I've been noticing a consistent issue specifically with Firefox causing my mac to black screen/shutdown involuntarily.

It happens specifically when I use the zoom-in function on firefox web pages (the pinch zoom).

Other times when it doesn't black screen, firefox would sometimes have this pixelated appearance (basically random squares interspersed around a web page at times) after I try zooming in.

Anything I could do to help prevent this problem?

Hi.

Is there a way to display a column in the bookmark manager (Ctrl+Shift+O) which would show in which folder each particular bookmark is?

Is there a way to search for bookmarks (in the bookmark manager or the bookmark sidebar (Ctrl+B)) by specifically excluding certain (bookmark) folders (e.g. MySessions, Save for Read Later, BSP2 trash folder, etc)?

If the above is not available, please kindly consider those ever since important features.

Thank you very much :)

If I lock my machine for more than a few minutes and then log on again, it's always the same. I unlock my system and feel some kind of slowness in Firefox. When I switch from the currently open tab in Firefox, the new tab is highlighted in the tab bar, but the content part of the window is frozen. If I quickly open htop, I can see that the main Firefox process is suddenly using about 130% of my CPU. The only solution I have found is to quickly open htop after unlocking the system, send a SIGKILL to the main Firefox process and reopen it. This way the freezing, slowing problem is nowhere to be seen.

I am running Debian 12 with Firefox 115.4.0esr (64-bit). I have more than enough RAM and CPU.

On all windows in Firefox, both normal and private, I get what looks like brushstrokes over the text. Generally they disappear when I move the cursor, but they also appear and disappear without mouse moves. I have the same extensions running on other PC's but don't get this happening, only on this newly-built PC. Using Windows 11 version 22H2, Firefox ESR 115.4.0 64-bit. In the sample the brushstroke shows about 80 % down the page. It disappeared after about 30 seconds, and other appeared later. While writing this, the same kind of thing was happening on this page. Extensions Ecosia and Ghostery.

I'm trying to set the download location to a different drive, containing the current username. For example, if my username is Brett.Michaels, I want my default download directory to be G:\brett.michaels. Other browsers have a variable that is usable like {user_name} however I can only find reference to {home} for Firefox, which does not allow me to alter the drive. I've tried using Windows-based environment variables to no avail. Perhaps I'm missing something?

Thanks!

foe helper won't install; i was using the last version; the new window for the Halloween event didn't show up; no update available; i uninstalled/reinstalled to get from v3.2.9.0 to v3.3; it added but doesn't work; either fix the new version or give me back the old version;

and don't say contact helper:

The new version is uploaded but not released by mozilla... Please be patient.

by the way helper won't reinstall at all ... Chrome has already released the version although both were submitted almost simultaneously. In an emergency, you can use Chrome for a few days. github.com/mainIine/foe-helfer-extension/issues/2693

Hi,

I have a problem with youTube. I've always been able to access my channel sections simply by clicking on the section title with no issues. However, since last night, that is not working. Now, the only way I can see all the playlists in each section is if I right-click and open in a new tab.

Any ideas what's up? As far as I'm aware, it's not a connection problem and I've cleared the cache etc. Using a Mac.

It's a real pain having to open sections in a whole load of different tabs. Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated! Also, I'm not very tech-savvy :(

Many thanks, Maroulita

As the title says, Firefox 115.4 ESR and previous versions has DRM or HDCP that causes my external monitor to go black for a few seconds when video is attempted to be played for "some" sites such as MAX and HULU. It has taken me a LONG LONG time to track this down. Here is what I know.

  • This only happens in Firefox, not Edge for example.
  • With DRM off, or Wildivine off, no blank or black screen. FF will not play videos at Hulu or MAX in those cases, but also does not "disconnect" the signal to the external monitor.
  • This is 100% repeatable.

Now I dont want to muddy the waters so someone can point fingers at the issue being somewhere else such as firmware, drivers, etc., but I also want to share as much as I have found.

I am using a Lenovo laptop (my only PC) through a Lenovo Ultradock to an external Dell Hi Res monitor. The issue happens with either DP or HDMI connections. Cables are new, high speed and high quality and have been swapped out several times. Again, ONLY happens with Firefox

But... if the laptop is using the internal screen, it does not happen. So somewhow, perhaps, Firefox with DRM is going out to check the monitor to be sure it will display HDCP and that is when it blanks until FF is sure this will work, and the screen returns.

I am 99% sure of all this after updating video drivers, dock firmware, etc, etc, etc.

Can you help? I'd appreiate solving this one.

~Bob
