Hi !

Ever since I received my bluetooth headphones (ATH-SR50BT), I've had a problem with the sound. Whenever I pause a video or kill the tab it's in (even if the video is not playing) all the sounds of my computer are muted. Simply changing my sound output and going back to my headphone resume the other sounds.

I've tried solutions for Windows and the headphone without success, and then found solutions that appear to work for Chrome (https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/8894867?hl=en&msgid=14396047) and Spotify (https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Pausing-Spotify-Playback-quot-Mutes-quot-ALL-Audio-Playback-On/m-p/4551102/highlight/true#M64084), hence why I decided to search for a Firefox fix.

Could someone help me ?

Firefox is up to date (v81.0) and running on a modern up to date Win 10 Pro laptop, I've cleared all my browser history and rebooted but without success. The same web page works without problem in Edge and Chrome but in Firefox it will only work in a private window.

Hi, I created a new profile because of crashes. I have Firefox version 81.0.1 (64-bit). I have Ramdisk but I cannot edit anymore the cache location in browser.cache.disk.parent_directory. I can only toggle true-false but can't add the ramdisk location. Aren't we allowed anymore to use a ramdisk for cache?

I use firefox on Mac OS 10.14.6. Every time I quit firefox (Stopping the program, not simply closing all windows) everything is reset to defaults. For all intents and purposes, it's as though I deleted and re-installed firefox every time I quit out of it. Bookmarks are removed, and any default bookmarks I removed are re-instated. It also opens up the set-up and privacy web pages that it does for the first time when you open it. None of the preference files are locked, it's set to remember history and I'm not permanently in private browsing, it's not even supposed to delete cookies. It's been like this since the moment I installed it; refreshing firefox changes nothing, uninstalling and reinstalling it also changes nothing. The only thing that stays the same is that my computer keeps firefox as my default browser.

Recently Firefox asked me to close so it could restart and install an update, and when it came back, it wasn't properly displaying a number of character sets for which I have the proper fonts installed. Sorry for the vagueness as to when this was, but I'm not sure. The attached table of letters from Wikipedia's article on the Phoenician alphabet gives a great illustration of the problem I'm having. All of these characters used to display.

The fonts work fine outside of Firefox. But the problem isn't limited to Wikipedia, as shown in the next screenshot from Tatoeba. And there are other, non-Semitic letters that I've also suddenly started having problems with - I think they're all the kind that a typical Unicode font might not support, leading me to wonder if Firefox is properly looking for another font, and it doesn't seem so, but I've had difficulty trying to fix this in settings and haven't found any threads here or elsewhere about how I might do so.

Hello, I just restarted my PC after a Windows 10 update (Windows Update). Launching Firefox from the task bar no longer worked (link removed). So I launched Firefox from the start menu. A completely blank version of Firefox appeared on the screen, as if I had just installed it. No more favorites, no more extensions, no more customization. All Firefox installation files in the AppData directory are dated today. How can a Windows update remove a Firefox installation? Is it possible to recover favorites and bookmarks? Thank you for your answers. Regards,

Honestly, I have no idea how to describe it. I loved how when I played a video on Firefox, it wouldn't pop up with that annoying video title whenever I changed my volume. Now, when I'm watching a video or playing audio, this happens. And, it doesn't even get it right most of the time! Like for example, it does this instead! That's not even the page I'm on!

Is there any way for me to get rid of this? Thanks

Today I got what I've seen described as the "Facebook White Screen of Death". I've tried: Reload Clear Facebook cookies (which implies logging back in) Clear site data Restart in Safe Mode None of these things make any difference. Still get only a white screen. Facebook works fine in the Chrome browser and in the Android app, so it must be a Firefox-specific issue, in my case. This is Firefox 81.0.2 under Ubuntu 20.04 The problem only started today. I've used Facebook with Firefox for years without problem.

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.

Need help configuring Firefox exceptions for Cookies and Other site Data so sites like the NY Times can remember me so I don't have to log-in to them multiple times per day.

I've even deleted Firefox and started over, but that did not resolve the issue.

I need an expert in this to help me as I'm just not getting it...though I have tried many different configurations of FireFox's settings.

Thanks
