I have recently noticed that I can no longer see the "comments" sections on various "News" websites. I first noted this with Townhall Media sites (Townhall.com, Redstate.com, Pjmedia.com) and now Foxnews.com. What has Firefox changed that has resulted in this issue? Most of these sites use Disqus for comments. I have tried explicitly allowing content from these sites. I've been using Mozzila products since the advent of Netscape. Always found Firefox to be superior to other browsers, and I'd like a little help in finding out what is causing this problem. Thanks.

For over a month now i have a problem with youtube. It loads videos very badly. I have good connection speed, but 0 network activity and 0 buffer health in Stats For Nerds on youtube and videos dont load. I can wait for 10-15 minutes (but sometimes they load almost instantly) before video load 40 sec buffer and after that buffer ends i can wait for another 10 minutes befor it load buffer again.

This problem persist only in my firefox on my computer. I tried deleting all the extensions, reinstalling firefox, "refresh firefox" future, changing useragent, reinstalling windows (it was the time anyways) but it doesnt solve the problem. I dont have this problem in other browsers (edge, librewolf, chrome) on my computer.

When I used to take screenshots, they would be automatically named with the date, time, and part of the text captured regardless of language. A few days ago and with no reason I can discern, it now saves any non-English screenshots with something like this "Screenshot 2024-06-23 a[...].png" instead of "Screenshot 2024-06-22 at 08-02-28 Politics Policy Polit[...].png" (usual for English text and what I used to get with all languages).

Which means I have to manually rename screenshots. Does anyone know how I can fix this because I am working on a project with lots of screenshots for topics from different languages?

I am using Windows 11 and FF 127.02. I have read the lag issue with Youtube was suppose to be corrected with FF 127.02 but it is not. I have been using FF for many years now an love it. It is my understanding that it is the ad blockers causing the slow down. Do you have an estimated date when this will be resolved. I have tried every trick included running it in diagnostic mode or trouble shooting mode. Nothing seems to work. Not even a refresh.

Thanks

How do I stop these recurring update notices? Every 3 seconds. I'll update when I am ready as this current one does not affect me at all. For a while I fell for it, stopped what I was doing and did the ridiculous update, it still continues! I can move on to a different non-Mozilla browser if I have too. Return the option to not update and/or do it manually. FF127.0.2

Memory load/leak on Apple Silicon?

I have struggled off an on for about a year since getting an M-series Mac with Firefox and memory load. This is an issue that I did not struggle with with the same RAM-Specc'd Intel alternative. I have received multiple out of memory errors the longer Firefox would run. I have done full clean installs of my machine (not restoring anything from backup) and gone so far as to up replacing the machine (though not for this specific issue only) that had double the RAM (32GB vs 16GB). I haven't yet begun to receive out of memory errors on this new machine, but I see the day coming.

I believe this is directly related to the number of tabs open, like they must not go to sleep. My concern is that with firefox running, over time (like a day or two) Firefox ends up consuming a little more than 10GB of RAM (peak observed so far). Quitting and reopening Firefox brings me down to 2.5-3 on the same tab count for a couple days.

My addons are all up to date, and I only have two (Firefox Multi-Account Containers, and NordPass for password management). I've removed Nord for troubleshooting purposes with no effect. I have changed to various versions and variations of firefox (meaning beta versions and the developer variation of the browser).

I have also used another browser entirely (MS Edge) for an extended amount of time with basically the same environment open. For comparison, same tabs, same amount of time open Edge uses 3GB RAM and upon restart jumps to 5GG Ram but settles back down to 3.

I am wanting to stay with Firefox. It's multi-container setup is the best there is (that I know of). I hate the idea of moving to another browser.


TL;DR Issue: High Memory usage on Apple Silicon (Firefox using just over 10GB RAM after a couple days)

steps taken: Computer has been reinstalled multiple times Computer has been replaced (move from 16GB to 36GB) Browser reinstalled with various versions and variations. Add-ons have been updated and also removed.

Reference Intel Macbook with 16GB RAM in my workflow did not have this issue a single time over many years.

Desire Looking to reign in Firefox's memory usage so I don't have to move to another browser (Edge has proven to hold at 3GB under the same workflow).

On the about:sync page the button to "Export to File..." button has no effect. Regardless if I select "Limit history engine fetch to first 5000 records" or "Anonymize Data".

It used to work. So I wonder why nothing happens when I click the button now... There is no network call made when I click the button. No error.
