Copied from Fifefox:

Youtube switched to separate audio/video streaming technology for higher quality formats and no longer provides direct 720p (Since 24 September 2018)/1080p/mp3 streams. Converting these streams to downloadable formats for you needs powerful server infrastructure, therefore 1080p/mp3 downloading has been limited to PRO users. Read more at - https://videodroid.org/pro_upgrade.html. FREE users can download all formats in CACHE where some PRO users fetched the video/audio in past 24 hours, to test the feature you can try downloading popular videos.

If this is the case WHY should I use Firefox? There are other browsers!!!

I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

When signing in to my Barclays On Line account,the 2nd page of the sequence is distorted such that one vital box can only be seen my reducing the page to 65%. This happens on two PC's both are using Firefox. Browsing with Edge gives no problem! One PC is running win 10 the other Win11 - both have Norton 360 AV. Is this a FF or Barclays problem?

Please continue here: [/questions/1391580]
Hi, The spacebar does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using an iMac on macOS Monterey (V 12.6), and a Mac Magic Keyboard. Tapping the spacebar also causes the entire window I'm writing in to expand and contract in size. This happens when typing emails also. What do you recommend?

When expanding any video to full screen mode, the video does not occupy the entire screen. However, if Firefox itself is in full screen mode, then the video will occupy the full screen.

I tested this on YouTube and another website's video player and was able to consistently replicate the issue.

Since around Sep. 15 2022 cannot log in Home Depot credit account (Citibank) online and receive a 404 page not found error. Since I have paperless billing I need to go online.

Today September 30 around 5:15 PM PDT I called Home Depot customer service number 800-677-0232 as imprinted on the back of the card. (Consumer financial services are provided & processed by Citibank.)

Long story short: I was told that they do not support Firefox since about three years that I have to use either Safari or Chrome or Edge. When I told them that it worked until September 15 the answer was ignorantly repeated.

The culprit is Citibank who manages the financial services i.e. credit card for Home Depot. Citibank blocks Firefox users from accessing their account information with out any kind of notice. Only information one gets is a false and misleading error message: 404, page not found.

So Citibank decided Firefox browser will not be any longer supported, apparently since 2019 yet I experience it for the first time two weeks ago. Not the basic courtesy of any kind or form of professionalism and announcement or notice. Just a blank white page and the browser tab "404: page not found" unless [Sh]Citibank changes that you will no longer can use Firefox to log into your Citibank account. You might have well noticed that all the search result links you find listed (" Home Depot credit card") result in 404 error pages when using Firefox.

It is this proverbial arrogant "we show you the middle finger" attitude I have had enough with. Be it either constant "enforced" updates or every other year yet another browser that's not supported or another gimmick.

No word about from Home Depot or Citibank about this, despite all the communication channels, no email, text message, automated phone call or USPS letter. But junk, unrequested advertising, that works all the time on all channels.

Just lately I have been finding that, for a few websites, they are unusable because the screen looks extremely blurred. I have attached a screenshot. Compare this with what you see at ba.com.

I am wondering if this is caused by a new secure feature of FF which is incompatible with these few sites. Really, any suggestions would be welcome. Otherwise I have to use Edge..

Hello, I know when I closed the firefox browser , I can reopen firefox browser and click "settings"-- " history" --" Restore previous session" to retrieve all the webpages I was viewing last time. but this time it seems I made a mistake . I closed the firefox browser in the beginning with many valuable webpage still opened, after I restart the firefox browser, I close the browser by accident without firstly reloading all the restore previous session . Then I have to open firefox brower again, and try to click "settings"-- " history" --" Restore previous session" to try to retrieve all the webpages I was viewing in the first time. but this time no previous session can be loaded. since those webpages I was viewing are important webpage I need to check, May someone tell me how to get those valuable webpage link again? I know I can try to find those webpage link slowly by checking all the history day by day. but honestly speaking, I have 15 around webpages in the firefox brower and some of them are viewed around 20 days or 30 days before . I haven't closed my firefox browser for almost 40 days so it will be very hard for me to search the history webpage to find out them one by one. I am not sure whether there are some tips to try to load the "restore previous session " again for the first firefox browser I closed.
