Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Firefox has been saving images from some sites as webp instead of JPG for a long time. There have been repeated threads on this subject which get locked and then pushed into the long grass.

Sure, I could botch a solution by installing an add-on to convert them, or I could use something like XnView (which I do, periodically, and in bulk) after the save event has happened, or I can edit about:info to tell Firefox not to accept webp - but this breaks functionality for some sites (like eBay), but I have found that in the end I have had to start switching to Microsoft Edge to do my browsing for a number of sites because Mozilla Firefox are ignoring repeated user requests to provide a simple option to STOP doing this.

I don't want to save any files as webp - save them as PNG if you like, or jpg, but I use an ancient copy (v3.24) of ACDsee (from the days of Windows 98) for my image browsing, sorting, viewing etc because it is perfect, blisteringly quick, has no extra editing or other functionality which I don't need or want, and it doesn't bloat up anywhere with thumbnail files... but sadly webp didn't exist back then so it doesn't support it. I have used a number of much more up to date browser-viewers, but there is nothing can touch this OLD version of ACDsee for basically brilliant design.

I'm not changing my image viewer. It's non-negotiable.

I WILL however change my web browser if I have to, if the developers of the browser continually kick into the long grass to lock, hide away and pretend there's isn't an issue which has been repeatedly flagged as an annoyance for so many users.

I have been using one form or other of 'Mozilla' family of browsers since the days of Quarterdeck Mosaic. I don't particularly want to switch my loyalty, especially to Microsoft, but if they are listening to what customers want and providing it, and Mozilla are not, what else is there to do ?

I am a retired systems developer. I cannot envisage this being SUCH a big ask.

Modern software treats its users like idiots and takes away control, doing everything it's assumes on their behalf that they will want.

It is not difficult to provide an option within settings for when saving webp files to save as webp, png or jpg with conversion if necessary. All you need to do is hear the screams and respond. :)

Hello,

I am wondering it this is possible - I have a Windows 10 laptop that needs to be upgraded to V202H and I am told that the upgrade will probably delete all of my current programs and settings - including my Firefox install and all bookmarks. To help recover from that, I wanted to know if it would be possible to set up an alternate Firefox in a not often used local account on my Windows 7 laptop and then sync the two so that after the upgrade, I can download Firefox again onto the Win 10 laptop and then sync it back so that I can get all of my bookmarks and settings for FF back onto the Win 10 laptop.

I don't want to sync it with the Firefox that I use in my regular Win 7 user account since that has a separate set of bookmarks and settings that I wouldn't want to change. I just wanted a way to "hold" all of the Win 10 Firefox stuff and "reinstall" it, and had thought that sync might be a way to do that.

If that won't work, is there a way to transfer the entire FF profile over to a new install on that laptop once it is upgraded?

Thanks for any help! Much appreciated!

Recently, a kind volunteer helped me resolve a technical problem I was having with eBay. I have only one start up on my computer now, which is my VPN I have disabled all my Add-ons. I exited out of Firefox, restarted my computer and went directly to ebay and had no trouble signing in or using the site. Yay! I thought it was all fixed. I still wanted to use some very important (to me) add-ons like Ghosterly, and a couple others, which I have had for approximately a year with no problem on ebay. I enable 3 of my favorite addons. I went back to ebay. And, now I can't sign in. They say the password doesn't match. I know that it is correct because I have it written down. When I tried many times, they kept making be "bot verify" When I tried to reset my password, they said I had to chat with someone. I am unable to chat because they say I might have disabled java script. I don't know where to look to see it I have done that. Having a "Senior Moment" here............

....also starting to get frustrated........... grrrrrrr..... I wanted to try to turn on one addon at a time, to see which might be the troublemaker, but never got the chance.

Any thoughts??

I am Getting both "incorrect password" and "your email was returned" errors

I know the password is correct as I can still use it to log in (including logging into these forums) though I am getting this error when trying to create a recovery key or reset my password

For the "your email was returned" error, the email address is typed correctly in my account and I have gotten confirmation emails from FireFox as recently as 2 days ago. I get this error when trying to sign in to sync the Multi-Account Containers addon, as well as when trying to use "forgot password" to get a reset link.

I'm not sure how to proceed with these errors as each issue is preventing me from resolving them on my own.

At one point while I was getting the incorrect password error I got a message that my account is locked and an email would be sent to me for confirmation...though of course that also got "your email was returned"

cześć, Posiadam OS Big Sur Mac Mini i mam pytanie, dlaczego na tym komputerze nie działa zapamiętywanie otwartych kart (przywracanie sesji)? Zaznaczyłam w opcjach: przywracanie poprzednich sesji, ale to nie działa. Nie rozumiem tego. Jak miałam Windowsa, to nigdy nie było z tym problemu. A pracuje przy kilkudziesięciu otwartych kartach i nie wyobrażam sobie, żebym miała je za każdym razem otwierać pojedynczo... Z jednej grupy wsparcia Apple dostałam informacje, że Mac ma swoją przeglądarkę: Safarii i żebym jej zaczęłam używać. Ale ja nie chcę innej przeglądarki. Mam za dużo zapamiętanych kart, żeby je przenosić i nie chcę uczyć się kolejnej aplikacji. Dodatkowo powiedziano mi, że Mac nie lubi innych oprogramowań niż swoje. Idąc tym torem, nie można by używać Photoshopa, Adobe PDF, i wiele wiele innych aplikacji, bo Mac ich nie wyprodukował... To jakiś absurd! Proszę o pomoc, jak otwierać przeglądarkę z kartami z poprzedniej sesji?

