Hi,

I had been using this addon: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../video-speed-control/] and I had no problems with it, until today when I went to increase the speed of a video I was watching, and it wouldn't work no matter what. Clicking to increase the video speed doesn't make the video go faster, as it should.

I uninstalled it and installed many other video speed controller addons, one by one, but none of them work at all either!

The video speed control had been working perfectly well up until now, and I hadn't modified any settings or anything else, that might cause it to stop working.

So how can I get this video speed control addon: [|https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-speed-control/] to work for me again? Help! I don't want to switch web browsers.

Thank you very much for your time and help, I really appreciate it!

I have an issue where Firefox is cutting off the lower half of each page (blank) when I print with reduced scale. It is an issue that only occurs in Firefox—I have tried another browser. I have tried three printers and it causes the issue on all of them. The issue occurs on all web pages I have tried. I have reset the print settings in Firefox, run Firefox in troubleshooting mode, and refreshed Firefox.

Print preview will show the pages correctly with reduced size, but when printed, the bottom half of each page is blank. However, in print preview, if I change the settings to only print the first page, the preview will then show the first page with the bottom half missing.

I am wondering if this problem is caused by the latest Windows update. That is the last change to the computer I am aware of before this printing problem occurred.

Anything else I can try to resolve this issue?

Hi all,

I am doing this online course and all lectures are online videos using Wistia platform. I have recently installed Linux Mint 20.2 and latest version of Firefox but the videos don't work. Page loads fine except the video where only a large grey box shows with no controls. This was also an issue when I was using Linux Mint 18.xx but at least it worked in Opera which I was also using at that time. Now it doesn't work in either Firefox or Opera. is this perhaps an HTML5 issue? Don't think Wistia are able to offer any support and neither is my course provider. Their response was 'this is weird, works fine on our computers'.

thanks in advance for any assistance

Hello. For searching with search engine I always use an advanced search providing options (never the address bar search engine suggestion of FF). Thus the engine suggestion, located on the 1st line of the drop-down list of suggestions, is just annoying due to its uselessness and its location before my helpful bookmarks and browsing history.

It's just a detail but the clearer the visual information are (without any interference, noise), the faster the right choice is made.

I tuned FF configuration as neatly as possible about this topic but the phenomenon persists. Privacy & security -> Address bar: 'Search engines' is unchecked. Search -> Search bar: 'Search bar in tool bar' is preferred to avoid it to operate in the type field (no option for no search at all).

           -> 'Provide search suggestions' is unchecked.
           -> 'Search Shortcuts' are unchecked for search engines.

Please see screen shots attached.

Could FF experts provide any help ? Regards. j-p

Ever since updating to the most recent version of Firefox, I cannot log into anything related to Google. I can enter my username and password but the "next" or "log in" button or whatever it's called doesn't work at all. The cursor remains as an "arrow" when you hover it over the appropriate button to login and never allows you to click on anything. It's like this regardless if I am logging into YouTube, Google, or Gmail. Other websites could be affected...I don't know. The only way I can access my accounts is to downgrade Firefox to version 90.0.1. Everything seemed to work fine before this last version. I've been using version 90.0.1 for a few days now out of desperation since the most recent version doesn't work. I tried updating just now and even though the update went fine, I still couldn't log in to YouTube or Google.

I just realized too that I cannot access my Microsoft account. When I try to log in, it accepts my credentials but then takes me to the Office 365 Login page as if I never logged in and not to my mailbox. This does not happen on Edge. I don't want to use Edge but between this and the problems with YouTube/Google, I am not seeing many options here.

I'm running Firefox on Windows 10 Pro v1809 64bit.

On a side note: Why does Firefox have to update so much? You guys update this thing and nothing's changed except at times like this when things don't work. That's the only difference I see. I wish you would just stop. Stop having updates every time we turn around---ESPECIALLY if nothing different is happening with the browser. I've used Firefox since it was in a version somewhere in the teens or twenties and honestly, I can't see many differences. This is very much true for the past 20 versions of the browser. I mean... we have 95 primary versions of a browser, not to mention the individual subversions. It's really a hassle.

