I'm running Debian Stretch and the packaged version of Firefox (91) runs fine but seems a bit dated. I installed ver. 104 manually and everything is fine except that there is no audio. I changed the setup Privacy and Security Autoplay to 'Allow Audio and Video' -- no audio. I've restarted in troubleshoot mode -- no audio. Other browsers, including ver. 91 of Firefox have no trouble with audio. Any ideas? On quitting I get these messages:

On bootup firefox opens a single window which says the following:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

The restore function succeeds in restoring 6 windows from the prior session, but this notice keeps appearing on every bootup.

Here are a few relevant details from about: config

  • browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes (is set to 1)
  • browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash (is set to true)
  • No 3rd party third party cleaning software
  • Two extensions, tab stash and tree tabs
  • There are no entries in about:crash for this event

Have been using Firefox from 2004 with 5-10 open windows which appear on bootup as they existed from the prior session. This is the first occurance of this error. Appreciate your support. Here are a few system details:

1.) 28gb ram 2.) Linux ~ LMDE 5 (Elsie) 3.) Firefox ESR 115.8 (oesr) 64 bit.

Using Firefox 100.0.1. Debian Linux. Dell 1525 with 4G ram.

When playing a certain mp3 file in the browser, if I use the arrow keys, or the mouse, to skip forward or back, there is no response, but the audio stops playing for a period of time, then, finally it starts playing again at the spot it was before.

This does not happen with this file in Chrome, or in VLC. Also, with other mp3s it does not happen in Firefox.

I finally got it to work by converting the file to ogg vorbis, but this is not something I want to make a practice of..

I imported the file back into Audacity, and re-exported it as an mp3. Same result.

Weird... Any ideas?

Thanks,

I use Firefox on Linux Debian 11 (Bullseye). After a recent automatic update to Firefox 91.10.0esr, some websites will not load (just sit with a blank page, showing flicking loading symbol). Examples are ocado.com and abelandcole.co.uk. I have tried all the usual things to fix, including, switching off VPN, clearing cookies and caches, running in safe mode, all with no success. Both sites run fine in Vivaldi and Brave. I have eventually got the pages to load by disabling IPv6 in Firefox. Clearly there is a problem with 91.10.0esr. I'm not sure whether the workaround of disabling IPv6 might cause other problems or weaken security or privacy?

After some time of idle, i.e. leave the computer for some time, say over night. No suspend or hibernate. Back to the computer next morning, unlock. Then Firefox appears frozen/hang, can't switch tab (clicking tab has no response, but not really frozen, sometimes responses after dozens of seconds of lag), page also has no response. Then after around half to 2 minutes, everything back to normal.

During the "hang", CPU load is load, no memory stress (swapping/paging).

Environment:

Hello, have been scratching my head for a while on this one. Have a freshly setup install of Debian 12, using Sway (wayland) as my Window Manager. I am really struggling with slowness in Firefox, page loads take easily 15 seconds whereas loading the exact same page in another window at the same time with Chromium Debian build has near instantaneous load times. I've tried the following troubleshooting steps: - Created a new firefox profile - Tried "Troubleshooting Mode" in Firefox - Disabled ipv6 in firefox about:config and in Debian - Tried different DNS servers - Tried different non-debian specific builds of Firefox - Tried Firefox Beta and Firefox Nightly for Debian

None of these steps made any difference, and Chromium has continued to be significantly faster. Am really stuck here and would love to get to the bottom of this as Firefox is the only browser that works with a HiDPI display in Sway without blurryness. Happy to provide any and all diagnostics and reports that are needed. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: It seems to be some kind of networking issue, using a VPN solves it. But still doesn't explain why Chromium would behave differently.

Hi Folk,

Firefox runs perfectly smooth in 3840x2160, so this is not a perf issue. However when switching from onboard laptop screen (2k) to my external WQHD screen, Firefox does not refresh, not reacting to input or mouse until I switch back and forth from another window. So it only refresh/repaint when main window looses and gets focus.

I have to restart firefox to make it works again.

Configuration: Linux debian stable (11) (same on PopOS) CPU: intel 8550 / GPU: Intel HD 620 RAM: 16Gb External monitor connected through usb-c 3.1

It does the same with Thunderbird. My Qt apps and terminals (alacritty) are not impacted.

Updated. See bottom for up-to-date question.

