Internet is fine, other apps and browsers load fine. Mozilla support pages load fine, I'm sending this post through the affected Firefox. But every other page I try to load hangs endlessly. Youtube, FB, DuckDuckGo, reddit, just standalone images, literally nothing else seems to load.

I'd installed a mod loader for a game earlier that gave BitDefender a conniption fit I guess because of the way the loader injected code, and BD insisted on doing a "malware clean" on reboot after I told it not to. I suspect BD must have deleted something or changed permissions, but I can't find anything in its app that would undo or provide exceptions etc.

Is there any way to refresh/troubleshoot without having do a full reinstall? (or else an easier way to do a reinstall that's less of a hassle?) I've already rebooted my PC, restarted Firefox a couple times, emptied the cache and cookies, and tried to connect with no proxy, none so far have worked.

(Windows 10, Firefox v 103.0.2)

I've gotten this issue on multiple web sites, and multiple browsers. I'm not sure why this is happening, and I've on the chrome forums too. In the screenshot you should be able to see on the left hand side a menu type listing, and it looks like just off center there is more text for the menu item. It also seems to happen for other links on a page as well.

Recently I have noticed that my Firefox browsing keeps disappearing.

In my settings, I have configured Firefox to "Remember history" (see attached screen shot).

The history for my other browsers, e.g., Chrome are *not* disappearing, only for Firefox.

I have seen solution references to index.dat files, but I have found no *relevant* index.dat files on my computer's disk drives.

What steps can I carry out to retain my Firefox history?

Thank you

However.....tried installing developer version and it works fine!

Any thoughts?

In the last year I have had more and more problems with Firefox. It runs when I don't have the browser activated, it slows things down and now it wont even start at all.

The constant updates always interrupt me when I am working on my computer as well.

So bottom line; what do I need to do in order to use the Firefox browser before I dump the program altogether.

Running win 10 I have a document on my desktop that I would like to open with firefox. I have that figured out using a batch file.

I am opening firefox with the -new-instance -private along with the -url with path to the document.

I want to open firefox in this specific instance using the "new window without toolbar" addon as it is ideal for this particular application.

My question is how do I default to this option for this particular application, while keeping firefox with my bookmark toolbar and other options as my default browser in general usage.

browser.windows.create - broken with specific height/width on hiDPI screens, macOS

I'm seeing an issue in the latest release of Firefox (103.0.2) & Firefox developer edition (104.0b10) when working with a manifest v2 web extension. The issue is not present in Firefox Developer edition (100.0b9) and below.

When calling browser.windows.create() - passing valid options for height & width is resulting in a completely invalid and unexpected size for the resulting window. The code to reproduce the behavior is below.

This is being run in a background script of the extension.

```

 const width = props.width ?? Math.round(window.screen.width * 0.8);
 const height = props.height ?? Math.round(window.screen.height * 0.8);
 // center by default
 const top = props.top ?? Math.round(window.screen.height / 2 - height / 2);
 const left = props.left ?? Math.round(window.screen.width / 2 - width / 2);
 console.log(
   `In openWindow width ${width} height ${height} top ${top} left ${left}`
 );
 const newWindow = await browser.windows.create({
   url: props.url,
   width,
   height,
   top,
   left,
   type: 'popup',
 });

``` The console.log result is ``` In openWindow width 3072 height 1728 top 216 left 384 ``` These are valid numbers for the screen I am working on (standard 4k displays). I am running 3 screens, all hiDPI - two are default 4k external monitors, the third is the built in laptop display.

I have not yet tested the result on other operating systems - however I am running macOS Monteray v12.4.

When running in version 100.0b9 and below, I see a centered screen ~80% of the monitor width and height appear. When I run in the current versions, I see the window briefly flash at full screen, then immediately downsize to a very small window in the upper left corner.

Please see a brief recording of the working version of Firefox Developer Edition compared to the broken version of standard Firefox here: https://monosnap.com/file/80IEHdqgSVND0ZsXKtXkxVPsNINSQd

I am running the exact same extension build in both versions.

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.

Hi all,

My Firefox version is 102.0.1.

I upgraded my desktop from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS.

I removed Firefox from snapd and installed as a deb package.

I noticed these events happening on my system:

1. No voices on getVoices():

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/SpeechSynthesis/getVoices

2. On my system,

$ spd-say -O OUTPUT MODULES espeak-ng-mbrola espeak-ng

$ spd-say -L NAME LANGUAGE VARIANT

spd-say -L outputs an empty table, even though spd-say "Hello world" works.

The second module espeak-ng has voices installed. Running spd-say -o espeak-ng -L produces a long table.

Iam not sure if this is a Firefox issue or an Ubuntu issue.

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

Hi, I have noticed this behavior for a while now and it is becoming bothersome now. It seems to happen ONLY upon initial visit to a site, any site. Once the site loads completely, any links from there loads without the black screen.

Of course, I have searched and tried the known remedies: 1) graphics driver. Chrome, Konqueror and other browsers do not exhibit this behavior. 2) FF add-on's disabled. No permanent difference. 3) Hardware acceleration disabled. No permanent difference.

I'm running 103.0.2 (64-bit) on: Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0 Qt Version: 5.15.3 Kernel Version: 5.17.5-051705-generic (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 23.4 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: llvmpipe
