Closing as duplicate. Please continue with the original /questions/1159851 ~J99

I don't know how to fully explain exactly what's happening here, except to say that Firefox is now always on top of everything, even when in a reduced-sized window, and has to be fully minimized to use another window.

None of the suggested answers or responses have worked, or are relevant to this issue from my point of view.

Am I going to have to start using another browser, or is there a legitimate setting that can be altered to stop this behavior that just suddenly started a few days ago?

The inspect element tool of Firefox browser (version) is not showing the <pre> tag and it's contents on YouTube pages. The pre tag I am referring to is as follows (screenshot taken on torch browser): (Red arrow indicates pre tag, blue arrow indicates script tag common to firefox and torch) It is the child of body tag. The inspect element for the same page on firefox looks like this: As we can see there is not pre tag. I 'googled' the problem but did not find results that explicitly explained the matter. I also checked this on Firefox developer latest version and Firefox beta latest version but the YouTube pre tag is not appearing in any of these. Why is it not appearing in Firefox's inspect element if it is appearing in chrome's inspect element? Is it a bug? If not then where else can I find the contents of that pre tag in Firefox's inspect element? Thanks a lot.

Got the message from Adobe this morning to update, tried and failed. Following their help links it shows how to check that the plugin is enabled in FF. But where it says you should choose Always Activate, mine is greyed out. It says that it has been blocked due to vulnerabilities in older versions and gives alink to update. Tried again from that route and just get the same failed installation error message.

So it seems it is blocked because old versions are vulnerable, but that stops me from updating? My PC is quite old, I'm on Windows Vista 32 bit. Any help appreciated :)

Hi there Mozilla Support:

The other day I'm been having issues with FF. It's mainly focused on Facebook videos NOT playing at all but just loading and sometimes just blank. The issue is just Facebook videos because if I go to youtube then all videos will still work. I've done countless troubleshooting steps which is why I'm here now:) Anyhow this is what I've done so far:

1)Disabled ALL FF addons as well as individual addons to seclude any incompatibilities but still no videos

2)Restarted FF in safe mode AND REFRESH FIREFOX but still no success

3)I'm assuming that Adobe Flash could be the culprit however I've COMPLETELY UNINSTALLED (PROPER UNINSTALLATION THAT I FOLLOWED ON ADOBE'S WEBSITE) flash and reinstalled Version 17, 21, 23 and the most recent version of FLASH 25.0.0.71 but still no answer

4) Updated my Nvidia Display driver from Nvidia's site but still no answer

5)Downloaded Flash Video player (ADD ON THAT FORCES SITE TO PLAY MEDIA WITH FLASH) from Mozilla add on site, installed, but still no Facebook videos loading

I'm still running XPSP3 but unfortunately based on my work software, XP is only compatible with that software which is why I'm still using the OS. Obviously for browser purposes I've ALWAYS USED FF since I was in high school:) I just love it in terms of speed and functionality however this past week has been a drag with Facebook videos not loading. I DO NOT want to switch to another browser. I still believe there's a light at the end of the tunnel with FF:)

NOTE: I'm not sure if this contributes to the problem however a couple of days before I did a few things:

a)There was the WannaCry ransomware bug (don't worry I wasn't affected by it) and I did get a patch from Microsoft for my XP machine. I installed it and it was successfully installed in my program list. I also tried tampering with the media plugins in FF's about:config. However I thought if I refreshed FF then this should set all media plugins and others to their DEFAULT values.


Hi cor-el:

I went to the prompt you told me to do and kinda found something interesting. Every time I play a FB video and go to Tools> Web Developer > Web Console, it comes up with an error message saying something about .mp4 playback.

This is weird because I recently installed ALL codecs from K-Lite codec pack which I'm assuming includes codecs such as .mp4, .ogg, .webm, etc., Please find an attached pic of the problem and get back to me asap as I've not been able to view ANY videos,


Hi Cor-el:

I also tried the second solution you told me to do (Primetime Content Decryption Module) however the videos still don't play.

Another thing I tried was to update to the LATEST version of FF for WinXP which I believe is the ESR version 52. Still after going to Facebook and logging into my account the videos just go blank with the error shown in the attached pic.

As a temp fix I recently installed Chrome. Apparently Chrome has no issue playing the videos but then again Chrome has all their plugins built on. I never liked Chrome and never will but like I said as a temp fix I'm just using it to view my videos. I WOULD PREFER Firefox and I just don't know what the issue is! Please get back to me when you get the chance


P.S I wasn't sure if the 'replies' function as I haven't from you guys in almost a day so that's why I'm placing the replies inside the original question. Hopefully this helps:)


Anyhow there's also an attachment (jpg) file of the issue I'm having and I hope that you guys can help with the Facebook issue

Regards,

Stan
