I frequently leave Firefox open with a video stream from twitch.tv full-screened on a second monitor while doing other things (playing games, text editing, etc). If I leave Firefox untouched for long enough (more than a couple minutes, less than an hour) playback will start to stutter or lag (usually video first, eventually audio as well). Clicking Firefox or alt-tabbing very frequently fixes the issue, playback immediately becomes smooth. This is not a recent change, I've observed this behavior for months and finally decided to ask about it.
I have no proof that this is a browser issue. It could be a site-specific issue, (I see it most often on twitch but I have also seen it on other video sites like youtube), an OS issue, or something else.
That said, I could easily imagine it being an intentional browser feature - if Firefox is not focused, throttle JS execution and other resources to save power. In many cases this could be phrased as a feature for the user. Does such a feature, and is it configurable? I've looked through about:config and done some googling and find no mention, but I'm asking here to make sure.

Ever since the latest update I have been getting a coding error at the top of every single video I watch. It doesn't matter which website I go to, the error is constantly there, YouTube, MLB, ESPN, Yahoo...etc etc.
Has anyone ever gotten this error in the latest update?

I have not been able to boot Firefox for several weeks now, I've tried my best to fix it but have yet to succeed. I do have several add-ons, but can't modify or delete/disable because Firefox crashes on startup. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. My crash reports cite EXC_BAD_ACCESS / EXC_I386_GPFLT . I haven't been able to find an explanation of those errors.

I made a fresh install of Firefox 68.0.2 on my ASUS K55VD Notebook, but it crashes without error messages even in safe mode from the first run. I have an identical machine with identical version of Win 10 in which the same version of Firefox runs perfectly. I cannot figure what is the difference between the two notebooks. Graphic cards and driver versions are also the same, as far as I can check. Here follows content of the "report.wer" file I found in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\AppCrash_firefox.exe_bb3e6960f0b5268223c1435cf363fbc6e3728b_f5caf6bd_7b14895d-b5c5-4b7b-b130-2893955908a4", which is the only readable crash report I could find in my hard drive containing the string "firefox".
Hope someone can help me...

So, for the past couple of weeks, after every 3-4 days, I go to open Firefox, and all my add-ons and settings keep getting reset.
It's a weird thing. I have my add-ons, my customized settings, and everything is working fine. But after a couple of days, I open up firefox and it's like I'm starting from 0.
I mean, my history, bookmarks, passwords, all remain intact.
But everything else is gone. All my extensions open up a tab saying "now installed!" or something along those lines - plus a tab from Mozilla, today about the privacy notice.
My homepage, search and download settings are back to the defaults.
I have tried to refresh my browser, reinstalled my extensions, but still the same issue.

Hi Guys, Up to last night my Firefox was working fine. This morning it does not open at all. I have reinstalled it, tried safe mode, created new profiles and whatever step you can think of even removing my internet security completely but does not open at all. It just blinks momentarily and that's it.
Any idea as to how to make it run again??

Until recently, I could use the tab key to navigate on websites. Suddenly, the tab key stopped working partially:
- When a website has an input field or a button, using the tab key reaches these fields and afterwards cycles through the UI of Firefox. Links on the website are not accessed by the tab key.
- When a website has no inputs or buttons and only links, the tab key never enters the websites.

Hi, I'm just working on a new website, and I noticed something odd that happens only when I open the site via Firefox. On browsers like Safari and Chrome the rgb hex colour looks identical as in Adobe Photoshop or Apple Pages, where I created content, but Firefox seems to oversaturate the fonts quite nasty for some reason.
I attachted you a screenshot where it should be very visible. If this is a bug, is it possible to get this fixed soon? I don't really want to put a warning on my website for Firefox users if possible.

Youtube and other sites load very slow. Hangs on TLS Handshake fonts.googleapis. cant login in to google account. I get the message, "something went wrong". Tried all of the things suggested in the troubleshooting section to no avail. I don't have this problem with chrome or edge. I HATE both of those browsers and hope that this is a temporary issue with Firefox. Running win10 x64 with latest Firefox update. Is there anything that can fix this?

Windows 10, Firefox 66.0.1 crashes and does not shut down when closed, with these 2 error messages: 1) Mozilla Crash Reporter (all boxes are checked)
When browser is reopened another error message appears: 2) Close Firefox: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.
This appears even after a long delay before restarting Firefox. I have gone through the suggested list of fixes, with no effect.

Since a Firefox update a week or so ago, both my Window 10 laptop and window 7 desktop, who have synch'd bookmarks, show a multiplicity of repetitive entries that I did not bookmark, some are only websites that I visited but did not bookmark, others are sites that I bookmarked once, but are now repeated many times in the toolbar. How do I clear this and avoid the problem? Is it a setting issue? I made a printscreen, but cannot upload it as an image. Please send me an answer at email@example.com

Every couple of years I get sick of Google Chrome and try to go to Firefox. Things mostly work, but sometimes they don't. The things that don't work seem to be buttons and menus. I run Firefox on Linux; today I'm on Fedora 28 with Firefox 66.0.4, but my issues seem to transcend time- probably 8 years or more. But Chrome scares me, so maybe we can address this and get it figured out.
I'll include some specifics to get down to the details of why Firefox fails. Here's a website that I just went to: https://lcsc.com/ . After you get there, a New Coupon windows pops up. Apparently "Coupon in Your Pocket" is a button, but nothing happens when I click on it.
I've been having problems at Aliexpress, too, where it asks me to login but I can't because the login button is unresponsive. But let's not try to fix Aliexpress, perhaps it would be better to focus on the one website so we don't get distracted. And it's easy- just go to it and the coupon will pop up.
I've had problems on other websites that I can't recall right now. But this lcsc.com problem seems to be pretty straightforward, so I decided to report it in the hopes that I can get Firefox to work once and for all. I don't want to have to keep going to Chrome.
See the attached screenshot.
