Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

Questions in the main support forum are only indexed by Google if they are marked solved. Questions that are deleted or marked as spam will not be re-indexed by Google. Questions that are closed for any reason by a Mod or Admins I believe fall in to the latter category.

Rather than try to look up the documentation or try to get my head around code it is far simpler to test this live on the forum thus this question. LMGTFY is a fairly rare target string. I will post ths question mark t solved then immediatly close it.

Question posted by a Moderator for test purposes.

I anticipate it will not show up on Google. (I will probably unlock the question later.) I can even test that by using LMGTFY. Note unless you explain exacctly how &/oir or provide the link to the relevant hit from the results of the search. The initialism LMGTFY may be considered offensive: rather like Read The Fine Manual.


Lets also try out the internal searches


N.B. If anyone has good reason to use LMGFY links for a helpful purpose all well and good but please use the full link not the shortened link so that it is clear what you are searching for. Please do not port obfuscated or shortened links on the forum (With the exception, maybe on the Android forum of shortened links copied from Mozilla documentation)

As has been the case with each new update, I recently updated to Firefox 48.0. Since then, I've noticed the longer I get into a session, the more it starts to freeze. It seems to be using quite a bit more memory than even just the immediate previous version of Firefox. When I have to exit the browser when this becomes unbearable, it usually crashes 30 or so seconds after exiting. I get a plug-in container error. This is now to the point, where it's not even worth it to use the browser.

Anyone else having this problem with the new update? I'm pretty sure I have the system specs to run this, all plug-ins are up to date, all graphic drivers are up-to-date, I've experimented with turning on and off hardware acceleration in the browser to no avail. What problem(s) was/were the update supposed to be fixing?

This thread has already been closed, but anyone reading it note it is answered at /questions/1137421#answer-912788 ~J99


I frequently watch streamers on Twitch, however whenever I have Firefox running my taskbar does not auto-hide like I have it set to. I was also curious if there was a way to hide the address bar, tabs bar, and toolbar at the top of the screen? Sort of like an auto-hide for those bars. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Love Firefox, only browser I use!

I have attached an image of what my screen looks like when I open Firefox with the bars I would like to have auto-hidden circled (pardon the caveman like illustrations - made it in paint).

When I enter my username and password, I want to open a new protected Firefox instance but it just complains that it can't locate the profile. I am forced to select it to open in the same window. I am on Dell™ XPS™ L502X, Windows 10 64-Bit , and using Mozilla Firefox 48.0.2. In debugging this problem, I tried to verify the profile by using the Profiler and the add-on Open Profile Folder 1.3.3.1. It shows the correct profile folder but Mozilla Firefox 48.0.2 says it can't find the Profile folder, While it is there! The profile.ini is correct. This used to work for me. Thank you, ~sreyes27

I have noticed that Firefox consume a lot of CPU, heats up computer and drains battery. Attached picture shows usage in safe mode. Everything is up-to-date (fresh system is installed today). Also, all drivers are up-to-date. When watching youtube usage goes even higher. I have never experienced such a thing with Mozilla. Any advice? Same thing with 3D acceleration on/off. I'm running laptop dell 3147 Pentium N3530, 8Gb RAM and 480 ssd. My other computer is older and usage for firefox while watching youtube range from 3% to 15%.

ps. I apologize for any mistakes made in grammar but English is not my first language

ASUS Model Number: X553SA-M02280

I've purchased a number of notebooks/laptops during Black Friday as I did this model. In the past I've called whatever computer company I had purchased and they willingly helped me get rid of the bloatware/junk. I called ASUS and he would "only" suggest resetting. That is not the issue and I read online the ASUS bloatware/junk that could be taken off the computer. I've come here before and all of my questions have brought a complete resolution to every problem.

When I check to see what's dragging my computer down, it's ALL Asus stuff/programs. There's always a willingness to help here and the fact that mozilla firefox keeps crashing (and sending crash reports) will probably result in even more willing help. Although, that will not be necessary! Another thing that is constantly happening is I must Debug Script, restart mozilla firefox and restart computer.

Past notebooks/laptops I've loaded a bunch of stuff on before and after the company helped me and it never caused an issue. This computer, I decided from my purchase date I wasn't going to put all kinds of goodies on it before or after getting help and I certainly believe that I haven't yet and know that I won't after receiving mozilla firefox community help!

It took me about three hours to finally get a screenshot of the programs on this computer using google search only. I am an amateur, but could always and instantly do it on previous versions of Windows.

Thank you so much to mozilla firefox support for any AND all help! You ALL rock!
