I know this has been asked plenty of times but Firefox is running multiple processes to the point I don't want to use it anymore. I've done google searches on how to stop this problem and tried everything suggested but nothing works. Any ideas before I say adios to this slow crappy browser? I'm still using windows 7 but not for much longer.

Empty dialog for extensions after gfx.webrender.all: true

Nom: Firefox Version: 83.0 Identifiant de compilation: 20201126174332 ID de distribution: archlinux Agent utilisateur: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0 Système d’exploitation: Linux 5.9.10-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun, 22 Nov 2020 14:16:59 +0000

After enabling gfx.webrender.all (value true in about:config), there is no more tearing in web sites like google street view. But all my extensions, while working, offer an empty dialog pop-uo when I left click on their icon in Firefox main bar. UBlock origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger or Joplin all act with the same behavior. See screenshot. If I disable gfx.webrender.all all my extensions dialogs are back.

I had gfx.webrender.all set to true before version 83.0 of Firefox and my extensions were working fine.

Cannot create Certificate Exception

On my home network, I run a Ubiquiti UniFi Network (Security Gateway, Switch and WiFi Access Points). I access the administrative functions with UniFi Controller software which accesses those functions via https://localhost:8443. The Gateway Roouter itself is at 10.0.0.1:443, but cannot be administered at this address.

When I try to access the website, I get the standard Firefox invalid security certificate warning as the certificate is self-signed (image 1). Once I Accept the Risk and Continue, I can successfully log into the site. But once I quit my Firefox session, whenever I launch Firefox and try to access the site, I am again given the same invalid security certificate.

Previously, I was able to create a certificate exception which bypassed that warning, but no longer.

When I go into Firefox's Preferences : Privacy & Security : Certificates : View Certificates page, I can see a Temporary exception (image 2), which presumably only lasts for the current session. I try to Add Exception, enter my localhost port number' (image 3), then click on Get Certificate. It tells me that I have valid, verified identification. There is no need to add an exception (image 4).

And yet, every time I visit the localhost website, I am prompted with the warning. Any ideas of what I might do avoid this warning every time I want to access it? Is there some way to allow this device (or even ALL devices) on my home network to be trusted?

Also attached are images of my UniFi Certificate.

Thank you for any assistance.

I have constructed a smart bookmark using places query places query like: place:queryType=0&sort=8&domain=mydomain.com

The full URL is something like: https://mydomain.com?model=product&id=282

Now I want to further restrict the results by filtering out certain HTTP GET Parameter values. for example:

  • I want to leave out URLs having model as a parameter in the URL
  • I want to include URLs having 'product' as a value for parameter model

I looked at the documentation and could find anything related to GET parameters. Is this possible?

Hi all,

After month of using, the screenshot function of Firefox seems to have disappeared. Right click contextual menu does now show the option to take a screenshot and the [three dots] -> Take Screenshot menu action does nothing. Moreover, the icon of the function seems to be missing (see attached images). I run latest (83 64-bit) version on a new MacBook pro.

Thanks in advance, Alex

I recently posted a question on how to fix Yahoo articles pictures not showing-up (it's about half of the pictures in some articles). It appears to be related to pictures that are tied to Instagram, Twitter, etc. I did get a couple of responses to my issue....thank you. The problem is that neither response fixed the problem. Yahoo is a major site that Firefox should fully support. Microsoft Edge works perfectly when using the Yahoo site. I have been a long, long time Firefox user on multiple devices, but I am about ready to switch to Edge for good if this can't be corrected. How do I (or anybody seeing this) let the Firefox developers know this problem needs to be fixed stat?

Thanks, Jim

Hi- i'm a little confused about the "collections" feature on my pixel. is it supposed to carry over onto my computer? I'd love to access my collections on my desktop. I also recently upgraded my phone- my collections haven't transferred over to my new phone and that's also frustrating. I might just be an idiot but i can't seem to find any documentation on whether collections syncs between desktop and mobile; an indication that this is generally thought to be so obvious it needs no documentation.

When pressing the speaker icon in Google Translate, I get a toast message saying "Can't playback audio. Try refreshing page." I also have a plugin that uses an online library of sounds to pronounce highlighted words, but does not produce any audio when pressing play.

I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Restarting Machine
  • Toggling all auto-play features, hardware acceleration, extensions, and plugins
  • Starting Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Configuring speakers
  • Re-enabling Firefox in Windows Firewall

In the Developer console I get the following error message: DOMException: An unknown error occurred while processing decodeAudioData. (Attached screenshot)

My current Windows version is 1909

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
