A new Firefox downloaded to my Macbook Air (61.0.1). Not only are key elements missing in this new design (where is the line of most visited sites that use to be near the top of the window?), but this thing is slow and nonresponsive. It can take up to a minute to load the home page -- something that used to happen immediately. And there are commands that just don't work at all -- or at least they seem not to work at all.

What did you do? Why is this version so radically different than all the wonderful previous ones? I want to use and support Firefox, but I can't use this one at all.

Basic issue: is this just me, or have many people complained about this? If it's many people, will you fix it?

So I just return to Firefox after a long time. There are things to catch up. When I enter fullscreen for YouTube videos (not the website fullscreen, F11), there is slide down message about YouTube is now in fullscreen and a button to exit fullscreen right away. How to not continue receiving such message? Also, when I exit fullscreen, YouTube re-scale and the animation is quite slow, you can feel the video frame is exiting full-screen and downsizing to smaller frame. Is there an option for me make it enter/exit fullscreen w/o such notice message or animation?

After update my firefox to latest 61.0.1 (32bit) version, I notice it is slow responding to the URL I entered and slow reaching the webpage, sometimes even timeout and need to retry a few times. If more than 2 tab is open, the symptom will be very obvious, the tabs load the webpage in a slow order.

I already refresh my Firefox, the issue remains. Therefore I would like revert to previous version which does not have the above issue.

Firefox fails to load YouTube videos on refresh/re-visit

First attempt to play a video plays instantly, but clicking any video I've viewed since a cache clear or if I refresh the page, the videos load shifted to the right (no sidebar video list). After a second, the sidebar loads in pushing the video to the 'normal' position, and as soon as this happens the video--that has played around 1 second--fails.

I have disabled all addons, refreshed firefox, disabled HW accel. Starting Firefox in safemode completely breaks it and I can't even navigate to a page, let alone test YouTube. I've reinstalled only 2 of the addons I had before since they're clearly not the issue.

Win10 1803, Firefox Quantum 61, Nvidia GTX 1080ti (driver WHQL 398.36)

Hi, I have an issue with my Firefox browser Master Password settings. I seem to be unable to Remove the Master Password ot change it in any way?

When I attempt to remove my password I type it in the Master Password to the box and the Remove button becomes clickable, but pressing it does nothing. The box doesn't go away, nothing updates, noting loads.. I can only get the bos to close by pressing X or Cancel, just to see the check-mark from Master Password is still there. If I attempt to change my Master Password, a notification pops up "unable to change Master Password".

I am 100% sure I am typing it correctly (I wouldn't get trough any logins if I didn't) firefox just refuses to modify Master Password in any way. Whats up with that?

Since upgrading to package firefox 61.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, the pop-up menus are all invisible.

I can click the "hamburger" menu and nothing visibly happens. But then I can click in the area below it and the invisible menu item is activated. The same behavior happens for things like the Pocket button.

I've tried safe mode and refreshing Firefox. The behavior stays the same in both cases. I'm lost as to what to do other than roll back to an older version.

When browsing through several open tabs only active one loads and works properly. For example when i am watching twitch stream and open another webpage in new tab and switch to it, twitch stream stops almost immediately. Same happens if i start playing video on youtube and then switch to new tab, video will play preloaded part (light grey part) and will stop there and wont even try to load rest of the video until i select youtube tab again. I never had this problem until few months ago. I was able to open 4-5 twitch streams in highest quality at the same time and all them worked fine. I can still do it in another web-browser but i dont want to switch from firefox. Can someone help me fix this?

When I attempt to load two Twitch streams in two different tabs, one in each monitor, only the currently "focused" tab will buffer and stream video. The other will have a perpetual "loading circle" as if it is trying to buffer.

Occasionally the suspended stream will SEEM to resume, and attempt to "catch up" by rapidly skipping any missed frames (usually minutes of content skipped over).

If I "click into" the problem tab and bring it into focus, it will immediately play the stream as normal, while the one that WAS playing properly will quickly begin to encounter the same issue.

If one tab is loaded, but not visible, then the audio from it will play without a problem while the other, fully visible tab will play both audio and video as normal.

This issue has only occurred during the past week. It does not occur while watching simultaneous YouTube videos (making me think it is specific to Twitch) and it does not occur when using Google Chrome (making me think it is specific to Firefox).

In "Cookies and Site Data" I have selected "Accept cookies and site data from web sites" and "Keep Until: Firefox is Closed".

When I close and reopen the browser, cookies are cleared for all sites I have visited (except for pinned tabs, but that's okay with me). Great! However, site data is not cleared. When I click "Manage Data.." I see a list of several sites, all showing no cookies but some number of KB of site data.

How can I make sure that site data is also cleared whenever I close Firefox?

I should note that I have no sites set as exceptions, other than ones set to block cookies altogether.

This is similar to an existing question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1230363), but in that one the asker is having trouble with cookies, which are working fine for me. I tried applying the suggested fix from there (setting browser.sessionstore.privacy_level to 2) but it didn't make a difference.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 61.0.1 64bit with Opensuse Tumbleweed (Gnome). Recently (Not sure but maybe everything started after a distribution upgrade including Firefox and some drivers), Firefox causes the whole system to freeze when visiting some websites (including Yahoo email login, this page while trying to post a question here or even the command about:support) and the only solution is to hard reset.

I tried everything (a clean reinstall, a new profile, disabling Hardware acceleration, disabling the plugins and the add-ons) but nothing seems to work except the safe mode (that I'm using right now).

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.
