After a recent update to version 63.0, videos with maximum audio automatically start. This problem is especially acute with CNN.com. I will not tolerate this problem and either must find away to immediately prevent it or, undesirably, switch to another browser.

How do I stop video's from automatically starting?

Thank you.

Problem appeared 5-6 days ago.Runing windows 8.01,Kaspersky internet security(for several years had no problem with it). In Google Chrome and on i Phone,that issue does not exist (yet). Other web pages still have no souch problem(to be precise I'm not having that kind of problem :ONLY WITH gmail.com  ! )

What might be the cause , and how to solve it. Did Google change something,so that earlier versions of firefox do not work with gmail anymore (keeping the 56.0.2 because of Ant video downloader)

THANK YOU FOR THE ANSWER AND HELP IN ADVANCE !!!

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?

Firefox Quantum 63.0.1 (64-bit) greys out credit union website (https://www.ucu.org/), it is impossible to click any links or to fill in the login box. This problem began after latest update to 0.1. Restarting Firefox with all add-ons disabled makes no difference. I can still access the website with Internet Explorer. I have tried all the solutions I could find on the support pages, but nothing seems to work. Firefox has no problems with any other websites.

I am a web application developer. My application is using open authentication. As part of the login process the application stores information in the session storage of the browser. Then the user is redirected to a login page. When, after a successful login, the user is redirected back, the information in the session storage is gone. The same problem when I use local storage.

This problem only occurs with the setting: Never remember history.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Other browsers do not have this behavior.

Hello,

since the last update (v63.0, Windows) I have an issue that makes Firefox not usable. I hope you can help me.

Every time I open a new webpage, over a hyperlink or manually, Firefox takes 5-8 seconds until it starts to load the page. It seems like Firefox does nearly nothing at this point, there is no traffic going out, no CPU usage etc. There is also no status message in the bottom left corner like "Waiting for https://foobar.com...". After 5-8 seconds Firefox starts to load the page and then it goes very fast. This makes it impossible to use Firefox, because normal activities take a lot of time, because every click takes 5-8 seconds. On chrome on the same PC everything is OK.

I already did nearly everything to reset and clear my Firefox installation, I reinstalled and deleted the Mozilla folder in the AppData directory, the problem still persists. My colleague has the same issue since this update, so it's not only my PC.

I hope you can help me.

Title pretty much covers it: When I try to download .exe files Firefox says "Unknown time remaining - 0 bytes (0 bytes/sec)"

I've already tried all the tips suggested here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_check-the-downloads-panel-for-blocked-downloads But none of them worked.

The only antivirus software I have installed is Windows defender. I have done a bunch of Firefox refreshes, but to no avail. And I did a fresh install of windows just days ago. I also have a lot of add-ons installed, but I was already having this issue the first time I started Firefox so it can't be them.

The issue seems to be limited to .exe files, but I'm not sure about that.

I've started making some promotional videos for my website recently and me not being the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computer tech, I ask a lot of questions first before I plunge in.

Now the problem I have here is as seen with some other questions that my browser does not support any of the video formats etc etc, giving me an html 5 error.

My software is Camtasia Studio 8, the exact same as one of my friends use, I had to ask him what format do I use for uploading to Youtube, he said to leave it as the default which was MP4 720p, which I did. After uploading was complete on youtube I got the error message; totally bizarre really because I can see videos he has made quite well, with the same settings. Generally I can see 99% of videos on youtube. (although I cannot see any at all on Dailymotion, but that isn't an issue)

My Browser is Firefox 52.9.0, my operating system is Windows XP.

Immediatly after upgrading FF to Quantum every click has a 3 to 10 seconds delay until a site finally starts loading. Since I am "working" in the web, that way FF is completly useless. Is there anyone else out there having the same problem? Or someone who had and got it solved?

As Quantum is advertising performance and visual improvements for Windows users, like: "Moved the build infrastructure of Firefox on Windows to the Clang toolchain, bringing important performance gains", I can smell the smoke, where my performance problems could result from..

Unbelievable, but I had to install Chrome in the meantime to be able to work on.

Any help appreciated, Marv.

For firefox 63, when I drag-and-drop URL or text into address bar, firefox open the URL or search text with the default search engine immediately.

For pre-quantum versions, when I drag-and-drop URL or text into address bar, I have chance to modify the URL or search phrase or add special char (^ * # @ etc...) to narrow the search result. On the other hand, if I want to open a URL or the default search engine immediately, I can drag-and-drop the URL or search phrase onto a tab.

I like the old behavior more. Is there any way to turn back the behavior of address bar to the same as pre-quantum versions?
