Hello everyone,

I'm running Firefox 50.0.2 on Windows 8.1 64 bits. For a while now it seems that Firefox is displaying jaggy fonts, looks like it's not applying any antialiasing whatsoever.

Checked in Chrome and all fonts are displayed nicely and smooth.

What I've done so far, with no results: - Updated my graphics driver (nVidia Geforce GTX 850M) - Reinstalled Firefox - Adjusted ClearType text

I'm attaching 2 print screens, one with Firefox and one with Chrome. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

All of a sudden when I start Firefox I get a white screen, and the wheel just spins and spins. It never connects to the internet, while other programs like Internet Explorer connect just fine. I never get an error message along the lines "website not found" or anything like that: it just spins its wheels forever.

After some research here I found the Troubleshooting page and tried the "Restart with Add-ons Disabled." This did not work. Then I tried the "Refresh" button, and that _did_ work, but only for that session. The next time I started Firefox I was back to the problem described in the first paragraph.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Same deal. I did more research and found the Add-ons and Extensions page. I deleted a couple extensions flagged in red by virtue of uninstalling their parent programs and guess what? Same deal! Aaaargh! This is driving me nuts.

How can I get a totally clean reinstall, preserving my bookmarks. Any help appreciated.

Hi all -

I am using a 10 year old XP SP3 system for some legacy things and running FF 50.x. very nicely.

Let's face it, XP's days are past numbered. However, sites like CNET, CNN, etc. will not play the main video content. I've tried many of the articles and attempted fixes on this forum and understand that time is running out.

Is there some program or plug-in that can buy me some extra time or is it just going to be hit or miss? BBC's site works fine. It all depends on the website that is streaming the video.

How can I tell what format the video content is being streamed in?

I thought that Firefox would bring built-in compatibility by translating these new video formats so older systems can play them. Am I incorrect?

CNN Image attached to show example.

Any help appreciated and thanks! :)

The "check to see if my plugins are up to date" link is missing from my list of plugins, but it appears from the Firefox FAQ that the plugins still need to be checked for updates. Why isn't this link on the page listing my plugins anymore, and how can I check to see if they are up-to-date?

I appreciate any valuable information that can be supplied with links to the information source in advance.

Flash keeps crashing, with no other extension, in a pristine, vanilla Firefox, on all three machines I maintain. For the record, these are a custom LGA 775 Asus motherboard from about 6 years ago, a similarly old Dell Optiplex of a similar age, and a brand new HP Spectre x360. The graphics systems and their drivers have no similarities. Firefox just doesn't work with flash on these machines.

Forum questions about this keep recurring, and keep getting marked as solved, when they are clearly not! No solution is posted, just a flag for 'solved' which no one bothered to remove quicklu enough.

Is there a silver bullet for this that I am missing, or should I just uninstall Flash and rely on HTML5? Has Firefox stopped supporting Flash and I've missed it? Is there a clash between Java or another common pluggin? I can't find any dependencies like that when I try activating pluggins. If Flash is the only pluggin it crashes! I cannot even keep it running long enough to turn off the acceleration on the Adobe Flash page where you are supposed to right click to access options. Edge seems to work perfectly on the Flash sites I need to access, but I don't like not using Firefox.

Is there a fix, please???

Current Firefox. Windows 7. Youtube videos suddenly black, No change of settings. The thumbnails along the bottom if you fast forward or backward are fine. Audio is fine.

Videos embedded in news story from, say, CNN or NBC are fine. It's just YouTube videos.

Youtube Works fine in Chrome, but I don't want to use Chrome.

Done the whole clear cache, restart drill, no change. All plugins current and activated

Tried uploading that recommended Windows video pack for Win 7 and Windows said not compatible with my machine.

Please help, really don't want to have to mess with Chrome at the same time as Firefox.

Thanks.
