I have been using Firefox for a number of years.

I primarily use a Sony Vaio PC using Windows 7.

I got an automatic update of Firefox Version 90.0.2 on 7/22/2021.

It is not working very well. Opening new tabs are hard. Will not close tabs very well, leaving unused space on top. Different sites show up on another sites tab. Worst of all, this new version is a memory hog, with me eventually having to reboot the PC to clear memory until the next time.

Can you please help?

Thanks in advance,

Joe Lisak

After latest update to 90.0.2 I'm no longer able to log in to an internal corporate website. This has worked fine before. Accessing the same site with Chrome or Edge still works fine but no longer with Firefox.

Error message: SSL_ERROR_CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN_ALERT

I have previously struggled with Certificate with Firefox but after enabled security.enterprise_roots.enabled in Config it has worked fine until now.

So what has changed this time and how to bypass? Obviously the cert/website works fine with other browsers.

Thanks Henrik

This seems a problem from a recent Firefox update. The feature to download and open a PDF file from a website with Firefox has a problem. It is now extremely slow to scroll through the pages and freezes at times. I instead use the open with Acrobat and that works well.

For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

I have Firefox on a couple of (Windows 10) PCs. This problem is happening on one of them. It has two profiles (users), and it's happening on both.

If I open Firefox, and then trying going to google.co.uk, or do any google related search, almost everytime there is an obvious 30-40s delay. Indeed, during this time I can even open up other web sites (immediate), and trying google.co.uk again, and delay continues to occur.

Opening up the Network Console in Firefox, the GET request can be seem and then like clockwork there is about a 41000ms delay until it then continues.

If I open in TroubleShoot mode, same issue.

If I open in a Private Window, the problem does NOT occur.

This problem does NOT happen on my other PCs with Firefox, or any other browser on the PC in question.

This is very frustrating :( You open firefox to do a google search and it takes tens of seconds to resolve (on the first attempt) :(

I am using linux kde neon on wayland. Firefox version 90. On ubuntu with gnome 40, my touchpad zoom works. I didn't have any problems on kubuntu either. But on Kde neon, gestures don't work. I forced the MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND = 1 setting to enable wayland support. About: support shows that wayland is supported by the browser. Also I tried the settings MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 = 1 and GTK_USE_PORTAL = 1, but they didn't help either. Gestures in the system itself work.

Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

When I open Google Maps it doesn't show the normal icons for navigation on the map. It doesn't do anything when I have hardware acceleration enabled and I type something in the search bar. If I disable hardware acceleration it does a search, but in no way can I get it to show the place I want to see. It just shows the map of Rotterdam, where Google thinks I live based on my IP address.

It does work in Safari though, so it's a Firefox problem. I hope you can fix it. Google seems to give the FF team lots of problems.

when embedding a bigger video in firefox i got audio bugs. It crackles like an old movie. No problems in Chrome.

The video was converted with VLC to MP4/MOV with H-264 video and MPEG audio codecs. Because of its a very high quality video, the file size and Bitrates are very high. Is it possible, that firefox has a problem with that?

I know, usually you should never offering a video with that size on a web template, but its local hosted for an kiosk-mode project.

Example File:

FILE Name: Holliday_Hawaii_2019.mp4 Type: MP4 File Size: 5.39 GB (5.78.399.926 Bytes)

VIDEO Resolution: 1920 x 1080 px Data rate: 8082 kBit/s Total bitrate: 8721 kBit/s Frame rate: 23.98 Pictures/Second

AUDIO Bit rate: 638 kBit/s Channels: 2 Audio sampl: 44.100 kHze rate

Hello Unfortunately, the Pinterest browser button in Firefox does not work since a few days, - instead the Pinterest message window appears in the upper right corner of the screen saying „you are not logged in", plus a red login button (see screenshot added) On the Pinterest page, however, I then see every time that I am very well logged in. Tried several things, but no lasting success: - clicking on the red login link provided by the browser button message. Then a login window appears, but before I can enter name and password, it disappears again and I end up (already logged in) on my Pinterest home feed page. I still can't get the pin saved, though. This can't be because I'm logged in at Google at the same time (- I also logged out of Google and tried again, same result). - I logged out on the Pinterest page and then tried again via the window popping up in Firefox when I click the Pinterest-browser-button. Doesn't make any difference. - restarted Firefox, - doesn't help either. - logged out on Pinterest, deleted the Pinterest addon in Firefox and reinstalled it. Then logged in on Pinterest via the button window that popped up again in Firefox (saying "You are not logged in") when I try to pin something. That looked like it works and the pin got saved. However, the next time Firefox is opened or the next try touse the button, it's back to "You are not logged in" again (- and all the rest described above). Looks for me like coming with the last Firefox update two days before.... So what to do now? please fix that, it's very frustrating! best, Gundula from Germany

Since a few days, Firefox pops up the Primary Password dialog every few hours.

I use a primary password since years, and this never happened before. Usually it asks for the primary password at startup and then never again. I don't use Sync.

What could it be? A change in version 90 that I updated to a few days ago?

I see on reddit other people reporting the same problem.
