Since yesterday, Firefox will not play sound on youtube videos and some other embedded videos (eg Newsflare). IE and Chrome will play the sound. Have checked the sound system and everything seems OK as music still plays and websites with sound still work. Someone suggested it could be a flash player problem, but have checked Adobe flash and it is the latest version. I really don't know what the problem is. As an aside, my Train Simulator (which is run through Steam) also has no sound and it did 2 days ago!, but my Flight Simulator (also on Steam) has sound! Just can't get my head round it!! Help!!

Hey everybody. A few weeks ago, my audio stopped working on Google Meet out of the blue. I can still hear everyone, but they can't hear me. Meet works fine in a different browser so it's not my computer/mic. I've cleared my cookies/cache and disabled adblock, which is about where my know how ends. Any help would be much appreciated; I use Meet a lot for a side job and I haven't been able to search my way into a solution. I'm on Mac Catalina with FF 71.

Ja, Firefox Updates ärgern mich. Ich benutze seit vielen Jahren Firefox. Angefangen habe ich mit Version 4 oder 5, damals wurde noch mit Anpassbarkeit geworben. Anfangs war es noch möglich, durch einen Mausklick zu bestimmen, ob die Tabs oben oder unten sind, dann kam eine neue Firefox Version. Ich habe mir eine UserChrome.css gemacht, die gut funktioniert hat, dann kam Firefox 57? und die Anpassbarkeit war Geschichte. Wer mit mehreren Tabs arbeitet und dafür sind die Tabs doch da, muss die Maus mehr bewegen und es ist unübersichtlich. Wäre es nicht sinnvoll, dass was ich am häufigsten benutze, in der Nähe der Arbeitsfläche zu haben? Wäre es nicht besser die Tab Leiste standardmäßig nach unten zu legen und wer es anders möchte, der kann sich alle 10 oder 15 Versionen, eine UserChrome.css basteln.

So i have gone to Tools -> options - > applications and changed the application in the drop down to both ask every time and my desired applications, and it always says this address could not be understood. I have also gone to about:config and enable the handler.expose to true. And no magnet links work i have to go to chrome for it to work. I have tried with torrents and other magnet links and none of them work

I've been using Firefox since Netscape ended and i always enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Firefox 72 is utterly hideous. It is the worst and most unstable browser i ever tested -- it's extremely slow, it doesn't even work with hardware acceleration, it's not compatible with most sites i access and it crashes a lot. Anyway I already reinstalled the version 71, which continues to work flawless and I don't plan to ever use auto updates again. The problem is that every single day Firefox tries to update to the horrible 72 version, and every day I have reject it manually.

I'm looking for a way to permanently block future Firefox updates, without asking me for it again. Any ideas?

Ever since the most recent Windows build I've been unable to remove links from the pulldown url window. In the past I could just right click on a link and there would be a menu of options, once of which was to remove the URL. On reopening the pulldown menu, a new link would take its place. Now, nothing. No option to delete links. How do I do this? I have searched and searched to no avail.

Is there a way to ignore Cross-Origin Request Blocked?

Hi, I am learning web development. I am into AJAX now. When I try to use `load('ajax/somedata.txt')` in a local HTML file, I get the error:

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at file:///home/sourav/The%20Complete%20Web%20Development%20Course/JQuery/ajax/somedata.txt. (Reason: CORS request not http).

Same happens with other browsers. But Falkon browser is an exception. The other way to fix this is running an http server (like WEBrick).

Just because Firefox is my favourite browser, I want to load up the file correctly in Firefox. Is there a way to do that without running a local HTTP server?

too little space for URL / addressbar - need vertical left/right add-on bar to place extension icons

While browsing, the URL is essential. I often need to drag / copy this URL to another application. Most of the time there simply is NO room at all to even grab the URL. So we need to enlarge the browser window in order to enlarge the toolbar.

Does any add on or extension exist that adds an additional left, right or bottom 'bar' where we can place extension icons / controls? So as to maximize room for the addressbar? With bigger and bigger monitors available it is just plain ridiculous to not be able to use this space.

Hello everyone!

I'm having a pretty weird problem here. Whenever I add a new site, it will show that grey globe instead of it's favicon on the bookmarks. If I go to my bookmarks and click on the recently added site, it will then load the favicon normaly, but that's the only way of "forcing" it to load.

Any idea of why this may be happening?

I recently just learned about Firefox Picture-In-Picture just a few days ago after trying several add-ons that only opened video in a New Window. Which does no go because if you are working on a page or reading News on window the Newly openly Video Window would go to the background. So I ignorantly clicked Firefox Feed Back and sent them a message about not having a Video Overlay Option.

But now, I am wonder if there is option to select or in (about:config) to change location position the PIP opens and if there is size controls that one can select size of the PIP screen to open to regularly?
