RE: Firefox extremely slow to load pages or connect to Web sites after startup

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

Running Firefox 102.0 in Win 10. When I try to download a PDF file, I get (1) a dialog box saying the download failed, (2) two 0 byte files in the download directory with the name of the PDF file I'm trying to download, and sometimes (3) a PDF file with a filename of 8 random characters that appears to be the file I'm trying to download. How do I fix this?

I've been locked to google safe-search while on Firefox for a few days, despite my settings being set to unlock. After having gone through various settings, including my AV I noticed that I had a strange looking symbol in my URL bar that was forcing safe=active on all google searches.

I have TrafficLight by Bit-defender Installed, and I noticed this symbol looked the EXACT same but belonged to another extension that I DID NOT install myself.

The name of the offending extension is "Preview of Parental Control: Family Friendly Filter" by Media Partners. [LINK] : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/family-friendly-filter/

The company name is Sketchy and I worried where it came from. I have uninstalled it, but I am seeking direction regarding where it may have come from. Could someone look at the extension and advise??

I have two Outlook accounts registered & one set as default. But, when I tried to setup my default in settings, Apps, default apps, email it only offers me Outlook.com (instead of my default choice) so automatically always selects the mail account I do not want! It used to work OK for years until I had a recent SSD failure & hence I need to reset it correctly. Your help page doesn't seem to tell me how to select the specific mail account I want (i.e. when you have more than one)? Please therefore tell me how to do that & also change your help notes accordingly.

Hello,

I have developed a three.js component that works without issue on chromium. On Firefox, part of it does not display.

<unable to upload images, the upload hangs <- happy to send via email>

See chromium.png for how it should look. In firefox.png you can see that it is missing the surface area. For reference, the 3d axes shown are three.js components also.

firefox_console.png shows issue loading webgl

firefox_console_after_force_enable.png shows the same after webgl.force_enable was set to True in the config.

Can you offer any advice here? Our customer is keen to continue using FF.

Thanks in advance. Scott

We must use a third party application which can only be installed in user home directory. We'd like to create a GPO to manage user settings, and configure a handler for this application.

Is it possible to use an environnement variable (for example %LOCALAPPDATA%) in the path of a handler ?

My "save" passwords is enable, but I am not being prompted to save the login information for new websites as well as websites that are already saved but I have more than one logins.

I thought if I edit one login, I could add or the system would ask me to replace or save as new, but it doesn't and I can't find why is it that I am not being prompt to save the information.

Not sure if its just this one page or other websites and it is just a setting that influence this behavior.

Any ideas? Thank you

I was prompted to update to 102, then after experiencing tons of problems, another update, to 102.1, which achieved....nothing at all.

Hi, this is a minor problem and more a quality-of-life thing, as there is no hard crash or bug per se. Context: I need to print a LOT of things every month for the job, so I download a LOT of PDFs.

Problem: When downloading a PDF, if I open it via the dropdown menu in the menubar, it opens, but immediately unfocuses Firefox. That's it. Why the unfocusing? Lol.

Limits: If I mark PDFs to open automatically (in the options) instead of downloading, then it opens fine and no loss of focus. Same thing if I open from a folder, it's set to open in Firefox and it does so, with no loss of focus. As far as I can tell, the issue appears only when opening from the download button/icon/dropdown menu from the menubar.

Suggestion 1) Adding a "Download AND Open in Firefox" option in the settings would be my ultimate greatest option but.... maybe not the best for cluttering millions of people's browser options. It's just what "I" want to do ;)

Suggestion 2) Trace where it loses focus and re-focus / prevent loss of focus when opening from the menu.

This issue is for all 360 videos. Also i am not able to write reviews in google maps, same thing. You can press the button as many times as you like and nothing happens. Any idea? disabling ad-block plus didn´t help. Clearing cache (all time / everything) etc didn´t help. Troubleshooting-Mode didn´t help.

Any suggestions?

Following that last update to Firefox, the Facebook game Criminal Case stopped working properly. When certain things are done in the game the screen in the game is shrunk and doesn't occupy all the space it should do. When this happens, none of the buttons on that screen in the game work. In the attached image, the in-game screen should occupy all the black area that surrounds it.

Other players of the game have reported similar problems when using Firefox. I am currently playing the game successfully in Opera GX browser.

Hello,

I have many and long lists of bookmarks saved in the "Bookmarks Toolbar". The problem is that when I hover my mouse within the lists and sublists, the new rectangular form of a certain list (within another list) places over the old one in a way that I cannot distinguish the beginning/end of each one.

Can that be fixed or is there another theme that will help me see clearly the boundaries of each bookmark list/sublist?

Thank you!
