Firefox communication ceases

FireFox Developer 99.0b8 (64-bit) on the "aurora update channel" on Windows 10 PC (version 1803, build 17134.2208)

I notice whenever an update is pending (the green dot appears in the icon for the "Open Application Menu"), FF becomes unresponsive in a way. When it happens: It does not totally freeze. I can select/switch between existing tabs & scroll thru their pages. I can close tabs. I can open a new empty tab. But I can't load or refresh any pages. The only fix is to do the update, and re-launch.

Since the developer edition gets updated frequently, it is a pain.

I like the Developer Tools! But... How can I scale back the FF "update frequency", or "change the channel", so updates are, like monthly at most?

thank you.

I recently upgraded graphics cards from an Nvidia GTX 1080 to an AMD 6900XT. Since then I noticed video stuttering on YouTube while playing 4k videos, especially noticeable at 4k/60FPS (example video ). Prior to the upgrade, I was not experiencing issues.

I monitored task manager as the video was playing to see CPU usage, which was sitting at 25% (4 core 8 thread CPU). GPU usage was fluctuating from 1-3%.

I tried resetting all the changed configuration options in about:config, removing all add-ons, "Refreshing" Firefox, and ultimately uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing has worked so far except for "Troubleshooting mode" in about:support. In that mode, I experience no stuttering and GPU usage rises to 25-35% with the video playing, even before I reinstalled.

This most likely isn't a networking issue as the "Stats for nerds" option on the YouTube video shows I have 10-20s of buffer while the video is still stuttering.

I would like to find out what's different about Troubleshooting Mode that is not giving me the same problem while in "Normal Mode". Any advice?

Hi,

On MacOS whenever I use the horizontal scrollwheel on my mouse (MX Master 3) in Firefox, the browser sometimes decides to go to the previous/next tab instead of scrolling horizontally. It's kind of difficult to describe the exact behavior: the horizontal scrolling DOES work. but whenever I hit the 'start' or 'end' of the scrollbar and scroll a bit further, the browser goes to the previous/next tab. This behavior doesn't occur in Chrome, the horizontal scrolling works fine in that browser.

I've tried the following: Setting mousewheel.with_alt.action to 0 --> Still not working browser.gesture.swipe.left/right to 'blank' --> Nope

Further info: Firefox Developer Edition 100.0b3 on M1 Mac using MX Master 3

Open up about four or five tabs with video like YouTube, Twitch, etc. The video will lag when you move the mouse pointer over to the first tab. This bug has been around for a while. It does not occur with any of the other browsers. I just did a new installation of Windows 10.

Also Instagram notifications don't open when you click on them. This has also been an occurring bug.

Hi,

I have a problem, which only seems to apply to Firefox. I am a developer for a site which uses LetsEncrypt certificate. When I access it via Firefox (and only Firefox), I get the error message as mentioned in the subject.

I tried to understand why this occurs. A quick Google just leads me to an issue with the Microsoft domain, and what I can understand was a Firefox bug.

Trying to figure out if it is a problem with Firefox, or a problem with the certificate. Any thoughts?
