Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz 4 Cores GPU - AMD Radeon R7 200 Series with 2gb.

Pls fix.

I have more than 100 tabs and more than 1k open in the background (the tab is downloaded from the previous session, but not open). When opening / closing the FF tabs, it gradually uses up to 18-20GB. When this limit is reached, friezes begin, the tabs open slowly. Memory busy FF is released ~2GB, after that it starts to load pages. According to symptoms, it looks like a shortage of RAM. But I have 64GB RAM, reserve (Win) 17GB, free 15GB. And more is 9GB SWOP on SSD, 136GB of free space on SSD and 1TB+ free space on HDD (RAID0), 200+ MB / sec internet . Where and what to change to ff used accessible resources? After all, they exist!

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows. I bumped into this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1155401 Saying: this will open another instance of Firefox. But nothing is bulletproof! So ask, if this will isolate me from addons, which I would open in first instance of Firefox.

Thanks for help.

Usually, when you close Mozilla Firefox or shut down your computer, you can restore the before closed bookmarks while you start again Mozilla Firefox.

I'm working on an addon to automate taking screenshots of lecture slides. I'm using a canvas object to capture and save the file blobs and JSZip to zip everything together and download. But JSZip keeps throuhing the `unsupported file type` error. Even though blobs are supported.

Here's the relevant code I'm using Github File

I've submitted an issue to the maintainer which has some more debugging info. The script in the addon_context has some very quantum behaviour and changes output every time I console.log Github Issue

I'm wondering if there might be a problem on my end, with the way I'm generating and processing the blobs. The same code works in chromium based browser, I'm confused as to what Firefox does differently. Any help would be appreciated.

Whenever I open Firefox I'm asked to download impression.link. It's keeps popping up even though I cancel. I've tried saving it to make it go away but each new tab I open in Firefox browser I get the same all over again. Impression.link pops up and asks whether I want to save or run it. I've never had this before and it's extremely annoying as I don't know if it's a threat. Do you know what this is and how do I stop it.

'bold text'Problem with appearance of aplusnet email on my iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.2.3.

For no apparent reason, everything in the Firefox window displaying this email application appears about one-fifth or less of normal size. (See attached screen shot.) Everything, meaning text fonts, graphics, etc. No other Firefox window or tab similarly affected. I tried restarting the application. And then restarting the computer, then Firefox, then the aplusnet email. No soap. Not responsive to changing the font size.

No idea how this happened, but it’s rendered the email unreadable on Firefox. I'm running Firefox Browser 87.0. Thanks very much for your help.

When I click shift and right click always a context menu comes up and I would like to deactivate that.

This is very annoying and I would like to change that - though what I found so far wasn't that helpful for me.
