Both latest Firefox and Thunderbird fail to open and show crash report just after initialization with macOS Catalina Version 10.15 Beta (19A526h). I can not operate Firefox in Safe Mode because it crashes whenever I try to start it.

Hi, my firefox started to crash regularly for a few months. I have seen it crash while on idle, while changing tabs, while opening ne tabs... i.e. no repetable pattern. Morever, I couldn't figure out the reason since all the crash reports turned different reasons for each crush. It has now become hourly crashes which really started to affect my workflow. Could you please help?

Since downloading the latest version, the browser stops functioning after the first site. It won't even allow me to quit, without the 'force quit'. Plus, while in the first site (my local newspaper) it stops recognising key strokes and mouse clicks. In fact, everything stops working.

I'm sending this through Chrome.

Any fixes?

Thanks, Stan Nikolic

As the question says. I updated my Mac (2018 MacBook Pro) to the most recent OS (Catalina), I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox like 6 times, cleared my trash and any and all Firefox files, and deleted all profiles, made a new default one, and then deleted that one when it still wouldn't start, and restarted my laptop more than once. I cannot seem to get it to start no matter what I do! I've tried every fix I can find online. Every time I try to launch Firefox, it appears in the dash for a second and immediately shuts down. Trying to start in Safe Mode doesn't work either. Firefox used to work, but then I force quit it *once* because I was quitting all applications I wasn't using. Now it won't work at all no matter what I do. How do I fix this?

I tried rebooting in safe mode, which worked. But now it's happening every other time I a window, and the only fix is to quit and restart.

Here's a screenshot so you can see more easily. https://www.dropbox.com/s/10xv6t0wvwo7z3j/Screenshot%202020-03-29%2009.56.11.png?dl=0 (also uploaded below)

As you can see, the open/minimize/close buttons are gone, and I can't click any of the extensions, type, open the Help sidebar, etc.

Firefox 69.0.2 is no longer able to load any web page since some time after updating to macOS10.15.

The Mac itself is connected to the Internet and I can do emails and Safari just works fine.

But FIrefox cannot connect to anywhere and show "The connection has timed out". I have tried Refreshing, Safe mode, and re-installation after removing the profile folder under Application Support. None of them worked.

Is this only me? Is there a fix?

Thanks, Kouichi

If I try to reopen it, I get a message that I can't reopen it because there is a copy in use already. If I try to force quit Firefox it is not in the force quit menu. If I look in Activity Monitor Firefox is not present there either. Thank you.

I am a new apple user. I have the Catalina OS. Most current version. I have talked to apple...they tell me to use safari. I like firefox. Now, my issue. When I am on a web pags (this occurs randomly) I am bounced from the web page I am on to a previous web site I was on. I do nothing nor click on anything to cause this. It just happens. When I am on facebook, this will happen and bounce me off facebook and put me on a web page i had been on during the same session. This was not happening until I just got the latest Catalina update a week ago. I do not know how to fix this issue. Are there settings needing to be changed in the apple IOS? If so what are they? Is there something I can change in my facebook account? Is there something I can change in my Firefox browser account? Or should I just sit tight, grin and bare it until firefox makes changes via an update and fixes this issue. I am beginning to think, I should have stuck with my windows 10 system instead of moving to apple. I am just frustrated that I can not fix this issue. Any ideas out there? Thanks, Jim

When I receive an email with an inline/embedded image, I only see the image's filename. When I insert an inline/embedded image into an email, I see the image, but once it is sent, only the image's filename is displayed within my email--the recipient is able to view the image as normal on their end. This image issue has not affected image searches or anything other than in Gmail using Firefox--I can see the images when using Google Chrome and Safari. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated!

Recently updated my 2012 MacBook Pro to macOS 10.15. After Firefox has been open for a while, it stops loading webpages. The title of the page loads, the browser window goes white and never displays anything; the page attempts to load continuously and navigation buttons don't respond. Other than that, Firefox operates and responds as though nothing's wrong. Meanwhile all other browsers can navigate the web just fine. Quitting Firefox (from the menu bar) causes the windows to close but an entry remains in "Force Quit" for an extended period. It can be forced closed from here, but doing so causes further attempts to open Firefox to have no windows appear; the only way to reopen Firefox appears to be to restart the whole computer. If allowed to close the rest of the way on its own- which can take up to 10 minutes- the crash dialog appears and Firefox can be restarted.

This has continued to happen despite repairing the drive, refreshing Firefox, removing and reinstalling Firefox, disabling hardware acceleration, running in safe mode, etc. There are no extensions installed and I have not synced my Firefox account.

Every time I open Firefox it brings up a screen as if I am a brand new user starting out for the very first time. The disk image in my downloads folder has long since been deleted, so I'm pretty sure it's not running from that. I went and looked at "application binary" and it gave me a headache, plus there was no indication in the prior "support" replies of what the changes I might or might not observe therein would mean, so I was unmotivated to keep turning Firefox off and on and then checking to see if any of the characters in the very long text string had changed. I seem to have about 10 profiles, none of which have been created by me on purpose. I tried opening a couple of them, and got messages about various updates Firefox wanted to perform, but none of the opening screens had my information loaded. I've just lost a half hour of my life down this rathole this morning, and I still haven't gotten around to completing the search which was the reason I opened Firefox this morning in the first place. Imma have to go back and use Safari I guess, since Safari isn't suffering from "Susan Amnesia"
