I want you guys to fix the video playing on SvtPlay and maybe other sites too. So that it is not choppy anymore. I just played a video from the documentaries section on svtplay.se and it was choppy. The streaming of channels was not choppy though.

I use the latest version of Linux Fedora and Firefox.

I've been trying for some time to determine why my main Firefox profile, the profile I use most of the time, has a lot of trouble when I use Google Street View. The Street View screen essentially freezes when I try and use it. But, taking a tip from Firefox help I opened up a new profile in a new browser. When doing so, the existing Google Street View problem disappeared completely in the new browser. I call my new profile in the new browser my second Firefox browser to use. My question is, can someone explain why the problem disappears in my second Firefox browser? Looking at the options window when I open the Firefox menu, I see a few differences between the two browsers. The big difference is the second browser has much less applications in it. It has 7 applications where as my first browser has 21 applications. Is this the possible reason why the second browser doesn't have the problem that my first browser does? If so, how can I delete some of the applications in the first browser to see if that is the problem? I'm trying NOT to refresh my first Firefox browser as refreshing Firefox caused much problems for me in the past. And, it seems some Firefox aficionado's do say use caution when using a refresh. So, can someone please explain why the one browser, the new second browser, is void of the problem that plaques my first or original Firefox browser? Thank you.

Hello,

Just updated after a long time from 66.0.5 -> 72.0.2 -> 86.0. This is what FF wanted to do for some unexplained reason so I just let it.

Now when I open a new tab in an open window I get a white screen and nothing works. Entering a URL in the bar or pressing any of the buttons like home does nothing whatsoever. Just a blank white screen.

This is why I LOATHE updating anything! The odds of breaking something that was working perfectly is VERY high. Proved the point once again. I used to let FF update itself and then got burned by the Quantum update that trashed ALL of my open session windows. Turned auto-update OFF after that so that could manually grab and save a copy of the profile BEFORE any update happens.

So how do I fix this or is it a legitimate BUG that should be reported (and how to do same)?

Thanks, Steve

I have a number of OpenSearch search engines set up, all with custom names. So I could just type "g whatever" in address bar to search in google, "w whatever" for Wikipedia, "y something" for Youtube, etc. Search still works.

However, I could just type the name of opensearch engine in the address bar to go to those sites' associated search pages. See moz:SearchForm parameter here. As of Firefox 86 this behaviour seems to be broken. Even if I switch to specific search engine by typing in its name and hitting space, I can't just press enter to go to the website.

How do I fix it?

Hur gör jag för att förhindra att web-sidor eller script gör att facebook låser sig/går långsamt? Först märker jag att det börjar gå långsamt sen dyker en gul ruta upp som säger att det är en web-sida eller ett script som gör att det går långsamt och frågar om jag vill stoppa den. Jag trycker alltid på "stoppa den" men problemet kvarstår. Det enda jag kan göra är att stänga facebook och sen öppna på nytt, men det tar inte lång tid innan samma problem uppstår igen.

I was configuring some update on my windows, until it broke and I was unable to get anything out. Everything had to be formatted. While formatting I didn't remember about the codes, and when I tried to log in my account, it says I have entered wrong password. I do have some guess of what the password may be but I am not sure. So, what I do have right now: Email Authenticator

Is there a way for me to recovery my old password(not firefox, but the ones stored) using just them? If not, is there any limit of me entering wrong passwords? I think if given enough time, I might be able to crack it.

Many extensions ask for access to your entire browsing activity. While many extensions claim they are not doing so, this is not a technical restriction, but a policy restriction of their own.

In Chrome, there is a option within the browser to restrict extensions to operate within certain domains. For example, you could say that Honey is only allowed to run on *.amazon.com domains.

Is there a way to configure this option within FireFox? If not, what's the best way to request this feature be added? There are a number of extensions like Honey that are helpful for ecommerce and product research, but I want to provide a technical restriction to what data they can collect from the browser by restricting them to specific domains.
