Greetings,

up until Sep 8th, I had no issues at all viewing netflix via firefox. suddenly, streams won't play, they get stuck, I've even encountered a video published in facebook that had it's audio distorted. but if I boot firefox in safe mode, everything works allright. firefox wasn't upgraded, I'm using firefox 80.0.1 on linux. I have noticed that flash was upgraded on Sep 9th but I would expect the same behavior to persists no matter if it is in normal mode or safe mode.

any ideas what can cause this?

Since I help a lot of folks to set up Firefox, and customize the settings a lot, it would be great to have a way to export and import those custom settings. Sync is no help as they don't have an account/setup to sync the settings FROM. But since sync CAN update the settings, how about giving us a separate way to do the same via an exported file????

Please? Sure would make my time to install and set up a LOT easier.

I have used Firefox to access my credit union website. This has worked fine until recently. It might be the install of Firefox 80 that caused my problems.

The website requests uid followed by page for password. Entering password takes me back to a page to enter uid. This goes on for several iterations until I finally get in to the site or I give up and go to Chrome.

My environment is Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia/ Firefox Release 80.0 August 25, 2020.

I have no add-ons in Firefox. I apparently have a Shockwave plugin.

Major Lag switching between windows on Ubuntu (New issue that appeared after updating to FF 80)

Firefox has been severely lagging--specifically when switching between windows. For example, I could have one window running nice and fast, but then when I switch to another Firefox window, it is unresponsive for up to 10 seconds. That means no opening tabs, no scrolling, no loading pages, until it becomes responsive again. And this happens just about every time I switch from one Firefox window to another. It's a big problem because multiple windows are an inherent part of my workflow, so I can't wait 10 seconds every time I have to do something in another window.

Here's a very important piece of information: The problem does not happen in Safe Mode. However, Safe Mode is the only way to fix it. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, disabling all extensions, refreshing FF (creating a new profile), reinstalling it, and the problem always comes back whenever I'm not in safe mode.

I've spent a lot of time on my own trying to solve this, with no luck. Of course, I'd be happy to post any troubleshooting information you may need to help me. Thank you!

Embedded videos at a particular website do not play in FF 80.0.1 (64 bit). My system is running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS.

I have tried workarounds but none have provided a remedy. There could be a bug in FF causing this but I'm not sure.

Here is an example link: https://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/video/1788049475999/Winning-moment-Stage-14

This is the behaviour I see: After I click the play button in the lower left of the embedded frame the video begins to load. The beginning of an ad flashes into the video box but cuts out before playing. The video box is then loaded with the first shot of vision I wish to view but does not play.

I use four FF profiles with various modifications to improve privacy and security. When these changes occasionally cause problems with website function I try loading the website in a FF profile with reduced security/privacy controls. Modifications include changes to privacy and security settings, browser extensions and about:config changes.

Cascading through profiles with a step-wise reduction in the number of modifications still wouldn't permit me to play videos from this site. Even my vanilla FF profile with only a few UI tweaks does not play the video. After that I tried loading problematic pages in a brand new, freshly created vanilla FF profile to which no changes had been made. Videos still wouldn't play in a pristine profile with zero user modifications.

My internet connection comes via a smartphone mobile hotspot. The phone has a system level ad blocker running (Android phone, Blokada app) but switching it off did not allow the videos to play.

After that I tried a different browser. I installed Brave browser via Snap. Version 1.13.82 Chromium: 85.0.4183.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)

It played the video first time. Therefore internet connection to site is good. Did not load advertisement at start of video, no flash of ad content. When the video panel is loaded in Brave a large yellow play button is superimposed on the first frame of the video. The button is a yellow circle with a right-pointing yellow triangle inside it. Clicking the white play button in the lower left corner of the embedded video frame does not play the video. Clicking the large superimposed yellow icon initiates video play.

I'd be grateful for advice on how to rectify this problem.

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality.

Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.

Said postal code remains accessible by Ford.ca... even days after my visit, while I understand that "Private Browsing" should supposedly prevent such situation. Firefox 3.6.6-1.2 came with the newest openSuse 11.3 release. The same situation prevails with our other computer running under openSuse11.2 and daily kept up to date. A solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated!

Support said to enable the auto updates for Firefox at Edit/Preference/Advance then the Update tab. I have no update tab showing so guess I am screwed again. Do I need a better version of Linux (have Freespire) or what is going on here?

I just installed Linus Freespire on a PC that Windows XP had crashed on, and happy to have it take on a new life. When I tried to browse myspace.com, I was forced to upgrade to Firefox 3.6 and downloaded it. It said it went to the desktop, but don't see it there. Instead I get a KArchiver window with Firefox-3.6.6.tar-1 in it. I have tried screwing around with it and its "wizard" until I am about ready to trash the whole thing. Can someone tell me what i need to do to upgrade Firefox 2.0.0.6 to Firefox 3.6.6 besides getting another degree? It would be nice if there where some hints.
