I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

Hi all,

Apple has revised/updated their iCloud web portal. The backspace key no longer registers in the iCloud Calendar app on the web. This is specific to Firefox on Windows - I've tried other web browsers to access iCloud web portal and Chrome's backspace key registers so its not an Apple iCloud problem, just Firefox. Is there a setting or do I have to wait for an update?

Thanks in advance.

I've encountered a very weird behavior: when selecting where to save a file or selecting a file to upload, the browser hangs 100% of the time.

Even when I go to about:memory, click Load, the path selection window appears - regardless of whether I select a file or close the window, the browser hangs and the window stops responding. I tried waiting for several hours - to no avail. Only restarting helps. Same with the upload selection window - regardless of whether I selected a file to upload or closed the selection window, the browser hangs. Before freezing permanently, the mouse cursor stops moving, then lags around a bit before recovering.

I tried cleaning download history, cache, recreated profile, restarted without extensions, in safe mode, disabled antivirus - always the same result.

Please advise me, maybe someone has encountered something like this - I really don't want to start using Chrome. My OS is Windows 11. Thanks in advance.

Hello!

I have the problem that every of my most visited sites are loading normal fast except for YouTube.

YouTube needs about 2 to 3 seconds to load the site itself and the thumbnails like "lagging" pictures which are rendering real slow while my other most visited sites like Twitch, Reddit or Twitter are loading in about 1 second or less. (i have installed the "Page Load Time" addon to check that).

I have only installed uBlock and nothing else.

Firefox browser had failed repeatedly when trying to display sections within 2 websites. I receive "Can not load the page" at Blue Cross and Blue Shield and download freezes the page, site and my computer at a credit card company- requiring end task and complete shut down of computer. This has been occurring for 2 months. I do not have any issue loading these sites or sections via Edge or Chrome. Will this be corrected with the name change? Will there be another browser page that is more reliable?

If not, you don’t need to change your name on Firefox browser. You can just close it down and I will move to Edge or Chrome.

None of your Troubleshooting answers on your Support page covers my situation. I have cleared history, verified settings based on internet articles from others with this issue. Please have someone contact me directly. I’m tired of trying to fix this issue with your browser.

Why does FireFox not allow me to play videos in Youtube above the resolution 360p. Since now FireFox won't allow me to play YouTube videos from 720p or 1080p anymore. While other browser's allow me to play above 360p up to 4K resolution. What is going on with FireFox this never happen before until the upgrade of FireFox in Manajaro ARM.

Video Playback Issue on Fedora 38 - "Media Playback Aborted due to Corruption"

I'm encountering consistent video playback issues on Firefox while running Fedora 38. The error message I receive when attempting to play videos from certain sites, notably LinkedIn and Twitter (now X), is:

  • The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.*

Furthermore, when examining Firefox's console while attempting to play a video, I observed the following error:

  • [Child 5999, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: Decoder=7fdb3c55a100 Decode error: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) - mozilla::MediaResult mozilla::FFmpegDataDecoder<60>::InitDecoder(AVDictionary**): Couldn't open avcodec: file /builddir/build/BUILD/firefox-118.0/dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachineBase.cpp:166*

Steps to Reproduce: 1. Navigate to LinkedIn or X (previously Twitter). 2. Attempt to play any video content. 3. Observe the aforementioned error.

Additional Details: - OS: Fedora 38 - Firefox version: Initially 117.0.1, then updated to 118, both 64-bit. - This issue does not occur on Google Chrome on the same system. - I have attempted the following troubleshooting steps without success:

 1. Updated Firefox to the latest version.
 2. Enabled DRM content.
 3. Booted Firefox in Safe Mode.
 4. Disabled hardware acceleration.
 5. Cleared cache and cookies.
 6. Used a Flatpak version of Firefox.

This issue has significantly impacted my user experience, and I hope to find a resolution soon. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

In trying to use features of various apps, the app tries to connect to Firefox, resulting in an error message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." But in fact, Firefox IS running. An example of this problem is invoking updates of some apps; another is in Zoom trying to login using SSO. It leaves me stuck, and the only solution I have found is to use Edge instead of Firefox.

This isn't a constant issue for me, but occasionally the browser will suddenly break such that when I switch tabs, nothing actually updates until I do something like restore/maximise the window. I can still interact with the page itself, but whether using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts, changing, opening, or closing tabs, or even typing in the navigation bar, won't do anything until I resize the window again. I haven't been able to figure out any pattern to when this state triggers, but after it does, it doesn't clear up without closing and reopening the browser. I have recorded a video showing this behavior but I am unable to upload it here, and still images would not properly convey the issue.

Hello,

Amazon Prime no longer saves my place in TV series I'm watching. If I was 15 minutes in on episode 9 of something, when I came back it would still be in the same place, even months later. Now it doesn't do that anymore, even if I come back a few minutes later.

Amazon says Amazon Prime does not work very well on Firefox, and my issue does work fine on the other browsers, but I don't want to use them if I can avoid it. Firefox works fine for Hulu and Netflix and the others. I don't have any other issues with Firefox other than this one.

Does anyone know anything about this and possibly how to make it work like it used to?

Thank you.

Since my last Firefox update, tabs crash or freeze and cannot be resolved. Each time, I have to shut down Firefox to open a tab.

I have never had any trouble with Firefox before so this is a pain.
