Hello,

I've been getting an error for some time now. Firefox tabs suddenly crash (usually media tabs with video, like Twitch or video conference sites) and I can't seem to find a solution. But most importantly, many videos or live streams show graphic artifacts. You can check it in the attached screenshot). I have tried many things to solve it, but none worked. This is what I tried:

  • Changing cables and monitors.
  • Disabling extensions and plugins.
  • Disabling hardware acceleration.
  • Installing Firefox from scratch.
  • Installing an old version.
  • Installing Nightly.
  • Removing the GPU. The issue persisted with a different video card and with integrated graphics. So the GPU is not the issue.
  • Trying using another OS. I thought my Windows install might have been corrupt, but it also happened in Ubuntu.
  • Trying other browsers. I tried Chrome (which resulted in the issue as well) and Edge (which surprisingly did fine, it's my only solution right now).

I would love to keep using Firefox but it's a pain to watch media like this. I don't know if the issue might be from the motherboard or another component. Between the crashes and this I can't use it normally.

I can try providing any details needed to solve the problem. Could you please help me? I don't know what else I can try.

Hi, It appears my firefox account was comprimised, and they where able to gain access to all stored info and saved logins casuing major damage.

All accounts have since been secured, and in process of recovery from effected sites.

With the browsing history logs, it looks like it has tabs for the date it was added and when it was last modified, but not actively used, are these meant to be by default?

It would also be a nice feature to see which device was used to access the webpage, as i have had to wipe 2 computers as a precaution in case the either was hacked into, if i could of seen which one, this might of been preventable

If it could say for example Site Device Added YouTube My Device 1 12-05-2021 Gmail My Device 2 11-05-2021 Amazon unknown device 11-05-2021

Action can be taken sooner

Looks like feedback site is undergoing changes, so i can't suggest there.

Regards, KG

The website, Radio Garden, doesn't even allow you to register, much less input passwords or credit cards. If any, the creator of this site only collects data for analysis reasons, that's really about it. Radio Garden is a site that lets you listen to radio stations around the world without the need of ever registering at all (and through mobile, users can pay a small fee to rid of intrusive ads, but not actual, radio station ads in which they have no control of). Can the guys at Firefox know that Radio Garden is NOT an illegitimate site and flag it as secure and safe instead? Thanks.

And yes, there have been sites that are flagged as false positive because Firefox, along with other browsers, like to get incredibly touchy for no apparent reason.

My money program uses an importer to download files directly (rather than saving to desktop & manually importing. The institutions' choices always include OFX, QFX, and QIF. The Application list in Options lists OFX -- in two places-- and QFX. Both are assigned to the importer.

No matter what format I choose, I have to browse for the importer (several clicks). To check, I downloaded account information for several accounts held with the same institution, cycling through those 3 formats. Same result each time. "Always do this" is checked and OFX and QFX are assigned to the importer as you can see in the screenshot.

Shouldn't FF be adding QIF when I download activity in that format? I certainly didn't add OFX or QFX manually! And can anyone explain why "Use importer" is broken?

TIA mm

Firefox doesn't work correctly with Kaspersky Safe Money function but Edge and Chrome do!

I am currently running Windows 10 and Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit) and Kaspersky Internet Security 21.3.10.391(b).

I have discovered an anomaly unique to Firefox which causes issues when using the Kaspersky Safe Money function for more than one website.

If you do not add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to both the Firefox normal browser window that you use for all browsing AND also to the Protected Browser window, when you try to open 2 or more websites that should have protected browers, you get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to only the Firefox normal browser window, you still get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

The reason this is unique to Firefox is that you do NOT need to add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to either Chrome or Edge to make the Safe Money function work correctly for more than 1 website.

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to Edge or Chrome, you only need to add it once, to the normal browser window, you do NOT need to add it to the protected browser window.

Surely this is a fault in Firefox and should be investigated and corrected or can someone explain why this happens with Firefox but not the other browsers.

I look forward to any information, advice etc that will help.

Use the current FF version 88.0.1 - Question about the bookmarks toolbar:

After the FF repair are the icons largely anonymized? They work fine - I'm just missing the typical website icon. For example the four-color ebay license plate. - How can I update the anonymous trademarks ??? 

Firefox-Sync is activated, but I've got no changes to the bookmarks-icons. Thanks for the tip ...
