Hi there! I've been having problems with youtube not working in firefox lately. It's ONLY in firefox that it does this issue in, I've tried it in other browsers. Youtube tends to just....stop buffering in firefox for some reason? My internet connection is not the issue so I'm not sure what I could do to mess with it, I've done a fresh install of firefox, I've cleared cache and cookies. I'm genuinely at a loss.

It takes FOREVER for it to actually s tart up in the video too. The video plays fine until it just...stops buffering and takes 5-10 minutes to load. As mentioned before this is only an issue in firefox.

Hello, today I decided to create a new Firefox Profile. I set the directory of this profile to be my desktop, which is where I usually put things (downloads and such) by default. I thought it would create another folder there on the desktop and put everything inside that, but instead it put a bunch of junk on my desktop. No big deal, right, I can just delete the profile, and that other junk should also be deleted. Well, not only did deleting the Firefox profile delete the extra junk that was created while making the profile, it also, for some reason, has deleted about 90% of everything else on my desktop as well. There are now only a few seemingly random things left on the desktop, that it decided to spare for whatever reason.

Where did everything go? The recycle bin is empty.. Most of it was just shortcuts, not a big deal, but I did have a few folders with some rather important work that I would very much like to retrieve. Please tell me Firefox didn't just nuke my desktop, and that all of those things are now unrecoverable? Windows 7 64 bit

Thanks very much.

Let's say I've bookmarked a job posting from Company Z, the job is zookeeper. Then later there is a job for a lion trainer that I want to bookmark from the same company, same website -- but it overwrites the zookeeper job and replaces it with the lion trainer job.

1) Why is it doing this? 2) How can I save BOTH bookmarks (and more) from the same website?

I went to the trouble shooting site after asking my question about Thunderbird. It was suggested that running two firefox clean ups was a good idea. Now my ribbon thread is not present. I have to jump through hoops to find bookmarks, etc. This makes all navigation difficult. Is there a way to get the old data on the page in the old form? The data folder is on my desk top. I feel stupid because the trouble shooting site said all would be saved. How and where?

I have a very good PC (5800X3D, 7900XT, 32GB DDR4 3600), but Firefox (either the normal, canary and nightly version) can't play smoothly any 4K video (like the Borderlands trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU_NKNZljoQ ). 1440 and lower resolutions are fine, as are 4K videos on Chrome and Edge. FWIW, my CPU during 4K playback is barely used (1-2%), and my GPU's video codec (VCE) is used by around a third. Disabling HW accel makes things better, as it still stutters but it's (barely) passable. I already tried creating a new profile, but still it's the same.

I would reinstall the older version but Mozilla fixed so we cannot. I do not have time to reinstall all the extension so I am left with a useless Firefox. To bad Firefox does not allow reinstall of extension automatically, a reset of Firefox would also make Firefox useless; I am at a loss to how to continue to support Mozilla and not switch to another browser?

Hi,

For some time now, when I download a .pptx, .xlsx og .docx Firefox changes the file format to .pdf when downloading the file. I then have to manually choose the correct app for opening the file, overrule error messages and delete the ".pdf" when re-saving the file even though it recognises it is not really a pdf file.

I've tried to change the Firefox settings, clearing cache, restarting or deleting in config and other small attempts to reboot whatever suddenly started to cause this problem. As far as I can see, it is not an unknown issue, but I've not yet been able to find a solution to my problem, which is getting on my nerves.

Hope you can be of help.
