Hello,

I am using the latest official Firefox build 75.0 on my Macbook Pro 15 inch 2018. Have an odd problem. When I play a video directly on YouTube, the quality is always 360p. Even when I manually switch to 1080p or 4k. It always displays the video in 360p. When the same video is embedded on another website it is possible to switch the quality (and the video is shown in 1080p and/or 4k). Can somebody help me please? It is so annoying! I have added a screenshot of my Addons if helpful.


Greetings from Germany and stay healthy Jan

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I am stuck between two machines and can't stay on beta updates anymore because FF won't let me sync my profiles anymore.

If I can't migrate my beta channel profile to the release channel, how can I quit beta updates until the release channel catches up to me?

FF preference selected is 'download updates but let me install them' but really there is no choice. It installs and next opening of FF it is automatically installed. I already changed about:config preference for update channel to 'release' but FF merrily kept on with beta channel updates.

I need my beta channel profile customizations--varied management of permissions and add-ons and passwords on dozens of sites, customizations to stop the blinking and autoplay and movement and noise.

But: FF won't let me keep them if I go back to release.

So: how can I force FF to stop updating while the release channel catches up?

Mac/Mojave Beta channel 80.something, need to sync with release channel 79

I think this site is relatively safe. It hosts replays of company earnings conference calls with analysts.

http://public.viavid.com/player/index.php?id=140568

The page loads. Some form fields can be filled in, but not the one for email. The insecure connection icon appears.

Is the connection is insecure, why does the page load even partially?

Or is this page an example of mixed content blocking (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox)? If so, why is there is no option to bypass the blocked connection?

Or is something else happening here?

Many thanks

Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox
