I installed this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/o-reilly-epub-downloader/ extension to my browser, but it not worked and I unistalled. I'm afraid that it may be a malware or something like this. Anyone can confirm? since I uninstalled and used my anti-virus (bitdefender) would have any problems? Would you recommend any other measures?

Thank You very much!

I've used Firefox for many years, and NEVER has the "block audio and video" setting ever worked. It is really annoying to be trying to read an article and have a video playing - distracting me - while I'm trying to read. When I try to ignore it and scroll past, it pops out and starts playing in the lower right hand corner in the way of whatever I'm trying to read, so I have to close the video down. I'm not a programmer, I'm a simple user. Why is Mozilla even pretending to block videos when they don't?

Have a strange delay that has happened a number of times that causes a delay of about 2 minutes and 40 seconds for Firefox to open on my fully updated Fedora 33 64bit system? Using strace it pauses at these to times.

ppoll([{fd=10, events=POLLIN}], 1, {tv_sec=119, tv_nsec=999420000}, NULL, 8) = 1 ([{fd=10, revents=POLLIN}], left {tv_sec=46, tv_nsec=773625894}) ppoll([{fd=14, events=POLLIN}], 1, {tv_sec=119, tv_nsec=999274000}, NULL, 8) = 1 ([{fd=14, revents=POLLIN}], left {tv_sec=113, tv_nsec=850834948})

When it doesn't happen there are no lines with the ppoll information in the strace. At same time, google chrome will load in seconds, just like firefox when it is working correctly.

First time it happened was after an upgrade to latest kernel, so thought that might have been it. Rebooted system to previous kernel, but problem still occurred. Downgraded firefox to previous version, but that also resulted in no change. Checked the rpm listing, and found that nss i686 had also been updated in last pass, so did a reinstall of the nss*x86_64 files. Problem disappeared, and firefox was back to loading in seconds versus the 2 minutes and 40 seconds. (Does seem to work ok once loaded). Reloaded with latest kernel, an it still worked. Upgraded to latest firefox again, and still worked. Ran fine for a full day, but then it started doing the same. Tried the nss reinstall, but no change. Rebooted machine, no other changes, and it went back to working??

Have the strace dump file that is about 4M - line numbers that issue happens. 2687 ppoll([{fd=10, events=POLLIN}], 1, {tv_sec=119, tv_nsec=999420000}, NULL, 8) = 1 ([{fd=10, revents=POLLIN}], left {tv_sec=46, tv_nsec=773625894})

 4422	ppoll([{fd=14, events=POLLIN}], 1, {tv_sec=119, tv_nsec=999274000}, NULL, 8) = 1 ([{fd=14, revents=POLLIN}], left {tv_sec=113, tv_nsec=850834948})

Total of 57123 lines firefox.bad

A run without the errors is about 50866 lines long and has no ppoll lines??

Only seen error with firefox, so not sure if it is related to firefox or firefox with something else in system??

Basically, out of nowhere, youtube simply refuses to load up in firefox. I have cleared my cookies, turned off my add-ons (only have u-block origin), and even started firefox in troubleshooting mode, but the problem persists. I have no clue about what to do at this point. The first part of youtube does load fine, but if I try to scroll down, it just stays blank. Sometimes videos do load, but not the comments. Finally, youtube studio does work, it's just the main site and trying to watch videos that gives me trouble.

When I use the following website, https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/ , some of the features do not work with Firefox.

For example, if you move the cursor to the Brands heading, it shows a drop down list, but if you move the cursor towards the list in any direction, the list disappears (I have attached a screenshot showing the drop down list). The same problem also occurs when you put the cursor onto the On Sale and Services headings as they also display a drop down list.

I have tried running Firefox in Safe Mode (Troubleshoot Mode) but they still don't work.

I have also tried using Chrome and Edge and these functions work okay so any ideas what I need to do to the Firefox settings/options to get these functions to work?

Thanks.

I have had a single Firefox Account since 2018. I have updated through three primary email addresses: let's call them 1, 2 & 3.

July 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 2, and removed primary email 1.

August 2020 - I registered for Firefox Monitor. I added many "another email" (the maximum number, 10 I think) to be monitored : let's call them emails 4-13, and set "Send breach alerts to the affected email address".

December 2020 - I changed Firefox Account to primary email 3, and email 2 is my account secondary email.

April 2021 - I received an email to email 4 saying it was in a breach.

Today - on monitor.firefox.com it says I am not monitoring any emails except my primary email 3, and have not been in any breaches as pictured.

Therefore, there is a bug with monitor.firefox.com: - On the one hand, email 4 (and presumably 5-13) are all still being monitored. - But on the other hand, monitor.firefox.com states I am not monitoring any other emails.

Could a Mozilla dev please get in touch to look into this specific case?

Can I change the keyboard shortcut for Responsive Design Mode which is Ctrl+Shift+M?

The fingerprints are the biggest privacy threat on the internet. Firefox has great add-ons for that, but the problem is the screen size (resolution). I have a very rare screen size, only 1% has it, so I'm always unique on the net. You can change the resolution using Responsive Design Mode, but I would like to get it faster, at least by changing the shortcut.

It would be great if someone would make an add-on for this, that is, with one click to the Responsive Design Mode.

Hello, is it me or are more people having issues with streaming HD videos on Amazon Prime Video on Firefox? Strangely, while some titles can be streamed in HD, it is impossible for other titles. However, it works perfectly fine on Chrome!

I have the DRM enabled and everything (otherwise it wouldn't play anything) and yet the issue persists. I also contacted Amazon support and they basically said they'll forward this (whatever).

I'm sure it is a browser issue since I can stream the same title in HD on other browser. I am so angry since I use this browser as the default and this isn't the first time I've encountered this dumb issue either!

This is very bizarre and a specific problem. Ever since I purchased a new HP laptop this has started happening regularly: I would open Firefox and watch a few YouTube videos normally. After maybe the 3rd or so video, ALL the sonud of my entire laptop would stop working. I'd check the volume control and it all shows fine, however I can't hear any sound from anything else, not from other browsers, not from the computer's own media players, nothing, even though there is no 'muted' icon showing on anything. The moment I shut down Firefox ALL the sound comes back straight away. This has been happening constantly and I've had this laptop for a few months now (it didn't happen on my old laptop). So yes, obviously I've restarted the laptop loads of times. It keeps happening.

I've been using Firefox when it was sort of called Netscape Navigator and its Mozilla's companion mail client - Thunderbird.

So it was a bit annoying (but easily corrected, of course) that Mozilla would undercut it's own products by changing the Thunderbird as the default mail client in favor of something that resembles Microsoft - after a couple of decades of use.

Just noting

I don't want to enable 2FA for Firefox Addons website and I don't want to download a third party app for this, I just want to be able to log in to the website.

If I click the "cancel" link (at the bottom), it brings me back from where I was and still not logged in
