I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Whenever I open a youtube video, the player will be paused. All I have to do is click it to start, but that's mildly inconvenient enough to bother me. This issue is present when all of my plugins/extensions/addons are disabled as well. It does not occur if I use Chrome.

My bookmarks side bar is too wide and I would like to make it narrower. I have tried a few userchrome.css things but none work correctly. It looks like there is a frame or something behind the sidebar so when it narrows the frame is still there anyway. I am trying to get a little more size to my main view panel BUT I also like to leave the bookmarks side bar displayed at all times.

Thank you

I was tricked into downloading a fake flashplayer update that included the adware "pro search tip." I've been able to uninstall it from my other browsers and firefox and it doesn't appear anywhere on my machine. I also used sophos to scan my machine, which deleted it. But it still redirects my default search engine to itself in firefox.

I have https everywhere activated, and ad blocker as well.

Firefox has gotten worse and worse. I updated FF and can't view all of my Facebook pages because I need to activate Javascript but FF doesn't allow it, making FB useless on Firefox. What a waste!

Hi!

I just upgraded to windows10. I don't use a paid antivirus or security software so wanted to make sure I am using maximum security add-ons available. I would appreciate your advice.

1) What are the quintessential security and anti-virus add-ons recommendations? So far, I am using the following. Is it too much? Too less? AVAST online security Ghostery Ublock origin ad block plus phishwall IBM security Rapport

2) I read that I should keep add-ons minimum. Are there any cons in using multiple add-ons for same purpose? For example, can I use Ublock origin and Ghostery together as an anti-malware? Or would that diminish the efficacy of each extension?

3) Are the security add-ons one should use in Firefox and chrome more or less the same?

Thank you!!

I had no problem playing Netflix videos before FF 66. I'm now on FF 66.0.1. I disabled all add-ons, restarted FF to no avail. This issue MIGHT be DRM related since preview vids play correctly in Netflix. They aren't DRM controlled. The full videos, which are DRM controlled, do not play. 'Play DRM-Controlled Content' is checked in my FF settings. I can play full videos as expected in Chrome. I prefer not to for obvious reasons. The NF error code is F7701-1003. The msg is 'There appears to be a problem with Firefox which is preventing Netflix from starting playback'. I've gone through the steps that NF suggest for this issue. Doing that doesn't resolve the issue.

Firefox Developer Edition (67.0b5) is my default browser I'm running windows 10.

if Firefox is running and i click on a link in my email, Firefox will open a new tab and show the page. if Firefox is NOT running and I click on a link, Firefox will open a blank tab; I'll have to click the link again - without closing Firefox - for the page to show.

this behavior is fairly new - about 4 updates back.

thank you;

Seems a bit much to me.

Well, the image upload appears to not be working. Here's the text from the Firefox message:

"uBlock Origin has been updated. You must approve new permissions before the updated version will install. Choosing 'Cancel' will maintain your current add-on version.

It requires your permission to:

- Store unlimited amount of client-side data"

I didn't see specific information regarding whether or not Legacy Extensions are removed/uninstalled if they're no longer supported. I don't want to replace the extension, I just want confirmation that despite being listed in 'unsupported' the add-on is removed from my computer, as opposed to just being disabled.

Every time I start firefox it nags me to "Set up sync" and it's driving me nuts. I only surf the net on my PC. I'm an old guy and my arthritic fingers won't allow me to use small devices to surf the net. I have no other devices to sync to. And I NEVER WILL have other devices to sync to. I am a long term firefox user, and don't want to use any other browser - but this is driving me nuts.

BTW, I get that you want to remind me about software updates, and I am fine with this. They are important - but not this sync business.
