I am having an issue where youtube videos played at higher quality stutter when put to fullscreen. Up till about 720p60 works fine, at 1080p60 and above the framerate becomes unstable.

Things I have tried: - I have tried going into media.media-capabilities.enabled and changing it from false to true - I have set network.buffer.cache.size to 262144 - I have disabled all my plugins - I have tried changing my user agent to windows/chrome

My current setup: Firefox 122.0, Macbook pro Sonoma 14.1, Apple M1 Pro chip

Curiously, if I make a new firefox profile and play a video there, there is no stutter. Does anyone have ideas on how I can fix my current profile?

It worked nicely for many years, until today. I installed Supraland from Steam, played for a couple of hours, and suddenly my Youtube page went glitchy - not the layout but minor elements were getting scrambled, especially text. I'll attach a couple of pictures to show it. In fact, all pages glitch if their content changes even a little. As of typing now, I see the glitches, with a word or another getting butchered. Gifs and videos are full of that.

Windows 10, the current update, Radeon RX 580, the recommended AMD drivers installed (and reinstalled again and again, 23.11.1)

I think I did pretty much everything with Firefox. Disabling hardware acceleration fixes it (but then of course the browser goes slow). Games work fine, including Talos Principle 2 which is intense enough. The clean install, reinstall and all that. I'm writing from the beta stable build now. I've tried to regress to the previous versions too.

It strictly coincides with the game installation but I have no close backups - who knew that some game might just do that. Then, of course, I tried to uninstall it too.

Thoughts?

When streaming a video and using PiP, after opening another window or program and then pausing said video that is currently being played on the PiP player window, sometimes this causes the actual video itself being played via the PiP player window to freeze. So the video is paused and I want to resume play but when clicking the 'play' button on the PiP player window the video refuses to play.

The only way to clear this bug is to click the 'close' button or the 'back to tab' button on the PiP player window and then refresh the actual web page. After refreshing the web page and repeating the same steps - the PiP player window works just fine with playing and pausing, but it's annoying that I have to do this.

Hi I'm running into an issue where I'm trying to save files while retaining their original filenames, but '%' characters are changed into an underscore when I try to save it. I've tested this with Google Chrome but it doesn't run into this issue. Is there a setting or workaround so that Firefox will leave the filenames alone?

I cannot log in to my Gmail account via www.google.pl in the Firefox browser. When I try to log in via www.google.pl, the Bad Request Error 400 message appears. The same problem occurs when I need to confirm login to other websites using a Google account. I simply can't log in anywhere. This problem does not occur in other search engines. A login icon appears on the www.google.com website, but not all related services from Google are available - Google account, Google Play, Gmail, Meet, Chat, Drive, Calendar, and Photos are unavailable - these are just the most important ones that don't work. Cookies are enabled. On December 25, 2023, this problem did not exist. I tried to restore Firefox to an earlier installation date, but it didn't help. I uninstalled the extensions and plug-ins. Unfortunately, the problem remains. Please help me. Regards, Bogaczewicz Bogusława.

Fixed - After A Bookmarks' Library [Restore] Function, Tag Bookmark Names & Folders Show Duplicated

Something went wrong w/ the mouse, some of my tags disappeared & wasn't able to recover them via Ctrl+Z, so I decided to perform my 1st [Restore] (never had to do 1 before), since I had just recently done an [Export Bookmarks] & a [Backup]. Everything seems to have gone Ok, except that for every tag, all of the bookmarks listed under the [Name] column are duplicated. When I right-click & [Show In Folder], they both show in the same folder. When going onto their folder, they are only shown once, so there are no duplicates there. When I attempt to [Delete] 1 of the 2 duplicate entries they both get [Deleted], so I can only conclude that they are 1 in the same. But the question remains, "How can I fix this duplicate condition?"

