Since the update to version 93, I have noticed a couple of issues. At times a tab may freeze, other times the entire thing will freeze. The other issue I seen is occasionally the screen will flash white and the return back to normal. This happens with no particular pattern and I usually have 4-5 tabs open at a time

Has anyone had these issues and any suggestions appreciated ? Thanks

I'm no longer able to play any kind of video in Firefox. Regardless of source - Netflix, Youtube, clips on twitter, whatever - I just get the loading circle.

All videos I've tried have been totally fine in Chrome and Edge, so it's not the source or the internet correction.

I've tried: - Running Firefox in safe mode (without extensions) - Clearing browser cache - Refreshing Firefox - Reinstalling Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration

Any further suggestions? Firefox 93.0 on Windows 10 Enterprise, for the record.

Hi, my problem is straightforward, after it syncs my data videos stop working. What I tried at first when the problem appeared was clearing cookies, disabling add-ons, then creating a new profile, but I realized the problem only appeared after logging in, so I'm thinking maybe my synced data got corrupted somehow?

If so, what steps can I follow to tackle this problem?

Since Mozilla Firefox release 93.0 I can't watch any videos online. I have to uninstall and install 92.0 version to resolve the problem. I tried all the solutions I read online to fix the problem for the 93.0 version, but none of them works, the best solution for me is to downgrade to a lower version. What I can do to fix this problem permanently?

This problem started with an update a couple months ago. Each bar is about 4 pixels wide and appears only on the right, left, and bottom edges of the browser window. They persist when the window is full size or smaller, but disappear on f11. The bars are completely unresponsive. Clicking or resizing the window doesn't seem to work inside of them. Even though the top of the window has no visible bar, there is still an unresponsive region like the other three sides and approximately 4 pixels of empty space.

When it comes to color, the bars spend about 50 percent of the time as white and 50 percent as the same gray that Firefox's dark mode uses. I wasn't able to get a screenshot when the bars were gray, but I was able to screenshot the top right and left corners when the bars were white, which I have attached.

It appears as if there are buttons of some sort poking out on the top right and left corners. If I had to guess, the top right icon looks like the "x" button on a Windows 7 window, and the top left icon looks like the red dot in the uppermost corner of a macOS window. My machine has only ever run Windows 10, and Firefox is the only application that this problem occurs in.

Restarting, using troubleshooting mode, manually removing extensions and themes, messing around with compatibility settings, running as administrator, refreshing Firefox, and reinstalling Firefox have all been unsuccessful. It really is annoying to live with this bug.

Hello, I'm using Ubuntu 20.04, and the newest Firefox (i.e. 93.0). For a long time already I have very irritating issue: I have 2 profiles: Company (default) and Personal (secondary). Company profile is marked as default. Personal profile I'm using for my personal email account, youtube, facebook etc. The issue is that whenever I have opened 2 FF instances, with those 2 separate profiles, I never know in which instance of FF the link will open. It's soooooo frustrating. Mainly I'm opening links from company Slack or email, and I never know in which Firefox link will open. Is there any option to set it? I would except that all links will open in the default profile ("Company"). Br, Marek

This is the second time I am posting about this - I did what was recommended before, but after a few good weeks, its now way worse. For some reason my print settings change to HUGE so that when I print, unbeknownst to me (because the preview looks fine), only maybe 1/4 of the page prints on one page. Yesterday I had to clear the print settings (help, more troubleshooting, print, clear saved settings) several times. The first time it happened I was printing multiple photos and had 16 pages of unusable color printouts. Although I didn't change the print settings manually at all, this problem recurred multiple times after I cleared the settings and although everything was fine when I left work last night, it was back to HUGE for the first print outs this morning. It is a big waste of paper and ink and is very frustrating. I'd like to know what is causing it and if there is a permanent way to fix it.

Starting a few months ago, when I click on a link in a web page that would cause a PDF to be displayed, I get the dialog box asking me where I want to save the file. When I go into settings and change the way Firefox deals with PDF files, having it use Adobe Acrobat DC instead, the problem will be temporarily solved, but it returns shortly. (The particular setting which I have to continually reset is under the Settings/Applications and involves "content type" "Portable Document Format (PDF)(application/pdf)"

How can I make it so that I don't have to continually instruct Firefox to open rather than save PDF files?

Hi there Firefox team!

I'm experiencing a problem with Facebook's in-bedded messenger when I'm trying to send a voice clip to a friend. It doesn't allow the action and gives me the following error: You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone

The problem is that I did, both in browser and on-site, and I can make audio calls and video calls with microphone working on the messenger just fine. Only sending the voice clip doesn't work. I don't know why and whether the issue is with Firefox or with Facebook's code for Firefox, but the issue definitely is annoying.

I've also changed Firefox privacy controls from Strict to Standard, and that didn't help either.

If anyone knows what to do, please help. I love using Firefox, and it's been my default browser for like, decades, and I don't intend to leave it because of this one issue... it's just frustrating. And I've seen some people experiencing the same issue on the web.

I don't know. May the Lord bless you! :D

I have a VPN for work, some internal sites are inaccessible without this VPN. When I try to access them with the VPN turned off I legitimately get a 403. However, when I turn on the VPN firefox keeps showing 403 while other browsers work fine. This also works the other way around. When I turn off the VPN and try to go to one of the internal sites I don't get a 403 (as I should), instead firefox gets stuck at the page loading stage and nothing happens. There seems to be some kind of caching or optimization going on, but it's terribly interfering. Deleting cookies, caches, etc doesn't help at all. The only thing that helps in this situation is restarting firefox.

When streaming video or sound from any website i.e. YouTube, Netflix etc. my audio changes level automatically. I will start a video, the audio level will be set and when I pause and resume playing, especially multiple times in a row, the audio level will increase by itself every time i resume playing however not by increasing either the YouTube/streaming site's volume setting nor my Windows volume slider. If an episode on Netflix finishes and the next episode starts automatically, the volume will be much lower once playback resumes but again, no volume settings/sliders have changed. If I pause and play again, the volume goes up and if i pause and play multiple times it will gradually go back to the original level. I have removed application control of volume in Windows from Firefox and have tried searching for this issue but have yet to find a solution. Chrome does not have this issues on my same device. On rare occasions, the audio will automatically boost all the way up to maximum level and become distorted regardless of which audio device I'm using i.e. wireless headphones, external sound card, any other audio device. I then need to pause and un-pause a few times before it goes back to normal Please help!
