If I use autoplay, Firefox crashes, I shut autoplay off and can't play any video clips on any sites...CATCH22

I have auto update and installation checked. I have very few sites where ABP allows ads. I have Bitdefender for antivirus. I have reset Firefox at least 5 times this past 6 weeks. This has gotten old. I have tried starting without the Add-ons, but what's the sense of having Add-ons available then? If I try to use Firefox with the autoplay feature for videos on sites like NFL.com or NASCAR.com, Firefox will in short time crash (Firefox is not responding), ..usually when I have more than 2 tabs open, but has done it with a singular tab open. As a matter of fact, it will sometimes crash before loading the page. If I use FIrefox with autoplay disabled, I can't even prompt the video to play. It doesn't even show up in the play section when prompted. So what's the sense of that? After resetting Firefox, I fail to understand why in the most viewed panel, why my most viewed aren't there after each reset? Also, why doesn't it populate my most viewed consistently? That being, if I go to the same sites all the time, why don't they show as most viewed? I get sites showing up I've only been to once in a month, instead of multiple times in a day. My final thing...why does Edge keep prompting me to install it while using Firefox? I have Edge already installed when Firefox crashes and it has a fresh install from just 2 weeks ago. But I still get these annoying notifications. I know this is long, but this is what happens when you try diligently to do as the instructions show in the Help section multiple times...only to come to the same conclusion. Can someone please help?

I've created a new profile and it doesn't help. The site I'm trying to access is secured by a TLS Certificate. I have other things like AdBlock Plus and LastPass installed. I've rearranged the toolbar to my own preferences.

Resetting undoes most of my settings. There is a "TRY AGAIN" button that circumvents the issue. This is very annoying.

ALONE of all the Browsers I have (FIREFOX 72.0.2, CHROME 79.0.3945.130, INTERNET EXPLORER 11.592.18362,0, and EDGE 44.18362.449.0), FireFox fails to access this web-site. Something's wrong with FireFox?

Installed Firefox 75 and then 76 on Windows 7 embedded (32 bit) on a thin-client. No errors. When I press the letter "t" on the keyboard it refreshes the page. I have tried this on several input fields on this specific webpage and it has the same outcome. This only happens if I use a lowercase t -- shift-t and T (using caps-lock) does not refresh.

This occurs on a specific page on my internal network. I reproduced this on 3 computers running the same versions of everything. Reinstalled windows and Firefox and same problem.

Another Windows 7 computer running Firefox 56 does not have this symptom so my next step was installing Firefox 56 which worked. I installed each version incrementally until I found where this started - version 64 works fine, version 65 refreshes when I press "t".

I am so confused.

If I start opening a hundreds-megabyte PDF, or a JS-heavy website, or a server just do not respond at all, I expect that when I'll press "Stop" button browser would... emm... stop: stop trying to render the rest of the page, stop trying to establish the connection... But notning happens. I don't see any reactions to Stop button. The only way to stop the download is to close the tab (I'm not sure, I hope it stops). By the way, it is especially "nice" when the program closes together with the closing of the last (as suddenly will be realized later) tab.

So, there is the "Stop/Reload" button. Does it do something like stop something? Or it is purely decorative/irritative? Or I just press it wrong way?

My computer goes into sleep mode after inactivity. When I wake up my computer, if Firefox was left open and minimized, I can't click on it for one minute to bring it back up. A dinging sound happens. All other minimized windows can be maximized without issues. This is on a brand new HP PC running Windows10.

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

Hello!

I am enjoying Firefox and want to stick with it. I've had no problems until recently, but lately I've noticed that when I open a new tab, and enter either a search term or a web address in the search/address bar and hit Enter, about 1/4 to 1/3rd of the time, that tab will not respond to that input.

I hit enter, and the tab goes white. The loading bar will get to exactly halfway across the screen, and stop. Or there will be no progress bar, just the little "loading" animation on the tab header. Then it'll do nothing. If I open another new tab and give it the exact same input, often it'll load the requested page immediately.

I've tried running the browser in safe mode to eliminate my (few) extensions, but I can get the same behaviour.

This is getting annoying enough that I've come here and written this post. If anyone can help, I'd be really grateful.

Cheers,

- Ed

Floating Meeting Tab Stuck, Can't Detach Tabs

I'm on Windows 10. The webcam software PerfectCam causes the floating icon-based meeting to be always on top [even if you minimise Firefox] and it also stops Firefox from letting you detach tabs from the main window by dragging a tab outside of the main Firefox window.

This does not happen with other webcam software such as SnapCam or Xplit.

The only way to get out of this problem is by closing Firefox. Extensions I have: Adblock, Adblock Plus, AddToAny Share Anywhere, Checker Plus for Gmail, Duplicate Tab Closer Quick Tabs Ported Startup Apps Weather

This does not happen immediately on the 1st Google Meet meeting of a Firefox session. It happens after a few meetings.

I actually find the always-on-top floating meeting Firefox tab a huge nuisance as I don't have anywhere to place it. If I put it on the corner, it covers the minimise/restore/close buttons. I'd love to be able to turn that thing off.

PerfectCam's maker Cyberlink's Tech Support already gave me some instructions after I sent some diagnostics data from my PC. The main thing was to go to the Device Manager > Display > Intel UHD Graphics 620 > uninstall And then go to an Intel page to download a software to downloaded the latest software for this intel thing.

After doing this, for most of the day, the problem didn't happen even after several meetings. So I thought that the problem had been solved. But at the end of the day it happened again.

I tested Google Meet on Chrome with PerfectCam and the problem doesn't happen on Chrome because it doesn't have a always-on-top floating meeting tab.

I'm attaching some images with information.

Hi all, when loading a PDF the first few pages load, and then the rest only load (slowly) once you scroll/click to view them. This wasn't always the case, and started about 4 weeks ago. My internet connection is 50Mbps, and is running at full speed, and my PC has 32GB of RAM. It's not my internet or PC, as far as I can tell.

Is there a fix? Is this a known new bug? Thanks.

Is a Firefox reload needed? And, if so, how is that done without loosing bookkmarks, history, etc.?
