Everything was running JUST FINE before i turned on my laptop to find things had changed without my permission. Im just a basic man, not an I.T SPECIALIST. I just want to get on the net, thats it! Is that too much to ask seeing that with free will we chose Firefox, but its no better than any Microsoft crap. Takes hours to correct, if at all what these fools do to my routine online after their stupid updates. These fools must expect that everyone is a qualified proffessional who has plenty of time to fix this update mess. Its not the case FYI Firefox staff. And this stuff has been going on for years too and looks set to never end. Why cant my home page remain the same because guess what, it WAS working great until this so called update. What a mess.Firefox have caused me.

How the hell do i get my ORIGINAL, UNALTERED HOME PAGE BACK? Home tab disapeared as well which is common i see and has been going on for years now without an end in sight.. We seem to be the ones wiping Firefoxs arses, like little babies.

JUST SOME FRIENDLY INTELLIGENT ADVICE. HOW ABOUT DOING UPDATES WITHOUT TURNING EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN. Probably too much common sense for people today. Best thing is to just keep this internet to a minimum or you will be tearing youre out regularly.

Thanks Firefox for wasting my time on numerous occasions. Im very grateful for your expertise.

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

Hello, I have trouble getting sound playback on firefox (checked 85.0 and 78.7.0esr both 64 bit) on windows 10. I checked sound on youtube, and netflix. I checked other applications like spotify and mpv, and soundplayback there is fine. Also it works on Firefox nightly (87.0a1).

What i have already tried: - restarting my computer - opening windows volume mixer and see if firefox is muted - updating my audio driver - different playback devices (Device over HDMI and Line out) - reinstalling firefox - uninstalling firefox, delete folders in C:\Users\$username\AppData\Local C:\Users\$username\AppData\Roaming - new install with fresh downloaded installer - restart to safe mode

Since firefox nightly is working i suspect that maybe the application name "Firefox" is muted somewhere. This could explain why i can reproduce my error on ESR and stable but not on nightly.

Thank you for your help in advance

Greetings.

Whenever I click on a link to Facebook, the page manipulates the browser history, effectively disabling the back button by adding multiple instances of the same page. I read that Google addressed this issue with Chrome a while back, but I don't find anything about a fix for Firefox. Is there one?

Thank in advance. Bill

I noticed ever since I updated to FF ver 85 I started seeing screen tearing when scrolling. This is most noticeable when scrolling through a list of videos or pictures. This only happens on Fire Fox. I do not experience this problem on Chrome. I have already disabled Hardware Acceleration. Made no difference. I'm currently on FF version 86.

Anything else I can try to resolve this issue?

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

YouTube does not work properly.

Before I start, I must mention that I have tried Chrome, Brave and Edge. None of the others have had this problem and I can confidently say that this only happens with Firefox and Firefox Nightly as well.

Something that I should also mention is I have security.enterprise_roots.enabled set to true in about:config. This is because when it's set to false, Any google related webpage shows a Potential Security Warning. I don't know if this has anything to do with the issue I am having with YouTube but I still wanted to mention it.

Finally, the problem - Firefox and Firefox Nightly both get stuck on loading whenever I click on anything on YouTube. Be it the Channel Icon to go to the channel or a video or even the search bar. Anything that should take me to the next page gets stuck. Screenshot is attached. The only way to open the video or the page is to reload it or to stop the loading enter the link and then manually do it every time I need to click on something in YouTube. I have reinstalled Firefox. Reset everything. Even reinstalled windows. But the issue persists. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

This is actually an issue with my wife's Windows 10 computer.

It was working fine earlier today - I was on it doing something. Then, still running, , I right-clicked on a link to open in a new tab, and a new tab opened and nothing loaded. Thought I'd made a mistake and typed in an address. Nothing. Then it started working with me doing nothing more.

Now my wife brings the computer over, and she's having the problem. Even if I try to load tools or options or addons, or type about:config - nothing loads. Just a blank tab. I can open tabs to my heart's content. Just can't put content in them.

Internet is fine and other browsers are working fine accessing the web.

Firefox has the same problem in safe mode, or if refreshed, by the way.

Hello community,

I had some problems with my internet connection. Youtube streams changed frequently their video quality. So I wanted to look up my downstream. To do that I have look into my browser and type the URL "http://fritz.box" into it.

The message I got was that this is not possible anymore (uploaded pic). I had to do it with Google Chrome. That's a disgrace for Mozilla.

I hope it will be possible soon again to surf into my router UI.
