I woke up this morning and realized my youtube wasn't working right. It was loading endlessly and wouldn't play right away when I clicked a video. I thought at first it was a computer issue so I restarted it; but that didn't change anything. Then I thought it was an internet thing, so I switched to my mobile hotspot; but still nothing changed.

I've restarted my computer 3 times, restarted firefox 9 times and done just about everything I could find online. I turned off the recommended hardware settings, went into troubleshoot mode (although I'm not tech savvy so I didn't really understand what to look for), made sure firefox was up to date, cleared my cache and cookies, made sure all my add-ons were up to date; and still nothing.

And it's the same for Twitch. It just loads endlessly and doesn't play anything. It doesn't give me an error or a bug notification; just shows the gracy spinning circle and nothing else.

The only way anything loads is if I turn the quality down to the lowest one possible and have it paused for a minute to let it load on its own.

It works fine in Microsoft Edge; but just not in firefox.

Today 05-08-2023 when useing Firefox, im no longer able to use enter key to execute a simple google search. But it works fine on Edge. I don't want to be forced to switch to Edge, how to i fix it?? it just happened randomly. More precisely it's the center of screen search-bar that don't work.

Why does the Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu keep changing the value of browser.opaqueResponseBlocking away from the default and selected FALSE setting to TRUE? This makes Firefox nearly unusable since the streaming video keeps being cut off when Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu keeps changing the value of browser.opaqueResponseBlocking randomly during use. Specifically this is the 116.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 that is installed with Ubuntu 23.04. Please advise.

Hello,

I reinstall my windows 11 yesterday and since I cannot log in office. I go through the identification process, then once done I am back to the sign in page.

On chatGPT, when I go to login, I got the error message "We ran into an issue while signing you in, please take a break and try again soon."

Both websites were working fine last week. Also on the same computer I can access these websites using chrome. I tried to clear the cache and the cookies, disable extensions (ublock + cuberghotVPN), lowering security options like disable DNS security and disable tracking security, I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, but I can't fix this issue.

I am a bit out of ideas to try. Anything else I can do to get access back to these websites?

Thanks

Firefox high CPU Usage even when no tabs open in a separate process

Hey folks,

i am facing issue with high CPU usage on firefox in completely different process other as visible in task manager than my actual process for firefox. is there something wrong with firefox or my system.

This separate process uses more than 60% of my CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 4600). If I close that process in the task manager nothing happens to my current firefox process and i can use firefox normally.

But everytime this separate process starts my system fans ramp up and CPU temps peaks to 70 degrees celsius. and i have to end that process to make it run normally. Thats a quite annoying process to do every time.

I am able to recreate this separate process by:

  1. 1. Plug my system for charging
  2. 2. I was working offline and connect to internet

both the times the separate process automatically starts and uses very high amount of CPU. I even left my system for 2 hours to keep that process running and complete whatever it was doing. but nothing happend. It continued to run for 2 hours also.

Please find a solution for this. I have already tried solutions provided in the forum:

  • Restarting firefox
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Enabling hardware accleration
  • Clearing some user profile data
  • Completely uninstalling firefox and deleting the residual files then reinstalling etc.

but nothing worked.

media like .gif files and .mp4 files are used very frequently in the Discord servers I'm in and for some reason whenever those specific file types are used won't load/function. I noticed that while the DRM icon was present in the discord tab, that those two file types worked just fine; but I have no clue how to set it to always turn on for specific sites.

How to make "Reopen Closed Tab" actually reopen closed tabs again?

Up until Firefox 116, Reopen Closed Tab (Ctrl+Shift+T) would reopen closed tabs, and Reopen Closed Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) would reopen closed windows. There was a clear bifurcation, so I could freely close windows and not worry about it polluting my tab history in another window.

The latest change has thrown out that advantage, and now Reopen Closed Tab reopens both tabs and windows, while Reopen Closed Window still just reopens windows. This makes the later essentially useless and the former much more difficult to use for me.

I assume this was done to just continue copying Chrome in all respects since that's how it handles it, but the changelog just vaguely states, "This change is in anticipation of upcoming changes to recently closed tabs."

Does anyone know if there's a setting to separate the two functions again?

[SOLVED] Firefox account not syncing Gravatar photo

Hi,

On September 15, 2022 I created this thread here on Firefox Support Forum and now I finally have an answer to the question, but as we can see my thread was archived and I can't update anything, so I decided to create a new thread just to mark my previous question as solved and bring it an answer.

I contacted Mozilla Firefox developers and got a response: Firefox is no longer integrated with Gravatar. Considering this, I can tranquilly say there is no bug or problem with my account as I thought. It's a pity that Firefox no longer support Gravatar integration, and even if I use an old version I will face the same "issue" because the Gravatar integration was a online feature linked to the Firefox account*, not to the browser itself.

