Hi, first of thanks for reading and possibly responding.

The issue I am having has been going on for a few days. In websites where youtube video's are embedded if I try and play the video on the said site it will load and display an error message An error occurred. Please try again later. If I visit the video on youtube, link provided in the video itself, then it plays just fine. Error is not restricted to one site but anything that embeds youtube videos.

I have also come across some strange youtube.com issues, when I am on the main website you get the thumbnails of video's but no time duration are displayed in the thumbnail, neither are the 3 dots where you can have one of the videos removed (not a big deal and maybe this was implemented a while ago I don't know tbh). When I play a video, as in visit the video page on youtube the side bar videos sometimes do and sometimes don't display time duration.

Please check attached image to see what I mean. Left is without said timecodes, right is what it almost should be.

What addons do I use: Ublock Origin is the only one worth noting but even without it the weird thing still occurs. I don't use any plug ins that correspond with youtube.

I am using the latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Things I have tried thus far to resolve it: - make sure Firefox is up to date - try with and without addblocker (Ublock) - remove Adobe flash entirely - refresh Firefox and clear all data and cookies 9tried this I think 3 times now, no change) - looked through older posts with similar issues but most links regarding html5 on youtube were 404 and sometimes the solution stated things like 'cause by some video helped addon' which I do not use or updating Flash

Am I the only one with this issue?

I accidentally set a frequent website I use to always open in the wrong container. I do get the prompt about 'would you like to open this container in [wrong container]' and I click the option not to do so while also having checked the box that says to remember this decision, but the check box seems to do nothing. I've checked the box countless times to no effect. I seem to have permanently created this state which is highly frustrating. I don't want this site opened in any container. I have a lot of sites I've configured in what I'm terming here "wrong container" (though it's the correct for those other sites), so I don't want to have to delete the entire container to fix this problem.

I've had other problems with Multi-Account Containers (such as, tabs I've closed coming back like zombies after restarting Firefox; or Firefox seeming to forget that certain tabs were in containers and the act of clicking their tab to place them in the correct container causes them first to reload in the default of no container), but for now my biggest issue is not being able to remove a website from the "always open in wrong container" list. Where is the list of websites per container stored? Is this somewhere in the about:config or in a raw, human-readable file on my filesystem somewhere? How can I fix my problem without having to delete the container entirely?

I'm running FF 82.0.2 (64-bit) with Multi-Account Containers version 7.2.0 on Manjaro Linux version 20.2

For some reason embedded videos on sites like the Washington Post and the New York Times no longer play in Firefox. I can click the triangular "play" icon and I see the spinning circle as if the video is loading but that never goes away and the window stays black. YouTube videos still play and I can still play videos on Netflix. If I load the same page in the Edge browser, the video plays fine. When I search Firefox Support all the help for video playback problems are old and don't apply to my situation (again, this used to work without issue). I'm running the latest version of FIrefox with Autoplay set to "Allow Ausio and Video" on WIndows 10.0.18363. Any ideas?

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.
