There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I have a website with SSL. When I open it by simply www.sitename, FF automatically uses https and extends this to all sub-pages. When I open sub-pages directly, i.e. www.sitename/pagename, FF uses http and shows the insecure icon. If I open sub-pages with https://sitename/pagename, FF shows them as secure. Chrome and Edge automatically use https for sub-pages opened directly by www.sitename/pagename. Why is FF inconsistent in this way?

Hello, Today I downloaded the offline version of MDN for HTML from Kapeli. I extracted it and ran it with Firefox but error appeared, it was saying: "Application rendering error. An unhandled error occurred in the application. We apologize for the inconvenience!" after that I opened it with Edge and everything was working just fine. I tried to reset Firefox, but this didn't work either. Can you help me with this problem, I would be grateful.

I use a couple of different browsers, Firefox and Brave. I have several profiles set up in Firefox depending on specific sites or groups of sites that I can open individually or together simultaneously. One of these I set up for a recipe management site I use https://recipesage.com. I set up a profile for recipesage and then go to the site, log in and save that page as the default. I then set up a .desktop script in my ~/.local/share/applications folder (I use Ubuntu as my OS of choice) to open that profile along with an image for recipe sage so I can save the "application" to my launcher separate from the regular Firefox icon. It worked fine that way for years until just recently. it no longer works. I deleted and recreated the profile, open it, set the default page, close firefox and restart it and it just spins, never loads the page. If I set the default to the default firefox page and then go to the site manually it works but not if I save it as the default. I have had to switch to using Brave instead which is fine but kind of sad that I can't use Firefox any longer. Any ideas why it all of a sudden broke?

When I click on some email links usually in emails from retail businesses they will not open correctly in Firefox. However, if I copy and paste the URL into Chrome or Edge, they open just fine.

For example, this marketing URL from Best Buy, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__click.emailinfo2.bestbuy.com_-3Fqs-3D2c6fa7baf73a68394f3ef56f26a5ad4a91bf0d9f686f2b0ed29326c0b3102d71d175b2209e2d83ca9eb0a1c1c7f163459f482c262ab2f4b26e58d62e7e4ef834&d=DwMDaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=9BjfmubiD4w2fwyJ_mt0mXwRdrhPtBnR3BAlDr2MwcQ&m=xvBFPqHCMmKNSkl4SAZiIQPLiCSPMVea48hGa-JthqE&s=kL922_I7zxhJzD_n1NTyMLI41WY789i3-OLoyhAoSLE&e=

results in the the Best Buy message, "We’re sorry, something went wrong. You can use our search bar or pick a category below. If you typed in a URL, check it for errors."

However, the link works just fine in Chrome and Edge. This problem seems to have surfaced about a month ago. Is there some Firefox setting that I'm overlooking that is causing this?

Thanks

I have a bookmark to an internal site I use for work when on VPN that used to work until just a few days ago. It's on my bookmark toolbar and the link to get to it is formatted like this:

http://example/example.php

However, as of a few days ago when I click the bookmark Firefox automatically converts this to: www.example.com/example.php

Which fails to load because it's not the correct address.

This bookmark works in all other browsers I've tried (IE, chrome, edge) it's only firefox changing the URL this way. I also cannot manually enter the address because it also gets changed each time.

I prefer using firefox and don't want to change to a different browser for work. Is there a way I can stop firefox from changing the URL? This occurs in both regular firefox 83.0 (64-bit) and nightly 85.0a1 (2020-11-20) (64-bit).

Attached images are firefox's bookmark and end result URL, and the other one is chrome's.

Chrome correctly loads http://example/exampl.php and firefox changes it to http://www.example.com/example.php

Hi, every time I'm on Youtube, Firefox loads the page 2 times and when I try to go back o the previous page it reloads the current: For example I play video #1, then I click in another video it opens the video #2 page, if I click the back page button even without playing video #2 it reloads video #2 page.

The second problem with Youtube is the audio: sometimes when playing a video suddenly on background it restart the audio of the video and it plays together, and if I pause the video the "first audio" stop but the second keeps going.

Already tried the fix audio solution but nothing changed, also cleared cache etc....

Hey all, I've encountered a strange behavior with Firefox 83 under macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 where if I have desktop notifications enabled for YouTube enabled, I'll get duplicate notifications. For example, If I have one notification waiting from YouTube when launching Firefox, I'll see it twice when opening notification center. This doesn't happen, if Firefox is running and notifications come in, and it only happens with YouTube.

Also, This didn't seem to be a problem on Firefox 82.0.3 when I initially upgraded to Big Sur. It seems to have started with version 83.

I have completely deleted all firefox data and settings, and started fresh to confirm it wasn't corrupted settings, and it doesn't appear to be. I also asked about this in #Firefox on freenode, but after a couple hours of waiting never got an answer: so trying here today.

I've also searched, and no one else seems to have reported this issue, other than me. Is this a known issue, or am I the first? Also, is there anything I can do outside waiting for a firefox update / big sure updates? For now, I have disabled desktop notifications in YouTube settings as that's the only problem site I'm experiencing. This seems to be a firefox, and Youtube specific issue, as the latest version of Chrome is also set to deliver me notifications, and those work correctly, as well as do all other notifications, both system, and app.

If there is anything I can do to resolve this, please let me know.

Thanks

The ffmpeg wasm library does not work on firefox. I am developing a video editing app using ffmpeg wasm (version 0.9.5). But I am not able to run it in firefox (version 83, Linux Mint 20 Ulyana) Same thing runs perfectly fine in chromium. I googled and the general consensus says firefox does not support latest ffmpeg library features. I have attached a screenshot of browser console.log for clarity on the issue. I checked the browser config and the Shared ArrayBuffer value is set to true.

The browser simply refuses to save such personal preferences anymore, up until the last update this hasn't been an issue. Before i updated youtube would remember to use dark mode and disable autoplay without fail, now i have to reset these preferences every time i open a new youtube tab. When i open a new tab on youtube the screen starts as if it were in dark mode and then smash-cuts to light mode with autoplay as soon as the video and recommended thumbnails load up. This doesn't happen on Chrome, and when i set my system preferences in the windows options menu it does default to dark mode (but i really hate the systemwide dark mode there).

I could really use some help here if anyone is able to, half of my browsing youtube is in the dead of night and i really don't need the added eye strain every time i want to watch a new video outside of my queue.
