Hello,

i have a problem with Firefox ESR and the management Webinterface of a telefon system (Auerswald COMpact5200R). The Website works with Edge, Chrome, IE and normal Firefox Releases - but not with the ESR Releases for example 91.2.0esr or 91.1.0esr.

When i open the website it asks for credentials. Then there is a button (think its a new frame), if i click this, it ask again for credentials (if you want to get admin rights). Normal users doesnt have these rights, so they cancel the dialog and get their configuration functions.

If i do this with Firefox ESR - the second popop for credentials show up - and if i cancel it, the frame/website doesnt load further.

I tried different settings for SameSite cookies or network.auth.allow-subresource-auth but (same settings than in normal Firefox releases) it doenst work. Sorry, but i cannot provide a public link for testing to the website, because its an internal management Interface.

What can i check next to get it work again?

Regards, Michael

Hi,

It seems that somehow DRM has stopped working in Firefox: as of this morning, I get the message to enable DRM on spotify, netflix and other sites - enabling DRM only yields the message "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio on this site...".

Using Firefox v93 on Manjaro 21.1.6, all up to date

I've tried (in order):

  • made sure "play DRM controlled content" is enabled
  • restarted browser in safe mode
  • refreshed my profile
  • uninstalled Firefox, removed profile folder, reinstalled Firefox
  • tested on a Windows VM with the newest version of Firefox -> works
  • installed the Spotify player as app (snap package) -> works
  • installed Vivaldi browser and DRM content works there too

I don't understand what could have changed - have had no issues when I updated firefox to the latest version a few days ago and changed nothing last night. Simply logged back in today and started seeing this problem.

Any ideas?

Font looks really ugly in this site: : https://yle.fi/uutiset/tuoreimmat In Opera instead font in the same site looks smooth and normal. I use ClearType and never before had such problem. Just shifted back to Firefox from Opera, because updated Opera has Privacy error notifications on too many sites and can't even get to some sites. Now Firefox looks so ugly. I suppose I'll go back to old Opera and never update anymore. Even old Firefox worked fine.

Can't play videos from streaming sites with drm, like netflix

Starting a few weeks ago firefox refuses to play video from netflix and prime video. I've googled a bit, but nothing worked. Using firefox 93.0 on windows 10, here is what I tried so far (not necessarily in that order):

  • Refresh page
  • Restart PC
  • clear cache
  • disable extensions
  • run in troubleshoot mode
  • refresh firefox profile
  • try a new firefox profile
  • reinstall firefox
  • checked whether the drm box is checked/checked and unchecked it a few times
  • reinstalled widevine
  • checked whether privacy.resistFingerprinting is false, since someone apparently had a netflix error related to that setting

Probably forgot some. Also works fine on other browsers, just thought it was odd.

Here is what the errors in the debugger say:

on prime video:

When I click in the URL search bar, a list of the most common sites appears, with one glaring omission, eBay!

All my other frequent website appear, like bbc.co.uk and youtube.com and scan.co.uk etc etc, but ebay.co.uk is always missing despite my visiting the site at least 3 times a day.

Any ideas as to why please?

Cheers, John.

Yesterday morning all was well. As my usual custom I opened my Microsoft Outlook, checked email and went on with my day. Usually I leave that tab open, but for some reason it got closed. About two hours later I tried to open it again and it will not load, nor let me login to my Microsoft365 business account. I contacted Microsoft and spent two hours on the phone with them trying everything to get this to work. What we discovered: Outlook online opens fine with every other browser, and if I do a private browsing page in Firefox it opens. I've changed nothing in my Firefox settings for many months, but suddenly something is interfering with my ability to get into my email. This, in combination with how slooooooooow Firefox has been over the last month or so is tempting to completely switch to a different browser. Not what I want to do, but it's terribly annoying to not be able to get in my email without having two browsers open at the same time. Please tell me this is in the works to be fixed!

The latest update added a new warning to the "Forget About This Site" feature. I use this sometimes, and when I saw this warning for the first time yesterday, I knew it was going to be a pain in the arse. I understand it's useful to some people, but I do not want to see it every time. How do I disable this warning?

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.
