My Firefox 84 is now in an endless loop with updates.

It asked me to download an update from version 84.0.1.

After Firefox closes, installs updates, and restarts, it comes back asking me to update again.

The cycle continues and the updates never complete.

In the Help...About box, the button is still there "Restart to Update Firefox".

I'm using 32-bit Windows 7.

Images attached.

Please advise.

Thanks!

The first attached image is a worst case. Scrolling and/or moving the cursor usually avoids the problem. Sometimes reloading the page is necessary.

This is occurring on two new machines: Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series 5502 with intel 11th gen i5 processors and intel iRISxe graphics. It happens with Ubuntu 20.04 FFox 84.0 and it does not happen with Windows 10 and FFox 84.0.1 (I think 84.0.1) I can re-boot and check if that matters. It does not happen on Ubuntu with other browsers (Opera and Chrome).

Disabling the plugins and even removing them does not help. Safe mode helps.

What else can I provide to document this?

So I've noticed how some video files are able to be played back in Firefox. Some are not able to what so ever, for example I've created a text video using this FFPMEG command: ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc=duration=10:size=1280x720:rate=30 testsrc.mp4

which created the following file: https://astolfo.nl/i/z2ada.mp4 Both the uploaded version and the local .mp4 are unable to be played back in Firefox. However opening them up in edge chromium both files play back perfectly. Besides Edge I've also confirmed it plays back nicely in MPV.

I've tried Hardware acceleration, but both having it on and off did not change the fact that these files wouldn't want to playback in Firefox. Safe mode also did not effect this issue.

I'm having a new problem with Firefox, which I think appeared with Firefox 84 (but I'm not 100% sure). When I type in some text boxes, the cursor gets very slow and unresponsive to move around by the keyboard _if_ the text in the box is long enough so that a scrollbar appears on the right hand side. Sometimes. It doesn't happen at all sites -- it's not duplicating in this textbox that I'm typing in right now -- but it happens all of the time in the message boxes at playdiplomacy.com, and sometimes on GitHub.com when posting issues. Sporadically and unreliably.

As far as I can tell, the cursor is still moving quickly and responsively, but the blink itself isn't happening so I can't see it. If I hold down the left cursor key, it looks like the cursor isn't going anywhere, but if I hit a letter key that letter appears instantly at the location where the cursor has apparently moved to, with no delay.

The problem does not occur when I hold down shift (to highlight) while moving the cursor via the arrow keys, which further suggests that it is somehow related to the cursor blinking.

Restarting in safe mode makes the problem go away instantly. Disabling all add-ons myself does not. Starting with a brand new profile does _not_ make the problem go away either. So there's something safe mode is doing that a new profile doesn't.

Any idea what might be causing this?

(Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 84.0).

Thanks!

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Recently (within the last few days) tabs have began crashing on youtube. Specifically if a video player page is loaded, but the player itself is paused for any length of time.

I have tried and successfully reproduced the issue with safe mode, I've also successfully reproduced the issue with a new profile. I've also successfully reproduced the issue with an entirely new ~/.mozilla directory.

It appears (based on what I can see) something on the page is triggered, then memory spikes and the tab crashes.

What else should I try to resolve this?

Can't donwnload some files when using web proxy (works with other browsers)

Hi all,

I'm struggling with certain downloads and Firefox when using a web proxy. The proxy settings are done in Windows 10 and Firefox is set to use system proxy settings. Users are authenticated automatically at the proxy using kerberos (Windows AD environment)


On the proxy (Squid) I can see the failing files downloaded and I can download these files being transferred to firefox via the proxy port when doing packet capture. Nearly all sites and services work. Only some are affected. When using other browsers (MS IE, MS Edge, Chrome) these downloads work perfectly. When disabling Proxy on Firefox these downloads work, too. Only with this combination Firefox + Proxy I get some failures.

This is one example (that's a PDF datasheet): https://www.ergoswiss.com/de/services/cad-hydraulikhubsysteme/pumpen/pumpe-pf-3-4-anschluesse/?tx_downloads_downloadscategory%5Bdownload%5D=1753&tx_downloads_downloadscategory%5Baction%5D=download&tx_downloads_downloadscategory%5Bcontroller%5D=Download&cHash=9351869892df2bd6c6fbebbd2e74e862

And this is the error message Firefox gives me: C:\Users\[changed for privacy]\AppData\Local\Temp\64gqW0kX.pdf.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator

Again this works in Firefox without proxy and It works in the three other browsers with and without proxy. And only few files are affected. Besides checking logs and doing packet capture I'm running out of ideas. Where do I continue troubleshooting?

When I select Webmail I just receive 3 flashing square dots but the page will not load. I am able the access my Telstra Webmail from Internet Explorer but not Firefox.

Hi!

I'm on a Dell xps 9310, ubuntu 20.04, Firefox version 84.0.

Whenever I'm scrolling or moving the mouse over the screen while on Firefox, I get greyish patches of pixel-like blocks over the screen. As far as I'm concern, it just happens on firefox as of right now and on no other browser (Chrome) or other apps.

I tried something that was suggested over another problem and go to preferences->General->Performances-> Untick the 2 boxes, but it doesn't solve the problem.

Anyone have any idea what might be happening here?

Thank you!

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

Hey guys,

after the latest firefox update I can't open attachments coming from lotus notes (LN), without saving them to computer. The reason is that regardless of the document attached (.doc, .xls, .ppt, etc.) every time I try to open such file the pop-up goes like and the bold line is preventing me to open them directly:

"You have chosen to open: xyz.pptx which is: XLSX file from: LN"

Any idea how to resolve?
