Firefox stops audio playback when on a teams meeting while using a BT headset. Is there a way to prevent firefox from stopping audio playback?

I was on a teams meeting because I wanted to do a study session with someone on another country. As part of the homework I needed to do, I needed to listen to some audio. I changed my windows audio devices to output through the Communications device for the headset. Then I played the audio on a tab. The audio played for a few seconds before stopping again.

I understand that this is behaviour intended to let you take a call or meeting without having to manually pause any open tabs you might not have at hand, but I would like Firefox to understand I really want that audio to play without thinking it knows better. Is there any way to disable this behavior?

I recently had an SDD M.2 die on me (Boot drive). So have installed a replacement drive. The W10 install went well and installed a couple of apps such as SoftMaker Office. Then TB. Installed fine, but does not seem to work. I do have Web access to the Internet and so far all I can find that is not working is my TB. I have cut and pasted ALL login details to the account. Identical details to this PC (W11) which is working. Help, please?

It's probably going to be something stupid I've mixed. Regards Kevin

A few web sites I've ordered from for many years have been getting annoyingly buggy, to the point where I've had to resort to phone or chat to get the order through. Issues have included not accepting the security code on a credit card, changing the order or price when it shows in the cart, suddenly disappearing the payment page... Etc. Some of this is (I think) just recent silly software changes (maybe). When I ask what the problem is, customer service rep asks what browser I use; when I say Firefox, they indicate they're optimized for/more familiar with Edge or Chrome. Is this something other users are running into? Can't believe it's just me.....Guessing you might be able to get some hints from what's below?

Thanks......

I am running Firefox 119.0 on Linux and am unable to stream video on many sites. I have tested a few sites, and the only site that actually works for streaming video is YouTube. The others either say 'Source Error' or just load forever.

Things I have tried:

  • Accepting cookies (via site exception)
  • Turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the site that won't stream video
  • Turned off pop-up blocker
  • Enabled auto-play of video and audio on the site
  • Checked for updates of Firefox (but there are none available)
  • Launched Firefox in Troubleshooting mode with all extensions and customizations disabled, but this makes no difference

At this point, after doing some online research and trying everything I can think of, I'm really out of ideas.

I would appreciate any suggestions or information anybody has.

Thank you

Do you (as a Mac user) experience the same or similar:

44 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content ranging from 60MB-918MB each, with 18 of them above 200MB and 5 of them above 400MB. I have 15 tabs open and in practical terms almost nothing else open on the computer (a brand new M3 silicon iMac). It has 8 GB of memory. I had similar experiences in the past, but never as bad as now. I do not know everybody else can live with this.

Is this how Firefox is designed to operate or is this a bug?

Thanks.

I need to update Mozilla Firefox ( (I currently have version 67.0 (32 Bit) installed. Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical 1.0). It was initially uploaded (a few years ago), via Package Manager.

Please let me know how can I proceed to achieve this update. Thank you!

Good Afternoon, I was looking at some images on Wednesday 28th Feb on Pinterest which I booked marked but when I tried to find them the following day they weren't there. I checked history and Library and restore. And the 27th and 28th Feb are missing. So I am thinking do I have two Firefox accounts and that's the reason the dates are missing ?. Is their anyway to find the two days I was browsing ?.

Useless and very annoying popup message needs to be removed from program code - "operation failed because another program is using the folder"

1. DO NOT TELL ME TO REMOVE ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM TO FIX THIS BUG IN THUNDERBIRD 2. DO NOT TELL ME WHY THE PROGRAM IS DISPLAYING THIS IDIOTIC ERROR MESSAGE, I DO NOT CARE, THAT IS NOT MY PROBLEM, THAT IS NOT WHY I AM POSTING THIS QUESTION/REQUEST/BUG REPORT 3. I AM NOT A PROGRAMMER WHO CAN DOWNLOAD THE THUNDERBIRD CODE AND FIX THIS ISSUE MYSELF 4. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT ANYONE WHO IS NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THIS QUESTION/COMMENT/BUG REPORT, AND RESPOND UNDERSTANDING THE POINT THAT I AM MAKING, IS A TRUE IDIOT, A MORON

Here is the text from the same question last year, but after that people posted thousands of words telling me to uninstall anti-virus or making all sorts of other silly suggestions, NONE OF THAT MATTERS, PLEASE UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING!!!

