Firefox Stutter every 10 seconds (not sessionstore related ?)

Hello,

I recently had to switch back to my laptop and noticed that firefox is micro-stuttering (missing a couple of frame at worse) at a somewhat regular interval. Which is very noticable and head-ache inducing when watching a youtube video.

I tried to disable every plugins that I have, switching to a new profile, setting browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo and browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo to 0, closing everything in the background, clearing cookies caches and etc.

Nothing worked, I noticed that disabling window's "Hardware-Accelerated GPU Scheduling" helped. With it on I've got a very regular micro stutter (every 10 seconds) whereas with it turned off I "only" get a microstutter once every 20/30 ish seconds. Therefore I suspect some shenanigans with optimus drivers but I don't know for sure how to confirm. I tried to force firefox to use the integrated gpu with nvidia pannel but it didn't help.

I would have capture a video to show off the problem but everytime I start recording (with lenovo's nerve sense capture software) the problem totally disappears !

Anyone have any ideas about what could be happening / how to diagnose more precisely the problem ? Thanks for reading.

specs :Windows 10 (x64), Firefox 78.0.1 (x64), Intel Core i5-7300HQ, optimus GPUS : Intel HD Graphics 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Max-Q)

After years of using Firefox for browsing, Yahoo has suddenly overwritten my Firefox blocking access and I cannot find a way of removing it on the Windows 10 software; as it doesn't show up as a separate app. Do I delete all Mozilla-Firefox programmes and reinstall Firefox?

Hi

Some months ago I added a 32" samsung usb screen to my PC, my operating system is windows 7, This maybe coincidental and not at fault. Since adding the screen my Firefox browser crashes, what happens is the screen starts flashing and most of the display disapears you can click on some buttons if displayed or you know where they are but the only way to stop it is to close and reopen the browser, it seems to happen more frequently in a browsing session once its happend once, sometimes it dosn't happen. It seems to be triggered by the mouse scrolling wheel. I have removed and reloaded Firefox but still the same, when reloading it recognises the previous instalation and recalls some previous settings, I don't seem to be able to stop this happening. Lastly the fault does not occur on any other browser. Firefox is my default and prefered browser and I would like to cure this if possible, I have run virus scans etc and dont appear to have any contamination issues.

Any advise gratefully recieved

Many thanks Steve Hull

Hallo! The recent version of Firefox allows to open .pdf in Firefox. However, there is still allways the question how to proceed, even if I mark the box to make this unneccessary in the future. When I next time try to open a downloaded .pdf, the question is there again. (I hope you can understand the problem, I am not a native english speaker). See the attachments.

I only want to block adverts when they are intrusive and I feel bad about blocking acceptable ads. Most ad blockers will allow you to whitelist a website but I often will not notice that the ads are being blocked and thus not white list it. What I want is an ad block extension to Firefox that only turns on for new sites when I tell it to, although it should be able to remember which sites I want it on for. I can't think of the best way to explain this which is why I couldn't find a solution on the web.

Does anyone know of an adblocker with this feature and how do I turn it on?

If someone wants to reset their browser they can search how to do it. Why on earth would you suggest a reset/destruction of a full working browser under the name of "refresh" ?????

One is abstracted, clicks ok, and destroys their well set up browser for no reason at all !!!

You should rename the damn "refresh" or better completely trash it!

Just last night I updated Firefox to version 78.0.1 on Fedora. I cleared all my history. I had to sign in to Firefox account again for some reason.

And this afternoon I discovered that my Logins and Passwords has gone empty. I use master a password and that is still in effect, and my sync settings includes logins and passwords. I've done this many times--signed in to my Firefox account, set up a master password and I'd see all my saved passwords there after doing a fresh install of my operating system. I don't know what happened now.

When I signed on to my computer this a.m. and clicked on the Firefox icon from my Task Bar (on the bottom of the page) to bring up my homepage, it wouldn't go. I rec'd a msg stating it "couldn't find" a .dll file or something. When I clicked on the icon on my desktop, it started a whole new page - I lost all my "saved" pages and my "favorites" menu was gone! What happened and how can I get my "normal" Firefox page ?

Suddenly, all my passwords got deleted from Firefox last week, and when I went to check, I found that a new version of Firefox had just been installed on my windows 10 desktop. I got the passwords back, but not only do most of them still not work, but even when I sign in manually, they don't work, so I have to reset them for each site (and usually I can reset it to exactly the same password I have been using all along, which is strange by itself). The next time I go to that site, again my password doesn't work, so I open up Chrome and get in with no problem. Thus, it is not just the saving of my passwords that isn't working in Firefox, it is that these sites are not recognizing my correct passwords when I type them in manually on Firefox. Has this happened to anyone else had this problem, and is there a solution? I have used Firefox for years and love it, but I can't continue to use it if it takes me forever to get into all these websites. Thanks.

FF 78.0.1 installed. Why is FF search now forcing a drop down list of these undesirable websites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. I never use these websites, I don't want to interact with them, I don't want to be told about them, I don't want to be directed to them. I don't want to be distracted with extraneous 'options' that divert my attention from the task at hand. This overrides my Preference settings. I already turned off or deleted all the alternative search engines "that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter keywords." None of these new website additions are in that list.

Is there a simple way to get rid of this without monkeying around with internal settings? Company and public libary users are locked out of this.

PLEASE!!! Firefox is not doing anyone favors by forcing new features without warning or explanation in mandatory updates. We keep losing basic functions like the ability to see URLs in the address bar -which I do need - and then spend a lot of time trying to figure out why something unwanted like this started happening and whether it can be stopped.
