Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

I am ... @riltor.com, ... @sudddnlink.net, and ... @gmail.com. I have always been all three of those since the beginning of those services. I had the following PLANS but could not carry them out. I'll explain.

Following the above subject instructions I want to change ... @suddenlink.net from being my mail Firefox sign-on (they've become unreliable of late) if it stays that way I'll quit that ISP. I saw I had set ... @realtor.com as a secondary, so I deleted it IN ORDER TO ADD ... @gmail.com. My plan was then to name ... @gmail.com as the primary and re-add ... @riltor.com as the secondary.

So much for planning, I found out in trying to use ... @gmail.com that it's IN USE, huh? I probably did that at some point, but I don't recall, and Firefox should show it as assigned but actually unused.

Is there a way someone can delete the ... @gmail.com account so it's not there, so that I can make it the primary of this account as stated in my plans above? I want to keep all the stored data in the suddenlink.net account which is why I wanted to change its email to begin with.

I can prove provenance of all three email addresses as being tied to me.

What I did was used my profile to load on my mother in laws new computer to have all her site and passwords on it. I logged out of my profile while deleting all of my information that she does not need. when I switched back to my computer. It had also deleted everything on mine as well even though while deleting on the new computer I was not logged in. Is there a way to retrieve all that information?

Flash drive suddenly Read Only, unable to completely clear Firefox cache, “Error extracting files”

I’ll try posting this on the Micro Center and Mozilla Firefox forum pages, since no one answered on the LMDE forum. We really can’t afford to be involved with computers, and had to go to Linux when support ran out for Windows XP. Since writing this I found the Disks utility, (when searching for how to give a name to flash drives), which has buttons for “Check Filesystem” and “Repair Filesystem”. A check confirmed corruption, but trying “Repair”, twice, each time brought, “Error while repairing filesystem”.

It all started with downloading a large, 709.5 MB, Zip archive of FLAC audio files, (from the Internet Archive). With our slow connection, and the horribly underpowered old Compaq NetBook I was using, it took an hour and a half. (Compaq Mini CQ 10-100, originally Windows XP, now running Linux Mint Debian Edition4 32 bit.) I was downloading to a flash drive, and extracted the folder with files to the same flash drive. It said, “Error extracting files”, something it often says, and I haven’t been able to find an explanation of what that really means and what to do about it. I’ve simply been checking that the files are all there, and if not, fetching the missing ones singly. I don’t know why the downloaded files have larger MB numbers than are given on the dropdown lists for FLAC and VBR MP3 files under “Download Options”. I figure perhaps the error message is triggered by the MB discrepancy.

In this case, the two files, two sides of an LP, were there, with the usual larger MB count, but when I tried to Rename them, and when I tried “Properties”, I was told that I didn’t have the permissions to do that, and “Error setting permissions: Read-only file system”. Same thing when I tried to Delete the Zip archive, the folder with its two files, or the files separately. I tried Rename and Delete also on our better computer with the same result.

So the 64 GB flash drive with 11.8 GB space is now Read-only, and I can’t find what could have caused it, and how to, or if it’s possible to, undo that. (Micro Center 3.1 64 GB, five for $27. on Amazon, where the top reviewer neatly explains how they are, in effect, “factory seconds”.)

I hope it’s even safe to use it, to play all the music I’d downloaded to it, and copy files to disc. Would it be safe to play those two sides of that last record, or should it be avoided? I wonder, if I were to copy everything, except that last Zip archive and the folder and files extracted from it, off the now read-only flash drive, if it would even let me erase-reformat it, and if it did, if I should use it, or is it defective?

Another consequence, it would seem, of that download, is that there are 5.3 MB in the Firefox browser cache that will not clear. I found instructions in Mozilla support for how to delete the Firefox cache folder, but the file manager can’t find any such folder. I tried uninstalling and installing Firefox, but it kept my settings, and also that 5.3 MB of something in the cache. Why would something in the cache not clear? Can it be cleared?

So, to reiterate the questions: 1. Why would a flash drive – USB stick – suddenly become read-only? 2. Would that be an indication that the flash drive is defective? 3. Can it be restored to read-write? 4. Could it have been caused by a corrupt file, presumably corrupted in the long download? 5. Would the corrupt file also be what is refusing to be cleared from the Firefox browser cache? 6. Can that cache ever again be cleared to “0 bytes”? 7. Will the flash drive allow itself to be reformatted? 8. Is it safe to use the flash drive, either as is - read-only, for the files on it, or if it were to be reformatted? And would it be safe to play the two files of that last record, sitting there, undeletable? 9. What do you do when you get the message, “Error extracting files”? Do you extract again, and do you have it overwrite whatever files were extracted the first time, or “Skip” those? Do you just check that the files are all there and seem to be alright, and figure the error message was a false positive, perhaps caused by Checksum discrepancy?

