So, I use Fn + F7 which should stop or play the last active audio source.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it just refuses to work for one site at time, while the others work fine. So, for example, I have site x which plays audio, and site y which played audio some time ago, both windows open. Sometimes medias keys work as supposed, sometimes it doesn't work for site x for no apparent reason while it works for site y, or vice versa.

To get it to work, I have to spam it, move the tab around to the front (sometimes it works, it seems it gets priority, but it could be just coincidence) or completely close the tab and open another one with the same site. Whatever's causing this, it seems to be random, but it seems to be caused the most when having multiple tabs that can play audio, but not exclusively.

I just switched to Firefox and I don't really want to switch back, so it'd be great if any assistance is offered. On my last browser this wasn't the case.

This is what I've tried to solve the problem, but didn't work: - Go to about:preferences and turn off and then back on media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled - Open your Firefox settings (about:preferences); Uncheck Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface. It is at the end of the page; Restart Firefox; Check that setting again


Additional information: - Here's the site that causes me trouble the most (this is a YouTube playlist loader for big playlists): https://youtube-playlist-randomizer.bitbucket.io/ - I use Windows 11

I get the message:- Oops... It looks like something is not right

If you are seeing this page it is because your browser has failed some security checks. You may still be able to browse our site to find the feature or store you're looking for.

The Tesco website works OK with Edge on the same machine and Firefox 127.0 on another machine. I think this is a known problem is there a fix/work around?

Hey guys. Just bought a new pc with a RTX 4070 ti super GPU. FF is my browser, and when i google i see VSR is supported in FF. But watching videos in FF does not activate RTX VSR, it stays inactive in the Nvidea control panel.

When i use Chrome browser it works as it is supposed to, it says active and i can see the video quality is improved. Is the feature just broken in FF at the moment, or is there some settings i can change in FF to make it work today?

(i checked about:config and gfx.webrender.overlay-vp-super-resolution is set to true)

My PC uses Windowss 11 and I'm on Mozilla. My security programs are Malwarebytes Premium, Windows Defender.Security, and Acronis. There is an Extension called, 'Protect My Choices'. Love It! I have it on all my Browsers. It keeps alot of junk off from my PC. In all my other Browsers, in the Extension details it states "Automatically allow access on the following sites:" I just don't move the button over to on, and the Extension keeps all that junk off from my PC. In Firefox, the above statment and the botton is absent, and all that junk is allowed onto Firefox (Yikes!). I went through Mozilla's Help, Troubleshotting, and Search. I haven't been able to find any clue as to how I can get this Extension to work in Firefox. Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so for your time and consideraton of my sad saga

Hi everyone,

Firefox started becoming extremly slow on certain websites, which I have bookmarked. It goes through periods of that. One it was because of a plug in, other times I would think it was a virus of my internet provider slowing it down. But it became really slow this week, and I started noticing what it says on bottom of left screen when it's loading.

I kept seeing "contacting googleadmanager.com, read.tags.tigcdn.com, contacting highfalutinhoney.com." There were other various ones that have started read.tags, but those were the main ones I thought it was a virus, and kept doing virus scans with Norton, Malwarebytes, and making sure all software and computer, was updated. The only thing that helped was deleting profile in the profile folder on Mozilla and deleting it on my computer, and redoing all settings, with nothing imported.

It hasn't been slow in awhile. The only thing I can think of is I went on google maps, and saved a bookmark of a place on Firefox, and the offending website that was really slow was also bookmarked. Is it possible because I added a google bookmark, it installed on my brower tracking cookies? I set to have the settings to strict for my browser, never remember history, and use duckduckgo for search, except when I went on google maps this week on a private tab and then bookmarked a page from google.

If anyone knows how this happens, I would really appreciate it :} I don't know much about the technical stuff for computers. I'm just a basic user.

Thank you

Can I get support for THIS website on this website....?

Either way, for some strange reason, a handful of the buttons or text on my screen is displaying in another language (attempting to right click and translate says it's Galician..?) while the rest of it is in English. Not sure what's causing that. I can only read English, the only language set on my browser (or even my computer in general) is English (US).

So, I've switched to Firefox as my main browser (I was using it before, but as a secondary option) and I've spotted this native extension called Pocket.

When I pressed it, I was on YouTube Music already, so it automatically saved that url. Now, the reason of contacting support is more of concern than anything. When I pressed it, a weird message has been attached to it, so I am wondering why, as it is confusing to say the least. I've attached a screenshot with the saves, which also has the weird message and YouTube for comparison next to it.

Thanks.
