When running previous FF V-90, (and all previous versions for years now) use of Corel Photo-Paint X4 was fine. Since updating FF to 107 (after a brief try of 115 which was fully uninstalled almost immediately) when I try to "cut" part of an image, although the rectangle tool shows during selection, it vanishes as soon as the mouse is stopped. The uploaded image shows the process - which ends up with the required result ---- it's just that the important part of "What I Have Selected" seems to have been nobbled by FF. Can anyone suggest anything please?

Thanks,

Ian

I have used both the latest downloads for Firefox and the Private Browsing and have the same problem. Tabs won't open. Even a new tab to open Mozilla support won't open; I had to copy the URL and then open in the Private Browsing program to get in here. Then, the tabs that were already open on various sites freeze. What's going on?

Screen goes black when some videos play - audio continues, but screen is black. I am sire this is a Firefox problem - I have successfully watched videos using BING browser - same videos go black on Firefox. I have refreshed Firefox, cleared cache, restarted Firefox - cleaned cookies. Turned accelerator off then back on - because nothing changed. Does not do this with all videos, just some - some You Tube videos play, others do not. I have Windows 10 and McAfee Live Safe - all programs are current and up to dated.

Hello all,

For some reason, I can no longer upload or download files, with the pop-up window failing to appear entirely. I can upload folders through, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, but individual files don't work.

I've reset my browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it, opened it in troubleshooting mode, disabled enhanced tracking protection, but nothing seemed to work. I've tested another browser, and I was able to upload and download files just fine.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 using Firefox 107.0.1.

Hallo,

is it possible to automatically perform downloads in the library one after the other?

I have about 30 or 40 downloads in the list (videos), 2 to 5 GB in size, which of course take time to download. I have to start every single download individually and sit next to it.

Although I have a fast line (230 MBit per second), it still takes a few minutes for each file.

Is it possible that firefox or an addon is monitoring this list and after completing the first one downloads the next one and then gradually all the other starts?

Thanks

Roland

If the browser privacy is supposed to block cross-site cookies, EVEN WITH enhanced tracking prevention and permanent browsing mode enabled, why doesn't it do its job? I still have to go in and revoke the cookie and place that address in the "exceptions - cookies & site data" to block and the same address STILL comes right back. If that feature isn't going to work, there's no point in offering it.

I love Firefox (use it on all devices), but unless an option will actually do what it's supposed to do, don't offer it.

phil.schreiber9664@gmail.com said

Everytime I try to close my Firefox browser window, it just stops. There are multiple processes taking in excess of 200 or 300K in memory that seem to be causing the problem. I have to manually end the process just to close Firefox, and it is quite annoying. I just checked, my Firefox is up to date. Yesterday I deleted and re-installed Firefox, but it's still doing the same thing. This is kind of driving me nuts to be honest. I have Chrome, Opera, and Edge also installed on my computer so I'm ready to jetisson Firefox but thought I'd see what the community has to say first.

UPDATE - Firefox worked great for a few days but the issue returned not too soon after that. Whatever happened in the last update was only good temporarily. I've already done all the initial troubleshooting steps and believe I may have discovered the root cause of the issue.

There are multiple processes in Firefox whose size is over 100,000 kilobytes in size. Some are over 200K, 300K, and 400K.

As I compare this with other browsers I have on my computer, Edge has no processes over 100K, and neither does Chrome or Opera. I believe this is not coincidence, there is something internal to Firefox which creates large processes that is causing delays in closing it. Once again the problem has started annoying me and has started giving me thoughts of switching browsers again.

You can see it in the screenshots I posted.

Video playback stutters in Firefox and Firefox Nightly but not in an external player (mpv) or Edge. Hardware acceleration on/off makes no difference. Using the latest Radeon driver 22.11.2. Most noticeable during slow pan like this https://youtube.com/clip/Ugkx7jP_XuVB7i-O6ljGHQ_NjPmEakzvD7yM

The video playback stuttering isn't new but I only stated looking into it now. No idea how long it's been like this. At first I thought it might be caused by running my monitors at true 120Hz and 60Hz instead of a fractional framerate but then the stuttering should be visible on other apps too. Switching to a fractional 60 didn't change anything in Firefox.

