I am having an issue where youtube videos played at higher quality stutter when put to fullscreen. Up till about 720p60 works fine, at 1080p60 and above the framerate becomes unstable.

Things I have tried: - I have tried going into media.media-capabilities.enabled and changing it from false to true - I have set network.buffer.cache.size to 262144 - I have disabled all my plugins - I have tried changing my user agent to windows/chrome

My current setup: Firefox 122.0, Macbook pro Sonoma 14.1, Apple M1 Pro chip

Curiously, if I make a new firefox profile and play a video there, there is no stutter. Does anyone have ideas on how I can fix my current profile?

I have an add-on ad blocker for youtube and have never gotten ads. This afternoon that stopped. I get ads with every video I click and there is no 'skip ad' on the screen. I added another top rated youtube add blocker, quit firefox and then opened it again. Before, if I clicked a video it started an ad and I could go back and then hit the video again, but now that doesn't work, but if I select to show the video in a new tab, there are no ads in that tab. What can I do to make the ads stop like they used to and never appear? Yes and my OS is Ubuntu 22.04

I'm trying to use a manual proxy server for Firefox.

I'm trying to use port number 29842 which was given to me by the proxy provider.

Google search no longer works on Firefox. Other browsers have no problems. Changing the default search engine on Firefox works (eg Bing), BUT. It can now find Google Maps, but Google Maps cannot find a location, because it uses a Google search. I tried the fix in about:config, but it had no effect.

Any method I open a new tab, it always takes up to 7s to load, while completely suspending my browser. This also happens in troubleshoot mode but not in incognito. Directly opening websites in a new tab doesn't trigger that bug. I don't recall when this started to happen, it might be after some new Windows update.

I have included screenshots from Firefox Profiler, both from regular window and incognito one.

When streaming a video and using PiP, after opening another window or program and then pausing said video that is currently being played on the PiP player window, sometimes this causes the actual video itself being played via the PiP player window to freeze. So the video is paused and I want to resume play but when clicking the 'play' button on the PiP player window the video refuses to play.

The only way to clear this bug is to click the 'close' button or the 'back to tab' button on the PiP player window and then refresh the actual web page. After refreshing the web page and repeating the same steps - the PiP player window works just fine with playing and pausing, but it's annoying that I have to do this.

I wish to re-install my Old Firefox Data to my restored Win 10 computer Firefox browser bookmarks. There was no link given to migrate this info held in our MS OneDrive folder (as listed on the Desktop).

Last year in February MS crashed my Chrome browser. I could not re-install that, but could download and install Firefox.

Profile: https://share.firefox.dev/490blHh

Subject says it all, but it seems to occur with any site, anytime I try to open more than three or four tabs (ctrl-clicking links on a forum, for example) my Firefox instance grinds to a halt and starts consuming most of my CPU (Ryzen 5 3600).

I've tried turning off Firefox's various protections. I tried troubleshooting (formerly "safe") mode, and the problem isn't as bad but is still present as far as I can tell. The only extension I can think that would be making it worse is Tree Style Tab, but I don't know enough about interpreting Firefox profiles to verify.

The only reason I consider this odd is because doing the same thing in Chrome doesn't have this issue on this same device. If I open many tabs quickly, Chrome itself is still responsive. Those newly opened tabs may take a while to load and become interactive, but it doesn't affect the rest of the application. I pay my ISP for gigabit DSL, and as far as I can tell that is roughly what I get. In my case, Firefox doesn't behave this way.

I have the following settings in Settings/Preferences>General:

Files and Applications

Downloads Save all files in the following folder: Downloads Ticked Ask every time where to save a file

Applications Portable Document Format (PDF): Open in Firefox How should Firefox deal with other files? Ticked Ask whether to open or save files

On specific websites when I click on a pdf link, Firefox opens and automatically saves the file to Downloads folder without asking whether to save and where to save despite the above settings. As far as I remember, on other websites when clicking a pdf link Firefox only opens the corresponding file and doesn't save.

I found this with a internet search https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/stop-saving-pdfs-to-downloads-when-viewing-in-firefox/td-p/10225.

How can it be disabled that Firefox automatically saves PDFs?

Trying to stream shows on Firefox and video does not start / errors out. Philo returns with this error: Philo is having trouble streaming this content.

[Error code: pf-1.5-5bb2f]

Paramount+ Also freezes up and returns error message. As does Amazon Prime.

Adblockers disabled. Youtube is fine.

Tried refreshing Firefox / renistalling but same error. Prefer to use Firefox as default browser but having to go to Google to stream shows.

Debating rolling back a version but it was working fine the other day but could have had an update and didn't notice and now streaming is erroring out.

Suggestions? Thanks.
