Is it possible to disable autoplay videos on sites like CNN or NBC while still allowing video to be played on demand? I have disallowed autoplay on these sites because they have annoying, intrusive videos on about every single page, but I still *do* sometimes want to watch selected videos. With autoplay disabled, the "play" button in videos does not work, either. As it is, I have been disabling, then re-enabling, the autoplay block before/after watching a video, which sort of works as a work-around, but I'd really like a real solution--one that blocks autoplay but allows play on demand.

Hello Firefox People, Thank you for fixing the firefox color theme maker, it was working fine yesterday and the day before. I have made several themes, but am still learning how it works. Two of my unposted themes need some help. The larger personalized buttons on the opening page, the new tab page, are black instead of white. It ruins the whole theme. how do you change the Buttons (like Firefox Color, GMail, Weather, etc) from black to white. I don't see anything listed in the Color program that looks like those can be changed.

I was also wondering, is it possible for the team that makes it to make it a stand-alone program like they made in the 90's, so we could fix everything offline first, with a browser standalone that will preview the themes first before posting them. It takes a long time to make them sometimes, and it would be nice also, to let people who are working have the internet. Just a thought. Thanks for working out all the kinks in it. I love doing graphics arts! Below, please find "Sunflower" theme with the problem. Have a good day.  :-)

PS I have updated Firefox 89, on Windows 7 SP1

when using HBO Max Streaming service with Firefox, latest Stable, that you must have whichever tab/window playing the media be the primary active screen. Because when using PiP or switching to a different windows causes the media to lag and buffer. Playing only a few seconds. When you make that Tab the primary, it resumes normal uninterrupted playback. Why is this?

I am assuming its something to do with the processing it takes to use HBO Max and when its not the primary it reduces resources from it for other things. Which is a huge bummer since PiP mode is useless in this situation. 

To clarify, I only experience this with HBO Max. Other Streaming services work smoothly, even in PiP mode

Mozilla replaced the Feedback page with a "Challenges" page, so this looks like the only place to send real feedback. The Firefox 89 update appears to render Firefox as useless as Edge has become (at least for me). I don't need more pictures and an "experience." I need my toolbars to stay where I can find them, and I need to set them in the linear arrangement that I need to use them. To reveal any more would be "TMI," so I will just add this. I keep my update settings on manual in order to keep updates from crashing my custom accessibility settings. From what I read about the "ff" 89 update, I knew that "floating tabs" would be a disaster for me, so I did not even try it. I hope that Mozilla will at least consider a way for users to preserve their custom or "legacy" settings in the next update. The corporate culture that is Mozilla should remember that computers exist to serve people, not the other way around. Thank you and good-bye.

Firefox is logging me out of my Gmail account about every two days. I have two accounts. I usually keep them each open in a tab all the time, because I don't like having to open and log back into things constantly.

I'm running a Mac. The problem started maybe a few months ago. I've tried resetting the browser cookies, downgrading my security settings to moderate, and whitelisting gmail. I do run uBlock, AdGuard, and Privacy Badger, but I also have those on Chrome, and when I did a comparison test I didn't have the same issue there. I can be in the middle of clicking on an email and Firefox will boot me out.

This problem is mostly specific to Google. I'm able to stay logged in to other sites (yahoo mail, ravelry, etc.) over periods of weeks or even months. Some other accounts might be affected, but they're ones that usually make me log in more frequently, and that I use less often.

In the "Library" window, once a bookmark name is selected in the bookmark list (upper right) pane, the details (lower right) pane expands. This obstructs the view of the bottom portion of the bookmark list, preventing the bookmark to be double-clicked. See the attached screen shots:

(1) When a folder is selected in the folder list (left) pane, the details pane only shows its name.

(2) If the mouse pointer is moved to the bookmark list pane, the details pane remains unchanged.

(3) Once a bookmark name is clicked in the bookmark list, the details pane expands to show its name, location, tags and keyword. This is fine -- you can either single-click the bookmark name to see the details (as shown in the screen shot), or double-click to open it without taking a look at the details.

However, --

(4) Suppose the bookmark to be opened is toward the bottom of the list, and you want to double-click it.

(5) Upon the 1st click, the details pane expands to hide it, and you would end up missing the 2nd click. Presently, the only way around is to single-click the bookmark, roll up the screen, then click again, which is a bit too tedious.

This problem has been around for such a long time that I was hoping a lot of people complain to coerce a fix. Unfortunately, not so far.

Though surely not a big issue, this is frustrating enough to deserve to be rectified.

I opened the old laptop and i can find it - it has history going back to 2015

When I load up the manage history window on the new laptop, there's nothing before 2020. How can I get the rest of my history back?
