I had Firefox 89 when this morning I could not watch my Amazon videos because I kept getting a message saying that I needed to upgrade my Chrome browser. Since I never use Chrome, I decided to check if Firefox was at the latest version. When I clicked into options, I saw a notice saying that Firefox is not my default browser. I thought that somehow something had messed up my settings since I made Firefox my default browser when I first bought this computer over a yea ago, so I clicked the button to set it as default. That took me to Windows settings which showed that Firefox was already my default browser.

Since then I have restarted the computer multiple times; upgraded to Firefox 90 and restarted; deleted Chrome; reset Firefox; gone to Windows settings and changed my default browser to Edge. then later reset it back to Firefox.

The Firefox options STILL indicate that Firefox is not my default browser.

What is going on? Does anyone have any ideas?

I first noticed this after I could not play my Amazon videos this morning -- which I can play now after having reset Firefox -- but I am worried that this will affect other things.

I have two problems with Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit).

1. Sometimes the program stops responding; sometimes it restarts on its own but sometimes I have to close it.

2. Sometimes when I switch from Firefox to another open program Firefox closes on its own.

Thanks.

About a day or two ago, random images stopped loading on sites I visit regularly.

I haven't changed anything on the browser. In fact, I disabled add-ons to see if it would fix the problem (it hasn't).

I'm already neurotic about deleting the cache and such after bold texteverybold text session every day.

It only occurs on Firefox desktop (90.0.2 64-bit); everything loads fine on mobile and on other desktop browsers.

when embedding a bigger video in firefox i got audio bugs. It crackles like an old movie. No problems in Chrome.

The video was converted with VLC to MP4/MOV with H-264 video and MPEG audio codecs. Because of its a very high quality video, the file size and Bitrates are very high. Is it possible, that firefox has a problem with that?

I know, usually you should never offering a video with that size on a web template, but its local hosted for an kiosk-mode project.

Example File:

FILE Name: Holliday_Hawaii_2019.mp4 Type: MP4 File Size: 5.39 GB (5.78.399.926 Bytes)

VIDEO Resolution: 1920 x 1080 px Data rate: 8082 kBit/s Total bitrate: 8721 kBit/s Frame rate: 23.98 Pictures/Second

AUDIO Bit rate: 638 kBit/s Channels: 2 Audio sampl: 44.100 kHze rate

Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

When I open Google Maps it doesn't show the normal icons for navigation on the map. It doesn't do anything when I have hardware acceleration enabled and I type something in the search bar. If I disable hardware acceleration it does a search, but in no way can I get it to show the place I want to see. It just shows the map of Rotterdam, where Google thinks I live based on my IP address.

It does work in Safari though, so it's a Firefox problem. I hope you can fix it. Google seems to give the FF team lots of problems.

Hello!

I got this issue when i am clicking on input tools (on screen keyboard) on google search page,it opens up with a 3-5 second delay and this problem started after i installed version Firefox 90.0.02 64 bit.

My OS is Win 10 64bit. All updates except KB5004237 are installed.

I do have a couple of add-ons like Default Bookmark Folder and uBlock Origin and i even disabled them but still the issue stands with input tools delay.

I also refreshed my Firefox but that didn't help either.

Any solutions to this issue?

Hello there,

since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

With best regards.

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

Hi there. When watching twitch or youtube on one screen everything is just fine. I do have 2 monitors, and sometimes i watch 2 twitch streamers at the same time. or one with youtube and one with twitch. Everything have been working just fine, but for maybe 2 weeks ago, the UI or stuff around the video\stream im watching is flickering. This only happens when watching 2 videos at same time. It flickers on both. The video itself is just fine, but everything around is flickering, like chat on twitch, or the recommended videos on the rightside of youtube video window. Turning Safe mode on and it stops. uninstalling all addons, and the problem is still there. And still work fine in Safe mode. Havent done any changes anywhere with firefox, and only use 2 addons. And if im watching 2 videos and scrolls down and up on one of the screens, it flickers even more. Hardware Acc is off.

I wrote a message in GAB chat but just as I sent it I lost internet . The message is gone but not delivered. I searched online how to recover and followed instructions to do this. type or paste about:cache in the address bar and press Enter. Under disk click the link to List cache entries. This may take a long time.

Eventually you should see a list that lets you find the URL you're trying to decode. If you click it, Firefox should show the content there and list the compression type, which most often will be:

Content-Encoding: gzip

In that case, if you save the encoded content to a new file with a .gz extension you should be able to decompress it using your favorites ZIP utility. Of course, finding the beginning and end of the content may not be intuitive. I don't know whether the cache entry info page is helpful or not.

    The problem is I have no idea which item in the vast list is on GAB because they all say google and Firefox thanks for any advice and please tell Firefox we are extremely disappointed that they teamed up with commie Google we can no longer download you tube videos unless we go through chrome and the downloader they offer uses 3 time as much data in the same format as the down loaders we were able to use

iMac macOS 11.5 Firefox 90.0.2

Firefox pretty much crashed every time I quit. Doesn't matter if I'm looking at a web page or close all windows before quitting.

Restarting in Trouble Shoot mode doesn't help either.

The cause seems to be synchronisation - if I sign out of my account and no longer synchronise, the problem goes away and I can quit without Firefox crashing.
