Hi I am running Firefox 103 on my lenovo thinkpad T570 running windows 10. Streaming any video (e.g. BBC iPlayer or GCN+ or any source I have tried) Video very choppy, freezes for several seconds while audio continues as normal. this is essentially unusable. Task manager shows firefox running at 70% or more I have tried all the power management settings and that makes no difference. The Nvidia Gforce940 appears not to be used at all. All my drivers are up to date I have tried firefox troubleshoot mode, which makes no difference full screen mode or not makes no difference (its a 4k screen so I wondered if it was doing some kind of upscaling) makes no difference whether I run on external monitor or internal. Also makes no difference whether the laptop is connected to my thunderbolt dock or not. I can run the same content side by side in Chrome. Chrome displays the video smoothly with no glitches at all and consumes around 16% CPU (still no Nvidia GPU utilisation)

This problem does not happen on my other PC, a 5 year old Intel NUC, with i5 cpu, also running win 10 connected to my TV.

If i can't fix this I will have to very reluctantly revert to Chrome for video streaming I havent worked uot how to obtain the troubleshooting info to share but happy to do this if necessary

many thanks John

I go to Yahoo.com for email several times daily. I rarely go to Youtube.com .

I believe the order that url suggestions (and autocomplete) come up has changed in one of Firefox's updates and now, as soon as I type the "y", Firefox suggests Youtube.com . I go to Yahoo.com a hundred times for any one time I might visit Youtube and Yahoo would come first alphabetically so I would assume it would "suggest" Yahoo before Youtube.

My guess is that Firefox decides on which site is more popular during daily browsing but this was not the case before.

I have tried several methods to attempt to control the order the suggestions appear but Youtube still autocompletes as soon as I type the "y".

Any way to change this to my liking? Or is this just the way it is and will be?

I've attached a screenshot but I edited it to obliterate a few id's and personal information from the example url's.

Hi Firefox

For the past few updates you have changed your user interface (UI) from time to time and I have to say I am not really a fan of any of the new ones. However, it was once possible to get some add ons like "classic theme restorer 1.4.5" to restore the older more compact and efficient look of firefox. However, I can't find any of those sort of add ons anymore and trying to manually change the look, revert settings and so many more options suggested on the internet is clunky, inefficient and quite frustrating to try and make work.

Is there any way to revert the UI back to a more classic look like in Firefox 89 (or the one from the verison attached in the image) rather than these newer "messy" ones, or will you hopefullt implement a function in the future where one can select an older UI for the browser? I can see from forums, discussions and more online that I am not the only one who wishes there was a way to get an older UI back as the newer ones, in my opinion are no way near as good as the older ones.

Hope you can help with this

Best Regards Klaus

Recently Firefox started "crashing." It would be running just fine, and then websites would just stop loading. If I clicked a link or searched for something, it would be stuck loading until I restarted Firefox. I tried restarting my computer as well, but that didn't work either, as the issue just came back within a few hours.

Sooo I went to google to search for answers. I got to a forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/881250) that seemed promising, and edited my network.http.max-connections value from 900 to 48, as the chosen answer suggested. I figured if it didn't work, I could always just change it back.

How wrong I was.

Not only did it not work, it prevented me from doing anything. Now when I open Firefox, nothing loads. I can see the toolbar, search bar, and my bookmarks, but the actual screen is blank. No widgets with my frequently visited sites and some news stories, no homepage, just blankness. When I enter a url or do a random search or even try to open about:config, nothing happens. It doesn't even show a loading icon.

I attempted to refresh Firefox, but it got stuck in the loading stage, which I attributed to my already breaking it somehow. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But no dice. It's still entirely unresponsive.

Any help would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm largely computer illiterate!

I haven't used this laptop (Win10) in a few days, but FFox just updated to 103.0.2 and the icon in the taskbar is no longer there. It's a "blank page" looking thing. Wow. After years of having FFox in my taskbar, I'm surprised by how disorienting this is. LOL.

I unpinned from the taskbar, and the icon appeared for a half second before it went away. Re-pinned, and the blank page icon is back. Creating a shortcut for the desktop works just fine, but I'm used to the taskbar.

Obviously, I can deal with this, but I thought y'all should know that this broke in the last update. At least, for me, it did.

Thanks,

Hello

I am continuing to fail logging in to my Netspend.com account. I am logging in with the correct Username and Password recognized by NetSpend. I have removed the cache. I have investigated if cookies relative to this NetSpend address are blocked. None are. NetSpend support shows no error with my account, on their computers. And, they have no control of cookies.

Would you suggest what I can modify to be successful in logging into my account in NetSpend.com from my Desktop computer ?

NetSpend technical support suggested not to SAVE my Password or Username, having Firefox as my operating browser, proposing Firefox will revert to a former password, unseen by me; thereby not allowing me entry into my NetSpend account.

At "https://www.delta.com/login/loginPage?staticurl=" (login to delta.com) there's a user name field. When I click on it Firefox suggests the username. I don't want the username exposed this way because I use the 1Password password manager to fill in usernames.

In Settings "Logins and Passwords" it says "1Password – Password Manager controls this setting". "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is not checked, and "Autofil logins and passwords" is checked but the option is pale blue instead of bright blue and cannot be changed.

How can I stop FF from exposing my username?

I got a new computer running windows 11.

I installed Firefox as my default browser. I then noticed the address bar performing search which is annoying as hell and actually and interferes with productivity as I use search. Basically, I have to redo searches after the address bar. It is problematic. The one off search from address bar according to last survey only 26% of users like it. rest want it gone.

As for me, I have tried the solution of Keyword set to false and the browser url oneoff also set to false.

I saw another suggested item of turn off keyword search. However, that item does not have an off button or switch within Windows 11. Just check marks of the suggested keywords that developers installed into the field when downloaded. I unchecked all the items as that was the only change I could do. So, there is no keyword selected. I closed all browser windows and restarted Firefox.

The address bar search still occurs. This make the previous question and answer solution invalid as of August 12, 2022.

I consider this a BUG and a major development of Firefox browser failure. When I search, I am looking for generally wide range of results and alternative search options are better than specific one off search. Best example; What is difference between Clementines and Mandarins? As a one off search you get one set of results. When you use the proper search box of a search engine, you get totally different results that are more useful and less time consuming to know the full range of answers, history, physical traits as well as other items not considered in the address bar search. In the search engine box, you do get the address bar search items. However, they always are 6 to 20 down the list of preferred or most useful. However, the address bar search results do not have all the top 5 items from the search engine search. It is a matter of how the address bar does the search that is at issue. For whatever reason, the results are not as good as direct input. You will have to determine through investigation why that is. However, that is a year's worth of investigation if anyone would do it. In the mean time, this address bar search needs a simple button that does all the changes necessary to make it stop!

Additionally, I find multiple related search options that are given by search engines extremely helpful when looking for related type of searches. This is something that the address bar search can not do and was never designed or allowed to do. Thus, it causes loss of productivity.

As such and because it does cause loss of productivity, it is a BUG and by law, Mozilla must remove items or provide easy solution to stop productivity failure.

The current solution does not work. That means Mozilla must provide an update immediately to make this feature go away for those who find it annoying, useless or interference with productivity!
