The CPU usage has increased by ~50% since last weekend 6-7 Nov. Firefox selects in both cases - 720p or 720p60 - use hardware acceleration when available The main culprits are: - GeckoMain - RDD Process - Web Content For 720p it increased from ~14% to ~22% and for 720p60 the change is from ~20% to ~29% I use: - Ubuntu 21.10 - Ryzen 3 2200G; 16GB - Wayland

I have used an extension named "Update Scanner" for several years, but now it no longer functions. The data I ask it to save is not saved, or returned when requested.

What do I need to do to get it functioning again. It is the current version 4.4.0

EDIT: I can see the WAL and EHM files come and go, but the DB doesn't save the data.

I made a few changes to about:config. How can i save the about:config settings for a new Firefox installation? My bet is this is possible either with distribution-policies.json or with a HTML. I used Kali Linux, this operating system comes with a pre-configured Firefox installation. For example it uses a permanent darkmode with duckduckgo even while cookies are denied. It also comes with customs about:config settings like disabled telemetry.

Those are all the setting i changed and i would like to find out a permanent way to import them to Firefox, right after installaing the Browser. It's time consuming changing each setting manually after each install...

How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?

Hi guys! Stripe.com crashes FF. The site only displays about halfway down its homepage, then crashes FF. I've cleared cookies, all history, removed and reloaded FF, turned off tracking protection for Stripe at the address bar, lowered tracking settings to standard in FF, turned off hardware acceleration, and contacted Stripe directly. But they can't help with browser specific issues accept to offer standard solutions, which I already tried. Also, Stripe works fine in Chrome.

I'm using 1password extension, and for plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. I deactivated both those plugins but no use. Ideas? Thanks! Ken

Use updated Firefox as default browser on my Win10 desktop. Problem started in about 2wks: I open my cdn bank website, sign in with pw, get my banking items page, click on visa, and browser freezes, doesn’t let me open any of banking items. Now top of this page comes tiny msge: "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page. Stop" Even the SignOut spot is frozen! I dont care about slower speed , I am only using that website for a couple of minutes. I have to turn off Firefox, everything else in PC works ok. I tried MS Edge and the same bank website works perfectly (like before on Firefox)!!! I prefer Firefox security features, please help!!! If not, MS Edge is my default browser!!!

PC was running fine and firefox. Removed the office365 app that comes with win10 and now its no go. Reinstalled and no go. Done safe mode and no go. Removed all files and new install of firefox still no go.

So I have to say that may be office365 app has removed some important files that were shared. I haven't installed office365 as I use office pro 2010 which still works fine. Im used that snarky edge browser at the moment.

Any ideas?

Firefox: 93.0 OS: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20211030 KDE Plasma: 5.23.2 Qt: 5.15.2

Firefox now freezes almost immediately upon launching.

I have performed all the troubleshooting steps described at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding

I have performed the Refresh procedure and disabled hardware acceleration. I have no themes or add-ons installed.

The freeze is permanent; it doesn't recover. I have to perform a "kill -9" on the firefox process.

When the freeze has occurred, the CPU is not spiked. The "top" command is showing GeckoMain at the top of the list.

Firefox RAM usage on M1 Mac has dramatically increased. Unfortunately, b/c the memory usage is in firefox parent process, I can't simply terminate a process corresponding to a "tab", meaning I have no choice but to restart Firefox (closing & reopening all tabs) every hour or so of usage.

This is a new issue from a long-time firefox user (on multiple operating systems). It happened after I upgraded the Mac to "Monterey", which may or may not be coincidence.

Since some time I encounter on more and more sites that on loading, the home page is showed as expected, but only during a fraction of a second. After it a kind of light gray filter layer is added to the screen. It's possible to scroll down the page, but all buttons/links on it are disabled. Using Google Chrome previous described mistake does not occur. Instead a cookie popup appears and after accepting, the normal homepage appears. So it seems that some sites are freezing their home page by the gray overlay in order to force the user to accept/reject the cookies. But when Firefox skips the cookie popup you're always blocked. Do you see a solution for a user of sutch sites?

While ago I set a primary password to my stored logins and passwords. (about:logins) This problem started right after I set up a primary password. Whenever I want to access my stored logins and passwords for the first time in a browsing session, it asks me the primary password and I type my primary password, it will not load the passwords for like 20 seconds, meanwhile the about:logins tab kinda freezes and my laptop fans start spinning so fast for the whole 20 seconds. After it finally loads the passwords and I'm done, if I close the tab (about:logins) and open it back again (about:logins) it won't ask me for my password but still will take forever to load them again. So during a browsing session if I consistently want to access my logins and passwords I have to keep that tab open.

I looked it up a bit and my issue is the exact same as this one [|Bug 1726022] I don't know how to fix it.

Also related, each time I start firefox it will randomly ask for my primary password after 2-10 minutes. Even If I haven't browsed anything yet and it was on the background. It will popup a small window telling me to enter my primary password.

I'm on Firefox 93.0 (64 bit) (Build 20210927210923) , Windows 10 Home

Hey!

As the subject implies, my Firefox Application and associated applications on Windows 10 don't open at all. When I click on the shortcut, or open it directly through file explorer as administrator, for a single moment it shows a blank window with a blank application on the taskbar open and immediately closes it. It does not bring up a crash report following this. I have tried everything from restarting my PC, to removing every Firefox file on my PC and reinstalling Firefox, to trying Safe Mode, updating Windows 10 and drivers, and virus scans. Nothing has worked.

Is there any form of fix for this? It would be well appreciated!

Hello! I’m using a Mac and I just recently changed the main user’s name in the laptop, and now some images won’t ever load. For example, the profile pictures won’t load in StackOverflow and the image of my university in Google Drive won’t load. Actually, I’m not really sure anymore if it has anything to do with changing the username but I only started noticing it after that time. I also tried clearing the cache and resetting Firefox and even tried reinstalling it but the images still won’t load. Any help would be great. Thanks!
