Since the last update videos will no longer play correctly. The video starts and I can hear the audio but I see no video. The content is there. If I hover over the playing time bar at the bottom of the video I can see stills of what would be that part of the video but no video as it plays. Same thing happens in You tube.

I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

Lately, Firefox unchecks the 'use autoscrolling' and 'play DRM-controlled content' options sometimes (but not every time) when it starts. Other settings don't seem to be affected. It does seem to unset both at once, never one or the other at a time.

I have begun using Firefox routinely on two computers, both signed into the same sync profile. My best guess is that maybe one profile is overwriting the other? Both of these options are set on the second system, but maybe there's something going wrong with the sync?

Thanks, Patrick

Is there any way to reorder the URL bar back to how it used to be in older versions of firefox?

It doesn't make any sense to prioritise google search over bookmarks.

Is it possible to go to the older style where search is at the bottom and only becomes the priority match when nothing else can be found.

"Search suggestions" are disabled. Autofill is also disabled. The problem also occurs on a fresh install inside a VM, so I doubt it has anything to do with userchrome/about:config

Thanks.

Starting around v98.x, every attempt to download a file (eg with "Save Link as") immediately result in a Failed message in the download list.

This happens despite the setting "Always ask where to save files", though it doesn't matter. The Failed message appears before I am asked where the file should be saved.

Downloads work if I log in as another user.

If I restart firefox with "-safe-mode", I can do downloads. But not if I then start in regular mode.

The problem started in late March or early April 2022.

Extensions: Facebook Container, GNOME Shell integration, Hide Private Mode, IP Address and Domain Information, NoScript, TreeStyle Tab, uBlock Origin

I frequently have difficulty when I need to make plain-test copies of web pages. These are pages that only allow "Select All" to select parts of pages, so that important parts of the pages cannot be selected, or so that a large number of select-and-copy cycles are required to copy the information on a webpage. The Firefox extensions that I have tried like the old "right to click" do not seem to help much. With old versions of Windows, I would use print-to-file for a generic plain-text printer, but that does not provide a readable file on Win 10.

I frequently find these problems on web pages with survey questions. This web page is a very simple example where multiple cycles of select-and-copy are required: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form People who have accounts on Meetup.com should see an egregious example on this page: https://www.meetup.com/account/interests/

Thanks for any help, Lloyd

Hi

When using addons such as "Enhancer for Youtube" (with the h264 option on) or "h264ify", after watching videos for a while, they start loading with a visual glitch that fixes itself after some seconds. It looks like if the image was blackwashed. It doesn't happen if I disable those addons, but videos don't look as good without them.

Example of the glitch

Any ideas of why it happens?

Dear Community, (developers)

A question for concentration. For a long time now I have lacked, and I am sure I'm not alone, one important function. It is to support the mode (browser version) with just 2 tabs.

You can develop products based on marketing analysis or you can be humanly and make good design for people.

Be more human, browser and product developers. You need to help users today. Be one of the first to provide a reasonable palette of solutions to maintain focus. This is the future.

Either Mozilla will do it, or someone else will.

Respectfully to Mozilla, your faithful, patiently waiting for real solutions user.


PS. Needs official solutions that will be under the control of all the private settings, good graphics and that I will trust. No one wants little-known apps from the store.

Firefox stopped working. If you open task manager, it shows there but you can't end the process. If you try to open it again, it just shows it's open again. I've tried all the troubleshooting steps and nothing works. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I have found that I can open it if I run my laptop in safe mode with network, but it won't run in normal mode. I have a new laptop and want to move all my Firefox data there. But if it won't open, I can't move it.
