Certain websites timing out in Firefox but not Safari

On both my old laptop and a new one (so a new installation of Firefox), I'm unable to load Frontier Airlines' website (www.flyfrontier.com) and get a time-out message:


The connection has timed out

The server at flyfrontier.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.


This happens even with all of my extensions disabled, with enhanced tracking protection turned off for that site and with HTTPS-only mode and DNS over HTTPS disabled. It also happens when using Firefox in safe mode. Safari loads the same website very quickly and with no problems. Does anyone know what might be going wrong? Thanks.

Hallo there, somebody knows how I could on my side the log out timeout of any website where I have a login some longer? I am using a forum (ubuntuforums.org) quite often and after only few minutes I am logged out, I have to login again. This is annoying. I would love to manipulate such logins so that the site thinks, I just logged in and does NOT log me out automatically after x minutes or seconds.

Is there such Add-On or setting? I guess its the expiration date of session cookies, isnt it that, where these log outs are calculated? Thanks for hints, I am on Firefox latest (119.0) on Windows and Ubuntu. frank

I often see that some pages take up too much memory. This critically affects the performance of my laptop with 8 GB of memory. However, I was unable to reproduce this behaviour. Now I have caught two web pages.

https://linuxhandbook.com/sort-top-command/ 

and https://www.tutorialspoint.com/how-to-find-number-of-ram-slots-in-linux The first page quickly takes up 1-2GB and continues to drain memory. The maximum usage was 7 GB on a laptop with 16 GB of memory. This behaviour is the same in Firefox and Chrome. The second page quickly takes up 2GB, which is very noticeable on 8GB laptops. Why do these pages take up so much memory? Most importantly, how can you protect yourself from such an unexpected memory consumption?

I tried to watch a youtube livestream today and it failed to play. Non-live videos on youtube are playing, even the same videos watched as VODs after the stream ends, but the livestreams are providing "Your browser can't play this video" errors.

Simultaneously, I'm noticing that some videos on Reddit (such as embedded tiktok videos) are stuck with a circling ring and won't play. At least some of the same videos will play on Tiktok (when I can find them).

ALSO, when I try to watch videos on my Nebula subscription, I'm getting a "This video could not be loaded: 4" error code. ANY video on Nebula.

I have a Logitech mouse. I've used it with both Brave and Chrome problem without problems highlighting text. But the highlight function doesn't work properly with the mouse in FF.

I can double click and highlight a paragraph. I can highlight a single word with no problem. But when I try to highlight a series of words or a full sentence, I can't. Either it highlights but when I try to Copy the highlight disappears. Or when I drag the mouse to highlight it won't highlight at all.

Since the issue only occurs in Firefox and not other browsers, there has to be something in Firefox that's causing this; or some conflict causing highlighting not to work.

I'd be grateful for any ideas how to fix this. It's driving me crazy.

Hello,

Whenever I open a local HTML file, Firefox tab will crash. This happens if the HTML file size is big (>4MB), smaller file doesn't crash.

I've tried opening the file on Chrome, it doesn't crash and open just fine. So it seems like this is a bug with Firefox.

I've uploaded the HTML file if anyone wants to test: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ipmu7ugrd2vvelr/LICENSES.chromium.html.zip/file

I use Kubuntu 23.04 with Firefox from mozillateam/ppa apt repository, got update to FF 119 today (package 119.0+build1-0ubuntu0.23.04.1~mt1) and after the update Firefox stopped using system-wide installed fonts (either from /usr/share/fonts or from ~/.local/share/fonts).

So for example fc-list finds Gentium Plus (/usr/share/fonts), Iosevka and Junicode (~/.local/share/fonts) on my system: % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'gentium plus:' Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Italic.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-BoldItalic.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Bold.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Regular.ttf % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'iosevka:' Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'junicode:' Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Bold.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Regular.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Italic.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-BoldItalic.otf

but when I try to apply the style `font-family: Gentium Plus`, `font-family: Iosevka`, or `font-family: Junicode` to an element, Firefox doesn’t use those fonts and instead in the element inspector I see Noto Serif is being used instead.

Before the update the appropriate system fonts were being chosen for rendering by Firefox.

Hello.

Lately i found strange bug in FF 119.0 (ppa - deb, not snap version), ubuntu 23.10 I can't download any file to mounted ntfs volume. Firefox instead creates thousands of empty files.

There is one domain that I get a "server not found" error for even after doing many things to fix it including everything here, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can#firefox:win10:fx119, checking blocked URLs in the registry, running malware checks, safe mode, reinstalling FF after removing all FF folders from my system.

Before I did a completely clean reinstall, disabling the Open H264 codec (see attached screenshot) would allow me to access the site. But thinking it was needed, I did the clean reinstall. Now disabling it does not allow access to the site.

So far, I have not found any other websites with this problem. It's a .edu domain which happens to be the one I work for! What else can I do?

As described in this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1431159#answer-1618832), I had a problem accessing one particular domain after doing everything I could find to fix it. Setting DNS to Increased Protection fixed it. It's partly just curiosity but also concern that I'm asking if there is an issue that should be addressed.

The basic scenario: could not access one particular domain only in FF on one computer. No problems with FF on other devices and no problem with other browsers on the computer in question. Configuring DNS settings to Increased Protection is the only thing that allowed me to access that site (which happens to be the org I work for). So the setting is only necessary on this device and only for that domain.

What's the explanation or solution for ensuring I don't have other DNS issues, or something else, that will be a problem later?
