Firefox very slow for www.finvasia.com, unable to do trading in firefox

I support open source movement and against tech giants and hence I love and want to use Firefox. I would use Firefox even if it is slow because on most sites delay of few seconds doesn't matter. But I do stock market trading and trading website of my broker (finvasia.com) is very slow in Firefox. On all chromium based browsers slowness is not there.

In trading delay of even one second is a matter of profit and loss (specially in scalping) and hence using Firefox is not possible as it is very slow for finvasia.com.

I have done screen recordings to give an idea of degree of slowness. First video is when finvisa is opened in a chromium based browser MIN. As you can see that when I change from holdings to position etc then delay is very less. (the yellow circle on the screen hardly complete one complete rotation and holding or position scree is opened). In this video you can also see that when I place order or modify it, everything happens so quickly.

Finvasia on chromium based browser

But in the below video (finvasia in firefox) you can see that when I switch from holding to position (00:2) the yellow circle (just above the pointer) makes 9 complete circle before showing the screen. When I click on Buy button on order screen (00:34) the order doesn't get fulfilled (the order rectangle didn't disappear). At 00:47 it said connection issue (There is no connection issue, wifi is working fine and never show any connection issue in chromium based browsers but in Firefox it shows in every order).

I kept waiting but order rectangle didn't go so finally I had to close it manually (1:45). After that when I switched to order screen it didn't show any single order. I tried to refresh the order screen (1:59) but nothing happened. So finally I refreshed the tab of browser. It was also hanged and after few click it worked and then you can see that there were many orders on order screen.

Finvasia on Firefox

As trading involves money and such delay can cause huge loss. Trading on Finvaisa.com is not possible if a person is using Firefox.

I also tried safe mode, and refreshing the Firefox, but problem didn't get solved. Kindly fix this problem.

Firefox version is latest (99) and I am attaching screenshot to give details about my system and OS.

The styles look astonishingly wrong, I really think it is a problem on my end, but cant figure out how to fix it, as you can see in the pictures, text is incorrectly sized and/or justified, color gradients are also weird looking, as well as sizing of many elements and tons of other things.

I have tried to completely remove Firefox from my system and reinstalling it, that did not seem to fix it. The reason I think is is a problem of mine is because i was playing with fonts (emojis weren't working on my system,not on Firefox tho, now they are in both)

I don't think the things i did with the fonts did anything to Firefox, since this problem only showed up on Firefox, but since the problem arrived just after a reboot while I was installing and removing the fonts, I think its important to mention.

To sum up I think the problem comes from my local configuration of Firefox, I probably did not delete it all before reinstalling, I am running (Arch btw) a current version of EndevourOS.

There is a specific challenge that i am facing with Firefox and some of the solutions that i have tried is not helping me to resolve the issue.

What's the issue: There are double spaces issue in Firefox

Where is it : 1) Menu 1.1) It's in the Menu New Tab is seen to me as New Tab (more spaces are for demonstration only) 1.2) All the Menu items which have space are show with more then one space including

  1.2.1) File Menu -> New   Window (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.2) Edit Menu -> Select     All (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.3) View-> Page     Style (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
   1.2.4) All the rest of the menus where ever there is a space there is a double space

2) URL : I type something in the URL and they are double spaced "this is test" will look like "this is test"

   THIS URL looks to be double spaced on firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1338204?page=2
   like below

3) Numbers in the browser :

   Any number displayed is double spaced in the browser output (most of the times, most of the web pages)
   
   

4) Bookmarks : All bookmarks are double spaced

5) Settings:

Settings: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled is still set to false but seems to have no effect toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets=true browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled=false

Since the Firefox 99 update loading some pages (for example, the Gmail sign-in page) using Firefox on my Linux Mint machine, that I'm running a VNC remote desktop session on, results in a crash.

Crash report ID: bp-5dc1e89d-dc1f-40f2-9dbe-7f4380220419

I've tried running Firefox in safe-mode and the crash doesn't happen, but turning off hardware acceleration, swapping to default themes, removing all extensions, and completely removing Firefox and the .mozilla folder and then re-installing Firefox have not changed the crash behaviour in the absence of the safe-mode flag.

I would appreciate help in identifying what other paths of investigation I can take.

I have some local services under a local domain name: example.lena

Every time I try to access any of those services that are not in my history, Firefox chooses to search google instead of load up the url, with an option appearing under the toolbar saying: "Did you mean to go to http://example.lena/?

How can I force Firefox to first try the url instead of the google search?

On certain websites I notices I have 'unknown errors' when trying to log in.

Usually this is remedied by either using Chrome or clearing cookies and the cache.

Both of there are inconvenient and result in a great deal of wasted time.

The usual response by these websites is "get Mozilla to fix this".

I'm getting sick of this.

I don't want to switch to Chrome but I will have to if this persists.

