WHERE IS MY BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR??? Every time I update Firefox (now 109), I end up with all kinds of problems! NOW, I can't see my bookmark toolbar. All the help articles tells me how to show it or how to bookmark a page, which I already did multiple times. But this issue is never solved. If I can't get this resolved, I'm going to MS Edge.

Hi, I like to go to random websites sometimes, but I recently found out that site evil.com tries to use an exploit and to install a malicious file. I wonder if it's a problem with browser. I'm using waterfox, a firefox-based browser. I'm attaching a screenshot from windows defender logs. I don't know if it's important, but I have a virtualization enabled.

So, for awhile now when I go to some sites, the screen suddenly starts flashing, then it jitters and turns some light color (like a light green; not blue screen, not black). If I guess where the "X" is to shut down the tab that has the video, I can end this. Often, like on youtube, I find the problem is some ad video that was playing. The rest of the site is ok. But not always.

One site I wrote down a few days where it happened: https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/eagles-face-giants-2022-playoff-opener?cid=sm_npd_rsn_phi_fb_mn&fbclid=IwAR3rGUEa0W8fElrzCWANSIUpti9VKlbn0iHyvcFsviajYExo5tcRSyWBJXA

scroll down to video and everything blinks, becomes unuseable

It happens in lots of places, though. It is not per se a YouTube problem or just a problem at NBCSports. I shell out to MS Edge, and it seems to handle everything fine, so I'm assuming at this point it is a browser issue.

One last point: after this happen the screen display is degraded even after I manage to shut down the offending tab or video. It takes a Log off/log back in or reboot to fix everything. The degradation takes the form of making the screen look a bit like a pointilist painting, although that's an exaggeration.

FF 109.0.1 64 bit Windows 11 NVidia GeFORCE RTX 3060 running studio driver 526.98 (I have switched periodically from / to their gaming driver, which doesn't seem to matter)

Any help, appreciated.

I'm not able to any DRM content on my Firefox. It's playing properly on Chrome as well as Prime Video apps on my Windows. I tried submitting crash reports from my account.

I tried reading Get help section, but most of the doubts were on MacOS.

Windows specification Edition Windows 11 Pro Version 22H2 Installed on ‎29/‎9/‎2022 OS build 22621.1105 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22638.1000.0

It has been happening with the latest update for last 1 month. It was working earlier as expected.

I'm using Firefox Version 109.0.1 (64-bit)

I've already tried reinstalling Firefox on my Windows, but It didn't work.

For the second update in a row, Firefox has caused issues with two of the web sites I use most frequently. The first is Fidelity.com. If it will load at all, it takes a near eternity to do so. The second is the web site for my medicare insurance plan - it causes me to be locked out of my on-line account. These issues first occurred on the second to last update when both of these problems first appeared. I almost chalked it up to coincidence. But now that it has happened again (and only those two web sites) with the latest update I installed (ver. 109.1), I know that it is a problem with Firefox. I have enjoyed the privacy and reliability of Firefox for years. But if updates are going to eliminate my access to my most used web sites, then I'll have to find another browser.

I recently changed to a 4G network based router because of poor internet speeds in the area.

Since changing I have noticed that when using my TP-Link AC1900 network adapter, I can no longer access www.google.com specifically. I can still access the site on Edge (using the adapter) and when I change from the adapter to the primary wifi card in the laptop, Google works again in Firefox.

Due to the things I've tried (listed below) I've come to believe that it must be some strange interaction between the adapter, firefox, and the network.

I've tried the following: - Deleting all cookies and data - Reset all preferences in Firefox - Disabling and re-enabling addons - Fresh install of Windows (including Firefox) - Reinstalling TP-Link Drivers - Changing DNS to Googles servers - Firefox network settings (no-proxy etc...) - Checking the firewall settings on Windows (disabling, allowing firefox.exe, etc...) - Restarting the router - Changed some of the DNS settings in about:config, but resetting after to be sure

I've looked around for pretty much every similar post, some people saying the issue resolved itself, but any solutions I've found so far haven't worked. This is beginning to become a bit frustrating as I mainly use Google to search :( Hopefully someone who's had a smilar issue can help me resolve it, thanks!

With increasing frequency, when I attempt to load a website -- well-established ones that I've had bookmarked for years -- I initially get one of two messages: either the site I'm about to go to is unsecure (http) or that the web address isn't recognized.

Yet, in the first case, when I go to the "unsecured" site anyway, it is in fact a secure (https) site.

And in the second case, if I hit the option to "try again", it connects instantly.

What's going on here? BTW, this happens whether I'm using a VPN or not. And sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

Thanks for any help.

Hi

I only have this problem on https://seb.se/ and it worked on my old computer with windows 10, it also works with Edge.

It seems Firefox does not recognize links on that site. Nothing can be clicked and the pointer does not change when hovering a link.

Firefox always uses excessive GPU memory when I watch video and livestream. about:memory shows that the explict GPU memory allocation is only about 200 MB but in the task manager the GPU memory usage is 1GB, and the latter doesn't decrease even if I close the tab. I suspect that this is a memory leak. I searched for Bugzilla and found a similar issue that has been existing for years: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1386177
