Hi Firefox Community,

About a month ago, I purchased a 2020 HP Pavilion Laptop. While using Firefox, the system audio periodically drops with no system acknowledgment (drivers don't know the sound dropped). This means that sound will not play in Firefox or in any other application on the PC. (The system also won't play test sounds through Control Panel) The moment I close all windows in Firefox, the audio to my system returns. Any chance this is a common issue? Does anyone know why my computer's sound unexpectedly drops from time to time? Any help is appreciated

I have been using firefox for a while now mainly because the power and memory use is much lower than Chrome. However, the other day I was using firefox and had 1 google doc tab open when my Mac have me a warning that it was out of memory. The main user of memory was Firefox, using 60 gb of memory, despite the fact that my laptop only has 8 gb of memory. I didnt get a picture as my laptop crashed soon after. Is this a common issue and what can i do to resolve it?

I am having this issue in Microsoft Edge as well as Firefox. I am using Windows 10. I have cleared my cookies/cache. Restarted my computer. I have checked my settings, unless there is something I missed.

I am having an issue with viewing images. I can see most images in the emails, but when I try to print, it is not there. For instance. I get an email to print a coupon from a restaurant. You click the link to print, but there is not coupon. I have attached what part of the email and what happens when you click to print. It comes up perfectly in Chrome.

I appreciate any help.

Firefox hogging hard drive space with temp files (cubeb-shm...input/output)

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!

It would be great if support for Google Indic Keyboard is included in Firefox. This would ensure more local language use in various websites.

As of now the workaround is to open Google Translate or Google Transliteration in a new tab and manually copy the output to the original tab.

I think Firefox Sync from Desktop to Mobile is having issues. I am not seeing the saved logins cascaded across the devices even after an explicit manual Sync option exercised too.

Or is it mandatory to install Lockwise also installed in both the devices. I was of the opinion that the built-in sync of the browser would take care of this requirement.

I just added a new subdomain on a site and when I entered the address the first time it had not been properly set up with an index page, so it loaded a defaultpage from my webhotel at /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

The problem: This redirect is now cached, so every time I enter the address in firefox I get redirected to the same default page, and a ctrl-f5 will not work since it will reload the redirected page.

I would really like to see a ctrl-enter from the address bar doing the same thing (as ctrl-f5 does for reload) but for the address typed in the address bar. Now I had to open developer-tools->Settings and click in "Disable Cache (when toolbox is open)". Which is roundabout and kind of annoying. I really don't see why this should be necessary, especially since it would be much easier to just tell people to ctrl-enter (or it's equivalent on Mac) if they run into this specific problem, with a very easy (for me the user) fix, even if it's not simple to implement.

This was working perfectly on my old PC, but recently I built a new one and logged into Firefox and it pulled down my extensions and what not..

What I am running into, is when I close Firefox and open it back up my tabs that were in containers do re-open but they are no longer in their respective container. I have to right click the tab and select "re-open in..." to get it back in the correct container.

I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled and it has the same result. Has anyone else experienced this?

Just a few days ago I was still using Firefox 84 where all fonts were displayed properly in the font select options.

After upgrading the browser to 85 (or 85.0.1/85.0.2 maybe), all fonts installed later in the system have disappeared from the selection list, and the selected option has become the default option.

  • Pic.1 - Fonts installed in system such as Inter(sans-serif), JetBrains Mono(monospace)

I don't see anymore comments from other Instagram users in my comment section (the one with a heart icon). This only happened for the last three days or so. I used to be able to read comments form other users, but now when I click on the heart icon, I get a message that says "fail to upload". Now I have to remember which photos I looked and commented and go to the particular photos to see if anyone has made any comments. Why is this happening?

Checking on a surprise loss of 12.5 gigs, in an hour. and not online during that time, they are "looking into it."

Did a review of data usage per app and found that Firefox has used over 18g of data in the last 30 days alone. How is that possible? A relatively new phenomenon.

Suggestions?

No virus, no malware, ran a few other tests. No issues.

One add on is being used right now. all others have been off.

Thinking FireFox is hijacked?

Thank you.
