I'm currently using KDE Plasma on Archlinux and Firefox windows are very laggy when maximized. I have a 4K screen and running Firefox at full 4K causes scrolling to be very choppy and makes YouTube almost unresponsive. If I make the window smaller (about a quarter of the screen or the size of typical 1080p), it speeds up and works normally. I've tried the nightly build, Icecat, and Waterfox and none of them have made any difference.

I use a AMD Radeon R9 Fury X GPU and have the latest version of xf86-video-amdgpu installed and have hardware acceleration enabled in Firefox settings.

EDIT: I've now tried Firefox in Cinnamon Desktop as well as KDE Plasma and they are both equally laggy.

Ok, this has been happening for over a year now. I have tried resetting Firefox, reinstalling it, running it 100% clean without any add-ons and whatsoever. None of these fixed my issue. Whenever I find myself using Firefox for more than a day or so, without closing it, the problems start to occur. First hours of the problem occurring, it starts to freeze from time to time for 1-2 secs, after that it freezes 1-2 times for 10+ secs and finally it just hangs until I force close it. I think it is caused by videos mostly, because whenever the crash happens, I'm browsing a website with a video. Around 80% of the final unending hang happens whenever I play a video. Whenever I go to force-close the browser, I always find it at 30+ CPU usage. Since I am unable to create a Firefox log or some sort of detailed information, I am uploading an image and list (https://pastebin.com/KpVAYjhD) of firefox handles (because GetHandleVerifier function seemed most suspicious and could be related) that I think might help you with debugging the issue.

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Script: https://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-1.9.1.min.js:5

Whether it's this exact message or not it is not uncommon (once every couple of hours or so) to have Firefox stop working and show this message. It works far more 'clunky' (slow, cryptic, unpredictable, unreliable) since about three updates ago.

Firefox will not print to Canon LBP7660C correctly

Color Laser Printer; Canon LBP7660C, UFR II driver.

Windows 10 version 1607, build 14393.1066 (& the 5 or 6 prior to that)

Firefox v53.0 (& about the dozen before that).

ONLY Firefox, ALL other Windows 10 applications print correctly.

Have attempted all of the work arounds and suggestions, removing, reinstalling, totally purging all of Firefox, etc.

1) Ignores which tray to draw paper or envelopes from; always only wants the manual feed tray

2) Incorrectly scales printed objects & pages. For example, a return label from Amazon is printed about 1/4 the actual size. A web page is between 1/3 to 1/5 its actual size. An airline boarding pass (United, American, & Delta) is about 1//4 the correct size.

3) Ignores all graphics scale setting in the printer driver setup

4) Ignores settings for color/black & white/grayscale

5) Ignores settings for printing on one or two sides, always only prints on one side

And several more printing related issues.

Also incorrectly scales anything printed to Adobe Acrobat X, when opened & printed through Firefox, when opened from Acrobat directly, prints correctly.

ONLY Firefox. No other application has any of these issues.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks
