Concurrent with the most recent automatic windows update (may or may not be the problem), Firefox with duck-duck-go will not go to almost any site. All I get is a spinning icon or a blank page, not even any error messages. This was even true trying to go to this page until I restarted in trouble shooting mode. Until I can get Firefox working again I have been using Chrome with duck-duck-go. Note any search, i.e. 'hotels in Italy' or even 'MSN' do the same: spinning icon or blank page!! Any help would be appreciated. Also I noticed that my bookmarks were missing and there was no bookmarks drop-down on my tools line. I have run malware bytes and it showed clean, same with CCleaner. I have re-installed Firefox; no difference. Please help. and also, any way to find and replace my extensive bookmarks list? I have reduced my privacy to near zero and turned off firewalls and all limits I could find while testing for that. That did not change anything.

The RAM usage increases, from 1GB to 40GB+ within a matter of minutes of starting Firefox. I have not added any extensions in months. I turned of several with no improvement. I have 6 tabs opened. Firefox has crashed several times the past couple fo months. I have been away on travel for 2 weeks, and today the problem is much worse.

Firefox (37916) 51GB, Extensions (34308) 370MB, GPU (33072) 298MB , and everything else < 100 MB.

I really love Firefox - use across my 4 devices. Only on my desktop am I seeing this. Laptop, iPad, and Android all work fine. Running Win 11

On Chrome this displays as expected:

https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-04-18-22-02-25-eebbd5.png

But on Firefox the background colors are ignored:

How can I get Firefox to display the background colors?

I opened my laptop out of sleep mode and it quickly reset itself, and when it loaded back up Firefox no longer worked. Everything was working fine prior to the reset, but now I can load any websites, nor do any of the menus within Firefox work. I keep clicking on the menu button in the top right, but nothing happens. The only thing that seems to work is the add-ons icon. I can click that and it navigates me to the add-ons page, and from there I can get in to my settings, but that's it.

No websites will load at all. I've already tried configuring my firewall to allow Firefox, and I've removed it and re-added it to my exceptions list, but nothing seems to work.

Does anyone know what might be causing this, and what can be done to fix it?

I'm developing a website and noticed while testing that firefox sends requests to "/sw.js" on my local webserver. When starting with a fresh profile folder, this does not happen (and also not with other browsers). So, I thought, this might be one of my extensions, but in Troubleshooting mode, the browser still sends these requests, everytime a site is refreshed. It does not affect performance or anything, I am just afraid that I was somehow hacked as I did not make many settings in firefox. Do you know, how I could further diagnose the problem?

My firefox browser is controlled by an organization and I don't beong to an organization.

I can't delete certificates that have authorization to change, block, reroute, access my computer hard drive, you name it. Certificates that I do remove immediately reappear.

The authority certificates are from China, Russia, and many untrustworthy locations.

It happens in Firefox focus on my Android, Firefox on my computer and it appears the spyware has access to my hard drive and phone.

How do I fix this, and can you remove this organizarion from controlling my browser?

Hi,

I was using FF on Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS. Had version FF 120.x and playing video in Netflix worked fine. Then I updated to FF 124.x and playing video stopped with error F7355-1203.

I've checked the DRM setting and it is enabled, I checked addons and I have OpenH264 and Widevine installed, both set to always active.

I've checked installed codecs and I do have libavcodec58 installed. No update for that available via apt. I also have ffmpeg installed, no problem with that either. I can play Netflix videos in Chrome, but not in Firefox now. Something happened to Firefox when I updated from 120.x to 124.x. Today I updated to 125.x, same problem, Netflix video won't play.

I've unchecked the DRM setting and re-checked it, and that does reinstalled Widevine but does not fix the problem.

Any ideas what could be the cause?

1. Web pages load in gibberish, they aren't legible. 2. Web pages load with neon green blocks. 3. Firefox isn't allowing me to download an entirely new download.

I understand the gibberish could be a font problem but when I use right click for inspection options, I can't find any font info anywhere. Even if I could, what would I do then? Green blocks, have no idea. I used to use Firefox and have just now started again but would prefer a brand clean copy. Mozilla isn't giving me that option. Thanks.
