Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit) doesn't play YouTube videso in Private Window. The same videso play in s statdrad new window. Try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fiVciCs8zU which ironically won't play in private! Every time you press the play button you get about half a second of play before pausing. In standard mode it plays just fine.

Whenever I open Firefox, the window will appear shortly after, but it will take around a minute for websites to load.

  • This applies to both tabs from older sessions and opening new tabs.
  • It doesn't matter whether I've just booted up, or if I've been running for half an hour.
  • I've tried disabling all extensions, but that hasn't fixed anything.
  • This doesn't happen when running Firefox on Windows 10
  • I've tried both the system package and mozilla.org version

I am running Linux Mint 21.1 Cinnamon on my Gaming Laptop. Specs shouldn't be an issue. Am happy to share any system info necessary. ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!

Firefox (and also Thunderbird) crash on trying to load Yahoo mail login page

A friend (who knows even less about technology than me) has an old Dell Inspiron 1501 which has been running Linux Mint 18 Xfce, which is now unsupported. I'm beginning to regret it but just to keep it going for a couple of years I offered to update to Mint 20 Xfce, which is the last version listing 1 Gb as the minimum Ram (everything later or other version are 2 Gb or more), which is the most that system can use. Once the wifi was eventually working (old b43 broadcom driver) most things went fine (except Team Viewer, which works on another Mint 20 Xfce system, but that's not a question for here). However, she uses Yahoo mail, and for some reason just attempting to load the login page (login.yahoo.com) causes Firefox to crash (I mentioned Thunderbird in the title as I attempted to access Yahoo Mail with it, but because it needs to access the Yahoo Mail page (as I think this is now based on App codes rather than passwords), and doing that crashed Thunderbird also). I'm pretty sure I have methodically gone through all the troubleshooting steps on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clear cookies & cache by deleting history; clear startup cache; refresh; reinstall; new profile). Firefox doesn't crash in Troubleshoot mode, despite the fact is seems to still use hardware acceleration, even though I thought it would disable that. Hence, I'm at the end of what I know to try (and that's just from following the guide, I am not an expert) and would be grateful for any help anyone can offer. I attach an image that lists all the submitted crash reports, as they will refer to slightly different conditions as I tried all the options mentioned above. I'm using my own PC to submit this (so any hardware & system data submitted by this web-form won't be relevant), not the Inspiron 1501 that has the issue. I can open the Yahoo mail page on this machine (same version of Firefox) and also on the Inspiron 1501 using Chrome (but there was a different reason relating to security why we couldn't log in via that). Would really like to get Firefox (and Thunderbird) working on the laptop, if possible.

firefox 109 is constantly crashing, sometimes costing meexpenses. I have submitted over 50 crashes in the past month, aand have heard nor seen any response from firefox.

How can I rectify this without reinstalling firefox, which by the way was more trouble than it was worth, as it didn't fix the crashes , but did manage to clear my bookmark menus, which was a complete pain in the arse. any help will be greatly received - if it works

Hi

I only have this problem on https://seb.se/ and it worked on my old computer with windows 10, it also works with Edge.

It seems Firefox does not recognize links on that site. Nothing can be clicked and the pointer does not change when hovering a link.

Firefox always uses excessive GPU memory when I watch video and livestream. about:memory shows that the explict GPU memory allocation is only about 200 MB but in the task manager the GPU memory usage is 1GB, and the latter doesn't decrease even if I close the tab. I suspect that this is a memory leak. I searched for Bugzilla and found a similar issue that has been existing for years: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1386177

I tried the RPM and Flatpak Firefox, both in the newest version give me crashes when Loading Youtube, Invidious, Stud.IP, Nextcloud and more "bigger" sites.

It seems like an OOM error, but I have way enough RAM, 4GB/12GB used.

I tried the Flatpak and the RPM Version.

I tried troubleshooting mode.

I used the Arkenfox user.js on both installs.

I wondered several times why firefox recovers old tabs when it chrashed. now i see that in my profile folder/sessionstore-backups the file recovery.jsonlz4 is some days old (while i was using firefox in the meantime very often) and does not update frequently as requested by about:config browser.sessionstore.interval = 15000 (15s). - this folder or the files are not locked. i can delete/rename them, they are not re-created - there is no file sessionstore.* in the main folder of firefox profile while running firefox - i am using 102.4.0esr (32-Bit) on a company PC (could there be any restrictions?) - the file previous.jsonlz4 seems to be created correctly when firefox is closed normal (which is not my usecase, i want to restore up to date tabs after crashes) - i am not using a private window

do you have any idea?

I have that issue also it shows up anytime I try PNC.com or my health care insurance. The workaround is using Firefox's private window. I removed my saved login and dumped my data, cookies, site data, and cache but that didn't help. That has been a pain restoring other sites I had saved, but that's another story.

Ever since Firefox updated today I've been unable to use the browser. It takes at least 5 minutes or more minutes to load, I can't manually log into any websites until the speeddial finally loads, and the speeddial addon refuses to come up for at least 5 minutes, I can't log into Dropbox even with the speeddial up and running because the capcha won't popup...and on and on.

What in the world has been done to it? I'm using another browser just to contact support.

I have tried disable extensions one by one but it does not seem to affect the problem. Or at least there isn't a clear pattern that can help isolate the problem.

How can I fix this? Can someone help me read these reports better?
