A month to a few weeks ago Firefox started being laggy when switching tabs; also Facebook and Facebook Messenger; on Board Game Arena and also on Discord desktop app (using Electron/chromium) typing was getting laggy. I thought it might be hardware so I tested the memory with memtest86 but that passed. I also tried safe mode on Firefox but that made no difference.

So I reimaged my HD to a known good copy from December 2019 and then also recently to 2018 and updated to latest version of Windows 10. All seemed well but recently again Firefox has gotten laggy. Even typing in here it occassionally hangs.

I've attached a Firefox Profiler link https://share.firefox.dev/2Zlua5o if that helps with me doing moves on https://boardgamearena.com/ website with each move taking several seconds to do.

I have also the profile with more private information if that helps.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot?

Hello,

I am creating an html page, which is stored into my computer, and on opening it with Firefox, a javascript function that should run when the page opens, it doesn't. It does in chrome, but in Firefox it doesn't (77.0.1 (64bit)).

The definition of the function is not inline. Other than that, it is a regular function.

Any clues?

I do not have any add ons installed in firefox.

Thank you in advance,

Diego

For weeks now I have had repeated problems in signing in to Gmail and Firefox Browser. I am continually being asked to identify myself and to change passwords etc. At the root of the problem appears to be thzt Google or Firefox has decided that I live in USA. I have never even visited USA. I have lived in FRANCE some 25 years. But, someone has decided otherwise and I suspect it is someone with a VPN who keeps changing his address. There is possibly a fault with the latest version of Google which over-writes the French telephone dial code (0033) with a code from USA. My IP address is also changed to a US number. The last time I did a trace I arrived at gchao.com in Florence , Colorado. (23.249.172.213).

I have tried three times to bring this problem to Google but I never receive an answer.

I have three levels of anti-malware in use. The problem appears to principally relate to an HP portable running Windows 10. VIZ ---

Firefox on Windows 10 United States (estimated) IP address: 104.243.212.135 09:16:46 (CDT) Sunday, 28 Jun 2020

I cannot spend the rest of my life changing passwords. Can you plrease help me.

I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

Hello, firstly sorry for my bad english. When there is for example youtube video playing in one tab, and in another tab there is video that just loads, (it can be muted), for example facebook video, or video on news site, the youtube video pauses for like a half of a second and continues to play afterwards. It gets really annoying when I am listening to music and just browsing facebook. I have tried "refreshing" firefox, reinstall it, I tried some addons, nothing helped.

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)

I like to keep my add-ons not immediately visible, so I hide them in the overflow menu. However, they don't seem to display properly, showing a fixed-width box that only sometimes has scroll bars to let me view the whole thing. Most add-ons still scale okay, but my recently installed privacy add-on is unusable from the menu. Is anyone else noticing this issue? Is there any workaround or fix being pursued?
