  • Sorry if the text contains grammar mistakes, Russian in store*

I right-click on a random link, button, image etc. but nothing is happened when I select "Open Link In New Tab", "Open Link In New Window" or "Open Link In Private Window". It works only if I use combination "Ctrl + left-click". Has anyone faced the same problem and know how it fix it?

Using Firefox 94.0.2 and I randomly can't load web pages. It will work fine for a while but eventually I get stuck loading the page. Restarting the browser seems to solve it for a while. This only happens with my Firefox browser on my organization's PC running Windows 10. The browser works fine at home.

I have tried various things, like deleting private data, re-installing the browser, using installed and portable versions, running in troubleshoot mode without addons & extensions, but to no avail.

I'm currently writing this in Chrome because Chrome doesn't have this issue.

As the subject says, when attempting to upload images from my computer (Ubuntu 20.04 on Firefox 94), often but not always, the result will be a visual glitch similar to the image attached. The only time which I have ever used Zoom on Firefox, the same issue happened when I tried to use my webcam, except that the lines rapidly changed colours.

I apologize if this issue has been solved in another thread, but this is a bit hard to describe without the picture, so my attempts to search for said thread were unsuccessful.

The issue is not present when I upload the images in question via mobile. Turning off my extensions has no effect.

The image attached is taken directly from attempting to upload a profile picture to my Firefox account, but I have experienced this issue with websites like Twitter and Ebay for example. I have never had this issue with Imgur, for example, even though I am doing nothing different (uploading images). I do not know why this only occurs for a select few websites.

Any responses or help is appreciated!

Both Firefox and Google are throwing up their "Security Risk" webpage's whenever I try to get AnimalPlanet.com/pitbulls, animalplanet.com, Animalplanet.com etc. If your in the U.S. and reading this then you know what Animal Planet is and you've probably heard of Pitbulls and Parolees. I have the Channel on my computer currently through Discovery+ and am streaming the show, again. This link, the first one I listed, is supposed to take me to an "outtakes and extras" page and i figured maybe that one was broken but I should be able to get to Animal Planet's website without using Discovery+ and it certainly shouldn't keep telling its a Security Risk but no matter how i try the combination of just animal and planet it comes up??????

Firefox will not play any videos for me. This occurs on every website. On youtube for example, the loading circle will be perpetually spinning over the video. I can use the slider to scrub through the video, and a static image will appear, but not play. The Youtube video will play no problem in Edge browser.

This is on a Dell Latitude laptop with intel i7 integrated graphics. I have already tried every common solution I have found while searching:

  • Computer drivers and Firefox are up to date
  • Disabled hardware acceleration
  • Disabled all my add-ons
  • Turned off Firefox enhanced tracking protection
  • Turned on allow autoplay video and audio
  • Started in safe mode, still won't play video
  • Cleared cookies and site data
  • Refreshed firefox
  • Uninstalled and reinstalled firefox

Is there anything else I can try, or any troubleshooting steps I can follow?

Thank you!

After using Firefox for MANY years, having an add Blocker installed and being smug how well it works, The last week has been so very tedious I'm at the point of frustration and thinking of an alternative browser.

Fixes Ive tried, Assign Page File to C:, Disable Add Blockers and tried another, Use Windows MEM diagnosis tool and no errors showed and Check Im using a none aggressive Mem clock = XMP Profile 1, Updated all drivers and GP software, GPU is at default clocks ( MSI GTX 970).

Heres a few reports for you to look over, Please drop ANY suggestions :)

All of a sudden Firefox has ceased to react when I'm trying to download a file/save a page. When I click Cmd+S or File → Save page as…, nothing happens. When I try to open an upload dialogue, a solid gray window appears, and that's it. Uploading files through drag&drop interface works fine.

The problem seemingly appeared after migrating from a Mac Mini to a Macbook Air (both M1). I've already tried to restart the laptop and refresh Firefox — to no avail.

Is there anything else I could try to do?

Earlier, when I activated the search field with the Ctrl + K key combination, it was possible to go far back, by rolling back to the previous words (characters). After the update, it almost stopped working. I press Ctrl + Z and nothing happens. As if the browser "forgot" which characters were entered earlier. I haven't made any changes to the settings after the update. Help.

I was using Firefox on my PC for a long time, but after one of the more recent Windows updates, Firefox began to cause my computer to crash over and over again, blue screen of death, multiple times each day.

I eventually began to use MS Edge, and did not have ANY crashing problems with Edge.

After finding that Edge worked without crashing, I eventually removed Firefox completely from my machine.

BUT, Edge and Microsoft are WAY too intrusive.

Edge kept using Bing as the search engine, no matter what I did to disable it.

I changed the registry entries, based on several different online documents that I found.

I removed Bing as one of the search providers.

I went to the Bing website, where I turned it off.

I am sick of BING. I hate it.

So, I recently searched for the latest 64-bit version of Firefox, and installed it.

Low and behold, it worked great for about 1 week.

Now, it's starting to hang several times each hour.

What I mean by that, is that the cursor freezes, then after a few seconds, my PC makes one sound, signaling that it's seen the freeze, and after 2-3 more seconds, I get a second sound, and the cursor frees up again.

This behavior is getting worse and worse, but it only occurs when I am moving the cursor, or trying to move and click on something inside of the browser.

I do not remember it freezing on any other external apps.

I am running the latest version of Windows 10 Professional, and everything is current and up to date.

I am running on a Lenovo P70, with 17-inch touch-screen, 8-core Xeon processor, with 64GB of RAM.

If I could get BING off of my laptop, I would consider using Edge.

But, I much prefer Firefox, because of it's privacy.

However, it does not do me any good, if it keeps hanging, or causes my WinBlows OS to crash.

Please advise.
