Hi all,

After searching and applying several settings, I am still getting those annoying messages, popups and whatsoever. No matter what I do. I always preferred Firefox as my most favorable browser for many, many years, however I noticed that I started using Chrome more and more because of all these little annoyances.

The last few things I tried are:

about:config dom.webnotifications.enabled (false) dom.push.enabled (false) dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled (false) (for notifications)

about:config media.autoplay.allow-muted (false) media.autoplay.default (2) (for autoplay media)

These ones didn't help: media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed (false) media.autoplay.ask-permission (false)

Though media doesn't autoplay, I do get a notifcation about if I want to play the media or something similar. Sigh.

Also the help page on Firefox doesn't help at all, like this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay For example; I don't have the "For websites that autoplay sound"-option at all there. See screenshot included.

So what I am trying to here (maybe someone can give me the exact config options):

1. Disable permantly the auto-play function for all media and for all websites 2. Disable every single notification type; I don't want to be asked if I want to play media/sound/music, nor do I want to be asked if I want website notifications or any other kind of notification. I don't want to see a single message at all!!

I hope someone can give me the right settings and/or what to change to make this happen permantly. It's driving me nuts....! Seriously. NUTS! :S

Sidenote; I am also experiencing issues with Firefox on my OnePlus 6T. Sometimes when I enter an URL it doesn't load at all, the screen stays white and doesn't do anything. Closing and starting the app doesn't help. The only solution (sometimes) is to close all my tabs (doesn't matter if it's 10, 40 or 99 tabs). If that fails the solution is a reboot of the phone. And no, it's not the internet connection because a) Chrome wouldn't work, b) nor my other apps. I do use Synchronization between my accounts. The OnePlus 6T was a fresh installation from a couple of weeks ago. Before that (and on my other phone) I had this issue also....

Maybe someone can shed some light as well on the Android issue??

Thank you in advance!

Regards

Starting about 02/11/2020, links in emails take me to a blank page and FireFox stops working. Must close FireFox.

I have neither added nor updated any add-ons.

I disabled all add-ons with no change.

Under Performance, I unchecked " Use recommended performance settings" and 'Use hardware acceleration when available". No change.

The only way a link works is if I have (basic) FireFox already running.

I have reversed the above changes and await HELP.

Latest version of FF 68.0 has re-enabled multiprocess and won't allow me to disable via about:config.

I've been with FF since pretty much the beginning, it's the only browser I recommend to friends, family or clients. Since 10e and the whole multiprocess roll out, I've "fixed" peoples slow and unresponsive FF experience by disabling this useless feature and H/W acceleration.

Now my mailbox is full of complaints about slow unresponsive browsing, plus it using more system resources leaving clients with less powerful machines with real problems.

C'mon Moz, we've been mates for decades, stood by you when everyone was looking at whatever MS was waiving at them, laughed at Google when they tried to play with the big boy, but now I'm feeling sheepish about my claims of Mozilla putting its users needs first, not forcing features on users, giving its users a choice enabling a freedom that you don't have with Edge or Chrome

Please give us back one of the remaining freedoms we have left, don't be MICROSOFT!

And to add insult to injury, it appears where "Open Link in New Window" used to be. I don't use tabbed browsing. Period. I like to hover over the taskbar and let Windows tell me that browser window's URL.

If it can't be suppressed -- because each Firefox user doesn't really know _their_ own preferences -- why not place the "Container Tabs" right-click entry, below "Open Link in New Private Window"? Then users desiring to use such *new* functionality, will learn (muscle-memory don'cha know) it as they go.

Every time y'all force me after an update to figure out how to resume using Firefox in the matter to which I'm accustomed, I move one step closer to shifting to Chrome entirely. (I still use Firefox to access YouTube, because up until several days ago, I was able to download content with a Firefox add-on.)

BTW. I tried to upload a screenshot of the image. The progress icon has been turning for minutes ... It might work on Chrome, but the image upload functionality is broken with version 63.0.1 (x64).

