Hello, I am a bit concerned, as Firefox never before acted this way. Has this been reported? 0. Few weeks ago computer froze, after restart, bookmarks that I had made new had disappeared and old ones appeared, as if firefox reversed to previous saved setting from hour before freezing of computer.

Now, the main ones that have been happening during last week: 1. Firefox randomly downloaded (twice during last week) some random file with random letters, for example " H3jO5Ni4m.htm". It was always one file, that was a ".htm" file, and it had 0 bites. I uploaded the file to virustotal and it brought me to this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855/detection

I then googled about this specific problem with Firefox downloading a 0 byte .htm file, and it has been happening to people for last 6 months, not many cases, but some,still. Peoples comments implied that this is harmless and that it is a bug of Firefox.

2. Firefox today,about half an hour ago logged me out of most websites, not all, but most. Firefox never ever behaved this way and it happens only to Firefox, not any other browser that I own.

During last week I scanned my computer in both normal and safe mode with: Eset Online Scanner (a one time useantivirus program), Avast, Roguekiller, Malwarebytes, Mbar (Malwarebytes anti malware), and never found anything. I consider these programs most reliable, and have been using them for years.

Is it a bug of this specific version of Firefox please? I have version 105.0.1 (64-bit) and problem 1 and 2 happened since then I think.

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

Hey friends,

I'm experiencing an issue with Firefox only (Edge and Chrome are fine) with a specific site/certificate and was hoping someone had some advice.

The site in question is github.ourcompany.com, which has a certificate issued with the following:

Subject Common Name: *.github.ourcompany.com

And the following Subject Alt Names: DNS: *.github.ourcompany.com DNS: *.github DNS: github.ourcompany.com DNS: github IP: 10.x.x.x

When I browse to https://github.ourcompany.com, I get a SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN message, even though github.ourcompany.com is a valid SAN. I'm wondering if this is to do with validation rules regarding wildcard SANs, or perhaps the order of the SANs. Has anyone seen this before?

Webpages with divs and buttons that hover a consistent space of the screen like taskbars and Reddit's "back to top" button flicker white and jitter around when I try to scroll and I would like to find a quick fix if possible. I am a new user and I've only so far had to touch config settings to fix on hover UI with Twitter. Everything else is default settings and I keep getting forwarded to old bug reports and github pages for web developers when I'm trying to fix it from the user side on multiple common pages like Tumblr and StackOverflow.

I am constantly annoyed by the ever present "notification" to update Firefox to the latest version. There is no easy way to get rid of the nagging notice. PLEASE NOTE ::: I DID DOWNLOAD AND UPDATE MY PC TO THE NEWEST VERSION WHICH DID NOT LIKE AT ALL !!!!

So, I returned to the latest version I had been using and all is well. EXCEPT : I AM CONSTANTLY NAGGED TO UPDATE. WHICH I DID, DID NOT LIKE, AND DO NOT PLAN T DO IT AGAIN.

You need to add an option for user like me who have done what you asked and did not care for the result. IF YOU THINK PEOPLE WILL LEAVE, PERHAPS YOU ARE RIGHT ... IF YOU GIVE THEM THAT CHOICE. I PREFER TO SEE THE CHOICE TO KEEP WHAT i HAVE AND NOT GIVE IN TO THE LATEST WHIM. So, if your product is so good, why not let us decide to stay with the version we are using and not be nagged into a new one we will not like. If your product is as string as you think, you should be able to give the user that choice! D. CHAPMAN ANGERS, FRANCE

My wife sent a link to an Amazon product. When I clicked on it the Amazon Smile site from my desk top it came up briefly then went black. Since then, when I bring Smile up again it has different fonts (Times New Roman versus Arial/Calibri), the home page and selecting options like Wish List shows a mish-mash of sentences and images.

I tried rebooting Firefox and running the troubleshooting option, same thing. The Amazon Smile site is normal on Chrome and Edge. It is also normal with Firefox on my iPad and iPhone.

Would prefer not to uninstall/re-install Firefox on my desk top if there is another option.

I have Firefox 105.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro and I cannot import Logins and Passwords from a file. Even with the signon property to TRUE, the passwords just don't populate. Is there something else I should be doing, or is there a fix for this. I have quite a few users to migrate and creating Firefox accounts to sync passwords is not preferable with users who need a lot of hand-holding. Thanks!

This is a random error, with no specific website in question. The font display error, seems to be corrected when closing and opening the browser. It appears on specific parts of text within a website in a strange font (its always that "hand-written" font). On the example attached, it was a simple google search.

Hello,

For about a week now, Facebook Messenger on desktop (on my profile page at facebook.com) will fail to load. If I click on "See all in Messenger" it will just load indefinitely and not redirect to the new page with all the messages.

I have not installed any new add-ons and Troubleshoot Mode has the exact same issue. A week ago everything was fine. It this a known issue with the latest update?

Is there something I can do?

Please don't tell me to reset firefox. Burning your house down for a minor inconvenience is not a solution. It's as unprofessional of an advice as all those "reinstall windows" tips for absolutely every singe issue. That's not advice, just lack of knowledge.

Hi! I have an issue where my Firefox is opening multiple processes in my task manager. I am used to seeing 7, sometimes up to twelve if I have a bunch of tabs open, but for the last week it has now been spiking anywhere up to 25-30 being open in the task manager (and I will usually at the very most have 5 to 7 tabs open-TOPS!). My memory has been spiking to upwards to 30%, which is causing a slow down in my machine.

I have tried to shut down any extensions that I thought were causing the issue (Ghostery among them), but nothing changed.  I recently put Ghostery back on, and am about to try turning off Adblocker plus.  

When I looked at if I had any other hidden extensions, I saw that I have DuckDuckgo? ebay? and Bing? apparently on the extensions, but when I go into Firefox to remove them, they don't show up in the lists to turn off and on (I don't even use any of those as far as I know, so I don't know why they are even there).

I use Avast antivirus, and it hasn't indicated that there is any virus, but then again, I suppose a good virus would know the work around.

I am not really computer savvy, so perhaps I am making a mountain out of a molehill? If not, please help. This is very frustrating seeing so much memory go to Firefox!

Od dwóch dni program firefox nie ładuje na moim urządzeniu żadnych stron internetowych. Nie następuje żaden proces wczytywania, nie mam możliwości odświeżenia strony, cofnięcia ani przywrócenia, absolutnie żadna strona nie chcę się wczytać (nawet firefox.support).

Próbowałam każdej możliwej porady jaką znalazłam na waszej stornie. Wyczyściłam dane ciasteczek, dane witryn, odszukałam folder profilu i usunęłam plik parent.lock, sprawdziłam aktualizację, zaktualizowałam oprogramowanie w komputerze. Sprawdziłam w menadżeru zadań czy jakieś firefox nie działa w tle po zamknięciu, zamknęłam procesy w tle, potem ponownie uruchomiłam komputer i ciągle bez zmian. Znalazłam folder firefoxa i upewniłam się, że we właściwościach jest jako plik "tylko do odczytu" no i jeszcze dla pewności sprawdziłam poprawność konfiguracji daty, godziny i strefy czasowej w systemie operacyjnym, żeby sprawdzić czy przeglądarka nie ma problemów z weryfikacją.

Żadne z powyższych działań nie przyniosło najmniejszych efektów. Załączam screen obrazujący jedyne co wyświetla przeglądarka
