Videos play automatically in fb even though FF set not to? Apparently you can stop if logged into fb. I want to stop if not logged into fb. I asked this before and found disabling hardware acceleration did it but it happens again when i browse FB not logged in. I have FF set to block ALL sites from automatic playing. Why would i need to log in to fb to fix it?

Hey,

My employer recently updated its information security policy, and as a part of that disabled Firefox accounts on our work laptops. Is there a way to "manually" sync passwords, bookmarks, tabs etc. to and from a computer that is not logged in? Installing third party software is, because of the same security policy, not an option.

I've relied heavily on Firefox Sync in the past, as I often come across items of interest that I bookmark on my private laptop that I would like to access on my work computer and vice versa, passwords are updated often etc. The updated security policy has become a real nuisance, so I am looking for a workaround. ;)

(And yes, I am talking to our IT department, and they are at least semi interested in finding a solution.)

Appreciate any help!

Hello Not responding Not responding Not responding  ??? This version of Firefox ( Firefox Setup 60.0.1 ) I installed 5 minutes ago, and it is the first day I use this computer. I don't know why this problem is common with a Firefox ? Sometimes, perhaps it is due to the computer ( not good performance ) But this a very modern laptop I use now. Then suppose it is due to the computer, why then it does not occur with Google Chrome browser ? Not responding Not responding Not responding It is very annoying If this will not recover, I no longer use this browser never and ever The browser is new to go and do troubleshooting or refresh even no add-ons it has ( none I installed) Even to do a slight touch it becomes irritating. If it is due to viruses , I have one good activated program ( Eset internet security )_ Moreover, I yesterday tested my computer with the anti- malware ( new copy ) ! So, what is the reason I see or think this browser can never be protected and as I think it sends more cookies to us the users One can go to library and read books or search about not to come to internet and use any browser Tow days ago my laptop ( Not this one ) became damaged and the smart hard disk exposed to a sever hurt and I left out ( cannot be repaired ) and the reason of course using the internet It is a new method to track users sending them malicious viruses just one presses on I accept to the cookies These cookies as much as I know are spy -tracking viruses So , what to do all pages behave the same manner. I excuse for the long post, but it also my right to complain Give me a solution to ( not responding ) for Firefox only.

Hi, I experimented for maybe 30 mins trying to get rid of a white border at the top of the browser but were unsuccessful and the others mentioning border problems seems to suffer more from a white thick line surrounding all sides...

Basically, I got a new computer and with it the latest firefox update. I never noticed how prominent the top border of the browser is, especially in dark mode and I'm wondering if there's a way to get rid of it and move the minimize/close browser buttons down to the tab section of the browser instead? And if that doesn't work, is there a way to darken the top border to the same black as the rest of the browser?

Kind regards Thomas

At first I was getting the something not wrong but don't fret we'll give it another shot message so I looked online and added Twitter to a block list and cleared all my cookies. This got rid of that message and I was able to get to the login page but when I go to login it still won't let me. I know the password is right (it also doesn't say anything like incorrect username/password). Someone in another forum had mentioned going into configs and flicking something from true to false or vice versa and that also didn't work. Most places I look just say the same old thing about cookies. It works perfectly fine on the mobile app and Chrome still but I prefer Firefox. I'm out of ideas.

Hello,

I recently installed the Multi-Account Containers extension but noticed that it also added some unwanted right click context menu items to assets for websites that I have put into containers. For example google.com and youtube.com are both put inside a "google" container. Now I have used the folowing code: "menu[label="Open Link in New Google Tab"] {display:none!important;} " in the userChrome.css file to remove the context menu item: "Open Link in New Google Tab" but it's only taking effect on the google.com website and not youtube.com.

Anyone know the reason why?

Thanks in advace.

Hello,

I installed a proxy on Firefox. On the website facebook.com when I click on a button that open a new firefox window to connect my instagram account to my facebook page, it opens a white page with "about:blank" URL instead of the instagram registration page. What does it mean and what am I supposed to do to solve it?

Thank you.

Firefox and IE can access most web pages, but both go "unable to connect" on mozilla.org

Hello,

I'm trying to update Firefox on a relative's Windows 10 computer, but none of the installed browsers can reach the Mozilla main pages. We're stuck on version 72.0.2

Other webpages load fine. The only way I've gotten mozilla.org to load is by using a web proxy, but then the error appears when I try to download the latest version of firefox (it's always "download was interrupted" then). Going down the recommendations on this help page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-and-other-browsers-cant-load-websites , I verified that windows firewall allows Firefox. Then I checked the system time and the wireless connection. Flushing the DNS cache was similarly fruitless. Other computers using the same internet provider in the same house don't have this problem, so I don't think the ISP is at fault. I even went looking for the DNS number of the website and tried inputting that into my address bar. Still no luck. I made an HTTP log file of the error through about:networking, as described here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Debugging/HTTP_logging, and will attach it. I really hope you can help me troubleshoot this; it's been plaguing my relative for an excruciatingly long time.

... hm. Your attachments browser window doesn't see .moz_log files, so I've uploaded them to this ge.tt address: http://ge.tt/1ocAom83 .

Regards, Silvia

Firefox won't play any video, on any website at all. I get different error messages on different sites, such as: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support OR Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. I've tried following some of the advice in the forums here, so I cleared the cache and the cookies, I ensured DRM content is enabled, and I unchecked the 'Use hardware acceleration when possible' option under preferences. None of this has made any difference. I also restarted firefox and installed an adobe flash player add on. Still no success. Any advice?
