Whenever I launch Firefox my Graphics Drivers temporarily stop working. I get a balloon message on the taskbar, saying they are not working, then screen reloads and after third prompt all is then good to go and I can start browsing.

This has just recently started. I have uninstalled and then re installed, no difference.

It is rather annoying. I have version 83.0

Thanks

I cannot post any comment on Youtube on Mozilla Firefox. I can on Chrome and Edge. I use some add-ons (Screenshot below) but I'm pretty sure they don't interfere with it. I might have switched a parameter of Mozilla or I am blind and I cannot see where I should click to post a new comment on Youtube. I've put another screenshot of the comment section in which you can clearly see there is no option visible to post a new comment under a video..

Any idea or recommendation ?

Have a nice day tho.

Hello.

I'm trying to get Firefox to stop autoplaying videos. Under the autoplay settings in Options, I have selected "Block Audio and Video." Didn't work, videos play muted. After searching for a solution, I found a suggestion to try to set the "media.autoplay.allow-muted" to false in about:config. Nothing changed, they're still playing muted.

I'm specifically referring to videos on Facebook and Twitter.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks.

When I go to one site, Firefox is now asking me microphone permission on every page on that site during the same session.

This did not happen until two days ago. It used to be when I granted permission for my microphone to be used on that site, it applied to every page on it throughout the session, as long as I did not close out, sign out or close the window. Now, every time I go to speak, when on a new page, it asks for permission. Since this is a language learning site, this has become a real pain.

There is no "remember this setting" dialog either when I first give permission to use the microphone. It is asking for permission for the general site, so it's not asking for each page. When I check the permissions box after moving to the next page, no permissions are granted.

Nothing that I can tell has changed. It's not doing this with other browsers, which is concerning.

I checked my settings site and nothing has changed. I also did Firefox refresh and that did not help. Signed off and signed in again, on both the laptop and website -- all did not change this.

Hello, when I print www page from Firefox using "Foxit PhantomPDF Printer", sometimes only first page of document is generated and then I get "Print preview error - An error occurred while printing." (Generated file opens in Foxit PhantomPDF and contains the first page of the printed www page.) If I try to print the same www page again (immediately after), it is always successful and all pages of the www page are printed. What is the reason of this strange behavior? It happens only sometimes and only on some www pages. I don't know if it is caused by Foxit or by Firefox because the error dialog box contains no information who threw the error.

I am getting what seems to be random image or graphical corruption on some images. I first noticed this with a few favicons. Sometimes they would show corrupted, other times they would load properly. I also have now seen it on a webpage as shown in the attached image (percentage counter). The corruption seems to be of the same type, square with patterned lines of color. It seems to be some sort of rendering issue. The same page renders without corruption inside other browsers, so it is Firefox-specific. Any help much appreciated!

I am now seeing the new Firefox print screen when I try to print something from a webpage, but there is something critical missing from that screen. What happened to the "Simplify Page" option?? That, to me, was an incredibly valuable option within Firefox, given that I have to do a lot of printing from websites. Is that option now hidden somewhere in the new print screen, or has it been removed? For me, given what I do, that option is something of a deal-breaker. If Firefox has removed it, I may have to begin using a different browser.
