Hello,

i'm having a problem navigating inside some of the websites on Firefox for Mac. Either the page is grey, and I can't navigate the page or I can't scroll down the page. It's not doing it on evry websites but it's become really annoying.

I tried to go into Preferences and in the privacy to see if there was somthing there, but the privacy setting is set to standard and I don't see anything there that can prevent what's happening.

Thank you for your help in this matter. Kssaw

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

Hello,

I'm running Firefox ESR 78.9.0 and using the mozilla configfile and GPO. We're using Webmarshal and needed to import for all of our user the SSL certificate.

I succeeded and firefox now sees this certificate under the certificates, but firefox does not read it. For example, we have a block on facebook.com, but we can still access it, even though the certificate is in it.

I found out that if I manually enter the socks host with ipaddress, my sites will be blocked, but I can't manage to put this in the config file.

What I added: lockPref("network.proxy.socks", "servername.domain.nl"); lockPref("network.proxy.socks_port", 1234);

But when I open firefox, it cannot read the confile file with these 2 prefs. I would like some support so that these sites are also blocked on firefox. They are now only blocked on Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.

Thanks!

Since a few months, I have noticed a nasty issue with pasting on some websites.

For example, when I try to paste text in the body with CTRL/CMD+V on the web interface of my email provider (mailbox.org), the cursor is moved to the end of the message but no text is copied. Right-click > paste does work, and no issue for the recipient and subject fields. The issue is only when writing emails in HTML; plain text works fine. Another example, when editing a protocol on protocols.io, hitting CTRL/CMD+V leads to a blank page, which needs to be refreshed (but the text has not been pasted). There is no option to do it via right-click > paste there. Same issue when submitting a manuscript on PCI Paleontology.

All these examples are specific to Firefox (I have the latest version installed); it is reproducible both on macOS 10.15 and Win10. It doesn't seem to be due to add-ons (I tried to deactivate them one by one and nothing changed). There is no problem with Chrome-based browsers (e.g. Iridium) or Safari.

Is it maybe some configuration or something? Any idea?

Hi When I am playing a youtube video in fullscreen in firefox, I sometimes see other programs or videos overlayed on top of the fullscreened video. I have attached an example screenshot.

When I google for youtube fullscreen problems, pretty much the only advice I have found is to disable or enable hardware acceleration. Neither work for me.

I am using Ubuntu 16.04, if that helps.

Long story short, I have gaps in my history in Firefox. I'm on the latest stable desktop version, but this happens both on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04) and Windows 10.

I can't really pin down what causes this, it seems totally random. Every now and then, I'll be browsing, close the browser, realize I need to do something on a page I was recently on, I relaunch, press "ctr+h", go to the 'Today' drop down tab, and the most recent entry is multiple hours old, in some cases it's not even from the same day. The pages I was just on are nowhere to be found.

I would guess it's just late to update the history, but then there are times where I'll go through my history from a few days ago looking for a specific page I know I visited, and I'm able to find some but not all. Again, it just seems like there are random gaps in my history.

On a number of sites (YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, etc), after pausing and resuming a video or jumping to a new timestamp, the video will play but be muted. The video player does not show it is muted, but no sound is playing. Jumping to another timestamp or using a keyboard shortcut to jump a couple of seconds will resume audio playback. This started happening within the last few days. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated
