I used to have Firefox set as the default application for opening a JPG when clicking on it with a Windows 7 desktop. Suddenly that no longer is the case. I've gone to Control Panel, "Associate a file type with a specific program," but it no longer offers Firefox as an option. I tried adding it as an option with "Change Program: Other Programs" which allows me to set up Google Chrome as the default for opening JPGs, but it won't allow me to set Firefox.

Was watching Netflix movie in full screen, suddenly screen changed to being able to see the web browser tabs and bottom taskbar of Windows after about 20 minutes of watching the movie. I pushed F11 on the keyboard, which took the movie back to full screen with no further issue. What could have caused it?

If the PC has been put in sleep mode, occasionally after wake-up Firefox uses initially 100 % CPU time and CPU usage remains exceptionally high. Making a new sleep/wake-up cycle (usually?) clears the situation. It may appear weird but it seems to be that the problem arises (mostly?) if the PC has been in sleep over midnight (i.e. 23:59:59 -> 00:00:00). It's not Firefox version specific, the problem has been around for a long time and over numerous Firefox version. (EliteBook 8540w, Windows 7)

I experienced something similar to this user (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1276847) in that for a few updates now I can't start Firefox after every automatic update, it gets me a busy cursor and I can't end it through Task Manager because the process keeps vanish-reappear-vanish.

Unlike that user though, I fixed this by following the method here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1174236) REPEATEDLY. During those repeated reinstall process, I received error messages like "missing mozglue.dll", "missing fir-(something)", "can't load xpcom", and etc. (Yes, I'm sorry I couldn't screenshot them for proof and better explanation purpose.)

So I'm wondering, why am I getting so many error messages like that? Is there a way to fix this, so hopefully I won't have to do the whole reinstall process(es) every time there is an update?

I'm running v73.0.1 64 bit on Windows 7 Home Edition. Ever since the latest Firefox upgrade I can't properly watch or listen to a YouTube video unless I just play one video in a single tab and do nothing else with my browser or computer, otherwise the video is choppy and crackles loudly in my speakers, it pauses, and crawls like my computer is out of memory resources. In fact, sometimes even watching a single YouTube video in a single tab with no other programs running or tabs open is problematic. Nothing on my computer has changed except Firefox; why can it no longer handle activity in multiple tabs or in conjunction with almost any other program running simultaneously? This was never an issue before and it's very agitating. Do I need to switch to another browsing platform to regain a smooth viewing experience?

Firefox "builds up" internet cache capacity to 1.0 GB fairly quick. I can easily delete it & do it about once a day. I go to about:config & change: browser.cache.disk.capacity from 1048576 to the default, which shows 256000 (kilobytes, I believe). I close Firefox & reopen. It goes back to the 1048576 KB every time. How can I "save" the default capacity? I believe that 1.0 GB is too large.

 I also notice that before I change the value, it is written in bold print & then change it to default, it is not in bold type.
 DOES ANYONE know the "answer" to my question????

Thank you

I have 74.0 (32-bit) on Windows 7, and certain js plugins are not working correctly anymore. I'm pretty sure this is a 32 bit problem only, as folks on other machines with 64 bit browsers don't seem to have the same problem. The site I'm having a problem with works okay on Chrome (32 bit), but not on Firefox.

This is a very recent problem, I'm pretty sure it has to do with the latest Firefox update for 32 bit.

The problem can be seen here: https://subs.humortimes.com/getpdf-sample.php

It's not just that website server though, it's the same on other servers.

The js pdf 'flip page' plugin is not able to display the file. It loads okay, but does not show. Getting these warning in the Inspector Console:

WebGL warning: clear: Framebuffer must be complete.
WebGL warning: drawArraysInstanced: Framebuffer must be complete.

Warning: Empty "FlateDecode" stream.

... and others.

The problem is the same on different servers, and on a Xampp local server. So, my question is: Is this a 32 bit Firefox problem only, as I suspect? And if so, what can be done about it?

Some of my add-ons were corrupted or become unavailable after 74.0.1 update, WHY??? I use a lot (indispensable to me!) the addon Save Page WE and now is not available despite it is listed and appear as active in addons list. Also, some addons started to behave weird, like Adguard which now show a annoying setup window on each new Firefox load. Also OneTab is not loading, the icon still in tool bar but it does nothing. Please, what happens? I know there are improves in each new update, but at what price??? Please stop that!

Isn't there a setting somewhere for toggling whether Firefox's window caption incorporates the current page's title? Labels on my shell taskbar seem to be more meaningless with it enabled. What if I intend to activate the Firefox window and immediately switch to a tab other than the one currently active? From this aspect you can see how Firefox really isn't streamlined for subconcious interoperation with other applications.

Please help. Thanks!
