FF will not save my password for at least one site. The issue is not related to the site. All other Browsers are able to save the user and name and password to this site.

I am using FF 61.0.1. I have noticed that "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is greyed out. I have FF set to remember history. I have already read about how some people who has this problem in earlier versions were able to fix the problem by not using Private Browsing (which I am not) and by launching FF as an Administrator, which also doesn't take care of my problem.

I have even imported the saved logins from Chrome where this works, and even that did not address the issue. If someone can tell me what is causing this to be greyed out, I think that will be the answer to the problem.

Firefox 61 on Ubuntu. When I try to open .swf files, it tries to use the system's video display application, which cannot handle it (because it's not a video).

In Preferences->Applications there are 3 entries for SWF file type: application/x-shockwave-flash and application/futuresplash which are assigned to Shockwave Flash plugin, and application/vnd.adobe.flash.movie, which is assigned to Videos (and does not has an option for the plugin in its drop-down menu).

Somehow, all SWF files are assumed to be of the last type, which does not work. How can I assign all SWF files to the plugin?

I have tried the suggestion and none work... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1198817

I used to use an app for this and it no longer works either.

The font size for websites I was able to set @ 1.25 in about:config and are perfect size for me

But still the text size in the Firefox program is showing very small and hard to read.

Seems that every cosequent update strips away a needed feature. When searching for addons, the majority I select are no longer functioning.

The biggest killing blow for me that if I put video id into this line https://www.youtube.com/embed/(video ID)?wmode=direct&hd=1 it can go into fullscreen like it could the day before. Whats going on? :( I updated my video driver, I updated flash player (after uninstalling it). And everything was just fine last night.

YouTube has new video formats not supported in the Linux version, but supported in Windows and Mac.

I saw something new in YouTube today. When I tried to watch a file (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJVdiGpnH_s) the only resolution I could get was 360p. A video option labeled "Missing options?" brought up a YouTube help page (screenshot attached).

Why is Linux left out of this capability? It can't be because those formats are unsupportable in Linux; Chrome supports them for all of their browsers, including Linux. Why does Firefox discriminate against Linux users?

Using Facebook video/voice call: Browser asks me for permission to use video and mic AND gives me dropdowns to configure devices for each. Figuring I probably won't need to configure these settings again, I checked "remember these settings" and hit OK. Started the call - video worked, but microphone did not, even though the device was tested and worked. Now I wanted to go back and look at the settings for which devices to use for video and microphone. My BIG mistake: telling Firefox to remember settings. Oh no!

At this point, I figured the internet would have the answer. I can't find anybody who has mentioned this issue. The question: where do I go to change the video device or microphone device for Firefox AFTER I hit "remember" the first time? Or is hitting "remember" the kiss of death for being able to change these settings in the future? I searched Firefox settings: apparently the only settings relevant to mic/webcam are to allow or disallow those devices. Not what I want. An additional question: does Firefox just go directly to the default devices specified by Windows? Regardless of what I told it the first time? That might explain it. If this is the case, it's a major design flaw that it even asked me which devices to use the first time.

I switched to firefox because Chrome is clunky, Edge is Edge and Opera doesn't support Truekey. So far I've liked everything, but I've had one real bad problem. I always use icon only bookmarks, because I don't like the text there. I've had the problem of the site not getting thumbnails for many sites, and it doesn't seem like there is any way to upload them. I'd really like it if there was a way to do this. Thanks.

Attempting to access certain features on the site of a bank in another country, I downloaded a shady program the bank said was required to perform transactions. The program installed a some suspicious drivers that appeared to monitor Internet communications, and modified my Firefox certificates.

Luckily I had a recent restore point that appears to have removed the application and drivers from the system. But my Firefox installation still contains a certificate authority with a name related to the application.

How can I reset all the certificate authorities in my Firefox installation to only those that Firefox provides in the official installer?

Are the certificate authorities stored at the Firefox level, or at the user profile level?

Finally if all else fails, if I uninstall and reinstall Firefox will this reset the certificate authorities, or are they stored with my user profile?

Will uninstalling Firefox remove my user profile? If I reinstall Firefox will it find my pre-existing user profile automatically?

I have windows 7 32bit with Firefox v61.01 32 bit. The latest update removed the java plugin so I uninstalled Java and reinstalled. It works fine on Internet Explorer 11 but the plugin will not install on Firefox. Yes I've checked the Add-ons Manager. Yes I did close Firefox before installing and yes I've restarted Firefox. I've also installed a plugin that automatically adds websites to the allowed list on Java. So any solutions on hot to get Java plugin to install on Firefox? We have a proprietary program that requires a Java enabled browser that is not Chrome or Internet Explorer. So any suggestions?

I have updated the favicon on a client site and yet my Firefox bookmark still shows the old favicon and will not update to the new one. I've cleared history and cache, deleted and re-bookmarked - all to no avail. One forum suggested an add on but the one they suggested isn't compatible with the latest version of Firefox, which I have.

Any ideas?
