Hi and hello!

I am on a Macbook Pro laptop from 2015

Whenever I attempt to view something off Netflix I keep getting error code F7121-3078 :(

Similarly, when I attempt to view Amazon Prime Video it says "We're experiencing a problem playing this video."

I followed instructions, I updated my mac itself to Catalina 10.15.3 and reinstalled Firefox so it should be 100% up to date.

still didn't work.

I read somewhere in this forum from a January post if I open Firefox in 32 bit mode after selecting command + i that it should work but I didn't have that option. I opted for the low resolution setting I saw and not only do the videos still not play but now it looks like I need glasses more than I really do :p I'll be changing that back asap.

What's the vibe check on this? Is there a resolution or a possible ETA of a resolution? Anything?

Any info would be grand!

Please continue here: [/questions/1285975]
Using an Apple computer and Firefox 75.0 ... In in my toolbar (where the File, Edit, View options are), and I go to History > Recently Closed Tabs ... I see many recently opened tabs listed. How do I stop "Recently Closed Tabs" from accumulating? I want that list to always be clear.

Thank you.

Please continue here: [/questions/1292692]
I'm using Firefox with a mac with OSX El Capitan 10.11.6. I've used it for many years, with no problem accessing streaming radio and archived radio. Now, I'm beginning to not be able to have access. I'm wondering if I need to update to a newer version but am loathe to do so for fear of unintended consequences. Any ideas?

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

on your latest update 55.0 i have lost my home page icon and the size of the graphics are also oddly too large.

i hate updates! i don't want changes i can't correct or replace. i'm sure i'm not the only one to report this problem so i assume a fix will be out shortly.

updating for security is fine, but to update just for newness generally compromises my own preferences.

pls let me know when to expect a fix.

and your browse attach/file won't accept a .tiff file????

regards.

duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1177711

When Mozilla Fiefox upgraded a few days ,it stopped the "Add to Cart " Paypal buttons from working on my websites. www.rickysounds.co.uk and www.ricsrus.com. My customers have been emailing me and saying they have the same problem. trying to use the buttons generates a Paypal screen that says " THings don't appear to be working at the moment, Please try later.(tried to upload an image but it wont upload to this page.)

Google chrome and Safari work correctly so I reinstalled Mozilla Firefox 54 and this version works perfectly.

I tried to use my PC laptop and the latest FirefoxPC version has the same problems ,again IE on the laptop works perfectly.

I am losing business as a result of this problem so I would appreciate a fast resolution to the problem

This was asked in 2011, but the solutions are not compatible with the present 2017 version. I routinely Override the colors specified by the webpages going back and forth between "Only with High Contrast Themes" and "Always". I'd like to create either a custom hot-key (preferred) or a menu bar toggle button to go back and forth between these two choices. The option chosen needs to be compatible with the latest version of FireFox. Any suggestions?

The bookmarks window opens in fullscreen--FULLSCREEN--and eliminates every option to do anything other than look at bookmarks. It does not minimize, it's just in that way. The only way to get out of that nonsensical window is command+W. Why would Mozilla choose to display bookmarks in such a stupid, obnoxious way?

On OS X's Dock I can right click on Firefox's Icon and get 2 options: "new Window" and "New Private Window".

On Firefox Quantum, I get these options normally when I first open the application, but after having it open for some time, these options just disappear.

I work with multiple desktops and move the Firefox windows around if that helps.

Attaching two screenshots of before/after.

Installed the latest version on iMac v58 a day or two ago. Since then many times I open pages (especially various email accounts) and the text is no longer able to be highlighted / selected with cursor and if I click ANYWHERE on a page, it acts as a "back" button; taking me to the previous page. I restart Firefox, it happens again after a short time surfing. This does not occur in Safari. It IS a problem with latest version of Firefox v58 for mac. Links do NOT work, upon clicking them, I am sent back to the previous page loaded. This ONLY occurs with Firefox (not other browsers) and started immediately upon the auto install of latest version of Firefox.

I also need to reinstall the previous version off Firefox (that actually works AND prevent auto-install of buggy new versions like Mac 58 ... HOW?

I originally posted "web site viewable" and marked it as solved because I though it was a DNS issue.

That was wrong. The problem is with Firefox. The web site "http://www.flightofthephantom.com/what-is-an-imu" cannot be accessed when using a specific DNS FreeDNS. It however works when I use my ISP's DNS or Google or Quad9.

I know this is a problem with firefox because 1. Safari on the same workstation works for all DNS's 2. I created a new user account on the same machine and Firefox works in that new account for all DNS's

I have another Mac OS el capitain workstation which has the exact same problem. To correct the problem I completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

I still have Firefox on the original machine with this problem and I would like to know what is the corruption.

I have performed the following to correct the issue but was unsuccessful.

1. Refresh Firefox 2. Cleared Cached ,history and cookies 3. I have reinstalled firefox

What components remain after the above that would prevent operation of a specific web site (I believe there are other sites) via a specific DNS?
