Long time Firefox user here - been on from the start (about 2005), and don't want to switch because I love some features like the Panorama View extension, Context Search extension etc, and it's always been a great browser.

Recently though (not sure if it's just recently, or I've only just noticed), it's so slow. I tried a brand new profile, no extensions, no settings changes, and it's the same. Example loading times:

bbc.co.uk/news Firefox: 14s Edge: 2s chess.com Firefox: 19s Edge: 4s chess.com play vs computer Firefox 38s Edge 2s

https://youtu.be/er9jBysL0vEFirefox vs Edge (YouTube)

So it's not my profile settings or extensions.

BUT, I tried it on a different user profile on the same computer (Switch User from the Windows Start menu), and it's fast!

Why is this, and what do I need to do on my user account to speed Firefox up (keeping my same Firefox profile)?

Thanks in advance.

Pretty much title.

Since about two weeks when I open firefox the browser freezes every few minutes for 10-15 seconds. Launching firefox in Safe Mode or disabling all extensions didn't help. When I open Task Manager during freezes it shows that Firefox is "Not responding" and when I open sub-tasks it's usually one or two causing the problem. When I close those either firefox closes completely or youtube or reddit crashes, leading me to believe it's something with those sites? Refreshing or reinstalling firefox hasn't helped. I'm on Windows 10 (all updates installed) and Firefox 84.0.1 (x64) as of the time writing this.

I hope someone can help and suggest something. I would hate to switch to another browser, but the problem has become unbearable.

We have a site that for some reason just started getting blocked by FireFox's Tracking content setting in private browsing mode. We have a Production build that still works but our QA build does not. For the life of my I can't figure out what changed that would have triggered Tracking content to start blocking the site. Basically the site will load but we only get a blank page.

Is there any way to debug what exactly the Tracking content filter is blocking?

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Hi,

I'm trying to disable the media popup in windows 10, which appears when you lower your volume or skip a song or anything (see added image). I have a brand new pc and on my old pc i was able to fix this easily by doing this: go to about:config and change this: set media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled from true to false.

I did that now, with my new pc as well. But i just does not work, i restarted my browser and pc after changing it, i set it back to true and back to false again, it just will not work.

I googled this issue, but the only solution i find, is what i exactly the thing i described above, nothing else.

I am afraid that I am very confused about the changes to this site. Are the FAQs the only way to learn about the changes, or is there some documentation I am not presently seeing?

In addition, what happened to my older account on this site?

And where exactly are all the other posts, like I would expect to be seeing as if it were a regular forum platform?

Maybe I am more than confused. Maybe I am completely lost. Yes, my own stupidity might be a major factor for this confusion I am guilty of!

The two last are correct with all menu'es. How do I get the same i Firefox? I have cleared cookies and cache without any result.

When i use Firefox and i'm logged in YT, time labels and red progress bar at the bottom of thumbnails aren't visible. When i'm logged out, everything works fine. Also, video progress seems not to work too.

Things i've already done: -turned off all extensions -reinstalled firefox browser

I explored html, and it looks like something blocks browser from putting some elements into code or whatever. The time label is called "ytd-thumbnail-overlay-time-status-renderer" and it's contained in "overlays" div. So when i'm logged out from YT, everything works fine, but when i'm logged in, this "overlays" div is empty.

Hello. Sorry to disturb you.

My name is Dominic Simpson. I am contacting here because I am redesigning my website, and in the process have found that there are problems with Firefox. Specifically, I am upgrading the Photography section of my website, which currently looks like this: http://www.dominicsimpson.co.uk/photography.html

My upgrading includes employing Bootstrap frameworks to make the images scale gracefully, while within a responsive container that already exists. In addition, when the user mouses over an image, the image transforms nicely with descriptive text over a blue colour, rather than what is there at the moment, where the user has to click on the image to have a larger one come up in a separate window with a description watermarked in it.

I am finding that Firefox is not displaying the images in this new work-in-progress. This is despite the fact that: 1. I have upgraded to the latest version of Firefox, and have deleted extensions, cookies and cache, as well as checking settings in the Configuration page of Firefox 2. Other web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Opera, have had no problems displaying the images

You can see the new code here on GitHub, together with the CSS: https://github.com/DominicSimpson/photography

The photography section of the CSS is on line 1951 onwards (it’s a huge file).

Is there some kind of code that I can add to the CSS that would make the images appear in Firefox? Look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for reading.


Kind regards

Dominic

Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. 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

Every so often when I am browsing and go onto a website the text becomes all jumbled as if it can't read the font properly. This has only started happening recently. It definitely seems to be a font issue as when I copy the text and paste it into a document it reads perfectly and if I close the browser then open it again the text is back to normal. It seems to happen after I've been using the browser for a while.

So after the wonderful weather the east coast has got over the past few days. Internet is out with no eta when it will be fixed. So I have to use apple hotspot. Ive noticed on firefox I only get up to 2.5 mbps download speeds. If I do a speed test it shows 36 to 44 mbps . Booted onto my old ssd drive with the same version of windows ten and as far as I know firefox. Firefox works fine on that drive. Ive also found out microsoft edge also works fine on my main m.2 ssd . I have no idea why firefox would be so slow, its like its limiting my speeds . But I checked and the throttling is turned off. I tried to uninstall firefox and reinstall didn't help.

I have no idea why speed test.net shows im getting 40+ mbps and youtube videos or just surfing the web is stuck at 2.5 mbps. any help or ideas would be great. Thanks.

Hi, I use office 365 (as an example) on two computers. On one all is fine .. if I double click on an email in my outlook inbox the popup windows opens in foreground. On another computer I have (both have all firefox updates installed) popups open behind the browser - so I actually don't see that anything has happened.

I tried restartig FF without addons. I tried using another user container. I searched the net but only found tipps that were quite old.

Anyone have an idea what I can do to prevent windows from opening behind the browser?
