Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.

Hello. For a couple of months now I can't seem to be able to reproduce some videos on YouTube (depends on their format) and no videos at all on Facebook, for example. I have the same issue on both regular and dev versions. I tried many solutions from the forums but no success so far.

I get no warning when auto updates begin installation. I get notified about 1/2 way through the process. The pc (Win 10 pro 64bit) slows to a crawl for 5-10 minutes, then the install finishes, & then it's another 5-10 minutes before the pc is usable.

I would really appreciate a "update is available" notification, which I would agree to at a convenient time. This is really getting to be problematic. Other browsers that do auto updates don't hose my pc.

Thank you!

The following just started a week or so ago. When I start Windows 11 (latest version), Firefox (build 116.0 64 bit) automatically starts and the page that displays is attempting to access one of my Microsoft accounts. I tried toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart. but nothing changed. There is nothing in my Startup folder related to Firefox, and msconfig doesn't list anything as a startup process.

What's strange is that this just started happening. I've used Firefox as long as I can remember, and have never had this issue.

Short of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, does anyone have any suggestion(s)? Thanks.

Logins appear on log-in pages as soon as I type anything in the user box. I have not told Firefox to save any logins or passwords, I do not want it to do that. But on the "saved logins" page after going to the Passwords item on the main menu (three lines) it says No Logins Are Found. None. How do I make sure none are saved, since obviously some are being saved somewhere? And how can I get rid of the ones that appear, so must be saved somewhere? I use Windows 10, and Firefox with the latest updates as of August 2, 2023. Norton 360 is installed. Thank you for help with this.

Whenever I try to open Firefox, it takes about 25 seconds to boot. This behavior can be observed both with all the extensions running and in safe mode. The link to the profiles are shared below.

With extensions: https://share.firefox.dev/3riMPQZ In safe mode: https://share.firefox.dev/3OadE31

I have been noticing this for a few months now. Firefox works just fine after wasting ~25 seconds initially. I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times. Right after the installation, the boot-up can be very fast (less than 1 second). However, after using Firefox for a few hours, the problem comes back.

I am not well-versed in reading Firefox profiler reports. So, please help me figure out what's actually happening in those ~25 seconds.

I am in the United States. My machine is on Windows 22H2 (OS Build) 19045.3208. My version of FFox is 116.0 (64-bit).

My firefox was getting very booged down after months of usage and I complete uninstalled and reinstalled, and now Recommend by Pocket does not show up either on my Home Page, or as an option to add it.

Googling around, the two most common fixes I have seen is to fix this are:

1) Click the Personalize button in the upper right corner of the new tab page and toggle Recommended by Pocket to on, but the option does not appear there. See attached screenshot. 2) Type about:config in address bar, then browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories, and set to true. This was already in effect. See attached screenshot.

Anything else I can try to enable it? I really like it and I miss it.

So I understand why shift right click opens the context menu, and its been useful to me when I need it, but I'd like the option to disable it for trusted websites, or just a toggle I can turn on and off when needed. Even tucked into advanced options. For reference, its an issue when I play littlewargame, a browser based RTS game. Shift is how you que commands, so target firing specific units in order or setting multiple move commands requires me to hold shift, and right click multiple times. Obviously having the context menu pop up every time is an issue. Any chance that could be made into a toggle somewhere? Does anyone know of an extension that adds that option if it isn't built in?

Thanks in advance <3

I have windows 7. On August 1 Firefox automatically uploaded version 116. Now my computer is running very slowly, and is taking a long time to load pages on the internet when I browse the web. I just learned searching the web (I never go any notification from Firefox) that version 115 was going to be the last version for windows 7, so how did I get version 116 automatically loaded onto my computer? How do I go back to version 115 which was working great? I right clicked on the Firefox icon on my desktop and clicked restore previous version and it states there is no previous version there. How do I go back to version 115.

The below live thread has always, since the start of its creation back at the outbreak of the war (so Feb/Mar 2022 time-frame) loaded slow and continues to load slow in FF (all version since then until now) and it loads a lot faster in Chromium based browsers. I've never personally dug into the page loading, but some aspects of how it renders embedded tweets seem super slow, and that's nothing to do with any changes Elon has made recently to Twitter/X... like I said, it been happening since Feb/Mar 2022 when the live thread was first created.

https://www.reddit.com/live/18hnzysb1elcs/

I just think that live thread is a great test case on where Firefox can measure and maybe improve some page load and render times.

YouTube doesn't play, just hangs with the in progress circle spinning. Anybody know what can be causing these issues? I've rebooted my Windows 10 laptop several times, but I can't Firefox to work.

I was using my computer and Firefox all day to watch videos, browse twitter and Tumblr and whatnot until around 15:30 my time, when suddenly Twitter stopped loading my timeline. I thought it was an issue with Twitter or my computer. I restarted my PC twice so far and rebooted my modem (completely unplugged, left it alone for a min and plugged it in again).

I still cant load my twitter timeline, not even in private with all extensions turned off. It does load Tumblr, but like 80% of the pictures/gifs, even profile pictures do not load. When I search for something on Duck Duck Go it sometimes works but most times it just stays blank. Youtube videos either do not load at all, or stop loading/load endlessly at some point. I am still able to navigate the Youtube website tho.

I really do not want to use Chrome, but the latest update is just unusable. Am I the only one?

(I forgot the word for modem, dont judge me.)

I just upgraded my Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 and found that Firefox (which was working perfectly before), does not work properly. Graphics (eg. profile pics on various websites) are not displayed, buttons of websites are often missing, some websites are displayed in a weird "zoomed out" way.

With Google Chrome, I don't have these issues so it does not seem to be a Linux thing...

I already tried reinstalling Firefox, but to no avail...

Help is appreciated as I would not want to migrate away from Firefox which has worked well for me for years...

Regards!

I woke up this morning and realized my youtube wasn't working right. It was loading endlessly and wouldn't play right away when I clicked a video. I thought at first it was a computer issue so I restarted it; but that didn't change anything. Then I thought it was an internet thing, so I switched to my mobile hotspot; but still nothing changed.

I've restarted my computer 3 times, restarted firefox 9 times and done just about everything I could find online. I turned off the recommended hardware settings, went into troubleshoot mode (although I'm not tech savvy so I didn't really understand what to look for), made sure firefox was up to date, cleared my cache and cookies, made sure all my add-ons were up to date; and still nothing.

And it's the same for Twitch. It just loads endlessly and doesn't play anything. It doesn't give me an error or a bug notification; just shows the gracy spinning circle and nothing else.

The only way anything loads is if I turn the quality down to the lowest one possible and have it paused for a minute to let it load on its own.

It works fine in Microsoft Edge; but just not in firefox.
