I'm using one website which demands a new password every three months. That would be easy if the Firefox automatic generation of a new secure password worked with this site but it doesn't. Firefox thinks that both the Password and Confirm Password fields are asking for a username instead. Obviously I can take this up with with the website owner too -- but is there any other means of generating an obscure password when Firefox won't do it? An app? A Firefox plug-in?

scaling video to native resolution bypass system scale

Hello there, I wish to play 1080p video in 4k resolution(monitor native) rather than 1440*1.5 in fullscreen mode on youtube. I have a monitor 4k resolution, my win10 setting is 150% scaling(recommended), the youtube viewport size is "2560x1440*1.5" with a "*1.5". When I change win10 to 100%, viewport is "3840x2160". This seems correct but the video quality is lower because it is not a x2 upscale from original 1080p youtube stream, but rather x1.5x1.33. Is there anyway for firefox to render video directly? I am aware I can change system scale each time to play video but that's not what I'm looking for. I guess since firefox is rendering text pixel perfect so it has a solution for this problem. Thanks

i tried to get my REAL ID going finally. i ended up going down a rabbit hole with the DMV and AAA (they help so.cal, but not north cal ???) wasted literally hours. it works great with Chrome. the DMV knows this. i asked why they do not indicate that in big red letters, but they didnt know. the real issue is that the FIREFOX BROWSER SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES, INCLUDING THIS MASSIVE WASTE OF TIME AND STRESS. maybe you guys should tell people about the limitations here, because bu not doing that you are being really less than completely honest. why do you want people to use something that has so many issues ? i have deleted FIREFOX off my windows PC and iPad and will never use it again. i do not trust Mozilla any more. get real or go away please, you are just making problems for people. thank you. if the truth hurts, too bad, it is just like Theranos and the lies. what is in it for you ? a job, making internet use difficult unnecessarily for people ? sorry, no more testing your bugs for free.

YOUR BROWSER DOES NOT WORK WITH THE CALIF STATE DMV REAL ID APPLICATION ON LINE THE CHROME BROWSER WORKS OK

MY OPINION IS TO NOT USE FIREFOX ANY MORE AT ALL ANY IDEA WHAT IS WRONG ? I REALLY DO NOT CARE I HAVE WASTED A LOT OF TIME JUST LETTING OTHERS KNOW SO THEY MAY MOVE ALONG ALSO.

I SEE THIS NOW We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system. Show details »

I have been using Firefox for many years. I always use the most current version, and have it set to check for automatic updates. My computer is current, 10th gen Intel with RTX 3060 graphics card, 1 TB SSD drive, etc. I just loaded up my Firefox and I got a blank screen, and EVERYTHING was deleted, including the 367 bookmarks I have over the last two years, and all my settings!!! I regularly use Revo Unistaller Pro, but this NEVER does anything like what I experienced, only clears cache, cookies, etc etc. I have been using that program for years also, with no issues like this. So it is puzzling to me what just happened. I literally lost ALL my progress in Firefox for the last two years! How did this happen?!?!?

On one website *only* and only with *some* hyperlinks there I have trouble opening the hyperlinks. I can work around the issue, but I am curious what causes it -- and if there is a way to avoid having to work around. Here are the symptoms:

1. (right)Click on the hyperlink and 'open in new tab' --> does not open 2. Same as 1) but 'open in new window' --> does not open 3. Same as above but 'open in new private window' --> opens fine!

Alternatively 1. (plain click) on the link --> does not open 2. above + use back arrow (<-) to go back to page with the hyperlink and then use the forward arrow (->) to return to the hyperlinked page and it opens!

Additional info: FF 107.0.1 (64-bit) on Macbook pro M1 Ventura FF preferences set to open links in new tab, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't depending on the site FF advanced setting browser.search.openintab is set to TRUE (but it failed with FALSE also)

So I am stumped!

Specifically this is interesting because regular youtube content *will play just fine*

This is something I can readily reproduce for testing, diagnosis, and troubleshooting.

