Since a few weeks only whenever you start browsing on any browser, a window opens asking you to agree or refuse the settings for tracking by cookies etc. Does this procedure annulate myown prefenrences settings?

Most of the people don't care about that and tired of being harrassed just agree to all trackings and cookies. But I don't want to be tracked and my preferences settings are all personnalised and quite strict on what I agree and what I don't agree.

So if firefox asks me to agree before I'm allowed to browse, and I agree to all of the tracking, does this annulate my privacy settings in the parametres?

Please give me an answer to [email]@gmail.com or call me +[phone number]

Or on this forum?

Hello Everyone

I'm having troubles with playing some Youtube-Videos and Twitter Videos. I had to re-install my Windows 10 (64 Bit) due to some hardware-issues which are not related, and I'm having this issue since then. Here are the steps that I already did:

-Removing all Add-Ons -Starting in Safe mode - Deinstalling and reinstalling Firefox, then starting in safe Mode -Deinstalling Firefox with a tool that also deletes all Firefox-Related Registry Keys and App-Data Files and reinstalling it to a different path (other HD) -Disabling add-ons - Disabling Open264 Videocodec and widevine content decryption module (more just because of frustration^^, but I was then able to play some Youtube videos after this one) - mediasource.enabled is active (and all the other ones as well) -Installed addons (even though it didn't work with them disabled as well): NOscript( youtube videos are allowed, some of the are working), Ublock Origin, Video Download Helper, HTTPS Everyhwere, Tree Style Tab, Limit distracting sites - Updating to the newest Firefox-Version (which came out today)

Btw: on https://www.youtube.com/html5/ it tells me that everything works fine and I have of course the newest Firefox-Version installed.

Do you guys may have any other ideas?

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards,


Gabe

table end

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.

Hello,

I have my most important bookmarks and folders in my Bookmark Toolbar. Today when I turn on the computer a bookmark folder that I don't want on the toolbar is now showing up and it's not letting me delete it. Weirdly, when I go into manage my bookmarks and look at the Bookmark Toolbar folder this folder doesn't show as being part of the toolbar. When I go to the folder in the bookmark manager screen it won't let me delete it. If I try to move it into another folder it just creates a copy of the folder and does nothing for the copy of the folder in the toolbar that I'm trying to remove. How do I get rid of this folder in my toolbar?

Several days ago I've noticed that YouTube navigation menu on the left started to disappear. See pic-1. It may apper after several tries to open it in other tabs, but all in all mostly not visible. The second and the biggest problem - I can't log out from YouTube. See Pic-2.

I fully deleted Firefox, created new clean profile without any add-on etc, and tried to log in to YouTube - it didn't help. So I think it's not needed to mention all other basic things like cookie deleting etc were done. Problem is always here.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-adobe-flash says Firefox 84 still supports Flash. Yet on some learning websites that use Flash still, like alison.com but it doesn't really matter where right, it shows this where the flash app should be and all blank white around it: (see "capture" screenshot below)

And I can't click on it nor is there a pop-up bar nor a little plugin icon at the beginning of the URL / address box to click on.

How do i enable it?

I found this: (see "extensions,plugins,shockwave_flash" screenshot) Am I close? :)
