Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

When i use Firefox and i'm logged in YT, time labels and red progress bar at the bottom of thumbnails aren't visible. When i'm logged out, everything works fine. Also, video progress seems not to work too.

Things i've already done: -turned off all extensions -reinstalled firefox browser

I explored html, and it looks like something blocks browser from putting some elements into code or whatever. The time label is called "ytd-thumbnail-overlay-time-status-renderer" and it's contained in "overlays" div. So when i'm logged out from YT, everything works fine, but when i'm logged in, this "overlays" div is empty.

I use 85.0.2-64bit on a Windows 10 PC.

For the last month or so, when I click on any of the headline links from the news.google homepage, I'm shown only a blank page. No error message. The url looks normal.

-The links all work when I use Edge.

-I do have Add-ons, but I turned them all off, restarted Firefox, and the links still fail. Any remedies? Suggestions? Some setting I don't know about?

I installed Firefox on a MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2012) with MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Before closing Firefox for the first time, I carefully opened settings and ticked "Restore previous session", under "Start" on the "General" settings page. But when I opened Firefox again, there were no tabs, just a "Welcome screen" as if it was the first time ever I use Firefox! This is extremely disappointing! I am really shocked! I had never thought that Firefox would screw me like this! I have been using Firefox on Windows and Ubuntu for many many years! I can add that it is Firefox 85.0.2. And now it updated itself to 86.0.

When my Microsoft Surface is in tablet mode and I click in any text field in Firefox, the on-screen keyboard pops up, there's a little shutter on the screen, and the keyboard closes. If I open the keyboard again by clicking in the task bar, the same thing happens again. The on-screen keyboard works perfectly in all other apps.

Anyone come across this before? Any thoughts?

I'm using the latest version of Firefox and Windows.

Hello! Our company has had this issue since May of 2020. out of 170 users, we will have 3 or 4 users per day crashing at random times. we cannot recreate the crashing on demand, its random times, random pcs. we are running the latest ESR version we do have a handful of PCs on the non ESR version also crashing. nothing in their extensions. we have tried running in safe mode and renaming the storage folder for some of the repeat users PCs but the crashing persists after a few days. we had all users refresh firefox but it will also happen again after a few days. we have tried setting a different home page for some users but they still get it. the only fix is to reinstall firefox and it will work fine for a few days but then will happen again. when they are in the crash cycle, nothing will get FF to open, only reinstall. FF is the default browser since some of our vendors require it. any help would be appreciated!

here are some of the users crash reports. I cant tell what is causing the crashes. we do have mcafee AV and have tested removing Endpoint security modules but still got crashing.

Hello,

Recently I observed following behavior:

  1. Ctrl+L to select addres bar.
  2. "* " to trigger bookmark shortcuts.
  3. I type few letters of my query.
  4. The seeked bookmark is shown second on the list. The first results is a nonbookmarked history item.

See attached image for an example.

The issue is this: Why on earth would I bother with the "* " prefix if I wanted a non-bookmark result?

This seems be a recent change. Can this be disabled somehow? Thanks!

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I've got a problem. On both my towers I have the Stop Button (and the Reload Button too) installed because I hate that little dual purpose thing that looks like a worm in an apple (small a apple) and can't be moved out of the URL bar to the bar I want it in. The installation on the tower (Windows 10 and updated today Firefox whatever that is) is working perfectly. On the machine running XP, with Firefox ESR 52.9.0, both buttons have died. I have removed and reinstalled. Not a flicker of life. AVG has been intermittently badgering me and offering to remove them, but I always tell it where to go (even though it won't) and close the warning. The people at AVG don't seem to understand that a lot of people outside AVG don't accept their prog's fatwa on certain extensions. What I'm wondering is, is it AVG being sneaky, or is there a reason why two extensions working happily for several months should go legs up? AVG warns me on the 10 machine too, btw. But the buttons still work. Before I made the Final Upgrade to ESR 52.9.0, I had real Mozilla buttons, but these ones by kiheru are the only replacements I can find. PS for software reasons I need both XP and 10.

I am using centos 8.2 with it's firefox 78.7.0esr (64-bit) I also have my home directory mounted via NFS using the automounter system.

In general firefox works fine in this configuration. However, when I get on Ebay and try creating a listing, firefox will hang when adding photos and/or moving the photo order. My NFS server will then start complaining about 'failed to contact remote rpcbind.

I try to close firefox and it doesn't It then will ask about a script running to long and offer to close. It won't I wait quite some time and it doesn't close About now the whole system is locked up and I may be able to get to the reboot menu I reboot and it won't because the process is hung. I usually have to power cycle to get things back.

I think if I waited for the automounter to time-out firefox may close at that time.

So the questions are: Is this supposed to work in an NFS environment? What is going on to cause the hang? Are there environment variables to move "some directory" to the local disk drive if that is the problem?

I sure hope someone can answer this for me. Thanks Warren
