Some Youtube videos say "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. "

and Amazon Prime "Video Unavailable" is also fixed by this.

I fixed this by installing FFMPEG which installs libavcodec.so.58

DRM Playback is enabled under preferences.

Hello, I’ve recently done a factory reset on my PC and when signing in to Firefox my bookmarks were gone. I’ve looked in to it and it says that Firefox auto backup my bookmarks but I can’t find them in the tab where they should be. Is there any way I can obtain them back?

On launching Firefox, none of the extensions work. uBlock Origin does nothing, LastPass prompts me to acknowledge their privacy policy then login, Firefox logs out of my user account, the containers tab does nothing (although this might be related to not being logged in). These are the only services I use. Everything works if I take the time to set them back up (except uBlock Origin).

Strangely enough, reddit.com will not load, and this is the only website I have had problems with. When prompted, the address bar ignores it, not even trying to load the site, completely blank page without an error.

Everything works perfectly fine (including uBlock Origin) in private browsing mode.

This started happening a few days ago. Since then I have done a clean install of windows (which was needed anyways) but to no avail. It is probably something stupid I managed to mess up in Firefox, although I would have no idea what that would be as I haven't changed anything advanced since the clean install.

I am completely dumb-founded. Any help would be appreciated.

I bought a new computer. I read about how to transfer over your profile. On my old computer I located the folder, and went up one level as it said. I had 2 files there, not 1 .I saved these files. I installed firefox on my new computer and followed the same steps to locate the folder. It also had 2 files, with different names. I STUPIDLY deleted these two files and put in the two I had copied from my old compter. Turned offirefox and turned it back on. It would notopen because it said it couldnot locate my profile folder. I uninstalled Firefox, and reinstalled it. I still get the same error.

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I thought uninstalling and reinstalling it would solve the first part of the program but as of now, I have no Firefox.

Any suggestions from anyone.

I've been using Firefox since Netscape ended and i always enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Firefox 72 is utterly hideous. It is the worst and most unstable browser i ever tested -- it's extremely slow, it doesn't even work with hardware acceleration, it's not compatible with most sites i access and it crashes a lot. Anyway I already reinstalled the version 71, which continues to work flawless and I don't plan to ever use auto updates again. The problem is that every single day Firefox tries to update to the horrible 72 version, and every day I have reject it manually.

I'm looking for a way to permanently block future Firefox updates, without asking me for it again. Any ideas?

When it became version 78.0.2, the menu to close the tab on the right side was gone and I was very confused. As a result, it was pushed into the submenu. I've been using Firefox because it has a menu to close the tab on the right, but if I can't immediately access this feature, I should consider switching browsers. Please move this menu from sub to main as soon as possible.

About 2 updates back a strange problem started occurring; when I open firefox my homepage no longer loads https://yahoo.com, instead i'm greeted with a blank / empty page. Here are some detailed observations about this problem, other than it being super annoying.

- open firefox just as I have for years to see yahoo, nope, it's a blank screen - If I manually click the Home button, yahoo loads fine at that point. - If I open a 2nd firefox browser window, yahoo loads fine. - If I close firefox and open a fresh window again, blank screen.

I've started with add-ons disable - no change I've refreshed firefox - no change I've uninstalled and re-installed - no change

Interesting though if I open Privacy -> Cookies and Site Data -> Manage Data... and delete my yahoo cookie, the homepage loads ok ONCE the first time only. if I close and re-open, I again get the blank screen. The cookie is back. If I "Manage Permissions..." and block yahoo from creating a cookie, it consistently loads on first run, but then I'm constantly hit with yahoo first run banners, etc. that do nothing because each time it loads it has no cookie.

I'm really interested if this is a firefox issue, or a yahoo issue. This problem never happened until firefox pushed an update a month or two ago, I can use any other browser and load yahoo.com with no problem whatsoever.

Can someone please tell me what is happening????????????????? It's a homepage. Really it can't be that difficult to solve.

Hi, I'm on an updated Arch Linux system.

Something went wrong (maybe testing audio settings with JACK and PulseAudio alternative 'apulse') and Firefox hanged and had to be killed (probably '$ killall -s SIGINT firefox' or something similar).

From that moment I couldn't start again Firefox with my profile. But any other profile works fine.

I've got this:

``` $ killall -s SIGINT firefox $ Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. [GFX1-]: Receive IPC close with reason=AbnormalShutdown Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error.

$ firefox ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 2087 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ```

Already tried --safe-mode but without success. Keeps crashing.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

I think I have successfully downloaded DeepSleep and opened the tar file using 7-zip.

I cannot figure out how to start it, or if will start at all.

The comments I see on the web seem to indicate that is not compatible with Windows. but the documentation says it is?

The app I have downloaded and untared does not seem to open. It does not show in my Control Panels apps list.

What I am seeing on the web is that it is a very complicated install and requires other modules, like python?

Is there some way a novice can get this going easily?

Thanks

Please change back the URL bar ever since it was added a month ago or whenever it has been SO annoying. I'm about to change browsers because I cannot stand it anymore. It is visually unattractive and obnoxious looking.

Also, highlighted text in it is a blue font color with no highlight. Why is this different from every other Windows program?? It is not easy to tell that text is highlighted. It should be HIGHLIGHTED blue with a white font color.
