Hi. Starting somewhat recently, Firefox has been getting in the way of me downloading certain PDFs which I know to be fine but which it thinks are insecure or a security hazard. I'd like to disable this security "feature" permanently. How can I do this? Thanks!

Hi guys! Stripe.com crashes FF. The site only displays about halfway down its homepage, then crashes FF. I've cleared cookies, all history, removed and reloaded FF, turned off tracking protection for Stripe at the address bar, lowered tracking settings to standard in FF, turned off hardware acceleration, and contacted Stripe directly. But they can't help with browser specific issues accept to offer standard solutions, which I already tried. Also, Stripe works fine in Chrome.

I'm using 1password extension, and for plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. I deactivated both those plugins but no use. Ideas? Thanks! Ken

Hello,

since a week or so portal I frequently use - www.wp.pl started to work really slow. It crashes all the time, browser becomes inoperative, closes by itself, etc. It obviously happens to all pages, articles, services related to wp.pl. I cannot open a single page from wp.pl domain without issues. Before it was working completely fine, all of this started to occur for no reason. Also, it happens to wp.pl only. All other pages/portals/platforms function normally. I checked on different browsers - IE, Edge, Chrome and it works fine. I also cleared cache/cookies/browser history in Firefox and this didn't help at all. Therefore there must be something wrong with Firefox browser. Could you please investigate?

Thanks, Jacek

For the past two weeks, I've noticed that embedded maps make my browser immediately crash. I initially thought it was a Firefox problem, but I have been having a similar issue with Safari. This does NOT happen on my iPhone using the same two browsers. This also does not seem to effect Google Maps or embedded Google Maps, but embedded maps from other services. Anyway, I'm posting here because Firefox conveniently provides crash data, I'm not sure what else the cause could be and I'm hoping someone can help.

Two websites this has been consistently happening with are The Empire State Trail bike path (https://empiretrail.ny.gov/) and a NYC vaccine finder website (https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/). Firefox immediately crashes, though with the EST website it seems to be tied to the pathway of the trail being drawn (crashing after I've zoomed in a few times and the path has to regenerate). Safari doesn't totally crash, but forces a site reload and after it fails a second time says it can't display the site.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I'm on the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7), Firefox and Safari and seem to have all security updates for all.

Here's a link to the latest crash data: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/1389c870-51cf-4790-b0a0-fd01f0211202

I have tried everything and cannot manage to load any webpage that prompts a reCAPTCHA. The tab immediately crashes.

1- I've tried several webpages. They all work well until a reCAPTCHA pops up, the tab crashes and creates a dump file 2- I tried uninstalling Firefox, including erasing profiles and all Mozilla folders then reinstalling, and selecting refresh. It sill happens. No addons or extensions, and HW acceleration on and off 3- The problems goes away if I run Firefox on Troubleshooting Mode

Version is 94.0.2 (64 bit) running on Windows 10 21H1 on an i7 1165G7

Am I missing something? Is there a way to do a cleaner install?

Thanks for the help!

Since I upgraded to version 94.0.1 I can no longer access games at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. All I get is the initial splash screen.

It does work on MS Edge and since I no longer have Adobe Flash installed on my computer that shouldn't be an issue.

I have also submited this question to Shockwave. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

I cannot turn on the audio input and the audio output in Discord web application when running Firefox for desktop PC. The advice from Mozilla Support knowledge base regarding how to enable microphone did not help, since there is always no access request from discord.com detected in "Preferences" -> "Privacy & Security" -> "Permissions".

I am using the latest version of Firefox (94.0.1) on Windows 7 SP 1 and Windows 10 20H2. In Discord Support knowledge base the app is claimed to support Firefox version 80+.

I believe this started with 94.0.2 but could be 94.0.1. Looking at various things in Easysnews.com, for instance thumbnails, the title for that item used to change from blue (Unvisted Links) to brown (Visited Links) and keep the brown color until I exited Easynews. Now it does not. In another case, looking at my list of favorite groups, the group name will turn brown as long as my mouse is over it but it will not stick if I select that item.

I am not using system colors and Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above is set to Only With High Contrast themes. I tried the other two choices but they really created a mess.

I have also tried deleting any easynews cookies to no effect.

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.

Hello - I've been unable to stream Twitch content on Firefox 94 for the last day or so, however, the issue impacts Youtube and Vimeo live feeds as well.

1. No outages in my area (Twitch works fine on my phone) 2. Tried Firefox in Troubleshoot mode (which disables all extensions) Twitch still broke. 3. Tried Incognito and Troubleshoot mode, Twitch still broke. 4. Cleared cookies and cache, plus Incognito and Troubleshoot mode, Twitch still broke. 5. Tried a different browser, Twitch works fine on Edge 6. I tried all of the above using a 4G Hotspot instead of my fibre connection, same issue

I’ve done some side by side testing of Edge and Firefox today, streaming the same content on each at the same time. Twitch runs fine on Edge. Twitch loads on Firefox and the chat looks fine. The chat arrives simultaneously on Edge and Firefox, it’s just the audio and video won’t play on Firefox. The audio and video don’t work on the ads either.

Watching a Youtube game stream side by side on both Edge and Firefox gives a slightly different result. Again, the chat feed is almost simultaneous, maybe a fraction faster on Firefox. However, while the audio and video run fine on both Edge and Firefox, there is a 15 second lag on Firefox. Both are playing full 1080 video.

So there is a definite issue with how Firefox is buffering audio/video content. The 15 second delay between the audio video stream and the chat I am seeing today with Youtube is what I was experiencing on Twitch over the weekend. I noticed it on streams that include a chat window on the video. I wasn’t overly concerned about the latency issue, as long as I had audio and video. Both of those stopped working for Twitch on Firefox yesterday. It could be that Twitch has slightly richer content than Youtube and that’s why Twitch isn’t working at all on Firefox?

OK, so I’ve installed the Twitch app for Windows and done some side by side testing with that. Interestingly, the app has a couple of seconds latency over Edge but it works fine. I shall use the app for now but would prefer to use Firefox if the buffering/streaming issues can be resolved.

I am unable to log onto investor.vanguard.com using Firefox. It has worked fine until last week. I confirmed the username/password are correct (they work fine on my phone app and using the Microsoft browser). I contacted Vanguard and they said they have not had any reported issues on the website.

When I click on the LOGON icon, a blue halo appears around the icon, but I cannot complete the logon. All other icons on the home page work properly on Firefox, but the LOGON does not. Deleting cookies did not help.

Are other Firefox users experiencing this on Vanguard, and if so, is there a fix?

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

In the last few days, I started having multiple web sites blocked with "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE". They work fine with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, and I trust them. One example is http://www.wumb.org, a public radio station. I found nothing in Firefox Help to bypass this security flag and go to the page.

If there is a work-around, please make it show up when searching for SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE in Firefox Help. If there is no work-around, please add one. Otherwise, Firefox, my favorite browser, will quickly get a bad reputation.
