I have had a problem with Gmail since yesterday April 13, which was the same day my browser updated to 99.0.1. I'm using a Windows 10 machine.

Gmail is displaying the "Oops… the system encountered a problem (#001)" error message and will not load my inbox. Other websites in Firefox load fine (including other Google apps like Drive and Calendar), and Gmail works fine in other browsers.

When I start to type a reply to a Facebook post, the page scrolls down so that the line I am typing disappears one line below the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down to see what I'm typing. Also, it jumps down the same way whenever I hit the backspace key to edit what I'm typing.

I discovered a previous (archived) post on this forum that suggested using "about.config" and making sure that the value setting for browser.backspace_action is equal to 2. But that didn't change the annoying behavior. Is there any other value I should try? It's not clear what the number means.

Nor did setting browser.backspace to true (or to false) seem to help with the unwanted jumping upon use of the backspace key.

This only seems to happen with Facebook, but it's quite annoying.

My microphone does not work properly in Firefox, it sounds very low and bad.

I have a Corsair HS35 Stereo headset and my sound driver is Realtek HD Audio 2nd output.

I have tested my microphone in other browsers and other kind of applications like Google Chrome, Brave, Windows Voice Recorder, WhatsApp Desktop, etc. and the microphone works fine. It only works badly in Firefox.

I did the test with a portable version of Firefox, and, as with the installed version, the microphone was malfunctioning.

I've also noticed that Firefox lowers the microphone volume automatically (how do I prevent this?), yet even if I turn it all the way up it still sounds very low and bad.

What can I do about it?

Thanks for the answers

Firefox is my browser of choice. For the most part, it works great. In fact, the only issue I've ever had with it is one website in particular not loading. Unfortunately, that website is the site that I use to check my schedule for work, so it not working is kind of a big deal to me. On occasion, it simply will not load. Frankly, that is not a big deal. I can always check back later, when it might work. However, on Firefox, even when the site does load, certain elements do not load. For example, there is a built in tool that includes company updates, scheduling info, et cetera. While it consistently loads perfectly in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, it appears only as a white box in Firefox that occupies the same space but cannot be interacted with. I have tried easing up privacy settings for that website to no avail. I looked to see if there was a javascript option I could toggle, but I could not find it and I am not sure that is the issue anyway. The site is feed.kroger.com, although the authentication page occupies a different URL. Other Kroger family websites have worked without trouble; this is the only one that acts buggy.

Since a short while Firefox seems to stop displaying certain pages on news outlets like e.g. BBC, CNN or FAZ (German newspaper). When the link is clicked the page is displayed first for a short moment then the screen turns blank. On a refresh the page is shown again for a moment only to disappear again. It does not pertain to all pages on the sites, only to specific ones. Odd is too that sometimes third party adds are shown but not the main content of the page itself. It is also noteworthy that this is only happening with news related websites others seem to work normal. This is relatively new. I cannot pin it exactly on a certain time but just about less than 4 weeks ago that problem was not there. Could the issue be related to a recent Firefox update? Do I need to change something in the settings? I would be thankful for feedback. Thank you. JM

Hello there. I've had this problem on 98, 99 and now 99.0.1

Whenever I am on youtube and click on a video, the video will play just fine. However, if I open a video in a new tab or I open a video from something like reddit or discord into a new tab, I get "a playback error occurred. Please try again later. I can recreate the problem very easily. For example, I just went to the homepage and clicked on a random video.

It played just fine, but if I open a video from the suggested videos into a new tab, I get the error. If I click on the same video in the original tab, it plays just fine. Only if I open it in a new tab does it get angry.

Now the interesting thing is, this happens randomly. it does not happen with all videos. If I didn't already watch a video on youtube and open a video from discord or reddit etc, the video is hit or miss whether it will work or not.

Restarting Firefox doesn't help as I can recreate the problem and the problem also occurs in Firefox Safe mode. I don't remember having this problem before version 98.

Thank you.

When using Google Meet, you are given the option to share your screen — either the entire screen, or a specific Firefox window.

I've noticed, however, that no matter what Firefox window is used, if you access an extension that creates a pop-up dialog, such as the Container selection button from Conex, the uBlock origin settings popup for each webpage, or a password manager pop-up such as Bitwarden, those popups will appear on the shared window, even if you decide to do this from another Firefox window altogether.

This is a major security concern for me, as I've had circumstances where the password entry window for Bitwarden will appear on any window, even if I open the extension pop-up from a window not being shared to Google Meet. I'm not sure where to submit this issue, so I'm starting from the Mozilla support page and going from there. Would appreciate anyone's help on getting this issue resolved. Thank you.

I recently bought a new computer will W11. I've set FF as the default browser and email provider- at least, I thought so. Let me explain. Whenever I get an attachment It keeps asking me what do I want to use to open it. You will see from the screen shot FF is the default provider. I also checked W11 default apps and FF is set as the default mail provider. So I'm confused as to why it keeps asking me what provider I should use. I would appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks
