After 89.0.1 update on Windows, Firefox will not release the audio device, not allowing the computer to sleep.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

Spontaneously, Firefox is now unable to load certain websites properly: Twitter won't show tweets, streaming websites won't play, and sites like Wikipedia have lost their formatting. Other websites seem completely unaffected, like YouTube, Pinterest, and news sites. This is only happening on Firefox, as my other browsers are unaffected, but Firefox is my default and I don't want to have to switch.

I've tried restarting both the browser and my PC, clearing the cache, turning off my firewall and anti-virus, disabled add-ons, and unregistered service worker... I'm out of ideas.

I've included some images to show what I mean.

Hello community,

Not really big issue but it make me crazy sometimes...

I use few sites from RU (yandex.ru) top level domain and some of them have a domains in other locations (for example COM, LT). With latest updates FF switching RU top level domain to local one (LT) in the address bar dropdown.

There was an update around 5 months ago which make this change. And Later (maybe month ago) it was returned to normal behavior (domain was the one I using frequently). Now with latest update it happens again :(

I have 2 PCs, I updated FF at one of them and I get this behavior back. The other one have outdated version and there is no domain swap (version 89.0.2, Windows at both PCs)

Hi. Firefox is my main browser, installed and signed in on a handful of devices. The share menu has a nice option to "Send To Device" to send a specific tab to another device. I do that, get a confirmation toast that the Tab has been sent... but where can I find it on the target device ? It doesn't open right away (which is what I'd prefer), and I can't find it anywhere else ?

I tried from Android to Android, from Windows to Android, from Android to Windows... Sending a tab is nice, actually finding it on the target device would be nicer ^^

For about a month, google products on firefox randomly stop working.

- I get the "Oops...error #001" in gmail, when i reload it just continues to get an error cycle until eventually it goes to network protocol error.

- Google search randomly does not work at all in the url/search bar, and once it doesn't work the tab is useless. Putting in another URL and hitting enter it appears to have loaded but of course nothing has changed.

- I have no extensions installed.

Okay, so just as I have stated in the subject, this is my direct experience at this time. I've found on the forum people having trouble saving .html, but those were other issues unrelated to Firefox. I cannot find specific reports relating to my issue. To those, if you see this, who saved your web pages to .html (only or complete), did you open those files to check that you could read them? The unreliability of browsers in the past leads me to distrust this expectation that saved data is done and preserved without checking/validating.

Here is what I did. I saved a page (and for sake of accuracy and precision, it was search results from duckduckgo.com) to an .htm file. (Again, for sake of accuracy, I'll insert here that Windows Save As dialog box provides the "Save as type:" options list, which are: "Text Files", "Web Page, complete", and "Web Page, HTML only".) I chose "Web Page, HTML only"; now, while it says "HTML", Firefox creates the default extension of ".htm", so this is the extension used; and I simply used the default filename, no changes. Then, I simply went to my "Recent Items" menu in Start menu and opened the just saved file. It opens to a blank page, except for a very small text box with my search query in it and two little tiny buttons next to it; the content of the page is not displayed. (And, after post analysis, the file size was 7kb, which indicates that it did not really save all the data of the page content.) I then tried opening the file on a different computer with Firefox - same result. I also opened the same file with Chrome - same result. At least there is consistency here. Therefore, the conclusion must be that Firefox is not saving correctly.

There is no help to be given in this case, as I have done nothing wrong. I have done exactly as instructed by and to others in other forum posts and as described in other help pages on how to save web pages to a file. Everyone talks about the actions of how to do; but not about the results of reading saved output.

So, I make the post in hopes that this get to the developers to fix this problem. If this does not happen on all computers or in all situations (for all web pages) ... well, I think it still lies with Mozilla to fix it, because here is one case where it positively does not work! If my situation is unique, I do not know why ... and if it works for others (to save from duckduckgo) then I don't know why ... again, not for me to figure out; just take it as fact, this action of saving web pages in Firefox does not always work.

Thanks.

PS - I'm using SingleFile as an alternative work around (but I don't see why the "Save As" should not have worked perfectly for all of web browser history).

Good Day, We really like FireFox, after using it over recent years. However, this year it appears to be numerous problems. We do not load many thing on our computers, because the computer is there for our work not games or other uses. Our downloads are kept to a minimum, we use virus protection, and scan regularly enough.

FF freezes, too slow, and too regularly reminding of updates. So we dismiss, to avoid work disruption. So now when we do update, we are losing saved passwords, looks so it is not apparent which browser is up, and it is getting uncomfortable to use.

What happened this year?
