I have rather abruptly lost all audio in Firefox 77 on Windows 10. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Facebook videos - all silent.

Meanwhile, I'm getting sound as usual when viewing those things in Chrome (and I would really prefer not to have to go back to Chrome), and all sound from other sources is working correctly - games, iTunes, Spotify, etc.

Does Firefox hook into my system's audio functions in some unique way, different from everything else? I've recently started experimenting with doing my own music and video recording/editing, and I've tried out a number of different audio/video apps in an attempt to find the tools that suit me, and I'm starting to wonder if one of the apps I tried modified or overwrote whatever system hook that Firefox was using.

Strangely enough, the audio spontaneously started working again yesterday, a few hours after it stopped, and was still working today until I rebooted my machine. Then it was gone again.

When visiting the above site in the latest version of Firefox Developer the page fails to render. However, when I view the page in Firefox (regular non-developer version) there are warnings regarding the site using an unsupported version of TLS. Here is the warning:

This site uses a deprecated version of TLS that will be disabled in March 2020. Please upgrade to TLS 1.2 or 1.3.

Will Firefox in the future drop support for TLS 1.1 and lower?

(First off; I have not changed any settings related to history in firefox, nor is firefox configured to delete history, nor am I in private mode) For all purposes, all the history is set to be remembered and saved. (I am also the sole user of this computer)

Started having this problem this last weekend (Around June the 6th 2020) At first I didn't notice but after a while large portions (hours worth) of my history were missing. The problem seems may have gotten worse , more and more seems to vanish. To be specific seemingly randomized pages fail to register in the history.

I have attempted verifying the integrity of places.sqlite (is this even history?) as was mentioned on another similar support report (about history not recording everything) but as soon as I pressed verify the log showed the following -

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

Can I repair my current places.sqlite (Bookmarks / History?) ? Do I have to delete it/other places.sqlite files so firefox can regenerate?

I have a lot of bookmarks, is there such a thing as too many?

I got a new computer recently, and the audio doesn't work on Firefox. Videos play normally, there's just no sound. I initially thought it was the computer, but when I tried on another browser, the audio worked fine. After searching for answers, I downloaded Adobe Flash and made sure it was listed in my Add-ons, but still no sound.

I have a website that I log into for work that needs a username and password. I was able to get into this website just fine yesterday. Since then, Windows 10 bricked itself with the latest update so after erasing the hard drive and reinstalling, I downloaded Firefox and signed back into my Mozilla account. After everything got sync'd, that's when the problem began. When I put my credentials into the website and hit submit, the form fields just clear themselves out and no error message appears. I tried logging into this website with my phone, Chrome, and even Edge with no problems. I went into my Firefox history and clicked "forget this site" and I even got desperate and reset Firefox just a moment ago. So, it's just Firefox that's suddenly having problems as of yesterday. Any ideas?

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

I have a completely fresh install of mozilla on my laptop *HP Elitebook 8470p*, it plain refuses to load webpages, and it seems to be the only browser to have this issue.

It has the following specs: a I5 3340M 8GB DDR3 RAM at 1300MHz Integrated graphics chip

Its running windows 10

Is this a case of the specs being utterly lacking or am I missing something.
