Hello Unfortunately, I have to use a PC at a library sometimes, and leave my 'perfect' PC behind. At the library, we only have Firefox for viewing PDF files. Is there a way to change the background colors on the screen ? Sumatra allows me to do this, but as of yet I have not gotten Sumatra installed at the library. We also have Acrobat, but it doesn't allow color changes either.

Hello I have to use a PC at a library sometimes, and unfortunately we don't have Sumatra (yet). We do have Firefox 70.0, and it opens PDFs but I cannot see with a white background. I've been in Networking nearly 40 years and i will only use a black background. Is there any way for Firefox to use a web-based program so I can run Sumatra within Firefox, without installing Sumatra locally.

Hallo, Ich habe ein mir unbekanntes Problem. Unter Firefox, Linux Mint. 19.1, was auf 2 Speicher installiert, zur Sicherheit, ist folgendes aufgetreten: Plötzlich kann ich Datenbanken von Joomla auf der einer SSD Samsung 850 Plus nicht aufrufen, auf der anderen King SSD M.2 über PCIe - im selben Computer -ist es möglich. Der Fehler ist erst 1 Tag alt. Ich werde in meinen Arbeiten daran gehindert, nicht durchführbar!

Da ich sehr unfangreiche und wichtige Chronik verfüge, möchte ich nicht diese Löschen. Leider hat Firefox nach Jahren immer noch keine Möglichkeit diese Chronik zu speichern eingeräumt, oder es ist viel zu umständlich und daher nicht durchführbar. Firefox bekommt leider nur einen Stern von mir. Eric - 04.11.2020 -

I recently had a windows update on my desktop, since then videos on netflix and twitter (and a few other sites) will no longer play. Whenever visiting twitter I get a bar pop up at the top suggesting I install "Microsoft's Media Feature Pack" and links me through to this article - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows , I have the pack installed and it's up to date, I've tired via the Add Features system in Windows and via direct download, both to no avail.

Twitter will not load or play videos and netflix is the same. On Netflix I'm getting:

"Oops, something went wrong... Unexpected Error" and error code F7355 (see this article which indicates browser trouble https://help.netflix.com/en/node/105186).

Here are some other things I've tried, none of which have worked:

  • Checking for updates on windows
  • Checking for firefox updates
  • Checking for updates with the DRM addon Widevine
  • Ensuring Widevine is "Always Active"
  • Starting firefox in "Safe Mode"
  • Using a private browsing tab

I am running:

  • Windows 10 Pro N (as said above, I have installed the media pack in several ways)

OS Build: 18362.295.

  • Firefox Developer 70.0b3 64 bit.

I've also been seeing similar issues on my fiances machine with standard Firefox but her's says that Widevine has crashed on the top bar rather than suggesting we install Window's Media Feature Pack, although the other symptoms are the same. I don't have her machine to hand to grab versions from there but everything is up to date at time of writing and I've tried the same troubleshooting techniques on that machine as well.

Really stumped on this one and I'm very reluctant to switch back to Chrome simple to play netflix videos, but likewise it's quite important I can play videos around the web. I'll try anything else to fix it at this point, all suggestions welcome!

Firefox lags my PC for a second when entering or exiting full screen, locking my cursor in place as well. This happens when either pressing F11 to enter full screen or bringing a YouTube video into full screen. This also only seems to occur when hardware acceleration is enabled, even though my GPU drivers and Windows are up-to-date.

I've recently noticed that after updating to 70.0, if I don't simply untick Bing as a search engine option, it will keep appearing at the bottom of my URL suggestions. I've tried unticking and even removing it from my list via Options, but if I exit out of and come back to Firefox, it shows up again. Is there any way for me to permanently remove Bing from my list of one-click search engines, or should I just keep it on the list but unticked?

I always using terminal to open my firefox by.

firefox.exe -profile path\to\my\profile

but when I click any external link, firefox keep using the default profile to open the link.

I've tried 1. Google somthing about "maybe there's a command switch to force firefox keep in single instance" --- no luck. 2. Using "-no-remote" switch to open my profile

The only solution now is migrate my current profile to default profile to fix this issue, but I just don't like more stuff in %appdata% and also harder to manage the profile.

Hope someone can help me out ! Thanks !

info: Windows 10 1607 Firefox 70.0 x64
