Hello everyone!

Firstly, greetings to the community, I hope you people are staying safe. Please refer to my previous questions number one and number two. Do note that my second question has NOT received A SINGLE REPLY from anybody. I have now updated to version 72 and then subsequently to version 76.0.1 (which the latest one at the time of writing this question. I am still suffering from the same problem of stuttering 1080p 60fps YouTube videos due to frame drops, especially using the VP9 codec, although other codecs also drop a few frames. Do note that the audio works just fine in real-time without any lag, and this problem exists ONLY for 1080p @ 60 fps, not for any other resolution or frame rate. I have referred to the following links to try and solve my problem:-

  1. https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8qhbhg/h264_1080p_60fps_stutter_youtube_vimeo_etc/
  2. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277519
  3. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/72.0.2/releasenotes/
  4. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1608485

The Firefox version 72.0.2 release notes categorically state that the issue has been resolved and even points to the bugzilla page for the same. But it still exists even in version 76.0.1, which is surprising. I have tried every possible combination I can think of, from setting media.media-capabilities.enabled = false in about:config to disabling specific codecs and hardware acceleration, none of which solved the issue permanently to my satisfaction. A few settings, at times, improved the issue slightly but there was no permanent solution, even though this has been alluded to in a previous release note. Do note that my graphics drivers are updated and this issue is Firefox-specific, i.e other browsers work just fine. Even the older versions of Firefox work fine, as stated earlier. I would like to state that I prefer using the VP9 codec because other codecs take a toll on my relatively low-bandwidth network connection and this leads to longer buffering times (VP9 does not have this problem). I humbly request the community members and volunteers to help me in this regard, and if need be, point me to the proper channel for lodging a bug report directly to Mozilla.

Thanks and regards,
Preetodeep Dev.

P.S:- If this issue is not resolved, then I will have no choice but to go back to Firefox version 62.0.2, which works just fine with all the default settings.

I am running MACOS 10.15.5 on a MacBook Pro. Up until recently Firefox has worked perfectly. Now, and for maybe the past week or so, I get the pop-up error message "Firefox.app" can't be opened. No other indications or messages.

I have removed and reinstalled the app from the Firefox 77.0.1.dmg file. Still have the issue. I get the same msg when attempting to start Firefox in safe mode. I thought at first this issue may be due to the upgrade to 10.15.5 from 10.15.4, but a family member's Firefox works perfectly on 10.15.5. I actually don't remember when the jump to "5" from "4" actually happened. I have checked the forms and found nothing relating to this specific error. Perhaps I missed it.

I have attempted to recover Firefox from an earlier (6/2/2020)Time Machine backup which I believe was prior to the "5" upgrade, but the message is still the same.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

The 76.01 update of Firefox has completely broken the audio function in my browser. Youtube and Yahoo Finance specifically. I have not checked further. Yes I know Windows 7 is not supported by Microsoft, but Firefox has claimed that it would support Windows 7 indefinitely. Yesterday when I opened Firefox a message said that audio and video might not work if I did not have DRM enabled. I checked and saw that I had DRM enabled, but audio did not work. A button in the message said Enable DRM, I clicked the button anyway. No audio. I restarted Firefox, no audio. I restarted my computer, no audio. I opened Chrome and everything is working fine. I did not even okay this update. I have my preferences set to NOT automatically update. it seems like Firefox is ignoring my preferences. Firefox should provide an instant downgrade to the previous version that supported audio. In the past I have downgraded a few times until things were working smoothly, but it's a headache. Now I understand Firefox makes it even harder to do that. I may just switch to Chrome permanently.

I have had the following issue 5 times now over a longer period of time (Windows 10, Firefox 77.0.1 and earlier versions).

Rarely, when I want to start Firefox, I get stuck in an infinite loop. The mouse cursor changes to a "loading" cursor and starts flickering forever, trying to start Firefox. This is bad enough for my whole system to behave strangely, e.g. mouse clicks will randomly not register or release.

