When logging in to the online bank at DNB with Bankid, this error appears:

"A communication error has occurred. We are experiencing a communication error between your browser and the user site. The reason may be slow internet or problems with your browser. Try again in a little while. You can also try to delete cookies and browser data in your browser or try a different browser. Error code BID-5000 Reference DXP4VKOE Date 12/06/2024"

No other browsers show this error. I've tried Edge, Chrome, Vivaldi, Brave, CC Cleaner. The error starts after version 125.0.3. Today a new version 127.0 arrived. The same error appears.

I have uninstalled the latest version and reinstalled version 125.0.3. Then no error message appears. To your info, I've tried also on other PC's and the same Firefox version, and the same errormessage appear.

I look forward to you having a solution to the problem, otherwise I will have to use browsers that do not show this error. As I prefer Firefox, I don't want to use other browsers. But if the bug can't be identified and fixed in newer versions, I'm not happy with firefox and will use other browsers..

Hi,

I use ClassicPress (fork of WordPress) and I have a problem when requesting a password reset link for it.

When opening the email received to reset password in the firefox dev edition browser and click the reset link I receive an error stating that the link is invalid.

I discovered by trial and error that copying the same link and pasting it manually in a new tab of the same firefox dev edition browser solves the issue because then the link is recognised as valid.

This happened after the update I received last week.

I am a linux mint user if that helps in tracking down the issue.

Hi I recently upgraded to win 11 and was so happy that god listened to me and you've added PIP to your browser!!!!!! but I have few problems.... most of them I fixed on my own... I have the latest release and I'm using for now the developer edition. I used the regular too but I thought that the developer edition will be more stable. and its not... I needed to buy a new graphics card GTX 4060 OC 8GB just so I can see all the streams smooth without lagging I needed to upgrade to 24GB (I had 12) memory so Firefox will not crash my computer all the time. your memory consumption problem is ridicules!!! :(((( added a screen shot I have i7 4 cores. i ordered Intel XEON X5675 6 cores it should arrive in a few days just so it will be more stable. 1.from time to time it still crashes (submitted my crash report just now) its closing streams and i don't know why. is it Firefox? is it the stream website? is it my computer?? how can i pinpoint the problem?? 2. I'm seeing multiple live streams usually 6 or more with PIP , I'm organizing the layouts so that I can see them all together. I've sent you a screen shot. for some reason the streams windows keeps centering themself to the borders of the actual screen its driving me nuts. like it has a mind of its own. I keep moving it beyond the border so i can see al the streams but after a minute or two it keeps moving back to the actual screen border. sometimes it doesn't move. its like AI is controlling when it moves and when it stays. is there a way that a computer program!! will listen to my command instead of having a mind of its own and moving my stuff to where he wants too?? is there a fix to it???

Good Morning. I have been using Firefox for 20+ years. Last night it did an update overnight, and this morning I am getting "The Page Isn't Redirecting Properly" error message on my business CRM site. This appears to be the only site having an issue. I have never had this error previously.

I tried all suggestions already including clearing cache/cookies, checking settings, delete history, troubleshoot mode and nothing. The site opens fine on Chrome and MS Edge.

Any additional help is appreciated, this is very frustrating.

Thank you.

Whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube, Firefox would automatically set the playback speed to max, mute the audio, and the video would just end (as if someone moved the seek pointer to the end). Since my YouTube is set to automatically play the next video, I would be presented with a screen showing me what the next video would be playing. At this point, I need to do the following:

  1. quickly click cancel
  2. hit the replay button
  3. set the playback speed to anything but normal
  4. set playback speed to normal
  5. unmute audio
  6. move seek pointer back to beginning

From this point on, videos would play normally and I can jump around and watch different videos. But once I close Firefox and restart it, it would reset to the above issues (max playback speed, mute audio, skip first video).

Anyone else having the same problem? Anyone know what's going on?

On a tangent, on my Windows machine, every now and then, Firefox would flash a white blank screen. I would be surfing and reading stuff and all of a sudden, the screen would just go blank. After a few seconds, it would come back. This only happens on my Windows machine and not my Mac.

