Posting here at the recommendation of a friend. I'm completely at a loss to what is causing this issue, but when I have Firefox open, and go to enter a voice call on Discord or a video call on Signal, I get a severe (upwards of 5 seconds) lag on the call that makes it impossible to communicate. I am using desktop clients for both Discord and Signal, so my guess is that something about Firefox is severely taxing my internet (bandwith I think?), but I have no clear indication as to what is doing it or how to fix it.

This has only started happening since making the switch to Firefox (i.e. doesn't occur on Chrome). I thought it might have something to do with some of the anti-tracking extensions I had installed, but even with only Firefox Recommended extensions, and also with no extensions enabled at all, the issue persists. Starting a call after quitting Firefox encounters no lag issues.

The weird thing is that I can enter a video call on Signal, and then open a link to YouTube sent by someone I'm talking to, and I am able to navigate that specific website and watch videos perfectly fine with no lag on the video call, but the second I click the 'New Tab' button or navigate to any other kind of website, the lag spike starts. Closing the tab doesn't fix the issue, only closing the browser does.

I tried doing a refresh of Firefox to see if that would resolve the issue, but it has made no difference to the problem. The only way I am able to be on a call in other programs is if I have Firefox closed.

I'm currently going to have to go back to Chrome in order to be able to play DnD with my online friends next week, but I was really starting to enjoy using Firefox so I'm hoping someone has an answer for what is going on so that it can be resolved.

Hello,

I am trying to execute some script inside an script tag of an svg graphic. All is working fine except for the "setTimeout" function. I am pretty sure that this had worked a few year before. Here is my example code:

https://pastebin.com/mkdMiQ83

I would expect to see an alert window every second. This is working in IE11 but not in the latest Firefox. Is this a bug or a feature? :-) I just wanted to ask here first before creating a bug report. Thank you for your answers in advance!

The thumbnails on the home page look just fine, but the smaller ones of suggested videos when I watch something suddenly look so blurry and pixelated.

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I currently have the updated Firefox. Up until yesterday. I have saved many logins and passwords. however yesterday all of my logins were erased from the browser. In the support page it says that as of Firefox 80 if you press the dots you can import from a file, but that is not an option on my Firefox. I have tried the support page but nothing seems to work to keep all my passwords. I redid al my login and passwords, and then they disappeared hours later again

Greetings,

I've noticed that since the recent update to 85.0.2, right clicking in the search bar to paste information on Google no longer functions properly.

If I've just opened the browser, and not done a thing with it, it will work. If I've visited any sites at all, and used the 'home' button to get back to Google, or opened a new tab to do so, right clicking the search field does not open the contextual menu as it should.

Other search engines work fine, and oddly enough, if I type something random into the main Google search page, the search field on the results page (at the top of the page) works as it should. The only issue appears to be with the 'main' search field on any but the initial opening of the browser home page.

I'm not sure of the cause, beyond noting that it began right after I updated to 85.0.2.

Hi,

I am using Windows 10 Edition Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on ‎24-‎08-‎2020 OS build 19042.804 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit) is my main browser

This issue has been bothering me for a very long time and hence I have turned here for help.

Whenever my Windows shuts down abruptly (due to power failure,etc) upon restart everything else works fine EXCEPT Firefox

Internet works well on ALL other browsers EXCEPT Firefox.

My current workaround is to restart Windows TWICE and ONLY Then Firefox works normally.

I have checked: 1. Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can From <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can> but this does not seem relevant as no changes have been made to any setting

2. Firefox may have shut down abnormally, leaving the lock file in place. To fix this, open the profile folder (see Finding your profile without opening Firefox) and delete the parent.lock file. From <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding#w_remove-the-profile-lock-file> I have tried to delete the parent.lock file and restart Firefox but there is no benefit. Websites do not open

The ONLY step which seems to work is to RESTART Windows TWICE.

Can anyone please guide me on how to fix this APART from restarting Windows TWICE?

Thanks a lot!

Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2
