A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)

Whenever I am viewing a PDF and wish to download it or save a file from firefox, the save dialogue of the finder and where to save it does not appear. Only the initial firefox option of "Open file" or Save As dialogue appears. Once pressing Save As, nothing else happens. Furthermore when simply pressing Cmd + S to save the PDF no dialouge appears. When typing this message and attempting to add an image of a screenshot, once again the finder dialogue to select a file does not appear.

Is this a mac issue or firefox problem? I am running Mac OS 12.0.1 Monterey.

Hello,

When going to logon to Indiegogo.com I first reopen it in a Facebook container but once I do that the container goes away.

Continuing to have issues with pinned tabs and, worse, Firefox crashing...like y'day with loss of all pinned tabs on powering up today?! Have posted issue several times with "FredMcD" being unable to help but who escalated the problem...with no response from Mozilla/Firefox! Needlessly spending a great deal of time restoring pinned tabs but sometimes cannot find them all. Does the "800 lbs" Mozilla care?

In Firefox application settings I go to the General > Applications > Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing. From there when I try to set it to open PDF documents itself, I only see options "Always ask", "Save file" and "Use other". I tried using the "Use other" option and set it to Firefox, but the setting always sets back to "Always ask". I'm unable to set Firefox to open pdf documents inside Firefox, they just always download.

I did read many many threads on this issue on the web, I'm clearly not the only one with this problem, but none of the solutions proposed worked for me. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I am experiencing a problem with lockwise since months. In just few words I cannot see which password are stored and therefore I cannot even edit them (see the pict). The funny part is that the login/passwords data are there because I can use them after landing on any page where I have an account. That's to say that the only way I have to edit a password that I changed on a different browser is to visit the page and then change it. Another few examples? 1) If I enter in the search box any of the sites that should be (and indeed are) there, it cannot retrieve anything. 2) If I click insert new credential it does nothing (no box where to insert the new data)

Note! Browser update 94.0.2 (Mac) Logged in my FF account and Sync activated.

On top of that, for the first time since working here I had to create some account when I was already logged in, help

I need you to please restore my shortcuts as soon as possible!

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

Testing ConvertKit integrations with my Squarespace site across multiple browsers. Firefox (v94.0.2) doesn't show the embedded ConvertKit form in the footer. I also have the ConvertKit form embedded in a sidebar, and while Firefox shows that form, it doesn't initiate the correct response (a 'thank you' that shows up on the sidebar when someone signs up); instead it pops open a new browser window with the thank you message.

I uploaded 2 images; one shows how the form should act on the sidebar after subscribing (screenshot from using Chrome) and the other shows how Firefox handles the subscribe. The Chrome screenshot shows Sign Up For Our Newsletter and a Success! message below it. The Firefox image shows that the form response takes me to another web page with multiple messages.

Any ideas what's up? should I advise visitors to the website that the form does not display correctly on Firefox?

Thanks -

We use Firefox in our small business to deliver web-based apps for visitor sign-in at schools. We specify Firefox ESR primarily because of the Silent Print feature and the fact it is much easier to enable in Firefox than other major browsers.

With the ESR 91 release we began getting reports from customers that our web-app was no printing the name tags to a locally connected label printer. The printer has been checked. Drivers are installed and updated. The target label printer is designated as the default for the Win-PC station.

The config of the Firefox print function has been verified so that it is targeting the right local device and has the relevant print settings correct.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = TRUE the sign-in process completes and no name tag is printed to the label printer.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = FALSE the sign-in process completes, the print dialog pops and upon clicking the PRINT button the name tag prints to the label printer.

What's up with the PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT setting? It used to work, when we were running ESR78. Silent printing has been our selling point to run Firefox on hundreds of PC/Win (and Mac) workstations across our customer sites. Without this feature enabled and working, our customers are going to start asking to move back to Chrome or Edge.

Same result replicated several times.

Hello, After one of the last updates of november I started having 20-50 processes for each firefox profile that I use. In previous versions I used 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart' and 'browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2' and set them to false, to limit the number of processes. But now, even though I removed these configurations, I have no option to control how much RAM and processes firefox uses - the option to set the content processes is missing from the settings page too. Another thing that I noticed is that for some reason, in most of my profiles, container tabs can't be enabled.

Hope you can help, Rotem.

After the latest release of Firefox, it is automatically forcing https on our site EquestrianCoach.com. We do not have a security certificate at this time (yes I know we need one and we are working on it). Therefore we get a "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page and no one can access the site. Even if you manually try to take out the "s" it directs right back to https. I heard Firefox does this if it detects a SSL, but again, we do not have one or never did for this site. I see other sites with no ssl work fine. Is there a work around to not have Firefox do this? All the legacy Firefox browsers work fine on our site. It was just with the last release it somehow seems to think we have one and force redirects. And to clarify, it isn't just on one computer. All members who have the new Firefox have this issue. Thank you for any assistance! It is greatly appreciated!
