Hey folks, I've been noticing something peculiar with Firefox that's been bothering me lately. Whenever I try to watch videos on YouTube in resolutions above 1080p, they tend to randomly buffer. It's quite frustrating, especially when I know my internet connection is stable and other browsers don't seem to have this issue. Has anyone else experienced this problem with Firefox? And if so, do you have any tips or solutions to share? Thanks in advance for any insights!

Versions: Firefox: 127.0 (64-bit) Linux: Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS

Description: After some time, and (under unknown conditions), the input delay will shoot way up. Like 20-30 seconds.

Strangely enough, this only applies to keyboard inputs. I can change my tab with my mouse, I can click on things, no issues there. But any keyboard interaction is hugely delayed.

This does not fix itself until I close my browser and restart it. Closing the browser is always broken here too, if I close the browser with the [X] exit button, I then need to kill the process because it just hangs. It blanks out the contents of each tab like it's preparing to close them, but it just doesn't ever complete the task without a manual kill.

CPU usage and memory usage are relatively low; significantly below my system's limits.

I've already tried this suggested fix, to no avail.

The frequency of this is only about once a week at most, usually once a month, so it's not a huge issue, but I'm just worried about this occurring during a critical meeting or something later. Having this impending restart needed is kind of worrying for critical usage times.

Hi! After a routine update today to Mozilla Firefox 127.0 for Linux Mint, Firefox is asking for my master password before letting me continue. Sync does not appear to be enabled.

I'd really rather it didn't do this, because my password manager is now always open and accessible. Previously, the master password request was only triggered when I came on a site that needed a password.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for any pointers!

Hi, Since the update today to 127.0 My sidebar bookmark will not load when I open Firefox. Here is what I have done so far,

Uninstalled Firefox and use the restore on reinstall. didn't work deleted the xulstore file in 3 location. didn't work Removed Firefox using Revo Uninstaller and installed from the local setup file. didn't work Uninstalled ad-ons that used the sidebar, IE Video DownloadHelper, Sync my account, and tryed the step above again. didn't work I use Revo again and did a search for any firefox file, deleted old firefox folder on desktop and any file I could find with a link to the browser. Reinstalled from local file.

When Firefox started this time there was no profile to log in my account "" password etc "", I did a test and the sidebar was working correctly. I then activated my account and the side bar stop working on restart. Not that I did a sync after removing a few ad-ons, see pic for left addons.

For many years I have used the ability to set shortcuts to website on the Firefox home tab, using the method given at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-items-on-firefox-new-tab-page#w_pin-unpin-or-remove-a-shortcut.

However, today, when I try to edit a shortcut link, I do not get the 3 dots menu by right clicking on a shortcut tile.

Is this a recent change, a bug, an issue with my installation (which has been stable for many years)?

How can I get back the functionality back?

I am using Firefox 127.0 (64 bit) on Windows (Windows 11, all up to date).

A while back the behavior of the ctrl+shift+t shortcut changed from reopening tab in the current window to reopening tab in the current window or reopening last closed window which for me and a lot of other people too made it worse. There's been a thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421356 but it's been archived without a real solution. Is there now a way like a about:config toggle to bring back the old functionality? I really miss the old behavior.

I am using firefox 126.0.1 (64-bit) version of firefox on a linux system (kernel 6.6). Firefox is closing the main window abruptly (or crashing).

Wanted to get information on the crash, but when I navigated to the about:crashes page, it return a page with title "invalid URL" and the page says "Hmm. That address doesn’t look right."

Is there a way to get to the crash data/information?

My Windows 10 Pro laptop computer crashed a couple of days ago and no longer works. I am considering replacing it with a new Macbook Air. My files are backed up with Carbonite. Will I be able to get my saved passwords back by restoring my Firefox profile to the proper folder on the Mac? (I already know that Carbonite's backup program will not do a "file restore" between Mac and Windows; I will likely be paying Carbonite an extra $100 so they can put my files on an external drive and ship i to me.) | (I have a lot of the passwords saved in Safari on my iPhone and old iPad mini 2, but there are some I did not want to save on the mobile devices. They are also not on the much older Windows laptop I am currently using. Therefore, I cannot access certain sites right now unless I am willing to change the passwords.)

Thank you.

I have 2 soundcards on my iMac, (OS Ventura 13.6.1) : one internal (iMac) and one for music production. (universal audio)

Until the latest update (127), I could select either one and I could hear the audio from Firefox. But... since the update, only the internal iMac audio card is working. Note that I don't have this problem with Safari nor Chrome and it used to work on Firefox until the last update.

Anyone has noticed that? 

Does anyone knows how to contact them and log this as a new bug?

For a few months now, I have been having issues with Firefox and my computer audio. If I am listening to something, like internet radio (doesn't matter which website), the audio will completely cut out. Sometimes it will start working on its own and other times I either have to force quite Firefox or completely restart my computer. When this happens, no other audio works on my computer. I have had a new motherboard, audio card, speakers all replaced under warranty. I've also re-installed Windows and it still keeps happening. Has anyone else experienced this?

The behavior began with fifteen to twenty crash messages appearing. After which the browser would stop responding and be unable to reach out to the internet.

Network connectivity was confirmed as I was able to access my VPN and corporate teams.

I submitted as many crash reports as I could. Eventually the crash reporter ceased to function. The message is:

Firefox had a problem and crashed. Unfortunately, the crash reporter is unable to submit a report for this crash.

Details: expected value at line 1 column 1

Only a full reboot of the machine restored functionality but only temporarily. It returns after being put into sleep mode.

Running firefox in safe mode does not restore functionality. The behavior persists.

I am fully up to date according to firefox.

I am running a Lenovo Thinkpad Windows 11.
