Hello,

I love Mozilla Firefox thus am asking this.

Why is graphics performance worse in Firefox than it is on Microsoft's Edge and Google's Chorme browser?

Is it a matter of settings or what?

I have a AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE APU which is very capable of decoding 4k@60 VP9, but when I try watching Youtube videos in this video settings on Firefox, the frame reproduction isn't smooth. I don't have that problem with Chrome and/or Edge.

The video in question is the following:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wo3aJjwTlA

PS: not sure why but some 4k@60 VP9 videos on Youtube lag more than others.

Hello everyone.

I am currently working on a website kokolingo.hr

I have a slick-slider function inside of it which will create a slider with images: Slick slider

Now the issue is that right now, the slick-slider only breaks on Firefox and it looks like this MOST of the time: Broken slick slider

On top of that, while doing a force reload (CTRL + F5) it can sometimes load slick-slider without any issues and it doesn't throw an error. Both of the images were taken from Firefox itself.

How can I fix this? Most of the time people say that the libraries which make use of the slick-slider aren't loaded in correct order but they are.

If you need more information, simply ask what you need and I will try to deliver.

When I try to print anything in Firefox, the print preview window comes up with a spinning cursor where the page preview belongs, and it takes two minutes before it goes away and the actual preview appears. Only then can I actually print. Whatever process is taking two minutes even prevents me from quitting Firefox -- if I try to quit within that two minutes the FF window does close, bu* Bulleted list itemt the app itself doesn't shut down (as seen from the icon in the dock) until those two minutes have elapsed.

I can bypass the wait by clicking Print Using System Dialogue at the bottom right of the preview window, so I have a workaround. (Although whatever process it's waiting for is still going on, since I still can't quit FF until those two minutes elapse!)

Thanks for any help!

We have a site that for some reason just started getting blocked by FireFox's Tracking content setting in private browsing mode. We have a Production build that still works but our QA build does not. For the life of my I can't figure out what changed that would have triggered Tracking content to start blocking the site. Basically the site will load but we only get a blank page.

Is there any way to debug what exactly the Tracking content filter is blocking?

Появилась проблема с тем, что вкладки стали падать с ошибкой: "Ваша вкладка только что упала. Мы можем помочь!" Для того, чтобы решить проблему пробовал следующее: удалил firefox, удалил все профили в папке Appdata, удалил все файлы в профиле, которые имели название firefox. Вычистил из реестра все, что имеет название firefox. Перезагрузил компьютер. Скачал новую версию firefox. Установил. Проблема осталась. В настройках пробовал отключить аппаратное ускорение. Прокси никаких нет. Дополнений и расширений нет. В безопасном режиме проблема остается. Javascript включен. Пробовал устанавливать старые версии firefox разных поколений, проблема сохраняется. Брандмауэр отключен. Антивирусник Avast free полностью удалял, не помогло. Обновлений системы никаких не было. Не установлены программы для автоматических обновлений. В гугл хроме проблем не наблюдается(версия 88.0.4324)

Система: W7 x64 Proffesional, 8gbRAM, i5-650. Что еще может иметь значение: Установлен криптопровайдер КриптоПро(4.0.9963), но он установлен 2 года назад, а проблема возникла только сейчас. Навряд ли в нем проблема.

Добавлено: Под другим пользователем на этом компьютере проблемы нет. Решение пересозданием профиля и переносом данных не подходит. Добавлено: Портативная версия firefox работает

Firefox (Windows) is currently not displaying the lower-case g in the Karla font when pulling from Google fonts. I've read similar reports with Open Sans, so it may go past just one font.

On the website I'm developing in which I'm seeing the Karla issue, there seems to be no issue rendering the lower-case g in Zilla Slab.

I see no issues in Chromium-based browsers (Windows), or Safari (iOS/Mac).

Any ideas?

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

Today, and before, about a year ago, I suddenly got a Firefox screen show up identifying itself as an annual survey. Confetti pouring down the screen.... The incentive was a *chance* to get a prize. So I proceeded cautiously and answered a few questions that seemed legit. Then, I won a prize... A Samsung Galaxy said to be valued at $1100 for $1. I was not on a page at https://easemastereight-15.life/.... Even more cautiously and suspicious moved forward using the click here, and it redirected to a different site, where of course they wanted a credit card to pay for the $1. At this point I bailed, especially because I was offered the same deal a year ago. What I want to do now is to alert Mozilla about this, and after a lot of searching, this form was the only way I could find. If anyone knows how to route this to the people who should investigate this, please do it. Meanwhile we should all remember that if it looks too good to be true, it almost certainly is.

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!
