I am using Windows 10 Enterprise N, Version 21H2 and installed the Media Feature Pack through the Optional Features tab. But even though other browsers have picked up on that and can play e.g. Twitch streams etc. appropriately, while Firefox still shows the `this video is unavailable or not supported in this browser` error message.

Hi! I am hiding the toolbar when browsing web pages to maximize the screen spaces. However, when playing full-screen videos (all HTML5 videos), the lowest part of the video are missing. It seems like that part are squeezed out of the screen. If I uncheck the "hide toolbar" function, it fixed. See the lowest part of the attached image.

Honestly it seems that the Firefox development team does not care about the interests of users, currently I need to use 2 browsers because one of them does not have an option to create shortcuts to the sites I frequent

As you can see in the attached image of my old Overflow Menu, I had it customized with many buttons/extensions I often accessed throughout each day.

With the advent of FF ver 109, this functional flexibility has been completely lost. Now, there's no way to choose what buttons and to sort them in the Overflow Menu. In my view, an egregious loss of convenience and efficiency.

Please, bring back the full functionality of the previous Overflow Menu!!!

Hi there,

I upgraded my Mac Desktop OS to Ventura 13 yesterday and now my Firefox browser is not working. It opens very briefly and then the window closes immediately. The Firefox program is still open in my dock, but when I click on the icon, the Firefox window only opens for the briefest moment and then immediately closes again.

I tried to fix it: I have uninstalled and re-installed the latest version of Firefox twice and have rebooted my computer twice.

Has anyone has similar experiences and/or ideas for solutions?

Thank you!

People are having connection issues on firefox https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/x1um0o/browser_problems_after_1040_and_10401/

A fix for this is going to about:config

network.dns.disableIPv6 and set to true

Disabling ipv6 is a fix, but is this safe?

I think mozilla team should look into what exactly is making ipv6 cause connection issues.

I contacted my bank to find out why their site no longer worked with Firefox and they had me refresh my Firefox settings, and now I'm not able to log in to certain pages using my passwords. The login pages say either my username or password is incorrect but they're not. When I click on "Forgot password" and give my email address, it says they'll send me an email to reset my password, but the email never comes.

How can I get my old settings back?

Thanks

Hello Mozilla Support, Google sign-in pop-up persists after disabling it. I have searched the web for this solution, enacted them, but the problem persists even after I have turned off the feature in my Google account. (See my attached images.) Some posts have commented that the problem persists in the Firefox browser, but not in other browsers. Thank you for support.

Hello, No, this is not Mozilla Discourse forum, and this it not the place to ask this question, however, I do not have a choice.

I cleared all cookies in Firefox, and relaunched, and then I could not log back into the forum, there is only one button, (login/signup); for some reazon, I prompts me to create a new account, instead of login into the account that I already have.

I tried Firefox, I tried Brave, I tried Epiphany browser (Ubuntu). I can not log back in.

Logical next step is trying to contact Mozilla's discourt support, however, there is not a way to contact support, not an email, not a phone number, anywhere on the website. I only found an actual street address, for me to send a .... letter?. Is this on purpose?.

I do not mean to be a Karen, but, it is silly, So, can a gentle soul share an email address to the discord support team, so I can try to solve my issue appropiately?

Thank you.

ONCE AGAIN, I am having Hotmail issues through Firefox, and ONLY through Firefox!!! I had to go to PALE MOON AGAIN to use Hotmail. This is getting REALLY irritating. I can go to ANY OTHER website through Firefox with no issue, but Hotmaill? Oh no, of course not. Your damn browser refuses to cooperate and Hotmail just sits there for the past TWENTY-FOUR HOURS with a waiting symbol and stalls out, refusing to do ANYTHING to refresh the page, and when I try and open an email, Hotmail says, "We're sorry, we can't display that message right now." But when I use Pale Moon, NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!!!! FIx your damn browser to work with Hotmail CORRECTLY this is YOUR problem!!! Since it works FINE through Pale Moon the problem is OBVIOUSLY with YOU!!! I am so sick and tired of YOUR BROWSER stalling out and causing issues ALL THE TIME! DO SOMETHING!!!

When using "send tab to device", the submenu previously showed all synced devices, in my case, more than 10 devices. Recently it only shows 4 devices and there is no way to access the other ones. Is this broken or is it a recent change? If so, can I revert the behavior with a preference?

Under "manage devices", I still see all of my synced devices, they just don't show up in the "send to device" submenu.

After a long time, I've decided to reinstall Firefox on my PC. Upon installing it, I got the error "Your firefox profile cannot be loaded. it may be missing or inaccessible." I cannot start Firefox.

After looking online, I found this article on the support page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible

I tried opening the profile manager, but can't get to it since Firefox won't start. It also is not accessible through using "firefox.exe -P" in the run dialog box.

So then I followed the directions and found my existing profiles.ini which pointed to my profile file. Wondering if it got corrupted, I changed the file extension to profiles.iniold and moved the whole mozilla folder to my desktop. Firefox continued to give me the same error message.

Finally I uninstalled firefox, deleted the mozilla folder under %appdata%, deleted the Mozilla folder under %programdata%, and deleted any mention of Mozilla in regedit. I finally reinstalled a fresh copy of firefox... and I got the same profile cannot be loaded error.

Is there somewhere that I'm not seeing that needs to be deleted to finally get a fresh install? I don't care about the original profile and am happy to start from scratch, but have no idea what I can still do in order to get to that point. Any suggestions on what I can do to completely remove any remnants of the original install from years ago?

I'm planning my Spring and Summer travel season. On a recommendation, I tried to log into Costco Travel website. When I tried to log in using Firefox, the usual little circle of dots appears like the browser is trying to access the web site with no favorable results. It just keeps spinning and spinning. When I try to access the website using Microsoft Edge, the browser redirects me to the Microsoft website where I am prompted for a password. After getting the Edge website to like me, I get redirected again to the Costco Travel website and it works normally. When I log out and then try to log in using Firefox, I get the access issue again. It looks to me like Costco Travel needs some code from Microsoft Edge to work properly. Any ideas? I can always use Edge, but I prefer Firefox. Cheers! Paul
