I have the problem to see videos from my video surveillance system Bosch DIVAR AN 3000 with the bowser Firefox 75.0.

With the browser Internet Explorer (Version 11.719.18362.0) it works perfectly. I enter the URL http://192.168.178.32/ and WEB SERVICE appears. I enter my user name and my password and after that I can show live views, recordings or change settings of my video recorder.

With the browser Mozilla Firefox (Version 75.0), Microsoft Edge (Version Windows 10 Build 18363) or Google Chrome (Version 81.0.4044.113) nothing works. After entering the URL http://192.168.178.32/ and entering of my user name and my password the message of WEB SERVICE appears that I firstly have to install a plugin (see attachements). But the installation doesn't work. It seems that I am hanging within a loop. The name of the plugin is: webplugin.exe.

Who can help me?

Thank you very much!

How do I prevent Firefox from automatically making the root path of a website the first suggestion in the address bar?

Whenever I visit a website, even if I manually type in a full URL, Firefox will automatically add the root path of that website to the list of completions in the address bar, and make it the first entry. I find this behavior very disruptive, since there are several sites that I don't care about visiting the root of, and I'd like Firefox to autocomplete the one path that I intentionally visited.

For example, I manually typed in the URL "escapistmagazine.com/v2/category/zero-punctuation/". The next time I tried to visit this page, I typed "esc" into the address bar, and the first autocomplete result was "https://www.escapistmagazine.com", which I had never visited.

It is impossible to remove this automatic suggestion from the list. Using Shift+Del will appear to remove the suggestion, but if I simply close that tab and open another one, it will reappear (without me even needing to visit the site again).

How can I prevent Firefox from automatically inserting this autocomplete result, or at least prevent it from always being the first suggestion?

Since the latest Firefox software update (75.0) in April 2020 on my Windows 10 (64 bit) computer, I am not able to add new Tabs in private browsing mode. Each time I open a new Tab, it appears in 'non-private browsing mode'. In options, I have even selected 'always open new tabs in private browsing mode' but it is not helping. As I am not able to add new Tabs in private browsing mode, each time I have to open new Windows in private browsing mode, but it is very inconvenient to have several windows (instead of several tabs).

I have tried previously listed fixes, like changing browser.search.openintab, browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true, and of course the checkbox is selected in my preference to open links in a new tab but none of those have worked. I already know about Cmd/ctrl+click but the point is I shouldn't have to do that when I've already stated the preference and it is a pain when you are sifting through long pages of search results. I am using Google search and there is no option in Google preferences to open in new tab, so I'm assuming this is on FF's end.

I have recently started getting the error message when trying to login to Facebook - "You entered an old password". It then gives me the opportunity to change the password, or "if you didn't make this change, click here"/ When I click, it says I will receive a text or e-mail message --- which I **'NEVER** receive. Also, I can login JUST FINE using Edge, or any other browser. I've been trying to research this now for months, to no avail. How do I resolve this???

The display currently has a side panel with wev site names/urls, but it only shows one site's login and password info. Previous versions of Firefox has a list of the web sites with each site's data: last login, create date, login name and optional display of the password (if I recall correctly). This display made it very easy to sort through all the data and edit it. The new display makes doing this kind of thing impossible. Is there (or will there be) an option to display as list

My question says it all, but once again: I am browsing videos in youtube, cooking videos. I right click on a sidebar video to open in a new tab, and it does; the unfortunate thing is - the link opens in the tab I am browsing from as well!!

Also (not as important as above) - why do videos need to be opened twice in youtube?

Thanks! Rocket57

Amazon does it. Google does it. Yahoo does it. Virtually every newspaper in the Western World does it. Why does Mozilla fail to do it? I'm referring to your help page navigation system. At the bottom of just about every help page, Mozilla has a little menu to aid in our browsing through their help system page by page (e.g., < 1 2 3 4 ... >). And of course, once a number or arrow is clicked we're more or less quickly navigated to our selected page. BUT THEN WE'RE ABANDONED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TARGET PAGE! Literally DUMPED! Common sense alone, as well as reading newspapers for your entire lives, studying Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese pictographs (yes, this principle has been around that long!), and many more examples, would/should tell the programers that the smart thing, if not the considerate thing, to do would be to automagically position us at the top of the new page. Can you please fix this "little oversight" ASAP? Please?

I added the Google UK search plugin from Mycroft but it doesn't work properly anymore because Google overrides the domain name used for searching with search preferences. It's really slow for me to change my search prefernces to the country I want to search in everytime so I used to have each of theose country domains add an individual seach engines.

I recently found out that just adding gl=GB to my search query will allow me to choose the correct country.

In some previous version of Firefox I could find the search URL somewhere in the profile folder but it doesn't seem to be there now. Is there also a reason why I can't just enter my own search URL and name it in settings?

Every time Firefox updates the user interface gets corrupted and I get half of it in English and the other half in Italian. See the attached image for an example of the problem.

This problems seems to be similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274346 except that when I try to update the add-ons I always get the message that they're already up to date.

Due to the frequency Firefox gets updated resetting it every time this happens as suggested in the previous answer is not an acceptable solution.
