When joining a Zoom meeting hosted on the browser rather than installed Zoom app, my speakers are not working and the troubleshooting error messages says the browser is blocking zoom from accessing the speakers. I can't find a setting in Firefox preferences to block/allow it. Speakers work on YouTube/Vimeo with no problems (speaker volume 100% and not muted). Speakers had been working with Zoom until a couple weeks ago. I don't want to install the Zoom app just because Google hates privacy and and I don't want to help them own my privacy anymore than I must. I use DuckDuckGo for the default search engine, have Ghostery for an Extension/add-on, and have the Firefox browser set for private window always. I have tried various cookie settings for the Zoom meetings and even the dreaded "accept all cookies" and have Firefox cookie handling set to Standard, with deleting all cookies and history upon exit. I am on 64-bit Windows 10 up to date as of 2/16/22, Dell computer updated to same date, and latest update of Firefox 2/18/22. I have done a number of web searches and not finding the speaker topic or error message other than three unanswered help requests from others with the same problem dated from July-Sept 2021.

I'm buying a new computer and I'm wondering is there a method/procedure that I can use to transfer the entire FF browser including settings, extensions, bookmarks, and passwords without having to reinstall all those items individually? I know I can save and import bookmarks but what about everything else? I look forward to anyone comments. Thanks

Hello,

I'm trying to sort bookmark folders by date. I followed some threads on-line, but its not saving. Am I missing something?

I'm going to Manage Bookmarks (see screenshot) i'm able to select a folder and click Views and it defaulted to 'unsorted' I select Sort by Added and the latest bookmarks in this area sort by latest on the TOP first. Perfect!

I exit out check bookmarks and they are still sorted in the reverse... meaning latest bookmark is still at the bottom and my very first bookmark in this folder is at the top.

Maybe its not designed this way? if so I don't see the reason to go under Managed Bookmarks and sort by anything if its not going to save that way.

Moral of the story trying to sort by date added in any folder not name (which is only thing I see when right clicking on any folder). I want latest saved bookmarks sorted from TOP down not latest's starting at the bottom.

Thanks

Hello,

How do I disable or remove these autofill searches that I do not use that appear at the very top. They keep appearing such as searching up gamestop it goes to gamefaq first or searching maps to get google maps, it gives my local city website map instead.

These have become a nuisance as I never visit these sites.

Thanks!

My old Linux computer died and I have removed the still good SSD from it. I have installed the latest Firefox on my new computer and would like to restore the bookmarks and other saved data to the new computer.

I am running Ubuntu 20.04, the old computer was on Ubuntu 18.04.

Can these things be restored, and if so what do I need to do?

I have two PDFs that I designed and uploaded to our website, but the headline in both displays with clipped characters in Firefox. Different fonts were used in both and the issue is the same. I even tried adding more tracking then re-uploading, the issue persists.

I checked in other browsers and the text displays as intended. The attached screenshots show the issue in Firefox, compared to how it should look (viewed in Chrome).

It's only this one line of text that is affected and I don't know why.

I can't login to the NY Times website using Firefox. I'm sure I'm using the correct password because I can log in using a different browser. I don't save passwords in Firefox. I enter them manually or use a password manager. As I said, I'm certain I'm using a valid password. I've cleared the cookies and all of the items under History on the Settings page. When I close Firefox, nothing is saved. When I contact NYT customer service, I was informed that they've had a lot of requests for assistance from Firefox users, and nothing was out of order with those users' NYT login; the problem was with Firefox.

Please advise.
