I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Hello,

I can't order the add-on icons on the toolbar.

1) I have more add-ons than I can fit on the toolbar, and 2) the overflow menu does not display all the icons for all the add-ons that I have installed.

So, in the toolbar customization menu, I can not place the icons where I want them on the toolbar because I can't drag them there when they are not shown. See the picture I took of the screen. The first picture shows the customization menu. The overflow menu is visible, but does not show all the icons that should be there (see the second picture). The second picture from the normal screen (not the toolbar customization screen) and shows the all the icons of all the add-ons I have installed that appear when I click on "More tools" in the top right hand part of the screen. Part of the icons is on the toolbar, part is in the overflow menu.

So, the problem is that I can't re-order the icons by dragging them from the overflow menu to the place on the toolbar where I would like them to be (e.g. to group related add-ons).

Is this an error made by me or an error in the program.

If possible, I would like to have all my icons visible, not partially hidden away in the overflow menu. Is it possible to have two or more rows of icons visible?

Please, help. Thank you.

After the latest Firefox update my Bixolon printer no longer prints receipts out of our Lightspeed POS system. It will print receipts if I am using Chrome or MS Edge so it is a Firefox problem.

The options page and addons pages are almost completely unreadable.

For several weeks they have rendered as white text on a very light gray background.

I thought that this was a temporary bug that would be cleaned up in the usual way.

Using 78.4.0esr on Windows.

Is there any fix for this?

It is there whether or not I have my usual theme which I have used for several years now, change to an alternative theme or turn off themes altogether. In safe mode the screens are sometimes usuable but that requires turning off all addons. Doing the same without going into safe mode has no effect on this.

Any advice?

Hi, i recently have a issue, where most of the addons don't show the content of their defined popup.

I do the following sequence.

- open firefox - add a addon - add it to the toolbar - click on the icon to access its popup

The popup is then opened and the outline of it's size is most likely correctly calculated, but the content is missing.

The reference Addons are passff, with no Content SakaKey, with an partial rendering HTTPSEverywhere, with the full content and the expected behaviour.

I tried to reset the browser via the about:support page, no change. I restarted in safe mode. That was kind of pointless, because without addons, there are no icons to click at^^.

I created a fresh profile, also no change. So i downloaded the latest nightly, started with a fresh profile, and installed one addon, still not working.

I fickled with the browser-style property in the manifest.json of passff, and set it to true, but again it still shows no content.

What is most likely missing on the shared data, i run Ubuntu 20.04 with i3 as a window manager.

Has anyone a idea what i am missing?

Please bring back "exceptions" to security blocks.

We are being forced to use alternate browsers due to lack of connection exceptions. I could bring up and use a site, but could NOT cancel a monthly recurrent charged membership due to FF connection "security" impositions.

I had to use Microsoft Edge to stop my credit card from being charged.

When you do not allow exceptions, you are absolutely dictating what we are "allowed" to connect to, as well as forcing the use of other browsers.

If some people are too stupid to have internet security, and too stupid to know better than to go to websites they do not know to be secure, and make an exception anyway, So be it on them. The rest of us do not want to be handicapped, having to jump through hoops to complete our business.

The identity of this web site or the integrity of this connection cannot be verified

Popups appears many times and can be eliminated by clicking X (close) on the message. Usually about 10-20 of these appear behind the browser page. I do not see the message until I close the browser. I have tried every suggestion from many sources and can not rid the problem.

One suggestion was to change the wording on Firefox Certificate Manager deleting BUILTIN OBJECT TOKEN. I can not find access to try this method.

I have tried to delete certificates that look suspicious and they reload when you open the Fire Fox Browser.

All of the certificate popups are from sites I do not visit.

Image attached. Any help is much appreciated, Todd
