Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-7614-generic.

I run a variety of addons, but the only ones that should even be touching YouTube in any way would be Noscript, Ublock Origin, YouTube HD, HTTPS Everywhere. In the past with my current configuration none of these have given me any issues with playback.

I don't have any idea why, this is a problem I experienced a long time ago and now newly the other day for seemingly no good reason, videos on YouTube but also the web in general will not play until I open Firefox, close the browser, open it again, and then try and do whatever it was I'm trying to do. While not a fatal issue, this is one that is extremely annoying and I really don't feel like putting up with it.

Anyone have any advice or information?

Hi. I Have a Dell Latitude E6430ATG and I am running Windows 10 and I loaded a 2016 version of MS Office and suddenly Firefox shows no pages -- everything is white except for the address bar and, when I try to open any web pages, tabs at the top of the page. Any web page (as supposedly indicated in the address bar) is completely blank -- just white space. The "Open Application Menu" button is there and I get the drop down menu, but the only things I can access are Bookmarks, History, More Tools and Help. Cannot access Passwords or Add-ons and themes. I did a Malwarebytes search and found no problems. I uninstalled everything (Firefox and Mozilla Maintenance Service), deleted both files/folders, and, using MS Edge (which does load all web pages), downloaded a new Firefox Installer and, supposedly, Firefox went through the installation process and said it was installed. I clicked on the con on my desktop and Firefox open with same result -- address bar and (once I type in or select a suggested web address) tabs at top, but no web pages load and Open Application Menu only gives me access to Bookmarks, History, More Tools and Help. I am stumped. Is there anything in Windows I need to disable/enable to get my example of Firefox to work? If you need more info to suggest solutions, just ask. I am no tech wizard, so please be patient. Thanks.

Firefox needs a limit on memory usage. I was developing a tiny web page on Linux (PopOS) and accidentally created an endless loop in Javascript that ate memory (by growing an array). My entire OS became inoperable and had to be hard-rebooted. I was surprised this could happen due to Javascript (a sandboxed browser language), running in a web page (a sandboxed app) running in a Firefox browser that is supposed to protect users from the world wild web. One errant line of legal Javascript in HTML should not equate to a denial-of-service attack.

A sensible approach would be similar to the nice warning given when a script takes too much CPU, offering the user the choice to continue or stop the script when a tab exceeds some reasonable size: a fixed MB size, or say 10% of real RAM memory.

Ideally there should also be some hard limit calculated by Firefox according to the machine's available memory and Firefox's reasonable percentage of it. For example, maybe limit Firefox (all tabs combined) to 50% or maybe 75% of real memory, so that the O/S has a reasonable chance to remain operational so that a bad tab can be closed. Otherwise, Firefox could cause the O/S to lock up, resulting in data loss if there are tabs or other apps outside of Firefox that have unsaved changes.

Thanks for your consideration!

Somewhere between firefox developer edition 80 and firefox developer edition 94 a bug was introduced that results in firefox showing a huge list of possible public domains for an email address that i'm trying to enter.

Firefox should only show values I've entered previously. Instead it shows garbage such as gmail and yahoo as shown in the picture.

How do I wipe the list that it's using so that it never happens again?

Hey!

As the subject implies, my Firefox Application and associated applications on Windows 10 don't open at all. When I click on the shortcut, or open it directly through file explorer as administrator, for a single moment it shows a blank window with a blank application on the taskbar open and immediately closes it. It does not bring up a crash report following this. I have tried everything from restarting my PC, to removing every Firefox file on my PC and reinstalling Firefox, to trying Safe Mode, updating Windows 10 and drivers, and virus scans. Nothing has worked.

Is there any form of fix for this? It would be well appreciated!

Hello,

I wrote in about an hour ago, but clicking Submit resulted in a blank page - no acknowledgement or notice from you in email since. Pls forgive if you get this twice.

I was clearing Recent History when FF crashed and lost many important open tabs. This happened with V. 93.

I back up daily with Time Machine. I'm wondering if there's a file in Application Support or elsewhere it can restore to bring the tabs back?

System profile attached.

Any help appreciated. Peter

Since some time I encounter on more and more sites that on loading, the home page is showed as expected, but only during a fraction of a second. After it a kind of light gray filter layer is added to the screen. It's possible to scroll down the page, but all buttons/links on it are disabled. Using Google Chrome previous described mistake does not occur. Instead a cookie popup appears and after accepting, the normal homepage appears. So it seems that some sites are freezing their home page by the gray overlay in order to force the user to accept/reject the cookies. But when Firefox skips the cookie popup you're always blocked. Do you see a solution for a user of sutch sites?
