Hello everyone,

Please test with all versions of Firefox. I was able to reproduce this consistently even after a complete reinstall or reset. For this case, ESR was checked and surprisingly it stays online even when offline mode is used upon start using profile manager. For this, you can create a new profile and start the browser in offline mode and search something in address bar. At first, you will be greeted with an offline mode message but if you hit refresh then the browser becomes online and the search results are now available. This is not just related to search results but any websites.

Hope you guys can provide some info as this is really unexpected behavior.

Thank you and looking forward to your suggestions

Test specs: Windows 7-10/Linux/Ubuntu Firefox version: ESR 102.5.0/Standard 107.0

I've noticed there seems to be some kind of issue with Youtube. I had jumped into the site today same as usual, and found that there were times when it was not playing properly. I couldn't shut off annotations, for example, and then there were times when the browser would say that the page was slowing down Firefox (often taking up to 60% of memory in my task manager, which should not be possible). Other times I couldn't pause a video. or if I closed the vdeo out, it would still briefly play audio from it in the background. I tried clearing the cache and later my temp files in my laptop and checked other sites to see if similar issues occur. None of them seem to be affected by this. I even shut down the computer and retarted it while putting it on the charger during startup to clear any bugs via power cycle and this is still happening on and off. Anyone have a clue what's going on?

All firefox based browsers stop video playback if window/tab loses focus

Hello, for some reason firefox and all firefox related browsers have developed a problem on my system. All videos and streams stop playing if the window/tab loses focus. This is not the first time this has happened but earlier this year using the about:config flag I will mention below the problem seemed to be fixed but now it is back and worse than ever. I have a symmetrical gigabit connection and the problem only occurs in firefox and it's related browsers, no other aspect of my internet is affected, just video/streams and only in these kinds of browsers.

I do have a bunch of extensions but all are ones I have had for a long time, years in most cases, they were not the cause of the problem before and starting in troubleshoot mode plus a fresh profile in a fresh instal confirmed they are not to blame now either.

To be precise about the issue, when I say the videos stop that is exactly what I mean, there are no lags, no buffering, no partially loaded video bar( where applicable), no tab crashes, no connection problems, no warnings about certain tabs or extensions slowing things down, nothing at all, the video simply stops.

I have tried

- safe/troubleshooting mode to rule out any extensions
- with and without my vpn running
- doing fresh installs of the browsers/ complete fresh slate, revo uninstaller pro ran and using fresh profiles 
- found some suggestions for the about:config page, namely window_occlusion_tracking
- found some contradicting information about hardware acceleration but I tried both with and without and it makes no difference
- experimenting with different versions of firefox, so if you can see which version I am using as I post this, the reason it is not the latest version is because I have tried rolling back through older releases to find one that works, but have yet to suceed,

But no matter what I have tried I cannot get the problem sorted. Either I have that specific window and tab as the sole active window on my device or I need to click into it and either reload the tab or push the play button multiple times before playback resumes.

Open to ideas because i'd rather not have to resort to chrome, thanks

The Browser is gone completly basicly. I opened a "few" Tabs and then it suddenly crashed with my PC. Now My PC is getting old so Crashes aren't new but after the Restart of the PC Firefox just didn't work, it would Open but that's where it ends i can't access anything it doesn't react to any inputs, it's black screen can't even see my bookmarks it doesn't open last opende sites or anything altough i can Input somehting in the Hot bar but it won't react to it and just try to google it but that won't work as well. I installed a second version of Firefox now but for example my passwords.. not all of those were saved somewhere else. So if someone knows a fix for that or to just get them another way through files along side my bookmarks that would be very helpfull. thankss

I know this is most likely a feature, but it's been annoying the hell out of me since I switched from Chrome and I don't know how to disable it. I have looked at multiple (~3) Reddit threads (two of which were archived) which gave me a total of 0 answers, I've looked at other forums, and I've found, get this, nothing. It's so annoying when for whatever reason, my music gets paused and then it's not at the volume I need it to be at, so I turn it up and then almost immediately turn it back down because of the audio fading. All I want is to know how to disable this, PLEASE.

Containers are useful for using multiple accounts/logins in one browser instance. However, Google Docs does not work correctly. Every time I open a Google Docs/Sheets/etc. file in one container, it loads in a new tab in another container. It does this even if I copy the link into a tab with the correct container. I need to keep my Google accounts separated: one is personal, the other is for work. I like Firefox, and use it to get away from Google in other ways. But I can't escape Google because of work and sharing files with certain people. I hope there is a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

Dear community,

User in our engineering dept would like to use Fiefox Developer Edition to develop custom applications. As an IT I need to check application regarding security and support levels. I already check your support options – community and commercial so I would like to send you some questions regarding data protection. Please enter yes or no.

1 The application must not automatically transfer any company proprietary data to external networks (like the Internet): 2 The application should not open listener ports on the client: 3 The application must work with the existing security settings, e.g. no changes in GPO-setting or Edge/Chrome-settings (e.g. they must work without changing ActiveX settings): 4 The application must not reduce the security level of the computer system (e.g. the application must not exchange DLL-s or other files with lower and unpatched versions): 5 The application must work without admin privileges:

Hello! I am attempting to speed up a box office process by using a UIC card swiper with our ticketing software (which runs in-browser).

In non-Firefox browsers, the card swiper, when used, puts card numbers and expiration dates right into the necessary fields to save me time from typing them. Firefox (my much preferred browser!), however, reads the swipe as a Find In Page request, even when we're clicked into the text field where the card number is meant to go.

Does anyone have an insight on how to make this work the way it does on other browsers? Thank you!

Does anyone have an explanation how these directories and files were created?
