For a couple of months now, my favorite browser, Firefox, has been locking up on me. It started this year right after an update. It suddenly locks up! Completely! Sometimes I cannot get it to close. I have had to shut down my pc to get rid of a locked up Firefox browser. These days I only need to right click the Firefox tab on the task bar and click "Close Window". That has been a big help.

So, I give up on Firefox and made Chrome the default browser. Then behind the scenes, someone installs a patch to the main server and fixes the problem.

I check it often and when I see that you fixed it, I set it back to default browser for about 2 or 3 weeks and then Firefox locks up again. I shut it down and switch to the Chrome browser again.

Back and forth I go. It locks up. I switch to Chrome. You finally fix it yet again. I try it after a few days and discover that you fixed it and make it default browser again.

And here I am again! I cleared the lock up by right clicking on the taskbar Firefox tab. Now I get a dialog box that has an option to shut down Firefox. Then I see a time bar move across the dialog box and close. Nice touch!

Now I switched to the Chrome Browser again and I am waiting for you to fix your Firefox browser for the 5th or 6th time this year.

Let me give you some advice. Burn it to the ground and start over. What you are doing does not help!

Within 24 hours this weekend I was notified by my anti virus application (Avast) that they are no longer supporting Firefox browser (to concentrate on Outlook and Chrome), and a political news website that I frequent (Meidas) blocked me with a "captcha" type puzzle. The website said my browser was mimicking robot or bot use. I was presented with a puzzle requiring me to slide a tab rightward. It repeatedly told me I had slid the tab incorrectly. I believe all of this happened after an update of Firefox about the middle of last week.

So within the past couple of days my twitter/x display setting suddenly switched to "Lights out" from "Default". I can reset it in t/x settings but if I close my browser it resets back to "Lights out" on reopen.

However, this same change happened with other browsers chrome and brave, but if I reset it on t/x it remains changed for those browsers if I close them and reopen.

When I say close I do not mean just that window/tab. I mean close the browser completely and restart it.

What do I need to do to get FF to retain this t/x setting?

Hello!

I recently decided to switch to Firefox Developer for personal choices and upon looking at certain sites that use custom fonts, a few of them break and show the default font (Times New Roman) in their places instead. I've tried many solutions to fix this such as adjusting the settings, downloading TrueType fonts, and even messing with the settings in about:config and still the text would not show up properly. For some strange reason, though, the font's themselves seem to be working on the regular version of Firefox but not the developers' edition. I will post examples of my problem below if that helps.

Thank you!

I have 3 such counters and have stopped working in the latest version of Firefox on my desktop. They work with Firefox on my iPad and Android phone. They also work fine if I use the Edge Browser but I prefer using Firefox as I have for many years.

The embedded code is pretty simple, here it is for one of my counters... <a href="https://www.freecounterstat.com" title="visitor counter">Hit Counter for Financials</a> Can you help? Thanks, Bill T

Every time I open the Firefox browser and start typing something in the address bar, the address bar removes everything I just typed after a few characters, which makes me type usually half the websites name on accident because of this bug. After the first occasion when launching the browser, the address bar works completely fine again.

Once again, Firefox updated itself w/o warning. As a result, the YouTube list of videos I wanted to watch has been lost. The "Restored Session" only contains the current video, not the queue of videos I'd been looking forward to. I had Firefox set NOT to auto-update, but apparently the last Update changed that as well. I was happy with the previous version, and didn't need or want an Update, at least not now. Could you please either fix the Restore Session to include the WHOLE web page, including YouTube queues, or make the Do Not Auto-Update choice persistent through Updates. Better yet, both. (I've just reset the about:preferences>settings>General>FireFox Updates>Allow FireFox to... box to "... let me choose to install them." Let's keep it that way!)

Hi Firefox. I have been using Firefox since the 90's. I love the feature that you can save a url complete with that website name, icon, and colors. My desktop is very colorful. I just did an update on Firefox in the last two days. Lets just call it the last update. After the last update an hour ago I just received a notification that Malwarebytes blocked what the call Malvertising. As I said, I have been using Firefox since the 90's as my default browser and I have never seen this before on any browser. There were an few short periods in the last few months when Firefox would just lock up my pc, and I switched browsers to Chrome. But as soon as you corrected the issue, I switched back to Firefox. I got to admit that this Malvertising notification has disturbed me a little. I have Edge, Chrome, and Opera browsers installed as well but I like you the best. Please explain to my why I got this notification from Malwarebytes. BTY, Malwarebytes found a keylogger in my PC that Eset, and Windows Defender scans did not find. So, I am a fan of Malwarebytes as well. I downloaded the Malwarebytes notification of the Malvertising Notification into .txt format, but the button below this says images. If I can send it, and you want it, just let me know.
