On or about Nov 3rd, after restarting Firefox (106.0.5 (64-bit)), I cannot get the "Bubblez" game to load. I am a long time Firefox user, but consider myself a Novice in technical terms.

The game is at https://wellgames.com/free_online/bubblez/

Thinking the game server might be down, I tried the Microsoft Edge browser, and the game plays as usual. I have not(to my knowledge) changed any settings or preferences inside Firefox, not added any new addons. I restarted Firefox in SafeMode, and the game still fails to load. It is stuck on the green circle as indicated in the attached screenshot.

Any help will be appreciated.

Firefox Lags While Typing After Last Update

Long story short, it's in the title. After the most-recent update, Firefox has been hanging whenever I type, and I'm right in the middle of typing a novel. The CPU usage spikes, according to the Firefox Task Manager, to 300% or MORE just from typing a few words. Even right now, typing this, the screen is sentences behind where I am in my typing. Took an entire minute for the page to catch up. On a single paragraph.

The hanging/lag does not occur when I navigate between pages, stream videos on Youtube or Netflix, or other things which should be about 100x more resource-intensive than typing a few sentences. And yet, that's all that does it.

There are no problems with lag when using Chrome, Discord, or other internet-based programs for typing. There are some issues with my word processor, Open Office Writer, but only when Firefox is open and running too, even though the two don't interact, to my knowledge.

I have followed every step on this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding This page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems And this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-or-cpu-resources beyond upgrading my computer, because it is absolutely ridiculous to consider doing that given the circumstances. It's only Firefox having the problem, after all.

In addition, I have reinstalled my keyboard driver, turned off cursor highlighting (it wasn't on, but I enabled it and disabled it again, just in case), and removed any delay in repeat keys in the keyboard config. No difference.

Honestly, I don't know that there's a community-based solution for this, but I'm willing to be wrong about that. I just want to make certain someone more official than myself is aware of the problem.

Thanks in advance, -Tyr

Yesterday I had Picture-In-Picture (shortened into pip for next mentions) working on youtube, then after one day, PIP no longer works on any of the websites, including youtube. I tried disabling and enabling pip, entering troubleshoot mode, and none of them worked. Not reinstalling because it will be annoying to log in everywhere I've had account at.

Any solution?

The Bookmarks Toolbar is showing up with a message to use it, even though I don't want to use it and have not added any bookmarks to it. This has shifted the actual screen down one line and messed up things I do that rely on screen positioning. Please turn it back off.

Hello,

My version of Firefox started to malfunction.

Found the latest version of Firefox available, and installed it.

Resulted in total loss of data, I lost all bookmarks, passwords, and add-ons.

A folder called "Old Firefox data" was created on my desktop.

Is there still a chance to recover my data?

Why was all data lost?

Accidentally used Close All Windows with 4 windows open, main window gone

I used Windows function to close all windows to close firefox. Big mistake. I had 4 windows open and for some reason, Firefox decides to only save 3. I lost my main window with a few hundred tabs open. I realized that when I opened firefox back up and immediately wanted to restore it using Recently Closed Windows, which usually works, but not this time, because it's been 4 windows. I backed up the sessionstore-backups folder but it seems like the "upgrade" files are too large for it to handle and the recovery files don't contain the missing window.

Help?

On Windows 11, latest version, lots of addons including tree-style-tab, so empty header tabs are in the file for my pinned tabs.

Starting yesterday, every youtube video I try to watch never plays or is in a constant state of buffering. It works fine in Edge, and Twitch streaming has no issues so its definitely not my internet connection.

I've already tried clearing my cache, rebooting, clearing it again and refreshing Firefox and the issue remains. Disabled adblocker as well. I am currently on version 106.0.5

Hi there!

I have a pretty frustrating issue with custom search engines. I use custom search engines all the time to look up words on a dictionary website. In cases where I need to look up something that is more than one word, I'm unable to use this feature because Firefox automatically adds '+' to encode spaces to the URL. since the website that I use does not know how to deal with that, I am unable to use this otherwise convenient feature in cases where my searches utilize spaces.

is this behavior adjustable in any way?

Hello.

I have been unable to access product pages of a particular site, I believe, since updated to 106. The pages are viewable with Edge. https://www.officeworks.com.au/ The main page and some pages are fine but all product pages returns "Something went wrong". E.g. Office Supplies/Pencils https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/office-supplies/pencils?cm_sp=all:menu:office-supplies:::pencils I would like to know if this is Firefox's or the website's fault if so why.

Firefox 106.0.5 Windows 10 19045.2251

Hi, It would be of great help to me if you could give me an advice how to fix my Firefox browser in order to be able to use it with sound. It used to work untill a few months ago, but once, with no reason, just stopped playing sounds , no matter if I accessed a news channel, Youtube or other site that uses sounds.. for this purpose I am forced to use Chrome or Microsoft Edge, but I like more Firefox. I mention that I have an i7 laptop with a Windows 10 OS. Thank you.

A couple days ago, late, I accidentally closed my main Firefox window before a little window that I'd forgotten was there - and all my 76 tabs disappeared. 1st thing yesterday I tried - 3bar / history / recently closed tabs - but the only thing in there was the one tab from the small window. Urg! I tried that and - 3bar / history / manage - where I could see my tabs but could only restore 1 at a time - not good for 76 tabs. I read a bunch of different questions about this same issue, and tried the suggestions, including some app called scrounge, but none of these restored my tabs. Help!!!!
