Recently getting frequent "beachball of Death" on a "mid 2010" iMAC running High Sierra after updating to 10.13.6. [iMAC too old to use Mojave]. Happens both with Firefox 64.0 and its predecessor [I upgraded Firefox to see if this would cure the issue, but it did not]. "Refreshing Firefox", as suggested in Firefox Support may have helped in reducing the frequency. The key aspect is that it is hard to invoke Forced Quit to get out of this freeze. "Beachball" prevents access to Apple logo to invoke it, and sometime prevents right clicking on Firefox icon in the Dock. Command/Option/ESC most always invokes the Force Quit dialog box, and may or may not show Firefox as "unresponding". After finally quiting Firefox, can start it up again and it will work for minutes or hours before this starts again. Flash may be loaded, but is set to block its use. Using Adblock Plus No other extensions or add-ons Vanilla apps -- standard Apple apps, plus Google Earth, Garmin which were not in use or background at the time and no problem when running these by themselves. Trigger seems to be doing the update to 10.13.6 version of High Sierra -- Firefox problem in older iMacs ?? Thanks for your help. John Have not had problems when in Apple apps

Upon a windows update, my taskbar gets stuck. I just found out today it was because of Firefox! Firefox was trying to display my sign in box for me to enter my master password. However, I heard and confirmed that the entire time, my laptop was not even signed into upon reboot from the Windows update, it was playing YouTube the entire time! I had not even logged back i to Windows let ALONE Firefox and that sound was playing all night long! I thought I was going crazy! My ear buds are plugged in so the sound was not direct for me to figure out where it was coming fro right away. Also it appears to have failed to render a sanity test? Maybe that is important too?

I'm currently using nightly and, while videos with audio are muted by media.autoplay.ask-permission, and further they are paused if you also set allow-muted to false, the problem is that they still load.

On a metered [or slow] connection, this is a big problem.

Viewing a news article on ABC [for example] pre-loads the entire video in the background.

To make matters worse; Even after the entire video has been cached, a steady stream of 200KB/s is still continually streamed from the CDN.

Example link: https://abcnews.go.com/US/noreaster-season-east-coast/story?id=58738494

If you monitor bandwidth with Firefox's network monitor, or a 3rd party tool [like jnettop for Linux], you'll see that the page continues to load video data.

Not only would I expect it to not load any if playback is disabled, but it certainly shouldn't continue to load data, perpetually, after the entire video has been buffered.

Sync symbol shows up to date on my laptop and my desktop.. But the items I have chosen to synch -- for now only "Open Tabs" are not identical. Furthermore I am fundamentally confused as to how FF will decide which computer is "primary." In other words if I have Bookmarks in Computer A and B and I want A to prevail -- how do I set that up? What am I missing here?

I'd love to use Firefox on an Apple TV, even if it has to be the fifth generation 4K Apple TV or newer, since it'll certainly work very well with all the apps I use on my black 64 GB iPhone 6s Plus, and maybe an Apple Watch this Christmas of 2019. If Mozilla can make it work on Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Echo, I'm sure they can make it work on Apple TV in addition to those two Amazon devices! One of the many reasons Firefox is my much preferred web browser is that it has the most compatibility and interoperability across operating systems out there, and I'm sure it can work on more!

I ran into an issue with a pop-up window that didn't want to close, and a simple google search provided the answer of abandon all open tabs and start from scratch... That's not particularly an idea I fancy!

I actually discovered a very simple solution, but I can't post it anywhere because all of the posts are archived!

The malicious pop-up was opening another window, to supposedly enter access credentials. This was keeping me from being able to close the window, and when I closed this alternate window, it would pop right back before I could do anything else. A light bulb forms!

I disabled my computers wireless connection, via the network and internet settings, and the pop-up was no longer able to restore the access credentials window. Close the malicious pop-up, and restore internet connection!

I would like to share this work-around with others that may have a similar issue, but can't find any open posts about it. Can a Mod help me out with this task?

Background:

Was forced to upgrade to version 65 which broke the tabs on bottom setting. Tried to install a ESR version but it kept crashing. Went back to version 64 which was immediately forced to upgrade to the broken version again (which I didn't allow).

The problem is this. The people who have implemented this forced upgrade feature are probably using Windows 10 (forced updating) and are used to being treated like second class citizens by Microsoft. Forced upgrading is completely inappropriate. I've used browsers since Netscape, all of the Firefox versions, rarely use any other browser. Never had a problem except with your forced updates.

Lucky for me I found the registry fix for admins to disable updates. Reasonably inconvenient but a hell of a lot better than putting up with forced updates that break the browser.

Question:

How about bringing back the choice to upgrade. How about, at least giving two reminders to upgrade and then disabling the messaging. This messaging is extremely disrespectful - i.e. we are going to keep on annoying you until you upgrade (to a broken system).

But the whole save/open dialog starts unresponsive, and I cannot choose between save or open the download file for a while. Once I click save or open, it gets unresponsive again and I have to wait a few seconds to move on. It's a pain.

I use a dual screen PC and a website that brings up a popup window to confirm an action and it always opens the popup on the primary monitor, even though my main Firefox window is open on my second screen. I've tested this on multiple PCs.

This is using Windows 10 (latest updates) with the latest Firefox.