I am a WordPress website developer and I am trying out the Elementor page builder. When I edit a page in Firefox the Elementor app hangs on loading. Wheb I try to edit the same page in Chrome or Edge Elementor loads as expected. I confirmed this with a different website on a different theme. I performed all optimizations on https://happyaddons.com/fix-elementor-editor-not-loading-issue/and checked all system requirements on https://elementor.com/help/requirements/, but no avail. I cleared the Firefox cache, turned off protection for the site. But with the same settings and environment the pages do load Elementor in Edge and Chrome. Any ideas what else I can try to make this work in Firefox? I use all the newest versions of WordPress, themes, plugins, and the browsers Firefox, Edge and Chrome. Running Windows 11 on a brand new laptop.

How can I STOP MS from updating software when I am NOT FINISHED with my work, but I have to get some sleep?

Hi Knowledgeable People! I hope someone can help me out here. I'm gonna explain this as best I can and I hope someone can suggest a way to get thru this issue. I am so tired of MS coming in & telling me that they are going to update my system that night when no one will be using it (assuming that I sleep at night). There is only an OK button or the "X" out of the notification (which is what I usually do). There is NO button that says "NO You CAN'T DO it until I say it's OK". I usually then put my POWER option into SLEEP mode. Sometimes I use Task Manager to "crash FF" so I don't lose any tabs from any windows that are open. I've had it work before, but last night I forgot to shut off the WiFi in Windows (not the hotspot)—I'm not even sure that that's the reason it worked the last time.

Here's the usual scenario: I spend 2 days or more on taking a bunch of screenshots from a webinar so I can understand the process that I'm trying to learn. Those screenshots are cropped & put in the application folder (an older version of PaintShop Pro). I use the older version, b/c I can do it much faster than I can in the newer version. They send me this pop-up that they're going to install the updates "when no one's using it after hours."

So surprise, I come out here this morning and I've lost all my work (just under 100 shots) that was located in PSP's temp folder. ALL MY WORK is gone!

What can I do to STOP M.S. from installing updates when I'm not finished with the work I'm doing and I need to go to sleep? Thanks for your help!

After 107.0.1, the tab bar disappears

In fully updated Windows 10 (x64), running either 64-bit or 32-bit Firefox, the tab bar in the current Release channel of Firefox disappears. No changes have been made to the Firefox profile on my computer, including no edits in CSS, etc. (I never bother with such things). Updating to 108 and higher causes the tab bar to disappear. In 108+, a single tab appears "somewhere" at the bottom of the window (its location appears to be random), and the New Tab button ("+") is gone as well. Disabling all extensions has no effect. Reverting back to 107.0.1 (either 32-bit or 64-bit) fixes the problem. This situation has been tested several times with the same result every time. Consequently, I have edited the Firefox registry policy to disable updating so I can run 107.0.1 without constantly getting the Firefox "nag window." Any thoughts on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I lost my logins out of nowhere, good thing is that autofill keeps working so I can still log in. I don't really get why it happened, but I would like to recover them. I still have all of my bookmarks and history, etc. When I looked out in the profile folder, I found out that the logins.json file actually has all of my logins (halg of them doesn't have the password, but I guess it's because it's encrypted or something), so I don't really get why they aren't displayed when I open view passwords and logins.

OK, I am very angry ....

FF asks me to update, when i launch the browser, and it continues doing so when browsing. I HATE THIS BEHAVIOUR and I know how to use a computer.

     I do not need to be mollycoddled by some 2bit computer company that has no idea what Professional computer users need. 
         Bare in mind I am in the mood to migrate away from FF completely without a tick button answer. 
         I am also in the mood to take drastic action if this is not resolved. IT SHOULD BE IN THE SOFTWARE IF I SELECT IT.

I want to use FF without an automatic update, which the software DOES NOT ALLOW (removed threat as per [rules and guidelines here).

I am running FF 107.01 (i don't care if its out of date).

Previous .json answer did not work. neither did going into settings.

only a complete ban on updates will suffice. (i will update myself as i feel like it.) I will not tolerate another answer.

FIX IT NOW!!!!
