Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Na mijn overgang naar Firefox 96 blijk ik problemen te hebben met het benaderen van verschillende websites, waarbij DigiD-gebonden websites. Zodra ik een DigiD-gebonden website opvraag krijg ik de foutmelding "Beveiligde verbinding mislukt". Ik heb Firefox gedeïnstalleerd en weer geïnstalleerd; ik heb Firefox gedeïnstalleerd, alle Firefox-registervermeldingen ongedaan gemaakt, en Firefox weer geïnstalleerd; ik heb de oplossingspagina voor de foutmelding "Beveiligde verbinding mislukt" gevolgd, TLS 1.0 en 1.1 geactiveerd. Niets helpt. Ik gebruik Bitdefender als Internet Security. Omdat het allemaal wel werkt met de browsers Edge en Vivaldi, kom ik tot de conclusie dat het aan Firefox ligt. Echter, op mijn Macbook zit ook Firefox en Bitdefender; daarop werkt het allemaal wel: ik kan DigiD-gebonden websites zonder meer benaderen. En ook op een andere pc, waarop Firefox en Bitdefender zijn geïnstalleerd, werkt het allemaal. De conclusie zou dus moeten zijn, dat het aan mijn pc ligt. Ik gebruik Windows 10, geheel up to date. Graag suggesties hoe het kan worden opgelost.

A while ago I formatted my computer, and installed FireFox for the first time. Ever since installing FireFox, I noticed an issue which has been a constant source of frustration, when I rewind any YouTube video the playback volume changes to a lower value, until I rewind again.

I tried looking online, this is the closest match I've found, but there's no solution there

I tested this issue on different browsers (Edge, and IE), no problems there. I tried disabling extensions, no change. I tried resetting FireFox, no change. I made sure that Windows doesn't automatically adjust system volume. I tested this issue on different Video platforms, no problems there.

I use YouTube when I practice (music), so I rewind a lot.

Any help is very appreciated.

Hi Support, I am now so frustrated with Firefox that I want to go back to Chrome.

I have been using Firefox for years and have not had major issues yet.

A couple of months ago my hard disc died and I had to reinstall Windows 10 and everything else. Since the reinstall I keep getting the The connection has timed out error every time I load Firefox and it sometimes take 10 to 15 minutes before I can surf the web.

I have Firefox installed on my Laptop and Work PC and don't have the issue with them, only this PC. All settings are synced and there are no differences between the Extensions etc. which are loaded.

On this PC I have Zone Alarm and the other two, Norton. What I have tried: 1. Changed proxy to auto-detect proxy settings for this network 2. Zone Alarm, checked that Firefox is allowed - removed the settings and it is now a Super Trusted and all functions allowed. 3. Disabled all Extensions - yes then it seems to work, but why does my Laptop and Work PC not have this problem with them enabled? 4. have tried a couple of other recommendations but I cannot remember what they were.

But still no success. Any Ideas?

When watching some streams on Youtube on Firefox, my graphics card will boost to max clocks and down over and over, in turn heating up my gpu over and over and eventually reaching the point where my card heats up enough that the fans turn on. This causes my MSI Afterburner gpu temperature curve to look like a continually rising set of sharp shark teeth.

This issue seems to not affect all Youtube streams, but most of the ones I watch. It does not occur when hardware acceleration is turned off. On Chrome and Edge this issue is not present even when watching the same stream and with hardware acceleration turned on.

Watching streams on Youtube should not heat up a card this hard and boost clocks over and over for no good reason, and I hope the Firefox team can resolve this as quick as possible.

I have an account where I have addons that I published and support. I have 2 factor authentication. But I moved to a new iphone (the whole data was copied to a new mobile) BUT google authenticator doesn't copy all keys. So now I can't access Firefox account. I had firefox log in on another device, I have even a page opened with all my addons on the screen, but if I try to open settings - it requires me to insert the code. I don't have it. and FAQ says that's all, create a new account. The best solution would be: - user lost keys? - freeze the account for 1/2/3 months. If there is no activity, reset the 2nd authentication.

Why not? Why do we need to create new account? How can I move all my addons to the new one?

Hello,

Around a week ago (ish), I tried to play a GIF on Firefox. The GIF wouldn't load, Firefox became very unresponsive and it would occasionally fullscreen itself (Removing the taskbar) for a brief moment before changing back. It would keep this up until I force closed it. I went to load a Twitch stream after loading Firefox again, and the chat would work just fine, but the video wouldn't load. The micro freezes (Loading symbol next to mouse pointer) and the fullscreening would happen again. I tried a computer restart and things were fine for a few days.

Today, the same issue happened with Twitch streams, even though I watched one yesterday with no issues. I tried a restart, but the issue persists. Everything seems to work fine on Chrome.

Also, games seem to work just fine. I thought the load time on one may have felt a little slow, but that could just be the game, but I felt it was worth mentioning.

So far, I've tried: - Using Chrome (Everything works fine there) - Using Firefox in troubleshooting mode - Disabling hardware acceleration - Refreshing the startup cache - Updating my GPU drivers - Ensuring Firefox is up to date

Any ideas? Thank you for any help.

I have Firefox 97.0 on my iMAC and 97.0.1 on my Mac Book Air. Both running iOS 10.13.6. Schwab.com pages are displayed correctly on my iMAC, but only partially on the Mac Book Air. The Firefox settings appear to be the same. I thought the problem was related to the resort WiFi but it is the same at home on Xfinity.

Safari has no trouble with Schwab.com pages on the iMAC.

Any thoughts on overcoming this problem?

New Update for Mac for Firefox does not allow me to print checks which requires a preview of the check I am going to print. I have to switch browsers to use my Quickbooks. I have always been able to use Firefox until this last update. I also received and invoice that allowed me to download to a PDF, but it did not allow this to happen.

Since v97 (approximately) the print dialog panel has not worked properly. None of the drop-down menus work in the control box on the right. For instance, I can't change the print destination to PDF, I can't change the paper size to A4, it's stuck at 'US Letter' (a size of paper that is virtually unobtainable in GB), I can't change the pages I print, it's stuck at 'all'. The only controls that work are Copies, Orientation and Scale.

I've done all the Troubleshooting steps in the Help pages but nothing has changed the defective behaviour of the print dialog, either for the better or for the worse.

Can you advise?

Thank you,

Alan Boyd
