This is a silly problem, every youtubers nightmare I'm sure. I can't like or subscribe on Youtube via Firefox. I'm getting "Your session has expired." whenever I try to do either. I can sucessfully do both on a different browser on the same machine and other machines with this browser do not have this issue. I am running Windows 10. I have tried starting firefox in safe mode, refreshing firefox, deleting all cached content and cookies, renaming the cookies.sqlite file to cookies.sqlite.old and still no results. I've tried disabling every extension that I have and still nothing. I've exhausted my internet search. Is there anything else I might be missing?

Again, I'm logged in to youtube while this happens, clicking on the "sign in" only brings me to the channel page when trying to subscribe and gives me the same message when clicking it again. Also, can't add videos to playlists.

Hi all. Mozilla Firefox is very slow on my Linux Laptop with the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565/AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (with open-source driver ath9k). It takes a lot of time to resolve hosts and to load the webpages.

I am reporting the issue here because Chromium and the rest of web explorers work good and they are as fast as one may expect. When using Windows 10 with the same laptop, Firefox also has no issues and works perfectly well. It appears to be an issue of the combination of Firefox + this specific driver & network adapter.

Used Manjaro, Ubuntu 16, Ubuntu 20 with a lot of kernels ranging from 4.15 to 5.8 and the issue persists and does not seem to be tied to any specific distribution.

I can do some tests if you require so.

Hello,

in our company we use firefox esr 78.2 and have blocked the installation of add-ons with our gpo-settings. But we need the openh264-codec-plugin to work (for video conferencing). Is there a chance to only allow / whitelist the openh264-plugin, so firefox can complete this codec-installation ?

We need something like the chrome-policy ExtensionInstallWhitelist: https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3#ExtensionInstallWhitelist

The latest Firefox (80.0.1) doesn't recognize or allow installation of the add-on (amba_5.1.0.13_win--1548386245064.exe) to be able to view my security camera (Foscam FI9928P). Prior to the update, I was able to access the camera just fine. Now I have to use Chrome or IE to be able to view camera web interface.

I am not sure what the Mozilla folks changed, but it really stinks to not be able to use FFox with my security cameras.

Is there a fix for this issue?

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

So, I want to run Firefox from the command line withoug address bar and in a new window. I found that I can enable ssb and try it with: firefox -ssb http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This doesn't work, so I tried: firefox -ssb -url http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This opens it, not in a new window but in a new tab of an already existing session, and the ssb argument doesn't seem to work. Then, I tried: firefox -new-window http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This does work but again, there's still the address bar. The -ssb argument works with websites like google.com etc. but not local sites like the address I mentioned there. What do I do?

SO, I had 2 windows and 11,678 tabs open. (I guess I hoard). Anyways, FF slow response times caused me to do a FILE/EXIT. (I've noticed after restart, my response times go back to normal).

While doing the FILE/EXIT, FF crashed. I was surprised by that. In the popup I selected RESTART. But, that crashed again. On the next popup dialogue box I selected QUIT. Then I opened FF again (after verifying all the processes in TASK MANGER had ended. That crashed. I again selected RESTART in the popup. Crashed again. Then selected QUIT. I clicked on FF to start, and this time the SAFEMODE popup appeared. I selected SAFEMODE - but that attempt crashed also. On the next popup I tried RESTART - and another crash. Finally, I tried SAFEMODE again, and FF is now running in safemode. I did notice it had 1 less tab - 11,677 now.

So, I read that if FF crashes during a SAFEMODE startup - it's likely not an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration issue.

So, I am in SAFEMODE right now. I don't know what to look for at this point. Can someone help me? Can anyone read the crash reports to see what my issue might be? Or give me other advice before trying to EXIT safemode and start FF again in normal mode?

The last several submitted FF crashes from today are below:
