Hello, I am at a loss to trying to fix a problem after extensive troubleshooting. When I am on Facebook for about five minutes, Firefox stops loading most images. This only occurs with Firefox, not Safari or Chrome. And it only occurs with Facebook and Instagram, which is owned and run by Facebook. I have to restart Firefox to get images back and then after five minutes or so, it happens again every time. Can anyone help? This is driving me crazy!

Thank you

About a year ago, I tried switching from Chrome to use Firefox as my primary browser. I love many of the built in privacy features and Facebook Container, etc. But as I've been using Firefox, I've discovered sometimes things just stop working with no indication or errors explaining why.

Maybe SOLVED: I finished typing out this whole post and discovered the uBlock Origin extension is probably what has been causing all of this.

First I remember encountering oddities was with Gmail. My email was up, but refused to load messages. It seemed to think it couldn't connect to the server or something and just kept retrying ever 5 minutes. I thought my internet was out, but then discovered other sites worked, and Gmail worked fine in Chrome. Since then I've encountered numerous times where sites just don't work or don't respond in Firefox, and I have no idea why. Sometimes restarting the browser helps, but sometimes I close out of Firefox and can't launch it again because the system says it's still running.

Many times the only fix is to just use a different browser.

Just yesterday I ran into issues navigating FAFSA or Federal Student Aid (FSA) on https://studentaid.gov The site loads up and logging in to complete the FSA application works, but I can't click on any of the links in the dropdown menus across the top and those same links down at the bottom of the page don't work either. They just don't respond. If I open the site in Chrome, they work fine. The only button along the top that works in Firefox is the FSA Title that returns to the home page. The links down in the middle of the page seem to work as well, but the top and bottom navigation just don't respond. Well, they don't respond to left clicks. Hovering the mouse shoes the URL they point to, and I can right click on them. I just tried testing right clicking and using "Copy Link" to copy and paste the address and Firefox goes to the pages directly just fine. This one for example: https://studentaid.gov/understand-aid/types But even on that page the links in the dropdown menus up top and the site navigation at the bottom still don't work.

While searching for help just now, I discovered Breakages due to Tracking Protection: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/report-breakage-due-blocking So I tried that, but that didn't fix the site.

Again, this isn't the only site I've encountered this issue, it happens all the time. Today when I encountered issues in my college's online bookstore I finally came to the conclusion that this happens often enough that I can't use Firefox as my default browser. The thought of having to abandon Firefox is extremely upsetting to me, so I'm reaching out to see if we can fix it before I have to swap back to Chrome.

Attached is a screenshot of my college online bookstore. After logging in, I should be able to search for my course materials through a series of filter selections based on the term, program, and course ID. But no matter how vigorously I click on the summer or fall term options, they just don't register that I'm clicking or selecting them.

What information can I provide to help you test this? I've also included screen shots of my Extensions... and that led to the discovery that uBlock Origin might be the culprit for all of this. ugh... Well, I guess I'll upload in case this helps anyone else.

Thank you.

Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?

I am trying to change my e-mail address by following the steps provided in here. According to the support pages, in order to do that I need to add a secondary e-mail address and then make it primary.

Until there everything's clear. My issue, though, comes precisely when I try to add that information. The system doesn't recognize the new address. Instead, a message appears saying "Account already exists", when that's not possible, since I never delivered it or linked it with Firefox before, nor even I have received or accepted any validation through the said e-mail. I'm guessing that Mozilla ain't grasping that the address really belongs to another e-mail client.

Illustration: Let's say my current address is <example100@outlook.com> When I try to add the following secondary address <example100@protonmail.com>, the aforementioned message will prompt.

Why? What's going on? Is there any solution available? Thank you beforehand, I can't wait to hear from somebody with a remedy.

Hi! I use Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3. I tried to speed up video on Sharepoint. Right click -> speed -> 2.0 and nothing happend. When I right click -> speed again, I saw that speed still 1.0. Then I went to google, found that Sharepoint allow speed up videos only in HTML5 player. Then I knew that to do that in Firefox I should disable Hardware acceleration, so I did it, but it didn't help. OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco add-on is activate.

