The last time I updated Firefox I had such a bad time I swore never to update it again, however yesterday an addon I use couldn't work without updating. So I bit the bullet and did. I've been regretting it ever since. At best it works slightly slower than my old version which was 61.0.1. At worst I miss the days of internet explorer.

The most common issues are 1. White Wheel: When I swap tabs or open a new one I often get a spinning white wheel. This can last anywhere from seconds to at least ten minutes. I've asked around and tried everything suggested, nothing has gotten rid of it.

2. Scripts breaking: This started later on after installing it. Almost any time I refresh a tab or open a new one a script in some other tab breaks. At least twice I was just watching a video in one tab, not even touching the computer and a script breaks in another tab.

Please, I just want my browser to run properly. WITHOUT having to sacrifice my settings/history/bookmarks/addons

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Windows Home 10 20H2

I have about 700+ bookmarks, which I like to access from the Bookmarks sidebar. There are of course even more items in my browsing history. My issue is, that Firefox reacts rather "extremely" to scrolling on the touchpad. Even when I two-finger-drag "very very slowly", multiple items just "fly by" at bewildering speed. It's impossible for me to perform a precise scroll action.

It not only affects the sidebars that but also the "Library" window (both left and right lists). Strangely, the actual webpages scroll normally. Text area fields on web forms with many lines of text also scroll precisely.

In about:config, all scroll- and mouse-wheel-related settings are set to default values. I also tried with a completely new profile (after importing the bookmarks). That also didn't help.

I was away from my Windows 10 computer and when I came back Firefox was gone and replaced by a notice that it had crashed and would need to restart. Restart could not proceed because Firefox was still running. I went to the Task Manager to end the Firefox process but the Task Manager was not able to stop it. I had to reboot the computer to end Firefox. You know a crash is real bad when the OS can't even terminate it. Just wanted to see if someone could pass this along to the developers as the feedback page does not appear to be working. Thanks

Main Monitor: BenQ XL2411Z 1920x1080 144hz Second monitor> AOC 1920x1060 60hz

Having youtube and twitch playback the youtube video flickers alot. Webrender is enabled.

I have had this issue for a couple of months.

Setting the 144hz monitor to 120hz the bug stops and youtube works flawlessly.

GPU: Used 1060 gtx 6gb and 970 gtx 4gb, nvidia driver version: 460.89

Can't record/take a screenshot of the problem. It is an webrender bug.

Hi, on my MAC M1 (ARM Processor) I have firefox installed. The browser freezes every time I put the computer into sleep mode or when I use the lock screen or simply when I restart the system. Once I have re-logged in to my MAC, the firefox window reopens but all the tabs are locked. So, the only solution is to close the window and reopen a new window. How can I fix it? Thanks

Servus mitanand, am Freitag hat die IT-Abteilung in unserem Unternehmen das letzte Update von Windoof ausgeroll, seither erhalte ich weder einen Ton, wenn ich in FF UTube-Inhalte abspiele, noch spielt FF Dateien ab, die auf einer Webseite in einem Player eingebettet sind (Fehelermeldung, dass der Inhalt nicht abgespielt werden kann). Ich würde diesen Affen von MaxiSchrott gern endlich einmal mit dem Rohrstock eins auf die Finger geben, denn bei jedem Update darf ich meine wertvolle Lebenszeit auf irgendeinen Bugfix verschwenden, der mich nicht die Bohne interessiert. Ich komme aus einer Zeit, da galt der Spruch "Never change a runnig system" und so halte ich das auch heute noch, es sei denn, ich werde von höheren Instanzen dazu gezwungen. Ich will, dass diese Scheißkisten laufen, ohne dass ich ständig was dran schrauben muss. Da waren die Autos mit den alten Vergasern noch weniger anfällig. Hat jemand eine Idee, wie ich dieses Problem (kein Ton, kein Abspielen von Player-Inhalten) beheben kann? Neuester FF ist schon installiert, Rechner auch schon xmal neu gestartet, alle möglichen Audio-Einstellungen schon übverprüft - daran liegt es also nicht. Das ist der Grund, weshalb ich mich dagegen wehre, immer mehr meiner Intelligent und Verantwort an diese Scheißkisten abzugeben. Sie machen dumm, verantwortungs- und hilflos.

Hi all, on Friday the IT department in our company rolled out the latest update of Windoof, since then I get neither a sound when I play UTube content in FF, nor does FF play files that are embedded in a player on a website (Fehelermeldung that the content can not be played). I would love to finally give these monkeys from MaxiSchrott one on the fingers with the cane, because with every update I get to waste my precious lifetime on some bug fix that I don't give a damn about. I come from a time when the saying "Never change a runnig system" was true and that's how I still hold it today, unless I'm forced to by higher authorities. I want these crap boxes to run without me having to constantly screw something to them. That's when the cars with the old carburetors were even less prone to failure. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this problem (no sound, no player content playing)? I already installed the newest FF, restarted the computer several times, checked all possible audio settings - so that's not the problem. That's the reason why I'm resisting to give more and more of my intelligence and responsibility to these crap boxes. They make you stupid, irresponsible and helpless. This is a automated translation because I have not enough time to write it twice and, of course, all English speaking providers meanmwhile use machine translated text to "support" us, which is horroble to understand.

I use a Wacom Intuos Pro m. I set one of the pen buttons to operate as scroll/pan. When I use scroll/pan in a page to scroll upwards or downwards, if the page hasvideo content (youtube, vmeo), the video playhead moves forward or backwards at the same tiem the page moves. In other words, page scrolling and video scrolling do not work separately, and this only happens in Firefox windows, not in Firefox mac, nor with other Windows browsers.

How can I set up Firefox so the pan/scroll works as expected, namely, only having effect on the scrolling of the page?

Thanks

Dear Mozilla support,

I have to switch on or off my company's VPN access several times a day, and each time I switch the VPN, the Firefox simply refuses to use a new connection, behaving as there is no internet connection at all, forcing me to reset the browser each time so it could "accommodate to a new network environment". My company gives employees the Cisco AnyConnect SW for establishing the VPN access to the company's infrastructure.

Are you able to "fix" this please, as I haven't experienced this behavior at other browsers as well (Opera, IE)?

Hi guys,

I am experiencing this issue for quite a long time, after certain Windows 10 update Facebook on Firefox becomes really unusable, it is really slow, specially on features when there is typing involved. That means Messenger, commenting posts on Facebook, creating new posts etc. But even other stuff is slow as it is scrolling down, going through photos etc.

This is happening on my both PCs, my CPUs are Ryzen 5 3600, and Intel I7-4770, and GPU GTX 1660S, GTX 1050Ti, so I don`t see that hardware should bottleneck this in any case. In the meantime, I did restart with Safe mode, refreshed Firefox, even reinstalled which does not help. I have tried with other browsers, Facebook works fine there. Currently I am using latest Firefox 84.0.2 64bit on both PCs, and Windows 10 is 20H2 version.

Hi ,

I am happy that now I can use Firefox with fillable /saveable pdf files most of the time. Unfortunately sometime I have a problem if later I open the pdf with other software: I filled the first 3 line of https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/cra-arc/formspubs/pbg/t3ret/t3ret-fill-20e.pdf and when I saved it and reopened with Microsoft Edge and Xodo some number are missing in the field "Trust account number". I refuse to use Acrobat Reader. Then I can not change the type of fonts or put bold. Could you please fix it?

Have a nice day
