1. YouTube video lags too much (which less happened in Microsoft edge) My machine is dual core & 4gb ram with a igpu called intel Q45/Q43 but i think 720p should be not lagging in this pc. I always can switch browser but i love fire fox syncing thing that's why im trying not to shift. But, if Mozilla won't fix my problem then i had to shift it. some days ago like 6months ago or long ago mozilla fixed firefox video playback by a update and it was really great and worked for me. 720p was working really fine. but now on recent update... it really lags too much.

2. fire fox becoming heavy, we all know chrome is memory hungry and uses very much ram, but i compared firefox to chrome before it was true firefox used less ram then chrome. but nowadays firefox uses much ram then chrome which is really wierd so fix it aswell.

3.some times facebook photos do not show and shows a text" a man standing with an umbrella"

4. please more optimize for a low end pc bcz I & many other people can't even afford mid sepc PC.

I loved firefox for a long, i don't want to leave it! So, please Mozilla fix my problem. ._.

Firefox 109 and earlier condenses multiple spaces in a filename into a single space on download

I am using Firefox and other browsers to attempt to download files containing multiple spaces in the filename, but only Firefox is condensing the multiple spaces down to a single space when downloading. I've seen this in another support request, dated June of 2021, but there was no resolution posted. Any help would be appreciated. I can see the app displaying the file correctly, and when moving the file among the different stops in the app, the spaces are replaced by the '+' char, so as to keep track of the spaces. However, as soon as it lands on the download option, it retains only a single space. Thanks in advance.

Good evening Community,

I have a prolem with my firefox browser since about 3 weeks. So I hope somebody around here can help me with that. Somehow it occurred that HTML5 videos need very long to load. Sometimes it even shows me the message that I should restart the browser. I really cant find the problem. I have the newest version: 109.0.1 (64-Bit) I deletet the cache. I also didnt install any Plugins or addons. Since the problem occured.

I tried other Browsers on my Computer and it works just fine. By the way I also have a pretty new Computer, the specs are fine.

The only thing I didnt try, is to reinstall Firefox. Because i have a couple of tasks opened which I dont want to lose or put in booksmarks. But that also cant be the problem. Because I always had around 10-20 tasks opened in the past.

I hope somebody can help me or had the same problem and knows how to fix it.

Sorry for my bad englisch.

Nice regards. BS

I love Firefox but it has a market share of just around 7% and is even lower than Edge (which is terrible IMO). Chrome has the most users at around 65%.

Although Firefox is a much better browser, the perception for many is that Chrome is better due to much faster browser loading. I have Chrome and Firefox installed on Windows 11 with the same extensions and Chrome loads my home page in 2 sec whereas Firefox takes 7 sec to load. Even after deleting all cookies, cache and web history, Firefox still takes 7 sec to load my home page.

It's great to prioritize security, flexibility etc and I love these aspects of Firefox, but by not doing something to improve the awful loading times, you are leaving users with the impression that Firefox is inferior and LOSING the browser battle.

I'm a writer who relies heavily on instant access to Dictionary by Merriam-Webster. I recently got a new laptop and the dictionary will not load. It eventually will load but in a truncated looking format that is not useful. It works fine if I use Microsoft Explorer. I have cleared my cache but it still will not load and I have no trouble with anything else. This is super inconvenient. Is there some setting for Dictionary I'm missing?

After downloading the latest update this morning in desperation, Firefox crashed on first character of the primary password again and again and again. This time, started new tab, tried to type L into the address line and Firefox crashed AGAIN. Eventually, I have found that if I open a new tab and input a character into the address bar, I get one of three results. a) I input L and an L appears. If that happens, I can go on to use Firefox. b) I input L and get a totally random character appear. Could be S, or £ or $ or something else. In which case, I can't use Firefox. c) Firefox crashes.

Whoa, that sounds really severe. When this happens, is the Mozilla Crash Reporter dialog coming up? If so, you can share your crash reports with Mozilla Support volunteers for feedback on what might be causing that. See: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/firefox-crashes-asking-support

Yes, this is the 6th attempt to start Firefox and keep it going beyond the first keystroke input. I keep restarting till it works. I do not do anything else except restart, then try to input a keystroke. I can copy and paste and all is well till I hit enter or some other keystroke. It sucks and the Firefox team must be getting mad at the crash reports. Taking out all the plugins didn't help, and neither did restart in safe mode. I just keep getting the same problem.

