I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

When Mozilla support sends a reply to my Hotmail account it contains two links. One is "This doesn't solve my problem" the other is "browse for unsolved questions and help a Firefox User". In the Nightly browser, if I click on either of these the browser freezes. No other tab can be opened; the back arrow cannot be used; the refresh symbol does not work; and Nightly can only be closed from the Task manager. Worse, if it is left open it disables other applications. While the task manager is open, if it is moved, it leaves a trail of repeated copies of itself. If Quicken is closed part of the display remains on the screen. Even using CTL+ALT+DEL to refresh the screen and asking only to open the task manager does not resolve this problem. Am I REALLY part of a Beta test or did you all just skip Alpha and give us anything that looked like it could be called a browser?

Tab navigation left and right is still showing even there is only one tab,

My suggestion is that, just show the tab navigation when the tab is full and the "+" icon should be on the side of the tab if the tab area is not full, but if it is full then that is the time that it will stick on the right side beside the tab navigation.

Please look at the attached screen shoot.

Can i have some transparency on the changelogs? Or is it just fake updates released daily? The version number is also same. No change in that. Only date is changing.

I have a DNS resolver running on my router, and I had reports from users on my network that after upgrading to nightly 77 they were no longer able to access any intranet domains, I have tested this as well and it would appear that all intranet domains are trying to do search results, this is causing issues as clients(whom I do not own or control their computer) need to access my captive portal prior to gaining internet access and their search fails.

I was running Firefox Nightly, opened about:profiles and launched a new instance with a different profile from there. At this time, the green update icon indicated there was an update in queue which was then installed right before starting the new Firefox instance, while the old instance was still running. At first everything was fine, my other profile launched, I did my work, closed it and after some more time also closed my main profile. But then when I restarted Nightly, it brought up a Mozilla Crash Report pretty much instantly... My profile is broken

I could work-around this by starting Firefox Beta which prompted me to Refresh the profile... Now I can launch Firefox again, but all the settings from about:config and my extension settings are gone. Is there any way to bring back those settings?

I made a backup of the profile before the refresh so I'm positive the data is still somewhere... However, just copying the profile.js file doesn't work, then I will get the prompt again to refresh my profile...

I installed 77.0a1 and CPU usage is through the roof. Nightly used to idle at 20-40 energy consumption units in macOS, which is a lot, but as soon as I updated it jumped to 200, and 150% cpu usage in a 4 core system. The fan is blowing at full speed, and about:performance doesn't tell me anything useful, as usual.

I need to downgrade but I can't find a catalog of older nightly builds.

I tried running in safe mode with "firefox -safe-mode", but it still crashes.

I also tried deleting my profile from "%appdata%/firefox/profiles" but that didn't help either.

Any ideas? Is there anyway I can go back one version in Firefox nightly?

Thanks!

Using the latest Nightly version which I update every day. For the last couple of weeks the tabs will crash as soon as I open Nightly unless I am in Safe Mode. That said, I do not have any add-ons or extensions enabled other than the default Mozilla ones. Running the system report, it does list 14 extensions that do show up when I simply use the menu to open the add-ons/extensions page. I am attaching my about:support info. Anyway, I wonder if it is one of these extensions that is causing the problem since being in safe mode prevents the crashes from happening. At first I thought it was a universal problem and if I simply kept updating the program it would fix the problem but since it has persisted this long I am guessing it is something unique to me.... Thanks for your help, Dan

Now with the latest Nightly update, I have my 12 previous pinned sites, but 4 random sites are added, for a total of 16 - which looks hideous. Refer to the image for more details. I can't change the no. of tiles in the activity stream, since the flag for that is gone. How do I resolve this? This completely ruined my browsing experience.

I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask this, but I've recently been dealing with something weird with regard to the update feature in Nightly.

Yesterday, I decided to check for an update on Nightly, and it started downloading. Once finished, I was prompted to restart to let the update take affect.

After waiting for a minute, I noticed nothing opening up again. I opened up Task Manager (I'm on Windows 10 Pro) and saw that both Nightly and the Nightly update service were both in the Backgrounds Processes section.

After a bit of waiting, the update process vanished, but Nightly remained no matter how much time passed.

I had to end up killing/ending the process/task. I did this twice more and it wasn't until the third attempt when I realized I was already running the latest version of nightly. Yet, Nightly, for whatever reason still attempted to receive/install an update.

I'm sure there are already similar questions like this, but I may not have come across them.

It is worth mentioning that I have both Firefox 54.0 Release (32-bit) AND Nightly 56.0a1 release installed on my system.

I'm currently running two profiles: the default is stuck with just Firefox release, and I created a separate profile for nightly.

Annoyingly, Nightly installs and initially runs with the default profile in use. I find this extremely annoying and prone to give errors.

That aside, I followed a guide on the Stack Exchange that addressed how to get Ngihtly to run with a predefined profile.

I edited the shortcut properties (in start menu folder/directory) and added to the Target field a "-p profile_name".

This was done after initial installation and it's been working since then.

All of the sudden, it stopped working. Not sure why.

Clicking on Nightly now only opens the standard/stab;e Firefox application.

What I'm most upset about is that I actually uninstalled Nightly after noticing the weird update inconsistency, and later reinstalled it.

The issue persisted and I'm about to try again.

Why did Nightly think it needed to be updated in the first place?

I can only imagine that some kind of corruption occurred and now it's getting worse.

Another last testament:

I tried refreshing the profile for nightly, and it didn't do anything.

When I uninstalled Nightly the first time, a folder was created in my Desktop which related to an old profile.

Sine I was given no instructions as to what to with that, and noticed no performance conflict when running Nightly after reinstalling, I deleted the folder.

What bug am I suffering from?
