ok so ive tried everything and from what ive seen firefox has a sudden spike in cpu in a random proccess and stops working before firefox kills it off and everything goes back to normal

one place where it happens consistently is the sign in page on ebay. the only fix ive found is opening firefox in troubleshoot mode

before you ask, ive reset everything on firefox. brand new install of it too. nothing on this version of it. still happens. its not the plugins nor settings

please help me im not the only one having this issue

I am using Firefox 105.0.1 on a Windows 11 computer. I have sufficient gpu and cpu power to run 4k videos in full screen with no choppiness or lag. However, when I exit full screen mode it seems as if frames are being skipped. I am using LocalCDN, Ublock Origin, and container tabs.

Is there any reason for this to be occuring?

Thanks

This has started to day, I'm running it on Windows 11 and if I minimize a windows sometimes I am unable to reopen from the taskbar, I would see the browser window flash for 1 second and then a window error bell sound will play, but there is no error message. The only way I can get back that window is to right click the icon in the taskbar and click Restore on the rightclick pane. I would have to do this everytime this happens.

I don't know what caused this, it was fine most of the day and just started late afternoon. Anyone have a clue to the root of this issue and what's your advice?

On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

Sometimes, when I have 4-5 tabs open, I scroll on a page and suddenly everything freezes. The opened pages are news portals I can't switch between pages, I can't close pages Switching to another application in Linux everything works fine. I can close Firefox and restore the previous pages after reopening. No error message. The about:crashes is empty. In gnome-system-monitor firefox-bin looks good

Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon Everything is the latest version It is not caused by a Firefox add-on

I am using Widows7 Home Premium with Yahoo Mail and Firefox, a combination that's worked for years.

When starting an email and when you put the first letter in the 'To' line I used to get a box suggesting all the names in my contact list beginning with the same letter. With a simple click on the name you want, it appears on the 'To' line. This is not now happening and it's a pain having to dig out email addresses from elsewhere.

I have not made any alterations anywhere on the computer, it just disappeared one day.

How can I get this feature to reappear?

I've had this problem for a couple of years already. Not with other browsers and, with the Internet Download Manager extension, I'm usually able to download multimedia content in FF. (That's been my workaround.)

For example, when loading this humble URL ... https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/transcoded/d/d8/Plattenknistern_record.ogg/Plattenknistern_record.ogg.mp3 ... if I have autoplay enabled, it'll crash right away ("Your tab just crashed"), without autoplay, it'll crash as soon as I hit play. No report gets created under about:crashes.

No difference if I create a new user profile and disable add-ons. Disabling hardware acceleration doesn't help either. I can't do without most of my settings and add-ons, so refreshing FF is not an option. I'd sooner try a new install (and then import my profile and reinstall add-ons), but that's laborious, not guaranteed to solve the problem, and I figure that there ought to be some way to diagnose a crash in such straightforward circumstances? Telling the JS debugger to pause on exceptions seems to be no help.

Twitter videos used to work, albeit without audio, so long as I didn't pause and then resume playback. Lately, after upgrading from FF 104 to 105 (or possibly through a change on Twitter's end), I get "the media could not be played."

Whenever I try to type in numbers on a web page, Firefox either closes the page or it opens the address bar on the browser. Sometimes it puts up a dialog box asking if I want to leave the page. It's very frustrating because Firefox is making it difficult to add a new credit card to my accounts. This started in the last few weeks, and I'm not aware of any new updates. I tried to refresh Firefox but this problem is continuing. I have a refurbished by Apple 2020 MacBook Pro running Monterey 12.4. I believe in Mozilla and would hate to go to Chrome as my main browser. Can you help me? [email removed from public]

Firefox V105.0 64bit Win10 Pro - when streaming Audio, data download is too slow. The Player eventually catches up with the downloaded data and simply Quits when there is none left. This has never been a problem before until this last update . . . . I have tried with Avast's Secure Browser and with MS Edge Browser and BOTH these stream WELL AHEAD of playback - so the problem doesn't arise . . . . With these two Browsers playing an 8 minute .mp3, by the time the player has reached 5 minutes, ALL the remaining data has been downloaded . . . . I made a video from the screen (Bandicam) but the <add images> doesn't allow it . . . . Any Ideas? Or perhaps I wait for the next update and hope it gets fixed . . . . ATB Chris

Hello :)

Firefox 102.0.1 crashes after some Time. Firefox then is unable to switch between Tabs and stuck at the opened Website.

For testing Purpose i start over with a new profile and did not install any Add-ons. The behavior was the same, it crashes after some hours.

My System is Ubuntu Mate (Ubuntu with Mate Desktop) in Version 20.04.

Here has someone the same problem: -> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=277649

I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 which is using the snap package of Firefox.

It seems that I cannot open local files in the /tmp directory. When I place a test.html file there and run `firefox /tmp/test.html`, it returns a file not found error. Why?

I don't have the problem with files in my home directory.
