I have an online radio station called Decades Radio and listen to it on liveradio.ie these past few days its showing banwidth or buffering problems onj this site.. I have tried other browsers and they work just fine. Please see my attachment and notice the brown color bar going from left to right until it cuts out stopping and going... I have tried eveything I can think of deleting cookies, unistalling/reinstalling, etc and no progress. I have also had my radio server provider check this too and it shows same problem with them too. Please fix this bug in your firefox software Thanks Phil

This quite surprising that this issue has not been fixed in Firefox. I am unable to load a website in Firefox but I can in Chrome. Firefox shows an error, "Secure Connection Failed." This has happened before as well.

Why can't this be just fixed. Please find the screen shot attached for more information on the error message.

Below is more information: URL firefox failed to load: http://122.252.232.181/webcare/default.aspx Firefox version: 92.0 Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1 (OS build 19043.1237)

Have been experiencing frequent "Gah" tab closures and unexpected Firefox shutdowns lately which require "Restore Now" action. Am running latest version of Firefox on Win10 desktop which is updated religiously. Have run Task Manager which indicates no activity higher than a Medium rating. Interestingly, while I experienced a couple of tab closures this morning, they are predominately later in the day and on occasion I need to reboot the system to get Firefox operating. Hopefully there is a relatively simple fix for this issue. Thanks.

Hi,

I'm Windows user and Firefox stopped loading web pages one day. I tried to reinstall including %APPDATA% deletion but nothing helped. I also deleted the Mozilla directory in Program Files. No matter if I use default or no proxy.

I also tried to delete some Firefox items in Register with no success. I cannot disable the Windows Antivirus since it's a company laptop. Chrome and Edge work just fine.

Can you pls advise what could cause the issue?

Thank you.

Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?

I'm having a problem with a couple videos where the video and audio aren't in sync. For example, the video in the first screenshot is only 2:30, yet when I play it, it seems to partially mimic the video in the second screenshot; it "extends" to 2:41, and it plays the video from the second video. However, it plays the audio from the first video and the progress bar still only goes to 2:30, yet the video keeps playing for another 11 seconds without any audio until the video from the second video ends. Seeking forward causes the different recommendations to pop up as if the video had ended normally.

I am using a MSI laptop on Windows 10. I have restarted my computer, cleared my cookies and cache, and updated Firefox to the latest version. This problem persists with all of my extensions disabled, and when logged in or out of YouTube (no matter the account) or in incognito mode. At first, I thought it had something to do with the video and/or channel, since the other video with the same problem was also uploaded by AmericanDadVEVO. When I tried watching the video in the first screenshot on Microsoft Edge (which I barely use and have no extensions on), however, it worked normally.

Any help would be appreciated! I really do not want to switch to another browser.

Whenever I open a new page in firefox it automatically loads a page from the recent history in the new window. This is partly annoying because there is a delay waiting for it to load a page you don't want, but is also quite a big problem when it loads a page from the history that was a pop-up with a reduced size, and sometimes with settings that prevent you from changing the page address.

I don't know why it is doing this but it is unusable behaviour. I've tried restarting the computer (and firefox) but it is still doing it. This is version 92.0 for ubuntu.

Hi everybody! Until I used Windows 7 Ultimate I had no problem using Firefox on my PC. I've been forced to use Windows 10 and I've apdated both my desktop and my Laptop at the same time (one hour difference) - both run almost exactly the same programs with the exactly same structure (name of software, names of files and/or directories, cookies, extensions etc etc). My Laptop (HP EliteBook) has no problem whatsoever, while on the desktop firefox keeps crashing whenever I sitch on an external HD, or I start a program, or often when I play chess. It crashes also when I'm watching an You Tube clip, and I change clip.... The only time that Firefox doesn't crash is when it is alone, no programs are running in the background, and I explore the internet using the same window, and not opening any links in a new window. I have an idea of what may be the cause but I'm looking for someone who has my same issues in order to check causes. I must admit that I'm fed up, and I'm seriuosly considering to switch to chrome after having used Firefox since it was born.... Thank you, Marko

Hello there!

I noticed that pip play mode in Firefox is different to other browsers. In other browsers, once the pip window is opened, it remains open until user explicitly closes it. User is able to navigate away from the page containing the video and it will still remain open. In Firefox, once user navigates away from the video source, the pip window will close.

I'm working on a website which will include some tutorial windows on the home page. It would be useful for the user to be able to open the pip window and then navigate around the site to try out features described in the tutorial video. This is possible with other browsers, unfortunately on Firefox, once the user navigates away (even knowing that it's a SPA) and the video element is removed from the DOM, the browser will not keep the video stream open anymore.

Are there any plans to change this behaviour to match other browsers? Maybe there's an extra attribute that I could add to the video tag to preserve the pip window between navigation events? Maybe there's a temp hack (i.e. keeping the video tag in the DOM but hidden - for SPAs) or will I need to develop a custom media player to achieve this?
