Why are common formatting commands not easily accessible from pull-down menus?

You say "Kindness is at the heart of our community." but this is not true of the way you treat users.

I have reInstall Firefox without success in returning to full screen. I have used F11 to gain Full Screen but that hides the Tabs, etc. and is not the desired screen image.

I have several different devices that seem to all lose the ability to sync (mostly bookmarks are obvious since those change much more often than anything else I'm syncing). I try manual sync and that occasionally works but at least once a month or so I have to disconnect a device and reconnect it to my FireFox account. Is there a log to review for this sort of thing? Is there a good way to tell which device is failing to sync (i.e. is one failing to upload something or is another one failing to download that info?) Thanks!

Fix video and audio playback problems on Firefox for Windows 10

Last 2 weeks my xfinity movies, and possible Amazon Prime videos too, stopped playing/won't load in latest FF on Win10. Viewing most videos on YouTube OK, some commercial films posted available for free show "can't play" message with "diagnose" link, returning FireFox page saying "your browser is up to date" WTF?

Firefox displays message in browser frame at top of content area - "you may need to improve video playback by installing Microsoft Feature Pack click here" That MS link goes to FireFox page with UNHELPFUL info. - only Win10 link/info relates to some "N" version of Windows - nothing to do with my version.

So, is the issue a screwed up Win10 update - the one that makes Start Menu and toolbar items inaccessible to mouse? - or other "update" like the mouse-pointer?

Today when I opened Firefox in Private Window I was greeted with some kind of pop up type feature in the middle of my private page about changing the color of Firefox. I have never seen this before so I closed the window and it made me think that I had malware which I promptly closed Firefox and ran Norton and Malware Bytes which were neg. I opened Firefox again not using Private Window and it opened to Firefox default page instead of the homepage I had designated as being Bing. So I had to now go into settings and reset my home page which is stable. What is going on with Firefox? Will we be seeing these option windows appear when we open Firefox like to change Firefox colors or something else? Is there a purpose of changing my homepage back to default Firefox? What other things have been messed with that we do not know about.

I participated in a 3 day live stream conference over Friday and the weekend and had buffering issues after 2 or 3 hours of continuous streaming.

Initially I just quit the browser and restarted, which fixed the problem. When it happened again, I went into settings and cleared the cache, but that did not help and I again quit and restarted the browser to fix the issue.

I have access to the recorded sessions, if that might be of any help in troubleshooting this.

Thanks.

Since updating to Firefox to 91.3.0esr (64-bit), half of my Youtube playback set to 480p quality will randomly jumps to 360p quality in almost every video above 10 minutes after playing for ~50% of the video length.

How do I stop this? Or, How do I roll back to a version of FireFox below 91.3.0esr (64-bit) which did not do this?

Hello everyone! I’ve been saving since over two years all my important documents , pictures and files on my iPhone under the folder files>On My iPhone>Firefox. Then suddenly like around a month ago I’ve had a problem loading the Firefox app, then I’ve decided to delete it and reinstall it. Afterwards I was surprised by all the files and pictures which were saved under (Firefox) were all deleted. Any idea how can I restore them back since they’re extremely important for me ?

I recently updated to Version 93 and noticed something strange. I play a game in Facebook. The game is in HTML5. When I play the game the rendering of the graphics appears to be noticeably slower than in version 92. I don't know how else to describe the problem. As I play the game and click on the graphics to do something, it takes a noticeable lag in time before the change takes place.

Others have asked similar questions but mine hasn't been addressed yet...

I am on Windows 10 and my Firefox browser is at version 93. Ever since the last update, ALL of my PDF files now show up in file explorer as "Firefox HTML" documents. I have changed it so that they open as Acrobat PDF, but the file extentions all got changed from PDF to HTML. Even when I create/save them as .pdf, Firefox automatically changes them. I DO NOT LIKE THIS!! It makes them impossible to tell apart from actual HTML files in the file list!! I have not yet tried uploading the to Google Drive or attaching them to emails and sending that way. This is a MESS. How can I restore it such that Firefox leaves my PDFs alone???? Whose brilliant idea was this to begin with and WHY???

Hi,

I've been trying to enable autoplay on youtube.

I have given youtube permission in every window and setting I can find.

Firefox is STILL blocking autoplay. I've tried to allow autoplay globally and it still blocks it. The only extension I have installed is NoScript, in which nothing on youtube is blocked.

This is also a fresh install of both firefox and OS.

So how can I turn autoplay blocking off?
