I use the Android beta version of Firefox to open the website as shown in the picture. I've turned on the option Ask me when opening links with external apps in settings. When I clicked the Open APP button in the upper right corner, there was no pop-up window asking me whether to open Quark Browser as expected, but it was downloaded directly. However, when I visit some other websites such as Zhihu, the correct pop-up window appears. What is the problem?

I need to run speech recognition in Firefox (OS solutions are not suitable in my case), but I can't get it to work. I've tried following these instructions in Nightly, Dev and regular version, but they all end with a network error. I also asked my friends to check and they had the same thing happen. Do I need to follow the steps to run offline or is the problem much deeper?

Hello,

I use Firefox stable on both my Mac and my Win 11 PC. On the mac i use the developer edition. The issue I have started about 2-3 weeks ago. Most of the time, playing youtube 4k videos just either freezes and doesn't buffer, or just skips and reloads. It is not a network issue. I've tried playing back the same video with ARC on OSX (which is based on chromium) and with Chome on windows. It works flawlessly so it's not a network issue. I've tried disabling adblocker, all the extensions, nothing. It's either Youtube messing with non google products again or a problem with Firefox itself. I even have Youtube premium and this stuff still happens without adblockers.

Any help would be appreciated.

For the last several months, I have been unable to get audio input from any device working on Firefox. The mic inputs work in all other apps and browsers, are appropriately permissioned on Windows 11, and appear in the Firefox permission windows. No actual audio is received by the website.

I have installed Firefox clean, rebooted countless times, tried the Beta and Dev channel releases, and disabled all extensions, to no avail. I have ensured that I am on the latest releases, have tried various devices, run virus scans. I have included images of the Windows sound settings showing working Mic levels, Firefox showing the device in permissions, etc.

My sound drivers are up to date, and mics work in all other browsers and apps. This is limited exclusively to Firefox.

Hello, I use Firefox as my only browser and I use the shortcuts because they're really helpful. But every time that I lunch Firefox all the pages in the shortcuts "call" their websites, I see it from pihole and all the requests are made every first lunch of Firefox. Probably it's something related to the cache and to give better perfomances in case I wanna select one of those shortcuts, but I don't want that all of them make a "call" to their respective websites. I think it's something related to privacy and freedom about what I want to do with mt browser. Is there an option to block those connections? In case there isn't an option is possible to implement it? Thank you so much

I do not want my searches to be reflected in the address bar. I believe in prior versions of Firefox there was a checkbox to delete that provision. I'm using Firefox 123.0 64-bit with Windows 10 and have been through the setting and more tools areas but found no way to remove that function. I did try the about:config suggestions but still have no joy.

When watching a video on YouTube, the sound suddenly stopped playing. Currently, sounds in video and audio are not played on all sites.

The problem is only in the browser. Audio and video files are perfectly reproduced by the VLC player. There is also sound in the Chrome and Firefox ESR browser.

My actions. 1. Disabled all extensions 2. Clearing history and deleting all cookies

My browser - Firefox Developer edition, version 123.0b9 OS - Debian 12

P.S. I have been using the developer edition for many years. It seems to me more convenient and faster compared to regular Firefox. I really don’t want to delete the customized browser.

I need help with audio in browser...

Many thanks!

I kinda-frequently find myself in the situation that Firefox already downloaded an update, but some time passes before I bit the bullet of actually restarting it. So a new update has appeared - but I can't download it until I restart. So I will have to restart, reload session, download new update, restart again, reload session again.

So it would be great to be able to tell Firefox to forget about the already-downloaded update and just download the latest one. Can this be done?

(The reason why I delay restarting is because I have an unhealthy amount of tabs open, typically with many things in flight; so restarting makes me lose those things, plus there's always the possibility of some trouble while restoring all the tabs)

FWIW I'm in the Beta channel.

Hi. Currntly I'm using 123.0b9 (64 bit) beta FF on W10 and I have this undefined problem with sound when use firefox (problem has start about two months back)- until today I couldnt find the way to make it sound correct with no rattling in the background. Situation occurs when watching any youtube videos od listining some live audio stream (probobly html5 audio in both cases). I was looking for some answers and find out that there was some simillar html5 sound rattling problem already solved some time ago- but this solution does not work for me (I have try to make some settings "false" in "about:config"). I have also try to manually disabled all the extensions and to run firefox in the "problem solving mode" - both with no luck. The solusion for me was to enable "Use hardware acceleration when available" - but I already disable it for a reason - scroll and other extra mouse functions works only when this function is disable... Now i finally have the good sound quality without scrolling or poor sound and scroll - but not both. I hope we can fix this somehow

Attempting to log-in on Twitch with Firefox Browser - Developer version 122.0b9 (64-bit) is currently not possible, repeated messages are prompted by the Twitch website about "unsupported browser" and to contact browser support to resolve this issue.

Clearing cache, disabling extensions did not work. Using regular Firefox works without issues, only noticed this being an issue after most recent update for Firefox Dev browser.

Side effect as well since update is that any Cloudflare captcha is impossible and all website that use Cloudflare to "authenticate" that I'm human just outright fail or continue indefinitely.