Upon inspecting the task manager, I find that `consent.exe` repeatedly pops up and disappears. I assume it crashes and then firefox tries to restart, repeating in an infinite loop ... I only recently found a dubious/hacky way to stop this without logging out or restarting my pc: When I forcefully rename `C:/Windows/System32/consent.exe` via console, e.g. to `.../consent.exe_`, Firefox will crash "properly" with an error message and I can rename it back.

I have no idea what this `consent.exe` does or why it is called, which makes finding the cause or fixing the issue very hard..


Details / attempted fixes

The most recent time I had this issue, it appeared after trying to open an external link while Firefox was open. Firefox then found a new update and started automatically updating to the newest version (77.0.1), before trying to open the link and giving an error message (I don't remember what it was..). To properly apply the update I closed Firefox, tried to open it again, and I started getting this infinite crash loop.

This is not the first time I had this exact same issue, but the cause seems to vary. The first time I encountered this was back when there was a buggy Windows update, which if I read my logs correctly seems to have been at the end of February 2020. As far as I can remember at this time, the issue appeared immediately after restarting my PC and updating Windows (no opening of external links involved). The only way I managed to fix it was by uninstalling that Windows update. I disabled the following updates for some months. At this time I assumed the cause was the buggy Windows update, but since then I had the same issue 4 more times. Of the times I can remember the issue appeared immediately after

  • updating windows
  •  ??
  •  ??
  • clicking an external link
  • clicking an external link > automatic Firefox update > restart Firefox > crash

Every time I got this issue I tried many things to fix it, including

  • restarting Firefox
  • restarting the PC
  • deleting my Firefox profiles in `%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles` and `%AppData%\..\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles`

none of the above worked any time I had this issue - nonetheless the issue would disappear randomly without me knowing what fixed it.

The first time when it was seemingly caused by the buggy Windows update, I even uninstalled and reinstalled all of Firefox, including deleting my Profiles in AppData. Even then, the issue persisted on a completely clean and barebone install of Firefox. However, since then it is seemingly caused by opening external links and the problem always randomly disappeared before I got to try a clean Firefox install.

The most recent time, the issue disappeared while I was trying `firefox.exe --version`, `firefox.exe --help` to find out my Firefox version (I don't know the correct commands, so nothing happened). This did not work, but when I then tried to start Firefox again, I got about 10 or so error messages on the first attempt (unfortunately, I don't remember the error message..), and then the issue was gone on the second attempt to restart Firefox.

One other random guess I have is that some of my about:config settings may be related, in particular I completely disabled any links from opening popups, be it a new tab or window. But this sounds really like a bug and I certainly do not want to undo this setting.


In the end I am not even sure if this is a Firefox or Windows issue, and I am also not sure what would be a better place to look for support. Should I submit the above as bug report?

I am also very reluctant to try to reproduce the issue since I have no idea what the fix is and spent hours on it every time.

As in the topic, the issue happened to 2 different gmail accounts on my thunderbird client. Accounts were created in different times and circumstances and i believe in default settings. After fetching e-mails to my thunderbird client they were no longer available on the server. It took me quite a bit of time to figure out that it is thunderbird nothing else. The e-mails stay in the client mail and i can read them on it after server removal. I didn't find any working setting in Thunderbird that could help. It didn't happen to outlook or another e-mail account providers except gmail so far. What to do? Is this a Thunderbird bug?

HI,

it's a problem that's been around for years, yet i never got an appropriate answer, so i'm asking here:

The longer i keep Firefox running, the slower my whole system gets and the slower firefox itself gets - up to a point (generally like about 10 hours or so) where everything becomes so slow, i have to manually shut down Firefox via the Task Manager. All that seems to be independent from the fact whether i actually do something in Firefox or not.

So i don't know what Firefox actually does while i'm away that kills my whole system, but i'd really like to know and i appreciate any help!!!

THX in advance

With a shortcut from homescreen that opens in Firefox, however it's 50-50 whether that will actually load the content, otherwise it just shows a white page no content. Tapping the reload ('arrow circle') does nothing. Selecting the url-bar then tap Enter/Return on the keyboard then actually loads the content - always, no exceptions.
