When I have Firefox running, Windows is freezing occasionally. Sometimes it is freezing every few minutes; sometimes a couple of times per hour. I find errors in the Windows event log from the ESENT service which correlate to the freezing events (see attached image).

The freezing events seem to occur more often if I have more Firefox tabs open.

I have tried running Firefox with add-ons disabled and have uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox and the in both cases the freezing events still occur.

The freezing events do not occur if I use MSIE or Chrome, but I would prefer to use Firefox.

I have checked Device Manager for errors - there are none. The S.M.A.R.T. utility reports all OK for my C drive.

I am looking for advice on how to resolve this problem.

Thank you!

THIS keeps on happening at least 6 - 8 a year. ive cleared the cache off Firefox, rebooted it, got a now TESCO site and it is still the same. Yet Google fires up all right all the time. I have got 3 pc of a type and they all can get TESCO without any trouble. Ive been with you for 20yrs and am reluctant to change noW. Tesco just say your better of using Google than Firefox, which isn't much help. Yes they can get me on (sometimes) but they all ways say Google is the one really.

There must be something i can do?

The Firefox browser on Windows desktop 100% redirects to an isolated and unusable bank login page. No other browser does this. Firefox Android does not do this. I tried clearing cookies / cache, disabled all extensions, safe mode without success. This is very frustrating when trying to use and support Firefox over Brave which never has these issues. In both cases below, the initial site nearly fully loads then redirects. Malware not an issue given very tight PC security and new install of Firefox.

Chase.com -> https://secure03a.chase.com/web/auth/logonbox?lang=en&fromOrigin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.chase.com#/logonbox/index/index

schwab.com -> https://lms.schwab.com/Login?clientId=schwab-prospect&startInSetId=1&redirectUri=https://client.schwab.com/login/signon/authcodehandler.ashx&enableappd=false

Both of the redirects contain only the login forms of the main page (eg "Login ID", "Password", "Login" button)

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

Out of all the hundreds of websites I regularly visit each week, two websites flag the exact same security warning on Zone Alarm every single time I visit them, and I have never gotten this warning anywhere else at any other website. I am already aware these two websites are not to be trusted so I suspect they have engineered something to compromise the Firefox web browser. Zone Alarm pops up a warning that "Firefox is attempting to monitor user activities on this computer. If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, websites visited, and other user behaviors." A screen-cap of the Zone Alarm warning is attached. I deny this action in Zone Alarm every time it happens. Let me again emphasis this happens nowhere else, only at these two sketchy websites I occasionally visit and it happens every single time I go there and my concern is that they have embedded something in their webpages compromising the Firefox web browser.

Hi everyone, I'm having issues with my url/navigation bar and I can't find out how to fix it. I already reinstalled firefox but it didn't change the issue: When I type in a website (or a search) in the url bar, nothing happens when I press enter, I have to manually click on the arrow to get the browser to react. (It works just fine in other browsers). I tried to de- and re-activate all the Address Bar Suggestions in preferences but this also didn't change anything.

Hope there's a solution out there..

All good Simon

When I create a tab by clicking on a link, normally the tab will open to that link after a small delay. But some tabs just sit there, seemingly dead to the world. I've tried refreshing by hitting enter, or when possible (which it usually isn't) the refresh button on the taskbar, but nothing happens.

If I create a new tab, and cut and paste the link from the old one to the new one, usually the new one will open right away (after the usual delay). Meanwhile, the old one just sits there.

This has happened before (in much earlier versions of Firefox) in a small percentage of cases, but it is now happening with some frequency. I am currently using version 78.0.1 (64-bit).

Every time I download something whether its a program or file, Firefox would completely freeze for a few seconds and then go back to normal and resume the download. I find it very irritating, especially when I am trying to do something else on a different tab whether its working on school work or just watching a video. Is there a fix for this or will this be fixed in an upcoming update?

78.0.1 just got installed for my Windows 7 desktop. Now the auction tracking popup no longer works. From my ebay purhase history and select tracking on a purchase it used to work and the box would not be too big. Now the box is formatted wrong and the close button is off the screen to the top and the bottom is also off the screen and no way to get to current tracking info on that page or original tracking info.

This used to work. It no longer works. I stopped using Waterfox because it has never worked in Waterfox and now Firefox does not work either.

I have auto update and installation checked. I have very few sites where ABP allows ads. I have Bitdefender for antivirus. I have reset Firefox at least 5 times this past 6 weeks. This has gotten old. I have tried starting without the Add-ons, but what's the sense of having Add-ons available then? If I try to use Firefox with the autoplay feature for videos on sites like NFL.com or NASCAR.com, Firefox will in short time crash (Firefox is not responding), ..usually when I have more than 2 tabs open, but has done it with a singular tab open. As a matter of fact, it will sometimes crash before loading the page. If I use FIrefox with autoplay disabled, I can't even prompt the video to play. It doesn't even show up in the play section when prompted. So what's the sense of that? After resetting Firefox, I fail to understand why in the most viewed panel, why my most viewed aren't there after each reset? Also, why doesn't it populate my most viewed consistently? That being, if I go to the same sites all the time, why don't they show as most viewed? I get sites showing up I've only been to once in a month, instead of multiple times in a day. My final thing...why does Edge keep prompting me to install it while using Firefox? I have Edge already installed when Firefox crashes and it has a fresh install from just 2 weeks ago. But I still get these annoying notifications. I know this is long, but this is what happens when you try diligently to do as the instructions show in the Help section multiple times...only to come to the same conclusion. Can someone please help?