Hello! :) I'm on a pretty fresh install of Debian bullseye. Immediately after launching Firefox ESR, it crashes. Not always, but every ~2nd launch. The Mozilla Crash Reporter "We're Sorry" appears and the crash looks like this in terminal: mars@desktop:~/Desktop$ firefox ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 83677 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... mars@desktop:~/Desktop$

I tried making a fresh profile without addons/settings, and it still crashes but less at every ~6-7th launch. However, it does not crash in safe mode, though visiting websites while in safe mode is laggy. Here is the terminal of safe-mode: Missing chrome or resource URL: resource://gre/modules/UpdateListener.jsm Missing chrome or resource URL: resource://gre/modules/UpdateListener.sys.mjs Missing chrome or resource URL: resource://gre/modules/UpdateListener.jsm Missing chrome or resource URL: resource://gre/modules/UpdateListener.sys.mjs Sandbox: Unexpected EOF, op 0 flags 00 path /proc/cpuinfo

Any idea? Thanks in advance!

Extra observations:

  • Didn't have these issues with Firefox on Fedora (Wayland) and Gentoo.
  • Toggling Caps Lock takes about half a second to activate/deactivate in Firefox, resulting in a lot of accidentally capitalized letters.
  • Generally, Firefox seems pretty slow and scrolling through items/websites with images is a bit choppy. Websites load slower compared to my forementioned distros.
  • Not sure if it matters, but I installed Debian with automatic/guided (encrypted LVM) and noticed after that my swap size is only 980 MB when my RAM is 16 GB. Just mentioning it in case it's relevant.

System info:

  • DE: XFCE with x11.
  • Kernel: 5.10.0-21-amd64.
  • GPU: NVIDIA contrib non-free driver. Force Composition Pipeline ON. Allow Flipping OFF. TripleBuffer ON.
  • CPU: Intel i5 6600K

UPDATE: I found the cause of the crash. If I enable Use hardware acceleration when available, Firefox crashes on launch. If I disable it, it doesn't crash which is nice. BUT, it leads to unbearable lag and puts my CPU usage to 70-100% when dealing with videos or images. This exact thing happens on two fresh installs on different SSDs.

Any advice? Do I need some additional drivers for my Debian install? Thanks!

Info:

  • Debian Bullseye.
  • Firefox ESR 102.10.0.
  • GTX 970 w/ proprietary nvidia-driver.
  • GNOME on X11.

I need some things to look at. Debian 11.4 Bullseye 16 CPU 72GB I just got the Mate desktop working. Thought I'd find a cool wallpaper. Site said it needed to load an extension. I tried to escape but now my firefox fails to load even in troubleshoot mode. It builds the window frame I can almost touch the menu and gone.

Checked .mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ and it's empty checked .mozilla/extensions/ and it's emtpy Got an install time InstallTime20220718130424

as I click on Firefox Icon in menu the screen pops alert that says: "Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting....try to resolve the problem in troubleshooting in SafeMode."

tailing syslog: tail -f /var/log/syslog gives this clue: oom-kill:constraint=CONTRAINT_NONE, task=firefox-esr total-vm:672432kb Kernel Out Of Memory killed process pgtables:840kb oom-score_addj:0

I can add more detail if I know where to look. OOM with 72GB ?

Graphical Glitches and video freezing - Firefox 102.3.0esr-1~deb10u2 (Debian 10)

Every time I login to my desktop it tries to restore Firefox and in turn Firefox tries to restore it's session, however all I get is a mess of graphical glitches, the interface doesn't even load, I get a window border and usually a copy of the KDE splash screen. I then have to kill the process, which of course means it looses my session so when I re-open it I get nothing, all my open tabs are gone and there is no restore session option.

Further, it can't even play streaming videos properly anymore. After one or two episodes of a TV show its lagging sometimes by minutes, eaten gigs of ram and the video often gets stuck, the audio helpfully carries on with a frame of video from about 5 minutes ago. This is not an exaggeration, I had a YouTube video where it changed to a graph with a voice over, after 5 minutes I started to notice the voice over was talking about things not on that graph and sure enough the video had frozen. Its an i9 10850K with 32GB of RAM. The previous version of Firefox didn't mind restoring a session with over 350 tabs and plenty were videos, this one can't handle 2 when one is a video without freezing or locking up the whole browser.

No other apps/ programs on this PC are having any issues, it is only happening in Firefox, I can for example open a media player and play a video just fine while the video is stuck in the browser or it has the graphic glitches. I also tried opening another instance of Firefox while it had the graphical issue, the new instance started and created a new entry on the task bar, but switching to it gave the same display as the broken one, I can't tell you what tabs either had open as nothing inside the window was rendered at all, not even the menu bar which I set to always being visible.
