When using the variable refresh rate on the Galaxy S21, the screen is displayed incorrectly on some websites. To be precise, screen artifacts occur after a short period of time after moving the page or stopping scrolling.

To check, clien.net has screen artifacts in almost all cases.

Long story short... this is my first Mac (MacBook Pro 13-inch, M1, 2020). I noticed that there is a mini Firefox icon at the end of my dock before the "stack" downloads folder and trash icon. I was wondering if anyone else has the same issue. Restarting seems to help but comes back, removing Firefox from the dock also seems to help but once it's back in there it comes back after a while.

Firefox Design. Continously and automatically backing up Sessions to an additional file and folder of my choice

A problem I'm not sure Firefox has addressed or resolved in all the years I've been using Firefox - even after it changed its programming, and the way it saves session (or even bookmark) backups to the profile folder, is: whenever Firefox is forced to shut down after a computer software issue (like freezing, blue screen, extreme sluggishness, etc.), and we presume (with fingers crossed) that Firefox will open back up with all our tabs intact for the past 7 - 20 days, but instead opens with them all missing and forever gone - even after immediately and instinctively proceeding to the profile folder (before shutting down Firefox) to recover them using Mozilla's recovery steps to replace the "places.sqlite" file, I periodically find that every single one of the recovery files has been re-stamped with the same date and time (and missing data) as the new places.sqlite file.

So I hope and pray, that because this issue happens to thousands of Firefox users over time - no matter what Firefox version update their using (because it has happened in several versions for me), that a terrific way to prevent forcing users to find and use a great sessions manager addon that saves tabs (with all their history - that won't also crash or easily be written over), or forcing users to constantly worry and remind themselves to manually backup the required profile files daily, or having to remember minimally, to backup the profile files "before" opening Firefox after a crash, (which seldom happens), that Firefox offers its users the option to set Firefox up to continuously and automatically save a complete new (additional) set of backup files to a different folder of the user's choosing, with the extra option to save a "set" number of session backups, where Firefox can't access them upon opening. Imagine how much anguish, anger and self loathing Firefox will eliminate in the world with this one simple option.

Here's another wish-list item. If Firefox could present the list of open Firefox windows that appear at the top right of the screen whenever hovering the mouse over the Firefox icon in the taskbar, I wish for the popup list to permanently nudge down so it "never" covers up my open tabs in each of the open window's (which is how I know I determin which of the numerous windows to navigate). And of course the list should self adjust whenever I turn the "Menu Bar" on or off. Thank you, in advance, for considering these two important items toward the Firefox experience.

If you're wondering why I haven't moved on to the latest version. It's because I all too "often" encounter my valuable "business" addons no longer working, and the miserable task of trying to go back to the previous version, or trying to find new addons that work half as good. Sometimes all of my addons disappear. I also wish I could turn off Firefox's constant reminder, to upgrade since I've asked twice before, with no Mozilla reply. Thank you again.

Debugging steps:

   Tried clearing the cache & reloading
   Tried disabling ell extensions+ running browser in Safe Mode.
   Tried several different streams: some streams w/ no customization might fix the problem, but it's not entirely clear to me which streams are "completely" customization-free.
   Tried different browser: Edge does not exhibit this issue

The Problem:

Been noticing this problem in Firefox at https://cytu.be over the last couple of months; this seems to be happening with any stream on the site, ; I don't remember exactly when I started noticing it. This is observed directly on the website, not any third-party site.

Messing with stuff outside of the web player seems to have a tendency to break the web player's volume control, resulting in its volume maxing out and desyncing from the video stream; it almost sounds at times like the audio stream is restarting from the beginning of whatever video is playing, while the video stream continues as normal. I've seen it happen mostly while using a wireless remote + Fliirc to adjust settings (mainly OS volume, brightness, and f.lux settings) but it can also happen from my keyboard, as well as manipulating the web player's volume control too much, and also zooming in/out the webpage too much. Clearing the cache & reloading doesn't work, and neither does disabling all add-ons, or running Firefox in Safe Mode. The only solution I've found so far is to refresh the webpage.

Spoke with site's developer, who remarked that he had not heard of anyone else experiencing this bug, and suggested it must be a Firefox issue; something about how the browser interacts with the OS' audio subsystem is probably causing this bug.

Does not seem to happen in latest version of Edge, for some reason.

Running the latest build of Windows 10 64-Bit Windows 10 64-bit OS Build 19042.928 and Firefox 64-bit 87.0.

I have two email addresses. Many years ago I had email address #2 routed to come in through my Earthlink account. In other words, all email from email 1 and email 2 came in to Thunderbird via one account, account #1.

As of the latest TB update, now emails from email 2 are coming in on email 2, and then sending them to email 1 - so the info from senders no longer are on the sender line.

Attached is a screen shot of what is happening ...

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My tabs are frequently crashing and some strange behaviors occur with firefox after these crashes (adblock failing to work until browser restart, browser going blank for a split second). My browser also occasionally crashes, and even more infrequently my entire computer will crash which usually happens after series of tabs crashing in a row. It may be a ram issue but I have no problems with any other programs on my computer so I doubt that.