Info source: https://github.com/mozilla/fxa/issues/15665

- - -

Admins can now archive and close this thread, I only ask to keep it online to help who may need this information in the future. Thanks.

  • Actually I made a mistake when I wrote this, the Gravatar integration was an online feature linked to the Mozilla account, not Firefox. James explained the distinction on #4 post of the current thread.

Last edit: On January 31, 2023 I created this thread on r/firefox but no one answered precisely. This current thread here on Firefox Support Forum also solves what was asked on reddit. The thread created on January 31, 2023 and posted on r/firefox was archived as well, like what happened to my thread with the same theme here on Firefox Support Forum, then I also created a new thread on r/firefox to mark my question as solved.

Acting on advice provided by the Computer Active magazine I have installed uBlock Origin in order to block adverts. I was advised to stop using Adblock Plus. Adblock plus had an icon which I could click to see if it was working. uBlock Origin doesn't seem to have any visible icon. The add ons manager indicates that uBlock Origin is the only enabled extension, but is it doing any advert blocking? Shouldn't there be a clickable icon?

Logins appear on log-in pages as soon as I type anything in the user box. I have not told Firefox to save any logins or passwords, I do not want it to do that. But on the "saved logins" page after going to the Passwords item on the main menu (three lines) it says No Logins Are Found. None. How do I make sure none are saved, since obviously some are being saved somewhere? And how can I get rid of the ones that appear, so must be saved somewhere? I use Windows 10, and Firefox with the latest updates as of August 2, 2023. Norton 360 is installed. Thank you for help with this.

YouTube videos on Firefox getting slower and jerky. After refreshing Firefox (Settings -> Help -> More troubleshooting information -> Refresh Firefox), it is OK, but only for a short while. Then the problem starts again. Same YouTube videos are running fine with Chrome at the same time.

Running Windows 11 Pro (Clean windows setup not long ago and the issue was there from the beginning.) German Language Firefox 116.0.2 Build ID 20230805021307 Intel CPU i7-1360P, 16 GB RAM, 1TB M.2 SSD

Would really appreciate a solution for the issue because I really like Firefox!

Playing media volume is low. In-page volume is maxed (eg. YouTube video controls). OS Master volume is maxed.

But the volume of the Firefox in Windows Volume Mixer is a fragment of the volume set. If I adjust it to max, it jumps to a fragment of it. If I adjust it to lower, it gets even lower, like a percentage of what I actually set. The level I actually set gets a grayed out slider button, and the actual slider button slides to this lower level. See the screenshot in the attachment.

It may sound like an OS issue, but as I understand, this is the output level set by the application (Firefox, in this case). Rebooting the OS doesn't help.

Hi Firefox Support,

I was directed to contact you by Metamask Support. I'm experiencing a problem connecting to Metamask from Firefox, though it connects without any issues in Chrome. Based on this, Metamask Support believes the issue may be related to Firefox.

Here's what I've done to troubleshoot so far:

Cleared cache data in Firefox. Verified that I'm using the latest version of Metamask (34.0). Encountered an error when trying to switch networks with the message "unable to connect to Polygon." Confirmed that no other wallets are causing conflicts. I've attached some screenshots for your reference.

Given that I can connect to Metamask in Chrome and have already cleared data in Firefox and ensured I'm using the latest version of Metamask, Metamask Support suggested the problem might lie with Firefox.

Could you please help?

Thank you.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE For Xfiniti.com email (Comcast). I saw many other questions to Mozilla on the same issue, so it's not those certificates. Edge connects just fine, as does Safari on my phone. Mozilla is the one with the problem, and you need to correct quickly, please. I need my email for many daily tasks, and it will be a lot easier to move to another browser than to another email.

I was using my computer and Firefox all day to watch videos, browse twitter and Tumblr and whatnot until around 15:30 my time, when suddenly Twitter stopped loading my timeline. I thought it was an issue with Twitter or my computer. I restarted my PC twice so far and rebooted my modem (completely unplugged, left it alone for a min and plugged it in again).

I still cant load my twitter timeline, not even in private with all extensions turned off. It does load Tumblr, but like 80% of the pictures/gifs, even profile pictures do not load. When I search for something on Duck Duck Go it sometimes works but most times it just stays blank. Youtube videos either do not load at all, or stop loading/load endlessly at some point. I am still able to navigate the Youtube website tho.

I really do not want to use Chrome, but the latest update is just unusable. Am I the only one?

(I forgot the word for modem, dont judge me.)
