After the most recent (or possibly the one before) Firefox update, when I am streaming radio via a radio player website, the stream keeps switching itself off after 10 minutes regardless of other activity on the machine.

Apparently, this was reported a while ago (ca. 2020) but has only affected my experience per the above updates.

Windows 10, latest Firefox version, e.g., url: https://siradio.si/val202/ but same behaviour with others sites.

I'm having trouble with my laptop battery and my laptop completely died. I got it working again but now Firefox doesn't have my logins for some reason. The Profile folder showed logins.json, logins.json.corrupt, and logins-backup.json. I changed logins.json to logins-old.json and changed logins.json.corrupt to logins.json like I saw in many solutions but that does not work. It just becomes logins.json.corrupt again. I tried the same with Logins-backup.json but still just changed to corrupt. I refreshed firefox but still the same. I made a new profile and copied the file and tried to get it to work there but still changes back to corrupt every time. I'm Windows 8.1 so there is no Previous Versions tab in properties so I can't go back to a previous version of the file. Is there ajny way to fix this and get my passwords back?

I am a long time (decades) user of Firefox. I run Firefox on Macbook, Android, iPad, and Windows 10. One of the features I use a lot, is the sending of tabs from one device to another. Mostly with the iPad being the target. Recently, Firefox crashed on the iPad. Not a problem, I thought. Firefox has crashed before and machines running Firefox have crashed before. Firefox has always nicely restored tabs that were open at the time of the crash. Not so after this crash on the iPad. Selecting the button to restore tabs did not restore anything. I quickly opened the tabs that were synchronised from the iPad on my Macbook. Firefox on the iPad had lost the way altogether. There were 3 entries in the synchronisation database for it now, two with identical name. Sending tabs to the ipad could only be done to the wrong name. Renaming the machine on the iPad did not result in corrections, so I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox on the iPad. This did not correct the issues, so I deleted the iPad Firefox devices (all for the same device) from the Macbook. That worked. After that I set up the proper name for the device on the iPad, and sync and sending tabs worked again. The next problem was that web pages that worked before did not open in Firefox on the iPad any more. Some cookie settings pages worked alright. The cookie settings page for my newspaper did not work any more. No way at all to get to those settings. The pages for my newspaper also did not load to the end any more, making Firefox on the iPad quite useless for me. I have tried several things, including uninstalling and installing again, deleting all web content from within Firefox, restarting the iPad, … Nothing solves these problems. What I noted during all these actions in Firefox on the iPad is that most of the time the Settings -> Data Management -> Web Site Data acttion kept showing a little thingy going round and round and round and round. I have only seen web site data there once. Anyway, since it looks as if Firefox does not work any more on my iPad and is not restorable, it seems, I am now switching to Chrome. I find this very disappointing, as I really like (a working) Firefox as my browser. Nice features, good privacy, works everywhere (until recently). Not withstanding that, I do need a good, functional browser. So, for the moment I am switching to the Google Chrome browser. Because I use the sending of tabs between device very frequently, I am going to switch on all my devices. I really hope to hear in the near future that the iPad issues for Firefox are fixed. Good chance that I will then switch back to Firefox.

Hi, I have recently reset my phone and lost all my Google Authenticator codes. This required me to jump through a lot of hoops to get access back to all of my accounts (I'm still in the process for some accounts). On one occasion, I had backup recovery codes, but they weren't working. I noted that some organisations have the ability to view your recovery key and codes, and others don't. Does Firefox have the ability to do this so that users know that if something happens, they will be able to recover? If not, is this something they can implement?

Kind Regards, M.

Hi all,

Firefox browser hangs on page graphics when GData AV program is running. This is becoming a persistent and annoying issue. I disabled the several add-ons one by one, and narrowed it down to the GData AV program. This also affects trying to log out of gmail where the hang is perfect. Disabling GData this, and warm reset everything then works fine. The problems don´t occur with GChrome.

How can one be sure which embedded program is actually causing the problem as all work and interface together ?

I already have a profile with all the extensions, passwords, bookmarks, etc., that I want, with FDE. I want to start using Nightly, but dislike the continual moving of passwords & bookmarks, so I just want to use Firefox Sync for this.

