When scrolling a web site with an embedded video, as that video scrolls off screen, it automatically pops out to a picture-in-picture video on the lower right-hand part of the page. How can I disable this. I don't want this to ever happen.

Your ads are all over my computer even in programs that are not yours. This is very intrusive and annoying. No one is going to look at these and one has to get rid of them to continue using other programs.

How do I stop these ads from coming on my computer?

Please advise how to disable automatic updates on Firefox running on Linux Kubuntu. Solutions posted on mozilla.org do not work because stated disable options are not available(see screenshot). I have set app.auto.update to false in about:config but this does not disable updates. I have been repeatedly advised not to disable updates so I am aware of the so called risk. I am very tired of every update breaking a reliable browser and having to repair/fix/workaround each and every time. Please provide a viable solution.

Since a few days now my URL bar is too small. I can see where it used to be in light gray, but the text box is just a small part of it. I searched everywhere but I can not find anything to fix it. I even tried to reset the settings to default but it is still the same. Any idea what I can do?

Here is a screenshot of how it looks like when I click into the text box: (see attached)

I have Firefox on 2 computers. One is for my wife. On her computer Firefox defaults to all my settings, including passwords and logins. When she tries to log into her accounts, like CC and banking, everything defaults back to my settings.

How can I set up Firefox on her computer with only her settings?

This is so strange. Usually cookie selection is after you sign in not before...

I have used Firefox as my preferred web browser for years. Following an update a couple of weeks ago, Firefox no longer starts. Instead I get the following error message:

XUL Runner Error: Platform version '127.0.2 is not compatible with minVersion>=127.0.1 maxVersion<=127.0.1

My OS is Windows 10.

I would be most grateful for any advice on how to regain access to Firefox.

I recently posted a question in - as I thought - the Mozilla community/support forum. I don't exactly remember the link I went to, but since I am logged in to my browser with a Firefox account, I could opt to log in to that forum with it, I didn't need to type my password, just click the button to use my existing account. So far so good.

I got an answer via e-mail. The email contained no plain link back to the post or answer. It contained a big green button "Mark as solved" and a link "This doesn't solve my problem", graphically positioned as to make it quite analogous to the big green button.

I didn't want to quickly mark the answer as either one, I wanted to go there to reply.

In the answer, however, the person answering me included a link to another post. I hoped that, clicking on this one, would - first of all - be of interest, and - secondly - lead me back to the forum in a neutral way so that I could find my own post there via my profile. Again, I clicked on a button to use Mozilla to login. Now I seem to have a second profile, the two are obviously not the same. Also, the forums don't quite seem to be the same. Support Mozilla vs Connect Mozilla. Why are they handled differently, why didn't I get the option to login with my firefox-account, when Connect Mozilla even gets my email adress automatically from it?

So, I had to try one of the buttons, they have different link addresses. I obviously tried the one that said "This doesn't solve my problem", and it plainly led me back to the answer on the (correct) forum and opened the replyform, also showing a button again: "Solved" and "This doesn't solve my problem". Why isn't the link in the email just labelled as linking you back to the forum, like "View thread" or "Reply to thread".

In addition I did not easily understand how to vote for the suggested idea in the linked post. A community manager had posted the reply that the post is now idea-status and that it is open to "votes (aka kudos)". No link or button to do it. Some scrolling around led my eye to an answer in the post to have one kudo, so I understood it had something to do with the like-button. Scrolled up to the original post, which did not have the word kudo on its like button, just a number. Hovering over it I finally got to know that I could give kudos by pressing this button. I got confused since several answers had this button. It was just a like-button to me, not the special vote-button that only appears if a manager opens the vote. Why is the manager text not just: "Vote (aka 'leave kudos') by clicking the like-button, which is now enabled."

HDR videos (specifically smpte2084 (PQ) / bt2020 videos) on youtube don't show correctly since last few updates of firefox on mac M1 & M2 sonoma 14.5. Firefox shows overly bright (almost whitewashed) videos, seems like something changed either with MacOS or firefox in last few updates. Firefox was working fine on older MacOS last 2 years with HDR videos.

Here is a link to test this problem on Mac, Safari shows the same video correctly in HDR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s52wB4lKLeo

Kindly fix this problem soon.
