Mu weather channel will no load on my Mac's front page since yesterday. I receive the following after it tries to load for about a minute. "Sorry! We are temporarily unable to load the content. Please refresh or try again later." Is this a Firefox or yahoo problem? How do I get it back?

Hello, I have used Firefox for years without any problems with my MacBook. Now, some weeks ago, occasionally my browser freezes during loading of websites and it was also no longer possible to close the browser at normal way. I had to use the the Mac option 'close immediately' (sofort beenden). I could work with other programs and also with the Safari browser quite normal but I could no longer shut down my computer. The only possibility to get a shut down was to press the on/off button for several seconds. This behavior of Firefox is now reproducible. Sometimes I can open several websites without problems before Firefox freezes, sometimes it freezes immediately after starting Firefox. In all these cases I had to close Firefox by the 'sofort beenden' option and I could no longer shut down my computer the normal way. No problems at all if I don't use Firefox and use the Safari browser instead. I use the latest version of Firefox (82.0.3) and Mac OS Catalina (10.15.7). I have already deinstalled Firefox and reinstalled it after a new download from the Mozilla website but got no change of this behavior. I run 'Malwarebytes' and scanned the computer with the AVG antivirus software and both didn't show any deficiencies . Perhaps somebody is able to help me, many thanks for this.

Firefox has been having this on-again, off again problem with printing pages from the Net. It was doing this a couple of months ago for about a month (!!!) and then evidently fixed itself long after I tried all the Troubleshooting suggestions ( re-booting Firefox, emptying the cache, going into Firefox's print.print command center to try to fix things), none of which worked. And now it's doing it again. And yes, I've already tried all the Troubleshooting suggestions all over again, and nothing from any of that is working. Now, I use Amazon and PayPal a lot, so this is especially aggravating. Here is what is happening:

 On a webpage, I'll tap the Print icon on the page. I then have to wait about 1 minute and 30 seconds for the pop-up Print command window to appear. After tapping the Print button on the pop-up window, I then have to wait another 30 seconds for the printer to finally get the message to start printing. It does this every single time I want to print anything, and it doesn't seem to matter what internet page I'm on.
 It's not the printer (A Brother MFC-J485DW). I've tried using another browser for some of this and the other browser (Safari, in this case) works fine with the print commands and there's no delay.
Is it my operating system?  MacOS Sierra 10.12.6.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm doing some work with SVGs and hit a problem with tspan elements returning 0 for getNumberOfChars().

I have searched Bugzilla and came up with an issue closed as fixed some 15 years ago (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=339039) which includes a test case (reproduced below).

In Firefox, this now reports 0 for all 4 tspans, however in Chrome and IE it reports 4 for all tspans which is what I would expect.

Is there some nuance I'm missing or is this a regression?

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" onload="window.setTimeout('delay()', 1000);"> <script></script> <text fill="black" transform="translate(0,20)"> <tspan id="t1">Test</tspan> <tspan id="t2">Test</tspan> <tspan id="t3">Test</tspan> <tspan id="t4">Test</tspan> </text> </svg>

Hi all,

When the Firefox titlebar is disabled, along with the upper monitor taskbar, a white bar appears in the above monitor when Firefox is fullscreened. Looks like some sort of scaling issue, tried disabing/enabling everything in compatibility tab as suggested with similar errors, reintalled drivers, changed aspect ratio etc.

Both monitors are plugged in via Displayport, above monitor is 1080p below is 1440p.

2 screenshots attached, 2nd shows if you fullscreen by dragging into border boundary.

Windows version 19042.630, Nvidia drivers latest.

Only remedy so far seems to be to enable the titlebar in Firefox or have a taskbar on the upper monitor, both are less than ideal.

Cheers

I just updated my iMac 27" 2017 from catalina to big sur and now firefox ( 83.0) constantly crashes the OS and forces reboot. I have confirmed it is Firefox issue by using Safari and Chrome for multiple days now and had no issues. I did a firefox refresh, reinstalled fresh add-ins (flag fox, no script) and still crashes. I disabled and then removed all add-ins and still have the issue. Just having firefox open results in reboot over night.

Windows 7.

