I get links in professional emails that Firefox never resolves. These come from several different professional organizations, so it is not just one domain. I copy and paste into Chrome and am on the referred-to page in seconds. How can I fix this? I would prefer to not use Chrome at all. Here is an example:

I have been unable to watch youtube videos in Firefox for a few days now. They simply stop after irregular intervalls and if I resume playback manually the video lacks any kind of sound I've noticed the same problem on Floatplane today. Here's what I tried to resolve the issue.

1. Launch Firefox without any Addons. 2. Disable hardware acceleration. 3 Reinstall Firefox and delete all profiles except for the latest one using the profile manager. 4. Installed the latested Nightly Build of Firefox.

Nothing helped. I've switched to annother browser for the time being. I hope this issue can be resolved

Hello,

Thunderbird got updated to 78.12.0 by Mozilla Maintenance Service this morning and I believe Firefox got uninstalled by accident during the process.

The reason I think it got deleted by MMS is because in `C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox` I could see a single file named `tobedeleted` and when I read the log located at `C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Maintenance Service\UpdateLogs`, the last two lines were : NS_main: unable to remove directory: tobedeleted, err: 41 NS_main: directory will be removed on OS reboot: tobedeleted

Luckily my `%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles` were not affected by this issue and I managed to recover my data by reinstalling Firefox.

Best regards,

I have a 3 monitor set up with one below the other two. I auto-hide the task bar in WIN10. When Firefox is full screen on the bottom monitor a small gray bar shows up on the bottom of the two monitors above.

When changing the display and stacking all three windows whichever window is above the full screen will have the same gray bar.

Video calls do not work on Firefox. I tried on Facebook, Messenger and Google Meet - nothing works. On FB and Messenger it ends up with a black screen and "call failed" message. On Google meet I can connect to a call, but I cannot see or hear anybody and nobody can see or hear me. I tried Safe Mode and resetting Firefox - no results. On Chrome everything works. This issue was with Firefox for a long time, but since we conduct more of our life online in the recent year, it became really frustrating. Any fix for that?

Math symbols like "×" and "÷" show up as a game controller buttons. This shows up on for example Wikipedia pages and the DuckDuckGo calculator but not everywhere, and only in the browser as well. This has been happening since the 89 update. I'm guessing this has to do with fonts, but I have no idea what could be causing this or where these symbols are even from or being used for. I have a feeling it's some sort of easter egg but it's getting annoying. I've attached two images of how the symbols show up in my browser.

Since a few days, Firefox pops up the Primary Password dialog every few hours.

I use a primary password since years, and this never happened before. Usually it asks for the primary password at startup and then never again. I don't use Sync.

What could it be? A change in version 90 that I updated to a few days ago?

I see on reddit other people reporting the same problem.

Firefox seems to freeze up after a while (the duration seems random) when there is a tab with video content playing. The audio can be heard to be playing, but the video does not update and the browser UI itself is unusable. This seems to be a new issue since Firefox 90. I have tried refreshing Firefox, but that did not help.

My add-ons are Bitwarden, uBlock Origin, Decentraleyes, Privacy Badger, Auto Tab Discard, SponsorBlock, Nuke Anything, and Facebook Containers. My about:support is at this Pastebin link.

I have just set up a second screen hooked up to my laptop, and the external monitor was set as my primary screen. But, I notice that whenever Firefox is on my in-built laptop (secondary) monitor, the firefox menu, as well as all the extension menus, are really short. The firefox menu at least has a scroll bar, but the others are unusable.

I tried disabling hardware acceleration (which, based on other questions, seems to fix certain other dual monitor weirdness around menus), but it did nothing. Any tips?

Thanks in advance.

Today Firefox container is suddenly causing significant problems. Container, starting this morning, is preventing me from posting articles directly from a news-site, like the WSJ. This is after an update to 90.0.2 (64-bit). In addition FireFox has also become unstable after I log into FB. The instability leads to FrieFox not responding and a hang serious enough to require a force quit of FF followed by a complete restart of my Mac!l

Can't seem to catch it "on camera", so I'll have to do my best to describe it.

When hovering over a canvas element on a certain site, the cursor is meant to change from your system default to a custom one. When doing so, the cursor briefly (blink-and-you'll-miss-it) shows a larger, glitchier version of the custom cursor, and then fixes itself and changes to the custom cursor as expected.

I reported it to the admins of the site, who tell me it might be something to do with my GPU. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, I've tried clearing my startup cache, I've refreshed Firefox, I've ran in safe/troubleshooting mode (in case it was any of my add ons - it was not!), i've updated my BIOS and graphics card (Firefox is up-to-date). I've restarted Firefox itself multiple times. It does not happen in my other installed browser (Brave). I also cleared my cache for that site to no avail.

The only way it seemed to fix was when I ran OBS (recording/streaming program) and tried to record it. I don't know what it did, but it came back when I stopped recording.

Hi,

Our company recently moved away from Chrome so i picked FF as an alternative. However there is a weird bug when I'm connecting to and off VPN (we are using pulse secure client).

Our current setup: The proxy is hosted pac file on company server which is defined in the W10 system settings. When I connect to pulse secure, the pac file can be accessed and I can use internal/external network.

When I connect to the VPN FF decents the change and works fine. However when I disconnect and try to continue browsing, it takes up to 3 minutes for FF to load the pages again.

I'd like to ask if there is an option to modify the time for FF to check for the pac file? the MS Edge does not take more then 5 seconds to detect the change.

Thanks Regards Jan
