Firefox version 103.0 causes Windows (intel HD) graphics driver to crash and restart repeatedly. Temporary fix = disable hardware acceleration in firefox. I had to force a shutdown by holding down the power button on my laptop to get out of this infinate loop. Mouse becomes unresponsive and does not appear or move after a few crash and restarts of graphics driver. One way to stop it early on is to close firefox by keep clicking the tab close x or top right firefox page close x. Problem only on one website that i listed below.

here is the windows events entry(i edited out my computer name)...

I have 5 of these events but the crash and restart happened many more times than that. I believe the first happened yesterday.

System details... Laptop Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit - many updates installed but not the last years worth before EOL Kaspersky Total Security 21.3.10.391(j) Database release date 26/07/2022 15:02 Firefox version 103.0 (64 bit) Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0.9600/18163. update versions 11.0.27 (kb3124275). Wifi internet via netgear dongle Intel HD graphics (this is either 2000 or 3000 or inbetween). Driver version: 9.17.10.4229. Driver date: 26/05/2015. Driver provider: Intel Corporation. Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher. Processor Intel Pentium B960 Ram 16GB HDD 750GB around 15GB free

website i loaded in firefox that gives me this problem... cams.omexxx.com (note it is a pron site). I did not even click aree to terms.

To troubleshoot i did the following... 1) opened command prompt with admin priveledges and ran sfc /scannow it found no errors. 2) i reset all kaspersky settings back to default. 3) I refreshed firefox back to default settings. my addons were deleted after doing so and i did not add them back. 4) i uninstalled the intel hd graphics driver from device manager 5) i reinstalled the intel hd graphics driver downloaded and hash checked today same version as old driver. 6) even after the above problem remains 7) I tried loading the website that gives me this problem in microsoft internet explorer and i did NOT get the problem. 8) Done some google research online and then i went to... firefox menu - tools - settings - general - Performance - this was selected so i unselected it = Use recommended performance settings i unselected this option = Use hardware acceleration when available 9) I went to the problem website and i no longer got the problem/bug so now i have a temporary workaround/solution.

Please investigate and fix this at your end if you can or find out what is going on. Think about turning off hardware acceleration by default in firefox as it is obviously bug prone. This problem only started in the last couple/few days. Did the website in question change something in the last days? before that i accessed it with no problems. Did firefox update recently? I had not changed my intel driver until i got this bug. I have other event viewer errors here is an example of one that may or may not be relevant that has appeared a lot lately (it states atal error)...

For the last month the amount of letters/numbers/symbols in my address bar has slowly become less. It only happens when I have more than 1 tab &/or window open. It is now at the point where I'll have no more than a dozen characters in the address bar down to absolutely nothing being displayed there. I had HP do a wipe of my HDD & reinstall of the entire MS OS a month ago. I noticed the issue a few days after that but it was also after the first of 2 FF updates. Sometimes it has bugs but usually the next update fixes it completely; but not this time. I'm not sure if it Is a FF issue. I have checked all thru here and even scrubbed thru MS Win10 support pages and found nothing anywhere similar. Attached is a current screenshot. As you can see, there are only 4 characters in this header while 2 others have None and one has 11 +, 4 numbers and 6 random letters. This has me totally baffled.

The past couple weeks while I'm trying to use Firefox on windows 10 desktop, it will out of the blue come up with No Internet Connection. Sometimes it happens within 5 min. or up to 30 min. On the rare occasion I am able to view my new emails & links w/o a problem. The automatic update was done a few days ago but didn't really seem to make that much difference. The lights on modem continue green & router is orange for normal. So I know it is not my service provider. Besides I can use internet on Edge w/o a problem. However I have used Firefox for years & really like it. I'm not much of a techie person, so simple explanation/fix on my issue would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

Yet again, another Firefox update that makes the software unusable! I can't just HOPE that my browser is going to work after an update. I depend on my computer being able to access the Internet and sites that I have bookmarked in my browser. However, it seems that every few updates is a complete and utter mess.

