The Problem: I recently noticed that decoding youtube videos in 2160p60fps is choppy beyond recognition.

Diagnose: While playing said videos in firefox i was able to observe in the task manager that actually none of my graphics cards video decoding capabilities were used. At lower video qualities/resolutions the hardware accelerated video decoding of the graphics card was also not kicking in, but in these cases my cpu was still able to cope with the decoding load, so I never noticed the missing hardware acceleration. To narrow the origin of problem down I tried watching the same videos in edge, chrome and even downloaded a short 2160p60fps clip to play with VLC and everything worked fine, just not in my favorite browser firefox :(

What i already did trying to solve the problem (in order): -Restart Firefox without addons -Refresh Firefox -Create a new Profile

Additional Info: Nvidia Driver Version 441.20

If there is anymore useful info I'm more than happy to provide it.

Thanks for taking the time reading this an providing help.

Hi,

I know you have all seen this question before but none of the answers I have found work for me. My site loads perfectly fine in other browser, just not Firefox.

I have a local website with a style sheet that is saved in the same folder:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />

I have defined the character sets in the HTML and CSS documents:

HTML = CSS = @charset "UTF-8";

I have both the latest updates for Chrome, IE and Firefox as of today.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

So yeah the tittle is pretty self-explanatory: whenever I go to a website playing a medai (music, or video) firefox becomes super slow, and the sound starts to crash / shutter. I'm on windows 10, latest Firefox 59.

For example when I go and lauch a youtube video, the first few seconds of the video are impossible to understand because it's so laggy and bugged. I really don't know what to do. Here's a non-exaustive list of what I've tried so far: - Disabling hardware accelaration - Updating Adobe Flash - Updating my sound drivers - Updating my windows - Switching to the beta version firefox 60 - Making a clean install of my Firefox and refreshing it - Disabling OpenGL - Scanning my computer for viruses (nope)

Anyway maybe I forgot some stuff because I did a lot of things before asking this question, so if anyone has an idea... I'm all ears.

I have had 1-click Youtube video downloader addon installed for a little while now and it has always worked well. However, recently I tried to change to a different addon (in fact several different ones) but the Download button then disappeared.

Programming in PHP. kind of a form (actually it is not a form but it uses form elements - js is used to submit.) When submitting, data is stored in session variable, and the page is reloaded, same form is shown, with data modified (formattet different). This shows data the way the user typed them - not the way PHP formats them.

Useless.

And yes, I have verified, with a different display section, that PHP is actually doing what it's supposed to - but firefox does not display data in input lines, the way they are programmed - they do not display the programmed value, but the value the user typed last time.

Likewise the web tool, does not show the actual sourcecode, but a modified version of it. Selecting "View Source" does not give the same source as "Inspect element"....

A couple versions back, I started getting this pop-up message each morning, "Firefox can't update to the latest version". I downloaded a newer version and upgraded manually a couple times, now up to 70.0, and the pop-up keeps happening. I see a couple other people have reported a similar problem, one here was blown off because they were, supposedly, running a beta version. I'm not running beta. The other one I found was fixed by doing something to the registry, but I'm on Linux, not MS Windows so there's no registry (at least none that I know about).

The one other symptom I've noticed is that when I bring up the "About Firefox" window, it takes a really long time to figure out that "Firefox is up to date". And it always says it's up to date (if I wait long enough) even when there's a newer version available.

It would be greatly helpful if that pop-up would say *why* it couldn't update itself but it does not give any useful information.

Thanks for any help on this.

Hi,

I have a spr532 card reader with a test smartcard with Firefox 50.1.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 up to date. I want to use the client certificate from the device to log in on a website that I am developing.

I also have a test certificate that I generated and it is not on the card. I can log in with the test certificate that I have but not with the one on the card. The problem is that in the "User identification request" page I cannot see the certificate from the smartcard. I can see my generated certificate but not the one on the smartcard. Firefox asks me for the pins for the smartcard (I have two certs on the card and they both have PINs). Firefox sees my certs from the smartcard in about:preferences#advanced > View Certificates > Your Certificates column. I have both the certs on the smartcard and the one I generated in that table. But when I try to log in, Firefox only shows me my generated cert and not the one from the smartcard.

What can I do? How can I debug this? This is a dev environment. I can change any configs on the server so I can decrypt the TLS session and see what is going on between my server and the browser.

PS: I tried to send this message with 2 other email accounts but I do not get the confirmation email.

Thank you!

Hello,

Everything was running completely fine in Firefox and then all of a sudden it simply stopped displaying .swf files. Where they should be is simply blank. On websites with a background I can see the background through where the .swf file should be. This includes opening locally saved files as well as every website with a .swf file that's supposed to play.

I do mean suddenly quite literally, as it was right in the middle of a browsing session. I changed nothing, just...one minute they were working fine, the next they completely halted. It's clear the program is recognizing that something's supposed to be there, as Adblock pops up a little "Block" tab over where the file should be, but again, that space is completely blank. It's not black, it's transparent.

I've completely uninstalled Shockwave and reinstalled it from scratch, and "updated" it three times now, all to no effect.

I have recently started having the redirection issue with Amazon. I click on a product link on the Amazon website and now I get the message that this page is not properly redirecting. I try Chrome and it works fine. I have cleared my cache, insured that cookies are accepted and I have searched for solutions. I did find several others reporting this problem, but none of their solutions worked for me. The odd thing is that some links on Amazon still work properly. But others don't. Here is a link that is not working for me: https://www.amazon.com/ChickenFuel-OMRI-Listed-Organic-Compost-Fertilizer/dp/B0102PAT9O?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&redirect=true&ref_=s9_cartx_gw_g86_i3_r

Here is another link that works fine: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VOLHKHA/ref=br_asw_pdt-2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-4&pf_rd_r=57NDHMP0ADH9BCSMAPX8&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=4ccd27f1-4604-40d9-92c7-3318b57f8ba8&pf_rd_i=desktop

And, as I wrote above, all these links work in other browsers, i.e. Chrome. But I hate switching to Chrome so I can use Amazon. As far as I can tell, Amazon is the only website that has this issue. I browse a lot, so that seems strange to me.

Was there a recent change that invalidates private certificates, with it's private CA imported into my FF CA repository?

What I have set up, which worked not too long ago, which was defining the IP address and host name in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file. Then importing the remote site's private CA certificate in FF. From that point on, it trusted my private URLs due to matching private CA. Now, generates SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE.

I renamed the cert8.db file and restarted FF. I now get the normal "untrusted" error then re-imported the private CA to make the "untrusted" error go away. However, that still gave me SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE. So, something must've changed.

I even tried disabling OCSP checking (thought it was optional if it couldn't check). I then disabled OCSP Stapling. Neither resolved this issue, thinking it was trying to check with the OCSP server, which it can't reach due to firewall since it's internal to the other private LAN.

I'm not sure where to look. I tried Googling for answers, which lead me to the above two solutions to try.

The CA I have is a private CA, generated by Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Active Directory Certificate Authority installation. Like I said, it was working in FF fairly recently. Let me know what else you need for me to provide.
