I use Firefox on a daily basis. It's open 24/7 on my PC and has 7 pinned tabs because I use them all almost everyday - they are mostly e-mail. It's set to auto-update and I think it recently updated to version 80. Ever since Facebook announced the removal of Facebook Classic and rolled out a Messenger update yesterday, I have been getting weird memory-related issues. Since I don't use Firefox exclusively, I just minimize it but it's always running. When I maximize it back to use it, the Facebook pinned tab does something crazy and all my other software start complaining that Windows ran out of memory and sometimes even crashing them though Firefox doesn't and the Facebook page looks garbled like its CSS gets corrupted. I am using the new Facebook - the one that looks like an app - in Dark Mode. The issue only happens when I use Facebook. The issue started happening yesterday.

Important note: this only started happening yesterday. The only thing that changed was the update to Firefox 80 and the roll out of the new Facebook Messenger update. This PC is rarely shut down. Also, when I am using the network (like downloading games from Steam or Epic Games or GOG Galaxy), the issue worsens and Explorer crashes and closes everything in my notification area.

Current workaround: I closed the Facebook pinned tab and everything seems to be working fine.

Specs: Firefox version 80 (no plugins) Windows 10 version 2004 Core-i7 4790K, 32Gb RAM, SSD + 19 Terabytes total HDD NVidia RTX 2070 Super with latest Game Ready drivers

Recently my laptop was fixed by Dell (under warranty) and its motherboard was replaced. Since then tabs crash from time to time, a few time every hour. Sometimes upon opening a new URL sometimes while working. It writes "Gah. Your tab just crashed." Sometimes clicking "Recover" helps, sometimes it crashes again and I need to click it more times. It can happen in many varied sites: Whatsapp web, Google Docs, Gmail, eCommerce website and so on. I updated my Windows update, my Firefox and the graphic driver to the latest version, with no help. Here are a list of a few crashes happened during the last hour or two: bp-9de44d6a-3a90-4783-a7d3-c93180200922 bp-049c5dc5-b7fe-4833-aca2-a33c70200922 bp-d895ec6c-04d8-41c2-877f-85d720200922 bp-08c846e9-dd3a-4281-9d5d-72d8a0200922 bp-d476bbef-f778-4d8e-a764-f9d4f0200922 bp-22dce83a-48bb-45ad-9a0d-06cb40200922 Your help trying to find the problem and fix it is most appreciated!

When I view the blitzortung.org (live lightning map) website I do not hear any sounds associated with the lightning strikes. The normal sound is a very short duration "click". The sound is present when using other browsers but I really hate using Chromium (don't like Google). I am running Debian Linus 10 and I nominally use Firefox ESR. I have downloaded the regular Firefox and the problem occurs with Firefox 80 as well as with ESR 68.12.0.

By opening the PulseAudio mixer while the blitzortung site is opened I have observed that there is a brief flash of the AudioIPC server that coincides with the lightning strike "clicks". My guess is that the AudioIPC server response time is the issue.

Is there any way to get around this issue.

Sound works fine for every other web site.

I'm working on developing something using Codepen and when I refresh either the pen itself or the browser completely the pseudoclass selector for `:hover` does not work. It does on first page load when I open (or open and then close) the browser.

Example: I am trying to style a `
  • ` and it's child. I open the pseudoclass selector and check `:hover`. I have a setting to change the display from `display:none` to `diplay:inline-flex` on a child when the `li` is hovered. It does not do this if I refresh internally (in codepen) or if I refresh the browser itself. It works again once I close Firefox and reopen altogether. I am including two screenshots of the working and not working states. The first (firefox-devtools-bug1.png) shows working, and the second (firefox-devtools-bug2.png) shows the not-working state.

    Urdu words are broken on `Firefox` (`version 80`) and `ubuntu 20.04` on Facebook and main search window (They are alright in wikipedia). Chromium and Chrome are rendering them properly.

    I changed the font settings in firefox and selected the same fonts as they were in Chrome but it didn't solved my issue. I've also installed and used Nafees font package as indicated [here](https://askubuntu.com/a/542683/864585). It corrected the shape of characters but words are still broken. Similar [thread](https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=222388) on `linuxmint` forum provided an answer. It uses same fonts as that of chromium but there's an extra option of `"Text encoding for legacy content"` and uses Arabic in that. I can't find this option in my version of mozilla (I'm attaching picture of option available in my mozilla?


    Can someone please suggest a solution or can help me to find the option `"Text encoding for legacy content"`.

    Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

    I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

    http://localhost:55223

    If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

    If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

    This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?

    I just got a new Mac. I've had Firefox on my old Mac for years.

    During installation on the new machine, I must have made a mistake/been too hasty.

    In the first instance, I dragged the Firefox icon into my Apps folder, but since it didn't appear in my list of applications, I tried to run it from the .dmg package directly.

    Since then, I realised I'm not supposed to do this. So I've deleted everything Firefox from my computer and restarted it several times.

    However, each time I now re-download the Firefox installer and go through the steps to instal it, the same thing happens: it only ever runs from the .dmg package. Whenever I delete the .dmg from my computer Firefox stops running.

    Can someone help? Thank you!

    Evidently when setting up Firefox and importing from Chrome my ID's and passwords, there were some pretty old ones in there. Now with Firefox when I go to a website to login it presents a popup offering a selection of saved ID/PWs for this site. On Chrome, and even Edge, I could just arrow down to an old one and when highlighted hit Delete to clean these out, without having to search for them in a different place to manage that.

    How can I do this the easy way with Firefox - an extension or option somewhere?

And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?
