Hello:

I must use the magnifier that came with Windows or I cannot read the screen. All was fine until Firefox updated. Now, when I try to use the magnifier, Firefox and all the sites I am using freeze. The entire screen fades out, and an hour glass shows up. But nothing happens after that. I have to go to the task manager and close Firefox, then start it up again.

I checked for Windows updates and everything is current. I am using Windows 10.

How can I fix this?

Using Windows 10 22H2 and Firefox 122.0.1 Yesterday I had no problem opening the map on purpleair.com. Today I can't. Get error:

Error: Failed to initialize WebGL

TypeError: DE is undefined.

But I can open this same website map in Google Chrome browser with no problem. What changed in Firefox and how do I fix it. And why do I need to fix it, since it all works fine in Chrome

Thanks a bunch,

Mike

In the last week or so, iPlayer, All4, and Spotify (that I know of) have stopped working in the Firefox browser. All4's error suggests DRM isn't enabled, the others just say try again. Roll20 hasn't been working for even longer (more like months). They work in Microsoft Edge and Chrome. Youtube is still working, as are video players in social media.

I have tried the following solutions:

  • Firefox is up to date
  • Windows is up to date
  • Updated graphics drivers
  • 'Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.' is set to 'Always Activated' and is up to date
  • 'Play DRM-controlled' content is ticked in about:preferences
  • Checked if anything changed if either of the above were turned off (it did not)
  • media.eme.enabled is set to true in about:config
  • Put Firefox in troubleshooting mode
  • Turned off my addons (including uBlock Origin) manually
  • Tried in a Private Browsing window
  • Turned off Tracking Protection
  • Restarted my laptop

Nothing has fixed the problem, or given me any more indication of what is wrong. I don't know how to a) fix or b) find the problem. All I can think is that it may be related to the recent changes to Chromium regarding ad-blockers? But no one else seems to be having the same problem so I doubt it.

Every time I attempt to do something login related (signing in, signing out, signing up) with any website that uses Cloudflare for DDoS protection I get stuck in a verification loop. It prompts me to check the checkbox saying 'I'm not a robot' and it displays the loading circles, but it prompts me to check it again. This cycle repeats seemingly forever. Wth is up Cloudflare?????

This happens to many websites that I use daily/on a frequent basis (Canva, ChatGPT/OpenAI, Perplexity). Strangely enough, when I tried it on another browser (Google Chrome) I did not have the verification loop. This is a REAL pain as

  1. The laptop I use is shared between multiple members of my family
  2. I do stuff that needs privacy

Doing it on chrome will reveal all the s*** I do to my family. And no, it's not like I'm watching p**n on my pc. I use these utilities for business work and I'm concerned it may leak out to my kids.

One reason I suspect it's happening is likely due to my increased cursor speed (I set it to full), but then why isn't it happening on Chrome?

Here are the extensions I have installed:

  • AdBlock Plus
  • User-Agent Switcher
  • Disable Javascript
  • Privacy Pass

Since yesterday I can't access multiple websites like Spotify, Reddit, Google Drive etc on my desktop computer anymore. I don't know why and I didn't change anything over night. It also works fine in Microsoft Edge.

Reddit shows the "whoa there, pardner" error, spotify shows 403 error, Google Drive says my browser (Firefox 120.0) isn't supported and others are simply unavailable. At the same time Google looks off and Twitch is just a huge loading screen.

I cleared all the data (cookies/cache), but that didn't help.

I had this reddit error a few weeks ago already, but it disappeared on its own. However it was only reddit that was affected.

Starting today I am finding it extremely hard to login to some websites. All Firefox does is just sit with a spinning circle after entering a user name and it locks up the browser to a point the I have to go to the Task Manager to stop the FireFox process. I have restarted my computer and refreshed FireFox. I have scanned my computer for malware using Norton 360, Malwarebytes, MSERT, and Windows Defender and all negative. I am having no trouble signing in to a site like https://my.account.sony.com using Edge but using FireFox now is impossible. This needs to be fixed.

I just started using Firefox today and I'm migrating everything from google. I've found that Pinterest seems to be entirely broken? I'm using quite a few plug-ins recommended to me, I'm not sure if one of them is the root of all this or what, but when I try to use Pinterest, I can't scroll on the explore page, or save new pins, or see anything on my account (it's just blank) or do anything that Pinterest exists for. Help

I attached some screenshots. On the explore page it won't load any further when I scroll. The second screenshot is my account and how it never loads and stays blank. Third is what happens if I click on an image in explore (no more load, can't save the image to a board, can't do anything). I also added a screenshot of every extension I have for reference, in case it turns out it's one of the extensions causing this?

Thanks for your time :(

For a few months now, on different sites, the backround is fully black on black text and I can't use it at all, so I have to enter on Chrome to use it. I tried reseting the cache and booting in safe mode, but it doesn't seem to work. I changed things like themes and made the site be able to choose its own, but nothing seems to work. One option I found online but I'm not to happy to try is to make another profile, but I have all my passwords and bookmarks on this profile.

(This issue has been happening for several months, perhaps even a year or more)

My issue's example is me trying to log in to Duolingo. When I try to log in with google, a popup appears where I select which google account to use, the popup closes, and then the sign in button loads perpetually. I left it to load for over an hour and nothing happened.

I tried the same thing with Microsoft Edge and I could log in with google perfectly fine.

This has happened to me on other websites too, but the issue is worse with Duolingo because if you have a google account associated with Duolingo, it requires you to log in with google. I can't use my password to log in, so I can't use Duolingo on Firefox

The problem is : Some of the time FF just records 0 bytes file and says nothing. I suspect that FF inspect the URL of the links and discard ( perhaps for security reason ) ones that do not begin with HTTP.

The bypass is : One has to copy the link and insert in in the new page of FF.

The solution would be to change FF code.

Thank you.

Hi all. I am having a strange issue with Discord. I can get notification sounds and all other media plays fine there. But whenever I try to "speak comment" or set the settings to always speak comments, nothing happens. The tab shows "playing", but no audio comes out, and nothing shows coming through on the mixer.

Chrome does speak as expected. A different computer, same version of Firefox also does speak as expected (in a different voice though). So that narrows it down to something in this particular copy of Firefox that is causing the problem. Plugins, settings and extensions on the two computers look the same. Also tried a different audio interface. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know!

Specs: Windows 10, Firefox 91.0 32 bit (both computers)
