I am trying to log in to my bank which up until yesterday was fine. I can log in on Chrome. So when i try to long in to the bank on either of our computers it just puts a red circle with a line through. I have done nothing different to Firefox at all and it was fine until Sunday (yesterday). No messages come up just the cursor will not click on it... Any help appreciated

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

I have Firefox Version 94.0.2 (64 Bit) running on Windows 11. First, I noticed Firefox was running very slow. It loads up slow and webpages are loading super slow. I downloaded other Browsers and they are working just fine so this tells me there is an issue with Firefox. After a while, Firefox would randomly crash for no apparent reason, while loading a new webpage or installing an Extension. I have sent Feedback for every crash. I have closed all of the Tabs I can that I am not using on Firefox, cleared the Cache, Cookies & History, Restarted Firefox & my PC and everything I can think of. Now, I just started getting an Error Message at the top of Firefox that says this: Firefox is running out of disk space. Website contents may not display properly & it includes a link to read on how to optimize disk usage. I followed the Instructions in that Article and it did not help. I am at wits end. I am ready to Uninstall and Reinstall Firefox and see if that fixes the issue but I hate to lose all of my Extensions and ETC. Can someone please help me with this? Is there anything else I can do to speed Firefox up, stop the crashes and get rid of that error message?

as you can see in the screenshot it can move horizontally and exlusively in this one tab. its not because of reddit enc. suite addon and its not effected by ctrl+0.

I refreshed firefox and its still there on this one link and its driving me mad.

i used this https://github.com/black7375/Firefox-UI-Fix/tree/proton-style , but the things is only on that one subreddit. every other site and reddit/ subreddits post works properly.

i changed user.js and refreshed and it did not work.

i managed to screw the post up with my mouse and somehow dragging it, but i couldnt manage to replicate it as i was not looking at my monitor as that happened

id like to add when i try to block element the addon ublock origin doesnt see the white space, and its broken only on old reddit format but not when i turn old style reddit off. so im not sure whats wrong

A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)

Hi,

My firefox has been consuming lots of memory (and many CPU processes) for quite some time now.

I read that i can adjust the number of multiple content process, but somehow i am not seeing it inside about:preferences menu even after i checked 'Use hardware acceleration when available' option.

Do advise me on what should i do to improve my firefox speed?


Regards,

Frans

Hello,

When my VPN client Private Internet Access drops its connection to the VPN server, all the tabs I have open in Firefox say they have crashed. I can restore the pages by simply refreshing, but it didn't used to be like this. This doesn't happen if I turn off wifi or manually disconnect the VPN, only if the VPN drops the connection. Very strange.

My environment: - Mac Mini M1 2020 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD - MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 - PIA MacOS client 3.1.2 (build 06767) - Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit) -- ublock origin 1.39.0 -- greasemonkey 4.11

Hopefully you can reproduce and fix it.

Paypal's going through making me change my password, and I used the password generator for that. I guess something went wrong again, because it wants me to change my password yet again.

The problem with Firefox, is that when I hit Suggest Strong Password, all I get is the same one I already used. This is no help. Paypal says "The password has been used recently. Please try another one."

I expect it would generate a fresh one if I restarted Firefox, but that isn't always convenient, depending on what's loaded in other tabs, or in the process of downloading. So let's skip suggestions of restarting.

How do I get Firefox's password generator to generate a fresh password?

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

I HAVE downloaded Firefox, but just seem to have browser. I'm trying to use Firefox only for my search engine, but it's still Google search, although I Disabled Google, & Chrome!! My friend says he only uses Firefox - how?

I also get too many ads cutting me out of what I'm doing, & since then, my phone charges really slowly!!! I was hoping having Firefox would stop the ads.

I'm 77, & use PAYG phone mainly for texts, whatsapp, banking, & online shopping & Facebook. I also take photographs sometimes, but prefer my ipad for that. Mary

I asked about this in a previous thread and never got a response from the escalation group.

I use my computer all day and keep several tabs open for ongoing use.

This is an example of what I see regarding Firefox's memory use. I do not open and close tabs often enough to have this make sense.

Please help! I cannot afford to have so much of my available memory blocked.
