On ubuntu 20.04, the snap version of firefox can't play some videos. Some youtube videos will play but streams won't, and then I get the message "to play video, you need to install the required video codecs". On telegram web and tweetdeck I also get this message while trying to play some video.

Since it's a snap, nothing I do on my system will solve the problem, I cannot install any codecs.

It's firefox 89.0

I'm a left handed mouse user. For editing purposes, I don't use my left hand, I use my right hand. And, generally use the right handed keyboard shortcuts as defined by Microsoft a long time ago. I've notice that some of the short cuts have been implemented, while others are not. It is possible to implement them all, as it's annoying when I try to do a copy and paste operation, and have to .. Left Click .. my mouse to execute a copy operation, while pressing [ SHIFT + INSERT ] to do the paste operation. I would prefer to just press [ CTRL + INSERT ] to copy.

PS .. I've also noticed that [CTRL + END] works, while [CTRL+ HOME] does not.

Could anyone have a idea how to limit Firefox from opening so many sub-processess, with (wanting or not) are mostly causing that my system runs out of memory and stop beeing responsible to any of my inputs, with forces me to restart the system (similar thing is done by an DOS attack)

Why does Firefox share data between google domains even with all privacy options on?

I have noticed that when I manually log in into accounts.google.com with no prior cookies in the browser and no association with a google account prior to that, it automatically logs me into sites like youtube.com, even with the strictest cookie policies (tried with Strict, custom+cross-site and custom+third-party). I do not particularly mind privacy wise since I'll log into them with the same account anyways, but as far as I understood, there should be absolutely no way this should happen. Cookies should be isolated by domain, I have uBlock Origin installed which prevents cookie sharing between domains by setting some CNAME records in subdomains (Uncloak canonical names), and afaik Firefox does not automatically read the google account cookies and share them around - if it did, that would be even more serious. So what is happening here and how can I change that? This seems to be a serious issue that I'm honestly not comfortable with out of principle since I chose the strictest settings.

Hi,

 I am unable to load discounttire.com. I get a white page although the address is shown. This problem is specific to this computer. I've tried clearing cache/cookies, running in safe mode, changing IPv6 & DNS prefetching settings, run full system virus scan & Malwarebytes. As far as I know this is the only website where this problem exists. On this computer I can access the website using another browser. Any help appreciated.

Hello,

The gestures defined by browser.gesture.swipe.* do not work on Firefox Linux unless the ALT key is held down. I only discovered it that worked at all with ALT by accident while searching about this issue...

Is there a way to get gestures to work WITHOUT requiring the use of the keyboard (which would seem to defeat the purpose of having touchpad gestures)?

Thanks.

I just updated Firefox on an older laptop. Due to the age of the old version, I could not update Firefox but had to download and install the latest version (the old v was a couple of years old). I exported my bookmarks with no problem but could not find in the old version where to export my passwords. So I took screen shots of each of the password pages. When I installed the new version of FF, it found my bookmarks and imported them with no problem. It did not find and import my passwords (#@$#@!!). Sooooo... I spent all morning going to each page with saved logins, reentering my login info, and saving it. When I tried to go back to the pages, NO LOGIN INFORMATION WAS SAVED! WTFF?! I went into the password manager and there were NO PASSWORDS SAVED. I tried to enter the password info and it would not save them and instead gave me an error. Trying to create a new master password gave me an error.

WHAT do I need to do to get this... software... to save my frickin' login information and passwords??!!

NOT a happy camper right now! I have used FF for going on 20 years or so and am not a newbie or an amateur at this (which is why I screenshot all the password pages!).

OH, this is my SECOND attempt at asking support for help, the first time everything was lost when I tried to add a screen shot of the errors... Grrrrrrr...

Recently Firefox (both regular and dev edition) started showing monospace fonts in SF Mono Heavy variant. I use macOS 11.4 and Firefox Developer 90.0b6 but it happens with Firefox 89.0 as well, even in Troubleshooting Mode.

Below is a screenshot of a GitHub page. The same page rendered in Safari or Chrome on the same device show normal variant of SF Mono. Notice that the code on the page is rendered in heavy weight.

Running inspector mode shows that Firefox selects SF Mono Heavy even though regular variant is clearly present in the system.

I have tried disabling hardware acceleration and webgl. Are there any other ways to troubleshoot and fix the bug?

I am using an offline web page as my default firefox home page and all was going well until I enabled sync. Now when I boot up firefox two things happen. It changes the address for my home page file to a folder NOT on this computer (the desk top) and won't retain the address I need for that folder.

I have just tried editing the bookmark for page. At the moment it seems to be working but I think sync is causing this issue and wonder if there is a fix for it?

Thank you.

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?

Hello!

I've been using Firefox with a screen reader for a few months now because I recently had issues arise with my vision and needed to get one. I use NVDA, which is a free screen reader, and before the update to version 89.0, it worked flawlessly, but the new update has created a unique issue that I haven't found a fix for.

Say hypothetically that I am using Firefox and my screen reader is working fine with it. If I close Firefox and then re-open it, all webpages, including the new tab page, can no longer be read by my screen reader. All it will speak is the tab title or the word "unknown" whenever focusing on the webpage. This also happens when the computer is first turned on. The only way I can temporarily fix the issue is by reinstalling Firefox via the latest installer I've gotten from Mozilla's site, and once the installer itself opens Firefox, it works again. If I close the program or restart my computer, I need to run the installer again to fix the issue.

This isn't too big of a deal for me, since it doesn't take long to run the installer and Firefox is reliable after that, but I could see this being a bigger issue for other people with vision issues if they aren't aware of the installer fix. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? I know it's a rather specific issue that doesn't apply to a majority of Firefox users, but this is a notable accessibility issue that I wanted to bring up since there doesn't seem to be a permanent solution to the issue in version 89.0 of Firefox and nobody else has seemed to have reported the issue as of when I'm writing this.

Additionally, if this helps, my current installation of NVDA is marked at version 2020.4. If any more specific information is needed, please let me know and I will try to provide it as quickly as I can. I also don't know if this is necessarily an issue of Firefox needing to fix support with NVDA or if NVDA is the one I should be contacting about this, but just since I'm getting this odd behavior only when closing and re-opening Firefox, I wanted to ask here first.

Thank you!
