I have disabled autoplay in my preferences for all websites, but some videos on some websites still autoplay. (This is under Preferences / Privacy and Security / Autoplay. Under "Default for all Websites", it is set to Block Audio and Video.) How is it that some websites are able to get around this? Is there a way to defeat them?

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?

Hi all,

I am running into an odd issue and I am stumped on what to try next. As you can see in the attached images, I am running into a problem with select dropdowns. The first dropdown is from https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-400/ (Buy Now and click country) and the second is from this Mozilla support page. Long story short is dropdowns are messed up in my default profile. I have done the following to attempt to troubleshoot the issue -

1) Restart Firefox in Safe-Mode without addons 2) Refresh Firefox 3) Delete the Firefox user directory 4) Create a brand new profile and launch into the new profile (This works but for some reason but it can't be my default profile) Default profile fails to work but others don't. If I set my newly created profile as the default, then the new default profile doesn't work. Odd.

Anyway, if anyone has any insight on fixing this issue then it would be great. The dropdowns have been broken for a few months but I have just dealt with them. Thank you for any help over the topic.

I am running Firefox Version 84.0.1 on Windows 10 1909.

Whenever I attempt to use a camera in Firefox, it defaults to one and does not allow you to select any others in the list. I have two other camera devices on this computer, but neither of them are ever listed.

I use OBS as a video mixer and then Voicemeeter as an audio mixer. Firefox has no trouble selecting between the 8 audio input devices on this computer, so I'm not sure why video would be any different.

I need Firefox to use OBS's virtual camera for school and work, but it always defaults to Epoccam now. It used to default to my NDI Virtual Input, which I was able to use (but with some issues) to get video out of OBS, it just added an extra hop.

Hello, evereone!

My win-application (1)compose an local-html-template, (2)call to open it with a Firefox as a "text editor" for some changes and getting final local-html-documents and (3)needs to save changed local-html-document automatically under application control.

Like model works good with any text-editor like notepad, OpenOffice etc. The application retains control of the text-editor until the text-editor closes (with or without saving document).

However, in the case of the Firefox, the application loses control of the Firefox as soon as the page is opened. And the application does not have information about the shutdown of the Firefox.

The question is: Is there an Firefox-option that allows you to keep control of the application over the Firefox during open Firefox or tab-session?

Thank you so much for any hint, Denis Lopatin

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.

FYI, running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office (including Outlook) 2007. (Yes, I know I should upgrade, but some of the other programs I use will not work on Windows 8 or 10, and I don't want to spend a couple thousand dollars to get newer versions.) With that in mind, every now and then I get an email message in Outlook with a hyperlink that I cannot open. This does not happen on all messages, just some of them. I can put the cursor over the item, and the hyperlink address shows up, but I cannot open it, select it, copy it, or anything else. Sometimes I can tell the message to "open in browser" (which unfortunately opens it in IE), but then I can click on the item, and either (1) tell it to open in a new tab in IE, or (2) select "Properties", copy the address in the Properties window, and then paste the address into Firefox. (A lot of effort just to open a hyperlink, yes?) Any suggestions? Thanks.

2 weeks into my new MAC mini (my first MAC ever so I'm still learning!)...and Firefox worked perfectly until today. Now it freezes on the initial screen every time I run it. The only time I solved it was rebooting the machine...which worked...once. It locked up the very next time. Reloading Firefox doesn't fix it. Just a reboot.

Most of the answers I saw said Version 84.0.2 was the fix for that...but that's what I'm running. Any further suggestions? With my rookie status on the MAC. it could well be operator error. Thanks everyone!

Hello,

My firefox does't open the "New Private Window". Whenever I install firefox for the first time, the New private windows doesn't show any problem.

I have a web-based app which I use firefox to open. I use multiple tabs like for opening and printing pdf & having multiple modules from the web-based app. The issue is some users are clicking on the firefox icon even though firefox is open & it opens another session or window of Firefox. What I would like if someone clicks on the Firefox icon and it is already open to just display that session of firefox that is open & not open a new window/session. My issue is we have 5 and 6 different windows for the same web app & it's causing some issues. All links should open in a new Tab which they do now but if I can find a way to stop firefox opening twice it will solve my issue.
