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.

I just upgraded to a new computer, with Windows 11 and Firefox up-to-date. When playing albums on the Naxos Music Library, Firefox briefly stops playback at the end of every track before moving onto the next one. It's not just a pause, the play/pause button actually switches back-and-forth before each track. This is very annoying when the album is a continual piece of music and there's not supposed to be a pause there. I got in touch with the NML, but their best suggestion was to try a different browser. I did, and the issue is only occurring in Firefox. I've never come across this issue before, and it doesn't happen on my old (Windows 7) computer (also with up-to-date Firefox).

Every time we use a plugin (e.g. Passportal), fill out the text box then click a different window the plugin screen refreshes, and then the details I have typed or pasted will be cleared. It's like similar to the unloading feature on the browser but this targets plugins and the memory is not used.

Every time I start the browser I get a message on upper right corner that updates are available. When I go into Settings, General, Firefox Updates, it says "Firefox is up to date". I click the button to the right which says "Check for updates" and it comes back with the same message. So why the browser tells me I need an update every time I start it?

This is an extension of my previous question about how the omnibox breaks and fails to suggest commonly visited websites anymore.

(old question: My omnibox is just permanently broken for it seems one website. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1365241)

I erased browsing and form & search history. Now, 'gmail.com' never becomes suggested, despite that I visit the site compulsively.

My previous question seems to suggest that something in my profiles broke... again.. and I'll have to cobble together and cannibalize a fresh profile's files.

Does anyone understand wtf is going on...?

For some reason yesterday Firefox stopped opening PDF documents using Acrobat. I have checked the settings and Acrobat is set as the default application. I tried changing this to "always ask" it made no difference and forces saving the file.

I read various articles on this forum and have opened the profile folder and deleted/renamed files. It didn't work. I've cleared the cache. It didn't work. I've tuned up it didn't work.

It's becoming very cumbersome and annoying. I don't want to save every file before downloading it, I want PDF files to open in Acrobat

Hello,

I use Outlook on the web, when I copy the contents of an email, then copy the contents to a new message, and I start typing, when I type a "U" or sometimes another letter, the message goes away and Firefox brings up a new blank message. Also, when I type a "U" it will just stop and not let me type any further. I reset Firefox, and cleared all cache and cookies.

I also tried do this using Chrome and Edge and have no issues. I'm using 99.0 (x64)

Regards,

On the new print page for Firefox, not all of the paper sizes are showing up under the paper size list. We use a receipt printer and a label printer with custom paper sizes. They show up when you click Print Using System Dialog, but not under the new print menu. And it seems as if you can no longer default Firefox to print using system dialog. It defaults to the wrong size and not what we have it set up for under the printer settings. Anyone know how this can be fixed? We print a lot of receipts each day and it is very annoying. Thanks!

I have a hard time trying to analyze firefox's memory snapshot. 1. I cannot change the view. (There should be 3 views available). After having taken the snapshot: only tree view is available. When comparing two snapshots, the view changes to Aggregate. From then on, only the aggregate view is available. However, the "group by <type>" also does not allow a selection.

2. The Information I get is very highlevel. Chrome provieds much more details and better filters. Is there a possiblity to see more details? I'd like to compare Chrome and Firefox since we know about applicaton memory leaks in Chrome. The goal would be to compare the two browsers.

I have the same Issue with Firefox on Mac (Intel) and WIndows (Portable Apps). Is there a knows bug or workaround?

Thanks in advance Stefan
