« on: 2021/11/06, 13:24:21 »
Seems 93.0-1+b1 and 94.0-1 may be affected as of writing.
If you upgraded to either of these, feel free to drop a comment about your experience. I have stayed on 93.0-1 for now until we learn more about the issue.

I have seen the issue with 93.0-1+b1, but after upgrading to 94.0-1 yesterday, it didn't reproduce yet.

One question, which video device are you all using?

https://mastransky.wordpress.com/2021/10/30/firefox-94-comes-with-egl-on-x11/

Quote
Firefox 94 is coming out next week and brings awesome news. OpenGL EGL backend its enabled by default on Intel/AMD and recent Mesa for users on X11
...
NVIDIA is also working on EGL & DMA-Buf support in their proprietary drivers so there’s a hope for owners of such FOSS unfriendly hardware.

So give Firefox 94 a try. If anything goes wrong, please file a bug. You can also disable EGL and switch back to GLX. Go to about:config page and flip gfx.x11-egl.force-disabled preference and restart browser.

hmm...
It's not a random behavior here. At least I have a side were it is reproduceable every time. But as it is a slot game side I dont like to promote it here. One can not set really money there and for trying one may get free points by registrating. So if someone is interested for testing purposes I may give a link per pm and tell how to reproduce.

User sergio suggested yesterday on the mailing list that the problem is reproducible (even on a clean profile) by just browsing https://soundcloud.com/

So I played around with soundcloud, no problems at all ,as long as the addblocker is disabled ;),
At the moment I do not have any problems with FF, I am using FF a lot.
I can't reproduce it!™

EDIT: I have to revert it, here it hangs when I follow a link, and it doesn't load!
If the link loads fast, there is no problem, strange, very strange.
When I restart FF the problem with that link is gone.
Maybe they were too fast to enable that egl feature.
So at the most time of using FF there are no problems, maybe it is an addon like uBlock or something similar causing it!?

EDIT-EDIT:
I can reproduce it, open many links till it starts to get slow and slower to open a link because it needs more and more bandwidth, by stressing the  connection. (started FF in the --safe-mode)

Code: [Select]
LANG=C apt policy firefox
firefox:
  Installed: 94.0-1
  Candidate: 94.0-1
Code: [Select]
inxi -G
Graphics:  Device-1: Intel Core Processor Integrated Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.11 driver: loaded: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa resolution: 1440x900~60Hz

With the new firefox it seems to be solved so far for me
Code: [Select]
apt policy firefox
firefox:
  Installiert:           94.0-2
  Installationskandidat: 94.0-2
  Versionstabelle:
 *** 94.0-2 500
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
Linux is highly user friendly, it is just highly selective who it is friends with.
