Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

I have this problem. It just showed up after installing a brand new ARRIS modem exactly like the one I had. "Your connection is not secure" error when trying to log in to my modem's login page at the local address. There are several fixes that I saw, none seem to help. Tried the SSL refresh and it screwed up the browser. Now I get to figure out how I had it set up before the "refresh". Like I said this just started in Firefox and it prevents me from accessing the modem console period. If I use Edge it does not block me. (yuk) It does show a "Not Secure" message in the address bar but it will allow me to access my Modem. Why cant we get a fix for this. Its a local web address not on the internet. Should be a way to add to a allow local address list and ignore certificates or whatever else is causing it to block access.....

Email me when someone answers the thread seems to be broken on this page. I would like a email please so I can find a response.

After doing an update to Firefox (currently on 102.0.1), the settings for what happens when I click on a PDF file always seems to reset to 'save file', when what I want (and what I have to keep changing back to) is 'Always ask'.

Is this a known issue or is it something about my environment that causes this?

My system is running Windows 11 on an HP laptop with an AMD 7-5800U CPU and 8Gb of memory. [I'm posting this on my desktop machine which doesn't seem to exhibit the same behaviour - Windows 10 on an Intel 8500 CPU and 16Gb of memory]

thanks for any advice.

I've been using Firefox for 25+ years, always keeping it up to date. I've been a customer of CIBC Bank for 20+ years and using their online website since its beginning. Last week I've been unable to login to my accounts without going thru an inconvenient and time-consuming telephone code procedure every time. Previously, this procedure had been in place only occasionally as a secondary method of identification.

CIBC advised changing my anti-tracking and cookie settings. After trying all the alternatives, there was no change. Checked out Edge browser, and it was the same. Checked out Firefox and Edge on a second computer and it was the same. Installed the Chrome browser, and it works fine!

No problems accessing any other website. Anyone ever experienced this? Any suggestions?

There is this weird bug(?) that popped up like within a day or so. When searching for some terms with Google in Firefox, the search result would repeat itself. For example, searching for terms like "ab", "abc", or "hgi" would result in two searches, but not "def". So let's say if I search for "ab" twice, I would get 4 search histories of "ab".

One curious thing I noticed is that if I already have a non-blank tab opened before the search, going back to it and then going forward to any search that would repeat itself would prompt it to produce two search histories again. The problem to this is that if there were other searches further up the tab's histories (I usually search for multiple things within the same tab), they would essentially be lost (I turned off search and form history) when the search repeated itself, since it would act like I made a new search of the same term.

I have updated the Firefox browser to the latest stable version 103.0.1, and the problem persists. I tried to replicate this on Chrome to no avail. It's irking me to no end, so any help is much appreciated.

YouTube worked fine in the past, but for at least the last few days (likely longer) Firefox 103.0.1 won't play anything. Chrome works fine still. Other large transfers work fine.

Latest video I tried to play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkN8Aqb2IBc Is a DND group playing with an actor from The Outpost (TV show on CW)

In Firefox I see the initial video preview image, and after clicking to play I get a constant spinning progress animation but the video never plays. Turning on the debug overlay info shows plenty of download capacity detected (I forget the name in the UI) but very little ever transfers (bars further down).

Only oddity I can see in the debug info it puts in the the clipboard is the wrong Angle GPU. I have 2 x NVIDIA 1080ti's in SLI, and it sees a 980. Chrome shows the expected value instead. I filed a bug on the Angle project just in case. I looked on the Firefox about:support page with hardware acceleration disabled and it showed two webgl driver entries (1 and 2), both with 1080ti listed.

I tried disabling the performance feature setting and hardware acceleration (closed app then opened again). No difference.

Windows 10 x64, latest patches. Latest NVIDIA drivers through GFE (auto updates itself). Two Windows 10 graphics options are on (GPU scheduler and Variable Refresh Rate).

I've seen a couple notifications from Windows about Firefox "attempting" to use GPU hw acceleration, but I have no idea why it'd be blocked. Clicked it and it did nothing. I looked in my event viewer and didn't find anything useful either. I haven't manually set any applications to use a certain GPU. Integrated GPU from CPU is disabled in BIOS.

GPU isn't overclocked. CPU is barely. And I see no reason to think this is related. In the past I'd get reboots and event viewer errors. Even when it worked in the past I was similarly overclocked. All programs (diagnostics) I've run to verify proper functioning have passed.

