favicons (icons) in tabs displayed for a light firefox theme. I have a firefox black theme right now. On a black background of the firefox theme, you can not see black icons. I tried to open the same tabs in chrome with a dark theme, there is a white icon, as it should be for the same site that I opened in firefox (there was a black icon in firefox). How can I fix it?

Have set duckduckgo as default search engine but search just returns duckduckgo main page, not keyword search results when keywords are typed in search bar and hit search. If I revert to bing it shows results as usual. Change back to duckduck and it reverts to just showing duckduck main page again. Any suggestions

Some optimized mp4 do not play at all in any of my FF. From what I can see, this video is 10 fps and description says "Optimized using ezgif.com". Small and short videos. Lenghts seems to be correctly indicated by FF player frame.

All other MP4 play perfectly in any of my FFs. When I download such mp4 to my computer, VLC will play it normally. Any FF at this same computer will not! I repeat: all other videos play perfectly normal, including any MP4 I tried! Anything else on this same site plays normally. I am on Win 7.

I remove all security features I can, still, this single sort of videos are not playing and this is true for any such videos on this site. I tried 4 different versions of FF (v29, 60.9.0esr, v65 IceDragon, v71). They inherit configuration from the existing ones, so they are not clean installs. The same problem I have in several Win7 computers (two Virtual Machines and a real computer, not Win 7 N). FF safe mode does not help also.

Example page containing such mp4 with a cat: https://www.index.hr/lajk/poster/227148/vlasnici-su-snimili-svoju-smijesnu-macku-koja-se-moze-provuci-i-kroz-najmanji-prostor

and when I isolate just the video:

https://storage-lajkhr.index.hr/kiki/a727a5a6-734f-44d6-9ee8-42b857f22193.mp4

in FF I get only an empty black page and frame with player and no video at all.

What is wrong here?

I just downloaded and installed Firefox 72.0.2 for my Mac. I had been using 67, which had become problematic with screen freezes requiring Force Quit. The 72.0.2 appeared to install, showing the new icon in the Dock. I opened it and updated Shockwave Flash to the latest, which asked for a restart of the browser. Once restarted, I tried to open Firefox a pop-up claimed the profile was missing or inaccessible, but I could find it easily in its normal place.

After updating to Firefox 73 (running on Windows 7), no pages will load. Saved tabs have a blank URL bar, opening a new tab and putting in a URL does nothing, no built-in pages (such as the various about: pages, options page, etc.) work, nothing. All basic troubleshooting (including refreshing, reinstallation, and so on) completed with no change.

How can the 5 minute timeout on sync verification code be increased to 10 minutes in view of delay receiving code by email?

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?

The latest update of Firefox, Ver. 71.0 is PITIFUL AND A POS! Firefox forced an update even though I have had it set to allow ME to decide when to update for years. Then when it updated it became V E R Y S L O W! And my PureVPN extension no longer works, even when I had to log in again manually. Firefox will no longer be my default browser until you fix ALL these problems: 1. Forced updates 2. Slowness 3. PureVPN MUST work!

Ever since my first ever use of FireFox the setting to "update" has been set to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

Yesterday I clicked to accept the latest update (to 71.0 I think) at which point the programme simply crashed without warning.

I went through various processes to try and resurrect FF, but without success --- FireFox would not run.

I eventually resorted to installing Version 65.0 but, despite the update settings being set as above, Version 71 kept installing and making FF a "non-starter" again.

I made an alteration to the "about:config" which seems to have stopped the automatic updating, albeit the "FF Icon" still wants to function as "Updater" and I get a message (when started) saying FF is unable to update to the latest version - "click here to download etc.," which of course I don't do and FF continues to perform as expected - albeit 65 and not 71.

Is there a problem with Version 71 and (possible) Win 7 64 bit ?

How can I reconfigure the "FF Icon" to simply start the programme (version 65) in the normal way and not get involved with it wanting to update all the time?

Another peculiarity that has arisen is that, when I try to change the Default language from American English to British English I receive a message saying FF cannot change as it is not online. (Version 65 and it is definitely online)

I have carried out system scans for Viruses etc., perform really in-depth un-installations of FF, and no new applications have recently been installed.

I've been using the FF 65 because FF didn't allowed the Simple Tab Groups add on for a while. Once FF allowed this add on again, I updated from 65 to 70. I completed the update and everything seems to work normal, but, when I restart the app: There is no master password, and all the saved logins are also gone. I know that FF has problems with the updates, so I copied my 65 version of FF an d also a copy of the profile. So I deleted the 70 and tried to update again, and the result is the same. It update's perfectly, but when I quit the app and open it again, master pass and logins are gone.

Does anyone knows what to do? Should I have to delete some file from the Profile?

Thanks in advance
