Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

I've had this problem since Windows 10 updates from November 2019? When I boot up first thing in the morning and open Firefox I am connected to the net with my ISP but Firefox just hangs and in the bottom left corner says Looking up whatever I've clicked on say Gmail? Nothing happens. If I leave it a while say 2 or 3 minutes I am connected to Gmail and can read my emails. When I click on the link to say Facebook it just hangs again? It may or may not connect. When I open Google Chrome or Microsoft edge I am immediately connected to websites with no problem. I have researched this problem, switched off Microsoft Firewall, and added Firefox to my list in Malwarebytes Premium. It seems to run okay for a few day6s and then the problem returns? Everything okay this morning, all good. Closed Firefox, went had some lunch and when I opened again it refused to connect me to the net, but Google chrome and Edge does? I'm at my wits end now. It's clearly not a internet connection problem else I wouldn't be able to use Chrome or edge? This seems to be something in Firefox that is cutting me off. As I say if I click on a website within a minute or two it will connect me but only that site. Has anyone any idea what might be causing this. All Windows 10 and Malwarebytes software up to date as is Firefox, google chrome and edge. Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

Now I cannot. I can use the mouse right click (after highlighting) pull-down for copy and mouse right click pull-down for paste. How can this be fixed?

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

HI..

I'm running Xubuntu 18.04.4 LTS & recently switched from waterfox to Firefox 73.0.1. I have been bugged by two problems that I haven't been able to fix myself & was hoping that someone here could possibly help.

[ Problem_1. Sync has stopped working.... ] Whenever I open the synced tabs sidebar all I see is "Connect Another Device". On android I'm running Firefox Nightly version 75.0a1 & I've signed out & then re-signed in, but still nothing. The sidebar stays the same as the screenshot above. Both devices show under devices & apps & I can send tabs between both browsers. I just cannot use the synced tabs sidebar. I use sync daily & hope to find a fix soon. Here is the most recent sync log from about:sync-log. >> https://paste.mozilla.org/cXGtysBQ <<

[ Problem_2. Cannot fully use Instagram.... ] I can access instagram.com & browse through the site without any problems. However if I try to like, comment, share or follow I constantly get "Action Blocked" popping up & whatever I've just tried to do has been unsucessful. I can confirm that instagram works perfectly on both chromium & brave desktop browsers & also the official android app.

I have attached two screenshots relating to both my problems & can confirm that uninstalling & reinstalling firefox did nothing. Many thanks in advanced for replying & helping me :)

I had this issue about a month ago, and looked into responses given to similar crashes. I tried disabling Hardware Acceleration, reinstalled Firefox, removed all add-ons and themes, then did a clean reinstall without any of my old user information, and checked my RAM for issues to no avail. I still had crashes in between each attempted fix. I updated Windows Defender and ran virus scans but nothing was wrong. None of the minor changes seemed to make a difference, but the crashes stopped so perhaps it was a culmination of everything, or I just got lucky.

Well last night the issues started again. I checked my OS installation for issues this time, and reinstalled Firefox (and immediately turned off hardware acceleration), but it hasn't helped. I don't want to erase my Firefox Profile and everything else again, so hopefully someone can tell me the 1 thing I need to do to prevent this from happening. I made sure to submit all the crash reports, but most of the ones from the past 24 hours appear to be missing now, so I'll include the IDs from the last three reports before it stopped previously, as well as the first three I ever sent, since I assume this is the same error.
