This is the 3rd time I've posted here about crashing in the last month or so. I really do apologize for having to post again but I simply haven’t gotten to a solution. I really need to continue using Firefox as all the other browsers are significantly slower in my experience and I'm in the browser around-the-clock. I’d be willing to pay for customer support from Mozilla but they do not provide any type of support directly as most of you probably know.

Please review this link here to see all the steps I have already taken to troubleshoot the crashes.

I really thought that the crash reports I had would help me pinpoint the issue but it appears as though they’re not very helpful for those who can interpret them. If that’s not the case, I greatly appreciate it if anybody can dig through them to uncover some insights related to why I may be having frequent crashes (I'm willing to pay).

Crash ID from a recent crash: bp-058c91cd-4b9c-46d1-bd12-640ba0210928

Thank you so much for any help.

A few days ago, a weird problem arose with "Take Screenshot" function.

The resulting image includes area designated PLUS a border on the right edge AND on the bottom edge. Note: width of side border is wider than border on the bottom is tall. This is difficult to tell in a file image because it seem to be transparent and assumes the color of background. Confusing, I know, so I have included a composite image image of result of "Save Image As..." on top, and the "Take Screenshot" added to the bottom. Prior to a few days ago, the bottom image would not have the added borders and therefore the colored part of the image would be the same width as the "Save Image As..." and extend to bottom of the image.

Note: it doesn't matter whether I download to file or cut and paste the image. The same thing happens if I "Save Full Image". And, yes, I know I need to upgrade to latest version, but this issue needs investigation...

TIA, KBo

Hi,

since the new, yet discussed, Firefox Browser update I've had a problem with the minimize, resize and close buttons on the top right corner of the Firefox window on my laptop. My problem is that those buttons are not integrated into the Firefox window itself.

What I mean is that to accommodate those buttons there is a white long bar all across the top part of the window with the "XXX site - Mozilla Firefox" title at the left and the "_ ⬜ X" icons on the right, while on my Desktop version those buttons are well integrated into the black (my theme color) part of the Firefox window, being at the same height as opened tabs (the said position of the icons on my desktop is represented by the white rectangle drawn on the attached picture (red lines are censored bookmarks and information)).

Is there a way to get rid of that white top strip and integrate the minimize, resize and close buttons in the Firefox window itself?

Thanks very much in advance for any help or reply!

Hello, I decided to post here instead of seeking help/assistance on the Firefox reddit.

About a week or so ago I was using Firefox fine, no issue and out of the blue it just stops wanting to launch, or if it does launch it's stuck on a dark window, I was using the dark theme, that looks like it has a loading bar on the page tabs and in the url bar. It just hangs here indefinitely, the only way that I can close down Firefox is by opening up ProcessExplorer64 and killing it that way; it does not respond to task manager at all.

What I've done:

Uninstalled / Reinstalled firefox; Updated my drivers; Turned my computer on and off again; Completely turned off, unplugged and power cycled my computer; Made it a firewall exception; Ensured my internet is connected and my computer has it (I use Discord and Chrome, in fact I have to post this in Chrome.)

What I do not have:

Anti-Virus; My computer is clean, if I could I would eat off the data and suffer no infection from it. Norton/Comodo/Avast; There is no anti-virus. There is no adware, malware, trojans, viruses or spyware on my machine. Going to the same three websites since 1997, no malicious programs are downloaded.

What I have tried related to Firefox:

Running in Safe Mode: Can't access safemode, browser does not launch far enough to have the menu interactable. Trying to launch the profile manager yields nothing. Uninstalling and Reinstalling Firefox yields no result. The only error that I have gotten is a XPRCOM error or something and the solutions for that have not worked for me as I do not have multiple installations of Firefox on my machine.

I would attach a screenshot of how Firefox looks, but I am unable to as of this post it has devolved to launching as a background process and crashing immediately.

Help?

App is broken; something is wrong. I'd like to use a Browser that is not Chrome.

HI!

My buddy highlighted an issue, then i re-checked myself and it is worrying to me.

To recreate (windows):

Get any (non-webistaller [not nececarry, to do it this way, but simpler to check]) firefox version (buddy got a fresh portable, i used my kinda privacy fortified one). Disconnect from the internet (plug the cable for fastest result). Make your version usable (install it) Start firefox, and open the Resource Monitor, with the network tab open expand the Network Activity portion (short alphabeticly, by name, check for F for firefox). Plug the cable in.

You soon will see FF will start looking for things, then an adress with a googleusercontet.com will pop up. Does not matter what is the Homepage's default browser, does no matters even if the Homepage is set to blank, this happens.

My best bet would be google safe browsing, but still, without any activity it is already connecting to that?

I know about the Google-FF/Mozilla relation, but this really made me think about why i still like firefox.

Hi, Guys

I just got an email from Mozilla telling me about their new upcoming service to remove personal information from the web. In that email there was a link to someone's "free personal data removal workbook and credit freeze guide". I clicked on that link, and Norton blocked it as being a "dangerous webpage".

Norton also says "You attempted to access: https://gate.sc/?url=https%3A%2F%2Finteltech..."

And that, "This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page."

So, what's going on here? Please let me know.

So, I started following instructions via this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-crashes-closing-or-quitting

I first made sure Firefox and all my drivers were up to date, which they were. Moving on, using Troubleshooting Mode, I have yet to encounter any issues. The screenshot below shows the crash reports between yesterday and today. For some reason it won't let me submit the crash report from yesterday, as well as the first one that happened today. I'm also not sure why there are 4 crash reports generated for 10:05PM on 9/30, because Firefox only crashed once to my knowledge.

Here's the submitted crash report ID's, though: bp-35800b96-f14a-488f-b94d-94fa10211001 bp-ad3476ee-2ceb-4de1-a824-a49a90211001 bp-94812bc3-6e24-4454-a479-a6fc70211001 bp-a238a0fc-37f9-4b5c-b883-eb2cb0211001

And the "Failed" Unsubmitted crash reports: b8ab5181-c940-4177-ad4b-00ef7b99f84a be5771aa-ccc2-423b-b94e-5acbd65ec765

Typically I have these extensions installed, and I've never had an issue thus far: 1. uBlock Origin (also in incognito) 2. Adguard Adblocker (also in incognito) 3. Honey 4. Translate Web Pages (though it's left disabled, unless needed)

Why do I use two adblockers? Because one or the other isn't typically sufficient, and I find those two to work together the best.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

I've been going through all the Spell Checker problems with Firefox on the forum and so far nothing has solved my problem.

Since re-installing Firefox, my spell check is not working. It's ticked in the language settings and I've since installed two dictionaries. I read on one post to check if the dictionary is selected (or something) by right-clicking and selecting languages in the languages sub menu but when I right-click, there is no such menu.

Short of re-installing Firefox and hoping for the best, anyone have any potential solutions?
