Hello, I have problem with YouTube. When I am clicking "Share" button I got screen with infinite loading. The same issue happens when I want to open menu by clicking on my avatar. On dev console I am getting a POST error: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/401

I tried to: - clean Google/youtube cookies and stored cache; - clean then all cookies; - relaunch Firefox with all addons disabled; - enter via private mode with/without addons; - flush dns on dev console; - disable completely antivirus; - change DNS.

What is interesting, that problem happens only when I am logged in to my Google (YouTube) account and only on Firefox. Even on private mode it works until I do not log in to my account.

I would be very grateful for help.

FireFox broke my youtube (utube) account when you updated the picture in picture (p.i.p.) from the BLUE p.i.p. button that came out from the right side of the utube vids.

  • NOW with the new upgraded "white" p.i.p. button, I login to utube and the loaded utube page don't log me into my account, I have to keep reloading the page 10 times or more just to get my subscription list to load on the left side, but my notification bell in the top right hand corner won't load the new videos and it reads "SIGN IN" even though I'm signed in, and the channels I subscribe to NOW HAS a subscribe button even though I'm subscribed already!!! CRAZY!!!
  • Why does it not log me into all the features on the page?

And why won't it detect I'm ALREADY logged in and load all my normal features?

      • IS FIREFOX AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM AND GOING TO FIX IT or do I need to use another browser forever to view utube?

Any Ideas??? Thanks my friends!!! Much Love!

I've been having this problem recently (firefox build 82.0.3 and a few older versions) where characters randomly disappear from the text being displayed. In addition to webpage body text, the address bar and tab titles also disappear sometimes.

As I'm typing this text characters are randomly being replaced with blank spaces. Firefox is the only application on my computer that seems to have this problem. I have restarted it, reset the user profile, and disable all extensions/add-ons in an attempt to debug but it hasn't seemed to help.

Attached are two screen captures, one where the text has disappeared on me and one after I highlighted the text to bring it back. Note: the address bar and tab titles are blank in both since I didn't highlight/click on them.

Whenever I open Firefox it opens a new tab for a brief moment then closes it and opens my previous tabs from my last session. I have this setting unchecked in the settings.

Friends, I use FF extensively and prefer not to change but it's been very annoying as of late.

Running v83. Even downgraded to v82 and it worked for some minutes but now it's back to same behavior. [struggle to download to 82 is here: https://rezamusic.yolasite.com/technical-tips.php]

If you google "squeeze lemon" for example -- on my Chrome it shows images and a list of drop down subjects "people also ask".

On Firefox, the pictures don't show -- and drop downs are frozen (don't work). Also on other sites that have a Captcha, Firefox just doesn't work. Seems same problem with 82. Help!

Images are from Chrome -- and last one from Firefox

I started having problems with YouTube recently and I think it is a Firefox issue.

I am running version 82.0.3 (64-bit) and when I log into YouTube, the Home page is not displaying all the content.

I have attached severl screenshots and you can see the problem as follows:

Image Sign In 1 shows the YouTube home page before signing in. Image Sign In 2 shows the YouTube home page after I have signed in using my Google account and you can see at the top right of the screen that my Google Account avatar (Darth) is showing. However, a lot of the content, e.g. Watch Later, Classics and My Subscriptions which are user related are all missing and if you compare this image to Image Sign In Chrome you can see that Chrome is showing everything and works correctly.

I tried this on Edge as well and it works all okay, the same as Chrome, so that is why I think there is an issue with Firefox.

Also, on the left side in the middle in Image Sign In 1 and Image Sign In 2 you can see a blue Sign In box with the words "Sign in to like videos, comment and subscribe." If you select this option you get an error which is in Image YouTube Sign In Error so I don't know if this is related to my problem but I thought it may help highlight what the problem is.

Any confirmation that it's a Firefox issue or any solutions to what is causing it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi, I have used Firefox on my desktop pc using Windows o/s many years with minimal problem. Last few weeks Firefox operating strangely. Starts off fine then after opening a few tabs will not open others. Seems to be searching for new url but no show. When I close it down to re-open fresh a pop-up box appears with option 'close firefox'. Only when selected will firefox re-open. That then works fine for a few tabs then will not open after that. I have tried Refresh, Restart without add-ins, Safe mode. None have removed the problem. I have thought about Uninstall then reinstall a 'clean' firefox, but worried about losing all my data. The problem seems to have started a few weeks back after a Windows 10 update but I am not sure about that. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

