I am working in an online class and we are asked to record videos in an online platform for school. When I go to hit the play button on anyone's video I get an error message. This does not happen in other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox. Is there a privacy or cookie setting that could be causing this to happen?

one of my google accounts, which I have been able to sign in through firefox for years, suddenly started giving me an error message after entering my email address on the google sign in page. I have another google account and I'm able to sign i using firefox just fine. The error message given is:

This browser or app may not be secure. Learn more Try using a different browser. If you’re already using a supported browser, you can refresh your screen and try again to sign in.

I'm using a windows 7 box and Firefox 85.0.2.

I'm able to sign in just fine when I use google chrome. I've cleared cache and data in the browser. I'm not sure what else to try. Any suggestions? Any other information I can provide to help identify the problem?

So, Firefox asking for my Primary password over and over but not accepting it when i enter it. When i also tried to follow the steps to remove/deactivate my Primary password by unchecking the "Use a Primary password" box, it again asks me to enter the Primary Password, but the box where i then enter it here wont let me enter my actual Primary password. I don't know if its because the password is too long or too many characters to enter there or what. but the "OK" box also remains greyed out and doesn't turn the bolder color where you would be able to click OK to remove your password. Please help!!

I recently reloaded Windows 10 on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and reinstalled Firefox (V87.0, 64 bit). I've noticed now that web pages that have been opened will oftentimes not refresh after they have been open for a certain amount of time (TBD). As an example, if I edit an event in my Cozi Calandar page, the activity indicator will spin and spin and never comlete the change. I have to close the tab, open a new one, and load Cozi in that and then edit the event. Another indicator of this problem is that , when I open a new tab, the images associated with the Firefox Pocket recommended stories do not load (and I suspect the list of stories is not refreshed). If I close Firefox and restart it, that will sometimes resolve the problem, but not always. I have tried running Firefox in SafeMode, but that does not resolve the problem. I have also Refreshed my installation of Firefox.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I go to my bank's website and try to sign on. There is one box for my ID. When I click on it, an option my my saved ID shows up and my saved ID is populated in the box. That's it (see picture 1). There should be ANOTHER box for my password, but it doesn't show up.

If I use MS Edge, I go to the website and click on the sign-in box. A pop-up appears with 2 boxes, one for my ID and the other for my password (see picture 2). This is how it USED to work in Firefox, but it hasn't for a good month.

I use Privacy Badger, Ghostery, and BitDefender Anti-tracking on this site. They are all turned off and I still have problems. Also, I have the "Block pop-up windows" box UNCHECKED in Permissions.

How do I get back the previous setup?

Firefox version 87.0 (64 bit).

For at least the last 2 months I have had issues trying to log in to Charles Schwab, at either of these pages-

https://client.schwab.com/Login/SignOn/CustomerCenterLogin.aspx https://www.schwab.com/public/schwab/client_home

I use Firefox to save my login and after completing the user and login fields and clicking "Log in" the login/password fields go blank and I get this error message in red-

"Feature temporarily unavailable"

Clearing cookies and cache, re-starting browser and entering password manually do not help. I can login just fine using Internet Explorer. I also can log in outside of business hours (late evening) after 2 or 3 tries, also can log in on a different PC with Firefox (configured the same).

I have the following plugins- uBlock, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and Ghostery- all of which are disabled for Schwab domains (schwab.com, client.schwab.com, lms.schwab.com).

Schwab's technical support figure there is something going wrong with Firefox but are unable to figure it out.

Any ideas? Thanks for helping.

This is on Firefox 87 Manjaro 21 (Linux)

Default theme is used.


According to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8k3sq4/firefox_updated_to_6001_and_the_search_box_is_no/ there's something wrong with userchrome.css in the profile but that file should be patched if that's the case.

Why this hasn't been patched since it's introduction in version 60 is beyond me.

April 8th, 2021

Dear FireFox,

I don't know where else to send this too as your contact us form/page is so complicated and I can't find an email address. You have a type on your page "https://monitor.firefox.com/remove-my-data", under "How do we remove it?". The paragraph below states "... It’s not available yet, but blick below if you are interested in finding out more." I believe "blick" should have been "click".

Thank you,

Also, my subject only needs to be four characters as I get this error message for my title "Ensure this value has at least 5 characters (it has 4)."

I lost some of my bookmarks (I have 19000) when my cat stepped on my keyboard. No problem i make a daily back-up of my bookmarks since they are so precious for me (Thousand of BM are related too my work) It's not the first time I restore and I never encountered any probleme before. This morning, I did the usual but FF crashed and I had to restart my computer a few time. At one point, and I have no clue why, it restored a part of the BM but not the pesonal bar which is the most important since that's where I keep my BM for my research work.

Is the file too big now (It's about 5 Mo) if so why am-i not advise by FF when I save? Otherwise what could be the source of my problem??

Thanks
