For several weeks now: When I click on a link in Google search it stalls out with a Google address and a blank window. A lot of web pages either show a blank window or don't load completely until I reload them. These things don't happen every time but far too often. The only firewall and anti-virus I use is Windows Defender.

Windows 10 with latest Firefox. Adguard Adblocker and standard enhanced tracking protection. T-Mobile Home Internet Normal download speeds over 140mbps and upload speeds of over 40.

The attached screenshot is what happened when I first came to support looking for help. The screenshot is taking a long time to upload.

When I go to disneyplus.com Firefox display a black window, no words or images, just a black screen. Clicking refresh produces the same black screen. Disneyplus loads fine on Chrome, ME, and even Firefox Nightly. Running Win10 Pro, 64-bit, all updates done. No issues with any other site. It used to work just fine. I've closed everything, restarted, checked for blockers and other settings. Firefox 92 (64-bit). I restored Firefox back to defaults and that didn't work.

Macbook Pro 15-inch, Late 2008 Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit) mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Problem is manifesting when I try and use Wordpress websites. Some fail to load or take some time. When editing in the backend - same issues, and when using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme on page editing does not work. Cannot open settings for modules, hovers over editable areas not behaving.

Looked at Console and it is showing this error repeatedly. Also showing many other errors too with Chrome and various OS functions.

9/15/21 11:56:25.614 AM firefox[1063]: stat on /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/eq2ony84.default-1556047105747/weave/commands.json: No such file or directory

First, what is the error and can it be fixed.

Second, would it be having any effect on the issues described.

Struggling to get my work done. Thanks for your insights.

The issue occurs after viewing a YouTube video in full screen and returning to the subscription home page. The top of the home page no longer appears at the top, it's missing and the script is displayed to the left of the monitor screen where it's partially blocked. The glitch is present on all subscription sites recently visited, not an isolated case.

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.9 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Pen and touch No pen or touch input is available for this display

GTX 1070 GPU 8Gb

This issue is also present on my Thinkpad running Firefox 92.0 64. Different graphics system.

First image shows the displaced content, the next image, after pressing F11 to resolve, is the correct content.

Tried the suggested fixes to no avail, last try was a Firefox re-install which didn't fix the issue. This glitch was not present before the most recent Firefox update.

The work around is to press F11 to restore the display to its proper order.

Thanks for any help.

I have Windows 11 IE with all available updates as of late. Chrome works like a charm. Faster than ever, actually. However, I missed Firefox and it has all my settings the way I like and doesn't have the annoying download feature than Chrome has where it leaves little files along with the download cluttered all over your desktop.

I have had Firefox deleted from my system for months now and have been using Chrome as my daily browser. I wanted to give Firefox a chance again, seeing as I have Windows 11 IE installed, and figuring that maybe there was a Windows 10 Pro bug that was causing the slowness within Firefox, but no, it is definitely Firefox. I even installed Firefox on my M1 Macbook Pro and immediately deleted it as it was using a TON of resources and slowing down my machine.

Can ANYONE please help me in finding out what is wrong with Firefox to make it so very slow in loading for the first time upon firing up my machine. It somewhat loads ok after it's been closed and loaded again a while later, but this waiting forever for it to load on startup is absolutely ridiculous.

For the record, I don't know how to use the about:help stuff, so if you are going to suggest something, then please be very specific as I have not really dabbled in that so know next to nothing about that feature. Appreciate it.

Hi! I use Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3. I tried to speed up video on Sharepoint. Right click -> speed -> 2.0 and nothing happend. When I right click -> speed again, I saw that speed still 1.0. Then I went to google, found that Sharepoint allow speed up videos only in HTML5 player. Then I knew that to do that in Firefox I should disable Hardware acceleration, so I did it, but it didn't help. OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco add-on is activate.

Then I decided that's Ubuntu. I install ubuntu-restricted-extras, ffmpeg packages (to support h.264 video), restarted, but again that didn't work.

I am trying to change my e-mail address by following the steps provided in here. According to the support pages, in order to do that I need to add a secondary e-mail address and then make it primary.

Until there everything's clear. My issue, though, comes precisely when I try to add that information. The system doesn't recognize the new address. Instead, a message appears saying "Account already exists", when that's not possible, since I never delivered it or linked it with Firefox before, nor even I have received or accepted any validation through the said e-mail. I'm guessing that Mozilla ain't grasping that the address really belongs to another e-mail client.

Illustration: Let's say my current address is <example100@outlook.com> When I try to add the following secondary address <example100@protonmail.com>, the aforementioned message will prompt.

Why? What's going on? Is there any solution available? Thank you beforehand, I can't wait to hear from somebody with a remedy.

Hello everyone!

Since the release of the new Firefox version 90 afterwards I have been using Firefox as I simply love surfing the internet with it as an alternative to chrome or chromium based browsers.

However, a small problem is annoying me: when I try to upload to iCloud.com or Google Drive, especially large ones, the upload speed is limited to 10 mbps, whereas I have an upload speed of 50 mbps.

On the other hand, when I try to upload on Chrome Browser or Edge Browser to both websites, the speed gets maxed out, literally maxed out by even 55 mbps!

I even tried to upload similar sized files simultaneously to Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Chrome and Edge finished while Firefox is still stuck on one third of the upload!

The strange thing though: when I open speedtest.net and measure the upload speed, it gives me on Firefox a speed of 50 mbps!

Any idea where the problem is? Any ideas how to speed up the upload and benefit from the max speed?

I am using latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Thank you!

For my system, I went to Settings and scrolled all the way to the bottom to Network Settings and clicked Settings. This opened a Connection Settings window and the first section is titled Configure Proxy Access to the Internet. My installation of FF had four proxy options to choose from and mine was set to Use System Proxy Setting. I decided to check "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" and I clicked OK at the bottom and closed the Settings tab. FF took off like a rocket! After months of using Chrome because of the extreme slowness FF had, I can now continue on with FF and zip around the internet at warp speed. I am very happy!!

Hi!

Every online video I watch with Mozilla Firefox (92.0, 32-bit) has serious vsync/tearing problems. I tried Chrome - it doesn't have such problems. Local video players (VLC, MPC etc) also do not have such problems.

As a freelance translator, my clients often assign me work through online translation software interfaces like Wordfast and MemoQWeb. I've never had trouble using these services before. Since the update on September 7, I've been unable to work normally in MemoQWeb. When I open up a file and start translating, the workspace repeatedly reloads (every few minutes) as if I'd just opened the file. Every time this happens, it boots me back up to the first segment in the file and loses any unconfirmed input I'd been in the process of typing into the open segment at the moment of reloading. I don't have this problem in Edge (I checked), but Edge is my emergency fallback browser and isn't set up with useful translation add-ons like my Firefox account. This is slowing down my workflow a lot, and I would deeply appreciate help getting it resolved. <3