I asked this before, but I do not understand the thinking/logic for the answer I got. I have a specific website I want to maintain the cookies it writes to my computer. When I enter those cookie urls into the EXCEPTIONS dialogue box/window, then set to delete history on exit from FF, why won't the exceptions save those specific cookies? I don't get why there is an exceptions function if I cannot make those exceptions apply and save my specific website cookies.

If there is no helpful answer, there is no need to reply. In any fashion. Ever.

Hi,

The saved-telemetry-pings folder in my Firefox profile doesn't get cleaned up of the old telemetry pings, and it just keeps growing over time.

I have pings in this folder that are from October 2021 and I doubt this is a normal behavior.

It's not the first time this thing happen, and October 2021 is probably the last time I cleaned this folder.


How do I make it so it doesn't keep telemetry pings, but I can still use telemetry. I use the beta Firefox, and I'd like to keep some telemetry as some of the devs at Mozilla foolishly rely on the telemetry to slash features, when telemetry is so broken it's better set to disabled than enabled.

Cleared cache, and cookies and everithing multiple times. After 3-4 days it does the same thing. Tried fresh install - after a while starts to do the same thing.

Hi, I created a sign in to a particular account for a website using FF about a year ago & used it several times without issue. I haven't used it in about 6 months & now when I try to sign in, nothing happens. The mouse pointer turns to a pointing hand when I hover over the sign in, but that's it, the tab doesn't refresh & no new tab is opened. It doesn't look like FF recognizes this as a link.

When I right click on other links I get the option to: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Window etc...

but when I right click on this link causing me issues, I get: Save page as... Save Page to Device etc...

It is as though FF doesn't see this as a valid link. I'm using Windows 10 64 bit & FF version 103.0.1 & have FF set to automatic update.

I've run FF in safe mode & no change, suggesting it's not my add-ons.I've Googled the problem & seen examples of what look similar, but no solution seems to work. In particular I've tried the suggestions from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can but none helped.

I don't have any issues with this link in other browsers. Chrome opens it up in an instant & I'm wondering whether it would be just easier switching to Chrome as my default.

I'd love to stick to FF as my default, can anyone help?

I am not sure what category this goes into since I don't know if this is a cookie problem or a security problem or what.

I can download individual files from Google Drive just fine. But when I try to download entire folders from Google Drive, I can't download them as of a couple days ago. It looks the file zips, but then it won't let me actually download the file. Instead I get an error message "Can't download file. To download this file, try enabling third-party cookies for Drive."

The problem first started a couple days ago. (I have Firefox set to update automatically. Checking my update history, it looks like it started with 103.0.1 when it was updated Aug 1) The day the problem started, after trying just about everything, I cleared all my cache, site data, and cookies. That did fix the problem. But today when I got on, the problem came back. It was a huge hassle to log in again and do 2FA for everything again last time. If I have to do that every couple of days, I'm dropping Firefox because as much as I love it I just can't.

My browser privacy settings are set to Standard. I also currently have Firefox set to delete all cookies and site data upon close, with the exception of a list of websites I use every day. That includes drive.google.com. I have since added every google website I can think of, including the ones that it looks like Google tries to access when downloading zipped folders (as seen in Chrome) such as takeout-pa.clients6.google.com.

Things I have also tried besides clearing all site data:

  • starting Firefox with all add-ons disabled
  • turning Enhanced Tracking Protection off entirely on Google Drive
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and changing "Cross-site tracking cookies, and isolate other cross-site cookies" to just "Cross-site tracking cookies"
  • Changing my security settings from Standard to Custom and not blocking any cookies at all
  • Going into about:config and changing the network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault setting from false to true (It was on false when problem started. I changed it back after troubleshooting.)
  • Doing all of the above in various combinations

If it matters, when I was changing the laxByDefault setting, I can see two other settings with that phrase but I don't know what they do exactly. If changing either of these would help, let me know. network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault.disabledHosts [the rest is blank] network.cookie.sameSite.laxPlusPOST.timeout [currently set to 120]

And Google Drive still claims it can't download zipped files. I am going slightly insane because I have to download several large folders from Google Drive every day. Currently my solution is to download all files in Chrome.

I can also try uninstalling and going back to 102 somehow, but that's not a good permanent solution. I guess I can also try clearing the cache again. But there's got to be a better way. It's way too much of a hassle to do that every couple of days.

Please help. Thank you.
