On Youtube, there is a read more option for every comment that is not typed in English, or any other Anglo/Cyrillic/Latin language really, but the issue does not appear on Microsoft Edge nor any other browser so I'm wondering if there a fix to this as I can't tell which one actually has a read more and which ones are just a bug. Can you please tell me what is causing this and how to fix it? thanks.

I am still trying to get Firefox to download and install ESR updates with users that never use Firefox. I have GPOs in place and if I open Firefox it will update obviously. If I open Firefox for 5 seconds and close it I do see that the update downloads and eventually installs. I saw an article that states the "Requirements to Run" and wanted to clarify. See below "Firefox must have a default profile, and it must run using that profile at least once after the feature is enabled." Does this requirement mean that Firefox will never update unless it is opened at least once? Why is this a requirement if so. I have Chrome and Edge updating with ease without ever opening it. If I am missing something please help me. Thank you! I can provide anything else you need for clarification.

Moving from Windows to Linux and in the process moving from Chrome to Firefox. In Linux, there seems to be an issue where Firefox isn't recognizing that I have installed Chrome. No problem, I went into Windows to do the move instead. But since the data isn't saved and you have to have an instance of Firefox running (?) to actually sync, I decided to download Firefox on my iPhone, get my passwords from Chrome, then sync to my iPhone, boot back to Linux, then sync on Linux with the data on my iPhone, and somehow in the process locked myself out of logging into Firefox on my iPhone due to how many times I've had to log in to Firefox to figure out this convoluted and broken process. People are wanting to switch to Firefox due to ad blocking support, and this is a massive barrier to entry. Can we just fix importing from a csv file?

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

I have Firefox set to ask me whether to open or save a file, and then when saving to ask me where to save every time. I have noticed that Firefox tends to remember what folder I last saved something in from a specific site (aka, when I download something from dafont.com, it remembers that I saved previous downloads in the "Free fonts" folder and automatically loads that folder). That's convenient and I like this feature.

However, sometimes I need to save to lots of different folders from a site. (For example, if I download images from a stock image site, I want to save the image in the project folder of whichever project I'm working on.) The problem is that Firefox spits out a random folder I may have saved to before, with no rhyme or reason, even if I have just recently saved a bunch of files to one specific folder. For example, I am downloading ten images to save to Project Folder A. Downloading the first image brings up Project Folder B. I navigate to Project Folder A and save. I download the second image and it brings up Project Folder C. I navigate to Project Folder A and save. I download the second image and it brings up Project Folder D. Etc. etc.

Sometimes it does remember the current folder I'm using, but then it will randomly switch in the middle, which is incredibly annoying because I might not notice the switch and then later I can't find what I downloaded, only to eventually find it in a completely unrelated folder. (So for example, I download the first image to Project Folder A. I download the second image, and it brings up Project Folder A. I download the third and fourth images and it brings up Project Folder A. I download the fifth image and it brings up Project Folder E. I save without noticing, or I navigate back to Project Folder A.)

Is there a way to set Firefox to remember download locations for some sites, but to default to the last used for others? Or do I need to just turn the feature off entirely? And if so, how do I do that? (From googling, it does seem other people have had this problem, in 2012 and in 2017. Both were told to update to the latest version of Firefox, which is not helpful for me in 2022, or to modify the Boolean rules for the config setting browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite. I have no idea how to modify a Boolean rule.)

Here's the problem: over the past few days, every time I try to play a Youtube Short, it plays the wrong video, if it plays at all. As best I can tell, what's happening is that it's skipping to the end of the video I'm trying to play and cycling on to the next one.

Frankly, I dislike YT's Shorts format anyway, but some of my favorite content creators use them, so what you gonna do?

I tested it out on Edge, and there doesn't seem to be a problem there.

It doesn't seem to matter whether I try to play the video on YT itself or click an external link. The same results: I can't actually play the video I'm trying to see.

It's only been happening for a couple of days.

Copied from Fifefox:

Youtube switched to separate audio/video streaming technology for higher quality formats and no longer provides direct 720p (Since 24 September 2018)/1080p/mp3 streams. Converting these streams to downloadable formats for you needs powerful server infrastructure, therefore 1080p/mp3 downloading has been limited to PRO users. Read more at - https://videodroid.org/pro_upgrade.html. FREE users can download all formats in CACHE where some PRO users fetched the video/audio in past 24 hours, to test the feature you can try downloading popular videos.

If this is the case WHY should I use Firefox? There are other browsers!!!

I run my own DNS and its managed locally. And while I can move it back manually, I keep finding the setting changed. So I need to find out how I can get control of my machines, OR I have to yank FF from every machine at the house. What can I do to force the machines to use MY DNS and not bypass the security I have put in place.

Having to go to each machine and do this weekly is not a good idea.
