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 ?

Hi, thanks for clicking the post.

I have become very interested in the Logitech Craft keyboard. It has a wheel at the top left that has different functionality for different applications.

What I would want it to do is to be used as a simple scroll up/down in Firefox and other web browsers.

I have asked the community at Logitech's website and was told by a dude there that the Crown wheel in fact cannot be used as a simple scroll. Which seems to me like a major blunder as it is to me the first obvious thing for a wheel.

My question is if the information I got was incorrect. But if not, then I would very much appreciate if anyone here could tell me if there's any other way to get it, a simple scroll using the Crown wheel, working for Firefox.

Many thanks! Regards / B

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

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!

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.

Playing youtube video on Firefox has become a hazard. The power consumption sharply rises whenever a video is plying AND (specifically) when the this youtube tab is the one open (current). As soon as I move to another tab and let the video continue playing this problem disappears and resource consumption looks normal. Then if I go back to the youtube tab then it spikes again sharply.

It has been like this for a week or couple of days now.
