Whenever I open a youtube video, the player will be paused. All I have to do is click it to start, but that's mildly inconvenient enough to bother me. This issue is present when all of my plugins/extensions/addons are disabled as well. It does not occur if I use Chrome.

I went to some website that asked me to run Adobe Flash Player and now ever since I did the videos on youtube wont start playing until I click on them to. I want to set them so they start playing on their own again.

I tried turning on autoplay on youtube, but that didn't help. I tried going to the add-ons and changing to Always Activate, but that didn't work. I even tried Never Activate. I then looked at the Adobe Flash Player settings within the Control Panel, but nothing there helped.

I'm now considering uninstalling the program, but I'm confused, is it Adobe Flash Player that I need to uninstall or Adobe Shockwave Player? And, will this make it so videos don't play at all?

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

Dear Mozilla I have encountered the "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" error when trying to access google.com Unfortunately, Mozilla Support sites only explain the origin of the problem. No solution to solving the issue is given. I can't even proceed to the website accepting the risk. I have found other pages with suggested solutions but none worked. I tried deleting the Cert9.db file which didn't work. Other solution are for antivirus on windows which doesn't help since I run Ubuntu with no antivirus. I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thx in advance

I was tricked into downloading a fake flashplayer update that included the adware "pro search tip." I've been able to uninstall it from my other browsers and firefox and it doesn't appear anywhere on my machine. I also used sophos to scan my machine, which deleted it. But it still redirects my default search engine to itself in firefox.

I have https everywhere activated, and ad blocker as well.

Hi!

I just upgraded to windows10. I don't use a paid antivirus or security software so wanted to make sure I am using maximum security add-ons available. I would appreciate your advice.

1) What are the quintessential security and anti-virus add-ons recommendations? So far, I am using the following. Is it too much? Too less? AVAST online security Ghostery Ublock origin ad block plus phishwall IBM security Rapport

2) I read that I should keep add-ons minimum. Are there any cons in using multiple add-ons for same purpose? For example, can I use Ublock origin and Ghostery together as an anti-malware? Or would that diminish the efficacy of each extension?

3) Are the security add-ons one should use in Firefox and chrome more or less the same?

Thank you!!

I had no problem playing Netflix videos before FF 66. I'm now on FF 66.0.1. I disabled all add-ons, restarted FF to no avail. This issue MIGHT be DRM related since preview vids play correctly in Netflix. They aren't DRM controlled. The full videos, which are DRM controlled, do not play. 'Play DRM-Controlled Content' is checked in my FF settings. I can play full videos as expected in Chrome. I prefer not to for obvious reasons. The NF error code is F7701-1003. The msg is 'There appears to be a problem with Firefox which is preventing Netflix from starting playback'. I've gone through the steps that NF suggest for this issue. Doing that doesn't resolve the issue.

Firefox Developer Edition (67.0b5) is my default browser I'm running windows 10.

if Firefox is running and i click on a link in my email, Firefox will open a new tab and show the page. if Firefox is NOT running and I click on a link, Firefox will open a blank tab; I'll have to click the link again - without closing Firefox - for the page to show.

this behavior is fairly new - about 4 updates back.

thank you;
