Hi,

I know you have all seen this question before but none of the answers I have found work for me. My site loads perfectly fine in other browser, just not Firefox.

I have a local website with a style sheet that is saved in the same folder:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />

I have defined the character sets in the HTML and CSS documents:

HTML = CSS = @charset "UTF-8";

I have both the latest updates for Chrome, IE and Firefox as of today.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Skipping to the middle of a streaming audio track on various sites causes stuttering and glitchy audio

Hello,

Please reference this support thread on SoundCloud's tech support forums. The thread contains all pertinent information, including videos of the problem and console screenshots made by myself and others. https://www.soundcloudcommunity.com/soundcloud/topics/skipping-to-the-middle-of-a-track-causes-stuttering-and-glitchy-audio-chrome-firefox

In a nutshell, when you try to skip forward during streaming audio, there is a buffering/stuttering issue that prevents proper playback of the track. This problem is confirmed on SoundCloud and Traxsource, and other people in the support thread have mentioned Mixcloud and other streaming sites. In other words, this is not the fault of one particular streaming service or another.

The problem does not occur in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, or Chrome. Well, to clarify, when the problem was posted on the SoundCloud support forums, Chrome was having the same issue. However, they did a version push a few days ago, which fixed it.

Here is my original post on SoundCloud support (minus erroneous information about Chrome), which has pertinent details. Note that we upgraded both Flash and Firefox recently, so although I mention previous versions in my original post, everyone involved has since updated their browsers and Flash.

As of now, the only fix for the issue is to roll back to Firefox 40.0.2. Thanks for any and all help =)

Matt

Original Message===========

Skipping to the middle of a track causes stuttering and glitchy audio (Firefox).

I am running Windows 10 Pro.

There seems to be a caching issue affecting playback - I started noticing this problem three or four days ago. Previously, I could skip through my stream at will, going straight to the middle of tracks or mixes to listen to a few seconds, and determine if I liked the track. Now, I cannot do that on Firefox 41.0.1. The problem is merely annoying on songs that are 3 or 4 minutes in length, as I must let them "cache" for perhaps ten seconds before skipping around. Unfortunately, the problem is a game-breaker on mixes that are, for example, 90 minutes long. If I skip to a point directly in the middle of the mix, nothing happens. The playback button alternates between the "Play" symbol, and the "Caching" symbol ("..."), and if audio does resume, it is glitchy and consists of different parts of the track being played back at once.

I've eliminated my internet connection as a source of the problem by loading up Edge. In Edge 20.10240.16384, the problem does not exist. I can scroll down to any 2-hour mix in my feed, click on the middle of it, and the audio starts right up. No caching, no stuttering or glitching.

I rolled back Flash to version 18 to see if it fixed the problem in Firefox, but it did not. The problem persisted, so I re-upgraded back to Flash 19.

I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

Hi,

About a month ago I spent a couple of hours clearing out my bookmarks on Firefox. I deleted at least a couple of hundred bookmarks - duplicates and no longer relevant. Just now all of my deleted bookmarks have reappeared on my list and bookmarks toolbar. How can I undo it?

This isn't the first time this has happened but the first time I have lost a large amount of work to it.

Also, I noticed a couple of days ago that my Firefox for Android hadn't tried to sync since August so I told it to sync and it worked fine when triggered manually. Is that possibly related?

Thanks!

I have tried every way possible to fix this error none of the website work the only one that does is yahoo and they all say the same error

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

However I have found an article that has fixed it for me.

It turns out that during the upgrade to Windows 10 my Power settings were changed from balanced to stable. I reset the power saver settings back to Balanced (recommended) and now Firefox is back to it's original speed.

My touchpad scroll will not work in Firefox. It works fine with IE and all other apps (Windows 10).

If it were a driver issue - I think it would not work in all the other applications, but it works fine everywhere (except Firefox)

I can get it to work for a short time, if I uninstall the Touchpad (in the device manager) , re-start, re-installs.

Again, hard to believe it would be a driver issue - works fine in all apps, except Firefox...

Hello, I have a problem with certificate of this web page : http://www.sps-jia.cz/moodle/ When I tried to log in, it said that "connection is untrusted", but that is normal and i know it is secure. However, I'm incredibly dumb and accidentally have clicked on the button that added it as an untrusted connection. So immediately, I've started searching trough the Firefox setting, but I've discovered nothing that could help me. So I googled my problem, and most of the said that renaming/moving the cert8.db fire from the profile folder would help, but it didn't. The weirdest thing is that I can't access the website on other browsers (IE/Edge). I thing that it's somewhere in Windows. Plx halp Thanks

I have a computer with Windows 10. For about two to three months from now, every so often, my computer/windows crashes when I open or save a PDF file on Firefox, which is extremely upsetting. I just found out some days ago that Firefox doesn't use anymore the adobe reader plugin, but uses instead its own built-in PDF viewer. When I changed the setting to use the external adobe reader software to open and/or download pdf files, it seems that my computer doesn't crashes anymore. So my questions are: why the bult-in PDF viewer makes windows 10 crash? Will that problem be fixed, and when? and lastly, why does Firefox forces to use its own built-in PDF viewer when it can't function correctly with windows 10? This have been the more upsetting problem I have had with my computer for a long time!

Hello,

I've tried to make Firefox (version 43.0.1) my default browser on Windows10 (version 1511 Build 150586.36), but the "default apps" page in the control centre doesn't give me any options beside Microsoft Edge and looking for an app in the store. Searching the store does not yield any results for Firefox either.

I have been using Windows 10 for some months now, and always had Firefox as the default; however, since an update about a week ago, the option simply vanished.

FIrefox works fine otherwise, but opening links from mails or documents automatically uses Edge without giving me any other option.

Thanks for any help, and happy holidays.
