What's with youtube this week? Earlier there were issues with buffering every now and then, which I've read was google to make firefox users change browser to chromium-based one (chromium browsers didn't had buffering problem). But now videos won't even start to play just buffer endlessly. I've read somewhere that youtube changed something on the server side and now third party apps may have problems playing video. I don't have playback issues on vivaldi or chrome but I don't want to switch browser.

I have Chrome on chromebook. I just loaded Firefox for Chromebook it seems to work fine except. When I put it on YouTube and a streaming station that is sharing live like a news station. after a while it will apparently just freeze stop and shut off. Not immediately, but eventually. Chrome on the other hand will play this station all day long and never have a blip. Is there a setting in Firefox that I need to allow this live streaming video to keep playing and a not to freeze or stop thank you

I provide IT support for an 80 year old friend. He uses Windows 7 and Firefox ESR. He has Firefox home as the home page. He had 3 rows of icons showing on Firefox homepage. However today the home page did not show any icons when Firefox was started. Since then about 10 websites have been visited but only 2 show on the home page (Settings Home Shortcuts [for sites saved or visited] is ticked with 3 rows specified. Saved bookmarks are still present as are the saved login credentials.

Any ideas as to why the home page 'lost' all the icons? Why are many of the visited sites not showing on the homepage and how can they be shown? Are there any criteria that apply before a visited website shows on the Firefox homepage?

Thanks for any advice.

I'm not sure why I get this message: "This site isn't currently available in the EU", but only on my Windows 11 laptop. I don't get the message on my cell phone; instead it goes right to the website. They both use Mozilla/Firefox. here's an example: "https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1/messages/AN6WxktugKP1Zo6E-gXQSGxZLg4." Connection button shows that the site is secure. I have not cleared the cookies. When I select any one of the subjects in the email which are usually local news items I get this response: "This site isn't currently available in the EU." Here's an example of one of the items: "https://www.audacy.com/wwjnewsradio/news/local/michigan-man-guilty-of-making-threat-of-msu-stage-act-2?utm_source=WWJ-AM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WWJ-AM%20NEWSLETTER&utm_content=WWJ%20Daily%20Recurring%20Newsletter&mi_u=1655089&mi_ecmp=WWJ%20Daily%20Recurring%20Newsletter."

The problem is I'm not in the EU and it appears that I might be dealing with a tracker but when I scan the computer there is no evidence of that. Is there something else that might be going on?

Firefox updated this morning and now I have 3 "recent searches" added into the drop down from the address bar. And my frequently used addresses are now 5, I think it was 6 until today. Also the top 2 lines are search with Amazon and search with Google.

Is there anyway to get rid of the new recent searches, and also the search with Amazon and google? I don't want or need either of these "features", just my most used site addresses.

Make amazon and Google search go away and take the "recent searches" with them.

HOW?????

I guess he first question is why a new iteration of Firefox is opened when I already have it running.

I have 2 workstations and I use firefox as my primary web browser for both workstations. My office computer gets secure connection failed which is my main computer but I'm able to logon with my laptop computer without any issues. The site is internal which access our monitoring software for wireless. I'm able to access the site via other browsers, Chrome & Edge on my office computer without any issues. Not sure what else I can do to make this work on my office computer since this is the main computer I use. The following is what I get:

Mozilla Firefox will not open websites for gooutdoors, millets or blacks, or any linked to the 'blacks' group. Their website addresses are all different but there is clearly some association with the group.

No messages, just a blank screen as though continually waiting.

Used to be ok but this issue has been consistent for at least the last two weeks, and there have been no changes to equipment or software in that time.

Have cleared cache and cookies, and restarted the router but makes no difference.

These websites open ok on my phone, which uses google chrome, so specific to firefox. I use norton 360 on both pc and phone and have done for last couple of years with no issue.

Previous post from around 3 years ago show this issue has occurred for other people in the past and no solution provided, where some reported the problem evewntually disappeared on its own with no explanation, but don't think it lasted this long.

Help please.

I am able to set Firefox as my default browser, but as soon as I close out, it is no longer the default browser.

Another issue I have is that I have a message at the top of the Settings page indicating that some other organization is managing Firefox. I have read all the support notes on this problem, but the one the instruction that I think would work is grayed out so I can't change the parameter.
