  1. 1 I set the Manage Data tab to 'Allow' for sites I want cookies saved for. This sets the http and https addresses for the sites I enter.
  2. 2 I set the same sites in the 'Manage Exceptions' tab so that these sites do not have their cookies deleted.
  3. 3 Save Settings
  4. 4 Close and re-open Firefox. All cookies are deleted.

I suspect this is a bug?

Cheers.

I have been running "Ancestry.com" on Firefox" for a number of years without any issues. The last few weeks if I open Ancestry to a window that shows a family tree the window freezes and I get a notice that says "This window is slowing down your browser" and it gives me a button with a "Stop" option. When I click the button the window unfreezes for one click and freezes again. This only happens in a "tree" window, the rest of the application works OK. I have done many of the troubleshooting steps, renew refresh, clear cache etc. with no improvement. I checked with "Ancestry" the recommend Firefox or Chrome. Trying Chrome there was no problem. My preference is Firefox as Chrome is to invasive.

I am running Windows 10 (up to date), an Asus Z87 Plus motherboard, an intel core i7-4770K cpu and a EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost gpu with all drivers up to date. I have Firefox set as my default browser.

Please advise - Thank You John H ( jrhop@hvc.rr.com)

My browser could only display the standard system fonts (such as Microsoft YaHei and Consolas), but not the fonts I installed. I was getting 'Request for font "xxx" blocked at visibility level 2 (requires 3)' from the console on every website that tried to use my local fonts.

The problem appeared in obstacle removal mode, but didn't appear in the latest stable Firefox release.

In the last week or so, iPlayer, All4, and Spotify (that I know of) have stopped working in the Firefox browser. All4's error suggests DRM isn't enabled, the others just say try again. Roll20 hasn't been working for even longer (more like months). They work in Microsoft Edge and Chrome. Youtube is still working, as are video players in social media.

I have tried the following solutions:

  • Firefox is up to date
  • Windows is up to date
  • Updated graphics drivers
  • 'Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.' is set to 'Always Activated' and is up to date
  • 'Play DRM-controlled' content is ticked in about:preferences
  • Checked if anything changed if either of the above were turned off (it did not)
  • media.eme.enabled is set to true in about:config
  • Put Firefox in troubleshooting mode
  • Turned off my addons (including uBlock Origin) manually
  • Tried in a Private Browsing window
  • Turned off Tracking Protection
  • Restarted my laptop

Nothing has fixed the problem, or given me any more indication of what is wrong. I don't know how to a) fix or b) find the problem. All I can think is that it may be related to the recent changes to Chromium regarding ad-blockers? But no one else seems to be having the same problem so I doubt it.

I got a notice that Firefox (and Thunderbird) were updated this morning. Took me an HOUR to find out how to make the miniscule font in my inbox larger. So.. suddenly, new problem.

When I click the Firefox icon to launch the browser, and reopen my tabs, It opens for a millisecond, then closes faster than I can try to read if there is an error. When I click it AGAIN, all my tabs are GONE and I have to search for them manually, which is a royal pain.

Why is this happening? How can I stop it from happening? This is annoying as hell.

I'm trying to use Microsoft Teams in Firefox because the native app for Linux is abandoned and crashes, and at first sight the app is blocking Firefox on purpose. Buttons to make calls are disabled, stating that audio and video are not supported in my browser, but everything works normally if join to existing calls using e.g. links.

Is it possible to trick Teams to think I'm using Chrome? I found the "User-Agent Switcher and Manager" add-on, but I can't figure out how to possibly use it.

For context, I accidentally made my root D: folder into the downloads folder and during this time I was still able to download using firefox. But when I finally changed the folder to my default one, firefox stopped being able to download anything larger than 1gb files. I can still download small images but anything larger than that I can't download. Else, it would only just show "Failed" in the downloads bar.

I've tried: 1. Changing the download location

>Also tried reindicating my download location

2. Turned off dangerous downloads 3. Putting an exception to the sites I try download from 4. Clearing the downloads 5. Tried troubleshooting mode 6. Restarting my computer 7. Restarting Firefox

I can't download on firefox but the same files I can download on Chrome.

Certain images are never created or loaded in my browser. Youtube thumbnails, for example, display as only light grey squares. I thought maybe my addons might be causing this, but the only one that seems capable is uBlock Origin, and I even disabled it completely. Anyone know what could cause this? Surely its a caching issue or something. I can include images if anyones curious.
