Hi, For about the last month or so, the Yahoo mail tab closes itself after I click on an email attachment to open the download dialog box. This happens exactly 30 seconds after clicking on the attachment, whether or not I go on to open or save the attachment. It does not happen if I merely 'preview' the image. I don't know if all attachment types behave the same, but it applies at least to jpg and pdf files. The tab can be reinstated via History/Recently closed tabs.

Firefox does not crash, and there are no crash reports. In other respects this is similar to a previous post by 'eladopoulos' on 4/30/22, 8:17 AM (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375635).

Using Safe mode makes no difference. I had set browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, but reseting to True makes no difference. Thanks in advance.

I've recently been having troubles playing videos on Firefox.

My school website uses Vimeo embeds, but recently when I've put the videos in fullscreen, after 4-5 seconds it stops responding. The video freezes but the audio continues, and the controls don't come up when I move the mouse. I can press ESC to exit fullscreen, but the controls are still gone and the audio keeps playing. Then after a few more seconds I get the warning "This page is slowing down Firefox, to speed up your browser stop this page".

If I don't use fullscreen but instead zoom in on the page, it also freezes. If I try the same things with Edge it does not freeze. I also made sure that it was only affecting Vimeo videos, by testing with other platforms and other vimeo links.

I found previous reports of this issue, but all of them were either on Linux, or it was an issue with flash player, which is not relevant anymore.

Not quite sure how to debug this but I would be happy to provide further info. It's really important that it works again :/ Thanks in advance!

My repro steps: 1. Find a video on https://vimeo.com/watch 2. Play it and enter fullscreen 3. Wait around 6 seconds

I seem to have that bug that was fixed a few updates ago where videos won't play. I have the latest version of Firefox. For example, YouTube will load and the page, progress bar and even subtitles will show, but the video will just have the spinning circle. I have tried videos on other websites (Facebook, Tumblr) and they won't play either.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox, refreshed Firefox, disabled all add-ons, allowed autoplay of videos/audio but nothing works. The videos all work on Chrome and Edge.

The new version of Firefox runs very slowly, tabs take long time to load and is slowing down other operations on computer while waits for mouse to re-appear etc. Had downloaded a previous version, then firefox automatically updated and back into sheet mode. Now your ridiculous download previous version page is very much less than helpful as just keeps trying to get you to load newest (crap/buggy) version. Uninstalled firefox and computer works well again. I've used firefox for long time, but will change to something else if cant access a download for previous version that allows better operation while wait for a perhaps better working newer version. Learned lesson with windows updates over the years, not gonna use your current version of firefox.

For the last few months (perhaps concurrent with a Firefox update, but I don't remember), Firefox seems to be having problems with Google-sourced stuff. It's intermittent, but the most frequent failures are searches using either the address field or the dedicated search field - much of the time I just get a blank page, and at first it looks like it might be trying to load something, but after awhile the "X" abort icon changes to the reload icon, signaling that it thinks it is loaded or has given up. Success or failure seems to come in waves or phases, not completely random - immediately retrying will usually not work. If I can get to the Google home page by typing "google.com" directly (which has a much better batting average than searching in the address/search fields, although not always), I can search directly on the Google page without trouble for some mysterious reason (perhaps that fills the page using AJAX rather than reloading - I'm not sure). But then clicking on one of the results might not work, because that initially goes to a Google URL before redirecting to the requested page. I've resorted to extracting the page location from that redirection URL just to bypass Google.

Other Google services have problems, too. YouTube's home page usually loads outlines of videos, but sometimes it fails to fill in thumbnails and other details or does so VERY slowly. Occasionally even reCaptcha will fail to load when I'm trying to log into some site that uses it. And even when something appears to fully load and function (e.g. a couple Google Sheets I use daily), often the "stop loading this page" X and hourglass on the tab will remain, indicating that it thinks something is still loading (in that case, it seems to never time out - I either click the X or ignore it). All these types of failures started at the same time, so they seem to have a common cause.

I have not noticed any problems with sources that are not owned by Google. And Chrome and Edge have no problems at all. So apparently it's specifically Firefox and Google that are not getting along. I'm running Firefox 108.0.1 (in PortableApps, although located on my hard drive) on Windows 11.

These failures happen even if I start Firefox in troubleshooting mode (which proves it's not caused by an add-on) or open Google in a private window so that there are no cookies involved. Since Chrome works, I also tried using the User-Agent Switcher add-on to pretend I'm Chrome, but that also has no effect. I expected to see tons of other complaints about this on the web, but there have been surprisingly few, and the only suggestion that seemed relevant (and effective for some people) was to set "security.tls.enable_0rtt_data" to false, but that has not made any noticeable difference in my case.

I waited through a couple Firefox updates, hoping it would just get well, but I've lost patience. Are there any new ideas out there?

Hi, so yesterday, I updated to the latest version of FireFox (version 105.0). Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary until I decided to watch a few YouTube videos. The best way I can describe this problem is that every time I decide to scroll down to see the description or read a few comments, the entire screen on my laptop goes black regardless if it's on default view or full screen.

Even though that does sound like a crash, the audio still plays, and if I power the computer to sleep mode and log back in, the window of the video automatically scrolls up and everything is back to the way it was (but I did had to restart the laptop once because it also visually broke my mouse pointer). The only way I can get around this problem is to pause whatever video I watch and then scroll down, and no black screen occurs.

I don't know if I'm the only one who has this problem, but I've never had this issue happen in past versions of FireFox. If there is another way to fix this problem, I'll be glad to take anyone's possible suggestions/solutions.
