Starting from Firefox 88, and still in Firefox 89, the browser became exceedingly slow. Typing one line of text has a 4-5 seconds delay, and loading pages is even slower. I tried a new start, new user, refresh, etc., without success. Firefox 87 works fine on the same computer but 88 and 89 are annoyingly slow.

I run Firefox on Linux 4.19.0-16-amd64 with Debian 10, windowmanager Xfwm4, displaymanager lightdm

Any help?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hi So my problem started a few days ago i don't remember exactly when. The graphs on the binance exchange site have stopped updating for me on Firefox. I mean when i load the page with the graph in it the graph is static and i have to keep refreshing the entire page to see changes in the graph. I should mention that the graphs on a different site that i use work fine and display the prices in real time.

I also had microsoft edge and the same problem happens there too but today i installed chrome and the problem in NOT present there. So the site and graphs update and work properly in chrome but not in Firefox or edge. I prefer to use Firefox for everything!

-I tried Firefox safe mode and the problem is still there. -I also made a new Firefox profile and the problem is still there. -Finally i even refreshed Firefox but even that didnt fix the problem. I should mention that i have Firefox sync enabled so after i refreshed Firefox it automatically installed back all my addons (and other settings?) so even though it is refreshed it looks and behaves exactly like before i don't know if that "cancels" the effects of the refresh.

I am running win10 and my antivirus is kaspersky. I had Kaspesky on "pause protection" while i was troubleshooting but that didnt help either. I hope i managed to explain everything because i find it hard to express my self in English. If you need me to clarify anything let me know. I hope someone can help me with this because I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance Kiri

I have noticed previous reports of https only not working. I am running https only mode on a mac version 89, sha256:433d54fe4ecc8d3c2dfc562f7bda007bd88c918ffc2ad85ae60e564e61c0067d. while configuring anetwork device that doesn't support https I realized that it allowed http. FF was configured for https only and should of provided a message at the very least but it continued to configure the non https.

This is a critical fault as it clear says in the configuration https only. See the screen capture enclosed

I've been using global mouse gestures to control firefox externally via marionette, and I found that after upgrading from 87 to 88, many pages don't log in properly (like google). So I stopped updating. Recently I started to feel anxious and I looked for the reason. I found that it was because the "dom.webdriver.enabled" parameter was removed, from here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/67323487/selenium-w-firefox-88-changes-to-navigator-webdriver

I would like to ask for a follow-up solution after this parameter has been removed. Is there a new parameter to replace it? Is there another way to fix it and make the page login properly? Or does mozilla consider it normal to not be able to log in and forbid the use of marionette invisibly?

I would like to know the exact answer, thanks.

I run firefox on Linux, Debian 10. Firefox 88 and 89 are astonishingly slow. It takes some seconds for keystrokes to get through and also the screen update, etc. are slower than usual. I tried new user, refresh, clean start, without success. Firefox 87, however, works normal, with instantaneous response and quick refresh. Any help? M. Natiello

I can't seem to install vsn 89. I have vsn 87.0 currently and Netflix won't run without an upgrade. Also, Amazon Prime requires Widevine, which requires a FF upgrade, so I need to upgrade. The best I have been able to do is download the tar file and run Extract on it. According to the file viewer, the latest version of FF is loaded, but when I run the program, it's still v. 87, not 89. The simplest method given is to open the 'About Mozilla Firefox' window and the downloader will run. But there is no downloader running when I do that. I would really appreciate it if someone would supply instructions that actually work.

BTW: I've looked for them, and I don't find the 'required' library items. But if these are truly required and I don't have them, how has FF been running at all these past months? I concluded that either they are installed but I couldn't find them, or they aren't really required at all. I've also tried Flatpack and it doesn't work either.

I want to use the Windows 10 multiple desktop feature so that I can have different applications running on each desktop. But when I have Firefox running on any desktop it always appears on all the others as well. If I have Edge running it will only appear on the desktop on which it is launched or subsequently psotioned.

How can I fix this for Firefox?

Hello

Suddenly, all the favicons for my bookmarks are lost. Maybe it's because of a HP Cleaning tool.

However: Why doesn't Firefox "reload" the favicons when I open the bookmarks? Can I force the favicons to be re-loaded?

I am thankful for any help. Thanks already in advance for all the very nice supporters here!
