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.

For years, I've had Firefox open specific tabs- about 5, which I use for work. All of a sudden after some update, it stopped doing this. I go into settings and don't see that option anymore. Am I missing something or did they stop that feature? It's a pain to type in my necessary tabs each time.

I've been using multi-account containers for a few months now, and loving it. I use the no-container firefox for work, since clicking on links in other apps goes straight there. So I have a personal container, financial container, shopping, and media.

The problem usually occurs with financial sites, that have a lot of redirects in their login page. For my privacy, I won't list which ones, but they are major financial institutions with fairly "slick" web pages (slick as in very annoying and overly complicated...).

Even setting "always open in container tab" doesn't seem to do the trick. I get stuck in a loop where the login page fires, then it seems to "break out" of the container tab, before redirecting back to the login page. The tab color goes from green to regular grey and back to green. Any ideas on how to fix this? On some pages I'm able to set the "always open in container tab" option on the intermediate pages, but others I cannot. Seems like when the login goes through a proxy or something I can't make it work. Any ideas?

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).

The Firefox Color on my Mac that I've been enjoying for years now just suddenly quit on me. Every time I open the browser the colors I've created have to be reloaded. This is very irritating and not worth it every time you come online, especially since I've changed nothing that could have caused this like add another extension or delete cookies or anything - it just changed on me for no reason. https://color.firefox.com

I leave tabs youtub-tabs open when I close Firefox. when I open it again the tabs could be loaded. I did this when I upgraded to 98.02. After upgrading the tabs I left open work fine, however when a new tab opens I get a large blank section where the video should be . There is no indication of a video present . I switch to a tab before I upgraded it plays perfectly. I am running windows 7 pro ver 6.1 build 7601: serv pack 1 on a Toshiba Tecra S11 with 4 gig ram and a 500gig SSD .

Hi Firefox staff,

This issue started ever since I updated my Firefox to version 98.1 and 98.2

Whenever I switch monitors or tabbed out while using another program on my desktop. The YouTube video will freeze and stop playing. I noticed this when I was livestreaming. The video seems to work fine on my end and I hear the audio however, my watchers in the livestream cannot hear or see the video. This never was a problem in the past. The freezing happens almost instantly when the window is not selected.

I have already tried to update to the latest and refresh to Firefox default settings in attempt to fix this. Enabling and disabling hardware acceleration doesn't change anything.

I have not tested this with other video players, but I do know it is apparent with YouTube. Please let me know if there is a manual fix to this or if Firefox needs a patch update to wait for :(

EDIT: I would like to delete my question I think I fixed the issue.

When locking the screen for a few minutes and logging back in, Firefox freezes (for roughly 20 seconds or so) - it is completely unresponsive, the window doesn't redraw when resized, etc.

This does not happen, if I lock the screen and log back in immediately.

If I log back in immediately this freeze does not happen and the terminal output is: ``` [GFX1-]: GFX: RenderThread detected a device reset in PostUpdate ```

When I leave the system locked for some time and back in Firefox freezes and the terminal output is: ```

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".

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...?
