Hello,

On MacOS 14.0(Sonoma) Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), facing the problem with web.whatsapp.com chat messages. The timestamps for the messages are displayed in UTC and not as per the system time(IST, in my case).

- web telegram shows correct timestamps, opened in same browser session - web whatsapp on Chrome shows correct timestamps - fingerprinting is set to false(was not touched at all).

Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks. -Sachin

Greetings:

I regularly access the ‘Bill O’Reilly DotCom’ site via Mozilla Firefox. Recently following a service interruption (now corrected), I could not open the site at the homepage (https://www.billoreilly.com) through any browser. Eventually, the issue self-corrected on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, but persists at Firefox. Whenever I enter "https://www.billoreilly.com" into the address line, I am instead booted over to a site at "https://na.billoreilly.com/" (see image), an all-white blank page save for the 'Bill O'Reilly DotCom' logo and a message reading:

"BillOReilly.com is not available in this country. We apologize for any inconvenience."

The insertion of the 'na.' into the homepage address might indicate a default change in access possibly caused by a virtual private network being shifted to a different region, with 'na' connoting another country. But my VPN is set for 'United States' and is presently disconnected. Repeatedly removing the ‘na.’ from the address line and manually entering the correct home page address is useless – it continues to reinsert the ‘na.’ And as indicated, my Chrome and Edge browsers have no such problem accessing this homepage, so this is obviously an issue relative to Firefox.

Fortunately, I can freely access 'Bill O'Reilly Dotcom' content through their other links. But the loss of the homepage is nonetheless a nuisance. Please impart any information or wisdom you may have on ameliorating this issue. I have contacted 'Bill O'Reilly Dotcom' about this matter as well

I have defined custom fonts for some languages, but they're not appearing as I defined them. Instead, the OS default fonts are showing up.

This is happening after I reinstalled Firefox in my device. Before that, the fonts were appearing as defined.

For example: English text is using Arial instead of Noto Sans, and Japanese text is using Meiryo instead of Noto Sans CJK JP.

For the Japanese font, it does show up correctly in the address bar, but not in the page itself.

Am I understanding this correctly?

HTML backup (bookmarks) doesn't support tags and annotations, but JSON backup does, and JSON backup doesn't preserve the website favicons, but HTML backup does?  

So, what I can do, is restore my (saved) bookmarks using JSON backup, then restore the HTML backup, this would get my tags and annotations, and the website favicons back? But the downside, I will need to remove duplicates?

Background connections made by Firefox to fetch icons and site screenshot without user permission is a privacy flaw. I have noticed this through about:processes.

For a while Google Drive's cloud interface hasn't been able to show "information" about files, i.e. pictures, text, file-data. The fault is not present in Android, Chrome and Edge so it is not Google Drive that is buggy. I'd rather not change to another web browser. Please present a fix.

I can hear perfectly in other browsers so this problem only exists when using Firefox. I have tried all the suggested remedies with no success.

Not exactly sure when it started, but youtube shorts are broken in Firefox now.

You can scroll to the next video fine, but if you continue to scroll to the next after that (3rd consecutive video) you get redirected to the first video you started with.

I did try to restart FF in Safemode, but no change. In other browsers (Chrome, Edge) its still working.

Youtube playlist videos won't play continuously after 2-3 video

Hello, everyone.

4-5 days ago, I've noticed weird YouTube playlist behavior. When I start playlist and switch to a different tab (or minimize browser) first video will play normally and it will autoplay the next one. But after finishing playing 2d video (3d in some cases) video will just stop at the end of playbar and not autoplay the next one in playlist. Playlist for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giUY_pEKTzY&list=OLAK5uy_nKmglmCCbx14WeFyH8e7YGYcL5skYwnp0&index=1

It's rather easy to replicate, I can record desktop video if needed.

Expected behavior: I can start YouTube playlist playing and switch to a different tab or minimize browser and playlist will only stop after playing last video in said playlist (unless "Loop playlist" option is enabled).

What I've tried to do so far: 1) Googling: I only was able to find old thread and the culprit was extension: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/952608 2) Disabling Extensions and confirming issue in Troubleshoot Mode: Did not help 3) Clear cache & cookies for YouTube: Did not help 4) "Allow Audio and Video" autoplay for YouTube: Did not help 5) Confirming issue in another browser: Works as intended in Opera 6) Checking about:config: I'm not that savvy with Firefox config to understand what may cause an issue. Tried to change media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground to False. Did not help, rolled it back to True.

What I have noticed: 1) Firefox recent update: 118.0.2 October 10, 2023: Correlates when I started experiencing this issue. 2) YouTube playlists plays next video continuously just fine if I don't minimize browser or switch to a different tab. 3) There is a Firefox extension that does exactly what I don't want in my experience: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/no-playlist-autoplay-for-yt/ I installed it just to check. And yes, it does what expected and it is similar to what I'm experiencing. Although it stops playlist after finishing first video, my issues go into the affect after playing first video. (Deleted it after testing)

Before posting I've tried a few different things and here where things gets extremely weird: 1) It works just fine in Firefox if I log out from my YouTube account: (Incognito/Main tab) Do not work if I'm logged in, even in Incognito. However... 2) It works just fine in Opera if I'm logged in my YouTube account. 3) It works just fine if I open playlist in mini-player. (Current workaround)

After all that weirdness I attempted to Clear cache & cookies for YouTube and it did not help once again.

P.S. Yes, I use YouTube as a music player. :)

After upgrading Ubuntu from 18.04 to 22.04, I attempted to import my old profile data into the new version of Firefox (118.0.2). All attempts following the instructions at [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-fire...] failed.

Following the instructions at [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing...], I deleted the profile.ini file.

Since then, Firefox does not open. I still get the message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." The only option is to press the OK button at which point, FIrefox closes.

There is no current information in the crash logs and I can't find any error logs.

Hi; Search engine does not open in new tab. This is not how it used to work. Not sure when this started, possibly when windows updated to Win11(2 weeks ago), but not sure. I think there used to be a setting for opening a search in new tab, but I can not find it. I have "Add search bar in toolbar" checked. I use DDG as search engine. I did lookup in FF help but found 10yr old answers. I am sure many things have changed since then.

Also when searching FF help is there a way to sort by newest first?

TIA
