I have turned off all the add-ons and anti-virus, but the problem persisted. Even, if I download the same file in Android platform form Firefox I get same error. However, the Chrome don't show this error, to download files from this site I have to switch to Chrome everytime, which is very annoying, what could be the possible cause of this? If any information about site is required, let me know I can share it using developer option in Firefox. I have attached the screensnips of pop-screen when I click on the download button in the website along with the troubleshoot information. Please, help me with this! Thank You! :-))

Hello, whenever I use the right click, the pop-up menu triggers but it immediately registers a left click. This behavior is VERY annoying since it means that I accidentally go to the previous page whenever I right click.

So far it only happens when right clicking on the web page itself, and only on Firefox.

Ever since my Firefox updated on my windows 10 I have been having a lot of problems. Very slow loading times, any video I watch (whether it is youtube, twitch, hulu, etc.) buffers constantly, and if i have even only 2 tabs open i get the message in the yellow bar saying a webpage is slowing down your browser. I have tried a few different things; virus scan, checking installed programs to make sure nothing thats not suppose to be there is there, running firefox with add-ons disabled to see if that helps (didnt change anything), and restarting firefox. So asking for help on this, any solutions or insights are very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

When I use Firefox 78 all requests are allowed. When I use FF 79, some (few) requests are blocked. Those requests break the page from loading properly. There are no messages in the console that suggest anything is being blocked. And the network tab just shows "blocked" on the request with no indication why it was blocked. I have not requested those URLs be blocked and the context menu has no "Unblock" option. Other requests that were slightly before and very similar looking were not blocked, some that come after and look similar are not blocked.

I have disabled all blocking features in Security & Privacy. Still blocked. (I don't think it was S&P blocking, there are no warnings etc.)

Otherwise, this an "out of the box" install with no changes made. Myself and a colleague are having the same problem with the same URLs being blocked. Other browsers, and earlier versions of FF are fine. Only FF 79 is experiencing the problem. I read the release notes, nothing stood out to me as a reason to block anything without an explanation.

(You won't be able to browse to our Jira, we 403 any requests from the internet. And these resources causing the problem are only needed after you login.)

Any suggestions on how to work out why those specific requests are blocked??

I am having problems while trying to watch YouTube with the Firefox browser. I keep getting as yellow bar at the top of the page when trying to do anything on YouTube. A screenshot of the error is attached. I've asked Mozilla about this before, and I am also trying to get a fix from Dashlane. It concerns the message "a script in the extension Dashlane is causing Firefox to slow down" then it shows Learn more. When I open that if the warning stays long enough to click on it. It recommends changing dom.max_script_run_time. It shows it is set at 10, and will not allow any change as suggested. Then it suggests adding JavaScript toggle on and off. That does not help either. I would thank anybody between Mozilla and Dashlane that can provide a reason for this continued error message and how to fix it. This has been going on for months.

After update to 79.0 version, (on Win 7), the cursor totally disappear, an so it's really unconfotable to identify what I'm doing... Now it's possible to identify the cursor position only selecting some caracter, using mouse or case key + arrow. I tried to find some question on the web, and founded to set something in the "about:config" system, but in my list, for example, don't appear the "ui.caretWidth" row. I saw this problem appeared in 2017 too. (It appear NOW, for me...) I don't think to be the last person to use win 7... Can someone helps me?

Ever since I started using Firefox I've found that if I Google a subject and then try to open a resulting listesd website which is marked as an "Ad", it won't open and I get a "Server Not Found" message. I like Firefox a lot but this is plain irritating!

On the Help pages I found a suggestion about changing the proxy setting to "No Proxy" (I'm just an individual at home, running through a standard BT hub), but that doesn't seem to have made any difference.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

Firefox "suspends" UI/DOM updates when its window is in the background or loses focus?

I'm working to support a user who uses Firefox 79 on macOS 10.15.

Throughout the day, this user has to run a long-running Python script that uses the selenium module and geckodriver to have Firefox automatically interact with some ancient web based accounting software.

This approach is out of my control, I did not implement it, and being a very small company, there's no budget to change it or buy new hardware. It is what it is.

We also can't run in any sort of a headless mode, as the user must sometimes manually interact with this ancient accounting web site in rare cases.

The script itself works fine, as long as Firefox's window retains focus or stays in the foreground the whole time. It can run successfully for days like this.

The problem happens when Firefox ends up becoming a background window while the Selenium script is still running.

This happens often, as the user usually also has other stuff that needs to be done on this computer.

When in the background, Firefox and the Selenium script will work fine for some time. But then it's like Firefox suspends itself.

The Selenium script can still communicate with Firefox, but it's like Firefox has stopped updating the UI or the DOM for some reason.

This can cause the Selenium script to fail, as it can't find elements that it expects to be present in the DOM.

If the Firefox window is brought to the foreground again, it shows an outdated page rendering and the cursor is a "+" cross shape. Clicking within the Firefox window, for example, seems to refresh the UI, and it'll show the correct, current page after a few seconds.

Does Firefox do something to suspend tabs or windows that no longer have focus or are no longer in the foreground?

If it does, is there some way to easily disable this?

I can understand something like that being useful to save energy on laptops, for example, but in our case it's destroying Firefox's usability for this long-running Selenium job.

Many thanks!
