Numerous Random Script Conflicts Disabling Browser

Hello,

This is my version of a Firefox usability review for 2021.

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro, on new hardware, and run identical add-ons and extensions in both Firefox and Chrome most recent versions (auto-update).

For the last few years about 10% of all websites I visit weekly have some kind of functionality that does not work in Firefox, but does work in Chrome. This forces users (at least me) in to the arms of another browser, because Chrome *always* works.

Today, I couldn't lookup a license key on Kaspersky's website due to a 'Cross-Origin Request Blocked:' error. Result was; key not found. Switching to Chrome, I had my key in seconds. This kind of problem happens A LOT.

I get frustrated because either the security level of Firefox is insanely high and unforgiving, or Chrome is completely unsafe. But we know that's not true either. Why am I safe in Chrome, but not in Firefox when viewing the exact same web pages? My anti-virus isn't enough?

As websites lean more and more heavily on scripts, Firefox becomes more and more unusable for me.

To be clear, I am a network admin who has been experiencing these security SNAFU's in Firefox that require switching to Chrome in order to compete registration, fill out some forms, or access some kind of AJAX type info or CDN files, that is extremely frustrating when you don't want to use Google's spy tool, Chrome.

I DO appreciate the Firefox browser, and its developers. This is just an FYI - no reply needed.

There's a (Malian?) support article at https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1280856 wherein the poster was trying to reach a website and was getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. I sometimes get this same error trying to connect to work and have to use another browser. A respondent on the thread suggested disabling Honey. I don't have Honey, but I have Coupert.

I disabled Coupert and was able to connect. The trouble was intermittent; I'll let you know if it recurs.

On a number of sites (YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, etc), after pausing and resuming a video or jumping to a new timestamp, the video will play but be muted. The video player does not show it is muted, but no sound is playing. Jumping to another timestamp or using a keyboard shortcut to jump a couple of seconds will resume audio playback. This started happening within the last few days. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.

Hello everyone,

I'm an avid user of Firefox latest on Manjaro, up to date.

Since yesterday, when I updated from Firefox 87.0-1 to 87.0-2, I have a strange bug using DuckduckGo.

What happens ?

  • When on DuckduckGo result page, clicking a link won't open when using the "Open in another tab" setting
  • I will open the link if that setting is not used
  • I can open it in a new tab with the right-click menu, or by ctrl-clicking it.
  • When hovering above a link, the bottom-left tooltip does show up and the cursor does become a hand, suggesting the link should work. Alas, it doesn't.

What did I try ?

  • I did restart in "safe mode", with all addons disabled.
  • I did reset the cache.
  • I tried testing the same behavior on Google, and it did work as expected.
  • I tried DDG in another browser (Gnome Web/Epiphany), and it worked as expected.

I have yet to notice the same issue with any other website. Any Idea where I should report this minor, but annoying but ?

Thanks & Cheers, -- JAB

Hi

I can access mewe.com with the last firefox, but only while browsing using the "private mode". All other websites are ok, only this one. When I enter the url "mewe.com", it switches to https://..... and then... nothing, no relad available, just a desperately empty page. Obviously, all other browsers don't have such problems.

Hello everybody,

There are more and more websites that have functions that no longer work with Firefox and force me to use Chromium instead. Do you if there is any chance that an upcoming release will put everything right?

This will best be reported with a screenshot, added. Just today Firefox is not displaying many websites completely. I dare say "most websites" since I haven't done much yet. Websites I know should work are messed up like the attached screenshot of a Microsoft site (answers.microsoft.com/......) (showing from the upper-left - that's pretty much how the entire page looks.)

No recent changes. All normal yesterday. No firefox updates or updated/new add-ons. I have disabled any likely add-ons. I've cleared FF's cache. The same sites open properly in Chrome.

Posting this in case it helps anyone else even though my report doesn't have much searchable detail. I'm off to reboot and such. I have a hunch this is the type of problem that "seems to fix itself", having been in I.T. for a.... long time :D

Hi So my problem started a few days ago i don't remember exactly when. The graphs on the binance exchange site have stopped updating for me on Firefox. I mean when i load the page with the graph in it the graph is static and i have to keep refreshing the entire page to see changes in the graph. I should mention that the graphs on a different site that i use work fine and display the prices in real time.

I also had microsoft edge and the same problem happens there too but today i installed chrome and the problem in NOT present there. So the site and graphs update and work properly in chrome but not in Firefox or edge. I prefer to use Firefox for everything!

-I tried Firefox safe mode and the problem is still there. -I also made a new Firefox profile and the problem is still there. -Finally i even refreshed Firefox but even that didnt fix the problem. I should mention that i have Firefox sync enabled so after i refreshed Firefox it automatically installed back all my addons (and other settings?) so even though it is refreshed it looks and behaves exactly like before i don't know if that "cancels" the effects of the refresh.

I am running win10 and my antivirus is kaspersky. I had Kaspesky on "pause protection" while i was troubleshooting but that didnt help either. I hope i managed to explain everything because i find it hard to express my self in English. If you need me to clarify anything let me know. I hope someone can help me with this because I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance Kiri

Hello,

i'm having a problem navigating inside some of the websites on Firefox for Mac. Either the page is grey, and I can't navigate the page or I can't scroll down the page. It's not doing it on evry websites but it's become really annoying.

I tried to go into Preferences and in the privacy to see if there was somthing there, but the privacy setting is set to standard and I don't see anything there that can prevent what's happening.

Thank you for your help in this matter. Kssaw
