Hello!

I can't use Netflix on my old Windows 7 machine. I'm sure my computer can handle the transcode but just in case - it runs an i3-2330M with 6GB of RAM. When I hover over a title, I can see the preview but when I click it, I end up with an error message. I run the latest Firefox version and have also restarted to check if it works but alas, to no avail.

I have attached an image below. Also, just in case, I have done the adjustments to Firefox's configuration from here.

All help would be appreciated!

PS. Not sure if this helps, but Firefox couldn't play Spotify either! When I open the web Spotify player, I can see my playlists and such, but when I click on any song/album/playlists's play button, it doesn't respond at all! I have resorted to using the app, but am mentioning just in case if it helps figure out the problem/for other users having the same trouble as me.

Hey there!

We have error logs being created fairly regularly for user(s?) with a particular Firefox extension. We are trying to identify this extension to determine the cause. I know a reverse-lookup (ID to name) service exists for Chrome extensions. Is there something similar for Firefox extensions? Thus far, I haven’t been able to find one.

The extension ID/source in question is: moz-extension://ba9d01f7-5cbf-442b-94bf-f030a6fdc626/scripts/uninterrupt.js

Any insight that can be provided would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

(I originally posted this in the discourse forum, but this forum appeared to have a larger audience, so my apologies for the blatant cross-post... but I'm kind of at a loss here.)

Hi; hope all is well in your world!

I have a ProtonMail account. (It works fine, I recommend it!) Had it for years, but have not used it much. Looking into VPN and proton offers one, so trying to find out more, and so am now exploring the proton site quite a bit.

I can log into ProtonMail itself very easily; I get directed to my ProtonMail inbox. Cool so far. But clicking on 'help' takes me to ProtonMail Support, in a new tab. Not so cool, because I'm now not logged in. If I hit the 'LOG IN' button at the top of that page, I can log in (again) very easily. But it takes me back to my ProtonMail inbox! Same problem if I try to log in to the Protonmail Blog.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've checked through all the ProtonMail support articles (that claim they are 'step by step guide to find easily your answer'); I've investigated 'Common Login Problems', and none of the offered solutions apply (I'm not having a problem logging in; I'm having a problem logging in to something other than the inbox.) I've tried disabling browser extensions; checked the settings of Javascript, Session Storage, and Cookies; even tried using a different browser.

I think the answer to this conundrum is to configure Firefox -- just for proton -- so that instead of opening a new tab it opens the content in the same tab. But I've searched Firefox help, and have not been able to discover how to do that.

I fear I am slowly but surely going insane.

Please help!

Is there a way for me to test out passwords without having to wait 15 minutes after testing out a few? I lost my password but there are usually a few combinations so I've been trying to brute force it but it just doesn't workout. Thankfully I have a backup profile but it is rather old and I'd like to sync stuff to that account but I also don't want to wipe my data because I have quite a few new bookmarks and things I keep to remind myself of stuff (I have way too many bookmarks). Thanks

Sometime in the last week or so, the lastpass and onetab icons that normally reside just to the right of the URL display and to the left of the download icon and the history icon in the upper right of my FF browser disappeared. I think maybe it was the result of an update, but I wasn't paying close attention, then when I did notice it, couldn't find anything on the interweb about it.

They are both still installed since if I go to the onetab on the playstore it only shows uninstall and if I restart the computer, one of my open browser windows will restart with the onetab open as a new tab. If I close the tab, there is then no evidence apparent that it is still there. I have hovered my mouse over that area but nothing shows to be there.

Any ideas? BTW, if not apparent from the above, I am not very technical. Thanks

Hello There, not sure if this question makes sense. But since some time I do have no longer the autofill information in SAP. And maybe this is in connection that I switched over to Firefox (from Internet Explorer)?

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

After updating to FF 83.0 something has changed in font rendering. Another update breaks something for me and another silence in changelog.

When hardware acceleration is enabled in firefox settings I observe that fonts which are overlayed on youtube videos have ugly chromatic aberration effect around them and they are much thinner than they should be. When I disable hardware acceleration they are fine - they look the same as on different browsers, for example Brave.

Is there any way to fix font rendering without need to disable hardware acceleration?

Hello everybody, first of all sorry if there are mistakes in my english or missuse of informatic terms, I am not a native speaker.

I did a complete restoration of my computer (installing again windows after formating the hard drive). I installed again firefox and connected it to my firefox account. I was expecting for firefox to synchronize itself and find again all my registered login passwords, tabs, ect..

Instead of this, even if the synchronisation seems to occur (turning symbol) nothing happens after that. I can not find neither my old tabs or my log in informations.

I hope you can understand my problem and can help me to solve it,

thanks in advance

Dear All

Sorry to pose this question once more but the provided solutions in the FAQ will not fix my problem. I am working on a Mac. Since yesterday I have troubles with most pages on firefox as they all come in a black background/white (or different color) font design.

I have already checked the preferences - these are as they should be (white background). I have also gone to "customize" and chosen "light". No change.

What else could I try? It started yesterday without a concious attempt on my side to change something. I could have hitten some wrong buttom but I would not know.

Many thx already for whovever kind soul is going to help me.

Kind regards Antoinette
