I have Windows and this is an old Toshiba laptop. It seems that Edge is always trying to open. Windows won't update most of the time and now I, hardly an expert in anything computer, find my regular opening Firefox page is huge. And there is Edge again trying to open on my taskbar, even though I have set Firefox as my default browser. Can anything help me be less confused? How do I make Firefox and webpages I search from it go back to normal?

Recently (~2 days ago) I would be scrolling down a website and the text would glitch out into black/white/colorful squares. Now it happens randomly and I don't know what causes it. The glitch would follow as I scroll, and I could refresh the page or highlight portions of the text to get rid of the distortion. I have tried quitting out of Firefox, booting it in safe mode, and uninstall-reinstalling it. None of that has helped. Attached are screenshots of the glitch. It seems to be getting more frequent (?)

I did some system scans/diagnostics to check that it wasn't a hardware issue, and there's no problem on microsoft edge or other applications like discord/steam, so it seems to be a Firefox issue.

Typ: HP Pavillon Desktop PC 570-p0xx SerNr.: CNV7410Q2W Produkt-Nr.: 1NG47EA#ABD Win 10 Home 64Bit


When using Firefox, it always crashes. Sometimes after 5 minutes, sometimes after 15 minutes. Even in safe mode. No add-ons are installed. Firefox has been reinstalled several times, sometimes in the 32-bit version. Always the same effect. All other applications (Word, Edge, Thunderbird, etc.) run without problems. Here is the crash ID: bp-0aeefb4d-287e-48be-a2f4-9a2f00200908.txt bp-57fb2801-2726-45d6-88ba-84c3c0200908.txt It would be nice if I could get help with further troubleshooting and resolution of the problem. Kind regards Gerhard Reißer

Only when I reload the site the autoplay icon appears and the video is prevented from being played (This works only in like 80% of the cases). The same for Channel Trailers (I really hate Youtube for inventing these). Opening a video in a new tab works fine and it's waiting until I decide to play it.

Setting media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 in about:config didn't help.

Autoplay is set to block audio and video everywhere.

Major Lag switching between windows on Ubuntu (New issue that appeared after updating to FF 80)

Firefox has been severely lagging--specifically when switching between windows. For example, I could have one window running nice and fast, but then when I switch to another Firefox window, it is unresponsive for up to 10 seconds. That means no opening tabs, no scrolling, no loading pages, until it becomes responsive again. And this happens just about every time I switch from one Firefox window to another. It's a big problem because multiple windows are an inherent part of my workflow, so I can't wait 10 seconds every time I have to do something in another window.

Here's a very important piece of information: The problem does not happen in Safe Mode. However, Safe Mode is the only way to fix it. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, disabling all extensions, refreshing FF (creating a new profile), reinstalling it, and the problem always comes back whenever I'm not in safe mode.

I've spent a lot of time on my own trying to solve this, with no luck. Of course, I'd be happy to post any troubleshooting information you may need to help me. Thank you!
