Firefox wont show photos despite all I've done

Firefox won't show photos on Yahoo websites. I'm using Windows 10. I can see the first photo of an article but the rest of the article shows blank rectangles. I've researched this online, and I see that more than a few are having this problem. I finally exported my bookmarks and deleted Firefox, using the Programs section of the Control Panel. I followed instructions from a "Sunshare" website. The instructions also said to go to File Explorer > Users > Isumsoft Li and remove a couple of app data files - there is no Isumsoft folder though. I'm also instructed to go to Program Files and remove the Mozilla Firefox folder, and there is no such folder that any of my searches show.

So anyway I deleted and reinstalled Firefox, restarted my PC, and I still have the same problem. I'd definitely like to keep using Firefox because of privacy but I'll have to find another browser if I can't get it to work.

I don't know why the upgrades I've installed won't address this problem, but that's not relevant to this post. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Greatly appreciate any help here.

Hello!

I've change the size of the icons in the bookmark bar by using the userChrome.css which now has

  1. personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { height:25px !important; width:25px !important; }

I've increased the height and the width for larger size of the icons since my bookmarks don't have text. The problem is that some of the become blurry after the enlargement. I've tried to force refresh the favicons by Ctrl+F5 and also deleting the cache, but it still does not work.

I know that favicons are usually provided in 16x16 px and 32x32, but I don't see how could I make firefox use the 32x32 version since it's using the 16x16 and enlarging it.

Thanks in advance!

I use Win 10 and FF 83 (German so I did not know the exact english messages)

If I want to open a file-link like ZIP or PDF directly to show in FF or the fitting software (7zip, Acrobat) ("open with...") the file will be downloaded and then it is away. In the downloads history is written "the file is moved, renamed or deletet". I can download the file ("file save as") to the disk and open it after it manually. There are no problems in Chrome or Edge. I try out some settings in the Windows Defender but it did not help. Any idea?

Hi Firefox Team

I am very happy to use this browser as it serves all my needs perfectly! So thanks you for that.

The issue I have is about the updates. Whenever Firefox updates, I lose the sites saved on it. I have no issues with that.

However, can you give me the option to select a time and date for it?

That way I can, 1) Select a time when I am not working on Firefox. 2) Coordinate with other updates like Windows and McAfee.

This will ensure that I am prepared for the sites to disappear just once, instead of every time there's an update.

Thanks, Kajal

Experiencing lots of stuttering while playing video with Firefox 83.0 on Windows 10. Happens with Disney+, Netflix and YouTube. Microsoft Edge (Chromium) on the same system works without any issues with all of these.

Tried to enable / disable hardware acceleration, webGL and some other settings people are commenting on forums, to no avail. Tried updating video drivers, using different settings including frequency / resolution, none of these had any effect on the issue.

Windows 10 version used was 1909. Will try again after upgrading to 20H2 and post back if anything changes.

Trivia: also tested Opera, which suffers from the same problems. Common video codec with Firefox, maybe?

When firefox is in full screen mode, as soon as I take my mouse cursor to switch tabs the Mac Os action bar (bar with close and minimize icons on it ) covers the tabs and make it hard to switch tabs, same happens while reaching for address bar which extremely annoying and frustrating.

I see other applications handles it really well for this situation so its not the macos issue. I reported this on twitter too but no satisfying response. I like firefox and don't want to switch back to other browser so please fix this. This issue is extremely frustrating and impacts the core functionality of the firefox or browser in general.


I have attached images from Chrome and source tree, both are third party application. Best handling of this action is done by safari, which smoothly animate and make the space for close and minimize buttons along with the tabs but that's a first party app and not sure if the same can be achieved by third party apps.

I am running Big Sur but this was happening even in Catalina.

Thank you!

Since several editions behind Firefox, using it in conjunction with ad blockers causes problems on pages. Very slow browser performance, missing page elements and mainly using social networks like Facebook the browser behaves very slow, slow, getting slower until, to display any post or try to like a comment, the browser crashes and the message "a page is causing browser problems, want to take action" appears.

I use Firefox with Adblock Plus but I have already tested it with other blockers and the behavior is the same, only changes which page Firefox crashes. Using other blockers, Firefox even behaves well but on Youtube ... The slowness stays there. It looks like a scratched CD when the video freezes.

If I don't use any blockers, the browser works normally, but as the advertisements are a nuisance, I would like Firefox to work ideally again with Adblock Plus.

Even to come here in the Community and post this text the browser keeps crashing. It takes a few seconds for the words to appear.

And unfortunately, the option "Send opinion about Firefox" stopped working when a search appeared "Firefox makes me happy or sad" where I could put some information and mark which site has problems. I don't know if this solves the problems (I have already reported on that channel several times) but now when I log in there is only a message "thanks for participating in the Firefox survey". What research?

Please, check why Firefox since several versions ago has this problem with ad blockers and present solutions ... Or probably fix this bug in a future version. Unfortunately I had to stop using it on a daily basis as it was impossible to use.

Ah ... Yes, I already tried to reinstall Firefox, run without any extension, all those standard operations ... Nothing unusual. If I deactivate the ad blocker I have no problem, the ads have become a problem.

Facebook tab causes a lot of memory-related errors on Firefox 80

I use Firefox on a daily basis. It's open 24/7 on my PC and has 7 pinned tabs because I use them all almost everyday - they are mostly e-mail. It's set to auto-update and I think it recently updated to version 80. Ever since Facebook announced the removal of Facebook Classic and rolled out a Messenger update yesterday, I have been getting weird memory-related issues. Since I don't use Firefox exclusively, I just minimize it but it's always running. When I maximize it back to use it, the Facebook pinned tab does something crazy and all my other software start complaining that Windows ran out of memory and sometimes even crashing them though Firefox doesn't and the Facebook page looks garbled like its CSS gets corrupted. I am using the new Facebook - the one that looks like an app - in Dark Mode. The issue only happens when I use Facebook. The issue started happening yesterday.

Important note: this only started happening yesterday. The only thing that changed was the update to Firefox 80 and the roll out of the new Facebook Messenger update. This PC is rarely shut down. Also, when I am using the network (like downloading games from Steam or Epic Games or GOG Galaxy), the issue worsens and Explorer crashes and closes everything in my notification area.

Current workaround: I closed the Facebook pinned tab and everything seems to be working fine.

Specs: Firefox version 80 (no plugins) Windows 10 version 2004 Core-i7 4790K, 32Gb RAM, SSD + 19 Terabytes total HDD NVidia RTX 2070 Super with latest Game Ready drivers

So, I've been using the Picture-in-Picture feature of Firefox a lot - when it works well, it's a really useful feature, especially if, like me, you use a second screen to play the video on, but don't like the overlay constantly popping up over the video. And, when the video is in a modern, widescreen aspect ratio, it usually works.

The problem is that when I try to watch, in fullscreen, a video that's in a 4:3 ratio, as many are on Netflix, Amazon and the like, the Picture-in-Picture window will often, presumably registering the black space on either side, zoom right into the video, cutting off a massive portion of the frame and filling the screen completely. Sometimes it doesn't do that at all, sometime it can be fixed by restarting the video and fiddling with the timings and sometimes there's just seemingly nothing I can do and it just will not stop doing it, no matter how much I reload or what I do!

Please tell me how I can get the damn thing to just keep the video in place and stop it deciding "Hey! You don't need to see all of the video, do you?! No, of course you don't!"
