Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

Dear Friends,

For almost a month now I am unable to use Firefox - on startup it crashes giving the error message "Gah. Your tab has just crashed" I have tried every method/suggestions I found on the net. As per my Norton 360 & Malwarebytes Antimalware my m/c seems to be clean. Also from Help if I try to restart Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, it closes but never start up on its own. It needs to be manually started. Also in about:support page the about:plugins link doesn't work.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

I am attaching a screenshot of the error message. I am using version 88.0.1

I use the session restore option, but when I open a new firefox window (by detaching a tab) and forget to close last the window with most tabs, the restored session is the single tab that I detached. This has happened a couple of times, but I can't remember exactly how to solve it, just that there was an action that would 'pop out' the previous session, like opening a new window and closing the last tab there. any tips?

I'm not sure if this problem arose with the latest Firefox upgrade (I'm running MacOS 10.14.6 on an older MacbookPro) or has just appeared after a few days of use -- I think it's the latter. But I can no longer rearrange the sequence of tabs in a window, an absolutely essential feature. There's a contextual menu choice that gives me the option of moving a tab to the beginning, end or a new window, but that only helps in ~10% of situations. What gives??

I have two problems since installing Win 10 update KB5003637 on June 11. FIRST, I get the "Firefox is not your default browser" dialog box every time I open Firefox. Windows Settings shows that Firefox IS my default browser. I have restored Windows default (Edge) and re-set to Firefox, but I still get the "not default browser" message.

I am unable to do funds transfers between my bank accounts and it tells me I have "no accounts are available of this transaction." The "From" and "To" fields are unavailable. I used to be able to do this on Firefox with no issues; however this seems to be affected by the latest browser update. I tried deleting my history, cookies, cached data, etc. as well as refreshing Firefox; yet I get the same result.

I called the bank and they said there are no issues with my accounts. I logged into my account using my bank's phone app and also Chrome, and both of those worked. (see attached screenshots)

Any ideas on how to fix this?

It used to be the case that, while scrolling, after taking my fingers away from the mousepad, that the pages I am viewing in Firefox would continue to move down, slowly coming to a halt. Now, instead, it comes to a sudden halt the moment I stop active scrolling, which honestly makes scrolling down long pages take a lot longer and I really just don't like how it feels. This only recently started happening, does anyone know how to make scrolling go back to the old way where it would keep moving in the direction you sent it in for a short while following?

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

I'm using the new version 89 of Firefox. Often, when I'm reading an article from a website, the screen suddenly zooms in, the letters become huge, and the page no longer fits on my computer screen. Am I doing something to cause this? It's really annoying and it has me wondering if I should abandon Firefox after all these years for something else.

I don't see an option to restore previous session any more.

did some googling and found a reference to checking a box in option

it said that then it would be automatic.

so I check that and I'm waiting to see what's going to happen in future: it didn't make my previous session come back this time.

so the question is: Is this right? We must check that option and that's it? No way to go back to the old version method?

This is plea for an immediate fix from anyone, anywhere that can do so.

FF update just done today June 14th, 2021 as effectively cut off any user with less than perfect depth, color, or acuity of vision. Whether using natural or lightbulbs or fireflies.

It also threw out most of the screen/toolbar settings!

This "upgrade" is going to drive me away from FF asap because neither of us can no longer read the screen!!!

Its the lack of contrast. It's the new, much smaller, default font size. And lack of demarcation to the tabs as they align with one another side by side. Like a snow-blind whiteout.

It also threw out most of the toolbar itself and altered many of the FF "setting" selections that were previously our defaults or elections.

These are basic attributes which the "upgrade" to FF has just unilaterally changed.

Now, as the user I have to 1) seek out and 2) comprehend more complex instructions like "about: config" and jockey between that and M'soft windows settings??? And then hope I get it right????

FYI I did try via another user-help response. Some relief there with font size, but it looks like a fun house mirror w/ weird size toolbar and onscreen font size. And it took me an hour and alot of holding my breath to see if I got it jiggered okay.

Or seek out and try out any number of color font/screen themes which might work well??-- if I were my grandkids gaming all night under the bedcovers.

Folks have graciously put in the time, effort and creativity to make various pretty and graphically appealing themes. Scrolled through pages and pages and have loaded over a dozen try-outs, but unusable/impractical.

I am not a expert user, dont want to become one, and if FF goes the way of the buffalo and the "vcr" programming  (haha!) then so be it.

However, you have always had a great product, and we want you to continue to be successful!!

Why oh why is it fouled up so badly?? Please don't make me switch to gawd-awful Edge or other browser after being a loyal FF user for years!

I had to reconfigure the entire toolbar setup this afternoon so less- computer-capable, and more importantly less visually-able spouse could use his few desired websites. Wasted valuable hours on unnecessary and exhausting task.

Am going to attempt the revert to older version of FF as stated in another thread just so I can get back to work and keep my visually and computer challenged spouse happy!

Rarely write in to help sheets, forums or social sites, but this absolutely must be addressed!

FF staff PLEASE fix or at least make the former version more obviously, and readily available!!

Sincerely, loyal users
