Hi, when I try to watch a video on Prime Video I get error saying that the plugin crashed.

I asked a similar question on Reddit here and now I’m quite sure that the plugin is the Widevine plugin.

I tried everything I’ve been suggested but still I can’t solve this issue.

Does anyone have any other tips? Thanks

Since the new update was released I have been unable to figure out how to have the 'Open with Firefox' option for PDFs display the URL for the website and not my computer's program files.

I link a number of PDFs for my work and currently need to switch to Chrome to obtain the correct link, which is unnecessary and time consuming, prompt help would be greatly appreciated!

With many websites I am experiencing overwritten text on page to the point that often it is not possible to read what is there or click accordingly - see sample image below. Already reduced security level to 'basic', but that does not solve problem. Is it just a setting? On Chrome all these websites work fine but I still prefer to use Firefox.

Windows 10 x64

Help appreciated.

Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

Since the last update, I am receiving the error message SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT when I access one website that I need to use as part of my work.

It is a trusted site that I have used for many years. The error message above displays and I get the option to retry which usually works, but I lose any content up to that point.

I have contacted the website owners as suggested and they say it is a Mozilla issue. I found a couple of suggestions to fix this on-line, but it did not work.

Can you help?

No matter what I do, it just eventually happens EVERYTIME. The worst part is that I can't predict when it will happen next time.

For some reason, when I download a file with Firefox (Firefox is currently set to always download files right to my Desktop), and then move it from my Desktop (which is obviously located in C: drive) to my external drive, place it in some folder and after that try to move that folder in the other place, or rename it - I just can't because that folder, or files within it are currently being used by some other program (I'm sorry, what?).

But! The solution is very simple: if I close Firefox and try again - ta-da! The folder is no longer used by anything, and I can do what I wanted to do with success.

This is very, VEEERY annoying! Additionally, I'll add a screenshot showing all of extensions installed in my browser, as well as troubleshoot info (if that might help). Anyone, please, help me fix that!

My system is Firefox 79, Windows 10. Lazy loading is supported in Firefox since version 75: https://caniuse.com/#feat=loading-lazy-attr

I found that this works on Firefox for lazy loading of images. However, YouTube embedding in an iframe, it doesn't work. I ensured that the video is long way below the fold. Even then, the iframe is loaded upfront. This is the HTML for the iframe:

<iframe loading="lazy" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iQBat7e0MQs" allowfullscreen="" width="480" height="270"></iframe>

On Chrome, lazy loading works as expected for the same web page (on my localhost).

I was using Firefox in my computer and it was working fine. But after I migrated to windows 10 Os and installed Firefox, I am facing some issues with Firefox. First of all, the gmail.com page is not loading correctly (image added). Also some websites like geeksforgeeks and other websites are having trouble to show some images (mainly).

- what I tried doig previously. 1. Doing ctrl + shift + r on those pages 2. Uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with clearing firefox app data folder from windows computer. 3. Doing a refresh from help menu. 4. Tried running in safe mode. (disabling all extensions) 5. Clearing cache and data from firefox settings.

How how to show them perfectly. however they show good in chrome, but I want to use firefox. So a fix will be highly appreciated.

Hello

Such web pages after loaded, show the video embeded window in white with in the middle written : "Click to activate Adobe Flash Player"

It is on Linux Mint 19.3 with Firefox 79.0 , FFMPEG is the last version proposed by the depositories : 7:3.4.8-0ubuntu0.2 Opera show the same issue So I must use Google Chrome for these websites Linux Mint 19.3 installation USB key is not affected

If I accept Flash to display these video, the quality is too bad, compared with HTML5, it is like some 240p enlarged to 1080p
