New comcast streaming will not work in firefox

Comcast has changed their on-line streaming service into a new format. I was able to stream no problem before, but now I cannot even seem to log in to this. I can log on to the xfinity home page and email, but not the streaming page. Other firefox users are having this problem as noted from comments in the xfinity forum. I am wondering if there is something with firefox not allowing me to log on. I have disabled my addons ABP, and Ghostery, and have added comcast to my exceptions options and besides that I do not know what else to do. Getting any answers from Comcast, as I am sure everyone else knows, is impossible. So I thought I would see from this end if anyone has any solutions. I can use streaming on IE, but not firefox which is the browser I use and do not like using IE. I am using Win7, comcast ethernet, if that adds any info.

After upgrading from Firefox x86 to 64 (and uninstalling 32-bit Firefox per the upgrade instructions) Windows lost the setting that Firefox was my default gif image viewer. Just so there's no confusion, the OS was Win7x64 before and after switching from 32-bit to 64-bit Firefox. If I try to use right click and Open with command, Firefox isn't one of the available programs. I can use the Open with ->choose default program command, browse to firefox.exe, select it and click Open but then I'm taken back to the lists of Recommended and Other Programs and Firefox isn't added to either list. Using the Start menu/Default Programs gets the same results. I can still open gif images from within Firefox using File/Open File so I know Firefox's ability to open and view gif images is still there. Thanks for any help.

When scrolling through pages the screen bugs out and flickers black. The web page functions as it should but it is extremely annoying and off putting. I've updated the drivers to the graphics card and windows to it's latest update and reset all settings within firefox and made sure no sketchy add ons were running. Ive also used about:config and followed instructions on another question in these forums.

Nothing has worked so far and I have no idea what the problem could be.

Heads up/anyone out there using Keyword Search I'm working to roll back to FF48 for now.

Why does browse by name keep breaking? FF4 was when it was no longer supported natively, why does FF49 break an addon?

The devs need to leave it alone and stop messing with it and let us enjoy a more efficient way to browse the web!

Since updating Windows 10 I have not been able to use the "Recently Bookmarked" button in the Bookmarks dropdown list. It is greyed out. I use it often because it takes a lot of time to scroll to the bottom of the bookmarks to get to the last few that I have bookmarked. Is there a fix for this problem?

I use the application for Send Out Cards and when I go to the page to personalize the card, it appears blank. I have installed the latest version of Firefox, and Adobe Flash, and I have Windows 10. I have enabled the Adobe Flash plugin, I have allowed this site to have cookies, I have tried many things. Nothing seems to help. My friend has the same set up and his works just fine. My laptop is about 6 months old. It works in Chrome no problem, I don't like using Chrome as my browser and it would be difficult to jump back and forth with it.

I am in the middle of research, and the search bar goes somewhere every time I close the browser. Going to customize every time but that doesn't work but that last only until I close the browser. I have to put it there every single time and this "feature" is driving me crazy and the waste of time to have to do this makes things work.

When I open a listbox, the font is smaller than the one specified for the listbox. When the listbox is not open, and just showing a value, the font is correct (as specified).

Also, some listboxes have per-item styles (colors, bold, etc.) which should appear when the listbox is open. These per-item styles show up correctly (as specified) in Chrome and IE. In the version of Firefox I was using before version 48, these per-item style also showed up correctly. They do not show up in Firefox version 48 or 49.

I would like to include a screenshot, but cannot figure out how to take a screenshot of an open listbox.

As above. I have not been able to attach any pictures to letters, save images to files, etc. As stated, each and every time this has occurred, when I close the error window everything I have open closes. I then reopen Mozilla, it offers to restore and all is good. Except I still can't attach, etc. I have updated Mozilla Firefox, multiple scans for viruses, went back and removed new downloads, since this has been occurring every time I attempt attaching over the past 3 - 4 days. Help! I cannot post anything and it is grossly affecting my ability to engage in commerce, thus screwing my cash flow!

Is it possible to import bookmarks into Firefox 49 on a HP laptop running windows 10 from a Mac (Yosemite) without being able to create an export file on the mac?

My MacBookPro screen died. Hooking up to an external monitor does not work. Repair quote is $2400.

I pulled the SSD and have it available and can read it on my new to me PC. I have found the bookmarks backup folder from the mac and put it on the PC.

On the mac I found these backup files and exported them to the PC:

user/library/applicationsupport/firefox/profiles/6144aksw.default/bookmarkbackups

They are .JSONLZ4 files.
