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.

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

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.

Edge and Chrome directly open embedded government pages, such as https://www.nifc.gov and https://hazards.fema.gov/nri/map, that "Firefox Can't Open." "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."

Strange Text Formatting on Next Level Gaming Store (Firefox) - Help!

Hi everyone,

I recently noticed some strange text formatting issues on [[Next Level Gaming Store|https://nextlevelgamingstore.net/]] while browsing with Firefox. Specifically, the descriptions for some of the game assets seem to be jumbled or overlapping in weird ways. It makes it hard to read what each asset actually offers.

I've cleared my cache and tried a different browser (Chrome), and everything looks fine there. So, it seems to be a Firefox-specific issue.

Anyone else encountered this on Next Level Gaming Store with Firefox? Maybe there's a setting I can tweak to fix the formatting?

Thanks in advance for any help!

My Firefox browser is so much slower than the other browsers I use. Is there a way to improve the speed at which my Firefox can operate? It just takes longer to load sites and to navigate within those sites. It just seems to be a speed thing. My Firefox does not crash or go just hay wire, just has slow processing. The video's I watch on YouTube also are slow and stall at times. Can someone at Firefox help? Thank you.
