Hello. I need help with: `DOMException: The quota has been exceeded.` I'm trying to use IndexedDB. However, the code is requesting persistent storage: `await window.navigator.storage.persist();` (and this is returning true) This website is only storing about 8MB of data and I have a different website storing 200MB of data (userscript) The storage medium still has 140GB available. What quota did I exceed? If this is the wrong place, please direct me to the right place

Hi all,

I've been having problems with firefox lagging constantly. General browsing around feels laggy - and opening new tabs pretty much causes my computer to freeze for a few seconds. During this time firefox causes the CPU to spike to 100% usage.

I've been using firefox for years on this computer with no issues. Hardware is pretty good (i7 5820k, 64GB of ram and an SSD).

So far I have tried:

  • Running in safe mode
  • Using a different profile
  • Downgrading to an older firefox
  • Changing allowed CPU cores from 8, to 4
  • Updated graphic card drivers to latest version

None of these work, and I'm getting a bit tired of the constant slow downs. Chrome works flawlessly, as does all my other software...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Formerly there used to be a Firefox icon in the top left of the Firefox window (left of the menu bar; I'm not sure if it was actually part of the menu bar or not). This icon no longer appears. I found it useful because I use several browsers, and it's handy sometimes to be sure which one I'm in! Also to tell the difference between regular Firefox and DeveloperEdition (Red and Blue icons respectively). Is there any way I can get this icon to display in current versions of Firefox? Please note I'm NOT asking how to display the menu bar. I can do that.

I opened Google Calendar as a web app in Firefox by opening it in my Firefox Developer Edition browser and clicking the "page options" button (three dots side by side in the address bar).

In Google Calendar, I clicked on an event in my schedule that had a link attached. When I clicked the link, nothing happened and I wasn't redirected.

The specific link isn't the problem- all of my Google Calendar event links open when I click on them in the regular Firefox browser, and they also work when I click on them in the Microsoft Edge web app mode. As far as I can tell, only my Google Calendar event links have this issue, and only in Firefox Web App mode.

I tried restarting my browser with add-ons disabled and the problem still occurred. Appreciate any help.

I just started having this problem a few days ago prior to the latest FF update. I'll be browsing around and on some websites, all the sudden when I click on a navigation link, I get this Access Denied error. I've tried disabling all add-ons, totally shutting down my VPN, double checked my firewall settings, cleaned out my cookies and internet cache and even updated FF to the current version.I know these few websites (so far) are active, so after doing more researching, I've come here to see if anybody else has any ideas. I would appreciate it

This can be see on google maps while moving around the map.

Tried on Microsoft edge and didn't happen

Is there an ETA to fix this?

My Firefox version is 83.0b2 (64-bit).

And I'm on the latest drivers for my graphics card.

Hi,

When I go to Facebook on Mozilla and try to use the messenger app to run a video call (using microsoft surface running windows 10), the default camera is my rear facing camera. There is no toggle i can see to switch it to the front camera. I cannot do so in window settings and have spoken with Microsoft support which tells me to call mozilla support. I cannot do it in any of the facebook settings either. I cannot do it with camera settings in mozilla either. I can use the front camera successfully from chrome! I can from Edge! I can from Zoom. I like mozilla and want to keep using it but if I can't resolve this I will likely just switch to chrome permanently. Please let me know how to select the default camera in mozilla. Thank you.

I had accidentally refreshed my Firefox, and after adding back all my old data, I found that the pocket stories were missing form my new tab. I manged to fix this issue, but when I go into new tab settings to make it show more than 3 stories, there are no options for them. It just gives me options for search, top sites, highlights, and snippets. How do I get these settings back?

10/20/20

I clicked on the update button last night - running 81.0, and the update was for 81.0.2. When I went to open the browser all that I got was a line at the top - FF would not open. I backed up the profile, and did a clean install. When I finally got the backed up profile installed, it opened properly once and everything was there. When I opened it again, no book marks, and none of the buttons worked. FF didn't close properly, and I had to use Task Manager to shut down.

I ended up downloading the beta version, and it's worked just fine. The original profile works, so all bookmarks are there.

I see that FF released 82.0 this morning. Is it safe to try to install it, or is the beta version that I installed last night really 82, just hours before it was officially released?

Just updated to 82.0 and all of a sudden I am unable to print legal size. All settings, including both Windows and Firefox shows legal paper size. Firefox prints in letter size only. All other apps/programs print in legal size. Any thoughts on this. Only started this morning after the update. Checked on another computer with Firefox prior to update and it prints legal, then updated that computer's Firefox to 82.0 on windows 10 pro and same issue. Thank you
