Dear Community,

I recently updated Firefox on my Gentoo system (Window Manager is Ratpoison). I had a shortcut <Ratpoison escape key>-F to open firefox. Before the update I used to press this combination again and another FF window comes up without any problems. Thus, I had 5-6 running FF windows on a normal working day, each with several tabs in it.

Since the update, when I use the same method, no new window appears but after a few seconds the message window comes up saying that the running instance is not responding and that FF could not be started. I know the problem with concurrent access of the profile. But, there was (and should be) the functionality that FF connects to a running instance and opens a new window in it. Unfortunately, I do not know how this works programmatically. I already installed dbus (and yes, I also started the dbus daemon) to ensure that this is not the reason - I usually do not use dbus in my setup.

Is there a way to reliably trigger the running instance to open a new window from my window manager? How does this "connection to a running instance" usually works? Why is it not working? What can I do to use it, are there any requirements needed?

Thank you very much for your effort to help me out.

Kind regards - M4tze

Hello - I've been unable to stream Twitch content on Firefox 94 for the last day or so, however, the issue impacts Youtube and Vimeo live feeds as well.

1. No outages in my area (Twitch works fine on my phone) 2. Tried Firefox in Troubleshoot mode (which disables all extensions) Twitch still broke. 3. Tried Incognito and Troubleshoot mode, Twitch still broke. 4. Cleared cookies and cache, plus Incognito and Troubleshoot mode, Twitch still broke. 5. Tried a different browser, Twitch works fine on Edge 6. I tried all of the above using a 4G Hotspot instead of my fibre connection, same issue

I’ve done some side by side testing of Edge and Firefox today, streaming the same content on each at the same time. Twitch runs fine on Edge. Twitch loads on Firefox and the chat looks fine. The chat arrives simultaneously on Edge and Firefox, it’s just the audio and video won’t play on Firefox. The audio and video don’t work on the ads either.

Watching a Youtube game stream side by side on both Edge and Firefox gives a slightly different result. Again, the chat feed is almost simultaneous, maybe a fraction faster on Firefox. However, while the audio and video run fine on both Edge and Firefox, there is a 15 second lag on Firefox. Both are playing full 1080 video.

So there is a definite issue with how Firefox is buffering audio/video content. The 15 second delay between the audio video stream and the chat I am seeing today with Youtube is what I was experiencing on Twitch over the weekend. I noticed it on streams that include a chat window on the video. I wasn’t overly concerned about the latency issue, as long as I had audio and video. Both of those stopped working for Twitch on Firefox yesterday. It could be that Twitch has slightly richer content than Youtube and that’s why Twitch isn’t working at all on Firefox?

OK, so I’ve installed the Twitch app for Windows and done some side by side testing with that. Interestingly, the app has a couple of seconds latency over Edge but it works fine. I shall use the app for now but would prefer to use Firefox if the buffering/streaming issues can be resolved.

HI I am using win 10 with the latest version of firefox. Yesterday when I booted into windows and started firefox it promptly crashed. I had made no changes either to the system or firefox in several days. Since then I have been unable to get it started except in safe mode and am therefore unable to enter troubleshoot mode. I tried my previous restore points but system restore failed with each one. I have run malewarebytes, adwcleaner and a couple of other programs but they all found nothing. My drivers are all up to date. As a last resort I did a clean uninstall of firefox and manually deleted the firefox folder. I downloaded a new installer from your site only to find that it crashed during install. However, using safemode, I did get it installed but it still crashes in normal mode. Below I've listed the last two crash ID's from the old version as well as the ID from the new one. bp-08805de5-865c-4c55-af1f-c79720211123 old installation bp-d76380c7-9f34-467e-a347-34a180211123 old installation

bp-a09ec77d-868b-4670-a455-ed2d60211124 from new installation

I would be grateful for any help as Firefox is the only browser I tolerate on my OS. If you need any further information I would be happy to oblige.

Thanks

2. It is also giving me a page that I use everyday not upload all the way which has never happened to me before. I attached a photo of what that page looks like.

