Why is Firefox refusing to display Instagram videos?

Windows 7 Home Firefox 115.12.0esr (64-bit) Some Instagram videos play, most don't. E.g. https://www.instagram.com/reel/C8FM6cbOG7v/?mc_cid=e24e48195f

For a fraction of a second, the video shows what appears to be the initial display frame, then goes black. Audio plays. Displays OK on Chrome and Edge.

I've explored the following: Autoplay is allowed Turn off tracking protection Clear cache Clear cookies Digital Rights Management (DRM) is allowed Running in trouble shoot mode, i.e. no extensions Popups not blocked I do not have file user.js I tried hiding prefs.js. Hardware acceleration either on or off: no display

Is there a setting that tells Firefox to report why it makes its choices?

Setting up additional "dummy" inbox to download messages from yahoo server

Not sure of the best way to ask this. I am using TB 102.13 on a win 7 pro desktop machine.

Cox recently ported my email acount to Yahoo. There are about 100K emails in my cox inbox that were ported to yahoo. After modifying the server settings in TB so that I can use TB with the Yahoo server (I use POP settings), TB now sees all of the 100K emails as new, and each time I click the "get messages" button it starts downloading all of the 100K emails. I closed out of TB to stop the download.

I am told that in order for TB to only download actual new emails from the Yahoo server, I must let this process run. However, my official TB inbox uses about 30 filters to place incoming emails into the correct folders as they are downloaded.

All I want is to download the emails currently on the Yahoo server into a new created "dummy" inbox folder so that after the massive download, I can delete the folder and get back to being able to use TB appropriately. Can someone provide a 'how to" for doing this? TIA

I can no longer use my camera on firefox, firefox displayed some message about camera when we were trying to chat, but I missed it, I have granted relevant permissions on the site, that we use reularly. The camera icon on the address bar appears red, and I noticed that in Windows security, it lists firefox access requests, but shows no way to grant these requests.

I am not tech minded so please if anyone could keep it simple, I would appreciate it.

I am trying to setup an Outlook account on Thunderbird and I get an error: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." I have an existing Outlook account which I am able to use on the Outlook app on Windows, the Android app and the web version on outlook.live.com I wish to have an e-mail client on my Linux Mint machine from which I can access my Outlook e-mails. To do so, I went to the 'Account Setup' page on Thunderbird and used these to set up my account: Your Full Name: <My Name> Email address: <email-id>@outlook.com Password: <My Microsoft password which I use to sign in to Outlook> Under Manual configuration: INCOMING SERVER Protocol: IMAP Hostname: outlook.office365.com Port: 993 Connection Security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: <email-id>@outlook.com OUTGOING SERVER Hostname: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Connection security: STARTTLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: <email-id>@outlook.com

I am sure that the password I am using is indeed the correct password. I still get an error as shown in the screenshot on the Account Setup tab. How do I resolve this issue? Thanks a lot!

As of Sunday, Thunderbird can no longer reach my ATT server to download email. It has behaved for ten to fifteen years. Last time someone at ATT fixed it. I have been on the phone or on screen with ATT most of my waking hours since Sunday. (In the process I lost my internet, my landline, my cell connection, etc.) Everything is restored except the connection between Thunderbird and ATT. Everyone thinks changing my password will do it. Done it four times. It gets me into the ATT mail. I have replaced the password in Thunderbird settings with it to no avail. Is there anything you can think of? Not only is Thunderbird more attractive than ATT, I have thirty years of mail boxes there, a continuation from Eudora. I will appreciate your wisdom.

Hi,

I factory restarted my computer and reinstalled Firefox. When I signed into my Firefox account, all my bookmarks showed up but none of my tabs were loaded. I figured out how to load my tabs up from my previous session but all my bookmarks then deleted. I tried to re-sync but none of the tabs showed up. When I try to restore my bookmarks from the manage bookmarks library, it does not appear. I do not have a backup file for my bookmarks.

Have used Firefox for decades and suddenly it is having problems. If I surf around and have a few tabs open, some of them might crash. Firefox tries to restore them and sometimes it works and sometimes they just crash again immediately. I can go to Amazon and the page won't load completely so I can't do anything. If I try and close Firefox it won't close, it is frozen. And often, pages just load very slowly even though my internet connection is strong. This just started about a month or so ago. I have refreshed Firefox, updated it, and checked the systems on my computer. All my internal diagnostics returned "no issues." So it has to be the program.

daThis is still frustrating. I do not like to use the browser when something else appears to be in control. I have MacAFee and run a scan but nothing shows up? If developers are following my browser, I should beable to turn this off.

I'm connecting to an MS Exchange server via smtp.office365.com and mostly this works OK by now. I do have a stupid problem, however: After deleting several folders, they always "come back" as "ghost folders" (grayed out and without messages) and it's impossible for me to get rid of them. Very annoying. I've tried a couple of steps:

  • of course, I tried deleting the folders through the Thunderbird interface, also from Trash, where they first move to
  • I also tried to delete msf-files associated with the deleted folders -- to no avail
  • I also tried to unsubscribe from these folders using the "Subscribe" interface -- this is not possible: I can tick off the folders, save my choices, but as soon as I open "Subscribe" again, these folders are back
  • I also tried to use Outlook, but the deleted folders are not shown in Outlook -- it seems to me that Thunderbird has difficulties letting them go

I'd be very thankful for any constructive help!

I have had a client for whom I use an outlook.office365.com "thing" and get/send e-mails through their domain.

In prior Tbird releases it just accepted whatever credentials Tbird presents

Recent release - I still authenticate just fine - can receive and transmit e-mails without issue. But every couple of minutes I get a nag screen asking me to login to login.live.com. I dismiss the nag screen, and can still transmit and receive e-mails. This screen is initiated by a Thunderbird process (I know this because if I kill a Thunderbird process in task manager, the screen goes away and everything works as expected. )

I really want no part of the Windows "Live" thing, and have no idea of what "helpful" changes it wants to make, and so I do not login.

"Settings" are set up with cookies set to yes. OAuth2 seems to be selected.

I see no settings that I could use to suppress the nag ... is there anything I can do???

Thanks in advance.
