Hi, first of thanks for reading and possibly responding.

The issue I am having has been going on for a few days. In websites where youtube video's are embedded if I try and play the video on the said site it will load and display an error message An error occurred. Please try again later. If I visit the video on youtube, link provided in the video itself, then it plays just fine. Error is not restricted to one site but anything that embeds youtube videos.

I have also come across some strange youtube.com issues, when I am on the main website you get the thumbnails of video's but no time duration are displayed in the thumbnail, neither are the 3 dots where you can have one of the videos removed (not a big deal and maybe this was implemented a while ago I don't know tbh). When I play a video, as in visit the video page on youtube the side bar videos sometimes do and sometimes don't display time duration.

Please check attached image to see what I mean. Left is without said timecodes, right is what it almost should be.

What addons do I use: Ublock Origin is the only one worth noting but even without it the weird thing still occurs. I don't use any plug ins that correspond with youtube.

I am using the latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Things I have tried thus far to resolve it: - make sure Firefox is up to date - try with and without addblocker (Ublock) - remove Adobe flash entirely - refresh Firefox and clear all data and cookies 9tried this I think 3 times now, no change) - looked through older posts with similar issues but most links regarding html5 on youtube were 404 and sometimes the solution stated things like 'cause by some video helped addon' which I do not use or updating Flash

Am I the only one with this issue?

Hi, I have a weird issue if I scroll with my mouse down a webpage I'll get these jagged horizontal lines in the middle of the screen but go away when I stop. Also, when I watch a video where a lot of moving is happening like if it's a hockey game the middle of the screen just that jagged line across in just the middle. What causes this and how do I get rid of it I don't notice on Internet Explorer browser and I've tried disabling hardware and stuff but doesn't work.

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

Hi, as a user of Firefox from day1 I have hit my first problem so not bad going. Right, I have a win10 desktop(DT1) and 2 laptops (LP1 AND LP2). All win10 fully patched up &Firefox 84.02. This morning I noticed my network share from LP1 to DT1 wasnt working and found LP1 powered down. Powered it up & it looked to be completing a patch (KB4598242) so let it finish successfully and logged in. It wouldnt take the 2 master pw prompts although definitely typing them correctly. Poked around the forum that talks of key4.db, key3.db and logins.json. Only had key4db but had a loginsbackup.json. deleted logins.jason and renamed loginsbackup. reloaded. Same, so am stuck. Did notice as LP1 loaded after powering on that a Firefox update occurred. Could one have messed the other? Anyway these things seldom happen on their own so what went on yesterday. On LP2 I noticed that on each reboot I got 2 identical FFox windows. I tried refresh, uninstalling ffox & mainteneance service, same. So I searched for the word firefox and deleted everything I could find and reinstalled FFox. Same, so switched off & gave up. Perhaps I have sync between my devices, not sure. However I have never at any stage changed my master passwords which is the same on all 3 pc's. Any ideas? Shame to lose over 120 passwords if I have to somehow start over again by uninstalling FFox and reinstalling..that'll take ages. And of course the password prompt is coming up all the time whilst typing this. Help please

When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

I tried downloading wondershare dvd maker and avg popped up saying it wasnt trusted. I tried leaving the alert but it wouldnt let me so i tried pressing alt f4. Alt f4 didnt work, so i chose deletion option. But it deleted my firefox browser. Naturally i had no idea what was happening when i tried clicking the firefox shortcut and it said the file didnt exist or had been moved or deleted. I checked my uninstall option on my computer and firefox wasnt even listed. I downloaded imyfoneanyrecover app after a quick google search but for some reason when i opened the app it couldnt go in window mode and half the page is off the screen and i dont know how to switch the app to window mode. I even tried downloading firefox again and it wouldnt install. I am really confused right now and i am afraid all my history, bookmarks, etc. Are gone forever. Is it avg or was the wondershare dvd maker a malware that did this? Please someone help me!

I accidentally set a frequent website I use to always open in the wrong container. I do get the prompt about 'would you like to open this container in [wrong container]' and I click the option not to do so while also having checked the box that says to remember this decision, but the check box seems to do nothing. I've checked the box countless times to no effect. I seem to have permanently created this state which is highly frustrating. I don't want this site opened in any container. I have a lot of sites I've configured in what I'm terming here "wrong container" (though it's the correct for those other sites), so I don't want to have to delete the entire container to fix this problem.

I've had other problems with Multi-Account Containers (such as, tabs I've closed coming back like zombies after restarting Firefox; or Firefox seeming to forget that certain tabs were in containers and the act of clicking their tab to place them in the correct container causes them first to reload in the default of no container), but for now my biggest issue is not being able to remove a website from the "always open in wrong container" list. Where is the list of websites per container stored? Is this somewhere in the about:config or in a raw, human-readable file on my filesystem somewhere? How can I fix my problem without having to delete the container entirely?

I'm running FF 82.0.2 (64-bit) with Multi-Account Containers version 7.2.0 on Manjaro Linux version 20.2
