Hello. I know this is so random of a problem, but on this computer, when I try to play a video on YouTube, or playing a next video in a queue, the whole page seems to be not responsive and the CPU usage soars to 100% for a little bit. It bothers me since this problem does not exist on my other machines. I think there is a fix to this and you might check it out and message me if you want to ask for more information regarding this problem. Thank you for resolving this issue and it would really help in the overall performance of the browser. NOTE: This only happens when I only pick a next video or automatically plays the next video in a queue. Sometimes it happens but sometimes it does not.

Almost as soon as the most recent Firefox update, 109.0, happened, I began having this half tab showing up on the far left of my tabs bar for some site - https://deal2coupon.com/all-stores/ebay.com.

What the hell is this? Did it come with the update? I've searched all over the internet and all I find are all the top Google search returns are directed to that site as if they are a wonderful site and they will do their best to tell you that's true. Bah! Humbug! I even checked https://reports.adguard.com and all it says is it's not on any black list they monitor. (YET!)

How do I get rid of it? Who do I report it to?

Firefox fonts are blotchy and unclear

Hi, I just bought a new Windows 11 Ideapad laptop and installed Firefox 109.

The laptop display has a resolution of 2560x1600. My external monitor has a resolution of 1920x1200, so both are 16:10.

If I duplicate displays and just use the external monitor, which is what I have always done, Firefox renders all text as very blotchy, like a printer that is running out of ink.

Edge looks fine on the external monitor. I installed Chrome and it also looks fine.

I have a attached some sample images. I used my phone to take photos of the monitor. I noticed that if I used the Windows Snipping Tool or FF's built-in Take Screenshot that the image was darker and clearer in the selection box than when it's normally displayed.

I read a lot of comments on forums about various setting changes to try in about:config under gfx.font_rendering. Many folks say that has helped them. I tried lots of those setting changes, but none of them helped.

Also in those forums some folks said there was a change in rendering from FF 108 to 109, so I installed FF 108 but it looks no better.

Since I normally just use the external monitor, when I looked at the laptop, I suddenly noticed that Firefox on the laptop display looks fine.

Some online searching suggests using "Extend Display" in Windows if the laptop and external monitor resolutions do not match. I tried that and then Firefox looks fine on the external monitor. The laptop senses the different resolutions, it seems, and changes something that helps Firefox.

I prefer just using the external monitor. Duplicating the display is an option, though not my first choice. My other options are: Buy a new monitor with 2560x1600 resolution, except that I just bought this monitor recently so that's wasted money. Return the laptop since I've only had it 2 days and get one with a 1920x1200 display. I had considered one of those, but it was more expensive and opted for this one.

I'm trying to understand why this would only affect Firefox and not Edge or Chrome. Are there any ideas on that and if there is a way to remedy it?

Thanks, Ross

Had Firefox for many years. Generally, install updates automatically.

Most recent update a few days ago (109.0 (64-bit)) has stopped all on page links. I even try to hover over, view and copy links, and they don't show up. Try to advance pictures in a rotation display - no response. The only change was the auto update.

I have been using firefox for several years. Have my bookmark icon on the menu bar on the right hand top. The drop down list of bookmark appear on the right and submenus appear on the left of the drop down list. Recently one folder began showing the sublistings on the right side, it used to display them on the left. All of the rest are displayed on the left side.

The titles of these bookmarks displayed on the right are some of the shortest in length.

Is there a way to set this back to the left side?

I have had 2 sites produce this error box in place of the target Web Site (See Picture). I have read previous topics about this and have followed the instructions with no positive results. FYI, clearing the web site's cookies, clearing Cache and disabling Hardware acceleration.

The first was https://www.walmart.com. After leaving a "Feedback" 2 weeks ago it appears as if they were able to fix the problem. However, the site is not as important as my Medicare PPO provider. I tried loading previous versions of Firefox, but that did not help.

In both instances the LOL "support" people's response was to try a different Browser. So, I reluctantly loaded Google Chrome and it worked perfectly. From my perspective, this eliminates everything to do with my machine setup.

Below is the sign-on URL (not unique to me). Please note that this 668 character URL has not changed for over a year. It is just Aetna's adoption of the Imperva Security Firewall. Both my Winders 8.1 and Winders 10 machines produce the identical results.
