Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

I use this workaround to fix tearing on my mediacenter powered by a intel baytrail hardware.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Firefox/Tweaks#Enable_Legacy_OpenGL_compositor

until v88, it was working fine.

With v89, the setting layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true has no effect. The "about:support" page reports Compositing: webrender (software) whatever the value true or false.

I had to downgrade to v88.

Suddenly videos won't play on one particular news website (others are fine), I've tried every possible solution I could find on the net (clear cache, uncheck hardware accelleration, allow audio & video, fiddled with permissions and protection,...). MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014), recently updated to Big Sur 11.4 (hoping the problem would go away, issue already there with Catalina), 2,6 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, video Intel Iris 1536 MB. Please, can anyone help?

For the last week or so I've been having a frequent problem with YouTube not loading-see attached screen shot. Sometimes reloading the page works, but, not all the time. Cookies and cache are cleaned several times a day. I have the same issue, but, much less frequently in Chrome. So I'm not sure if this is a browser problem or a YouTube problem. I appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks

Ever since I began using a Mac desktop computer (in 2018), every time it was shut down or restarted, all of my Firefox settings, add-ons, bookmarks, logins, cookies, and history disappeared. Everything is returned to the defaults as if I never had Firefox on my computer before. I never had this problem with any Windows computer, so I thought this problem must be compatibility with Apple not being good. But it works fine as long as I don't close my browser completely. What is going on? Is this fixable?

My operating system is still Mojave, but Firefox is up to date. I only have a desktop computer and like it that way.

Hi for a while now, few months Firefox crash like crazy on my PC

Sometimes it would just crash at start, and refused to open Sometimes tab start crashing, and eventually firefox crashes

Common sites where i see the crash happens are cnn.com and nba.com

I usually restart my PC , refresh firefox or reinstall it to get rid of the crashes but this is very tiring , very tiring

I am sure its something on my PC that causing the conflict, because even reinstalling doesnt entirely fix it

But i have no clue what it could be

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

This is not a question but a statement of disappointment: I am very disappointed with the latest update. I really, really don't like the latest version. Web pages (i.e. YouTube and others take too long to load and execute), the search option on the new tab is useless (I hate that it goes to the URL bar), spacing in the bookmarks list is greater which makes it take longer to find a bookmark, UI updates are Meh, etc.., etc.., etc..

I've always stayed away from Google and MS browsers. Firefox has always been my browser and it now sucks just like the rest! I'm going back to v88.x until you get your shit together and fix things.
