Bonjour, Hello,

I contact you because, even without an adblocker, Youtube is very slow with Firefox navigator. I don't understand why and I don't have this problem with Google Chrome ? Fews years earlier, I never had this problem with slow Youtube when using Firefox Navigator. I don't know if the problem comes from Youtube or Mozilla and I contacted both of them.

Thank you.

Bonjour,

Je vous contacte car, même sans bloqueur de publicité, Youtube est très lent avec le navigateur Firefox. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi et je n'ai pas ce problème avec Google Chrome ? Quelques années plus tôt, je n'avais jamais eu ce problème de lenteur avec Youtube lorsque j'utilisais Firefox Navigator. Je ne sais pas si le problème vient de Youtube ou de Mozilla et je les ai contactés tous les deux.

I've been using Firefox for the past two years. I go onto www.homedepot.com all the time. Every day, multiple times a day. All the sudden over the past two weeks, it won't load my bookmark. I type it in manually, it doesn't work. I clear cache, history and restart browser. No luck. I restart computer, still an issue. I go into 'private window', kind of loads and then all the sudden freezes. I use Chrome and it works no problem. Then I search the Firefox support forum to find that multiple other people have had this issue over the past five years.

I mean wow, I use Home Depot to buy materials for work plus a credit card account and then to just have it not work anymore on this browser for no apparent reason is crazy. Then to not be able to contact anyone at Firefox regarding the issue is also crazy.

I mean it's fucking homedepot. I know like 10 years ago there was a data breach with them so maybe firefox is protecting itself from them? But then just have a message pop up saying you can't access the site on firefox. No problem. But to have it be so open ended and a continuous problem over years. That's just dumb. How can I trust Firefox with my information and data if I can't even access a basic site with no recourse for solution or understanding or help?

Recently Firefox is slower and when I have one screen up and go to task manager it shows anywhere from 8 to 40 instances of Firefox running and sometimes 98% CPU usage. I have had other problems since the Microsoft January 9, 2024 update. Is this related or is this a separate Firefox issue? How to start fixing?

thanks

Ron

Is there a way to skip the wait for the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button to appear? I assemble and set up copiers for a living. Every single one of them has a self-signed certificate. I see this "Potential security risk ahead" screen dozens of times a day because of this. I understand why I'm seeing it. I understand the importance of a security warning like that. What I would like to do is skip the delay between when you click on advanced and the "Accept risk and continue" button becoming available to be clicked on. That or some way to disable that security warning specifically for self-signed certificates would be ideal.

I have been a Firefox user for most of my time on a computer and that's a lot of years. A regular site I visit is Townhall.com. A few months ago I could no longer play videos because the link (video screen) would not appear. The text below where the screen should have been appears. I worked with Townhall on this and we could not solve it. Interesting was that periodically the link would appear but now doesn't appear at all. So I am forced to use MS Edge for Townhall videos.

Then it happened on another site I frequent - RacerX.com. When I try to play a video I get a blank screen with the message: "Unfortunately your Targeted Advertising privacy settings prevent us from showing you this YouTube Video. Please update your consent to see this content." I cannot find anything in settings which should cause this. I changed nothing. Settings are the same as they've been for years. So now for RacerX videos I have to use MS Edge.

I would prefer to continue to use Firefox as my browser but switching back and forth is not productive. As much as I do not want to make MS Edge my default browser it looks like I will have no choice unless you can help me solve this issue.

Firefox used to auto fill forms for me but lately it does not. On the rare occasion that it does (for one web site), it fills in one field at a time, not all at once like it used to. It does not fill in my address either.

I tried the usual troubleshooting without success. I went to settings, privacy & security, passwords, and made sure "fill usernames and passwords automatically" was checked. I went to the history section and made sure "remember form and search history" was checked. I went to the custom settings for history section and made sure that Firefox does not clear "form & search history" when it closes. For some reason,(I am in the US) I don't have a "forms and auto fill" section to scroll down too as some users suggest, nor do I have the "auto fill address" box to check or uncheck. Nor do I have a "saved addresses" button to check or uncheck or where I can supposedly add, edit, or delete an address.

I am running windows 11 and use Malewarebytes for my antivirus, although I can find no settings in the Malwarebytes suite that would impact Firefox's ability to auto fill forms. Any suggestions??

I see no microphone on in the address bar for Firefox. I read that it is supposed to be (standard feature?) on the left side. How do I restore or enable this feature? For good measure, would someone please send me an image (snip& sketch?) of the address bar showing what this looks like. First time posting so I don't even know if one can attach or include images in a reply.
