Hi all. I've been experiencing over the past months an increasingly frequent problem where trying to load a web page shows a spinning wheel for as little as 3 minutes but sometimes until you finally lose patience and close it. When this occurs, closing this tab has a 2-3-second delay.

After the problem ceases temporarily, I will be able to load the same page a few times afterward without problem, and it will work for some time until it happens again. I can see no rhyme or reason to it. When it occurs, no pages of any sort will open; I have to use another browser to try to find solutions. When the current recurrence of the problem stops, all pages that were stuck with spinning wheels now resume loading again at the same time. It's like something is breaking internally then resuming some 3-20 minutes later.

This does not occur on any of 3 other browsers (Vivaldi, Yandex, Opera) that I have tried. I have never run into this issue until it started several months ago.

I have gone through the steps shown in the help document for pages not loading on Firefox but loading in other browsers. I have turned off the indicated settings (IPv6, forced HTTPS, no proxy, use only my ISP's DNS, etc.), removed all extensions, and completely reset my profile to defaults.

Just don't know what else to do here. It feels like it's got to be a bug. I do know that I have recently in the last months split into running separate work and personal profiles. It's affecting both profiles, and one of them was created at that time. So also wondering if it could be a problem with having separate Firefox threads/processes running and causing problems with each other, since I constantly have both profiles up separately.

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?

In Firefox, one can drag'n'drop a tab to the bookmarks toolbar to create a bookmark. During the drag, If one hovers the pointer over a folder in the bookmarks toolbar, the folder is supposed to open so you can put the newly created bookmark inside the folder.

This behavior has been failing a lot for me lately: the folder doesn't open, so dropping the tab doesn't create a bookmark. - The behavior is erratic: right now it works for some tabs and fails for others; - Drag'n'drop to the bookmarks toolbar outside a folder still works; - Drag'n'drop to the bookmarks sidebar, inside a folder or not, still works.

NB: I'm pretty sure it's a bug, but I never created a Mozilla Bugzilla issue before so I decided to see what happens here first.

Today a website told me I needed to enable JavaScript in order to continue, despite the fact that it is enabled. At first, when I received this message, I turned off the "NoScript" extension and tried again, but the website still gave me that same message. So then I went to the about:config page. and it showed that JavaScript is enabled because it showed a value of "true". This sort of thing has happened more than once in the past. I'm forced to go to another browser such Microsoft Edge or Chrome, where I do not encounter this problem. Why is this happening in Firefox, and what can I do about it? My operating system is Windows 10 Professional, and if you need any other details, please let me know. I will appreciate your assistance.

I am using Firefox with the uBlock Origin and Cookie AutoDelete extensions enabled. When I try and load Gmail or any other Google site, I get a blank page and nothing loads at all. This only occurs when my VPN is on (I use Private Internet Access). However, even with the VPN on, Chrome will still load those sites. Disabling the VPN means that the sites load normally.

My guess is it might be some sort of privacy setting in Firefox, but I don't understand what it could be. The only thing that breaks/fixes the sites is connecting and disconnecting the VPN, irrespective of which country I try and connect from.

When composing emails in Gmail holding down a (any) key does not activate key repeating.

Also, the there are irregularities when using discover.com in Ver. 124. When editing my customer profile, keystrokes are not recognized. Nothing happens when typing. I also had difficulty signing-in; this may be coincidental.

Things tried: (1) A different keyboard. Same results. (2) Firefox version 122. The key repeat function worked in Gmail. I could edit my profile at discover.com. (3) Uninstalled and reinstalled ver. 124. All problems persisted. (4) Ran Ver. 124 in troubleshooting mode. All problems persisted. (5) Launched newly downloaded versions of both 122 and 124 (from command line) and ran them simultaneously. The problems persisted in 124 (troubleshooting mode), but 122 worked well. I used two different keyboards with no difference noticed. (6) Downloaded and ran Chromium. All worked well.

I cannot log in to my Gmail account via www.google.pl in the Firefox browser. When I try to log in via www.google.pl, the Bad Request Error 400 message appears. The same problem occurs when I need to confirm login to other websites using a Google account. I simply can't log in anywhere. This problem does not occur in other search engines. A login icon appears on the www.google.com website, but not all related services from Google are available - Google account, Google Play, Gmail, Meet, Chat, Drive, Calendar, and Photos are unavailable - these are just the most important ones that don't work. Cookies are enabled. On December 25, 2023, this problem did not exist. I tried to restore Firefox to an earlier installation date, but it didn't help. I uninstalled the extensions and plug-ins. Unfortunately, the problem remains. Please help me. Regards, Bogaczewicz Bogusława.

Took me a while to figure out how to get the full installer to install to my faster and larger D drive, but I finally did.

Then I discovered it was still accessing C: under: D:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local D:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming

So I now have my Mozilla folders in both locations pointed to D: with a symbolic link or whatever.

But it STILL seems to be accessing C: to do SOMETHING, and I'm not sure what or where, as searching C: for Firefox or Mozilla turns up nothing.

It still thrashes my C: drive though, especially noticeable if I'm using it for something else at close to 100% and Firefox for example loads a Youtube page that was unused/not in focus for a while.

Somehow it's STILL causing as much activity on C as D and I'm not sure why...if I was maybe I could point more directories to D with more Symbolic links (or whatever they're called...I may be misremembering since I set this up a few weeks ago, but they seem to work fine).

(I gave up on Chrome...I can point a bunch of stuff at D, but sooner or later it breaks its ability to do updates until I move stuff to C...I'm guessing maybe the updater "fixes" something in the background that breaks it. Thankfully Firefox seems to update just fine (I do NOT use the background process, I just check every day), and I got 122 today seemingly fine. No idea why browsers are so weird about getting installed on an alternative drive compared to other programs...it's a pretty common thing to want!)

I use Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 11.

When I try to print a .pdf (mainly from gmail), the option for Portrait/Landscape will pop up for a split second, then disappear. I can only print Landscape.

- I've tried changing printers, but still get the same result (no portait option) - When I load gmail on Microsoft Edge, I get the portrait/landscape option as normal. - I changed the layout.css.page-size.enabled option to False, and still get the same result (no portrait option).

This started happening a few months ago, previous to this, everything worked normal.

Does anyone have a fix for this ? thanks

Firefox has been white-screen blocking my access to some common websites including CNN, Amazon and possibly others. No error messages, just a blank white screen. This is a sudden change and has never been a problem in the past. Chrome and Firefox on my other computers are not affected. I have cleared caches and deleted all tabs with no change in symptom. I've also checked CPU and memory resources and both appear normal. No sites are being blocked by settings either, though I would expect Firefox to give me a "This site is blocked" message of some kind if that were the case. How do I fix this?
