Hello,

It is suspected that latest version of Firefox version 78.11.0esr (64-bit) is causing operathing systems to crash. I have not seen it on Windows platform as I am not using it. Platforms I am using are OSX and XUbuntu. The error occurs lingering on a site for a very long time. First it starts getting screen graphic errors like, some pixels are not being updated correctly. Then after a while screen starts to flicker, in a massive state, like the graphic processor is broken. In some cases with command key strokes one is able to kill Firefox, screen is back to normal and one can continue working. Facebook is the site that most commonly is causing error, but there are also other sites.

My MacBook Air is alerting a Trojan spyware alert with an error code in my Firefox browser. I ran malwarebytes and it did not detect any issues. I also opened safari and that ran without an error message so apple tech said to contact Firefox for support. Should I just delete and re-install Firefox or is this a more compromising issue?

Hello,

what can i do when i get a message "Sorry. We just need to do one small thing to keep going." with <Restart Firefox> or "Gah. Your tab just crashed." all the time i open firefox? A restart with Add-Ons disabled does not help. I send the troubleshooting information from Help/Troubleshooting information. As one can see Firefox does not seem to produce crash reports either.

Since late last night, I've been having issues connecting to Facebook when using Firefox. Through my own troubleshooting efforts, I've run multiple Virus and Malware scans via AVG, Malware Bytes, TDSS Killer and Microsoft Safety Scanner, to no avail. What doesn't help is that when checking Facebook in Chrome, the error code I get is NET::ERR_SSL_OBSOLETE_VERSION relating to TLS 1.0 and 1.1. Are there other things I should try on my end as to the cause of this issue?

To my knowledge, the issue is only with Facebook. Other websites I frequent are connecting with no issues.

On some websites the fonts are all displaying in a large bold text instead of whatever font that page is meant to use. It will revert to a default font if i turn off the ability for sites to choose their own fonts, but this interferes with the functionality of a lot of sites' icons so its not a great solution. This also stops when i go into troubleshooting mode, but when i went through hardware acceleration and my extensions one by one, none of them were the cause.

images in order: my roll20 homepage with the incorrect font display, the same page with fonts disabled (note the notification icons in the upper right are broken now though), the same page in troubleshoot mode with the correct font display

I have been bugged by this issue for a while. I switched to nightly because I thought it was because of the fix https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/ab80197101b9 Sadly... it isn't.

I can 100% reproduce the bug. The steps are as following:

  1. Have an active sound (I tested Youtube, Twitch, Spotify and Netflix) from Firefox
  2. Open the page https://deepl.com
  3. Sound of Firefox gets distorted and has an echo on it.

I am at a loss where this issue could be and I would like to provide more data if needed (as I can reproduce it it should be simple)

I have a sound sample from a while back to get you an idea of what it sounds like. Also some gathered logs from dmesg and syslog which might not be of any use. (I used the latest stable release of firefox at that time --> Timestamp format: yyyymmdd) Sound file and logs

What is going on with Firefox on Linux? It's been my favorite browser for years and I want to stick with it, but it becomes unusable.

I've got 32GB of RAM, so I should theoretically be able to open quite a few tabs (which I need as a web developer), but when I have about 15 tabs open, it consumes about 1GB of ram per tab. Usually I have some webmail tabs open, google drive, youtube, some documentation and references, github, example sites... you know, the usuall stuff you find in a web dev's browser.

I'm running the latest updates on Ubuntu 20.04 and have the latest Firefox installed. On my Windows (dual-boot so the same computer, but windoze is more for gaming than for work), I can open 50 tabs and have no memory issues at all. I'm syncing my extensions so it's the exact same configuration, yet on Linux it's huge a pain in the behind to keep using it.

Are there any fixes for this? I've seen other complain about similar issues for previous versions of Firefox and other Linux distros, I've ran through all the self help suggestions and nothing helps.

I've been moving between computers and used a time machine back up to bring over everything, including my Firefox profile. Everything was fine but about 2 weeks ago the computer seemingly crashed while I was absent and on the restart and ever since, just the one window, of 3, that I had open stays on screen. I have tried seeing all windows and looking on separate desktops but all to no avail. When I quit Firefox it clearly recognises all the windows as the tabs count is correct but only the 1 window was ever visible. I did all the madness of renaming the sessionstore file and deleting the recovery json files and replacing the previos json file but nothing has changed the outcome. I tried the Henderson?!? website to get a list of everything but that just looked like it was eternally thinking and never concluded. It's highly likely the workload was exceptional and might well have completed one day but it seemed to be stuck. If it helps, I'm on an 10 core 3.6ghz iMac with 64Gb of RAM and I'm using the latest Firefox version. Before anyone asks, I had an obscene amount of tabs open as I have many projects on the go and different windows are used for different things with multiple tabs in each window. The highest total tabs I've ever had was 541! I know, I know.

Just upgraded from Mint 18 to 20.2 and am finding FIrefox unusable. I've tried to research this and am getting nowhere. Ryzen 5, Gigabyte GA-356-gaming MB , 32GB Ram

I have about 10 windows configured with 10 tabs. (Happily this version of Firefox now remembers which desktop they are on across reboots!) When I start up firefox and it begins loading these tabs, it grinds to a halt with high CPU utilization and for some reason there is almost no activity on ethernet. The tabs take FOREVER to load, and once loaded firefox windows and tabs operates either clunky or unresponsive. MInt is affected some too, with other operations somewhat clunky.

I can reboot and load a session of Chrome and it behaves fine and speed tests there are proper. Since it works on Chrome, I figure this is strictly a FIrefox code issue, not something underlying like BIOS (which is F31, not the highest for this MB) But hopefully there is a Mint work around that someone knows.

Firefox seems to be partially transparent, which makes my background to bleed over the Firefox windows. I have already reinstalled it, cleared cookies and data, refreshed firefox, made a new profile and even deleted all firefox files and cache in ~/.mozilla/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox/ & firefox-addons/.


And despite all of this it still does not seem to fix the transparency issue, apart form it all the browser works great only that visual bug annoys the experience. The errors seems to disappear if Firefox is launched in Troubleshoot Mode but launching without it brings back the issue.

NOTE: It can be fixed by installing a fresh copy of the system which is not convenient. Error happens in Firefox-92.0 in linux.
