Firefox recently stopped playing embedded youtube videos on my phpBB forum site?

i keep the latest firefox and only recently showed up embedded videos play fine on Chrome and others

here's a link to my forum which includes an embedded Youtube video demonstrating the issue, does it play on your browser? (ONLY firefox has an issue on my computer, chrome, etc. work fine)

https://www.mchenrysoftware.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=2045

thanks for any tests/insight into what might be causing the issue

ADDITIONAL COMMENT: why don't you include a date on these posting? a lot of wasted time on old posts? and also need a 'Preview' on these before posting?

I've noticed that some websites will endlessly spam the console (in developer tools) with rubbish, and I would like to be able to block that from happening. I'm ignorant about this sort of stuff in general, and it confuses me how a website can even access my browser's console to begin with.

The latest example I came across which caused me to finally ask about it, was some strange JavaScript spam with some kind of < div > (had to edit this with spaces to show it in the post) structure containing over a thousand characters. This entire thing gets spammed in the console at a rate of a few every second. I recorded a short gif of it, which imgur seems to have converted into a video: https://i.imgur.com/dosMZjo.mp4

I've always used the "Always ask you where to save files" option when downloading. Recently (beginning of April 2022), files go directly to the Downloads folder. The "Always ask" option is still selected in Settings.

I've tried un-selecting and re-selecting, restarting Firefox, restarting my computer - basically every iteration of 'turn it off and on again' that I can think of.

The styles look astonishingly wrong, I really think it is a problem on my end, but cant figure out how to fix it, as you can see in the pictures, text is incorrectly sized and/or justified, color gradients are also weird looking, as well as sizing of many elements and tons of other things.

I have tried to completely remove Firefox from my system and reinstalling it, that did not seem to fix it. The reason I think is is a problem of mine is because i was playing with fonts (emojis weren't working on my system,not on Firefox tho, now they are in both)

I don't think the things i did with the fonts did anything to Firefox, since this problem only showed up on Firefox, but since the problem arrived just after a reboot while I was installing and removing the fonts, I think its important to mention.

To sum up I think the problem comes from my local configuration of Firefox, I probably did not delete it all before reinstalling, I am running (Arch btw) a current version of EndevourOS.

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

I have been unsuccessful in finding a solution in searches, so posting here. On one website I use, a machining forum, when I want to reply to a post, I have no text edit options ie bold, italic, emojis, etc. They are there, but grayed. They have worked previously for me. I don't know what changed like a setting on my part or an upgrade. I currently run Firefox version 99.01. I asked on the forum and other users have the same version and no problems. I can access the page with Chrome and on my phone (Android) and no problem so it is not my account. And on other forums, I ie different websites, I can use those functions. I have removed history cache and cookies, restarted Firefox and restarted the laptop.

Any suggestions?

There is a specific challenge that i am facing with Firefox and some of the solutions that i have tried is not helping me to resolve the issue.

What's the issue: There are double spaces issue in Firefox

Where is it : 1) Menu 1.1) It's in the Menu New Tab is seen to me as New Tab (more spaces are for demonstration only) 1.2) All the Menu items which have space are show with more then one space including

  1.2.1) File Menu -> New   Window (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.2) Edit Menu -> Select     All (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
  1.2.3) View-> Page     Style (and all the drop down menus with spaces)
   1.2.4) All the rest of the menus where ever there is a space there is a double space

2) URL : I type something in the URL and they are double spaced "this is test" will look like "this is test"

   THIS URL looks to be double spaced on firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1338204?page=2
   like below

3) Numbers in the browser :

   Any number displayed is double spaced in the browser output (most of the times, most of the web pages)
   
   

4) Bookmarks : All bookmarks are double spaced

5) Settings:

Settings: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled is still set to false but seems to have no effect toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets=true browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled=false


6) Reference: I have tried some suggestions below and they did not work for me.

Hi.

I need to print out my saved passwords. I have no cellphone to access, just my laptop and printer. I only use Firefox and no other browser. If my laptop gets hacked or breaks down, then I need to use someone else's computer to access my passwords in an emergency, and can't access my passwords to do so...so printing them out periodically is the smartest thing I can think of.

Help, anyone? This is pretty important to me. Thank you!

Since the Firefox 99 update loading some pages (for example, the Gmail sign-in page) using Firefox on my Linux Mint machine, that I'm running a VNC remote desktop session on, results in a crash.

Crash report ID: bp-5dc1e89d-dc1f-40f2-9dbe-7f4380220419

I've tried running Firefox in safe-mode and the crash doesn't happen, but turning off hardware acceleration, swapping to default themes, removing all extensions, and completely removing Firefox and the .mozilla folder and then re-installing Firefox have not changed the crash behaviour in the absence of the safe-mode flag.

I would appreciate help in identifying what other paths of investigation I can take.

Hello,

I have had a few websites not work properly with Firefox and have needed to open my backup browser (Avast Secure Browser) to use those websites.

Right now it is FedEx that comes to mind again as I kept checking for tracking of packages shipped to me since receiving the tracking info. I queries consistently returned the error message "Unfortunately we are unable to retrieve your tracking results at this time. Please try again later."

Thinking maybe the website was having issues or maintenance (and forgetting I had the same issue with FedEx website the last time I tried tracking there in Firefox), I kept "trying again later".

Then I opened my Avast browser and pasted the same url there and, sure enough, received this report on the display:

Travel History Date or Time City & State Status Monday, April 18, 2022 9:47 PM SPARROWS POINT, MD Departed FedEx location Sunday, April 17, 2022 1:49 PM Shipment information sent to FedEx

I have tried disabling the extension NoScript as well as turning off the "Enhanced tracking protection" and allowing permissions for the FedEx site with no improvement.

I copied and pasted the RAW data as well as the text version from the "about:support" page to send you.

Any suggestions to fix this?

Thank you, Keith McNabb

Hello. Since I use the bookmark bar and fullscreen mode a lot, I would like to be able to see the bookmark bar in fullscreen, not on every tab, but only in a new (empty) tab, so that I can avoid disabling fullscreen to access the bookmark bar and at the same time not having any part of the interface visible unless I'm in a new tab.