I have found a solution. I have exported my bookmarks as HTML so that I can load them into Google Chrome. I have "backed up my browser" by installing Google Chrome and using that. I haven't had a problem with it and I now have a STABLE browser to access the Internet.

Why can't we get Firefox upgrades that are truly upgrades and not just public bug testing? I don't remember this many UNSTABLE releases in the first few years of Firefox. I guest you've reached the "Kitchen Sink Limitation". I used to use Netscape until they tried to add everything to it including the kitchen sink. It got slow and buggy and it just wasn't worth the effort for me to have to keep worrying about whether or not my browser would be stable. So I changed over to the NEW, SMARTER, SMALLER, FASTER Firefox. Ahhhhhhh, the good old days.

Maybe if you came out with Firefox Classic, that allowed you to access the internet and only add on features that you needed. A Firefox that was small and fast and STABLE. Gee, maybe then I'd be able to pin you to my taskbar again and set you as my default browser. Unfortunately, your "updates" are almost guaranteed to provide me with less stability than the "old" version it replaces.

Here's hoping that you fix your problems...I've already fixed mine!

When I'm in Yahoo mail inbox, I can see and read my (new) mail, but most of the commands don't work and I cannot see emails older than 2020 (it just shows blank lines for them). The emails never get read, nor can I check the boxes for commands. I disabled and refreshed with my uBlock, but it doesn't have any effect. Yahoo works normally when tried on Chrome.

Hello,

The past few weeks I have run into the issue where Soundcloud fails to load and returns an error. This is circumvented multiple ways. Either I open soundcloud in incognito mode and it works fine, or I clear the cache in normal mode. BUT in the second option soundcloud only works during the first visit.

I found a previous question asked here detailing the same exact issue but nobody found a solution that worked. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346767

Other info I think would be useful: Soundcloud works on my laptop running the same exact profile for firefox. Hinting to me that something else on my computer is in the way.

Deleting all history, cookies, cache, extensions; has not helped

I have attached the images below just as the previous poster has. Including the console log filled with errors.

Hopefully someone can help with this headache!

I am having this issue for months now. Im using firefox with a customized about:config modified to enhance privacy. Pretty sure that this is the reason for the green images, however i dont know which setting exactly may cause this...

Anyways the wired thing is, i use duckduckgo as search engine and when i klick on images the results are looking normally, however for privacy reasons i dont want to use duckduckgo anymore since they had a secret deal with microsoft, i have tried many alternatives but sadly all of them have the same issue (which duckduckgo doesnt) when i search for anything and klick on images either some/most or all results are entirely green. Why is this happening and how can i fix it?

Hello!

I have had this problem for about 9 months. The reason is somehow related to the autoplay of multimedia on web pages. Technical information is given at the end.

After starting work on the computer, all functions work correctly. The video plays normally. After several hours of working at the computer, scrolling through the feed on Instagram (before the video appears in the feed), or viewing stories, or opening a video on YouTube, the web page freezes for a few seconds, after which the screen also turns off for a few seconds (not goes blank), and when it is turned back on, the video either does not play at all showing the loading animation, or only the sound is played, and instead of the video, only a rectangle filled with a random color (black, green, pink) appears.

After that, ALL videos in ALL open tabs stop playing again. Google spreadsheets also stop working (sometimes it also happens because of them, not the video).

This issue also affects other programs on this PC. For example, Telegram Desktop. It shows previews of images and videos, stickers and GIFs, but when I try to open an image to full screen or play a video, the screen goes completely black. But at this time the video is playing and I can hear the sound. Although the mouse cursor is not showing, the controls work and I can close the view in the upper right corner.

Restarting programs does not solve the problem, but ending the Windows session or restarting helps.

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (21H2) Firefox: 103.0.1 64-bit currently, problems started since 80s version Hardware: Intel Core i3-7100 CPU @ 3.90GHz; RAM 8Gb; Intel HD Graphics 630

What has already been done:

 - disabling all add-ons
 - memory test using memtest
 - complete reinstallation of windows with formatting of the system disk

How can I gather logs or technical information about these crashes to find the cause?

PS. Sorry for the mistakes in the text. this is google translate
