Since I installed the latest version of Firefox (under Win10), frequently my PC slows down to a crawl. The task monitor then shows 6 or 7 Firefox applications running and using almost all my storage. My PC is not the newest, its an old HP with a gigabyte main storage, but Firefox seems to multiply its processes without limit. Is there any way to limit this?

Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

I'm using Firefox 78.10 on an ancient MBP El Capitan

Hi,

This is a specific problem whose solution I was unable to find, which is why I am posting here. For quite a long time (I'm not sure when since it has been long enough that I have more or less accepted it at this point), I am having an issue with page loading while I have an Ad Blocker installed. It doesn't matter which one it is, as long as I have one installed and enabled, it takes around 3-5 minutes for any page to load when I first start Firefox. This is especially prevalent when I have just started up my computer, compared to if I had used Firefox just a while ago and am opening it again, in which case the duration is shorter, but still around 2-3 minutes.

I have tried multiple ad blockers, such as uBlock Origin, AdBlock, AdBlock Plus and AdNauseam, but I'm facing this issue with all of them. I know it's the ad blocker because whenever I disable it, the pages which were otherwise not loading, load immediately, but with ads. If I enable the ad blocker again, I still have to wait the duration I would otherwise have to, for the page to continue loading or website to continue working.

I would like to know some way around this issue aside from disabling the ad blocker altogether, or a suggestion for a different ad blocker would also be welcome, as long as I can get rid of this issue.

Current Firefox version: 86.0.1 (64-bit)

I've had this issue persistently over several versions over the last couple of years.

I have a rather weird problem with firefox. I need to open websites twice to get them to work. To try and explain what I mean here is a how i currently need to use the browser

Open tab,

type in web address/search,
hit enter

tab is stuck infinitely loading ( i cant refresh, I cant type a different adress, that tab is just stuck loading) open a second tab

type in the exact same address/search
hit enter and for some reason it now loads instantly

And it isnt just new tabs its the same story to load any and all webpages say I am on a page of google search results click a link stuck infinitely loading open new tab repeat the same search click the same link, for some reason now loads instantly

Also websites that require the dumbest thing in history, captchas, they are simply unusable, doesnt matter if I use the pictures or the audio, even when I get it right it just reloads the pointless captcha box. Why a captcha is necessary sometimes just to load google.com makes less than zero sense, even if I was a bot what possible harm could I do by loading a search bar? but I digress

I am on the latest version and I do have some addons installed:

privacy badger, dark reader, ublock origin, tree style tabs, privacy settings, ghostery,dontaccept webp


but even starting firefox with add ons disabled the problem is still there.


Anyone got any ideas for this? thanks

No suggested fix works. Reinstalling does not help, toggling DRM application does not help. It was obviously the update (at least for users on 78.10.0esr with OS X 10.9.5) that did it. Is there some way to get this registered as a bug?

For days I was noticing that, after exiting sleep mode for at least a couple hours, Firefox would open up with the spinning wheel and would be completely frozen. Frequently I'd have to reboot and re-open in Safe Mode, because it wouldn't force quit. Then I'd disable the plugins when I had it open. But eventually I had to re-activate this plugin in order to stream content. I don't know 100% if this is causing the problem. Is anyone else having issues with this plugin and if so, is there a simple way to fix/debug?

Hi!

Firefox won't open any webpage on my PC. Firefox starts but the addres bar won't open anything, no google none of the about: pages or anything else. I run Manjaro Linux 20.2.1 with linux kernel 5.10.19 and my Firefox is at version 86.0.

I have tried multiple different solutions for example changes my profile, creating a new profile downgrading firefox and doing a full clean install of firefox. The same problem persist also on LibreWolf(fork of firefox).

Do you have any idea what could be the problem?

I use Zone Alarm Extreme Security to scan for viruses, etc. I just upgraded to the latest version on my Windows 8.1 PC. Almost every scan has found the Heur:trojan-Downloader.script.generic virus in the same place. The path is as follows:

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\56zaeue3.default\extensions\staged\{b54cc223-b03f-4f2f-8cab-347ec67ab3fe}\bootstrap.js

ZA keeps treating the virus, but I want to get rid of it all together. I haven't been able to delete it because it is not visible in the folder location listed in the path. I've turned on view system/invisible files, but it is not visible. ZA tech support suggests reinstalling Firefox to see if that solves the problem, and if not, then a complete uninstall then reinstall of ZA.

I'm wondering if I can just delete the "staged" folder to get rid of the virus... The only extension I have added to Firefox is AdBlocker Ultimate, and I did that after the virus started showing up.

Has anyone else had this virus problem and if so, how did you solve it?

Firefox crashes and restarts my computer all the time.

What happens: Suddenly the screen just goes black and my PC boots up again. Like the power was cut for a second.

When does it happen: It started in the last quarter of last year. It happens randomly when firefox is open and multiple times a day! It does not matter whether there is heavy load on the system or just few pages are open and I'm not even doing anything. I think it has happened only once while gaming (but the firefox was open that time). And generally with heavy workloads (gaming/solidworks) the PC runs just fine. Since it started I have done two clean installs of Win 10, "refreshed" the firefox, tried disabling all extensions, disabled hardware acceleration. The crash still happens.

The crash: The windows event has two errors after reboot: Event ID 6008 and 41. The crash happens so suddenly, there are no crash logs when windows boots up. It seemed so odd that I started to suspect my PSU is broken. BUT THEN I used edge browser and my computer didn't crash for a WEEK.

I miss using firefox to sync my stuff between mac, android and windows without having to log into big corporation account. But since starting to use firefox again, the crashes are back just as before.

Any Ideas how to fix this?

Hi. Problem description: - After some time a tab is opened I can hit any link on current web page but Firefox don't load it. - It shows the loading progress but newer show the requested page. - Going to safe mode (disabling all plugins and extensions) doesn't solve the issue. - Reinstalling Firefox doesn't solve the issue. - Restart Firefox solves the problem but after 10 - 20 minutes the issue comes back. When I leave some opened page in some tab it stops responding on hitting any link on it. - The most strange thing when I disconnect the network adapter the page immediately appeared on the screen, but mostly as simple text, without any pictures and styling. -After connection back to network everything works for some time (10 - 20 minutes).


I have verified that Firefox doesn't send a HTTP request in the moment of hitting some link on web page. The request is sent after 10 seconds, sometimes after several minutes after, nevertheless the requested page doesn't appeared at all. I used Process Monitor from sysinternals.com to see Firefox communication.

First screenshot I made after hitting link "deleting your user account". After approximately 7 seconds Firefox starts communication with github.com. The requested page didn't appeared during 2 minutes. https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-04-29-12-06-06-96a3be.png

Next two screenshots was made after I disconnected a network adapter. https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-04-29-12-14-07-a2ef40.png https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-04-29-12-15-15-e45ee7.png
