I am a startup founder. I'm making a webgl rendering engine. I'm doing a stress test with 4 large paragraphs amounting to tens of millions of triangles on a macbook air. Firefox is on the latest version.

When I run the app in chrome/safari/opera, the performance is normal. ~45fps. But in Firefox, it's very slow. My FPS counter (in a requestAnimationFrame loop) says ~45fps on all browsers. But in Firefox, even though the counter says that, the real frame rate is ~3-5fps.

When I try to profile, the problem magically goes away and we're back to ~45fps. I played around with profiler settings, and the key determinant is whether or not I'm taking screenshots. No screenshots = slow. Screenshots = fast.

In the flame graph, in slow mode (no screenshots), it seems like I get stuck in the canvasRenderer and the Renderer mostly waits for it. But in fast mode (with screenshots), the canvasRenderer keeps up and the Renderer spents most it's time in: iokit_user_client_trap

I'm not sure what to do. This is only a problem on Firefox. There's some sort of gpu/threads/something that switches when I profile with screenshots that makes it way faster. This performance hit basically ruins my app for Firefox only. Any idea what I should do?

Cookies being written and automatically deleted

Hello,

I work for Microsoft, and one of our sites offers users a way to opt out of personalized advertising on some Microsoft domains by setting a cookie. The site: https://account.microsoft.com/privacy/ad-settings/signedout

When the user clicks the toggle to Off, we cycle through four domains via an iframe and write a TOptOut cookie on each one. If everything is working properly, the user should then be able to go to www.bing.com and see a TOptOut cookie on Bing that will prevent personalized advertising on that domain.

The problem is, this stopped working in Firefox. We have verified that it still works* in 115.7.0, but in 122.0.1 and 123.0, the cookie is written and then deleted on refresh. If the user doesn't already have Bing open in another tab, they'll never see the cookie at all. I have verified this behavior in Bing several times, on my work machine (Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 10) and my personal machine (Firefox 122.0 snap on Xubuntu 23.10).

  • It still works on our corporate VPN in 115.7.0, but not on my coworker's non-VPN machine. Same version. I'm really not sure what's up with that one.

This is a large concern for us. Because the cookies can still be written, it doesn't trip our test for third-party cookies being disabled. Because the cookie for microsoft.com is written, the toggle will show up as Off even after a refresh. This is misleading to our users.

I have gone over the Firefox docs on Enhanced Tracking Protection and Total Cookie Protection, but neither seem to handle this case. Firefox does not block any trackers on account.microsoft.com or on www.bing.com. It's fine if the cookies are in separate jars, we just want them to be written to the proper domains and not deleted. Can anyone tell me what changed in Firefox recently? Is this expected behavior, or a bug? If it's expected behavior, what can we do to allow users to opt out of personalized advertising?

I've gone through and done everything the help articles suggest, nothing happens - then a few days later everything's fine. It's gone on like this for a few months. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings Firefox enthusiasts and Intel Evo laptop users,

As technology continues to evolve, so too does the collaboration between software and hardware to provide users with a seamless and optimized experience. Today, I'd like to delve into the intriguing partnership between Firefox and Intel Evo technology, specifically focusing on how this collaboration ensures smooth integration, compatibility, and enhances both performance and security features.

Here are some key points to consider as we explore this topic:

Performance Optimization: How does Firefox leverage Intel Evo technology to optimize browsing performance on laptops? Are there specific features or optimizations that take advantage of Intel Evo's hardware capabilities to deliver faster page load times, smoother scrolling, and improved responsiveness?


Battery Efficiency: Intel Evo laptops are known for their energy efficiency and extended battery life. How does Firefox collaborate with Intel Evo technology to ensure that browsing sessions are energy-efficient, minimizing battery drain and maximizing uptime?

Security Features: Security is a top priority for both Firefox and Intel Evo laptops. How do they work together to ensure that users are protected against threats such as malware, phishing, and data breaches? Are there any specific security features or enhancements that result from this collaboration?

Compatibility Assurance: With the diverse range of hardware configurations available in Intel Evo laptops, ensuring compatibility with Firefox is crucial. How does Firefox collaborate with Intel to perform rigorous testing and validation to guarantee that the browser runs smoothly on Intel Evo devices?

I encourage fellow members of the community to share their insights, experiences, and opinions on how Firefox and Intel Evo technology come together to deliver a superior browsing experience. Let's delve into this collaboration and uncover the synergies that benefit users in terms of both performance and security.

Looking forward to an engaging discussion!

Since the last Firefox update I have been unable to login to my bank's website. Attached is a screenshot of the message that appears. As a test I tried logging in with Google Chrome and was successful so it is likely something with the last update of Firefox. Note that I am using Windows 7 and do not want to change to a newer version.

Choppy 4K YouTube playback

I have a very good PC (5800X3D, 7900XT, 32GB DDR4 3600), but Firefox (either the normal, canary and nightly version) can't play smoothly any 4K video (like the Borderlands trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU_NKNZljoQ ). 1440 and lower resolutions are fine, as are 4K videos on Chrome and Edge. FWIW, my CPU during 4K playback is barely used (1-2%), and my GPU's video codec (VCE) is used by around a third. Disabling HW accel makes things better, as it still stutters but it's (barely) passable. I already tried creating a new profile, but still it's the same.

As of a few days ago my login to my bank's website is not working. I can login, but the main page which should display accounts, etc. only displays the top half of the site, but not the lower half that should display the account information. I tried chrome, and that works fine. But I was wondering why FireFox is not displaying the website. I've been in contact with my bank and their I.T. department. And they claim there have been no changes or glitches, and their website should work with all majore browsers, including F.F. I do have a password manager, but I disabled that for the bank website. I've cleared cache numerous times. Rebooted, etc. I know there was a Microsoft Windows update a few days ago. In fact they sent 2 updates almost back to back. Which is unusual. I understand there have been cyber attacks recently. Don't know if that's related. Any ideas on how to get F.F. working on my bank's website? Thanks

I am a single user of Firefox 123.0 (64 bit) on a Windows 11 desktop, Win 11 laptop, and Android phone. If I use Profile Manager to delete both of the the Profiles from my desktop ("default" and "default-release"), will that have any effect on my laptop or phone? Specifically, will I lose my passwords and bookmarks on all devices, or just the desktop?

Also, can I delete one of my two profiles? If so, which one? When I navigate to Users\Bill\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see four folders:

 lamrm8zp.default-release,  2/26/2024

Hi jscher2000, I want to thank you for your advice concerning a problem I had downloading Firefox to my Windows 10 laptop. I tried to follow your advice but was not successful. In the end, I googled "what if Firefox doesn't install". It took me to a website, https://www.makeuseof.com/fix-firefox-not-installing-windows , which took me to an article entitled "8 Fixes to Try if Firefox Won't Install on Windows". I tried #1 and #2 without success. #3, Temporarily Disable Your Antivirus Software, worked. Firefox is up and running. Feel free to share this with anyone who has a similar problem. No guarantee that it will work, but its worth a try. Again, thank you. drzee1946
