The last auto upgrade included a calendar function, which I switched off as I thought this was causing the problem. But now after all the messages have downloaded, I get the usual pop-up box in the bottom right of the screen telling me I have received x messages but it only half fades in and the whole PC jams. CTR-ALT-DEL does not work and I can't switch to a different window or even click on anything in the Thunderbird screen. The only thing that I can do is hard reboot the PC and switch off the router, which allows me to start up Thunderbird without anything downloading. I am using Windows 7 and Avast as my AV. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

FireFox Developer 99.0b8 (64-bit) on the "aurora update channel" on Windows 10 PC (version 1803, build 17134.2208)

I notice whenever an update is pending (the green dot appears in the icon for the "Open Application Menu"), FF becomes unresponsive in a way. When it happens: It does not totally freeze. I can select/switch between existing tabs & scroll thru their pages. I can close tabs. I can open a new empty tab. But I can't load or refresh any pages. The only fix is to do the update, and re-launch.

Since the developer edition gets updated frequently, it is a pain.

I like the Developer Tools! But... How can I scale back the FF "update frequency", or "change the channel", so updates are, like monthly at most?

thank you.

I recently upgraded graphics cards from an Nvidia GTX 1080 to an AMD 6900XT. Since then I noticed video stuttering on YouTube while playing 4k videos, especially noticeable at 4k/60FPS (example video ). Prior to the upgrade, I was not experiencing issues.

I monitored task manager as the video was playing to see CPU usage, which was sitting at 25% (4 core 8 thread CPU). GPU usage was fluctuating from 1-3%.

I tried resetting all the changed configuration options in about:config, removing all add-ons, "Refreshing" Firefox, and ultimately uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing has worked so far except for "Troubleshooting mode" in about:support. In that mode, I experience no stuttering and GPU usage rises to 25-35% with the video playing, even before I reinstalled.

This most likely isn't a networking issue as the "Stats for nerds" option on the YouTube video shows I have 10-20s of buffer while the video is still stuttering.

I would like to find out what's different about Troubleshooting Mode that is not giving me the same problem while in "Normal Mode". Any advice?

I had the same problem like the link below when I use firefox.

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/tjxh7s/videos_freeze_when_window_isnt_in_focus/

So, did what the instruction says and it solved the problem regarding discord.

But, since I changed that setting, firefox doesn't remember my google login or dark skin settings of other websites (it was always automatically logged in when I use YouTube. Not like it remembers the password).

How can I solve it? I resetted firefox multiple times.

The styles look astonishingly wrong, I really think it is a problem on my end, but cant figure out how to fix it, as you can see in the pictures, text is incorrectly sized and/or justified, color gradients are also weird looking, as well as sizing of many elements and tons of other things.

I have tried to completely remove Firefox from my system and reinstalling it, that did not seem to fix it. The reason I think is is a problem of mine is because i was playing with fonts (emojis weren't working on my system,not on Firefox tho, now they are in both)

I don't think the things i did with the fonts did anything to Firefox, since this problem only showed up on Firefox, but since the problem arrived just after a reboot while I was installing and removing the fonts, I think its important to mention.

To sum up I think the problem comes from my local configuration of Firefox, I probably did not delete it all before reinstalling, I am running (Arch btw) a current version of EndevourOS.

So I have installed Firefox on my Galaxy S20 Plus running Android 12. All permissions are granted and everything is working except the camera. When testing it with https://webcammictest.com/ it ask for permission to use the camera and mic. I of cause allow the use and afterwards it says: The device is not found.

I have tested the mic alone and it is working. The test site is also working in Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi and Brave. So chromium browser do not have any issue with the camera or mic. I have also tried other tests sites with the same result.

I first noticed it when I had to call my doctor which sent a link to a site with camera feedback on. I was surprised and stressed about it wasn't working. Having a doctor waiting and a sick child, while installing Chrome to get it working, was not a fun experience.

Error message when accessing business websites which use Cloudflare: "ERROR 1005 ACCESS DENIED DUE TO ASN 9009". This seems to be because Firefox is using ip addresses which are blacklisted. This has been checked with blacklist services such as DroneBL. I am not using a VPN. I constantly clear cache & cookies from Firefox and then restart the computer. I am not ignorant or stupid. Why is Firefox using blacklisted ip addresses? Is it because of M247? Is there any way around this extremely annoying problem? Thank you for your response.

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

Hi,

My partner has an issue with Google working within Firefox (FF). The problem started around 27 April 2022.

In short:

    • Both gMail and Google Drive keep saying “Ooops … the system encountered a problem (#2003) - Retrying in x s…” and “Not Connected”.
    • The above message may stop for a period and then gMail within FF fails to render its pages properly. Icons go missing. For example the check boxes to the left of the emails disappear while the remainder of the subject lines remains. Menu icons across the top of an open gMail document disappear (like Download, Report Spam and Delete icons ….). This seems to suggest a cache issue.
    • Search within FF using Google fails also. After entering search terms and pressing ENTER, nothing happens.

Note:

  • The stand-alone Google Chrome environment works fine. So gMail, Google Docs, Sheets etc work OK in the stand-alone Google Chrome app.
  • Duck Duck Go search works within the FF browser.
  • I have noted that if I simply log into MY Google Account under Firefox on her PC the same problem occurs.
  • If we log into my PC the problem is not apparent using either of our Google Accounts. So it appears to be an issue on her PC.

I have tried :

  • Flushing the cache in FF for all time, including data. Then rebooted.
  • We have followed your procedures under “Help” ie Runs a Firefox a tune up; used “Diagnose issues” and “cleared the startup cache”.
  • Have run Sophos AND MalwareBytes across the whole laptop. No PUPs or malware detected.

I uninstalled FF using Revo Uninstaller which initially uses the standard FF uninstall exe then it scans the drive for removes all FF files and entries within the Registry; then I re-installed the latest version of FF. Rebooted. No luck here either. I assume there is some remnant file that remains on the hard disk as some settings are retained after a new install.

Hardware: Lenovo ThinkPad , model 20QFS00B00. OS: Windows 10 Pro, vers 10.0.19044 Build 19044, 64 bit Firefox browser: is up-to-date; vers 99.0.1 (64 bit)


I can't find any recent issues related to this specific problem. Please advise what to try next.

Of course I'm happy to provide additional info if required or work through different scenarios to isolate the issue(s).

Thanks in advance for any assistance, Steve Gee
