Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit) doesn't play YouTube videso in Private Window. The same videso play in s statdrad new window. Try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fiVciCs8zU which ironically won't play in private! Every time you press the play button you get about half a second of play before pausing. In standard mode it plays just fine.

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

Yesterday for most of the day Yahoo mail was working fine. Last night I was able to pull up my emails, but all the controls were not working, Can't delete, arrow up or down, settings won't come up. It's like all the tabs are not highlighted to click on. I haven't done any updates, nothing changed. It's not Yahoo, works fine in Chrome.

I know this has been referred to in other topics but they appear they have been closed without a resolution from Firefox. This problem is one of the many reasons users should not take the updates that Firefox forces upon you: too many problems incorporated which take too long to fix. It took me a long while to find a working method which Firefox wouldn't broadcast, but I got there in the end. Google just doesn't update, it broadcast the changes well in advance allowing developers to adapt before the roll out. Developers who don't work for Firefox that is! I had stopped updates as they make more problems than they fix, but had to try the latest as Google maps stopped working: All I get is a blank webpage with nothing showing. Others have suggested a plugin etc. etc. etc., but this does not solve the fact that other browser don't have this problem and neither does Firefox! What! You read this right! version 52.0 works without a hitch with Google maps, so a way of getting Firefox to work is to revert to a previous version which doesn't have the dodgy embedded code. So why exactly are we waiting for an update for something that has worked in the past but has now stopped because the developers either don't know how to fix it or can't be bothered. Firefox are clearly showing they are not coping with updates as well as the competition. I use the term loosely, as Firefox appear to have given up entirely!

Hi, I am using Firefox 103.0.2 on a M1 Mac with an external sound card with multiple stereo outputs pairs (1-2, 3-4, etc.)

Whatever the system selection for default stereo output is (e.g., 3-4), firefox will systematically select the first output pair (1-2) of the external sound card. All other applications (Chrome, Safari, Music, etc.) output on the selected default stereo output (3-4)

I can see I am not the only one to face the problem but threads are hard to read and understand.

Thanks for your help! Theo

I keep trying to sign in on my new Win 10 laptop. I have been double-checking my email and password each time; I am 100% certain they are correct, as I receive an account authorization email each time I try; when it's obviously incorrect, it does not send this email.

When I enter the code I am given, I am told my password is incorrect. Okay, no problem, I still have my old device where I'm still signed in. I tried to change the password -- old password is incorrect?!

I have had the same password for much longer than what is likely recommended for security reasons. I *know* what it is and yet I'm still being told it's incorrect.

Please help me. I can't work on my projects without my browser set up properly on my new PC. It's absurd that I can't even change it on my old PC.

Hello,

After installing Firefox (103.0.2) on a clean install of Manjaro (21.3.7) Gnome (42.4), I started noticing that mouse hover effects such as highlighted tabs, UI of a video-player appearing etc. are delayed after my PC exits hibernation (I am not sure if that is the only cause and if that really IS the cause). Weirdly enough the select menu I used to answer the "Which topic best describes your question?" question to create this post experiences no delay in highlighting the hovered element. Relaunching Firefox fixes this issue temporarily.

To be clear this is no performance issue since everything except mouse hover related interactions are fluid.

Thanks for helping out

//Firefox 103.0.1; Linux 5.10; Debian 11.4.0; xserver-xorg 1:7.7; Nvidia 515.57 driver// After clicking on ->Web Browsing -> Firefox there is NO visible response for 26 seconds... then a normal application window opens and Firefox appears to be operating normally. Opening via command line gives the following "error/information" message(s): glxtest: VA-API test failed, failed to initialize VAAPI connection. For the TWENTY-SIX seconds(!) Firefox is apparently trying to connect to a service that is not available. Is there something in "Settings" or in "about:config" that I can do to skip the "glxtest" and/or other glx VAAPI related configuration options? Or, alternatively, am I missing something in the X-window configuration or another library package that is necessary to support the VA-API feature? The Nvidia driver indicates it is providing "GLX server" version 1.4 . [Troubleshooting information / Share Data attached]

Since the list description is "Everything you are using and signed into.", it it true that my firefox account has been compromised?

In most of the apps running on MacOS, you have inside the standard "Window" top menu, a lot of options, like: - Minimize - Zoom - Tile Window to the Left - Tile Window to the Right - Move to <monitor name> ... ...etc

In Firefox (I'm using developer version, 103b), we only get the first 2 options (minimize and zoom). I have set shortcuts to easy move my windows around my monitors, but they don't work in Firefox, because those shortcuts relies on the presence of the menu option "Move to <monitor>".

Is it by design, or is there a way to get this option in the Window menu? I'm attaching the menu clip from Chrome and Firefox to illustrate the issue.

I use the Dragon NaturallySpeaking add-on to navigate Firefox (and my entire computer) by voice. Recently the extension stopped working properly, and when I tried to uninstall and re-install the plug-in, it would not work at all.

This is the installation link Nuance provides: https://dnsriacontent.nuance.com/15/setup/ffinstall.html.

When you try to click the "Install" button, nothing happens. This has caused Dragon to stop working with almost the entirety of Firefox. Please advise on if an update is coming.

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?
