Mozilla was supposed to be the alternative, the social alternative to shite-house browsers such as bulky and derrr IE, and tracking everything you do Chrome. NOW it is obvious you are just a second GOOGLE CHROME! You fools have lost your pride, your vision and respect for your constituent users. You even have that stupid ass google homepage that gives away everywhere you have been as well??? Are you fricking serious????? F- you, Chrome shills! You are as retarded as the google nazis.

dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1086066


Hi.

I have a system with Windows XP. I have Firefox on it. The version is 41.0. I recently updated it. Youtube will only play videos at 360p. I installed the 'Youtube Flash Video Player' that allows me to change from Flash and HTML5. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-flash-video-player/

a user called jscher2000 suggested this in another thread, I did this:

"Could you check these preferences and see whether disabling them helps:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste media. and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If either of these are set to true, try double-clicking to set them to false:

   media.mediasource.mp4.enabled
   media.windows-media-foundation.enabled (may not exist) "

I have DivX Plus Web-player HTML5 plug-in but it is not signed and cannot be verified. I get this web-page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct


Should I update DivX and download the newest one into Windows? Or this is a Firefox plug-in and Windows XP issue?

I go here: https://www.youtube.com/html5 In Windows Vista I can have all the boxes blue. But not XP. Is it possible in Windows XP?

Classic theme restorer is supposed to work for versions up to mine but it is disabled all of a sudden. I am not updating this version because I want the version , look and feel as it was. So according to the add on it should still be working on version 41 that I am using. However at some point last week it suddenly popped up as disabled and says it will not work with this version although the add on says it should. I am not looking for comments about how I should up date to the latest and greatest crap that Mozilla is putting out, I know all that and do not need the reminders. As far as that goes I do not know why I use a product from such an intolerant bunch of whiners any way.

When I want to add videos on my playlists in my YouTube-account, I get just these last days the message: "Details: The feature you requested is currently unavailable. Please try again later."

With Chrome it works perfect. So it is a Firefox issue.

Anyone smart enough to give the solution?

I use Windows 10, Avast Online Security (tried with and without proxyserver, proxy in Firefox set to "system"), Adblock Plus, Flash Video Downloader. These are the only add ons I use.

There is a line in about:config that is suspected of causing issues with preferences sync (no firefox preferences are synced).

"services.sync.engine.prefs.modified"

It is set to false by default, and when i change it to True it will change back to false after a Sync.

Also when i try to change that line a new one appears called "services.sync.engineStatusChanged.prefs.modified" and it is set to True?

I have tried changing "services.sync.engine.prefs.modified" setting to True on both of my PCs (windows 7) that are used for sync, but it always resets to false.

It looks like the firefox sync server is enforcing the "false" setting for some reason?! Is there any way to force "services.sync.engine.prefs.modified" to stay on True?

First of all, my apology for adding a question instead of replying, the "Post reply" button keeps directing me to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/#question-reply all the time.

This post refers to another question, Low framerate when watching Youtube videos on HTML5 in fullscreen, where KalKent said

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion. Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?

I got the same problem (low frame rate watching HTML5 videos, slow overall performance) and situation (had hardware acceleration disabled, Youtube videos running well at 1080 non-auto mode) as OP since Firefox 40 or 41 (I don't remember exactly which, but it was autoupdated around one month ago, early September) and today after I read that question thread, attempted to set media.webm.intel_decoder.enabled to true, I tried one thing that, to some extent and at least for me, fixed this:

  • Enabling hardware acceleration (Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available")

So I'm sharing this hoping that this help someone else with the same problem. Regards.
