I'm having a problem where when i watch youtube videos they don't properly load the video as im watching, it will load a tiny part to just then stop the video and load for ages without really coming anywhere. I got this problem probably a few days ago and it seems to only be when i watch videos via youtube on firefox, i tried with chrome and it works fine. I have tested my network speeds when this has happened and they are normal, looking at any other video site/streaming site it is working all fine. I have tried with some steps i found when looking for a solution. These steps are to turn of hardware acceleration or clear the cache, i have tried turning the hardware acceleration off and so far (only tested it for 5 min) it seems to be working and i have not cleared my cache as i have a fresh install of windows and firefox. I would like to be able to have hardware acceleration on because i use the browser a lot while playing games or working and i use multiple tabs and instances and it would benefit me more with it on. Something i also have seen and checked is updates for drivers, everything is up to date.

Anyone know any fix or if it is a problem for others or anything that could help?

Problem One: 1Password extension not working for me. I installed Firefox and made it my primary browser. Extensions have been a disaster for me. First I tried adding the 1 Password extension. I did this because when I tried opening a page from 1 Password uninstalled on the browser, it didn't l as it should (has always done so with Safari). I had to open 1Password separately, and copy the information, which is tedious.

So I installed the 1Password Extension on Firefox. It didn't work unless I'd opened the desktop version of 1Password, it still didn't open and fill.

So I removed the extension. I then decided to give it another try. The extension shows up on Firefox. But now it has a little lock on the icon. The problem is that clicking on the icon doesn't open anything! I've rebooted the computer, and only reinstalled the 1Password extension. The same problem occurs, then, without clicking on the problematic icon, I reboot the computer again. It hasn't helped.

PROBLEM TWO: I'm having an additional problem with extensions. When I click on the extension for Pocket (for instance), the program opens, but fails to recognize that I have a paid subscription, asking me to upgrade. This is true for other sites I have subscriptions to, limiting me using the "free" version, which limits what I can open as well as what I can save.

It sounds unbelievable, but that's what's happened to me. I'm using enhanced tracking protection for all sites. Macbook Pro ; Catalina OS 10.15.7 (19H15) - most recent version Max OS

I appreciate any help you can give me. This is way over my head! I've tried everything I can think of, except for uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

I had this problem yesterday when I started up this browser it said, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.". So I read through the article and it said to restart my mac, so I did just that and pow, my bookmarks and history returned! Little did I know that the next day, (today) I'd start up Firefox and the message was there again, but this time, it got even worse.

       First I tried to tackle the bookmark problem, "Quit Firefox" they said, "Restart your computer." they said, "Create a new database". None of those worked, so I scrambled the internet looking for answers, all of them resolved their problems, every one else was A-ok, excluding me, and just like that, my add-ons weren't working anymore! Ad-block Plus, Dark Reader, Privacy Badger, nothing. I tried to delete Adblock first and reinstall it, because that's what their page told me to do, and I keep getting this message trying to reinstall it saying, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt." 
       And little did I know that every other extension said the exact same thing. So i knew something was going on that was out of my control. And then finally, the "pièce de résistance" to my pain and suffering through out this whole hour or so, pages won't even load even though I'm connected to the internet, how perfect... Even trying to update the browser won't work, downloading a new one also goes through the same "pages not loading problem. 
        So in conclusion, hopefully, just hopefully, you guys can help me out. I'll probably have to resort to my old laptop, (which is slow and almost unusable with how buggy that thing is.) seeing how my mac has also been running into problems these last few days as well before this conundrum. 

Good Luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

Search engine shortcuts in address bar

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.

I am using Firefox Nightly on Linux.

I have two M171 Logitech mouses. Their scroll wheel works fine everywhere except firefox (chrome works fine, for instance). In firefox, I need to press the scroll wheel down, keep it down and scroll. Then, it scrolls. But just freely scrolling with the mouse does not scroll the page, it does nothing. This happens in every web page. Interestingly, if I use the scroll wheel in the popup of an addon (for instance in the tab listing of a group in Simple Tab Groups), it works there. But not in web pages or the sidebar. I have also tried entering safe mode, but it didn't help.

Did anyone have this issue too?

Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum and driven here out of desperation for a remedy, having been a very happy Firefox user for about 15 years.

Windows specification Edition: Windows 10 Home Version: 2004 OS build: 19041.630 Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.31.0

Problem - Firefox 82.0.3 freezes Windows 10 completely, disabling mouse and keyboard and requiring hard reboot. (The longest I waited before reboot was 15 minutes.) - Freeze can be after some minutes of Firefox runtime or on startup. - This is browsing simple information websites - nothing graphics- or streaming-heavy. Vanilla Firefox - no add ons or customization. Freezes have been on mouse click, but also not. - Starting Firefox in Safe Mode makes no difference. - Uninstall and reinstall remedied the situation for a number of hours before freezes began again. When freezes were uniformly on startup, I uninstalled again. And that's where I am... using Chrome. :(

My hunch is that this is to do with the Refresh of Firefox I did the day before the first freeze. I had noticed the "Firefox seems to be slow to load..." message (with the tortoise) at the bottom of Firefox for a month or two, ignoring it because I wasn't finding it unduly slow. I must have used Firefox for a total of about 4 hours after the Refresh before the first freeze.

All assistance gratefully received.

Since Firefox version 82, the possibility of autofill username on some specific input fields (<input type="search">) doesn't work anymore (while <input type="text"> still works). In office I often have to check a customer's website where the login form contains a input field of type "search" for the username. It allways worked fine for me to use the saved username and password, automaticly filled in on both of the text fields (of course, the password field is of type "password"). I checked Firefox version 81, where "search" input fields still worked for autofill, so version 82 must have been updated on this topic, but I can't understand why (perhaps there is a good reason to inactivate this input type for autofill)..
