Capturing Firefox with OBS - Tab freeze when on other virtual desk, a way to prevent this?

Hello,

For teaching purpose, I need to do interactive presentations with both a regular slide presentation (using pympress), interactive activities through either Miro or Mentimeter both being in Firefox and a few other things (depending on what I teach at the time).

In order to mix those windows on the screen (and also because sometimes those are streamed), I capture all of them in OBS and have a bunch of scenes which organize and size everything depending on what I currently focusing on.

Each of those windows are on a different virtual desk to make it manageable, and thus I am not always on the virtual desk where Firefox is, for example when I am explaining something with slides, I am on the virtual desk with the presenter console. However I often still need to have the content of Miro/Mentimeter on the screen so that I can link my explanation with what students do.

Now the problem I have is that it seems the rendering of the pages in Firefox freeze when I change of virtual desk, and thus students might add things on Miro/Mentimeter and I do not see it because the page is frozen. When I get back to the virtual desk, suddenly all the changes students made pop-up. It's extremely frustrating, both for me and students, as sometimes they asked questions related to what I was explaining before and then I have to go backwards.

Is there any way to make Firefox keep rendering pages when they are not on the screen? Any option? I have tried searching about:config with rendering / refresh, but came up with nothing. When looking that issue online, I found the "Always active Window (Always Visible)" extension which supposedly prevent the hidden property of pages to go to true, but that has not solved the problem.

Any help or tips on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely, Sleris

With recent releases, I've started noticing that Firefox UI freezes seemingly randomly. When it does, the UI doesn't respond to interactions, and there's no visible change in the UI, either - for example, if I switch to a different tab after the UI froze, there's no visual sign of switch happening. However, if I were to alt-tab to another window, then then UI looks as if it had responded behind the scenes. I.e., the tab switch were somehow kept pending until at the point of alt-tab.

I've had this happened on two different machines, both running the latest version (106.0.1), but this was observed even with 105, I think.

FWIW, I'm on Linux; I've tried both with and without hardware acceleration. Unfortunately, I don't have consistent/sure reproducer; not have I observed any particular pattern of interaction that'd lead to this.

I was going to file a bug, but thought posting here before I do that.

Firefox just stropped working for me. Would be unable to load any pages after 5-10 minutes until I restarted the browser. No other troubleshooting worked so I had to refresh firefox and now my firefox private network add on is gone. All my other add ons are still there but I can't re-download private network without paying a subscription, even though I have had it installed for years. How do I access that add on? I don't understand why I would need to pay for something I already had and only lost becasue firefox malfunctioned.

Sometimes when I open Firefox, a new tab opens with the Bing search page. This happens irregularly, but I'd guess perhaps once a month or so.

I have Firefox configured to remember my previous session, and I always have tabs left over from the previous session. So I never see the homepage, but my homepage and new tab page are both configured to be "Firefox Home (default)".

I'm on Windows 10. I have checked my homepage config, about:addons and Installed Programs; there is no mention of Bing. When I type in the Firefox address bar or the search bar, the search uses Google, as I expect.

Any idea why I occasionally get bing.com opening up in a tab when I launch Firefox?

Whenever I receive a software update notice, the browser closes all open links even when I click on Do NOt Update. Today I was researching travel arrangement on a number of sites and all were suddenly closed forcing me to start over with hours of searches. Pissed me off. How do I stop this from happening? If I can't prevent this from happening, will need to cancel use of this browser. Too many disruptions.

I am trying to view a website but the site thinks that I am spam. Mozilla keeps me logged in to the site but I don't want that to happen. And because it happens the site thinks I am spam. But in Private Mode it lets me view the site. How do I fix it in Mozilla so I can view the site without being locked out? I want to erase the auto log in for the site but it is not listed anywhere here on my PC/Mozilla. I tried to contact their admin but I do not get replies from them. I don't even want or need an account there at the site, it's only a forum. this is the site.. https://www.plantedtank.net/

Hey folks, i'm not sure if anyone else has seen this issue.

I have YT Premium for downloading videos when i'm out and about on mobile and laptop, i've noticed on the browser the download option is now missing with the newest Firefox update.

I opened YT in Chrome and Edge and the option is available - obviously I don't want to swap away from Firefox, so thought i'd raise it if others are having the same issue.

I'll also raise a ticket with Youtube to see if they're doing something dodgy.

Firefox Version:

  • 106.0.1 (64-bit)

Addons:

  • Multi Account Container
  • Facebook Container
  • DuckDuckGo

OS: Windows 10 FF version: 106.0.1

This is a new pc, about a week or two old, and I've noticed on a couple of different pages that places that should show a button or a checkbox are showing the html label instead.

Booted up the old pc (running FF version 105.0.3) to double-check and all pages are displaying just fine over there.

I have sync turned on, so both browsers are running the exact same plugins. And I did try disabling all the plugins on the new one just in case, and it made no difference.
