Since last weekend or thereabouts (17 July 2021) my Firefox on the 3 devices/platforms I use (see title) is not connecting to a specific website. Edge connects and is usable.

There is no error message, the screen in the tab remains blank and the activity indicator stops after a few seconds.

The website address is https://colony.litopia.com . The website is functioning and I have just used it, loaded images etc using Edge - I am a writer and use it every day, usually LOL.

All the other sites I use are ok, as is the main domain https://litopia.com . The hyperlink from the parent to the subdomain also hangs in the same way. I have spokent to other users of the site and they say it is ok, although it is noted as usually being a very slow site.

I have tried connection via cellphone router and wired broadband from different physical locations. Firefox troubleshooting not reporting any errors.

I use adblock on Win10 and Linux and have tried disabling that. FB container only on win 10. All platforms are up to date with Firefox. 90.0.2. I believe the issue arose when I went to 90.0

I haven't shared my data because the devices are disparate.

Comments appreciated, thanks.

I have a gamer computer with all the drivers updated and recently I have switched from chrome to mozilla for privacy reasons, I installed a couple of extensions like adblocker plus, Simple Translate, Awesome Screenshot, Lightbeam and I am realizing that it is considerably much slower than chrome ... I'm going to start deleting all the extensions to see what happens ...

iMac macOS 11.5 Firefox 90.0.2

Firefox pretty much crashed every time I quit. Doesn't matter if I'm looking at a web page or close all windows before quitting.

Restarting in Trouble Shoot mode doesn't help either.

The cause seems to be synchronisation - if I sign out of my account and no longer synchronise, the problem goes away and I can quit without Firefox crashing.

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??

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?

Pureflix videos stopped working on Mozilla Firefox and on brave browsers. It works fine in edge browser. I put pureflix.com in the exceptions for cookies and popups in the firefox settings. Pureflix help said they had no other help to give me and to take it to Firefox. They said no other customers were have the same problem. videos like youtube work fine in firefox and brave. When I click on the watch it button, it goes to black screen and never plays. no error message. the firefox toolbar is still at the top and working fine. The blackscreen is in the content area. Using windows defender for fire wall. using dell laptop inspirion 13.

Firefox become hopelessly show to play even 480p videos from youtube 90% CPU usage while playing 720p video from youtube freezing randomly. (same issue on other notebooks, so I have a strong feeling it is not a hardware/notebook related issue) Hardware:

  • CPU: i7-6500U
  • RAM: 8GB / DDR3
  • Video: Intel HD graphics
  • Memory usage never runs above 60%

OS: doesn't matter, experiencing same issue on windows 7/10 and linux.

to compare, same video 1080p/60Hz played with:

  • brave/chromium ~30..35% cpu
  • mpv playing same video directly from youtube ~ 19..25% cpu
  • Firefox - constantly freezing, youtube autmatically switching from 1080p to 720p, then to 480p, playing 480p @ 60..90% cpu usage

I have tried everything from this forum and from others - nothing helped.

And finally, last nail in a coffin - even my very old notebook Core2duo with 2GB ram playing 720p videos with brave browser without issues while firefox struggling to play 480p, constantly freezing and making notebook fan run like crazy.

Firefox is literally forcing me to use other browser.

Since the last Firefox update some websites do not open, but spin forever. Same site and same time open fine in Chrome etc. Same with opening a website from an email, very often they do not open but spin: copying URL to Chrome and they open correctly.

Something must have changed for the worse in the latest Firefox edition.

Occasionally, my browser will freeze and become unresponsive. I can't figure out a consistent trigger for when it occurs. Whenever it happens, my browser will not allow me to click into any of the tabs or on any of the websites, and only shows a resize icon.

You can see an example of what I mean here.

I've tried reinstalling firefox, removing all cache and cookies. This is super odd since this only happens on my desktop computer, and not with any of my other machines (which use the same plugins).

Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.

I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012 Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina) Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.

Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?

There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.

I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.
