Hi all! Not sure why but since some weeks ago I cannot use firefox for google meet calls with my Bluetooth headphones. Everything else works fine but the mic just starts to sound weird and people cannot understand me.

I've tried with chrome and safari and the calls seem to work with no issue, it's just with FF.

Anyone else has experienced this? It's pretty uncomfortable to have to open an alternative browser just for calls when I'm using FF as my default for everything.

Pull requests on shavar-prod-lists are not being merged and pulled in Firefox to update domain blacklist that is causing site breakage https://github.com/mozilla-services/shavar-prod-lists/pulls.

At LinkedIn we are building a new page lnkd.in/interstitial that is breaking in firefox strict mode. To get this fixed we got the disconnect's list updated but their pull request is not being merged in shavar-prod-lists repo.

Please suggest if we need to do any next steps.

Youtube Chapters Hard to Read in Firefox

I've been noticing for a while that Youtube chapters were very hard to read if they were displaying over a white background. I thought this was just a Youtube issue but then I decided to boot up Edge and Brave to see if the issue still persisted. It doesn't. What happens in those browsers is that there is that the bottom part of the video is darkened just enough so that when the chapters are displayed there is enough contrast to read them. In Firefox this overlay cuts out before it reaches the chapters making them very difficult to read. I tried in Troubleshoot Mode and the issue persists.

I've linked pictures that demonstrate the difference.

Since 111 update I cannot reliably load the following websites Skynews.com - loads but when i click on an article on the home page the scroll bar disappears and firefox locks up. I have to use task manager where an extra 6-8 firefox sessions appear with 0% resource useage and I have to close them. thsi happens about 80% of the time. ITVnews.com - same as for sky news Netflix - opens ok but locks up when I click on the acount tile. Happens about 50% of the time

All the above sites woerk fine in Google chrome. There was no problem until 111. There was an update to 111 a few days later which meant it happened less often but stil 70%+ of the time. No toher websites i use have been affected. using windows pro 10.0.19044 build 19044.

I have tried refresh firefox, uninstall and re-install but stays the same

Yesterday I updated my mac mini OS to 13.3. From that time, when I use my home pod mini (airplay), firefox does not work on the sound.

I tried youtube and twitch, but neither sounds nothing when I turned it on with home pod mini.

I think it is a problem with firefox with up-to-date version macOS. It's because other browsers make sounds well such as Safari.

When I try to open websites from a google search, I get this error:


Can't access this service

This service is unavailable for Google Workspace for Education users marked as under the age of 18 by their administrator. Learn more


  • This doesn't happen with chrome.
  • If I enter a website directly in to the search bar, I am able to open the website; I just can't open it when going through google.
  • If I go through duckduckgo, I can open the website directly.
  • This doesn't happen for all websites, but the ones it happens to is weird. Today it was the Red Cross blood donation website.
  • I am over 18 and am noted as such in my google account and in my firefox account; I just double checked.
  • I am working on a PC using Windows 11 Pro. Firefox is up to date. I only have 2 extensions, neither of which block sites.
  • I tried going through google and accessing admin rights, can't do that so apparently I don't have admin rights through google. But again, I can open websites through google using chrome, just not firefox.

After the most recent (or possibly the one before) Firefox update, when I am streaming radio via a radio player website, the stream keeps switching itself off after 10 minutes regardless of other activity on the machine.

Apparently, this was reported a while ago (ca. 2020) but has only affected my experience per the above updates.

Windows 10, latest Firefox version, e.g., url: https://siradio.si/val202/ but same behaviour with others sites.

Firefox is my preferred browser. I have it running on several devices. Recently (within the last two days) I have not been able to sign into Outlook.Live.com on my Acer Laptop running Win10. I get a "something went wrong" message. Also, I can not open MSN.com. The MSN splash screen sits there with the progress bar dancing back and forth but nothing happens. I tried opening Firefox in troubleshooting mode but the same thing happens. I am able to successfully open both of these pages using MS Edge on the same device. I can open the Bing page (another MS site) in Firefox and it functions as usual. I also have Firefox on a Compac Presario Laptop running Win10. The same thing happens there. That laptop also has Chrome installed and both Outlook.Live.com and MSN.com work properly on that laptop with the Chrome browser. That same Compac Presario can be booted to Linux Mint. In that mode I have a copy of Firefox for Linux. When I use that, both Outook.Live.com and MSN.com work properly. Has there been a recent change to Firefox which might cause this behavior? What else can I do to troubleshoot this problem? Thanks Gary

I tried the shield, changing the settings, putting it in as an exception and I still can't get my programs to load tonight. I pay for this subscription and it worked before you changed your setup. Now I never know when firefox will let it load. I hate safari, but at least it loads my shows.

After the latest Firefox update (to version 112.0 64-bit) on Windows 10, some sites (such as msn.com and icloud.com) will show on the Firefox title bar, but will not load. If I switch to Firefox private viewing, they will load.

I have deleted all history and cookies, re-installed Firefox, and disabled my FireFox add-ons (Adblock and "disable autoplay"), yet the issue persists.

Any ideas as to what to do next?

Thanks.

Normally, when you full screen a video and swipe upwards, it allows you to put it in picture in picture view. However, it has stopped working for YouTube. I have tried it on other sites and it works and have even tried changing to an actual home button but I still can't get it into picture in picture form. I have noticed that it also doesn't trigger the notification that audio is playing on YouTube but it does on other sites. Another thing is that YouTube videos auto rotate when fullscreened in other browsers (Chrome,Opera,Brave) but remain in shrunken form and require me to annually activate auto rotate and spin the device.

Newest update is causing some kind of issue with youtube not resolved by clearing cache/history, disabling plugins etc. This problem only exists for youtube, and only on this browser. New windows do not help.

Trying to go to youtube results in a rapidly refreshing page. Elements of the page will start to load like normal, and then the page will immediately refresh. This continues without end. It is effectively inaccessible on this browser as is.