Not sure if I chose the correct topic above, but here goes. It is my first time here.

recently, after using the same browser and same site, under the same log in for over 15 years, the pages freeze and I can't do any thing but wait until the error message pops up saying that "a webpage is slowing down your browser, do you want to: "Stop it" or "Wait" I click stop it and then wait a few seconds and I can see the screen glitch and then I can click on something and it will finally work. But, when I try to click on something else the same thing happens over and over again. I have discussed this with the chat agents, but they were no help. Someone from ebay called me after I asked them to and I explained the problem, and that I had cleared my browser cache, cookies, browsing history and it still gives the same error message and still freezes. I do NOT have this problem on any other website or platform. The ebay agent on the phone suggested that I try a different browser as he had no way to diagnose my problem. I asked "If the problem doesn't happen on any other site, how would it be caused by my browser?" He said, he was merely suggesting that as a process of elimination. I started to download another browser today, as this has been going on for far too long, probably two weeks now. Thank you for any suggestions you might have. Taylor

April 10, 2021 Hello, I created my GMAIL account on Mozilla (last version 78.9.1 (32 bits)).

When I try to send a mail I receive error messages (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG").

When I cancel these messages, a page opens (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '02.JPG").

When I validate my Gmail account address (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '03'.JPG"), the previous page is displayed again. It is impossible for me to validate and enter my password.

If I send a message from another account, the message goes out well, it is not mentioned as undelivered but it is not displayed in the 'Gmail incoming mail' and I cannot force the reception of messages.

When I want to leave Gmail, I get this message "ERROR TO QUIT GMAIL.JPG". I waited 2 hours without success. When I connect to Gmail via the Internet, I find the message sent by another account in my incoming mail.

The image "Param IMAP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" shows my IMAP settings in Mozilla. The image "Param SMTP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" shows my SMTP settings in Mozilla.

How to fix this problem? Thanks in advance. for your cooperation. ONE WHO KNOWS IS BETTER THAN TEN WHO ARE LOOKING. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Le 10 avril 2021 Bonjour, J'ai créé mon compte GMAIL sur Mozilla (dernière version 78.9.1 (32 bits)).

Lorsque j'essaie d'envoyer un mail je reçois des messages d'erreurs (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG").

Lorsque j'annule ces messages, une page s'ouvre (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 02.JPG").

Lorsque je valide mon adresse de compte Gmail (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '03'.JPG"), la page précédente s"affiche à nouveau. Il m'est impossible de valider et de pouvoir entrer mon mot de passe.

Si j'envoie un message depuis un autre compte, le message part bien, n'est pas mentionné comme non délivré mais ne s'affiche pas dans le 'Courrier entrant de Gmail' et je ne peux pas forcer la réception de messages.

Lorsque je veux quitter Gmail, je reçois ce message "ERROR TO QUIT GMAIL.JPG". J'ai attendu 2 heures sans succès.

Lorsque je me connecte sur Gmail via Internet, je retrouve le message envoyé par un autre compte dans mon courrier reçu.

L'image "Param IMAP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" indique mes paramètres IMAP dans Mozilla. L'image "Param SMTP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" indique mes paramètres SMTP dans Mozilla.

Comment régler ce problème ?

I am getting a certification issue when trying to visit 2 specific sites which are some of the most visited sites in the web: https://www.google.com and https://www.youtube.com

The error it shows when trying to visit these 2 pages, is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I have tried to troubleshoot it and follow the solutions recommended at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/error-codes-secure-websites#w_the-error-occurs-on-multiple-secure-sites

however none of the solutions described in this guide worked to solve my problem.

In that guide, one of the suggested solutions is to scan my system for any malware. I used the following: Windows Defender Maleware Bytes AntiMalware Karpersky TDSSkiller however the results are all clean.

In the guide, it suggested that I check the clock as well. The system clock however is synchronized.

Last, I have resetted Firefox Profile but this didnt fix the issue either.

I shall note that the issue appeared yesterday and so far nothing helped fixing it. Not even the system restarts.

The issue about visiting these two sites, is limited only to Firefox.

I can access https://www.google.com and https://www.youtube.com without problems using Google Chrome and the Opera Browser.

Also, Google Mail and Google Translate work fine on Firefox. These two sites can be accessed with Firefox without causing any SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER errors.
