I'm currently looking for a job, and I keep my windows separated by category, so I have one that is job search related, and the other that is more general. In my job search window, I have many tabs open for different job postings that I want to hang on to /keep track of. When I want to jump to one of these tabs, I open a new tab and type in whatever its title would be, and then when it pops up in my history I click the "Switch to tab" shortcut to get to it. I find it saves time as opposed to sifting through 50 tabs. In this case, I was trying to find a tab that was opened to a sales job posting, and I clicked switch to tab. However, it took me to a what I think is an entirely separate window, one that I didn't even have open previously, and my jobs window disappeared. I tried to reopen it in History, but it didn't show up. Does anyone know what might have happened here, and how I can recover that window?

Not sure which is the cause. On multiple laptops and desktops after last Windows 11 update and then an immediate Firefox update, the software protection service of Windows 11 goes into high cpu mode consuming 40-50% of cpu when Firefox is opened. Running Firefox version 122.0 (64-bit) version. Tried in safe mode and still having issue. Just an FYI for developers to look into for next Firefox update.

Recently upgraded to a new laptop, Thinkpad X1 Carbon 11th gen. Running a Wayland-based WM. OpenGL is working fine everywhere except Firefox. Works fine in Chrome, Blender, glxgears, Steam games. Firefox 121 gives the following error:

[GFX1-]: Failed to compile vertex shader: gpu_cache_update [ERROR webrender::device::gl] Failed to compile vertex shader: gpu_cache_update

Hello everyone,

i just wanted to post this here so others may find it via google. I had a problem with videos randomly playing with black borders. That was really annoying because sometimes it cut out portions of the video. But after months of trying and searching nothing came out, except the "fullscreen black border 'api-config' fix" wich didn't help me. And now finally I figured it out! It was my damn AMD driver...! It was set to "Home Video" in "Audio and Video", wich enabled "AMD video stabilization".

So in quick summary: When you have black borders while watching video in Firefox; make sure in your AMD-driver, in "Audio and Video", "AMD video stabilization" is turned off!.

Hope this helps someone, bye :-).

Came here after a response on my google play review.

The problem is exactly as the title describes. Playing videos on various websites, such as Youtube, Vimeo, Twitter and Reddit for example, on firefox mobile (including firefox focus) results in the videos playing back with low fps instead of their native fps.

Refreshing the page the video is on sometimes fixes the issue, than once you pause the video and resume it the problem with the low fps shows up again.

Reinstalling doesn't fix it and downgrading to an older version made the problem occur less, but videos would still sometimes play back with low fps.

If screen recordings help figure out the problem please tell me.

Hi,

I cannot launch Firefox profiles starting with version 121. For instance, I use the following command to launch the default profile:

  • /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P default -no-remote

I get the following output in Terminal app after the above command is executed:

  • zsh: killed /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P default -no-remote

When I install the older version, the command works.


Thanks for your help.

Hi, I have been quite satisfied with Firefox for a while, but these problems are ruining the experience for me. 1. The tabs keep refreshing when I switch apps or even when I stay on the browser, just by changing tabs and leaving it open within the session. I usually open a lot of tabs, and this has nothing to do with the inactive ones. 2. I used to be able to play YouTube videos in the background or with my screen off on the Firefox browser on my Android phone without problem. But now the audio keeps pausing and doesn't continue to load, even closes itself after a few seconds of loading. Nothing i've done, including downloading the video playback fix addon, clearing cache, restarting phone and turning off and on data saving mode/background data permission, has fixed this problem.
