Hello,

For a few weeks now, I have a lot of crash when using firefox (I'm on windows 10). Not the whole application is crashing, just the current tab that I'm browsing. It said that a random error occured and offer me to reload the tab. It then works but crash again a few moment later (irregular). I tried to update my drivers, to uninstall and reinstall firefox (even did a full wipe of the app and its files before installing again), I tried some old firefox versions but I always have the same issue.

When I check the event viewer I have these kind of error for firefox.exe : Faulting application name: firefox.exe, version: 96.0.3.8061, time stamp: 0x61f17d54 Faulting module name: xul.dll, version: 96.0.3.8061, time stamp: 0x61f17d85 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000001e75563 Faulting process id: 0x1a84 Faulting application start time: 0x01d81552ce22efba Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\xul.dll Report Id: 6154e84a-b617-4067-a5f6-b49760fffb03 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

Any idea on how to solve my problem please ?

Thanks in advance

I know and admit I stuffed up.

One day a long time ago I was prompted for my master password.

When I clicked in that area/field a requester popped up asking me to pick a colour. Confused I picked one - and a bad one I now see.

So now when certain parts of a web page are opened the background colour is this horrible colour and I can't really read what is there.

I don't understand what I did or HOW I did it.

This is a cropped example of the bad contrast I am seeing.

As I said, I admit I stuffed up. But this seems to all have happened since that one time with the main password requester.

I live with Firefix always in full screen. I Don't like seeing any bars or buttons of any kind.

Befor the latest update, when I moved my mouse to the top of the screen my tabs popped down and in the top right corner was the standard icons for "minimize" "maximize" and "exit".

With the latest update the tabs are there but the 3 buttons have gone.

If I exit full screen (F11) then they are there again, but I dont want to have to exit full screen every time I change between programes which I do every few mins. I'd be popping pages in and out of full screen every few mins!

How do I get the buttons back all the time?

I just updated last night to version 98.0 of Firefox, and have noticed that when I click on manage bookmarks that the boomarks now open at the bottom of the various bookmarks folders by default instead of opening at the top like they used to. What happened here? I am including a picture to show where the manage bookmarks section is going by default now instead of where it normally does. Can anyone help fix this?

I use Firefox a lot, and a couple of months ago, it started duplicating images whenever I ctrl-v'd the images into discord. Since then, I've completely reinstalled firefox several times, with no addons-I also tried the beta and nightly versions, and even Waterfox, and still run into this problem. It seems to be an issue that strikes a lot of firefox users, and I haven't been able to find a fix yet.

In short: copy image paste image into discord (it doesn't matter if it's ctrl-v or right click paste) two images are attached to the message instead of one

This only happens to some images, mainly .pngs. I have no idea what is causing this problem and I would appreciate some kind of fix.

My Firefox browser seems to have reset itself to Windows 8 compatibility. I have Windows 10, 64-bit. Firefox will not open full screen, but opens a tiny, narrow window at the bottom of the screen which I have to use task manager to close. I remember one of the automatic updates coming through a few days ago.

Can I do anything other than uninstalling and a new install? I'd like to keep my favorites list, etc. I am at the extent of my computer skills with this.

My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

I'm wondering if GPU is at fault. I've ramped up cooling based on GPU. Still crashing. Tried holding down D and option D to test ram but I just get a command line on a non-responsive screen.

After the update that changed the bookmarks menu spacing in the most unhelpful way, I have reduced this stupid double padding between the folders with a hack - an now with the current update to 91.0.2 - it is back on!!???

Whose idiotic idea it was without giving us the OPTION of single OR double padding??

Why do we have to look online for the hacks and workarounds to remove this most idiotic and controlling change??

Please bring the single padding back NOW or I will completely switch to Chrome or simply will stop updating firefox!

You will NOT control how many folders and bookmarks I can see in my top menu bookmarks - and this idiotic double padding has removed half of them from my menu!!!

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

I'm running Debian Stretch and the packaged version of Firefox (91) runs fine but seems a bit dated. I installed ver. 104 manually and everything is fine except that there is no audio. I changed the setup Privacy and Security Autoplay to 'Allow Audio and Video' -- no audio. I've restarted in troubleshoot mode -- no audio. Other browsers, including ver. 91 of Firefox have no trouble with audio. Any ideas? On quitting I get these messages:
