Hello,

I have been using these products with no issues for as long as I can remember. Yesterday, Firefox started crashing when typing anything in the address bar. I tried to self diagnose and created a new profile. Now that does not happen but it still crashes. I cannot access Add-ons in an attempt to disable them.

Also, Thunderbird crashes when clicking on an email to preview. Then I figured perhaps this is a Mozilla issue so I tried to Open a Tor Browser which uses Firefox Quantum, and guess what? It crashes also.

Could one of the windows updates have caused this? Not sure what to do.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I've been using Firefox Beta on Android for a while now.

Recently my household purchased a Roku, a type of HTPC. While I was watching a video in Firefox Beta, I noticed a new button in the video UI, that said "Cast to <my Roku model>". You can read more about this feature here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-firefox-android-send-videos-your-roku

How do I disable this functionality? I appreciate Mozilla adding convenient features, but I don't want to be in my room watching a private video, accidentally press this button (it's right next to the other controls), and have my video play on the living room TV where my roommate is sitting.

Hi,

When I want to open a link from an external program (Thunderbird, OneNote) and firefox is already running, I get the error message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I expect firefox to simply open a new tab in the currently open firefox window.

I checked previous answers about the "no-remote" option and the "MOZ_NO_REMOTE" environment variable. Both are not set, so these solution did not help me. ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1175106 )

I do not have several profiles, my current profile is the default profile. I am not in private browsing mode and all "Browser.link.open" in about:config are set to default.

Can anyone please help me with this issue? Kind Regards

I downloaded the latest from on site, and checked the description-menu which maintains the programs updated. Still I receive a notification bar maintaining Firefox to be critically out of date. The 'update now' button leads to afresh download. This is a potentially significant security risk.

After 10 years... my users expect an end-user-friendly, reliable browser. Sadly, IE or even Chrome now match that description better than Firefox 63+.

(Feel free to break these into separately-trackable issues, if you like)

1. Please purge ALL non-essential animations currently built into the product (as opposed to a website, obviously.) All animations *on the Firefox-generated tabs* are extraneous, CPU-robbing and distracting. End-users expect a reliable, consistent, non-distracting product.

2. Don't require CSS (code) changes to work around product defects (like dysfunctional on-tab animations). Provide a user-friendly setting to block *all* Firefox-provided animation effects, some of which can cause medical-related reactions for some users (I used to be in that category).

3. Fix the damn yellow-bar warnings, once and for all. "A web page is slowing down your browser" is NOT a helpful diagnostic; but we've been seeing it for years now. Please replace it with something that will lead customers to figure out how to solve it. For starters, report WHAT site is triggering the yellow-bars.

4. Please don't assume users all have high-end CPUs; do some release testing with (e.g.) Celeron 900-based laptops. (Yes, you can "subcontract" those tests to me ;)

i see mozilla has removed the option to turn off notifications, and i'm irate at the direction mozilla is taking with this.

case in point, i updated recently and some idgit at mozilla decided "hey, let's completely change the control panel, look, all settings, and everything else!..."

i am one step from deleting firefox from all my devices...I'VE HAD IT

if i can't choose how and when i want to update, then forget it....i'm DONE with firefox...

oh, and the jerks that wiped out all of my settings in the last update?...you can go [ahem] yourselves

I have been playing poker on this site... https://www.youdagames.com/en/online-games/governor-of-poker-3-free/

As of yesterday, June 3rd, the game simply will not load. Already tried clearing the cache, no good. Upgraded flash, nope. They suggested another browser. I have opera so tried, and it works just fine. I don't use opera. Don't really want to either. One browser is fine.

They finally admitted they just did a game upgrade and suddenly now firefox won't work? Sounds to me like this browser has an issue, not their game. Since it works on another browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm on version 64 and please DO NOT tell me to upgrade. The next version will AUTO upgrade without my knowledge or permission. VERY BAD AND STUPID IDEA TO FORCE THINGS ONTO PEOPLE! Let ME decide when, why, and IF I need an upgrade. NOT YOU! Hoping when you come out with the next version you LISTEN TO PEOPLE and stop forcing upgrades. Bad enough I have to click "not now" every damn time I launch this thing. STOP IT!!!! This has been said by MANY PEOPLE too. LISTEN! STOP IT! So an upgrade isn't happening. If I have to I'll simply switch to opera. Really don't want to do that.

Hoping you can figure out why this simple game site suddenly stopped loading.

I will forward this post to the support person I've been talking with. MAYBE you two can get together and figure out what went glitchy? (I have been reading many similar complaints while searching your very confusing maze of a site trying to find where to post this. So it seems you have problems on many fronts with sites not functioning.)

No add-ons coming from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ can be installed in my Mac, all because of a single issue ("Download failed. Please check your connection."). I've noticed that images in this site cannot load properly as well. I checked the console and it seems that the GET request was responded with 404. Install requests sent to other websites seem to be working. I successfully installed zotero from its website and some other add-ons via downloaded .xpi files. However, some .xpi's cannot be installed directly either. I got a message saying this add-on appears to be corrupt.

I duckduckwent this issue and tried all the following solutions (though none has helped): 1. Added "xpinstall.enabled => true" and "xpinstall.signatures.required => false" in about:config; 2. Downloaded the .xpi file directly using other browsers, but when I tried to add it manually, I got the message saying this add-on is corrupt. 3. I tried InstallTrigger.install({URL: "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/1168281/adblock_plus-3.4.2-an+fx.xpi?src=search"}) in the console and still got the connection error. I clicked on several install links in add-ons websites and they came back with 404. I think these links were redirecting me to addons.mozilla.org.

I don't have any antivirus software in my Mac, at least not that I know of. I enabled "allow site to install add-ons" and "allow pop-ups", etc.