Then I decided that's Ubuntu. I install ubuntu-restricted-extras, ffmpeg packages (to support h.264 video), restarted, but again that didn't work.

youtube.com/html5 saying that everything fine.

I have Windows 11 IE with all available updates as of late. Chrome works like a charm. Faster than ever, actually. However, I missed Firefox and it has all my settings the way I like and doesn't have the annoying download feature than Chrome has where it leaves little files along with the download cluttered all over your desktop.

I have had Firefox deleted from my system for months now and have been using Chrome as my daily browser. I wanted to give Firefox a chance again, seeing as I have Windows 11 IE installed, and figuring that maybe there was a Windows 10 Pro bug that was causing the slowness within Firefox, but no, it is definitely Firefox. I even installed Firefox on my M1 Macbook Pro and immediately deleted it as it was using a TON of resources and slowing down my machine.

Can ANYONE please help me in finding out what is wrong with Firefox to make it so very slow in loading for the first time upon firing up my machine. It somewhat loads ok after it's been closed and loaded again a while later, but this waiting forever for it to load on startup is absolutely ridiculous.

For the record, I don't know how to use the about:help stuff, so if you are going to suggest something, then please be very specific as I have not really dabbled in that so know next to nothing about that feature. Appreciate it.

The issue occurs after viewing a YouTube video in full screen and returning to the subscription home page. The top of the home page no longer appears at the top, it's missing and the script is displayed to the left of the monitor screen where it's partially blocked. The glitch is present on all subscription sites recently visited, not an isolated case.

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.9 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor Pen and touch No pen or touch input is available for this display

GTX 1070 GPU 8Gb

This issue is also present on my Thinkpad running Firefox 92.0 64. Different graphics system.

First image shows the displaced content, the next image, after pressing F11 to resolve, is the correct content.

Tried the suggested fixes to no avail, last try was a Firefox re-install which didn't fix the issue. This glitch was not present before the most recent Firefox update.

The work around is to press F11 to restore the display to its proper order.

Thanks for any help.

Macbook Pro 15-inch, Late 2008 Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit) mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Problem is manifesting when I try and use Wordpress websites. Some fail to load or take some time. When editing in the backend - same issues, and when using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme on page editing does not work. Cannot open settings for modules, hovers over editable areas not behaving.

Looked at Console and it is showing this error repeatedly. Also showing many other errors too with Chrome and various OS functions.

9/15/21 11:56:25.614 AM firefox[1063]: stat on /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/eq2ony84.default-1556047105747/weave/commands.json: No such file or directory

First, what is the error and can it be fixed.

Second, would it be having any effect on the issues described.

Struggling to get my work done. Thanks for your insights.

I have just installed Firefox in Debian Buster on a Chromebook (arm64) using snap. The installation had no errors, but when I launch Firefox from the command line, I get a string of warnings in the terminal, about 7 variations on these two (the numbers are different every time I attempt it):

(firefox:1012): Gdk-WARNING **: 23:00:22.932: Failed to read portal settings: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop was not provided by any .service files

When Firefox does launch, I am able to scroll with my touchpad in the first default tab that is loaded. Any pages I load after that, including new tabs, do not respond to touchpad scrolling at all, although they scroll fine with arrows/touchscreen/dragging and recognize other touchpad input. (same applies with launching new windows/private windows from within Firefox, the landing page scrolls and nothing else)

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and restarting my computer various times. I tried troubleshooting mode and clearing startup cache with no change.

I also receive this message in the terminal when I close the Firefox window, including when I had it restart itself in troubleshooting mode:

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

Thank you for any help!

For about a month, google products on firefox randomly stop working.

- I get the "Oops...error #001" in gmail, when i reload it just continues to get an error cycle until eventually it goes to network protocol error.

- Google search randomly does not work at all in the url/search bar, and once it doesn't work the tab is useless. Putting in another URL and hitting enter it appears to have loaded but of course nothing has changed.

- I have no extensions installed.
