I wonder if someone could help on some questions about `GC` on `firefox`.

    • Q1-** Is possible to call the action performed when I click on the button `GC` using javascript?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/JgoNx.png

    • Q2-** on `about:config` there's an option `javascript.options.gc_delay.full`, is this option the same than clicking on the button `gc` on `about:memory`?

https://i.stack.imgur.com/dimKW.png

    • Q3-** I'm searching about of what of these enumerated options does, and found that:

`1-` Is the default amount of time to wait from the user being idle to starting a shrinking GC.

`2-` `javascript.options.gc_delay` ??

`3-` `javascript.options.gc_delay.full` ??

`4-` `javascript.options.ion.full.threshold` ??

If someone knows the answer to these questions.

I'm using FF Version 84.0.2 and have increasingly experienced slowness and problems loading many websites with "Performing TLS handshake ........" statuses and other delays. Several sites will not load at all. To resolve, Firefox has to be closed, reopened, and then the sites may load OK or still slowly load. I'm using Duck Duck Go as the search engine. I've searched online fix articles and tried several ideas but couldn't find any current/recent solutions, have done Refresh, and built new profile too. Anyone having this problem or have solution ideas that will work? Thanks

Printing from Firefox is really slow--2-3 minutes before the print menu appears, and then another minute before the printer actually goes to work. "Printing" to a .pdf file takes just a long before the file appears on the desktop.

The problem is uniform across all the websites I've tried it on.

I don't have the problem with Safari or Chrome.

Restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled makes no difference. Deleting the printer setting didn't help. Resetting all Firefox printer settings didn't help. Refreshing Firefox helped once, but only for the first print job after the refresh, then the problem reappeared.

This issue started fairly recently, maybe when Firefox v.84 appeared (?)

I'm using Firefox 84.0.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a late 2012 iMac.

This problem does not show up in the family's MacBook Pros, which have the same version of Firefox, but newer OS versions.

I'm resistant to updating the OS, because too many of the apps I use regularly don't play nicely with the newer versions of macOS.

Help!

Thanks, Wimsey

Firefox has a "list all tabs" button, which looks like a "v" in the tabs bar, next to the plus. It works great but when I maximize the window (not F11 full screen, but Windows OS Maximize Window), this button disappears. Seems like a bug; I can't think why you would want that button to be removed when the window is maximized.

Windows 10 touch keyboard auto closes in Firefox

Hi I am running Firefox version 84.0.2 on Windows 10 (Build 19042) - Desktop mode I like to use my computer with a mouse only and I use the built in Windows 10 touch keyboard when I need to type something.

My problem is that every time I click on the touch keyboard button (lower right corner of Windows 10) when in Firefox, the touch keyboard opens and then automatically closes. I think this is a problem with Firefox because the touch keyboard works fine in Edge as well as Notepad and other applications

my about:config osk settings are as follows services.sync.prefs.sync.ui.osk.enabled - true ui.osk.detect_physical_keyboard - true ui.osk.enabled - true ui.osk.require_win10 - false

The message that appears under ui.osk.debug.keyboardDisplayReason is the following ui.osk.debug.keyboardDisplayReason - IKPOS: Touch screen not found.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please help

I recently updated Windows, and now Firefox is refusing to load any webpages. Whenever I try to load a page nothing happens and the main part of the webpage fails to load and the main body of the browser is grey and empty.

It also won't load the Options menu. Uninstalling and reinstalling hasn't changed anything.

This issue doesn't happen in my other browsers.

Good day,

Since updating windows 10 to version 20h2, Firefox is Laggy and never done this before updating windows10 to 20h2. I would seriously look into this as MS.Edge is working smooth but all other browsers are lagging. Microsoft has done something with the update which is making all other browsers lag except for theirs. This is unfair practice as we all like using Firefox and Microsoft wants to take the monopoly with Edge. Please Firefox Team resolve this issue or please look into it as i am not the only one experiencing this issue after updating windows 10 in recent days.

Hello, we develop an angular application. One of our users couldn't login any more. He uses Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) under Mac. He get's the error `ERROR DOMException: The quota has been exceeded` in Console. Reloading Page even with COMMAND+R didn't work. We deleted the cashed files under settings, as displayed in https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/gallery/images/2018-04-29-04-08-27-fabea4.png (with both checkboxes). It only worked when we deleted the file webappstorage.sqlite in profile folder. Is that a bug?

Thanks in advance.

I don't see anyplace to fix this, but for awhile now it seems whatever font Firefox uses for its own needs (Search and Address bar) is corrupted. I tried changing my settings but that doesn't seem to apply to this area so nothing changed. Basically I can't read the address bar text because there are missing letters, and I am seeing some corruption in the search bar as well. If I highlight the text, suddenly it's OK, but otherwise it's gibberish. It reminds me of LED signs where some of the bars might not be lit up so you get only a partial display.

I just updated from 55 to 84. Immediately the video driver started crashing. After three crashes, the video driver bans Firefox from using video equipment. It still works but the CPU usage in YouTube is up and the fan is spinning all the time, which it didn't do before the update. I reinstalled video card driver. I reinstalled video accelerator driver. I reinstalled the damn firefox too and then I did a clean installation. NOTHING works. Any advice? Or is it yet another "unexplained" problem that will never be solved?

Hello,

I've got a laptop Dell XPS 9380 that comes with an Intel UHD Graphics 620 as Video Chipset. I run in under Fedora 33 with the distro provided package (as of now version 84). The playback on some videos is choppy, I have one picture on 10 I'd say.

How can I fix that, can you point me some solution ?

thanks

Firefox was blocking a redirect when I clicked on an OFAC email to their legitimate website. Searching, I came up with this article, and WANT TO OFFER A TIP for other readers: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1253651

It states:

If you are getting a blank page or annoying prompts to Allow a redirect, here's how you can turn the redirect block off: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste access and pause while the list is filtered (3) If the accessibility.blockautorefresh preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to true, double-click it to restore the default value of false

The page threw an error that it was blocked - no offer to allow it. The referenced setting was already turned off (false) in my browser, so I toggled it OFF AND BACK ON.

This worked.

I recently started having my browser become VERY VERY slow. I noticed that this occurred because it is always waiting for information/data for s.yimg.com. When I looked up info about this it said that this is a nasty advertisement browser add-on. I ran Avast scan, CCleaner, and Spybot, but nothing detected it or fixed the problem. Please help, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Any need for specific information will be addressed.
