YouTube can play videos and load the comment section, but the side bar randomly disappears and when it disappears, it's blank and uninteractable with. When I try to load my profile, check notifications, or share a video, it ends up infinitely loading. Clicking the add to playlist button is unresponsive; when it's clicked, it doesn't work. Tried to delete a playlist, showed the prompt to delete the playlist and when clicked, did not delete the playlist.

Current extensions are uBlock Origin, Dark Reader, and Kapersky Password Manager. Tried deleting cookies, cache, and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox.

Thanks for assistance!

I've have a Lenovo Ideapad L340 for app 3 years and everything ran fine. Recently (last few days) video and youtube playbacks are garbled in audio and seem to be looping a very small portion of the file while the visual part does not display. The circular arrow just keeps spinning. Wave files not running through a browser work fine. This issue occurs in Windows Edge and Explorer as well. Thank you.

Hello,

I've experienced a blue screen of death on my machine as listed below, which seems to point that Firefox.exe is the starting point of the BSOD.

I had around 8 tabs open at the time of which 2-3 Twitch.tv channels, Private mode tabs with several websites with a variance of content-typed on them.

However, I had these open in the background while I was playing a game and at some point my computer just rebooted.

It hasn't happened another time (yet) and it is the first time I've had a BSOD for quite some time so it kind of scared me.

I had Hardware Acceleration turned on and Content Process limit was set to 8(Default).

The Nvidia drivers I have installed are: 451.67 (09-07-2020)

I'm using Firefox 79.0 on Win10 x64. When I'm searching on Google, Facebook or Youtube, there is a 10-20 seconds delay between my input and its display in search field, and it's displaying symbols I entered at 1 symbol in 1-2 seconds. After around a minute the delay cuts to minimal and I can use the search normally (but by that time site is already responding to the earlier input which sometimes can be in wrong keyboard layout or misspelled because I didn't see what I was typing until 1 minute after I typed it). I don't have this problems at the websites that are not Google-related, also I don't have it in other browsers. I've tried restarting Firefox (obviously, as this problem persists for weeks now) and/or clearing cache, didn't help.

I was using Firefox in my computer and it was working fine. But after I migrated to windows 10 Os and installed Firefox, I am facing some issues with Firefox. First of all, the gmail.com page is not loading correctly (image added). Also some websites like geeksforgeeks and other websites are having trouble to show some images (mainly).

- what I tried doig previously. 1. Doing ctrl + shift + r on those pages 2. Uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with clearing firefox app data folder from windows computer. 3. Doing a refresh from help menu. 4. Tried running in safe mode. (disabling all extensions) 5. Clearing cache and data from firefox settings.

How how to show them perfectly. however they show good in chrome, but I want to use firefox. So a fix will be highly appreciated.

So I play a lot of Second Life. One of the things I enjoy doing is shopping around and visiting new places in the game. Most folks use something called a "SLURL" which looks something like this:

https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tropical%20Dream/243/46/26

Upon clicking that a secondlife page opens up displaying the location with a "visit this location" button.

Normally, when I click that button it would send the info to my Second Life game and present me with a pop up in-game so I can visit the place.

However now, each time I click the "visit this location" button the browser would fire up another instance of Second life. Even if I login with that new one it continues to open up another copy of the game for me despite it already running.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Problem between Ashampoo Snap and Firefox. I am having troubles with snapshots made with Ashampoo Snap from Firefox outputs. Ashampoo says it is with the latest? Firefox and they have fixed it with a later update. However it has not gone away with the latest Snap. It appears to me (a programmer since 1982) that it might be a with a key sequence that is used to get a Snap copy that is interpreted by Firefox in some way. What happens is that it loook like a list of past usage in Firefox as is found with options History but with more detail as in a snap of part of a usage history made from my last usage of Firefox with more details as you can see. I have not been able to reproduce it in Firefox. Thanks Ron.