Firefox and only he is seen in the active use of the lsass process. If you open an empty firefox browser with no tabs or only settings tabs, then the lsass process does not consume anything. However, if you open any tab with the Internet, the lsass process begins to consume from 1 to 6 percent of the processor, for a while. On some pages there is more, on others less, it happens that it constantly consumes 4+, sometimes it sags a little to 1-2. However, any tab opening and internet manipulation leads to this result - lsass consumes CPU resources. Does not depend on the presence of add-ons, I put the regular and portable versions 81 82 83.

This behavior of the lsass process does not occur in any other browser that I have been able to install. Be it chrome, opera, avant, waterfox tor browser, vivaldi, and others. On another computer completely zero, this process is also used, although a little faster, but also every time the page is opened, there is a load on the processor from lsass.

After Firefox updated to version 83.0 (64bit), my Spectrum Live TV does not work. The page loads, but the TV will not play and I get an error message from the Guide. It was working the day before on the previous version, and still works fine using Chrome and Edge. Does anyone know what might have caused the issue from the new version.

Whenever I use Bing to search for something the results page loads twice. Additionally, if I click the "Back" button, it simply reloads the results page again putting me right back where I started. This has broken history navigation before if I search multiple times on Bing resulting in two of each search in the "Back" button drop down because when I navigate to a previous search it loads twice preventing me from using the "Forward" button to move to a later search. This is still happening with Firefox running in Safe Mode.

Since I installed Firefox 82 (on Mac OS 10.14) when I'm filling in an online form FF jumps away from the page and brings up an error message telling me that the form is no longer available. Huh? I can use the "Try again" button and it takes me back to the form, but might have lost some of my entries. This happened several times when I was entering data for a bank transfer and has just happened again when I was ordering something online. I've now installed FF 83 but have the same problem. I use only 2 extensions: 1 Password and Privacy Pass. Thank you in anticipation of helping me sort this out.

Hi, I recently updated to FF 83.0 and if I open Youtube then play a video my RAM usage sits around 900mb.

If I minimize Firefox or open a new tab, the tab with YouTube playing will start climbing in RAM usage. It will go up to 7.5 GB RAM used and it won't free it up.

I downgraded to FF 82.0.2 and it goes away with same addons. It will sit around the 900mb in this version like it always used to. This only started with the release of FF 83.0

I want to use the new FF version for security, but not being able to play any YouTube videos is bad.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Been watching streams for a while. Twitch.TV works perfectly well, Piczel.TV is alright too. I do however have constant issues with any kind of live stream when using Picarto.TV- It seems like the stream just doesn't want to load for long- it will work for a little but and then start an endless buffering cycle which can only be broken by refreshing the entire website, rinse and repeat. I tried cleaning my cookies once which didn't help. Using Firefox's installer to run a "fix" didn't help either, and a fresh install *did* work, but only for a little bit before it started happening again. The option in Picarto to switch the HLS player tech to mp4 doesn't work. Any advice?

Guten Abend, ich habe ein Problem beim FireFox-Browser auf einem Amazon Tablett. Es wäre schön, wenn Sie mir Hinweise zur Fehlerbeseitigung geben könnten. Danke. Meine Frau und ich nutzen seit ca. 2 Jahren das oben genannte Tablett 'fire HD 10' von Amazon. Auf dem Tablett haben wir die FireFox App installiert. Sie funktionierte bis gestern ohne Probleme. Als wir das Tablet heute Abend wieder mit FireFox benutzen wollten bekamen wir die Absturz-Anzeige (wie im Bild). Als Erste Massnahme habe ich den Cash der FireFox App gelöscht. Dann das Tablett nach aktueller Software suchen lassen und die Software des Amazone-Tablett anschlissend aktualisiert. Der Fehler blieb. Abschließend habe ich dann noch die FireFox App deinstalliert sowie aktuell aus dem PlayStore von Google runter geladen und installiert. Allerdings bleibt der Fehler weiterhin bestehen.

Good evening, I have a problem with the FireFox browser on an Amazon tablet. It would be nice if you could give me some troubleshooting tips. Thank you. My wife and I have been using the above mentioned tablet fire HD 10 from Amazon for about 2 years. We installed the FireFox app on the tablet. It worked without any problems until yesterday. When we wanted to use the tablet with FireFox again this evening, we got the crash display (as in the picture). As a first measure, I deleted the FireFox app's cash. Then let the tablet search for the latest software and then update the software of the Amazone tablet. The mistake remained. Finally, I uninstalled the FireFox app and downloaded it from the Google PlayStore and installed it. However, the error persists.
