I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

WebGL creation fails on Firefox.

Firefox is having issues with WebGl on my Ubuntu 20.04 and therefore fails on several HTML5 pages (eg. https://www.wirple.com/bmark/). This issue is not present in other browsers so I chalk it up as an issue with firefox rather than my driver.

I am using NVIDIA driver 455, which works best on my machine by all benchmarks.

Here is the snapshot of my about:support page relevant sections:

  • WebGL 1 Driver WSI Info -
  • WebGL 1 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed: * WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false restricts context creation on this system. * Exhausted GL driver options.
  • WebGL 1 Driver Version -
  • WebGL 1 Driver Extensions -
  • WebGL 1 Extensions -
  • WebGL 2 Driver WSI Info -
  • WebGL 2 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed: * AllowWebgl2:false restricts context creation on this system.

GPU #1 Active Yes Description GeForce 940M/PCIe/SSE2 Vendor ID 0x10de Device ID GeForce 940M/PCIe/SSE2 Driver Vendor nvidia/unknown Driver Version 455.45.1.0 RAM 0


I am also unable to find " AllowWebgl2:false" and "WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false" in my about:preferences.

Below is the console output when this error happens on an HTML5 game (works perfectly on other browsers)

I didn't mind this bug in about a week ago, but it is sufficiently annoying enough. The firefox is deleting last letter consists of my locale, hangul, when I search it through address bar.

It occurs when searching more than 2 words. Precisely, conditions are two. 1. one or more space bar between two words. 2. the last word has more than one letter.

ex) ㄱ ㄴㄷ(enter) --(when searching through address bar)--> ㄱ ㄴ

It is resolved by adding space bar or move the cursor to the right of the letter. So you can't reproduce it with just copying that words. You need to search with korean locale keyboard to reproduce that bug. Anyway, it's still annoying doing things what I should not do with the previous version.

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

I've done google searches on how to stop this problem and tried everything suggested but nothing works. Any ideas before I say adios to this slow crappy browser?

When pressing the speaker icon in Google Translate, I get a toast message saying "Can't playback audio. Try refreshing page." I also have a plugin that uses an online library of sounds to pronounce highlighted words, but does not produce any audio when pressing play.

Things I've tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Restarting my Machine
  • Toggling all auto-play features, hardware acceleration, extensions, and plugins
  • Starting Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Configuring speakers
  • Re-enabling Firefox in Windows Firewall

In the Developer console I get the following error message: DOMException: An unknown error occurred while processing decodeAudioData. (Attached screenshot)

My current Windows version is 1909

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

When using the dev tools, I'll frequently update the style on a page I'm editing, then switch over to the inline stylesheet to copy and paste the changes I've made into my .CSS file. For some reason when I make updates, they don't show up in the inline stylesheet.

When I make changes and write styles here: https://prnt.sc/vt6mvv

I don't see them here: https://prnt.sc/vt6n97

I used to use this feature all the time in Firefox, but then it stopped working for me some point years ago. I think it was just broken by an update, or some local issue. But it's followed me across versions of Firefox and across machines.

Which makes me wonder if I just don't understand the way this is supposed to work, of if this actually is an issue.

I use this same workflow in Chrome all the time and it works just as I expect. I'd like to come back to Firefox because I like some of the dev tools better, but I just can't work in Firefox without this working.

Any help would be appreciated.

Running v 60 ESR, downgraded from v 68, with zero problems for 3 weeks.

I've had this problem all of a sudden since last week. Steps I've taken so far:

  • Changed "security.tls.version.min" to 3 from 1 (didn't work)
  • Deleted cert8.db (didn't work)
  • Changed to Google DNS (not sure)
  • Changed to "auto-detect proxy" from "system proxy" (not sure, maybe)
  • Disabled IPV6 (not sure, maybe)
  • Turned off/on wifi hotspot, rebooted laptop (not sure, maybe)

The last 3 steps I took at the same time and they worked. On reboot the problem went away, albeit for 2 days!

It just came back, now it's performing a TLS handshake on about half the sites, with loading after 30-60 seconds or not at all. From searching, I see that solutions are all over the place on this and it's specific to FF. A post clearly identifies a Symantec certificates issue.

This is probably the toughest issue I've come across on FF.

For our website we de use OAuth2 to login. For this to succeed we need to store some data in de localstorage or sessionstorage. But the data in the storage is cleared when we redirect back from our authenticator. This only happens when `delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed` is checked.

We are not closing Firefox, we are only redirecting the between two different domains. Is this intended?
