Firefox is frequently crashing after having tried most of the general troubleshooting steps and crash specific troubleshooting steps as well (but not every single one). Next one to try is updating Mac OS because I am one version behind. that being said, the update takes a long time and just wanted to see if anybody can quickly identify what may be the issue before upgrading Mac OS. It seems to mostly crash when clicking on a link or button.

Please note that from the very beginning when I started using Firefox close to a year ago, I had a specific bug that has never been solved (but it never caused crashes in the past). What happens is any type of pop-up menu does not open properly and the pop-up itself "crashes" when you try and open it (e.g. auto fill pop up when you focus an input, context menu pop up, drop-down menu for various Firefox actions in the toolbar, etc.), but it does eventually open with several attempts. Would greatly appreciate any help, thank you.

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!

I'm a web designer, trying to move away from Chrome because of privacy/security issues. I'm also 63 years old. My eyes are old. The text size on the tabs and bookmarks is very difficult to read. I don't want to increase the size of everything else - ***just the tab and bookmark text***. I've tried the fix seen elsewhere in the community for this question, but that doesn't change the size at all. If I increase the size, say by Zoom, that's a problem with my page layout. Can anyone help, please?

I'm on a Mac, but using an LG monitor, so no Retina display.

31-August 2021 . Hi all, recently the Australian government , “Bureau of Meteorology” weather and radar – website has stopped working under HTTPS and FireFox – it does work under Microsoft Edge though (Yuk). . Unfortunately even if under the FireFox internal settings - you disable the need for a HTTPS connection – the website still kicks you out anyway – and any direct call to the site (http://www.bom.gov.au) – will just kick you to an endless loop of no achievement – by basically constantly telling you “you cannot use HTTPS” and the HTTP link provided just loops you back to the same place. . For now – the only solution I have found is to leave “HTTPS” on – and create an exception for every single page (very zzzzz). . So for me , I am only excepting and viewing the local weather radar page and getting all other info from other sources. . Machine specs - Win10 Pro , Firefox Version 91.0.2 (64-bit) . I have also (via Edge) – reported this to the “BOM” in Australia, . I hope this helps someone , as I cannot be the only person in Australia trying to access this site – but having to sign up - to report the problem here, I did find more than a bit off putting.

I am going through a project now to update my email address in my hundreds of online profiles... all because I'm changing email service (from earthlink to a combo of icloud and mailfence) and am anal about updating my records/profiles. I'm also trying to clean up any multiple-account/multiple-username type situations I'm coming across. My Firefox account email address update is making some issues surface. Here's what's happened . . .

So far, on mozilla.org, I was able to change my alysenet@earthlink.net email address to alysenet@icloud.com wherever that field is in my profile. I can't recall what my USERNAME was for that case. I THINK, somewhere along the way, I also DELETED my "alysenet@earthlink.net" account on mozilla.org, though I wouldn't bet my life on it. All I know is:

1. I'm able to LOG IN aok to mozilla.org using alysenet@icloud.com and a password. Yay!

2. BUT . . . ANNOYING: I am seeing that when I get onto mozilla.org (such as on a Firefox Forum Support page) using alysenet@icloud.com and my password, the upper right part of the screen shows "alysenet1" not plain vanilla alysenet.

3. AND . . . ANNOYING...and what I'm trying to SOLVE is: When I go into my alysenet@icloud.com profile and try to CHANGE my username from alysenet1 to alysenet, I get a "username already taken" message.

I think MAYBE the "username already taken" is due to *MY* originally having an alysenet@earthlink.net account and maybe the system still considers it "active" even though I (am pretty sure) I *deleted* my Firefox alysenet@earthlink.net account on 07-26-2021.

Would the system say "username already taken" even if I was the one who had that username and deleted that account? Dunno if that's what's going on; I'm trying to understand what's going on.

BOTTOM LINE: Can you please:

(1) look into whether the "alysenet" as well as "alysenet1" were/are BOTH *ME* ??? Alyse Simon, in San Diego? If you need additional identification to make sure that "alysenet1" and not just alysenet, is Me, just let me know what you'd like to know.

(2) fix the system so I can change my username from alysenet1 to alysenet?

Thanks.

I truly hope the developers at least refer to this site for concern requests for fixes.

It seems every about:config fix for the spacing of the bookmarks as well as the photon/proton fixes are doing nothing on Firefox version 91.

Is there anyway to get a simple checkbox that fixes the views for desktop? The whole world is not working on tablets or phones and this is so frustrating to see functionality continually broken with updates that are obviously required because of security issues that plague the online world.

Can any developers please respond to when users can see a fix to this issue? I know this is far from life ending but it breaks the visual aspect of the browser so badly.

Problem appeared in the last few days so I assume it is due to the recent update - 91.0.2

Clicking the Menu button (3 bars), the button goes grey but the application menu does not appear. If I move the mouse around, I see flashes of the menu but that's all. A graphics problem?

I have also found that copying and pasting is inconsistent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it flashes. No problem in Thunderbird or other applications.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox - no difference I have tried Firefox in Safe Mode - no difference

Hi,

I frequently have a problem where I will receive this error message every time I try to open a link from another application or the Windows desktop: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

The existing Firefox window is running perfectly fine with no problems, and I am forced to copy and paste links to open them.

The problem goes away temporarily if I restart Firefox but usually starts happening again not long after.

I did search for help with this problem but the only results I found were in relation to the Firefox process actually being stalled and preventing the application being re-opened, this is NOT what is occurring for me.

Since its latest update, I think, not sure which one as it has so very many, all causing me problems; firefox now no longer takes me to my homepage even tho that is the one I have chosen in my ff settings. It is the page that came on everytime I go online or open another window. It is my main email account and I go on it for many reasons through out the day. But now instead of taking me to my homepage it puts up a stupid message telling me the page doesn't need authentication and could be a trick, do I still want to go on it. As I am always working and going on this page this has become a big time waster and aggravation. I have tried several things, can't fix it. How do I get rid of this stupid message. My homepage has been the same for years.

When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.
