I am using Firefox v125.0.2. When I open a PDF in Firefox it takes a lot of time to load. But, when the same PDF opened in the Edge browser it loads normally and scrolling through PDF pages renders fast. I have shared the screenshot of a single-page pdf loading taking quite a long time.

Could someone please help me with this.

Hello, since the latest version of Firefox, as always, it breaks now if I want to enter instantgaming or it does not enter no matter how much I click on enter or in kinguin.net, when it asks me for the recapcha, it stays in an infinite loop and does not show the images. .

I have done safe mode and installed firefox from 0 and nothing, it is tedious that at this point a browser that has been having this type of problems for years because in opera, edge they do not give me these errors, it is tiring to always have to have a browser that fails due to anything.

I look forward to your help, thank you

WebGL creation failed after reinstalling lbgl1* libegl*

I am using the apt version of firefox v125.0.2 (64-bit). I do not have a dedicated GPU - I use my intel core's internal gpu only Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 (rev 02).

I used to play this game named narrow.one, which before I reinstalled the mentioned libraries, was working fine except for crashing a few times. I thought these libraries were causing some issue, so I tried reinstalling them.

I reinstalled the libraries using: `sudo apt install --reinstall --fix-missing libgl1* libegl*`

After installation, I start getting that error. So, I tried reinstalling firefox (using the same command), and then restarting the laptop - but of no use. Chrome seems to be running WebGL, including the game.

In firefox, on the https://get.webgl.org/ page, I see Hmm. While your browser seems to support WebGL, it is disabled or unavailable. If possible, please ensure that you are running the latest drivers for your video card.

After that, I also tried reinstalling `libopengl0` and `libglu1-mesa` and `intel-microcode`, but of no use. Running although, `sudo intel_gpu_top` and then chrome, it seems that the GPU is in use by chrome as well.

I then go to about:support. It shows me the images I have attached. Reading the logs, there several `blocklisted` values in `Decision Log` section. I suspect that's the cause of this issue, but then I don't know how can I un-blocklist the blocklisted things, and even after that, why does Chrome runs webgl if these are blocklisted?

Running `glxinfo -B`, I get the following: `name of display: :0 display: :0 screen: 0 direct rendering: Yes Extended renderer info (GLX_MESA_query_renderer):

   Vendor: Intel (0x8086)
   Device: Mesa Intel(R) HD Graphics 620 (KBL GT2) (0x5916)
   Version: 23.2.1

   Unified memory: yes
   Preferred profile: core (0x1)

OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 3.2 Mesa 23.2.1-1ubuntu3.1 OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 3.20`

I do not know much about OpenGL, but reading the above stuff, I suppose my GPU is in use and also has a compatible driver (although I am not sure).

Also, running `glxdemo`, `glxheads`, and `glxgears` seems to be rendering stuff.

Should I reinstall firefox after purging it first? Please help.

Thanks!

Lately, when I'm on a website and click into an article to read, suddenly the McAfee anti-virus ad or whatever you call intrudes and takes over the browser page I'm on and won't allow me to navigate way or stop it unless I close the browser tab and/or navigate away from the page all together.

Why is this happening? Is it something in the my particular browser? If yes, how can I remove and prevent this from happening?

Is it something that is occurring on the server of the site I'm visiting? Should I notify them what is happening?

Any help and advice greatly appreciated. It is very annoying. I don't have McAfee installed and it's not a pop-up, it happens within the browser page itself.

Thank you,

Marty

Firefox 125.0.2 on Mac

When I press shift+cmd+D to bookmark all open tabs, instead of the links being saved to the designated folder, they are all saved to "Bookmarks Menu". The designated folder itself also appears with these links but it itself is empty.

I would expect shift+cmd+D to bookmark all links in the folder and the folder to appear in "Bookmarks Menu". This is what use to happen ages ago. I'm not sure what caused the change in behavior. Anyone have any ideas on fixing this?

I'd like to be able to open a link in private mode by holding down some modifier key, then clicking on the link. There are many times that I want to open a link in private mode, and a keypress + click would be the quickest way to do it given that one hand typically remains at the keyboard while I use the mouse/trackpad.

I've even added a toolbar button to open a new private browsing window, then dragged and dropped a link onto the button, but that gets a circle with slash icon and nothing more.

Others have asked this question, so, to be clear, none of the following address my question: copying the link then opening the private browsing window & pasting the link, using a customized shortcut/bookmark, opening Firefox in private mode via command line, right-clicking the link then selecting "Open link in new private window".

Thanks for any advice and thank you, Mozilla, for Firefox!

So I noticed an issue with certain websites a few days ago. I was trying to make a hair appointment online, it was asking me to fill in my email, and the box wouldn't let me click on it. I used a different browser, and it worked just fine. Same thing today: I was trying to make a lab appointment, the next step was verifying I'm not a robot, I clicked the box, and it had a loading circle eternally. I tried it on a different browser, and it worked within seconds, no loading. I've never had this issue with Firefox before! I tried clearing my cookies and cache, and that didn't do anything unfortunately. Let me know what I can do to fix this problem! I normally loved Firefox and it's my main browser, so I'm hoping to resolve this issue. Thanks so much!

I've recently started using the Tree Style Tab extension, and I'm finding it useful, but I'd like it if the list of tabs could be automatically hidden when only one tab is open (and automatically shown when more than one tab is open).

I hoped to write an extension to do this, but opening the sidebar from an extension requires a user gesture, so I suspect I'll have to use a userchrome.js script.

From a "userchrome.js"-like environment (i.e. unsandboxed AutoConfig), I can hide and show the sidebar with `SidebarUI.hide()` and `SidebarUI.show("treestyletab_piro_sakura_ne_jp-sidebar-action")`, and I can examine the tabs open in the current window via `gBrowser.tabs`, but I can't see how to get notified when the number of tabs changes (replacing `gBrowser.tabs` with a proxy doesn't work, for example). I suppose I could just check every few seconds? That feels like a bit of a cop-out, though, and gets more and more inefficient the more windows are open.

There's an API for extensions to receive events when tabs open and close, so clearly this is possible. Where should I be looking for this functionality?

(I also don't know how I would go about unregistering an event listener (or cancelling a setInterval call!) when the window closes, assuming that's necessary to avoid leaking resources – is there an event like `chrome-document-global-created` I could listen for, but that fires during teardown of the window rather than when one is created?)

So I'm having issues playing 4K videos fully on one YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@ClearviewDriving

For some reason anything above 1080p gives me bad stuttering but on other channels videos don't stutter or freeze when playing 1440p or 4K quality.

Firefox is updated, I don't use Extensions other than Ad Blocker and I have that off on YouTube anyway. Seems strange that it'd only affect one specific channel.

I have a very good gaming PC too so the hardware isn't the issue.
