I'm using openSUSE Tumbleweed and KDE Plasma. Ever since I updated to Plasma 6.1, Firefox crashes constantly when using Wayland. I'm not having this problem if I'm using X11. Crash reports are sent after every crash so I'm sure someone can reference these. When starting Firefox from a console, I got this message after a crash: "[GFX1-]: Wayland protocol error: wp_linux_drm_syncobj_surface_v1#67: error 5: explicit sync is used, but no release point is set"

Will this get fixed with the next Firefox update? Currently using 127.0.

On Windows 11, for the last two days, whenever I try to open Netflix, it says "WidevineCDM plugin has crashed". I've also tried Amazon Prime Video and Apple TVs+. It always crashes and displays the crash thing and asks me to submit report.

I also use firefox on a Linux distribution that is dualbooted on the same machine. No crashes there. I recently updated my graphic card's vBIOS and firmware(RTX 4080) using the utility provided by the manufacturer of the card. But even after updating this and rebooting, I was able to watch a couple of episodes of a show without any problems. However, the second time I tried to open Netflix after the {graphics card updates + reboot} + {1 or 2 extra reboots} the plugin has been crashing on me constantly.

I think it might be a graphics card thing or a Windows thing. The problem is, there seems to be very little information on troubleshooting anything related to Widevine. I found no information on how to delete it and re-install it. I have tried to enable Integrated graphics only in BIOS and plugged the monitor into one of the motherboard's display output(for integrated graphics). Same result.

I have submitted crash reports: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/3d9cc9fa-7f6b-465a-9895-e2b6b0240724 https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/73835b7c-7393-47ee-94b8-d24410240724

I still have a computer with Windows 7 and I still love using it despite that the world wants me to give it up and upgrade, which I have with several other computers I own, but I enjoy my uncluttered and non-super-spyware-laden Win7 system, but I get the feeling that Firefox is purposely trying to upend a smooth browsing experience for those of us who are stubborn and unwilling to part with our old systems, and yes, I am a VERY suspicious person. They are doing this in Win 7 [and not on any other system I own of higher OS] by having FF constantly writing huge amounts of nothing to my disk, taking no less than a minute each time. What does this do ? It causes STALLING of any and all functions until some internal clock decides to stop and release the system from this turmoil. FF is hoping the user will get so frustrated that they will give up on Win7 and go to the hyper-surveillant Win11, but some of us are infinitely patient and will wait for the day when FF says "You can no longer browse the internet with this version of Firefox," and I know that day will arrive. Thanks, Soros. So my question is, if there's even an answer ; is there anything I can do besides all the usual page long crap of suggestions about computer maintenance, all of which are trite and redundant, so that I do not have to put up with this constant stalling via overwriting to disk ? Even Norton shows logs of FF excessive writing to disk and lists it in the Norton history. None of this EVER happened until the notice arrived, what, a year ago or so, that M$ and FF were no longer supporting Win7. How coincidental that I should now have to endure some kind of psychological torment for not allowing my entire computer experience to be surveilled by the DEMONS THAT BE. Thank you, and if you find my rhetoric too inflammatory, then just forget it, but understand how sick to death of you meatheads I am.

I am sure you have had endless posts regarding this issue, but for me, it is still ongoing. Randomly and without warning, I can have pages full of funky fonts that is unreadable. Usually, closing the browser and reopening it does the trick, but when I have several important tabs opened within the session, that can be a bit of a pain in the ass especially when I reopen, all is lost. Is there something on my end I can do to keep this from occurring. In other browsers, this does not happen. Please help. Thanks. :D

Since "Flash Player" has been discontinued by Adobe since 2020 - and by force since 2021 - what is the solution? Yesterday, it told me I had 20 "tabs" open in Task Manager - but I clearly had less than 10.

The problem here is... my fan gets loud because of this - and that is very frustrating at night. Watching a video, and then hearing a storm brewing, right in your ear.

I've attempted Fan Control software, but it's way too complicated for my capabilities. It seems to do barely anything, unless you have a specific set of hardware - and a certain amount of know-how.

Ps. I am referring to the thread, created 6 years ago, here on the forum. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223023

Hi, I have a disaster situation. I backed up my profile and then I wiped my computer running Ubuntu 20.04. I replaced it with Ubuntu 24.04. Now my profile seems to not be compatible with the Firefox installation on Ubuntu 24.04.

I followed this official instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

I put my old profile in the ~/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/ folder and I set the correct values in profiles.ini. But sadly when I start Firefox all my passwords, extensions and history are not there. I lost everything.

I'm super desperate. Please tell me I can fix this somehow. Why is the official documentation lying?

I have a lot of tabs open, and I don't know which are responsible for the popups. Previously, I'd get 2-3 unexpected popups per day (that were not triggered by navigation in visible tabs), but since yesterday, every ~10min I'm getting 2 popups right after each other.

How do I find out what tab is triggering them?

Besides the annoyance, I find it worrying that firefox apparently "intends" to input login details into background tabs - if I had entered my master password previously, I wouldn't even notice that the password store had been accessed.

It would be really nice if the master password popup had a button to view the triggering tab (and perhaps highlight the fields that would have been filled after unlocking), but until that happens, I really need some way to locate the problematic tab(s)...

Other accounts on this computer can print Firefox and other browser web pages normally. 'Have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox at my account but no fix. Problem started about 2 months ago at my account on this computer (running Win11 Pro). 'Have consulted Microsoft "Help" but their tech/"bot" said it is a 3rd party (ie.

Hello, I have Firefox 128 installed on Window10 Pro v. 22H2 fully up to date. I have LastPass: Free Password Manager extension in my Firefox.

Up until 2 days ago I had an icon on my toolbar for the LastPass extension that I could click after opening Firefox to login to LP. It has worked fine for years. It was that way when I shut down my computer that night. The next morning when I opened FF, that icon was gone. LP still shows in my Add-ons manager as Enabled. To the best of my knowledge, nothing on my comp updated in that time period.

I tried clicking the 'Extensions' button in the FF toolbar, but all it did was to open the "Recommendations" tab of my Add-ons manager. Previously, clicking the 'Extensions' button in my toolbar would show a menu of extensions including LP. I would get an option to show an LP icon in my toolbar. That worked as recently as a few weeks ago when I wiped my hard drive and did a fresh install of Windows.

I tried removing and reinstalling the exension. It made no change. Next I fully removed Firefox with the Remove Programs option in the Windows control panel, then removed all traces of FF in my Windows user profile. Then rebooted. Then DL'ed Firefox fresh from the FF site and re-installed it. Twice. No icon shows up, and the 'Extensions' button continues to do nothing but send me to the 'Recommendations' tab of the add-ons manager.

I had a few other extensions installed as well as LP at the time this problem arose. But when I re-installed Firefox, I only installed LP and tried to get its icon showing before installing any other extensions, just to be sure there was no conflict.

Can you offer any suggestions to help?

Thank you.
