I was attempting to log in to my work email using firefox. When I attempt to log-in, it comes up with a message that says "disable ad blockers, enable Javascript, or use a different browser." I checked the add-ons and currently do not have any set up. I have enabled Javascript. I tried resetting firefox to default settings. I tried turning off enhanced tracking protection. I even attempted using Microsoft edge and nothing is working to help me get into my email. I was able to use firefox earlier today and did not have this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Good evening To see video from my cameras I need to install LsNvrNetClient plugin. I downloaded HsVRWebPlugin_9.1.34.3.exe and installed it to the directory C: \ Program Files (x86) \ HsVRWebPlugin.

In this folder I can find: HSAVPlayer.dll, HSRtspAccess.dll, LibThread.dll, npLsNvrNetClient.dll, unins000.dat, and unins000.exe. In help I found advice from the supplier: For Firefox browser, Left-click on the upper right corner of the browser "Open Menu" and select "add-ons" to find "LsNvrNetClient", select the "Always active"

In plugins (CTR + SHIFT + A) I don't have "LsNvrNetClient". What can I do?

Hi all.

I was just setting up my Firefox account. I was asked for my age. I entered it, and was about to move on to the next step when the figure I entered was rounded up by one. Live in my browser.

Is this something that the sign-in page does on its own? I tried to replicate it but it did not happen again.

Is it possible that someone has access to my PC, or at least my browser session?

If this question seems nutty, I agree. I'm not paranoid and have never seen anything like this happen before. If anyone can explain this event, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,

John

Hello Firefox Forum,

I get green videos when using hardware acceleration. intel_gpu_top shows decoding action when I start firefox with: MOZ_WAYLAND_DRM_DEVICE=/dev/dri/renderD129 LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=i965 MOZ_X11_EGL=1 MOZ_WEBRENDER=1 firefox

There's only 3 lines of error in the console, so I don't think it's related:

Can anyone help me identify the issue? I would really like to use the hw acceleration.

With best regards LuxidEx

I'm on a Mac, running the latest version of Firefox. Recently I've had some work to do that meant I wanted to keep multiple tabs open, so I changed my settings to 'restore previous session' so I'd get my tabs back when I turned my computer off/on.

For a few days all was going well, then Firefox crashed. I managed to get it back up again and change the setting so it wasn't trying to restore multiple tabs. But since then no luck, Firefox opens but I get the spinning wheel curser and Firefox shows as non-responsive, I have to force quit the app.

I've tried uninstalling it, still no luck. I'm writing this from Google Chrome.

Can anyone help? I much prefer Firefox, but it's currently unusable for me, and as the browser freezers I can't get into any of the settings etc.

I have resist fingerprint settings turned on because I use keyboard shortcuts to open specific webpages / notes and I need the pages to be the same size when I launch the new instance of the browser.

but now the browser thinks I am in UTC. I need the browser to report I am in a different time zone, because nextcloud keeps assuming that my browser is telling the truth.

I cant / wont install third party add ons.

I am trying to fix a situation on my parents computer that uses Firefox. We had to uninstall Firefox, reboot and reinstall the Firefox browser. After doing this I expected to be able to "Login" using her email and password, she had lost her password so I assumed there would be a "forgot password" link available to recover it. Instead this was not an option, after entering email it went straight to an option to enter a new password. There does not appear to be a point to recover a lost password, or to enter it in a new login after doing a new install. I found some tips while doing a Google search that instructed to click on the user icon in the toolbar and a reset would be there but that was not available either. Any suggestions.

Update came and I became furious that the pdfviewer is changed (I could write you a 300 page book why the forced UI and changes to user settings are terrible and hated everywhere). I would like to use the previous version (with the dark background), not this white version which burns out my eyes. I really hope that there is an option for this and only I could not find it.

Thanks in advance!

P.s: I do not want to install any themes/plugins/whatevers to solve this problem, the previous Firefox pdf viewer did not need them.

Ever since the last update to 85.0, firefox for Windows 10 has begun to lag where mouse, scroll or keyboard inputs are delayed. CPU and other resources via task manager are low and firefox task manager provides no insight to me either.

This only happens in firefox, all other programs work fine. I have tried disabling plugins with no change in results.

Anyone else experiencing this or have any suggestions?

After a reboot, clicked to open firefox. Message said it already open. Tried another computer reboot. Tried uninstall and was stopped by message saying firefox open and must be closed to uninstall. Downloaded both install packages and neither worked. The small package was stopped with a message, "Humm, ...did not work... try again...". the Big package just hung at about 90% saying "A little housekeeping".

Am baffled, and hope someone can help.

Thanks,

When I restarted Firefox after a freeze, I did NOT get the familiar message that lets me choose to restore all windows. When opened, Firefox showed only ONE window (the one I was working in when it froze up). The Firefox menu (upper right corner) does NOT display a Restore Previous Session option. It's as if all the windows open in my last session never existed. Is there any way I can still reopen them now?

Hello. Quite simply, I am unable to log into my SimpliSafe home security account using Firefox 85.0 on macOS Big Sur 11.2 When attempting to do so, a perpetual loop of verification email followed by return to the original log in page occurs. Able to log in with out issue from Safari browser, so fairly certain the problem is not with SimpliSafe but rather a filter within my Firefox settings. Am not tech savvy enough to attempt changing Firefox browser settings to fix this issue. Please help, and thanks. Jeff
