Fedora 31 box, 5.8.13 distro kernel, distro firefox

I play online poker at https://www.playwpt.com/ With firefox 81.0.1, my entire computer will be frozen/unresponsive within 30 sec of playing. I revert to 80.0.1, I can play as usual. I haven't seen other problems with other sites.

I've had a similar issue before, I think it was the 78-79 update, something about paging getting stuck, something something.

Anybody else run into this? Fix coming?

HELP!!

Comcast keeps dropping my home network IP address ONLY when I am using the Firefox browser.

When I open the browser to access the internet (any site) within a few minutes or less the home network IP address is dropped by Comcast and I lose the internet. This does NOT happen when I am using Chrome.

My laptop wi-fi can still see - and connect to - other wi-fi networks in the vicinity and if I turn off the wi-fi for a few seconds and then turn it back on again connection is restored.

I have raised this issue with Comcast four (4) times and they have not addressed the issue, so my choice now is: stop using Firefox, keep turning the wi-fi off and on again or..........?

Can someone please tell me what is going on here and ideally how to to fix this issue - thank you.

Hi,

I'm on a Lenovo Yoga convertible and everytime I switch to tablet mode and tap in a text field in FF the virtual keyboard opens for a very short time, FF flickers once and the keyboard closes again. I know that this problem has appeared in the past and apparently been solved for other people, but none of the workarounds I came across work for me... The problem also occurs when I boot in tablet mode and all drivers are up to date. All other applications work flawlessly and a FF reinstall sadly hasn't fixed my problem.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad

Kind regards Jonas

Firefox takes over 30 seconds to load a tab that I've already opened and seen before.

I mean tabs that have already displayed some content, I switch to a tab, then go back to the tab I was previously on, and it takes over 30 seconds to load, sometimes over 3 minutes. This is making firefox unusable.

And because it doesn't happen all the time, it's not very reproducible for me, but it happens often. Is there a way to fix this?

I am a long-time Firefox user, but I've noticed a recurring problem with Firefox on my Ubuntu system (Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS, 64 bit; Gnome 3.6.3; Windowing system Wayland), which is that some of the text will sporadically be disrupted.

When I use "Inspect Element," it seems that the font being used is Twemoji Mozilla, which is surprising as the field is plain text, not emojis or wingdings.

The two images attached are what I'm seeing.

I'm using Firefox 81 on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS When left unattended, Firefox (MainThread process exactly) continues to consume memory, and it returned to system only when I open about:memory or about:performance pages.

On about:memory / Measure I see that most memory is consumed by structured-clone-holder item 6.5Gb. WebContent process consumes stable amount (2..3Gb), because I have many open tabs, but this amount is not changed during the time.

Are there any methods to understand what is caused the structured-clone-holder to grow so big?

Works fine ... sometimes for days, sometimes for hours, then it crashes. (I don't join the entire log entries, it's some 5000 lines; so here are the always repeating lines of warnings and errors)

Ever since version 81.0 back in September, Firefox has been closing then reopening randomly, is it possible to revert back to 80.0 as to not have this issue? As running a scan causes Firefox to close too, even when you just opened it. Seems 81.0 is the problem, even when installed folder is added to excemptions.

Please look into this, maybe 81.3 or 82.0 will finally resolve this issue.

Since Facebook imposed its new version on users, I find that often, when I share something from an external source (like a newspaper article), as soon as I post it and the popup disappears, Firefox immediately opens a new tab that says 'close this tab to continue'. It's very irritating. Does anyone else have this problem, and is there a fix for it? Thanks in advance

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 81.0.2 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

I am running Firefox inside Windows Virtual Desktop and I have had several issues with performance. At times the I will only have 6-8 tabs open and the entire application locks up and is unresponsive. I'm unable to do anything until I can kill it from Task Manager. Even after I have stopped the process it appears that there are still processes under my user that don't go away. In the same manner, I've had the browser lock up and the screen goes completely white and again has to be closed out through task manager. I have turned off Hardware acceleration, turned off any proxy option, only have last pass running as an add-on and I'm running the latest version.

Any help would be appreciated!
