I've been running into this issue for several months now on Windows 10, currently using Firefox 1070.01 but has been occurring long before that. Only happens on my home PC, using identical accounts on my work PC is unaffected.

When opening a new window of Firefox, the home page and anything clicked within 5-20 seconds of the new window will load normally. After this brief window, all other loading will fail for an indeterminate amount of time, the bars will show filing but will not progress past 80% often resulting in connection error screens. Functionality will sometimes return, but closing and reopening Firefox is always a faster solution.

On this same PC, Edge and Chrome never fail to load pages, even directly alongside a failing Firefox load. This occurs 100% of the time on any webpage.

The same behavior can be observed after clearing my cache, removing all extensions and running the browser in safe mode. It has even continued after a fresh re-install of windows as well, but only ever on this PC and while connected to the internet via Ethernet.

I've replaced the Ethernet cable several times as well as swapping my motherboard, had my ISP swap my router and change the cabling that attaches my router. The issue does not persist over WiFi, but using WiFi only or swapping to it when needed is not an acceptable solution.

My ISP has been out here to test my connection on multiple occasions, no other online connectivity is effected as online games, online chat applications, as well as upload, download and ping monitors all return a stable connection with no interruptions. Only Firefox fails to load.

Would love to work with someone to get this solved. This issue has almost driven me back to Chrome

When I load Chargehub.com into Firefox I should be able to see icons for electric vehicle charging stations plus a menu for such things as plug filters.

However, although the chargehub site loads with a Google map (after selecting Map) I don't get the EV charging station icons or menu. I do get POI icons such as for airfields, cemeteries, parks, churches, etc only when fully zoomed in. The Google zoom symbols and street map view options are also available.

I have not experienced this issue on any other WEB site including Plugshare or Chargemap. Further, when I open Google maps in Firefox and do the search, "ev charging stations in ontario canada", i do see the icons for charging stations.

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox version 107.01 on a desktop computer. Adblock and uBlock origin are installed. However I have the same results when running Firefox in safemode.

I do understand that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7. However, my son is also running Windows 7 on his desktop computer, yet chargehub opens properly on his computer when using Firefox as his browser.

I've tried searching the WEB for an answer but no success so far.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi,

No matter what I do, a google dialogue box encouraging me to use google for password management, pops up every time I go to a site, new or existant.

I've gone into my google account to disable such requests, and, indeed, otherwise use google for nothing....not even search............but they keep coming anyway.

am using ubuntu 20.04, and no other utility or code is giving me this trouble.

I want to stop this dialogue box and eliminate any code in firefox or ubuntu which supports it.....as I have no idea why this box showed up....one day it just started.

Many thanks!

I restarted firefox today, and now I have the following behavior: I have a window with many tabs open, enough that I have the little '<' and '>' scroll buttons in the field. Whenever I move the mouse pointer into the tab area (including the scroll buttons, but not the '+' (new tab) button to the right), unless I am actively clicking, the tabs start scrolling rightward until only the rightmost set of tabs are visible. The window being viewed does not change. I can use the 'v' tab selector to the right, and it will select the chosen tab and make that visible in the window, and make the selected tab visible in the tab bar, but when I again move the pointer into the tab area, it starts scrolling to the right. Similarly, I can click on the '<' scroll left button, or double or triple click on it, and it will scroll the tabs leftward; but immediately after completing the action, the tabs will scroll rightward to the end again.

It seems my problem is the same one as in this thread but there was no solution given there (the problem persists after restarting Firefox in troubleshooting mode). I see the same behavior as that poster with the tooltips in the tab bar, but drop-down menus such as on this submission page seem to be working normally for me.

Every day, I get multiple bookmarks added to my list that I do not want. They include, among others, things like Get Involved (there are at least dozens of these), About Firefox (again, Dozens), Help and Tutorials (many added). They clog my bookmarks on all things that access Firefox (work computer, home computer, IPhone, IPad) and the only way is to go in an delete them. I don't want nor do I need multiple versions of any of these. For that matter, I don't want even one of each added to my bookmarks. I've looked for help but unless you are a tech expert it's almost impossible to understand how to do that. I just want it to stop or I want to know how to stop it in the simplest way possible.

Hi!

I have encountered this really annoying problem on my Firefox app. I give details below. I installed Mozilla Firefox on my freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I tried installing it from Snap Store. However, when I tried saving an image from the web (or, truthfully, any other file chosen by the "Save As..." selection), nothing happened, again and again. I tried many things, including following relevant guides from the internet, but nothing changed. The Firefox version is the 107.0.1 (64-bit), a Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002- 1.0. I, also, have to report some other things, as well. When tried installing the browser from the internet (I downloaded a compressed file, containing the executable), the same function seemed to work. I, now, use the executable to access Firefox. However, firstly, because other difficulties (not problems, but difficulties) arise and, secondly, because I'd really like ti use, mostly, snaps, I report this bug here requesting for help, as well.

Any helpful answer will be appreciated!

Thank you!

Framerate drops after update to 107 on machines with Intel integrated graphics

Since the update to Firefox 107.0 (now on 107.0.1) from 106.0.5 on two Intel-based Macs with Intel integrated graphics running Windows 7 (I know...) under Boot Camp, I'm experiencing poor graphics performance in Firefox. I first noticed this when scrolling felt choppy and then subsequently on video playback (YouTube and other sites). Text input and other animations can also feel more laggy or jittery than previously.

This is very similar to what I first experienced when WebRender rolled out to these devices. At the time, I set gfx.webrender.force-disable=true. However, I believe that setting hasn't been heeded for several versions, so I was eventually using WebRender without issue. The release notes for 107 do not suggest that anything related to WebRender or compositing have changed, which makes this particularly baffling.

The amount of stutter is compounded after opening a second Firefox window (regular or Private Browsing).

I have tried Troubleshoot Mode with extensions disabled and disabling hardware acceleration, but the problem occurs in either mode (confirmed with about:support showing "WebRender" or "WebRender (software)" as appropriate).

I enabled gfx.webrender.debug.profiler=true to examine frame rates. Shortly after launching Firefox, frame rates remain around 60 fps and things feel smooth for a bit. However, the frame rate will periodically drop to about 22-31 fps for 5-10 seconds while playing a video or continuous animation without interaction. Viewing Task Manager for all users during this process does not show a notable spike in activity for other processes when the frame rate drops and overall CPU load is nominal.

Opening a second window causes the frame rate for all windows to drop to 30-31 fps maximum, which similarly periodically falls to 12-15 fps for a few seconds. It's clear that the target 60 fps is not maintained when more than one Firefox window is open. I had not checked the reported frame rate with a second window open in prior Firefox versions, so I do not know if this is a change, just that I hadn't observed an apparent degradation in regular use.

The two graphics cards in question for these two machines are: Intel HD Graphics 3000 Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 I believe both are updated with the last OEM (Apple) Boot Camp drivers for this hardware which, granted, are on the old side. I have not yet attempted later drivers directly from Intel, as I hadn't encountered issues until this recent Firefox update. I have not noticed an issue on my other machines running Firefox.

Any suggestions on restoring the graphics performance would be appreciated.
