Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Firefox is slowing my download speed and as of the last two days I cannot stay signed in on my email account at the homepage "currently.att.yahoo.com. I have no such problem with the same homepage with Microsoft Edge. If you have a solution to these problems which I did not have for years please email it to me at [email removed from public]. In the meantime I will stay with Microsoft Edge as my browser of choice.

Firefox Prevents Windows Taskbar From Appearing

When using Firefox, my Windows (10) taskbar, which I have set to autohide, will not appear when I move my mouse cursor down to the bottom of the screen, like it is supposed to, and like it does with literally every, single other program I have installed on my laptop. This is NOT a Windows problem, and I see many, MANY others complaining of this issue; it's a problem with Firefox (and, also the Waterfox browser, which is heavily based on Firefox, and which I've currently switched to, because IT doesn't force us to use whatever hideous, mind-numbingly boring font that is that a recent Firefox update began forcing us to use). I can get the taskbar to appear if I press the Windows key, but I don't have to do that with any other program, and I shouldn't have to do it with Firefox/Waterfox.

And, no - I do NOT use Firefox/Waterfox in fullscreen mode.

Does anyone know why this is happening, or what can be done to correct this issue? I cannot find any setting anywhere in Firefox/Waterfox that might affect this. Deleting/renaming the xlustore.json file has zero effect, and I have no localstore.rdf file. No matter what I do, when using Firefox or Waterfox, my Windows taskbar will not appear when I move the mouse cursor down to where it should pop up (the taskbar functions perfectly normal when I use MS Edge).

Is Mozilla aware of this issue? Are they going to do anything about it? It's VERY annoying!

This is going to sound bad so forgive me. I bought this computer and no one has any right to install anything I don't want!!! This is the fourth time in 2 months that Firefox has updated against my settings. I hope and pray someone can tell me how to stop this once and for all . I am a decorated veteran disabled and this is causing my ptsd to come back and I don't want to hurt anyone I've seen more killing than I ever want.If firefox updates and causes me all this time lost never to be gotten back again I am going to loose it. So please someone help me and I am writing a very nice letter to the CEO of firefox as soon as I find the address. I would like to get his computer and put all the things I want on it 4 time in 2 months and put my foot where he sits. Can anyone honestly think that this is right ? If you do send me your computer and let me make changes to it. I'm running windows 10 home and am always up to date except I'm running FF version 94.0 . If you want to know why it's because some genius decided that the latest version 97 doesn't need rt ck copy & paste and man I would like to see that guy with a flat tire on a long highway on a hot summer day so I could drive by and give him the one finger wave. I'm not going to apologize because firefox raped my computer again. I hate people doing things they have no right to do and I fought for everyone to have the right to free speech and thats a joke anymore. I rarely get this angry and most people will tell you I help anyone in need but I've had all this violation of privacy and owners right violation I intend to put up with.Last of all I'm terrible at all this tech stuff I have dyslexia and it takes me a lot more to learn the simple things. I hate to even ask for help but whoever helps me will be a true hero I can assure you of that and if any of you have any dirt on the CEO send it to me and I'll see to it that he stops allowing this. Thanks for listening to me blow off some steam and you know I haven't had a drink in 21 years but I'm tempted as hell right now. Thanks again and if you can't help me thanks anyway. I don't have the money to pay the geek squad I've had cancer 3 times and 2 surgeries in the last 7 years and guess who got my life savings. Blessings to you and all you love and pray for Canada and keep one eye open causer they more than likely are going to pull that crap here and I promise you about 90% of the ones claiming to be a patriot will crawl up inthe fetal position and cry for mommy the first bullet whizzes by there head I've seen soldiers fully trained do it. Have a great day you guys

The confirmation email we sent to ... @gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account.

This gmail account is still active and I own it!

I have been happy with Nimbus capture for years .. until recently. The Nimbus product no longer seems to work correctly in FF, but does in Chrome. Perhaps as a result of a FF update? When using the capture fragment or slected area, it just highlights the text, the capture box has disapppeared and cannot save any captures, so useless to me now.

I have Windows 10 Laptop. 64bit. Everything opens, but then it says "not connected to internet". I go to settings and, sure enough, it says it is not connected. So I choose my internet listing and click "connect". It doesn't connect. Other devices in the house connect just fine so it is only on this laptop. I called my provider and they ran tests and told me all was fine on "their end" so it must be a browser issue. They suggested I uninstall and then reinstall Mozilla. I went in first and made sure I had all the updates from Mozilla and it said I did. I have Chrome (came with the laptop) browser installed on the laptop, however I never use it. So, I assume I would go to Chrome and then to Mozilla site and download from there? However, if I uninstall, then reinstall...what do I lose? I particularly want to save bookmarks and passwords. I am just a novice at this.. a "senior" novice to be specific, so the "version for dummies" would be appreciated if anyone can help me. Thank you
