I cannot watch a video on youtube when it is in the process of being live streamed. I remember a time when I was able to, years ago, but I can't any longer. I'm not sure what has changed. I found an article that says to install the optional update called "Windows Media Pack" in apps and features, but no app with that name exists. It was only a year old solution, so I'm unsure of what changed so significantly. I just installed another optional windows update, and also updated the browser, but still doesn't work.

Edition Windows 10 Home Version 21H2 Installed on ‎09-‎Jun-‎20 OS build 19044.1466 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0

Hi all :)

From a fresh Linux Debian Bullseye I try to connect to a local machine with Firefox (v97 64-bits) by its hostname (avahi server with default domain "local") with the port 6180 bound to a remote web service port (61 is the distant machine IP and 80 is the forwarded port).

When I want to open this URL : http://bionic.local:6180/ FF displays "We can't find this site ... Unable to connect to server at bionic.local ... check your network connection and firewall"

BUT ping bionic.local works perfectly and resolve the good IP address from the Chromium navigator the same URL works without a problem, I can open the distant web site.

This workaround works : add a static resolution in the /etc/hosts file : 192.168.0.71 bionic bionic.local => so FF works in the expected way for now ! But as I said this a workaround and a bad solution.

I supposed too the port was blocked because I accessed an unusual port. So I tried this without success.

How the hell make that FF v97 allows me to use an unusual port ? Or is it bound to the domain "local" which is no more accepted by FF ?

Thank you in advance for your help. With adelphity, lnj

Hi I have been using Firefox for years and have been using Gmail within Firefox for years also. The problem which started today is that when I went to open an email within Gmail the only thing I got was the title of the email. There was no message inside the email. If I try and forward the email, the message appears but only with the box to forward the email.

Here is a list of things I tried.

Restarted Firefox (no change Gmail not working properly) Restarted computer (no change Gmail not working properly) Looked up solutions online and did updates to Ad Block (no change Gmail not working properly) Disabled Adblock and uBlock (no change Gmail not working properly)

I can go into Gmail properly on my phone, through Chrome and through the Brave browser and it works fine. Firefox is my main browser and I really don’t want another browser to be open all the time just to access Gmail.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

I'm buying a new computer and I'm wondering is there a method/procedure that I can use to transfer the entire FF browser including settings, extensions, bookmarks, and passwords without having to reinstall all those items individually? I know I can save and import bookmarks but what about everything else? I look forward to anyone comments. Thanks

Hello,

I'm trying to sort bookmark folders by date. I followed some threads on-line, but its not saving. Am I missing something?

I'm going to Manage Bookmarks (see screenshot) i'm able to select a folder and click Views and it defaulted to 'unsorted' I select Sort by Added and the latest bookmarks in this area sort by latest on the TOP first. Perfect!

I exit out check bookmarks and they are still sorted in the reverse... meaning latest bookmark is still at the bottom and my very first bookmark in this folder is at the top.

Maybe its not designed this way? if so I don't see the reason to go under Managed Bookmarks and sort by anything if its not going to save that way.

Moral of the story trying to sort by date added in any folder not name (which is only thing I see when right clicking on any folder). I want latest saved bookmarks sorted from TOP down not latest's starting at the bottom.

Thanks

When joining a Zoom meeting hosted on the browser rather than installed Zoom app, my speakers are not working and the troubleshooting error messages says the browser is blocking zoom from accessing the speakers. I can't find a setting in Firefox preferences to block/allow it. Speakers work on YouTube/Vimeo with no problems (speaker volume 100% and not muted). Speakers had been working with Zoom until a couple weeks ago. I don't want to install the Zoom app just because Google hates privacy and and I don't want to help them own my privacy anymore than I must. I use DuckDuckGo for the default search engine, have Ghostery for an Extension/add-on, and have the Firefox browser set for private window always. I have tried various cookie settings for the Zoom meetings and even the dreaded "accept all cookies" and have Firefox cookie handling set to Standard, with deleting all cookies and history upon exit. I am on 64-bit Windows 10 up to date as of 2/16/22, Dell computer updated to same date, and latest update of Firefox 2/18/22. I have done a number of web searches and not finding the speaker topic or error message other than three unanswered help requests from others with the same problem dated from July-Sept 2021.

I am running Ubuntu 20.04, the old computer was on Ubuntu 18.04.

Can these things be restored, and if so what do I need to do?

Hello,

How do I disable or remove these autofill searches that I do not use that appear at the very top. They keep appearing such as searching up gamestop it goes to gamefaq first or searching maps to get google maps, it gives my local city website map instead.

These have become a nuisance as I never visit these sites.

Thanks!

I have two PDFs that I designed and uploaded to our website, but the headline in both displays with clipped characters in Firefox. Different fonts were used in both and the issue is the same. I even tried adding more tracking then re-uploading, the issue persists.

I checked in other browsers and the text displays as intended. The attached screenshots show the issue in Firefox, compared to how it should look (viewed in Chrome).

It's only this one line of text that is affected and I don't know why.
