When I try to play a video on Firefox desktop, it takes it a long time to load. Once it has loaded, whenever I pause it for more than a few seconds, or if I try to skip around the video (either by clicking around in the loaded section of the progress bar or using +/- seconds buttons), the video begins buffering again before the video resumes. This makes it extremely difficult and frustrating to watch anything that requires me to pause, rewind, or fast forward. I've noticed this issue affect multiple video viewing sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Netflix. My roommate also uses Firefox, but doesn't have this issue, so I know it's not a problem with my internet. I thought it might be a problem with my computer, but I tried to replicate the issue in Chrome and everything worked fine there. The issue has persisted almost a week. I have:

  • Rebooted my computer several times
  • Deleted my history/cache
  • Disabled my extensions
  • Turned off Java scripts in firefox (this disabled my ability to load sites like YouTube completely, so I turned it back on)
  • Updated my computer
  • Updated my graphics drivers
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox (and rebooted my computer)
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox AND deleted all the data it stored on my computer (and rebooted my computer)

I am currently using version 123.0.1 of Firefox. My OS is Windows 10 22H2.

YouTube all of a sudden started to slow down and only be able to load videos fast enough in 360p resolution, I tried watching YouTube on Microsoft edge and YouTube handled 1080p easily there, I have cleared the cash and made sure my Firefox and Windows are up to date and still the issue persists.

this only seams to occur on YouTube as amazon prime and speed test works without issues

Suddenly almost everytime I load a YouTube video I have to watch 2 - 4 min of ads, sometimes two in a row before the video starts. I no longer have the skip ad button. If I load the same link in Chrome or Edge I don't have this problem. My search engine is Duck Duck Go, but if I go to Google first and then to the video I still have the problem. I also have the Maleware Bytes ad blocker installed. Any suggestions?

Firefox has started hiding all tabs in a window except the active tab. This has happened in two different windows. I have no idea how to hide tabs and don't want to. How can I unhide the tabs. When I try to do it one by one, the first tab rehides when the 2nd one appears. Can I unhide multiple tabs at once? Do I have to unhide them one by one, and if so how? How do I stop Firefox from hiding tabs?

I cannot remove "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" and seems to be stopping the home settings saving. They simply revert back to the default (see image) when I restart Firefox. Not sure what is meant by "your organisation" as I am a personal user, not organisation. I'm the single user of the browser (e.g. just one user on my PC, which is me) and also Admisitrator. Can someone help me remove this. Thanks John

This current version of Firefox (126.0) is preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing/displaying in ANY Yahoo! article. After I finished reading a Yahoo! article, the Yahoo! Comments is viewed but upon clicking on Comments, it just disappeared. It happens in any Yahoo! article with Comments. I used Safari to see if I experience similar issue but Safari is able to show/display Yahoo! Comments upon clicking on them. I have no other browser plug-in or app in Firefox preventing Yahoo! Comments from showing, it seems to be a Firefox JavaScript issue.

There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi there, Zoom meetings used to open via the Firefox browser (e.g., you get a zoom invite via email, click on the link, it opens a page in firefox that says "Launch Meeting." But now it doesn't work. Nothing happens. Why? At one point Firefox put up a message that asked me to choose something and I did, and after that, it never worked again.

I can get into my zoom meetings using their meeting number and password through the zoom app, but it's more convenient to just click on their link in emails and open it within the browser.

Help please. Thanks in advance. I am using MacOS HighSierra 10.13.6, i cannot go any higher on this older mac. Firefox version is 115.7.0 esr

By the way, this version of Firefox allows me to use the internet without messages from websites telling me my browser needs upgrading. For ex., google chrome browser will not update anymore on HighSierra and my banking website and others do not perform properly with Chrome. But they are ok with Firefox. So thanks for this.

Kathy



/edit: moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to Firefox section as you have macOS.

For the last few weeks ive been having difficulties with youtube, at first it was only the comment section that would load forever without stopping, but lately when ive decided to sit down andtry and solve this, i noticed that i cant access my account nor any notifications either. And even if i type in my name and go into my account manually, there are no links nor any menues available, everything is black except the videos.

I cant even sort the videos to the "latest upload" without the page start loading forever without stopping. I can access everything with other browsers though, OperaGX, but thats not my main browser, so i dont want to switch over to Opera whenever i want to use youtube.

Does anyone else have the same problem? And what do i need to do to fix this? (I cant even find a way to contact the support to get help nowadays for some reason..)

Hello,

I recently purchased a VPN for my laptop. I bought a designated IP address set to Toronto, Canada. However, Firefox shows my location in Japan.

In my communications with VPN server they believe since whatsmyipaddress shows me where my VPN says it should, but FF shows me in Japan, the problem may be a leak at your end. When I created this account today and set my country to Canada (as suggested by PIA), closed everything and rebooted my computer I had hoped to see Canada (en) when I began a search. However, it still shows Japan.

I value my privacy on all devices and turning off location is the first thing I do. I'm now wondering if FF is getting this location from Windows.

Any assistance is most appreciated. Thank you,
