Hello there to anyone who can help me with this problem that I'm having right now. Yesterday while watching and going through the videos on youtube, while watching a video, it suddenly started to lag and not move as smoothly much as before when I have on a higher quality like in 1080p 60fps or 720p60fps.

This has happen to me a couple times before when I couldn't find a way to fix it like when my my laptop was acting stupid and was resetting itself and showing a blue screen when it happen and had someone help me take it to the store and have it fixed and the reset my laptop or something and had to go redownload Firefox and I think the problem stopped working.


Yesterday and today I tried searching and looking up how to fix this and find answers that tell me to go to the about:config and change somethings to false or true whatever and it still has this problem. I hope changing it to whatever doesn't mess it up anything even more.

I thought I had to go update Windows or something since recently a couple of times the youtube videos get stuttery and not move as smoothly at times. I can't remember much this one but I either just close Firefox to hopefully that it goes back to normal or I have to update Windows to restart my laptop and it works and it goes back to normal.

But this time when I did all that and I try to update Windows from my laptop it was doing what it does updating installing or downloading yesterday. The problem is still there and the videos on youtube are still stuttering. And I try to see if there were more things to update there was nothing there and says its up to date.

I linked a video that has a 60fps option on a another browser Microsoft Edge to see if it works from there and video when putting it on 60fps works fine there. So this must be a Firefox problem or something.

So if anyone can help me with this problem. Please tell if there's anything else I can do to get these videos on youtube to work on Firefox in 60fps and hopefully can try to easily fix this and hope its nothing complicated to do. Or if there is a bug or something that's making these videos stuttering and everything please try to fix this problem that's going with me right now. Cause i don't want to have to deal with problem I had before again forever and/or if its permanent.

Hopefully maybe the next update for Firefox might fix this problem I have from these youtube videos, but I don't know. Whenever an update for Firefox happens sometimes, the videos on youtube start to stutter and not move as smoothly with putting it on 60fps and have this problem again.

Thank you if anyone has the time to look at this and hopefully someone can get me the answer to finally fix these videos that are freezing stuttering and stuff there.

Firefox recently changed my primary language on ALL WEBSITES from English to French. I've tried to reset default language to English using Options>Language but it doesn't make the change. I've refreshed Firefox. I've removed both French and English as primary language and then chosen English again. Nothing works. Thanks for assistance.

This command doesn't work, and I've seen others with the same issue and no one ever gave a response on how to fix it.

I'm assuming the same thing will happen here, but I just started using Fire Fox and really hope someone can give some resolve.

I tried running with no extensions too, it still didn't work.

Microsoft Edge Control + Shift + N works

Chrome Shift + N works

I tried this solution "Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is is causing the problem. " It didn't work.

Please could someone help me. Firefox has been my favorite go to browser, but now I am forced to look for alternatives.

I'd like to know why my previous question on this matter was deleted.

How do I change the font and line spacing characteristics?

Specifically, my tabs are now 4 pixels too high and the menu font spacing is also 4 pixels too high.

This has made the dropdowns for my bookmarks bigger than my screen (for example) and I find that I'm needing to move the mouse excessively from the extra space introduced when I right click on a page for menu options there as well.

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Recently I’ve been receiving a 522 timeout error in Firefox attempting to reach URL www.cocoontech.com. The 522 is returned from Cloudflare’s reverse proxy servers (see uploaded image). However, I can successfully reach that URL using Chrome and MS Edge browsers. Only Firefox receives the 522 error. I can access numerous other websites with Firefox, so it seems to be isolated to just www.cocoontech.com. I’ve looked at numerous settings in Firefox, but have not seen anything that seems relevant to this issue.

Any ideas where to look to resolve this issue?

When I tap the middle mouse wheel to enable auto-scrolling (with no additional inputs like clicking, scrolling, or keyboard inputs), on release of the middle mouse wheel, auto-scroll disappears. I can only use auto-scroll while holding down the middle mouse wheel.

I've reached out to other's and this seems to not be the intended/default behavior. I've confirmed middle-mouse wheel scroll (where it's a tap / toggle) works on Chrome as well as other applications like Spotify.

I would like to have it as a toggle. What can I do?

Each morning, when I first cold boot my computer, the moment I open my Firefox browser, I receive numerous (10+) identical error messages from Bitdefender:

Suspicious connection blocked: Feature: Online Threat Prevention

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to content-signature-2.cdn.mozilla.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.

Question: Is this ACTUALLY coming from Firefox? If so, please match your security certificates! If that's impossible due to a technical issue, then please email me your confirmation so that I can add an exception to Bitdefender.

Question: If it's not coming from Firefox, please email me, letting me know what additional system information you require so that we can get to the bottom of who/what is masquerading as Firefox while attempting to establish an unauthorized Internet connection from my computer.

HP Envy laptop, Windows 10 OS, latest update.

This has been occurring for several months.

Thank you for your time.

Firefox crashes and restarts my computer all the time.

What happens: Suddenly the screen just goes black and my PC boots up again. Like the power was cut for a second.

When does it happen: It started in the last quarter of last year. It happens randomly when firefox is open and multiple times a day! It does not matter whether there is heavy load on the system or just few pages are open and I'm not even doing anything. I think it has happened only once while gaming (but the firefox was open that time). And generally with heavy workloads (gaming/solidworks) the PC runs just fine. Since it started I have done two clean installs of Win 10, "refreshed" the firefox, tried disabling all extensions, disabled hardware acceleration. The crash still happens.

The crash: The windows event has two errors after reboot: Event ID 6008 and 41. The crash happens so suddenly, there are no crash logs when windows boots up. It seemed so odd that I started to suspect my PSU is broken. BUT THEN I used edge browser and my computer didn't crash for a WEEK.

I miss using firefox to sync my stuff between mac, android and windows without having to log into big corporation account. But since starting to use firefox again, the crashes are back just as before.

Any Ideas how to fix this?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 64-bit with version 107.0 on Windows 10 21H2. I connect very often to HTTPS websites without a valid certificate. Often with certificates issued by themselves. Before it was always enough to say "I trust this website" once. Now the question comes again and again, whenever I connect. What could be the cause of this?

I keep getting a message that my browser is not updated. I am using Firefox 95 on Windows 10. Both should be compatible. Two of the websites are Yahoo mail and Chase (bank). I have reset the default user agent as the article states (nothing needed to be changed): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-reset-default-user-agent-firefox.

I also disabled all add-ons, but that did not help. Not sure what to do from here. This just recently started (maybe 2-3 months ago).

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.
