After 89.0.1 update on Windows, Firefox will not release the audio device, not allowing the computer to sleep.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

Trying to install add-ons, I get "An unexpected error occurred during installation."

I checked the about:policies#active and InstallAddonsPermission is false.

The Firefox is portable and I was able to install add-ons in the past.

Up until a few weeks ago, I was able to type in the google search page which was located in the middle of the search page. Now there is a bar below my tabs where all the typed words go. Not a fan!

Sometimes my computer crashes after starting Firefox for the first time each day. Once the restart completes I don't have problems for the rest of the day.

In Facebook I find I suddenly can't attach image or links to a post. I remove them and the post button becomes active again but even if I try to edit the post after with an attachment the button is blue but is not clickable. When I go to another browser everything works just fine.

One dashboard I use for my business now loads without any content on the page but it loads perfectly fine in another browser. All of these problems started with this newer version of Firefox.

Is there some setting I need to adjust, should I roll back or is it time to move on?

Get me back my bookmarks. I put off updating Firefox because updates are always risky. One reason: your idea of an improvement isn't always mine. For instance: I finally allowed the most recent update and I couldn't access my bookmarks from the Library. My solution: the upgrade caused a problem, undo the "upgrade". Wrong, now my bookmarks are gone entirely. TH

For the past few days I have been having problems accessing google services. Sometimes gmail will load for me but then later on I will get this message "The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected." After which it is impossible for me to access gmail.

Furthermore, google search also will not work for me. I cannot search from the address bar or when I go to the google website. As well as this I cannot search on YouTube.

I have tried clearing my cookies and cache multiple times as suggested by most posts. This has not fixed the issue.

Any help would be much appreciated as I use these websites very often and this is really an issue for me.

Recently my tabs and tool bar color scheme all turned white. I have gone through Add Ons and Themes and changed/enabled the default, as well as other color themes. The tabs still don't appear properly. They all blend together, whereas previously I could see an outline for each tab. I then wanted to uninstall firefox and then install it again. The problem I am having is that when I go to install it (after downloading it again), it recognizes I previously had it installed and it only allows me to install it again with whatever is left behind from the previous install. My PW, History, Login, etc., are still present on the new install. My question..... How can I install FireFox and have it be complete new? I don't want any previous info on there. Something has messed with my application internally and I don't know how to isolate it and would prefer a completely fresh slate. I believe my PC is operating Windows 10. I have been using the same system and Firefox on this PC for 4 years now, without previous issues. Thank you.
