As the title says and I've tried the following:

- Restarting my laptop - Clearing the cache and cookies - Disabling hardware acceleration - Disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection - Running in Troubleshoot mode - Refreshing FF - Reinstalling FF (Currently running 93.0, 64bit)

Youtube buffers the video but won't actually play it. The same goes for Reddit.

I'm at a loss for what else to try.

I have a Coldfusion application running on Windows 10. I just updated Firefox and when I launch the printer function from with the app, the Print Preview window flashes then closes. The behavior is the same with tab_modal true or false.

Print preview is loading from Chrome and was working with Firefox for years up until the recent browser updates.

I'm using 93.0

Got the "new & improved" version 93, and it doesn't seem so improved. I can barely write this, as it keeps stopping and starting, and acts like we're underwater! It's using about 15GBs of RAM, and while I still have plenty on-hand, it's barely functioning! Come one, what's going on, will this browser ever just work?

The complete error is "typeerror: sourcebuffer.remove: duration is nan" Can not find a fix, so if anyone has a fix, would love to hear it. Thanks

Since the upgrade to version 93 many times Firefox freezes (blue circle moving on screen) and the complete screen is filled with the browser in such a way that the Windows tray is not visible. This is particularly being done when several pages are open in the browser simultaneously. Sometime after this freeze the browser closes itself without any notice. This is rather annoying when I am in the middle of a work.

Here are the details of my OS: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/DkNG2o5X

Please find attached a picture what can be seen when the above freeze happens.

I did the Firefox Refresh, it didn't help.

When I reach an online form, even a simple logon the autofill starts immediately, but it won't fill in anything for 30 seconds to a minute. Most of the time it will fill only the first part of the form, then another halt even though it shows it knows what the next field fill-in would be.

Then sometimes (I don't know what does it) I catch a break and mercifully the autofill releases the open form field it was hung on so I can type it on the old fashioned way, but until it does that I'm helpless as it doesn't let me stop the already started automation when the online form presented.

Any suggestions? It wasn't always this way. Thanks, Dean

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

When streaming video or sound from any website i.e. YouTube, Netflix etc. my audio changes level automatically. I will start a video, the audio level will be set and when I pause and resume playing, especially multiple times in a row, the audio level will increase by itself every time i resume playing however not by increasing either the YouTube/streaming site's volume setting nor my Windows volume slider. If an episode on Netflix finishes and the next episode starts automatically, the volume will be much lower once playback resumes but again, no volume settings/sliders have changed. If I pause and play again, the volume goes up and if i pause and play multiple times it will gradually go back to the original level. I have removed application control of volume in Windows from Firefox and have tried searching for this issue but have yet to find a solution. Chrome does not have this issues on my same device. On rare occasions, the audio will automatically boost all the way up to maximum level and become distorted regardless of which audio device I'm using i.e. wireless headphones, external sound card, any other audio device. I then need to pause and un-pause a few times before it goes back to normal Please help!

I have a VPN for work, some internal sites are inaccessible without this VPN. When I try to access them with the VPN turned off I legitimately get a 403. However, when I turn on the VPN firefox keeps showing 403 while other browsers work fine. This also works the other way around. When I turn off the VPN and try to go to one of the internal sites I don't get a 403 (as I should), instead firefox gets stuck at the page loading stage and nothing happens. There seems to be some kind of caching or optimization going on, but it's terribly interfering. Deleting cookies, caches, etc doesn't help at all. The only thing that helps in this situation is restarting firefox.

Hi there Firefox team!

I'm experiencing a problem with Facebook's in-bedded messenger when I'm trying to send a voice clip to a friend. It doesn't allow the action and gives me the following error: You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone

The problem is that I did, both in browser and on-site, and I can make audio calls and video calls with microphone working on the messenger just fine. Only sending the voice clip doesn't work. I don't know why and whether the issue is with Firefox or with Facebook's code for Firefox, but the issue definitely is annoying.

I've also changed Firefox privacy controls from Strict to Standard, and that didn't help either.

If anyone knows what to do, please help. I love using Firefox, and it's been my default browser for like, decades, and I don't intend to leave it because of this one issue... it's just frustrating. And I've seen some people experiencing the same issue on the web.

I don't know. May the Lord bless you! :D

Starting a few months ago, when I click on a link in a web page that would cause a PDF to be displayed, I get the dialog box asking me where I want to save the file. When I go into settings and change the way Firefox deals with PDF files, having it use Adobe Acrobat DC instead, the problem will be temporarily solved, but it returns shortly. (The particular setting which I have to continually reset is under the Settings/Applications and involves "content type" "Portable Document Format (PDF)(application/pdf)"

How can I make it so that I don't have to continually instruct Firefox to open rather than save PDF files?

Hi, since 93.0 stuff went worse regarding speed and additionally, listening to short 30 sec tracks in advance on regular amazon pages fails at all. Tried the tracks-thing with the latest Edge: et voila -> no prob at all.

I am on Win10pro, 21H1. These issues started with 93.0. No, I have not played around with any about:config settings after updating it. It's quite annoying and my overall experience starts to suck. Sorry but if stuff goes that bad out of the blue... What have you people done/changed?

This is the second time I am posting about this - I did what was recommended before, but after a few good weeks, its now way worse. For some reason my print settings change to HUGE so that when I print, unbeknownst to me (because the preview looks fine), only maybe 1/4 of the page prints on one page. Yesterday I had to clear the print settings (help, more troubleshooting, print, clear saved settings) several times. The first time it happened I was printing multiple photos and had 16 pages of unusable color printouts. Although I didn't change the print settings manually at all, this problem recurred multiple times after I cleared the settings and although everything was fine when I left work last night, it was back to HUGE for the first print outs this morning. It is a big waste of paper and ink and is very frustrating. I'd like to know what is causing it and if there is a permanent way to fix it.

I am trying to open youtube.com but it gives a blank page with nothing on it and loading stops as well (see screenshot attached). The website works on Google Chrome browser, so I doubt that this is a website issue.

I have tried the following and none of these fixed the problem:

1. Clear cache and cookies 2. Restart firefox in Troubleshoot mode (still the same issue) 3. Disabled hardware acceleration did not fix it

I would appreciate any help to fix this.

Hello Firefox. You have been my go-to browser for many years now. I am always using the latest version for Mac. About ten days ago, two of my four sites became blocked, with the "Secure Connection Failed" notice.

I am a low-income independent working artist who needs for people to have access to my sites. GoDaddy sees no issue on their end (all four of my sites are under the same deluxe hosting account with the exact same SSL encryption), and all four sites show up on Safari and Chrome. Until now, I have preferred Firefox.

https://www.alexalev.com/ https://www.paintedjay.com/

These are the results at Why No Padlock using the Firefox browser: https://www.whynopadlock.com/results/447e5a19-3baa-4374-ba79-a9829eeef737

According to Why No Padlock, everything is perfect.

To make matters screwier, none of my sites are e-commerce or take info from people. They present information and there are links off site to places like Amazon and Instagram, but there is nothing of a security issue on any of them, PLUS I have SSL encryption properly configured, anyway, no matter what, so that there would be no issue.

Please re-instate public access to my sites. I am sure this is a glitch of some kind. Nothing else explains it, but I need them to be LIVE ASAP, as I am trying desperately to make some kind of a living with the pandemic having cancelled all my shows. Thank you!
