This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

After the last update to version 90.0, I can't continue to use firefox browser. The problem is about opening google sites (youtube, gmail). Other websites seems to work normal, but I can't open youtube and gmail now (google.com itself works heavily). When I type url and click enter, it takes so much time to load, often not loading the site or partially load. Other browsers installed on the same system works normally with the "problematic" websites. I tried hard reload (ctrl+f5), cleaning all browser data, and uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the mentioned actions helped. Please help me to identify and solve the issue.

I posted previously about this and mistakenly believed the issue had been resolved. I was mistaken also about the exact nature of the problem. This was the previous question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1348162

The browser crashes whenever I quit or attempt to restart. By restarting I mean selecting Troubleshoot Mode from the menu or pressing the button to delete the start-up cache and restart. These are the 10 latest crash reports: bp-f3da7332-06f0-4c79-8b14-e70740210902 2/9/21, 21:03 bp-53f2ba80-1f54-447a-85af-723450210902 2/9/21, 21:01 bp-afd9c845-e03a-4f9e-972e-68da60210901 1/9/21, 20:42 bp-916bcb43-2680-465a-8b8b-fddac0210901 1/9/21, 20:40 bp-479ccc87-0e54-4ff5-8c03-ef76b0210831 31/8/21, 20:51 bp-994d7424-def0-475b-8a0c-beba90210831 31/8/21, 20:46 bp-0ace2282-d5e9-4ed1-aeda-e08070210831 31/8/21, 20:40 bp-de957d75-4798-472e-8029-cd6200210830 31/8/21, 09:18 bp-36bece94-9415-45e5-8658-ae2290210830 31/8/21, 09:14 bp-0cd40c3a-787c-48ed-92a6-8a8830210830 31/8/21, 09:12 I have opened the latest.

I have reduced modifications in about:config as much as I can stomach and also tried disabling all addons.

Hi, I would like to start firefox with a new session (one tab on my home page) I am using Firefox 74.0 on openSUSE Leap 42.3 - KDE Plasma 5.8.7. In the preferences I have "Restore previous session" unchecked. in about:config I have:

browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash        false
browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes  0

I don't have a user.js

I log out of KDE without closing firefox. At the next login all my tabs and windows are restored. I would like to start with a new session with the option of restoring the old session using the menu. I want to keep my history and the undo close tab/window functionality. Is there a way to do this ?

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

This issue started on August 19, 2021 with a profile I have been using for about 3 years. It persisted so I copied data and the chrome folder to a profile folder I created in October, 2020 but had not used. That was on August 22, 2021. It happened again with the 'new' profile. I quit several times earlier in the day (without clearing history, clearing and managing data) without issue. Sometimes the lock file is NOT deleted when Firefox quits. These are the reports from August 22, 2021: bp-4788a5d4-5989-492e-a8af-fc34b0210822 22/8/21, 21:20 bp-8aadf9d6-51b7-4da1-b28e-439b20210822 22/8/21, 21:18 bp-132d4134-609a-4a45-ac7e-9b3350210822 22/8/21, 21:15 bp-ac52e700-c3d0-48e2-ab32-233b80210822 22/8/21, 21:11 As directed by the support article, I clicked on 'View' for the latest report. After the mozstats page finished loading, I closed it.

On the entertainment media site Buzzfeed, clicking on a post of an embedded Twitter video gives me a blank white image. No error message like "Unable to play the file". I did a clear history, cache & cookies and refreshed Firefox. I ran the apt update for Ubunto. It had been operating smoothly in the past. If I go to Twitter, it plays. It just goes blank when I click on the video embedded in the post.

Thank you for any assistance.

Hi, In these last days, I deleted a bookmark folder or something by error. Then I found some daily backups, and I restored from the last one backup.

The next issue was that the following daily backups have less bookmarks, and doing some testing, it appears the Daily backups, now, are not including "Other Bookmarks".

It has less entries from now on.

I want to know if there is a bug, or something changed by itself. How can I fix that?

Thanks

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

Firefox 76.0 64 Bit for Linux Mint 1.0 Mint 19 Cinnamon3.8.9

How can I prevent a single tab from closing?

I would like to prevent the keystroke Ctrl W from closing the active tab.

My understanding is that it is impossible to change keybindings in Firefox.

I thought an alternative might be to set Firefox to warn before closing a tab.

I had no luck in finding such an option.

Is there such an option?

If not, any other ideas?

I had set the about:config settings after 75 came out to fix the address bar. Today I got 77.0.1 and now the address bar seems broken again. When I mouse over it, there is no longer a down arrow to click and show my common sites. If I click in the bar and then delete everything, the list of common sites appears. If I click away and click back into the blank address bar, now I have to hit the down arrow to get the list to appear. I need a way to get the down arrow back so the address bar works as expected.

These config options are all set to false:

   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips
   browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps
