I cannot change the playback speed on YouTube recently (about a week). Videos play without issue but using the option to change playback speed does not affect the speed.

Is it a Firefox problem or a YouTube problem? Anyone else experiencing this?

I made a quick recording showing the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZt_9jyDhos

I get the same problems in Firefox on both Debian with Cinnamon (on my desktop) and Linux Mint Debian Edition (on my laptop). As you can see in the video, I've tried clearing cache, cookies, history, and extensions, but no luck.

Other solutions I've tried since making the video:

- disabled PIA VPN - created a new Firefox profile - turned off DNS prefetch - turned off IPV6

(I reverted each of these after they didn't work.)

I think Firefox has blocked my access to my hotmail account.

When I put this into my URL: outlook.live.com

it goes to main page - OK

But when I put this into my URL: outlook.live.com/mail

I get a blank screen . . . and the security icon to the near left of the padlock on browser does not have an option to unblock my mail.

I find no help at hotmail/msn. But my daughter used her phone and got into my mail there - so I think it might be my security setting on Firefox.

Any help will be appreciated.

Colors are distorted in MP4 video as you can see in the attached screenshot. The distorted colors impact video on many sites including yourlearning.ibm.com, webex.com, twitter.com, mlb.com, etc. They do not impact youtube.com which displays video correctly. My Firefox version is 68.10.0esr (64-bit) and my OS is RHEL 7.8, kernel version 3.10.0-1127.13.1.el7.x86_64, Gnome Version 3.28.2

I have tried running in safe mode but the issue persists.

How do get Firefox to display MP4 video with correct colors?

I have observed that work offline is possible only when site has been verified which makes it nightmare. If I restart the browser w/o connection any site cannot be verified and, hence, offline does not work!

Please, tell me how to disable verification: 1) in general, and 2) while working offline.

PS: From version 57 if I remember correct, no multi rows, no extra Tool Bar, no Tab Mix Plus, no Session Manager, no automatic download start with DownThemAll!, no work offline, etc. Firefox >= 57 has destroyed the best UI experience!

Getting attached error when logging into Zendesk. I've been on with their support already.

Steps: Clearing data, private window. Safe Mode. All extensions disabled. Enhanced Privacy disabled. Check other browsers - successful with Midori and Chromium. Check other OS - I have a win10 vm with Firefox and get the same result. Check other zendesk sites - My company's domain + support.zendesk.com

I confirmed with their support that anyone can create an account at support.zendesk.com so I'm hoping someone that knows what they are doing can see what is up with this site.

Hello,

I got the following problem. When I shutdown my PC and let's say have 20+ Tabs open from a study session, after booting again all these tabs are opened when I stat firefox.

In many cases this may be the intended behavior, but I really do not like it. I would like that my Firefox behaves in the following manor:

At any given time, when I open my browser for the first time my default setting is shown. 

At any given time, when I open my browser, no older tabs from a session before should be opened

Thank for help in advance I am aware that this might be the stupidest question ever and I have to jump through hoops to make it happen.

I sometimes invoke firefox on Linux by running the command

`firefox --new-tab` (with no argument to the new tab flag, I have this hooked to a keyboard shortcut).

This has always worked fine (opens a new instance of firefox if none is running; opens a new tab in the open window if there is one). Today I upgraded to Firefox 79.0, and unfortunately it seems that now running the above command opens a new window even if I already have one open. I guess this is a regression?

I'd like to help you all at Mozilla in the evenings. I have just one issue with that. I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon and made my theme dark and downloaded the add-on "Dark Background and Light Text". It is almost 100% wonderful. Redshift is activated too, in order to avoid the blue light, so that I will keep the rhythm of my sleep. I love it.

However. Every time I start a new window in Firefox or click the "+" my whole screen turns WHITE!!! This is VERY annoying. I want it to be dark, of course. This is also an issue if I am going to help you out at Mozilla in the evenings. Dark Background and Light Text does not work in your own forum. Why not integrate this add-on into Firefox?

In my opinion this is a very high priority issue, not only for this reason, but considering that we will all would save energy, batteries and the environment when using AMOLED technology together with Firefox, especially if it is very easy for the users to discover and to activate.

I had originally upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 from 18.04. Had an issue and I had to reload 20.04. Things seem stable now. I went to restore my bookmarks. Went to Library Icon and clicked on it, but there was no IMPORT and BACKUP button. I even went to the Menu Icon and clicked on it to see if that would work. Nope.

I'm running 79.0. What did I do, but better yet, how do I fix this????

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

So the problem is that Firefox doesn't play any HTML5 content. Weirdly except for Youtube. Youtube works just fine. But every other Website shows errors. Even songsterr.com. I'm using latest Firefox 76.0.1 on a recent Ubuntu 20. 04 LTS installation. Usual troubleshooting like updates doesnt work because "sudo apt-get upgrade" doesn't find any updates. I tried the same websites in the latest version of Chromium and they work perfectly fine. I couldn't find a mistake in the firefox settings or something so I'm confused. Disabling Plugins didn't change anything and turning of tracking protection didn't either. What is the Problem here and how can I solve it?
