Hello, for some reason firefox and all firefox related browsers have developed a problem on my system. All videos and streams stop playing if the window/tab loses focus. This is not the first time this has happened but earlier this year using the about:config flag I will mention below the problem seemed to be fixed but now it is back and worse than ever. I have a symmetrical gigabit connection and the problem only occurs in firefox and it's related browsers, no other aspect of my internet is affected, just video/streams and only in these kinds of browsers.

I do have a bunch of extensions but all are ones I have had for a long time, years in most cases, they were not the cause of the problem before and starting in troubleshoot mode plus a fresh profile in a fresh instal confirmed they are not to blame now either.

To be precise about the issue, when I say the videos stop that is exactly what I mean, there are no lags, no buffering, no partially loaded video bar( where applicable), no tab crashes, no connection problems, no warnings about certain tabs or extensions slowing things down, nothing at all, the video simply stops.

I have tried

- safe/troubleshooting mode to rule out any extensions
- with and without my vpn running
- doing fresh installs of the browsers/ complete fresh slate, revo uninstaller pro ran and using fresh profiles 
- found some suggestions for the about:config page, namely window_occlusion_tracking
- found some contradicting information about hardware acceleration but I tried both with and without and it makes no difference
- experimenting with different versions of firefox, so if you can see which version I am using as I post this, the reason it is not the latest version is because I have tried rolling back through older releases to find one that works, but have yet to suceed,

But no matter what I have tried I cannot get the problem sorted. Either I have that specific window and tab as the sole active window on my device or I need to click into it and either reload the tab or push the play button multiple times before playback resumes.

Open to ideas because i'd rather not have to resort to chrome, thanks

One of my favorite web sites is www.cam4.com. It is an adult live streaming web site. My computer freezes when I'm watching one of the "performers". I refresh the page all is OK for min. or so.

When I use MS Edge I don't get the freezing. Firefox is my default browser for more years than I can count. What is going on? Is there a fix?

Everytime I try to close my Firefox browser window, it just stops. There are multiple processes taking in excess of 200 or 300K in memory that seem to be causing the problem. I have to manually end the process just to close Firefox, and it is quite annoying.

I just checked, my Firefox is up to date. Yesterday I deleted and re-installed Firefox, but it's still doing the same thing.

This is kind of driving me nuts to be honest. I have Chrome, Opera, and Edge also installed on my computer so I'm ready to jetisson Firefox but thought I'd see what the community has to say first.

Firefox 104-107 has square box symptom and numerous dots on printouts instead of letters

Greetings. I waited a long time before updating from FF 88 to FF 104, concerned that the header and footer issues I previously experienced (and resolved) with FF's print preview interface would recur after updating to a newer FF version. Unfortunately after updating to FF 104 the very same issues recurred. The only solution was to disable FF's print preview interface once again and use the Mac print window instead for all printing tasks. Doing that solved the issue with headers and footers getting cut off pdfs and printed pages, but it did not solve two new issues that began after updating to FF 104, which have persisted through FF 107.

When printing emails and/or content from webpages, FF has been inserting what I believe is called square box symptom (multiple square boxes in a row with question marks in some of them) instead of the actual text that is on the email or webpage. FF is also printing a long series of dots across the page in certain areas of my emails, which I assume are the very bottom of the letters that are supposed to be there. These issues have never occurred in all my years as a Firefox user until updating to 104.

Does anyone else have these problems when printing emails and/or webpages? This behavior does not occur with every email or webpage that I print or save as a pdf, but it is prevalent enough that I am having to rely on Safari to create pdfs and/or printouts.

I've done everything I can think of to resolve these two new issues but the behaviors persist. I am attaching 2 screenshots of a recent order confirmation email that I saved as a pdf to demonstrate what the issues look like. The title of the email is cut off. All you can see is a bunch of tiny dots. The amount of the refund is nothing but dots. The title of each item in the order is a bunch of dots, as is the price on the far right. There is a row of square box symptom between some of the items in the order, followed by more missing titles and prices represented by dots, and more dots for the amount of the discount and subtotal.

I was going to submit a bug about this but wanted to inquire here first in case there is a solution that I have not tried. Clearing cookies, cache, and running Disk Utility has not resolved this. Any assistance you can give me is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have always set my browser to open to previous tabs, but about one month ago it only opens to a new tab, even though the boxes are still checked to previous tabs in settings. I have no idea how to fix this-tried reboots, closing, toggling setting on/off, reopening browser, etc., to no avail.

Even more concerning, possibly, is that under Settings, General when trying to fix this issue I noticed at the top of the General Tab: "Your browser is being managed by your organization." I suspect this could be malicious, as I am unemployed and have NEVER used this laptop (Dell Inspirion 3793, Windows 10, 64 bit) with any organization or previous job.

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts regarding both issues and hope that the latter is not a threat that I need to deal with immediately.


Thank you,

Brent G.

"OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc." plugin will sit in the "will be installed shortly" status forever if you have HTTPS-Only mode enabled. I have been pulling my hair out for the last few days trying to figure out why I couldn't play YouTube or many other sites videos.

Turns out the site that the library is downloaded from has a bad certificate installed: https://ciscobinary.openh264.org/libopenh264-2.3.0-linux64.6.so.bz2

``` Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for ciscobinary.openh264.org. The certificate is only valid for the following names: a248.e.akamai.net, *.akamaihd-staging.net, *.akamaihd.net, *.akamaized-staging.net, *.akamaized.net

The browser plug-in for Spectrum Security Suite (F-Secure) does not appear to download.

I do not know where the problem is. It could be with Spectrum software. I did call them first. The lady on the phone says it is a Firefox problem and to seek help from Mozilla.

When I click on the box for setting up secure browsing (I have tried both boxes (top right and 2nd to bottom left) on the screen in the image attached), I just get a new window open with "https://download.sp.f-secure.com/online-safety/fs_firefox_https.xpi" in the navigation box and the rest is white space. There is no spinning wheel, no bell, nothing.

I do not even know what is supposed to happen, as it has been years since I last set up the protection. I do know based on messages received and the displayed log, the browser protection was still working as of 10 days ago (21 Nov 2022).

I actually do most of my browsing now on Linux but I still play a few games that are Windows only so sometimes browse from this system.

I had multiple tabs open that I was using, including the costco.ca page, when the update happened (I can't remember the exact details). All my other open tabs, and all pages since, have worked fine since, but the costco page does not open. At first there were options to check and something about a ceritficate. Now the address shows costco.ca444/Genericerror it says 'Problem loading page' in the tab heading. And the page shows '

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.'

There is no info on how to fix this - and I've spent way too much time trying to fix it. I added it to the exceptions page. No joy. Works fine in Chrome. Very frustrating.

I have Windows 11 on my PC. Is there a way to fix this? Might be an idea to add a link to how to fix it to the error message. Thanks.

Because of your last two updates, I can no longer log into my bank account using Firefox. With version 107.0 I lost the ability to log into www.USBANK.COM and get the account screen, I just get a blank tabbed page, but the USBANK.COM system would still send a text to my phone with the security code required to log in.

With version 107.0.1 released today I no longer receive the text with the security code. Not that it matters because I can't get in any way..... it just gives me a blank screen tab. I now have to use the Microsoft browser to log in and do my banking.
