hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

Firefox update (about 4 weeks ago?) resulted in losing access to various accounts eg: bank, health care provider. Forced to use Chrome (blech!) Websites now state that I'm using an "unsupported browser". Have contacted host sites and they are unresponsive and/or unable to provide solution. Can still access bank etc from Android phone but forced to use other browsers from MacBook Pro.

Thank you for your assistance!

Figured out the basic issue (from Solutions here) why old Firefox not working on old XP-SP3. Found 52.9.0esr download - but when I run the file, it keeps telling me to "Close Firefox". Used Task Manager - nothing - not Firefox or anything else - is shown to be running. Any ideas? Might not be a Firefox issue, but would appreciate any insights. TIA - Jean

I was using one of the old Firefox ESR versions (can't remember exactly which) because I was still on an old Mac OS version, 10.9 to be more specific.

I recently updated to macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and as a result, as soon as I opened Firefox, I went to check if it would update on its own and it did. It updated to version 91.6.0 esr. After this update, something weird happened: the browser won't load any page.

I checked, it's not an internet connection, because other browsers are working normally. It won't load any extensions either. So I want to fix this issue with an update.

The question is this: I remember installing what was called Firefox Quantum. As of now, the name on the about section is just Firefox Browser, maybe because of the updates. • Can I install the latest "regular" Firefox 97.0 on top of the this old installation, just using a standalone dmg file? • Will this installation preserve everything that's already in the browser? By everything I mean bookmarks, extensions, history, cookies, etc.

It seems to me that the automatic updater isn't installing version 97.0 on its own because it's coming from the ESR versions. So it's stopped at 91.6.0 esr.

Thanks in advance

I've written about this before, but no help? I'm using Firefox Mac 78.15 (up to date). When I go to CNN and select a video, a thumbnail (still image) of the video appears, but no player with controls, so no video. When I do the same on Chrome, I get a video in a video player, which plays just fine. Also, all other videos on FIrefox (YouTube Fox News, etc.) play just fine?

Has Mozilla stopped processing crash reports for older versions of Firefox like Firefox ESR v52.9.0 (the legacy version for Win XP and Vista)? I tried to filter crash reports on the Mozilla Crash Report site at https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/home/product/Firefox for older versions of Firefox but I can't select a Firefox version older than v68.4.1 (i.e., the current FF ESR version) - see attached image.

I'm trying to assist a Vista SP2 / Firefox ESR v52.9.0 user who is trying to troubleshoot their browser crashes but they've told me they are having problems submitting their crash reports from about:crashes. I just want to make sure that Mozilla is still processing crash reports for older version of Firefox if the user submits them from about:crashes manually, assuming the crash report is less than 6 months old.

Hi, volunteers!

About an every every hour or two, Firefox shows a compelled "Restart required" page with a "Firefox has just been updated in the background" message, which yet absolutely sure has nothing to do with disabled automatic updates.

These and pyllyukko's user.js preferences have been set:

  • browser.cache.disk.enable;false
  • browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl;false
  • browser.cache.memory.capacity;5000000 # -1
  • browser.cache.memory.enable;true

The page is shown either hard or solid state drive is used with 8 GB RAM on board, `free -h` shows more than enough. "Storage disk location" value for `memory` and `disk` (except `appcache`) from the `about:cache` page is "none, only stored in memory".

Appreciate your time and efforts, this message haunts me no matter what for so long.

Hello,

It is suspected that latest version of Firefox version 78.11.0esr (64-bit) is causing operathing systems to crash. I have not seen it on Windows platform as I am not using it. Platforms I am using are OSX and XUbuntu. The error occurs lingering on a site for a very long time. First it starts getting screen graphic errors like, some pixels are not being updated correctly. Then after a while screen starts to flicker, in a massive state, like the graphic processor is broken. In some cases with command key strokes one is able to kill Firefox, screen is back to normal and one can continue working. Facebook is the site that most commonly is causing error, but there are also other sites.

Hello, I have issues with some (not all) websites. The problem is that text is not displaying properly all of a sudden. Some letters display and the rest not. The text can be highlighted but still not displaying. I tried to refresh Firefox, Restart with Add-ONs disabled, tried to reinstall FIrefox. Manually tried to disable all Add-ons as well. Then I tried some of the suggestions here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Set-Cookie/SameSite#browser_compatibility

No matter what I try it's not working well. There was a browser update to version 78.12.0esr (64-bit) made around 20 days ago and had no issues till now. I'm used to Firefox and using it for work a lot and prefer to keep using it. Buttons (links) are not displaying as well but are clickable and opening the content. Screenshots are uploaded as well.

If anyone could suggest how to work it out would be much appreciated. If other details are needed please let me know.
