Firefox is crashing when using Google MapsStreet Views and when a 3-D picture is loaded in Facebook.

When running in Safe Mode, Google Street Views will function and a Facebook page with '3-D' picture won't crash the browser. This started with the last couple of updates - we're using version 94.0.2 64bit. We check with Safari

Hello, i've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. However, I am someone who enjoys playing games in their browser. And it occured to me, that firefox seemingly lags and stutters whenever i try to play a game.

The two games i have tested are Zombs Royale and Wormax IO. These are two very minimalistic games with nothing much to them. The slowest computers can handle them...

I have a GTX 1080, with 12 gb of rams. I also tested on my laptop, which has unknown specs, but 4gb of ram.

Both devices performed worse then how they would perform in chromium based browsers. I wish to stick with firefox, as i hear security is a virtue with Mozilla, and Chrome really just wants to steal your data.

I might add, that i did follow a couple steps to make my browser more secure, I didn't disable stuff like webgl, but i disabled a bunch of other settings, here is the video i followed:

https://youtu.be/xxWXLlfqNAo

I did install a few add-ons, such as Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and nightTab(I had this on chrome, and without it i feel home sick.)

I am unsure why these problems occur, as far as i know, my computer should be able to handle this.

I cannot find any other questions related to this, and it is really odd to me. I should also mention, Firefox is also quite slow anyways, it just feels slower than chrome, so i'm unsure if it's an optimization issue or what, but this occurs on all of my computers.

I hope someone can help me thank you.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

As the subject describes, installing Bing Wallpaper causes the vanishment of icons of the six default search engines in my region (China Mainland), i.e. Baidu, Wikipedia (actually the icon of Wikipedia is still there), Bing, Google, Amazon and DuckDuckGo, but these search engines themselves are still usable though. It is probably caused because I chose the choice that setting Bing as my default search engine of all browsers and the application (Bing Wallpaper) reset all those engines. I have tried removing these engines from my settings list then adding them back, but the icons are still invisible. I have not tried to uninstall and reinstall my Firefox.

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

My firefox browser has had issues displaying fonts when I have the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box checked. Its not all webpages as some have more bolded fonts, but it is more than one site.

I have scoured these forums trying to locate an answer, but for some reason the fonts are still so thin and unreadable. I have even erased all existence of firefox from my computer and reinstalled, but the issue still remains.

Please help me.

I have a duplicate Firefox account that I would like to close.

I forgot the password for this account, and when I go to https://accounts.firefox.com/reset_password to reset it, I enter my email address for the account I'd like to log into and it fails every time with the message "Primary account email required for reset".

The API response includes the error message "Reset password with this email type is not currently supported".

My account email address ends in @hey.com. Is this domain not allowed for password resets?

I have been trying to locate the temporary file of the failed download video file. I was downloading a huge video file (78 GB) and the system froze in the middle of it. So I was forced to cut the power and restart the laptop. After restarting, I saw that my system drive is still filled with the temporary file (part), but I couldn't locate it and delete the temp file. It has taken up about 40 GB of my system drive space because the download was more than half way through.

When I started the download, I selected an external drive as the destination. However, I have been observing Firefox download behavior and I am pretty sure Firefox would download as much of the file to system drive as possible, until the system drive is full, then moving onto the destination drive, which has been a huge inconvenience, because of the huge video files that I am dealing with.

I have already cleared the file and the .part in the destination drive, but failed to locate the rest of the temp file in my system drive. I have searched the internet and found no mention of such problem. So I am seeking professional help here.

Attached is a screenshot showing how much space is used by checking the system drive properties, against the properties of all files in system drive (including hidden). The number doesn't add up, and there are 52 GB of files unlocated.

I cannot turn on the audio input and the audio output in Discord web application when running Firefox for desktop PC. The advice from Mozilla Support knowledge base regarding how to enable microphone did not help, since there is always no access request from discord.com detected in "Preferences" -> "Privacy & Security" -> "Permissions".

I am using the latest version of Firefox (94.0.1) on Windows 7 SP 1 and Windows 10 20H2. In Discord Support knowledge base the app is claimed to support Firefox version 80+.

I had several different FVD Speed Dials for different areas of interest. Without notice Firefox decided that FVD was a danger I guess and disable it. Now I've lost all those site links.

Ugh. What a pain. Anyone have a solution or am I SOL?

I would like to create Certificate backup since I am planning to install new operating system.

Setting - Certificates - view certificates - selected the certificate which I wanted to backup - click Backup - type File name - Save - typed certificate backup password 2x - click OK

The following message appears: Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons.

I tried several times + I tried also Backup all option - but same issue appears.

Approx. 5 months ago I did certificate backup for my wife and it worked without any issues, now I have no clue what is the reason for not working.

Any idea/suggestion?

Thanks for your help in advance.
