Hi, every time I'm on Youtube, Firefox loads the page 2 times and when I try to go back o the previous page it reloads the current: For example I play video #1, then I click in another video it opens the video #2 page, if I click the back page button even without playing video #2 it reloads video #2 page.

The second problem with Youtube is the audio: sometimes when playing a video suddenly on background it restart the audio of the video and it plays together, and if I pause the video the "first audio" stop but the second keeps going.

Already tried the fix audio solution but nothing changed, also cleared cache etc....

Hi Mozilla community,

I have the Firefox Multi-Accounts Containers addon installed and configured to use separate containers for different critical websites.

I've observed however that Firefox doesn't automatically load subdomains in the same container set for the main domain.

Example:

Container set for https://domain.com Domains https://www.domain.com and https://domain.com/us are not recognised to load under the container for domain.com. I have to manually set every single subdomain to also load in the same container.

Theres no way I've found to do this automatically.

All help, comments and feature request welcome in this regards.

Thank you all! Joan.

After Firefox updated to version 83.0 (64bit), my Spectrum Live TV does not work. The page loads, but the TV will not play and I get an error message from the Guide. It was working the day before on the previous version, and still works fine using Chrome and Edge. Does anyone know what might have caused the issue from the new version.

When switching tabs, Firefox allows you two behaviours: Recent Order or Tab Order but you have to choose between them. This is a trick to have THE TWO BEHAVIOURS TOGETHER Catch: AutoHotkey is required.

In Firefox Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs" mark enable recent order (ticked) Then compile the next script in Autohotkey and keep it running.


  1. if WinActive("ahk_exe firefox.exe")

^Q::Send, ^{TAB} ^Tab::Send, ^{PGDN} +^Tab::Send, ^{PGUP}

  1. if

Now with Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab you move right and left between Tabs and with Ctrl+Q you move to last viewed Tab. I choose Q because is next to Tab but you can change it in the second line of the script. Cheers!

  • Made @google the only search shortcut

  • Cleared all cookies and site data.

Permanent Private Browsing Mode is on. https://messages.google.com/web/ is a completely blank page. I have no idea how any of these changes could have caused it to fail.

Hello!

I'm getting an error message from Firefox whenever I try to open it that my profile is missing or cannot be accessed (see attached image).

I have tried everything from the help articles so far, and nothing worked. I deleted the profiles.ini file, I deleted the entire Firefox folder under Application Support, I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. None of that worked.

Even when I try to create/delete/save my profile over the Terminal, I get the attached error message.

I love using Firefox, but I simply cannot use it this way. No matter if I use the default, developers or nightly version.

If anyone has an idea how I could fix the issue I would be incredibly thankful.

Thank you already in advance for your help!

With the last update the behavior when pressing a search enginge icon in the adress bar has been changed.

When the icon is pressed the search shortcut is entered. Before the update a click on one of those icons started the search immediately. I know that this behaviour can be used if the shift-key is pressed while clicking the icon. But that is not how I like to use it and I dont see any benefits from this change.

How can I change to the old behaviour? I want clicking on a search engine icon in adressbar = start search immediately.

Hi, I have a large number of add-ons so I took them away from the tool-bar and moved them to the global menu through the Personalize menu in Firefox when clicking on the 3 bars at the right hand side of my tool bar.

I was wondering if they are still active? I'm thinking of add-ons like Facebook container, Httpeverywhere, Privacy Badger, ublock origin and the likes.

Thanks !

Dear Mozilla Support, I am contacting you because I would like to have clarifications regarding the following notification (that I found at the link: https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard):

1 Email address being monitored

Maybe I misunderstand the sentence, so I don't know whether to interpret it positively or negatively.

In other words: is Firefox monitoring my Email account, to protect it, or else has it been detected that my Email account is being monitored by third parties? If the second hypothesis is correct: how do I know who is checking my email account?

I thank you in advance.

With best regards

Recently a Website "Fastly" tries to connect to its own IP addresses. Even if nothing has been done to call it,

My research shows that Fastly now owns the IP addresses formerly used by the known spyware ad supploer Cambridge Entreprenurial 199.232.0.0 thru 199.232.255.255. I see these connection attempts because my FireWall specifically blocks the address used by Cambridge Entrepren... So the FW gives me a popup. (which I can bypass temporarily)

But I can't find a way to stop it or what is causing Fastly to do anything. It just seems to call home when it feels like. The only consistency is only partial at best. That is for Amazon.com. In that case sometimes connecting to Amazon.com works fine. But much or most of the times I do not get an even cl;ose properly formatted Amazon page. And if I do get an OK Amazon home page, odds are high the next tab-page I open will be messed up, or not have any formatting or no graphics at all.

Any ideas? And can we get rid of Fastly or do we just have to block sites that allow Fastly to operate?
