Google searches are occasionally freezing up Firefox and not processing. I'll type in my search, push enter and suddenly my entire desktop will hang, mouse will move slowly and jerk around before regaining full control. Once control is regained, Firefox will no longer respond and must be force closed and relaunched.

It's getting exhausting to the point I've used Edge for searches just to not be bothered.

Let me know what information I can provide to make diagnosis easier. I understand intermittent issues are rough to troubleshoot.

Over the past few days FireFox v. 99.0.1 had been non-responsive on a tab.

Got to the point I had to close FF and tried to use cCleaner to clear cache/history etc.

However cCleaner could not proceed as it claimed FF was still open.

Using Windows Task Manager I found FireFox was "Suspended" (screenshot 1)

I then terminated the task - so cCleaner could proceed.

Then FF appeared to work OK. Until the next time....

It just happened a few minutes ago closing FF - using cCleaner - once again FF was "suspended" and had to be terminated in Task Manager.

On FF help it said Update to version 100 which I did BUT the update got stuck on the FF Update - for several minutes (definitely over 10 mins) so I had to terminate the FF Updater using Windows Task Manager (screenshots 2 & 3) again used Task Manager to terminate that.

FF appeared to open OK even showed the version 100 What's new tab.

BUT when I used FF help to check version I got Restart FF to update to version 100 (screen shot 4) Perhaps the last might temporary due to terminating the what appeared to be stuck Updater, but it was worth mentioning.

PC details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.19044 Build 19044 System Model HP Pavilion 590-p0097c Desktop PC System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2808 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

Vincent

Hi: I've used Firefox for years without trouble and I've even given money! However, I think the last update has prevented my banking site from operating correctly. In Bill payment you choose who you want to pay and fill in the amount. This still works. I move to the month, day, year boxes. If I click, say, on the month box I get a dropdown but selecting the month nothing happens. Ditto with day and year. The day box shows 1 and the year shows 202 and nothing changes when using the drop downs. Can't manually fill in the boxes. At first I thought it was my bank but they said there were no reported problems - they would! So tried Brave and Edge. Both worked perfectly. Tried it on my laptop rather than desktop and same problem using Firefox showed up. I hadn't fiddled with any Firefox settings. What to do? Thanks Donald

I Keepgetting the message

"Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at cunard.msgfocus.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

How can i stop that so that firefox brings up the web page i am trying to get.

10+ times a day I'll go to search something using the address bar (google search) and it won't search anything. At the same time it won't load any new tabs unless they've been opened recently and it will open them offline. To fix the problem you either need to fully close out of Firefox and reopen it or open a new window in Private Mode and search something (which loads the pages) then exit out of Private Mode and research in normal mode and it will work... It also won't load certain aspects of websites like automation's in Salesforce, but if you open Private Mode it will load those aspects perfectly.

I've been seeing suspicious .htm files appear in "downloads" when I hadn't requested any downloads. When I try to open the file, it always appears blank. Once I rebooted without deleting the file, and my system acted like it had a virus. I rebooted in Safe Mode and reverted to a restore point, then everything was fine. But I'm still seeing those suspicious files appearing, at least once per day. How do I stop them?

Posting on behalf of a user who hit the VPN inbound queue with a question better suited for this forum:

The tab bar, toolbar, and address bar placement in my Firefox Desktop browser has recently changed. I have been trying to revert these recent changes as they interrupt my current workflows.

I DO know which prior profile save contains the desired info however, it contains many files and I DO NOT KNOW which files I need for the bars to be restored. If you could provide me the name(s) of the file(s) that holds the bars data, I am probably saved, hopefully saved.

I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

Hello,

Despite the setting that Firefox never automatically deletes my history, it appears that a large part of my history was automatically deleted.
