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.

Using TB v91.5.1 on Windows 10 x-64. I have several mail accounts, one of which is for a hotmail.com address. This has been working fine for years, but over the past couple of days, I don't seem to be able to send emails form this account. I can receive them fine, but when I try to send, I get the small pop-up telling me it's sending the message, and the progress bar is at 100%, but it doesn't send the message, it just sits there.

I looked in the error console, but nothing was added when I tried sending.

You can see my server settings for the account in the attached image.

Any ideas? Please let me know if there is any other info you need.

Thanks

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.

Ever since installing firefox on a new pc, I've had the problem where I would click a link or enter a url, and sometimes (not always, about 20% of the time), the page will not load (there is a loading symbol but no page shows up), then it stops loading after about 10-20 seconds and there is no page (when I enter a url from a new tab, there is just a blank tab, when I click a link on a webpage, I just remain on the webpage), but when I re-enter the url or re-click the link, it does work. So happens for all links of the website I'm trying to visit.

To summarize: I click a link, and sometimes it loads for 10-20s and then just stops, and when I click again, it works.

Any help is appreciated!

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.

This was going to be a question about Firefox being unable to display the file picker dialog, but I managed to find a solution that worked for me along the way. Since it was nowhere near the top of Google's results, I thought I'll share my solution in the hopes that this would help someone facing this same issue.

The hardware:

  • Asus UM425IA Zenbook (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU)

Worked in:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Firefox provided by APT repository
  • Xorg display server

Not working in:

  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Firefox 99.0.1 provided by snap
  • Wayland display server
  • File picker worked briefly on fresh install, but something (not sure what) quickly breaks file picker functionality

The symptoms:

  • Firefox stopped being able to open file picker dialogs
  • Right clicking an image and selecting "Save Image As..." does nothing
  • With forms that accept file upload (such as on this post question page "Add images (optional):"), clicking "Browse" does nothing
  • File downloads work correctly when set to "Save files to ..." under Settings, but nothing happens when set to "Always ask you where to save files"
  • No response to "Ctrl + O" open file shortcut

Similar questions and solutions:

Things I tried that did not work:

  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Starting with add-ons disabled
  • Troubleshoot mode
  • Clearing startup cache
  • Clearing cookies and site data
  • Clearing history
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Creating and using a new profile
  • Deleting the `xulstore.json` file from the profile directory
  • Toggling all permissions under Ubuntu Settings > Applications > Firefox to off and then back to on
  • chmod 777 ~/Downloads
  • Disabling native file picker "ui.allow_platform_file_picker = false"

And finally, what fixed it for me was to go into "about:config" and change "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker" from "2" to "0". Credit to this post that clued me in.

I really hope this saves someone else 2 days of hair pulling and I would appreciate advice from someone more knowledgeable than me on:

  • Why this fixed the problem
  • Whether I should be opening a bug report either against Firefox, or Ubuntu
  • Whether I should also be changing "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.mime-handler" and "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.settings", both are currently set to "2"

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.

My problem is this:

If I click on the open new tab button, and then I keep my cursor there, such that I get the little tooltip "Open a new tab (Ctrl+T)..." , Firefox will stop the address bar from updating---it won't show my keyboard inputs, not will it search, or do anything else. This will resolve itself after I move my cursor away from the open new tab button and the tooltip stops showing, even my inputs will appear there.

This quite annoying, especially when opening a tab to search for something quickly...

The latest example is the button to sign into LinkedIn. It is not working in Firefox, but it does in other browsers. I have other examples just from today. I have used firefox as default for many years. I assume this is a security thing, but these are basic links. I have no add-ons or other complications. Most times, I do not even realize there is a problem, but when I feel something is wrong, I try another browser and it works. Thank you.

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

Hi.

Using Windows 10. Suddenly, Mozilla gives the "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window" message. I've tried all steps listed on the help site except reinstalling Windows 10, as the comment made said this would require reinstalling programs that did not come pre-installed on my PC, which I don't want to do if possible. I have uninstalled Mozilla, and the install stalls at about 70% with the aforementioned error message. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

This sounds like it's a Meetup problem, and in fact it may be, but now I am having doubts.

The problem is that I can't upload photos to a Meetup event. (This will mostly just be a problem for Meetup organizers.) When I click on "Save photo", nothing happens. No error message, nothing. It's as if the "Save Photo" button has been disabled. Firefox is my browser while I access Meetup.com, and I have the latest and greatest version of Firefox.

I contacted Meetup and they haven't been able to solve the problem; they suggested that I clear my cache and my cookies and try again, but I get the same result. HOWEVER, when I go into Microsoft Edge, I can upload photos with no problem. So I have a work-around: use Microsoft Edge to upload photos. So my question to you centers around: why does this work perfectly in Microsoft Edge, but it doesn't in the latest version of Firefox?

To test the possibility that it's a bug on my personal desktop computer, I went to the public library and tried the same experiment, with the same result. So I don't think it's problem with my personal desktop computer.

One other piece of information: the exact same thing happens (failure to update photo, that is) when I have the photo open in another application (Photoshop), even if I try to "save photo" to Meetup in Microsoft Edge. Then when I close the other application (Photoshop in this case), Microsoft Edge lets me "save photo."

I know that Firefox really doesn't want me to try to revert to a previous version, and it makes me nervous too, but I am suspecting that something in the latest Firefox version actually introduced a problem. (Or maybe triggered a Meetup bug of some sort; I still haven't located the problem.) I've been on Meetup.com for years, I've had Firefox for years, they've worked together to upload photos in the past for years.

If you want to get into the details, below, for what it is worth, is my initial question to the Meetup support people (with whom I am still in a conversation).

- - - - - - - -

I can't upload a photo for my event. In fact, I cannot upload a photo for any event at all. I deleted a couple of photos and an album because maybe our group had too many, but that didn't work. I can't even upload a photo that I had previously uploaded to a different event, so I don't think that the problem is with the photo itself.

Here's what happens. 1. Edit the draft of my meetup. 2. Click on "upload photo." The photo is 1827 x 1009 pixels, total size 63 KB. 3. I click on "Upload photo", then in "add photo" I click on "upload photo" again. I browse for the photo and select it. 4. The "crop your photo" screen appears, with the selected photo in it. It's already the size I want, so I click on "Save Photo".(Cropping doesn't help either.) 5. Nothing happens. No error message, nothing. The only think I can click on is "cancel," which takes me out to the previous screen. - - - - - -

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
