I support open source movement and against tech giants and hence I love and want to use Firefox. I would use Firefox even if it is slow because on most sites delay of few seconds doesn't matter. But I do stock market trading and trading website of my broker (finvasia.com) is very slow in Firefox. On all chromium based browsers slowness is not there.

In trading delay of even one second is a matter of profit and loss (specially in scalping) and hence using Firefox is not possible as it is very slow for finvasia.com.

I have done screen recordings to give an idea of degree of slowness. First video is when finvisa is opened in a chromium based browser MIN. As you can see that when I change from holdings to position etc then delay is very less. (the yellow circle on the screen hardly complete one complete rotation and holding or position scree is opened). In this video you can also see that when I place order or modify it, everything happens so quickly.

Finvasia on chromium based browser

But in the below video (finvasia in firefox) you can see that when I switch from holding to position (00:2) the yellow circle (just above the pointer) makes 9 complete circle before showing the screen. When I click on Buy button on order screen (00:34) the order doesn't get fulfilled (the order rectangle didn't disappear). At 00:47 it said connection issue (There is no connection issue, wifi is working fine and never show any connection issue in chromium based browsers but in Firefox it shows in every order).

I kept waiting but order rectangle didn't go so finally I had to close it manually (1:45). After that when I switched to order screen it didn't show any single order. I tried to refresh the order screen (1:59) but nothing happened. So finally I refreshed the tab of browser. It was also hanged and after few click it worked and then you can see that there were many orders on order screen.

Finvasia on Firefox

As trading involves money and such delay can cause huge loss. Trading on Finvaisa.com is not possible if a person is using Firefox.

I also tried safe mode, and refreshing the Firefox, but problem didn't get solved. Kindly fix this problem.

Firefox version is latest (99) and I am attaching screenshot to give details about my system and OS.

I am running Firefox 99.0 on an iMac with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7. With a recent update to Firefox I can no longer print using the system dialog box as default. I did already try switching the "print.tab_modal.enabled preference" to "false" and that simply doesn't work. When that flag is set to "false" and I print from within Firefox, the Firefox print dialog comes up, not the system print dialog. Why can't I change it so that the system print dialog comes up by default?????

I just ran "C Cleaner" to clean my computer. At the end, it said to ask the browser if there is a 64 bit Windows compatible version available? It takes 21 seconds to open my browser.

After firefox update to 100.0 - i can't use any of my addons, and cant install new one. All my current updates appears in "disabled" status, and there's no "enable" button. I have many addons, so it's the global problem.

Also, i can't install any of updates from addons.mozilla.org, i get message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". All addon xpi files are downloaded without problem using "save as", also, after clicking "install" on addons website i see download progress.

Please help to resolve this issue!

There are a number of old threads regarding this and having worked through them it is still unresolved. 1) I have cleared cache/cookies 2) I have disabled all extensions 3) I have turned off tracking 4) I have tried in safe mode - still the same.

This is not just on one website - it is on ALL that have Facebook feeds. It is NOT just on my laptop - I have asked others to try - they have the same result - blank page. ...so please don't suggest re-installing Firefox!!

An example is: https://dragonsdensoftplay.co.uk/News-Events/news-events.html

The feed works ok in other browsers.

Thank you

Dear Madam or Sir,

since updating to Firefox 99, we are unable to view PDF files in Firefox, because we are unable to select how to handle PDF files in the settings, cf. 1.PNG We don’t have any enterprise policies enabled except for disabling updates, cf. 2.PNG. We tried disabling hardware acceleration, but it did not help, cf. 3.PNG We tried safe mode and an empty user profile, both to no avail.

This problem seems to be irrespective of the user profile because when I roam my user profile to a machine with FF 93 ESR, there is no issue and I can view PDFs in the browser.

Is there any suggestion how to return the built-in PDF viewer?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards

Victor

The latest example is the button to sign into LinkedIn. It is not working in Firefox, but it does in other browsers. I have other examples just from today. I have used firefox as default for many years. I assume this is a security thing, but these are basic links. I have no add-ons or other complications. Most times, I do not even realize there is a problem, but when I feel something is wrong, I try another browser and it works. Thank you.

On certain websites I notices I have 'unknown errors' when trying to log in.

Usually this is remedied by either using Chrome or clearing cookies and the cache.

Both of there are inconvenient and result in a great deal of wasted time.

The usual response by these websites is "get Mozilla to fix this".

I'm getting sick of this.

I don't want to switch to Chrome but I will have to if this persists.

Amazon.com works on Firefox on my second desktop computer and on my iPhone. It does not work properly on my primary desktop, this one It does work on my desktop using Edge. Everything in Amazon.com works on this desktop except I cannot view my previous orders, the link in the upper right corner ""returns and orders." It begins to load but the orders do not load. I cannot see any of them.

I uninstalled Firefox, ran Ccleaner to clean the registry, then it's Health feature, I probably should have restarted after doing that.

I installed a new download of Firefox twice; it fails.
