Firefox came preinstalled as snap package on ubuntu 18.04, but has been giving trouble since

I'm running through problems when downloading files:


   The open with dialog application does not see most applications, in particular it doesn't see evince nor libreoffice. The dropdown defaults to "Url Handler Script (default)", which does nothing with my files.
If I choose to open the file with firefox (say a pdf file) a blank page appears

All these options work with chrome though..

The only way I can view a downloadable file is by saving it somewhere in my home directory and then open it which is a pain!


Obviously snap firefox doesn't access anything beyond thatI've successfully installed Firefox as a snap package (done by default by installing it through Ubuntu's "software center"). It does work, and give me a more recent version of Firefox than the one available through APT.

I'm running through problems when downloading files, though:

   Saving them in /tmp/ does not work, since the snap version of Firefox uses a different filesystem than the one of the host computer, hence Firefox and non-snap applications see different content in /tmp/.
   The open with dialog application does not see most applications, in particular it doesn't see evince nor libreoffice, which I've installed through APT. The dropdown defaults to "Url Handler Script (default)", which apparently does nothing with my files.
   If I save a downloaded file, the open containing folder button in the downloads list does not work. I'm guessing that it tries to open nautilus, but fails to do so because nautilus is a non-snap application.I've successfully installed Firefox as a snap package (done by default by installing it through Ubuntu's "software center").

Both Firefox and Chrome aren’t staying open for more than a few minutes. No matter what site I have open or however many tabs they crash. My other apps are working, my internet is stable as well as my hardware. I’ve already restarted the computer, uninstall and reinstalled Firefox, cleaned my temp folders, cleaned up my disk and cleared my browser history.

『firefox』『Windows』『ドライバー』『セキュリティソフト』それぞれの更新は問題なし セーフモードでも頻繁にクラッシュが発生いたします。 firefoxのリフレッシュを行い、ブックマークやプラグインなども見直しましたが 改善されません。 また、同PC上の別ブラウザ(chromeなど)ではクラッシュなどの問題は発生いたしません。

解決策がございましたら、ご教授いただけますと幸いです。

To start, I am using Windows 10 and Firefox 75.0. I have recently reinstalled Firefox and have run into a problem that makes the program unusable. When launching the browser after installation, it will never open and instead get stuck endlessly closing and opening a process in task manager. It is also not possible to terminate the process without either restarting my computer or uninstalling, as it will give an error saying the process does not exist anymore. This also seems to open and close consent.exe in the system32 files endlessly. I've tried multiple previous versions of Firefox in order to try and mitigate this problem, but all of them encounter the same result. I've uninstalled, deleted all of my profiles, cleared all files in appdata, and even tried deleting registry files related to the browser, but the problem persists. A similar problem seems to have been encountered by another user, but their problem seemed to fix itself (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1589424). Firefox also doesn't seem to produce any errors with this issue, so I am unsure of what to do.

EDIT: As of this writing I figured out the problem. It turns out my user account control panel had been disabled and was trying to launch itself to verify permissions. My user account did not have full control over the application, hence UAC trying to activate. Changing my account permissions solved this problem.

I'm using a completely clean (reinstalled) version of firefox. I'm not logged into a profile. I'm still having the same problem.

If I go onto twitter for the first time, it loads fine and I can move around pages.

As soon as I leave the site, then return, none of the internal twitter timelines load - I get the twitter message 'something has gone wrong'.

If I delete all my cookies and revisit twitter, it works. But again, if I leave the site and come back immediately, the problem comes back and nothing loads.

Anyone experienced this/know what I can do?

Thanks
