10.4.22 Yesterday I had an encounter with a browser product called the wave which uses a logo deceptively similar to the swirling fox logo used for Firefox. However, it was green and upon closer inspection it was not a fox in the swirl. Perhaps coincidentally, and perhaps not, I was simultaneously unable to open Firefox, when I tried, I opened a Firefox browser template with no content, it could not be used and it could not be exited even using task manager and had to be closed by restarting my machine. Wave was not listed among my apps and hence could not be uninstalled so I simply deleted the files only to later learn, when Firefox continued to misbehave, that some wave files survived deletion. Upon deleting those I was able to use Firefox. These problems prompted me to find out where Firefox was installed and if the files were extant. This led to a discovery that Firefox was installed in 3 different locations, to-wit: (1) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox; (2) C: Users\Jeff\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox; (3) C:\windows\ProgramFiles\Mozilla Firefox. #1 ultimately was and is the one I was able to use. It was created 11.2.13 shortly after I bought the machine. #3 was created 10.3.22, modified 9.30.22 and accessed 10.3.22 and #2 was created, modified and accessed 10.3.22 and may have been the one I intentionally installed when I could not use Firefox. Perhaps installation #3 was your doing or perhaps Wave’s doing.

In the past you have expressed an interest in knowing about persons or entities who use your intellectual property (e.g. a registered trademark) without your knowledge. I cannot add images because I intentionally removed all of the wave software I could find. I opened "troubleshooting" through the help utility and selected "share data" but am not certain you will get it. Please advise if you need anything further from me. After the above I was and am now able to use Firefox.

Why do the menus take so long to load? I can't even get the bookmark menu to appear after clicking bookmarks. FF just sits there and says not responding? The browser is unusable like this. I think FF got worse in its performance back when it was made so it opens so many separate processes to operate. It worked better before that change was made. Now it doesn't load menus fast when clicked. When I click bookmarks it goes into never never land.

I pressed the firefox refresh button a year ago. It said none of my bookmarks would be lost. Ive tried countless methods to open these previous bookmarks. Nothing works. I've been given several solutions which all involve complex and many sequences. I am not tech savvy at all. Is there not a simple method to open up old bookmarks by inserting the title somewhere  ?? I have windows 7 and there is on my desktop an icon saying "old firefox data".

Thankyou Philip

Hello,

I'm currently trying to log-in on Postman application. This aplication when log-in button is pressed a tab on firefox is open with the postman site log-in. The trouble comes when trying to re-open the tab on another container. It breaks the log-in. To resolve this I would be interesting to some way to choose an specific or default container for new or incoming tabs.

This problem appears to have been around for years. However, I have never experienced it. I installed Firefox 105.0.1 (64-bit) on 2022-09-24 and since then I have been experiencing it. The PC freezes and the only solution is a reset. When I check the logs I find: Warnings like this: The Desktop Window Manager process has exited. (Process exit code: 0xe0464645, Restart count: 4, Primary display device ID: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080)

Errors like this: Faulting application name: dwm.exe, version: 10.0.19041.746, time stamp: 0x6be51595 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.19041.1949, time stamp: 0xcb12e58e Exception code: 0xe0464645 Fault offset: 0x000000000010fb62 Faulting process ID: 0x3ec Faulting application start time: 0x01d8d750b416ff93 Faulting application path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\dwm.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll Report ID: 4327992c-3041-41e6-b68a-127d0cf53bc8 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

A couple of days ago I installed version 105.0 (64-bit) and the problem hasn't occurred yet.

So, I conclude the problem is with version 105.1.

I updated my Firefox today and now videos do not play.

I had this problem back in April after an update and I spent weeks troubleshooting it. Eventually I got it to work after trying all of the following (then, and again now):

Things I've Tried: 1.) Clearing data (cache and cookies) 2.) Turning off "Strict Mode" 3.) Running CCleaner 4.) Disabling/enabling HW acceleration 5.) Checking that the DRM box is checked (and trying it without it checked) 6.) Refreshing Firefox 7.) Uninstalling/Reinstalling 8.) Updating my Windows install 9.) Updating drivers 10.) Disabling all Firefox extensions 11.) Running without extensions 12.) Running in Firefox Troubleshooting Mode 13.) Running Windows in Safe Mode with Networking 14.) Running a fresh install of Firefox without signing in after deleting all traces of Firefox from my PC (including Program Data folders, registry entries, etc.)

What finally worked back in April was to dive into "about:config" and change "media.rdd-processenable" to "false".

That fix does not work this time around.

In the meantime I've been using Brave and having no issues. I've tried video playback in Chrome, Opera, and Edge on this computer with no issues. This playback problem is exclusive to Firefox.

Video playback still works just fine on my 4 home PCs running Windows 10 and Pop_OS (3 self-built, one Asus laptop) using this same build of Firefox.

Other/Rant: I suspect this is a Firefox/Windows 11 problem. Most likely this is not something I can fix myself, but it's incredibly frustrating since I'm buried deep in the Mozilla ecosystem and use it for work. I'd prefer not to have to swap between browsers just so I can watch videos; too many windows open on this tiny work laptop isn't fun to juggle. Basic video playback is the #1 thing I use my web browser for at both work and home so it'd be nice if this irritating, months-long, unacceptable issue were resolved. A modern browser that has video playback issues? What good is it then? What's most irritating is that it seems I'm the one of a very small number of users with this issue, since I see very little posted about it online.

I've been a Firefox user primarily for almost half a decade now - moved over from Chrome for privacy issues. Never had a problem until 4/22 of this year and considering it's still an issue 3 months later... it has me re-evaluating the reliability and my commitment to an otherwise amazing browser.

So this problem is isolated with Firefox as it doesn't happen with Edge or VLC on this pc. If I have Twitch or Youtube, probably any other audio or video playing, open when I turn the monitor off the audio will no longer go through properly when it is turned back on. The video is still playing fine but the audio isn't going through properly. Refreshing the page fixes the issue.

I have made sure to disable all other audio outputs and defaulted the current HDMI output. Audio playback works fine on every other application that I have tried.

Running Windows 11.
