Hi friends,

I am receiving an error that firefox is out of disk space.

"firefox is running out of space"

Despite following the instructions the error still appears. I also clicked the "Got it" button in hopes that this would make the error go away, but it keeps coming back. My system has over 20gb free and I really can't see why this error is occuring.

Does anyone have any advice? (besides switching browsers)

Thanks.

For more than a year, I've been plagued with, "A web page is slowing down your browser."

It appears most often on Facebook and while multiple tabs are loaded, but other websites cause it to happen, as well, even when Facebook isn't loaded at all. The fewest multiple tabs that trigger this behavior is two (2), though it usually rears its head with around seven or more.

It appears whether extensions or plugins are disabled or not.

This never happens with Google Chrome.

I'm using the latest, 64-bit version of Firefox with automatic updates enabled.

This has been happening for more than a year.

Once a page begins to display this, it's done for the day about 80% of the time.

Closing multiple tabs does NOT solve the problem once it occurs.

Closing Firefox entirely (all tabs) does solve the problem, but only for a while.

Choosing Stop It or Wait doesn't seem to solve anything.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, twice.

OS: Windows 10 64-bit Anti-virus: Bitdefender Total Security for the second half of the year; Norton Security for the first half of the year.

I really wish Mozilla would put some effort into actually FIXING this major problem, as I've reached the point where I'm about to ditch Firefox entirely and go back to using Google Chrome. Judging by what I've found in these forums, it's been around since 2017, and none of the tips given therein have worked.

It's almost as if something in a tab other than the current one is occupying an excessive amount of processor cycles, and instead of managing it properly, Firefox gets hung up trying to

Suspicion: Facebook, possibly YouTube (owned by Google) intentionally "exercises" Firefox browsers in the hopes of getting users to drop it and go back to the far less secure Google Chrome.

Thank you for your time.

So, I was trying to head to Bing for reasons I will not disclose due to embarrassment. So I went to open it from google and was given the Error:

 ''''''''The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.''''''''

So I cleared cookies and site data, nothing still got the error. I tried checking my PC for malware as stupid as it sounds, I just didn't wanna be asked to do it. Spic and Span. I even checked my protection settings which FOR SOME REASON turned themselves back on. I turned those off and still, no dice.

Any help would be appreciated

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.

All of a sudden, Firefox appears frozen on launch: doesn't launch any web page, or any page, in face--preference, or any of the about: pages. Just blank page. Clicks are registered, but don't have any effect.

If I close the window, multiple firefox processes linger for a while, and then the crash window pops up.

So far, I've: deleted the ~/.mozilla directory; downloaded fresh version of both 86 and 87 developer editions; restarted with addons disabled; and various combinations thereof.

I'm on Linux Mint 64-bit, latest version.

Firefox is completely unusable for me now. And I think it started with my rebooting my PC (which I've done multiple times so far).

This looks suspiciously similar to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/a5qru6/firefox_64_opens_blank_tab_and_crashes/ and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1513855. They don't seem to have any solutions, though.

Any thoughts?

Firefox: latest (86.0 at the moment of posting this question) OS: Ubuntu 18.04.5

Problem: Firefox always reports time (to sites) in UTC (my correct timezone is UTC+7). That refers to site like everytimezone.com.

At the same time, Google Chrome on the same system reports correct time.

System clocks are synced to external time servers, time drift is negligible (if any).

How can one make Firefox report correct time (preferably without any extensions)?

Build: Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i5-10600, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, MSI B460M-A Pro. OS and some software on an SSD, other stuff on two hard drives.

Problem: Replaced mobo, CPU, RAM, CPU fan and SSD a week ago, installed fresh OS. The day after that computer started resetting randomly while streaming or watching a video in Firefox after a period of from five minutes to two hours. Never happened while I was playing Monster Hunter World and Apex Legends and streaming them with Chrome open or closed. Win doesn't say anything about it after reboot, and I can't see a minidump in Windows folder.

Event log doesn't say much interesting, two events right after the reboot are always like that:

The previous system shutdown at 15:23:32 on ‎02.‎03.‎2021 was unexpected.

Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0

The only other warnings in the log are like this: Catalog Database (1800,R,98) Catalog Database: The database format feature version 9180 (0x23dc) could not be used due to the current database format 1568.20.0, controlled by the parameter 0x410022D8 (8920 | JET_efvAllowHigherPersistedFormat).

Tried updating chipset & network adapter driver, graphics drivers, turning hardware acceleration in browsers on and off, removing add-ons from Firefox, reinstalling browsers. Checking temperatures with Open Hardware Monitor (all below 40 degrees Celsius), CPU load is very low. PSU is also a suspect, but this crash never happened when Firefox wasn't running.

I guess it was the update to Firefox v. 86.0 here on Ubuntu that made Firefox create an extra empty window beside the session I always (re)open, which contains a large amount of tabs. When I try to close the empty window Firefox gives a warning, that this will close my (many) tabs. That doesn't make much sense to me. And when another app, like Thunderbird, opens an URL, it is opened in the new empty window. I can add that I use some add-ons like Simple Tab Groups, Vertical Tabs Reloaded, AdBlock Plus and NoScript.

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Some websites like to hijack your keyboard shortcuts. (For example in forums, ⌘-C, ⌘-V, ⌘-K, ⌘-L)

In Firefox, you can hold ⌘+Shift while clicking a link to open it in a new background tab. I recently encountered a website (Duckduckgo) which hijacks this as well.

Is there a way to block website from redirecting your keyboard shortcuts. It's really intrusive and I hate it.
