My coworker and I have an issue with firefox where, at the beginning of a call, our mic doesn't transmit for about 5 seconds.

I have tried clearing cache and cookies, restarting my computer, updating firefox.

I have also tried both manually accepting microphone permissions, and having it remember my choices.

We are both running Win 10, on separate networks, and we don't have this issue on other browsers

I have a Windows OS with Firefox that works normally on my network. Inside the Windows OS, I also have a virtual machine running Ubuntu 18.04, with Firefox installed inside there as well (easier to keep things sandboxed as much as possible).

Whenever I connect to a VPN (used for work), the Firefox inside the Ubuntu VM works normally with no issues. The Firefox in the Windows environment won't load any new pages, but works fine with tabs that are already open so long as they don't attempt to change pages (so for example, a chat page continues to function normally).

I cannot seem to find any solutions online, however the things I have read suggest that Firefox (Windows) is not refreshing its internal settings based on the network change.

I've got workarounds that will get me by in the short term, but I'd like to get this solved anyway.

I'm currently using Firefox 76.0b7 and I noticed that Firefox seems do have problems when High Contrast Mode was enabled.

It's simple to reproduce: Windows-Key + L (Windows Lock Screen) At the right bottom corner enable switch on high contrast mode. Than switch off high contrast mode while still in lock screen. Logon again

My Firefox then shows only a blank window, altough it stills is responding. Actually my kid tends to mess with my computer while I'm AFK, this I how I noticed it.

Scrolling Google Maps is slow for map, slower for satellite view (black areas appear), same for 3D view, loading Street View pictures takes about 10 seconds. None of these happen with Chromium browser - all is smooth. I am using an older laptop: Toshiba Satellite 2-processor Intel 2GHz, Linux Mint Bionic/Tessa. Network is 10 Mbps up and down.

This has happened before. Any thoughts?

At the start of April my browser crashed and when I restarted it I lost all of my tabs I thought I found all of them but I seem to have missed a few now when I look at my history I can't find them(I can only see back to the 6th of April). Its my understanding that firefox stores this information in the places.sqlite file but when using an sqlite reader(SysTools SQLite Database Recovery) I see up to where my history cuts off at the beginning of April. As far as the recovery program(Recuva) I used is concerned and to my knowledge my places.sqlite hasn't been deleted so I assume that firefox overwrites it in some capacity would there be any other way to see back into my march history?

Hi y'all,

I'm fresh off of a Time Machine backup, and Netflix is giving me an error code: NSES-UHX

I've found nothing anywhere online where other users have experienced this. Every other browser I've used has had no such issue. All other websites are cooperating as expected. This is exclusive to Firefox AFTER i restored from the Time Machine backup. I have tried reinstalling Firefox with no success. I deleted all cookies, and probably some other things in there as well. I originally suspected it was an issue with Silverlight, but all other streaming services are working properly. Ideally, I'll not have to do a reinstall of everything since I'm interested in keeping all of my bookmarks and history.

Your help is very much appreciated.

In using iCloud notes, every time the notes editing pane changes, a black repaint rectangle covers the pane momentarily. This happens every single time. I suspect it has something to do with the way Firefox utilizes WebGL. I have tried this in Microsoft Edge (i.e. Chromium) and this doesn't happen there.

I have some extensions installed but when I ran Firefox in safe mode, it turned off WebGL too, so that didn't help me troubleshoot the source of this issue.

Hi,

when I try to download by clicking a link often the save window has the save/ok button greyed. I couldn't figure out the pattern. It happens with different file types (executables, PDFs, images etc). I reset my profile, I created a new one. I reset Windows 10 but the problem still persists. I tried to modify the window settings of not hiding file extensions (as seen in a similar thread), but none of these tricks worked.

It is annoying because not always can I right click and choose save as (which works). Some download buttons are javascript-handled.

Thank you in advance for your help

Also deleting browser chronic takes long time, mostly doing it several times before it finally closes. using Firefox since the beginning it's getting more complicated and not user friendly like it was used to be....

Hi,

I have an issue and I can't figure out why is this. When I'm watching video on YouTube, Netflix, videa, or any other site, and I'm doing this on 4K monitor I get trouble with my play back speed. The image tearing, or stutters. (I have trouble only with the video the sound is good.) But, when I do this on 1080p It's just works perfectly. I tried this out on an other browser too, but i didn't had this problem.

My config: OS: Ubuntu 20.04 TLS Nvidia driver version: 440.64 CPU: Intel i5 Gen 4 GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070

Thaks for helping me! Sorry for my poor english.

Mozilla does not prevent my PC settings from turning off the screen when I am in a videocall and I have not manipulated the keyboard and mouse for a while (I have not noticed if it also happens when I'm playing a video). I would like to know if I can configure this in any way, since in other browsers it doesn't happen to me and I do not want to change the time with which the screen turns off.
