Hey there,

I have the following issue with Firefox, is this maybe something I should report to the Ubuntu support or directly to Bugzilla?

Steps to reproduce: ---

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Go to a page that contains an embedded video that is not playing automatically, e.g. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/sound_of_metal
  3. Do not play the video

Environment --- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0 Firefox version: 83.0 (64-bit) pulseaudio version: 13.99.2 OS: Ubuntu 20.10 64-bit Gnome version: 3.38.1 Windowing system: Wayland CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8565U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8 RAM: 15,5 GiB GPU: Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics 620 (WHL GT2)

Actual results --- pulseaudio process is spawned and rapidly becomes the most CPU consuming process on my machine (especially after a few seconds, when the Web Content ones start to cool down). Even though no sound is actually played! When switching to another tab with no embedded video, pulseaudio keeps overloading the CPU. This only stops after closing Firefox.

Expected results --- I'm not sure this is what should be expected, but I'll give it a shot:

  • pulseaudio process should only be spawned when actually playing a media that requires audio
  • pulseaudio should not be the #1 CPU consuming process
  • pulseaudio process should at the very least not massively use CPU when no sound is playing

Hello! I need help on a very strange problem I had recently with my Firefox. I have Firefox 83.0 64-bit installed on my Windows 7 Home Basic desktop PC. Some time after maybe version 81 and above, I noticed that my Firefox randomly closes and reopens without showing any error messages. I noticed that the most consistent time this phenomenon happens is when I turn on my PC and start Firefox, it almost always closes and reopens, sometimes even more than once. It acts like the browser crashed, but the weird thing is it doesn't show any error message saying that the browser crashed. Once I opened Firefox at least once after I turn on my PC, even if I manually closed it and reopen it later, it will not crash on Firefox startup, it will probably only crash again after I restarted my PC and open Firefox. Also rarely, Firefox randomly closes and reopens whenever I browser whatever website with no reason whatsoever, but this only happens 3 out of 10 times.

I opened Troubleshooting Information to look for clues on what might be causing this, and I noticed "Launcher Process" is "Disabled due to failure". I am not sure what that means though, but I have a feeling this might be related somehow?

If anyone has any idea on what's going on, please help me. Thanks!

Hallo und guten Tag,

ich möchte gern mehrere websites als Startseite haben, wenn ich den Firefox browser öffne. Wie das geht wird auf der Firefox Seite sehr gut erklärt.

Zwar ist es mir gelungen, google als Startseite durch drag & drop auf das Haus Symbol zu ziehen. Jetzt würde ich habe gern weitere Registerkarten als Startseite festlegen.

Wenn ich (wie in der Erklärung) jedoch auf die Menüschaltfläche mit den drei Strichen klicke und danach auf "Startseite" klicke, ist das Fenster "Startseite und neue Fenster" leider inaktiv, so dass ich nicht weiterkomme. Wie kann ich dieses inaktive Fenster aktivieren. Wo liegt der Fehler.

Ich hoffe sehr, dass mir bei diesem Problem jemand helfen kann und würde mich über eine Antwort sehr freuen. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Beste Grüße, Sabine

So I've noticed how some video files are able to be played back in Firefox. Some are not able to what so ever, for example I've created a text video using this FFPMEG command: ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc=duration=10:size=1280x720:rate=30 testsrc.mp4

which created the following file: https://astolfo.nl/i/z2ada.mp4 Both the uploaded version and the local .mp4 are unable to be played back in Firefox. However opening them up in edge chromium both files play back perfectly. Besides Edge I've also confirmed it plays back nicely in MPV.

I've tried Hardware acceleration, but both having it on and off did not change the fact that these files wouldn't want to playback in Firefox. Safe mode also did not effect this issue.

System Linux mint 18.2 Sonya

Video DownloadHelper Version 7.4.0 Browser locale: en-US Production build Built on Tue Dec 15 2020 17:14:16 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time) Build options: browser=firefox

I used to be able to record mainly music from YouTube and some other sources using video download helper with the Firefox add-on.

It used to direct me sometimes to using the companion app, then at other times not.

The thing is now that it starts to record with a blue numbered disc showing. It gets almost to the end of the download, then the circle turns red and I get the following type of error messages – see below.

I also do not have the same layout on the 3 colour disc download helper button.

Updated the add-on but cannot find any specific help.

Would be very grateful for a simple fix, or complicated, that – OR, is there a better product??

Seasons greetings

I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

Hi There

I just want to be able to access my webmail through Firefox like I use to last week. I prefer Firefox's features to other browsers.

No onw seems to be able to help me.

As I looked at the Application Basics under Troubleshooting info, I noticed that under Add ONs there are some that I was not aware of, such as extensions for Amazon.com, Bing, ebay, Google. Are these added by default by Firefox? Under the heading ENABLED, each of them is listed as TRUE.

Under Manage Your Extensions (about:Addons), none of them is shown as Enabled.

I am wondering why these extensions are listed under Add ONs under Application Basics and what's the implication of these being there. There seems to be some "discrepancy" between the 2 locations where they are listed, one of the showing them Enabled, the other one not listing them as Enabled....

Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this nor am I sure that this isn't just one of my many installed extensions being wonky -- but is there a way to keep the volume meter at the same level across tabs? More specifically, I peruse the old.reddit.com/r/livestreamfail website and I open each thread in a new tab with the option to block the audio and video from autoplaying enabled and the volume meter is always set at 0% on every embedded clip. I wish the behavior of the video player to leave the volume slider at the percentage from the last time I manipulated the volume slider from a previous clip, that way I don't need to touch the volume slider whenever I start playing the new video. Is this the behavior of the twitch video player or is there a config setting I can change to achieve the desired behavior? Shouldn't blocking video inherently block audio too? Why does autoplay option always set the volume to 0%?

I'm on updated OpenSuse Tumbleweed with Firefox version 83.0

My firefox extensions include: Facebook Container, GNOME Shell integration, Reddit Enhancement Suite, SponsorBlock for Youtube, uBlock Origin and Weather

Looks like Firefox uses Google to decide which sites to block when using FF. I know how to turn it off and get around the block, but FF seems to be following the thinking of now allowing conservative Christian views on their browser by using Google. This may backfire and is not an open use of the internet as FF claims. The site being blocked is https://www.toddstarnes.com/.

You may not agree with him, but that doesn't mean blocking the site.
