Can anyone tell me why the following html code doesn't work:

<audio autoplay>
  <source src="file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.
</audio>

I must say, it does work in Microsoft Edge, but in no other browser, including Firefox. And how could I make it work? I want the audio file to start playing when the page is opened, in the background, no controls, no loops...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

A firebox browser automatic update earlier today has resulted in various pages I visit subsequently crashing the browser.

It is particularly problematic because one page that now crashes is my Barclays Bank login page, which I normally check every few days.

I know that rollback of updates is not recommended, perhaps not even allowed, but surely if an update results in a page like Barclays crashing the browser then there must be a fix pending?

Please do not reply with "try another browser" or "try your phone" - I don't do banking on my phone, and find both Chrome and Edge packed with too much ad crap, making browsing painfuly slow.

I would prefer you to reply with "Here is how to fix it so you can continue to use Firefox..."

Kind regards,

R

Yes, I have set the options to open, see attached. If I go to a website and click on a PDF it will open in Adobe Reader. When I go to Outlook.live.com for my email and click on the PDF it opens them in a Firefox preview. When I print them from Firefox it takes an average of 5 minutes per page. If I download and open in Adobe it takes seconds to print the entire file.

All PC's mentioned below are on the same router and LAN, and all are using Firefox 86 x64 on Windows 10.

I have been a Firefox user for many, many years (I started using browsers in the 90's, 'nuff said). But having recently reinstalled a PC, I found myself unable to initiate sync on the new Firefox install there. I kept getting the error "NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource." in a red box when I entered my password. Perplexed, I tried creating a support ticket on another of my PC's (let's call it #2) - same error there when trying to sign in to Firefox support! I then tried to use that browser to access my account by going to Account Settings -> Manage Account. I was met with a circle animation - and a completely blank webpage.

This post is being created from my third PC, where, for some odd reason, the Manage Account function actually works, and where I was also able to sign into support. I made a change to my bookmarks on PC/Firefox #2, to see if sync was still working - and it did come through to PC #3. After that, I was finally able to start a sync on PC #1 (the newly installed one).

But I am still unable to do anything with my account on PC #2. Can't sign in to support, can't access Manage Account. And this cannot be purely about the profile or installation, as the issue was affecting PC #1 as well.

It seems like Mozilla's account management is really wobbly, and my prime suspect is the shift to "Firefox Accounts" on the support pages recently. But I'm open to being proved wrong.

Just hoping someone out there can tell me what this issue is, and how I fix it. The fact that I was unable to sign in to my Firefox Account from a completely new Firefox install makes me very uncomfortable. And my primary PC (#2) is still unable to manage that account, or sign in to the support pages.

Thanks in advance.

Some days ago I noticed a change in the outfit of the firefox basic website: It concerns the upper menue-line. There is still in the right upper corner the `x ´ , the sign for closing the page.( note the red flash in my picture!) But I am missing the `-´ and the square sign, with which I can hide and open a hidden page. So I don´t know, how to switch between several pages, i.e., I can´t make dissappear this page, in order to use the translation page.

I've been having the problem of websites loading slowly on Firefox for a few days now. Firefox itself loads quickly, but opening Youtube for example takes a very long time.

I have this problem since I have a new internet line, yet this is most likely not the problem, since on chrome this problem does not occur.

As a solution I have cleaned firefox and even clean reinstalled it. However, the problem still occurs. I suspect that this is a problem related to my profile. Even opening it without addons does nothing.

Any ideas?

I recently attempted to log in to a credit card processing site with the username and password stored in Firefox. Firefox auto-supplied just my username, and when I tabbed to the password field to enter that info, the username disappeared. If I tried to enter the password and return to the username field, the password disappeared. The site naturally read this as an incorrect login attempt. Tech support for the site suggested this was a browser issue and recommended I switch to another browser, and they advised clearing the cookies and cache before each time I log into their site. Sort of defeats one benefit of having a computer.

I'm using version 86.0 of Firefox released 2/23/21 -- my last successful use of the site was 2/15/21 so I'm wondering if anybody else has seen this happen in version 86.0?

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Since the latest Firefox Update (Version 86.0), the Standard "Arial" Font has been missing from Google Spreadsheets (and Docs) and has been replaced with the inferior "Sans Serif". IIRC, this has happened once in the past (after a Firefox update), but was corrected after a few days. Is there any way to add Arial again or does one simply have to hope this issue will somehow be fixed in a future update?

I should add that this only does occur when using Firefox + Windows, any other combination (like with Chrome on Windows or Firefox on Mac) does still display the original font.
