For some reason I can't watch any of the licensed content on youtube I purchased, and I cannot watch anything on netflix. Both problems appeared at the same time so I thought they might be related. I have disabled hardware acceleration with no effect. I have cleared history and deleted cookies. I have also disabled my vpn, but none of it works.

Anyone else had this problem? Netflix says "browser not supported" and youtube says "problems showing licensed content."

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

greetings. i have used firefox for years but one thing has just stumped me. since yesterday all the headings and banners on all websites i view have lost their normal colour and font etc, and appear as light blue text in outlined white boxes. the various components of each website appear to load ok otherwise. see the bbc website pictures attached that were taken at the same time. this is nothing to do with the firefox themes as the browser itself is all good; and if i load the same web pages on safari then they appear as they should. the mac seized up after some error yesterday and restarted itself; i think this problem started after that episode. i downloaded firefox again and that didn't clear the problem, so i'm guessing there's something in settings that i can't find. any suggestions?

So the issue started happening after firefox updated to version 91. Now every time i restart the browser, all site settings are reset. That includes acknowledging new machine sign-ins into gmail (every single time even after choosing to remember the device), entering verification codes sent to my email to sign into other websites that I never signed out of before closing the browser. Some websites like youtube and twitch I have to set up over and over again. This is extremely annoying and I've never had these issues before the update. I checked all the settings for clearing data upon closing the browser and none are enabled just like they have never been. I do not want to reinstall firefox as I have a load of personalized tweaks done that I cant even remember. Any suggestions?

Hey!

First of all I am using Firefox 91.0.1 on a macOS Big Sur 11.2.1. Since recently I am having a lot of problems with the design of websites. Colors and shapes are not working properly. Does anyone experience the same problem or has any suggestions on how to fix it?

I have attached two pictures to show the issue. One is a Wikipedia page that lacks color and the other one is Google looking a bit goofy.

Thanks! Felix

One reason why I liked Firefox so much were two tools in particular that have been inexplicably REMOVED by recent updates, View This Image (or Picture) and View Page Info. Now Firefox is just like everybody else and their brothers. I was wondering if there is an add-on or extension that addresses this deficiency.

I just noticed: Firefox no longer shows installed add-ons and extensions. WTF???

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.
