On 7/9/19 when trying to sign into a website, which I've used for years, after I enter my credentials and click 'sign in' FF downloads "webgate.dll" and does not proceed. I am able to successfully log in using Chrome or IE. I most recently accessed this website via FF last week - no changes to extensions since then.

Using FF Quantum 67.0.4 64 bit

Pop-ups should aready be disabled. I've gone into about:config and tried all the settings that seem to be relevent.

This is about annoying enough to start shopping for other browsers.

After a recent automatic update my old problem with Firefox Quantum came back. Every time I open Firefox browser I get multiple 4-6 firefox.exe running in the background processes. When I go into details and try to end process tree it crashes my browser. When I open Firefox it starts all over again. I have gone into about:preferences and

   De-select ‘Use recommended performance settings’
   Set Content process limit value to ‘1’ from its default value

I have also gone into about:config and switched browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false. Still have the same problem.

One of the reasons I prefer Firefox to Chrome is that when I right-click on a link, I can open the link in a new tab.

I usually read news in Chrome because, on some sites, I open 20 new tabs without moving from the main news page. I can then move to the tabs, read one, close it, move to the next, etc.

I would like to move my news reading to Firefox, but I would like to be able to choose whether (or not) to open a new tab at the time the tab is being opened.

Is this possible?

I always have two tabs set to open on startup. Just recently, the tabs switched to two separate windows, each with the two tabs. When I close one, both close. I don't know why this happened , though undoubtedly I did something and forgot. I am not especially technical. I cannot get FF to go back to the single instantiation with the two tabs. Any help would be gratefully received.

I just noticed. this happens whenever I open a tab, it becomes a new window as well as being added as a tab.

I am having a problem trying to see and save a GIF image. As you know, if you click on a GIF on Twitter, you will just get a black screen. The problem is easy to solve by using a 3rd party site like EZGIF. But what if the image was uploaded to DM?

I have a GIF file that was given to me through Direct Message, and just like before, I get a black screen. However, because the post was sent to me privately, I have no idea how to save it. Unlike public posts, Direct Messages do not have a singular link that EZGIF can detect (eg. public posts have the "status" word in the URL, DMs do not), The only way I can now see GIFs of any kind on Twitter is to see them in my mobile device, an Apple iPod Touch or iPod Mini, but as far as I know, none of them allow me to save the GIF, only view it.

How can I see a GIF file that is on my DM, and save it while overcoming the dreaded Twitter glitch?

For a few months I have been using a userChrome.css customisation which displayed a URL at the beginning of each drop down autocomplete result for the URL Bar (normally a useless page title is displayed).

Here is the thread where I got the script from (thanks for your help, jscher2000): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1256581

Today I upgraded to Firefox 68 and it stopped working. Autocomplete results now display website title first, which is completely unreadable and pointless.

My userChrome.css definitely works, because if I add the following line at the end:

  • { color: red !important; }

then the text becomes red.

Unfortunately changing the order of autocomplete results so that the URL is first, has no effect.


Here is the entire content of my userChrome.css

I have an embedded font on my website that I use for the header, and it displays fine. I have a development copy of the website on my hard disk, and that displayed fine too until Firefox 68.0; but now it uses the second font in my list, instead of the first.

So: some bug in the code of the copy on my disk, I thought. But when I open it in Safari, Chrome or Brave, it displays correctly.

The W3C CSS validation service finds no error in the code.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

After updating to v68, Firefox is stuck on a new tab and not doing anything. Its not possible to open any website. Its not possible to open a new tab (Have tried refresh,uninstall,etc). Upon investigating I found that we have a policy in Symantec Endpoint Protection that disables all exe downloads from all browsers. If I turn that policy off, Firefox works fine. But we can't do that for security reasons. So my question is what has changed in v68 (v67 works fine) that is trying to download an exe under the hood? We have no plugins, extensions, themes, addons installed whatsoever.

I put a streamable link to help identify the problem properly.

I switched to Firefox a couple of years ago when Quantum came out. I'm satisfied with it but the main reason I keep using it is grounded on ethics rather than usability (which is fine for me but won't win the stone hearts of more cynical users :-) ). I had this sort of superficial opinion: "Chrome is better, but I don't want to use it." Today I wanted to give Chromium another try. I thought about what it is that makes it better and figured out it almost completely boils down to the star icon functionality: I'm a heavy bookmarks user and Firefox makes me slow, compared to Chrome.

First, it doesn't use the latest location in which I saved a bookmark as a default (this was also requested, not by me, on http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&p=14770920). I often add a row of pages to a single bookmarks folder, but rather than selecting the tabs and adding all of them at once by dragging and dropping as Firefox allows, I prefer to check them on by one: add one, close it, take a look at the one that follows, either close it right away or add it, and so on. In Chrome it's done with a couple of shortcuts in quick succession, in Firefox its much clunkier because one needs to set the directory every time.

Then a really annoying and sort of antiquated-feeling characteristic of Firefox's star icon menu and bookmarks sidebar is that type-ahead motion in it (when I type the first letters of the name I want to move to) breaks on spaces. This kind of motion is the only one that is practical once one has a few hundred directories, but if I have a list of directories like ... "The Rolling Stones", "The Who"... I can only match up to "The" then I'm on my own.

These flaws slow down the menial job of adding bookmarks a lot. Other things that could bring an improvement in my opinion would be an "Open in folder" context menu item for bookmarks search results, and the possibility to restrict searches to defined folders. I think what I've described should be done natively and not by extensions.

Keep up the good work and thanks for what you do.

This just started happening a few days ago. At random, clicking a link in another program to open it in Firefox will just cause my entire system to freeze for anywhere between 15 and 30 seconds. It's not instantaneous, but about 5 seconds after I click the link, any program that I try to click or interact with will freeze up and become entirely unresponsive, including Explorer. After those 20-30 seconds are up, everything will go back to normal and any actions that I made (clicks, key presses, etc) will happen all at once.


I can't open task manager, can't ctrl+alt+del, the system doesn't even respond if another device tries to connect or ping it. It's the most thorough "freeze" that I can imagine, all caused by clicking a link that opens in Firefox.


I tried disabling all addons, didn't work. Tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't work. Tried the various "hang/crash" fixes on Mozilla's website, didn't work. I honestly have no idea what went wrong that this is happening all of a sudden.

I'm a Firefox Developer Edition user. After upgrading my Firefox to 69.0b1, I see a problem about network and extension:

In the same network, the case when the browser stuck at loading the page content has been more frequent (especially on script-rich sites like Twitter). At that case, the extension menu is irresponsive (which means that when I click on it, it only shows a pop-up with nothing in it). Closing all loading tabs doesn't solve this. After a long time after the loading starts, the tabs suddenly continue to load and the extension pages come back responsive.
