Hi,

There is a problem with mozilla that keeps happening and it only does on Youtube. Whenever I watch a Youtube video and then I try to search something else above in the search bar and go for it, the video itself is still playing while the background is populated by the search I did. So basically the video covers most of the search results from the Youtube, i cannot exit the video itself, I just have to make a new tab every time to escape this 'bug'. (hope this was clear for you, sorry if not)

Any tips would be appreciated

YouTube can play videos and load the comment section, but the side bar randomly disappears and when it disappears, it's blank and uninteractable with. When I try to load my profile, check notifications, or share a video, it ends up infinitely loading. Clicking the add to playlist button is unresponsive; when it's clicked, it doesn't work. Tried to delete a playlist, showed the prompt to delete the playlist and when clicked, did not delete the playlist.

Current extensions are uBlock Origin, Dark Reader, and Kapersky Password Manager. Tried deleting cookies, cache, and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox.

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Hi all,

Firefox version 79.0 does not allot me to use the keyboard shortcut ctrl + \ with 1Password extension or 1PasswordX add on.

I originally contacted 1Password about this and they say it is an issue with Firefox and that i will just have to use a different key combination.

Is there any help that anyone can offer on this?

More than twice a day, I have to close out Firefox, open taskmanager, and delete firefox processes. After doing that, my computer still won't work properly, so I run glary utilities and find 8000 tracks, 1gig of temp files. After cleaning that, the computer still does not work properly, so I have to reboot. I have 79.0 (64 bit).

I entered %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

I found two ,default files. Both had parent.lock. One .default file is simply ,default The other is ,default-1473830175463

What is going on and how to I fix the constant messup of firefox?

Help is much appreciated, frustrated.

Hey! I'm using Firefox currently on Mac. I've been using the Office web apps regularly, but a couple of days ago, while trying to edit an excel document, I got an Out of Memory error message. I tried to solve it using Memory Diag, but apparently my laptop wasn't out of RAM. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the problem is still there.

Today was about the 3rd or 4th time in the last few months that I boot up the PC and find that the Firefox exe has disappeared. So frustrating. Yes I can and do re-install, but it's 30-45 mins each time. Does anyone know what might be causing this. I am very careful with downloads and use only licensed software. Could it be the VIPRE anti-virus/firewall? Running on Windows 10 - everything is up to date and usually very stable.

I have html files on my website that, for some reason, when Firefox prints them to PDF it prints the text as images instead of text... except text that is in italics, which it prints as text just fine. I have no idea what the heck is going on here. The same files print fine from other browsers. The file I'm testing is here: https://universaltheosophy.com/hpb/transactions.html

Here's an example PDF printed from the above html file: https://universaltheosophy.com/hpb/transactions-text-print-firefox.pdf

Notice on the 2nd page, only the italic text is printed as text.

Any help with this will be much appreciated!

Edit: had a friend test print this in Firefox on a Mac and the PDF came out proper. I'm on a PC, Win 10.