Another related & interesting behavior is that, from any bookmark folder where you can clearly see there are no duplicated bookmarks, when you do a [Search] from the top-right-hand search-box, the "results" are also "duplicated", although you might need to sort them by clicking on the [Name] column control. So, I can go to any bookmark folder & clearly see that there are no duplicate bookmarks, but when you do a [Search], that's when you get duplicate entries. That leads me to believe that this is the result of the [Search] function, & thus for some odd reason the [Search] is generating "duplicate entries". And then perhaps, both the [Tag]s & the [Search] function are related.

Also, this "duplication" does not happen on newer added bookmarks, after the [Restore] was executed, & it's only a phenomenon that affects those bookmarks that were saved by the Bookmarks' Library [Backup] function, & thus this anomaly was introduced by the [Backup].

Actually, I just realized the problem is more complicated than I thought. The reason any search results in "duplicate bookmarks" is because there are 2 sets of folders, 1 set above the other, & if you don't scroll down all the way you won't see it. So that's why there are actually "2 Sets Of Bookmarks", because there are "2 Sets Of Folders", 1 above the other. The problem is that when you delete any "Duplicate Bookmark" you delete them both, & not just 1 of the 2 bookmarks.

I wonder if it would work, to "Delete All Bookmarks" & then do a [Restore]?

Could "Mozilla Support" answer that?

Don't know why every time I attempt to [Post A Reply] & get an "Error",... So I'm going to post my reply right here,...

Fix: (2024-02-19) Of course, I did some testing before I concluded what was the best approach, but since I noticed all of the "Bookmarks Folders" were duplicated under [Bookmarks Menu], an easy fix is to go to the "bottom duplicated folder", right on top of the [Other Bookmarks] folder, & "Select It" (by clicking on it) & [Delete] it (w/ the [Delete] key on your keyboard). Do this 1 by 1, until you reach the "bottom folder" of the bookmarks' folder you certainly don't want to delete. Close Firefox & then reopen it - to make sure Firefox takes care of any garbage-collection. Then do your Bookmarks' Library [Export Bookmarks To HTML] followed by a [Backup], & you are good to go.

Actually, I don't know what introduced the error. Don't know if it was Firefox's [Restore] function, or it could have been me (by accident) w/ some "unnoticed & unexpected" move of the mouse/trackball, which accidentally duplicated all of the folders w/o me noticing, & that is why all of the "Bookmarks" were "duplicated".

Happy Firefox Browsing,...

Hi there,

On Firefox, I'm experiencing "momentum" scrolling where, when I scroll using the trackpad, after I lift my fingers off, it keeps scrolling for a bit.

This is not the same thing as smooth scrolling. Disabling smooth scrolling does not disable this behaviour, and I use smooth scrolling on plenty of programs without it experiencing this "sliding" "momentum" on any of them except Firefox. I've also used Firefox before with trackpads without experiencing this.

Downloads Save all files in the following folder: Downloads Ticked Ask every time where to save a file

Applications Portable Document Format (PDF): Open in Firefox How should Firefox deal with other files? Ticked Ask whether to open or save files

On specific websites when I click on a pdf link, Firefox opens and automatically saves the file to Downloads folder without asking whether to save and where to save despite the above settings. As far as I remember, on other websites when clicking a pdf link Firefox only opens the corresponding file and doesn't save.

I found this with a internet search https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/stop-saving-pdfs-to-downloads-when-viewing-in-firefox/td-p/10225.

After updating to Beta 122.0b3 (64-bit), the active tab is now highlighted with a simple white outline instead of the coloring surrounding the address bar. My selected theme has not changed, and the same goes for all of my extensions. I could not find this change in the 122.0b Release Notes.

If this behavior is intentional, is there any option to return to the previous behavior (including in about:config)?

How can I set tabs to automatically preload when I open the browser? I'm just trying to switch from Chrome to Firefox and I can't find such a setting here, although it is a very convenient functionality. I mean that when I open the browser, I can click on any of the tabs and it will be (partially or completely) immediately ready to work without additional loading.
