when media starts playing on my computer without my consent, this should be considered a cybercime.

The only way for a video to start playing should be `right click -> play`

cut the nonsense with the *media.autoplay.enabled* switch. it doesnt work and it never will. as soon as the website uses any kind of scripting, this switch is ineffective.


which extension do i need to install to stop this autoplay nightmare forever?

I am using the latest version 53.0 of Firefox. I even UNINSTALLED FIREFOX and Re-Installed a brand new Firefox 53.0 , and have the same page freeze / hangup problem !!!

Never had a problem with Firefox for years now -- but as of the last 3 weeks, it keeps hanging up on random occasions , freezes a web page or site. I have to use Task manager (and there I see listed "FIREFOX NOT RESPONDING" ) to click on "END TASK" so as to be able to get out of the frozen page. I thus will loose certain things when Firefox returns. ie; usually the texts in composing a message board message, or composing an email

I have used FIREFOX SAFE MODE and it still freezes up.

When I run a Firefox TEST Mode thruout, I comes up with "Incompatibility Issue" but shows at right side of page a green check mark with word '"FIXED" - But it is NEVER fixed !!!

ALSO, I keep checking in SECURITY SECTION the box for REMEMBER LOGINS FOR SITES -- but every time I leave Firefox, or it closes, or it freezes up --- I have to go back and check that box or my logins do not shop up !

I have almost no extensions (other than Trend Mirco Anti Virus which never gave me problems with Firefox) and no plugins.

So I have tried many things that the support " stock" Q&A material suggests --- but still no fix.

I have seen on line that many people are having this problem. And can't seem to fix it either !

I thought I fixed the problem I went to a new profile but took over Prefs.js and the fast dial folder so my fast dial stuff will still be intact. I installed Youtube HD which makes videos automatically hd so I dont have to select it and thats the only plugin i was running but I uninstalled it and it still crashes. Now my flash player hardware acceleration is disabled but I use 11.7 flash player due to the fact the new flash player 13 and 12 makes my youtube videos freeze up. 11.7 is the only one I found out of all of em that still works right for me. That may be what is causing the crashes. I dont know how to read crash ID's so I leave that up to yall I have two. I Just marked solved on a thread that i had going over the same issue. And for reference I do not have hardware acceleration enabled on firefox it makes the letters weird for some reason So I never use it. I have disabled flash and so far so good but only time will tell and a lot of the sites I go to use flash. I was scrolling my facebook news feed both times when this error happened. Here are the crash ID's

The browser starting hanging, then crashing (it does both) after the last update. I just built my computer 2 weeks ago and all drivers are current. I am running an AMD with Nvidia chips. It is a MSI motherboard.

No other browser crashes. Your browser crashes randomly, but I can sometimes replicate it at https://www.cloudflare.com/ when I click on DNS or Crypto. It also crashes on youtube and randomly on any website. It seems to be stable for a minute before it crashes.

I have disabled hardware acceleration and reinstalled firefox and even reset it. Nothing works for me. The Dev version does the same thing.

This is what happens, the cursor will start spinning and the computer will hang, then crash, or simply crash without warning.

Any suggestions?

I am using the latest version of Firefox Developer Edition (62.0b2). Up until recently operation of the bookmark properties (right-click on a bookmark) remained identical to the old standard Firefox. I used the properties to store various information about a link (typically user name and hint of password). But some time within the past few weeks an update to Developer Edition included a complete overhaul of bookmark properties and all of mine were deleted. Can anyone explain what is happening and I can restore my bookmark properties?

The same amount of size was downloaded 206kbps in FDM but firefox downloads 60 to 80kbps why

the 62mb file takes 10minute and more time to download the file i think the same as the speed to download the streaming content what do you think about it https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/images/2014-07-17-23-29-21-befa12.png

Adi answered Like this fdm downloads a file from several connections and later it appends all downloaded parts into one file. Therefore, it downloads a file in less time. It is controlled by servers of fdm. On the other hand, when firefox setup is downloaded by its installer ( Stub ) it is downloaded from server of Mozilla Firefox over a single connection, it does not download several parts in parallel or simultaneously. Therefore, it is downloaded at a slower rate. but why firefox doesn't offer this feature but chrome downloads 200kb why and how firefox hanging the border

I had a nice cloud theme on firefox with dimmed whitish -grey background for text. The fonts were black. Then I updated an add on called 'font and theme changer', which said it adjusted text, ect to what your preferences are. Well, I had no desire to change my preferences. I updated because it had a note by it saying 'update'. So when I did

my easy on the eyes cloud theme up top disappeared, and my page background turned stark white and killed my eyes.

I have tried for days to get my old configuration back, to no avail. And yes, I have read what you are calling the solution in the options context menu. It doesn't work. All that does is change the background for the tool bars at the top of page. I need to change the background color of things like search pages and site pages that have no specified backgrounds so I don't go blind. Why can't I get my old configuration back. What has happened and what can I do. Again, the context menu solution just changes colors on top; not the background of the pages.

Firefox 53.0.3 (Windows 32-bit on 64-bit OS) hangs if I trying to move focus to address bar while any system tooltip for any element on currently opened page is shown. For example, a New Tab Page is opened. Then, I hover mouse cursor on one of a thumbnails, and a tooltip with target address appears. Then I press F6, and FF immediately stops responding and consumes about 45% of CPU so long time, that I can't wait so much (several hours), and I kill it's process. I tried to repeat it with "-safe-mode" command line option, and result is the same. The tooltip's rectangle stays on top of all windows until FF process is being killed.
