After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

Hi Folks,

I've recently started working with a Mac (Catalina) and found an oddity that only seems to apply to Firefox. I set up keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between my macbook display and an external monitor using the in-built keyboard options to add shortcuts.

These target the Window>Move to [DISPLAY NAME] menu entries at the top of the screen. For some reason Firefox windows don't have this menu entry and therefore my shortcuts don't move Firefox windows between my screens.

I've included a couple screenshots to demonstrate. It's not a huge deal but I wonder if it's an issue with my machine or just a quirk of Firefox?

I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

Hi,

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

This worked fine yesterday --- version 84 ----got the notice of a new version and did the upgrade and restarted Firefox. Been crashing ever since.

Running the same Extensions, same profile, same computer, etc. Same thing happens in Safe Mode.

Sometimes I get the ugly tab closed --- send report and "Restore Previous Tab" But it does not restore the previous tab.

Oh, and I do not have a Chrome folder, etc.; no special changes from the stock Firefox.

Could this be a bug in the new release, version 85??

Thanks

hey i have firefox 8.5 - and a problem since v8.4 and present. Web pages load very slowly - the whole browser is very slow, the load on the frame RAM and CPU is reaching its zenith with the windows open. In one word the browser has become useless. Anticipating responses - 1. In safe mode - browser speeds up slightly, but websites still have lags and take a long time to load. 2. I reinstalled firefox - the errors continued. 3. I turned on firefox without logging in and with add-ons disabled - the browser worked with the errors described above. 4. I turned on firefox and logged into the profile, but turned off the add-ons - firefox - still has errors; I turned on a generation of additions (recommended) - firefox still has bugs. 5. My antivirus is not blacklisted by firefox - and I have no worms etc. 6. Standard or changed settings - firefox doesn't work well. Any suggestions or advice? Websites like FB, YT and others are simply unloadable with such lags. thanks.
