Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

There is one menu short in a screen, when I use Firefox to my bank. The file "2021-02-14.png" is missing a menu with "Forbrugsoverblik Forbrugsagenter Etiketter" on black background. The file "2021-02-14(1).png" is the same <prt sc> but in Edge browser. The file "2021-02-14(2).png" is the same but in Crome.

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

I can't send any links, because you need to be logged in.

I use 85.0.2-64bit on a Windows 10 PC.

For the last month or so, when I click on any of the headline links from the news.google homepage, I'm shown only a blank page. No error message. The url looks normal.

-The links all work when I use Edge.

-I do have Add-ons, but I turned them all off, restarted Firefox, and the links still fail. Any remedies? Suggestions? Some setting I don't know about?

So after the wonderful weather the east coast has got over the past few days. Internet is out with no eta when it will be fixed. So I have to use apple hotspot. Ive noticed on firefox I only get up to 2.5 mbps download speeds. If I do a speed test it shows 36 to 44 mbps . Booted onto my old ssd drive with the same version of windows ten and as far as I know firefox. Firefox works fine on that drive. Ive also found out microsoft edge also works fine on my main m.2 ssd . I have no idea why firefox would be so slow, its like its limiting my speeds . But I checked and the throttling is turned off. I tried to uninstall firefox and reinstall didn't help.

I have no idea why speed test.net shows im getting 40+ mbps and youtube videos or just surfing the web is stuck at 2.5 mbps. any help or ideas would be great. Thanks.

Beginning with Firefox 85, I have been unable to log in to my NYTimes account.

When I do go through the log in procedure, it appears to work, but then, when I am taken aback to the NYT home page, it shows that I am not logged in.

Appreciate any help anyone can provide.

Hello

I have installed the dictionary for another language and when I right click the menu is there, however if I try to change the language it disappears. If I click again it's gone.

I have tried that if I disable UBlock Origin, the menu comes up, but I am not able to change language anyway. If I refresh, the menu disappears again.

Greetings,

After a recent upgrade, i noticed that i can't browse to certain website using firefox, however if I used chrome or any other browser it i can.

after troubleshooting, noticed that in firepower (firewall I am using), the requests are using "ultrasurf client" image attached. Thus application gets blocked.

Made sure I don't have any "ultrasurf" plugin / addon installed, I even tested with running firefox in safemode but still same issue.

I also noticed that when I try to load a site, the connection doesn't go to that website IP but to one of cloudflare IPs. DOH is disabled, I and blocked all Cloudflare connections on the firewall.

Has anyone noticed this with their firefox ?

Version 86 DOH Disabled Firepower detects Ultrasurf client Connections are made to Cloudflare ips (Specifically to the range 104.16.0.0/12)

I couldn't find this so I worked it out myself... post this as a fix for others!

TROUBLE: I have had problems with scrolling down using the scroll bar on reddit and elsewhere. When it got near the bottom it would uncontrollably jump back up not allowing me to get to the bottom of the page whether I held it with the cursor or not.

FIX: Go into options, general, browsing and turn off SMOOTH SCROLLING and AUTO SCROLLING.