Hey,

I constantly have unreadable fonts in Firefox for Mac. This only happens since I started using a new Mac (M2 Chip).

I know there are some "solutions" flagged but I cannot get it to work. My main issue is, the inspector it self has completely garbled fonts. So does the elements of the browser itself, for instance my favorites bar.

I know I am supposed to check my fonts, but I don't know how? I used the fonts application on my mac and let it validate the fonts. No issue there.

Only thing to resolve this issue is to reboot. And this is extremely frustrating since it means out of the blue my Firefox won't show fonts and I have to save all my work and reboot to be able to use it again.

I would highly appreciate a step by step solution on how to fix this. It seems to be a common problem so maybe there is a solutions that describes it better than the text I found here to inspect elements and check fonts.

Thanks in advance.

Hey everyone,

When I opened firefox this morning, I was notified of the update 127.0 update. I have auto-update enabled. Since the update, my browser experience has reverted back to 1999, where opening a tab is slow to a crawl, scrolling on (for example) facebook is delayed, and youtube videos keep buffering.

Note: I have a beast PC with 36GB RAM, and a 1000W PSU, yet in my task manager it stays as using almost 4GB of RAM and "Very high" power usage.

I've updated drivers, tried the "firefox safe mode" which had the same issues, and confirmed that this doesn't impact any other of my internet-based activities (like gaming and discord).

I've also run a malware check (deep scan) and found nada.

Lastly, I've tried ye-olde 'turn it off and on again'.

Nothing has helped. Any suggestions? I'd love it firefox had a revert update feature but it does not, which is a huge bummer. Please gimme a hand, 'cause I hate Chrome, which is working just fine.

For a while now, I've been having recurring issues with Firefox desktop freezing and becoming totally unresponsive. If there's any pattern to what causes it, I haven't been able to notice it; sometimes it happens as soon as I open the browser, sometimes it happens after several hours, sometimes it happens twice in ten minutes, sometimes it happens twice in a few hours (however, I can count the number of days it's happened less than twice in one day in the past few weeks on the fingers of one hand). When the browser freezes, it becomes totally unresponsive - it doesn't fade or display "Not Responding", and Task Manager shows nothing abnormal, but it doesn't accept any input at all, any video or other animated material that may have been displaying freezes, and it can only be "fixed" by force quitting from the task manager and reopening. This is exclusively a firefox issue; other programs open at the same time as the browser freezes are not affected.

The only real lead I have as to what could be going on is that sometimes, things don't freeze all at once, but in a cascading effect. For example, tabs, bookmarks, etc. might not highlight when moused over, but still accept the clicks, or selecting another tab might causes the address bar to display the URL of the selected tab, but the screen displayed in the window will not change. Once these cascading changes start, they generally progress to total freeze before I have a chance to do much with that information (only a few seconds), but it's unusual enough behavior to be worth noticing.

Things I've already tried that haven't fixed the issue:

  • Reducing the number of tabs used and otherwise reducing Firefox's system resource usage has not impacted the problem in any way.
  • Running in Troubleshoot Mode has not had a consistent effect on the problem (the most recent time I did, the browser ran stably for longer than I could stand to use the internet without my ad blocker, but this is only one data point in an already inconsistent spread; prior instances of the problem have occurred in Troubleshoot Mode)
  • Disabling hardware acceleration has not fixed the issue.
  • The issue has persisted through multiple refreshes and at least one full uninstall and clean reinstall.
  • The issue persisted after creating and switching to a new profile multiple times.
  • The issue persisted after renaming places.sqlite
  • The issue persisted after clearing cache and cookies multiple times.
  • The issue persisted after clearing downloads and history.
  • And very likely some other stuff that I'm forgetting, I've been trying to fix this on my own for a while now.

The lag is very problematic to me, because I do most of my work using the browser. When the keyboard starts lagging I can only enter text using copy/paste with mouse (which works fine). The only way to solve it is to restart Firefox (which can result in lost work).