Hi Just got my new macbook pro 16 2021 on m1pro chip. There is an issue with cursor on my new macbook: it randomly freezes for few seconds 1-5. During video watching, picture also freezes but sound is fine and continue playback at background during these freezes. Freezes happen not only during video watching, but also with normal web browsing. There is only few tabs open and I'm using default Firefox 94.0.1 as default browser with Ublock and SponsorBlock extensions on Monterey 12.0.1 system. After some observations, I can say, that freezes also happens, even if Firefox is open in background and Safari is in use. With Safari no such problem.

So if anyone know how to solve this problem, please help.

When visiting a website and launching a video it plays fine. When I decide that I have watched enough and close the video window it moves to the side and continues to play. I have closed the video because I don't want to see or hear it any longer. This very annoying and I can't figure out how to prevent this from happening. Does anyone know how to disable this annoying behaviour? Firefox 94.0.1 64 bit Windows 10 Pro

I looked at various tips on how to solve a RAM problem. But I don't understand why my firefox takes about 800MB of RAM after startup, but sometimes after the time of use it suddenly takes 16GB of RAM. Does Mozilla not have a tool to track which part of Firefox uses so much RAM?

I use Firefox exclusively (94.0.1) Suddenly, I cannot log into my credit card account. I've never had this problem. I can log into anything else: Banking account, webpage accounts, ets no problem. But when I try logging in to penfed.org with Firefox I get this error: (An unexpected error happened. We are unable to complete the login process. Please try again.) I can log into the account using Edge.

I emailed penfed. They said try these:

-Reset device network settings. -Power cycle/restart your computer or device. -Clear your cache/history -Ensure that your computer has the most up to date operating system available, and/or your mobile device has the most current mobile app version downloaded. -Open PenFed online in an alternate web browser (i.e. if you are using Internet Explorer, try using Google Chrome, Firefox etc...)

I had previously cleared cache/history and restarted the computer. I have NOT reset the device network settings because I am not familiar with that and don't want to mess something up. Help please

I keep a few windows open normally - each window has a number of tabs.

Every time I close firefox, whether it's to restart my mac or just to quit and re-open the application, every window opens up but I cannot see it. When I click the firefox icon in my dock, it shows the list of windows, but when I select one, nothing comes up on my screen.

The workaround I have found is to select the window and then go to the menubar and select VIEW > Enter Full Screen. This then maximizes the previously invisible window. I can then minimize the window and adjust the size as I prefer.

Why is this happening? This has been going on for about a year, through various Mac OS updates as well as Firefox updates.

Good day, first of all I'd like to appologize because I cant seem to find any dev/support email on the main website mozilla.org so I'd like to request that if possible. This is a long read, partially why I didnt want to discuss this here but alas I have no other choice since contanting anyone from this company was unsuccessful on my part. However, since, as I assume, the devs are hiding for reasons that should be a surprise to nobody, I'd like to point out a few problems that I have encountered with using this browser, or pretty much ANY browser in this day and age.

As you all know, browsers take up a big chunk of memory when loading multiple websites. In fact, I assume that most of you have at least 8G of RAM so you might not notice the things I will be talking about here.

The thing I'd like to talk to someone about, and I really mean someone who might be competent in solving this issue, becouse this isnt only a technical issue, but a user-ignorance-enabled-compliance issue. Recently, I have decided to secure my computer a bit more due to various cyber-threat alerts and whatnot and came across `firejail` which is a neat program to sandbox applications. I then made sure to start firefox through it. Then I went one step futher and decided that the constant swapping from having 4 tabs open and having my computer brought to a screetching halt, was enough of an issue that I finally decided to do something about it. To my surprise, firefox simply, would not start, unless, I gave it at least 2700MB of memory AND 300 (yes 300) subprocesses/forks for it to function. This problem was repated on chromium too, but I wont talk about it since this is the mozilla website. Mind you, I have an old computer with a max of 3,2G of RAM and a humble Core2Duo CPU. 99% of programs do not have any issues with my low specs, except of course, browsers in general. Now before anyone suggest I get a new computer, let me suggest something to you:

How about you learn how to fucking do your job? It isn't enough, that the wave of javascript confused web-monkeys fancy themselves as programmers of the modern age, when they need to pull megabytes upon megabytes of javascript code from 10 different sources for their hello-world grade "enterpreneur" landing pages with 10 different popups to even start considering to work on something (jQuery, React, Vue, whatever-else the f*ck you m*rons use) But we also have to deal with programs, that, for some strange reason, thing they require half, if not all the concievable resources of the machine they run on. No wonder that in todays world, people refer to these programs as malware, bloatware or spyware, depending on what the program is sending about you to servers you have no idea about, but you could get an idea if you just intercept the packets firefox is sending for example.