Your "Pocket" ... your "Bookshelf" icon ... etc. ... I wish y'all would let me suppress the display the meg@Kewl new stuff, which I never use.

Hello,

officials confiscated my fast PC leaving me with a old system with following specs:

Intel Core i3-3220 (2 cores with 3,3 Ghz), Windows 10 latest version x64, 4 GB RAM, relativ new Samsung SSD, NVIDIA GT 1030 with drivers not updated in a while.

I have bad memory but I think I have this PC about 4 months and this Firefox problem since 2 months, could be totally different because I have really bad memory.

I thought it might be a extension or a setting so I started with a new profile, unfortunatelly it didn't help.

I think tab switching very often is over 3 seconds, doesn't matter much if there 5 or 15 tabs open, I use Firefox since 2002, recommended it to many people and never had such a big problem like this before.

Version: 62.0.2 (64-bit)

Drag and drop will not work in Firefox but works in all other browsers I have installed. Tried in safe mode but it still won't work. This is getting ridiculous now as there are so many things that you can't now do in Firefox that it's becoming useless ... you HAVE to give users some room to set their own restrictions otherwise the paranoia will turn the browser into a worthless piece of junk

Why have you reenable that bad sites can spam infinite amount of dialogs leaving the user the only option to close FF from the task manager including all the tabs? You had this fixed for years and now it's not working any more. Why even use OS dialogs in the tabs. Layers of stupidity. And you know about redirects? You can't count per url or domain. And it doesn't matter how you count. It's completly flawed. Fix this. This it really annoying.

Firefox is beginning to become more of an annoyance than it is worth - most of the reason for this is the continual string of updates, messages, click bars and pop ups it shows on start up.

No these are not spam or bad add ins, they are programmed interruptions inherent to FF.

Users of FF want to get on and do things. Having to close windows with news about the latest update (and there are soooo many updates), or news that the opml feed is now on your desktop (another thing to waste time attending to) or messages about privacy or messages about syncing pages and settings or pop up messages about how FF is private etc are just plain annoying.

It is getting to the point where I expect to wait longer for FF to start and then have to wade through cruft, than it takes to boot the entire Windows 10 OS and deal with the Ms cruft on the log in screens.

If people want to learn, then they will look stuff up. So seriously - stop popping up tabs, notices, messages, dialog boxes and other cruft. Let the users just get on with using FF rather than putting up with cruft about using FF.

FF is now officially slower to start than every other browser we have and slower than me booting an entire windows 10 pc - all because of continuous updates which don't seem to do anything for me - or most users. oh sure, you can say its for security but if you are patching security holes as regularly as you are updating FF then there is something terribly wrong in your programming standards and coding methodologies - not to mention test process.

Its a trend to tell people about your product - but its one that annoys users. We just want to get on with using whatever - so please get out of our way and let us just use the product.

I like FF - but I liker it a lot less than I used to as its now annoying the crud out of me almost every day.

My 10c worth.

Why firefox force updates itself without the consent of the user from version 42 to 62. It has been a long time between 42 and 62. Yet, firefox is so clumsy not to ask the user of updates. A user cannot keep track of his changes for 2.5 years. In this case firefox should have the courtesy to ask the customer to ins tall updates but it does not. Slyness. Including google.

I know the support forum isn't the best place for this, but I really don't know how else to get people's thoughts on this. I get the impression the Devs have no idea how or why some people use Firefox.

I've been using Firefox on and off before it was even at version 1.0. When I started working at a big company in 2008 with a locked-down IT policy, Firefox had me 100% covered, and did everything I could ever dream of wanting it to do.

In the last year or two, key features that always made it a winner have slowly been disappearing, and now it has gotten to the point that it is actually barely any better than IE11, and no different than Chrome. Why? Big reason is now addons don't work, or can't work the way they used to/need to, but it goes beyond that.

1. I can no longer have my homepage open, when I load a new tab. This is absolutely mind boggling, even internet explorer can do that! NOTE: My homepage is a webpage saved on my harddrive that I made that gives me quick access to everything I need to do for work. I used to be able to load it natively, then it became something that required an add-on, and now it is completely broken, and impossible to do.

