I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

Firefox crashes when switching between tabs. Worse than usual crash, the last page i was viewing is there but unresponsive to mouse or keyboard including contr-alt-delete. Must push and hold the power button on my Dell XPS8940. Windows 10 Home 21H2 OS Build 19044.1586. Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4170.0.

There was a window with 7 tabs, 1 playing a youtube video and 5 with videos not playing, one other site with no audio and another window with a website streaming only audio. When the system stopped, the speakers made an odd sort of buzz sound until powered off. I am on the latest version FF 99.0.1 but a similar crash happened on version 98.0.1. Before that this Dell never locked/crashed up this way.

This Dell PC has Realtek audio just like our HP W10 laptop and they both had issues when new with all sound not working when playing a youtube video only in Firefox (HP Feb 2021 and Dell Oct 2021). Launching Groove Music and playing an mp3 always got the sound working. Problem did not cause any program to crash. Windows updates to drives eventually fixed the problem but it only even happened in Firefox. Current problem is new in the last month or two and only on Dell.

Why are google sites (Youtube, Gmail and Search) getting disconnected when all other sites are still connected to the Net? This has been happening since November 2021.

When that happens I close the FF and then immediately open it. Now the google sites work properly.

Never had that problem with other sites.....never!

Why the hell is this happening? Is FF responsible or Google?

So what is the solution?

I have been using Firefox as my default browser for many years and much prefer it to the other browsers. However, several weeks ago Firefox started blocking the download of my morning newspaper. Now I have to copy the link from my morning newspaper email and paste it into Chrome to get access to my newspaper rather than simply clicking the link in the email. While I found this very annoying, when I couldn't find a workaround, I just continued to copy/paste into Chrome. Today I tried to download my IRA quarterly statement and found Firefox is blocking this pdf download also. Note that in neither case does Firefox tell me that they are blocking the downloads and they just do not download and some pdfs do download. So this is now getting beyond just annoying. Is there a workaround for this new Firefox problem or is my only alternative to define Chrome or Edge as my default browser and give up Firefox?

Whenever I try to full screen a video the first time I open the browser, the video will not completely fill the screen. It only happens on firefox and the first time I open the browser.

I have linked it here. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/rhwuvz/firefox_full_screen_on_win11_always_leaves_some/ I tried to change themes and that also did not work. Not sure what the problem is. Please help.

I am going to have to stop using Firefox, which I otherwise like a lot, because it blocks me from doing so many things, such as, on a retail site that I need to email, it will not allow me to open their email function. Or their chat function. I can find no solution to this problem and have to switch to another browser. Firefox did not used to do this.

Hello i've been having some problems on the latest software of yours i'm most of the time watching livestreams but from update v.100 of your software it became weird tab suspends after some in activity which is a problem for me

i found a solution through ABOUT:CONFIG and disabled these 3 for videos 1 - media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled 2 - media.resume-bkgnd-video-on-tabhover 3 - browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory

for videos and live streams it was good it didn't suspend but my problem now since update v.102 is that video plays but the CHAT stops and doesn't reload until i reopen firefox to the front of my programs

although it is runnning in the background and NOT MINIMIZED

even when the live stream has some lags and re-buffer it doesn't rebuffer or refresh the page to reconnect to the live stream until i force my firefox in front of my programs or games and again it was not minimized

if there is an option in the about:config to change this please tell me i'm already losing my mind as i missed one of my friends live stream because of that suspension

thank in advance

I notice some reported this problem in 2020, in a post that's been archived.

I reported it previously in a different post, but I may not have provided enough information. I am using currently 91.10.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap 15.3 Linux.

When I right click on a web page, and choose "Save Page As..." from the menu that appears in response to the right click, then choose "Web Page, complete (*.htm *.html)" as how to save the page, Firefox goes through some process, something is placed on the disk drive. But often, the status of the download shows as "Failed". That is until I retry the download. I've even been able to "Show all downloads" and click on an icon to retry it, sometimes days or weeks later, without even re-visiting the web page which was originally saved, but after clicking on the icon to retry saving the page, the status shows as "Completed". It could just be an issue with Firefox reporting the status, rather than an actual failure.

Is this a "bug"/"error" in the program code for Firefox? If so, is there someway to report it, or will this post serve as such a report?

I'd appreciate any helpful thoughts.

I have a website stored in the popup exceptions. Yet every time I go to that website, Firefox blocks the popup, despite the fact that the URL/URI stored in the settings is EXACTLY the same as the URL/URI of the website being visited.

I then have to press 'allow' every time. Is there any workaround for this please ?

Also, I used to be able to download a PDF from sites directly, but now it goes to view the PDF and then I have to use the 'download' button. Surely there is a fix for this ?

So, I joined a couple porn sites recently, but I can't download anything from them at home (I can download from the same sites on my work PC without error). I try to download MP4 files and even compressed ZIP files (containing large number of photos). I right-click on the Download link and chose Save Link As. As the browser is opening a window for me to browse to where to save the file to, an error message pops up. "filename.mp4.part could not be read from the source file. Please contact the system administrator" The download is never placed in the download queue and if I browse (in File Explorer) to where I tried to save the file to, the file shows as 0 kb. I have experienced this in Microsoft Edge, too, so it may be computer-wide, such as antivirus blocking the downloads. I have Chrome but Chrome crashes about 5 mins after opening it. I will add that Firefox can save JPG picture files from the websites. I have tried going to Show All Download and clicking Clear Downloads, but as the downloads in question are not queueing, there is not much to clear there. I really don't believe this is an issue related to MP4 files as I can playback MP4 files on the sites. Windows 10 and latest Firefox version. Next troubleshooting steps for me are temporarily disable my antivirus and try saving to a different folder, preferably on the internal HDD. Normally, I save videos to an external USB HDD.

Lately when I attempt to download any pdf file I get the 'file name'.pdf with 'failed' as the result (when I check the Download icon on the FF status bar). I looked in my download directory and I found these 'failed' .pdf files with 0 KB and also some files (same name).pdf.part. I changed the file extension (deleted .part) to .pdf and the files would open in Acrobat. Nobody likes inconsistent problems, but occasionally a pdf will download normally!! But it fails more than it works. Using FF 102.0 (64-bit)

Hi, under Settings/Privacy/Cookies and Site Data/Manage data we can see site per site - how many cookies are currently existing - and how much storage

but I cannot understand what this "storage" includes. Let me explain : As soon as you open New York Times website (www.NYTimes.com), you can see there 12.4Mo of storage for nytimes.com. But if, thanks to Web Developer tools (Ctrl+Maj+I) I delete - all cookies relative to this website - and all cache storage - and all IndexedDB - and all Local Storage - and all Session storage and then close the tab opened on nytimes.com, and purge all cache, settings/manage data still says 10.6Mo for nytimes.com !!

This is obviously not only relative to nytimes.com, but most of the websites I browse have the same. I choose the example of nytimes.com to be very specific, and because it's a site anybody can browse, and the amount of "unknown storage" is very large.

What are these data, if they are not any of the above categories ? Where are they stored ? What are they useful to ?

Thanks in advance for your help !
