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 ?

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

Upgraded to a new Firefox version. Lost the ability to separate the Homepage from New Window behaviour. Is there no way to specify these two things separately? It seemed to be working fine when I first upgraded, but in the options it shows everything as "Blank Page", so if I want to change my homepage URLs, I have to set it to that and if I do that, it undoes the separation of the homepage and new windows and I have to go set it again in about:config...? One of my most used features was this separation of the Homepage with New Windows, gave me a lot of control.

hi there!

is there a way to open a firefox tab in a new private window? it's something i'm wishing for all the time!

(google posts from many years ago state a way to select this option from the menu, but if it worked it no longer is in the menu.)

my reason for needing this so often is that i have many add-ons that block trackers, ads, etc, which are disabled for my private mode. so if a tab won't load, it would be the easiest way by far to get it to do so!

thanks for any help!

Last week (14 April 2021) I was able to watch videos on netflix and hulu. This week (21 April 2021), however, a yellow bar appears across the top of the page, saying, on the left-hand side: "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed Learn more...", and, on the right-hand side, "[Reload page] [Submit a crash report]". Repeated submissions of crash reports, as well as repeated reloading of the page, results in exactly the same: same yellow bar, same inability to watch videos. Likewise, clicking on "Learn more" merely results in the widevine.com page, which states that the company does not service end-users. In addition, last week (14 April 2021), I purchased a video on youtube, and watched part of it. This week (21 April 2021), wanting to watch the rest of the video, all I encounter is: "Your browser can't play this video. Learn more." Clicking on "Learn more" yields "Your browser is up to date. You can use YouTube's latest features!" Repeat ad nauseam. So, it seems that, even though my browser is up-to-date, I am still unable to watch videos on either youtube, hulu, or netflix.

Hi Team

We have a problem with printouts, i.e. when we have a generated printout and it is opened by the built-in pdf viewer in ff, then after clicking print, the spooler becomes clogged and the pdf file weighs almost 100 Mb. There are no such problems when opening the file with the installed Acrobar Reader DC application. A request for information on what may be the cause of this condition. I would like to add that this is the VDA VMware Horizon version 7.10. The Mozilla Firefox browser in the picture is 78.0.2 esr 64 bit.

Kind Regards, Mateusz Jędrzejewski E: mateusz.jedrzejewski@pkobp.pl

When I try to use a platform like Netflix i get repeated error messages that WidevineCdm has crashed. This happens also in other browsers. I am not very tech savvy, but I've tried all the solutions I was able to understand on here and through Google, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Can any one advise?

Not sure if this helps, but here is one of the many crash reports I've sent: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/75e61622-4282-4a83-b86e-9861a0210422

Hi,

I was looking at basically entire collection of addons with different keywords and it seems like I'm still overlooking something. Everything I found, related to taking the screenshots, is based on manual click within an addon but this is NOT what I'm looking for.

Instead, what I would like to do is to define exact URL link and quantity of minutes. Then, assuming that Firefox is running, the addon I'm asking for would automatically take a screenshot every defined quantity of minutes on that defined URL webpage and save it on hard drive on exact defined folder.

The webpage I'm (mostly) interested for contains dynamic numerical values that are in average changing approximately four times per second. I don't need every second, not even every minute. I would take automated screenshots around 96 times per day which is one screenshot every 15 minutes. But quantity of minutes could be changed by me.

Additional problem is that wanted view of the webpage is where scrolling element is approximately on the middle of webpage content. Having said that, I definitely don't want that screenshots are taken from the top because in this case, on screenshot would be missing important graphical data. Solution could be that, instead of image based screenshot, entire webpage is copied into a PDF screenshot every X minutes and file saved. That would assure me that needed content is saved.

The reason why I'm looking for such tool is because I would like to compare the graphical non-stop 24 hours per day changing numbers. Compare them between two different moments in the past. The website is not saving past values so screenshots are the only solution.

I have already seen several different addons related to screenshots but neither of them is offering everything I mentioned:

- automated taking and saving (downloading) with or without my presence in a form of (usually) browsing other websites - ability to define URL so screenshots are taken automatically from this URL - ability to define frequency (one screenshot per every X defined minutes) - automated saving on hard drive

Could anyone please tell me what should I use for that?

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

It's been 3 days since I can no longer play any video since Firefox Developer Edition. I added absolutely nothing and it happened suddenly. When I play a video, I hear the sound but the video loads endlessly. Same with the default HTML reader in Firefox. I tried to go to preferences and uncheck the graphics acceleration, to refresh Firefox, to reinstall it but nothing works! Even in private browsing without any extension, it does not work! I tried from another browser but it works without problems.

Thanks for your help.
