Just as the subject line says: everything was fine with 85.0 (or maybe it was 85.0.1, since I always install updates). 85.0.2 would not load any sites, but another browser did. I had to uninstall the update and re-install 85.0.

Is there a known issue that will be fixed soon? It's time-consuming to go through the uninstallation/reinstallation process and I'm afraid to say yes to the update until I know I won't have to keep doing this. Thanks.

Hello good people, so I have this problem. All my life I'm using Mozilla and this is the first time I can't fix something on my own.

In the picture, I share you can see that Mozilla is usage CPU and Power too. I have only two (2) tabs open (google and your site). Don't know why it's showing that are open X tabs and going crazy. I try everything on in the net. Remove all plugins, add-ons, try everything it says to do in the options, even reinstall Mozilla. The PC is free from virus.

Can you help?

Thank you for your time.

Hi,

Recently updated Firefox (85.0.2) without any problem.

Then this morning I tried to download an attachment from a friend's email. Up came a window - and it stuck in a rapid, flashing loop. I couldn't stop this, nor try anything else on Firefox. I had to force quit.

I then tried to log on to my bank. I located the website and selected the "log-on" button. Up came the log-on window - and it stuck in a rapid, flashing loop. I couldn't stop this, nor try anything else on Firefox. I had to force quit.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Gegs

Recently I installed Maya 8.0 on my Dell Desktop Optiplex 745 running windows 10 64bit. The installation was successful and it opened well. I noticed that each time I try to open the help file in Maya 8.0 with my Firefox browser, it tends to open but along the line it will not open beyond an empty page or window with the address path which looks right and a tab above the address path with a different version of Maya80 instead of Maya8.0 I don't know how Maya80 comes in, and this I suspect causing the help file not to fully open.

What can I do to change or remove the Maya80 tap to become Maya8.0

I have tried to upload the screenshot image of the address path and the tap image but I received an error message during the upload stating "Error Uploading Image"; Invalid or no image received.

Looking forward for your assistance on this issue. Thanks.

I find this very distracting and only occasionally useful. Is there a way of stopping all sites from searching while I type? Ebay used to have an option to turn this off but no longer as they continue to strip away the user's control on their deteriorating website, year by year. I was hoping I could block it in the browser, maybe with an extension if I can't do it in About:Config.

Every time there's an update to Firefox the icon on the taskbar disappears. In the taskbar on my Windows 10 computer it also shows a new number, next to "Firefox", when I hover over the icon, every time there's an update. Before today's update it was 23, now it's 24 when I pin it again, and nope, I haven't got 24 tabs open or anything else counting 24 going on here. Thought I'd hear if someone knew how to fix this issue? I've tried pinning it from the folder where the .exe is, and from the start menu, un/reinstalling, and also searching the web a lot for answers but seems like I'm the only one with this problem, and it's kind of hurting my workflow. Thanks in advance!

I have just installed Maya 8.0 on my Dell Optiplex 745 desktop running window 10 64bits. The app installed successfully and opened as well. Each time I try to open the help file in Maya 8. 0, it looks like the file is going to open, but will not open. I noticed that the address path of the file looks right, which is like this file:///C:/Program Files (x86)/Alias/Maya8.0/docs//Maya8.0....... while the tap on top of address path indicates Maya80 instead of Maya8.0 I don't know where the Maya80 comes in. What can I do to change the tap address from Maya80 to Maya8.0 Below is the attachment of the screen shot of the tap and address path.

At some (random) point Firefox starts comsuming CPU very intensive. I can't detect any circumstances why and when it happens. Just after some period of using it freezes for a couple of second and then becomes slow and starts using CPU. I reload it and everything works fine again.

I use recommended perfomance settings and Firefox Developer 86.0b9 (64-bit). Please let me know if I can provide any additional information to help to solve the issue.

Hello, I've had problems with videos on YouTube for several months. It mostly affects new videos (for about a week, although it's not a rule) - when launched, audio part plays fine, but the video part lags heavily and the recording stops usually after ~5 seconds. Any attempt to play a different part of recording (ie. going back to the beginning, or any other part of the video) results in permanent loading. I fixed the issue disabling hardware acceleration. But recently, I've started to have problems with screen tearing, in Firefox only. And I tried tweaking my graphics card, but turning VSYNC permanently on etc. didn't affect the problem. Then I turned hardware acceleration on.. and that solved it. But now I have to turn it off to watch any recent video on YouTube, or turn it off when I'm not watching YouTube, or I'm getting annoyed with screen tearing. Any solutions?

What can I do if Firefox freezes when my MacBook returns from sleep mode?

I recently bought a MacBook Pro with the new M1 chip. It runs macOS 11.2.1. Firefox runs with software version 85.0.2 (64-bit). I have now noticed that Firefox sometimes freezes when I wake up the MacBook from sleep mode after some time of inactivity. I can then no longer click on anything in Firefox (Nothing happens when I click). In order to use Firefox again, I have to quit it completely. This also causes me to lose all open tabs.

There are no recent reports under about:crashes. The most recent report is from 2019.

Hi Firefox Community,

About a month ago, I purchased a 2020 HP Pavilion Laptop. While using Firefox, the system audio periodically drops with no system acknowledgment (drivers don't know the sound dropped). This means that sound will not play in Firefox or in any other application on the PC. (The system also won't play test sounds through Control Panel) The moment I close all windows in Firefox, the audio to my system returns. Any chance this is a common issue? Does anyone know why my computer's sound unexpectedly drops from time to time? Any help is appreciated
