When trying to play any video Firefox will continuously load, using chrome I'm able to load pages / view videos fine. I have Disabled the Hardware Acceleration in Firefox, Clear Browsing Data, reset Firefox, uninstalled, removed local files and re-installed. I then tried running in safe mode and it still will not load. After all that I made sure windows was up to date, it was on 1909, I installed the latest 21H1 but after all that Firefox is still not loading videos. I'm out of ideas please help.

For some reason (probably an update), over the last few months Firefox lost the ability auto login sites like YouTube and others, and this is really annoying with sites that require two-step verification. I have checked settings but everything seems to be Ok. Unfortunately have had to use Chrome for those sites I previously browsed with Firefox and avoid having to login manually. Is there any solution for this? Thanks.

I had one profile on Firefox and it got deleted yesterday. It had so much data and private keys. I don't even see that profile in profile folder path. I made a new profile today and there were many tabs opened on that profile. When i search for a webpage already opened on that deleted profile it gives me a reference to it as attached is there any way i can regain access to the same? PFA picture. The encircled shows that this tab is on sdraj (my old profile) followed by desktop name.

Hello!

I've set up an AdGuard Home server in my network. It provides the DNS-over-HTTPS service, I added it to my Firefox Network Settings configuration as https://adguard.example.com/dns-query and my machine has adguard.example.com in its /etc/hosts file.

The upstream AdGuard DNS server is my home router, which has several static DNS entries added for hosts in my network, e.g. foo.example.com pointing to 10.0.0.100.

During regular use, the domains resolve properly - when I navigate to http://foo.example.com everything works OK.

However when my machine is connected to VPN, the browser is unable to connect to http://foo.example.com, but it is still able to reach: http://10.0.0.100, regular internet as well as https://adguard.exaple.com (which is obtained from /etc/hosts).

This is on MacOS, using openconnect as a VPN client (and of course, the VPN connection changes the host DNS servers, this is what I'm trying to circumvent with Firefox' DoH feature).

I noticed one thing: with VPN, the use-application-dns.net resolves to something, without VPN it does not. I found this article, which mentions: "When any of these checks indicates a potential issue, Firefox will disable DoH for the remainder of the network session, unless the user has enabled the “DoH always” preference as mentioned above."

I have DoH explicitly enabled, the network.trr.mode is set to 2 (tried 3 as well, did not help). There's no such option as "DoH always" in the settings!

Within the past few days something changed within Firefox. One news website's comment window has changed to a totally white window. The print is there, but so faint it cannot be read until it is posted. That creates a problem checking spelling, changing wording etc. Even if I "edit", the text is so dim it's unreadable.

This problem started with an update a couple months ago. Each bar is about 4 pixels wide and appears only on the right, left, and bottom edges of the browser window. They persist when the window is full size or smaller, but disappear on f11. The bars are completely unresponsive. Clicking or resizing the window doesn't seem to work inside of them. Even though the top of the window has no visible bar, there is still an unresponsive region like the other three sides and approximately 4 pixels of empty space.

When it comes to color, the bars spend about 50 percent of the time as white and 50 percent as the same gray that Firefox's dark mode uses. I wasn't able to get a screenshot when the bars were gray, but I was able to screenshot the top right and left corners when the bars were white, which I have attached.

It appears as if there are buttons of some sort poking out on the top right and left corners. If I had to guess, the top right icon looks like the "x" button on a Windows 7 window, and the top left icon looks like the red dot in the uppermost corner of a macOS window. My machine has only ever run Windows 10, and Firefox is the only application that this problem occurs in.

Restarting, using troubleshooting mode, manually removing extensions and themes, messing around with compatibility settings, running as administrator, refreshing Firefox, and reinstalling Firefox have all been unsuccessful. It really is annoying to live with this bug.

Hello, I'm using Ubuntu 20.04, and the newest Firefox (i.e. 93.0). For a long time already I have very irritating issue: I have 2 profiles: Company (default) and Personal (secondary). Company profile is marked as default. Personal profile I'm using for my personal email account, youtube, facebook etc. The issue is that whenever I have opened 2 FF instances, with those 2 separate profiles, I never know in which instance of FF the link will open. It's soooooo frustrating. Mainly I'm opening links from company Slack or email, and I never know in which Firefox link will open. Is there any option to set it? I would except that all links will open in the default profile ("Company"). Br, Marek

Hello, I'll try to describe the issue as clearly as I can. When I go through a page of results and download a PDF, I cannot download a second PDF from the same page unless I first reload the page itself. If I don't do it, the link that would start the download of an additional PDF is inactive. Not a major problem but a bit annoying. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, AC
