Keyboard and mouse input stops working after watching videos

When watching videos on YouTube or Amazon Prime, Firefox will eventually stop recognizing keyboard and mouse input in all windows and tabs. This can happen after just a few minutes of video or after hours. It affects nearly all input: typing or clicking in webpages, the toolbar, the address bar, etc., though I can click the 'x' button to close tabs. When I close the final window, a dialogue will appear stating that Firefox is non-responsive and allowing me to kill the process. This seems unusual, because the OS's system monitor indicates there is plenty of unused and available RAM and CPU resources. Firefox behaves normally after restarting.

OS: Xubuntu 22.04 Firefox version: 120.0 (though previous versions have been affected for the last few months)

Hi.

Is there a way to display a column in the bookmark manager (Ctrl+Shift+O) which would show in which folder each particular bookmark is?

Is there a way to search for bookmarks (in the bookmark manager or the bookmark sidebar (Ctrl+B)) by specifically excluding certain (bookmark) folders (e.g. MySessions, Save for Read Later, BSP2 trash folder, etc)?

If the above is not available, please kindly consider those ever since important features.

Thank you very much :)

Up until today video on youtube played fine. Today I can hear audio, but the scree is just green. Trying to fix myself, I read change preferences in Fire Fox. But I can't figure it out. Bitchute and Rumble play fine. I reset my desktop by turning it off. Same with closing down my browser. No help there.

I am trying to login in to my health insurance website but Firefox keeps giving me a message that it can not access the information at this time. This is not the first time or the first website that I have had issues with. Do i have to switch to Chrome or Edge?? Is there a setting that will allow me to access the insurance website?? I have used Firefox for years but the past few months it has caused me lots of problems trying to access my accounts on various websites.

Hi - I just reset my PC and trying to restore Firefox. I saved the default release folder (qejikze4.default-release-1669319412153) which contains the latest bookmarks in the "bookmarkbackups" folder. I tried to just replace the bookmark file in the new install (how I previously transfered them), but I can't find the files in the latest V.120 version. Any suggestions on how I can do it?

Thanks

Peter

I use a VPN connection to access my workplace. This means that all my DNS queries MUST go through the company's VPN tunnel.

Firefox is deliberately blocking my work. The DNS over HTTPS "feature" does not work over this VPN connection.

In Firefox, there was previously the following setting: Preferences > General > Network Settings > Enable DNS over HTTPS

I REALLY NEED to have this setting restored right now.

There are many cathegories to filter addons at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/extensions/ sadly none to sort by popularity. A popularity filter to list firefox addons would be a great feature.

Speaking of great features, addons.mozilla.org should not use google-analytics.com Mozilla on the one hand promotes privacy or atleast makes the impression of doing so, but on the other hand tracks their users by default and uses google analytics on their extensions website. There are privacy friendly alternatives to google analytics, why did Mozilla decide to use an invasive bigtech option? It is very unlikely for mozilla to quit using google analytics just because of this thread, and even if i asked on the apropriate forum or email chances are nothing will change. It's just sad mozilla uses google analytics, there's nothing else to say.


Another question, Mozilla in this article https://addons.mozilla.org/blog/firefoxs-most-popular-innovative-browser-extensions-of-2021/ claims that there have been a total of 133 million visits to addons.mozilla.org However this site https://www.similarweb.com/website/addons.mozilla.org/#overview claims that addons.mozilla.org had a total of 10.9 million visits over time, which seems incorrect since ublockorigin alone already has 7 million+ users. I've always thought that similarweb is a reputable source, or maybe not?

Since yesterday any streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu will only have green screen for the video. The sound will come through just fine and subtitles. My Wildvine is updated, I've toggled the DRM on and off several times, no changes. My browser has been checked for updates. Not sure what else to try at this point.

Recently reinstalled Firefox for Windows on a new PC, and have since been having issues with audio playing on only Twitter. I have tried reinstalling my sound drivers, clearing the browser history and cache, clearing Twitter's cache, reinstalling Firefox, disabling all my extensions and nothing has worked. Any help at all would be appreciated.

It is ONLY Twitter, and it works on all other browsers.

I like to keep my browser windows slightly smaller than my desktop. I usually leave about a half inch or so free on each side. This way, I still have easy access to any desktop shortcut that is alone the top/bottom, or left right of the screen, without having to minimize my browser windows completely to see the entire desktop. But for some reason, for the last several Firefox versions, it will always resize its height to take up the entire height of the desktop. The width stays the same, the way I want it. But the height is always from the top of the screen all the way down to the task bar. I don't know if it happens every single time I close out of Firefox and reopen, but I know my manual resizing never lasts long. what is happening here?

I often see a Shortcut on my New Tab that I have never gone to, which says "sponsored" on it. I do not want these ads. I have looked up the answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sponsor-privacy?as=u&utm_source=inproduct I can manually delete a sponsored shortcut once, but this does not stop them from coming onto future New Tabs. My problem is, the long-term answer simply does not work. Settings -> Home -> Firefox Home Content simply does not contain a section that says "Sponsored shortcuts" and therefore this solution is not accessable. I am on Version 120 as suggested. What is going wrong? How do I prevent these ads from appearing on the New Tab page?
