Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

I'm not able to stream any content on Netflix, Amazon Prime, channel 4, 5 using firefox. The error message is 'The widevine CDM plugin has crashed'. I looked up in preferences/ extensions and themes/ plug ins and it seems like the widevine CDM plug-in was automatically updated today (21.4.2021) and now it's crashing. My firefox is 78.10, the latest for OSX 10.9. Can anyone suggest how to resolve this ?

Every time I close out Firefox and then restart it, the browser address bar has an orange stripe with a robot icon that says my browser is in remote control mode. I have to go into the about:config panel and search for the "Marionette" options. If I toggle the two settings that are true/false and restart, the remote control goes away. I did not install this feature, I have no idea how to use it, I don't need it, and I'm tired of having to do this every time I open Firefox. It's ridiculously annoying to the point that I'm ready to start using another browser. The internet has NO practical help on how to fix this for anyone who is not an expert in computer code. I need a permanent fix for this pesky and annoying bug.

Hello, and Iọkwe (Fond Greetings) from the Marshall Islands,

I work for the Customary Law and Language Commission of the Marshall Islands < cllcrmi.com >, and one of our commitments to the Marshallese people is to set the official spelling of the Marshallese language.

We have a dictionary file ready to go for the MS Word spellchecker, and we would like to expand spellchecking capabilities into Firefox.

How could we do this?

Is there any way to stop Firefox automatically installing updates on Linux? It's incredibly disruptive when I'm in the middle of work, open a new tab and Firefox says it needs to be restarted to install updates. When in this state, opening new tabs yields the same result. I'm using 87.0 built for Ubuntu, installed out of the package repo.

I'm seeing some weird behavior in FF.

I have an HTML page that allows the user to click on a link to trigger a file upload to a remote server. The file being uploaded is usually > 2GB and takes a LONG time to upload (sometimes > 1.5hrs due to slow link to remote server).

What we see is the remote server ends up with multiple corrupted versions of the same file.

Could it be that FF is silently timing out waiting for a HTTP response and then retrying to upload the file? I can't think of any other explanation for the multiple files, since the user only clicks once on the hyperlink.

Thank you, Dan

I know how to get the Page Info (Tools/Click Padlock) but noticed in the popup context menu for this version that it is missing now when right clicking on a page or image. Only see View Page Source in the menu. Anyway to get the context menu back so it shows "View Page Info"? Maybe edit the "about:config page"?
