Pictures are not rendering when I click on news links in Yahoo. I'm on a MacBook Pro, so I opened Safari browser to see if I had the same problem - I do not. Safari renders pictures... I also tried the fix I read about to go into blank:config, and double click on Domain.next_gen to make it false.... didn't work... what else can I try?

Thanks for any suggestions...

Hi

I have Firefox browser running on macOS Catalina, and I noticed that I do not get any desktop notifications (e.g. new Telegram messages) when I watch youtube or netflix on fullscreen. Is there a setting or extension I need in order to enable this?

I have tried this on all other browsers, and only Firefox has this issue.

I searched the forums, but was not able to find anyone who has encountered the same issue as me.

Thanks

Error message: E:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Local\Temp\xxxxx.xxx.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

I do want to mention upfront that this issue is also affecting Chrome and IE. It's not solely a Firefox issue, but I'm hoping someone here can help me anyways.

  • This happens for any filetype, from any source.
  • It started happening about a month ago.
  • Prior to that, I installed a new motherboard, RAM and processor. I'm fairly certain there was a period between these events in which it worked fine, but I am mentioning it just in case it's relevant.
  • If it's a small file and I try repeatedly, it sometimes will eventually download.
  • Even if a large file successfully starts downloading, it will eventually fail. It usually fails immediately though.
  • I sometimes have success downloading the same file in Chrome, but it also often fails. IE as well.

I have tried the following:

  • Used Refresh Firefox
  • Cleared download history
  • Changed download location
  • Reset browser.download values
  • Disabled firewalls and antivirus/spyware
  • Reinstalled Firefox using Run as Admin (first uninstalled previous version and deleted all program files that I could find, including profiles)
  • Cleared cookies and cache
  • Ran in safe mode
  • Verified Temp folder filepath was valid
  • Verified the PART file was created in that path -- it exists until I hit OK on the error message, then it disappears
  • Ran Firefox as admin

I think these are outdated methods I only found on non-official sources, but will mention them just in case:

  • I found some sources that said to delete Compreg.dat; I could not find this file in the place listed, nor could I find it with a search of the entire drive
  • Verified places.sqlite was not set to read-only
  • Removed read-only from entire profile folder and subfolders

In Options > Security: 'Block dangerous & deceptive content': true, 'Block dangerous downloads': false

Internet speed test: 58.96 Mbps download; 148.04 Mbps upload. No connection loss.

This problem is absolutely maddening. I'll be so grateful if anyone can help me out!! :( Thank you in advance, I know this was a long read!

I have been watching football on one or two Sky Sports websites through Virgin Media which redirects me to the Sky Sports log on which I do as a Virgin Media Customer. This has been running smoothly for well over a year. Suddenly it has stopped with the error message "Secure Connection Failed". I have tried adding Sky Sports to the allowed web-sites on my security (Kaspersky and Malwarebytes) and clearing the caches as instructed by Mozilla but to no avail. What do I need to do to enable me to continue watching Sky Sports on my laptop. I'm afraid Virgin Media support told me to go back to the shop from which I bought the laptop, now 3-4 years ago.

When I post links from Twitter, Instagram and Imgbb.com to a discussion forum that I belong to, the images are blocked when I am using Firefox for Windows. This is a very recent problem (just the past week or so). I have no problem seeing the images using Firefox for Android on my phone or Microsoft Edge.

I recall there being an update a week or so ago, so I am wondering if it has something to do with that. Did it change one of my settings?

