Firefox spontaneously quits on me, multiple times a day, sometimes once an hour. I am not on the same website or doing the same tasks each time it happens. Sometimes I won't have any windows open, but when I go to use it, it's not open. I've even had windows in the background or minimized when it happens. I've had my IT person look at it, but he can't figure it out the problem. I've tried resetting FF, uninstalling and reinstalling, updating my operating system, changing my preferences, disabling my extensions, started in safe mode, etc.—but nothing works. When I go to about:crashes, the page says "No crash reports have been submitted." It's like FF doesn't even know it crashed, yet when I go to reopen it after it has, it will ask if I want to restore my session.

I am on an iMac with OS High Sierra and Firefox Quantum 61.0.2.

Someone please help. This is getting really frustrating!

When I clicked on the Firefox icon the Home page would show my standard 5 websites on the tabs. When I closed Firefox, those original websites were saved no matter what websites I had migrated to. Upon re-opening Firefox, the tabs showed my standard websites. I am running the latest Firefox on Windows 10' How can I have the tabs with my standard websites show up when I open Firefox?

when this site 'should' show left and right arrows to forward or back pictures if the user has uploaded more than one, or if you click on the camera icon it should open a new window that allows the slide show. this does neither. all i get is the fist cursor.

no issues with ebay or other sites, just gumtree. works fine in MS Edge.

I recieved a blackmail email claiming he hacked me via a porn site . Yes I am guilty of perusing the pretty ladies. He also claimed to have taken over my browser as a remote desktop and accessed my web cam. No worries there. he claims to have my phone# but is all x-ed out except for the last 2 digits they are correct and the x count is correct to include the + mark and digits for the country code. he wants me to send him bitcoins or else he is going to start sending the hacked info out to people on my contact list. I can forward the email it would help.

I just switched back to Firefox from using Chrome for many years. I used to have Mozilla and Firefox for a long time before that - am I to be sorry I switched back ??? I print the puzzle 3 times a week and having to "work around'" this is ridiculous. I use an iMac Sierra.

Why is it that when I click a link from a search engine, like google.com, Firefox always opens that link in a new tab (or window if I make that setting active). However, when I go to the website that was opened in the new tab and click on a link, voilà, no new tab. The second scenario is what I want all the time. Any suggestions?

First, all extensions were installed. Second, I ran the sync. However, some extensions wont appear/load after signing in to firefox on a different device/ same device

The following extensions do not sync :

1. Advanced profanity filter: I have added a huge list of words to be censored in the extension's preferences and then I performed the sync. However, when I sign in later, either on the same mac or a different mac, this extension wont load with all the words that were initially added. Its such a pain to add all of them again after a fresh sign in (on same device/different device). Unable to let my children use the internet in a safe manner.

2.Hoxx VPN: This too wont load after signing in to firefox on a different device or the same device

3. Web RTC leak shield: This extension wont load as well

When I use google chrome I do not face the above issues. I would love to use firefox if you could fix it. Thank you & good day!

Hi.

I was watching a YouTube video, and suddenly the tab changed to another, completely unrelated webpage. As far as I know, I am pretty sure I didn't click anything (I had just been distracted for literally a second so was re-reaching for my mouse and technically could've clicked something, but I also went back and found no links whatsoever that would reasonably lead to www.dansk.net, the site I ended up at).

I would love for this to be human error but I don't see it so there must be another explanation and I would like to get to the bottom of this to see if there's possibly some malware in the system but a scan turned up zilch.

I know I can check the pages I viewed with the History window. But is there any way I can find out how I got to said pages? Something along the lines of 'you clicked a link on this other page' or 'youtube autoplay' or 'bit.ly forwarded you to this address'

Because I think that might help in finding out what happened.

Hi. Until recently, my (saved) passwords would propagate on sites I had them saved for. This is no longer the case.

As I've read other posts with the same problem, let me just add that no, it is not the website in particular, as it is happening on all the websites (or most, as I have MANY which I've saved passwords for) I have thought to check or tried to log in to.

I REALLY do not want to reset Firefox to default again because I have add-ons/extensions, bookmarks under different folders, etc.

Any help?

But Chrome loads just quick that I hardly can see such "Looking up.." message. Tried changing Content limit to default 4, 2, and 7. Removed all Add-ons. Removed Flashplayer. Yet no help. I really want to use FF and get far away from prying chrome. Any help highly appreciated.
