When I try to play a video on Firefox desktop, it takes it a long time to load. Once it has loaded, whenever I pause it for more than a few seconds, or if I try to skip around the video (either by clicking around in the loaded section of the progress bar or using +/- seconds buttons), the video begins buffering again before the video resumes. This makes it extremely difficult and frustrating to watch anything that requires me to pause, rewind, or fast forward. I've noticed this issue affect multiple video viewing sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Netflix. My roommate also uses Firefox, but doesn't have this issue, so I know it's not a problem with my internet. I thought it might be a problem with my computer, but I tried to replicate the issue in Chrome and everything worked fine there. The issue has persisted almost a week. I have:

  • Rebooted my computer several times
  • Deleted my history/cache
  • Disabled my extensions
  • Turned off Java scripts in firefox (this disabled my ability to load sites like YouTube completely, so I turned it back on)
  • Updated my computer
  • Updated my graphics drivers
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox (and rebooted my computer)
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox AND deleted all the data it stored on my computer (and rebooted my computer)

I am currently using version 123.0.1 of Firefox. My OS is Windows 10 22H2.

I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

Right after a Firefox update on or about 3-8-24, when I click on the network icon on the Windows 11 system tray, the network icon in the Quick Access area is no longer there. But when you click on the network icon you see some soft of video player controls if you have a video open in Firefox, and the network icon is gone! I need to have the network icon restored. And BTW, when clicking the pencil icon to add something to the quick access, there is NO network icon to be added! Its not there, in fact, the "add" is greyed out, and the option for adding "network" no longer exists. I don't really like the video player controls that show up like in the photo, and would like to be able to make that go away.

Mac Dock won't disappear when I put youtube video (or other things like google slides) in fullscreen

Hi, I am using the newest Mac Air 15" with M3 chip, with the latest version of firefox (123.0.1) I have found an issue where when I put YouTube videos in fullscreen mode, the dock will not disappear like it normally would. The only workaround I've found is to put firefox in actual fullscreen mode (which then makes the dock disappear entirely), but I would prefer not to do as I typically maximize my screen instead. I'm assuming this is a bug on firefox specifically as fullscreen mode for videos/other things works normally in Chrome and Safari (which I also maximize screen), with the dock disappearing as it should.

I don't know if anyone else has encountered this issue though (as everything works fine on my older Mac...) Hopefully this can be resolved soon? I hope this makes sense :")

Hi.

Ever since I upgraded to version 123.0.1, I am constantly getting slowness on websites stuck in "Performing a TLS handshake..." Eventually the websites load, but it's frustrating. I have read about the various solutions and have tried the following: Disabled IPV6 Refreshed Firefox Reloaded Firefox Disabled and removed all extensions Restart in safe mode Create new profile

This was not happening in version 122 and before. Microsoft Edge does not have this problem, but I prefer to use Firefox. I am running Windows 11 Pro. Any ideas?

Thanks

I run Firefox on a Dell laptop running Windows 10 Pro. I had to rebuild my system because of problems I couldn't solve. I've reinstalled Firefox and copied a profile I had saved in the cloud. When I click the extensions button ("puzzle piece") I do not see the extension list, only the add-ons page. do I have to uninstall and reinstall each extension to get it into the panel so I can pin some of them to the toolbar?

I've just switched to firefox from brave, and theres no button on twitch to enable picture in picture. Using the keyboard shortcut (cmd+option+shift+]) works, but I'd much rather click something on the screen. On brave there used to be a picture in picture button alongside settings, theatre mode, and fullscreen buttons, but on firefox this has been replaced by a clip button. There's no option for it if I right click (this works on youtube), and no option in the address bar for either twitch or youtube. I've tried disabling all my extensions and lowering protections but nothing seems to work.
