I was directed here from Mozilla Connect. Since the update a few days ago, my Firefox browser keeps freezing permanently. It seems to happen mostly when I interact with Google Search (sometimes just loading Google will cause it) but it does happen occasionally on other sites. When it freezes this way, the only fix is to End Task and reload. It will successfully reload to the state it was in just a few seconds before freezing. I'm on Windows 10. I keep everything (OS, browsers, etc.) up to date, so I doubt that would be a factor. I wonder if there could there be an issue with a Google-based script (hence it occurring on other sites)? I don't know how I'd test for that.

I can't for the life of me understand what is going on with my browser. Everytime I try to watch a video that I have purchased I get this error message:

"Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later."

I have tried searching for a solution but no avail. I have disabled and re-enabled DRM, bit it was a no go. I tried re-downloading firefox, still had the same issue. I created a new profile, still won't work! I have been searching for solutions constantly and tried so many but none seem to work. Finally someone suggested that I check my extensions and App data and I saw a sign that said:

"widevine decryption module provided by google inc. will be installed shortly"

but it has been almost a day and it still hasn't been installed. In advanced preferences I looked up widevine and saw this:

media.gmp-widevinecdm.autoupdate true media.gmp-widevinecdm.enabled true media.gmp-widevinecdm.lastDownloadFailReason Error: Failed downloading via ServiceRequest, status: 0, reason: error media.gmp-widevinecdm.lastDownloadFailed 1671609470 media.gmp-widevinecdm.lastInstallStart 1671609449 media.gmp-widevinecdm.visible true

Is the problem with my computer or internet?

When typing, Firefox will lag and not display the words until much later, making it hard to know what I'm typing. This applies to any app that I'm using on the browser. For example, I typed this whole paragraph before a single word appeared, and even then, it still took another 30 seconds to actually appear. I've already reset, refreshed, uninstalled and reinstalled, updated, everything like that. I have a couple extensions, AdBlock, Honey, WebRTC Lead Shield, and Return YouTube dislike. But I ran it in safe mode and the issue was still there. I'm running the latest version of Windows 11 if that makes any difference.

My problem is simple. I'm trying to use this supermarket website (continente.pt) and the website doesn't load up the images of the products. I have to reload a bunch of times until it finally does. I switched from Google chrome but apparently it was a big mistake, never thought Firefox was so crap. BTW, It's not my adblocker, turned off Enhanced tracking protection and cleared cookies. Nothing works. (on annex I show firefox and google chrome being used on the same website)

I tried all 3 states of `ui.trackpoint_hack.enabled` and it still doesn't work. Scrolling is working running in troubleshooting mode. I ran "refresh firefox" but it still doesn't work. I made sure all synced plugins were disabled and still doesn't work.

How can I fix it?

Firefox worked perfectly, but since a few days I can't download anything. I'm using Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu 22.04, version 110.0.1 (64 bits) canonical-002 - 1.0 With Chrome everything works perfectly so I assume it's a problem from Firefox.

When I open a PDF, a MP3 or any file, the "save" option doesn't display anything. Usually it opened a dialog where I could choose the folder where I wanted to download the file, but now I have nothing.

I have only 4 extensions: - adblocker ultimate - duckduckgo privacy essentials - vuejs dev tools - zotero connector

I always had them and I never encountered any problem.

Two updates ago, I had an issue where if I used any Google web products, I had weird network problems that just didn't go away (4000ms ping spikes every 5 packets). I noticed it was only when I was using Firefox, so i tried disabling add-ons and extensions, it still happened. I opened it in safe mode, it still happened. I tried using Chrome and Edge, both did not cause issues.

I reset my Firefox completely (There was some custom CSS to put tabs on bottom, where they belong) and it was perfectly fine! No issues! Everything was great for a few days!

Then you guys updated things again... and it was back... so I reset my Firefox again, and even straight out of the box, its still causing the issue, but now only when using google products, with or without add-ons, there is no custom CSS anymore either.

I do not know why its an issue, but it is, and it is ONLY with Firefox, and I really do not want to switch to Chrome or Edge... It also persists after Google is closed, until I restart Firefox.

I am unsure of specifically why this is happening now, but it is a MAJOR problem for me

I am getting repeated pop-up windows that say that Firefox has crashed, but Firefox is not running on my system. It is not in the Startups and I rarely use it.

Windows 10 Firefox v110.0

Is this malicious not related to Firefox? Does Firefox have a background task that is not visible on Task Manager? Or what?

Hi, I'm using Windows 10 and no malware or anything detected by my primary AV, bitdefender. I also tried with AVG but same results. Website works normally for about 5 seconds and then automatically redirect to http://www1.cdnsure.com/?tm=1&subid4=XXXXXXXXXXX=CDN%20Network&KW2=CDN%20Performance%20Monitoring&KW3=CDN%20Video%20Streaming&searchbox=0&domainname=0&backfill=0

(XXXXX are random numbers. I just replaced just to make sure nothing personal is there.)

Chrome, Edge and others works normally. Tried skip redirect extension, but no use. Tried VPN, tunneling, but same results. I don't care much about security. So if there is a way to stop redirecting part, please help.


FF is my main browser and I don't want to reset or reinstall.

Excessive apparmor log entries on Ubuntu platform

OS version: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (jammy), 64-bit (amd64, x86_64). Firefox version: 110.0 (64-bit) (NOTE: the issue was noticed with version 109.0, too)

Firefox package was installed on Ubuntu through 'APT', using the Mozilla Team repository (https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/mozillateam/ppa/ubuntu/). It caught my attention that an excessive amount of Firefox related 'DENIED' AppArmor log messages is generated during the browser activity.

According to messages, Firefox is occasionally denied read access to '/sys/devices/' area and read/write access to 'oom_score_adj' target in '/proc/'. Could somebody clarify why would that access be required for regular browser operations? I'm a bit puzzled as I haven't noticed anything similar with the older Ubuntu and Firefox versions. A complete suppression of those messages is also an option as long as there's no negative impact on application's performance.

I already posted this question to Ubuntu forum but seems like nobody there could provide an explanation. I'd appreciate any input or hint.

Following is the sample of referred log messages:

I've been using Firefox browser for over a decade to do university business (e.g., submit grades, internal proposal review processing and approval, etc.). But since December, I am having catastrophic failures. Sometimes with an error message, sometimes just getting no response at all when submitting information in a browser-based university application. And yet, I can complete those functions when I immediately go to Chrome (once I remember that that might be a problem). I really don't want to use Chrome. Is there a change in Firefox (including something which I can change some settings in my browser to counteract), or a change in our university's software making Firefox incompatible? One returned error today was "Request Header Fields Too Large. The server refused this request because the request header fields are too large." [PS, I had to type this all over when I tried to share data with you about my system -- I had to click on "troubleshoot" information, which lost all the data I had previously entered... Sigh....]

I am using Firefox 102.8.0esr on openSUSE Leap 15.4. Two days ago Firefox stopped playing video clips on websites, notably BBC News and Facebook. On BBC News I get the error message "The content is not available in a compatible codec" but elsewhere just "video cannot be played". I have checked that the same video clips can be played without a problem in Google Chrome
