Soy usuario de firefox con Ubuntu 18.04. En varias ocasiones al tener varias pestañas de navegación el equipo se bloquea por completo, solo es posible forzar el apagado con el boton de encendido. También creo que este problema lo tenia con Ubuntu 16.

¿Alguna sugerencia?

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you because of Mozilla's new add-on policies. I am especially focusing on the point: Encryption – standard, in-browser HTTPS – is now always required when communicating with remote services. In the past, this was only required when transporting sensitive information. While I am supporting this new rule, I would like to ask, if there is any chance to be excluded from this policy. I am the developer of Domain Country, an add-on which allows you to retrieve the geographical information (and other data) about a given domain. To retrieve this data, Domain Country uses the API https://ip-api.com/. Unfortunately, this API requires a paid key to be accessible via HTTPS (Example URL: https://ip-api.com/json/mozilla.org). While I am very frustrated about this solution, I still decided to implement it, because I could not find another free API service. To still ensure that users are protected against Man-in-the-middle-attacks, I decided to manually validate the data after it is received (the code for Domain Country is open-source. This is the line, I'm talking about: https://github.com/Myzel394/domaincountry/blob/master/src/apis/fetchDomainInformation.ts#L94). Domain Country will also be continuously updated to ensure the user's safety. As a student with only low income it is also impossible for me to pay for https://ip-api.com/.


I hope you understand my problems and consider excluding Domain Country from the new add-on policy.

Firefox stalls and stops on youtube videos. Chrome, Chromium, Opera do not. Same computer-Linux Mint-only Firefox fails. Tried reinstall, tried all the answers on the internet, nothing works. I've used Firefox for years and never had this problem. Guess I'll have to move on unless there is a REAL fix for this

I am frequently having problems trying to log in to online bank Simplii Financial. My internet connection is good, FF (88.0) is able to connect to other sites. Other browsers (Opera, Chrome etc ) could all connect and allow my login. With FF it simply continues loading with no result. i have asked the bank to check their FF certificates? and they say there is no problem - just use another browser! Firefox is my main browser, the only one that can save my login details. This problem is sporadic but has been going on for several months. It may be connected with FF updates but I am om the latest version for my Linux distribution I believe.

 At one time FF would never connect to PC Optimum whereas other browsers did, that problem was somehow solved.

i have firefox 99.0.1 64 bit in a linux system. i see fail in play of sounds. videos plays well, youtube, soundcloud and others play well, the thing is the play of sound only, in for example dictionary sites

for example in wiktionary in the page Europe sometimes audio plays well the first time, but it sticks at the beginning of play in replay. if i play it in loop in this page https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/46/En-us-Europe.ogg it plays well but again in playing it one time it sticks

in the page english (see the small letter) of the same site as it is not changed to the new control bar i go to menu > players where i have the html5 and javascript options, failing the former and doing well the latter, so you may think the fail is in html5, but in this page http://atticgreek.org/pronunc/sigmaU.html inspecting the page i see that sound works by javascript and i have a similar fail as the first word nósos plays well but the second présbeis again plays only the beginning and sticks

For a few months now I can't upload anything larger than 500 MB on Google Drive. I did talk to GD support and it worked fine with Chrome and Chromium. So whatever is causing this problem, it's in Firefox. I tried with a clear Firefox (one with no extensions by deleting /.mozilla) but it's still the same - the upload starts but then stops within the first 30 seconds. Ping and traceroute are all perfectly fine to google servers, no losses, so it's not the connection either.

Firefox is the latest stable version: 101.0.

Clicking the back button does not usually take me back to Google search results. When I do a Google search and click on one of the resulting links, it's often (but not always, oddly enough) as if I've opened the link in a new tab with no browsing history. I can continue to click on links and build the tab's history, but the oldest url in the tab history is the one I got to after the Google search results page. To get to the Google page, I have to open my full browsing history.

If it's just my problem, I'll just keep doing that, but I appreciate any ideas. Maybe it's how Google redirects? Is there a setting that could affect this? Some of my settings are inherited from Ubuntu Studio.

Thanks.
