Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Hey guys,

Just switched over to Mac, trying to work out how to set it so that when you click 'Open File' rather than 'Save File' it only downloads a temporary file and opens it for you (like it does in Windows and like it's meant to do as the support pages have said) however on my laptop it now saves properly to the Downloads folder and stays there after I close the file rather than deleting it - does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

When I browse in full screen mode and try to save something (a web page or a picture... it doesn't matter) the dialog box does not show up on the screen - only two big buttons on my touch bar which allow me to "cancel" or "save".

Is there a way to fix that?

I have 2 separate firefox accounts, one is my personal profile and the other one is for school. I recently made the switch from brave to firefox and I had the same thing but the profiles were pinned to the taskbar for easier access. I cant do this for firefox because i pin one shortcut and I right click the other shortcut but its connected to each other so it shows unpin from taskbar.

bold text

I spend more time LEARNING how to do this or that with my computer. Thousands of hours wasted over the years. I guess some kids think this is fun. Not me. I downloaded "SingleFile" hoping it would be easy to use, but it's not. I used to use things like UnMHT but that' gone. Todays problem is that I don't have a printer hooked up to my computer. I bought a car part online and wanted to print the oversized receipt. I downsized the page and took a screenshot of the receipt. Took the screen shot and put it on a stick. Next I turned on my wife's computer which has a good printer connected to it. I transferred the file to her computer, but the printout was very shabby looking. How can I get around the problems of saving pages and / or printing them ? Switch to a different browser ? You must know my email by now. Please send me an answer. Ray P.S. Should I be using Thunderbird or something ? Really confused. Another problem is that people don't know how to explain things. It's like they're using a different language with words missing. OMG :-(

When flashplayer reached EOF, I became unable to view live tv on cnbc.com, even after logging into my tv provider. A black screen just sits there without loading the video. I thought it was a problem with my tv provider, but tried to do the same on Google Chrome, and it worked fine.

Something is broken. Can you fix firefox to agaib play cnbc tv live?

Thanks, Debra

Impossible de vider la "Liste des téléchargement" browser.download.lodlevel me renvoie "Error" Une solution ?

J'ai réparé Firefox et réinstallé les modules complémentaires. La seule réponse que j'ai trouvé consiste à supprimer le fichier "download.json" qui n'exite pas dans mon dossier de profil.

Merci d'avance.

I am french speaking and have a french Firefox installation, sorry for bad translation...

In my Firefox I have this option selected : "Verify for the existence of upgrades, but let me decide for the installation".

I had the old version 66.0.5 since may,13 2019 and NEVER wanted to upgrade anymore for various reasons...

Why did the upgrade occurred this morning without my express consent?

This is a violation of my privacy and security, I want my old version back and a way to prevent any new upgrades in the future.

When downloading a file without saving it it will just disappear after downloading. I can see the downloading process but when i click the blue arrow the message is that the file has been moved or missing. If I choose to save the file there is no problem but I often only want to have a short glance at the document and no interest i sawing the file.

I have made a new installation of Firefox but the problem remains the same. I hav temporarly turned off my Norton security program but that doesn´t help either. This problem was first noticed in late 2020 before that I could download and open the file directly.

Hi, I'm a developer and I have a progressive web app website. It is HTTPS only and is on the HSTS preload list.

In the top sites list the icon recently changed to offline though the site has never been down. It's been so for about a month.

Can anyone tell me why that is happening? It's important to me that any visitors see the correct icon displayed in top sites.

Thanks in advance Steve

hi, I'm having problems with Firefox on my Mac - every time Firefox is shut down, I have to relog in and authenticate myself and all my settings have gone so I have to redo them again. I have tools that I use for work that use certain settings else they don't work so I have to redo them every time I reopen the browser or shut my machine down. anyone know why this might be the case?

I don't know if it's linked but when I started using this current machine last year and loaded everything on, Firefox is sitting under 'locations' rather than applications and I don't seem to able to install it anywhere else - see image attached.

Many thanks.
