Hello,


While trying to watch "big" mp4 files, I get the error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.


Smaller files seem to work fine. The problem seem to start around 3-4 GB.


Things I tried:

- Safe mode

- Refresh firefox

- Completely wipe and reinstall, the problem remains.


Since I was due for an OS upgrade, I upgraded to High Sierra. Fresh install (wiped the disk), fresh Firefox install, and the problem remains.

Chrome will load it up after 2-3 seconds. Safari gives the same error.

The file also works in all the players I tried: VLC 1.x, VLC 2.x, VLC 3.x, MPV, MplayerX.

So to recap: Fresh High Sierra install, fresh Firefox install (without sync - no addons), unable to read MP4 files bigger than 3-4 GB.

Help?

Been using the mozillaZine forums off and on for years, but now unable to log in. And when attempting to ask about this thru the Help forum or to re-register, can't get past the security question (How many letters in Mozilla?) - the answer "7" results in "You have provided an invalid answer to the question." (also tried "8" and "seven" and "eight")

Any ideas? Thanks!

How can I grab the .webloc?

I'm on Firefox Quantum 61.0.2. Four years ago (1/16/14, 6:55 PM), when I was on 26.0, I posted here recollecting a feature in an earlier version where you could grab the little icon right left of the URL and drag it to a Finder container, and... a teensy file would appear, named something intelligent, with the extension ".webloc". Very handy sometimes.

That feature had disappeared, but, at the time, with your help, we figured out that Command-drag would do the same thing on Version 26.0.

Now, using Version 61, that feature has disappeared again. I tried dragging with nothing, Command, Option and Control. Each of them simply opened the tab in a new window. No webloc files were created. Any idea where this feature went?


Maybe there's a better way to solve my problem besides weblocs. For one of my frequently-performed tasks, I need to open four websites simultaneously, in four separate tabs. I can enter their URLs manually, but I was hoping to have a folder containing four weblocs that I could open all at once. An Applescript would work, but is there some other Firefox feature that I could learn to use that would accomplish the same thing?

Firefox is not "repainting" when another open window is moved across in front of it

This issue has been going on for a while now, through several versions since about 59 or so. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Very fast computer with 8 Gigs of ram.

The issue is that when Firefox is open and I drag another open window in front of it, it leaves white lines and stripes of varying widths, like "ghost trails" from the trailing edges, across the Firefox window below. (see photo) Those lines stay there until I click on the Firefox window, bringing it to the top. Then the window's border and menu bar will repaint, but the window content itself doesn't until I click the top title bar and start to drag the window.

This only happens to Firefox, and not with any other open windows or applications at all. It also doesn't matter what open window is being dragged in front of it, whether is a file explorer window or another program app.

I've read up on other "repainting" issues, but this seems to be different and non of the other solutions seem to have any affect. Not enabling or disabling Hardware Acceleration, or turning Clear Type on or off.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

FYI... I tried adding the picture, but the little image upload box below just has the wheel spinning for the last 20 minutes. So, if the image doesn't show, then it must not have uploaded for some reason. Going to click "Post Question" now. Hope it works.

I'm using Firefox 61.0.2 under Mac OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6.

I drive for Uber. The Uber website has worked fine for years. Then, in late July or August, Uber's website's web pages started showing up in Greek! Since then, I've been using Safari instead because I learned all the Greek I know from college math class, which isn't enough to navigate the Uber website using Firefox.

I have not noticed this effect on any other website. Safari Version 11.1.2, on the same webpage, shows me English.

Please suggest how I can research what to do to get Uber's website's webpages to render in English.

Is there a way in which I can use my keyboard to quickly search for all my stored bookmarks?

Google Chrome has the ability to setup shortcuts for Add Ons / Extensions. For example I can use Ctrl + S to search via my Lastpass password vault.

Does Firefox have some sort of equivalent to this or a way in which to search bookmarks quickly?

Kind regards Duncan

In some cases it works, in some not. Right here it works, for example. On Github doesn't.

Just for the record, FF Developer Edition 62.0b20 works fine.
