For the last 6-8 months, I cannot check out (make a purchase) using Paypal on my Windows 10 computer using Firefox. Paypal works fine with Explorer. But Firefox, which I prefer for all other purposes, just goes into an endless spiral if I click on "check out with Paypal". For all and any online vendors.

Some major probs just developed & now I have a totally different theme & a new version of Firefox 56.0 installed today... See image of installed programs

while I still have Firefox 95.0.2 from 12/20/2021 Firefox 54.0.01 from 8/19/2017 Firefox 61.0.01 from 7/30/2018 Over time newer versions accumulate & I've been told not to try to uninstall any of the older versions as it may crash ALL versions


it happened I think sometime after closing a normal session ... I was trying to clear out everything (junk & temp files etc.) as I normally do when using CCleaner then a message said Previous session not correctly closed a message said Firefox is still running do you want to force it to close" I said yes...then it said "its taking a long time to close... do you want to force it to close? I said yes... this happens occasionally & with EDGE as well...but usually there's no problems afterwards

btw: I'm using [Windows 8.1] & after several attempts at restarting Firefox...with different 'fixes' including using safemode... I did a computer restart ... & I did a regular profile backup last time 12/16/21 so as a last resort it may help...but I'm afraid to try to mess with it

anyway...then I was trying to look up solutions & for those of us who are not tech savvy..there's too much info & too may options & links & they lead to new articles like using about:config & browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash & restoring sessions etc which just gets confusing I copied raw data to clipboard (which is a million pages) & then copied text to clipboard (not as bad...but it may help someone to help me....

hopefully someone can straighten this out for me... I'm worn out trying to figure it out myself thanks

I've recently noticed that some icons on websites are showing up as "asian" characters. I haven't knowingly changed any settings, gone to any strange sites, nor added any extensions. I've tried clearing the cache and even removed and reinstalled firefox and the few extensions I use, which are the common ones like adaware,etc. Nothing has seemed to work. The icons range from ones that link to facebook, twitter, etc to the search icon. If I inspect the icon it says the font is "MingLiU_HKSCS" I've checked the setting and it says the font is times new roman and even unchecked the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" but neither seems to work. Thanks for your help

I've looked through every question on the Support site regarding saving pinned tabs, but can't find a specific answer. I have a pinned tab, and in my Settings under Startup, I have the "Open previous windows and tabs" box checked. However, every time I re-open Firefox after previously closing it, the pinned tab is gone. Is this because I close Firefox using the "X" in the upper-right-hand corner or simply close all the open tabs?

As of yesterday my screen has gone black. Not on all sites, my homepage is a UK news site and that`s OK but my email is all black, when I try to search for a new sight the google page is black. Some sites come up black and some white. Sometimes the site background is white but the drop-down box is black. I have tried disabling all add-ons it makes no difference. I have tried un-checking these boxes: "Use recommended performance settings Learn more These settings are tailored to your computer’s hardware and operating system. Use hardware acceleration when available" I am demented and have tried fiddling about for a whole afternoon to try to sort this. I have had Firefox for years and have never had this problem. My version is 95.0 (64 bit)

I have searched for this problem, and only come across outdated information about Youtube's intentional changes to slowdown Edge and Firefox in 2019. This is not that.

When I load a new youtube video, the video will buffer as normal, and then buffering stops. Then there is a delay of about 10 seconds. You can see from my screenshot that the buffer is filled just fine, and playback begins about 10 seconds later. This also happens if I skip ahead/back or to any position in the video. This firefox install is on a new install of Windows 11, with a new xps 13. The previous xps 13 with windows 11 didn't have this problem, and I don't have this problem on my desktop setup with windows 10.

I use a few addons: decentraleyes, ublock, duckduckgo and I have privacy protections set to strict. I have tried a few troubleshooting steps and the problem persists. Things I have tried:

  • safe-mode
  • fresh install
  • installed additional codecs
  • used user-agent workarounds to show as a chromium based browser
  • turned off hardware acceleration

The problem doesn't happen on chrome, but it does happen on Edge, which is strange. Because of this, I'm wondering if there is something going on with codecs. In the firefox screenshot posted, the codec used is vp09, same with Edge. But in Chrome the codec is av01.

I have been using using the new "Proton" Interface for a while now and still cannot get used to the ridiculous look.

My Questions: 1) Who designed it? Was it a colaboration between Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles?

2) When changing a design (in such a bad way) why on Earth wouldn't you leave the option to revert to the previous version

3) Why was it changed??? I think this is the most pertinent question. I work in software Development (have done for over 25 years) and it smacks of a department trying to show they are adding value to a product... for the sake of it.

Modern Software Devs have a knack of fixing things that are not broke and redisigning the look of software instead of fixing the bugs in the core of the system.

I can't do my day job this way. I didn't have the various problems, crashing tabs, difficulty getting to HTTP sites (I can't help how someone has their site set up) when I was back at release 83, as I recall. I want to find a copy of release 83 to install. What I want to know is, Will I miss crucial items if I do this? Thanks.

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too. I am certain that key-presses are being sent, they are just not reflected reliably in the browser. There are more than enough resources available for firefox.

I'm struggling with firefox crashing every few days or so. Unfortunately, pretty often there is no crash report. Is there a way I can sanely get to the bottom of this?

It happens to me more often with Cisco Webex than other scenarios, but there are also completely unrelated crashes.

This is Ubuntu 20.04 and standard firefox package installation. I haven't yet turned off the extensions:

 feedbro
 gnome shell integration
 stylus
 uBlock origin

I hesitate to disable them since most are important to my work.

Any help is appreciated.

Most of the others topics apply here.You override preferences and other serivices to install updates I don't want or need and more -- Firefox now wants ALL of your personal information, which iif you don't comply, creates conflicts with every other program.

I am one inch away from going with Google Chrome, which is just as bad but at least doesn't conflict with Windows, which is equally as invasive and worthless.
