Hello, this is getting annoying, i already reinstalled Firefox and again i get this message in top right corner: "Firefox can't update". I have checked in setting: automatically install updates. However i disabled background service. I don't want to use it. And automatic updates are still enabled, so there shouldn't be reason for it - to not work. Thanks for answer.

Colors are distorted in MP4 video as you can see in the attached screenshot. The distorted colors impact video on many sites including yourlearning.ibm.com, webex.com, twitter.com, mlb.com, etc. They do not impact youtube.com which displays video correctly. My Firefox version is 68.10.0esr (64-bit) and my OS is RHEL 7.8, kernel version 3.10.0-1127.13.1.el7.x86_64, Gnome Version 3.28.2

I have tried running in safe mode but the issue persists.

How do get Firefox to display MP4 video with correct colors?

This is on Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit Since latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox is shutting itself down automatically whenever I click to close an active tab and there is only one extra tab open that is an empty “Private Browsing” tab. Before the latest update to version 79.0 (64-bit), Firefox did not shut itself down automatically. The blank “Private Browsing” tab would remain open and Firefox would keep running normally. Thanks for any help.

Hey, I'm using the restore previous session feature. Its really helpful, but I assume since the last update it is not working properly. Whenever I use the private firefox browser (window) parallel to the normal one (window) and close the normal browser before the private one, my last active session of the normal browser is not restored.

When I close the private firefox window before the normal firefox browser window everything works fine with restoring the tabs.

Any way around? And please fix this annoying bug. Thanks!

The newest version of Firefox, 79, is the only one that's been doing this. Every time I power up the browser, I try clicking my Twitter option, either in the bookmark bar or in the highlights, if Twitter has cookies, it won't work unless I click it a second time. If I remove the cookies, it works the first time again, but will revert to not working the first time after power up after browsing Twitter even once.

Hi

I want to be able to stop autofill for a single website but keep it on for everything else.

I run a website that means I have to input a lot of data into boxes and Firefox annoyingly wants to auto fill every box meaning the data gets messed up from time to time.

Is there anyway to disable it for single sites?

Thanks

I can start a youtube video but the mouse will not click on "skip ads" or pause the video or move the video to different times within the video. The same thing happens on other sites, for example I can click on walmart.com and then all other clicks will not function cannot proceed any further within the site. I have uninstalled/reinstalled firefox, I have tried safe mode and I have disabled all add ons. I use the default theme and nothing works. This was not an issue prior to the most recent update. The only way for me to post this is via Edge and edge is crappy.

My Firefox Browser has just updated itself automatically to 78.0.2 (I use it with MacOs 10.14.16). Since then, I have been unable to access Wikipedia. Whether I enter an url or I try a search through the search bar with the Wikipedia module the result is the same: nothing happens at all. If the url bar is empty it remains empty, if there was another url before it comes back instead of the wikipedia url I typed. The same thing is occurring on both my MacBook Air and my iMac which run under a previous version of MacOs.

Whenever I visit any website to play music or watch videos no sound is provided. I can visit the same sites using Chrome and the all play sound. I can play music that resides on my PC without any issues. I have re-installed Firefox but to no avail - still no sound. My sound settings are not muted either in Windows, when on the various sites and within Firefox itself. I have Autoplay permissions set to allow video and audio. I am using 79.0 (64 bit) What is the problem and how do I resolve it?

In the last few days, a process called MainThread, using a lot of CPU time, has started appearing in my Ubuntu system monitor "top". I was worried that it was malware, and checked to see if it might be part of software I had recently installed. After checking with the software providers I had most recently dealt with, I didn't find any that said the MainThread process belonged to them. Then I noticed that the "firefox" process had disappeared from the system monitor. I suspect that MainThread is the new name for firefox, but I would like some confirmation of that theory. If that is the case, why change the name of the process from something recognizable to something unrecognizable? Thanks for any help you can give!

Recently switched over from Chrome and I'm liking it so far with one semi-major annoyance.

If I'm watching a YouTube (or any site) video in full screen mode, I don't see any of my Mac notifications until I exit full screen. With Chrome, those notifications continue to appear while I'm in full screen.

Is there any setting in Firefox I can enable or disable to change that behavior?
