When I am browsing with firefox, youtube behaves as if I am not logged into my youtube account even when I clearly am. My youtube avatar shows up and I can look at my data in youtube, so I am obviously logged in. However, when I try to subscribe or unsubscribe, it doesn't let me. When I try to add a video to my favorites, it doesn't work.

Other browsers do not have this problem, only firefox. I already tried a clean re-install with all addons removed and it STILL acts like that.

So, I want to run Firefox from the command line withoug address bar and in a new window. I found that I can enable ssb and try it with: firefox -ssb http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This doesn't work, so I tried: firefox -ssb -url http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This opens it, not in a new window but in a new tab of an already existing session, and the ssb argument doesn't seem to work. Then, I tried: firefox -new-window http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This does work but again, there's still the address bar. The -ssb argument works with websites like google.com etc. but not local sites like the address I mentioned there. What do I do?

With the most recent version of Firefox (80.0.1 64-bit), the free videos at cbs.com no longer play, even with AdBlock turned off. That wasn't the case with earlier versions of the browser. However, everything at abc.com, nbc.com, YouTube, and Netflix play as always. I contacted CBS about this matter but, after a four-week wait, have not had a response. Fortunately, I can watch the free CBS content if I use Google Chrome and/or Microsoft Edge. Because of that, I wonder if the problem lies with Firefox and not CBS. None of the so-called solutions I've read here at Mozilla Support--regarding the playing of videos--has worked.

Why Mozilla-Developer-Network/MDN Needs Access Into My GitHub Or Google Account To Login !? & Why MDN Does Not Allow To Use Mozilla Account Based Login ? isn't it Violation Of Privacy ?

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

My computer shut down and with it went one tab. When I next opened firefox, onetab was not working at all. The icon was gone, everything was gone. I had to reset firefox completely and add all add ons again to get it working at all. I backed everything up before doing this. I have a tab hoarding problem and lost links to around 5000 tabs. I've got the previous session/old firefox data saved externally, plus old profiles. Is there any way to get my lost tabs back?

TLDR I need to extract my one tab data from my previous firefox folder which is saved separately. Please help.

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

Last night I had to re-install Firefox because I couldn't connect with internet

Since last night and up to now I've tried multiple solutions, however, the re-installed Firefox is not working as previously (just yesterday afternoon) - for example, on the left all my screens are partly hidden - also desktop doesn't show up, then search is not responding correctly and adding to the taskbar is practically as good as out of order. Unfortunately I've also detected that the re-installment come with demand of using - bing - which I do not use, as I'm very familiar with Firefox & Google which I've been using at least for over a decade an are very Happy with. However - bing - kept popping up, until finally today/afternoon the facility to dismiss - bing - suddenly & fanally was available so it got by-passed, although as much as possible, as it rears its presence still somehow every now & then. On top of all this, I also don't have Desktop

None of these discuss whether users should address lesser-known problems with Youtube recommendations, such as when they recommend seizure triggers which lack seizure warnings.

After removing and downloading Firefox again recently, I have begun to run into characters not displaying on websites. Nearly every site is subject to this issue, where characters display as little boxes with numbers inside them. After looking around, I have verified that I am allowing sites to specify their own font, and that I don't have any fonts blocked under about:config. I am running Firefox 80.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.

I would like to clear/delete ALL UNPINNED top sites thumbnails at once. Similar question was posted over three years ago... no solution was ever given. Having to go through them one at at time, clicking Delete from History, confirming, over and over and over, is a real pain. If the info is stored in a sql database table or even a json, it would at least be a quicker way! AND some of the thumbnails require multiple click to finally get rid of! Can you help?
