Ever since I updated, typing has become incredibly challenging... There's big delays in the words showing up, letters come out in the wrong places, & it doesn't improve even when I clear cache, clear memory, & refresh pages. I don't know what else to do. Should I delete and re-install Firefox, or replace this with the previous version?

How do you CHANGE the location (away from Drive C) where Firefox stores temporary files (reprise)?

I'm trying to find a way to change where Firefox 93 stores my temporary internet files away from C Drive to a different drive to reduce lag. I found an article on how to do it using the about:config utility, but I can't do what that article describes — right-clicking in the about:config browser does not give me the option to create a new string; there is no "new" option.

How do I change this in Firefox 93?

Firefox dropdown menus and toolbar popups inconsistently work

Both drop-down menus (e.g., the drop-down for "Which topic best describes your question?") and popup menus for add-ons in the bookmark bars work inconsistently or not at all. The right-click menu and the 3-bar menu often fail to work on the first few tries, but eventually open. (And in the case of the 3-bar menu, it often opens without certain options, like "Settings," "More tools," and "Help," though these usually appear after waiting a few seconds.) Other menus, like drop-down menus on website or several pop-ups for addons, don't work at all, no matter how many times I try.

The issue isn't solved by starting in Troubleshooting mode (insofar as they can be reproduced -- some things, like the add-on popups, can't be since the add-ons are disabled) or by clearing the cache.

I'm running Firefox Nightly 95.0a1 (2021-10-06) (64-bit) on Arch Linux, though the same issue seems to affect Firefox 93.0.

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

As the title says and I've tried the following:

- Restarting my laptop - Clearing the cache and cookies - Disabling hardware acceleration - Disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection - Running in Troubleshoot mode - Refreshing FF - Reinstalling FF (Currently running 93.0, 64bit)

Youtube buffers the video but won't actually play it. The same goes for Reddit.

I'm at a loss for what else to try.

I have a Coldfusion application running on Windows 10. I just updated Firefox and when I launch the printer function from with the app, the Print Preview window flashes then closes. The behavior is the same with tab_modal true or false.

Print preview is loading from Chrome and was working with Firefox for years up until the recent browser updates.

I'm using 93.0

Got the "new & improved" version 93, and it doesn't seem so improved. I can barely write this, as it keeps stopping and starting, and acts like we're underwater! It's using about 15GBs of RAM, and while I still have plenty on-hand, it's barely functioning! Come one, what's going on, will this browser ever just work?

I did the Firefox Refresh, it didn't help.

When I reach an online form, even a simple logon the autofill starts immediately, but it won't fill in anything for 30 seconds to a minute. Most of the time it will fill only the first part of the form, then another halt even though it shows it knows what the next field fill-in would be.

Then sometimes (I don't know what does it) I catch a break and mercifully the autofill releases the open form field it was hung on so I can type it on the old fashioned way, but until it does that I'm helpless as it doesn't let me stop the already started automation when the online form presented.

Any suggestions? It wasn't always this way. Thanks, Dean

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

When streaming video or sound from any website i.e. YouTube, Netflix etc. my audio changes level automatically. I will start a video, the audio level will be set and when I pause and resume playing, especially multiple times in a row, the audio level will increase by itself every time i resume playing however not by increasing either the YouTube/streaming site's volume setting nor my Windows volume slider. If an episode on Netflix finishes and the next episode starts automatically, the volume will be much lower once playback resumes but again, no volume settings/sliders have changed. If I pause and play again, the volume goes up and if i pause and play multiple times it will gradually go back to the original level. I have removed application control of volume in Windows from Firefox and have tried searching for this issue but have yet to find a solution. Chrome does not have this issues on my same device. On rare occasions, the audio will automatically boost all the way up to maximum level and become distorted regardless of which audio device I'm using i.e. wireless headphones, external sound card, any other audio device. I then need to pause and un-pause a few times before it goes back to normal Please help!

I saw people defending this saying that "uuuh, mozilla takes advantage of-" BS! It doesn't take advantage of nothing, it only wastes your ram and your time.

I have a VPN for work, some internal sites are inaccessible without this VPN. When I try to access them with the VPN turned off I legitimately get a 403. However, when I turn on the VPN firefox keeps showing 403 while other browsers work fine. This also works the other way around. When I turn off the VPN and try to go to one of the internal sites I don't get a 403 (as I should), instead firefox gets stuck at the page loading stage and nothing happens. There seems to be some kind of caching or optimization going on, but it's terribly interfering. Deleting cookies, caches, etc doesn't help at all. The only thing that helps in this situation is restarting firefox.

Hi there Firefox team!

I'm experiencing a problem with Facebook's in-bedded messenger when I'm trying to send a voice clip to a friend. It doesn't allow the action and gives me the following error: You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone

The problem is that I did, both in browser and on-site, and I can make audio calls and video calls with microphone working on the messenger just fine. Only sending the voice clip doesn't work. I don't know why and whether the issue is with Firefox or with Facebook's code for Firefox, but the issue definitely is annoying.

I've also changed Firefox privacy controls from Strict to Standard, and that didn't help either.

If anyone knows what to do, please help. I love using Firefox, and it's been my default browser for like, decades, and I don't intend to leave it because of this one issue... it's just frustrating. And I've seen some people experiencing the same issue on the web.

I don't know. May the Lord bless you! :D

Starting a few months ago, when I click on a link in a web page that would cause a PDF to be displayed, I get the dialog box asking me where I want to save the file. When I go into settings and change the way Firefox deals with PDF files, having it use Adobe Acrobat DC instead, the problem will be temporarily solved, but it returns shortly. (The particular setting which I have to continually reset is under the Settings/Applications and involves "content type" "Portable Document Format (PDF)(application/pdf)"

How can I make it so that I don't have to continually instruct Firefox to open rather than save PDF files?

Hi, since 93.0 stuff went worse regarding speed and additionally, listening to short 30 sec tracks in advance on regular amazon pages fails at all. Tried the tracks-thing with the latest Edge: et voila -> no prob at all.

I am on Win10pro, 21H1. These issues started with 93.0. No, I have not played around with any about:config settings after updating it. It's quite annoying and my overall experience starts to suck. Sorry but if stuff goes that bad out of the blue... What have you people done/changed?
