Twitch, Youtube Live, Netflix, Kick... it seems any live streaming platform cannot play. I am running Linux Mint 21.3, Kernel 5.15.0. They work on a different browsers, they all also work on Firefox my laptop, which is also on the same OS and Kernel.

I have tried everything: installed ffmpeg, installed unrestricted ubuntu codecs, refreshed firefox (twice), uninstalled/reinstalled firefox, ive tried without extensions, yet nothing.

Cant for the life of me figure it out, im not sure if its my PC or Firefox on this machine.

I used to be able to press Enter in the empty Firefox search bar to bring up the (DuckDuckGo) search page and enter my search from there. Don't ask me why I like doing that, but now after the latest Firefox update, 128.0, on my MacBook Air I can't do that anymore. I have to type in the search bar to bring up the search page.

I know it's a small thing but I wonder if it can be put back to the way it used to be.

I am having two problems, both related to downloading files only on Firefox, these issues don't occur on other browsers when downloading the same files.

The first issue is that when downloading a file from Google Drive, the download always fails. It opens up a menu asking me where to save the file but the files name is "download" with no extension, when starting the download it will fail. In the images below you can see what it looks like. This happens with most files on Google Drive, usually those larger than 50MB (a VERY rough estimate). Both in the default tab and in the container tabs I use.

The second issue is very similar, when downloading a file, this time from anywhere on the web, when asking me where to save the file, the name of the download is a string of random letters and numbers with no extension. When starting the download it fails because the name is too long, after renaming it to something shorter it still fails. I don't really have any sites I can give as examples because this problem only occurs randomly.

For both problems I have tried attaching the correct filename and extension but it still fails.

I am having issues signing in to the playstation store using firefox. It works on edge (although I have the same issue in ungoogled chromium). I have tried refreshing but that didn't work. I uninstalled it and deleted all mozilla folders in appdata, then tried again without signing in to my mozilla account on a fresh install but i'm still having the issue. It might be a windows configuration issue because I don't see why this would work on edge but not on firefox. I've tried disabling all cookie and tracking protection features but I still have the same issue.
