Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

For those who are annoyed at Firefox on macOS using ⇧⌘P for New Private Window instead of ⇧⌘N, I too, have this issue.

Unfortunately after much trawling around on the interwebs it has led me nowhere except for this sad bug report on Bugzilla.

Does anyone know how else I can use ⇧⌘N for New Private Window?

I dislike how bad the customer service is. Firefox doesn't listen to anyone and works hard to make sure they cannot listen to anyone. Notice how this link doesn't work: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page

However, the main reason I no longer use this is the back and forward buttons don't work on 3rd part mice. It;s really annoying, and I don't want to get carpal tunnel over manually reaching for buttons that don't actually require that.

In short, I'm not a masochist. I want products that are not frustrating; who doesn't? The "community" (i.e. outsourced customer service to unpaid lemmings who give their one and only lives to this for some reason) doesn't result in changes or answers.

Because Mozilla refused to receive feedback elsewhere, I need to post this here to give them some kind of a clue that they're moving in the wrong direction. 3rd party hardware is everywhere. Accommodate it or fall behind into uselessness.

I am using Developer Edition, 85.0b3 (64-bit) Windows (en-US). Up and until last version, 84.0x, I was able to access the network.security.esni.enabled setting, but now it's missing from about:config I have tried all three versions of 85.0 ( b1 b2 b3 ... so far ), and none of them have this setting. Manually adding the key has no effect.

I have also checked the [notes for 85.0beta] ,but couldn't find any note with regards to this change.

Is this a bug, or has this feature been removed, or moved to a different config page?

I like firefox's popup blocker, but since recently it's not been able to handle my bookmarklet that pops up a window. It causes a popup blocked message *as if the popup had come from the site I was visiting* whereas actually it's come from clicking the button in the toolbar.

e.g. I have a bookmarklet that bookmarks the current page with a Nextcloud service. It uses a popup to do this.

Firefox's popup options are (a) allow all popups - no thanks! (b) allow popups for the site I'm visiting - again, not what I want, or (c) allow this specific popup this time.

It would be great if there were options like:

- allow popups taking me to domain/url x (e.g. I trust my nextcloud site) - allow popups clicked from the bookmarks toolbar - allow popups from a particular bookmarklet

Do any work arounds exist? I'm sure this has only recently been a problem as I've always used the popup blocker.

On Youtube, it appears to show a progress bar but no video, and the wheel just spins. Pandora shows the song, but does not play. Streaming radio stations do not play. Sites that I am a member and pay for, does not play their podcasts. All happened at once. All of this does however work in Chrome. I do not want to use Chrome. I've started FF in safemode, and messed with extensions and plug ins, nothing seems to work for me.

Hay, i have problem when i minimizing/maximizing firefox developers (by double click at window title bar/hit the button minimize/maximize) it will causes double windows title bar. How i solved this with close firefox developers and re-open it again. As you can see at attached img, it's added new window title bar (white/outer).

When there is firefox update, i always hope the update may solve this problem.

Thanks for the help.

Using Firefox 85.0b2 (64 bit) Windows 10. Both Firefox and Windows 10 updated themselves in past couple of days.

Previously Firefox played videos on YouTube. Now it does not. (still image appears, and spinning circle but nothing further; and then YouTube suggests try restarting my device).

Videos still play OK in MS Edge.

I have tried all advice I can find, including clearing Cache, clearing cookies, and resetting Firefox. Starting Firefox in Safe mode. Restarting Windows and Firefox multiple times. Nothing has made any difference.

Can anyone suggest anything else to try??

Hi Mozilla, I write this message here since I can't find a good place to contact you (bugzilla.mozilla.org maybe?)

Anyway, I'm a huge fan of everything you do and how you do it, and I don't hesitate from time to time to donate to the foundation.

I'm aware that most of your products and services are free, and therefore you need more resources than only donation.

The reason why I send this message, it's because I think you could add a new (paid) service to your list. A reliable and robust MX mail server system, that we could rent each month.

I'm actually renting 2 Cloud VPS, and my biggest issue was to have a trustable mail server that would not look suspicious for spam filters (spam assassin, Google etc).

That's the only reason why I pay a Google Suite every month.. to have a reliable and solid @mydomain email, and be sure my emails will be delivered every time. But I would totally prefer to give you this money better than them.

I know there's other solutions already, but I think it make sense for Mozilla to have this service, since emails and mail servers are very sensitive regarding privacy, personal data etc. and we all trust you more than Google empire.

I don't know if you can read this, but please tell me if there's a better place to send this message.

Thank you very much, Long life to Mozilla, all the best,

Phil
