Firefox automatically upgraded itself to version 41 and now the Trusteer Rapport Endpoint Protection icon is no longer shown to the right of the address bar. It is still there and working in Internet Explorer. The same situation is happening on 2 PCs, both Windows 7 64 bit.

Surely Trusteer Rapport is a widely used feature - one would have thought a new release of Firefox would have been tested to work with it.

I have been trying to get firefox to play 60fps videos on youtube (either flash or HTML5, preferably the latter) but to do this, I need to enable hardware acceleration on firefox (it's the only solution I've found so far) and doing so causes random Blue Screens. I might mention that this only happens in firefox and without hardware acceleration, my youtube videos don't even play at above 20fps. I've been looking for a solution to this issue for days now and haven't found anything, don't understand what's happening.

Long time user (15-20 yrs?), I have been avoiding the "next" upgrade for several years for various reasons (hate change, fave add-ons go away, hate change, not broke-don't fix, hate change...). But I am now running into a few websites that won't permit this browser, so it may be time to move on. With heavy adblocking and tracker-blocking and my benign web browsing habits, I've not been concerned about security (never had a virus in 20 years - knock wood). It's just full functionality and slowness at this point. At this point, I see even my Classic Theme Restorer is no longer available, so I'll just have to bite the bullet on aesthetics and deal with a modern browser. However, a couple of things are unclear:

1. does 20 years of bookmark history (and remembered history) affect memory footprint. I only refer to existing bookmarks occasionally these days and may consider a full purge. Partial purge would probably be too time-consuming. Maybe even a full profile purge might be worthwhile for a true clean slate. Maybe FF has come a long way and old extensions and settings won't be necessary. I also have several about: settings that I may (or may not?) miss.

2. Are automatic updates unavoidable in newer versions? I read about "manual" but it sounded temporary.

3. The permissions on many potential add-ons I've looked at are quite unnerving... e.g many of them require full access to ALL my data (usernames and passwords!!!) and I know the function has no need for such. Who has time to investigate these fully for safety? Is there any anti-malware vetting required for add-ons to be available?

4. I know newer is generally faster, but FF has a history of growing and slowing down after upgrades. My hardware isn't getting any newer (although its more than ample for my current needs), but software tends to be developed on latest and greatest hardware. How does latest FF compare to circa V41 in memory usage?


In any case, I thought I would give the latest vesion a whirl on my old Vista laptop (which is currently at V43) and check it out before plunging in on my W7 work PC or home PC. Any answers or insight into such a big jump are much appreciated.

Hello.

I'm having a problem with firefox and it is getting really annoying.

When i search for something on the top right search box, Firefox opens a website with my search already put into the site (For example ebay or amazon but it is irrelevant because i search something like "How to...") But i do not want to do this, It has never opened a site i want.

I have also disabled every search engine apart from google in the "Search" settings.

I have also refreshed firefox and reinstalled it multiple times.

This is terrible. I have used Firefox and it predecessors ever since I started using a computer in 1994. Now I am now forced to use IE because I cannot solve my problem which started a couple of Firefox versions ago. I have tried the font thing the hardware acceleration, disabling the add-ons, everything. Pictures, text and buttons are missing. Videos don't work and just display a dead black screen. It's totally unusable. I have done several system restores and even tried Chrome which I hated. I want my Firefox back. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and the problem is on BOTH my laptop and desktop. I have done virus and malware scans. Is it possible that Super AntiSpyWare or Malware Bytes could have done some harm or removed something from windows that helps FF to work? I have used these programs for years though and they mainly seem to just get rid of tracking cookies. Please help as I am at my wits end. I am attaching a screenshot of my Yahoo page both with Firefox and IE. Thanks

Hello,

Please reference this support thread on SoundCloud's tech support forums. The thread contains all pertinent information, including videos of the problem and console screenshots made by myself and others. https://www.soundcloudcommunity.com/soundcloud/topics/skipping-to-the-middle-of-a-track-causes-stuttering-and-glitchy-audio-chrome-firefox

In a nutshell, when you try to skip forward during streaming audio, there is a buffering/stuttering issue that prevents proper playback of the track. This problem is confirmed on SoundCloud and Traxsource, and other people in the support thread have mentioned Mixcloud and other streaming sites. In other words, this is not the fault of one particular streaming service or another.

The problem does not occur in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, or Chrome. Well, to clarify, when the problem was posted on the SoundCloud support forums, Chrome was having the same issue. However, they did a version push a few days ago, which fixed it.

Here is my original post on SoundCloud support (minus erroneous information about Chrome), which has pertinent details. Note that we upgraded both Flash and Firefox recently, so although I mention previous versions in my original post, everyone involved has since updated their browsers and Flash.

As of now, the only fix for the issue is to roll back to Firefox 40.0.2. Thanks for any and all help =)

Matt

Original Message===========

Skipping to the middle of a track causes stuttering and glitchy audio (Firefox).

I am running Windows 10 Pro.

There seems to be a caching issue affecting playback - I started noticing this problem three or four days ago. Previously, I could skip through my stream at will, going straight to the middle of tracks or mixes to listen to a few seconds, and determine if I liked the track. Now, I cannot do that on Firefox 41.0.1. The problem is merely annoying on songs that are 3 or 4 minutes in length, as I must let them "cache" for perhaps ten seconds before skipping around. Unfortunately, the problem is a game-breaker on mixes that are, for example, 90 minutes long. If I skip to a point directly in the middle of the mix, nothing happens. The playback button alternates between the "Play" symbol, and the "Caching" symbol ("..."), and if audio does resume, it is glitchy and consists of different parts of the track being played back at once.

I've eliminated my internet connection as a source of the problem by loading up Edge. In Edge 20.10240.16384, the problem does not exist. I can scroll down to any 2-hour mix in my feed, click on the middle of it, and the audio starts right up. No caching, no stuttering or glitching.

I rolled back Flash to version 18 to see if it fixed the problem in Firefox, but it did not. The problem persisted, so I re-upgraded back to Flash 19.

I am legally blind. It has become a never-ending struggle to get Firefox to display colors properly. I use the high contrast black theme. and Firefox is configured to display white text on a black background. Recently I needed to tweak the colors for unvisited links. I couldn't because the palette colors were all black. I found a fix here to toggle the state of (I think) browwser.treference.inconfig. That gave me the old options screen back and it worked. Now I can't go back because the addons screen and about:config display white text on a white background.
