Since update to version 81. a few days ago, my flash player ( adobe ) is not working properly on Facebook Farmville game. Page loads and prompts me for flash - but when page loads up it is way way oversized and unable to get it to normal size. Unable to play the game at all on Firefox browser.

I have spent a few days trying everything I could think of ( including re-installing adobe flash player). I have found no fix.  I now have to use my google chrome browser to play my daily game, of which I am not happy..  don't personally like google. 
Do you have any suggestions ..  or can I go back to the previous version of firefox, where I had no problem with flash player?

Today i opened mozilla, a troubleshooting message in english (my browser is set in italian) popped up, and then it asked me to Refresh Firefox (I had no idea it meant "back to factory settings")

Nothing difficult, i've re-installed mozilla last week after formatting HDD without a problem.

Now, instead, there's nothing.

Logged in, synced, nothing. Mozilla is brand new.

Tried to copy datas and paste them in the profile folder: nothing. Tried to copy the folder (the one inside the Old Firefox Data folder) into the profile folder: nothing.

Wouldn't be a huge mess, wasn't for the hundreds of password i've saved.

Thanks for the help! =)

I'm streaming video a lot in the PiP breakout window while reading other web pages. I think it's a great feature and I've seen some improvements in the UI over time. I was hoping this problem would have been fixed in the latest update or noticed by someone either in development or another user at some time, but I could find no reference to it when searching the help pages.

When the video is playing in the window, everything works fine. Except when I'm watching something like a live broadcast that has breaks in it for commercials. My practice is to keep an eye on the video playing when I've muted the tab, while I continue my reading in other tabs. When the program comes back on in the PiP, I unmute (demute??) the tab and usually return the picture to the host tab, then go full screen.

At least half the time I do that, the navigation bar - where you can stop/start the play, go forward/back 10 seconds, and where you see the red "LIVE" notification or how many minutes/seconds you are behind the LIVE stream - shows that my program is now minutes behind the LIVE point. The funny thing is, it doesn't do it consistently and I have tried several things to figure out if it's something I'm doing. But there is no rhyme or reason why it's happening. It did this when I had Windows 8, and continued after I installed Windows 10.

For a three or four minute break, I will lose perhaps two or three minutes. I suppose that if I left it in the PiP configuration and just let the program play for the two or three hours it would take for the duration, the time would slip maybe as much as forty five minutes to an hour. Typing this statement now is going to push me to try it next time for an observable result. Again, though, it doesn't happen every time.

My guess is that, for some reason, video frames are being dropped when it's in PiP mode and instead of 30 fps it's only delivering 15 fps. (If 30 fps is what's normal.) I do not have this slippage when I maintain the picture in the standard size video box or when it's full screen. So yeah, as I'm thinking more about it, a distinct possibility is that the frames per second is reduced for the PiP, because it is not able to keep up with the higher frame rate. But then the question is why doesn't it do it 100% of the time.

So thank you all for thinking about it, and multiple thanks to the ones who can help this one be marked "solved". Later -

I recently bought a new computer, a custom build, and on firefox the above mentioned options are greyed out. I found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1215650

In my Profile Folder, I do not have sessionstore [v56] sessionstore.jsonlz4 file(s), though I do have the sessionstore-backups folder and it contains recovery.baklz4 and recoveryjsonlz4.

Can I just move or delete the sessionstore-backups folder?

Once every week it seems Firefox forgets im logged in and kicks me out from every site.

I can close Firefox and turn off computer and im still logged in on Youtube on startup, but some time during week it seems to drop the logged in state and i have to redo it on multiple sites.

Im starting to wonder if it has something to do with my Phone visiting Youtube on same account that screws it up. It seems to happen when i disappear from PC for some hours and comes back. In that time ive usually streamed Youtube content on Chromecast.

Ive had this happen meanwhile i was logged in on Youtube with the tab open. Once i refreshed i was logged out. Ive cleared cookies/cache to test if that was the issue but that didnt fix it. Other than that clearing cookies is disabled and has been so at all times.

This problem has been going on for a few months.

Is this an issue with Firefox? Is there a way for me to maintain the scroll position?

Bonjour, Je ne parle pas anglais, donc cette question sera posée en français. On m'a envoyé un lien facebook par messagerie et je précise que je n'ai pas de compte Facebook. Lorsque je clique sur le lien, Firefox s'ouvre sur la page qui contient la vidéo et qui est un compte public, et quand je clique pour lire la vidéo, c'est un nouvel onglet qui s'ouvre où l'on me demande de me connecter pour voir la vidéo et je précise que c'est un compte public. Lorsque je colle le lien Facebook dans le navigateur Microsoft Edge, j'arrive sur la page qui contient la vidéo et lorsque je clique sur celle-ci, la vidéo démarre sans aucun problème. Pourquoi est-ce que cela ne fonctionne pas avec Firefox ? Ma version de Firefox est la 81.0 (64bits). Merci pour votre aide.
