When I try to use the sign in through google function (such as the popup created by soundcloud or third party clients, like the Riot Games launcher), as well as just signing into google normally, the page prompting me for my email loads fine. However, when I provide my email, regardless of account, loading the prompt for my password takes a very long time, ~1-2 minutes. The page just spins infinitely, doesn't show any considerable usage in firefox's task manager, and doesn't give any errors in the process. The problem doesn't happen in another web browser, such as chrome. What's strange is that, AFAIK, the only two processes affected are the google login, and amazon checkout. I can hit the checkout button on amazon, but the page will simply load eternally. If I look at amazon through other means, such as my phone, I can see that the order I just checked out HAS been created and paid for, but firefox is caught on something and never loads the order complete page. Other logins and loading processes are not affected. Some (I have been trying to fix this for days and cannot remember all) of the troubleshooting steps I've taken are- -Manually removing all extensions -Disabling Window's Defender's browser protection -Running Firefox in safe mode -Completely refreshing firefox, wiping all settings, cookies, cache, and logins -Disabling tracking protection (although the indicator shield shows no activity on google's sites) -Double checking the cross-site cookie protocol (I've had the automatic five-exception set up, and have never been prompted about it before -Given the nature of the sites with issues (google, youtube, and amazon) I even checked for evidence of the Trojan mentioned here to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-show-spinning-wheel-never-finish-load

As someone that uses the command line terminal a lot, I constantly find myself pressing the "tab" button on my keyboard when typing a URL in the address bar to accept the current suggestion and move to the next segment. For example:

  1. I want to go to www.example.com/segment1/segment2
  2. I'll start typing "exa" and since I visit this site a lot, Firefox helpfully completes example.com
  3. I would like to press "tab" on my keyboard to have Firefox complete example.com/ then I can type "seg" and Firefox could complete it to "example.com/segment1

I know I can do this by pressing the right arrow key, but that requires me to lift my right hand off to press it. I would like to be able to easily do this with the "tab" key which my pinky can quickly press. Pressing "tab" currently, has Firefox pick some complete url which I don't want, i.e. www.example.com/segmentA/segmentB

I recently got the latest version of windows 11 to go with the latest version of firefox. I play streaming movies on several apps with the sound working. all apps that use sound work, except for one. Firefox will pay the sound for a couple seconds and go silent. For now I am using chrome, which allows the sound to work on all of my streaming videos and movies (netflix, amazon, etc.). I would prefer to use firefox, but will unable to do so unless I can get the sound working again. I updated my sound card drivers and my video drivers. Thanks

A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.

I am using Firefox and other browsers to attempt to download files containing multiple spaces in the filename, but only Firefox is condensing the multiple spaces down to a single space when downloading. I've seen this in another support request, dated June of 2021, but there was no resolution posted. Any help would be appreciated. I can see the app displaying the file correctly, and when moving the file among the different stops in the app, the spaces are replaced by the '+' char, so as to keep track of the spaces. However, as soon as it lands on the download option, it retains only a single space. Thanks in advance.

I enjoy Firefox, however I've recently realized that hackers are using the Firefox browser to attack and enter my system, despite a firewall and VPN and even in private browser. I've been forced to cease use of the Firefox browser and decided to bring this to your attention after realizing that this surely will become widespread if not already. Is Firefox aware of such attacks and if so what are you doing about it and when do you think I will be able to safely use your browser again? Also I'm open to explore any suggested setting that may help with the security of your browser. Thanks.

Firefox now sometimes seems to hang on some favourite sites: Task Manager reveals up to 24 tabs/windows open (the number in parentheses after the app name) and Disk C is 100% active. It can stay this way for ten minutes with no change on the monitor and mouse clicks do nothing. If you kill Firefox via Task Manager and try to restart, you can get a splash screen that it's still running and do I want to close it. Sure enough, there's seven line items for Firefox in Task Manager. I use Trend Micro as anti-virus software but I can't figure out what the problem is. Any ides?

I always can switch browser but i love fire fox syncing thing that's why im trying not to shift. But, if Mozilla won't fix my problem then i had to shift it. some days ago like 6months ago or long ago mozilla fixed firefox video playback by a update and it was really great and worked for me. 720p was working really fine. but now on recent update... it really lags too much.

2. fire fox becoming heavy, we all know chrome is memory hungry and uses very much ram, but i compared firefox to chrome before it was true firefox used less ram then chrome. but nowadays firefox uses much ram then chrome which is really wierd so fix it aswell.

I found out now that it only happens when "Open previous windows and tabs" is active in the settings! If I deactivate the setting, the startup works as it should.

I would like to start with multiple tabs, is there any way to get this problem under control?

These days web pages come with all kinds of cr@p; so, at times you need to just get all the links inside the page to parse/eyeball them. What I do is grab the "page source" and/or use "Link Gopher". I have been noticing lately that they don't work anymore. Why?
The problem seems to relate to javascript generated pages. When you try to see the source all you see is some javascript one liner.
Of course, firefox must have a way to show the source since it shows to you the actual page unencrypted.
Which settings in about:config should you change in order to be able to "go to the source" again?