2. Devs clearly don't understand the concept of a PROXY. Lots of people (i.e. in corporate environments) have everything go through a proxy. I can't even use the firefox installer anymore (as I discovered yesterday) because it requires a direct connection to the internet.

3. Speaking of Proxy issues, when I open firefox, it immediately needs to connect to the internet, resulting in proxy authentication pop-ups. These used to be Auto-accepted with the addon AUTO-AUTH, however with the new web API crap this apparently isn't possible. There are settings in firefox that are supposed to auto-accept proxy-logins, but they don't work. So - I'm stuck hitting enter every single time I open the bloody program. There is no way to delay or stop firefox from automatically trying to connect to the internet which is also stupid.

4. I could go on, but what's the point... the Devs don't care. Time to go back to FF v51 or whatever version it was before things went so wrong and hang on to that, with my windows 7 installation. Sigh.

All I see in these community things are The QUESTIONS on the topic but NO SOLUTION. WHAT happened to Firefox, it used to actually WORK! Now it just ignores what I say and does it anyway. I have it checked and unchecked where it is suppose to be so that it DOES NOT update! YET it still does it! SO when is Firefox going to give SOLUTIONS instead of just adding another question to the same stuff... we know a lot of people are having the same problem... SO when are you guys going to wake up and FIX IT!

My FireFox just updated after closing and reopening it, and the videos would play, as in there'd be sound and the progress bar would be moving, but the picture would be black. I got an extension to enable switching between Flash and HTML5, but at best it just makes the playback really choppy and having to stop every 3 or so seconds, for about 2 seconds at a time, making videos unwatchable.

And no, this isn't a problem with my computer. The videos were working just fine this morning, literally just before the update, and had these problems afterward. Videos play fine on both IE and Chrome, which I just downloaded (had been using it off and on). When IE outperforms a browser in something, you know there's a problem. It is absolutely not my computer's problem since I'm enjoying the normal video playback that I was before, only on Chrome. With internet speeds of 20 Ping, 92.96 Mbps download, and 15.82 Mbps upload, I know it's not suddenly my connection. The videos are playing choppier on FireFox than when I had 8 Mbps download speed and about 0.1 Mbps upload.

I don't wanna go through a whole lot of rigamarole to get something to work, when I now have a perfectly working browser in the form of Chrome. I'm just gonna wait for FireFox to get its s*** together, and fix something that IT broke. I'm perfectly fine not using it until then. I'm not gonna put myself through tons of hassle for problems that FireFox itself has caused. This is just to maybe bring it to their attention that this is an issue that's occurring, and if I sound a bit annoyed, this is more civil than I originally felt.

Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.

It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.

Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO. So basically Firefox is only useful to me if

  • I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
  • For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.

For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.

On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)

1 Cookie Controller

2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

3 Session Manager

4 New Add On Bar

5 Add Bookmarks Here

6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab

8 Download Status Bar

9 AutoPin Tab

10 Close Tab Button

11 Tab Open/Close Control

12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.

Any practical advice?

EVERY time I run Firefox it tells me an update is available and asks to update. However, updates to firefox are handled through an external package manager so there is no reason for it to keep harassing me. Up until v.63 this was not a problem as I simply clicked "never check for updates" and let the package manager handle it - as it should. Now some bozo has decided to remove that and try to force an update that will completely screw up my package manager. WTF Mozilla! Are you trying to decrease your user base? Give us back the option to control our updates!

And who cares? The old version worked just fine. I wish every time one of you techies come back from the bathroom with some new idea that you’d just keep it to yourself! Obfuscation and more clicks is NOT GOOD PROGRAMING!!! Also – screen popup does not adjust to screen on laptop – “done” button hidden behind taskbar. And the graphics/info space on top (of the bookmark save dropdown Ctrl D) is wasted and not useful and takes up too much space/real estate.
