Major issues with Wordpress functionality

Hello,

Since the new update(s) I'm having major issues with the settings of my Wordpress website. It seems I'm not the only one having problems adding a user in Wordpress - which is impossible in FF, it only works in Chrome. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-set-password-for-new-users/

But now my major problem is that the changes I make (see screenshot) are not saved in FF. So when I log out of WP and FF, then start again and login to FF and WP, the changes I've made are not shown, in other words, the old situation is back.

I disabled ALL of my add-ons, that seemed to work for a short time, but as soon as I was testing the add-ons, to find out which add-on was corrupted, I now have the same problem again, and all the add-ons are OFF.

So I'm stuck here, and find the errors I see in Wordpress bizar it can be caused by FF.

I'm using the latest version of FF, which is a beta which I don't like, but as soon as I try to downgrade, I am getting page crashes all the time.

Am I the only one having this issue?

I need some help please!

Firefox Developer (aarch64) won't switch site theme

Site design switch to dark mode is broken for me in Firefox Developer Ed. 92.0b3 (aarch64 on M1 machine) at multiple places like manning.com and their Live books or at spring.io. This not so on my intel Mac where this works fine.

I switch to the site's own dark mode. Unlike in my other browsers, the site theme doesn't change. This means Firefox Developer 92.0b3 cannot render one of the designs of the site. I've also tried with all extensions off and this doesn't change anything.

I think this worked when the install was fresh, but clearly something broke. It could be an aarch64 bug, but unsure at the moment.

I'll try with another profile, but it would be nice to find the actual cause too.

Any ideas?

I have like 100 Firefox profiles that i use for different topics and would love to sync them all at once, i was looking for a file that stored the login approved for my Firefox account info to just copy paste that one file in all of my Firefox profiles, but can't really find it.

This is a problem because every single time i have to introduce my email and my password and sometimes it also asks for an email verification code :( .

HTML5, YouTube, and Netflix video playback does nothing

Playing HTML5, Youtube, or Netflix video does not work at all for me - Netflix throws an error code, while Youtube and HTML5 simply never stop loading.

I've tried

  • Starting Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode
  • Clearing the cache and cookies for the given website
  • Refreshing Firefox

On the chromium-based edge browser, video playback works normally.

DRM-controlled content playback is enabled, hardware acceleration is disabled, allowing auto-play doesn't help, and neither does disabling Tracking Protection.

Hello,

I'm using firefox-dev under linux debian buster and would like to keep it as my default browser and even more after all those recent articles in media where they say firefox is loosing its users.

I received the newletter from netflix and I tried to watch a trailer (https://www.netflix.com/watch/81387952?trkid=13710079&MSG_TITLE=81387952&lnktrk=EMP&g=79ECBFC7B02B1269F43D15B11C9BA9F56455502C&lkid=TRAILER_CTA) but even after i clicked on accept drm, the video was stuck nothing happened I just saw one single fixed picture of the movie.

Later, I was on facebook, trying to watch a video (https://www.facebook.com/demotivateur/videos/5009752875718446) and the same here without any DRM...

For both of the cases I opened chrome pasted the url and video played very well.

Is there something to tweak to make it work ? Is it because I'm under debian ?

I don't want friends to switch to chrome but I understand them sometimes.

Kr,

Eric

For the first time in over a DECADE I went to Log Onto Tracfone.com to check on the cost of buying a One Year Service Card, which is what I have done at this time of the year for OVER A DECADE!

The following Tracfone Problems are occurring on Firefox BUT Working Just Fine on EDGE (1) My attempt to Log On with what I KNOW is the Correct User ID and Password keeps reporting "Invalid User ID or Password" (2) Attempting to tell Tracfone to send a Password Reset Link FAILS. NOTHING Happened, just a short flash where it is trying to process the request. (3) Attempting to have Tracfone Verify what my Username is FAILS. Again, NOTHING Happened, just a short flash where it is trying to process the request.

As I have stated, I had NO PROBLEM Logging On using EDGE! And had No Problem on EDGE requesting Tracfone to Change my Password and it is this Password Firefox keeps screwing up on the Tracfone Logon Screen because it keeps reporting "Invalid User ID or Password")

PS-This type or problem is ONLY HAPPENING WITH THE TRACFONE WEBSITE!

