As above. I don't really keep track of versions but it's at v93 right now and only this week started to perform extremely slowly with regards to the initial loading of ~90% of the pages I visit, even cached and frequented sites. Once past that it performs as normal. Speedtesting is fine but Browserbench results are horrendous. (This is my first time running this test so I don't have a previous FF result to compare with.)

FF93: 59.497 Chrome95: 119.820 Edge95: 117.970

Already tried: clearing site data and cache, incognito, safe mode, and of course cutting addons to a minimum.

Can someone advise what else can be done or what is going on please? I've been faithful to FF for over a decade and have all my bookmarks, history and credentials saved to this account. However if this is going to be the user experience moving forward - then all I can say is I will not be joining the declining Firefox user base. W10, i5-9400f, 32GB ram, wired CAT6 + 1Gbit Fibre.

Hi all,

When I play (for example) a YouTube or Netflix video in one tab and scroll through social media on another tab and a video shows up and starts playing. The original tab mutes itself (video continues playing). This can only be fixed by pausing and resuming the original video.

Any ideas what may cause this problem?

Hello,

I reinstalled Windows the other day because my PC didn't work anymore. The reinstallation worked but sadly I lost a lot of data because of it, for example my Firefox Bookmark Back Up files from before the 28th of October 2021...

I was sorting my bookmarks and by mistake I imported the bookmarks of 28th of October which I assume was automatically saved.

Now I lost all my bookmarks dating years into my online history.

Is there anyway to get back my bookmarks? Since I am synced and logged into my firefox account I just can't believe everything is gone just because of one button that didn't even ask for confirmation...I am devastated..

Thanks in advance

Hi all, I am the backend developer for a website that our company hosts. I want to have Firefox be fully supported in our site but we are having an issue when we try to redirect from our home page to our SSO okta page.

The error in the console is that it can't find the route to our login endpoint. When I looked into it a bit further I saw that we were getting a 504 gateway timeout while trying to run that section of code.

I know the route exists and works because we have no problems when using Chrome based browsers, and Firefox loads just fine while in private mode.

Any help is appreciated. I will furnish code snippets if needed. I'm just not quite sure how to proceed with figuring out what's going on.

The site is https and we have CORS enabled for it in our Okta server

Any help is appreciated. Please let me know if I haven't provided enough information.

Thanks, Brian O

Hi,

Recently whenever I watch any video, wether it'll be on YouTube, Twitter, Reddit etc. my ping will instantly shoot from ~20 to anywhere from 100-200. I have tried everything from restarting it, removing all my extensions etc. and nothing seems to work.

I have tested it and it only happens when a video plays, even if I minimize the browser it will still happen.

What do you suggest I do? Because I can't use my browser for the main reason I use it for.

Thanks.

When I now hit "file" then "mail to" gmail demands (https://www.google.com/gmail/about/) that I open an account instead of my usual Outlook being used. Historically, I have used a gmail account for other business and both have remained separate programs. I want to return to using Outlook as my default program. It is still listed and chosen by me to be my default app but it is not working that way. Thanks for any and all help.

I have firefox synced across 2 PCs both set to auto install updates. When one has auto updated and I come to use the second, I get a message that my profile cannot be used on an old version and I am required to create a new profile (or exit firefox). I have to then update and re-sync which is very annoying.

Hello, A url with the #anchor not refreshing to proper position. I click on this link UPC on this website page: https://www.b4usa.com/princeton-tec/ and the link opens to top of anchor page, not at anchor position.

When I refresh the page with the anchor: https://www.b4usa.com/upc/#twenty it still does not take me to the proper page position.

The only way to get to the proper position is to right click on the princeton page, most people do not know how to open links that way.

This problem also is occurring on the android phone.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance for your help, Steve Moss

I have one pinned tab that I want to keep the sound muted on because it's a simple game that I play occasionally. The problem I'm having though is whenever I close the lid on my laptop for the night, then reopen it in the morning, the tab is no longer muted. Laptop is set to sleep when closing the lid. I just want to set the tab to mute permanently. Is there a way to do that without adding yet another extension to my growing list of extensions? Or is this unmute behavior not supposed to happen and something is amiss? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Windows 10 Asus VivoBook 1T C drive 1T D drive 16G ram

I have a new Windows 11 installation (Fresh) and all my browsers are working ok except for FF. Whenever I click a link, the first window opens properly but when clicking a second link FF always gives me the error "firefox is already running but not responding. the old firefox process must be closed."

Ofcourse I searched the net and tried all the suggestions on this support page and what I googled. I installed FF Dev Edition, which shows the same issue. I created other profiles, same issue. In the end I tried (several times) to uninstall FF thoroughly (uninstalled, manually removed all installer files, appdata files, and even cleaned the registry) but all to no avail.

I am using Edge now, but I don't want to. Please help!
