For the last week or so, I've been having an issue with media not playing properly on websites. Specifically, when I read webpages which have embedded Twitter images or videos, I see the message "The Media Could Not Be Played" where a screenshot of the media used to appear. There is a blue "Reload" button, and when I click it, I can briefly see the screenshot for a split second before "The Media Could Not Be Played" re-appears.

With YouTube videos, they fail to play and I get the message "An error occurred. Please try again later". This happens with both embedded videos on webpages, and directly on the YouTube website itself.

All of this media works properly when I open the same pages in another browser like Chrome. I would prefer not to switch browsers. Is there a way to fix this error?

Recently, I have been unable to delete Recent History either from the tool bar at the top of the screen or from Preferences. This is an older iMac for which Firefox is up-to-date. What is odd is that I am able to delete History when I use Safari as the active browser. I prefer using Firefox however, so what is wrong and how can I fix it?

Firefox keeps displaying '400 Bad Request Request Header Or Cookie Too Large' when trying to read articles on www.bloomberg.com.

It only happens when using this site and only on Firefox and not on Safari or Chrome.

How to fix this and be able to use Firefox as default browser for this site?

regards, Arjen

I visit this site, www.bringatrailer.com on a daily basis and of course i use Firefox

I think, but i'm not sure, since apple moved to Big Sur, i'm running into issues when using the site.

The first issue is that when i look at a specific listing and scroll down to the comments section, i get this message:

"28 Comments

Please enable JavaScript to engage in the discussion on this site"

This happens on every listing i visit BUT it does not happen when using the BAT site when i use Chrome

The second issue is that when i go to my account/profile/notifications and go to change the toggles it bumps me back to the top of the page. This does not happen on Chrome.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Bookmark this page process has changed (Firefox v83.0 Mac). I cannot choose where to save the bookmark because no screen appears where I can navigate to or select a destination. Then when I try to edit this bookmark, the edit screen only flashes briefly and disappears, giving me no means of editing the name or destination.

This has been occurring for 2 days as of 12/03/20.

Hello - I can't log in to Weebly using my Firefox browser. I used to be able to (very recently!) and I am not aware of changing any settings. I can log in if I am on Safari. A very rude support person on Weebly said there was nothing they could do their end. I don't understand it. I'm not very techie - but I prefer using Firefox. Is it something to do with the latest version? What can I do about it? thanks for your help. Celia

I go to a website and need to upload a file. I click the upload file button on the web page and the pop up will not appear. I've done every option imaginable for Pop-ups to no avail.

What security setting am I missing?

It works in chrome which I prefer not to use but I suppose I'll make the switch if I have to.

Regards,

Websites constantly refuse to let me login using Firefox browser, but works on other browsers

I was not able to log into my bank account website tonight, because it kept giving me an error saying 'Feature temporarily unavailable' every time I tried. (attached) I contacted the bank Support, and they told me to clear the cache and try again, but that did not help either. I was able to get into my account using Chrome browser, but this is a constant thing with Firefox, that websites will not work properly for one reason or another, and I have to open a different browser to be able to complete my objectives. Firefox consistently complains about permissions to open websites that were working fine just this morning. Almost like it is random, or something. As well, trying to use online chat in Firefox, is a joke, and I almost religiously have to go to a different browser to chat with anybody online. I have noticed that, for around the last year or so, Firefox browser has become less and less useful,and more and more tedious to use, which is leading me to think about changing my default browser to one that is more reliable. I have been using Firefox, as my browser for many years now, and hope that it can be corrected somehow, because I do not want to switch to a different browser truthfully. I do have addons, mainly ad blockers, but if I remove all addons, the same problems remain. Am I going to have to switch to a different browser that is more consistent, if I want to be able to have reliable internet usage, until you guys get your collective acts together, or what??

MacBook Pro, Mojave 10.14.3; Recently updated Firefox to 83.0, and now my fonts on other sites are messed up (particularly Yahoo mail; See screen shot). I've tried re-starting with add-ons disabled and it does fix the problem, but I need my add-ons enabled. I also tried a Firefox refresh, but still does not fix the problem. I've also tried checking and unchecking the box "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above," in Firefox preferences, but that doesn't help either. Hopefully someone has figured out how to fix this?

TIA - Beth

Hi all. I have been looking for some time for an extension or method that will help me sort the extensions that end up in the Overflow Menu. It becomes impossible to find anything with them all shoved in there with no rhyme or reason, and I def do not want to have to put them in alpha order (or maintain them that way).

Hi,

I have been designing a Hikvision CCTV system and bumped into a problem. Mac users cannot use a browser to access all the various controls and settings as Hikvision rely upon ActiveX, which is old and a security risk. I am informed that this problem exists in the whole CCTV industry! I am advised that Hikvision will eventually dump ActiveX in favour of HTML5, but this seems to require a new operating system!

I think it's incredible that a whole industry should build itself upon one piece of legacy. Surely browsers would be the way to go. That way online acccess to a CCTV system would be OS independent. Does onyone have some thoughts on this?

Why not implement an HTML5 plugin?

I'm no expert, but have been around computer tech since the early 1980s.

Comments/observations much appreciated.

Regards Michael