So, after that little went I will let you meditate on the following fact: When I run firefox with the limit of 3GB and 300 max subprocesses and open facebook, it crashes after a few minutes. LinkedIn Survives a little longer. Now that is a fact, you can test it yourself. Here is the code I use to start firefox:

firejail --rlimit-nproc=300 --nice=5 --cpu=0 --rlimit-as=3000m firefox %u

The `nice` part means to treat firefox with very low priority. This is to prevent my computer from hanging or swapping, by opening a few tabs and facebook or linkedin, and that is not a joke. I am aware that placing it so low on the prio list can cause issues but i did that after I had those issues. So no. I wont change it.

And I dont even comment on the flickering and graphical glitches that occur, simply because firefox doesnt have more than 3Gigs of address space! ITS RIDICULOUS! I wont attach any pictures as of yet, but I might in the future if you really want to see webpages just falling apart in front of you. And I mean it. ghosting characters (screen glitching/duplicating) pictures just randomly disappearing based on your mouse position (yes seriously) and then reappearing just when your cursor is in the sweet spot. Sometimes I have to scroll to find the sweet spot to see the pictures.

Now, mind you, this applies to pretty much any browser. I am just re-iterating this point because I want people who actually read this to be clear that this is more of an issue with the coding habbits people came to be accustomed to.

First question I'd like answered, besides how we got to the absolute clusterf*ck that is the modern web, how does a website, take up 3G+ of RAM? why would I need 8G of RAM just to browse the internet, when roughly 10+ years ago, I only needed 2G and that was enough to browse any website with many tabs and flash-powered videogames to run smoothly PLUS a simple 3D videogame rendering on top of that, on an intel pentium 4 or older? And 2g was considered a lot back then (maybe not exactly but you get my point). I hope I am not the only one noticing this trend. Because this is a very concerning trend. Needless to say about the countless problems people experience these days due to cyber attacks and data breaches and whatnot.

Second question is this: Is it possible, for you people at mozilla, to reduce your applications memory footprint? say, down to a few hundred. If not, I want to know why. And really explain it in detail to me, all the programming aspects of it. Because I honestly do not see any reason why a web-browser, should take up more than 1g, and that is being generous.

Third question: Will you, or anyone, ever care about fast and efficient software? You want to support people in poor countries yet you ship THIS? You want to support developing countries, when your software effectively forces them to invest in expensive machines to even browse the web? Don't kid yourselves, you arent helping anyone. If you were selling 4g i5 cpu laptops to your browser alone, I wouldnt be surprised. Because that is the absolute minimum one has to get to "check their emails" RIDICULOUS!

Fourth question: Did you ever think about how people were developing whole video-games with only a few kilobytes of ram and the games, well, worked? Your browser cant live in a low-budget environment. It wont even start. Or are we planing to send children in africa alien-ware laptops so that they can register an email address? "ooh boy it better have the newest GPU GeForce RTX 3080 TURBO X, 128Gs of RAM and i78000 with 10Thz too so that I can play me some FLASH(Unity WebGL) GAMES"

I am done with my complaint, I will be copy-pasting this to chrome developers too. I know you wont do anything about this, because if it really mattered, you would have done something about it already. And you didnt. And you wont.

Have a wonderful day.

Two days ago firefox stopped working with most of my offices local intranet sites. It either doesnt load at all or loads so slowly its not practical to use. I have refreshed multiple times and that works for about an hour before it goes back to the initial slow behavior. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no change. I have uninstalled all plugins and addons with the same result. I really do not wish to stop using firefox after so long but I am at the end of my knowledge on how to rectify this . Any suggestions are helpful.
