Where is this information stored? I looked in "Memory" devtab, it is not there so I presume this is not stored by the website in my PC. Also, I don't see this data in in History.

Where is it?

But Firefox - zilch, nothing, blank screen. And when it did load Facebook, 99% of the times no photos showed and there was a text message in the corner of the photo holding area saying things like "may be an image of a boat" or it might say "may be an image of bridge"... etc...

As the subject says, when attempting to upload images from my computer (Ubuntu 20.04 on Firefox 94), often but not always, the result will be a visual glitch similar to the image attached. The only time which I have ever used Zoom on Firefox, the same issue happened when I tried to use my webcam, except that the lines rapidly changed colours.

I apologize if this issue has been solved in another thread, but this is a bit hard to describe without the picture, so my attempts to search for said thread were unsuccessful.

The issue is not present when I upload the images in question via mobile. Turning off my extensions has no effect.

The image attached is taken directly from attempting to upload a profile picture to my Firefox account, but I have experienced this issue with websites like Twitter and Ebay for example. I have never had this issue with Imgur, for example, even though I am doing nothing different (uploading images). I do not know why this only occurs for a select few websites.

Any responses or help is appreciated!

Hello! I have a problem with Firefox. Whenever I have selected text and I press the control key, that text becomes unselected. Is like I lost focus of the window or the input text when I'm pressing the control key.

This is really annoying because it makes copy and paste really complicated. Most of the times I have to select the text and right click - "Copy" instead of a simple "Control + C". This only happens on Firefox, as on Chrome the control key works as expected.

I'm on Linux.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

(Firefox 94.0; Fedora 34; Gnome)

When I go to some video websites and click the play button, I see the little circular thing in the image are spinning, indicating that the video is loading. But it never stops and it never plays. Also, the pause button does not have any effect; the loading indicator keeps spinning. Example website: "https://proclassictv.com/" (both with "The Rifleman" and "My Favorite Martian" episodes. I've tried this on a few of the videos available there. Same result. I've tried this with add-ons enabled and with add-ons disabled (current session). I've seen this in a few other websites also. I don't know if the problem is my system, Firefox, or the host website.

I am able to view youtube videos with no problems.

How do I get the videos to play?

Thank-you.

Windows 10 - Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon This fall after an update attempt, Firefox started trying to update every time it was started. Deleted Update files in Program Data. FF would restart normally one time. Update data files were always replaced and the update on every startup continued - over and over and over. Tried refreshing FF- same thing. Uninstalled FF this AM and tried to reinstall when I get the following error:

XULRunner Error: Platform version "94.0.2" is not compatible with minVersion >= 94.0.1 maxVersion <= 94.0.1

No FF - HELP!

When I close Firefox at night & open it next day. Every tab is lost, so I have no record of the sites I was using. This has happened several times. I am now seriously looking at dumping Firefox due to its very unstable & unreliable performance. Fire fox does not offer any means of reopening all the tabs that it closed, it actually deletes all tracking. Firefox is unstable, unreliable & totally user unfriendly. I am dumping Firefox for a more professional browser, as Firefox is rude & makes it impossible to contact & seek advice. I think Firefox sucks.
