Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

Firefox freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds, even in Safe Mode. Task Manager shows one or two of firefox's sub-tasks as "Not responding" and CPU at 100%.

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

There is one menu short in a screen, when I use Firefox to my bank. The file "2021-02-14.png" is missing a menu with "Forbrugsoverblik Forbrugsagenter Etiketter" on black background. The file "2021-02-14(1).png" is the same <prt sc> but in Edge browser. The file "2021-02-14(2).png" is the same but in Crome.

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

I can't send any links, because you need to be logged in.

When i use Firefox and i'm logged in YT, time labels and red progress bar at the bottom of thumbnails aren't visible. When i'm logged out, everything works fine. Also, video progress seems not to work too.

Things i've already done: -turned off all extensions -reinstalled firefox browser

I explored html, and it looks like something blocks browser from putting some elements into code or whatever. The time label is called "ytd-thumbnail-overlay-time-status-renderer" and it's contained in "overlays" div. So when i'm logged out from YT, everything works fine, but when i'm logged in, this "overlays" div is empty.

I use 85.0.2-64bit on a Windows 10 PC.

For the last month or so, when I click on any of the headline links from the news.google homepage, I'm shown only a blank page. No error message. The url looks normal.

-The links all work when I use Edge.

-I do have Add-ons, but I turned them all off, restarted Firefox, and the links still fail. Any remedies? Suggestions? Some setting I don't know about?

So after the wonderful weather the east coast has got over the past few days. Internet is out with no eta when it will be fixed. So I have to use apple hotspot. Ive noticed on firefox I only get up to 2.5 mbps download speeds. If I do a speed test it shows 36 to 44 mbps . Booted onto my old ssd drive with the same version of windows ten and as far as I know firefox. Firefox works fine on that drive. Ive also found out microsoft edge also works fine on my main m.2 ssd . I have no idea why firefox would be so slow, its like its limiting my speeds . But I checked and the throttling is turned off. I tried to uninstall firefox and reinstall didn't help.

I have no idea why speed test.net shows im getting 40+ mbps and youtube videos or just surfing the web is stuck at 2.5 mbps. any help or ideas would be great. Thanks.

Bonjour,

lorsque je cherche à me connecter sur le LCL par Fiefox sur mon PC, la page m'est (presque) systématiquement signalée comme contrefaite, et je suis absolument persuadé que ce signalement est erroné

les banques sont des escrocs, nous sommes peut-être d'accord mais des escrocs légaux et autorisés, et je suis bien gêné par ce signalement.

je pense qu'il y a un loup sous bogue

Hi

I want to report a bug, that annoy me at the highest :)

Firefox doesn't autofocus the Search bar on ctrl+t when in fullscreen (by search bar I mean the address bar)

Step to reproduce : - Go in fullscreen (e.g Youtube vid) - ctrl+t for opening a new tab - And the search bar isn't focused (it should be the case, and it do it when it's not in fullscreen)

And yes I know that I can just press F6 for focus it, but i'm lazy

I think the title says it all: Can't add Firefox to Microsoft Focus Assist Feature (Windows 10)

I like this feature because it lets me disable notifications while filming or working on other projects but currently I cannot add Firefox to the priority list.

It may be a new feature to you (like it was to me) so here's the easiest way to access it.

Focus Assist (Right click on notifications Icon in bottom right corner) > Customize Priority List > Apps

I can add Google Chrome and other web browsers but not Firefox.

Anyone know what this is or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.
