Firefox "suspends" UI/DOM updates when its window is in the background or loses focus?

I'm working to support a user who uses Firefox 79 on macOS 10.15.

Throughout the day, this user has to run a long-running Python script that uses the selenium module and geckodriver to have Firefox automatically interact with some ancient web based accounting software.

This approach is out of my control, I did not implement it, and being a very small company, there's no budget to change it or buy new hardware. It is what it is.

We also can't run in any sort of a headless mode, as the user must sometimes manually interact with this ancient accounting web site in rare cases.

The script itself works fine, as long as Firefox's window retains focus or stays in the foreground the whole time. It can run successfully for days like this.

The problem happens when Firefox ends up becoming a background window while the Selenium script is still running.

This happens often, as the user usually also has other stuff that needs to be done on this computer.

When in the background, Firefox and the Selenium script will work fine for some time. But then it's like Firefox suspends itself.

The Selenium script can still communicate with Firefox, but it's like Firefox has stopped updating the UI or the DOM for some reason.

This can cause the Selenium script to fail, as it can't find elements that it expects to be present in the DOM.

If the Firefox window is brought to the foreground again, it shows an outdated page rendering and the cursor is a "+" cross shape. Clicking within the Firefox window, for example, seems to refresh the UI, and it'll show the correct, current page after a few seconds.

Does Firefox do something to suspend tabs or windows that no longer have focus or are no longer in the foreground?

If it does, is there some way to easily disable this?

I can understand something like that being useful to save energy on laptops, for example, but in our case it's destroying Firefox's usability for this long-running Selenium job.

Many thanks!

I clicked on the shield to turn off "enhanced protection". When I clicked on shield to turn the protection back on the window has no toggle switch to turn it back on. I went thru the help area and all I found was: "Follow the same process to turn Enhanced Tracking Protection back on." How do I turn it back on for individual sites?

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

I have a private message board and I am having problems with the messages not marking as read. Sometimes they mark and sometimes they don't. If they do not mark I refresh the page and they show as marked. I thought it might be just one computer but all three are doing the same thing. I started with the 77 version of Firefox. I replaced my router because of other problems. I took one of my laptops completely removed Firefox by deleting everything mozilla in appdata and sub directories. I went into the registry and deleted everything mozilla. I then reinstalled Firefox, left it as a fresh install. Booted my computer in safe mode with only network. I then launched Firefox and it is still doing the same thing not marking the messages as read by changing color all the time. Like I said sometimes it does mark them and sometimes it doesn't. I am running the latest version of Firefox. Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer no problem marking as read. Does anyone have any more suggestions to try.

Ever since I started using Firefox I've found that if I Google a subject and then try to open a resulting listesd website which is marked as an "Ad", it won't open and I get a "Server Not Found" message. I like Firefox a lot but this is plain irritating!

On the Help pages I found a suggestion about changing the proxy setting to "No Proxy" (I'm just an individual at home, running through a standard BT hub), but that doesn't seem to have made any difference.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

Is there any way to get the menu bar to have a unified appearance? Solid background mixed with a transparent one is not very nice looking. It would look much better if the solid background were also transparent. Anyone have a .css or other solution?

I run Firefox on a Macintosh. I have Notifications always active in my Macintosh menu bar (upper right corner). Suddenly without warning, and without me doing anything, I got two notifications both saying: "Firefox is downloading from OneDrive". No indication of what was being downloaded, to where, or why, or why now. In fact at the time, I was working in Excel not Firefox (although Firefox was up, just hidden). OneDrive was up also, but in the background doing its usual syncing stuff. I checked Tools --> Downloads. I got the message: "There are no downloads." What the hey? Considering Firefox is a Mozilla product, and One Drive is a Microsoft product, I'm not sure how they can even talk to each other. Should I be concerned? Is this a virus? How can I find out what was downloaded, where it went, and why did this happen? Hope You Can Help.