This seems to be a newish issue - as in, I think it has not been happening until at least a few weeks ago. The computer (linux) is always on, and firefox is also always running (except when I update to a new version). But I was not using the computer for a while. Today I sat at the computer expecting to see all my tabs that I sent to it via "send tab to device", but as soon as firefox started syncing, everything slowed down to a crawl (to the point where even typing to a terminal would have upwards to several seconds of lag). Weirdly, it doesn't seem as if there's a lot of CPU or IO being used, according to top and iotop - but I was seeing multiple "migration" processes (that went away after quitting firefox), suggesting that there are many threads doing very little work in aggregate. After googling a bit I tried setting sync.log.appender.console to Debug and looking at debug console, which didn't tell me anything interesting - it actually looks as if the sync itself completes fast. And, in fact, my bookmarks seem to have synced to today's state correctly. (restarting after updating to current version does not seem to help; running in safe mode also doesn't seem to help)

1) What's up? How do I stop this from happening?

2) How do I get my "sent" tabs? Even a list for the past 2 weeks would be fine. Working it out from browsing history would be ... a lot of needles in even more piles of hay.

I'm stumped. Using this URL https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data#w_moving-a-profile I've backed up files to an external drive. Then followed the instructions "Restoring to a different location" which in my case is another partition on the same hard drive. It just does not work.

I create a new folder, Thunderbird, and a new profile in it on Y using the link in the instructions @ 2. Use the Thunderbird Profile Manager to create a new profile in your desired location by ... Press Windows Key +R on the keyboard to open the Run dialog. Then enter "thunderbird.exe -p" and click OK. exit the Profile Manager ...

Profile created and I see the file in Thunderbird folder on Y drive, path Y\Jim\Thunderbird\t55nr5v1.jim-combined. Profile manager sees default profile name on c partition and new profile on y partition. Try to launch Thunderbird with jim-combined profile. I deselect use selected profile at startup and start.

First time no start up-no error messages. Second dbl click it starts to default on c partition. A t55nr5v1.jim-combined folder has been created in the Y partition but at the root folder, Jim, and not in the Thunderbird folder that was selected when creating the new profile-this folder is MT.

I re-open the profile manager as above, thunderbird.exe -p, and the new profile created is no where to be found. I start the program from here and default on C opens.

Close program, move t55nr5v1.jim-combined, which has a file times.json in, in to the Thunderbird folder as originally set up and open profile mgr. Nothing.

I do not think Thunderbird can work on a drive that is partitioned? If it can can someone tell me how. I've lost hours and my C partition is out of space and the 2+ GB of files needs to move.

I tried another section that was on this page a few days ago but is now gone that talked about editing the the profile.int. Tried all the iterations of // or \\ absolute to relative paths, changing to 1 to 0 all w/o any luck.

This page, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer, was much more helpful at showing what going up 3 levels means. The way the help page I'm using is written it very unclear to me.

Any help would be appreciated -- jim

Hi, every time I'm on Youtube, Firefox loads the page 2 times and when I try to go back o the previous page it reloads the current: For example I play video #1, then I click in another video it opens the video #2 page, if I click the back page button even without playing video #2 it reloads video #2 page.

The second problem with Youtube is the audio: sometimes when playing a video suddenly on background it restart the audio of the video and it plays together, and if I pause the video the "first audio" stop but the second keeps going.

Already tried the fix audio solution but nothing changed, also cleared cache etc....

I have TB 78.4.3 (32-bit) installed and update whenever TB suggests. (I'm using Firefox 80.2.03 (64-bit) running on Win 10) For the first time ever, to my knowledge, in the past day or so good email--important email--is being routed to the junk mail folder. I have tried dragging it back to the inbox and BAM, it gets moved back to junk. I have tried marking it "not junk." Doesn't matter. I have a number of message filters set up to cope with the massive volume of junk that comes in, but none of them should have caused this effect.

This is going to make me crazy.

In the plugin "facebook Container" I have made a new "tab category" called "social media" with a blue sign. The problem is that firefox continues to open FB in the old category even if I delete it, which is also very hard to do as I have to close all my FB-tabs to be able to delete it in the options tab. Next time I use firefox or a few days later firefox has again undeleted the old FB category and again opens my FB tabs in black tabs instead of my new blue tabs. I can´t use my own new tab category as long as the old one is there and it keeps comming back after I delete it. Very annoying to say the least! Please fix this error as soon as posible, thank you.
