with the latest update?

Is Mozilla selling their soul again? - likely Or do I have a virus or is it an add-on - "unlikely"

Thanks in advance.

Hi, since 12 July update, any theme with a darkish colour is now leading to full dark mode on screen, i.e. web page is in dark mode, sidebar is dark mode etc. Whereas pre-update the screen/sidebar were light, which is how I like it.

The only way I can keep light mode now is have a 'bright' i.e. light coloured theme.

This doesn't seem right does it?

How can I keep my old, pre 12 July theme(s), or new ones and still work with light screen?

Thanks
