SUMMARY : I would like to disable all animations/twinkles/flickers/waves that indicate some elements inside a Web page are missing and are being loaded. I think all these "animations" make my computer lag.

Hello,

I would say that since Firefox 89, my browser has begun lagging like hell when it loaded some rich Web pages. And I have the impression it is worse with Firefox 107. When I'm saying Firefox lags, I mean it uses heavily my CPU (over 50%), and Firefox is almost unresponsive (for complex Web pages. For Wikipedia or Amazon, I don't have any trouble for example). I have to wait for Firefox to finish to load the full Web page and to display all elements before the usage of my CPU gets back to 1%. And it can take several minutes for some sites/pages.

The problem doesn't come from my connection. And the trouble doesn't come from sites I'm visiting because once all elements are loaded Firefox is responsive.

More precisely, for some sites, when I start loading the page, Firefox replaces missing (i.e not yet displayed/loaded) elements of the page with a rectangle of the same size of the element and each one of these rectangles are slightly flickering to inform me that AT THIS PLACE there is an element of the same size that is going to be displayed. When I'm saying "flickering" I could say it looks like a rectangle with a gradient of gray that is "waving" slowly. Sometimes it's a very light gray, sometimes a dark gray. It depends of the sites.

And all these kind of "animations" are killing my computer. And I would like to totally disable these animations/twinkles/flickers/waves. For example, would it be possible to replace the color gradient animation with a static pink color ?

I have a 10 years old laptop with iGPU (an Intel i5-2410M exactly) without discrete GPU. That doesn't help. I know. For me the trouble comes from there. But currently I can't afford buying a new laptop. I think all my drivers are up to date as my Ubuntu 20.04 is up to date.

WHAT I'VE TRIED WITHOUT SUCCESS 1. I removed ‘.mozilla’ folder in my profile (i.e the folder that contains all addons and customizations) 2. Firefox in Safe Mode 3. I disabled hardware acceleration 4. I've tried [Firefox uses too much memory or CPU resources]

I really would appreciate your help because now, surfing on some sites becomes a big pain and I'm becoming mad (LOL).

Thank you in advance :)

Firefox 10x.x will stop rendering pages without giving an error. MX Linux. Nothing showing up in dmesg Not detecting any pattern to when this major issue happens; simply opening a page from a search engine result in a tab might cause it. could run 20 tabs of Youtube often without issue. Issue will only allow one level on Menu to show (can't reach Browser Tools to troubleshoot), selecting a tab window usless wont not move. If issue happens in a video window the video will play but not update display. If I resize Firefox, its window will update frame by frame

Hi!

I'm using the browser on linux mint 21. It works fine as always but I have this minor and annoying problem with the click on links.

Every time I click on a link from an external application firefox open a new tab/window with but doesn't show me the browser. To do that I have to click a second time on the hyperlink and at this point firefox will appear with 2 identical tabs opened.

To avoid that I have to click once and search myself the browser window.

Firefox Promts to Save Password Multiple Times for Same Origin URL

Hello, I'm experiencing a issue with my web server specifically on Firefox, allow me to explain: 1. A user clicks a login button and receives a HTTP 401 response, which the user responds to by entering their credentials in the built-in Firefox browser popup then selecting "Sign In". 2. After authenticating successfully, "Save" is selected when Firefox prompts to save login information for this website. 3. User then navigates to a page outside of the origin/index (ex http://192.168.0.3/foo/bar.html, origin/index being http://192.168.0.3), to which they're prompted to save login information again. Issue here with the second save login prompt.

If in step 3 the user selects "Save" this issue goes away, however, more than one popup for saving user credentials is not a good look. Additionally, the save login popup in step 3 is filled out with bogus user credentials; blank username and "password" as the password.

If "Save" is selected in both steps 2 and 3, about:logins will show two entries: 1. 192.168.0.3 (REALM) 2. 192.168.0.3 Where entry 2 contains the bogus user credentials and entry 1 contains the correct user credentials. In entry 1, the REALM is set as the correct realm I send out during the digest authentication process (per digest auth specification).

During both instances of the save login popup, in the Firefox Browser Console the following is printed: LoginManagerPrompter: Couldn't process supplied URIString: http://192.168.0.3 LoginManagerPrompter.jsm:994:16

As I've mentioned this happens with Firefox and never in Google Chrome (Chrome only has 1 save login popup after the initial authentication).

