Hi, Various Sites (sometimes firefox as a whole) keep crashing regularly. I am running Arch Linux (6.4.12, default kernel) with Hyprland WM on an old i7-7700K with a Nvidia GTX980TI. Apart from Firefox the system runs stable. When doing research, or just browsing text based sites, firefox is also very stable, but on some sites like twitch, youtube, or idle games like "Antimatter Dimensions" (ivark.github.io) the browser (or page) crashes regularly. It also happens in Troubleshoot mode, also after a clean re-install (including deleting /.mozilla in /home) and since various versions over the last couple of month. The latest crash report ID is bp-67ed2673-4ed2-452b-bc63-dc1060230831. I know I'm running a niche system, but I really like my setup and apart from those crashes it's amazing, so I hope you can help and point me in the right direction as to what could cause the crashes. Thanks for your time. KR, rehajel

I have chosen a colorful garden theme for my new Firefox browser but now I can barely see my taskbar and any text above the taskbar. It is all very small and white. The main screen area below is white. I would prefer black thicker text for that area but don't see how to do that in any of the articles I have found. I don't want to make all my text bigger, just the Firefox specific headers. Can anyone help?

Using Firefox today I tried to search for various things using https://oceanhero.today/search.. I got this error message:

"Sorry, there was an error when rendering your search. We were notified and will try to resolve this issue as soon as possible."

But the search engine - which I've been using on Firefox for a long time without any problems - works fine on Bing.

Is there a remedy? Many thanks for any advice.

Recently, firefox added an annoying feature that throws unwanted popups into my face: Website translation.

I want it gone. I can't seem to find any switch to get rid of that garbage in the preferences. I'm not scared of about:config but the best I could find was a list of languages to never translate.

How do I globally and eternally disable website translations?

I am developing a website (using AstroJS, but i don't think that's the problem) and since yesterday I am experiencing issues when opening devtools. Once I open devtools the whole FF tab becomes unresponsive, I cannot even refresh the page until they are done loading. I can change devtool tabs from 'inspector' to 'console' to 'network' etc but especially 'network' and 'debug' tabs are blank.

I run a 'performance' capture and got these results. In the test I have only opened the devtools and switched to the inspector tab which is unresponsive. The CPU usage is at around 90% however, I don't really know how to read the finding and understand what the problem is.

So anyone that can help me understand what is going on here?

WHENEVER i NEED TO CLOSE MY BROWSER FIREFOX ERASES ALL MY TABS. I MUST USE CCLEANER THAT USES THE QUESTION - THIS IS TAKING TOO LONG, DO YOU WANT TO FORCE CLOSE? (BECAUSE CCLEANER NEEDS TO CLOSE FIREFOX TO CLEAN COOKIES) AND THEN THAT WAY IS THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE ALL MY TABS BACK. BUT THERE ARE TIMES THAT TABS GET CLOSE SUDDENLY AND I LOOSE ALL MY TABS.

THIS MEANS THAT THE WAY FIREFOX CLOSES THE TABS IS FAR FROM GOOD, AND THEY CAUSE TO CLOSE ALL TABS, OR THEY JUST HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO IT RIGHT.

DO YOU KNOW ANY WAY TO CONTACT MOZILLA OR FIREFOX TO REPORT THE PROBLEM? IT IS A SHAME THAT A BROWSER DOES NOT OFFER FREE TECH SUPPORT- AND I CANNOT EVEN TELL THEM!!

Using arch's latest version. I recently upgraded my firefox version to 117.0, and can't play any videos from different sources.

The image freezes and is in an eternal buffering state.

I tried downgrading to 116.0 and 115.0, and the issue persists, so it doesn't seem to be related to the latest Firefox version.

So far, I've confirmed the same issue in YouTube and Twitch.

On Twitch, the videos are super laggy. The image freezes, then moves to a different scene, freezes again, and then the same thing over and over.

On YouTube, it always shows as loading. If I try to move it to play a different time in the video, it works for half a second and then freezes again.

The issue still occurs if I try incognito mode, troubleshoot mode and refreshing Firefox. I already tried disabling hardware acceleration (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1206076) and have no more ideas or options.

Thanks in advance!

Since v117 update I noticed pages scroll way more. With one scroll they do double the amount of lines then previously. I thought I was seeing things, so I reinstalled Firefox v116.0 to make sure and confirmed it was scrolling less with the previous version. I found a setting "mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled" set to 'true' by default. Switching to 'false' fixes the scroll amount, but when I was back on v116.0 I checked that setting there and it was also set to 'true' by default, yet no double scrolling. So I have no idea what could cause this issue. Maybe something was 'fixed' with this setting and now it's applied correctly? Or should nothing change with scroll amount when updating from 116 to 117?

Just keep on doing what it is that you are doing.

I am rather old. I picked up Mozilla when it was on X 10. I do not have a complaint. Only dark mode. I had cataract surgeries, the plastic lenses now have cataracts too. Really! The WHITE screen is painful.

But, Firefox seems to work, and it works well. It is well organized, methodical, nothing to complain about. Yes, I am recognizing the spell checker. Yes, I am ranting. Yes, I am done!

Thank you!

All of a sudden, Firefox stopped showing bookmarks toolbar and website address at top of the page; and it stopped showing taskbar at bottom of page. I've attached a screenshot to show what it looks like without these features.

If I scroll over the top of the page, the bookmarks toolbar and website address appear; but I would like them to show by default. And I haven't figured out how to show taskbar at bottom of page without exiting from Firefox.

How can I restore these features.
