I am running Firefox 122.0 on Ubuntu 22.04. When I have a decent number of tabs open, firefox will often randomly decide to lock up completely. GUI is almost entirely unresponsive. I can right click the menu bar area and get the Menu Bar/Bookmark Options/etc. context menu, but it's also screwed up (2 options that are normally there are completely missing). This has occurred for a year or so. Originally, I used the snap version but recently backed up and switched to installing from .deb. Still the same issue. I saw recommendations for turning off hardware acceleration, and that didn't prevent the problem. Running `top`, I see that I always have plenty of memory (at least 10G free) free and worst case 1 thread is being run 100% but the others are hardly being utilized. No crash reports are generated (I will pkill firefox to stop it). Addons and extensions are all disabled.

I recently realized that hitting the windows key with firefox frozen will allow the web page to show again, but it's back to frozen. I keep hitting the windows key, and it will unfreeze just momentarily to show me the current webpage that is up. I can also Ctrl+N and open a new window, and the new window works perfectly fine independent of the completely frozen first window.

When I upload an image with Firefox, it typically shows a red tint. I've seen similar reports from decades ago so I disabled `gfx.color_management.mode` in `about:config`, but that didn't help, even after restarting the browser and the computer. I disabled a couple of related settings, but that also didn't help. What else could I try?

Same as the question.

The display shows some icons on the last tabs I opened but it seems only some basic website layout is loaded but all the details are gone. Like text, button borders, even the exit, fullscreen and minimize buttons. I have seen that this has been an issue for quite some time before so I am looking if there is a fix or a workaround. I have and Nvidia graphics card and drivers if that means anything. And my swap file is 20 GB and my RAM is 16 so the space shouldn't be a problem. It gets fixed when I turn off Firefox but not when I refresh tabs.

The crazy thing is that when I take a screenshot inside firefox (with firefox integrated screenshot option, like when I press right click and then take screenshot. I can see the text so it seems like it is a display problem but this only happens with firefox and not other apps.

Appreciate all the help. I will ask of ubuntu formums next if I don't find a solution here.

Thank you all for reading and answering!

Widevine fails install, Ubuntu 22.04.02 LTS

Issue: When trying to stream video via criterion, progress spinner spins for about a minute and then the website delivers: 'Please try again in a supported browser'. Firefox delivers: 'Firefox is installing components necessary to reproduce the audio or video in this page. Try again later.'

In plug-in manager: Widevine is not enabled, receive alert: '...this will install in a few moments'. It does not actually ever install. In settings: Play content with DRM is enabled.

OS used: UBUNTU 22.04.02 LTS 64 bit

Navigator error: 1694223478579 Toolkit.GMP ERROR GMPInstallManager.simpleCheckAndInstall Could not check for addons: {"status":"failed","results":[{"id":"gmp-widevinecdm","result":"failed"}]} Log.sys.mjs:722

Attempted fixes: 1) Toggling DRM in settings. 2) Firefox & machine restart 3) update & upgrade terminal commands, separately 4) Changing VPN servers & disconnecting VPN (NORD)

Note: Playing videos on Youtube works, as does streaming music via Tidal.