After my antivirus deleted a malware I get an error message at boot " unable to access jarfile". Since then FF doesn't convert html to pdf and external programs don't start for unable to access virtual machine. The jarfile is binary.SE and the Pass is correct. I have no old java version and I reinstalled the last java version. I understand that binary.SE is no longer supported. The list of extensions also include .jar so I unfortinately don't know what els to check but I do need the FF html converter back. Thank you so much for trying to help. My OS is Windows 7 Pro FF is Developer edition with auto update. Alf

Hi! I'm going nuts. I have Firefox set to NOT remember sessions when I close and re-open. But every time I re-open the (latest) Firefox on my (up to date) Mac, 3 tabs reappear. It doesn't matter how often I delete history or cookies or empty caches. They are not even 3 tabs from the most recent session! They are from a week ago. And no, they are not pinned tabs!

And yes, I have reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what I should do?

Many thanks!

Hi, Since the last update, when I click on a link, the new tab can't be launched. It opens and closed immediatly. I have to click a second time to open it. It is the same problem when I open a new tab manually, I type web address, and when I click on "Enter", the tab closes... I have to do it again and it works. It is not the first time. Next year, after an update, I had the same problem. No change on my systems (Windows 10) and on my MacBook too... Is there anyone who have the same problem ? How to resolve it ? Thank you

Hello at all guys. In the moment I'm currently writing this post I'm using FF developer edition as my main browser. The problem is with the True Key extension: When I try to use it in private windows, it doesn't work. I can't interact with it. If I try to open the extension, just as if I'm on a different browser like Brave or Chrome, it's doesn't open up the home page of the extension. But, if I try to open it on a normal window, it works perfectly and I don't why. I also want to say you guys that in my FF settings, in "Privacy and Security" at the "History" section I've enabled Firefox Developer Edition will never remember history..

Hello,

I love the tagging bookmarks feature in Firefox. But unfortunately it does not work properly like explained in the help docs.

I search for tags by typing '[+] + [Tag]'. This works for me but I only can search for 10 entries maximum.

Why there is this limitation to bookmark entries in my search bar? And how can I see all my tagged entries even when there are more than 10?

Kind regards Benni

When some websites use DRM Software's I must Disable my extensions to play the video. How can I disable the add-ons to the specific website? And if it cannot be done how can I disable all my extensions at once. Without un-ticking one by one?

Because every time I visit the website with DRM I must Go one by one to disable my add-ons.

Firefox times out when connecting to a site with URL redirection unless HTTPS protocol is explicitly typed

I am running Firefox Developer Edition 92.0b9 on macOS Monterey 12.0 Beta 6 (21A5506j).

I noticed lately that I couldn't open some sites, either when I tried to follow a link or typed the URL in the address bar. After a few trials and errors, I think I have identified a pattern but no idea of what the root cause is:

  • the sites I am trying to access all redirect to a different URL;
  • I can open the sites just fine if I explicitly type `https://` in the address bar.

A few of the sites I am struggling with:

I noticed that I could open the above URLs just fine in a Private window, so tried the following to no avail:

  • Clear cache;
  • Restart Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode (still on as I am writing this);
  • Install Firefox Beta side-by-side;
  • Completely uninstall Firefox and remove the existing profile, before doing a fresh install.

None of the above solutions work and I am a bit stumped. Safari, Chrome and Brave all work fine.

Hello! I understand that Google just updated Gmail's chat feature, and I wanted to report that I'm having issues opening chats in Gmail's new UI. Whenever I click on a name, the chat bubble does not open in Firefox, even when chats open in other browsers.

I've been able to replicate this issue in Troubleshoot mode, so I don't believe the problem is with any of my add-ons.

Any advice/is this a known issue?

My menu items are now (9/7/2021) White and double-spaced. Why does FireFox change things that don't need changing with no path back. First, they changed menu color to default to another (I think same as Toolbar color) with no recourse. Now the menus are white and double spaced (today! out of the blue sky!!). FireFox, at LEAST make these features configurable. Why do you do this?
