Dualsense Gamepad suddenly not working correctly.

A little while ago I noticed that the site I used to test my gamepads (hardwaretester.com/gamepad, formerly known as gamepad-tester.com) stopped working properly. I just assumed this was either something outside of the browser or the website itself was broken. Today I just tested with several other websites and browsers and confirmed that Firefox seems to be the issue. Even in Troubleshooting Mode it was completely broken.

L1, R1, R2, Triangle, Share, Options and the Left Stick seem to be the only things that function properly currently, with the DPad not doing anything and the rest of the face buttons/triggers hitting the wrong buttons. In the case of the right stick, L2 for some reason controls the vertical movement while the physical right stick still works horizontally. This controller works perfectly on the rest of my system, windows sees the proper buttons being pressed and games that support Dualsense work fine without any interference.

Below I have attached two images which show how the website I mentioned used to look, and the second image is how it looks now. I have a feeling some kind of update to Firefox's Gamepad API has broken this, somehow.

I'm on Windows 11 Pro 23H2. This is a pristine installation, downloaded from mozilla.org, default settings, no add-ons. - Firefox 126.0.1. - There are no cookies, history or cache to clean, since it's a fresh installation. - Connection settings is set default to "Use system proxy settings", although I've also tried setting it up to "No proxy", then restarting Firefox completely, then trying again with a new domain. No change. - DNS over HTTPS is set default to "Default protection". I've also set it to "Off", then restarting Firefox completely, then trying again with a new domain. No change.

I don't what else to try and I don't know what's wrong with Mozilla Firefox.

Can you help?

about:restartrequired Restart to Keep Using Firefox An update to Firefox started in the background. You’ll need to restart to finish the update. Your windows and tabs will be quickly restored, but private ones will not.

For months, Firefox will not load pages, like for google for instance. I will press Enter to load the page and it just won't do anything. Sometimes quitting and restarting fixes the issue, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't my internet, as I often have to open Safari to load the page instead, which always works.

I just did a refresh of Firefox, but the issue persists. It's getting to the point of potentially switching browsers. It's frustrating to have to switch browsers if I need a page to load.

For the last month or so I'm constantly having issues with messaging on Facebook and with playback on Youtube.

On Facebook my messages are often not sending (I sometimes get a red "couldn't send message" tag under the message(s) I've tried to send; other times whatever I've tried to send just disappears without trace); also often my chats do not show up properly and they also don't sync properly with messages on my android phone. (Both my Firefox and my Messenger app are up to date.)

On Youtube I get issues with video playback (I have a premium account on Youtube): the videos sometimes randomly stop mid-playback and they either continue after 5-10 seconds or they just never continue at all. If the video quality is set higher than 1080p this happens more often. Other times the image freezes, but the audio keeps going. When I've watched a video and I press replay/play again, the video and the audio are delayed. I have an 11th gen i5 processor with 16 GB RAM and 250/25 Gb/s internet connection. To my knowledge all drivers are up to date. I've been chatting with Youtube support and they were adamant that I need to change to Chrome browser because this is Firefox's fault...

Also, when I use Facebook or Youtube, Firefox consumes a TON of resources (almost all resources) and makes my laptop run hot.

The only thing I can think of that might be an issue from my side is that I have many (and I mean many) tabs open in Firefox. But even after cleaning all history/cache and restarting Firefox and going straight to Facebook/Youtube, without touching any other tabs, I still have the issues with both - the two pages I use most. It's getting very tiring & annoying.

I'm using AdBlock Plus, but for Youtube it is disabled. (Youtube support wanted me to uninstall it... surprise, surprise...)

I hope you can help me find a way to fix this. Thank you

Windows 10; Firefox 126.0.1; DuckDuckGo search engine:

Drop-down suggestions a clever function, but entirely unwelcome in my universe. How to prohibit those?

The problem in DuckDuckGo search is that one cannot readily edit the original search word/phrase, as the suggestions take over that area; can't do a quick LnUp or LnDn, can't do a quick LeftArrow or RightArrow if a correction is needed -- the suggestions just decide to bully their way in at every inopportune opportunity.

I've changed whatever settings in Duckville that I can find, but it doesn't care what I need or think. I've changed the Firefox Search settings but that doesn't make any difference.

Any information/assistance out there?

Many thanks. Appreciated.

Started a few days ago.

Facebook, from bookmarks or freshly typed, does not like my password. States "password entered is incorrect".

This appears to be the Windows version only (126.0.1(64-bit)), as I can login from other, android, devices. Have not tried from a Linux version as none are current.

I have checked and FF does have the same credentials on each device tried. Attempting to reset password from the Windows version will tell me "something has gone wrong".

Cute, eh?

Hello,

My password saved are deleted every time I close FF. It used to be manageable because Google and other sites didn't require me to fill my passwords (cookies did the trick I suppose) but now I also loose access to gmail and Youtube every time I close FF. It's annoying to have to use 2FA every damn time. And keeping the passwords available.

I've tried every answer I found by looking around :

- tried to start in safe mode - disable hardware acceleration - I have no extensions

FF saves the passwords correctly (at least they appear in the saved password tab) but they are erased every time I restart FF. The cookies aren't automatically deleted (FF remembers my browsing history) but I need to relog into Google.

I getting frustrated.

I keep getting prompted to sign into my Firefox account, but when I type my password and hit enter, the prompt clears out my password and nothing happens. I'm already logged in to post this question, so I'm confused as to why I keep getting prompted.

I've tried:

  1. Numbered list item Removing the account, but the same unresponsive password prompt shows up
  2. Numbered list item Reinstalling, but same issue
  3. Numbered list item Resetting password, but same issue

Potentially related: I am successfully logged into my Firefox account on another laptop, and I'm seeing no prompts there. Any ideas what else to try?

Suddenly my Firefox cannot open saved .htm/.html files on my pc but Edge can. I don't know when this happened but probably during the last month or so. When I try to open a saved .htm or .html file Win10 gives me a "Windows cannot find (path and file name)" error. If I "OPEN WITH" Edge it works just fine. I've checked my default apps and file type associations and they are all properly set to Firefox. I did a RESTART in Firefox but that was no help. Is this actually a Windows problem, or do I need to do a complete uninstall and reinstall of Firefox? Currently running Win10 (64-bit) and Firefox 126.0.1 (64-bit).

i formatted my computer, and used last session .Json files to restore my tabs from before. this allowed me to have my tabs. but even weeks after reinstalling, Firefox does something uncharacteristic. it opens with one window with one tab. then after a second or two, it closes. and then reopens with all the tabs. I would consider a re-install but i don't want to lose the tabs again, and i have 2 computers with different tab sessions (different users on the reformatted one as its a family computer)

its functional but annoying. What can i do?

i would include screenshots but you can't really screen grab a PROCESS, so that doesn't help here.

i am running windows 10.
