Hi

Would it be possible to fix the issue of flashing of white screen while opening new tab to help prevent eye strain. It's really annoying and hurts the eyes when in a dark room and using dark mode. The post here describes the problem very well:

Plugincontainer high CPU causing Prime video stutter. I only get this with Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix are fine. This problem has just recently started. Plugincontainer in Hulu or Netflix hovers around 10% but in Amazon Prime it will shoot up to 60% causing the video to stutter. I have process explorer to monitor CPU.

My plugins are: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. Version 1.8.1.1 Last Updated October 29, 2019

Shockwave Flash Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0 Version 32.0.0.387 Last Updated July 2, 2020

Hi all,

In the last couple of days, Firefox has stopped loading any web pages on start-up. When I look at the activity manager on my mac, I see a FirefoxCP WebExtensions task right at the top of the queue using 99 - 100% CPU. When I cancel this task, Firefox immediately starts loading pages as normal. There are also FirefoxCP Web Content and FirefoxCP Privileged Content tasks, but they don't seem to be causing any problems.

I'm running Firefox 78.0.1 on a mid-2012 MacBook Pro with MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6. My only extensions are Adblock Plus, Browsec VPN and Greasemonkey. My Plugins are OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0 and Widevine Content Decryption Module

Any help greatly appreciated.

Forms (such as a newsletter sign up or unsubscribe) do not show up in Firefox on my Mac.

These forms show up normally in Safari on Mac. They also show up normally in Edge AND Firefox on PC and all other browsers that I know of.

I of course use Firefox on my Mac and would like these forms to show up properly on that browser.

Thanks, Amy

When I m using google doc or sheet to edit a document from google drive, I notice that my cursor will freeze for 5-10 sec from time to time. No issues with chrome on the same documents. I never had this problem until the firefox updates in the past few months. I have tried the usual steps such as disabling all plugins, start firefox in safemode but nothing works. The problem is consistent across all documents, even for new documents. Does anyone know of a workaround?

When I am playing media in a tab (youtube, spotify, etc.), if I open a new tab + website to browse, the audio/video in the other tab stutters badly.

This happens no matter what. With add-ons enabled, with ALL add-ons disabled, AND with firefox in safe-mode.

I have uploaded a video of the problem in action:

My computer goes into sleep mode after inactivity. When I wake up my computer, if Firefox was left open and minimized, I can't click on it for one minute to bring it back up. A dinging sound happens. All other minimized windows can be maximized without issues. This is on a brand new HP PC running Windows10.

Hi all, when loading a PDF the first few pages load, and then the rest only load (slowly) once you scroll/click to view them. This wasn't always the case, and started about 4 weeks ago. My internet connection is 50Mbps, and is running at full speed, and my PC has 32GB of RAM. It's not my internet or PC, as far as I can tell.

Is there a fix? Is this a known new bug? Thanks.
