My Firefox Desktop browser is showing the mobile versions of some websites.

In another thread, it is suggested to clear cookies to fix this which I did and it does fix it first but it comes back to mobile version again.

I have browsed those websites on Microfot Edge and it displays them as normal with no issues.

Screenshots attahced for websites, hepsiburada.com and temu.com Strangely, both are shopping websites.

Many Thanks in advance.

I have Firefox Sync enabled in my Firefox browser on a few computers. When I logged in to Firefox Sync initially, it did sync-up my new computer with all of the saved bookmarks and history. I am not sure if any of my logins were saved). When I go to websites and login, I am prompted with the dialog to save my credentials, and I say ok, save. But the logins are not remembered. And in my about:logins page shows "no logins found". I don't care about retrieving any old logins, I just want to be able to save new ones and get the default behavior of saving logins working again.

Running Windows 11 on a Dell XPS 8930. Internet download speed is 100Mb/sec. With every update of Firefox it seems to take longer and longer to launch Firefox and load open windows and tabs. Several minutes of the back and forth ball on each tab. I can launch Chrome and its windows and tabs load almost immediately. What can I do to improve Firefox performance, short of abandoning it?

Hello,

I reinstall my windows 11 yesterday and since I cannot log in office. I go through the identification process, then once done I am back to the sign in page.

On chatGPT, when I go to login, I got the error message "We ran into an issue while signing you in, please take a break and try again soon."

Both websites were working fine last week. Also on the same computer I can access these websites using chrome. I tried to clear the cache and the cookies, disable extensions (ublock + cuberghotVPN), lowering security options like disable DNS security and disable tracking security, I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, but I can't fix this issue.

I am a bit out of ideas to try. Anything else I can do to get access back to these websites?

Thanks

While Firefox is loading long, list-type pages, the scrollbar naturally expands in length. I was used to grabbing the scrollbar thumb, pulling it to the bottom (out of browser focus,) triggering further page-loading, and being able to repeat this by merely jiggling the mouse after each load.

Since the latest release (116.0.?), my mouse loses focus on the thumb on each reload, and I have to re-click on the thumb in order to drag down to force the next reload.

This has radically slowed down some of my regular web activities.

Is it something that can be (re)configured on my end?

when I view a stock quote in Google Finance If I move my Windows cursor into the price chart and move the chart cursor to a new date or time the tab will hang. I can no longer move the chart cursor. Reloading the tab will no longer work. I have to delete the tab and then use History to reload it. There is no problem as long as I keep the Windows cursor out of the stock chart area.

I have several tabs with stock data from Google Finance open at the same time. For example. https://www.google.com/finance/quote/TSLA:NASDAQ https://www.google.com/finance/quote/AAPL:NASDAQ https://www.google.com/finance/quote/MSFT:NASDAQ

I am running Windows 11 up to date and Firefox 116.02. This has been a problem for a long time.

Why does the Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu keep changing the value of browser.opaqueResponseBlocking away from the default and selected FALSE setting to TRUE? This makes Firefox nearly unusable since the streaming video keeps being cut off when Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu keeps changing the value of browser.opaqueResponseBlocking randomly during use. Specifically this is the 116.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 that is installed with Ubuntu 23.04. Please advise.

I'm running Firefox 116.0.2 on Xubuntu 20.04.6. A day ago, it started loading at startup for no apparent reason. I don't want it to that. It's not my default browser, and it is not selected as such. It is not listed in any startup folders or in application autostart in system settings. I tried the winregister and auto update fixes using about:config, and no joy.

Does anyone have any suggestions? It's past annoying.

Hello everyone,

I've been using Firefox for quite some time and I always keep a bunch of windows open throughout a few workspaces on my laptop. However, this takes up a lot of resources and looks very messy. So, I've been thinking of writing a script/extension to simply store all the open links in a window to a named list that I can, then, come back to when I need and reopen. That way, I could possibly have different lists, separated by topic and stored in a single place.

I'm sorry if there is an obvious solution for this, I saw a couple of similar questions have been asked before, but none that I could use as reference.

Thank you for your time, have a nice week!

My Firefox is having some problems relating to audio.

If I open a YouTube video, the image will play but there's no sound, on Twitter also, and so on. On YouTube Music the player won't even start, giving the error "An error occurred. Please try again later." I noticed that the stereo icon that shows up in the tab, which allow you to mute the tab, won't show up when I'm playing a video on YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, and so on.

Only Firefox has no sound, it's not muted in the Volume Mixer, neither in the app volume settings in Windows. I've followed everything suggested here here and here.

I think the problems may have started after I reinstalled my graphic card driver, but I'm not sure since I don't use this computer very often. I have a Windows 10 and my graphic card is a Nvidia GT 630, and the driver version is 474.44.

Hi, Recently purchased new laptop with Win 11. I was having trouble downloading anything. Always indicated failure.

I checked some of the responses here for that problem. One of them said to not accept HTTPS only. When I checked my settings, it WAS already set to Don't enable HTTPS-Only Mode. I then set the HTTPS-Only mode to Only in private windows. That setting now allows downloads. Why doesn't it allow downloads when I don't accept HTTPS only?

I am currently facing an issue where videos on websites other than YouTube are not playing. This problem is occurring on browsers like Firefox, Brave, and Opera, but interestingly, videos are working fine on Chrome. I have tried various solutions over the past 2 years, including removing extensions, using private mode, installing web media extensions and codec packs, but nothing has resolved the problem. I am using Windows 10. I would appreciate any insights into why Chrome is able to play videos while other browsers are not, and I'm specifically looking for solutions beyond the usual suggestions like removing extensions or using private mode.

Hey folks,

i am facing issue with high CPU usage on firefox in completely different process other as visible in task manager than my actual process for firefox. is there something wrong with firefox or my system.

This separate process uses more than 60% of my CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 4600). If I close that process in the task manager nothing happens to my current firefox process and i can use firefox normally.

But everytime this separate process starts my system fans ramp up and CPU temps peaks to 70 degrees celsius. and i have to end that process to make it run normally. Thats a quite annoying process to do every time.

I am able to recreate this separate process by:

  1. 1. Plug my system for charging
  2. 2. I was working offline and connect to internet

both the times the separate process automatically starts and uses very high amount of CPU. I even left my system for 2 hours to keep that process running and complete whatever it was doing. but nothing happend. It continued to run for 2 hours also.

Please find a solution for this. I have already tried solutions provided in the forum:

  • Restarting firefox
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Enabling hardware accleration
  • Clearing some user profile data
  • Completely uninstalling firefox and deleting the residual files then reinstalling etc.

but nothing worked.