Sorry for submitting such a long set of different but related questions, which include probably wrong notions misinterpreted from answers to similar searched-up questions, and are not necessarily LMDE-centric. I will be grateful for any answers, as will subsequent searchers, since previous discussions to be found online are not very helpful.

so, im lucky enough or ignorant enough not to have used the support forum for about a year now. so, by downloading the latest thunderbird update, things got a bit sideways and i ended up here for instructions. now, i do have (had) an account with the old system. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/user/georgeka thats me!. it is described that it would be somehow linked to a firefox account or something. didnt happen. i decided to manually re-enter my account info to see if i could do it myself. nope. decided to create new account. using chrome i press the login/signup button, but i am taken to a page dedicated to sign in. there is NO register and NO other info. when i type my email to see if i am taken to the next step: Enter your email -> email ZZZZZZZZ@ABC.CDE -> Continue to Mozilla Support, i get the error, Missing parameter: email while the mail shows up on the box. different mail, same result. goes no, futher.

using firefox 88.0.1 64bit, i reach the same point but when i type the email, i am shown the login / reset page.

There is an older and now archived discussion elsewhere in this forum about this topic: links in Outlook 365 only open in Msft's browsers, specifically now Edge. There was much discussion in the earlier thread about default file formats such as mht and mhtml (I think). The answers seemed to be that Firefox doesn't render those file formats well or at all.

But I don't understand those answers. For this reason: if I let links within email do their thing and open in Edge, then go to the address bar in Edge, copy the URL and "Paste And Go" in Firefox, then Firefox does just fine getting me to the link's destination.

Isn't there an option (somewhere) that will let that link go directly to Firefox? (Yes, Firefox is my Win10 default browser.)

Thanks. Perennially PO'd at Msft FM

Perplexing and Infuriating issue:

Firefox repeatedly uses 300%+ CPU and becomes unresponsive, causes Mac to heat up. I tried all the fixes suggested by Mozilla to get rid of the problem, to no avail. Firefox is up to date, refreshed, reinstalled, without add ons or plugins, running in safe mode, you name it... The problem keeps coming back.

I have been using Firefox for years and random crazy Firefox CPU peaks have been an issue on my MacBook Pro, causing the fan to go in overdrive and the laptop to overheat. Already that was incomprehensible as I would only be browsing the web when that would happen ( it wasn't like I was uploading or downloading or streaming big files).

Now the same Firefox CPU overload is happening on my new Mac mini. Whenever my daughter tries to do her homework she calls me over and points at the "wheel of death". Surprise, surprise, Firefox is unresponsive. I check the Activity Monitor and there you have it again: Firefox at 320% CPU capacity, the computer sounding like a propeller plane ready to take off, we have to force quit, daughter looses some of her work etc.. It drives everyone insane.

Looking into what sites or apps my daughter uses for homework might give an indication as to where the problem lies?? She tells she has the following tabs opened: Gmail, Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Classroom. Is there a compatibility issue between Firefox and Google?

For the time being, I had no choice but to uninstall Firefox and revert to using Safari as our default browser. We like Firefox but using it has become too much of a hindrance. Are the developers planning to resolve the issue any time soon?

Thank you for your replies, much appreciated.

I have Audio clipping issues when I use the Text To Speech (TTS) function of the reader mode. As soon as I click read volume jumps to unreasonable, clipped level, before dropping to a more reasonable, but still loud audio level. I don't have any other program that clips because of too much volume except for the TTS function in FireFox.

I've checked and I don't think this is the problem that was affecting versions earlier than 90. I'm currently on 91.0.2 I didn't try to update it today but we did when the problem was first occurred.

I've attached a screenshot

This problem only occurs in firefox (but is replicable on 2 other windows machines with firefox over the last 2 weeks) when the following occurs:

  • Printing in firefox (printing to PDF or any Printer doesn't matter)
  • Pages per sheet is set to 2, and pages to print is set to custom and is not printing the whole document.

When this happens, the page will be cut off at the bottom and text will be missing from the printed copy - it's not being pushed further down.

It doesn't occur when we print the whole document. It doesn't occur when we print in other browsers. It did not occur when we printed singular pages per sheet.

We've tried a few different things, such as trying to adjust margins and scaling but haven't been able to resolve the issue other than to switch to a different browser.

Are there any suggestions for a fix or how would I go about filing a bug report?

I have a problem, firefox is causing my screen to flicker and mess up the interface on my computer. I have no addons installed. I am always surfing incognito. In many cases the screen flickers a few times, and if I am fast enough to close Firefox the problem goes away. This problems does not happen with any other software that utilize on my computer. This occurs for the most part when I am on social media sites like FB, Linkedin or IMDb. Sometimes one can see that some square grafics as an error with in the browser window. And then after a minute or so the flickering starts. These grafic errors never occur outside the browser window and when they appear. But when the screen starts to flicker, the grafic errors occur all over the screen to the point when I close Firefox. It goes back to normal. If I am not fast enough, os stalls and I have to perform a hard reboot, with powerbutton.
