My location is Rockford, Ill. Until a few days ago, I had no problem with websites accessing my correct location. Now, I have some sites that show my location as Sacramento, Ca. !!! I'm planning some travel this summer(hopefully), so this can be a problem. I have tried clearing the cache and a few other suggestions, to no avail. Anyone have an idea what to do about this? Thanks, Mike P.

I have a website I built with ruby on rails with a bunch of posts where people can post images and videos. The videos are coded with :controls => true, :loop => true, :autoplay => true, muted: true, so they are playing as soon as the website is loaded on mute. The problem I have now is that when using firefox, ALL of the videos get played WITHOUT MUTE TOGETHER when the user goes to any other page. So whenever the user for example goes to the "about" page, the videos of the homepage are still playing on a loop with 100% volume and there is no way to stop it except for closing the website. This isnt really supporting for my user experience if you know what I mean.

What may also be worth mentioning is that I have a script which makes videos only play when on the user actually scrolled to their position.^

If you are interested in tinitus, you can try it out and listen to a concert of earrape videos (im not responsible for any braindamage). https://www.darkerr.co/posts This issue is not happening for Chrome, Safari or Edge. It must be something exclusively for firefox. Does anybody know how to fox this problem? Thank you so much!

Norton Safe is not an option in the drop down list of possible search engines. When my husband installed Firefox, Norton asked whether to make it the default search engine, and he did. I was not given that option, and I find no way to add Norton as an option.

Hi, The vams.cdc.gov portal is just showing a blank page, the cdc site says that firefox is a browser to use and also says chrome,safari etc. I need to get on the site because I have to register my mother for over 75 to get the vaccine. I have a phone modem and windows 7. Trying to download either of the other browsers is a long long long download. Anybody know the fix to getting this portal working. I noticed that it uses the Aura framework ie window.Aura By the way the page source is there, and the title bar does show VAMS Portal, just the blank page though. Thanks for helping if you can.

toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart is on "true"

It was working well before I had an update on Windows that crushed my connection to my printer. So I reinstalled W10. I now have version 10.0.19042, n°19042 (according to system information) and I have the last version according to windows update.

Thanks for helping me restoring firefoxe automatical update!

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

By using refresh Firefox to "fix" problems with slowness, I have lost all of my bookmarks and God knows what else. And I can't access the files that were created, all I get is gibberish. Why didn't Firefox inform me that using refresh would fubar ("fouled" up beyond all recognition) my computer? I desperately need to undo the damage caused by using this (dis)service. And how do I contact Firefox to tell them how badly they have screwed me over?

In Firefox for Mac, when in fullscreen mode, moving the mouse curser to the top of the screen to show the menu bar covers the open tabs, address bar etc. I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug - in other browsers the tabs move down so that you can still click on them, which I much prefer.

Is there a way to have Firefox move the address bar etc out of the way when showing the menu bar in full screen?

I've attached a couple of screenshots to show the behaviour in Firefox compared to Brave browser (and I guess Chrome).

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, I saw a few similar posts but nothing with this exact issue.

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm having an issue where I can't see all of my bookmarks or folders after syncing. I am missing a folder that held a lot of bookmarks. When I go to search for specific bookmarks I can find them but I can't see the folder that contains them. It appears as if the folder or folders themselves have been hidden somehow. I only noticied this after signing in to my mozilla account and syncing my bookmarks. It seems there are issues syncing desktop to mobile and mobile back to desktop.

Please help me find my missing bookmarks. Thank you :)

After installing the DRM content through the browser I still cannot play any videos on Netflix or Udemy.

I have run this website (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/sumo/html5-video.html) from previous answers to check and the results are attached to the question.

I have also checked media.eme.enabled and it is set to true.

I am very much puzzled by this.

About this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-administrator-launcher-process-error-fix#w_how-to-verify-the-problem

In order to solve the drag and drop issue under win7, article above suggests "Start Firefox Using the -no-deelevate command" but doesn't clarify what would be the risks on doing it.

I mean, the security risk is only mentioned in the next suggestion "partial workaround", saying it would be rather than lower security by using -no-deelevate instead, but also gives no information about what risks would be.

So I would like to know:

1) If I decide to use -no-deelevate option, what sort of risks I'm taking?

2) To a no fool internet user, is it worthy to take?

This is relevant for me cuz re-enable UAC makes user have to confirm dialog box to everything at all in Windows despite logged as full right administrator.

Nor less annoying are the other option "copy and paste" "save as", putting me under ridiculous situation of needy to use Opera browser only to be able of drag IMDB links and images into a folder, then backing to Firefox for everything else.

You can drag an image even to a folder in an USB external drive (OMG-WTF)

Thanks you all.
