How to kill hung download?

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.

Hello,

When I open my application in Firefox, form elements dissapear, I see onlu blank page, but I have found that at the end of the <div> which displays form elements, I found the attribute <div *my_form_goes_here* style="visibility: hidden !important;"</div> at DOM. I wonder why this is happening and is it the fault of Mozilla or a bug on the frontend side of my application. But at the other browsers this problem do not appear. I tried to open the form in safe mode, incognito, no add-ons, tried to create a new Firefox account, tried without logging in, but none of these options gave the expected result - the tab disappears after I refresh the page. I am asking for help.

Hi,

I'm having a problem with Firefox Sync. When I started Firefox Sync it said disconnected, I logged in, exited the browser and reopened the browser and Firefox Sync was still working.

But when I shutdown, or restart the operating system, Firefox Sync gives an error that it has been disconnected, forcing me to log in again.

I have tried uninstalling, deleting all profiles in the %appdata% folder of the operating system and reinstalling but still the same error.

Hope someone will help me! Thank you!

YouTube content filtering

When I enter YouTube and I try to see comments written to me, it says "'content filtering' has hidden the discussions on this channel". When I try to click on the button to cancel the filtering, it tells me that it cannot be canceled because the filtering is from the network administrator. "Content filtering Enabled by the network administrator to help filter videos that may contain adult content only." It blocks me from any discussion even if it doesn't contain adult content. I switch browsers, open Chrome, and there is no content filtering by the network administrator, but it does show me the discussion that Firefox blocked. Which means the ISP doesn't block me and neither does any other manager except the Firefox browser. I don't have another network administrator, I surf on a private network at home. You need to report the problem to Firefox and they will take care of it.

Thanks.

So I can't believe Firefox has been around this long and still hasn't made a tab preview like the one on the new google chrome update. I can't even find an add-on anywhere. So please devs make this a feature. I know that there is an option to see the preview of each tab in the windows taskbar but that is just messy when there are a lot of open tabs because you can't just click on the open window and jump right into you left off you have to look through each and every open tab to find the right one. IMO this seems like a great add-on considering other browsers already have their own version of this. Below is the Preview tab that firefox already has and it just sucks imo.

when taking part in a VA video conference, I could get pictures but no sound. (other browsers - edge & chrome- gave me only sound and pictures). I get sound from videos, You Tube, Netflix, etc., but nothing when on the VA video conferencing site. I am using Windows 10 on an HP desktop computer. I even turned off my virus protection to make sure it was not interfering (suggested by VA video conferencing help contact) but that did not help either. Since VA is going to a lot of video conferencing this is creating a real problem. (Checking the settings for the webcam (Logi pro scan) all showed that it was functioning properly. Sound comes in on all other sites using Fire Fox.
