Bonjour, Hello,

I contact you because, even without an adblocker, Youtube is very slow with Firefox navigator. I don't understand why and I don't have this problem with Google Chrome ? Fews years earlier, I never had this problem with slow Youtube when using Firefox Navigator. I don't know if the problem comes from Youtube or Mozilla and I contacted both of them.

Thank you.

Bonjour,

Je vous contacte car, même sans bloqueur de publicité, Youtube est très lent avec le navigateur Firefox. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi et je n'ai pas ce problème avec Google Chrome ? Quelques années plus tôt, je n'avais jamais eu ce problème de lenteur avec Youtube lorsque j'utilisais Firefox Navigator. Je ne sais pas si le problème vient de Youtube ou de Mozilla et je les ai contactés tous les deux.

I've been using Firefox for the past two years. I go onto www.homedepot.com all the time. Every day, multiple times a day. All the sudden over the past two weeks, it won't load my bookmark. I type it in manually, it doesn't work. I clear cache, history and restart browser. No luck. I restart computer, still an issue. I go into 'private window', kind of loads and then all the sudden freezes. I use Chrome and it works no problem. Then I search the Firefox support forum to find that multiple other people have had this issue over the past five years.

I mean wow, I use Home Depot to buy materials for work plus a credit card account and then to just have it not work anymore on this browser for no apparent reason is crazy. Then to not be able to contact anyone at Firefox regarding the issue is also crazy.

I mean it's fucking homedepot. I know like 10 years ago there was a data breach with them so maybe firefox is protecting itself from them? But then just have a message pop up saying you can't access the site on firefox. No problem. But to have it be so open ended and a continuous problem over years. That's just dumb. How can I trust Firefox with my information and data if I can't even access a basic site with no recourse for solution or understanding or help?

Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

Recently Firefox is slower and when I have one screen up and go to task manager it shows anywhere from 8 to 40 instances of Firefox running and sometimes 98% CPU usage. I have had other problems since the Microsoft January 9, 2024 update. Is this related or is this a separate Firefox issue? How to start fixing?

thanks

There are sites, including yahoo that all my comments are coming back as "comment failed to publish" or other sites where comment section just not there. Seemed like this started happening after a recent Firefox update. I have contacted web sites, my protection service and they have, after research come back with problem is Firefox. If there' something I've done or not done to have this happen, let me know. It DOES NOT happen when I use, as example Edge or anyone else. Thanks......Mike

I have recently downloaded Firefox on Windows 11. When I first installed it, it worked fine, but it crashed and I couldn't open it again. When I try to open Firefox, a "Troubleshoot Mode" window flashes for less than a second and closes. About 8 months ago, on a different computer with Windows 10, had the exact same problem. I thought it was just because it's ancient, but it does the same thing on my well-functioning computer. I have tried the Microsoft Store Firefox and downloading from the website. I have reinstalled and restarted several times, and my computer is up to date. I do not use any 3rd-party security software. I still cannot launch a Firefox window at all. I love Firefox on mobile and I really want to use it on PC. Thanks for your help!!

I have been a Firefox user for most of my time on a computer and that's a lot of years. A regular site I visit is Townhall.com. A few months ago I could no longer play videos because the link (video screen) would not appear. The text below where the screen should have been appears. I worked with Townhall on this and we could not solve it. Interesting was that periodically the link would appear but now doesn't appear at all. So I am forced to use MS Edge for Townhall videos.

Then it happened on another site I frequent - RacerX.com. When I try to play a video I get a blank screen with the message: "Unfortunately your Targeted Advertising privacy settings prevent us from showing you this YouTube Video. Please update your consent to see this content." I cannot find anything in settings which should cause this. I changed nothing. Settings are the same as they've been for years. So now for RacerX videos I have to use MS Edge.

I would prefer to continue to use Firefox as my browser but switching back and forth is not productive. As much as I do not want to make MS Edge my default browser it looks like I will have no choice unless you can help me solve this issue.

This doesn't happen every time, but certainly more frequently than it should. Is there anything that can be done about this. Is this about competing for resources. Maxing out the CPU?

Just now occurred. Firefox closed shortly after opening Chrome. No crash notification. Then, Chrome froze, with one of those "Close program or wait" messages.

For the past week or so, Firefox has been resetting the tab I am using. The whole tab will suddenly go blank except for blank placeholders for buttons, frames, etc., after which a few seconds later the tab reloads. If I was watching a video, that video is still there but has been reset to the start. There does not seem to be any particular trigger (I read another thread from about a year ago in which another user described the same problem.) I have never seen this kind of random reset/reload behavior in Firefox. Let me know if there is a way to collect more information if possible. Thanks for your time.

Had it yesterday, happened this morning after the restart and just NOW, when I entered 6 lousy tabs, and they are NOT in the recently closed list either.. wups, gone, no tabs, setting has a check mark on open previous windows and tabs. Within 24 hours, lost the tabs three times with a non reported crash and Firefox closing itself with no warning.

I honestly do not think I am responsible to keep a backup of my browser history, I expect a browser to do that. I switched from Opera to Firefox not to long ago.. even Opera is a security risk.. at least it doesn't delete your tabs just for fun.

Very simple.. that happens once more and i am OFF this browser....

since the update today my browser's been really slow to stream video across the board.

i fixed this a few months ago by turning hardware acceleration off and i tried to check if it had been turned back on and the entire option is completely gone from the performance section in settings.

i dont see an option anywhere else to change this, and i really dont want to switch back to chrome for streaming. is there a hidden option somewhere that im missing?

Every time I open Mozilla browser, it crashes right after it opens.

This only started happening since recently. Before this, I haven't faced this issue while using this browser for year(s)

I have failed to resolve the issue with the following methods:

  • Updated Firefox
  • Tried to use Troubleshoot Mode (crash still happens)
  • Uninstalled Firefox, deleted additional files and re-installed
  • Did Refresh

Other browsers are working fine

I am using Razer Blade RTX 2070 Max Q, VR Ready Graphics (8GB GDDR6 VRAM) 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10750H Processor 6 Cores/12 Threads, up to 5.0GHz

I love Firefox and am a committed user, but on only one of my PCs it runs so slow that I am considering switching browsers. The slowness happens most of the time, but not all of the time, except when I open more than one tab, when it is all of the time. (Neither Chrome nor Edge have any such problems.) The loading time for pages is agonizing, and I have tried the following:

  • Clearing Firefox's cache (which usually fixes the problem for a day or so)
  • Resetting Firefox (which usually fixes the problem for a day or two)
  • Using all combinations of Performance settings (using/not using recommended settings and using/not using hardware acceleration

I am running the same Kaspersky software on this PC as the ones on which Firefox runs well, so I don't think that is the problem (although I'm not an expert tech user, I admit). I'm running an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X with 2x8 GB DDR4-3000 RAM. Please advise.
