hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

Hi,

My Firefox app has been refusing to startup since yesterday, just crashing every time it attempts to start. I assume it's because I have an exorbitant amount of tabs open, but I'm not 100% sure. I tried refreshing Firefox, but the problem is that attempting to refresh loses all my tabs with no way of getting them back. I've tried refreshing previously, and afterwards I would get the option to choose which tabs/windows I would like to restore, but now I'm not getting that option so I'm forced to see if there's any other solutions. I haven't lost any of my previous data after trying to refresh once, since it's saved in the profile in the "Old Firefox Data" folder, but I just want to see if there's any solution that won't require me to start fresh.

I've submitted a crash report through Firefox, the report ID is: bp-dd3d8911-2bc3-4471-a0b3-1f1a60220404

Please let me know if you can help or if there's any other information you need. Thank you!

I brought a new system with latest OS Big Sur, I'm using Firefox v49.1 (required version) for my official purpose. So I installed this version in my Mac and it works smoothly, suddenly it quits and showing crash alert. I reinstalled again and again, but it's not worked. I fed up with this issue. Please guide me to solve this. Previously I was using Mac with High Sierra OS. That time I haven't face this issue ever.

Crash? My Windows 10 tablet pro pop-up keyboard stops working for Hulu & YouTube so far. That's the main ones I'm on for that device. It won't keep popping up for me. Is there a way to be sure that Firefox messages always get to my main email? I want to be sure to get a notification, once someone can reply.

Get back to me fast please.

I discovered a little shield next to the URL, and read up on how sometimes the tracker blocker makes sites no longer work, I imagine you are getting a lot of calls like this? So I turned it off, did a refresh, no change, did a restart, no change, turned the computer, Macbook Pro OS Monterey 12.1, off for 20 minutes. no change. I'm furious, and having a hard time dealing with this.

The error message says: ''''The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.'''' Except it's worked fine for a week now. Until this morning. Any more ideas how I can get this to work? I realize you all are volunteers, but jeepers, there must be a way to get help sooner than maybe look back occasionally see if a volunteer has seen this. I'll try a different browser.

My Mac: macOS Monterey 12.5.1 Firefox: 105.0.1 Since I updated my system Firefox has trouble loading and closing some pages, especially my BOA and ATT.net email accounts. Any thoughts on why this is happening and what to do about it? It's especially concerning with the sites I go to to pay bills.

ATT.net I can sign in OK but then I get a page that says redirecting and it never loads. When I use Chrome, I'm not having a problem. All my bookmarks are set in Firefox so I'd rather not have to change them all over to Chrome. I can sign into my BOA account with no problem. When I sign out of BOA I get a window with a spinning dial that says signing out please wait but it never stops, leaving me wondering if it's exposed.

Thanks, Marnie McNamara

Hello: I found on a help page the info for submitting crash reports, but tonight's crash wasn't listed as a crash. I was just browsing and my screen went blank. When it returned, my tabs came back but they all have to be reset. e.g., I have to log back in to by Twitter, Facebook, and all other password protected accounts. This happens frequently and it is very annoying. I'm reporting this hoping that the problem can be fixed.

Sincerely,

I keep getting the pop up to enter my password. I can not get past the enter your password even though I have reset my password and I am told it has been reset. I no longer have my primary recovery key from many years ago. I retried to create a new recovery Key. No luck. I am now on a new ASUS VivoBook 15 I bought in 2021 to switch to. I want to use it to travel with. I have set up 2 laptops, 1 CPU and a cell phone with Firefox because I travel to Costa Rica for over 30 years and its the best to use in country and in the States. When I use my older equipment I go to Firefox on opening Windows. My Firefox Browser opens with the bookmarks I have had for the last 2 years until the newest updates. Recently, if I still can't get past the pop-up I press cancel and go into the URL address line, type in what I want anyway. It works for awhile then comes in with the pop-up password request again. I have not used Microsoft Edge. I can use Bing, I prefer Firefox. By the way, I often get 2 0r 3 Screens opening Firefox at the same time then receiving a notification that an older firefox version must already be open and to close it. I do and again it works for awhile then starts to be a problem again. My question is how can I get Firefox to run trouble free on my new laptop?

I didn’t really have a topic choice that really fit for this. I can download files if I right click and ‘save link as’. However, If I click a download button it doesn’t trigger any sort of action. Nothing happens. It doesn’t even show any activity in the download tab of the browser.

I have not tried my PC yet, but will circle back after I give that a shot as well.
