Hi, For a couple weeks now, whenever Firefox is open, I can't control other software with the keyboard media keys. I had fixed the problem before by setting the flag media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false, which worked for a while. But now it doesn't. I also tried setting dom.media.mediasession.enabled to false, and all 4 combinatios of the 2 flags. Firefox keeps capturing media keys. Tried disabling every addon shortcut too, as some other webpage recommended.

Note that it happens even if there's nothing in firefox, ie 1 tab on the "home" screen. Close Firefox and Spotify starts responding. Open Firefox and it stops working.

Hi

I can access mewe.com with the last firefox, but only while browsing using the "private mode". All other websites are ok, only this one. When I enter the url "mewe.com", it switches to https://..... and then... nothing, no relad available, just a desperately empty page. Obviously, all other browsers don't have such problems.

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?

Hello Hello,


I have an addon that makes my bookmarks open in new background tabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-bookmarks-in-a-new-tab/). This works in all but one instance. If I am already on the "New Tab" page, the bookmark opens in that tab. Is there any way to make the bookmark open in a background tab while I am on the new tab page? Thanks!

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How can I get my xxx@free.fr address (zimbra mail) instead. Help from mozilla doesn't help me! Years ago the same problem was solved with a button on the first opening of the mail box.

Hi !

Firefox asked me again to create a new profile. Third or forth time within a month or two. Nothing serious, I have to admit, takes a few minutes to recover bookmarks, reset duckduckgo as default search engine, etc., but why is it happening? Version 87.0, Windows 10, 64 bit.

And while I'm here... I use to download a lot of webpages, for information purposes, it's easier than to bookmark them all. Doesn't work correctly for a while now, they are not saved as webpages, but as something resembling html-format (or however to describe it)... Still working with Edge and Opera, so it must be a Firefox issue. And after each update Firefox was reset to French language automatically one or two days later, this also does not happen any more. I'm neither English nor French native speaker, so again, not a real problem, but why is it happening? or rather not happening any more?

Just curious... Thanks in advance for any hint Best regards Michael

Playing youtube video on Firefox has become a hazard. The power consumption sharply rises whenever a video is plying AND (specifically) when the this youtube tab is the one open (current). As soon as I move to another tab and let the video continue playing this problem disappears and resource consumption looks normal. Then if I go back to the youtube tab then it spikes again sharply.

It has been like this for a week or couple of days now.

Debugging steps:

   Tried clearing the cache & reloading
   Tried disabling ell extensions+ running browser in Safe Mode.
   Tried several different streams: some streams w/ no customization might fix the problem, but it's not entirely clear to me which streams are "completely" customization-free.
   Tried different browser: Edge does not exhibit this issue

The Problem:

Been noticing this problem in Firefox at https://cytu.be over the last couple of months; this seems to be happening with any stream on the site, ; I don't remember exactly when I started noticing it. This is observed directly on the website, not any third-party site.

Messing with stuff outside of the web player seems to have a tendency to break the web player's volume control, resulting in its volume maxing out and desyncing from the video stream; it almost sounds at times like the audio stream is restarting from the beginning of whatever video is playing, while the video stream continues as normal. I've seen it happen mostly while using a wireless remote + Fliirc to adjust settings (mainly OS volume, brightness, and f.lux settings) but it can also happen from my keyboard, as well as manipulating the web player's volume control too much, and also zooming in/out the webpage too much. Clearing the cache & reloading doesn't work, and neither does disabling all add-ons, or running Firefox in Safe Mode. The only solution I've found so far is to refresh the webpage.

Spoke with site's developer, who remarked that he had not heard of anyone else experiencing this bug, and suggested it must be a Firefox issue; something about how the browser interacts with the OS' audio subsystem is probably causing this bug.

Does not seem to happen in latest version of Edge, for some reason.

Running the latest build of Windows 10 64-Bit Windows 10 64-bit OS Build 19042.928 and Firefox 64-bit 87.0.

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".
