I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

I need to know where I can find the Content Process Limiting Setting in Firefox, it's gone, or is not where it is said to be located. This is the instruction I found. "uncheck the Use recommended performance settings checkbox to enable some hidden settings. One of those settings is the Content process limit setting, which can be set to a number between 1 and 8"

Its using up to much memory on my already slow processor.  

Please help me stop the extra processes.

This isn't a constant issue for me, but occasionally the browser will suddenly break such that when I switch tabs, nothing actually updates until I do something like restore/maximise the window. I can still interact with the page itself, but whether using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts, changing, opening, or closing tabs, or even typing in the navigation bar, won't do anything until I resize the window again. I haven't been able to figure out any pattern to when this state triggers, but after it does, it doesn't clear up without closing and reopening the browser. I have recorded a video showing this behavior but I am unable to upload it here, and still images would not properly convey the issue.

Hello everyone :)

I would like Firefox to use my virtual webcam stream (Nvidia broadcast) by default instead of the hardware webcam (logitech brio)

I found where to control the site permissions for the microphone, the webcam, but unfortunately, it does not allow you to choose the default stream

I use Firefox to do teleconsultation as a doctor, and the web interface that I use always goes to the hardware webcam instead of using Nvidia broadcast which would allow me to hide the background

Is there a way to tell Firefox, or Windows 10, to never broadcast the hardware stream but to always use the virtual stream?

Thank you so much !

For probably years now, I have this problem on my laptop. WhatsApp Web can't load any stickers - not that I send, receive or any in my drawer.

I can't understand why it's specifically WhatsApp and specifically the stickers, but I tried to fix it: - I logged off and on to WhatsApp Web, didn't help. - I disabled then removed all extensions, didn't help. - I've removed all profile data, didn't help. - I reinstalled Firefox after wiping the AppData folder, didn't help.

This problem has persisted over updates and doesn't happen in Chrome - stickers download there just fine. It also doesn't happen on any other computer I use with Firefox.

I tried to investigate the cause of the problem. First off, the sticker HTTP request on the network tab fails with the weird error status NS_ERROR_INTERCEPTION_FAILED or NS_BINDING_ABORTED (both appear). The console says the following:

Failed to load ‘https://mmg.whatsapp.net/v/t62.15575-24/31187942_602693368536193_4171257086940206138_n.enc?ccb=11-4&oh=01_AdSo-95lTiTT9NthZMidBB00c8tI8PlEuBlxvoIsC9rkuA&oe=6558CC66&_nc_sid=000000&hash=PDQ3jJY4Svmj3ZJIIkyTzdyKEeyiyBLg64CuZRuaEIM%3D&mode=auto&mms-type=sticker&__wa-mms=’. A ServiceWorker passed a promise to FetchEvent.respondWith() that rejected with ‘TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.’.

(Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null).

I thought it was a CORS thing, but it doesn't seem to actually be the reason - after googling, "CORS request did not succeed" just seems to be a failed request and unrelated to CORS. I ran Wireshark to sniff the request, and what I found was that Firefox sends an OPTIONS request (even though it doesn't log it in the Network tab), the OPTIONS request is answered with a 200 OK, and then this error occurs.

This convinces me that this is an internal problem with Firefox or with some other program on my computer that interferes specifically with Firefox. Any ideas as to what could be the issue? I'll be happy to supply more logs if needed.

Hello. Firefox browser. Windows 11 interface is freezing. Completely randomly. And exactly when using Firefox. The sound works at the same time. Only a complete forced shutdown of the PC helps. The keyboard does not respond, the pointer moves but nothing is pressed.

How can I be? What log to send? Firefox crashes have not been.

I am trying to use a CAC/PIV reader to authenticate and access a Microsoft OWA site. This process works fine on both Chrome and Safari but I'd prefer to use Firefox. So far, I've installed and loaded the Keychain-PKCS11 library and restarted the browser. When I start the browser--before trying to go to any page--I get this error:

"Please authenticate to the token “[TOKEN NAME REDACTED]”. How to do so depends on the token (for example, using a fingerprint reader or entering a code with a keypad)."

When I go to the log-in page and select the "login with CAC" option, Firefox returns a certificate-not-found error.

Hi ! J'utilise firefox depuis très longtemps sans me rendre compte qu'il connaissait ma position, et n'ai pas de problème avec ça. C'est quand j'ai voulu lui dire que j'habitais aux États-Unis pour changer la langue et le type de résultats (correspondant à ce dont j'ai besoin, mes études et recherches) que je me suis retrouvé coincé ; il ne m'affichait que mon adresse, toujours des résultats en français et aucun résultat pertinent malgré ma langue anglaise. Que faire ?

Merci par avance, Jacques.
