Hi! I am opening this help, because for some months, that I have been using Firefox on Kubunto, it is impossible to log into Google. YouTube is the way I left it in Print. And it has a plogin that doesn't update for anything. Which is the Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.

This has brought me a lot of frustration when using firefox on Kubunto. But as I use the system only on the Pen Drive, I have no plans to install Chorme. Because I need the system only there and now.

Of course, I tried in many ways to correct my problem. I even formatted this Kubunto system. I tested with other linux systems. But they all have a problem with the same plugin, in firefox.

Could someone help me with this problem? I always used everything normal. It only started to happen about 3 months ago.

Dear community,

I know that this seems to be an hot topic for questions, but after read some other messages I am confused on hot to proceed. This is my problem:

On a fresh installation of an Operating System on my laptop I tried to enable the firefox synch functions. After inser the password I was waiting for the pin code on my mail to certify my identity. This mail returned (I don't know why) and now my synch functions are locked. I am able to log in with my account: <jonathan.cacace@gmail.com> but I am not able to start synch. How can I solve this issue?

Regards,

JIT/GC/Cycle Collection hanging periodically

After my browser being open for a while, usually a few hours, Firefox starts to get some major hanging in some tabs; I can have two windows open, one with a youtube video playing and another with like reddit or something else, and when browsing reddit, I get major hanging when interacting for around 7 seconds.

I recorded a couple performance profiles to see what's causing it, and it seems to consistently be a very long JIT or GC call, also labelled as "Cycle Collection" in the waterfall view.

I saved the profiles and I can upload them, but I'm not sure if they come with any private info so I'm reticent to add it to this thread.

I've watched the Task Manager (the Firefox one and the Windows one) while this is happening and memory usage in the Windows task manager seems to rise quickly over a few seconds then suddenly drop back down. I'm not sure if that's relevant. In the Firefox Task Manager I didn't see anything particularly salient other than energy usage spiking up just after the hanging is over.

This doesn't only seem to happen on Windows because it also happens on my Linux laptop occasionally as well, in a very similar manner. I didn't collect any evidence on Linux yet.

This has been happening for quite a while now, on multiple versions of Firefox in a row. I'm using 79.0b3 Developer Edition right now on my Windows machine.

Closing and reopening Firefox usually causes things to clear themselves out and I don't get such long hanging for a while.

I would expect JIT and GC to happen in much smaller chunks to avoid hanging, it's strange that it takes that long for one call.

Hi!

I've added a new device and am trying to synch it (my new laptop). My account shows everything synched (history, bookmarks, log-ins). However, none of my previous history is showing up. None of my old bookmarks are visible.

Either something didn't work right with synching, or (much worse) all of my Firefox bookmarks, history, and log-ins have been lost. I have no way of knowing what the problem is, since everything shows as being correctly synched on my laptop when I view my Firefox account.

Please advise.

Thanks!

Jeff

Hello!

I usually create a private window by right clicking the pinned Firefox icon on my Windows 10 taskbar. Recently, I've noticed that when I do this, I am no longer able to immediately type into the search/URL bar. I've dug through the settings - I did find some items that sounded relevant, but they did not change the correct behavior. When bringing up all my windows I see that the previous tab is still has my cursor despite the private window being in front of the previous tab. I now have to click on the private window before I'm able to type.

Any idea what changed?

Update to the most recent Firefox Browser Version unsuccessful. 'Automatic update' option is active, but I receive a failure message like "... could not be updated to the newest version". I'm stuck at version 69 or so. Manual update equally unsuccessful - I tried the commonly known tips already. Windows 8 PC, active user profile is not 'administrator' (this was not a problem in the past). P.S.: I'm sending thsi message from a different PC (... wher updating Firefox no problem) - so educated guesses below may be misleading

When I upgraded to Windows 10, my default browser was reset. I've followed the simple Firefox instructions to reset my default browser to Firefox, but have been unsuccessful. That is because Firefox does not appear on the list of browser options that the Firefox instructions show will appear when I click on Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is there, and one other besides MS Edge, but no Firefox. How can I set Firefox as my default browser? This is getting aggravating. Thanks!

I went to use Firefox. A message pops up wanting to know if I want to make Firefox my default browser. I thought I all ready had. ( This problem started after Firefox did an update ). Anyway, I clicked "yes". I am taken to a page on my computer that lists all the Aps I have. Firefox was listed but when I clicked on the Apt nothing happened. I tried again and now Firefox is not even listed. How can I make Firefox my default browser if it is not even listed? I am using Firefox to contact you now. The only thing listed is Google Chrome.
