For the last 6 months, or more, Firefox is slow to launch and load content (until "X" icon becomes "refresh").

I've been working more diligently on this in the last few days. The first thing I did was to run full antivirus and malware scans. NOTHING was discovered. I then found some articles about the problem, the highlights of which presented 3 major points:

  • That a dense cache could be influential,
   >> I've always made it a point of clearing cache every week or 2 anyway. That
  • Add-ons could slow things down,
   >> I uninstalled mt LastPass and AdBlock Plus add-ons (the only 2 I've ever used). And finally, that
  • Security software often instigates scans on browser-related files when FF is launched.
   >> When I got started this morning, I reset my Malwarebytes Antimalware NOT to start with Windows.

I launched Firefox again after restarting the machine, and there was little improvement. It takes 45 to 60 seconds, now, from the FF icon click until the window comes up and the home page (Yahoo, for me) fully loads. Meaning that the 'stop loading "X" ' becomes the 'refresh "left-loop". That's down from 2 minutes a few days ago, but it still seems to me that that's still much longer than it should take.

Please be so kind as to share any thoughts you might have for speeding Firefox up for me.

Thank you!

Greetings. I had to compose this using the Notes app on my Samsung S9+ because when I type into a "comments" box and select a word based on a partial spelling the word fails to appear. There is a brief flash of something but nothing sticks unless I fully type each word and not select the word from the choices offered. This does not happen if I use the Samsung browser. Very frustrating. Best wishes to you all. Take care. Sincerely, Terry

Using Firefox, I cannot look at the reviews on Costco.com; using Chrome, no problem. Recent problem. I want Firefox, NOT Chrome.

Similar, but perhaps unrelated: On MSN.com, I find videos offered by CNN. The present video never finishes loading and I canot watch it. If I skip that, I will see the next ad, and then the next video will run. A bit frustrating because I can never see the video that caught my eye in the first place. (I cannot get back to it.)

Thanks for reading; thanks for any suggestions.

When viewing extensions in the overflow menu, items become cutoff. Sometimes a scrollbar will be displayed, allowing you to view the rest. At other times, you are not able to navigate to the other information at all. I tried to use ctrl + (+ or -) to try and zoom out, but only the size was able to become bigger or smaller, not the scaling.

Greetings! Im a daily (and nightly) user of firefox nightly, both on Windows10 and Android. The last few months i have had a recurring issue when using youtube on my PC. No problems on android.

When i start the browser, and enter youtube, it works fine for a handful of videos, then suddenly i get an error message; "Connect to the internet" - You are without internet connection, check your connection" My connection is fine, and all other webpages works perfectly, even the youtube menu is still active, and i have figured that if i click on "Your videos" in the menu, it enters the Youtube creator mode without problems at all, while other video-links are "blocked" by this annoying issue. If i click a youtube link simultaneously as i load the youtube (Studio) creator mode, (or right after), the video plays as it should for a handful of videos, then i get the same message again, and i have to restart the browser to load another video link. I have tried to disable all add-ons i run, like adblocks and you name it, but the issue still remains. I also have problems loading the youtube comment-section while this goes on, and if i like a video and reload the page, the "like" is gone.

Does anyone know what i can do to solve this issue? Any solution is highly appreciated!

PS; I can provide screenshots if needed.

Thanks in advance!

I have a dell xps 7390 2-in-1 one laptop loaded with Pop_os 21.04. (Linux) and vanilla firefox with no extensions installed.

The laptop is touch screen.

When I tap the address bar at the top, the onscreen keyboard opens up. i am able to type into the address bar. Hitting the enter key on the onscreen keyboard does nothing. I have to tap the little go icon.

If I repeat this activity using the mouse and keyboard. hitting the enter button works fine.

I started using a MacBook Pro which has a bright touch bar where the function keys would usually be on a keyboard, but I like to customize it by removing most of the icons because it don't really use them. For Safari I went to View > Customize Touch Bar, but for Firefox I cannot seem to find that option in the menu bar. Is there any way to customize the touch bar for Firefox as well? Thank you.

Macbook Pro 15-inch, Late 2008 Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit) mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Problem is manifesting when I try and use Wordpress websites. Some fail to load or take some time. When editing in the backend - same issues, and when using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme on page editing does not work. Cannot open settings for modules, hovers over editable areas not behaving.

Looked at Console and it is showing this error repeatedly. Also showing many other errors too with Chrome and various OS functions.

9/15/21 11:56:25.614 AM firefox[1063]: stat on /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/eq2ony84.default-1556047105747/weave/commands.json: No such file or directory

First, what is the error and can it be fixed.

Second, would it be having any effect on the issues described.

Struggling to get my work done. Thanks for your insights.
