hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

Hello, for some reason my firefox has utterly broke. i was running a slightly older version, but if it aint broke dont fix it right? 2 days ago everything worked fine, but then it simply stopped loading videos.

I tried the suggested "fixes" i could find by searching

clear cookies and cache- didnt work

safe mode - didnt work

refresh firefox - didnt work

new profile -didnt work

disable hardware acceleration - didnt work

disable firefox enhanced tracking - didnt work.

When they all failed I uninstalled my outdated version and downloaded the latest 77.0.1 version, this is a fresh install with zero add ons and zero stuff carried over from the previous install, but still no videos will work in firefox. they work fine in other browsers but depending on the site one of the following happens in firefox.

"No video with supported format and MIME type found"

"there was an error loading or playing the video"

" Unfortunately, your browser does not support video playback."

simply a black box where the video is suppose to be.

or I can see the thumbail but the video itself will not load or play.

I asked on reddit and uploaded a "about:support" log Log

and they are stumped

I do NOT appreciate that Mozilla now forces me to use the FireFox home page (or else literally nothing - a blank page) for my new tabs. I want to use the same custom page I have set up as my home page, but since the last update, that page only shows in a new window, not on new tabs. Is there a workaround for this? I use multiple tabs within the same window heavily, and having FireFox abruptly override a customization I have already set up and been using for years, that works best for me, is seriously pissing me off. I know there is a plugin to se new tabs, but I already have several plugins and would prefer not to add more.

Beginning today I have been experiencing web sites where the content is being repeatedly BLOCKED BY GOOGLE "ADS". I get one such brutish intrusion to go away but it is promptly replaced with yet another, seems to me criminal, interference with ever seeing the content of the web site that I intended to visit. "Reporting" the objectionable nature of their covering over the relevant content of the web site has done no good whatsoever. Does anybody know HOW Firefox can be set so as to stop Google from that massive trashing of everybody else's web sites?

Printing Webpages Using Firefox: Issue Resolved

Version 73.0.1

When printing a webpage from Firefox (Open Menu->Print), the print preview mode is displayed. On most websites with multiple pages, each page displays the full text in order.

However, on some websites with multiple pages, the first page displays text but the second page only shows the header in the top left and the website in the top right but the page is blank. On other webpages, full webpage text is displayed but it is out of order.

When using Opera, the webpages that showed blank text or out of order text in Firefox are displayed completely and in the correct order.

Is it a website browser compatibility and configuration issue (the webpage is only configured correctly for certain browsers) or Is this a known Firefox glitch that causes some pages not to be displayed correctly in print preview mode?

I hope that my question is clear.
