With Firefox 81 on Mac, the browser window only displays one-fourth of the screen when running a Flash-based web application. This did not happen with previous versions of Firefox.

When reverting back to the Extended Support Version of Firefox, this issue is not happening:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/enterprise/#download

So there is a workaround but we're supporting hundreds of clients that are using Firefox 81 on a Mac, so we need to figure out a solution without needing a workaround. Can anybody provide any insight into a solution?

Thank you in advance!

Computer repairman attempting to help this older lady on her computer. Old battery was puffed up and expanded. Replaced but only getting a couple of hours of use. Checked battery usage and firefox is the main component of the issue. Any ideas on why this is? Battery usage in background is 34% and no other app on the computer is like this. Completely up to date.

Over the past few weeks my Laptop has become extremely sluggish and, on many occasions will not open the designated website. I am continually confronted by messages stating, ' a webpage is slowing your browser down ' followed by two boxes cotaining the wording ' what do you want to do, 'Stop It' - 'Wait '. Why these are submitted, I do not have a clue, they are neither activeor informative, if I click on any one of these requests, the whole message collapse and disappears. I this is someone's attempt at being clever, he should be given the dunces' cap forever and a day. I am probably off the mark here but I have a suspicion that it could be related to the FIREFOX Icon which never switches off its backlight, I have to do that manually and for a few minutes the laptop is doing its job. Could this be what is referred to the website that is slowing me down ? Any solution to my problem, or any assistance leading to a solution shall be gratefully received Regards William Walls

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.

While upgrading my FF from 56.0 to the newest, I found 792 empty text files labelled "serviceworker-xxx.txt" in my profile directory. What caused this? I'm thinking it may be related to pingfinder.exe that tries to run whenever I close the browser. I have that blocked in ZoneAlarm, but it always seems to auto-generate a new temp name/location. What is "pingfinder" and can it be renamed/deleted?

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case.

I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits, for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the 405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist. That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken.

What can I do? Thank you.