The lag, when it starts, is 10 seconds or more for each keystroke. It occurs about once every few days.

I've been dealing with this issue for a long time now, without finding any solution

On macOS, whenever I am using Bluetooth headphones (Sony XM4, Airpods Pro), videos will hang for a few seconds just as the video is starting. This happens again if I pause/unpause or if I seek forward/backward on a video. The video "spinning animation" will appear and it will take 2-3 seconds for the video to start. This happens immediately, even if I click pause/start fast (ie: this is not after some delay necessarily). Also, if I mute audio on the video, the issue does not manifest itself.

During the waiting, Firefox itself seem to be hanging: for instance if I click on an extension icon in the toolbar, nothing will happen until the video finally start playing and then the extension menu will open up

When using Google Meet or Zoom for instance, I sometimes have to wait up to 10 seconds or so before Bluetooth Audio/Microphone starts after I've joined a meeting.

The issue is not specific to these platforms: I experience the same issue on other platforms such as Facebook, dailymotion, vimeo, zoom. On Facebook, since videos start muted, I can see the videos start playing right away, and then if I unmute sound the video stops, and start again with sound after 3 seconds or so

The issue does NOT manifest itself when playing an audio-only stream: ex Soundcloud or local radio stations audio stream

Things I've tried and didn't help - Troubleshoot mode - Different Firefox profile - Different Firefox install - Restarting my system

This feels like Firefox/macOS is waiting for Bluetooth to activate, or something like that. I have a feeling this only happens for certain types of video/audio codecs but I am not sure how to validate that (ex: no issues on soundcloud, petron audio-only posts).

The problem is entirely non-existent when I'm using sound output that is not Bluetooth.

This does not happen with other browsers otherwise I wouldn't be posting here :)

Have used Firefox for decades and suddenly it is having problems. If I surf around and have a few tabs open, some of them might crash. Firefox tries to restore them and sometimes it works and sometimes they just crash again immediately. I can go to Amazon and the page won't load completely so I can't do anything. If I try and close Firefox it won't close, it is frozen. And often, pages just load very slowly even though my internet connection is strong. This just started about a month or so ago. I have refreshed Firefox, updated it, and checked the systems on my computer. All my internal diagnostics returned "no issues." So it has to be the program.

Hello Mozilla Support,

I am encountering display issues with my WordPress website, which is dedicated to a fan-made game called Pokémon Infinite Fusion. The site appears to load correctly on other browsers like Chrome and Edge, but certain elements are not displaying properly on Firefox.

Website Details:

   Main URL: Pokémon Infinite Fusion
   Specific Pages with Issues:
       Pokémon Infinite Fusion Sprite Installer
       Pokémon Infinite Fusion Calculator

What I Tried:

   CSS and JavaScript Debugging: Checked and validated CSS and JavaScript for compatibility issues.
   Browser Cache Clearing: Cleared the cache and cookies in Firefox to ensure it wasn’t a caching issue.
   Add-ons Disabled: Ran Firefox in Safe Mode with all add-ons disabled to see if any extensions were causing the issue.
   Responsive Design Mode: Used Firefox's Responsive Design Mode to check how the site renders on different screen sizes.
   Error Console: Reviewed the Error Console in Firefox to identify any specific errors or warnings.

What I Expected:

I expected that the website would display consistently across all browsers, including Firefox.

What Actually Happened:

Despite my efforts, certain elements on the site, such as images and interactive features, still do not display correctly on Firefox. These issues are not present on other browsers, which suggests a compatibility problem specific to Firefox.

Questions:

   Are there any known compatibility issues between Firefox and certain WordPress themes or plugins that might cause this problem?
   Could there be specific CSS or JavaScript practices that work in other browsers but not in Firefox?
   Are there additional tools or techniques in Firefox that I can use to diagnose and fix these display issues?

I would appreciate any advice or suggestions on how to resolve these display issues. Ensuring a consistent user experience across all browsers is important for my website.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Best regards, Saimhbx
