Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

Firefox - Frequent, frustrating hangs and lockups on new PC

I was lucky enough to be able to buld a new PC recently, Running Windows 10 Pro on a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X rig, Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and 32gb of RAM. Nvidia Gforce 1070 GPU (stand in until I can get better in the new year) Should easily be enough to run Firefox right? Apparently not.

Performance in Firefox is little better than it was on my old rig, (which was still lousy). The browser constantly freezes and locks up, not responding at all to mouse clicks between tabs or on the page. It is especially common when a website opens a file requester, such as when I'm working on my website in Wordpress, but it also happens when working with downloads or seemingly randomly too (my downloads folder is on the C drive and always accessble).

I've tried disabling all plugins (I only have 3, Privacy Badger, Facebook container and Sticky Password), I don't see what point there is in resetting the profile as I only got this computer 3 days ago.

Regards software that might conflict, I run Malwarebytes anti-malware and DisplayFusion but I've tried disabling the latter and still no joy.

I really don't want to Chrome but it's leaving me little choice here. Is there anything else I can try? Thunderbird on the same PC works perfectly.

Hi:

I am using the Safari browser on my Mac. Suddenly when I wanted to login into the Firefox account I got the 500 Error message that I pasted in the Subject. I am a new user of Firefox, just switched from Safari and I am not computer savvy...

I cannot login, I cannot create another account...

I hope I do not have to go back to Safari.... I have no idea what might cause this problem and what to do. I hope that somebody has the answer. Thanks in advance.

I constantly use the "This time, search with..." option in the search bar to switch between my default search engine and others on the fly. Since version 84.0, this now needlessly prepends the query with a search engine label and requires an additional action to complete (either a return or click of search arrow).

I feel as though the clicking of any of those alternate search engine options is enough to establish intent by the user and should act as a submit button for the request. The only "advantage" this new functionality allows for is a select-first, query-after approach, which I find uncommon.

My request:

1) Return previous behavior. 2) Implement hybrid -- Search-first, query-after produces label; query first, search after submits. 3) Provide an option in the settings to toggle behavior.

Hope someone can help/shed some light on the change,

Thanks

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

Recently (the last week), my Firefox browser is randomly dropping characters from the text of a web page. I have the latest update (83.0 (64-bit)) and have also tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem is not happening with other programs, (text editors, spreadsheets) or in chrome. I have attached an image below to show the problem. If I refresh the page, usually all the characters appear. If I select the text, the characters also appear. Any suggestions? I haven't recently added any new plugins.

Just purchased a Windows Surface Pro and setting it up to be the same as my Windows 10 Laptop. I have synced my Laptop which I would understand to mean that my bookmarks, ID/passwords etc are copied to a master in their cloud. Signing in to Firefox on Surface Pro and turning on sync does not give me the same setup as the PC.

1st question: How does Sync know that a device should be updated to match the cloud version, or the cloud version should be updated to match the device? If two devices are made different by daily actions, and both have sync turned on, does that make duplicates on both devices?

2nd question: I was expecting to see my pinned tabs, and my bookmark folders with contents be synced as well but not sure that is included.  ?

First, when i go to youtube, and sign in, it will show in some panels to sign in, even though im signed in in the top right of youtube, and youtube doesnt fully recognize that im signed in, and because of that, i cant add videos to playlists(because youtube thinks im not signed in). However other browsers dont have this problem and they work perfectly. I have tried with all the extras unninstalled (they were blocking ads and stuff) and it still happens. Second problem is not that impactful, but sometimes when i open a new tab my monitor turns black, with a big thrust of white in the center appearing and dispearing rapidly, and monitor only comes back from black when i click away, or by waiting a considerable amount of time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and it didnt fix any of the issues.

A while back, I accidentally clicked on "always block" in the popup when I received a notice of a potential cross-site script attack for a frequently visited site. Since then, whenever the site comes up in a search and i click on it, Firefox will not open it. Instead, I need to right-click, copy link, and paste in the address bar. I have tried to find information on how to undo this, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a list somewhere of blocked sites that I can unblock? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I have updated my O/S from Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.10. Nothing else. Now Firefox is nearly useless

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.
