Random Unusual Freezing, Yet Not Unresponsive

Hello,

I've recently encountered a curious issue with my Firefox browser (Firefox version 102.0, Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25145.1011). At seemingly random times it will freeze for between two and five minutes (roughly). UI elements become completely unresponsive and the cursor does not update when moving over the browser window. The window will not minimize. Yet, Windows Task Manager does not report the application as being unresponsive. While never a common problem, any freezes in the past would eventually cause the Windows Task Manager to identify it as unresponsive.

I have disabled "recommended performance settings" and hardware acceleration to no avail. Everything seems perfectly normal immediately before and after the freezes, and I've yet to identify how I can trigger them. I do not recall having made any changes to my browser before the freezes started occurring, though multiple Windows updates have taken place since then. If I'm too impatient to wait I will end the Firefox processes via Windows Task Manager and restart it so I can return to my tabs without having cookies deleted. I have 13 plugins mainly covering privacy/security concerns. Is there some sort of debug tool I can engage to see what's occupying Firefox while it's frozen? I've just found the Firefox Task Manager, and will see if it can offer any additional information during/after the freezes.

Thanks, Logan

Reply all loses track of the emails the original email was sent to

When I reply to emails, either reply, or reply all, I prefer to see all the email addresses from the email header that the original email was sent to. This is the default on most email systems I've used. I think it was the default on Firefox until recently.

Now, when I do a reply, or reply all, the message now starts with the original email, without the email headers. I understand some people may prefer that, but I definitely don't like it. It can be useful to see who the original email had been sent to, especially if there are errors in that list of people, or the people included are fewer or more than the previous email.

Note, if I forward the email, the email does contain the email addresses from the original email header.

This behaviour caused me some real grief when I realised some people had made a mistake when sending me an email recently.

Is there a setting to adjust this?

Regards

Someone broke into my firefox. A ex friends through into my face stuff she could only know if she or someone broke into my firefox history.

I deleted firefox browser on both my android and pc's and am brokenhearted because I checked it and it brought back memories going back to 2011.

I want this person who did this for her. The broke into my google, laptop, pc. She's pretty and rediculuos manipulitieve.

I've tried tech guys, computer stores, web sites. They want me delete everything and start over. I don't want to loose decades of memories. I have a vpn and they keep breaking into my phone and pc's.

Is there a goverment contractor worker that does this stuff on the side? I want to find them. I bought Audibles and Kindles on dark web to see if anyone there can help, and will read for next 10 years if I have to in order to find them. Need suggestion.

On my Macbook air (m1 2020 14.3.1 (23D60)) /etc/hosts is ignored by Firefox 123

i've tried multiple offered (old) solutions from stack but non work.

FAILED ATTEMPTS:

  • DNS over https -> off
  • network.trr.excluded-domains ... tried to add the domains in the dns over https exeptions ... didn't work either
  • added the domains to network.trr.excluded-domains
  • cleared cache
  • restart ff
  • migrating all my /etc/hosts config from multiple domains on a single line to separate lines did. Hope this helps someone.
  • network.ttr.mode = 5
  • sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder in the terminal


Background: I run my own server and I cannot access them over the internet if I am on the same network (rounter dissallows this) This is annoying as I cannot develop via my laptop.

/etc/hosts is changed and in the terminal all (ssh etc...) works fine.

What is the proper way of doing this these days?

The bounding rectangle of an input control getting by UIAutomation is not up-to-date

I'm using UIAutomation to get the bounding rectagle of an input control. Here's my C++ code.

IUIAutomation* p_iui; ... IUIAutomationElement* p_fcs_element; while(TRUE) {

   Sleep(1000);
   p_iui->GetFocusedElement(&p_fcs_element);
   RECT r;
   p_fcs_element->get_CurrentBoundingRectangle(&r);
   _cprintf("Rect: %d,%d,%d,%d\n", r.left, r.top, r.right, r.bottom);

}

When I put focus on some input text area and move Firefox by drag&drop, the RECT r's data(left,top,right,bottom)does not change, unless I change the focus to another text area and back to the first one. Should I change some Firefox settings to make the location information up-to-date when get_CurrentBoundingRectangle every time?

Hi,

is there a way to stop a website to automatically forcefully boot me to their main page after like 1sec?

In my case its this Link: https://multiversus.bugs.wbgames.com/bug/MVS-1-3162 It straight up throws me back to the original website after being able to see it for probably less than a second.

Thanks in advance!

I like the button that shows the status of anything I elect to download (e.g. an image to put in an error report).

However about a week ago I started getting a pulldown style display in addition to the little status icon. Is there any way to shut that off? It's annoying.

I backup my Firefox profile on G. Drive (encrypted). It takes HOURS to copy the whole profile folder (bad internet). When I copy the updated folder into the old one, should I ignore the old files or overwrite them (and take hours in the process). There is a chance that my backup fails because there are too many old files that I ignored and left there?

A few days ago I got the new Firefox version 103.0.1. And now áll websites I visit are larger than they were before, I didn't change anything and zoomlevel in e.g. about:preferences is still 100%

Now, with all the websites I visit I have to manually change the zoomlevel to 90%, to have them at the same level as before the update.

What do I have to change to have the zoomlevel set permanently at 90% ?

I've tried numerous times the "solution" Mozilla gives me: "Change zoomlevel in about:preferences to 90% but that doesn't work: no matter how many times I close Firefox, and restart, or restart the entire computer, it still defaults to 100%, and I still have to change the zoomlevel to 90% for each website I visit.

My Firefox refuses to load MetaCPAN's OpenSearch.xml file, even though I can access it without problems.

So this got me thinking, as Opensearch files are relatively easy to write, is it possible to import my own opensearch.xml into Firefox?

If it's impossible, I'll submit a ticket to bugzil.la.
