Firefox issue

Post by Debugger » Wed Apr 03, 2019 10:46 pm

For some time, Firefox automatically starts in a very short time (a second) closes.
What's that supposed to mean? Although I do not use Firefox for a long time.

Explain further?

Might be that the "initiation" of FF starts with one process, which then hands off to a separate process, which ordinarily is not seen, noticed?
Not sure if that's the case?
Perhaps better chance of something like that happening if you're using the Profile Manager (to select a Profile for startup).

I did not change anything in the Firefox settings. Every few minutes, the Firefox open window. I have no idea how to solve it. I've never had a similar situation in my life!

Still don't understand what you're describing.

Does the same happen if you restart in Safe Mode?

Safe Mode? No, because I have a closed Firefox, but the tab from time to time appears in the taskbar and a very short time appears a white window.
I was looking for similar problems on forums, but they probably only concern a similar problem, but not the same.


If it continues to work so badly, I will have to try using the very old versions of Firefox (smaller than 60)

Are you using Flash Video Downloader [extension] (FVD, some youtube video downloader)?
It's turned malicious & does what you say.
