Starting sometime recently, dropdown menus such as the main menu and the library menu give a white rectangle the size of the menu. Restarting in safe mode does not help. Using a new, empty profile does help. Exiting, deleting my profile cache directory, and restarting does not help.

This is likely related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288037 but that person was helped by deleting the cache directory.

I would prefer not to have to redo all my customizations.

Some solid colours on certain webpages do not appear whilst on Firefox. The background will show up instead of the colour the image should be. I have tried to delete the cookies and cache on Firefox as well as trying Firefox in troubleshoot mode to no avail. Whilst writing this question, I have also discovered that taking a screenshot of the issue shows how the image should look as opposed to what the screen shows. Attached are some images of the issues I am facing, two images are of what appears on the screen and one image is the screenshot from the webpage which is what should have been shown. Apologies for some of the photos, I had to take a photo of the screen with my phone to show the issue. I have also closed the browser multiple times and restarted my computer, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm on a Mac, running Catalina, with 64 GBs of RAM, and Firefox is using about 20+ GBs of RAM, and very high CPU usage. I keep trying new updated versions, hoping this will no longer be an issue, but it persists. Is there anything I can really do, to tamper it down?

I tried opening FF in safe mode, only to find several windows with several tabs on each GONE! Why should troubleshooting issues only make me more frustrated and ready to can this browser forever? Help should be help, not making things worse...

An issue I am running into with the latest Firefox is that when connected to an external display (4K) the screen starts flickering really bad when scrolling in Firefox for MacOS.

Safari does not, other programs do not, only Firefox!

Anyone having similar issues or knowing a solution? It is really annoying! Thanks in advance!

Why are there ten to fifteen background processes running slowing and freezing my computer? I have to go to the task manager and shut most down, hoping I don't hit the one that closes my page. Doesn't matter if I have one tab open or many. I'm ready to quit using Firefox. Every update gets worse. Seems like more and more processes keep building. Sometimes there are so many background processes running I can't count them. Firefox use to run like a dream. Now it's like a giant weight clogging up the gears.

Hi all,

I am running the latest version of FF and Win 10 64 bit. When I access our local DIY store, bunnings.com.au, I get an error message "some error occurred". Pressing F5 gets me to the site. This does not occur on Chrome, Edge or another PC with the same versions of FF and Win 10.

Running FF in troubleshoot mode does not resolve the issue, neither does clearing cache.

However, if I open google.com.au and search for bunnings, then click on the link in the result, I do not get the error.

Does any body have any ideas? AFAIK, it started when Bunnings moved to a new website design.

Regards,

Steve

My Firefox can't play any video on any websites. Youtube video keeps on buffering forever and I can't click on the play button. But preview images still shows up when I hover the mouse over video bar. This happened after I updated to latest FF version

I've tried every solutions provided by Mozilla Support: clear caches, disable extensions, uncheck hardware acceleration,.... you name it I've tried it all. Other browsers are just fine, but since FF is my main browser for work I don't want to switch to another one just for music or video.

Thank you for your support.

Hi, I have never used firefox console, and definitely don't want it to be opening automatically on firefox (89. windows 10 64 bit) start. How do I stop it from doing this please? Behaviour started a few months ago. Behaviour doesn't happen in troubleshoot mode, but still happens in normal mode with privacy extensions disabled.

Hoping screenshot not necessary, as when I tried to attach to this post, error message popped up from Firefox saying it was too big.

Thank you

Some weeks ago I start notice, that in Mozila Firefox all videos start have noticeable horizontal line. Later I found that this line appear always on any image ( not only video) when I scroll down any page. As I understand, something wrong with Vertical Synchronization on Mozila browser ( I dont have that problems when use other browser or watch video in video players). I don't have that problem when moving all Mozila window with mouse over windows desktop. I tried do some fixes that I found in internet, but it didn't help (set vertical synchroimpuls in nvidia control panel ).

Can anyone suggest, how I can fix that problem?

My Firefox client will not play any embedded videos on any web sites or stream content from sites such as Twitch. Strangely, the only site that will play videos is Youtube.

I've tried disabling all extensions (I only have two - Ad Block and Better Twitch TV), disabling hardware acceleration, clearing my cache and cookies, and using troubleshooting mode. None of those solve the issue.

Hello,

after an update up to Firefox 89.0 (64bit) on my elementaryOS 5.1.7 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I've got a grey-colored rectangle in the upper part of my window that overlays all elements of websites (cf. attached screenshot), however I still could pass via hyperlinks if there are any under the rectangle. It is very light grey in light mode and dark grey in dark mode.

I've tried following steps according to possible solutions found in the Internet : - launch Firefox in safe mode (the rectangle disappears) - make sure the default theme is used - turn on/off the hardware acceleration - update or disable and delete all add-ons and plug-ins (rectangle still present in normal mode) - delete and reinstall Firefox with wiping all its files on the local machine (including /home/user/.mozilla and /etc/firefox* folders) - delete again and install the flatpak version


Nothing of the above helps except of the safe mode. As I have tried already to delete add-ons and plug-ins, what else can I disable to try to solve the issue in normal mode ?

I would appreciate your help as this is the only browser that I (want to) use on a daily basis. Thanks in advance!

I use this workaround to fix tearing on my mediacenter powered by a intel baytrail hardware.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Firefox/Tweaks#Enable_Legacy_OpenGL_compositor

until v88, it was working fine.

With v89, the setting layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true has no effect. The "about:support" page reports Compositing: webrender (software) whatever the value true or false.

I had to downgrade to v88.
