Please find below jsfiddle for reference

jsFiddle for Mozilla Firefox -- http://jsfiddle.net/ranu_mandan/EBmdf/

Javascript (FF)

var c=document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");
ctx.font="30px Arial";

var counter = 0;
c.addEventListener('DOMMouseScroll',function(event){

    draw();

    return false;

}, false);

function draw(){   

   var j = ++counter;
   for(var i = 0; i < 10000; i++){
    ctx.clearRect(0, 0, c.width, c.height);
    ctx.fillText("Hello World " + j ,10,50);
   }

 }

jsFiddle for Google Chrome -- http://jsfiddle.net/ranu_mandan/mk5rZ/

Javascript (Chrome)

var c=document.getElementById("myCanvas");
var ctx=c.getContext("2d");
ctx.font="30px Arial";

var counter = 0;
c.addEventListener('mousewheel',function(event){

   draw();

   return false;

}, false);

function draw(){   

  var j = ++counter;
  for(var i = 0; i < 10000; i++){
   ctx.clearRect(0, 0, c.width, c.height);
   ctx.fillText("Hello World " + j ,10,50);
  }
}

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<span>Scroll on below canvas</span>
<br/>    
<canvas id="myCanvas" width="600" height="100" style="border:5px solid #d3d3d3;">
Your browser does not support the HTML5 canvas tag.</canvas>
</body>
</html>

Now try Scrolling fast using mouseWheel on canvas on above fiddles , you will find numbers are skipped in Firefox , whereas Google Chrome renders smoothly without skipping the numbers.

How to make rendering similar to Google Chrome in Firefox browser ?

Tab Add-ons Affecting Middle Click

Earlier today I was fine with Firefox 4 and an older version of Tabmix Plus. All I can remember doing besides checking email, etc., is updating AVG virus definitions. But, suddenly, the middle click stopped working to open links in new tabs (I do not thing AVG did this. I update definitions all the time). It works when I want scroll with it and I see the little up/down arrow thingy, but no clicking, not even from one of my bookmarks. Ctrl + right click doesn't open tabs anymore either.

Disable TabMix Plus, however, and it works fine! Download newest version of TabMix Plus and it doesn't work. I've installed and uninstalled at least 5 versions from different time periods and it blocks my middle click ability each time. I've restarted, disabled AVG, tried this, tried that, searched online, everything.

Next, I downloaded the newest Firefox (FF12) and had the same problem. I found a TabMix alternative, Tab Utilities 1.2, yet the issue persists.

I have NO other add-ons enabled. I've never had GreaseMonkey, but today I downloaded an update GreaseMonkey had to try to fix TabMix (GM 0.9.11) but still nothing. And it's working perfectly right now, but that's because I don't have a tab manager enabled. Help!

I updated to 17.0 today, and suddenly ClearType (what a joke!) is forced on, and I see no way to get rid of it. Seriously, ClearType is ugly and it makes it much harder to read webpages. This is the entire reason I refuse to install IE 9.0. Help?

OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit Browser: Firefox 17.0 32-bit Auto-updated 11/21/2012

ClearType was off in 16.0 and earlier. If it can't be turned I will have to revert.

Probably around once per day I get this issue with Firefox. I will always be working in FIrefox when it happens. The program will start flashing on and off (as if I was selecting and then deselecting it in the taskbar). It will be doing this more than once per second. The issue continues until I shut down firefox. If I click onto another program, the problem will stop occurring in firefox but WILL occcur with this new program instead.

I have tried unistalling and reinstalling firefox to no avail.

I'm experiencing this problem for about a week. The tree stays frozen in the state which it has earlier. If I click on a fold/unfold triangle the triangle is rotated but the tree doesn't get folded or unfolded.

With old Firefox 16.0.2 the problem is the same.

I'm a Thunderbird add-ons developer myself, so if you need some additional details I can collect them. I've looked at Error Console and haven't seen any messages while poking around the bug.

Since installing windows 8 firefox keeps freezing. I waited to install FF17 but even that freezes the very same way.

  • The only way I have found to solve it is to restart the computer and once in a while it fixes the issue till the next restart when the same happens again.
  • I have used FF for long and never saw this till I installed Windows 8 Pro few days ago.
  • I opened FF in safemode and the exact same happens so I guess this is not an add-on problem.
  • I reseted my FF and same problem is there.
  • After resetting, I opened FF in safemode, and still problem is there.
  • This happens when I open a webpage (most pages but not all), and after a long freeze FF says "Unresponsive script" and depending on the webpage gives a line, for example this when I tried to open www.BBCpersian.com:

Script: http://node1.bbcimg.co.uk/glow/glow/1.7.3/core/core.js:19

Firefox constantly crashes and it's getting worse. It seems to be more and more frequent. Also, before it crashes it often spends hours or longer hanging, lagging and using excess memory (often 1-1.5g of ram).

2 weeks ago when I switched on my pc (Windows XP) I had very poor screen resolution, which I was unable to fix other than by resetting to an earlier day. I also was having problems with McAffee saying that it couldn't access my pc to upload files. Eventually, I asked McAfee to sort the problem, which they did by taking control of my pc. I am now getting messages today saying that updates from McAffee have been uploaded satisfactorily. However, each time I now switch on my pc I get the same very poor screen resolution which I can only fix by resetting to a previous date.

Have you any ideas as to why this should be happening and more importantly how I can fix it.

Sinds 1 week werk ik met Windows 8. Alles werkt erop, ook firefox, alleen krijg ik in het menu allemaal raren teksten en kleur problemen. Deze problemen doen zich ook op bepaalde websites zoals Raptr.com voor. Dit probleem heb ik alleen met Firefox. Bij andere brouwsers heb ik nergens last van. Bij 16.0.2 viel het nog wel mee, maar bij 17 is het erger geworden in plaats van beter.

Wat kan ik doen om Firefox toch werkend te krijgen in Windows 8

So. I was a pretty loyal chrome user since it's Beta. Noticed that it used a lot of processes for each tab I had open.

I didn't like that.

So I installed Firefox.

Noticed that Firefox is very slow. I mean VERY SLOW. Youtube videos? 5+ mins to stream a 3 min video. If I am lucky.

Gmail? Last attempted login took 5 refreshes, and still took over 3 and a half mins before it finally let me in.

Tried these same things on Chrome. Got into Gmail in under 5 seconds. Youtube videos? Don't even need to let it stream ahead. Played the same video flawlessly.

Tried everything in the troubleshooting to make this slow issue go away. Don't like Safari, hate IE like it will give me the plague. Opera is... meh. Okay I guess. Marginally better than Firefox at this point. I'm sorry to say, I am going back to chrome. None of your solutions fixed the issues, or even offered marginal performance increases to warrant holding out hope that there may be something just around the corner to make this a great browser again.

So. With that said, Firefox, we were once good friends, but like a business investment, it's time to cut my losses and move on to bigger and better things.

Ciao.
