With this new update, I am now connected immediately to an Internet website, which is not how I previously had FireFox setup. I wish to have FireFox open up a page where I can select which Webpage that I regularly use or have the possibility to find a new webpage. I use to have Yahoo.com as one of the selections that I was able to make in the past, but for some reason FireFox has refused all efforts by me to get Yahoo.com included. How is it done? My past history is hidden so that I can't get to websites that I use quite often.

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian

I have the about:config autoplay set to "1" as you are supposed to, but when Firefox updated the other day autoplay has been enabled again. I have downloaded an add-on to try and block them, but I want to know why we can't block them ourselves, or why setting the about:config autoplay to "1" no longer works.

Each time Firefox is updated I keep getting Firefox Not Responding, and this happens EACH time there is an update. Refresh does not help. New tabs open up very slowly AFTER getting Not Responding. Changed performance settings with no change. I do not have any add-on. This is truly very disruptive. If I could figure out how to import all of my saved web pages I would stop using Firefox and use Edge. As of today I HAVE NOT received any answers on how to correct this problem from Mozilla

Firefox 66 (macOS) reverting to playing YouTube videos automatically

I finally some months ago had managed to stop Firefox 63 (plus 64 and 65) from playing videos (i. e. on YouTube) automatically. In the course of finding the solution for this I had been told here in the forum that "no autoplay" would become the default in a future version of Firefox.

One or two days ago I then read that Firefox 66 would finally do this. Great. However, after updating to Firefox 66 videos on YouTube play again (unlike in my Firefox 65 with modified settings) automatically and with sound - blissfully ignoring the setting "Block websites from automatically playing sound" in the Firefox preferences.

With all due respect: Is this a joke? It was possible before to disable autoplay, now not anymore - what's the progress here? What is good about disabling the disabling of autoplay? And, no, youtube.com is not in my exceptions list (nothing is).

How can this be fixed?

I just downloaded and installed Firefox because I'm not thrilled with chrome. One major thing I'm trying to solve is getting the warnings for not secure (http) sites. I spend all day logging into network devices and I'm so sick of all the warning. I know the sites (IP addresses) I go to don't have security certificates and i don't wanna hear about it. I just wanna go straight to the site.  :) Is there a way to get rid of these warnings? I've tried about:config security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled and changing it to false. That didn't work.

There are several questions about this. I've opened my own on this very issue several months back.

Title says it all. Bookmarks don't stay sorted at all.

Sorting by the bar, or through the Library button, doesn't make them stay. Signing out of my profile, removing it, and signing back in doesn't fix it.

Bookmarks will become jumbled at random. Could be every ten minutes, or sessions between, say, work and home.

The heck is going on?

Suddenly the links in aol emails stopped working. Nothing happens when I click on them. I have looked at the help which said to make sure default browser is set (is Firefox), check extensions (I have none) and other stuff I don't understand. What could be wrong? This has worked fine for years! I have Windows 7 Home. Firefox is up to date.

If anyone would like to help a novice - WIN7: I just refreshed FF after attempting to remove malware. (I did NOT perform"system restore") But now (of course), there's even more adware, including very common one that I've encountered previously ("Adpoint"?). (1) Is it possible that the refresh allowed new adware, or? (2) Can anyone point me in the right direction to again attempt to manually delete adware? (I have Malwarebytes, but clearly it has failed to prevent and/or eliminate various adware I'm plagued with) (This attempt to delete adware was a dismal failure because I've obviously allowed new adware; I've done others in the past with the same, or partially-successful results...) Thank you to any kind soul who can render constructive aid!

I already had a sync account and knew the password, but it would not accept the password and then forced me to take a chance on losing data by creating a new sync account. So, I played the game and created a new sync account using the old password as the new password. Really stupid bug of your own making. Better not have lost anything, or it is off to Chrome for good.

I've read other posts seemingly related to this and starting in safe mode and blah, blah. This has to be simple. Step one, what? the menu at the extreme right of the page that looks like an equal sign but with 3 bars? (Options, settings, sync, etc). Then what? This is a setting related to adobe and apparently its flash player, but what to do about it is extremely unclear. Background: Attempting to watch streamed content at major media outlet website, nothing abnormal, not gaming, etc. etc. Anecdotally, this worked before, but I can't prove it. This works just fine in IExplorer except for all its slowness and buffering----meaning, once asking to view live content, once finding and clicking at website on the users cable or satellite provider, the above error does not occur and the next screen one is directed to is that requesting user and password for your cable or satellite account. Once entering that data, poof, up pops the live content. So, bottom line, this isn't adobe (because it 'works' with IE), this isn't the device (because it 'works' via other method), this is a setting somewhere in Mozilla. Please advise.
