Firefox is broken. For months now anytime I watch a Live stream on Youtube it freezes within seconds and acts like it's buffering. Internet connection is great. Same live streams work perfect on Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome and others. Only Firefox browser is doing this.

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?

I tried to download a file and got an error that said "exceeded the maximum number of connections to this server" so I researched it and it told me to type about:Config in the address bad and I would get a configuration page that said "Advanced Preferences". I didn't get that page, I only got a page with a long list of things I didn't understand but I found "http.max-persistent-connections-per-server" and I changed that from 6 to 15. Will that help? I've never ever had problems downloading files or multiple files before. What else should I do so I don't run into this problem anymore? I didn't see anything in Firefox Settings that would help configure the settings.

Firefox has stopped saving history and I am unable to save any bookmarks. This seems to have happened recently for no reason I can understand. I haven't made any changes. I use a VPN but was doing so before this happened. I have checked all the settings and also deleted the places.sqlite file. When I click <bookmark current tab> nothing happens and history shows as empty.

Today when I close many tabs using control w firefox seems to randomly jump around when choosing which next tab to close

I wish to have firefox always close the adjacent tab to the tab I just closed

This should be the default behavior ... I do not see any setting for this ... is there an addon to do this ?

I am using the latest firefox on ubuntu

Took me a while to figure out how to get the full installer to install to my faster and larger D drive, but I finally did.

Then I discovered it was still accessing C: under: D:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local D:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming

So I now have my Mozilla folders in both locations pointed to D: with a symbolic link or whatever.

But it STILL seems to be accessing C: to do SOMETHING, and I'm not sure what or where, as searching C: for Firefox or Mozilla turns up nothing.

It still thrashes my C: drive though, especially noticeable if I'm using it for something else at close to 100% and Firefox for example loads a Youtube page that was unused/not in focus for a while.

Somehow it's STILL causing as much activity on C as D and I'm not sure why...if I was maybe I could point more directories to D with more Symbolic links (or whatever they're called...I may be misremembering since I set this up a few weeks ago, but they seem to work fine).

(I gave up on Chrome...I can point a bunch of stuff at D, but sooner or later it breaks its ability to do updates until I move stuff to C...I'm guessing maybe the updater "fixes" something in the background that breaks it. Thankfully Firefox seems to update just fine (I do NOT use the background process, I just check every day), and I got 122 today seemingly fine. No idea why browsers are so weird about getting installed on an alternative drive compared to other programs...it's a pretty common thing to want!)

Firefox is my default browser, but it does not allow me to log in to specific websites. For example, ihg.com, when I click the sign in button nothing happens, I just have a little note at the bottom left "javascript:void(0);" Another example, dutchcrafters.com , when I click Log in with Gmail, nothing happens.

I have tried removing all the content blocking extensions (privacy badgers, ublock origin, etc.), did not fix it. I have tried a firefox refresh, did not fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with several device restarts, did not fix it.

I know this must be a firefox specific problem because microsoft edge work perfectly for both of these examples. Any other suggestions to fix this firefox issue?

Hi,

  I am running the latest Firefox v122 (firefox_122.0+build1-0ubuntu0.22.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb not snap)

and when using the --profile option to specify the startup profile it fails to start even on a NEW system that never ran Firefox if I give it a directory that resides on a mounted ext3 filesystem.

  All the permissions are OK and yet running strace I see an error and after a few second will get the

generic pop-up with the error message: (after a few seconds)

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

 Running the SAME from /tmp works fine, but I need the profile to reside on a persistent storage area

so if the LIVE distro restarts then it can restore the previous session, bookmarks, options, etc...


============================================================
 The 2 directories were created identically and have the exact same permissions:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ mkdir /tmp/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ mkdir /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ ls -ald /tmp/firefox3 drwxrwxr-x 17 xubuntu xubuntu 1080 Jan 21 22:05 /tmp/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ ls -ald /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3 drwxrwxr-x 17 xubuntu xubuntu 4096 Jan 21 21:13 /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3

============================================================

The only difference is that one is mounted on tmpfs and the other is on /dev/nvme0n1p2:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ df -k /tmp/firefox3 Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 32560016 351528 32208488 2% /tmp

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ df -k /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3 Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/nvme0n1p2 195751828 51056068 142695768 27% /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home


============================================================

When starting firefox with the /tmp/firefox3 profile directory it works fine and starts up:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ firefox --profile /tmp/firefox3

newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=1040, ...}, 0) = 0 newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3/.parentlock", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=0, ...}, 0) = 0 openat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3/.parentlock", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 11 fcntl(11, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_UNLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0, l_pid=-487933736}) = 0 fcntl(11, F_SETLK, {l_type=F_WRLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0}) = 0 uname({sysname="Linux", nodename="xubuntu", ...}) = 0


BUT when using the persistent storage on the real filesystem (but SAME exact permissions) it fails:

newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=4096, ...}, 0) = 0 newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3/.parentlock", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=0, ...}, 0) = 0 openat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3/.parentlock", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 11 fcntl(11, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_UNLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0, l_pid=1519466008}) = 0 fcntl(11, F_SETLK, {l_type=F_WRLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0}) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied) close(11) = 0

Am I doing anything wrong or is this some weird startup issue / race condition in the parentlock management?

Thank you for looking into this.

Dear community,

since some recent update I am asked for a primary password every time I open the browser, which is higly annoying. I like my passwords protected by a primary password and in former times it was only asked for when trying to reveal a saved password. I know this has probably to do with me using Firefox sync, because I use the browser on my Android too but I would like to keep my devices synced. Besides: On my phone I am only asked for a fingerprint when accessing passwords, not every single time I open the app. There must be a way to reconfigure this on a desktop, right?

I switched from windows 10 to 11 and to a new laptop. Here in my new laptop Asus tuf 15 ,even though it has better RAM , internet connection, cache memory, cores the FIREFOX doesnot function properly. It's extremly laggy specially when I use YOURUBE . In my earlier HP laptop with 8 GB ram I could use 10-15 tabs at one time .It would still not lag . It could do web development at the same time I could watch youtube tutorials. But now I barely open 4-5 tabs the youtube starts freezing up to the extent that I really get frustrated. Please so something or I will have to switch to BRAVE browser or something.

Firefox is the default browser on my MAC… used it for years, no problems.

Lately, when I get my daily email from The Washington Post, and I click on a link to an article, Firefox (1) shows me the lead picture as a blur and (2) in a short time, blanks the window.

When I click on “reload,” the article comes back (at the beginning of the piece) with the same fuzzy picture and again, within a minute, blanks the window.

If I use the same links, from the WashPost article, and use Safari, the pictures are clear and the article doesn’t disappear.

I don’t know if it’s related, but when I’m playing a game from the AARP website, and it’s time for a commercial, the window goes blank and I have to reload … which brings up my game where I left off.

I don’t know if it’s relevant, but I have “AdBlock Plus” and “AdBlocker Ultimate.”

Any thoughts ???
