Hello,

Firefox is experiencing constant crashes and making my computer fan work hard.

Hi, my firefox started to crash regularly for a few months. I have seen it crash while on idle, while changing tabs, while opening ne tabs... i.e. no repetable pattern. Morever, I couldn't figure out the reason since all the crash reports turned different reasons for each crush. It has now become hourly crashes which really started to affect my workflow.

A group of experienced hackers have made my devices their target. They continue to remove any security I try to place on my computer, i.e., downloading developer apps which allow them to administer the computer and devices.

They have maliciously targeted my business and sabotaged a lot of my apps so that they will not work. Going to the "Authorities" is a waste of time. so I will not discuss this.

I need help in tracing the street trash thugs who continue to access my computer, place malicious malware and worms on my computer so that it will not function at his required level, and replacing bonafide adds with fake apps so that they can control and conduct surveillance on all of my Apple Devices.

I have reported this problem to Apple and they are worthless. Not enough training, and the service is inferior.

I need upper level technical support to identify how they are manipulating my browsers so that they provide absolutely no security.

Malwarebytes is manipulated, Avast as well, and they have downloaded an app that allow them to share my screen and collect all of my passwords as they are individually entered.

I received an error message warning of suspected malware when attempting to update a Firefox password using Dashlane and chose the block option. Now whenever I try to open Firefox I get this message:

The application “Firefox” can’t be opened.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox but it doesn't work. I do not know which app sent the original message, since I did not have Norton app blocking activated.

Since downloading the latest version, the browser stops functioning after the first site. It won't even allow me to quit, without the 'force quit'. Plus, while in the first site (my local newspaper) it stops recognising key strokes and mouse clicks. In fact, everything stops working.

I'm sending this through Chrome.

Any fixes?

Thanks, Stan Nikolic

My Firefox crashes frequently with iOS 10.15.5, the newest iOS. This happens especially after a period of rest when I am not using my mac. Performing a Force Quit often helps, for a while, but sometime I have to reboot because Firefox is not responding. In fact, a regular Restart sometimes doesn't even work, and I have to press the off/on button. Yesterday I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. No change in problem.

Is anyone else experiencing these problems.

Today I update MacOS Catalina and the same as the update some weeks ago Firefox is removed. I could not find the app anymore (the dock presented a big ? at the place where firefox was.) Last time I downloaded and re-installed Firefox, but today again all is gone after the automatic update of Catalina. On my iPad and iPhone there are no problems. Now I did remove all remaining Mozilla files on the Mac and are prepared to download again.


Why is the app removed? Or must I adjust the installation

In Firefox Gmail, trying to use Google Hangouts to call and the microphone is not available. I've added a picture of how it looks in Safari and Chrome with the same Gmail account. Yet in Firefox the microphone option is not available (see pic).

I've tested all the mac functions and the Built-in Microphone works in for dictation, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It Also works well in Safari and Chrome, just not in Firefox.

Anyone has a solution?

Again it works for 7-10 days then will not open at all. I have gone through these install / uninstall processes at least 10 times. Yet after 7-10 days Firefox will not open. What is causing this, and how can I keep Firefox working continuously on my Mac? Thank You. WA

P.S. - I am sending this question from a Windows 10 computer because I cannot open Firefox on my Mac.

I tried rebooting in safe mode, which worked. But now it's happening every other time I a window, and the only fix is to quit and restart.

Here's a screenshot so you can see more easily. https://www.dropbox.com/s/10xv6t0wvwo7z3j/Screenshot%202020-03-29%2009.56.11.png?dl=0 (also uploaded below)

As the question says. I updated my Mac (2018 MacBook Pro) to the most recent OS (Catalina), I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox like 6 times, cleared my trash and any and all Firefox files, and deleted all profiles, made a new default one, and then deleted that one when it still wouldn't start, and restarted my laptop more than once. I cannot seem to get it to start no matter what I do! I've tried every fix I can find online. Every time I try to launch Firefox, it appears in the dash for a second and immediately shuts down. Trying to start in Safe Mode doesn't work either. Firefox used to work, but then I force quit it *once* because I was quitting all applications I wasn't using. Now it won't work at all no matter what I do. How do I fix this?

I am having a similar ongoing issue with Firefox refusing to open, and none of the fixes I've seen in this forum have worked. When clicking the icon it bounces once and then disappears from the dock. Honestly, this started happening about August 2018, and in my troubleshooting decided to give the Developer edition a try, and for some reason that one worked so I stuck with it.

Shortly thereafter (a week or two) whenever I closed down the Mac, Firefox Dev wouldn't re-open. Deleting and reinstalling would work, but I'd have to re-set all my settings, re-activate the theme, etc., and all the browsing history would be lost. So, since then I would rarely shut it down.

A few days ago I had to shut the Mac down completely, but this time Firefox Dev wouldn't open after re-installing. Oddly, I tried regular Firefox again as a solution, and it opened this time. I tested it out by shutting the Mac down completely, then restarting, and it retained all of the settings! I was really glad to once again be able to shut down my laptop at the end of the day without the headache of having to reinstall and re-set everything.

Then this morning, boom - back to the same nonsense, except now it won't open at all. Neither the regular FF or the Developer edition will work. I've done clean uninstalls to see if that was the problem, as in: removed them from the Applications folder, removed them from the Downloads folder, removed the /Firefox folder from user/Library/Application Support/, and emptying the Trash.

I saw in one Support post to delete the fbplugin file, 'as that had been causing Firefox to crash'. The closest I found to an 'fbplugin' file was a bundle-config.1 file, which contained 'fbplugin' throughout the file code numerous times. I renamed it temporarily, but didn't delete it. That didn't help the non-opening problem either.

I also tried installing Firefox v 71, same result as the others.

Keep in mind after attempting all of these solutions of deleting, reinstalling, changing file names, etc., I did a complete shutdown and restart. Also, I have not downloaded, updated, or changed anything since last week's phenomenon of regular Firefox beginning to work again. So I'm completely stumped and would appreciate any help. I'm currently running macOS Catalina 10.15.3. TIA.

When Firefox updates, it's an extremely frustrating experience. Enough so that I'm about ready to switch over to Chrome (I already use it for work). Every single time, websites suddenly can't load and all my extensions stop working. It's happening now! I'm writing this from Chrome.

I'm frankly not sure when or why websites start loading again, but it seems to take about a day for things to get back to normal. I've tried closing and reopening Firefox, but that doesn't seem to do anything. It just takes time. I have a 2017 MacBook, OS Catalina 10.15.3.

Is this a known issue? I see all kinds of possible solutions when I try and look for some myself, but oftentimes the OP says they didn't work and then people offer other solutions. I'm wondering why this seems to happen, and if there's a suggestion for how to fix it once and for all—I've never had this problem with Chrome.
