How do i disable autoplay on all websites - even for muted videos?

I can't disable it for all websites by default - i have to set-up individually for each website. It seems that these settings are stored in cookies, because after clearing cookies i have to set it up again.

Hi,

Google Chrome have just dropped an update featuring Tab groups. Holy smokes it is good.

As somebody who frequently has over a thousand tabs open, this is such an awesome feature. Any chance of Firefox getting it?

PS Love Firefox, great browser!

My FF bookmark menu seems be going crazy this morning.

It replicates bookmarks (one or two of them) dozens of times, without provocation, all by itself. I can delete the duplicates, but seconds later, they appear once again.

I restarted FF a couple times. Restarted my computer. Exported, then reimported bookmarks. Tried to uninstall FF, but was then given the option to "refresh," which is what I did.

I thought it may have stabilized, and proceeded to reorganize the bookmarks, whose order had been scrambled. Halfway through the task, the schizo behavior returned.

For some time now i have this problem where sometimes the Player on Youtube does not work properly and covers my reccomendations. I cannot click on them only if i move the mouse into a certain position it is possible. Also if the video is shown as in the screenshot, you cannot go into fullscreen either, the frame stays the same and everything else is black. In this case the buttons do not work anymore and i can only close it with pressing the ESC Button.

What I tried so far: - Installed the latest update of Firefox - Tried Firefox Safe Mode (same problem) - I deleted my browser history (same problem)

It seems to happen when i open up a new Youtube Tab. Using the same window and just click on the next videos works normally.

I am a student that use Firefox everywhere and for everything, but the only problem that I have ever had is this now, I was required to use Ubuntu linux for computer networks and I decided that I am going to use this OS for my entire course as my main OS, but problem is that I cannot see the videos from Echo360.co.uk which is a site that we use for our online lectures. Please fix this bug and don't make me install some trash (chr) in my pc :D

How to set default (but not automatic) option for viewing PDF files

How can I set the default option for opening PDF files in Firefox? I'm not asking about setting the automatic handler. I don't want PDF files to open in anything automatically. I want to get the dialog box asking me "What should Firefox do with this file," but I want to set one of the options to be the one that's pre-selected so all I have to do is click OK. (I don't want to have to choose the preferred option each time by clicking its radio button and then OK.)

Recently, these dialogs always seem to have the "Open with Firefox" option pre-selected. Since I usually want to open PDFs with Adobe Acrobat, I have to click on that radio button and then click OK. I just want to click OK, except in the few instances when I want to save the file or use the internal viewer.

So how do I designate the default option?

A week ago installed fresh win 10, downloaded Firefox, logged in my firefox account. got my bookmarks, password and other good stuff synced in and at some point i recognized that my Youtube dosen't work right(issue exist only in Firefox, only on 1 PC)so here is a deal: I log in my google accout, open youtube page, it shows my subscriptions, recomended, playlist and other stuff except notifications, and if i like a video it dosen't add to "liked videos" playlist, in fact i can't manage any playlists at all and if i update a page it shows that i'm no longer loged in and i can't log out ither because page dosen't look like it should(simply not showing UI for account managment, only "dark theme","language" and other crap related to page) in Opera and even Edge everything works like intended. I used win. defender and other anti-virus soft to scan my PC - found nothing, there is no addons or anything like that, i completly removed evrything Mozila related and instaled it back - dosen't fix anything.

The troubleshooting information says that I upgraded from ver. 79 to 80 on the 25th. Today is the 27th and when I opened Firefox today it did some sort of updating and now all of my passwords are gone. I've tried finding a solution to this problem to no avail. There's no key3.db file, only key4.db. Anyone have any ideas? Could I restore my system to an older date and go back to ver. 79?

Hi. When (re)opening a number of bookmarks, e.g. from MySessions v2020.7.0 or OneTab v1.29, just recently, not before, it opens them in reverse order. Is there a way to adjust/fix/set that list top becomes left most and list bottom right most in the horizontal list of tabs? I am sure it is not those two extensions, since it worked before. Would be great if FF had a feature to reverse all tabs t1, t2, t3...t97, t98, t99 to reverse order t99, t98, t97...t3, t2, t1. How can this be done with existing FF, tools or extensions? Or is there a setting in about:config that would allow correct/reversed (re)opening order? Thank you!

attempting to login to Firefox sync I'm told the system has just locked my account - which is odd because I just logged in with the account to log this issue. Message is : "Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to xxxxxx@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account."

There is nothing wrong with my gmail account either - I checked gmail is not bouncing mail back sent to my address.
