As of 11/21/2021 is there any way to stop detaching and floating videos ? All the searches on the Web produce loads of blogs where the issue is discussed -- but none of it works definitively. A lot of Hot Air and useless comments on the topic. Most point to about:config, which has been shown useless to stop floating videos, in my experience. Have tried every permutation of manipulating relevant config settings according to advice I have found -- nothing works. At the DailyMail.Com you can ad a script to AdBlock and it works -- for one site...

All the search links go in circles and just repeat the same information -- none of which works. Particularly annoying are the CBS affiliate sites with the URL *CbsLocal.com. Element blocking and ad blocking via UBlock and AdBlock does NOT work beyond one page view. It seems the floating video frames are given unique tags each time the page loads so you would have to code every combination of the alpha-numeric identifiers they use. That number is something like equivalent to the number of all the grains of sand on all the beaches in the world, according to my calculator...

If I am directed to manipulate about:config again I think I will scream and pull my hair out. Such a major annoyance and I am to believe there is utterly no way to stop it ? After all these years and the FF developers haven't looked into this ? I find that hard to believe...

I have made Firefox my default browser on my laptop. When reviewing my account I noticed that the original username (e-mail address) I created the account with no longer exists. Is it possible to replace my new e-mail address for the old one, and use it as the new User Name?

  Thanks in advance for your help.

I've been using Spanish (Mexico) dictionary for a few years as my default spell checking dictionary. However, it lacks a lot of common words and local idioms that I use everyday.

How can I create a new dictionary for Spanish (Colombia), or contribute to the Mexican one? I can't find a Github repo with the project.

Has anyone noticed that many websites that use google tracking and analytics seem to work a lot slower on firefox than on chrome? I know most sites have some form on google tracking on them but some in particular work a lot slower on firefox than on chrome. In particular udemy.com, as well as my.onexamination.com I feel this is an issue due to firefox privacy containers, as the tracking on these websites is trying to get information which firefox is denying it, causing a delay in resolution. I prefer firefox but I am starting to use chrome for such websites. Any way I can speed up things on firefox and avoid chrome altogether?

Firefox Developer Edition On Ubuntu - Update Hassles

On Ubuntu, FFDE can be configured to

1. Auto-update - but it just displays a message saying that it cannot update

2. Download updates and request permission to install them - all it does is display a message saying a new update is available

I think this all stems from the fact that FFDE at present has to be manually installed on Ubuntu. Why this is so, I cannot fathom - maybe someone here has an answer to why open sourced op system users are inconvenienced by Firefox.

It's feasible to script an update procedure to Ubuntu for FFDE. But this will not stop the annoying (every 2 hours) pop-ups about new updates being available - even when there is no new update there . . .

Maybe FFDE could simply stop automatic update reminders altogether. Users can decide (or script) for themselves if they want to update.

Hello, I use 2 monitors if one of them has a live stream from Facebook then there are such flashes on the primary monitor while browsing. But only if Firefox is open on the primary monitor. Here is a video of the flickering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOsjhbInuQQ I had a system reinstall due to an SSD replacement, but the error persists. This error has occurred since the Windows 10 Pro 20H2 update. I have an RTX2070 card with the latest gpu driver.

Thanks for the help!

When I try to upload something to youtube music it keeps on showing up as an error despite being the right file extension. To test this I uploaded the same files on Chrome and they worked perfectly.

Problem was fixed upon fresh start /or resetting cookies and cache but both are annoying each time as I have to relog into everything each time this error happens.