Would someone be able to shed some light on this behavior? Why is Firefox saving a login with my REALM and another without? Is the failure in LoginManagerPrompter related?

Thank you.

Prior to the decision by Ubuntu to use a Snap to package Firefox, Firefox was routinely updated by APT. This was largely invisible to the user who merely had to authorize the update. However with SNAP there is now the annoying countdown that appears every day when I go into Firefox. I have not researched Snap vs Flatpak vs Aur vs ..., so I do not understand why Ubuntu does not update the Firefox SNAP in the backfround. Undoubtedly there are advantages to Canonical in using Snap, but they haven't sold those advantages to me!

Like a lot of people I spend a lot of my life with the browser open. Linux does not generally use proprietary apps for access to tools which use such apps on mobile devices, so using Twitter, or Youtube, or Reddit, or various Google tools, just uses tabs within the browser. This means to update the SNAP for Firefox I have to exit out of every application on my desktop, and then wait while the SNAP refresh runs in a terminal window, not even a GUI tool. Furthermore this is not just the time to apply the update, I also have to wait while 3MB of code is downloaded, because Ubuntu doesn't bother to preload the Snap update! Strangely Ubuntu 22.04 does not even automatically run a SNAP refresh during a reboot, when everything, including the SNAP daemon itself is shut down! One of the first things I had to do after upgrading to 22.04 was to apply a new snap of the daemon itself. Ubuntu does not provide a tool to shut down the snap daemon. You must open a terminal and kill the daemon.

Although I can tolerate the time it takes this update mechanism to run, I cannot tolerate the time it would take me to restore all of the activities that I had open within Firefox. At this moment, a typical day, I have eighteen tabs open in Firefox. Ubuntu demands that I shut down Firefox, which will discard all of that state information, sit around while it mindlessly loads and applies the SNAP that it could have done in the background, and then I have to restore those eighteen tabs.

So I open the terminal, enter "sudo killall firefox; sudo snap refresh". But then when I go back into Firefox it naturally wants to warn me that the previous session was terminated abnormally. I know that I killed it. The message Firefox chooses for this is misleading "Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." Instead of, for example "Firefox failed abnormally. Do you want to resume your previous pages?" Since I cannot easily avoid the Ubuntu implementation of SNAP for Firefox is there a Firefox configuration option that says "Yeah, I know Firefox crashed, but I would prefer not to be annoyed by a misleading message when I start it up again if there is a snapshot to recover from."

I access multiple sites under a single domain:

https://my.domain/site1 https://my.domain/site2

Each site has a login, and the same account name (e.g. 'me') is used for each site, but with different passwords. I must use the same account name for each site.

As far as I can tell, the password manager will always truncate the full site url to just the domain name when saving the passwords, so both sites are saved to the same entry.

The password entry edit function does not allow one to edit the URL associated with the site.

Is there a workaround for this? Thanks, Diab

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

I have entered the same CSS rules for both my regular Firefox Browser and Firefox Developer. It's all been good until a recent update on Firefox Developer. (This happened within the last 3 weeks.)

My only objective here is to maximize the vertical dimension of my screen. (Note that the Container icons to the right are also "pushed up." The one that looks like a clock and the drop-down arrow beside it.)

I can't make the tabs vertically shorter.

(Please find first attachment below)

When I press "Alt", the tabs are vertically covering around 1/2 of the menu bar (menu bar is hidden).

(Please find second attachment below)

Below is how my Firefox Browser looks like and what I am aiming for.

(Please find third attachment below)

Note that the horizontal line above the tabs (container color indicators) are now gone on Firefox Developer (after trying to fix this issue since yesterday).

My CSS rules:

/* Below: For tabs */

  1. #tabbrowser-tabs .tab-text {
font-size:14pt !important;

}

  1. #TabsToolbar {

height: 34px!important; }

.titlebar-button{ padding-block: 0px !important; }

  1. #urlbar-container, #search-container { padding-block: 0px !important; }

/* Below: Removal of containers' icons */

  1. #userContext-indicator {

display:none !important; }

/* Below: Test for FF Developer only */

root{
 --tab-block-margin: 0 !important;

}

TIA!
