Whenever I try to play videos on Firefox, the elements don't load right and no video will begin. On Youtube, this is usually either a blank page with no video element, or I get an error stating that the video can't be played. On Twitch, I get the streamer's default 'not streaming' message, even if they are live, and VODs don't work. I have several extensions to protect privacy and block ads, but even if they are all turned off I still have this problem. I've also tried turning my VPN off and on, and setting it to various different locations. Nothing works. I can watch videos on another browser without issue. My extensions: Facebook Container Privacy Badger Flash Block Plus SponsorBlock Bypass Paywalls Outline AdNauseum

I have a 1 Gbps line from Comcast. I have a new HP desktop PC, 32 GB Ram. Speed tests from several test sites confirm good line speed. When I sign in to my email provider using Firefox, the circle on the screen goes round and round for up to 20 seconds. Not so with MS Edge. When I select an image to view using Firefox, I can watch the screen being painted. Not so with MS Edge. I have had slow responses from several other websites. Comcast has come out to my house twice to verify line speed. No problems found. Firefox appears to be the bottleneck at this point. Please help.

Thanks..........Bob

Running Windows 10 and Firefox 102.9.0esr 64-bit. I seem to have affected the print facility so that the contents of a frame within a webpage do not print. The frame contents do show on the preview screen but then disappear when the Print button is pressed and they are not printed. The rest of the webpage is printed OK. Typically this happens to the 'Sellers Description' on an Ebay item. I have upgraded to Firefox 115.7.0esr but this has not fixed the problem. The print works fine on another machine running Windows 10 and Firefox 91.6.0esr 64-bit. Is there a way to get the full print back? Regards, LRB

Glitch in the display of Firefox windows, maybe related to Mac OSX "spaces" and "desktops" fuctionality

Using Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 and Firefox 75.15.0 esr

I have a number of desktops defined in "spaces" and each app goes into one. Something odd has happened with Firefox.

When I select a different Window from the Window dropdown, or from the Dock, sometimes there is a "sliding sideways" effect.

And if I go into Firefox by going to the Dock and tapping its icon - it goes to one window; BUT if go to the Dock and tap again, it changes to another window. I think, always the same two.

So its sort of behaving like "spaces" does, but when I view all the "desktops" in the selection view at the top of the screen, I only see one containing Firefox windows.

Its really annoying when the window changes like that, and I don't know how to get them into a single grouping. I have quit & reopened many times, but it persists.

If I knew which of the Firefox Windows were in each of these glitchy "pseudo-groups" then I might quit all of one group, and then re-open them. Not sure if there are just two such pseudo-groups, or more.

when I click on links to take me to website through my email in Thunderbird that I will get an error message that reads "we could not verify the certificate, reason=wronghost"

Do you get the error in Thunderbird or in the browser? What browser?

   But, if I copy link and copy into browser it works fine. 

Is that the same browser as the one which opens when you click the link in Thunderbird (a.k.a. your default browser)?

In answer to these questions: I use Chrome or Duck Duck Go. Duck Duck Go is my default browser. If I copy and paste link from email in browser it opens, but if I click on link in email I get the error message above. Also when you reply the email is a do not reply email so I can't reply back. Please include a good email so I can answer any questions you may have. Thank you

I have a very good PC (5800X3D, 7900XT, 32GB DDR4 3600), but Firefox (either the normal, canary and nightly version) can't play smoothly any 4K video (like the Borderlands trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU_NKNZljoQ ). 1440 and lower resolutions are fine, as are 4K videos on Chrome and Edge. FWIW, my CPU during 4K playback is barely used (1-2%), and my GPU's video codec (VCE) is used by around a third. Disabling HW accel makes things better, as it still stutters but it's (barely) passable. I already tried creating a new profile, but still it's the same.

Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me figure out why Firefox continues to crash on my M-series Mac, when visiting certain websites. I am getting an error, no blob image template [ EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS ], on each crash. I've looked this error up, to little avail. Can someone please help diagnose some of these?

The last several weeks, almost every time I close Firefox, I get the Crash report dialog box. I have cleared cache and cookies. I also cleared the offline website data and deleted the parent.lock file. These may work for a bit, but eventually the same day. So far today, it has happened 5 times. I do submit the report(s). It's not really a hassle, just having to click a button, but it just drives me crazy that it is being generated even though Firefox did not crash and I am just closing it after I am done. Anyone else encounter this? Any suggestions? Thanks

I noticed my laptop was being slow, so I looked at the memory usage. Firefox was using a whopping 5GB of memory on Windows 11. I then looked at about:process and it reported that extensions were using 4GB. I disabled each of my extensions and it still said it was using 4GB of memory. I then uninstalled two of them and re-enabled some extensions and it dropped to 781MB. This is still to much in my opinion, and I want to know how to figure out which extension is being so wasteful. Even a technique on how to figure it out would be appreciated.

For some reason I can no longer upload any photos or videos to Facebook, via messenger or direct to a page / groups. I used to be able to do this previously as I was a user of the marketplace. My system is a modern build gaming PC running Windows 11 and using proprietrry antivirus software. I have tried mozilla troubleshooting mode, resetting firefox, removing addons, removing or halting any add block software and much more. I am at the end of my tether and will consider leaving the browser after over a decade as it is causing me issues with the groups I frequent as I cannot find a work around. It also replicates the same when I am on my android device and operating via the browers on their which is of course synced to the PC.

Many thanks and I look forward to a response that may help.

On bootup firefox opens a single window which says the following:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

The restore function succeeds in restoring 6 windows from the prior session, but this notice keeps appearing on every bootup.

Here are a few relevant details from about: config

  • browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes (is set to 1)
  • browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash (is set to true)
  • No 3rd party third party cleaning software
  • Two extensions, tab stash and tree tabs
  • There are no entries in about:crash for this event

Have been using Firefox from 2004 with 5-10 open windows which appear on bootup as they existed from the prior session. This is the first occurance of this error. Appreciate your support. Here are a few system details:

1.) 28gb ram 2.) Linux ~ LMDE 5 (Elsie) 3.) Firefox ESR 115.8 (oesr) 64 bit.

Since the new update for some reason, videos on some websites are no longer loading as they used to. The big sites like YouTube and Netflix are fine though others are giving error codes.

(Error Code: 102630) is a common one, even after going through the guides online to get it working nothing works.

The other thing I've noticed is: Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG This also comes up on some web players. Same again, nothing works trying to fix it.

Something changed during update 122.0.1 ?? Any Help or Ideas would be great. :)
