I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

Hi, I've upgraded to Windows 11 today and couldn't open Firefox since. Things I've already tried:

  • Reinstall Firefox and delete all old files (Appdata & Program files)
  • sfc /scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
  • Windows compatibilty mode
  • Firefox Troubleshoot mode won't open either
  • ipconfig /release & /flushdns & /renew
  • netsh int ip reset & netsh winsock reset

When opening Firefox in any way, i get a white window/just the window border which immediatly closes. When trying to start troubleshoot mode, the small window has the same issue.

I also checked the crashlogs and none were generated. The Windows event-logger also has no entries.

BTW: Here is a video of whats happening: https://youtu.be/AJP4rqZFxlY

I have no idea what to do - send help please.

Firefox has recently (within about a week or so) begun to crash randomly for me when switching between open tabs. The problem can be reliably replicated with ~6 tabs open, while quickly cycling between them. Firefox has been updated, and the crash still occurs even in troubleshooting mode. The most recent reported crash is Crash ID: 54793083-0841-470c-ae8a-687030240105. The flagged 'Crash Reason' is EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_WRITE

Hi.

Ever since I upgraded to version 123.0.1, I am constantly getting slowness on websites stuck in "Performing a TLS handshake..." Eventually the websites load, but it's frustrating. I have read about the various solutions and have tried the following: Disabled IPV6 Refreshed Firefox Reloaded Firefox Disabled and removed all extensions Restart in safe mode Create new profile

This was not happening in version 122 and before. Microsoft Edge does not have this problem, but I prefer to use Firefox. I am running Windows 11 Pro. Any ideas?

Thanks

There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

Nvidia RTX Super Resolution seems to only work very rarely or not at all compared to the Chrome version. In some instances it will upscale the Full-Screen Video. It will not interact with windowed videos at all. But it will never upscale a windowed version that exceeds the playback resolution.

Steps to reproduce for windowed videos:

  1. Open any youtube video
  2. Set the resolution to 480p or lower (as I am using a QHD 2560 x 1440p monitor)
  3. Playback the video and monitor Nvidia Control Panel to see if Super Resolution has activated.

Observation for windowed videos: Feature works in Chrome. Feature does not work in Firefox

Full-Screen and Super Resolution: I have no idea what is going on here, on very rare occasions it does work, for the most part it does not work at all. If I had to give a rough idea of when it works, I would say that it is more likely to work when Firefox has been freshly launched.

I could neither see an active change in the Control Panel, or notice anything in the video quality. Both a quality change and feedback in the Control Panel occur when using the feature in Chrome. I have tested on identical links, with identical quality settings.

I tried:

  • setting the Super Resolution Quality manually, instead of manually
  • an incognito tab

I am running version 125.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 11, and I can't check for updates and have to manually download each new version after given a popup telling me that the latest Firefox update couldn't be installed. I've tried restarting the computer, tried running the Mozilla Maintenance Service, and installing the latest updates for Firefox and Windows 11. Nothing I've tried has worked, and no other help article has helped me thus far.

I use Firefox in French... but lately, the contextual menu when right-clicking on a web page shows in English. The contextual menu when right-clicking on the Menu bar or Bookmarks toolbar, is partly in French, but with a section in English (the Menu bar)... sometimes, the Menu bar switches to English (I can't seem to isolate what makes it switch or switch back). Other menus show in French and setting for language is set to French.

Is there something I can do to fix this?

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

New computer, running Windows 11, McAfee LiveSafe came with for 30 day trial. I use Firefox, have since 1997. Just added Mozilla VPN. Old computer ran Xubuntu. Windows 11 needs antivirus because it's Windows. So. How compatible are McAfee LiveSafe and Firefox with Mozilla VPN? What suggestion, if any, does Mozilla have for an antivirus program that will work well for Windows 11 but not mess with Firefox and Mozilla VPN? Thank you.

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.

Hello team,

I'm not sure what happened, but I was not able to open Firefox after restarting my PC. I currently run Windows 11 on a fully upgraded rig.

Up until today, I have been trouble free. Error 1: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I tried several options - and have been googling/trying several steps for a couple of hours (after each step, I restarted the PC):

1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Attempted to use Command Lines to open Firefox https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/CommandLineOptions 3. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile - when I did this the new profile would not display in the Profile Manager, but it would display in the Profiles folder under Appdata [I tried this multiple times] 4. Deleted the profiles.ini file

After deleting the .ini file Error 2: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." 1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile. After following the Profile Wizard, another error pops up: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved."

I am completely stumped. I hope you can help, Sean
