A picture is worth a thousand words. What i can't screenshot is the suggestions for the correct word, which appear to be from a language other than English.

However, as typing here, the problem seems to have gone away. It appears the problem might be FB or something in some way FB connected. Containers perhaps?

Hi there, I have had a problem with YouTube Music for a long time, and I would like to add YTM as a search provider in Firefox to be able to search for songs, artists, albums etc. more quickly. However, this error message appears every time you try (See image)

I have already tried another Firefox profile, like trying in anonymous mode, but ALWAYS this message appears. Does anyone know what could be the cause or whether this will be fixed by YouTube in the near future? I would really like that because this function would offer me more convenience. You can try it yourself if it is the same with you. Thank you in advance for your answers.

Best regards, Alexander

I also opened this thread in the YTM forum, here is the link: https://support.google.com/youtubemusic/thread/39431231?hl=de

(This message was translated from German to English as there doesn't seem to be a German Firefox Community yet, so please forgive any grammatical errors.)

Recently, if I have 14-15 tabs open, attempting to open a new tab using the new tab button, ctrl-t, or choosing to open a link in a new tab does not open any tabs. Choosing the add-ins menu, the preferences menu or the like from the hamburger menu still opens a new tab as normal even when the new tab functions are no longer working for browsing.

Actually, I would expect or prefer that if choose a search engine during typing, that I get suggestions from this site. But I guess, this is not the case. So which engine gets used?

Привет! Раньше в Firefox был простой редактор JavaScripts, который запускался по нажатию Shift+F4. Сейчас его нет, возможно ли как-то вернуть?

В "Инструментах веб-разработчика" присутствовал простой редактор JavaScript, а теперь его нет.

Today firefox prompted me to upgrade to the latest version, i upgraded to 75.0, then a problem began with youtube. whenever i hover the mouse over the video window the progress bar comes up with white background instead of being transparent as usual, and that huge white bar hides half the video window. i attached a picture, in the top the video is normal when the progress bar is hidden, but when i hover the mouse to bring the progress bar this white monster bar comes up and hides half the screen. the exact same thing happens when the video is full screen too.

i tried removing all plug-ins and extensions, it still happened.

i cleared cache, history, cookies, it still happened.

i logged off completely, it still happened when i played a video without being logged in.

i started firefix in safe mode, still happened in safe mode.

chrome, opera, and edge work alright on youtube. only firefox following today's update. Any help? Thanks

As of today, 04/09/20, every time I highlight something and then right click menu to search yahoo for whatever I highlighted. Before it always did the search in a new window. Now, today, when I click 'search yahoo for', it opens in a tab. I have the 'no tabs' add-on which has always worked great. I may be one of few, but I hate tabs. So, the tabs are at the top of the screen and when I click x in the top right corner I get the dreaded 'You are about to close 3 tabs' 'Are you sure you want to continue'. I put 3, but it could be 2, 3, 4 or whatever. Not sure what happened overnight and nothing shows in Event Viewer' that would cause this. Any ideas or solutions?

I just migrated Firefox from one computer to another and when I type a website in the address bar and press enter nothing happens and when I click on a link after Googling something nothing happens but when I open a private window everything's OK. I tried signing in and signing out and switching accounts and none of that helped.

Hello to whom it may concern: Two days ago my Firefox Browser was updated for my automatically, to 75.0(64-Bit). But today I need to reboot my computer due to things getting slow. Once I rebooted I had noticed when I had opened Outlook Email in my Firefox Browser the "Junk E-mail Folder" had disappeared. I immediately went to my standby browser on 'Edge' and checked to see if things had also changed on my Outlook E-mail account, it was all good nothing missing or changed. I totally only use Firefox Browser it is the only browser I trust and know that protects me(plus Firefox is so much faster). I do hope this issue can be fixed fast, since I do get important e-mails that end up in my Junk e-mail folder I need to have access to. Kindest regards, Milton

Hello all! i have had this niggly problem for a while now. so in the firefox search bar, the hisroty of the websites visited does not render properly it's the same with the firefox OPTIONS page, some text is invisible. you can select and copy and paste it, but can't see it, looks like it's highlighted white-on-white it's the same story for some websites, only on and off sometimes, re-loading the webpage makes it work but you cannot always do that, e.g in the middle of a financial transaction i have tried resetting firefox completely uninstalling/reinstalling nothing works only happens on my windows 7 machine, my ubuntu firefox works fine i am pulling my hair out hehe

would be great to hear any suggestions of how to fix this

All sites except support.mozilla.org and accounts.firefox.com do not work in my main profile. When entering an address or calling from a favorite, the tab remains blank and the loading indicator always works. No site elements (even a title) appear. Even the web panel of my router (LAN) does not load. Others profiles work fine. History is important for me. So I don't want to clean it.

Hi, I would like some help figuring out why the images won't load on certain pages that I follow on Facebook. Most images are loading fine but certain ones (The New Yorker is one example), the images are broken on their posts. I've disabled my ad blockers, disabled the global protections, cleared the cache, cleared data, restarted Firefox, and so far nothing has fixed it. If I open facebook in another browser, like Opera, the images load, so it's something to do with Firefox. What else could it be?

This started sometime in early March - maybe after the latest update, but I think it was earlier than that. Ran a full scan with Norton about 3-15-20, restarted, and the problem seemed to be resolved - until today, 3-23-20. It's not happening with Chrome or IE. I'm old and not very computer-savvy (since leaving tech school 20 years ago). Any suggestions? When I Google for a solution, I get suggestions to download free malware software, which I am loath to do. Why won't Norton 360 take care of it and block it from reinstalling when it tries to come in again?

The website 'https://1-rich-collins.pixels.com/' only shows some images on Firefox 74.0 while I can see all of the images on Microsoft Edge and Tor. I have followed the instructions at 'about:config' which stated 'look for 'browser.display.document_under_use' and then set to 0 but no 0 exists. It is only true or false. It was set to Boolean and when I clicked far right all I could do was click on a double arrow which now won't show Boolean. So I left it at True. I also tried Permissions on Firefox Page Info window, but the command Load Images (if I recall correctly) was not available so I could not click on a checkmark.

I've spoken with the website manager, whom I've known for years and she tells me nothing is wrong with the site, which is using fineartamerica.com as the domain. pixels is the subdomain if I understand her correctly. And at the fine art website all of my images display:https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/1-rich-collins


Let me know if I can provide any more details, or I've missed or mistakenly added anything, thanks Rich


A week or two ago I Refreshed Firefox 74.0 and it worked. But the next time I reopened it it wasn't working again.

I have the Norton Password Manager (PWM) extension installed. When I want to log in to any protected site for which I have already stored the login info, I have to log in to my Norton account before I can log in to the PWM itself.* The box for that has a checkbox "Remember me on this device," which I leave checked, but if I close Firefox and open it again, the box pops up exactly as before, whereas on Chrome, the login info is entered already. I have tried restoring Firefox to its default configuration and entering the Norton login info on both the logins page and on the cookie exceptions page, but nothing works. What's up?

  • This seems to be a relatively new requirement by Norton, which I already explored in another thread.
