Hi there,

I am able to play videos normally, however when I switch to full screen, it takes few seconds with a black screen till it shows the video. The audio continues to play just fine. When I exist the Full Screen, it does the same. When I switch to private browsing or other Firefox profiles, everything is fast and normal. It is just happening on one profile. I deleted the cache with no luck. I think Firefox is using HTML5 to play videos. I need to keep this profile as I would like to keep the history, opened tabs and bookmark. Any suggestion will be really appreciated.

Greetings!

Freshly installed Firefox 77.0.1 is lagging while working with WordPress based sites (I've never installed FF on this particular device (Win10 x64, ASUS + according to Everest hard-drive is completely fine) before, so there's no old settings stored) even if it's the only tab - there's a 4-5 second freeze each time. I don't use any add-ons while using FF here, but when I open the same websites via FF incognito (or Chrome) there's no problem with loading pictures, carousels and other interactive elements. What could be causing such behavior?

I have cleared cache according to Mozilla guidelines + tried other options (and haven't noticed such problem with other platforms), and it seems to me that this lag appears only at WP blogs.

Thanks in advance.

upd: sorry, completely forgot to add examples such as https://ftw.usatoday.com - I have also attached the screen of how it looks, https://blog.ted.com, https://www.ourhomesmagazine.com and others

Hello! Today my PC updated to Windows 10, version 1903, build 18362.900.

With the startup it introduced me to the "All new Microsoft Edge". I really wanted to use this browser for just work and nothing more, and wanted to keep my personal stuff in firefox as my main browser. However, I was unpleasantly surprised to see all my saved accounts and passwords, bookmarks in the "ALL NEW MICROSOFT EDGE". I know it's not Mozilla's fault for doing that (well not sure). However, little warning, that some browser that has nothing to do with firefox, is trying to access my data would've been nice, rather than just taking all my stuff and mixing it together. I believe this is a very, very bad security flaw and needs attention! You can't just give away my data like that. What if it was a malware or adware doing it without even asking? (not that edge is any different)

Yes, I probably 'have agreed' to get my stuff ported there, but I honestly did not expect something like that to happen without any warning on the Firefox browser's side.

I'm sorry, but as a firefox user for like 16 years, I am very disappointed.

Thanks for your time reading this.

Hello.

I had to restore my iMac from a year old backup and wanted to sync Firefox bookmarks so they reflect the latest that I have on my MacBook.

However, what happened was that ALL my devices now show... my year old bookmarks from the iMac backup.

In other words, the sync didn't updated the OLD with NEW but rather replaced NEW bookmarks with the old ones.

Is there a way to revert?

Thanks

There used to be a Pin Firefox feature where FF could be pinned to the screen above other apps, but in ver 77, that's disappeared. Where did it go? When is it coming back because losing that is a great disappointment to me; I used it every day. Come on people, sometimes changes are NOT in the best interests of the users.

Ever since switching from Chrome to Firefox, I have been unable to log in to Tumblr. I have checked my phone like five times to make sure I am using the right password - I am. I can successfully log in to Tumblr on my phone, but not on Firefox. This is the only website I have this problem with - I have tried to contact their support, but I figured I would contact Firefox support too since I don't know which side is causing the problem.

Please let me know what I should do.

Can I turn this off or what specifically is causing the issue? On this text field the problem does not occur, nor in Chrome or Safari.

Hello,

I have a issue loading one of my websites in Firefox as it throws "Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE" error.

This only happens in Firefox as the domain "https://www.createmytattoo.com/" seems to load fine in Chrome browser.

I did check the website in SSL Checker for any errors but it was clean and no issues. Below is the result:


https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://www.createmytattoo.com/


I tried reinstalling the certificate again but no luck. The server it runs is on Apache/2.2.15 and CentOS 6.9.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I'm working with an Ext JS web-app that requires taking in a barcode. The data comes in fine when scanning to Microsoft Word or Notepad but in Firefox, before the scan is complete, it will switch and reload tabs, open the download folder and just be wonky. I'm thinking it has something to do with shortcuts but I can't seem to find a setting that I can switch to stop it from happening. Any ideas?

Hi, Currently, it is possible to close tab only from line of Tabs on the top of the window. Unfortunately in this view, it is impossible to see the long name of Tab (in case if you have tens of it) and the user should open each Tab before close it. Would you add functionality to close Tabs from the Tabs dropdown list ( just add X at the right side of each line) or add some Tab Manager view (as you have for Bookmarks) with same close Tab function?

Thank you.
