I have tried clearing the cache, troubleshooting, and get the same result in safe mode, and reverting back to Firefox default settings. And I still get the same result. I've attached an image of the error message.

When I upload an image with Firefox, it typically shows a red tint. I've seen similar reports from decades ago so I disabled `gfx.color_management.mode` in `about:config`, but that didn't help, even after restarting the browser and the computer. I disabled a couple of related settings, but that also didn't help. What else could I try?

Firefox freezes when handling tabs

Hello everyone. Since installing Linux Mint in May 2023 I have been having this issue with Firefox.

Description of issue: When I switch between (or drag) tabs in a Firefox window, the whole window becomes unresponsive, with the last tab I was switching from still in front. Often the contents of the window start to flash (disappear and reappear, leaving a black backgground) every 2 seconds. I can drag the window around, scroll, minimize it, but it is impossible to give any input in any tab. The only action somewhat possible to do inside the window is bring other tabs in front, it is still quite hard for the input to register, and if it does, it takes 10+ seconds. The issue goes away if I close the specific Firefox window, or if I manage to select and drag one tab out of the frozen window into its own new window. Then everything works as intended, like nothing ever happened.

I can reliably cause the freeze-up in a short time by holding CTRL+TAB and drag one tab to change the order while firefox cycles through the tabs in the open window.

While the window is frozen, the rest of the desktop is responsive as normal, even other Firefox windows. If I try to interact with the frozen window I can rarely see spikes of CPU usage. RAM stays at normal usage levels, far from being full.

What I have tried so far that has had no effect on the appearance of the issue:

1) Disabling all extensions i have

2) Run in troubleshooting mode

2) "Create a new places database" as suggested [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding#w_fi...]

3) Disabled hardware acceleration

4) Creaing a new firefox user profile

5) Use "Refresh Firefox" from the troubleshooting page

6) Use the Flatpak version of firefox

7) Reinstall firefox

Here is my system information

I'm using a new PC with Windows 11 and find that I, inadvertently close Firefox with 16-20 open tabs. Most of the time when I reopen FF, the tabs are still there, as expected. Sometimes, the browser opens with just a new home page and the pinned and other tabs have closed. I can sometimes see the 16ish tabs in history and reopen them. More recently, I find that they are not in history as a number of tabs so I have to set them up again. This rarely happened on my old PC and if it did I would have bookmarked a group of open tabs that I used regularly.

The failsafe FF General setting is as follows: Startup, Open previous windows and tabs.

I don't know how I can stop losing my open Tabs but if I was able to bookmark all the open tabs to be used in case of a problem I would feel more secure.

How do I bookmark ALL or several my open tabs?

I have read through all 3 of the following posts linked below on this issue, and cant make it out.

I am trying to move the find bar to the top of firefox. Tried the really long codes suggested, and the short ones. Yes, I enabled "true" in the config settings. Added the chrome folder and text file, I think in the right section. Restarted firefox lots of times upon each code I tried, still not working.

Any ideas? thanks!

My ISP had provided the IPv6 service, edge/chrome/vivaldi are all IPv6 first and working well. Only firefox insists use IPv4, although it could also pass the IPv6 test on https://test-ipv6.com, and the internal test on https://detectportal.firefox.com/success.txt?ipv6 It leads to some webpage extremely slow, even could not be accessed.

I've tried privacy mode, but the problem is still there. IPv6 in about:config is enabled, all related options are default. Is this a bug, or if there is any way could fix it by some special settings?

Waiting for your help, thanks.

Firefox use to keep me logged into Asana. But after deleting my browser cache a while back, it no longer does. Even though it still keeps me logged in to other sites I go to.

I have already tried to get help with this on Asana's help forum and a computer help group on FB. As well as from researching on google. I have tried everything they told me to do and it still isn't keeping me logged into Asana. I am completely baffled as to what it stopped keeping logged in. But I know it had to do with deleting my cache because it did it right after that when I tried to log back into Asana. It never kept me logged in again.

When I deleted my browser cache I made sure to not check the one that said it would log me out of website if I check it. I didn't delete that, I just deleted the other stuff that was in the gb range. So I don't know why every time I delete my cache it still logs me out of all website anyway even though I uncheck that.

Yesterday I reset firefox back to its default settings, but that didn't help either.

Any ideas what else I could try before I uninstall firefox and reinstall it. I have backed up my bookmarks, but the last time I had to import my bookmarks when I got a new computer it did not import them correctly and it made a mess out of my bookmarks and didn't even save my browser toolbar stuff. So reinstalling Firefox is my last option.

I have Firefox set to ask me where to download files that I want to download. It works for normal download links, but when I'm using my credit card company site's PDF viewer to look at a statement and I click on the download icon or link in the upper-left, it simply downloads the PDF (to my chosen "Save files to" folder in Settings). Is there a current way to change this behavior? Is this something that the website's code determines, overriding my Firefox setting?

Everytime I go to play games on my laptop I close Firefox for the extra resources and when I'm done I open it right back up, I have done this for YEARS but this time it didn't restore my session. I thought it would be as easy as the last time where I'd go click the Restore Session button but it isn't there so I spend two hours looking for solutions and found nothing. I don't know how this happened nor do I understand how this could happen in the first place, my Firefox hasn't crashed in months and I had already closed and re-opened it several time today.

I have noticed a bug with how the Firefox icon appears when launched in the Windows 11 taskbar when the never group option is enabled. When Firefox is launched and is the only application open in the taskbar, there is no label present next to the icon like other programs have when launched. There is the little line underneath the icon though indicating it is launched but that is it. As soon as I open another application though, the label will also appear for Firefox. This is only a minor annoyance but is definitely as bug at least for me and should be pretty easy to fix. I will attach screenshots of the behavior. In the first screenshot, you can see that Firefox is open but has no Text label like it is supposed to. The second screenshot is as soon as I open a second application.

I am on Windows 11 Home 23H2 Build 22631.2792 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22681.1000.0 Firefox Version: 120.0.1
