I get the following error message when trying to play video on a website using the Firefox browser on an Android TV Box.

"The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support"

Any one else had these issues and know how to resolve this problem?

I have been using Yahoo email and Firefox together for years, and just this week I am unable to attach a file to an outgoing message. When I hit the "paper clip" to attach the screen goes to the File Explorer like usual to browse for the file, but it just sits there and spins. Then it says "not responding" on the top left at the Firefox icon.

I tried it in Chrome and had no problem at all.

Anybody got a clue?

Thanks

I use Bitdefender and continue to get this "Critical Warnings" message. I have brought this up to Bitdefender and obviously their reply is Firefox issue. I have no idea how to get Mozella to fix their "expired" certificates.

Suspicious connection blocked 5 minutes ago

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to ad.afy11.net. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.

Certain websites font's have gone weird in Firefox, it's not reproducable on other computers just my own.

I have looked through this community and run through:

   Set gfx.canvas.azure.backends & gfx.content.azure.backends to direct2d1.1,skia,cairo
   Set gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode to 0
   Set gfx.downloadable_fonts.otl_validation to true
   Disabled hardware acceleration

Firefox Version is: 90.0.2 64-bit Windows 10 21H1 All drivers are up to date

Attached are screenshots from Chrome (what the website is meant to look like) & Firefox - I prefer Firefox over Chrome so I would rather not move.

Facebook has become really slow on Firefox over the last week or so. It is not every time, every day, but the biggest issue is that the images in posts do not appear in a timely manner. I don't seem to have the issue with Safari or Chrome. I checked to see that I do have the most recent Firefox version. 90.0.2 (64-bit) I am on a Mac book pro. thanks!

p.s The image below is a screen shot of an example of the problem. The images never loaded, even in the time it too for me to find out how to ask the question, and then ask it

Hi!

Basically, if I want to select a file for an input field on any website and push the "Browse" button I redirected to an app to select a file on my phone just as normal, but when I select the file and returned to the website it still says there's "no file selected". I can do whatever I want the field remains empty. Same here below this textarea. I can't attach any images to this thread either. What could be wrong? It worked a month ago for sure.

Regards, Peter

Hey, I have already read the other (closed) forum topics. I have the problem, that on some websites all letters from s to z aren't displayed. When I copy the text and paste it to a text editor all letters are there.

Here's what I tried according to other forum topics... - In the font properties all is set to standard fonts for 'latin' and 'other' (sorry I use Firefox in german so I don't know the correct english terms)

- Disallowing webpages to use their own fonts works, but it's no option as the websites now all have ugly fonts and don't look as they're meant to be.

I use FF 90.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 Home.

The problem occurred right away after I installed FF on a new computer. I have also tried syncing to my account and de- and reinstalling. Same problem all the time. The problem does not occur in other browsers, like Chrome, Edge, Opera. Only in FF... Any idea what I could do? It would be sad to use another browser in the future, but since I'm also a web developer it's really not an option to work like that... Any help is highly appreciated.

Cheers, Sven

I spent way too long trying to figure out how to get Tbird to send messages via my GMail account with two factor authentication. This was a fresh installation of Thunderbird after I installed a new hard drive on my PC.

Until I fixed my problem, I kept getting this message when trying to send: Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.google.com timed out. Try again.

I'm embarrassed to say that the problem was that I had been using smtp.google.com when I need to use smtp.gmail.com.

Maybe it will help others trying to configure Tbird for Gmail with 2FA if I post exactly what is now working for me in Tbird v 78.12.0. Here are all the settings:

FOR POP3 CONNECTION:

 Server Name: pop.gmail.com
 Port:  995  
 User Name:  myacct@gmail.com
 Connection security:  SSL/TLS
 Authentication method:  Normal password
 Type of password used:  an application password generated in my Google account.

FOR SMTP CONNECTION:

 Server Name:  smtp.gmail.com
 Port:  465
 User name:  myacct@gmail.com
 Authentication method:  Normal password
 Connection Security:  SSL/TLS
 Type of password used:  an application password generated in my Google account.

I don't know if it was necessary or not, but I used a separate app password for POP3 and and another for SMTP I did this by clearing out the passwords stored under Tools > Options > Privacy & Security > Passwords. Then I first tried SMTP, entered one app p/w for that, then tried POP3, and entered another app p/w for that. (Tbird doesn't appear to allow me to use separate passwords otherwise.)

Hope this helps someone.

Hello,

every single time I wake up my Windows 7 Firefox refuses to load any website. It is a Firefox defect, because Windows's Internet icon shows that Internet is available. DNS is also working, while Firefox refuses to load a web. I need to wait 10-15 seconds until Firefox condescendingly loads the web I am trying to access. This bug is very annoying as it happens a few times each day :(

Firefox displays an icon for Facebook Container on my website's newsletter's form's email entry box. The more info states: "Allow Facebook to track you here?

This site can share your email address with Facebook, which allows Facebook to track you. Use a service like Firefox Relay to hide your real email address."

How do I get rid of this icon/service for Firefox Relay? It stops some people from signing up for my newsletter.

I do not display social media icons and do not offer social media sharing options except for a Pin It button for Pinterest on my website: https://www.scrapish.com/.

I am no tech guru. Everything I have searched for help on firefox is completely foreign to me. the system crashes all the time., Settings do NOT work properly as I cannot deselect firefox as my default browser ever since it updated to 90. Now on 90.0.2, everything is a nightmare! I don't think anyone wants to spend 4-8+ hours trying to find out how to use the computer! So, if anyone can speak in plain English & not computer tech code which I do not understand, then help me please! As I look furhter down this page of questions, I have no idea how where to look & what I am supposed to be looking for. So, all I can say is I have a Windows 10 64-bit laptop with CCleaner free version, Malwarebytes free version, Smart defrag free version, Iobit uninstall without all the add-ons.

I am partially-sighted and use a screen-reader ZoomText 9.0 I have the latest version of Thunderbird If I receive an e-mail with additional content, i.e. Thunderbird puts ann orange banner across the top (Thunderbird has blocked some content in this e-mail - Options). My screen-reader will usually freeze and I will have to shut down my computer. E-mails these days increasingly have this additional "remote" content I had hoped that by blocking the content, Thunderbird would be in a sort of safe mode, but this is not the case. I realize that ZoomText may not be supported by Mozilla If I leave the e-mail open in a new tab, or selected and displayed in the preview panel, my screen-reader will freeze again on start-up. Is there any sort of safe mode when opening Thunderbird? Many thanks Kay