Thank you,

Jodi

On a substantial portion of the pages I try to load I get the "The connection has timed out" page. Sometimes as many as 30% or more of the pages I try to load. I can't say this happens all the time, but I've noticed in a lot of cases there is no activity in that bottom status line about a site being contacted or some google ad page is loading or whatever Just nothing at all

I suspect my ISP (verizon DSL) has been restricting my bandwidth -- the situation wasn't this bad a few years ago When I called to ask about it, the call center agent said that I had signed up for a slow connection -- the only thing I signed up for was DSL -- and there was nothing she could do about it

I check www.dailylocal.com for old hometown news, but it's been timing out every time for a couple weeks I'm pretty sure that they're not a first-class operation, but I'm also wondering if Verizon could be keeping a blacklist of sites since some of these sites keep timing out while others sail through

I'm not at all asseting Fireforx is an issue The sites won't load with Edge either But I trust Firefox folks more than most others Any info you can provide, I'd appreciate I'd love to know how I can monitor real time the bandwidth Verizon is providing me

Thanks

Hi there!

I migrated to a new Computer (win 10 x64) where I installed firefox 78.0.1. But it keeps crashing whenever an "explorer" window is open within firefox. i.e. most of the time when a download is started and absolutely every time when I open an integrated explorer windows (e.g. when I try to export/import the bookmarks to html).

I already tried cleaning the installation (with built-in function) as well as deleting all add ons with no result. I even completely re-installed firefox (whilst deleting ALL firefox-data in the %appdata% directories. No result, it still crashes I then made a new "fresh" profile - still it crashes

BTW: there is never any "crash log" generated, it just stops working and firefox "disappears"

I already searched this database and found 2 similar problems, but one was solved by upgrading to windows 10 (which I already have) and one was solve by uninstalling a specific security software (which I don't have).

So I really don't know how to fix this - any ideas?

Thank you and kind regards

Following the latest firefox update ,Jan 2020 my browser has practically stopped. I have used firefox for many years and have had no issues whatsoever. I have not added any extensions etc. To firefox in at least a year, or changed my antivirus. I have read that there was a high security update/patch very recently which I believe can slow firefox down, but I cannot work with the current speed. It is so bad I have had to use Microsoft edge! Can anyone help to get me back onto firefox? Many thanks, Paul

Hi there,

Firefox has started crashing anytime I try to playback media with my Focusrite interface selected for playback. This issue has been ongoing for a few months. Any page like youtube, with video or media embedded causes a crash.

For reference, I'm using a Focusrite Red8pre on a Macbook Pro. The error does not occur when using the laptops speakers for playback.

Any help here would be appreciated.

Cheers, -Harry

After updating this morning (I'm not sure if firefox was upgraded at this point) and restarting my computer firefox now exhibits a strange behavior. Every page I open it automatically scrolls through every scroll bar on the page. Thankfully most pages have only the one, down. However, if I get on a page with lots of iframes it will automatically scroll through each one of them in turn as well as scroll to the bottom of the page. I can't seem to interrupt this process until it's completed. Once it's done I can scroll back to the top, or correct any horizontal/vertical iframes and continue on as normal.

I've followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems to no avail. I've opened firefox in windows as well and it doesn't seem to have this behavior. I've started in safe mode and it still does it. I manually turned off each plugin as well one by one and still, this problem persists.

For reference: Kernel version: 5.7.7-arch1-1 application.architecture: x86-64 application.buildid: 20200701193652 application.version: 78.0.1

After updating from 77 to 78.0.1, I've experienced a large number of tab crashes ("Gah. Your tab just crashed.") across multiple sites. No crash logs are available in about:crashes. I've tried:

  • Starting in safe mode
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • disabling security software (Webroot SecureAnywhere)
  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Making sure latest drivers and Windows updates are installed
  • Run Windows system file checker tool (no errors found)

I use Firefox with screen reading software, so it is possible the issue may be accessibility related. I've tested with JAWS and Windows Narrator and experience the tab crashes under both.

OS is Windows 10 Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.900)

Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

For years I've never been able to stream NBC Sports Gold on Firefox. Instead, the NBC Sports page gives this error:

Recent versions of Firefox do not support Adobe Flash with authenticated video streams. Please use an alternative browser.

I've contacted NBC Sports help and they say the issue is with Mozilla.

So, when will this be fixed? Or, how can I avoid this error in future, other than having to use another (lesser quality) browser?
