Yet again, another Firefox update that makes the software unusable! I can't just HOPE that my browser is going to work after an update. I depend on my computer being able to access the Internet and sites that I have bookmarked in my browser. However, it seems that every few updates is a complete and utter mess.

I have found a solution. I have exported my bookmarks as HTML so that I can load them into Google Chrome. I have "backed up my browser" by installing Google Chrome and using that. I haven't had a problem with it and I now have a STABLE browser to access the Internet.

Why can't we get Firefox upgrades that are truly upgrades and not just public bug testing? I don't remember this many UNSTABLE releases in the first few years of Firefox. I guest you've reached the "Kitchen Sink Limitation". I used to use Netscape until they tried to add everything to it including the kitchen sink. It got slow and buggy and it just wasn't worth the effort for me to have to keep worrying about whether or not my browser would be stable. So I changed over to the NEW, SMARTER, SMALLER, FASTER Firefox. Ahhhhhhh, the good old days.

Maybe if you came out with Firefox Classic, that allowed you to access the internet and only add on features that you needed. A Firefox that was small and fast and STABLE. Gee, maybe then I'd be able to pin you to my taskbar again and set you as my default browser. Unfortunately, your "updates" are almost guaranteed to provide me with less stability than the "old" version it replaces.

Here's hoping that you fix your problems...I've already fixed mine!

When I'm in Yahoo mail inbox, I can see and read my (new) mail, but most of the commands don't work and I cannot see emails older than 2020 (it just shows blank lines for them). The emails never get read, nor can I check the boxes for commands. I disabled and refreshed with my uBlock, but it doesn't have any effect. Yahoo works normally when tried on Chrome.

I am having this issue for months now. Im using firefox with a customized about:config modified to enhance privacy. Pretty sure that this is the reason for the green images, however i dont know which setting exactly may cause this...

Anyways the wired thing is, i use duckduckgo as search engine and when i klick on images the results are looking normally, however for privacy reasons i dont want to use duckduckgo anymore since they had a secret deal with microsoft, i have tried many alternatives but sadly all of them have the same issue (which duckduckgo doesnt) when i search for anything and klick on images either some/most or all results are entirely green. Why is this happening and how can i fix it?

Firefox is currently unusable on my system as I get the message "Gah. Your tab just crashed." for every website I try to access. Troubleshoot mode doesn't work. They don't register as crashes. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that doesn't work either. I am using Firefox under Pop! OS.

After the latest update, Firefox loaded huge. It does not fit screen on Windows 11. I have not made any changes that would cause it to load so big. The actual pages are ok, it is the part with the toolbars that is huge, so if I click on something on a toolbar, I can't get to the bottom because it is so big. I've tried changing the view, etc. with no luck. I've cleared my cache and reinstalled it 3 times. No luck getting it back to what it was before the last update. Please help.

Hey guys,

try to open the https://web.whatsapp.com/ whilst the history settings are on Never Remember History - you won't be able to do it.

The page will not download and you will see just the empty page.

Is there any workaround, or makeshift?

Best, Salaidin

Starting recently my FF(v102 &103) is not able to play certain videos anymore. The space for the video is on the page as are the control elements, play/pause, quality, volume, etc, all fully functional. Just the video isn't starting. They do for a while after a restart but inevitably will stop doing so after an hour of use. I havn't been able to figure out what destroys the capability to play videos, but I narrowed it down to certain types. As far as I can tell its MP4 videos in general while on Youtube its AVC1 videos that are not playing. VP9s and ogvs work fine even after the video capability of the browser has been lost. I'Ve check in about:conifg and everything is set to true in terms of media.*

Hello!

I have had this problem for about 9 months. The reason is somehow related to the autoplay of multimedia on web pages. Technical information is given at the end.

After starting work on the computer, all functions work correctly. The video plays normally. After several hours of working at the computer, scrolling through the feed on Instagram (before the video appears in the feed), or viewing stories, or opening a video on YouTube, the web page freezes for a few seconds, after which the screen also turns off for a few seconds (not goes blank), and when it is turned back on, the video either does not play at all showing the loading animation, or only the sound is played, and instead of the video, only a rectangle filled with a random color (black, green, pink) appears.

After that, ALL videos in ALL open tabs stop playing again. Google spreadsheets also stop working (sometimes it also happens because of them, not the video).

This issue also affects other programs on this PC. For example, Telegram Desktop. It shows previews of images and videos, stickers and GIFs, but when I try to open an image to full screen or play a video, the screen goes completely black. But at this time the video is playing and I can hear the sound. Although the mouse cursor is not showing, the controls work and I can close the view in the upper right corner.

Restarting programs does not solve the problem, but ending the Windows session or restarting helps.

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (21H2) Firefox: 103.0.1 64-bit currently, problems started since 80s version Hardware: Intel Core i3-7100 CPU @ 3.90GHz; RAM 8Gb; Intel HD Graphics 630

What has already been done:

 - disabling all add-ons
 - memory test using memtest
 - complete reinstallation of windows with formatting of the system disk

How can I gather logs or technical information about these crashes to find the cause?

PS. Sorry for the mistakes in the text. this is google translate
