Hello everyone! I`m using Firefox for a long time, but the following problem makes is almost impossible to us it anymore:

since a couple of month Facebook stopped working correctly on Firefox, it works for a while, then suddenly everything stopped, does not load anything, nor the page, nor messages... I need to clear the cache of facebook cookies then works for a while again... and then repeat.

It wasn`t a blocker problem with Facebook, but now it does the same with everything related to Google too. I push google button on bookmark, nothing, i push any button on Google (if already opened), nothing... Google docs buttons disappear, google login not works, etc... The same cookie cleaning helps, but i can not do this with google too... I`m logged in to work documents and stuff, can`t just reload everything every 10 minutes....

I use only Addblock Ultimate and Mouse Gestures Event, but tried disabling them without effect on my problem.

Thank you for your input!

Windows 10, Version 89.02 (64 Bit)

When navigating with back arrow on Youtube (the only website I have confirmed this is a consistent problem) the current page essentially reloads instead and then the back arrow is no longer highlighted and no tab history is available for the page (it disappears). In other words, the back arrow will not take me back and the tab loses history of the previous pages I have been to in that particular tab. Apparently the tab's history has been forgotten by the browser.

At other times, the back arrow works once or twice... but trying to click it a second or 3rd time to navigate farther back time causes the tab history to disappear and the back arrow becomes gray (instead of highlighted white).

I have tested this by quickly clicking links through the Youtube site and then pressing the back arrow and this problem does not always occur, but does occur frequently enough during a browsing session to be quite frustrating. Unsure if this is linked to a recent update in the Browser.

when using HBO Max Streaming service with Firefox, latest Stable, that you must have whichever tab/window playing the media be the primary active screen. Because when using PiP or switching to a different windows causes the media to lag and buffer. Playing only a few seconds. When you make that Tab the primary, it resumes normal uninterrupted playback. Why is this?

I am assuming its something to do with the processing it takes to use HBO Max and when its not the primary it reduces resources from it for other things. Which is a huge bummer since PiP mode is useless in this situation. 

To clarify, I only experience this with HBO Max. Other Streaming services work smoothly, even in PiP mode

After 89.0.1 update on Windows, Firefox will not release the audio device, not allowing the computer to sleep.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

I'm running Windows 10 and have experienced multiple, repeated stopcode violations resulting in the blue screen and reboot (or sometimes requiring hard shutdown and reboot). I've kept close records of programs and peripherals, and the only constant I can find is Firefox. Typically I see it with I'm exploring something in Firefox (ironically it just occurred while typing this). I've taken the computer to the shop a couple of times, and they've stressed it over multiple days and can't duplicate it. I wonder about the interaction of internet fluctuations and Firefox. I'm wondering if my motherboard is failing, though it's fairly new. Any help I can get on this would be very welcome! Thank you!

Hello,

MS Surface Pro 7. Latest version of Firefox. Each time I want to start typing in the browser, the on-screen keyboard pops up but dissapears immediately.

An attached keyboard works fine and the on-screen keayboard works also fine in other browsers.

As Firefox is my favorite ! browser, I would appreciate help on this topic.

Some research showed this is a problem that has been reported for years now. Is there any solution yet?

Best regards Franky

Hello, this is about the library.

There is a bug that appeared more or less a week ago.

First the library had adopted a fixed predefined size. The next day, apparently a first bug was repaired, since we could change the size again.

But there is still a bug. When you "decrease" this predefined size, if you click in the left part no problem, but if you click in the right part, the library takes back directly the predefined size! In other words, the library is no longer configurable, it will always take this predefined size.

Can you please solve this problem?

To give an example of use, using constantly the favorites, I took the habit to leave the window open on the side of my first screen, in the smallest size possible for my use. And I open firefox on the second screen. Here when the window resumes its predefined size, it overflows half on my second screen, passing over firefox. This size is too big, it takes more than 30% of my first screen. Forcing me to move it over my applications ...

