Hey folks, I've been noticing something peculiar with Firefox that's been bothering me lately. Whenever I try to watch videos on YouTube in resolutions above 1080p, they tend to randomly buffer. It's quite frustrating, especially when I know my internet connection is stable and other browsers don't seem to have this issue. Has anyone else experienced this problem with Firefox? And if so, do you have any tips or solutions to share? Thanks in advance for any insights!

Hi! After a routine update today to Mozilla Firefox 127.0 for Linux Mint, Firefox is asking for my master password before letting me continue. Sync does not appear to be enabled.

I'd really rather it didn't do this, because my password manager is now always open and accessible. Previously, the master password request was only triggered when I came on a site that needed a password.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for any pointers!

My default search engine is Duck Duck Go. I frequently use a VPN.

I am usually in North America and want to search sites in North America. When I run a search by typing a search term in Firefox, I get results beginning in UK, and I see that a blue toggle switch has been set to UK. (See image.)

This started 2-3 weeks ago.

How do I set things so that my searches begin in North America?

I have checked "about:config" preferences and do not see anywhere that UK is specified. I don't see a region preference setting, either.

Thank you.

Versions: Firefox: 127.0 (64-bit) Linux: Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS

Description: After some time, and (under unknown conditions), the input delay will shoot way up. Like 20-30 seconds.

Strangely enough, this only applies to keyboard inputs. I can change my tab with my mouse, I can click on things, no issues there. But any keyboard interaction is hugely delayed.

This does not fix itself until I close my browser and restart it. Closing the browser is always broken here too, if I close the browser with the [X] exit button, I then need to kill the process because it just hangs. It blanks out the contents of each tab like it's preparing to close them, but it just doesn't ever complete the task without a manual kill.

CPU usage and memory usage are relatively low; significantly below my system's limits.

I've already tried this suggested fix, to no avail.

The frequency of this is only about once a week at most, usually once a month, so it's not a huge issue, but I'm just worried about this occurring during a critical meeting or something later. Having this impending restart needed is kind of worrying for critical usage times.

Hello Mozilla Firefox Community,

I hope you are well. I would like to report an accessibility issue with a website in Mozilla Firefox.

When trying to load https://fafsaprogram.com/ with Mozilla Firefox, the website is currently inaccessible. Despite multiple attempts, the site is unable to open, displaying an error message.

I tested the website on many devices and browsers, and it seems to load without any problems. This issue appears to be unique to Mozilla Firefox, though.

As a participant in the Mozilla Firefox community, I'm looking for help to fix this problem. In my opinion, it is imperative to guarantee that every website can be accessed using Mozilla Firefox in order to offer users a flawless online surfing experience.

Would you kindly look into this and offer any advice or ideas to deal with the issue? Your quick consideration of this matter would be much valued.

I appreciate your help and time.

Hi I recently upgraded to win 11 and was so happy that god listened to me and you've added PIP to your browser!!!!!! but I have few problems.... most of them I fixed on my own... I have the latest release and I'm using for now the developer edition. I used the regular too but I thought that the developer edition will be more stable. and its not... I needed to buy a new graphics card GTX 4060 OC 8GB just so I can see all the streams smooth without lagging I needed to upgrade to 24GB (I had 12) memory so Firefox will not crash my computer all the time. your memory consumption problem is ridicules!!! :(((( added a screen shot I have i7 4 cores. i ordered Intel XEON X5675 6 cores it should arrive in a few days just so it will be more stable. 1.from time to time it still crashes (submitted my crash report just now) its closing streams and i don't know why. is it Firefox? is it the stream website? is it my computer?? how can i pinpoint the problem?? 2. I'm seeing multiple live streams usually 6 or more with PIP , I'm organizing the layouts so that I can see them all together. I've sent you a screen shot. for some reason the streams windows keeps centering themself to the borders of the actual screen its driving me nuts. like it has a mind of its own. I keep moving it beyond the border so i can see al the streams but after a minute or two it keeps moving back to the actual screen border. sometimes it doesn't move. its like AI is controlling when it moves and when it stays. is there a way that a computer program!! will listen to my command instead of having a mind of its own and moving my stuff to where he wants too?? is there a fix to it???

Few days ago I started to have issues with Zoom Meeting recordings playback. When I open the video it clocks but doesn't start playing. I never had this issue before. Zoom support cannot replicate this issue. They say everything works for them.

I cleared cache and history, restarted my computer but that didn't do anything for me - video still clocks. Playback works fine on Chrome. Somehow playback on Firefox stopped working for me. I am using the latest version.

Almost daily on Firefox, I get pop-ups like the one shown in the attached image. I have, a few times, bought items on MrTortilla's website and that's fine. What I don't want it pop-ups from them daily when I'm not even on their site. Where do I go in Firefox to say, "I'm not open to pop-ups from this site"? Somehow it must be listed as okay. Please don't tell me to delete all cookies because I like the prefills from most of them. If there's a specific cookie I need to delete, please explain how to get to that. Hopefully, it's just a setting somewhere of sites that are allowed to send pop-ups and I can be guided there to remove mrtortilla.com from that list. Thanks!

Whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube, Firefox would automatically set the playback speed to max, mute the audio, and the video would just end (as if someone moved the seek pointer to the end). Since my YouTube is set to automatically play the next video, I would be presented with a screen showing me what the next video would be playing. At this point, I need to do the following:

  1. quickly click cancel
  2. hit the replay button
  3. set the playback speed to anything but normal
  4. set playback speed to normal
  5. unmute audio
  6. move seek pointer back to beginning

From this point on, videos would play normally and I can jump around and watch different videos. But once I close Firefox and restart it, it would reset to the above issues (max playback speed, mute audio, skip first video).

Anyone else having the same problem? Anyone know what's going on?

On a tangent, on my Windows machine, every now and then, Firefox would flash a white blank screen. I would be surfing and reading stuff and all of a sudden, the screen would just go blank. After a few seconds, it would come back. This only happens on my Windows machine and not my Mac.

Hello,

when I select a Tab and then select from the context menu -Share- I can share the selected tab which means that the URL is copied to the application selected to share the tab with.

When I select from the context menu -Select All Tabs- and then from the context menu -Share- also only one tab can be shared.

Am I wrong in expecting that all the tabs be shared after -Select All Tabs-?
