There is a site that I've been accessing for months from firefox. Today, all my attempts to access it result in "Forbidden: You don't have permission to access this resource." If I bring up a safari browser, the exact same URL loads fine. I didn't change any firefox configuration settings. Any ideas?

Firefox seems to be a very high user of disc resources. I can hear the drive it's installed on being continuously accessed, and can see in Task Manager it's almost always using the most disc resources of any process. Even with one or a few tabs open, when Firefox isn't being actively used.

Can anyone tell me what is going on, and most importantly if there is a way to reduce the endless disc access. thx,

The browser prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it"

This happens whether I am using laptop with Windows 10 and Firefox or tablet with Firefox for Android, using a Google profile

My wife called me in this afternoon when big red error message popped up "saying" it is a red alert and the web page used Apple's logo on it, said the old 2011 iMac, OS 10.10.5 Yosemite, is "blocked" and has a virus. It had an 877 phone number to call but we failed to write it down. She did nothing after that. When I saw that I pressed the red window page kill button, upper left. Got the rotating rainbow ball. . . computer working overtime. Next, Command-W to kill the webpage, nada. Finally, pressed the hardware ON/OFF button behind left side of screen. On SAFE restart I opened my account not hers and found Firefox had thin, white, flashing lines across the tab bar area(full width) and tabs were flashing individually. Every time you open a tab, this happens or possibly when it is accessing. So, I upgraded Firefox, leaving the OLD version intact. Upgrade I NOW notice is the 64 bit version.

Is there a fix out there? or, is this thing "infected" with the CCP virus or something? Fix for it?

I will shut down and re-open the old version and see if it still happens and post an update here.

I have what I think is a specific video problem. Videos from the Washington Post get the message “This video is currently not available”. Other videos, e.g. from the New York Times do work. Washington Post videos work with Chrome and Opera.

The problem is on a new Dell Inspiron 5502 running Windows 10 and Ubuntu with dual boot. The problem only occurs under Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. It does not occur under Windows Firefox.

The current Firefox is 84.0.2. The problem did occur under 84.0 but I didn’t have time to pursue it.

The add-ons manager under extensions has no entries. Under plugins there is only “OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems”.

Under preferences, performance, hardware acceleration is not selected and the content process limit is left at 8.

Running in safe mode does not help.

I had a different video problem on a pair of the hardware visible at https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1320396?utm_campaign=questions-reply&utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email#answer-1381141 This is a different machine and a different problem.

Firefox freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds, even in Safe Mode. Task Manager shows one or two of firefox's sub-tasks as "Not responding" and CPU at 100%.

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

I have Excel files stored in a Google shared folder. These are all macro enabled (.xlsm) files. When I attempt to download to my local drive using Firefox the file is changed from .xlsm to .xlsx resulting in all the VBA programs and functions inactive. This only happens with Firefox - current version is 84.0.2. Downloads using Chrome and Edge are OK.

Has anyone else experienced this and how can I fix this.

Hello, we develop an angular application. One of our users couldn't login any more. He uses Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) under Mac. He get's the error `ERROR DOMException: The quota has been exceeded` in Console. Reloading Page even with COMMAND+R didn't work. We deleted the cashed files under settings, as displayed in https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/gallery/images/2018-04-29-04-08-27-fabea4.png (with both checkboxes). It only worked when we deleted the file webappstorage.sqlite in profile folder. Is that a bug?

Thanks in advance.

I recently started having my browser become VERY VERY slow. I noticed that this occurred because it is always waiting for information/data for s.yimg.com. When I looked up info about this it said that this is a nasty advertisement browser add-on. I ran Avast scan, CCleaner, and Spybot, but nothing detected it or fixed the problem. Please help, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Any need for specific information will be addressed.

Thanks

Good day,

Since updating windows 10 to version 20h2, Firefox is Laggy and never done this before updating windows10 to 20h2. I would seriously look into this as MS.Edge is working smooth but all other browsers are lagging. Microsoft has done something with the update which is making all other browsers lag except for theirs. This is unfair practice as we all like using Firefox and Microsoft wants to take the monopoly with Edge. Please Firefox Team resolve this issue or please look into it as i am not the only one experiencing this issue after updating windows 10 in recent days.

I recently updated Windows, and now Firefox is refusing to load any webpages. Whenever I try to load a page nothing happens and the main part of the webpage fails to load and the main body of the browser is grey and empty.

It also won't load the Options menu. Uninstalling and reinstalling hasn't changed anything.

This issue doesn't happen in my other browsers.

Firefox has a "list all tabs" button, which looks like a "v" in the tabs bar, next to the plus. It works great but when I maximize the window (not F11 full screen, but Windows OS Maximize Window), this button disappears. Seems like a bug; I can't think why you would want that button to be removed when the window is maximized.

I wonder if someone could help on some questions about `GC` on `firefox`.

    • Q1-** Is possible to call the action performed when I click on the button `GC` using javascript?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/JgoNx.png

    • Q2-** on `about:config` there's an option `javascript.options.gc_delay.full`, is this option the same than clicking on the button `gc` on `about:memory`?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/dimKW.png

    • Q3-** I'm searching about of what of these enumerated options does, and found that:

`1-` Is the default amount of time to wait from the user being idle to starting a shrinking GC.

`2-` `javascript.options.gc_delay` ??

`3-` `javascript.options.gc_delay.full` ??

`4-` `javascript.options.ion.full.threshold` ??

If someone knows the answer to these questions.