Please note: I have literally completed all fundamental troubleshooting several times. I respect due diligence and double checking, its just that I wish to be clear I've spent a few hours today on this and am thus far unable to impact the situation at all. --Note on Note: This includes disabling settings/features in firefox. Everything having to do with privacy, networking, hardware accel, and probably another category has been toggled multiple ways. This does not include mucking about in the detailed settings page ( about:config, etc etc). I do not memorize about:config settings I just use reference material to achieve a goal then promptly move on in life, and I am not a professional web developer though I can program so I haven't attempted to fiddle there at all. All that is to say consider any suggestions involving about:config or similar depth of settings to be *untested by myself on this matter* and therefore ripe for suggestions!

Oh, I also have not tested this in a VM. Although I certainly can if requested. I can note that a VPN does not impact this described behavior.

Well, I am able to get teh Ads to play prior to a live stream, sometimes. Note: Ads are not always displayed anyway so I cannot really know the statistics on this for sure.

At this point I have reinstalled Windows10 several times and can still reproduce this problem. All windows security settings have been toggled without impact on core issue. This has been reproduced through multiple win10 reinstalls.

Other browsers, other operating systems will function. I can use firefox on my various linux systems. I can use several versions of firefox to play these same videos on my linux systems.

However win10 at whatever patch level is unable to utilize firefox to play youtube live streams. Again, nothing I've done has impacted this behavior ( reg yt vids OK w/ preview and chats, live stream vids NOT OK, though ads and chats display fine )

I'm several varieties of engineer (Electrical, Networking, Security, Systems - whatever other varieties HR departments decide to use ) and can happily grab whatever data, or create whatever testing conditions that can be asked of me.

Thank you,

Starting today, on my W10 system, my FF startup is being blocked by a User Profile overlay requiring the creation of my User Profile. This overlay remains in place permanently until I enter a "name" for my about-to-be-created profile. However, upon entering a "name", the overlay and FF app both terminate immediately.

This repeats every time I try starting FF (as Administer) and encounter the User Profile overlay.

I am left wondering if this overlay is malicious on some other systems where security detection is absence?

This User Profile requirement has never been required before (10yrs). Maybe a FF update was auto installed in the last 36 hrs. I checked for pending updates / corrections but only found details of a new Beta version available.

I have a Win10 Restore Point dated 12-7-22 which I could apply. Can I assume FF components (from before this glitch) would be recovered from Restoring this system recovery file?

Appreciating an plausible suggestions, Aiden.C

Some pages in Firefox are displaying 'Wingdings' instead of 'English' characters. This actually included the "Topic" selection in the questions page!!!! (see attached image) It does not happen on most pages, but some that I wish to use are affected. Some sites are partially affected with, for example, drop-down lists displaying incorrectly whist the rest of the page is OK. If I select the affected text and paste it into, say, 'Notepad', the test displays correctly. This only started a couple of months ago following an 'update' to Firefox. (not much of an update if it messes up the application)!!

When I load Chargehub.com into Firefox I should be able to see icons for electric vehicle charging stations plus a menu for such things as plug filters.

However, although the chargehub site loads with a Google map (after selecting Map) I don't get the EV charging station icons or menu. I do get POI icons such as for airfields, cemeteries, parks, churches, etc only when fully zoomed in. The Google zoom symbols and street map view options are also available.

I have not experienced this issue on any other WEB site including Plugshare or Chargemap. Further, when I open Google maps in Firefox and do the search, "ev charging stations in ontario canada", i do see the icons for charging stations.

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox version 107.01 on a desktop computer. Adblock and uBlock origin are installed. However I have the same results when running Firefox in safemode.

I do understand that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7. However, my son is also running Windows 7 on his desktop computer, yet chargehub opens properly on his computer when using Firefox as his browser.

I've tried searching the WEB for an answer but no success so far.

Thank you in advance for any help.