(1) Is Sync a good option for me here? I would use FDE & Nightly on the same laptop.

(2) If my plan is ok, what is the best way to start with a new Nightly profile (which I would then Sync)? I tried deleting my old Nightly profile, uninstalling Nightly, and then downloading & uninstalling Nightly again, but every time I do this (including a reboot after uninstalling), I get a profile cannot be loaded error message every time I try to start Nightly. I don't want to use an old profile with Nightly, because I do not want to sync old data at all.

Suggestions?

I have KODI/Linux as my means to Watch TV & Movies.

I also like to watch AFL Football, Live Streamed using Kayo Subscription on Firefox.

When watching AFL Football Video Streaming, I encounter a Serious Video Buffering Problem, whereby the Video constantly stops, but the Audio continues. I do not Stream other Videos.

I have read an article that states that Bitrate can be adjusted to improve this annoying condition, but I cannot find a Setting for this in my Firefox or other Browsers.

Can an Expert on Live Streaming pass Comment on this Problem and how it can be corrected at the Customers End. Thank you.

In Firefox Settings I have PDF downloads set to 'Always Ask' ... this used to work well enough (although, depending on my file download dialog choice to 'Open with Firefox', 'Open with - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC' or 'Save File', I seem to be accumulating duplicate PDF file copies in Downloads\Mozilla.org\Downloads ... the duplicate file redundancy is very annoying), however, with the latest update to Firefox, now I am unable to direct download PDFs from the down-arrow symbol within a given e-mail's Gmail attachment icon ... I can view the file in Gmail by clicking on the body of the Gmail attachment icon but the download button within the Gmail file viewer (top right) doesn't work either. So far as I can tell, this behaviour is confined to Gmail alone (i.e.: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox) ... I am able to get the file download dialog for PDF document download links at other websites and successfully retrieve PDF files. What have the developers changed now? Whatever it was, quit it.

For the last two days, I have been unable to properly open AOL on my laptop using my default browser, Firefox. No ability to read email and the whole presentation was drastically different and unusable. I can open AOL just fine on my IPhone through the AOL app or by just checking mail. I called tech support at AOL and they directed me to use a different browser. I switched to Google Chrome and could see the normal AOL in both the classic and new format. I hope that you figure out what the interface problem is as I prefer Firefox's privacy and other policies. But I can't use it on my laptop unless you solve the problem. Just sayin'.

phil.schreiber9664@gmail.com said

Everytime I try to close my Firefox browser window, it just stops. There are multiple processes taking in excess of 200 or 300K in memory that seem to be causing the problem. I have to manually end the process just to close Firefox, and it is quite annoying. I just checked, my Firefox is up to date. Yesterday I deleted and re-installed Firefox, but it's still doing the same thing. This is kind of driving me nuts to be honest. I have Chrome, Opera, and Edge also installed on my computer so I'm ready to jetisson Firefox but thought I'd see what the community has to say first.

UPDATE - Firefox worked great for a few days but the issue returned not too soon after that. Whatever happened in the last update was only good temporarily. I've already done all the initial troubleshooting steps and believe I may have discovered the root cause of the issue.

There are multiple processes in Firefox whose size is over 100,000 kilobytes in size. Some are over 200K, 300K, and 400K.

As I compare this with other browsers I have on my computer, Edge has no processes over 100K, and neither does Chrome or Opera. I believe this is not coincidence, there is something internal to Firefox which creates large processes that is causing delays in closing it. Once again the problem has started annoying me and has started giving me thoughts of switching browsers again.

You can see it in the screenshots I posted.

Ref Firefox Ver 84.0.1 OS > Win 7-64 Dear Firefox Support,

 I have already contacted MS support about the subject issue and they were no help.

I am trying to find out what is causing the issue and how to get rid of it.

 I can't be sure but it may be caused by a Microsoft "START" App.  The issue appeared

to begin about two weeks ago, so it's obviously caused by something new, which may be Microsoft related. Below is Dropbox link to a screen capture of the issue.

 Any tips for ridding my PC / Firefox browser of the issue will be greatly appreciated.
 And thank you for the superb browser.
