Every so often, Firefox fails to display a video. In this example, Firefox briefly displays what appears to be the first frame, then displays the message "The Media Could Not Be Played". I've tried with Troubleshoot Mode, and clearing history (cache, cookies, site settings, offline website data). How can I find out what's blocking? The example is a Twitter post on Wed 08/17/2022. I hope it is still there. https://twitter.com/i/status/1551522653705576449

How to kill hung download?

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.

Hi, I have noticed this behavior for a while now and it is becoming bothersome now. It seems to happen ONLY upon initial visit to a site, any site. Once the site loads completely, any links from there loads without the black screen.

Of course, I have searched and tried the known remedies: 1) graphics driver. Chrome, Konqueror and other browsers do not exhibit this behavior. 2) FF add-on's disabled. No permanent difference. 3) Hardware acceleration disabled. No permanent difference.

I'm running 103.0.2 (64-bit) on: Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0 Qt Version: 5.15.3 Kernel Version: 5.17.5-051705-generic (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 23.4 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: llvmpipe

This is not a deal breaker but should be addressed to make FF more perfect! Best... Hong Son

Unable to set user preference on launching browser through codeceptjs

I have created a test profile and added the below line in prefs.js file user_perf("network.cookie.cookieBehavior",0);

Below is the desiredCapabilities section for codecept config file. desiredCapabilities: {

       moz:firefoxOptions: {
         args: ['--ignore-certificate-errors', '-headless', '-profile', '/path/to/my/testProfile']
       },

}

When the browser is launched it creates a temporary profile where my network cookie behavior change is not reflected and also the browser is not headless.

To set the network cookie behavior value to 0 I also used the below desiredCapabilities which also didn't work. desiredCapabilities: {

       moz:firefoxOptions: {
        args: ['--ignore-certificate-errors', '-headless', '-profile', '/path/to/my/testProfile'],
        prefs: { "network.cookie.cookieBehavior": 0 }
       },

}

When I printed an Outlook email under Firefox 103.0.2 and Windows 10 some essential parts of the email were missing, however when I printed it using Microsoft Edge it printed correctly. I tried printing directly to the printer, as "Microsoft print to PDF" and "Save to PDF". The results from the printer, and "Microsoft print to PDF" were identical, but "Save to PDF" missed out different parts of the email were missing.

If I manually type a URL into the navigation bar, by default Firefox will issue a search request to Google for the URL.

The workaround is to open another tab and manually write the URL again, this time manually adding 'http://'.

Ideally I want my browser to actually go to the URL that I supply to it.

I am trying to print html as a book using Paged.js and discovered that fonts are rendered slightly narrower when processing "Save to PDF", which means more characters fit on one line leaving too few characters for the last line on the page to justify, making it too stretched out.

Looking for the root of the problem I made a simple page with multi-column layout and "Save to PDF" breaks up the text differently there, too.

CSS for it is:

 width: 500px;
 column-count: 4;
 column-width: 100px;
 font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
 text-align: justify;
 text-justify: inter-character;

In the picture is a screenshot of the display at the top and screenshot of the pdf below. They came at different resolutions so I aligned them as best as I could. In this case browser puts "ex ea commodo" in the second column on one line but in pdf "commodo" goes onto the next one.
