I have been a Firefox user for most of my time on a computer and that's a lot of years. A regular site I visit is Townhall.com. A few months ago I could no longer play videos because the link (video screen) would not appear. The text below where the screen should have been appears. I worked with Townhall on this and we could not solve it. Interesting was that periodically the link would appear but now doesn't appear at all. So I am forced to use MS Edge for Townhall videos.

Then it happened on another site I frequent - RacerX.com. When I try to play a video I get a blank screen with the message: "Unfortunately your Targeted Advertising privacy settings prevent us from showing you this YouTube Video. Please update your consent to see this content." I cannot find anything in settings which should cause this. I changed nothing. Settings are the same as they've been for years. So now for RacerX videos I have to use MS Edge.

I would prefer to continue to use Firefox as my browser but switching back and forth is not productive. As much as I do not want to make MS Edge my default browser it looks like I will have no choice unless you can help me solve this issue.

I'm still using windows professional 7, it works for the most part. Unfortunately often the browser won't load or it will load and runs very slowly, then it shows a box saying close previous firefox. When it is running slowly I often have to hit the browser many times until the box shows up saying close previous firefox. Is this something to do with windows 7 or another completely different issue.

a few days ago, Firefox stopped playing sounds. Any sounds. not youtube, not on Facebook. Not even porn videos. nothing. i don't remember installing any new software and Chrome plays youtrube sounds just fine. I listen on headphones and when i unjack, i still can only hear Chrome's browser play sounds. It seems like its not my comp, its the browser itself and it's only happened recently. i have yet to uninstall the browser and re-install, but i think if i use the Mozilla backup program to save my bookmarks, it will save whatever setting is causing the problem as well and re-installing will get me nowhere. anyone have any clue? i'm sure it's something simple but i cant figure it out

We have 5 devices and have always been able to log in to any or all of them. Now, we can only log in from our laptop. I have entered the login data manually and with Norton 365. The only device we can get logged in on is the laptop. All of the devices are running the latest version of Firefox. I have cleared the cache re-booted all of them with no change.

Firefox v123 Snap on UbuntuStudio 22.04 only works in Safe Mode

UbuntuStudio 22.04 uses the Firefox Snap package by default. The latest automatic update does not display pages correctly in normal mode, but does work correctly on Safe Mode. Snap.io lists only the latest version of Firefox so I was unable to ask snap to revert to the previous release (prior to 5 Mar 24) and by the time I had tried to investigate the previous version was no longer cached. I did not see a way to force a fresh download of firefox from the latest channel on snap.io.

I tried the snap beta channel for v124, but that exhibited the same problems.

I tried adding a symbolic link to colors.css after seeing firefox complaining that it could not be found when started from the command line. That removed the error/warning message but did not clear the problem with normal mode.

I use the en-GB locale extension only. The technical details about my PC are as follows:

  • Operating System: Ubuntu Studio 22.04
  • KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.7
  • KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0
  • Qt Version: 5.15.3
  • Kernel Version: 6.5.0-25-lowlatency (64-bit)
  • Graphics Platform: X11
  • Processors: 12 × AMD Ryzen 5 7600 6-Core Processor
  • Memory: 30.5 GiB of RAM
  • Graphics Processor: RAPHAEL_MENDOCINO

I have now downloaded v123 and installed it in my local home directory, and that version is working well. I have removed the firefox channel via snap. It is likely to be a fault in the construction of the snap for v123 that was not present for v122 prior to 5 Mar 24.

Dear Firefox

                                                      SEASONAL GREETINGS

Just about a week ago after my last Firefox upgrade, the browser started weirdly. The style, characters, boxes and bands were abnormally changing sizes. I tried using Firefox settings: Zoom all to no avail. I went into System display and did advanced scaling and it was of no help. I further went on System Restore and Resetting my computer and it was all the same.

I removed all add-ons, cleared both Firefox and the Systems Caches and carried malware clean up of my computer. I also carried out troubleshoot and the computer informed me there was no malware in the system using Windows Defender.

After carrying out any the above when I restart the computer all the values change to their abnormal values with very large Firefox Interface, the bands and spaces including the URL address bar appear abnormally large. When I use the mouse, sections of the browser moves all across the page uncontrollably. This happened for over a week. Hence I could not access my AOL email.

Though risky as you advised against, I had to download a lower version : 82.0.3 which appears to steadier and then managed to access my email and other apps, like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter(X), etc.

Within this period I had the same problem with my second preferred browser - Yandex. I contacted their Support Team and explained to them what was happening. They asked me to send screen short the problem. I took the screenshot and found out that in the Interface at the top the size was shown to to be 66%, but yet the band spaces and characters were abnormally large.

They wrote back thanking me with the advice to open browser://flags in their Yandex browser, and there disable "Enable 125% scaling factor" option by selecting "Disable". When I carried out their instruction, just like magic, the Yandex browser returned to normality.

Firefox, do you have such a function so as to advice me? You probably would have to get your developers into this matter. My honest opinion is that Firefox is rushing out hastily with upgrades. Hence the problems. On the Internet there are many complaints about the instability of Firefox.

Thanks in advance in hearing me out.

Hi,

I'm getting errors when trying to make online card payments with Firefox. Things like, Invalid card number, not being able to type number in box provided, (No Cursor). It works ok on some sites but not others. However, if I switch to the Edge browser all transactions work perfectly. This has been happening for some time (Windows 11). I'm thinking this could be a bug but not sure.

Im running Firefox on Apple Silicon and I really do wish that there was a way to change settings to adjust experience when using the browser. As for my current needs I wish there was a barebones mode I could enable because currently it's an energy hog and I am becoming discouraged to continue using it with this inefficiency.

Ill explain my use case, I do lots of research for school, and tend to work with 30-50 tabs at a time and by simply having Firefox open it drains my laptops' battery 3 to 4 X (times) faster. While the same tabs on Safari and even newly released DuckDuckGo Mac app can run those tabs for days while still sipping on battery.

another occassion is during my job search, these tabs will stay open for a week or two as I open jobs im applying to, using 'Skillsyncer' and bunch of gmail tabs. I prefer my laptop to lose 5% battery in 2 hrs instead od 3 minutes.

As things are now, Firefox is not well optimized and would like to let the Firefox team to add the mentioned functionality above. Sadly there's no way to reach out to their team and am instead forced to post here. For now I will refer to Firefox to 'Firefix' as there's plenty to fix.
