The browser simply refuses to save such personal preferences anymore, up until the last update this hasn't been an issue. Before i updated youtube would remember to use dark mode and disable autoplay without fail, now i have to reset these preferences every time i open a new youtube tab. When i open a new tab on youtube the screen starts as if it were in dark mode and then smash-cuts to light mode with autoplay as soon as the video and recommended thumbnails load up. This doesn't happen on Chrome, and when i set my system preferences in the windows options menu it does default to dark mode (but i really hate the systemwide dark mode there).

I could really use some help here if anyone is able to, half of my browsing youtube is in the dead of night and i really don't need the added eye strain every time i want to watch a new video outside of my queue.

Hi, my Firefox Menu bar always randomly stops responding... the "Apple" Menu & the "Firefox" Menu (About, Prefs., Hide/Show, Quit both still work, but not the rest of the Firefox menus (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Window, Help)... those randomly become unresponsive, then total stop when using Firefox...)

Is there a setting in Firefox, or is there a way using Apple's Activity Monitor, or a Terminal command to force a restart of the Menu bars? this is getting very annoying LOL

hi folks,

Is it possible to restore a firefox profile to a new install from previously synced profiles ? I have several different profiles of firefox running on a few machines. On one of them I had to format the SSD but forgot to save to settings. When logging into the firefox account I see a list of all my machines but I don't see an option to recover settings from any of them

I would be eternally grateful for any help.

Thank you !

Hi dear Community Members, formerly when I opened a link in an email from my Outlook account, it opened in a Tab exactly next to it. But now it goes beyond several tabs which were already there. How can I get these links again opened in a Tab right next to it. That makes it easier to go from my email to that tab and back, I find.

Hope that I described this clear.

Thanx, Jan

This all started while I was trying to open Spotify in Firefox. It kept telling me I need to enable secure playback. So I checked and "Play DRM-controlled content" is enabled. I did some googling to see what could be the problem. Turns out I need Google Widevine enabled, so I check the plugins page where I find out I don't even have Widevine installed. I also checked the default profile folder (root directory) to see if there's even a gmp-widevinecdm folder there but I couldn't find anything.

Is there a way for me to reinstall Widevine without having to create a new profile?

Hello. Please help. I reinstalled Firefox and got 1 error. Previously, when I pressed the print button for a PDF file on any site, the PDF Reader and Adobe Print Panel would open in Windows. Now, when clicking on this button, an error occurs. To fix this in Firefox preferences, I installed PDF Reader for pdf files. And now the files open in PDF Reader on my Windows, its good. But there was a problem, when I press the print button, the print dialog box from "Adobe Reader Print " should also open (picture 1), but instead the standard " Windows Print Dialog " one opens (picture 2). In this window I cannot set the print properties and make a preview. Please tell me how I can fix this . Maybee can I restore this from the old profile using some config file? in another browser, the desired window is launched(

i have one url that everytime I click on the tab, or close it completely, and type it in again, it always opens up at 30% zoom.

I can get rid of it easily by clicking on the 30% in the url window but it is completely annoying.

I am not sure how i did it in the first place and i am wondering how to get rid of it, or at least change it so it doesnt come back.

I have been trying to install Firefox on a Windows computer running Windows 10 Pro. I have two users on the computer. I have installed Firefox successfully on the main user but every time I try to install for the second user, it does not install. it says it failed and leaves a strange icon on the desktop which, when I click, it deletes the file. I am not sure why. I have installed the same on 11 other computers with two users and no problem with those ones.