Starting a few weeks ago, Firefox stopped being able to save files if a dialog box was involved. (If it doesn't take a dialog box, like a JavaScript-triggered file download, then the file saves just fine.) It also can't open files.

I'm running Firefox on linux, Ubuntu 22.10 specifically. When I run it from a terminal and then watch the error output, if I try ^O or ^S, the error message on console is this:

(firefox:35195): Gtk-WARNING **: 10:54:26.232: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop

When I try to get Firefox to open an external URL handler (In this case, using a Zoom link in an email message in Thunderbird, which opens in Firefox and then Firefox is supposed to launch Zoom), the error message on console is this:

[Parent 35195, Main Thread] WARNING: Could not launch default application for URI: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.OpenURI” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop: 'glib warning', file /build/firefox/parts/firefox/build/toolkit/xre/nsSigHandlers.cpp:167

    • (firefox:35195): WARNING **: 10:55:56.064: Could not launch default application for URI: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.OpenURI” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop

I did some googling and it looks like bugs in Firefox spawning error messages like this have been opened, patched and closed in previous years, so I guess it's that smae bug again? I don't know. I've been waiting for the dev team to spot this one and patch it but I updated Firefox and it's still present.

I've tried opening in Safe Mode, no change. I've tried disabling all my extensions, no change. I've tried refreshing Firefox (ie resetting to default settings), no change. I followed some advice in a bug thread to install the package xdg-desktop-portal, which changed the open&save error messages to the current ones, but besides that no luck.

Any ideas? I know this is a dense one, sorry. Thanks for your volunteer work helping ppl like me :)

print preview shows then is quickly covered by the preview loading window that never goes away. I have refreshed, reloaded and gone back to a previous version of firefox to no avail. Unable to print anything from the browser. Windows 7 professional, HP desktop with I5. This used to work fine. Printers work fine from word. With the exception that the DJ2450 crops the right and lower of any image pasted into the document. But the DJ1500 does not do this. Both printers HP. Have even installed new printer drivers, but print preview still does not work. I will be installing Linux in the near future but do not know if this will fix the problem. Has anyone tried this?

I use firefox to play music, so I usually have a window in the background while I do other things. When playback starts after a pause, or between songs, the playback window often steals keyboard focus. So if I'm typing in another window, I'm interrupted. Very annoying. It happens on at least youtube, navidrome, and jellyfin.

I've found a few others reporting similar issues that suggest setting `mozilla.widget.raise-on-setfocus` to `false` - but this doesn't work for me. How can I figure out what's triggering this keyboard steal so I can fix it?

I'm using firefox esr 102.7.0esr, but it's been happening for a while. I've tried the debian builds and the official firefox.com builds, same behavior. Thanks for any suggestions.

I´m running PortableThunderbird 102.6.1 (64-bit) and PortableFirefox 109.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows10.

For quite a long time, the following issue exists; it´s driving me mad so that today I´m making an effort to ask for help:

When I click a link in a Thunderbird-message, that link will be opened in an unknown Firefox installation; i.e. a Firefox that does not look like "my" Firefox (with all the bookmarks and set-ups); sometimes it also first installs updates before opening a link, which suggests it is in fact "another" installation. That behavior appears no matter clicking a link in TBird directly or right-clicking it and selecting "open link in browser".

Where/how can I force TBird to use "my" Ffox installation, and how can I find & delete that "other" Ffox installation ?

Thank you & best regards

It is a struggle to log into gmail. Once I manage to get into gmail and start opening messages, it hangs on loading and eventually I receive an error message such as "Oops ... the system encountered a problem (#001) or another version is (#2003) and often end up with the message, "The conversation you requested could not be loaded. I have cleared cache and cookies, refreshed the firefox browser, and within my profile I have renamed cookies.sqlite. I don't have an extensions turned on. I also tried about.config to switch the value from true to false for security.tis.enable_0rtt-data. I am working on Windows 10 desk top and I am able to open gmail okay in chrome. I recently switched to Verizon Fios - I don't know if that is related or not. Also opening gmail in private viewing does not change anything and opening it in safe mode has not changed anything. Would anyone have any suggestions?