This was going to be a question about Firefox being unable to display the file picker dialog, but I managed to find a solution that worked for me along the way. Since it was nowhere near the top of Google's results, I thought I'll share my solution in the hopes that this would help someone facing this same issue.

The hardware:

  • Asus UM425IA Zenbook (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU)

Worked in:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Firefox provided by APT repository
  • Xorg display server

Not working in:

  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Firefox 99.0.1 provided by snap
  • Wayland display server
  • File picker worked briefly on fresh install, but something (not sure what) quickly breaks file picker functionality

The symptoms:

  • Firefox stopped being able to open file picker dialogs
  • Right clicking an image and selecting "Save Image As..." does nothing
  • With forms that accept file upload (such as on this post question page "Add images (optional):"), clicking "Browse" does nothing
  • File downloads work correctly when set to "Save files to ..." under Settings, but nothing happens when set to "Always ask you where to save files"
  • No response to "Ctrl + O" open file shortcut

Similar questions and solutions:

Things I tried that did not work:

  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Starting with add-ons disabled
  • Troubleshoot mode
  • Clearing startup cache
  • Clearing cookies and site data
  • Clearing history
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Creating and using a new profile
  • Deleting the `xulstore.json` file from the profile directory
  • Toggling all permissions under Ubuntu Settings > Applications > Firefox to off and then back to on
  • chmod 777 ~/Downloads
  • Disabling native file picker "ui.allow_platform_file_picker = false"

And finally, what fixed it for me was to go into "about:config" and change "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker" from "2" to "0". Credit to this post that clued me in.

I really hope this saves someone else 2 days of hair pulling and I would appreciate advice from someone more knowledgeable than me on:

  • Why this fixed the problem
  • Whether I should be opening a bug report either against Firefox, or Ubuntu
  • Whether I should also be changing "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.mime-handler" and "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.settings", both are currently set to "2"

As per this issue I reported a while back, I was experiencing odd issue with automatic redirect to HTTPS for some private development sites.

I finally found a fix for the issue. The problem appears to be with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials Extension which apparently *may automatically redirect to the http site. In order to prevent this, I added my development sites to 'Unprotected Sites' and this prevented DuckDuckGo from doing the automatic redirect to https.

  • - Odd thing is that I had multiple domains pointing to the same web instance and only one of the domains was having this issue with the DDG extension. Both were going to the same IP through a HTTP proxy. The proxy and web server were not the issue. This symptom points to an maybe an issue in Firefox....

In summary, be wary of odd redirects and the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension if you are doing web development work.

I'm struggling to get Firefox to use `http` instead of `https` when I'm doing development on my laptop. Playing with the `HTTPS-only` in the settings didn't make difference. With enable or not. I tried to add my `localhost` to exception list, but Firefox still tries to use `https.`

I understand the security concern from Firefox team, but if I'm trying to load by typing `http,` I would appreciate if Firefox gave me a benefit of doubt that I know what I'm doing. Maybe I could disable this feature temporarily. Why force `https` on `localhost`?

Please allow us some flexibility.

Hi all :)

From a fresh Linux Debian Bullseye I try to connect to a local machine with Firefox (v97 64-bits) by its hostname (avahi server with default domain "local") with the port 6180 bound to a remote web service port (61 is the distant machine IP and 80 is the forwarded port).

When I want to open this URL : http://bionic.local:6180/ FF displays "We can't find this site ... Unable to connect to server at bionic.local ... check your network connection and firewall"

BUT ping bionic.local works perfectly and resolve the good IP address from the Chromium navigator the same URL works without a problem, I can open the distant web site.

This workaround works : add a static resolution in the /etc/hosts file : 192.168.0.71 bionic bionic.local => so FF works in the expected way for now ! But as I said this a workaround and a bad solution.

I supposed too the port was blocked because I accessed an unusual port. So I tried this without success.

How the hell make that FF v97 allows me to use an unusual port ? Or is it bound to the domain "local" which is no more accepted by FF ?

Thank you in advance for your help. With adelphity, lnj

Hi,

is there a config option to prevent the showing of user/pw proposals when opening a website for which user account data is saved? When i'm logging into a website with already saved user data, i get account proposals (as ff saves the data "per domain", say if you have 3 accounts to one website, e.g. a test user, an administrator and a cms administrator, they are all presented where needed content may be...) see pict. I would like to opt out this behavior, as i have more than one website with 2 or more accounts.

Greetings, I would like to know how would one go about recording FPS using new Firefox profiler tool? I am coming from chrome, where it is one of the lines in the resulting graph after recording is finished but after intense googling and trying to hover over everything in the profiler I am yet to find it here. I suspect that I am missing something obvious here. I found many old showcases where it was clearly present right in the inspect window which doesn't seem to be the case now. I attached the picture of precisely what I need(from the old firefox version)
