For about a couple of weeks, there has been a lot of delay between what I type and when it actually appears. It's maddening! I have not changed any of my Firefox settings. I did a 'refresh' about an hour ago. I am not seeing any network activity that I cannot recognize. I d/l'd 'Malwarebytes' and ran it..."no threats". MS Defender has always been on & protecting me. I have never had this situation occur before and am hoping for some help (5 to 10 seconds to wait for what you've keyed in is not fun).

I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

So, I use Fn + F7 which should stop or play the last active audio source.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it just refuses to work for one site at time, while the others work fine. So, for example, I have site x which plays audio, and site y which played audio some time ago, both windows open. Sometimes medias keys work as supposed, sometimes it doesn't work for site x for no apparent reason while it works for site y, or vice versa.

To get it to work, I have to spam it, move the tab around to the front (sometimes it works, it seems it gets priority, but it could be just coincidence) or completely close the tab and open another one with the same site. Whatever's causing this, it seems to be random, but it seems to be caused the most when having multiple tabs that can play audio, but not exclusively.

I just switched to Firefox and I don't really want to switch back, so it'd be great if any assistance is offered. On my last browser this wasn't the case.

This is what I've tried to solve the problem, but didn't work: - Go to about:preferences and turn off and then back on media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled - Open your Firefox settings (about:preferences); Uncheck Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface. It is at the end of the page; Restart Firefox; Check that setting again


Additional information: - Here's the site that causes me trouble the most (this is a YouTube playlist loader for big playlists): https://youtube-playlist-randomizer.bitbucket.io/ - I use Windows 11

This isn't strictly related to Hulu but using it as an example: Hulu has some bug right now where it will occasionally suddenly use a lot of CPU power and completely lock up Firefox, and to some degree my whole system. If I manage to "close" the tab, it *appears* to close, but it's very clear that whatever Hulu is doing is still going on in the background. This time I was at least able to open the task manager and kill Firefox – which immediately alleviated the problem, and upon reopening Firefox, the Hulu tab was still there (indicating it never closed).

I don't know if this is possible, especially given I don't know what's causing the bug with Hulu, but it would be nice if Firefox was better able to handle a tab getting out of control like that.

"To protect your security," Firefox requires each to be opened in a new window. This is an incentive for users to switch to Edge or Chrome and stop using Firefox. All .gov pages should be safe to open even if they do not "utilize x-frame options or a content security policy to control whether other websites can embed them."

Hello everyone!!

I've been experiencing a rather "unusual" issue: My Firefox up until version 116.0b8 worked perfectly fine; however, after any updates to versions beyond that, it stopped working.

I've tried the final versions and the betas, but nothing works. I attempted reinstallation and everything else, but I couldn't solve the mystery and remain stuck on version 116.0 beta 8.

What's happening? Every time I try to load a page on any version above 116.0, it either doesn't open or keeps loading in a loop. Yet, if I use another browser or revert to version 116, everything works correctly. This issue does not occurs in others machines.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

Thanks in advance for your help.

We have been maintaining a set of tools for Science Olympiad Code Busters (https://toebes.com/codebusters/) that generate and print tests.

When we print the tests using other browsers (Chrome, Edge) we are able to get consistent formatting and output such that the page fits on the sheet of paper and text is rendered cleanly. However, in the past year or so we have received complaints from Firefox users that it doesn't format and print well.

I was able to confirm that it indeed produces less than ideal output with Firefox and spent several hours to reduce the problem to a single self contained file that I have run through the W3c validator to ensure that there is no un-toward HTML.

I've been able to reduce it down to a small example that has everything contained in a single file: https://toebes.com/codebusters/Samples/firefox_toebes_printing_example.html

If you load the file in Firefox and then print, you will notice several issues: 1) The names of participants table ends up wider than the page. 2) The Score table on the first page is off the right hand edge of the page. 3) The header for the second page (Page 1) is on a page by itself 4) The footer for the second page (Page 1) is near the top of the third page 5) The text for the timed question appears too high on the page 6) The text for the timed question is in a slightly larger font such that it wraps early. 7) Similar problems are on the last page, with the header appearing nominally in the correct place 8) The footer for the last page is on a page by itself.

Note that I have experimented with multiple options for the print scale and margins, for purposes of comparison I set the margins to .5" all around and forced the scale to 100% in all three browsers.

Is there some other option or tweaking that I am missing to get this to work properly on Firefox?

Hey guys. Just bought a new pc with a RTX 4070 ti super GPU. FF is my browser, and when i google i see VSR is supported in FF. But watching videos in FF does not activate RTX VSR, it stays inactive in the Nvidea control panel.

When i use Chrome browser it works as it is supposed to, it says active and i can see the video quality is improved. Is the feature just broken in FF at the moment, or is there some settings i can change in FF to make it work today?

(i checked about:config and gfx.webrender.overlay-vp-super-resolution is set to true)
