When some websites are selected from Bookmarks or via search results the following example error message appears. You don't have permission to access "http://www.nespresso.com/uk/en/" on this server. Reference #18.4d0f0317.1667211938.6b80602. It started about a month ago. I thought that it might be changing to https but reverting this setting did not fix the problem. I have also changed to No Proxy with no effect. How do I fix this?

Every time I try to stream a TV show, it will work for a while, and then it resets my internet. Shutting down the internet, interrupting my show, and then I have to go back and find where I was, watch the same commercials again and again. Particularly NBC TV Show Streaming. This is not happening on Chrome. I have Windows 10. I have cleared cookies, history and cache, reset my internet modem, etc. etc. I have been using computers for 50 years, so don't give me some basic info, I probably already know.

Graphics engine eats RAM as if it is infinite, bringing it to the limit, but if you stop or close the tab, which gave the cache to the graphics engine, then the cache is not released. Please fix this point as it is not possible to sit in the browser for a long time, especially when you turn on the video. As you can see in the two pictures attached, firefox does not free the memory cache after use, which at high load on it will crash (maybe even a kernel panic in the system, but I have not yet led to this). While for edge at the same loads everything is normal.

My favorite web browser is Firefox, but in the recent month it has a problem. almost in all website when i move my cursor from one screen to another, the main screen with the Firefox make flicking images.

and that's really annoying. first i've checked other browsers, they didn't had the same problem. i tried to use safe mode in the Firefox, it did stop the problem, but i can't use safe mode forever.

i tried to uninstall all of the expansions/add ons, unfortunately, nothing changed so what could be the problem??

that's reall starting to annoy me. i would have add video but it seems i can only add pictures so i tried to share my best, but it's hard because they are really quick flicks this is pictures when i try to watch a YouTube video for example

Every couple of days, when I try to open Firefox, I get the "You've launched an older version of Firefox" error message, asking me to close Firefox or create a new profile. I have redownloaded and reinstalled Firefox countless times, and it just keeps happening. I've now tried disabling automatic updates to see if that fixes it, but is there any way to prevent this from happening? I am on macOS Monterey 12.6.1.

After the new 106.0.3 update to Firefox the browser has been slow. This mainly occurs when copying information from a webpage to a word document. To recreate it you can create citations on ZoteroBib and copy them to a word document. It also happens more often when I'm playing music on Spotify web. The music will stutter when I try to copy the information and then resume playing afterwards.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I am using Ublock origin, Bitwarden, Local CDN, and Save to Zotero browser extensions.

Hi, we are a long-time user of Firefox on our Windows Server edition via Terminal Services. I'm wondering if the way/version we are using Firefox is not, correct? Should we be using an enterprise Version that is managed? Our server is getting old, so I downloaded Chrome a few months back to see if the experience would be better. Chrome is showing that we are on a Managed browser, but Firefox is not. It got me thinking that maybe I'm using the wrong version of Firefox. After an update a few days ago, Firefox has been glitchy and will hang. I haven't tried Refreshing it yet, nor have I tried restarting the server. We usually have Hardware Acceleration turned off. We have 24 gb of Ram, we also Dual(2 processors-2.4gHz each) that help our server fly really fast. If secure DNS-DoH is active, Firefox will really hang. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Mac. It seems all the answers to this problem apply to Windows, but I have tried them anyway and they have not worked. Firefox updated the same day that the Mac did. So I have Firefox 106.0.4 and Ventura 13.0. Everything is huge. I cannot see the upper row, I cannot get the fonts to be a normal size, and the sides of the screen are somewhere east and west of the screen. I have tried doing the ui.textScaleFactor. Nothing changed. When I change the fonts in the usual place, it makes no difference. My main screen is also huge. Huge fonts, huge folders, etc. Anyone out there with a Mac that has a solution? I do all my work online, so this is really affecting me. Thanks for your time and effort. Diane

Any webpage I try loading with WebGL immediately crashes, ONLY using firefox. This started happening after I tried manually selecting which GPU (integrated vs discrete) to get better performance. Default settings run off the integrated intel GPU, everything ran at crazy high resources switching to the nvidia so i switched back to default.

Problem started when I switched back to default and no matter what I do I cannot fix the issue. I've tried numerous clean installs, resetting firefox, and finally troubleshooting mode which is where I noticed WebGL is simply disabled but the crashing stopped loading those webpages. All I get is an embedded error that WebGL is not supported.

Searching online, I dont see any current issues, only finding threads that are years old. I have been submitting every crash via about:crashes every day because this is an easily repeatable issue for me, but over a month later and I'm still resorting to other browsers to use these websites, which i DO NOT want to do, i like firefox and want it as my default

When I have not used Firefox for a little while, anything from a few minutes to half an hour or more, if I try to open the browser it takes a few seconds to be ready for use. If I try to use it too quickly it thinks about it and then tells me that the website I am trying reach is unavailable or that the internet is down. Browser is up to date.

youtube hasnt worked in my firefox browser on my mac for well over a year. if I go to the youtube page in firefox it will maybe load the first 1 second of a video and then pause. if i click play it will advance one frame and keep going ahead one frame at a time every time i click play. oddly for that one frame it plays i will hear a split second of audio that goes with it. but the video will not just play.

i have the most updated firefox 106.0.4 I have tried clearing my cookies and cache. i have tried turning off hardware acceleration. I have tried disabling ad blocker for youtube's site. Youtube works in other browsers like chrome and safari.

any thoughts?
