Hi. I've long used Firefox for research and I bookmark over years what I read. My Firefox in Xubuntu upgraded to version 84.0.2 in two separate machines. One has a 37+ MB JSON with over 100k bookmarks. The other is for casual use and has about 150 bookmarks.

When I try to restore bookmarks from JSON, it just sits on both machines. This is the first time this happened in about a decade of using Firefox. (I don't have the JSON files converted to HTML, but this should be working without doing that.)

Can someone kindly help? My line of work is hooked into my bookmarks in Firefox, and I can't seem to get them to reload into the browser.

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

I recently downloaded and installed some Android emulator named "Andy". Unfortunately, the .exe also installed all kinds of other Software on my Windows 7 system.

I removed most of the unwanted Software but one problem remained: A search result hijacker was part of the package. It replaces the top 4 results with some cryptic redirect links that are luckily displayed in a different font, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed at all.

I tracked the issue down to a addon in Firefox (see attached screenshot) that I cannot remove, no matter what I try.

What I tried to remove it: - I tried to remove the addon via about:config - I tried to run Firefox in safe mode and uninstall it - I tried to factory reset Firefox - I Installed Avira and made a system scan - I installed MalwareBytes and made a system scan - I check all the extension folders for addons that I do not know but can't find anything - I checked my whole system for any xpi-files but couldn't find any.

I am out of ideas. I can disable the addon but thats about it. After a while Firefox will shut itself down and the next time I start it, the addon is on again. When I resinstall FIrefox, the same thing happens. The addon is always back.

When I inspect the element it loads some invisible icon file that is supposedly located in "src="jar:file:///C:/Windows/Installer/%7BB28AF4A4-C997-4A5B-A111-FD1E65138A8D%7D/%7B02E337C0-4D70-452D-AA64-92D0A8C5D953%7D.xpi!/icon48.png"", if that helps. But the location doesn't exist on my system.

Can anyone here help me? I alread sent a problem report via the official tool.

Sincerely Florian

I use Firefox a lot, and a couple of months ago, it started duplicating images whenever I ctrl-v'd the images into discord. Since then, I've completely reinstalled firefox several times, with no addons-I also tried the beta and nightly versions, and even Waterfox, and still run into this problem. It seems to be an issue that strikes a lot of firefox users, and I haven't been able to find a fix yet.

In short: copy image paste image into discord (it doesn't matter if it's ctrl-v or right click paste) two images are attached to the message instead of one

This only happens to some images, mainly .pngs. I have no idea what is causing this problem and I would appreciate some kind of fix.

This issue started on August 19, 2021 with a profile I have been using for about 3 years. It persisted so I copied data and the chrome folder to a profile folder I created in October, 2020 but had not used. That was on August 22, 2021. It happened again with the 'new' profile. I quit several times earlier in the day (without clearing history, clearing and managing data) without issue. Sometimes the lock file is NOT deleted when Firefox quits. These are the reports from August 22, 2021: bp-4788a5d4-5989-492e-a8af-fc34b0210822 22/8/21, 21:20 bp-8aadf9d6-51b7-4da1-b28e-439b20210822 22/8/21, 21:18 bp-132d4134-609a-4a45-ac7e-9b3350210822 22/8/21, 21:15 bp-ac52e700-c3d0-48e2-ab32-233b80210822 22/8/21, 21:11 As directed by the support article, I clicked on 'View' for the latest report.

Since a few days, I keep experiencing constant crashes with Firefox.

In the most common way, a Tab will crash first, often followed shortly by the whole browser crashing.

Crashes occur on, but are not limited to, following pages: • YouTube.comReddit.com • Google Account Login • about:preferences • about:crashes • about:support • The very same Support-page I’m writing this on

Crashes still occur after: • Rebooting Computer • Clearing of Cache • Starting in Safe Mode (crashes in Safe mode) • Deactivation of hardware acceleration • Refreshing Firefox • Reinstallation of Firefox (Uninstalled with the Uninstall/helper.exe) • Use of Windows Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool (DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth)

Crash logs list: • Crash Reason EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT Crash Address 0x00007ff88082381f • Crash Reason EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ Crash Address 0x000001f4465fffe8

I’m kind of out of options. Most support pages are 2 years or older, so I don’t really know if I’m experiencing the same errors as they did.

If there’s any more information required, please let me know.

Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Since FF 69 the starting (not the loading!) of websites frequently lasts more than 10 seconds under Xubuntu. The tab remains empty during this waiting time, while no sign of the loading process can be seen: The tab header shows no title, only the URL. The animated loading icon of the tab header is not shown. The status bar shows no activity. For about 5 to 20 seconds it looks like the tab is frozen. (See hardcopy.) This phenomenon occurs irregularly, but repeatedly, approximately with 10-20 percent of all calls, regardless of the requested URLs. It typically occurs piled within a random period, that lasts between a some seconds and several minutes. It also happens in safe mode, regardless of the used profile (even an unmodified new profile) and both in private an non-private windows. As far as I can judge, the troubleshooting Information shows no abnormalities. There are no issues with the internet connection. I've been using Firefox trouble-free for more than 10 years, but this phenomenon only occurred since Firefox 69.0.

I recently made the switch to Firefox. I attempted to use the version downloaded from the internet, which I already had installed for a long time, but it would not open. I then used the version available on the Microsoft Store, which worked fine. Eventually, Firefox crashed and would not reopen. A message saying something along the lines of "Are you sure you want to start Firefox in safe mode?" would appear for a split second, and then close. I tried:

-Starting Firefox in safe mode, but nothing happened. -Restarting my computer. -Reinstalling Firefox. -Running as administrator. -Checking it is not blocked by antivirus. -Using the profile manager to create a new profile: The .zip file version opens but does not help, and the version opened by using the "firefox.exe -P" command in Run suffers from the same problem as the browser and opens for only a split second. -Attempting to boot my computer in safe mode with networking, however, the Microsoft Store listed Firefox as uninstalled, and the network menu would not display any networks so I could not reinstall it. -Searching for any Comodo iseguard.dll files, but I found none.

The only thing that worked was searching "Mozilla" in files and deleting everything except what my computer said was part of the system. After that, I was able to open Firefox, but after a short amount of time, the problem started all over. I have no clue what to do and looking all over for solutions is driving me nuts! Please help!

When I open Firefox, I'm getting ** 12 ** instances of Firefox opening up and spamming the hell out of my hard drive (even slowing down other processes), even without opening a page (I have mine set to not open any pages on loading Firefox). This is annoying and intolerable. I have looked around to find a workaround, but the only post was from last year, and gives instructions to turn off recommended settings, then says to set Firefox instances to 1, where there is no way to do that in that section on the version I'm running. So, how do I fix this? I want the hard drive spamming stopped.

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!
