Playing youtube video on Firefox has become a hazard. The power consumption sharply rises whenever a video is plying AND (specifically) when the this youtube tab is the one open (current). As soon as I move to another tab and let the video continue playing this problem disappears and resource consumption looks normal. Then if I go back to the youtube tab then it spikes again sharply.

It has been like this for a week or couple of days now.

IsItBullshit: Does Google purposely slow down Google and YouTube on Firefox and other non-chromium browsers to bring people to chrome?

Unclear. It's true that a couple years ago, A Mozilla employee found that YouTube loaded 5x slower on Firefox than Chrome. This was due to Google updating YouTube which relied on an interface which was implemented in Chrome (but not in other browsers). What's unclear is if they were just optimizing for Chrome or deliberately slowing down everything else. Speaking as a software engineer, these kinds of things are very easy to overlook or do unintentionally - there are so many different browsers and bowser versions out there, optimizing for all of them is tough and so it's possible that Google optimized for Chrome and tested to make sure stuff still worked on Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc, but didn't do rigorous performance testing on those browsers. However Google is a big company with many arms and lots of resources so it's hard to say for certain.

hi there!

is there a way to open a firefox tab in a new private window? it's something i'm wishing for all the time!

(google posts from many years ago state a way to select this option from the menu, but if it worked it no longer is in the menu.)

my reason for needing this so often is that i have many add-ons that block trackers, ads, etc, which are disabled for my private mode. so if a tab won't load, it would be the easiest way by far to get it to do so!

thanks for any help!

Hello everyone,

I'm an avid user of Firefox latest on Manjaro, up to date.

Since yesterday, when I updated from Firefox 87.0-1 to 87.0-2, I have a strange bug using DuckduckGo.

What happens ?

  • When on DuckduckGo result page, clicking a link won't open when using the "Open in another tab" setting
  • I will open the link if that setting is not used
  • I can open it in a new tab with the right-click menu, or by ctrl-clicking it.
  • When hovering above a link, the bottom-left tooltip does show up and the cursor does become a hand, suggesting the link should work. Alas, it doesn't.

What did I try ?

  • I did restart in "safe mode", with all addons disabled.
  • I did reset the cache.
  • I tried testing the same behavior on Google, and it did work as expected.
  • I tried DDG in another browser (Gnome Web/Epiphany), and it worked as expected.

I have yet to notice the same issue with any other website. Any Idea where I should report this minor, but annoying but ?

Thanks & Cheers, -- JAB

So for the second time this month my bookmarks in my toolbar have disappeared. I was signed into my Firefox account both times they went missing. I tired to restore from backup...... nothing. I made sure that the tool bar was enabled.... nothing. I'm so frustrated, as I am in full-time school with three days left in my term and all my textbooks and course sites are GONE!! I don't understand why this keeps happening.

Help!

Hi !

Firefox asked me again to create a new profile. Third or forth time within a month or two. Nothing serious, I have to admit, takes a few minutes to recover bookmarks, reset duckduckgo as default search engine, etc., but why is it happening? Version 87.0, Windows 10, 64 bit.

And while I'm here... I use to download a lot of webpages, for information purposes, it's easier than to bookmark them all. Doesn't work correctly for a while now, they are not saved as webpages, but as something resembling html-format (or however to describe it)... Still working with Edge and Opera, so it must be a Firefox issue. And after each update Firefox was reset to French language automatically one or two days later, this also does not happen any more. I'm neither English nor French native speaker, so again, not a real problem, but why is it happening? or rather not happening any more?

Just curious... Thanks in advance for any hint Best regards Michael

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about what is going on with this issue. I am using Firefox 78.9.0esr (64-bit), with the latest Acrobat reader. I've had no problems with any sites or links other than those at the Environmental Protection Agency. For many weeks, actually months now, I have been unable to access any (I've tried more than 40 different ones) Pesticide Labels. Every time, no matter the route - typed address, Ag. Ext. program link, directly from the EPA's pesticide label search page, I receive this error message: "An error occurred during a connection to www3.epa.gov. The OCSP server suggests trying again later. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_TRY_SERVER_LATER The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." For instance Lorsban 75WG, as I attempt on the page https://iaspub.epa.gov/apex/pesticides/f?p=113:8:::NO::P8_PUID,P8_RINUM:38268,62719-301 to open the label pdf by clicking on "November 19, 2013 (PDF)," which should then open the label at https://www3.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/ppls/062719-00301-20131119.pdf . Instead, I receive the above error message. I have, of course, contacted the EPA about this, several times. Thanks.
