Recently, I've seen Google searches slow down. At first, I took it as problems at Google. However, when Google started to ask me to verify I am a human more often than not, I decided to investigate the matter.

NetLimiter is showing a HUGE number of connections Firefox is making to the 1e100.net domain. Even with an empty tab open only. Refer to this 1e100.net explainer article to understand what 1e100.net is and does.

Is anyone else seeing this or has something happened to my Firefox 103.0.2 (64bit build)? Bitdefender isn't telling me it has been infected with anything so...

How do I start Firefox in a safe mode? i.e. without extensions enabled. I want to try seeing whether if its one of my addons.

Hi,

I would just like to ask for support regarding an error I recieve when I try to do video call on facebook over your browser. I have attached a copy of the error.

I have restarted both firefox and my laptop as well as ensured the camera and microphone are allowed for facebook but the error still persists.

This does not happen with the other browsers btw.

Hoping for a response on the matter.

Your advise to hold the F5 button and left click the screen refresh is not a fix to the fact that Firefox will not refresh itself most of the time on my Windows 10/64 machine. Chrome and Edge do not have this problem on my machine, and I prefer Firefox so I wish you'd fix the issue instead of offering workarounds.

Thank you,

Nick Langdon, Sacramento

Until recently my browser accessed all the sites I have used for years and now I cannot access them. As an example the message I receive is "You don't have permission to access "http://booking.jetstar.com/au/en/booking/select-flights" on this server".

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.

Downloading with Firefox stops repeatedly and is very annoying.

Sometimes first get the following message that Firefox "..nloads\CZ5EEAZM.exe.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of the server. " (see sattach creenshot)


After pressing repeat too many times, the file will finally be downloaded. Sometimes it doesn't work and Firefox crashes.

Question, who recognizes the problem and more importantly how do I solve it?

The thumbnails on the Firefox page used to take me to the thumbnail home page. Recently this became inconsistent, now the thumbnails try to take me to their home page but the process stops. I have already refreshed Firefox and that did not help. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The thumbnails come up but their functionality is still broken. How do I fix this problem?

Hi I am running Firefox 103 on my lenovo thinkpad T570 running windows 10. Streaming any video (e.g. BBC iPlayer or GCN+ or any source I have tried) Video very choppy, freezes for several seconds while audio continues as normal. this is essentially unusable. Task manager shows firefox running at 70% or more I have tried all the power management settings and that makes no difference. The Nvidia Gforce940 appears not to be used at all. All my drivers are up to date I have tried firefox troubleshoot mode, which makes no difference full screen mode or not makes no difference (its a 4k screen so I wondered if it was doing some kind of upscaling) makes no difference whether I run on external monitor or internal. Also makes no difference whether the laptop is connected to my thunderbolt dock or not. I can run the same content side by side in Chrome. Chrome displays the video smoothly with no glitches at all and consumes around 16% CPU (still no Nvidia GPU utilisation)

This problem does not happen on my other PC, a 5 year old Intel NUC, with i5 cpu, also running win 10 connected to my TV.

If i can't fix this I will have to very reluctantly revert to Chrome for video streaming I havent worked uot how to obtain the troubleshooting info to share but happy to do this if necessary

many thanks John

A mouse click sometimes will not release and any subsequent movement results in a "drag" operation. For several months I had only experienced the problem on the https://radar.weather.gov/ website. I'd click on a map to zoom in, then as the mouse moves the map gets dragged all over the place. There was no work around (the Escape key or additional mouse clicks didn't change the situation). The only way out was to close the page. I raised holy he!! with the Weather Service several times.

Now, a second instance is occurring, this time in my Instagram account. In IG's interface, after uploading a photo and clicking to center the image, the click doesn't release and the pic moves all over the place. Again, Esc key or additional clicks don't cancel the situation. I can only upload to IG by using Msft Edge.

I am using an older Intuos3 Wacom tablet and mouse. But as I said, the problem only exists in the Firefox browser and no other apps, not Edge and certainly not in any of my photo apps.

I noticed a similar but not exact situation in the on Bugzilla but that issue was several years old.

Any advice? TY. FrankM

Have to be honest… Firefox was a browser I always relied on, however, since I’ve sent it up to my other browsers I’ve had nothing but issues with crashing on my site and losing my webpages. I need to know what the fix is to this because I will download other browsers instead if using Firefox from this point forward. Please advise what the solution is. Christopher
