Hi! Some days ago I started experiencing problems to load Google service webpages. For example sometimes youtube tells that there is a connection problem, when loading gmail I get " has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired". When I use other browser I can access to that services with no problem. I am in linux, and I have tried disabling all the add-ons, starting in "safe-mode" and rebooting my computer. At the beginning everything works fine, but after some time starts failing. I have tried with different Firefox versions, and the problems persists.

I've only experienced this on Firefox, but while watching multiple videos/twitch streams, video playback becomes very choppy and laggy. Actually, firefox in its entirety becomes laggy. This is not a problem when using chrome/chromium, and my PC is more than powerful enough to handle this, with a rtx 2060 and an i5-10500. On chrome I've watched 4 streams on twitch at once with no issues, but on Firefox it starts becoming choppy with only 2 open. Anyone know how to fix this? I don't really want to use chrome anymore. I'm currently running Pop! OS 21.04, with Firefox version 89.0.2.

While trying to log into my Modem gateway I seem to have typed something into the field, and the dialog appeared asking if I wanted to update the password. My finger slipped and I accidentally told it to update, so it saved over the prior password (which I assume would have been the CORRECT password.) Now there's no way to log into my modem gateway manager. There's no recover password option. I don't want to reset the entire modem to factory settings, and thus have to set up all my network and account info from scratch. Isn't there a simple "view password history" option somewhere? It tells me WHEN the password was "updated" but I can't find a way to see WHAT the former saved password was. (Windows 10)

My firefox web browser. Everytime I open firefox web browser. Firefox opens old tabs that I save at the same time and automatically opens many strange websites without my knowledge. And my Kaspersky antivirus always turns on virus warnings for strange websites.

This seems to be just for Amazon at the moment, but this does not happen on other browsers like Google Chrome.

When I input my password, when I click "login", it changes my password to a long string of encrypted letters, numbers & symbols.

This is just annoying at this point, but, yeah. If anyone has a way to get around this, or disable it somehow, I would be very interested. Thank you!

As a realtor, I use a professional software at NavicaMLS.net. When doing a "map search" the map refuses to populate and show the map background. I have not changed any settings. It worked previously and today, it won't work. Cleared all cache. Shut down computer and unplugged for 15 minutes. Restarted computer (desktop Dell) and maps still will not populate. Software works fine in Chrome. I would much rather continue using Firefox. What can I do? Thanks in advance. - Craig -

Hi guys, when I open FB messenger and navigate to 1 of the chats whole Windows freezes. I can't even use ctrl+alt+del when that happens, my only option is to power of the device with power button and restart it. I tried disabling all the extensions and also tried incognito mode, but as soon as I open the tab it crashes again.

Issue is not reproducible on Chrome.

I can't get logs or check processes because whole Windows is frozen.

Any suggestions?

Please respond ASAP, as I need to be able to get into the account fairly regularly.

Hi There,

I am using Firefox after moving away from chromium based browsers and have noticed some odd behaviour from Firefox build 89.0.2 and would like some help if possible.

The issue is, when typing quickly and i must remove the entirety of my input, i will press CTRL + A to highlight all, and sometimes hit the backspace button quickly and it will only move the cursor to the far left and does not delete the selection.

This is not the only issue with combo shortcuts, i have realised that CTRL + C sometimes will not copy the selection and is causing minor annoyance with using this browser.

If could be user error, however, the same usage on other browsers/windows UI never has this problem, and i am strugling to find information about this online hence the post.

Any information would be greatly apreciated.

TIA Brad

To save space on my laptop screen I have turned off the bookmarks bar, and use a dropdown bookmarks menu.

This works fine, except there are four links at the top of the menu that I don't need. It's not a deal breaker, but if possible like to remove them or at least move them to the bottom of the list. Is that possible?
