Firefox 89 on Fedora 33 is completely and utterly unusable. How could this happen?

Fedora 33 shipped with firefox-81. Just recently the first firefox update to fedora 33 landed. That update is firefox-89.

It is dead, no, excuse me, it's DEAD and DEAD slow. Youtube and streaming video sites stutter so badly that I'm lucky to get 2-3 frames per minute even if the audio holds up. firefox-89 is also slow on other fronts, no, excuse me, it's DEAD slow on all fronts.

I have a large number of windows and tabs and cutting that number by 25 to 30% has no noticable effect.

After searching for solutions, the top suggestion was to disable "proton", but no that had only a tiny effect.

What are the mozilla people thinking? My guess is that they are not thinking.

Another worthy question is, how did this awful piece of software get distributed by the fedora project.

Look, I've been using mostly firefox since it's beginning, but come on, this is ridiculous.

I downgraded to firefox-81 but now some of my streaming services have stopped working because of an unsupported browser. Additionally, gmail does not work after the downgrade.

I know I'm not a loner in this and I know that firefox-89 is not the most recent version to disappoint in a major way. I predict that firefox will be history within a year unless Mozilla pulls it's act together.

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

Hi

For two days I've been searching on the web and in here with no luck.

Initially as Facebook is loading ... I can see the video for a brief second, then its turns grey with the message "Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video."

Appears to only be a problem on Facebook and only in FF (chrome facebook videos work fine)

Using

FF 81.0 (64-Bit) Windows 10 Version 2004

Tried with all addon's disabled. Tried with anti virus disabled

Tried adding "Flash Video Player for Facebook" addon

Videos all work and play in chrome.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

When I go to a web page which is a PDF, the web page used to load as a PDF. Now there are 2 tabs, one is blank and has an address which refers to the PDF location, and the other is a PDF saved to the Temp folder (eg. file:///C:/Users/USER/AppData/Local/Temp/some_PDF.pdf)

My preference is: www.some_website/some_PDF.pdf

This is because I save the tabs, and the next time I use Firefox, the temporary PDF is not loaded anymore. As well, I prefer 1 tab instead of 2.

Where is the setting to adjust?

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

For example, when I click file > save, nothing happens, the files also are not saved when using "save link as" or clicking on a link. The browser seems to perform all other functions flawlessly.
