Hi, I tried to update my Firefox Accounts secondary email, but I got the error message This email was already confirmed by another user." That does not seem likely, as no one else has access to my secondary email account. Obviously, there's something I don't grasp here. How do I fix this?

What has Firefox upgraded in security setting that is blocking so many of my websites, including many that surely are harmless, like Pinterest. Have those sites been hacked, is my account compromised, what's going on? I'm not a computer whiz, so I can't follow these lengthy suggestions about which I understand not a bit.

Hi! I'm trying to access a graduate school admission interview due in the next few days. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding Firefox version 69. This is the version I have to use for Kira talents application - https://app.kiratalent.com/n/assessment/7sCGnz

I've reached out to Kira Talents already. But, I don't know if you have version 69 available and the systems requirement needed to download and operate a browser that old. It seems strange to me that a new application called Kira Talents require such an old browser. I mean, this is like 30 version earlier. What is the latest version? 90 0r 100 for Firefox?

Please any suggestion to help my inquiry would be much appreciated.

I'm anticipating to resolve my issue so I can start my video interview for my MBA application which seems to be blocked from me being successful at completing my application.

Thanks! Karolina

I seem to have that bug that was fixed a few updates ago where videos won't play. I have the latest version of Firefox. For example, YouTube will load and the page, progress bar and even subtitles will show, but the video will just have the spinning circle. I have tried videos on other websites (Facebook, Tumblr) and they won't play either.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox, refreshed Firefox, disabled all add-ons, allowed autoplay of videos/audio but nothing works. The videos all work on Chrome and Edge.

I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?

Ending in 52.X, one of the old add-ons called mkiosk was really wonderful. It had all sorts of configurable options including one that was critical to my free application of Firefox-ESR used by some non-profits. That feature was a timeout such that if the user walked away while not in the "home" web page, a configurable parameter returned firefox to that "home" page. I have not found this feature anywhere else. Unfortunately, installing 52.X on a standalone current bullseye version for the Raspberry Pi is turning out to be problematic. Is there any way to resolve this issue?

Some ideas: 1) Find out how to make Firefox accept an obsolete add-on 2) Fins out how to tell with an external program what page Firefox is on and by periodically polling it, kill and restart Firefox if the time on that page exceeds a certain limit. On the old mkiosk, I set 5 minutes.

Any help here? I'm not a json person so even editing the old mkiosk is beyond me.

Firefox stopped working today. Every time I launch it, it responds with: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I launched Task Manager and killed the active processes, relaunched ff - did not resolve the issue.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ff multiple times - did not resolve the issue.

I have removed the lock as per here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding#:~:text=Right%2Dclick%20on%20an%20empty,it)%20and%20click%20End%20Process.

I have verified the access rights as per here: https://www.minitool.com/news/fix-firefox-is-already-running-but-is-not-responding.html

I have completely removed all the mozilla entries from both Program Files AND in the registry, then reinstalled. did not resolve the issue. registry instructions from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/s9lguc/how_to_completely_uninstall_firefox/

I have tried to delete existing profiles AND create a new profile but I always get an error: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved." https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles#w_start-the-profile-manager-when-firefox-is-closed

I'm out of things to try. Hate to abandon Firefox but I'm at the end of my capabilities.

Firefox does not play videos from this website: https://texassports.com/index.aspx. Only showing a black box.

Edge and Chrome play the videos with no problem.

This problem exists on three different laptops, two W10s and one W7.

I am a long time user of Firefox and have never had this problem before.

What setting(s) do I need to change?

Auto-updated to v105 today (105.0.2 64-bit Windows 10) and all bookmarks were gone. Not just gone but the bookmark manager seems not to be rendering properly (see attached image where there should be at least some elements drawn). Additionally, neither the bookmarks nor history left pane show anything (second attachment).

The 105 update was applied this morning when first opening the browser. Profile folder -> bookmarkbackups shows a backup from just before the update. Bookmark library -> Restore gives that backup as an option, but restoring that backup has no effect (does nothing).

Exiting Firefox and manually moving places.sqlite to a backup location and then restarting also has no effect. places.sqlite is rebuilt but library -> restore still has no effect.

I just made the switch from Chrome to Firefox, and I'm still trying to understand the small differences that exist between the 2 browsers.

While on Twitter, what I usually do is middle-click with my mouse on a Tweet to a new tab that I want to look into later, then continue scrolling down my timeline, then check out the Tweets I opened in the new tab(s). However, when I try to do the same thing on Firefox, it automatically opens the new tab. Because of how Twitter works, this also reloads the Home page when I opened it up, so I just lose anything I was just looking at when I opened the Tweet in a new tab.

What can I do differently here?

Recently updated to version 105.0.1 and I've started to have problems with Twitch. I'm unable to login and keep getting the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again." so I cleared the cookies/site data. Still unable to login. I know this isn't an error with my account as I can login via Chrome with no issues. Then I tried downgrading to the previous version 104.0.2 and had no issues with Twitch. Most likely, this new version is creating an error with the Twitch site. Hopefully new updates will address this issue - in the meantime, hoping someone has a solution.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

Hello, I use Firefox 105 on my PC. I have embedded various YouTube videos on my website. I've had the following problem for a few days: I can see my videos on both my smartphone and tablet without going to YouTube. On my PC (Win 10 Pro Vers. 21H2) the display wheel "rolls" without opening the video (... "an error has occurred, try again later"). But if I click on: "Watch on YouTube" plays the video via YouTube correctly. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Is there a wrong setting in the Firefox browser? Many thanks and best regards Helmut

When attempting to log into support.discord.com, I can't click sign in, as a cookie is blocking me. Discord have told me as it's a specific problem with Firefox, I needed to ask, it also appears to be something that I've setup in Firefox, as a fresh install worked fine.

In the popup for logging in, I get a banner message stating: "Cookies required to use Firefox

To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once. " with a continue hyperlink at the bottom. This generates a popup asking me to accept a cookie. I accepted this, but it's still blocking me from logging in. I have tried disabling my extensions that might block the cookie, and they have also allowed the cookie that was requested.

On a brand new browser, it's fine. I have strict blocking enabled, with ublock and duckduckgo's extension (all were disabled when I was testing if they were blocking it) and I still can't log in. I'm not sure what else is being blocked (other than google analytics, but that shouldn't stop me logging in).

I do also get some console errors: Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined

Ive been doing this for years and thanked mozilla silently many times for this. But now Whats Up???
