I have Firefox set to restore all my tabs that were showing on my previous session. My question is are those tabs actually "open" and adding to the workload of the laptop every day when I power up again? When I do click on one it takes a while to actually open, but during that session if I go back to that tab it instantly is open. I have several hundred tabs saved this way at any time, but am assuming they are not open until the 1st time I open one each session. Thanks!

My dark theme accompanied by the default minimize, maximize and close buttons, I've checked other themes and even those recommended to me by default in the themes tab and it's the same problem.

Is this fixable?

Whenever I have a tab playing any form of audio, and another different tab begins playing audio, both tabs will stutter/pause for about a second, and block each other momentarily. This is especially noticeable whenever I use something like Discord, where the constant pings will frequently interrupt my YouTube video. Even when I mute the Discord tab, it still causes my YouTube video to stutter and pause.

I have tried deleting Firefox completely, and removing all old add-on/extensions, preferences, %appdata% files, etc., and nothing works. I don't get this issue at all when using Chrome or Edge, so I'm having a hard time understanding why this is happening. Many years ago, back when I first used Firefox, I never encountered this issue.

Now that I re-downloaded Firefox this last year, I've had this annoying issue without any way to remove it. I'm quickly approaching my wit's end trying to solve this issue. I have asked a few friends who use Firefox, and none of them have this issue. All the guides from this site so far have proves unhelpful in trying to resolve my issue. If you could help out, please let me know!

In 21.04, I was able to successfully enable VA-API support for Firefox for hardware video acceleration using my amdgpu on Wayland. Mainly, following steps from https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2021/08/enable-hardware-video-acceleration-va-api-for-firefox-in-ubuntu-20-04-18-04-higher/

Since upgraded to 21.10 which uses snap version by default, I've noticed increased CPU usage when playing youtube videos. When I checked by running Firefox from command line, I can see that I can't seems to open vaapi driver correctly:

$ /snap/bin/firefox Importing existing firefox profiles from /home/ymchen/.mozilla/firefox Found default profile: dhjf4r7r.default-1587103347891 Import done in 3.141 s amdgpu: os_same_file_description couldn't determine if two DRM fds reference the same file description. If they do, bad things may happen! libva info: VA-API version 1.7.0 libva info: Trying to open /snap/firefox/631/gnome-platform/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/radeonsi_drv_video.so libva info: va_openDriver() returns -1 libva info: VA-API version 1.7.0 libva info: Trying to open /snap/firefox/631/gnome-platform/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/radeonsi_drv_video.so libva info: va_openDriver() returns -1

Installing firefox from apt, I can see that vaapi still works:

$ /usr/bin/firefox libva info: VA-API version 1.12.0 libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/radeonsi_drv_video.so libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_12 libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0 libva info: VA-API version 1.12.0 libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/radeonsi_drv_video.so libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_1_12 libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0 libva info: VA-API version 1.12.0

Curiously, VA-API version available in snap version is older 1.7.0 compared to the apt installed version 1.12.0. Perhaps the "packaged" version of the dependencies in snap version is outdated?

I've also noticed that the file /snap/firefox/631/gnome-platform/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/radeonsi_drv_video.so does not exist.

Any idea how to get Firefox snap to work with VA-API? Thanks

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

Hi!

I want to change the default serif and monospace fonts (Atkinson Hyperlegible and Hack, respectively) in Firefox. However, the fonts that are listed in the advanced font settings appear to be a specific list that doesn't update with the system-installed fonts, so I cannot pick the previously mentioned fonts. I tried working around by tweaking with the about:config values, but so far no luck. Any advice?

Thanks in advance, Lucas

I used to save all my images to one folder, but it started getting big, and it was difficult to find what I needed, so I created a couple new directories inside that folder (one for cool space images, one for memes, etc.)

When I go to save an image, I have Firefox ask me where to save every time, because I use a few different folders for different things. On any other browser, the folder that would pop up by default is the last one you used. So if I saw a collection of cool space pictures, I should only have to navigate to the "space pictures" folder once.

Firefox refuses to do that. It keeps wanting to save everything in the parent directory. I'm sick of having to navigate to the right directory every single time. How do I make it choose the last folder I used as my default location?

FF 93.0 64-bit - Windows 10

When I booted up the system and ran FF the first time for the day, its window opened, and it even asked for the primary password. After that, nothing I typed in the URL box came out. I could open new tabs but not able to switch to them. All Chromium-based browsers and Edge in the same system worked fine.

I did the following trying to fix the problem: I restarted Win10 and ran FF93. Same problem. I restarted using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I reinstalled using the complete package. Same problem. I installed using FF92 and FF91. Same problem. I refreshed FF93 using Troubleshooting Mode. Same problem. I used Win10 Safe Mode to run FF93. It worked. I uninstalled FF93, removed as much as I could all traces of FF and Mozilla in the Win registry, and reinstalled FF93. Same problem.

In the end, I had to use Win10 Recovery and revert to an earlier date to fix it.

The first incident happened about two weeks ago. It happened again this morning. My use of PC has been routine for years, I would say for more than a decade, or at least in the last five years. No extraordinary applications or routines.

BTW, I haven't updated my Win10 in years, because doing so often times gave me new mysterious issues to troubleshoot, courtesy of MS. You should very well know Win updates produce issues, and the bug fixes following them produce even more. The annoying thing is I would research on the issues and find out later (sometimes days) that the updates were the culprits.

This is the second time it happened to my FF93, and I feel I have to report this to get some idea about why this is happening (only to me?) and how to fix or prevent it without having to go into Recovery (again?).