I'm on firefox 90.0.1 on Mac OSX Big Sur 11.2.3. When I try to delete a site certificate that I have (that is about to expire), it appears deleted, but when I open the certificates page again it reappears. When I restart Firefox after deletion it reappears. When I delete cert9.db from my default profile after closing firefox, and then reopen, it still reappears. When I uninstall Firefox, delete the default profile folder from App Data and the Mozilla and Firefox folders from my caches, it still reappears (I also deleted the update folder).

I am doing sync between this mac, my phone, and another computer, but I ONLY have bookmarks, Add-ons, and history. Might the sync be also syncing my certificates?

Help/tips would be appreciated.

I am running FireFox 90.0.2 and it seems like every website is asking me to disable my AD Blocker. Does FireFox have a built in one??? I have clicked on the shield and disabled the Enhanced Tracking Protection but that has not helped at all. The only way I can get around the AD Blocker problem is to use MicroSoft Edge which I hate!! Help please.

I play cards at cardzmania.com using Firefox. If I exit Firefox and reload it, cardzmania remembers exactly where I was. Formerly, I could stop this by clearing the cache files at c:/users/user_name/AppData/Local/Temp andc:/users/user_name/AppData/Local/Mozilla. This no longer works. Even if I use Privazer to clear temporary Internet files, cardzmania remembers me.

In short, Mozilla is storing user data in a file I can't find and empty.

This disturbs me.

I'm not terribly concerned about cardzmania taking over my computer for nefarious purposes or spying on me, but the inability to find and delete files that permit cardzmania to remember who I am means other programs could do the same.

Problem with printing at reduced scale, did not notice it before a few days ago so could have been after a recent update. Am now using Firefox 90.0 for Linux Mint 19.3. Printing to US Letter size (which had been broken with "na_letter" being stuffed in to the config at one point, but I switched it back to "US Letter" and then it started working again a few months ago - Thank you).

I see some similar questions listed, so this may be simply adding information to something known:

Printing with "Fit to page fit" works fine, with correct preview. Print with scale set to 100% works fine, with correct preview.

Printing with scale set to less than 100% (say 70% or 80%) showed in the preview the page rescaled as expected. The actual printed output is also rescaled as expected, but the page size gets cropped at the right and bottom by what appears to be the same percentage, ending up with lost content. The bit that does print seems to match what is shown in the print preview perfectly, suggesting it would have been totally perfect if the print area had not been cropped along with reducing the text and image sizes.

I tried the "Print using the system dialogue" option, and the printed result had the same pathology.

Same problem also happens when I print to PDF. For this I tried doing the same thing twice, both scaled at 70%, and on comparing found that the preview in firefox had also become cropped a bit but not to the same extent. I did not notice any cropping for the first print to PDF, but now seem unable to get back to what I saw originally in the preview, with correct resizing and no cropping. Playing around some more with printing at 100% vs 70% vs 80% to "fit to page width", I seem to be getting changing crops happening each time in the preview for the reduced sizes.

But the preview and print are both still correct for 100% scaling and for "fit to page width".

Sample web page I used here was https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-shoulder-workout-for-better-posture?utm_source=pocket-newtab The screen shot shows the preview after the first reduced print to PDF, with no settings changed. The little bit of side cropping seen in the preview did not happen when I did the first print to PDF.

Trying to use the seach box in the centre of the Firefox homepage (google search engine) .. everything I type goes up to the address bar . Tried changing settings - I see there's a search box option in the 'tool bar' which looks to be up at the side of the address bar. cant understand why we need another one as well as the one in the centre.

Also by turning off suggestions and not choosing the 'search box option in the 'tool bar' , the address bar is now only accepting URLs so searching isnt working.

So ..1. Is the search box in the centre no use?

        2.  Does search work with all suggestions turned off?

I have many duplicate entries in the "Send Tab to Device" menu, which I believe are from old installs. This occurs on both desktop version of Firefox and Firefox Android.

The problem is they do not appear in https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services so I cannot remove them. Only the actual devices I am using appear there.

Any ideas?
