DirecTV Now prevents the use of any internet browser other than Google's Chrome to stream content.

See: https://help.directvnow.com/hc/en-us/articles/212447843-What-devices-and-browsers-can-be-used-with-DIRECTV-NOW-

Do you know why, and can you share why the use of Firefox isn't allowed to stream content?

Is there anything that Mozilla can do that would lead to DirecTV Now allowing the use of Firefox to stream content?

Thank you,

Lindsey

When Firefox updated yesterday I lost my left scroll bar in Youtube and cannot see my subscriptions. I checked my other computer and Youtube was fine, that is, it was fine until Firefox updated on that machine. Now Youtube on that machine has lost its scroll bar. As it seems directly tied in to Firefox updates I request that this problem be fixed. I have tried everything to fix it on my own, but nothing works. Everything was fine until the Firefox update. I am running Windows 7, and NO I will not upgrade to 10. One machine is a Dell PC Inspiron5 and the other is an Acer laptop only a year old. Like I said the PC was fine, Youtube was fine, until the Firefox update and then it was the same as the laptop so this is YOUR issue. Please fix it.

Hi, I installed ubuntu on this computer, and Bookmarks toolbar option is - as said in the title - not available (there is no option when I click on "Barres d'outils" (toolbars), not even the menu bar option.) I tried with the menu ("alt" key) options too, and there only was a link to the personalisation page. :/ I did had the option a few days ago on a VM on another computer, and when I looked it up today, the options disappeared too. I don't know what kind of magic it is, and google sensei does not seem to want to show me another way to activate this toolbar. ^^' Thanks for any help ! :D

Ugh. I already posted this information. So when I upgraded Firefox today, it asked me to pick one of two "profiles", which I knew nothing about. (This has never happened before when upgrading Firefox.) I thought they were some kind of malware so I deleted them. It turns out that they had all my personal information, including bookmarks. (Why don't you explain to users what these things are before you ask them to keep or delete them?) So I lost all of that stuff. But now there is a folder on my desktop called Old Firefox Data, which, I'm guessing, contains all of my old Firefox data. How do I restore this information to Firefox?

4 more crashes today after 2 yesterday. will send the error messages upon request. I have reported this before. I thought it might have gotten better as only two crashes yesterday but today after around four got bonkers again. Please help me / Could it be I have an avast blocker for ads and such running. Could this be the problem? Got rid of a full time running Malwarebytes and updated as much as I could except for motherboard drivers which I can not do. Might just have to jump shop as this interferes with doing my Amazon Mturk work. Might have to join the evil empire and go to chrome of all else fails and really do not want to. Any further advice might help. This all started with the new updates about 8 or 9 days ago.

I am using Win 10 Home 64bit on a HP Omen16 Gb 2nd Gen i7 and my default browser is of course Firefox Quantum 64 bit 59.0.2. I am unable to watch videos on Fox News.com but I am able to watch them on Chrome and Edge on that site. I have racked my brain to find out why I can't watch them on FF. I have disabled my ad blocker and tried to no avail but they will play on the other browsers with my UBlock running. Firefox is using the recommended performance for my system. I have read other suggestions and none work. I have Java installed on my computer and Flash also and both are up to date. I have no trouble what so ever playing videos on other websites it is just FoxNews.com. I even had trouble watching these with my other computer that ran Win 7. Could someone please let me know what to do to correct this. It is aggravating to switch browsers just for one site.

When I use 64 bit Firefox 59.0.2 on Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon edition to log on to https://secure.ii.co.uk/webbroker2/login_form.jsp and click in any of the password character boxes a "No usern..." pop-up obscures the password character being requested. You can put anything in the first field (the account/username field - don't have to have an account to get the behaviour). Chromium works ok. It's not vital of course, but irritating, and I wonder why this happens in Firefox.

How to stop Firefox from going to an already open tab when same site?

I'm trying to open the same site in two different tabs. Yet when I open a new tab and type the site I want to go to, the URL suggestions show the site as already being open in another tab and forces me to go that the open tab rather than allow me to open the site in the new tab. The only way I get around this is if I don't choose the URL suggestion and type the ENTIRE URL myself.

Why?? Why isn't there an option of opening the SAME site in TWO different tabs? Why is the only option being forced to go to the open tab? I don't care that I already have the site open. I sometimes need the same site open more than once so I can compare info or something. How can anyone think that FORCING us to go to the open tab is in any way a good idea?

No, I don't want to copy/paste the link. No, I don't want to have to manually type the ENTIRE link. I want to just being typing the URL, have the suggestions show up, choose the URL I want, and have it OPEN IN THE NEW TAB, not force me to the already open tab.

This is frustrating as hell since I mainly write in English.

The window that I opened right after restarting is still open. I also can't click the button with the books.

Windows 7 Dell Precision M4700 laptop. (I can log into it on a mac I tested). Mid morning it timed out on me and I couldn't log back in. I spent all day with tech support to no avail. They reissued me a new password. Re-registered my account. Cleared cache and cookies several times. Restarted the computer several times. Re-insalled FireFox. Refreshed in Safe mode.

They can't find anything on their end. Nor do they receive any login failures as they normally would/should be able to see. When I fill in my user name and password it looks like it's trying then both user & password boxes just go blank. No errors, no you've typed in the wrong user name or password. Nothing. Just fill in again.
