I've just tried to save something from firefox on linux(Manjaro KDE) and was baffled that there doesn't seem to be a way to manually enter the path and navigate to it in the save dialog. In addition to that, there are many locations missing and I can't seem to find a way to add new custom or favorites ones either.

All that combined means it was impossible to save my file directly to a network location, which is something I very often need to do. It just seems insane for such a basic feature to be missing and I've found a 4 years old thread about it meaning nothing has been done to fix this since? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279125

The only way I can see would be to mount the network path(not a good solution for one offs) and navigate to it(a symlink can make it closer to one of the existing shortcut but still annoyingly require more clicks) every time but that's very tedious since most of my saving is on a specific server drive.

After updating my openSUSE Firefox package from version 122 to 123 every frame inside each window started to have weird grey overlay of scrollable area. I failed to find any description of such a thing happening, let alone how to get rid of it. I tried removing build-in distro-default preferences and had complete audit of all my custom preferences in about:config but none changed that behavior. I even updated to 124b4 but this also haven't changed anything. Naturally, nuking entire profile is not an option, I might as well replace the whole browser. So, how do I get rid of this thing?

Hello, I have a problem with Firefox on (only) the vive.com site. It shows a fast (same as Chrome/Opera) loading, but only on firefox it stays @ 99% a very long time, whereas on other browsers, in the instant, you can see the content of the page. You can test for example on that page: https://developer.vive.com/resources/vive-sense/

I work in a society where I need to have a brower with proxy support & security (firefox is the best to me) but that can work without waiting minutes to access a page, whereas it has been downloaded fast.

Opera is fast on vive.com, but that shit doesn't have proxy support, so I need configure firewall, put a gateway, and I really hate, it's a pure security fail (never put a gateway on windows, microsoft takes the control of your windows and scan your datas). We don't wish that in our society.

So I'm there to report you that, I think there is a problem and I really don't understand what can do firefox to make the user wait so much time, and it's not related to the processor, it's the same on my crappy laptop or on a brand new powerful 3D station. With opera, it's really in a second, and with firefox, it's a minute. Really weird.

Whenever firefox has multiple tabs open and on any single tab youtube is running i find youtube to crash lag and even crack itself by audio playing with struck video. FYI the same issue is not experienced in other browsers like brave for instance . I hope you provide attention to this problem and solve this issue as soon as possible and as I mostly use firefox to browse and use its dev tools.

Hi all,

I feel like this is a problem that must have been experienced and solved a thousand times... however I've tried all the suggested fixes I can find and the problem still persists.

When I load Firefox the pages take ages to load. It doesn't matter what the page is, it takes ages, except that about: pages load fine, no problem. When I say pages take ages to load, I mean that everything about the page takes ages, not only the next, not on the images and other content etc, everything. This only started happening today and I only created a new profile a month or so ago. I don't have many tabs open (maybe 20) of which 9 are pinned. I do have lots of extensions installed.

I've tried troubleshooting/safe mode, that makes no difference.

Private browsing and loading another profile are fine, they don't have this problem.

I've cleared all cache and data, cookies, etc, including startup cache.

I've deleted the content-prefs file, and removed places files.

I've tried disabling and enabling hardware acceleration.

I've tried disabling TRR.

Probably some other things too, but so far nothing has worked.

Suggestions please! :)

I don't want to be asking this question in what is completely incorrectly termed a "community". Other users don't know anything. Firefox should have actual support. But I have no choice.

I am absolutely sick of this. Firefox crashes at least once every 24 hours. No reason no message it just freezes.

This is on top of the fact that every time an update is available Firefix stops working properly to force you to install the update.

I am a bookkeeper and use QuickBooks Online (QBO)(AUS version) as my preferred accounting program, Intuit recommends using Chrome, but I had problems with that too, in that it has fields in QBO that will not work, I have switched to Firefox because it handles the 'black' look and the columns within the ledgers are more stable, however Firefox is constantly crashing it can recover most times to where I was, but it is most infuriating. Question is, is this a known problem and can it be fixed by changing the settings? Geoff Woodford

Hello all,

I've had some recent issues with my Firefox browser. All the Google services (Youtube, search, Gmail, Drive, GMeet) sometimes randomly do not load. The GET request is sent, but there is no answer. All the other websites work perfectly, and when I make the same Google related request via a private window, it (usually) works. So it does not seem to be a connection issue.

This was due to an update to Firefox I did recently. I already encountered that problem after an update end of 2022, and I reverted to an older version to remove the issue (106.0.3). Unfortunately some services don't work with it anymore, so I updated to the most current version (122.0.1 64 bits) thinking that the issue would be fixed. Unlucky for me, the problem came back.

I tried quite a lot of the basic things:

  • Remove all the plugins
  • Remove cache and cookies
  • Uninstall Firefox
  • Restart the computer (Windows 10 by the way)

I saw on a lot of forums pages that what worked for most people was to to set security.tls.enable_0rtt_data = false on the about:config, which I did, but the problem persists. I also noticed that when I reset Firefox, some visuals from Google services will have trouble to load the first few times I go on the page (as shown on the image attached). Not sure if it is relevant though.

Would you have any idea what I could try? My job is primarely focused around the Google Suite, so that is becoming a significantly painful problem to deal with...

Thanks in advance for any help!

115.8.0esr (64-bit)

This newest release has a massive memory leak. I know it's Firefox, because I look at the system monitor, and there are even more entries for firefox.com running than usual. The first one on the top of the list is the biggest resource hog, and the next one is second. All the rest have something going on, but smaller. Looking at performance in the Windows Task Manager, under performance, the memory usage goes up. Right now, it's 5.35Gb of 16Gb. At worst, several days ago, it was at 12Gb. When I force close Firefox, the memory and usage goes way, way down, to a usable level.

I wrote last night. "Ed" someone got back to me, didn't quote my message, and said he was from another department. I DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING AS LAST NIGHT. I hit the blue button, which took me here, and he advised me to do today, which brought me here, AGAIN.

If this, again, goes to "restoring access to Mozilla accounts and subscription services such as Mozilla VPN", please be professional and forward it to the right department, possibly with my message quoted, as this is the second time I'm creating it, and only have my memory on which to fall back for the first time. The logical topic is "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages, and other problems".

At the same time, other releases have had big memory leaks, and they seem to get patched quickly.

Thank you again.

Tried to report it to Ubereats but whoever was on the other side of the chat, seemed to think the problem was with the phone app and closed the ticket without solving anything.

I have a very good PC (5800X3D, 7900XT, 32GB DDR4 3600), but Firefox (either the normal, canary and nightly version) can't play smoothly any 4K video (like the Borderlands trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU_NKNZljoQ ). 1440 and lower resolutions are fine, as are 4K videos on Chrome and Edge. FWIW, my CPU during 4K playback is barely used (1-2%), and my GPU's video codec (VCE) is used by around a third. Disabling HW accel makes things better, as it still stutters but it's (barely) passable. I already tried creating a new profile, but still it's the same.
