Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Your browser, which requires daily updates for some unknown reason , has disabled Java Script which means I can not access photos on websites such as Bring A Trailer which also has adopted its' f... you attitude by eliminating their support.

If you have an accurate fix for my version of Firefox (lord knows how to find it), please provide in straight forward English that those over 30 can understand.

So like my title says, I recently started noticed my computer is very slow, making very loud fan noises every 5 - 15 seconds and freezing when the fan becomes loud. I notice in task manager I am running 9-10 firefox processes which take up close to 100% memory, even though I am running 1 tab. I don't know if this a virus, or bug, but it is screwing my computer over. I have 8 GB Ram, and it shows 100% in memory sometimes from firefox, I think this is some virus, but I don't know how to get rid of it.

I have been updating as changes are announced but have not visited one particular site for a month, so I do not know when this bug was introduced. Although clicking on PDFs on most sites "saves" the PDFs according to the application PDF settings, this one particular site opens the PDF file in your built-in viewer instead of saving the file.

I have both of the PDF Application settings set to "Save File" and set "pdfjs.disabled" = true. There are no issues with changing any settings and, other than this one site, Firefox is working just fine.

I know that there is a "Save" button on the viewer, but this just adds two extra steps for these PDF files that I want to save.

I inspected the element and it appears to be <a _ngcontent-hmk-c29="" class="edoc-linkIcon">Statements</a>

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I have Bing removed from my search engines and when I call up a new window Bing is not there, YAY. But if an app creates a window, even Thunderbird, the window has Bing as it default search engine and is back in the list of search options. This must be a default within Firefox itself or some data file where this comes from. How can I permanently remove Bing.

Addition information, if I lose all my open windows during a crash, last happened when I updated my bios it also reverts to Bing.

Delete Account functionality

Even though I previously deleted the Firefox account associated with my usual e-mail address, Firefox appears to remember this account. However, it does NOT remember the password associated with this account. If I want to reset the password, I am told via Firefox message that this entails possible loss of personal data, incl. bookmarks, which defeats the purpose of creating an account in the first place.

So I can neither re-create nor log in to this zombie account but have to use a different e-mail address in order to use Firefox account functionality.

Getting help in this situation without a working Firefox account is also next to impossible (without a Twitter account, at least), as I needed to get an account even to access the page from which I am writing this. Firefox browser feedback is also disabled, Firefox Facebook is paused.

If the above description is correct, then I guess the only help is a reworking of the Delete Account functionality.

NOTES:

  • This is not a case of forgotten password (I wrote it down on paper at the time) or wrongly-typed password (I copied and pasted the password string from Notepad when previous login attempts had been unsuccessful.)
  • The deletion of the previous account took place on 2019-01-08 and included confirmation "Account deleted successfully".
  • When I created a new account for a different e-mail address today, I was informed by Firefox that a Firefox account had previously been created from the same machine for a different e-mail address. So, not only does Firefox remember the e-mail address of an allegedly successfully deleted account but also the identity of the machine associated with that account.

How do I configure Firefox to connect to my proxy server using HTTPS, not HTTP?

If I enter "tls.example.com" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox sends an unencrypted "CONNECT" header on port 443. Of course, this is wrong, because my proxy server only speaks HTTPS, not HTTP.

If I enter "https://tls.example.com/" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." but in fact, Wireshark confirms that Firefox never even tries to connect to anything! It never sends a single SYN packet at all.

According to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378637 Firefox does support the behavior described. That link doesn't explain how to configure it, though.

Hello to FredMcD

Thank you very much for responding to my post and so quickly. I’ve not yet started Firefox in safe mode but have done the other things you mentioned. As I have dealt with lots of problems (solved now thanks to help from MS, Parallels, Apple) over the last month, I think I’ll wait a few days before moving ahead with this one.

Hi all, I have this problem: my webcam (is an USB camera on a desktop with Windows 10 - Innoo Tech 1080HD - quite a low budget one) does not work on the first on Firefox (using Google meet or any webcam test site), but after I run a FPS test on (https://it.webcamtests.com/fps) it will star working. I already have given the necessary permission for using the camera (checked both on windows and mozilla options) to all sites. Here is the thing: when I start a call in Google meet it says "camera is starting" but nothing appear on the screen. The camera does not work also in all sites for testing the webcam, nothing appear in the screen. But here is the trick: if I run the FPS test on webcamtests.com all start working, but if I close firefox on the next time I will open it, the camera will not start working again. All the times I run the FPS test the camera starts working properly.

How could I solve seriously this problem? thanks Lorenzo

Hello, I ran into a problem that I can not watch streams on YouTube. They all freeze. The browser plays any other videos perfectly. I tried to run the same streams through the opera, everything works fine there. I did not find a solution in the Google search engine. I ask for help. ps PC is powerful enough, and there are no problems with the Internet. The problem lies in the browser itself, but I do not understand where exactly.
