A few weeks back, videos on some sites stopped working. Facebook and Netflix are notable examples, though YouTube doesn't seem to be affected. I've tried netflix in private mode (ie with extensions disabled) and have the same problem.

I'm running:

  • Firefox 79.0
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • OpenH264 Video Codec add-on version 1.8.1.1
  • Widevine CDM add-on version 4.10.1582.2
  • libavcodec-extra and libavcodec-extra58 Ubuntu packages version 7:4.2.4-1ubuntu0.1

All the plugins have automatic updates enabled and I've checked that the "Play DRM-controlled content" option in firefox preferences is enabled.

Have I missed something I should check? Are others having this problem?

I just can't seem to get the gnome extension to work. When I use GE in Chrome, it works perfect. The feature I can't seem to get working is when you select an extension it won't give you the option to turn it on. I've tried everything that was suggested but it still doesn't work. Any ideas/suggestions ?

Thanks, Bruce

I recently installed Firefox as my default browser on my laptop with windows 10. When I try to download an svg file to my computer, it comes in as a Microsoft Edge HTML Document that isn't compatible to my Silhouette Crafting Program. It doesn't give me an option to download from Firefox. I changed to Firefox to get away from Microsoft Edge. I don't know where to find any settings to correct this? What do I need to do? TIA

With reference to this article: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Trusted_Recursive_Resolver

For network.trr.mode 3:

Note the use of "native resolver," a common term for the OS settings as in, for example, in Windows, Internet Protocol Properties under Ethernet Properties, the General tab.

Given that, what exactly is meant by "regular DNS"?

Thank you.

FF 78.0.1 -- Every new release brings a new subset of problems. New releases are not well thought out...or tested. Features added that the FF developers think will 'help' are often scourges and plagues ! Am sick of new problems with every release. And the continuous Nags to download the latest release ! I ticked on a piece of paper today all the upgrade Nags. I can't deal with 43 nags again !

On YouTube I used to be able to let videos play, one of the other, all night long. And I could lay down and relax and listen to history, which I love. Undisturbed, videos would play for days. Now I am freaking fighting frequent interruptions and I have to get out of bed and re-select "Allow Audio and Video". My blown-out knee will utterly not tolerate all those ups and downs from the bed. Get that part ? FF randomly shuts down my playlists and queued videos. Can I revert to an earlier release that used to work with no hassles ?

I have looked into this at great length and looked at loads of forum 'answers'. None work.

Respond and tell me to do About:Config for the 112th time and I will throw something at you ! NONE OF THOSE SETTINGS WORK !!! I want the icon and everything associated with it gone ! Deleted. Trashed. Dead. Nuked. Obliterated.

I have had more than enough of this...

I'm on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. Just upgraded to Firefox 79.0

Firefox opens no problem. I start to type in a url and it shows autocompletions like normal, but when I press enter, nothing happens. No processing indicator, just white screen. The same happens for `about` pages like about:config.

If I open a new tab or (private) window, I get the "Firefox has been updated in the background" message with the button to restart. Click it and it restarts in the same state.

I've double checked that when it closes, there are no firefox processes running.

Everything behaves the same if I start it from the command line with "firefox --safe-mode".

When started from the command line there is a slew of this error:

      1. !!! [Parent][MessageChannel] Error: (msgtype=0x390132,name=PContent::Msg_AsyncMessage) Channel error: cannot send/recv

It sounds like peak laziness, but I'm not a fan of opening a menu every time I want to change search engine nor do I want to use a prefix (though I suppose I wouldn't mind 'g' instead of '@google', 'ddg' instead of '@duckduckgo').

I'd like to have more than one search bar akin to the one you can choose adjacent to the address bar--each with its own search engine. If such a tweak doesn't exist browser-side or even addons-side, I suppose I wouldn't mind dabbling with the code if someone can tell me what file I'd have to go to in order to do this.

I regularly bounce between Google, Bing, and Duckduckgo as the search results vary with each (and, imo, Google has been less reliable as time goes by). Such a tweak would make browsing a lot more convenient for me.
