Firefox crashing frequently and unexpectedly. I can't discern any pattern to when it happens. I don't know what's triggering it.

I've tried refreshing it, reinstalling it, running under a newly created profile, running under safe mode. The crashing continues despite all of these things.

So as of the last update my browser has suddenly started to lock up for 1-2 seconds at a time refusing to do anything for that duration, and then resume as normal after. It doesn't matter if I'm browsing, looking at images or watching a video... they all freeze. Videos will continue playing however with no skip/pause in sound.

It doesn't matter if I'm opening new tabs, scrolling facebook, or just typing here.. it doesn't seem to care what I'm doing when it happens. As I've typed this I've had it happen twice now with no occurrence in another program.

I thought this was my hard drive failing at first, so I migrated everything to a different hard drive as well as the cache folder... and it still does it.

I thought it was a particular addon "Honey" as it is KNOWN for significant slow downs as it checks for prices/coupons and after disabling it nothing changed.

I next assumed it had something to do with the session storing(looking at disk activity), so I changed the interval from 15 seconds to 25 minutes and that did nothing.

I tried doing a "refresh" as well as starting without addons and neither of those had any affect, implying the base program without addons is the issue.

There is no significant CPU spike when this occurs. Really activity is 20% or less average. There is a significant disk spike when this occurs. RAM usage is average with no change. If this were a RAM issue I'd be seeing instability at random, and not a single program.

I'm not encountering this issue with other programs - only firefox.

As it happens randomly I can't "reproduce" it reliably, but it is continuous and will occur whether I do anything or not. To be said it is not doing this on my desktop... so I guess it could be some conflict with winblows but I haven't a clue what that might be.... if it is please let me know so I can kill it with extreme prejudice.

(Ubuntu 20.10 NUC 7I5 32 gig memory) I had (firefox) version 83.02 installed and working.

Today I turned on the machine, loaded Firefox and.....

It sort of crashed. I selected "reload Firefox" and things went a bit weird.

Today is 24 Dec 2020. I have had the machine on a few times since 15 Dec 2020.

Firefox restarted and YUCK! it was horrible! I had the DARK theme chosen and somehow it restarted in the other one which is ..... not dark.

The cursor is annoying at times when you are typing and I try to ignore it as much as possible, but since that which just happened I noticed the cursor is now changing its look as I move around a web page.

Looking at the release notes there is no mention of this being done.

I can't find anything in the settings/preferences/config/what ever to control the cursor. But that aside: this didn't used to happen. (No big. Just mentioning it)

If I move over a link the cursor changes from what it is to a hand (left pointing).

Is this now normal?

My Win10 laptop with Firefox v. 84.0.1 (64-bit) recently stopped displaying radar images on both Accuweather.com and Weather.com. It will display the background map image but fails to display the radar overlay image of precipitation, clouds, etc. I suspected at first that perhaps that might be caused by AdBlock Plus or other security/privacy software to block pop-ups; but after whitelisting both sites, examining potential options on my Firefox browser, clearing browser history, and reinstalling Firefox, I'm still unable to display radar images on either weather URL.

The failure to display radar overlays is the only symptom I've noticed. I have no difficulty displaying radar images on my cellphone or using Edge on the laptop, so it would seem the problem is somewhere in the laptop or Firefox software; but the problem on the laptop began with no apparent connection to any updates of software, Firefox, or anti-malware, which sometimes cause unexpected problems. I'm totally baffled! Do you have any suggestions for elsewhere to look?

I recently updated to Firefox version 84.0. I also updated my video drivers a short while afterwards. This appears to have caused issues with video streaming on the browser. I need to see if this is an issue inherent to version 84, or if this is a result of a driver glitch, as I had encountered a previous streaming issue which I later resolved. I want to check my previous version of Firefox to see if the issue persists on that browser. If it does, then I know the issue is the drivers, and if not, then I would know the issue is version 84.0 of Firefox. However, I am unsure how to see exactly which version of the browser I updated from, which makes it difficult to know which downgraded version to test this on. Can anyone help?

This has been happening for the last couple of days and I thought it was a Google issue, but after getting everything up on my iPad it seems pretty clear that it isn't. The majority of the time whenever I try and open one of these three sites with Firefox, the page just stops loading entirely - leaving me on a new tab - or I get the message that "we're having trouble finding that website" with no helpful explanation offered. I've tested other sites and they all work absolutely fine.

I've tried clearing my cache and that did absolutely nothing other than cost me my password data, which was frustrating. Firefox did update a few days ago so I'm wondering if it's something to do with that. Any help anyone could offer would be much appreciated!

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?

I have been having a problem with an auction site of which I have had an account for over 5 years. Recently pictures will not show for listings. When a new auction is listed, all pictures show on the page. However when I later return to the page several pictures will not show. Instead I get a broken pic/ image. After several days no pictures will show up. If I refresh Firefox, the pictures will all show, but then the next day they continue to decay. I have uninstalled/ installed Firefox yesterday 1/11/2020. However the same process occurs. Today I cannot view the pictures. I am using Norton 360 https://www.enlistedauctions.com/]
