Hi there

I've had firefox for years and never had much issues. I've never had this issue before the most recent update where now youtube videos constantly stutter. It's just Firefox as other browsers work fine. I've updated my graphics card and did a little bit of research but none of the fixes quite did it for me. In the past couple days I've always had Firefox crash on me twice, which hasn't happened before either. So I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm prone to point fingers at an update. I don't install extensions or themes, so the only extension I have really is uBlock Origin but that's been there forever. I've restarted my computer as well. It is not my resources, they are more than fine my RAM and CPU and Graphics Card. Task manager shows nothing is even above 50% (CPU, GPU, Memory) when playing the video. I've also tried creating a new profile and opening up a new profile. Same issue.

Can anyone suggest any fixes or is this a firefox update bug?

EDIT: This appears to be for all videos I am playing on Firefox. It also does not matter if I set it to the lowest quality, even 144p, it will still stutter nonstop.

Getting error SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN on all my sites that are signed with a SSL Cert from my internal CA since updating past version 99

This appears to be a bug starting after Firefox version 99 on Windows because after i upgraded to Firefox version 100 i started getting this on all my SSL Certs from my CA and they worked fine prior to the update. Can anyone confirm if something changed after version 100 that is causing this?

Thank you.

I've been using Firefox almost exclusively for years now, and it's always worked flawlessly - until recently! Now, when I log into my GitHub account, I can no longer edit and commit my changes.

When I click on the "pencil" on a rendered page, I am taken to the "edit page" where I can make my changes (in markdown), preview those changes (rendered in markdown), and then commit those changes. Beginning very recently (within the past few days), the preview tab is no longer functional, and I can no longer commit my changes to the file.

I've verified that GitHub has not changed their interface by logging in from my Chrome browser, and following the exact same procedure used in Firefox everything works as it always has.

I recently upgraded from ver 99 to 100, and now to 101.0.1. I recall clicking a pop-up immediately after the 99-100 upgrade that had something to do with cookies... sorry, I know that's lame, but it's all I can recall now. In any case, I am certain this happened recently.

Please help... I have to use Chrome for a couple of things already (my brokerage account at Vanguard for example), but I despise Google, and want to limit their spying.

Thanks,

Firefox wasn't working well on a seldom-used laptop, and the update to 100.0.1 didn't go quite right, so I deleted the old version and (using the odious Edge) tried downloading a fresh copy of the software.

But then I get a message from "7-ZIP" that reads "Can not create temp folder archive"

I'm stuck. Advice?

I'm really confused about how profiles and sync work together for what I assume is a pretty common use case, especially now will all the WFH. I have two devices:

1. Personal laptop 2. Work laptop

I'd like to keep my bookmarks, history, addons etc separate, but be able to access my work environment when working from home on my personal laptop. I've read a lot about profiles and sync and multi-account container but I'm still confused as to how I achieve what I'm trying to do.

Having multiple profiles on one device is straightforward. But AFAIK if I attach two profiles to the same sync account, and try to sync both between two devices, it will only sync one of the profiles (and then merge everything if I try to sync the other). And if I have two separate sync accounts (work and personal), each with a single profile, I can't switch between them without also merging everything. How does one achieve this then?

Manage Exceptions does not work (always allowed websites are never saved between sessions) Bug/Ignorance?

I am using Firefox Version 101.0.1 (64-bit) for Desktop Windows 10 64bit (newest version (see question date for lookup info)).

This problem I could not find anywhere in this Firefox self support community. I think I discovered a bug in the firefox settings, but it might just be me missing something, but I doubt it, being familiar with the settings and them being clearly worded.

I can not seem to get my firefox to save the website always allowed to keep cookies stored between sessions (and their cookies / other data obviously also don't get saved between sessions). - maybe there arises a problem with the setting of never saving history between sessions?

Please, have a look at my current settings below (two screenshots): <image 1 (longer one)> <image 2 (shorter one, custom history settings)>

The settings being written as they are should mean that the always allowed websites should never have their cookies deleted between sessions, regardless of their history (their being visited) being deleted. To me this is frustrating and appears like a bug and not a feature.

Maybe is history is deleted all site permissions and data get deleted, too? - (If yes, that is clearly not what the settings suggest, and if it is supposed to work like this, I strongly suggest the Firefox Dev.s team to fix the confusion or add some feature work-around to suit my use-case. The internet is not a safe place anymore, generally, but some parts are, let me trust your settings do what the say they do, at the very least. Thanks in advance.)
