Hello,

I love Mozilla Firefox thus am asking this.

Why is graphics performance worse in Firefox than it is on Microsoft's Edge and Google's Chorme browser?

Is it a matter of settings or what?

I have a AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE APU which is very capable of decoding 4k@60 VP9, but when I try watching Youtube videos in this video settings on Firefox, the frame reproduction isn't smooth. I don't have that problem with Chrome and/or Edge.

The video in question is the following:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wo3aJjwTlA

PS: not sure why but some 4k@60 VP9 videos on Youtube lag more than others.

Hello,

This issue seems somewhat unique. Using Firefox on 85.0.1 64-bit (but existed for a while) on Ubuntu 20. My laptop is a dell Inspiron with an nvidia GeForce MX250 and driver version 450.102.04 (but, again, this problem existed on earlier drivers). I dual boot Windows 10 on this laptop and use firefox there, but do not have any issues there.

Sometimes Firefox will just start unloading pieces of the web page. It's not that the tab is crashing, the parts just start visibly disappearing, and I can see other applications or my wallpaper behind it. When a youtube video is playing, the sound will keep going (without issue) even after the video stops and eventually disappears. I can reproduce this problem by having a youtube video playing in a tab, closing my laptop to idle it, and reopening it and logging back in. Doing so ensures this issue happens immediately, but the issue will still occur at other times, with or without a youtube video playing (that's just what I use to test the issue as per my example given).

Going through existing articles, I followed the steps in this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1275189 since my issue seemed similar to theirs. Restarting Firefox in safe mode did indeed stop the issue! Then, I followed the steps to diagnose if it was an extension or hardware acceleration. (I use the default theme so that's not the issue.)

Disabling hardware acceleration didn't solve the problem. Okay, maybe it's not that, I'll turn off the (only) extension I have... And that didn't work either. I turned off hardware acceleration and my extensions, and the issue is still being produced.

So, I'm trying to understand, if safe mode only deactivates extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, why does the issue go away in safe mode but persist in normal mode with all extensions and hardware acceleration turned off on the default theme?

Attached are images of the "unloading" issue. Any help would be appreciated.

I've looked for hours on this issue, to no avail. I'm currently working on a kiosk setup and would like to use FF if possible. One hurtle that keeps cropping up is the error message "Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting".

Is there a way to disable this and any other dialogs that popup?

I was randomly getting the BSOD in Win 10 Pro 64b. Message said the error was "Unexpected Kernel Mode Trap". No external devices were connected, no new software had been installed, all drivers looked good. RAM was replaced (16GB). After looking at event viewer I saw that Firefox was running in all events. I uninstalled Firefox and it seems problem has stopped. Is this common, do I just need to re-install Firefox????

Thanks, KL

In https://www.tvtv.ca/bc/abbotsford/v2t5t1/lu36260D I opt to save my favorite channels. They then appear whenever I go to the site. Until-- I leave Firefox or reboot the computer and the favorites are no longer available. If I do the same thing in Chrome, it remembers the preferences at all times, including after rebooting. Is there a way to make Firefox work as well as Chrome on this issue?

Recently I switched to Firefox from chrome.It is better than before.But it lacks some customizable features.Like I can't set a Firefox homepage wallpaper.It is the simplest thing every browser has.But I know that I can do so by setting a custom URL as home page.but I would literally like to have that feature in the default homepage.I don't know if any options are there or not,but it would be great.And the read aloud feature that is in chrome is also not available in Firefox.This is the feature i use a lot while reading books online. And these are the minor customizable features that I would like to have.

hi, i just installed ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I am not running any extensions or add-ons, just default settings. I can't play any youtube video that is considered 'live'. I can watch any other video on youtube, however. For the 'live' videos, I get a message: 'Your browser can't play this video, learn more' And when I click learn more, it says my browser is up to date. I tried streaming other videos from websites like crunchyroll.com and none work. I followed some suggestions to clear cache, turn on video/audio settings, etc. but nothing is working. Please assist. thanks.

Hello

Should Firefox be syncing between installations on different platforms?

On my Windows Firefox, I have the CamelCamelCamel extension and the Facebook containers extension, but on Linux those aren't being picked up!

What am I missing? When I force it to Sync on Manjaro Linux, it says it is all synced up, but those extensions I mentioned aren't coming through!

Thanks

OK, I've selected automatic updates for Firefox. MacBook Air. So, I need to restart in order for the update to INSTALL. I can't just close and re-open Firefox to get the update. After I restarted, Youtube would not play. AGAIN. This happens with EVERY update. So, following instructions from an entry on the web, I erased my history. OK, now Youtube plays. But I notice I've lost my bookmarks in the process. I've mentioned this before. What's the secret to getting you experts to pay attention to this annoying, recurring thing? I would not have lost my bookmarks if I did not have to erase my history. Why can't updates be provided that will allow me to play youtube and KEEP my bookmarks--- like on every other day??? Thank you.

Hi everybody. For reasons I don't fully understand the Amazon search prompt on my copy of Firefox is for amazon.co.uk. I'd like to keep the search prompt but would much prefer to have my local website (amazon.it). I've fiddled a bit with settings but cannot find an option to modify the extension: is this possible?

Thanks.
