First, thanks for eliminating your direct customer support leaving issues to the community aka "blind leading the blind"!

Your browser, which requires daily updates for some unknown reason , has disabled Java Script which means I can not access photos on websites such as Bring A Trailer which also has adopted its' f... you attitude by eliminating their support.

If you have an accurate fix for my version of Firefox (lord knows how to find it), please provide in straight forward English that those over 30 can understand.

So like my title says, I recently started noticed my computer is very slow, making very loud fan noises every 5 - 15 seconds and freezing when the fan becomes loud. I notice in task manager I am running 9-10 firefox processes which take up close to 100% memory, even though I am running 1 tab. I don't know if this a virus, or bug, but it is screwing my computer over. I have 8 GB Ram, and it shows 100% in memory sometimes from firefox, I think this is some virus, but I don't know how to get rid of it.

I'm trying to understand how AWS pulls a file from a client device after I post an upload request to AWS S3. HTML is asynchronous and I can't figure out how, after I post the file name and such, an upload is started.

I’m uploading images from a user’s device to a S3 bucket using a HTML form. Everything is working fine but I don’t understand how the S3 server can initiate an upload from a client browser after the form data (file name, signature, policy, etc.) has been posted to its URL. The image data is in a file on the client device and is not contained in the form, only the file name is there. Where in the process is the upload started and how does the S3 server tell the client browser to upload the image data?

Perhaps there’s more communication between the web server and browser during a post/response that I’m not aware of. Perhaps AWS and Firefox have a WebSocket open to perform the file upload?

Any insight would be appreciated.

When watching a video baught from Amazon in most cases audio and picture are not synchronous. Discrepanca seems to increase with watching time. The problem does not occur with Opera, Internet Explorer or Edge. Deleting browser cache and cookies does not help. Reducing the quality or rewind does not help. Internet quality/speed seems to be OK because it wors fine with other browsers. How can I fix this problem. I do not want to go to another browser because I am very happy with firefox.

I often need to print or download pdf presentation files from online sources which I used to do on Safari (I use imac) On Safari, the pdf presentation automatically rotates on the print page, so then I can use "save as PDF" on portrait and everything looks good. (then I just rotate the file to landscape on Preview or PDFexpert to read the presentation).

When I try to do the same on Firefox, on the print page, the presentation does not rotate and remain landscape. The problem is, when I choose landscape to print, then the presentation is not centered on the page and skewed to one side so I get much wider margin on one side.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I appreciate any advice or input!

I have the DuckDuckGo search engine as the only search engine in my list of search engines. There is a very annoying issue with the way Firefox handles searches.

When I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box two things can happen after hitting Enter to perform the search. If the cursor was positioned just below the search box where Change Search Settings button is located, after hitting Enter the the search defaults to the Options/Search page. This requires reloading my home page retyping my search query and ensure that the cursor isn't located over the Change Search Settings. Since the search engine textbox is located high up on the page instead of in the middle my cursor frequently ends up positioned over the Change Search Settings button. Since I am only using one search engine, it would be great if the Change Search Settings button could be disabled. Can This be done? I haven't been able to disable it with Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit).

Firefox not playing audio through default device

Running Firefox 83 (claims it's up to date) on Windows 10 Pro N.

Recently Firefox has decided to play the audio from the likes of Facebook videos and YouTube through the speakers, despite:

  1. the headphones being the default device
  2. restarting the computer
  3. Chrome and VLC media player both sending audio to the USB headphones.

I disabled the speakers, which did result in FF sending the audio through the USB headphones. But . . . when I re-enabled the speakers Firefox reverted to them. Mid-play of a video! This even though the default audio device was still the USB headphones.

I searched for guidance, but the mentions I have found related to posts going back several years (FF 36 anyone).

That other applications correctly recognise the appropriate audio device suggests strongly that it's a Firefox issue, rather than an OS issue.

I really would prefer to not have to manually disable the speakers. Previously everything would simply switch from headphones to speakers when I unplugged the headphones, and back again when I plugged the headphones back in. This is how it should be.

Not sure why this page deleted my question while trying to share data but I'll start again.

I'm getting Malwarebyte alerts from something in firefox.exe, it's called restoro. It's not a program that's in my control panel so I can't delete it. It was quarantined but seconds later it was trying again. I included an image of the last scan done Nov. 28. I've deleted firefox before but it came back when I installed again. Is it something that firefox is supposed to have or is it some trojan that's latched onto firefox?

When I try to dowload a file, i fails and create a 0 byte file. I tried with repository firefox, and download the tar.gz from dev version. Both fail. I deleted ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla to start fresh and the error persist. I can browse, open a PDF in integrated viewer, but I am unable to save it. Other browsers can download files to ~/Downloads without problems.

Any hint of how to debug (and/or solve) the problem is welcome.

Hi,

I'm a paranoid guy so i tend to investigate anything and everything weird that happens to me.

Yesterday, i was browsing a movie directory looking for a movie to watch outside of major platforms (Netflix). The site was full of ads and other crap, my AV was ringing the bells, blocking lots of potentially malicious links.

Suddenly, i got prompted by Windows Defender to allow firefox.exe to communicate on public networks too. Private networks were allowed already, but somehow it wanted access over public networks too.

It looked exactly like this : https://content.invisioncic.com/Mmalware/monthly_2018_03/image.png.2897f90ed89aa34691c24143e249ab12.png

I am wondering if i could've been exploited by some sort of 0-day, as FireFox security is weaker now, we might see more broad attacks on people.

How could this happen and why would FireFox suddenly want to add new incoming rule?

I have the latest version of FireFox for many days, haven't installed anything new or updated anything. It happened just like that. Also, i was calling with a friend via Messenger which uses WebRTC, but we've been calling like that for past week or so, so don't have a clue why did it happen now...

Should i be concerned?

Let me know, please.

Just recently I noticed that Firefox 83.0 is no longer retaining my viewer settings in YouTube. Specifically the theater mode and autoplay settings. I can set it to theater mode, and turn off autoplay, and the next time I start Firefox, they are back to their defaults (autoplay on, compact viewer). At first I thought it was a YouTube issue but have tried it on Chrome and Chromium and both browsers save my settings. I'm running ArcoLinux 5.9.10 with I3 WM on both my desktop and laptop. I have both reset and re-installed FF with no change.
