Firefox 45.0b3 doesnt show embedded youtube videos on websites. But it shows videos on Youtube website with no problem. It says 'Connection is not secure' for sites like Gizmodo and Slashfilm where embedded youtubes are not showing; But I can see Vimeo videos on those sites.

Embedded youtube videos are playing on Google Chrome and Safari.

Please give me some solution to fix this problem. Thanks in advance, Jay

I upgraded from Windows 7 (where FF worked fine) to Windows 8.1 a few months ago. After the upgrade FF stopped functioning well enough for me to use. I switched over to Chrome/Opera but I'm tired of those and want to come back to FF but am finding it very hard. The issues are

- I can't copy/cut anything via either Ctrl+C or the context menu. The context menu rarely will show Copy/Cut/Paste and if they are shown they do nothing. One time I pressed crtl+C a lot ina row and Copy worked for that session but when I restarted the browser it stopped working again. 

These may or may not be related the copy/cut issue but certainly are not working as well.

-  Sometimes the context menu will show every possible menu item ever available in the OS. I'll right click and I need to scroll and scroll to find copy/paste. They still don't work when I find them.
- I can't highlight text and have the context menu show the "search google" button. Nor can I take that highlighted text and drag it to the URL bar/search bar.
- If a video is playing (youtube/comedy central...) and I drag that tab out to make a new window this creates a blank "New Tab" in the original window and make it look like the video tab is moved to a new window but the video won't play any more. Nor can I stop it. and I can't close that tab by right clicking. But I can Ctrl+W it but that doesn't stop the audio. The audio will continue until I close FF entirely.
- Middle click used to not work but now usually works. i.e I used to not be able to close tabs or open links in new windows with middle click. But FF 28 seemed to fix that. Again mayeb/maybe not related.

I'm currently running FF 29 but these issues were all present for the past ~4 versions at least (whatever was out last fall). I use FF sync and everything works fine on all my synced devices which run W7. This is the only computer i have W8.1 on so I can't test another 8.1 setup. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times but I don't think I've removed all my personal setting from the computer. I have some extensions (Adblock plus 2.5.1, All-in-one genstures 0.26, Rainbow 1.6, Smartest Bookmarks bar 1.11, Stumbleupon and TiddlyWiki 1.0alpha18). These are all also synced on my other computers.

Any ideas?

I am using Video Download Helper with companion app, when downloading videos, the DownloadHelper will uses only one process of Firefox with very high CPU and memory usage. . Ans cause it does not take advantage of all the CPU cores it is very slow, and uses high memory for that process and will make all tabs in Firefox slow.

It seems that this process is the core process for Firefox, although it is a sub-process. It is the process that almost doesn't uses GPU memory.

When finished, if I killed this Firefox process to clean memory, cause it will just accumulate the memory in that specific process, all the tabs in the Firefox will crash and can't be refreshed, until I close Firefox and open it again.

Usually when I kill a Firefox process that is not responding, it will crash a few tabs and they can be refreshed after that.

Is there anyway that can make the companion app uses all processes for Firefox, so it will distribute the CPU usage to all cores, and if used a high memory it will be distribute the memory to all process and will be easier to clean.

By comparison, Control-F did work in the IE browser. At least that's what happened to me on the other laptop, on some forums. Just now i tried it on gardenweb, and it functioned OK.

But for a fact, it sometimes glitches. The proof is, that I'd tried Control-F in Forum XYZ, in Firfox, and it failed to work. Then immediately opened IE, and tried Control-F in Forum XYZ, and it worked perfectly.

I use google as startpage. I only use Google and potentially wiki as search engines, yahoo is not even to be found in the list. I have no addons or what ever that I know of that use Yahoo, neither have I installed anything that uses it.

Yet since a few days Yahoo has replaced my standard search engine (google) whenever I type in a search in the top-right textbox.

I've checked all settings and nothing has changed. Google is my standard searchengine still. In the list with search engines, there is no yahoo to be found.

So how the f... is yahoo being used as the search engine when I type something in?

It's even worse. This morning I was behind the PC and performed some google searches. I leave the PC for a few hours, come back and do a search... and suddenly Yahoo is my search engine without me having changed anything in the meantime? WTF?

What is causing it and how can I get rid of the disgusting Yahoo search that I absolutely hate?

I work with HTML website themes daily. I use the firefox browser for all of my design work and I have recently noticed that firefox does not show web icons such as font awesome or any other web icons. The web icons are properly coded into the theme and they show up fine in all other browsers (chrome, edge, explorer, safari).

I did some research on it and I did find this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS but I don't know if that has anything at all to do with it or not.

If the problem is due to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) then how would I fix that issue as the fonts are being served directly from the theme files?

Thank you

I'm getting this odd error with the standard install of FF since the last few updates every time I try to load FF (even starting up with a blank page) or open a new tab. Tried a fresh profile .. same result. Completely uninstalled FF & deleted the existing profile, then installed again ... ditto. Ran in FF safe mode .. ditto. Disabled hardware acceleration .. ditto. Scanned for nasties (ESET) .. nothing. Installed the latest portable version .. worked fine. Copied the old profile into the portable version .. worked fine. So what could be causing the installed version to give the 'Gah ..' error, both on starting up FF & opening a new tab, but not affect the same FF portable (same version)? The system is an ASUS laptop Win7Pro 32-bit. It's my wife's pc and she uses IE (gasp), so it's not a life or death situation. I'll use FF portable & update now & then unless there's a fix??? One final observation - the first time FF is run after an update or a fresh install, it oddly works then, but shut FF down & restart it .. and all I get is "Gah.." - Gah indeed!

I know most people are trying to stop location services permissions, but I like letting sites like Yelp, etc, know where I am so they can use "current location." I have tried to use the privacy settings to add websites that I allow location permission, but that part of the site doesn't work for me. I can't add any websites in the box. I'm very smart, but I can't figure this out. I need a super intensely simplified step-by-step lesson to figure it out. I've been trying for 2 weeks on my own and am ready to dump firefox for chrome, where I can allow location permissions very easily. Please help me. Thanks.
