Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

I don't see an option to restore previous session any more.

did some googling and found a reference to checking a box in option

it said that then it would be automatic.

so I check that and I'm waiting to see what's going to happen in future: it didn't make my previous session come back this time.

so the question is: Is this right? We must check that option and that's it? No way to go back to the old version method?

I have my Firefox settings to open search results links in a new tab. I can get this to happen with Google, but I *rarely* use it. I prefer Bing. My settings are for links to open in a new tab, and they won't do that with Bing.

I have read what others have suggested about fixing this problem. I made changes in about:config with no result. I opened in Firefox safe mode and didn't find anything on my own. Will check out any tips though.

This has only recently become an issue. I know that Ads have always opened in the same tab and I do not care to right-click or use ctrl.

Another issue I suddenly had with the latest new design update was that when I used the Bing search box, it started switching to an address bar search. I was able to fix that.

Anyone know a sure cure?

After seeing so many problems with ver 89 reported here, and with my own font display problems, I still forgot to remind my wife not to update firefox on her pc.

So, she updated, started using, then firefox crashed. After killing task, firefox loaded up on a white blank window. Troubleshoot mode or whatever also gives a blank, even after restarting windows.

Uninstalled 89, downloaded ver 88 and installed. Had to say goodbye to her bookmarks, saved login etc. To my horror, when I went into options to disable auto update, it was already downloading 89! Even after changing it and exiting firefox, it still updated to 89!

Uninstalled 89 and reinstalled 88 again. Disconnected internet before running firefox so that I could change the update setting first. What a hassle. Can someone with powers here tell firefox devs to not beat the purpose of reverting to previous versions...

Been a loyal Firefox user since the time of Netscape... Really sad to see another very problematic version... Hope the mvp volunteers and top contributors here can compile our issues and submit to the devs...

I use this workaround to fix tearing on my mediacenter powered by a intel baytrail hardware.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Firefox/Tweaks#Enable_Legacy_OpenGL_compositor

until v88, it was working fine.

With v89, the setting layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true has no effect. The "about:support" page reports Compositing: webrender (software) whatever the value true or false.

I had to downgrade to v88.

Firefox's onboard spellchecker needs to go back to college, or probably high school! Every day I have several words with the dotted underline, telling me they're not words, or not spelled correctly. However, when checking the dictionary, I confirm that the spell-check feature is wrong, and I am correct! I don't want to disable it completely, as it does let me know when I've made a typo, which I can quickly correct, but it's a pain in the butt to keep having it say something's wrong with a word, and there's not... I honestly can't believe it can be that hard to use a source that's accurate, when it's something on everyone's screen that uses Firefox...

Cookies and cache are cleaned several times a day. I have the same issue, but, much less frequently in Chrome. So I'm not sure if this is a browser problem or a YouTube problem.

It used to be the case that, while scrolling, after taking my fingers away from the mousepad, that the pages I am viewing in Firefox would continue to move down, slowly coming to a halt. Now, instead, it comes to a sudden halt the moment I stop active scrolling, which honestly makes scrolling down long pages take a lot longer and I really just don't like how it feels. This only recently started happening, does anyone know how to make scrolling go back to the old way where it would keep moving in the direction you sent it in for a short while following?

I'm using the new version 89 of Firefox. Often, when I'm reading an article from a website, the screen suddenly zooms in, the letters become huge, and the page no longer fits on my computer screen. Am I doing something to cause this? It's really annoying and it has me wondering if I should abandon Firefox after all these years for something else.

Does anyone else have this experience? I've only noticed it with version 89?

This is plea for an immediate fix from anyone, anywhere that can do so.

FF update just done today June 14th, 2021 as effectively cut off any user with less than perfect depth, color, or acuity of vision. Whether using natural or lightbulbs or fireflies.

It also threw out most of the screen/toolbar settings!

This "upgrade" is going to drive me away from FF asap because neither of us can no longer read the screen!!!

Its the lack of contrast. It's the new, much smaller, default font size. And lack of demarcation to the tabs as they align with one another side by side. Like a snow-blind whiteout.

It also threw out most of the toolbar itself and altered many of the FF "setting" selections that were previously our defaults or elections.

These are basic attributes which the "upgrade" to FF has just unilaterally changed.

Now, as the user I have to 1) seek out and 2) comprehend more complex instructions like "about: config" and jockey between that and M'soft windows settings??? And then hope I get it right????

FYI I did try via another user-help response. Some relief there with font size, but it looks like a fun house mirror w/ weird size toolbar and onscreen font size. And it took me an hour and alot of holding my breath to see if I got it jiggered okay.

Or seek out and try out any number of color font/screen themes which might work well??-- if I were my grandkids gaming all night under the bedcovers.

Folks have graciously put in the time, effort and creativity to make various pretty and graphically appealing themes. Scrolled through pages and pages and have loaded over a dozen try-outs, but unusable/impractical.

I am not a expert user, dont want to become one, and if FF goes the way of the buffalo and the "vcr" programming  (haha!) then so be it.

However, you have always had a great product, and we want you to continue to be successful!!

Why oh why is it fouled up so badly?? Please don't make me switch to gawd-awful Edge or other browser after being a loyal FF user for years!

I had to reconfigure the entire toolbar setup this afternoon so less- computer-capable, and more importantly less visually-able spouse could use his few desired websites. Wasted valuable hours on unnecessary and exhausting task.

Am going to attempt the revert to older version of FF as stated in another thread just so I can get back to work and keep my visually and computer challenged spouse happy!

Rarely write in to help sheets, forums or social sites, but this absolutely must be addressed!

FF staff PLEASE fix or at least make the former version more obviously, and readily available!!

Sincerely, loyal users
