Imaging there is some bug in the audio driver on your operating system Any call you made to any audio-playing API will lead to severe problems (e.g. segmentation fault) How can you use firefox in that environment? How to prevent firefox from calling ANY audio-related APIs?

That buggy audio service on my OS is pipewire (bug still exists in latest version 1:0.3.56) Firefox randomly freezes when a sound is played, and the freeze may lasts for minutes

One day when firefox froze again I opened gdb and attached to it Here is partial output of GDB: [New LWP 43932] [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled] Using host libthread_db library "/usr/lib/libthread_db.so.1". 0x00007fa0f4bb9346 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (gdb) bt

Hello,

After installing Firefox (103.0.2) on a clean install of Manjaro (21.3.7) Gnome (42.4), I started noticing that mouse hover effects such as highlighted tabs, UI of a video-player appearing etc. are delayed after my PC exits hibernation (I am not sure if that is the only cause and if that really IS the cause). Weirdly enough the select menu I used to answer the "Which topic best describes your question?" question to create this post experiences no delay in highlighting the hovered element. Relaunching Firefox fixes this issue temporarily.

To be clear this is no performance issue since everything except mouse hover related interactions are fluid.

Thanks for helping out

I have the home page (aka new tab page) pinned because it is the only way to get the home page to appear after closing all tabs with atleast one pinned tab active. One annoying thing I found is that search results open in the same tab, which causes the pinned new tab page to get replaced by the search results. This is now how bookmarks and shortcuts behave. Can someone tell me how to get search results (from the "awesome" bar) to open in a new tab ONLY when conducted from the home page/new tab page?

I pinned the new tab page as a way of bringing back the behavior of the new tab page appearing after all other tabs have become closed. Since I don't want to close my other pinned tabs, this is the only way for the new tab page/home page to appear after all unpinned tabs are cleared.

However I notice that search results open in this same tab instead of a new tab, which is a problem that is detrimental for pinned tab users. The point of pinning a tab according to mozilla, is to always keep a website or a page available. If search results are opening in the same tab, the original website that was pinned no longer becomes available.

The solution is to add a preference to allow search results to open in a new tab for pinned tabs. Currently browser.search.openintab is the only relevant option, but that doesn't specifically enable the option of search results to open in a new tab from pinned tabs. In order for the pinned tabs feature to work as mozilla advertises, only results from pinned tabs should open in new tabs so that they don't "take over" the original website that was pinned.

Try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fiVciCs8zU which ironically won't play in private! Every time you press the play button you get about half a second of play before pausing. In standard mode it plays just fine.

When I have FF open, then close all windows but still have FF active, I hit CMD-T or CMD-N to bring up a new tab or window and nothing happens. I repeat, repeat, repeat and still nothing. THEN if I click on the FF icon in my dock, all the tabs and windows appear in a cascade of windows or tabs like bam, bam, bam.....

This happens on two MacBook Pros around 2016 vintage. This is a new behavior this week.

Hi, I am having problems with mozilla. I uninstalled mozilla a few weeks ago because I sent my pc to service. When I received it, I tried to restore my profile backup using pasting the files saved in the profile folder. Since then mozilla has become unmanageable as when I open it it is as if it is always the first time, i.e. no history is saved, cookies and also it automatically takes the information (bookmarks, passwords and history) from chrome and puts those into mozilla.

Firefox- You have really screwed the pooch with this update. Half the websites I visit today are broken in some way, and the other half are displayed incorrectly (as in being about 4 pages wide and who knows how many tall). I missed a couple of important bids cause I couldn't get to the links I needed to buy something before they expired. Why was this needed? You can do security updates all day long, but you had to change how every website on the planet LOOKS???? Plus, YOUR crap on the page takes up one third of the screen real estate. I trusted you for years as being NOT Microsoft. Guess that is truly over, as this is an absolute travesty...

Hi,

For quite some time I've been having issues with sound in Firefox, specifically that there isn't any. I've tried some things to fix the problem but haven't found any solutions. The problem is isolated to Firefox as Chrome and other apps will play video with sound. It's also not limited to certain websites. What's interesting is when I open the soundmixer, it shows a green bar going up and down as if there is audio playing. I've also tried troubleshooting mode without any success. Other things I've tried are: - Updating drivers (everything was up to date) - Re-installing Firefox - Allowing Firefox to automatically play video with sound

Any ideas?

Greetings, Gavin W
