Gah your tab crashed happening on version 107 frequently. Very annoying and I have gone through FFX Refresh. NO Change. Windows 10 64bit. Malwares is enabled and I have Norton 360 running. There don't seem to be any solutions listed even though more than 42 posts having this problem, some since level 88! I usually have about 4 tabs open including Google calendar and Google contacts. Sometimes selecting a link from Thunderbird email just results in a blank page with the correct URL showing but page loading not completing. At other times clicking a link in one tab results in a new tab that then hangs the same way. At that stage, clicking on the other open tabs (Calendar etc) gives the Gah message. The only way to recover seems to be to stop and start FFX. Clicking on the buttons in the error message (Close Tab / Restore Tab) does nothing at all.

A solution would be welcomed.

Why are there 8 instances of FF running in the task manager when I only have 1 browser window open? They're using enormous amount of memory and make the computer unusable. Absolutely ridiculous. If there is no solution for this I will be dumping FF. Windows 7 64 bit 8 GB memory.

I'm running ArchLinux with Xfce 4.16.

One of the lastest firefox updates has broken it on my system. It keeps crashing at random times, most of the time when I do some action, maybe press a button on a website, maybe open a new window, maybe select some text on a website... It doesn't occur always, most of the time things work fine, but, at some point, I perform an action that has worked fine the last few times, and it hangs the browser.

The easiest way I found to replicate it is by opening and closing the Downloads window. Around 15% of the times I open it, the browser stops responding completely.

I'm not sure which firefox version introduced the bug because I don't update the system so often. My last pacman updates where January-2022 and November-2022. The version from January-2022 worked fine but since the November-2022 update I've been experiencing this problem.

I've created a new profile, disabled hardware acceleration but the problem persist. I'm also not using any kind of proxy, its a clean profile.

Running it from the console only shows one message at startup, but nothing when the browser hangs.

This is the message shown at startup:

[GFX1-]: glxtest: VA-API test failed: failed to initialise VAAPI connection. [2022-12-17T23:22:27Z ERROR glean_core::metrics::ping] Invalid reason code start

But the browser can be working for half an hour after it with no problems.

Hi All,

We recently upgraded to Firefox v107 and started seeing issue where the microphone is not accessible in the iframed page (on windows and mac os). The iframed page has microphone functionality to allow our users to record audio. Both the parent and iframe share the same domain. When i try to enable the microphone nothing happens. I don't see any error messages in console when i click Record button

Any info on what's causing this? It was working on version 106.

Thanks, David

Hello, in past versions of Firefox, I was able to follow the steps on this page to set a custom HTML file on my PC as my home page for new tabs: https://peterries.net/blog/firefox-ubuntu-local-file/

I have Firefox 107.0.1 now and it's not happening. When I open the browser from scratch, I see my custom home page file. But when I open a new tab, I just see a blank screen. If I then click the Home icon on the toolbar, I do see my custom HTML page, but I don't want to have to click that button for each new tab.

Right now, in my settings, I have the URL to the page set as the custom URL for the HTML fiile, like this:

file:///home/peter/Documents/homepage/peter-home-homepage.html

That works. And I also have followed the steps on that blog post to customize my /usr/lib/firefox/autoconfig.cfg and my ../firefox/defalults/pref/autoconfig.js files. That's no longer working.

Did something in a recent version change? Is this no longer supported? Thanks for any ideas!

The entire Firefox UI freezes frequently after updating to 107. The freezes occur while navigating to a page or shortly after (e.g. clicking a link or entering a search term into the search bar). The freezes last for about 2 to 10 seconds. During the freeze the entire UI is unresponsive and does not respond to any mouse or keyboard input. However, animations like the page loading spinner where the favicon is on the tab continue to move.

Hi,

Before updating Firefox yesterday, I was able to see my 2 bookmarks folders in the Firefox toolbar. Now after updating, I need to click a button with 2 chevrons pointing right which then shows me only 1 of my bookmarks folders.

There are actually 2 folders in here, which I can see if I go to the Bookmarks menu, but clicking the chevron button only shows a single folder. However the problem is that up until yesterday, those folders were right in the toolbar itself without any chevron button.

Has there been a change in the latest version? I don't see anything about this in the release notes.

Thanks,

- Tate

On certain websites I am getting scrambled text, mostly in headings and titles, not so much in body text. I have followed several tips from other posts like mine, i.e., installed Open Sans font, but that did not do it. I turned off hardware acceleration, and cleared the cache. The only thing that did work was to start Firefox in troubleshooting mode. I only have two add-ons running, Short URL and Dashlane, I doubt they're responsible for this. Any other ideas?

Upon restart, Firefox has kept dropping (not loading) hundreds of tabs. 555 tabs, as also listed in my sessionstore, but after loading is finished, only about 330 is actually loaded of those. Previously, there have been similar issues with different sets, and loading the full set over, and over again, sometimes the full set or very close to the full set is loaded, indeed. But it is clear that there's a bug or at least a very inconsistent behaviour in the code somewhere. How can this be propely troubleshot and fixed? Happy to help. Thanks.

Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

I've been experiencing weird downloads whenever I startup firefox. My antivirus prevents the download, and says that firefox.exe is the application responsible. I will include an image of the antivirus(Kaspersky) report. Deleting and reinstalling firefox seemed to fix the problem, but it returned after sometime; even when I just used youtube on firefox(I've tried this atleast 3 different times now). I am not sure if this is caused by one of my extensions, or if there is something else I've done to cause this. I'd just like to know if there is a way to fix it?