I thank you in advance.

The last few versions of Firefox will not print certain emails from Yahoo correctly. The printing of the body of the email will start more than half way down the page, sometimes on page 2. The item being printed fits on one page. Page settings are correct. Have reset printer settings in Firefox. Started Firefox without any extensions, no change.

The same emails print perfectly on Opera, Vivaldi, and Google Chrome.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello,

  I have been having an issue for the past couple of days. If i "Open in New Tab" pages, they will open to the tab, look like they are loading in the title bar, but going to the tab it will not load. I can open a bunch of tabs in from the home page of Firefox and they will all do the same thing. Then when I go to one page I will enter into the address bar with the address of the page already in, (from Opening in New Tab) and then hit Enter, then all the pages will load.

This is the firs time I ever have had a real issue with firefox.

Thanks

If an item is sent to the Printer, the whole page will appear in the upper left-hand part of the paper with the font so small, it is barely readable?? A similar question has been asked before but the workaround, switch, fix was not evident or workable. I have already checked the Printer settings and it appears that there is nothing in the machine that can be changed. Does anybody have any idea of what is going on here ? There is no memory of anything previously being changed Re: printing page format--it just started for no apparent reason.

I'm a longtime Chrome user trying to move away from that browser. I recently downloaded Firefox and it worked fine for a few days, but now I'm having problems.

I keep Gmail and Google Classroom open in tabs throughout the day (I'm a teacher). They worked fine in Firefox for a few days, but now both sites constantly load or time out.

The problem seems to go away anytime I restart Firefox, but I can't constantly be restarting Firefox all day long. Why do the sites work for a few minutes and then stop working a few minutes after restarting?

I had AdBlocker Ultimate enabled before, but my friend uses uBlock so I tried changing. No help.

I had a theme installed from the recommended list. I thought that might be a problem, so I went back to the default Firefox theme. No help.

What I'm running: Firefox 89.0.1 MacOS Catalina

I did a refresh yesterday after Firefox had been so slow and now I have other major issues! the letters are not uniform or the coloring on letters are dark and light. I have had this problem in the past and was told how to fix it but that is not working. Told to go to General/Performance/Use hardware acceleration, remove check mark which I have done twice and it didn't help, everything still the same so it makes it hard to read when each individual letter has a dark and light side, r/l or top/bottom! This has been a problem for a long time, especially after I refresh! Two other MAJOR problems though, there is no "HOME" button anymore, and my bookmarks, and bookmark toolbar/menu that I had on the left side of the screen is GONE! Both of those are the worst, and I can find nothing to restore either of them!!!!!! I've used FIREFOX for years, but I get tired of having to figure out how to use it all over again when it slows down or has problems! HELP!

The "xulstore" window resizing problem

Since some time, Firefox (currently 89.0) on Windows 10 automatically reduces the window size from "fullscreen" to "maximized" when re-opening it from another program. So I have to wait until the window size reduction is complete before having to re-enlarge it again (which is quite annoying)

After a short web search, it turned out that this window size reduction is caused by the "xulstore.json" file in the profile folder and several other users are also reporting this issue. However, none of them in the forums I visited knew a permanent solution. I unsuccessfully tried the following:

  • When I delete "xulstore.json", the window size reduction problem goes away only to re-appear after a few re-openings of Firefox (as the xulstore file is re-established then).
  • Editing the xulstore file did not work, as Firefox overwrites it.
  • Denying Firefox writing permission (via Windows) also doesn't work, as Firefox creates a temporary copy of the xulstore file which again causes the resizing problem.
  • Denying access to this temporary copy does not work either.

It seems like Firefox does everything possible just to keep the resizing problem persisting. Is there any permanent solution (different from the failed solution attempts above)? Or even better: could you remove the automatic resizing in a coming version update of Firefox? It seems like I am not the only one who would be grateful about this.
