I am unable to disable the Inline Playback on YouTube when using Firefox ver 115.2.0esr (64-bit).

The Inline Playback is set to : Off

But when hovering the mouse of the thumbnail video it starts playing the video.

Is the another setting to disable Inline Playback when using Firefox?

I'm running FF 115.8.0esr on MacOS High SIerra 10.13.6. (desktop). I generally sleep the computer rather than shutting down each day.

The problem - If I have restarted the computer or restarted FF, I can play video and audio OK. Mostly I will find that I can still play for a day or so (even having slept the computer). Then they stop. Opening a new window or a private window doesn't help, the only solution is to restart FF or the computer. All the while, I can get the same video/audio to play on Safari, and Apple iTunes is fine too. It doesn't matter what the source is - YT, Spotify BBC iPlayer, BBC Sounds and so on.

Would really like some help on this!

I am using an iMac that uses MacOS High Sierra version 10.13.6. Because of its age, it cannot use an operating system beyond High Sierra. When I selected to update Firefox today, Apple generated a message that said Firefox would no longer work on my computer. Firefox 102.14 Oesr (64-bit) is installed and seems to work.

Will I no longer be able to update Firefox?

do firefox 'saved passwords' remain after backing up to external hd and factory resetting mac?

Hi, Am backing up a laptop that needs to go overnight to a repair shop and want to wipe it clean for privacy. Will the passwords saved by firefox be saved in the backup as well?

I've also downloaded them to a csv file as an additional precaution, but have no idea how to reload them into 'saved passwords' after the repairs are complete, as no option is provided for that - only the option to import from another browser... Thanks for your help!

PS: also, why does mozilla require a manual login to this support forum when my login is saved in it's own password saver?? It is not auto-filling it as expected.

For the last week or two I have had an issue with Firefox closing my email (yahoo business mail) tab automatically, every time I download a file from an email.

After opening emial I click to download the file, i have the settings set to ask where I want it saved, and then either while I'm selecting the destination and labeling it, or right after the tab automatically closes. It happens both ways which suggests to me it's occurring after a specified amount of time, not based on completion of an action. And it's happening every time.

MacBook Pro Firefox 102.0.1

Any idea how to stop this?

I am happily running Mac OS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012). This OS allows me to use my many 32 and 64 bit apps and have excellent control of my laptop. My bank is saying that my browser (Firefox 88.0.1) needs to be updated. When I check system requirements at mozilla, any newer Firefox claims to need an intel x86 processor INCLUDING the version of Firefox I am now using. My Mac has an intel Core i7 processor. When I click on about Firefox, I'm offered to update to 109.0.1. Will this update actually work for me without losing any functions I already have? Is there a better choice for my Mac and Firefox?

I am getting SO tired of being told to stop or close the page THAT I AM USING to speed up my browser. How is that going to help anything? If I stop the page that I am USING, then I cannot do what I want to do. How about you stop cramming in so much garbage that the browser cannot run properly?

And, yes, I know...this is an obsolete computer....so what?

We got an alert when opening Firefox on our iMac yesterday suggesting we "refresh" and that bookmarks and saved passwords would not be affected. After the refresh, bookmarks were retained but all passwords wiped out. Further, as we painstakingly looked up or created new passwords on sites and entered them, the usual Firefox alert would come up asking if we wanted to save the new log-in, user name and password on each site, we'd select "yes" and then find none of them saved. Can anyone advise us? We're rebuilding our saved passwords on Chrome now but have had Firefox as out primary browser for over a decade.

Please tell me in simple terms how to reload if my Firefox drop down menu does not display this option...which is apparently crucial. Last couple days, two familiar web-sites have asked me to reload. Note: I read the two "help" instructions, both of which suggest clicking (somewhere) on "Customize," then following instructions which these two helpers provide. Problem: Just as drop-down menu for Firefox provides no "Reload" option, it likewise provides no "Customize" option.

Hi, Ive got FF version 115.2.1esr 64bit- Macbook Pro High Sierra.. I was watching amazon shows and movies until last night, started to get the message from Amazon, "Video Unavailable- We're experiencing a problem playing this video, for assistance, etc..." I pulled up Chrome and the movies are playing just fine there. I put FF in 'safe mode' and the video is playing, so what does this tell me? If I can play the movie in safe mode why not in regular mode? Keep in mind that I was watching other movies earlier in the day and nothing changed during the day, I didnt download anything new, just business as usual. So what do I do now if the vid plays in safe mode and not the regular mode?

Thanks very much for any help.

I don't know the correct name for my problem. I have been trying to display an email collection form (newsletter sign-up) from Mailerlite at my website, virginiasanderson.com, on Wordpress. The form displays on my Android/Samsung phone and on Chrome, but will not display on Firefox. I spent considerable time struggling, with help from Mailerlite, before I realized the problem was Firefox. I have tried turning off Enhanced Protection. The form is an embedded form, not a pop-up, but I also allowed pop-ups for the site. I must have some other setting that is preventing these forms from working on Firefox. I much prefer Firefox to other options, but this may be a deal-breaker when it comes to continuing to build my site. Please help.
