I went to some website that asked me to run Adobe Flash Player and now ever since I did the videos on youtube wont start playing until I click on them to. I want to set them so they start playing on their own again.

I tried turning on autoplay on youtube, but that didn't help. I tried going to the add-ons and changing to Always Activate, but that didn't work. I even tried Never Activate. I then looked at the Adobe Flash Player settings within the Control Panel, but nothing there helped.

I'm now considering uninstalling the program, but I'm confused, is it Adobe Flash Player that I need to uninstall or Adobe Shockwave Player? And, will this make it so videos don't play at all?

Dear Mozilla I have encountered the "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" error when trying to access google.com Unfortunately, Mozilla Support sites only explain the origin of the problem. No solution to solving the issue is given. I can't even proceed to the website accepting the risk. I have found other pages with suggested solutions but none worked. I tried deleting the Cert9.db file which didn't work. Other solution are for antivirus on windows which doesn't help since I run Ubuntu with no antivirus. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thx in advance

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian

I have post this questions a week ago but there is no response of my questions. I re-post it and hope someone could help to resolve the problem. The firefox v.65 crash , usually after 3o mins, when I have the new brought photoshop elements 2019 program running in the background. After crashed I try to restore the tab. However, firefox crash again right after restart and restore the tab. If I keep trying to restore the tab. The firefox has no response and freeze. A error message come out " video driver failed to restart ....... Sometime the computer get into blue screen and die. i find that the problem also happen with Microsoft Edge browser too. I google the possible issue of the crash and get some information regarding the crash. It may be cause by the photoshop element face detection feature use too much memory to run the program or the program has memory leak problem that cause firefox crash.

I did check my computer RAM memory and PC window system files. they did not show any error. I refresh firefox and reinstall my video driver. However, it make no change of the crash situation. The firefox crash and Blue screen die issues only happen if I run my photoshop element and premier 2019 program at the same time. Adobe support said that it was not photoshop element program problem for the firefox crash.

I want to find out what is the root problem of the crash and how to fix it. I also want to know any known issue firefox crash assoicated with photoshop elements program.

I have the about:config autoplay set to "1" as you are supposed to, but when Firefox updated the other day autoplay has been enabled again. I have downloaded an add-on to try and block them, but I want to know why we can't block them ourselves, or why setting the about:config autoplay to "1" no longer works.

As per the title, I can no longer access Amazon.com after the latest FIrefoc update. As soon as my update completed, I tired to access Amazon.com but to no avail. I get the following error:

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.amazon.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.amazon.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

I can access other sites, including Amazon.ca and other shopping sites. How do I resolve this problem?

Extremely slow tab switching since a few weeks

Hello,

officials confiscated my fast PC leaving me with a old system with following specs:

Intel Core i3-3220 (2 cores with 3,3 Ghz), Windows 10 latest version x64, 4 GB RAM, relativ new Samsung SSD, NVIDIA GT 1030 with drivers not updated in a while.

I have bad memory but I think I have this PC about 4 months and this Firefox problem since 2 months, could be totally different because I have really bad memory.

I thought it might be a extension or a setting so I started with a new profile, unfortunatelly it didn't help.

I think tab switching very often is over 3 seconds, doesn't matter much if there 5 or 15 tabs open, I use Firefox since 2002, recommended it to many people and never had such a big problem like this before.
