duplicate of /questions/1443841 thread.

I cannot get firefox to update. It is set up for automatic updates but they don't happen. Even if I try manual installation of updates it says the update fails. I ran it in troubleshooting mode and the problem still exists. I restarted my computer and the problem still exists. I am using a mac running on Monterey. How can I get it to auto update again? (and even though it says failed to check for or install updates, it looks like I do have the latest version of firefox)

Mod - please delete. I couldn't find a way to delete my question so I edited it. I had an issue but I think it's due to my Firefox being Enterprise managed. I tested the same thing on my personal laptop with Firefox and no issue.

Thanks!

The spacebar does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using an iMac on macOS Monterey (V 12.6), and a Mac keyboard. It also causes the window I'm writing in to expand and contract in size. This happens when typing emails also. What do you recommend?

I tried everything in the message I received but there was no (obvious) way to reply. I will attach a screenshot of what is occurring. Search Baron is hijacking my web searches. If I specifically click on use google in the search bar then it works. If I just type a search phrase, search baron takes over (see the URL in the attached screenshot, that is what appears no matter what I search). I can open a web page fine.

I appreciate the quick reply from your support staff yesterday. I followed instructions and was able to turn off the GIFs but FOR ONLY ONE TIME. As soon as I exited Firefox, or even the current page and returned to it they were back on. How do I keep them off permanently?

Using Mac OS 12.4 and Firefox 101.0.1. After launching Firefox, a second icon appears in the "recently used" apps section of the Mac OS dock (see attached screen shot). The icon stays there and goes away, and then comes back, and then goes away, etc. This continues on and on until Firefox is closed.

Why is this happening? Never acted this way before the latest updates.

Mozilla Firefox ver. 50 not prompting user to install Java plug-in for legacy website

I have a user who runs SRS/Crystal Reports on their Windows 11 Lenovo laptop, but every time we go to the website where a Java-enabled pop-up window for viewing spreadsheets is supposed to load we keep getting a "A plugin is required to play this content" error message, but no option to install/approve the running of Javascript.

I have downloaded and installed the JRE and JDK on the endpoint device, but still no luck getting Firefox to load it. I am running the 32-bit version of the web browser, not 64-bit, so I am kind of stumped about how to proceed from here.

Is there a place I can manually download/install these Java plug-ins?

Thanks.

When playing music on music.youtube.com, if I navigate away from the tab, by either moving to a different tab or opening a different application the music pauses. This happens consistently with two different Firefox profiles.

I admittedly have a quite a few plugins installed, so I tested this in a private window and this issue does not occur.

I attempted disabling the obvious plugins UBlock, 'I don't care about cookies', and Tampermonkey without any success. I also tried using a different user-agent without any success.

edit: removed erroneous error information

I have the problem asked in [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1297208], and indeed I had turned on/true privacy.resistFingerprinting. But I've turned it off and reloading https://webbrowsertools.com/timezone/ still shows UTC time (though my system timezone is -0700 (CST)). I was going to ask what is wrong, when I realized I have to restart my browser. So submitting with that solution.

I watch videos on dropout.tv which uses the Vimeo SDK as their player for the videos. After switching to Firefox, the video progress has consistently started from where I left off on Chrome. The site doesn't remember where I ended the video when I watch it on Firefox. I assume this has to do with the cookies, but I've manually added "dropout.tv" to the list of exceptions in Firefox settings so that that site is always allowed to store cookies.

Returning briefly to Chrome, the player immediately tracked my progress again, so the issue is definitely related to Firefox somehow.
