Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Suddenly, Firefox stopped autofilling urls in my url bar and only offers search terms. Occasionally a url will show up there on autofill but only is triggered from beginning characters of the url rather than something in the middle.

Previously, when searching for something like https://mywebsite/particular-page/ , I could type "particular" in the url window and FF would offer the full url. Now, there is no such behavior and I have to think of the opening url and complete many more characters to get the result that previously was very simple and quick.

I have tried separating the search from the url window but that has no affect on this behavior.

Enhanced Tracking prevents me from logging into Firefox. All attempts while on would lead to a "500 server error" that was noted and to be looked into. After a 24hr time frame of the same results, I disabled the 'purple shield' on the series of pages loaded in order to sign into help. That allowed me to successfully sign into help and 'close' the question about Firefox not retaining page zoom setting (privacy.resistFingerprinting TRUE was the culprit). Above was a statement, my question is why would by default Enhanced Tracking prevent mozilla.org support site from working?

Hi, thanks for clicking the post.

I have become very interested in the Logitech Craft keyboard. It has a wheel at the top left that has different functionality for different applications.

What I would want it to do is to be used as a simple scroll up/down in Firefox and other web browsers.

I have asked the community at Logitech's website and was told by a dude there that the Crown wheel in fact cannot be used as a simple scroll. Which seems to me like a major blunder as it is to me the first obvious thing for a wheel.

My question is if the information I got was incorrect. But if not, then I would very much appreciate if anyone here could tell me if there's any other way to get it, a simple scroll using the Crown wheel, working for Firefox.

Many thanks! Regards / B

When using screen sharing, FF (up to the latest release 88) offers to share each of the open applications or the full screen. What's missing is to share just one of 3 monitors, if that's what one is using. Chrome has that option, but FF doesn't. Is that on the roadmap to be added? Or is there a plugin or hidden setting that would allow me to do that already?

Searching for non-ascii characters will also match normalized ascii counterparts, leading to too many false positive matches.

For example, searching for the character "å" matches both "a" and "å" on the page.

We should be able to configure whether to normalize the characters or to use strict matching.

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".

I typed www.netflix.com in the address line and Netflix tried to come up. But I got a huge black page with an error message.

 Error Code F7702-1003 

At the top of the page in a thin yellow box it says

 The WidevineCdm plug-in has crashed. 

It suggested that I reload the page and the plug-in would reset itself. I did but it didn't.

How do I fix this problem?

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

I found in 87.0 and now 88.0 that even after uninstalling and installing a new version, there is after clicking Menu/Options a message on top of the window:

" ! Your browser is controlled by your organisation" This is not true, there is no organisation on this PC. After clicking the link here is a new window saying there is a application active that is called "Disable App Update". After clicking "documentation" on the left side there opens a list of applications to modify the operation of Firefox. When clicking the Disable App Udate there opens a application text with on top GitHub and activities from M.Kaply Show/ Home Button Policy Strange that it says Disable Firefox Updates. Is this application installed by you? Are you perhaps 'the organisation'? Please let me know if this is safe or not.
