Hello, So far this month there have already been 4 Updates to Firefox. The latest one was just yesterday and now today there's another one. I don't mind the occasional update; usually it's about one or two each month. Five is crazy making! What's up with all the updates? Thanks, Andre'a

I have spent hours, literally, trying to fix this issue by following firefox community help guides yet nothing I've found has solved the problem. I can fully utilize youtube, with similar addons installed , on google chrome and microsoft edge without any problems yet firefox will allow only videos to be watched on youtube - nothing more. When I try to comment it says: Returned error , when click on the (save) button; nothing happens, when i click on my account icon a blank window opens with a circle spinning in the center endlessly - - the extent of functions is limited to, watching videos . I've manually installed Adobe flash, I've tried disabling the polymer function, I've tried the safe mode with my firewall disabled (I made sure that the microsoft firewall did not enable when I disabled Kaspersky), I went into about:config and did all the adjustments... there is quite a number of other things I did over the course of three hours. In the picture I have one picture showing my firewall/addons disabled with firefox in safemode while in the other picture the firewall/addons are enabled. System Information

Hello, I am using a new HP computer with Firefox as my main browser. I use two screens. I have had problems with Firefox for the past couple of weeks. I usually have a couple of windows of Firefox open. One on the first screen with multiple tabs and another on the other screen. I also run chat programs, Discord, Antivirus programs, Zoom, Slack, and a few others.

Firefox crashing has also crashed other programs. I have had Discord crash a few times and Displayfusion crash as well.

I updated FireFox to the newest version. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled. I updated Windows. Flash is turned off. My video drivers are updated. I checked for viruses and spyware. I did have some Bit Coin Mining malware detected, but it was quarantined last week. All scans now are clear.

As you can see from the attached screenshot (it's amusing that the screenshot utility was captured in it), Firefox ESR has an enlarged URL textfield. It recently appeared on Debian-based systems, along with the more annoying bug solved by cor-el in my previous post. It appears when Firefox ESR is first started and on new tabs. I'm sure this is another about:config solution, but I have no idea what to search on.

What the question says. My tablet had no trouble to get the history from all devices, even my old work laptop that I've returned 3 months ago. For some reason I can't get this history to sync back to any FF installation on any of my desktops. Any solutions? I mean other than rooting my tablet and search for the sqlite file manually.

Whenever I close all pages of Firefox my computer becomes completely unresponsive. No mouse movement, clicks, or keyboard inputs make a difference. I tried reinstalling Firefox, creating a new profile, and installing different versions of Firefox. This is not a problem for other browsers like Chrome. This makes my computer freezes for minutes at a time which can make things difficult for me when I am under a time crunch. I could not find any questions on this matter in any forums. Is this a problem with Firefox or my computer? Has anyone encountered this issue? Does anyone know how to fix this?

The last three times Firefox updated, the Fox icon on the Windows 10 task bar was replaced by a generic one. To restore the Fox icon, the generic one has to be unpinned, but that deactivates it and does not remove it. Then, selecting the generic icon results in a missing item error message and the error box has a selection to remove it. Then a new shortcut needs to be created from the Firefox exe file in the Program Folder and dragged to the task bar. Any idea what is happening and why, and preferably how to prevent it?

On the new home page with all those web site icons, and also in Bookmarks, SOME but not most web sites require you to click, slowly, to open a web page. Otherwise nothing happens. The most common is Microsoft Outlook web mail, as used by our University as standard email (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). This started a couple of Firefox updates ago.

I find nothing about it anywhere.

The delay between clicks needs to be quite long like a second or more. In some cases up to 30 seconds works. At a couple of seconds it always works. If I close outlook and then try again later, after a minute of so that usually but not alwas does not happen, but after an hour, always.

If I start up Web Developer Network before trying, it says it sends a "get" but a red "circle with line through it" icon (i.e. the usual "don't" one) appears with "blocked" written in red.

How do I fix this?

Only one Browser has problems with HD videos (1080p + above) on youtube: Firefox in the most current version.

I have tested so far only the one current latest version of the ESR branch (78.3.x). But as visible from thousands of articles to this very particular problem (when i search the community help database for "Youtube videos stutter" i get multiple thousands of entries - i read only a handful of them to realize that they are all "closed" and not a single one "solved"), this problem persists since multiple years now.

I have a very old PC by my side with a very old Firefox (benchmark wise slower than my current PC by a factor of at least 3) ESR 52.9, which is able to play the same videos in the same HD resolution without the slightest stutter.

The drivers on that old system are - naturally - outdated by half a decade. THAT OLD OUTDATED system with THAT OLD OUTDATED Firefox is well able to play even multiple HD videos side by side. With-OUT any stutter.

Thus, you can easily deduce by logical reasoning that nighter any outdating of drivers whatsoever nor any outdating of anything else on the system, be it hardware wise or software wise, CAN AT ALL be the culprit of that stuttering.

While the former holds true, what you actually find in the communities help are completely useless and irrational tips of "upgrading the browser to the last version", "upgrading drivers" or "reinstalling any software" or the like.

Let me be clear: Nothing of the latter will ever help in overcoming the stuttering of current firefoxes at all. The only one measure that will help here is to revise the code that is underlying the video pipe.

Since the stuttering regularly only begins after about one to two minutes into the videos, it is strongly suggestive that something in the memory management - probably in the way resources becoming freed after use - is accumulating over time until the stuttering begins. Badly managed garbage collection, perhaps?

Hi, in the last few versions of Firefox, every time I open a private window, I get the private browser splash page and I can see that the main Address/Search bar is in focus and I even see the cursor blinking (and it says search with Google or enter an address as usual).

However if I try to type anything nothing happens. I have to click out of the search bar and click it again and only then can I type in the bar.

This only happens when I open a new private window. If I make a new private tab, the bar gets focus and I can type normally. It's only on the first open of a new window where I can't type anything in it initially.
