Hi,

It seems that somehow DRM has stopped working in Firefox: as of this morning, I get the message to enable DRM on spotify, netflix and other sites - enabling DRM only yields the message "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio on this site...".

Using Firefox v93 on Manjaro 21.1.6, all up to date

I've tried (in order):

  • made sure "play DRM controlled content" is enabled
  • restarted browser in safe mode
  • refreshed my profile
  • uninstalled Firefox, removed profile folder, reinstalled Firefox
  • tested on a Windows VM with the newest version of Firefox -> works
  • installed the Spotify player as app (snap package) -> works
  • installed Vivaldi browser and DRM content works there too

I don't understand what could have changed - have had no issues when I updated firefox to the latest version a few days ago and changed nothing last night. Simply logged back in today and started seeing this problem.

Any ideas?

Font looks really ugly in this site: : https://yle.fi/uutiset/tuoreimmat In Opera instead font in the same site looks smooth and normal. I use ClearType and never before had such problem. Just shifted back to Firefox from Opera, because updated Opera has Privacy error notifications on too many sites and can't even get to some sites. Now Firefox looks so ugly. I suppose I'll go back to old Opera and never update anymore. Even old Firefox worked fine.

There are several things we can sync on Firefox account. I tried to search the limits on storage and TTL for the stored data, but found very few information and threads. I didn't found any official documentation stating related info. These limits are not stated fully and clearly anywhere. So, I asked here again.

What are the storage limits & TTLs for these syncable items :

  • Bookmarks
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Settings
  • Open Tabs
  • Login Credentials
  • Credit Card info

Also, I found on some thread stating that Firefox sync stores data for 60 days, and Firefox can receive it. But, Firefox cannot send data older than 30 days. Please clarify this behaviour as well.

Thanks in advanced..!

Hey all,

everytime I start Firefox, it automatically displays Nord theme that I was using some time ago.

I want to change that theme to something else, so I switched to the default dark theme. Upon restarting the firefox, the theme gets reset back to Nord. In theme selection settings I can see that the dark theme is enabled, but firefox actually still displays the Nord theme. I'm assuming it's because I have Nord theme synced from my account from my previous pc installs.

To remove the Nord theme I tried to:

  • Switch to a different theme
  • Remove the Nord theme from my themes list, leaving only the default Light, Dark, System and Alpenglow themes.
  • in about:config I have set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false
  • In firefox settings, under sync, I have unchecked syncing of add-ons.

But firefox still uses the Nord theme upon every start up, regardless of what other theme I chose.

How do I get rid of the Nord theme?

When I click in the URL search bar, a list of the most common sites appears, with one glaring omission, eBay!

All my other frequent website appear, like bbc.co.uk and youtube.com and scan.co.uk etc etc, but ebay.co.uk is always missing despite my visiting the site at least 3 times a day.

Any ideas as to why please?

I would like to create a FireFox shortcut in the Windows 10 Startup folder so FireFox loads automatically at boot time, in a minimized Window (or better yet, the system tray). There does not appear to be any way to make this happen. I have searched pretty extensively. If there is a way, I'd like to hear about it. If there isn't, I would like to suggest it as a feature for future development.

Hello, A folder titled 'Old Firefox Data' keeps appearing on my desktop. I googled when it orginally happened and after reading the help articles decided deleting it was alright. I had refreshed Firefox and wasn't concerned about deleting anything important. Now everytime I restart my computer a new folder with the same name appears. This wasn't happening before and doesn't seem normal. Thanks!

I am constantly unable to access websites. My data seems to clog up. I'm in my 70's and have no patience or training for sifting though numerous fixes and possible solutions. I've done my best with no improvement. My husband is having the same issues on his computer. All my previous efforts erase my sign ins and require me to constantly enter new sign in information for my common websites. I can use Safari and Chrome without these issues so unless I get some form of personalized help that doesn't require a great deal of technological skill, I'm leaving this browser greatly disappointed in the lack of support.

As above. I don't really keep track of versions but it's at v93 right now and only this week started to perform extremely slowly with regards to the initial loading of ~90% of the pages I visit, even cached and frequented sites. Once past that it performs as normal. Speedtesting is fine but Browserbench results are horrendous. (This is my first time running this test so I don't have a previous FF result to compare with.)

Already tried: clearing site data and cache, incognito, safe mode, and of course cutting addons to a minimum.

Can someone advise what else can be done or what is going on please? I've been faithful to FF for over a decade and have all my bookmarks, history and credentials saved to this account. However if this is going to be the user experience moving forward - then all I can say is I will not be joining the declining Firefox user base. W10, i5-9400f, 32GB ram, wired CAT6 + 1Gbit Fibre.

I'm currently trying to sync my firefox setup onto a laptop i will be using. So I made a firefox account and synced my data on it, but when I sign into the account on my laptop only my bookmarks gets synced while everything else doesn't get synced (password, add on, settings, etc.)

Both firefox browser are running on the same version and up to date, I have no master password set and have made sure that all the content I want synced are ticked in the settings.
