Firefox doesn't run Speedtest program at same speed as Chrome. I noticed that recently Speedtest is not reporting accurately when run on Firefox but reports correctly on Chrome or Edge or my phone for that matter. I have tried in troubleshooting mode and have refreshed Firefox. I have a 200 Mbps connection. I am connected to my router via Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6E AX210 160MHz.

Please see attached screen shots.

Is there any way to get tab names listed on troubleshooting info of anykind? I don't think you can do anything with windows task-manager but can anything be done with FF internal task-manager? I'm not a programmer so trying to make sense out of what I read, I hate to say but I have no clue :( what im reading most of the time. And when im trying to track it down to a particular tab it is impossible! As far as I can tell, it doesn't even show most of my tabs. Its bad enough when the 2 task-managers show different info. Amazon Prime Video website has major issues, memory (like taking up GB's of memory) and freezing while it sorts out the memory, upto several minutes if FF doesn't crash. If I close the tab with most memory sometimes it closes the Prime tab and FF goes on, other times I don't know what it closes and the whole browser shuts down. I run Nightly and is kept up to date.

In About:Config there are several settings for "smoothScroll.msdPhysics", which is disabled by default. Can someone here explain for what situations this set of preferences is intended to be used? I've been unable to find only very sketchy documentation for it, and I have looked a lot.

1. Is its purpose only for touch screens, or does it also have benefits for normal desktops & laptops?

2. Does it function independently of whether or not smooth scrolling is enabled in About:Preferences?

3. There are three About:Config settings for msdPhysics springs (motionBeginSpringConstant, regularSpringConstant, and slowdownSpringConstant). What effects do each of these have as the mouse is moved or the mouse wheel is rolled or clicked? And how do their settings work (e.g. time?, lines?, pixels?)?

Howdy

A sequence of events: -Updated to firefox 109 -All sites started loading super slowly. Refresh didnt work. Reset didnt work. Troubleshoot/safe mode had the same issue. Full uninstall/reinstall didn't work. Pages taking in excess of 1 min to load, when Edge loads just fine -Tried to run firefox profiler to get a handle on what's going on. -Profiler crashes firefox after recording is ended -On restarting firefox all extensions and theme were missing from toolbar and the about:addons page -Go to reinstall them. Prior extensions (uBlock and Stylus) are apparently already installed??? -Remove addons, page now has option to install, and reinstall -Still not showing in about:addons or in the toolbar, but once again back to only having the option to remove -Install firefox nightly instead -Same problem -Attempt to reinstall theme. Same problem: apparently already installed, very much not present -Signed out to see if it was some funky problem with my account post-crash. Nope. Can't use extensions when I'm not signed in, either.

Windows 10 home 19044.2486. Happening on both regular firefox 109.0 and firefox nightly 111.0a1

After updating to v109, tabs just keep crashing. Tried a YT tip, entering 'about:config' changing "browser.tabs.remote.autostart" to 'false', but didn't work. Tried another tip, changing "sandbox.cubeb" to 'false' and "security.sandbox.content.level" to '0', but didn't work either. Out of ideas, so any help would be highly appreciated.

For some reason whenever I try and move a tab to a different location, the animation is quite chopping and the tab takes about half a second to move to where I've dragged my mouse. If i click on the tab and very slowly move it there's no lag at all.

Troubleshooting I've attempted: Updated Firefox Refreshed Updated my drivers Launched in troubleshoot mode Removed all add-ons Tried Beta, Nightly and Dev Edition Uninstalled firefox and removed all appdata Ran in compatibility mode and as admin Looked at task monitor (Firefox and Windows) Ran a malware and virus scan Factory reset my pc

This issue is only occurring on my desktop, and not my laptop. It seems like it may be a hardware issue as factory resetting my pc didn't fix it.

My specs are: Windows 10 Home 22H2 CPU: i7-7700 GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme 8gb Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4, 2133MHz Storage: Samsung 980 PRO M.2

Hi, I tried to enable 2FA with 3 different apps (Google auth, Duo Mobile and Authy 2) but every time I write the auth code the form show the error in the annex.

I noticed that the first time I insert the auth code in the box the browser send a POST req always catching up the response success:true, if I type another code without refreshing the page the browser doesn't send any req.

Browser is updated to the latest version [Version 111.0a1 (2023-01-19) (64-bit)]

Hi,

I use Firefox on my laptop and attend a small university. The university utilizes Google's Gmail organizations to give us all .edu email addresses. There's also a "single-sign-on" feature that you have to login through to access some other university sites, such as the Moodle page (course page).

Around 6 months ago Firefox was no longer to able to access the course page, Moodle. It was still able to access Gmail and other pages. Other browsers and other computers using Firefox could still access Moodle. The problem became more severe and Firefox on my laptop was no longer able to access any sites which needed to use my university Gmail account or any that utilized the single-sign-on feature. Again, other browsers and other computers on the same network running Firefox were able to access the sites no problem.

The error page I would receive on my laptop: "Error code: SEC_ERROR_PKCS11_GENERAL_ERROR"

At the same time this started to occur, I noticed on Microsoft Edge that the university sites would request a certificate from me when it hadn't previously. Unsure if that's related, but I tried resetting the certificate information in Firefox, the tried using all three certificates available and none worked.

I'm not sure what's changed, but now when I try to access any university page I simply get a "secure connection failed" message. All other browsers can access the page, and Firefox still works on other computers all on the same internet connection.

Not sure what do to at this point.
