I was away from my Windows 10 computer and when I came back Firefox was gone and replaced by a notice that it had crashed and would need to restart. Restart could not proceed because Firefox was still running. I went to the Task Manager to end the Firefox process but the Task Manager was not able to stop it. I had to reboot the computer to end Firefox. You know a crash is real bad when the OS can't even terminate it. Just wanted to see if someone could pass this along to the developers as the feedback page does not appear to be working. Thanks

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Windows Home 10 20H2

I have about 700+ bookmarks, which I like to access from the Bookmarks sidebar. There are of course even more items in my browsing history. My issue is, that Firefox reacts rather "extremely" to scrolling on the touchpad. Even when I two-finger-drag "very very slowly", multiple items just "fly by" at bewildering speed. It's impossible for me to perform a precise scroll action.

It not only affects the sidebars that but also the "Library" window (both left and right lists). Strangely, the actual webpages scroll normally. Text area fields on web forms with many lines of text also scroll precisely.

In about:config, all scroll- and mouse-wheel-related settings are set to default values. I also tried with a completely new profile (after importing the bookmarks). That also didn't help.

The last time I updated Firefox I had such a bad time I swore never to update it again, however yesterday an addon I use couldn't work without updating. So I bit the bullet and did. I've been regretting it ever since. At best it works slightly slower than my old version which was 61.0.1. At worst I miss the days of internet explorer.

The most common issues are 1. White Wheel: When I swap tabs or open a new one I often get a spinning white wheel. This can last anywhere from seconds to at least ten minutes. I've asked around and tried everything suggested, nothing has gotten rid of it.

2. Scripts breaking: This started later on after installing it. Almost any time I refresh a tab or open a new one a script in some other tab breaks. At least twice I was just watching a video in one tab, not even touching the computer and a script breaks in another tab.

Please, I just want my browser to run properly. WITHOUT having to sacrifice my settings/history/bookmarks/addons

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

I have to say that this has been the most frustrating issue that I have been unable to find any kind of help with.

I am running W7 on this laptop (I do not know more than that), even W10 on my desktop, both with the most updated version of mozilla.

I have removed the adobe flash player, and now I cannot get any videos to play, like on CNN and other various sites. I just get the spinning wheel of nothing. It seems that only you tube is working, barely.

Am I missing something, is this open html5 crap supposed to just take over and everything will be okay.

Maybe someone, somewhere can post a layman's explanation on what is going on. If there are issues, how to fix them. I don't need anymore information telling me how to remove because it is dead. What I need is what is replacing it, how does it work, and where and what can I do to fix issues.

Searching for help here on this subject is just tedious. I get over 3000 replies, or what ever they are called here, but just nothing on an explanation of what is changed and or how it works, more like doesn't work.

What do I need to do in order to be able to watch/play videos online.

Any help would be very, very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, for the past week i've been tackling this problem and it's driving me nuts. I've basically replaced FF with Chrome at this point, because I can't use it for work.

Firefox refuses to print, no matter which printer I select, and even if I try to print to .pdf using Microsoft Print to PDF (or other, 3rd party ones, I tried). Other programs and browsers print just fine, it's only FF that refuses, and it refuses to do so with any printer, physical or virtual.

The error I get is a window titled "Print Preview Error" and the error message is "An error occured while printing" (see attached image). For what it's worth, when I go to the menu and select Print, I get the print preview just fine, it's only after I move on to the printer selection and click on Print that I get this error.

I've followed all the steps from: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-printing-problems-firefox as well as: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problems_printing_web_pages#Reset_printer

And I've also tried using Safe Mode while doing that, as suggested here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/854093

I hope you can help! I've been a Mozillian for more than 20 years, contributor, and volunteer, but this is making my work impossible and I'm forced to abandon FF due to this problem.

Hello,

When my Openconnect VPN is on, Firefox takes very long time to open links from outside its own window: ie links opened with xdg-open in Linux (Ctrl+Click). If Openconnect is Off, links open almost instantly as expected.

Here's /etc/resolv.conf when Openconnect is Off. And here /etc/resolv.conf when Openconnect is On: search contains 11 internal domains. Environment: - KDE Plasma 5.20.5 - Firefox 84.0.2 - xdg-utils 1.1.3 - networkmanager-1.26.4 - networkmanager-openconnect-1.2.6 - openconnect-8.09

System proxy settings: No Proxy

What I have tried: - Start Firefox in Safe-mode (no effect) - Explicitly setting Proxy to None / System Default in FF settings (no effect) - Opening links resolvable only inside VPN and just google.com (no effect) Only turning Off Openconnect helps so far. I suspect it's got to do with name resolution (maybe routing as well?), but have no conclusive evidence. Btw, Chrome is not affected by this behavior.

Thank you

Icons for bookmarks imported from Chrome are not displaying properly either on Bookmarks Toolbar or in folders

  • Windows 10 Professional PC (updated fully)
  • Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit)
  • Chrome Version 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Here is what I have done: 1. Installed Firefox (new installation) 2. Imported Chrome bookmarks - only 1% of bookmark icons display properly. All others are the segmented globe icon. 3. Installed DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, AdBlock Plus and Emoji extensions 4. Installed EverSync 18.5.7 5. Tested disabling all extensions: no improvement.

I display icons only on the toolbar to maximize accessibility of often used bookmarks, so this issue is important for me to resolve if I want to use Firefox regularly.

This is for my office PC. I do not have this issue at home running Windows 10 Home on desktop PC and laptop PC.

Thanks much,

Hello!

I can't use Netflix on my old Windows 7 machine. I'm sure my computer can handle the transcode but just in case - it runs an i3-2330M with 6GB of RAM. When I hover over a title, I can see the preview but when I click it, I end up with an error message. I run the latest Firefox version and have also restarted to check if it works but alas, to no avail.

I have attached an image below. Also, just in case, I have done the adjustments to Firefox's configuration from here.

All help would be appreciated!

PS. Not sure if this helps, but Firefox couldn't play Spotify either! When I open the web Spotify player, I can see my playlists and such, but when I click on any song/album/playlists's play button, it doesn't respond at all! I have resorted to using the app, but am mentioning just in case if it helps figure out the problem/for other users having the same trouble as me.
