I have had AddBlockPlus installed for years blocking ALL adds ! I have lately seen adds before I can see videos in YouTube ! I use FireFox in latest update - automatic updates itself.

I have tried to UN-install and then RE_install AdblockPlus with no luck - I stille on some videos have adds - one or even two - before I can see the video !

If I wait for a while to start the video sometimes the adds disappears and I can see the video.

I beleave it has to do with updating Windows to 20H2 - because I think I have got the problem after that update.

What can I do to get these adds til Hell ?

I have noticed that my Firefox browser has become so slow that it is nearly unusable.

I have noticed that Mozilla has been offering their VPN for $5/month. Has the company slowed down the browser to sell this feature?

Or is there something in the Microsoft updates that have slowed down the browser.

I really like Firefox but I have reverted Chrome simply to get my work done without waiting for Firefox to load. I really am not a big fan of Google and I really find Microsoft to be, well, Microsoft.

Good day,

since yesterday the Evenote Web Clipper stopped working. When reinstalling the web clipper I get the regular screen:

"Welcome to Evernote Web Clipper!" where you have to confirm to enable web clipper. When clicking on "Allow" nothing happens. At the same time occasionally I got the message the Firefox was not directed to Evernote in teh right way.

What have I tried thus far - without positive outcome: - disabling and then enabling the web clipper in Firefox preferences - deleting and re-installing the web clipper - deleting Firefox, re-install Firefox and then re-install the web clipper

The web clipper is functioning fine under Safari.

May it be that the change of privacy policy by Evernote (dus May 15) has something to do with it ?

Thank you for your suggestions !


Best regards, René.

I just made a clean install of windows. It seems that firefox for some bizarre reason won't accept cookies from some sites.

For example at www.office.com, when I click "sing in" and I set up my credentials, I am still at the same "sign in" page. The problem can be easier understood in the following capture. (excuse the watermark)

I have the same issue with other sites, such as my bank, IRS, etc etc, making firefox practically unusable. Is there any fix for this?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hello,

My Firefox routinely shuts down while I'm using my 2018 Macbook Pro, and the problem began when I updated my IOS to Big Sur This is a systemic problem with non-native apps ever since installing Big Sur. Apple won't address the problem unless I confirm that my non-native apps are compatible with Big Sur. Can you please confirm the most updated version of the Firefox Browser is compatible with Apple's Big Sur IOS? Can you also let me know if other users have experienced problems and if there is any fix?

Full disclosure: I am trying to watch some NSFW content with Firefox in VR at 1440p.

The video in question, I'm not sure I'm allowed to post, however there is massive lag and framedrop while watching, but I've tested on other browsers and there this lag/drop does not exist. I'm currently using an RTX 2070 Super with a 1440p monitor as well.

One of my uses of Firefox is as a tabbed reader. So I will have arxiv pdfs open, local pdfs etc. I would like to Sync these views across devices. It seems that Sync ignores any local tabs. For example file:////home/me/books/this_great_books.pdf

I suspect this is to avoid syncing settings files. But is there a simple path-based over-ride for this?

Or perhaps another extension would solve this.

While I easily downloaded Mozilla VPN on 2 of my PCs and an iPad, I cannot download it onto my Samsung 8 or my wife's Samsung 6 androids. I've tried it a number of times. I just tried uninstaling the Webroot security software on the phone, but still no luck. Every time I try to download it says "Pending", and the progress circle just goes around in circles.

I have checked the same video in chrome and this does not have the same behaviour. and the video plays full screen to the end.

It isn't only youtube videos as it happens on other sites with embedded video stream.
