I don't see anyplace to fix this, but for awhile now it seems whatever font Firefox uses for its own needs (Search and Address bar) is corrupted. I tried changing my settings but that doesn't seem to apply to this area so nothing changed. Basically I can't read the address bar text because there are missing letters, and I am seeing some corruption in the search bar as well. If I highlight the text, suddenly it's OK, but otherwise it's gibberish. It reminds me of LED signs where some of the bars might not be lit up so you get only a partial display.

I just updated from 55 to 84. Immediately the video driver started crashing. After three crashes, the video driver bans Firefox from using video equipment. It still works but the CPU usage in YouTube is up and the fan is spinning all the time, which it didn't do before the update. I reinstalled video card driver. I reinstalled video accelerator driver. I reinstalled the damn firefox too and then I did a clean installation. NOTHING works. Any advice? Or is it yet another "unexplained" problem that will never be solved?

Firefox was blocking a redirect when I clicked on an OFAC email to their legitimate website. Searching, I came up with this article, and WANT TO OFFER A TIP for other readers: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1253651

It states:

If you are getting a blank page or annoying prompts to Allow a redirect, here's how you can turn the redirect block off: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste access and pause while the list is filtered (3) If the accessibility.blockautorefresh preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to true, double-click it to restore the default value of false

The page threw an error that it was blocked - no offer to allow it. The referenced setting was already turned off (false) in my browser, so I toggled it OFF AND BACK ON.

This worked.

The Firefox browser keeps closing my touch keyboard whenever I try to use it in the browser. Works just fine in any other application, not sure why Firefox is getting jumpy. The keyboard opens for a hot second before immediately closing, so it is recognizing it to some extent. Could I get some help? Thanks

When I use firefox last couple of days, my pc runs particually slow and firefox reguarlay goes into not responding. I check task manager and my firefox always appears to have multiple processes open whether i have 4 tabs open or 1, It appears on taske manager like : Firefox (Logo) (6), and you can expand it so you can see each process individually. I search online and it reccomended i go on firefox setting on about:preferneces and ive set my process limit to one. However on task manager it still says i have 5 firefox process running. I am not the most tech savy however so dontknow if these multiple processes are the cause to my laptop runing slow. I have attached some images so my description makes sense. Thanks, Sean :)

After I updated to the newest Firefox on dec. 16, 2020, my computer began to operate at a terribly slow pace. Not just Firefox, everything. I worked with Apple senior advisors and their engineers to try to isolate what could be wrong. In my Mac activity monitor, the kernel_task was using over 500% of the CPU, even with no browser or application open. After 2 or 3 weeks of checking everything, Apple told me it was Firefox that was causing the slowness. I threw Firefox in the trash but nothing improved. I realized that throwing just the application in the trash did not eliminate all of Firefox, so I reinstalled it and then tried to remove anything related to Firefox from my computer. I’m not sure if I got everything, but the situation stayed the same. I reinstalled Firefox and went through all the solutions that I found on these pages. Nothing has helped. My cpu still shows amazingly high activity even when nothing is open. I cannot figure out what to do and my computer is working so slowly it is essentially useless to me. Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions?

Hi community,

I tried using my new external webcam on Google Meet but the browser could not detect it, I could only see the integrated one. First I thought there was something wrong with the new webcam but then I found out it works normally on Microsoft Edge. Anyone has an idea where the problem lies?

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

Pocket 'View List' stopped working in Firefox

I've been using pocket daily for a long time, and just recently the 'View List' feature (i.e. view the pocket website page with my saved links) stopped working in Firefox. That is accessed in the normal way using the Pocket icon in the address bar, or with the link: https://app.getpocket.com/ - they both go to the same address.

When that Pocket 'View List' page is accessed, it gives all indications of having loaded fine, but all that shows is a completely blank white page with the horizontal line and faintly greyer section at the top of the page, and absolutely nothing else.

Firefox version: 78.6.1esr

I'm pretty sure this was broken on a recent update (of Firefox). I'm also pretty sure many other things were broken in Firefox by recent updates - never had Firefox so damaged by an update before - things like on Amazon website pages (to pick something well known), product images randomly don't load (refreshing gets them to load), pages randomly display garbage (refreshing brings them back), etc, pages load fast but elements on page are not active (can't be clicked) for several seconds on complicated pages like an Amazon product page - never had this happen before recent Firefox update - I don't know if this is all related, but it feels like it is (and that Firefox has been broken in many ways only recently).

All these things, including viewing the pocket list, still work fine in Chrome.

Anyone have the post issue in Firefox? Or the other issues just recently? Is there a fix for this?

Thanks

Firefox prevents the typing (~) key from working on the typing.com website, and unfortunately I can't go through the lessons on the website because of this problem.

I tested in other browsers if the problem persisted and it appears that only firefox exhibits this behavior.

I also tested starting the browser by the way that disables the extensions and I continue the key without working.

Please, does anyone know any solution to this problem? I loved the Firefox browser and I don't want to leave it just because of that.

Live stream TV on Xfinity app blurs after 8-10 seconds. Initially the picture is crisp and clear then turns fuzzy.

This does not happen when I access recorded versions of the same program. The channels involved are not those restricted to be accessed only via my in-home wifi.

It occurs with a handful of certain cable network channels and it happens whether I'm using my laptop with Comcast or Charter ISPs. This condition does not appear with other web browsers.

Nor does it happen on my iPad, just my MacBook Pro and it hasn't always been an issue with the MBP. As far as a time frame goes, I would say it started happening within the last 6-9 months.

I appreciate any efforts to help. Thanks.

Hi, I just installed FireFox on my Early 2011 MacBook Pro, and every time a page loads up, the screen flashes and flickers with long horizontal bars. It's not just the browser bar, it's the entire screen, and it's making FireFox unusable on my laptop. I tried changing the hardware acceleration, which reduced the amount of flashing but did not stop it from happening. I also tried running FireFox in safe-mode but I am still having the same issue. Any ideas on how I can fix this?
