Allow or block media autoplay in Firefox is affecting one of my add-ons

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay#firefox:win10:fx73 Does this include add-ons?

I have the "Anesidora" add-on to play music, but it stops after each song and I have to keep pressing play. I have the Autoplay settings in Firefox is set to "Block Audio and Video", but it never affected the Anesidora add-on before. Is there a way to create an exemption for add-ons? I don't want videos to automatically play on websites, but I want the Anesidora add-on to continuously play music (like it was working before), so I am guessing Firefox recently changed that? Is there a way to fix this?

I will like to know why there are so many downloads on a single day. Is this some kind of DDOS attack?

I installed the umatrix add-on, but it doesn't show in the top right with the rest of them. It is clearly installed, and it also shows in the sidebar, but I can not use it properly from there. I would like to know how i put the icon back to the top right corner, so I can access it from there. It has been there before, but it suddenly disappeared. I can't remember doing anything thats related with add-ons around the time it disappeared. so I have no clue what caused this.

Kind regards

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

I have been an avid user of firefox since it's inception, I enjoy it's accessability, user friendsliness and have never had a use for customer support (until now). All of my downloaded firefox themes work, switching between them is no problem. I can add and remove add-ons with no problems aswell, but the moment I close firefox and start a new session (sorry, let me back track a tad, I customize my toolbar on a regular bases, I like the functionality and it makes it more personal). Ever since the mid February update every time I close firefox and reopen it my my add-ons in the toolbar are invisible and unusable. There isn't even an information pop-up when hovering over where they should be (technically they are still there). I'm running Windows 10 (fully updated just like all my programs). I took a snap shot of this message to illistrate my point, both my Ad-Blocker and Flash Downloader add-ons appear ro be missing and yet I know they are next to the library button.

I am creating a dual boot PC with Win XP and Win 7. I have Firefox on my XP side with lots of plugins. Is there a way to load all those plugins from my XP to my 7 without having to reload all of them? Are they all stored in a folder somewhere that I can just copy over?

Help shows up-to-date with v62 but some sites won't work and I have to use Opera.

I tried to follow the update's instructions for Pocket (that I used to use) but somewhere there must be data saying I'm still using FireFox version 18.

Is there anyway to update the "18" to "62", please.

Why does rebooting between Windows and Linux disable all of my extensions? (ESR 38.x.x worked, ESR 45.2.0 doesn't)

Ever since installing Firefox 45.2.0ESR, rebooting between Windows and Linux and running Firefox with the same profile between them disables all of my extensions (in add-ons). In this previous ESR, this did not happen. How can I prevent this behavior? Specifically, I have a profile which I share between my partitions. It is hosted on the Windows partition. A symbolic link is created to it from my Linux /home partition. This setup worked perfectly with all previous ESR's. But now when I reboot between Firefox installs of the same ESR version, all of my extensions are disabled, and I must manually step through re-enabling each one of them.

(And no, I don't want to use any online synchronization services to work around this issue.)

I'm a Firefox Developer Edition user. After upgrading my Firefox to 69.0b1, I see a problem about network and extension:

In the same network, the case when the browser stuck at loading the page content has been more frequent (especially on script-rich sites like Twitter). At that case, the extension menu is irresponsive (which means that when I click on it, it only shows a pop-up with nothing in it). Closing all loading tabs doesn't solve this. After a long time after the loading starts, the tabs suddenly continue to load and the extension pages come back responsive.

I have Windows 10 at current maintenance and Firefox 75 -at current maintenance. I have no problem with any other website, and the Discover website was fine until Mon Apr. 13. Now it says my accounts cannot be accessed.

Discover support says it is a problem with Firefox Java settings, but I cannot find anything about Java in the options. They had me restart the PC and clear cache and cookies in Firefox, but neither solved the problem.

I can access these accounts successfully with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, so it looks like something in Firefox IS the problem. From previous support entries it looks like you have had similar issues in the past, so looks like that problem is back.

How soon can I expect this to be fixed? Firefox is my default browser, and I hate to have to use a different browser for just one website.
