I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

Hi! I'm going nuts. I have Firefox set to NOT remember sessions when I close and re-open. But every time I re-open the (latest) Firefox on my (up to date) Mac, 3 tabs reappear. It doesn't matter how often I delete history or cookies or empty caches. They are not even 3 tabs from the most recent session! They are from a week ago. And no, they are not pinned tabs!

And yes, I have reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what I should do?

Many thanks!

Is there an easy way to downgrade back from the beta channel to stable? The downgrade protection feature seems to be a major blocker of just installing the latest stable version. Noticing high RAM usage on Firefox 100 and crashes which is making it hard to use for a daily web browser.

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

I've tried to install several search engines via Mycroft Project to use them through the search bar but that doesn't seem to be working.

I don't get any notice, it just doesn't work.

Also, one of the search engines I've been using (Twitter) seems to have disappeared from my browser. That's what got me to try to install it again, with no luck so far.

(I've dowloaded Firefox Nightly, installed it from scratch, and seem to have the problem.)

I am using the Developer Edition of Firefox and this problems occur when I noticed that the permission pop-up didn't contain all of the information it was supposed to say. This problem also happens when I wanted to bookmark something in the browser itself.

I have installed quite a few extension and some of them also experience the same problem :

  • React Developer Tools (affected)
  • Multi-Account Containers (not affected)
  • AdBlock (not affected)
  • Password Manager (not affected)
  • Tab Session Manager (not affected)

I think this is a bug on Firefox end and I would like it to be fixed as soon as possible. Thank you very much.

Hello,

Since the new update(s) I'm having major issues with the settings of my Wordpress website. It seems I'm not the only one having problems adding a user in Wordpress - which is impossible in FF, it only works in Chrome. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-set-password-for-new-users/

But now my major problem is that the changes I make (see screenshot) are not saved in FF. So when I log out of WP and FF, then start again and login to FF and WP, the changes I've made are not shown, in other words, the old situation is back.

I disabled ALL of my add-ons, that seemed to work for a short time, but as soon as I was testing the add-ons, to find out which add-on was corrupted, I now have the same problem again, and all the add-ons are OFF.

So I'm stuck here, and find the errors I see in Wordpress bizar it can be caused by FF.

I'm using the latest version of FF, which is a beta which I don't like, but as soon as I try to downgrade, I am getting page crashes all the time.

Am I the only one having this issue?

I need some help please!

Win10 with what was Firefox 89. I had already disabled the Proton UI on this installation, because it is horrible. Today Firefox decided to update to version 91. All of the Proton UI junk is back. I tried disabling it again, but nothing worked. Doing a web search, it appears that Mozilla has disabled the ability to turn off Proton.

I then set about to rollback the installation back to version 89. I found a Mozilla link on this, went to their ftp server and downloaded the installation files for the last version of 89. The installation went normally, but when I opened Firefox afterwards, a little box popped up saying something to the effect of "To keep your History and Bookmarks from possibly being corrupted, Firefox must create new user profile." I exited out of this and Firefox didn't start. I attempted to restart Firefox again and the same box popped up again. The only way to get past it was to click the accept button.

I did so and Firefox started. This was clearly not version 89. As the UI is junk, it took several minutes to find out that this was now the latest version of 92!!!! I'm absolutely positive that I downloaded the correct file. When I look through the update history, it doesn't even show todays version 89 installation as happening. What a piece of junk.

I then spent 20 minutes figuring out how to revert back to my user profile, not the new one that it had created for me. I then did some research on what had happened. Well it turns out that you can't actually rollback Firefox, despite what Mozilla says. For a while they have added "downgrade protection" which automatically creates the new user profile and stops your old profile from being accessed by it. So unless you want to figure out how to spend a hundred hours reconstructing bookmarks, passwords, settings, etc. it actually isn't possible to rollback Firefox. Doesn't this violate some Microsoft rules about being able to uninstall versions of software from within Windows? If you try to do this with Firefox and go back to a previous version it blows everything up.

Does anyone know how to actually rollback Firefox to a previous version, so that Proton can be disabled?

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

Tried to:

  • Disable proxy (never had it enabled anyway).

  • Restart the browser (after each action).

Nothing helps me... But I still can visit some websites, but most common resources are not working for me. Please help me because I can't use Microsoft Edge without getting mentally ill. :/

Then i found the new function of "minimize memory usage" button,it is useful,but not so convenient.Can you please add a new way to use this function? Like: set a number of memory usage(for example 256000KB),when reach this number trigger the "minimize memory usage".Then it will be like "auto minimize memory usage". Or,you can just set an UI button on the toolbar to trigger "minimize memory usage".

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.
