Have used Firefox for decades and suddenly it is having problems. If I surf around and have a few tabs open, some of them might crash. Firefox tries to restore them and sometimes it works and sometimes they just crash again immediately. I can go to Amazon and the page won't load completely so I can't do anything. If I try and close Firefox it won't close, it is frozen. And often, pages just load very slowly even though my internet connection is strong. This just started about a month or so ago. I have refreshed Firefox, updated it, and checked the systems on my computer. All my internal diagnostics returned "no issues." So it has to be the program.

I've been dealing with this issue for a long time now, without finding any solution

On macOS, whenever I am using Bluetooth headphones (Sony XM4, Airpods Pro), videos will hang for a few seconds just as the video is starting. This happens again if I pause/unpause or if I seek forward/backward on a video. The video "spinning animation" will appear and it will take 2-3 seconds for the video to start. This happens immediately, even if I click pause/start fast (ie: this is not after some delay necessarily). Also, if I mute audio on the video, the issue does not manifest itself.

During the waiting, Firefox itself seem to be hanging: for instance if I click on an extension icon in the toolbar, nothing will happen until the video finally start playing and then the extension menu will open up

When using Google Meet or Zoom for instance, I sometimes have to wait up to 10 seconds or so before Bluetooth Audio/Microphone starts after I've joined a meeting.

The issue is not specific to these platforms: I experience the same issue on other platforms such as Facebook, dailymotion, vimeo, zoom. On Facebook, since videos start muted, I can see the videos start playing right away, and then if I unmute sound the video stops, and start again with sound after 3 seconds or so

The issue does NOT manifest itself when playing an audio-only stream: ex Soundcloud or local radio stations audio stream

Things I've tried and didn't help - Troubleshoot mode - Different Firefox profile - Different Firefox install - Restarting my system

This feels like Firefox/macOS is waiting for Bluetooth to activate, or something like that. I have a feeling this only happens for certain types of video/audio codecs but I am not sure how to validate that (ex: no issues on soundcloud, petron audio-only posts).

The problem is entirely non-existent when I'm using sound output that is not Bluetooth.

This does not happen with other browsers otherwise I wouldn't be posting here :)

The lag is very problematic to me, because I do most of my work using the browser. When the keyboard starts lagging I can only enter text using copy/paste with mouse (which works fine). The only way to solve it is to restart Firefox (which can result in lost work).

The lag, when it starts, is 10 seconds or more for each keystroke. It occurs about once every few days.

Setting accessibility.force_disabled to 1 did NOT help.

This morning I saw that images were not downloading within my GMAIL messages. Believing that something was wrong with my connection, I decided to give both my computers a restart. This concerns my Windows 10 64-Bit, on which I had both Edge and Firefox opened, both with multi-tabs. In Firefox I had my Google account open with other tabs. After shutting down both computers I left my apartment. The Windows 10 restarted on its own; but both browsers lost their tabs even though I set each to reopen the previous session. With Edge and function keys I was able to restore my previous session; but not with Firefox. about:sessionrestore was not available. The Profile folder did not show a backup for these lost tabs. I hate hunting for them in History because I am working on multiple projects and don't have time for this wasteful activity, which is why I set Startup to Open Previous Windows And Tabs. What option did I miss?

Now, we have more wasted time. I reopened as many tabs as I remembered opened during the session I could not restore. Now, the only tabs that reopened since are the ones I opened that have posts about restoring sessions. The tabs I reopened are lost even though I checked off Open Previous Windows And Tabs. This browser is performing worse as of today for some reason I am not aware. What changed? From what I see here, there was no MS Windows update that might have occurred when I shut down and lost the tabs. Could I have disrupted the tabs by using the right hand, top corner "X" to shut out of Firefox?

This is getting more and more whacked up! It seems that every time I reopen a tab within the Library, it opens it in the same tab, overlaying the previous tab I opened.

I am a long-time Firefox for Mac user and recently, browser APP all of a sudden is ignoring selected PRINT preferences. Two examples are: Printing one-sided when two-sided is selected, and printing in color when the default and selected preference is for a "Black and White Fast Draft". I use a MacMini M1 running Sonoma v14.5 and Firefox v 127.0 (64 bit). My printer is an HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 with up-to-date firmware. I have resorted to use of Chrome until I resolve this situation, though I prefer to use Firefox. In addition, while it may be a separate issue, I also found that the use of Firefox when using GMAIL developed a new issue at approximately the same time. Now, when clicking on the selection box for an individual email, Firefox often does not allow the box to be checked, but again with Chrome, it works just fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

I noticed something strange on my account under my password manager and want to make sure it is not a security issue.

Under my Password Manager, I noticed that a majority of my saved passwords (unless used recently) all have the last "used" date as April 5, 2024. These are on accounts that I do not access frequently and they all have the same "used" date.

Why would this be the case?

Thank you so much, Brianna

In Firefox 115.8.0esr on linux RHEL7, I am loading a local html page (using file:///...) that I created. Inside the html page, I have a tag "<object id="hiddenDataObj" data="abc.txt">" where abc.txt is a text file in the same directory as the html file. Using my default profile, the data is loaded and some downstream javascript runs as expected. When I use an alternate profile and try to load the exact same page, I get a javacscript error "Uncaught TypeError: hiddenDataObj.contentDocument is null." It is not null when I run my default profile.

I'm trying to figure out what setting in my profile is enabling/disabling the loading of the data so that I can change it. I've gone to about:preferences and scrolled through and it seems like all settings I see are the same between the two profiles.

Thanks for any help.

The first post on the Facebook page will always display the timestamp, none of the remaining posts display the timestamp - only a dot or period. The space for the timestamp is there and hovering the mouse over it will show the date and time (so the information is on the page, just not displaying).

I've tried all the CSS fixes, installed the stylus extension, created a userContent.css - essentially everything that seemed to help people a year ago. None of it fixed the problem. I've disabled ALL add-ons - made no difference.

I'm on Windows 7 pro x64, Firefox 115.12.0esr (64-bit). Chrome doesn't have this problem.

As far as I'm aware it started within the last day or two.
