I am developing a website, frontend using react, redux, typescript. The same page that is taking let's say x seconds to load on Chrome, Edge etc., is taking 4x-5x to load on Firefox. How should I fix this, any help would be appreciated. From what I understand "Layout Reflow" is what is taking the most amount of time.

I am trying to understand how password less authentication with a FIDO2 security token works in Firefox over BLE transport.

Firefox uses authenticator-rs as Webauthn library which only supports USB-HID transport.

I am able to use a BLE security token to login to my google account however. How does that work if Firefox does not support that transport protocol?

Any help or direction to documentation on this topic is appreciated. So far I was not able to find an explanation for this online.

Ive been with Firefox since 0.4 20+years and am thinking of binning this browser. The Firefox updates wipe your bookmarks ,your page set up with the 4 rows and your preferred sites they then push in the boxes last visited or recommenced stories i had to reinstall and older version,get bookmarks from a different drive i have to get back to where i was.

  I have turned off updates but am continually bombarded with download latest version,Firefox used to be great ,you got what you want,no adds,no pushing stuff its starting to feel like google chrome.
  So before i bin it,is there any way you can save ALL your setting as you like them and reinstall them with your preferences as was?     If not i will give Duck duck go, a go as my new browser.

Background tabs triggering master password popups

I have a lot of tabs open, and I don't know which are responsible for the popups. Previously, I'd get 2-3 unexpected popups per day (that were not triggered by navigation in visible tabs), but since yesterday, every ~10min I'm getting 2 popups right after each other.

How do I find out what tab is triggering them?

Besides the annoyance, I find it worrying that firefox apparently "intends" to input login details into background tabs - if I had entered my master password previously, I wouldn't even notice that the password store had been accessed.

It would be really nice if the master password popup had a button to view the triggering tab (and perhaps highlight the fields that would have been filled after unlocking), but until that happens, I really need some way to locate the problematic tab(s)...

Ever since last update to Firefox, there are now intermittent drop outs in Audio, whether it's in media player(s) , youtube videos, or audio edited softwares.

And this ONLY happens when Firefox is open.

Media playback choppy + browser laggy on a Macbook Pro with M3 chip

I installed Firefox on a Macbook Pro with Apple Silicon, M3. The installation was from the Firefox site, I downloaded the dmg and then dragged into Applications.

I find that playback of media stutters, and is choppy--not sure of a better way to explain it. E.g., YouTube videos and the Bandcamp player have "stuttered sound". Opening another site in another tab can make this effect worse. Likewise, trying to run Google Meet in a browser window causes basically everything on the computer to become very slow.

This still happens even if I go to "about:profiles" and then "restart with add-ons disabled".

But if I switch to another browser, Safari or Chrome, then I don't have the issue. e.g. I can play YouTube in the background fine even when running some compute intensive task.

I have also tried turning on/off "performance settings" and the "use hardware acceleration" checkbox underneath it -- neither of those seem to have any effect.

Activity Monitor showed that at most Firefox was using ~4 GB of memory of a total 48 GB, and the memory pressure indicator seems to be quite low.

I have run Firefox on other systems (e.g. System76, older Macbook Pro) with multiple windows open each having 20-30 tabs and never had an issue like this.

It really seems like it has something to do with how Firefox is interacting with the M3? Happy to learn I'm wrong. And happy to provide more details about the hardware or my settings if it would help.

When I try to access an http:// site, the link is upgraded to https:// regardless of this setting.

This broke after a recent update to the browser. I cannot specifically say which upgrade, but it worked a month ago, now it doesn't anymore.

It may be worth noting that this broke in Brave (based on Chromium) at the same time.

I'm using openSUSE Tumbleweed and KDE Plasma. Ever since I updated to Plasma 6.1, Firefox crashes constantly when using Wayland. I'm not having this problem if I'm using X11. Crash reports are sent after every crash so I'm sure someone can reference these. When starting Firefox from a console, I got this message after a crash: "[GFX1-]: Wayland protocol error: wp_linux_drm_syncobj_surface_v1#67: error 5: explicit sync is used, but no release point is set"

Will this get fixed with the next Firefox update? Currently using 127.0.
