Blinking pictures on a certain webpage (link below)

Recent updates on firefox (firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) seems to have issues with pictures in this webpage webpage :

System Host: Kubuntu 20.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-38-generic

I tried a virtual machine (gnome boxes) with pop os. Firefox works fine with no updates, but after updating to (Firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) it shows the same issue on this page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box

Guest: POP OS 21.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-7620-generic

I also tried on Boxes-Manjaro (Firefox 91.0-1) and works fine, then I updated it to 93.0-1 and have issues as well on the page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box.

Guest: Manjaro KDE 21.1.0 Kernel: 5.13.11-1-MANJARO

On all of this OS, pressing left click on the image solves the problem temporarily, scrolling down or up makes the blinking appear again

My final thoughts are the KDE docs page uses a lot of fancy links which probably is not standard for a general web page which leads on unexpected issues on newer version of Firefox, a workaround would be installing deb packages of Firefox 91 because is stable and trusty and installing new one if needed, a caveat would be updating manually. In any case I would like to know what else would causing

When I click in the URL search bar, a list of the most common sites appears, with one glaring omission, eBay!

All my other frequent website appear, like bbc.co.uk and youtube.com and scan.co.uk etc etc, but ebay.co.uk is always missing despite my visiting the site at least 3 times a day.

Any ideas as to why please?

Cheers, John.

I have exactly the problem described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1042093: whenever I press any keys on a page, it brings up the search bar, which breaks all kind of shortcuts / keypress handler set by the page.

However, I can't seem to find the option which is meant to turn this behaviour off.

I do not know why you had to take something that works pretty well and screw it up with a hap-hazard update. I cannot open GMAIL in standard mode, it keeps wanting to go to HTML mode. I tried to figure out what in the world the solution is in the support center. is it , "Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux) '? This doesn't work. It then says to, "Clear the cache and remove the cookies from websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Options/Preferences). "Clear the cache": Firefox/Options/Preferences -> Advanced -> Network -> Cached Web Content: "Clear Now" "Remove the cookies" from websites that cause problems. Firefox/Options/Preferences -> Privacy -> "Use custom settings for history" -> Cookies: "Show Cookies" doesn't work. I can't find the options/preferences button. As I alluded to at the beginning of my statement. It was working pretty good till this last update. Now I am really frustrated with firefox and looking at other options.

Starting a few weeks ago firefox refuses to play video from netflix and prime video. I've googled a bit, but nothing worked. Using firefox 93.0 on windows 10, here is what I tried so far (not necessarily in that order):

  • Refresh page
  • Restart PC
  • clear cache
  • disable extensions
  • run in troubleshoot mode
  • refresh firefox profile
  • try a new firefox profile
  • reinstall firefox
  • checked whether the drm box is checked/checked and unchecked it a few times
  • reinstalled widevine
  • checked whether privacy.resistFingerprinting is false, since someone apparently had a netflix error related to that setting

Probably forgot some. Also works fine on other browsers, just thought it was odd.

Here is what the errors in the debugger say:

on prime video:

Font looks really ugly in this site: : https://yle.fi/uutiset/tuoreimmat In Opera instead font in the same site looks smooth and normal. I use ClearType and never before had such problem. Just shifted back to Firefox from Opera, because updated Opera has Privacy error notifications on too many sites and can't even get to some sites. Now Firefox looks so ugly. I suppose I'll go back to old Opera and never update anymore. Even old Firefox worked fine.

Hi,

It seems that somehow DRM has stopped working in Firefox: as of this morning, I get the message to enable DRM on spotify, netflix and other sites - enabling DRM only yields the message "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio on this site...".

Using Firefox v93 on Manjaro 21.1.6, all up to date

I've tried (in order):

  • made sure "play DRM controlled content" is enabled
  • restarted browser in safe mode
  • refreshed my profile
  • uninstalled Firefox, removed profile folder, reinstalled Firefox
  • tested on a Windows VM with the newest version of Firefox -> works
  • installed the Spotify player as app (snap package) -> works
  • installed Vivaldi browser and DRM content works there too

I don't understand what could have changed - have had no issues when I updated firefox to the latest version a few days ago and changed nothing last night. Simply logged back in today and started seeing this problem.

Any ideas?

Hello,

i have a problem with Firefox ESR and the management Webinterface of a telefon system (Auerswald COMpact5200R). The Website works with Edge, Chrome, IE and normal Firefox Releases - but not with the ESR Releases for example 91.2.0esr or 91.1.0esr.

When i open the website it asks for credentials. Then there is a button (think its a new frame), if i click this, it ask again for credentials (if you want to get admin rights). Normal users doesnt have these rights, so they cancel the dialog and get their configuration functions.

If i do this with Firefox ESR - the second popop for credentials show up - and if i cancel it, the frame/website doesnt load further.

I tried different settings for SameSite cookies or network.auth.allow-subresource-auth but (same settings than in normal Firefox releases) it doenst work. Sorry, but i cannot provide a public link for testing to the website, because its an internal management Interface.

What can i check next to get it work again?

Regards, Michael

This has been an issue for quite a while but I simply used a different browser for that one particular failing task. For example on costco.com, on the top right-hand corner, there is a 'Find A warehouse' button. When I enter my zipcode, it loads a new page but doesn't load the search results. Same thing with shopping.google.com. Firefox is able to load the search results, but doesn't do anything when I click on an item to show more info about the listing.

I tried with Troubleshoot mode and the issue still persists.

Please help me. I don't want to leave Firefox.

Hi, I really wanted to like Firefox, but it is just too aggravating when it refuses to open a page regardless of what I try to do. I tried the suggested solutions to no avail. These are regular sites, AAA site to change my address... nope no go. I opened the page on Chrome without a glitch. A government site for the Global Entry application... nope that neither. And many other sites that are NORMAL without any weird anything, just blocked and nothing works at all. I am afraid I will just go back to Chrome, as it is very inconvenient to keep switching for this or that. I am glad I didn't just delete Chrome at all, and left it on my phone as well. I have no clue of what is going on, but whatever you are doing is going overboard indeed. Your solutions DO NOT WORK PERIOD. and who needs the aggravation of trying this or that (to no avail by the way) when there is already so much aggravation to go around in the world as it is. Well this is what I had to say. and I will look into transferring all I have saved in Firefox back into Chrome. So google spies on people.... I got nothing relevant to hide and who knows maybe you do too. Well then, good bye, so long. Don't fault me for giving up, you did not listen to people one bit. Dalila Hardwick

Hello,

I am a Web Developer, fixing a website for my client. After the page is cached in Mozilla Firefox the layout breaks, when I clean the cache everything is back to normal. This issue is only present in Mozilla Firefox, I don't have that issue with Google Chrome.

Website URL: https://www.impeccablex.com/ Please see the screenshots attached, you can see the layout before and after.

I have tried almost everything that I could think of, don't know what to try next. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance! Best Regards, Mario C.

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.
