Video Not Playing Until Firefox Is Restarted Once

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-76… (read more)

Okay, PopOS 21.04, Firefox 92.0 x64, my packages are up to date, my graphics card (Nvidia 1080) drivers are up to date (nvidia-driver-470 (proprietary)), kernal 5.13.0-7614-generic.

I run a variety of addons, but the only ones that should even be touching YouTube in any way would be Noscript, Ublock Origin, YouTube HD, HTTPS Everywhere. In the past with my current configuration none of these have given me any issues with playback.

I don't have any idea why, this is a problem I experienced a long time ago and now newly the other day for seemingly no good reason, videos on YouTube but also the web in general will not play until I open Firefox, close the browser, open it again, and then try and do whatever it was I'm trying to do. While not a fatal issue, this is one that is extremely annoying and I really don't feel like putting up with it.

Anyone have any advice or information?

Cannot get rented/paid Youtube or Netflix video to run. Message "! Sorry, there was an error licensing this video" pops up onYoutube screen every time when hitting play button. "Free" Youtube videos work just fine, paid content gets this message. Have firefox-9.5.0.2.ta.bz2, use Linux updated software. Followed all previous suggested Support, cannot seem to find fixes that included DRM, Safemode switch, etc. Thanks for previous help, still stuck... anymore ideas appreciated. Also, difference between running "normal and beta", please explain, and how to know "differences?"

I forgot my password to my Firefox account, and only just realized I haven't updated it in KeypassXC when I was trying to log in to a new machine. It seems that, even though I am already logged in on my old computer and have full access to my account (including saved passwords, bookmarks, and browsing history) I can't find a way to reset my password without deleting all of my synced data. From the "Change Password" menu, it requires my old password if I want to change it without deleting everything. Also, I have 2FA enabled, so why isn't there the option to authenticate my identity in a password reset using 2FA instead of my old password? I know a similar thing already exists for recovery keys, but I only have 2FA. Is there any way for me to reset my password where I don't lose everything? Thank you.

Since a recent update the spacing of words in Firefox's UI as well as on some websites seems to be wider than normal (instead of a singular space it seems as if each space is now a tab wide). Additionally the numbers have also suffered and are now not presented in a normal font anymore but instead seem bigger and grey instead of white or black. Both of these issues occurred at the same time and appear on the normal User Interface of Firefox (e.g. in the bookmarks or in Firefox's settings and preferences) as well as on some websites/search engines. However when copying the text and numbers from Firefox into a regular text editor everything seems normal and no appearance issues can be noticed. What I've already tried: I've restarted my system multiple times since the issue first occurred. I've removed all contents from /home/user/.mozilla/firefox. I've reinstalled Firefox. I've deleted my cache. I've changed my font preferences in Firefox back to Default(Roboto) after having used Inter before. None of my actions above have changed anything. However, when I log into a different user on my computer and open Firefox there everything seems to be normal, so it seems as if this is a user-specific problem.

Thanks in advance, Emma.

OS: opensuseTumbleweed 20220507 Firefox version: 100.0 (issue has occurred since version 98.0)

Whether I was in the standard Firefox search window, or Google, or DuckDuckGo (my preferred choice), I was able to click on a specific topic in the search window and have it automatically open a new window within the Firefox window settings. I can no longer do this with Firefox 100.

Please fix!

Adblockers, namely ghostery, and other extensions are broken. Some pages that adblockers would allow to load quickly take 'forever' to load - or at least far longer than I'm willing to wait - which is minutes since I try to load them in the background. Also autoplay blocking doesn't seem to work since it constantly tries to load video even though I have autoplay shut off.

Hello! Please, implement the built-in speed dial, like in Opera and Vivaldi. It's extremely convenient and useful, lots of people need this. I've been using Firefox for more than 10 years and I hate your stupid "Firefox Home" page (sorry) on desktop and Android with icons that add automatically and I can't change and locate. It's inconvenient and completely useless. It would be great if you create something like Opera 12.17 or 12.18 had. In addition, please remove the "close" button in the last tab. I know that I can do it via the "config mode" (browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab), but it's not user-friendly. It's inconvenient when you close the tab just to return home, but the whole browser closes. It makes me nervous. Thank you in advance! You are doing a great job, wish you good luck, and hope that one day Firefox will be more popular than Chromium-based browsers.

Hi there,

I'm using my PC for local web development. I use Firefox as my regular browser and recently, in order to distinguish between personal time and development time, I've established a new profile just for development purposes.

The local website I can't reach is "site.local.dev". My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 and that URL points to a local IP on my network (resolved via /etc/hosts file on my PC).

Funny thing is that: - In dev-profile: site.local.dev does not work => "Unable to connect" and the URL bar shows https://site.local.dev even if I force it to http:// - In personal-profile: site.local.dev does work :P

I have tried with CLI tools like "wget", "hosts", "ping", "telnet" and so on and the site loads ok. Even I have used Dillo (damn simple web browser) and the site loads ok also.

Things I've tried so far: - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327 (similar issue, not exactly the same).

It must be a silly thing but I'm out of options now. Perhaps anybody has faced to this situation in the past: any suggestion on this issue?.

Thanks in advance, Ibon.

Hi,

I've upgraded to Firefox 99 (on Linux) and a website that works fine in Firefox 88 and Chromium 101 has stopped working for me - I can't get the log in form to show up.

This is in a standard window (as opposed to private) with all add ons disabled, Enhanced Tracking Protection switched off for the site and protection settings set to 'Custom' with everything switched off (and same with protection settings set to 'Standard').

The website is:

https://www.riverford.co.uk/

and then click on person icon in the top right corner.

I'm having similar problems with other websites, eg

https://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/

in a private window (but weirdly works fine in a standard window) - click on 'Example protein sequence' to fill in a sample sequence and then press 'Search'. In a standard window this works but in a private window the 'Search' button doesn't work. (If the search button does work for you, please delete the job afterwards by clicking on the rubbish bin/trashcan icon so as not waste their resources.)

I am developing an extension. I am running the extension locally and I have noticed that it doesn't load on this page (https://support.mozilla.org). Is there some limitation to running extensions here? The same extension works fine in google chrome for this page. It is very important for me that the extension runs everywhere since it's an accessibility extension.
