Hi, I've been trying to get Widevine to install on Firefox for a few weeks (,month+ maybe?) but after all this time I'm left with the message Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly. I've already tried reinstalling stuff, safe mode, enabling and disabling DRM and all the other stuff to help so at this point I'd just want to do it myself. Can't find any Widevine download or really any way on how to install it manually though, which is where I need assistance on, again I've already resigned to the fact that Widevine autoinstalling through firefox is broken and I'd rather try and do it myself manually. Thank you.

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

when I type a comment on youtube, the text often "lags", the letters appear all together after a while, if I try to send the comment I get an error, and if I try to subscribe a channel I cannot, instead I get prompted to login while I am already logged. This is going for months, right now the only fix seems to switch to Opera... Can you guys provide solutions to this?

So when I try to click on a youtube video, quite often it will go to a different video or a poll that is associated with someone I am subscribed to or have viewed previously. The only way I get around this is opening the video in a different tab.

I'm using MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 on an iMac with Firefox 86.0 and have trouble connecting to some sites unless I'm in Privacy Mode. I use Google or DuckDuckGo (preferred) as my search engine. When I do connect I have problems if I try to play a video. Example: I can connect to Cnet.com but I can't play any vids unless I reconnect in Privacy Mode. What can I adjust in Firefox to connect an play vids without using Privacy? Thanks, any help if greatly appreciated.

Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

Hello guys crtl + enter will open all websites starting by https! afaik many many many websites don't have installed SSL. So novice users should see "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" for them all? I do believe Potential Risk is Firefox and its dumb developers who made this stupid change itself! Anyway to fix this? or move away to Chrome? Thanks.

I've used FF Sync a few years now. On many devices. I even somehow gotten my wifes FF sync info mixed into mine. Super old user names/passwords going back 3 -4 old ones pop up in selection.

So that issue and one more. I have a new laptop, which seems to have the last of my saved sync stuff. Currently I logged out for fear that a recently installed FF on ubuntu which has nothing on it would wipe it. I also have FF on android phone.

Here's what I hope top do, even if it means deleting FF on ubuntu and android, so that only FF on my new laptop is the only survivor. I beleive the FF browser cloud has zero saved user name/password info, so I'm afraid to sign in on my new laptop FF and what I have on it, which is what I want on FF cloud will get wiped by FF cloud?

Help!!

I have an urgent problem. I am about to loose access to my existing primary and secondary emails, as i have been forced to try to change to a new email provider. I set up with Gmail and it was working fine until I updated windows on the 20th. Now I cannot log in I get the following error massage:

Corrupted Content Error The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?pli=1 has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched online and deleted my google cookies and cleared my cache without effect. I am getting desperate to get this fixed. My new ISP does not provide email addresses but I need two of them one for myself and one for my mother. I have been told that my existing emails my be deleted as early as 30th March 2021. I have been trying to get these new emails in place for nearly three months and I feel like this is the last straw.

I know I am using an old version of Firefox, but I need to keep my old style extensions as I use them to help me with my visual disability.

Yours Desperately, Kaelkitty