EVEN IF ALL OF WHAT THEY WERE SAYING IS TRUE, AND I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT IT IS, THAT IS NOT THE PROBLEM, THE PROBLEM IS THE IDIOTIC ERROR MESSAGE!! IT DISPLAYS AN IDIOTIC ERROR MESSAGE THAT THE USER IS FORCED TO CLEAR BY PRESSING ESCAPE OR OK BUTTON, BUT THERE IS NOTHING THE USER CAN DO ABOUT THE ISSUE, OTHER THAN UNINSTALLING ANTI-VIRUS APPARENTLY, BUT THE ERROR MESSAGE DOES NOT SAY THAT!!!!!!

The idiotic error message should be silent, posted in a log perhaps, to let someone know of the matter, IF THEY ARE PROGRAMMING OR WHATEVER. BUT THE AVERAGE USER CANNOT CHANGE WHATEVER IS CAUSING THE ERROR, SO THEY SHOULD NOT BE REPEATEDLY ANNOYED WITH THIS STUPID MESSAGE.

ORIGINAL QUESTION (EDITED) BELOW:

I have e-mail messages in 20 or more different folders, and there are five or more accounts. When using the Offline/Download Sync command, where it checks each folder and downloads all the messages, it often generates a useless popup message. If the message should say "Thunderbird is not compatible with virus scanning programs, please remove your virus scanning program!" then have it say that! But that is idiotic! So just MOVE ON, don't repeatedly display the idiotic message, maybe just put some notice in a log or whatever. But it is simply insane to keep displaying this idiotic message when all the end-user can do is clear it and ignore it! I say useless because there is literally zero that I can do to change anything that is apparently generating the problem that causes it to proclaim the error, except apparently uninstall anti-virus which isn't going to happen, not when Thunderbird is THE ONLY PROGRAM WHO CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO JUST MOVE ON WHEN A FILE IS NOT AVAILABLE TO IT BECAUSE SOME STUPID ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM IS SCANNING IT, IF THAT IS EVEN THE PROBLEM.

Apparently some other process is using a folder when the download routine attempts to use the folder, so it 'beeps' and displays the message attached below. But again, there is nothing the end user can do except be annoyed and click the OK button to close the message.

If this is needed for debug purposes or other coding programmer reasons, just put the error in a log, don't annoy the end user with a message about something over which they have zero control.

If I am still not explaining this correctly, discuss that, the display of the error IS THE PROBLEM, not whatever is going on the background, about which I have no information or concern, that is someone else's problem, maybe they need the error message, the end-user does not, it is just a useless annoying bug in the program.

I looked into how to engage in the programming website and post the bug there, but I would appreciate very much if someone else who is familiar with that can put this bug on the programming website, it just seems bit more than I am ready to involve myself in.

At least it would be helpful also, for someone to replay that you understand the point I am making here, the popup message IS THE PROBLEM, the bug repair is to STOP THUNDERBIRD from repeatedly displaying the useless popup message. This should be a very simple programming fix. Thank you.

It used to be that all ticked device settings in Edit Mode, standard and custom, are selectable in Web Developer Tools / Responsive Design Mode. Before, the cursor, indicated by the blue outlined box as shown in the attached screen shot, wraps around the list of devices to show the other hidden device settings. But now, the cursor just wraps but the values in the list do not adjust to show the other device setting that are available to be selected.

I don't know if I unknowingly, did something that triggered the lost functionality mentioned above.

How could I restore this lost functionality so that I could test my website in all the device settings that I have checked in the Edit mode?

It only backs up the tabs from your last close, so if you had a problem and closed twice, all your tabs are gone. There are many many easy ways to change it so this can never happen to people anymore. Why has this not been fixed after all this time? I am a retired IT pro and this has even happened to me. It is horrible. What can users do to not have this happen, since the developers apparently can't be bothered? And please don't tell me not to keep so many tabs open JUST because the browser sucks at protecting them. Any good news appreciated. Thanks.
