I can't stand Microsoft Edge. It's a CPU and memory hog. However, I must resort to using it when I watch a video from VUDU on any of my workstations. According to the fine folks at VUDU, Firefox is not supported in HDX or 1080i mode when using the VUDU site. According to the info that shows when you launch VUDU on a Windows device (in this case, Windows 10 or Windows 11) using Firefox, you get a message that the video is only supported in SD or 720 dpi mode. To get anything above SD mode, you have to use Microsoft Edge. Is there a developmental issue preventing such use or is this a limitation forced on Firefox users because Microsoft does want you using anything but Edge?

It's just a bit frustrated to have to use MS Edge instead of my default browser, Firefox. For the record, I just checked to be sure. There's a marked difference in resolution between Firefox and Edge on the same video.

Firefox recently upgraded on my desktop. I ONLY use Firefox - do not want Google, Edge, Etc. I can get into all of my on-line accounts with the exception of my Bank Account. I do not get a message about browser - but if I click SIGN-IN, it just sits there. I called my Bank...told me I have to use Google, Chrome or Edge - DO NOT WANT TO USE ANY OF THOSE. I had no issue signing in until it upgraded. PLEASE tell me how to fix this - I have cleared my Cache and History, etc. Nothing works. Please HELP!!! Do not want to use another browser to access this account - do not feel safe with any of them - why I use Firefox. Thank you.

I use Ajatix drop down menus in my website https://luresnreels.com. My .css and .js files in my website don't function apparently. The drop down menus do not work in Firefox, but do work in Chrome and Edge. Looks like it's not working on my iPhone also. I have a new desktop computer with Windows 11 home edition. Ajatix used to work fine on my old Windows 10 computer. What to do? Thanks

How do I tell Firefox what to do when I click on a link to a file (PDF, JPEG, Word, etc.). I want to have the options of either opening the file or saving it to a specific folder that I choose. I am 87 years old and somewhat computer-savvy, but please give me geezer-friendly instructions, step-by-step and click-by-click. Windows 10 and Firefox 101.

What happens now when I click on such a link is this: My only option is to save it -- and Firefox has chosen (apparently at random) a folder to save it to.

Firefox Autofilling Form

Whenever I go to fill out a specific form on a specific website for my job, when I load the page, the form is already filled out with a previous (and the same) form I had done last week. I have tried logging out of my Firefox account but that did not solve it. I have messed with every possible browser history, auto-fill, and saved addresses option possible. It is literally just this one form. I have no idea why it keeps pulling up one person's information and no one else. It's getting really annoying to have to go through and delete the information so I can put in new information. Using the forced reload command does not work wither. If anyone has any ideas as to how I can fix this, I would really appreciate it.

(My work computer runs Windows 10 if that is important to know).

Hello,

The next message/previous message arrows that appear at the top of an open email in Hotmail.com is being blocked by Firefox. I checked Hotmail through another browser and they are not blocked. I tried refreshing Firefox and they were still blocked. I've opened Firefox without add-ons and they are still blocked. I'm at a loss as to how to get them back. They were there last week and then vanished only to come back on Friday and vanish again while I was reading emails. From time to time Firefox also blocks images in Hotmail and I just have to wait and eventually they return. I'm at a loss as to understand why these things are happening so frequently with Firefox and Hotmail.

Please help return Hotmail to the way it was before the last update.

Thanks,

Brian Himes

There is a feature of a website I use that does not work in my Android Firefox. The support guy in that website has told me that it happens because Firefox has not added a Clipboard API required for that feature. Are you planning to add it?

The website is acim.org/acim and the feature is making visual quotes. It works with Chrome as you can see in the attached screenshot. It's just that I would like to stick with Firefox no matter what I'm doing.

Thank you for your attention.

I often get the notification: Thunderbird can't update to the latest version to update download the latest version. But when I go to About, it says Thunderbird is up to date - I have 91.9.0 and it is set ti auto-update.

Why am I getting this message if Thunderbird is up to date?

I am afraid to download and install because I do not want to lose email or settings.

I have seen the other threads about this, but it does not help.

How can I be rid of this annoyance? The "latest copy" to download is what I'm already running! This began with my update to version 91.10.0 from the previous version.

I cannot find the correct search terms to find what I am looking for and do not know if Thunderbird has this option or if there is an add-on.

Outlook (which I am in the process of replacing) has the ability to search an email account for “Messages in this Conversation” (see attached image.) It will then return a list of all common emails for the conversation as well as the folder it is locate in (see attached image.)

Can Thunderbird search in such a way? What type of search is this?

Thank you in advance

When I open websites with embedded Instagram or TikTok videos there is a play icon in the embedded video, but when tapping the play icon the video will not play. My current solution is to copy the url and paste it into chrome where the videos play just fine, but I'd rather they played in Firefox. Does anyone have a solution for this?
