So, for awhile now when I go to some sites, the screen suddenly starts flashing, then it jitters and turns some light color (like a light green; not blue screen, not black). If I guess where the "X" is to shut down the tab that has the video, I can end this. Often, like on youtube, I find the problem is some ad video that was playing. The rest of the site is ok. But not always.

One site I wrote down a few days where it happened: https://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/eagles-face-giants-2022-playoff-opener?cid=sm_npd_rsn_phi_fb_mn&fbclid=IwAR3rGUEa0W8fElrzCWANSIUpti9VKlbn0iHyvcFsviajYExo5tcRSyWBJXA

scroll down to video and everything blinks, becomes unuseable

It happens in lots of places, though. It is not per se a YouTube problem or just a problem at NBCSports. I shell out to MS Edge, and it seems to handle everything fine, so I'm assuming at this point it is a browser issue.

One last point: after this happen the screen display is degraded even after I manage to shut down the offending tab or video. It takes a Log off/log back in or reboot to fix everything. The degradation takes the form of making the screen look a bit like a pointilist painting, although that's an exaggeration.

FF 109.0.1 64 bit Windows 11 NVidia GeFORCE RTX 3060 running studio driver 526.98 (I have switched periodically from / to their gaming driver, which doesn't seem to matter)

Any help, appreciated.

Hi, I like to go to random websites sometimes, but I recently found out that site evil.com tries to use an exploit and to install a malicious file. I wonder if it's a problem with browser. I'm using waterfox, a firefox-based browser. I'm attaching a screenshot from windows defender logs. I don't know if it's important, but I have a virtualization enabled.

With increasing frequency, when I attempt to load a website -- well-established ones that I've had bookmarked for years -- I initially get one of two messages: either the site I'm about to go to is unsecure (http) or that the web address isn't recognized.

Yet, in the first case, when I go to the "unsecured" site anyway, it is in fact a secure (https) site.

And in the second case, if I hit the option to "try again", it connects instantly.

What's going on here? BTW, this happens whether I'm using a VPN or not. And sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

Thanks for any help.

Hi

I only have this problem on https://seb.se/ and it worked on my old computer with windows 10, it also works with Edge.

It seems Firefox does not recognize links on that site. Nothing can be clicked and the pointer does not change when hovering a link.

The primary monitor properly displays that only one window is open, however the second monitor shows that there are multiple windows open. Although this COULD be a Windows issue, I haven't seen it with any other programs, which is why I'm reporting it here.

Firefox creates a duplicate of itself on the Default Apps section after it updates from a Fresh Install of Firefox and the only way i have found to "fix" this was to reinstall the browser completely but it simply reappears with a duplicate of itself again after it updates and as far as i know it only does it after a fresh install with subsequent updates not creating any more duplicates

both entries just act the same and update at the same time synced with eachother instead of having a separate duplicate entry when you try to change the default apps

hello, thanks, mozilla vpn + firefox multi-account containers is very powerful.

i want to be able to open a new tab and force/lock it to use a specific container, no matter what website is opened.

for example, let's day i have firefox configured that: whenever i open 'website.com', it opens in a container named 'website' nothing surprising there.

now i open a new blank tab in a container called 'secret'

here is the behavior, current and desired current: in that tab, if i try to goto 'website.com', the tab's container will change from 'secret' to 'website' desired: in that tab, if i try to goto 'website.com', the tab's container will NOT change to 'website', the container will remain 'secret

i hope that makes sense,

Firefox AND Monitor:Questions on how to change Firefox account's primary email address to a previously/currently used one and how to read replies to that question already posted

Question 1. I see questions similar to mine, but how do I access replies? I click on them, but there is no link attached.

Question 2,  How do I use Firefox Monitor to change my Firefox account primary email address to an email that is already in use, by me, used for an older version of Firefox on a previous computer that is no longer in service? 

This is what I've done. In Monitor, I clicked on the link that says "Change Primary Email Address." It goes to a nice instruction page. I click Menu lines, go to Manage Account, I try to add the email as a secondary, so that I can then make it my primary. I click save. However, I get a pretty red error message that tells me "Account already exists." Of course it does. It's my account. I'm on a less than a year old PC, which came with Windows 11 already loaded. I'm on Firefox version 109.0.1, 64-bit. I've used Firefox on laptops for years. I'm very comfortable using regedit. Thanks. Lakshmi

I am using Firefox and other browsers to attempt to download files containing multiple spaces in the filename, but only Firefox is condensing the multiple spaces down to a single space when downloading. I've seen this in another support request, dated June of 2021, but there was no resolution posted. Any help would be appreciated. I can see the app displaying the file correctly, and when moving the file among the different stops in the app, the spaces are replaced by the '+' char, so as to keep track of the spaces. However, as soon as it lands on the download option, it retains only a single space. Thanks in advance.

I recently got the latest version of windows 11 to go with the latest version of firefox. I play streaming movies on several apps with the sound working. all apps that use sound work, except for one. Firefox will pay the sound for a couple seconds and go silent. For now I am using chrome, which allows the sound to work on all of my streaming videos and movies (netflix, amazon, etc.). I would prefer to use firefox, but will unable to do so unless I can get the sound working again. I updated my sound card drivers and my video drivers. Thanks

I love Firefox but it has a market share of just around 7% and is even lower than Edge (which is terrible IMO). Chrome has the most users at around 65%.

Although Firefox is a much better browser, the perception for many is that Chrome is better due to much faster browser loading. I have Chrome and Firefox installed on Windows 11 with the same extensions and Chrome loads my home page in 2 sec whereas Firefox takes 7 sec to load. Even after deleting all cookies, cache and web history, Firefox still takes 7 sec to load my home page.

It's great to prioritize security, flexibility etc and I love these aspects of Firefox, but by not doing something to improve the awful loading times, you are leaving users with the impression that Firefox is inferior and LOSING the browser battle.
