So obviously "We’ve reduced CPU usage on macOS in Firefox and WindowServer during event processing" is demonstrably false.

I went to Headspace, streamed an audio in Safari, noted the %CPU in Activity barely budged more than 20%. Then streamed the same audio in Firefox 93, noted the %CPU rocketed up to 150% and the laptop got hot and the fan kicked into high gear. Then I updated Firefox, restarted computer fresh, streamed the same audio and.....surprise, surprise no fix, no change, %CPU rockets up like before.

I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

  • Windows 11 21H2 2200.348
  • Network driver is the latest Win11 edition
  • Firefox 95

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

I'm using Firefox to save my passwords, but I'm having troubles in having a good experience with it now that lockwise is gone. And lockwise was not perfect either but still better.

If I create a new account on an app Firefox doesn't provide a way to autogenerate a password and then save the login data.

Please improve this feature because it is vital, especially if you deprecate the alternative.

Cheers

Hello! I am in a work environment and I am trying to determine if there is something in our security systems that is preventing Firefox from running properly. Once Firefox is installed, it works the rest of the day with no issue but almost daily the morning after, it will start to open then instantly crash. When I check the crash logs, it shows in most of them: Modules - Filename: umppc14210.dll Version: 6.28.14210.0 Debug Identifier: B9143DE260194C88AB48EFD6782C9EAF1 Debug File Name: umppc.pdb Signed By: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

When using the dark theme from Firefox, Google searching seems to break completely as well as some pages will not load which may be related to this.

I have already tried uninstalling Firefox, deleting all of the folders, then reinstalling with a freshly downloaded installer (Even tried the beta one) with same results. It seems potentially MAYBE related to how long ago I closed Firefox before I shut down (Like Firefox is trying to save something to a secure location and times out, then it will work but if it hasn't timed out, then it crashes... or this is my guess)

The Signature seems to change randomly for the crash between crashes.

I really am tired of constantly reinstalling Firefox but I do not want to use Chrome or Edge unless websites require it.

I was a happy user of Lockwise & Sync until I got a support mail today saying that Lockwise was being replaced by the in-built passed manager in Firefox. (running Firefox beta for android here)

This is fine, but it now takes me 4 clicks to get to my passwords, hidden a few levels deep in the settings screen, which is a pain.

Would it be possible to have about:logins work on Android, and allow me to create a url shortcut to that on my home page so that I can get to passwords as easy as I could before? (Honestly, Lockwise seemed just fine to me, it's a shame it's going away)

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

Hi there,

I've just downloaded the dev version of Firefox, and for some reason some of the text defaults to italics; I can't see where to change this. On all other browsers, this text is not italic.

Does anyone have an explanation / solution?

The non-italic text in the picture attached is the 'good text' which accurately reflects itself accross browsers and devices. The italic text is the 'bad text' that I want to change for consistency.

Thanks!

Hello, I have issues with Firefox developer version for couple months now, when I play videos, like youtube, or other sites they constantly lag. They play for like 1min and lag, continue for another 2min then lag etc etc. (even short videos on twitter lag). It was not like that before and I don't have this problem in other browsers.
