Hi all,

I was using the firefox devtools, and found that the "Edit and Resend" will change http to https automatically on some sites.

I have tried some other sites, and they works well. However this changing happens every time on this site.

This site could not be loaded via https, and definitely has no redirection from http to https, and as you can see from the image, there is only one failed request sent.

I'm using the Multi-Account Containers add-on, and I really love it! Great job!

My question is that I've observed a weird and annoying behavior. I use the built-in Shopping container when I'm, well, shopping. It's mostly Amazon, but sometimes it's other things. I sync between 3 computers, and they all generally stay in sync. I've noticed that the Shopping Container sometimes disappears. Then, a little while later, it reappears, and every time it does that, none of the websites (i.e. Amazon) that I was signed-in to are still signed-in. It's like the container automatically deletes itself and all of its history and cookies, and then starts over again a half hour later or so. I've even had it happen while using the container! Several times, right in the middle of shopping, the container has just disappeared, and it's gone on all 3 computers I sync with. Then it shows back up a half hour or so later. Every day I have to re-login to Amazon in the Shopping container, so I'm guessing it happens every day and I just may not notice it all the time.

Is this unusual? Am I the only one this happens to?

Thanks for the help.

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1435156]
My isp for mail has gone cheapo and dropped me from using mail as a back up to send any portion of the 5000 links I had on Firefox...so please don't ask if I can send them. Even click and drag only works ONE bookmark at a time (it just disappears if I drag a bunch whether 10 or 4000!).

   I am trying to get the bookmarks easily onto other browsers such as Chrome, Yahoo or lastly, gmail.  All of these have the simplest of directions, either to "export as HTML" or as JSON (from Fri the 13th?!).  In any event, they worked with ALL other bookmark files/folders, but not the ones within the mobile bookmarks on f.fox.
   How in heck am I going to be able to export them in a significant #, if Mozilla doesn't have a feature to correct them out of whatever gosh darn format they're in, and let them be unencumbered for direct "export to" or "import to" settiings on other browsers or from the mac/firefox "save as new file".
   At first I thought it was the fact that bookmarks for the mac also get designated as icloud if I move them to desktop sometimes (i.e there's a cute little icon on desk above file/name/pic.  I don't think that is the case as the other bookmarks I've sent would have failed (but they didn't).
  Isn't there a simple app that can extricate these "mobile bookmarks' as they certainly are NOT, and were not posed to me as a issue when I started using SYNC!

I just updated my macbook to the most recent OS, and since updating, and updating both Firefox and my VPN (PIA VPN), firefox has ceased loading pages while my vpn is active. It's not my internet connection, as other internet applications like Discord, Steam, and Spotify have continued to work while the VPN is active with no issue. This problem only seems to be affecting, and therefore must be the result of, something wrong with Firefox.

I tried rebooting my computer, which briefly worked but after a short while, opening new tabs or navigating links on webpages stopped working again fairly quickly. When I try to open a new webpage the loading symbol appears over the tab icon for a split second and then vanishes, the webpage remaining the same; and when trying to open links in a new tab they do not load and the little "lock" symbol in the search bar appears crossed out, indicating the browser is not establishing a secure connection.

I tried just restarting the app itself, using troubleshooting mode, and clearing my cache as well, but every one hit the same dead end. 

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Hi there,

apologies if this is not the right forum for a developer question, but Bugzilla didn't fell quite right in my case.

I'm developing a video streaming application that has to work with a custom streaming protocol. I already have an implementation using VideoDecoder and Insertable Streams that works in Chrome. Encoded VPX frames are being efficiently decoded and piped into an HTMLVideoElement via the MediaStreamTrack API. My understanding is that Firefox will soon have support for VideoDecoder (you can already enable it as an experimental feature and it works fine), but insertable streams is something that Firefox will not implement because it favors RTCRtpScriptTransform. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Could you point me to a way how to efficiently get a VideoFrame that I got from a VideoDecoder into an HTMLVideoElement without a MediaStreamTrackGenerator (part of the insertable streams API which Firefox will not implement)? I've already tried:

  • drawing to a canvas (instead of video element)
  • wrapping the (still encoded) vpx frames in a WebM container and using it with a MediaSource SourceBuffer (with a video element)

Both attempts worked in Firefox, but performance was nowhere near the Insertable Streams way.

The VideoDecoders work very well in both Chrome and Firefox (with WebCodecs API enabled) according to my benchmarks. It's really just the matter of getting the decoded frame displayed where I can't find an efficient solution for Firefox.

Thanks a lot in advance!

If this is the wrong forum, could you please refer me to a more appropriate place?
