Over the last year I have uninstalled FF removed settings then reinstalled from scratch. Its been over a year now and FF never can pin point where I am at. Today it says I am 1300+ miles from where I am. I really don't want to go back to using Chrome but it appears I will have to as it normally has my exact position. I travel for 6 months of the year and have 3 internet connections shared via an internal WiFi that I use 99% of the time. They are connected via Starlink, GoogleFi (T-Mobile) and AT&T SIMs. I have a SSID with the _nomap suffix and that fixes Chrome but FF NEVER seems to know where I am, no matter how many times I clear the browsing data. I really don't want to go back to Chrome, but I cannot do my work if FF thinks I am somewhere else all the time. Geez, If only there was an addon or extension that would override FF location so I could tell it where I am. I'm in FF Hell. -Bill

This happens at random intervals, mostly when firefox is being left idle.

Since it starts >1000 threads, it easily fills ram and swap, then get killed by OOM killer. Hence no crash reports.

I'll upload a gist with OOM details from dmesg and journalctl, if there is a way to get debug info for this, please let me know.

I can login to the first step but after I enter the sent password in the second step nothing happens. I have tried basic some trouble shooting like Firefox trouble mode, clearing cache and adding web site to exceptions in settings. GM Help Line told me to use a different browser!!!

Hello, After the last update (September 2023), I've been having issues with in-game ads being blocked, even with exceptions added and Advanced Tracking options turned off.

I got them to work for a couple of days, but now they're being blocked again. I've cleared cache & cookies, restarted Firefox, reset permissions, all have not helped.

Please advise!

I'm using Windows 10 on an HP PC screenshot of website permissions included

as of 2023/09/29 hulu, netflix, prime and disney+ are not playing videos on firefox, after making zero changes to settings or configuration.

I tested Netflix on Google Chrome and videos played, confirming this is a Firefox issue. I cleared recent/all history and changed passwords for those sites. Netflix logs me out if I attempt to play content. Speedtest reports 200 mb/s. Mozilla VPN is installed but turned off. Netflix sign in reports a new device/login in my state which is different from the VPN setting so this confirms that the VPN is not active and blocking content. HBO/Max videos play correctly and that site does not have the same issues. Firefox has crashed numerous times in the last two weeks. Sometimes just a single tab, sometimes a full application insta-quit.

I prefer to compartmentalize usage across different browsers for privacy/security reasons and would like to continue to use Firefox for these streaming services.

Hello,

On my firefox browser the Duo Security website keeps looping and not letting me login. I have tried private window and also have tried to install firefox again. The Duo security website is able to load on other browsers like Chrome and Edge without any issues. I also deleted the appdata and app profile and it is still not functioning. Any other recommendations that I can try?

After upgrade to Firefox ESR 115.3, receive pop-ups of "Alert - Please authenticate to the token "ActivID ActiveClient 1". How to do so depends on the token (for example, using a fingerprint reader or entering a code with a keypad)." Firefox ESR 115.3 is installed on Windows 10 (22H2). ActiveClient 7.1.0 is used with SCR33x USB Smart Card Reader and US Government issued CAC (Smartcard) for authentication to different web sites. Some authentication actions complete by merely clicking OK on the pop-up alert. However, at least one web site (a tenable.sc site using authentication integrated with Active Directory) fails to authenticate and displays a Sign In requesting Username and Password. The only way to complete login (passwords are not permitted and smartcard authentication is required): In Privacy & Security > Certificate Manager > Authentications Decisions + delete the listing of the host name for the tenable.sc server. Close Firefox browser. Open Firefox browser and select the tenable.sc web site (it is an internal URL). Acknowledge the pop-up. A dialog box is displayed to select the certificate from the Smartcard. Authentication is successful and site is usable for that session; however, after browser is closed, inability to authenticate with SmartCard with future sessions unless the host name is deleted from the the Authentication Decisions. The SmartCard Reader is loaded in Privacy & Security Device Manager as ActivCard7.1 using the acpkcs211.dll from HID Global. Prior to upgrade to Firefox ESR 115.3 (from ESR 102.15); the pop-up did not appear for any of the CAC enabled web sites and login to the tenable.sc server correctly used to the smartcard certificate without requiring deletion of the hostname from authentication decisions.

I have been using the Walgreens web site to manage my many prescriptions without problems. Now, most of the Walgreens web site still works but the two menu options that need to display my personal prescription details fail with the display "Sorry, an unexpected error occurred. Please try again later." I initially thought that a Walgreens update might be in progress so just waited. Walgreens support gave me the same answer that there was probably web site maintenance in progress. After 4 days of the same problem and answer, I ported enough information to login in to Walgreens with the Microsoft Edge browser and access to my prescription information worked without a problem. I believe this problem with Firefox started around the time I updated to 117.0.1 but I might not have this perfectly correct. I was just notified to update to 118.0 and did so. Firefox access still fails and Edge access still works. Thanks for any help you can provide. Windows 10

Preventing Focus Stealing When Restoring Session

I am using Firefox 115.3 on Debian 12.1. I have numerous tasks which require the use of my web browser and have allocated a different virtual desktop for each. This means that my browser session typically has several dozen tabs open in numerous windows at one time. Under normal circumstances, this works just fine (and is a testament to the engineering that has gone into this browser).

My issue is that Firefox renders my machine virtually unusable for a few minutes each time I restart my desktop session due to focus stealing. When I open the browser, several dozen windows pop up (as expected) and relocate to their correct virtual desktops (as expected); however, as the windows begin to load, the most recently active Firefox window steals focus repeatedly. If I am, for instance, in the process of typing my password into my desktop e-mail client, a Firefox window may steal focus from the password dialog. In practice, this focus steal happens once every few seconds for several minutes.

I would prefer that Firefox would not steal focus while restoring a session. Does anyone have any suggestions for correcting this issue?

System:

Windows 10 pro 22h2 19045.3516

Intel i5-10200h with UHD 620

Driver 31.0.101.2125

Firefox ESR 115.3.0


When watching streams in firefox, I noticed that overall iGPU load is very high, up to 70%, a lot higher than watching 1080p movie with dedicated player.

I found that the firefox actually only shares 10~20 iGPU load, the rest are from DWM, which load is up to 40% sometimes.

Also found if I switch from the tab with streaming page to another normal webpage, DWM immediately drops its usage to about 2%, firefox still uses some load as it's still decoding. DWM usage rises if I switch back.

I tried force firefox to use nvidia dGPU, firefox does use nvidia card to decode, but the DWM problem said above still apply.


See attatched image as prove.
