Starting with my bank's web site, my user name/password is being challenged. I can't bank. Elsewhere, where my desk top has always been recognized, I'm now forced to log in each time...and I receive an email that a new device has just logged into my account. All of this suspiciously coincides with a recent browser update. On my bank feedback it's showing as Firefox "125"...when all previous logins were recorded as Firefox "124". Help!

Since the update to version 125 Firefox on Windows 11 (all updates installed), when I open a new tab and start typing to the address bar WHILE the VPN to the office is active, Firefox locks up and can not be used anymore.

In taskmanager, there is no spike in memory or cpu usage visible. All I can do at this point is to kill Firefox via taskmanager.

I can enter anything in the address bar of an already open tab with an other website open, I can open new tab from the bookmarks, but I can not open a new tab and start typing in the address bar while the VPN is active.

Once I disable the VPN to the ovvice, everything goes back to normal.

I never had this issue on a previous version of Firefox.

Any ideas whats causing this?

After Firefox updates itself, the restarted browser session is unresponsive to mouse clicks - can't follow links, can't respond to UI dialog boxes, the browser is unusable for practical purposes. It's fixed after another manual restart. This unfortunately breaks all the streamlining Firefox has done to restore the session after an update, because none of that stuff works the same after a manual quit and restart. This is happening on MacOS, and it happens across multiple computers.

Hi I wish to have Firefox 125.0.2 and 124.02 'separate instances', not different profiles...

I already have 125.0.2 installed with various Profiles.

I found a 'few' links and they were quite 'cloudy' and also since Firefox (now) does not have the 'ask you WHERE to' install... I vaguely remember years ago, it was possible.

I do not mid doing tweaking, I also already have backups of profiles, just in case!

Thank you in advance M

PS it seems Mozilla does not want us to install multiple instances (perception)!

I'm running Firefox 102.4.0 ESR (32 bit) on a Win-7 (32 bit) PC.

It works fine. I visit a LOT of websites, it works fine.

Until just now. I'm trying to bring up namecheap.com (a domain registrar) and I'm getting this message:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.namecheap.com. security library failure. Error code: SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE

I'm not given any option to alter any FF settings or to otherwise create an exception to "trust" this site to be able to access it.

I've read where changing security.pki.crlite_mode (currently 3) to something else (like 0) and I've tried that, and unless I have to close and restart FF for that to take effect (which I have not done) then that setting doesn't fix the issue.

What exactly is going on here? Why is only THAT SITE giving me problems?

This is a problem I've had for a while and thought it would be eventually fixed, but no luck so far.

TL;DR - Almost every time I add or remove monitors my Firefox hangs.

More context: I use a PC laptop and constantly switch from using just the laptop screen to using just a set of two monitors, with the laptop closed. What I do is, I lock my machine, with Firefox open on the laptop screen, connect the monitors, close the laptop lid, and unlock the machine. That causes Firefox to hang and I'm forced to kill it and open it back again. It usually reopens all tabs without a problem but the issue is pretty annoying.

My current version is 125.0.2 and I'm sure the problem dates from several versions

I am having the same issues as the person in this thread, but unlike their situation, firefox has not fixed itself out of nowhere. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1104044

Everything in the firefox browser looks like it was stretched it out in MSPaint, while my actual OS interface and every other app/software UI looks fine. I have tried simply restarting my computer, as well as every solution in the linked thread, as well as refreshing firefox, and uninstalling/reinstalling, which only served to mess up my shortcuts on the home page. To be clear:

  • Hardware acceleration is turned OFF, as suggested in any thread I've found where a resolution issue is addressed.
  • setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.25 specifically makes it almost legible. Almost. It's still incredibly grainy. Any higher even a small portion of a webpage takes up a ridiculous portion of my screen, rendering it just as unusable.
  • In messing around in config, I found that setting gfx.color_management.rendering_intent to 5 helped, in so far as it sharpened things up a little, but it did not FIX the issue. Any value above 5 seems to have zero effect or change.
  • Absolutely EVERYTHING else except firefox looks absolutely fine. It is ONLY firefox that is having this issue of all the applications/interfaces on my computer.
  • Everything in firefox is affected- images, text, the tabs and address bar, bookmarks bar, absolutely everything.

Out of nowhere, my cursor speed in Firefox has slowed to a truly unusable crawl. I refreshed a page and it was suddenly inching along at worse than a snail's pace. I'm using a USB trackball mouse. This is only affecting Firefox; no other applications have this issue. Using Windows 10.

Here's what I've tried so far:

  • Restart Firefox
  • Started Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Restart computer
  • Create a new profile in Firefox
  • Check my mouse's firmware
  • Try a different mouse

There was another question about this years ago, but the accepted answer about accidentally enabling a Windows accessibility feature doesn't say which feature it is or how to disable it (if that's indeed the case). The link also seems to redirect to a generic accessibility page.

hello everyone; i have a strange issue with my yubikey and firefox on redhat linux 8. (i can't upgrade to red hat 9 and it's technically oracle linux)

its works fine for the first x hours (where x is usually between 1 and 3 hours) and then firefox will invariably stop recognizing the yubikey touch. yubikey works with any other application in that journalctl shows that systemd is aware of it's existence when i plug/unplug it and i get a string in my terminal and text editors whenever i touch they key both before and after it stops working with firefox.

i've tried these things but the behavior is still the same: - regenerating my ~/.mozilla configuration directory - toggling all *webauth* keys in about:config - switching from yum to flatpak firefox installation - switching from gnome to kde to xfce - switching from Wayland to X11

there are no error messages; journalctl doesn't show any either; and chrome doesn't seem to have this problem, but i don't trust chrome and, interestingly, chrome exhibits the same behavior when using xfce.

the only thing that works reliability is rebooting each time it happens and, as you can imagine, that's 100% intrusive and i lose all momentum in my productivity.

here's details on my system:

Firefox version: 115.10.0esr (64-bit)

OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.9 (Ootpa) Oracle Linux Server release 8.9 5.15.0-205.149.5.1.el8uek.x86_64

I have support licensing from both Oracle and Yubikey and i've asked them for help and they both point the finger at each other so i'm stuck with this; any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

I was using FF on Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS. Had version FF 120.x and playing video in Netflix worked fine. Then I updated to FF 124.x and playing video stopped with error F7355-1203.

I've checked the DRM setting and it is enabled, I checked addons and I have OpenH264 and Widevine installed, both set to always active.

I've checked installed codecs and I do have libavcodec58 installed. No update for that available via apt. I also have ffmpeg installed, no problem with that either. I can play Netflix videos in Chrome, but not in Firefox now. Something happened to Firefox when I updated from 120.x to 124.x. Today I updated to 125.x, same problem, Netflix video won't play.

I've unchecked the DRM setting and re-checked it, and that does reinstalled Widevine but does not fix the problem.

Any ideas what could be the cause?

I keep getting this message that pops up in a private window to restart to keep using firefox. Everytime I click restart Firefox, it closes my tabs and opens them again. However, 5 minutes later the window pops up again. Even after repeated attempts of updating, even doing a full restart on the computer, Firefox continues to send this window to me. The private window in the bar says about:restartrequired.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox with a fresh install as well as doing a Refresh of Firefox. Neither seem to solve this problem.
