Hello,

Since 2 days ago, I've been unable to stream Amazon prime videos via Firefox. I'd get the error "Video unavailable. For assistance, please go to amazon help".

Amazon prime videos stream fine in Chrome Amazon prime app on my Android phone also works fine.

I have tried everything on the amazon help page (unless they don't apply), still won't work.

(List of their tips:

   * Close the Prime Video app on your device (or your web browser, if you're watching on your computer).
   * Restart your computer or connected device.
   * Ensure that your device or web browser has the latest updates.
   * Ensure that you’re not using the same account on multiple devices - you can only stream the same title to two devices at a time.
   * Ensure that any external device is connected to your TV or display using an HDMI cable that is compatible with HDCP 1.4 (for HD content) or HDCP 2.2 (for UHD and/or HDR content).
   * Pause other Internet activity – especially if other devices are using the network at the same time.
   * Check your Internet connection. You may need to restart your connected device and/or router.
   * If you’re able to connect to the Internet on other devices, update your connect device’s DNS settings. Please check with your device’s manufacturer for further details.
   * If you’re attempting to control a device using Alexa, try to unpair then pair the device again in the Alexa app.
   * Deactivate any VPN or proxy servers. )


Similar issue with Audible. Cannot play anything via Firefox. It's just frozen. Audible app on my phone works fine.

Thanks for your time

When I ask WordPress to "preview in new tab," I get a File Not Found screen. (See uploaded image.) This works fine in Chrome (which I rarely use) but not in Firefox, so I'm thinking it might be a Firefox issue. The Tablet and Mobile previews work fine, but they don't require a new tab. I thought it might have to do with pop-ups, so I made my blog's URL an exception. That didn't help. Then I disabled the pop-up blocker altogether. That didn't help either. I've never had this problem before although I've been using both Firefox and WordPress for many years. I'm working on an old laptop (current one is kaput), but I think everything's up to date. Windows 10. Any idea what the problem might be? TIA for any help. This is driving me nuts!

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

When I join a Google Hangout and try to share my entire screen, Firefox always prompts me whether to share a window or the entire screen. I always want to share the entire screen. But when I enable the checkbox for "Remember this decision" I get this warning: Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen.

Why does this happen? Is it because I'm on a unbuntu or is it specific to ubuntu Catalina?

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

Firefox not responding when I open the mobile hotspot on my laptop. I'm not sure if the problem is the program itself or windows or my laptop, but chrome seems to be working fine when I open hotspot, so I thought Firefox has something to do about it?

For more context, I don't have wifi connection in my new apartment, but I do have ethernet cable connection. That's why when I do need wifi for my phone I just open the mobile hotspot in my laptop. When I do, Firefox suddenly crashes/not responding and I have to close it. Same thing happens with discord, but I only lose connection, it doesn't crash. Sure I can use chrome, but all my bookmarks are all in firefox.

This only happened recently, June 2022. I didn't have any problem the month before, I was able to use hotspot while using Firefox at the same time.

Anyone have any idea whats the problem and/or how to fix? Thanks.
