Firefox used to auto fill forms for me but lately it does not. On the rare occasion that it does (for one web site), it fills in one field at a time, not all at once like it used to. It does not fill in my address either.

I tried the usual troubleshooting without success. I went to settings, privacy & security, passwords, and made sure "fill usernames and passwords automatically" was checked. I went to the history section and made sure "remember form and search history" was checked. I went to the custom settings for history section and made sure that Firefox does not clear "form & search history" when it closes. For some reason,(I am in the US) I don't have a "forms and auto fill" section to scroll down too as some users suggest, nor do I have the "auto fill address" box to check or uncheck. Nor do I have a "saved addresses" button to check or uncheck or where I can supposedly add, edit, or delete an address.

I am running windows 11 and use Malewarebytes for my antivirus, although I can find no settings in the Malwarebytes suite that would impact Firefox's ability to auto fill forms. Any suggestions??

Previously, when I printed something from the internet, the current date always printed at the bottom of the page, which is what I wanted. That way I knew when I printed it for future use. Now, I can't get the date to print on anything from the internet. I'm using the same Epson WF2860 printer so nothing has changed with it. Can someone help me?

Issues with video buffering on Youtube specific to Firefox browser on PC

Greetings,

for the past few days I've been having issues with running videos on Youtube, specifically, with my current (speed-tested) 560 Mbps internet connection, videos on Youtube will stutter, or altogether stop to buffer, even though a big part of the video is already loaded according to the preload bar. Sometimes the preload bar will also just jump back to the current video time and start loading from there anew, and sometimes it will even stutter back and forth as if it has loaded about 30 seconds, but then the preload bar will jump back and forth 10 or 20 seconds really fast (flickering).

While that is happening with the preload bar, the video will either stutter for a second and continue, or audio will continue normally while video will freeze and then continue a few seconds later (skipping forward so it's in sync with audio) or it will altogether outright stop and start buffering (the circling indicator in the middle of the video) even though sometimes the entire video has already been fully preloaded, and the connection is still going strong.

I have tried reinstalling Chrome and on that browser that issue does not happen. On Firefox I have an Addblocker, but I have tried turning it off and even removing it from Firefox, as I hear there are issues with google allowing addblockers on browsers, but it made no difference.

I have a recording of the issue with and without the addblocker but it is a big file 159 MBs.

I hope you can provide any information on how to resolve this issue, as some videos on Youtube have been unwatchable these past few days. And I really don't want to switch back to Chrome, as I like and support what you are doing with an this independent browser.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

When I open Firefox. Firefox Will NOT open any websites. If I disable ublock origin then enable again Firefox works but I get all the ADS. What I have to do is: Close firefox and restart Firefox but then I get this message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." Sometimes I have to restart Firefox as many as 10 times before Firefox works. I got to the point where I stop after the second try and just switch to Brave browser.

Before: Firefox use 99%. Brave Use 1% Now: Firefox use 75%. Brave use 25%

An addon I downloaded added Smart Ad Block. It's been spontaneously redirecting Google to Bing and about:addons redirects to about:blank. The addons list will not appear so I can't remove any addons or extensions. I previously thought that Microsoft Co-Pilot was redirecting me. But I looked at the "Back" list. The redirect showed "search.smartadblock.net".

Recently this month, watching Youtube videos has been a total chore on Firefox. Every so often, when I load up a video from Youtube, I get a blank player with no video in it. Every other aspect of the page template loads properly, but the video is just not there. The only fix for this is to clear my cookies and it's annoying to have to do this every week just to watch Youtube videos.

I've tried using other Firefox Forks, and they've had the same issue. I've used other browsers, specifically Chromium ones, and have not run into the same issues as of yet. I've isolated the problem down to my cookies, as deleting just the cache doesn't do it. Resetting the browser doesn't do it. Clearing my search history doesn't do it. Disabling all my addons doesn't do it. Signing in and out of my Youtube account doesn't work either. Any combination of all these fixes doesn't make the problem go away. The only thing that I've found to work is clearing my cookies.

Is there a way I can fix this? Please let me know ASAP.

Hello,

I had a Firefox update last night and I now have version 121. I usually look at a French site so I click on the translate symbol on the toolbar - fine. But this no longer works - the "en" appears but the page is still in French. If I click on Menu then Translate....... just the same. This has only just happened so must be a problem with the new update?

TIA

For good measure, would someone please send me an image (snip& sketch?) of the address bar showing what this looks like. First time posting so I don't even know if one can attach or include images in a reply.
