Hello, i've just updated my firefox developer edition from 78.0b9 to 79.0b1 (64-Bit) Now a HTML5 Game in the first tab freezes when i'm opening a website (google or mozilla or any other) in a second tab. Occures with the HTML5 Versions of Shakes&Fidget and Forge of Empires, which i play. No problem with latest version of the normal Firefox (77.0.1 64-Bit) and the previous dev edition 78.0b9 64-Bit. My OS is Windows 10 Pro Version 2004 Build 19041.329

Thanks in advance, Nicole

This has happened several times over the last few weeks. I'll be using Firefox with 8-12 tabs open, or even far less, and then suddenly I cannot select any of the tabs. I click on them, and nothing happens. Video and audio will keep playing, but I cannot select anything.

So at this point I quit it, it closes fine, and when I launch it again it prompts me to either start in safe mode or to refresh. I have to restart the PC to get it to launch Firefox normally again.

The only extension I use is uBlock origin.

I noticed that recently, several of my machines (all logged into the same FF account) are experiencing pretty extreme performance penalties, and when on battery, the battery drains very quickly. Within the Windows Task Manager, I see that FF is often taking up 50%+ CPU even though I'm using fewer tabs than usual. Within `about:performance`, I see that Multi-Account Containers is the resource hog.

On another machine where I am not logged in, FF performance is pretty good. On the affected machines, Edge runs very fast with low CPU/memory use, so there's definitely an issue with FF on these machines.

About:config shows that extensions.experiments.enabled=false, and the Containers plugin hasn't been updated in 2.5 months.

I would prefer to not uninstall containers since they're so useful. I could clobber and reinstall them for testing, but is there a known issue or a quick fix for this?

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3

I have a website on my server that responds to port 8585. When I visit http://myfakeurl.com:8585 in chrome the website loads fine.

When I visit the url in firefox on my phone the website loads fine.

when I visit the url from firefox in windows I get the error below

    Secure Connection Failed
    An error occurred during a connection to myfakeurl.com:8585. SSL received a record that                                 exceeded the maximum permissible length.
     Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

Looking at the incoming request on the server you can see that they filled with special character aand they are indeed very long.....

Before i confirmed that the requests were in fact too long I had tried downgrading to tls 1.2 in about:config

Whenever I search for a new subject(not pre-searched) no results are shown and I get the message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site". This happens only when I use Duckduckgo to search. I have updated firefox to the latest version, used safe mode, and cleared all my browsing history but none of them have seemed to work. I have been facing this problem since 2 days now and initially I used to get the error message "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". Thank you.

Anyone else notice excessive cpu usage with Firefox 77.0.1? It's been going on for the past week. 17.6-27% cpu usage just sitting here on the support page only after a fresh restart of the computer.

I also just noticed tonight not a single page would load. Switched to trouble shooting which disables the addons and pages loaded. Closed the browser and opened it again to be in normal mode and started disabling addons. The one I disabled to get pages to load again was Adblock Plus. Go figure of all the addons this is the one that is going to kill the browser from loading anything. I've already sent a report for this on the addon itself not sure what else to do there other then enjoy a bunch of adds for a while.

The one that concerns me more is Firefox just sucking away at the power for no reason at all. I can fill the top bar with tabs normally and not be using this much cpu. I would say it has developed a memory leak of sorts or something considering it's using 0 disk and network activity yet currently is using 18.4% cpu and 635MB memory for this single page being open.

I built a web application using WebRTC technology.

My case is that I browse the web site on my android phone using Chrome version 83, and then I browse the web site on my pc using firefox version 77. And the server-side code is using node.js. It works fine.

When I switch the connection on my mobile from wifi to mobile network or from the mobile network to wifi, both browsers are handling the "onnegotiation" event infinity.

However, if I browse the web site on my pc using the Chrome browser, the problem does not exist.

I am using the perfect negotiation method to establish a connection.

I have tried to rebuild the connection in socket.on("reconnect"), it does not work.

How can I fix the problem?

And my source code can be downloaded from the following URL for reference:

A month to a few weeks ago Firefox started being laggy when switching tabs; also Facebook and Facebook Messenger; on Board Game Arena and also on Discord desktop app (using Electron/chromium) typing was getting laggy. I thought it might be hardware so I tested the memory with memtest86 but that passed. I also tried safe mode on Firefox but that made no difference.

So I reimaged my HD to a known good copy from December 2019 and then also recently to 2018 and updated to latest version of Windows 10. All seemed well but recently again Firefox has gotten laggy. Even typing in here it occassionally hangs.

I've attached a Firefox Profiler link https://share.firefox.dev/2Zlua5o if that helps with me doing moves on https://boardgamearena.com/ website with each move taking several seconds to do.

I have also the profile with more private information if that helps.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot?

I am now getting extremely slow response from weather.com when requesting radar images. It takes over 30 seconds for the page to load. The same page on Safari loads in a few seconds. Also, a Firefox process drives one CPU core to 100% busy for the duration of the load. This something that must have degraded in the last several updates. I'm using Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit) on macOS. Any one else have this trouble?

HI,

it's a problem that's been around for years, yet i never got an appropriate answer, so i'm asking here:

The longer i keep Firefox running, the slower my whole system gets and the slower firefox itself gets - up to a point (generally like about 10 hours or so) where everything becomes so slow, i have to manually shut down Firefox via the Task Manager. All that seems to be independent from the fact whether i actually do something in Firefox or not.

So i don't know what Firefox actually does while i'm away that kills my whole system, but i'd really like to know and i appreciate any help!!!

THX in advance

Hey y'all,

So last week I opened up Firefox and half the websites wouldn't load. I would click on my bookmarks or type in the URL and nothing would come up. It refused to even attempt to get on the page, nothing would come up. The page would be blank. My extensions weren't working, either, and some websites had logged me out. So the solution I found via Support was to do a Refresh.

I did that and everything worked great again. My bookmarks and tabs were saved, I just had to fiddle with my extensions and theme.

Now, only a week later, Firefox is having the same problem. Websites not loading, extensions not working. I'm using the latest version on Windows 10, so that can't be the issue. Do I just Refresh and hope it doesn't happen a third time? Doing a weekly Refresh would be such a nightmare.

I love Firefox, especially because of the extensions, but that's the only thing I can think of that's causing this issue. I don't have that many and I don't want to get rid of them - they make using the internet bearable.

Thanks~

Hello, firstly sorry for my bad english. When there is for example youtube video playing in one tab, and in another tab there is video that just loads, (it can be muted), for example facebook video, or video on news site, the youtube video pauses for like a half of a second and continues to play afterwards. It gets really annoying when I am listening to music and just browsing facebook. I have tried "refreshing" firefox, reinstall it, I tried some addons, nothing helped.

When I type in search tab, the page always refreshing so I cant ever make a complete sentence and search it. It is the same case when I want to type my email it reloads continuously. After reinstalling, it flashes several times like thousands times even I cant open add ons windows since it refreshes a lot. It also happens in Chrome and Edge. But when I type in Words or Windows Search, it's totally normal. How to fix this? It's totally annoying.

I just had my OS reinstalled with Win 10 32 bit on my 64 bit system. When I try to up or download anything from the web, FFox freezes and need to exit it with End Task. Could the 332 bit win 10 be the problem?

I tried it in safe mode, same problem.

are there some settings I can look at? I tried Chrome and no problem downloading, Hope someone can help I like FFox more then the others.

even when I go to clear cookies from a site like this one https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/ by clicking the padlock icon, and select Clear Cookies and Site data, it freezes.

I can download and Save programs top right of the screen.

I did a clean install, and my issue still persists. Anything else I can try??
