When I enter firefox fullscreen and mouseover the top-edge, the dropdown toolbar/tabs will push the whole website down. Is there a way to alter the default behavior of the toolbar/tabs dropdown such that instead of taking up space and push down the website, just overlay the viewing pane and keep the page unchanged?

Greetings, Lately at v104 onwards the Youtube video sound is muffled, I've tried several solutions that are frequently the source of issue like hardware issue(tried a pair of brand new headphones), volume mixer is at the same level of system and everything else other than Firefox sounds reasonably loud, driver reinstallation, removed cache and preference etc.

Last I checked with other browsers for instance Chrome and Edge which are Chromium based and compared both with the same videos but they do not have this issue, so I can confidently say this is Firefox's issue. Hopefully this can be solved.

PS: I did saw one of the older bug tracker forum 3 years ago did mention something like force video to run a different encoder that isn't AV01 in about:config , I did not attempt it as I found it uncomfortable to edit and potentially break my browser.

I see others have asked this question, but Firefox responders suggest solutions which have nothing to do with the problem. The problem isn't with Wix or website designers who use this service.

There is no slowness problem using Wix in the Chrome or Edge browsers. This means the problem is with the Firefox browser.

I have never had this slowness problem with Wix before recently, within the last month or so.

I ask you to consider that a recent Firefox update may be at fault.

Please fix this problem. I much prefer to use Firefox as my browser, but if I have to switch to Chrome to use Wix, which plays a significant part in my work, I might as well change over to Chrome completely. That would be a shame, since I've been a Firefox user for many years.

I have a 25Mhz internet connection and my desktop is connected via WiFi. I am running Windows 10.

When I load Firefox and open a couple of web pages the internet connection speed as measured by Speedtest is steady around 25MHz. However after 5 or 10 minutes the speed drops to a much lower leve. The Speedtest display shows 25Mhz for a few seconds then drops to a low level – a different level on each test. The problem does not seem to be affected by what web pages I open.

Other applications in Windows 10 are also affected by the speed drop but if I close Firefox then other applications regain full speed. If I then re-load Firefox the same thing happens, initially full speed that after a few minutes the speed drops.

I have tried a different WiFi hardware and drivers but the problem still occurs.

When I start playing a video on youtube or twitter, it has about a 20% percent chance of playing with sound. When I skip through a Youtube video with the arrow keys, every skip will once again have an 80% chance of having no sound. Happens without addons in incognito as well, for maybe a week now.

Any help is appreciated.

Since the last win 10 up grade the Firefox browser is using all RAM and CPu availability.

I can type 2,  twenty words sentences before typing starts on the screen and then it is 1 letter at a time. IT is not Kaspersky internet security , and there is no problem if i use Google Chrome.
Every indication is, that Microsoft has found a way to mess up the Firefox browser through the Google search engine, to make the Firefox use every bit of the ram and CPU to make consumers use the Google chrome browser.
It would be much appreciated if the program writers can find exactly what has happened and if what I suspect is the case,  update Firefox with a patch

I'm using Asus X505ZA with AMD Ryzen 3 2200U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, 12GB DDR4 RAM, 240GB M2 SSD, 1TB HDD. And also I use several addons in my firefox but only 3 (ABP, YoutubeAdBlock & Kaspersky Web Safer) is active. I'm using firefox since 2005 until now. IDK what the problem with my firefox, I never found bad issues like this before. When I try to start firefox suddenly my laptop is turnoff automatically & I try to start again but now I saw on task bar manager firefox make a 100% CPU usage and once again it shut it down the Laptop. This happens often, I wish I know what the heck is going on! But now I got another issue when starting firefox, that say "Error: Platform version '104.0.2' is not compatible with...", I'd love to share the SS if you don't mind.

I'm currently experiencing difficulties with the Twitch video player. After typing a message of a certain length, between 3-4 lines, the video player starts moving back and forth in time with the cursor and stops when the cursor stops. I have no idea what causes it. I've turned off all my addons, reset Firefox, and messed around with settings. the only thing that stops it is running troubleshoot mode, but i don't know what is being changed to fix the issue.

I use and love Notion notes app - and have whole personal wiki's on various enormous subjects for my blogging. EG: I have a Greenie page with a tree icon - a Space page with a Rocket icon - and a home renovation page with a hammer icon. I'm a bit OCD about using the bookmarks toolbar with tiny icons and no text labels for efficiency. Icons are important to me.

In Chrome I can just drag any Notion page and the icon for that page works! Tree, Rocket, Hammer - they're all there.

But the problem is in FF it only drags down hammers. I think it is something to do with the fact that my home renovation page with the hammer is the TOP PAGE - and FF seems to think the icon for that is the icon for the whole website I use? The icon should be enough - I shouldn't have to write text to explain what a page is. But in FF - I can't have 20 something Notion icons. I just get hammers. Any ideas?

Since last Monday several sites have been slow to open or need several reloads to do so. This isn't constant as sometimes they open instantly and sometimes I have to wait, but they open with some effort.

They work normally on other browsers and on firefox when I visited my parents during weekend (different computer and provider), which is especially annoying.

Ideas how to fix this?

Hello,

For a while now, I've been having an issue where Firefox will stop playing videos in all websites' native video players all at once, but only after some time. This can take anywhere between 10 minutes and 9 hours to set off, and so is extremely hard to test. I used troubleshoot mode to see if I could fix the problem, and it worked. I thought it was a certain add-on of mine, but after disabling that add-on, the problem started up again - I slowly tested all of my add-ons and all of them were not the problem.

Attached images are what the videos look like. They stay as a blank image stuck at the first second of the video and do not progress in the video. This happens to every video all at once in every open tab, and restarting firefox is the only thing that fixes it.

I've tested hardware acceleration, clearing cache, add-ons, private windows, reinstalling firefox, userChrome.css (folder doesn't exist for this), and I don't know what's left to try. Please advise. I know it's fixable, as troubleshoot mode fixed it, but the fix doesn't seem to be something I can reproduce and I don't know how that can be.
