Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.

I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012 Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina) Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.

Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?

There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.

I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.

I can't find a way to enable natural scroll with the touchpad - down movement on the touchpad means the screen moves down - in Firefox. I've gone into about:config and set mousewheel.default.delta_multiplier_y to -100, but that only affects the mouse, not the trackpad.

I changed my Windows 10 default font to something other than Segoe UI because I very much dislike Segoe UI. My doing so also changed the default font in Firefox 88, which is what I wanted. When I updated to Firefox 89, the browser no longer used my Windows 10 default font. That disappointed me a great deal because I did not like the font that Firefox 89 used. When Firefox 89.01 was released, that fixed the problem, and the browser used my Windows 10 default font, which again, is what I wanted.

I have now updated to Firefox 90, and it is not using my Windows 10 default font. Instead, it is using the ugly font that Firefox 89 used. In the Firefox 89.01 Release Notes, it says one of the issues that got fixed was "Fix various font related regressions (bug 1694174)" I am not sure if that is the "fix" that allowed Firefox 89.01 to use my Windows 10 default font, but I do know that after that fix, Firefox used my preferred font.

At bottom, Firefox 90 is not using my preferred font, which is the same problem Firefox 89 had and that Firefox 89.01 corrected. Please fix Firefox 90 so I am not stuck with the ugly font that it uses.

Printing at Reduced Scale Cuts Off Page

I have an issue where Firefox is cutting off the lower half of each page (blank) when I print with reduced scale. It is an issue that only occurs in Firefox—I have tried another browser. I have tried three printers and it causes the issue on all of them. The issue occurs on all web pages I have tried. I have reset the print settings in Firefox, run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, and refreshed Firefox.

Print preview will show the pages correctly with reduced size, but when printed, the bottom half of each page is blank. However, in print preview, if I change the settings to only print the first page, the preview will then show the first page with the bottom half missing.

I am wondering if this problem is caused by the latest Windows update. That is the last change to the computer I am aware of before this printing problem occurred.

Anything else I can try to resolve this issue?

Hi,

I had been using this addon: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../video-speed-control/] and I had no problems with it, until today when I went to increase the speed of a video I was watching, and it wouldn't work no matter what. Clicking to increase the video speed doesn't make the video go faster, as it should.

I uninstalled it and installed many other video speed controller addons, one by one, but none of them work at all either!

The video speed control had been working perfectly well up until now, and I hadn't modified any settings or anything else, that might cause it to stop working.

So how can I get this video speed control addon: [|https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-speed-control/] to work for me again? Help! I don't want to switch web browsers.

Thank you very much for your time and help, I really appreciate it!

Version 91 is causing double spacing on drop down menus, ie: bookmarks. In previous versions we were allowed to change to single spacing, but not on 91. When will firefox fix this issue and go back to single spacing? Because of this issue I re-installed version 90 and will not update to future versions unless fixed.

I have many duplicate entries in the "Send Tab to Device" menu, which I believe are from old installs. This occurs on both desktop version of Firefox and Firefox Android.

The problem is they do not appear in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services so I cannot remove them. Only the actual devices I am using appear there.

Any ideas?

Hello,

since the recent update to version 90.0 I noticed that certain websites (youtube, facebook, spotify) won't load at all. I just get a blank screen. Additionally on instagram I can't see any images or videos.

At first I tried to open these websites in another browser (MS Edge) and there everything works just fine.

To solve my problem I already tried a lot of different approaches, but nothing has helped so far. Here is a overview of everything I tired so far: - deleted the cache and cookies (per Firefox as well as with CCleaner) - deactivated and later deinstalled all my add-ons - started Firefox in Troubleshooting-Mode - used the feature to clean Firefox - completely deinstalled and reinstalled Firefox - disabled and deleted my anti-virus software - temporarily stopped Windows Defender Firewall - used new profiles with the about:profiles menu - used different programs I already had installed (avira, Windows Defender, spybot S&D) to scan for viruses, trojans or malware. And I also used the ones Mozilla recommends on this site: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware -> nothing was found apart from a few tracking cookies

Now I am at my wit's end and don't know what else I could do get my Firefox to work properly again. I hope someone more knowledgeable than me can help me out to find a solution.

Best regards and thank you for your help Andreas

I appreciate the hard work, for developing and continue developing the MOZILLA FIREFOX. I am an information seeker. I usually search for information about various things, when I found it out, I simply minimize the browser and when I get free time I will jump into the results. So my problem is the TAB AUTO REFRESHING. I am aware of the add-on 'TAB AUTO REFRESH' but it's not available in ANDROID (I am using one), so anyone have alternative way, please respond. I value your feedback very much.

P.S :- Thank you for your time and response in advance.

Can the Mozilla team PLEASE fix this properly as it appears to mess up a few folks. And the answer is NOT having to quit and restart. They should be presevered in their own right. And please can you implement synching of Pinned Tabs across my login domain. Ta muchly
