Recently, every time I go to YouTube on Firefox it only half signs me in. When I sign in, the home page of YouTube will look normal until I click on one of my playlists or the "add to watch later" button on any video. Then, it will ask me to sign in again. This only occurs on Firefox, other browsers are still fine. And, I've already tried refreshing Firefox, clearing my cache, and reinstalling. Any ideas?

When I type facebook.com into my address bar I keep getting sent to m.facebook.com/?refsrc...etc.,etc. Then when I log in from that address I'm at m.facebook.com/?_rdr, which is apparently what people with cell phones or iPads see. Why is this? What should I do? Thanks

I can no longer use Firefox web browser to go to my email in yahoo. Every time I try to log in with my correct password I get reCAPtCHA protected window, which does not work properly and I can never get by this box.

So I have not choice in the matter of using Firefox for my personal email. I do not have this issue in Chrome or Safari.

Is it something in the security settings of Firefox that is causing this issue?

Hi,

I just downloaded Firefox on my new PC (laptop) but for an unknown reason opening a link in a new tab doesn't work. Opening a link in a new window doesn't work either, and opening the link in a new private window does not work either. It is getting frustrating to say the least, as I've never encountered this problem before and I have no idea what to do. :)

Thank you kindly in advance for your help!

I am getting sick of the message "A script from the extension...is running on this page" It relates to Adblock Plus which is the extension. I watch a YouTube video and then this message comes up on another YouTube tab I have open and Firefox switches to that tab and ruins my watching the video I was watching.

Is there anyway of disabling the message from ever coming up? I increased the values in dom.max_script_run_time and dom.max_script_run_time_without_important_user_input which was a possible solution I read but that does nothing.

So, I've been using the Picture-in-Picture feature of Firefox a lot - when it works well, it's a really useful feature, especially if, like me, you use a second screen to play the video on, but don't like the overlay constantly popping up over the video. And, when the video is in a modern, widescreen aspect ratio, it usually works.

The problem is that when I try to watch, in fullscreen, a video that's in a 4:3 ratio, as many are on Netflix, Amazon and the like, the Picture-in-Picture window will often, presumably registering the black space on either side, zoom right into the video, cutting off a massive portion of the frame and filling the screen completely. Sometimes it doesn't do that at all, sometime it can be fixed by restarting the video and fiddling with the timings and sometimes there's just seemingly nothing I can do and it just will not stop doing it, no matter how much I reload or what I do!

Please tell me how I can get the damn thing to just keep the video in place and stop it deciding "Hey! You don't need to see all of the video, do you?! No, of course you don't!"

Firefox, latest version, keeps logging me out of sites. I have tried all troubleshooting suggestions offered on the web that I could find, short of starting all over by resetting profile, which I do NOT want to do.

Anyone have any suggestions other than the standard ones about cookies, preference settings having to do with cookies, private browsing, deleting all cookies, deleting cookies files in profile folder, extension issues, etc?

Thank you!

I keep getting freezes, slow downs, sometimes a warning that a page is slow to respond. I'm running FF 83.0. I have the following add-ons: - AdBlock - Colorful Tabs - Hover Zoom - Scroll Zoom - Search by Image.

I'm guessing one of the add-ons is causing the problem, but don't know which one. I've done the restart firefox to stop freezes multiple times. Still happens. Any ideas?
