I have been running Mozilla that comes default with Ubuntu 18.04 for the last one and a half months but not been able to play most videos and gifs. Youtube runs properly but Amazon Prime does not. I tried restarting in the safe mode and still couldn't get it to work. I only added an ad-blocker add on and disabling this did not help too.

I browse reddit and one thing I noticed is that gfycat gifs play fine but rest of them just don't play. They just show a picture of the first frame, no error messages as such.

Can't find the option to disable auto updates in version 65. One of the reasons I haven't updated to the latest version. If it can't be disabled, I'll be done using your browser. I stopped using Microsoft Windows precisely because of that behavior. There is nothing more annoying than using your browser and it says, "I can't do anything without a restart." and being presented with a restart button except that when you click the restart button, the browser closes. It never restarts.

I want control over my own computer. I want control over whether this updates or not. I've been doing this longer than you and I'm an IT professional. This can be done a whole lot better.

I'm keeping all of my other machines at 64 pending an answer to this question. Very disappointed that I may have to find a different alternative browser not based on google code.

Last night I did the new firefox update and every since then I have been getting the following error on multiple sites. Including Tumblr, Google, yahoo mail, and many others.

"Network Protocol Error

Firefox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.

   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I have tried searching out the answer on here and most said to just clear out the cache which is what I did and I am still receiving the error at random times on different sites. I can refresh and the site will load but then if I got to another page of the same website or a different site the error will just appear again. Thanks in advance!

Firefox randomly and repeatedly calls out to addresses that have nothing to do with my browsing, and I'm trying to find out which I can block. I've identified a few that seem to be related to the *constant* checking for updates, but some I'm not sure about:

detectportal.firefox.com shavar.services.mozilla.com secure.fanboy.co.nz

BTW, why is it so difficult to disable automatic update checks? I found an article about JSON files, but shouldn't it just be a setting in preference? The constant update checks are interfering with my browsing, which should get priority, I think.

When I try to use the find bar, it shows up black and won't search for text. It doesn't even say "phrase not found." I tried searching for words I knew were in the webpage and that I could see and it still wouldn't work. The quick search bar does the same. I tried restarting with add-ons disabled and nothing happened. I'm kind of at a loss at what to do.

Here's an image of the find bar if that helps any.

I've searched all over the web - to no avail :( All I want to do is to save my browsing history EASILY. That used to be possible in Firefox very easily by using the export button or by using a tool like Norton's. Sadly no longer it seems... no more Norton or exporting is only possible for bookmarks :( :( I know where the data is - mostly in places.sqlite - and have used a SQL browser but I don't want to have to learn how to manage data bases, I just want a simple list of all the sites I've visited with date... Everyone is so concerned about deleting their browser history, but is really no one interested in keeping a record?? I've used Nirsoft's great History Viewer sadly only available for Windows - but I use my Mac far more than my PC and syncing doesn't always work in moving all my browser history from my Mac to my PC. If there really is nothing there, I'd appreciate very much help from someone with SQL experience - what do I have to do using a DB Browser for SQLite in order to generate the list I'd like. Thanks to everyone who can help in advance!

How can I make Firefox always ask to download mp4/m4v/mov/webm/etc video files?

Using Firefox 65, I'm trying to get back a basic functionality I've had for years (prior to Quantum). I have a link to an .m4v video file that I need to download (I don't ever want links directly to m4v, mp4, mov, etc playing in the browser, I need to download these files to my computer). Whenever I click the link, it automatically opens up a blank page and starts playing the video. Nothing I do will give me the 'Ask what to do' prompt. How can I fix this? Things I've tried: Changing the default action to 'Mpeg-4 movie' under Options/Applications to 'Always Ask'. Even if the link is an mp4, it still plays it in the browser. Manually added an entry for .m4v by editing handlers.json, and setting it to 'Always ask'. Still plays in the browser. Set both Mpeg-4 Movie and the manual m4v entry to 'Save File'. Still plays in the browser. Tried doing a 'Save As' while it was playing to just save my file, but Firefox then tries to save the file as 'FileName.m4v.mp4' instead of just 'FileName.m4v'. I'm not sure if it's actually re-wrapping the file into another container, or just arbitrarily adding an extra extension to the filename, but I need it to, by default, save as the file name that is used on the server... (If it's just renaming the file, I can live with this one bug if I can make the rest of the functionality work.)

Can anyone offer any tips on this? Can anyone explain an easier way to manually add an extension into the Application section?

Here's a test page: http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html Underneath the thumbnail image/embedded video there direct links to an mp4, ogg video and WebM video. The action I want, when I click on any one of those, is for Firefox to prompt me with a download location to save the file to (the usual 'Always Ask' dialog box). NOTHING should attempt to play in the web browser itself. I've been able to do this with every version of Firefox 'pre-Quantum', but I just can't make the latest version do it...

(Another work-around that may seem obvious is to right-click the file name and click 'Save Link As'. While this works on the sample page, it doesn't work on the pages I have to download these videos from... It's a scripted button that sends back the link to the file when clicked on.)

I'm not sure when this started but for some reason I can't play a YouTube video in one tab, then open a video in another tab without Firefox automatically pausing and stopping the video in the tab I switched from. It won't play both at once. I can press play on one then switch tabs and press play then the other stops. I used to be able to play multiple videos in multiple tabs automatically in FF like in any other browser. I can STILL do this in Chrome, Safari, Opera or Edge. If this is a new FF "feature" I want to disable it now.

So I noticed this recently (sometime after the latest update) where now if I try to save an image it'll either 1) not add the right extension (like .png or .jpg) or will try to save it as a html document. I'm not able to add the extension in the name itself as then my programs just complain about it being an incorrect image format, and it's not any of my add-ons as I did try in safe mode as well and another browser (the other browser worked fine).

I already found this thread recently (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1248840) where they were having the exact same issue. However, this didn't fix my problem because it either made some images suddenly disappear (no thumbnails at all) or continued to try and save the image as an invalid format. Any ideas how to fix this? Or just have to wait until update fixes it?

Recently updated Firefox to FX65 and as expected had the 'Tabs on top problem return.' Followed advice given earlier in <Tabs not on Bottom> forum post and found that there was no 'chrome' folder in my Profile folder so created one and then added the 'userChrome.css' corrected file to move my Tabs back to the bottom. However, on restarting Firefox this fix did not work on my laptop. N.B.: it worked fine for my desktop PC.

I've just found that if I do Ctrl + mouse wheel, the page now zooms! I've used Firefox for about 15 years and never had this happen before. The only thing that's different today is that I have just uninstalled Flash?

How do I disable this? I have always used Ctrl+mouse wheel to control the volume. For me, it is essential to be able to quickly adjust the volume with the mouse wheel, and very frustrating not being able to!

Hi,

I like having my local HTML file as a homepage which gives me links to my favourite sites. However, Firefox doesn't seem to support loading a local homepage in a new tab. I have attempted to resolve this by setting up a server and using the My Homepage addon which kind of workds, but it's extremely slow and cumbersome.

Would be very grateful if someone had a better idea.
