Hi, I'm a student and I am not tech savvy. Not so literate about codes and customization, but I can understand and follow instructions for those who can help me.

I've recently move to firefox from chrome few days ago. And I noticed that when I'm uploading some of our video lectures in google drive / google classroom, it is very slow. So I tried using my laptop's microsoft edge browser, and it is 2-3x faster there.

What could be wrong?

I recently reloaded Windows 10 on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and reinstalled Firefox (V87.0, 64 bit). I've noticed now that web pages that have been opened will oftentimes not refresh after they have been open for a certain amount of time (TBD). As an example, if I edit an event in my Cozi Calandar page, the activity indicator will spin and spin and never comlete the change. I have to close the tab, open a new one, and load Cozi in that and then edit the event. Another indicator of this problem is that , when I open a new tab, the images associated with the Firefox Pocket recommended stories do not load (and I suspect the list of stories is not refreshed). If I close Firefox and restart it, that will sometimes resolve the problem, but not always. I have tried running Firefox in SafeMode, but that does not resolve the problem. I have also Refreshed my installation of Firefox.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz 4 Cores GPU - AMD Radeon R7 200 Series with 2gb.

Pls fix.

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

Hello, the problem with Firefox is that it loads the pages too slow, other browsers such as Chrome or Opera are working correctly. At first everything was fine but suddenly Firefox started to take forever to load the pages. I have completely uninstalled Firefox and installed it again but the problem persists. I thought it was a problem with some extension (I only use AdBlocker and HttpsEverywhere) but restarting it in safe mode the problem persists. I also have to mention that the Ubuntu installation is recent. What could be the problem?. I am using Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS.

I have been having trouble using the functions in Clickfunnels funnel builder. After spending about an hour on chat with a tech there I finally figured out that the problem did not occur with Chrome. Is there anything Firefox could do about this? I really don't like Chrome. Thanks, Steve

My current PC Firefox Browser (ver 87.0 (64 bit and up to date) has the following problem.

For example when I go to Yahoo.com and pick a news story, there is always a link.

I press link and nothing happens. All the pictures don't show up in link.

However, when I open a new Firefox Browser in a new tab or even in a Chrome browser it works.

What is the solution to fix this?

Thank you.

Firefox recently started freezing up on various websites. I thought the move to Rust was supposed to make Firefox more reliable, but in fact if one tab has problems with JavaScript, then the ENTIRE Firefox app freezes up.

Hi, For a couple weeks now, whenever Firefox is open, I can't control other software with the keyboard media keys. I had fixed the problem before by setting the flag media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false, which worked for a while. But now it doesn't. I also tried setting dom.media.mediasession.enabled to false, and all 4 combinatios of the 2 flags. Firefox keeps capturing media keys. Tried disabling every addon shortcut too, as some other webpage recommended.

Note that it happens even if there's nothing in firefox, ie 1 tab on the "home" screen. Close Firefox and Spotify starts responding. Open Firefox and it stops working.

Long story short... this is my first Mac (MacBook Pro 13-inch, M1, 2020). I noticed that there is a mini Firefox icon at the end of my dock before the "stack" downloads folder and trash icon. I was wondering if anyone else has the same issue. Restarting seems to help but comes back, removing Firefox from the dock also seems to help but once it's back in there it comes back after a while.

Raspberry Pi 4B Raspberry Pi OS -- Fully updated OS. Firefox 78.9.0esr (32-bit) -- Latest and greatest for Raspberry Pi OS.

Some videos I am getting no sound. I try the effected videos in Chromium for Raspberry Pi OS and it works fine. I read about a possible fix and tried disabling hardware acceleration with no effect. I also blew out all the cookies,. history and stored site data. Each attempt closing and reopening Firefox. Same thing on the same videos, no sound in Firefox but fine in Chromium.

Since a few months, I have noticed a nasty issue with pasting on some websites.

For example, when I try to paste text in the body with CTRL/CMD+V on the web interface of my email provider (mailbox.org), the cursor is moved to the end of the message but no text is copied. Right-click > paste does work, and no issue for the recipient and subject fields. The issue is only when writing emails in HTML; plain text works fine. Another example, when editing a protocol on protocols.io, hitting CTRL/CMD+V leads to a blank page, which needs to be refreshed (but the text has not been pasted). There is no option to do it via right-click > paste there. Same issue when submitting a manuscript on PCI Paleontology.

All these examples are specific to Firefox (I have the latest version installed); it is reproducible both on macOS 10.15 and Win10. It doesn't seem to be due to add-ons (I tried to deactivate them one by one and nothing changed). There is no problem with Chrome-based browsers (e.g. Iridium) or Safari.

Is it maybe some configuration or something? Any idea?

I have noticed a recently developing event in Firefox. When scrolling through some pages such as LinkedIn or Facebook, my screen will suddenly go completely white. It seems to freeze for a second or two, then comes back. This has only been happening for about the past two or three weeks, so since about 1 April 2021 for time reference. My About Firefox shows I am running 87.0 (64-bit) and it is up to date. I completely uninstalled - including the deletion of the Mozilla folders per info on the web - then reinstalled. This did not correct the issue. I also run Chrome and do not experience this issue when using it.
