I am using Firefox 122.0.1, Windows 11 with all latest updates. Recently my HP Laptop has been slow to respond. I rebooted and opened task manager. I started Firefox and it was using about 1500 MB of memory. I closed some tabs to try to recover some memory. However, Firefox kept taking more, more and more. After 15 minutes, it was at 10,000 MB and climbing, and my system was using 99% of memory. I don't believe Firefox did this in the past and this is clearly not working properly. Any ideas?

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 (20XY005MGE) with Win11 Pro.

All of a sudden, Firefox does not play any sound. I notice that it does not show up in the volume mixer. I tried:

Youtube does not play sounds, the Spotify page notices that it cannot play sound (the spotify App for Windows works fine, though). News sites (tagesschau.de / video, deutschlandfunk.de / audio) play the video, but no sound.

I had the problem a few months ago already but I cannot recall the solution :(

Thanks for helpful hints!

Firefox just turns into a black screen and becomes unusable. It has been happening for a long time now and i have checked RAM and CPU usage and they are all fine, as I explored potential causes.

I will be using firefox and it just turns all black on all screens and is completely unusable. To use it again I have to force close all windows and reopen it and it works again.

This is a frequent issue that I have seen

So I just switched to Firefox. But when I maximize the Firefox window (not f11 fullscreen) there is a white small bar on my second monitor. I got my second one above my main monitor where Firefox is. The white bar is all the way from the left to the right side at the bottom of the upper monitor.

Current version 95.0.2 (64-Bit)

Anyone knows how to fix this?

On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

Hi, I've recently noticed that Firefox is not using Intel Graphics for hardware video decoding, here are the specifics:

- I tested this on two separate PC - one laptop with dual GPU (an Intel UHD 630 and NVIDIA GTX 1070) and one desktop with dGPU removed (leaving only an Intel UHD 630 by i7-9700K), on both PC I made sure to run Firefox on Intel GPU only. - According to information I gathered online, Intel UHD 630 should support H264 decoding and VP9 decoding without any problem. - I tested videos from Youtube (VP9, non-HDR video) and Twitch (avc/h264 video) - The exact same video, when played on Microsoft Edge (Chromium), uses Intel's hardware decoder without any problem. - On the dual GPU laptop, when being forced to run on NVIDIA's GPU, Firefox correctly uses the NVDEC decoder without any problem. - Both PC uses the latest Intel driver (30.0.101.1191)

I have attached copies from about:support page below.

In Firefox settings, under General -> Performance section, I have left "Use recommended settings" checkbox on.

Could someone help?

I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

I cannot watch a video on youtube when it is in the process of being live streamed. I remember a time when I was able to, years ago, but I can't any longer. I'm not sure what has changed. I found an article that says to install the optional update called "Windows Media Pack" in apps and features, but no app with that name exists. It was only a year old solution, so I'm unsure of what changed so significantly. I just installed another optional windows update, and also updated the browser, but still doesn't work.

Firefox 97 and previous version CREATES noise in whatever audio is running. Whether it is audio from Audacious, my music player, or audio from the program I am watching on Firefox. How can I stop the noise, which sounds like static from a week station on an old AM radio? Using other browser does not have this audio problem, UNLESS Firefox is running. Even if not actively using Firefox, just having it open on the desktop causes noise. Using Linux Mint 20 64bit. Audio produced by motherboard ASUS Prime B550 Plus with AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor. Clicking on Firefox Help gets a message saying "Updates disabled by your system administrator" along with the normal text. I didn't disable updates and I am the Admin.

Can someone help? I'm close to abandoning Firefox, which I don't really want to do.

1. When I open Firefox, I get the following error on the landing page (google.com):

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

2. When I navigate to a non-secure website, either by typing in the URL or using a bookmark, I get the following error:

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.

3. When I navigate to a secure website, it works and I can log in to log in screens for financial accounts, etc.

4. I'm running Windows 10 on a PC and Firefox version 97.0.1. My Firefox on my Android works fine.

5. My only extensions are Adblock plus, Cisco Web Extension for Webex meetings, Javascript toggler, and Video Download helper. I have no Themes downloaded, and my only plug-ins are one added automatically by Mozilla (OpenH264 Video) and one added by Google (Widevine content decryption).

6. I've checked all of the proxy settings, all of the https only settings, and I've disabled each and all combinations of the extensions including reboots of the computer after each trial change - but nothing works.

Anybody have any ideas? Anybody experiencing this? It's been happening since about the last three Firefox updates. I keep waiting for an update to fix this, but it isn't happening.

Help, please?
