Hi there

I am reporting, just in case this may be of assistance to others.

Since the last update of Firefox on 28 August 2020 I have been experiencing freezing and a blank screen as well as problems accessing the browser after the crash. I also noticed in my logs shortly after the AMD will experience a crash as well. Is it possible that this update has caused an incompatibility with the latest AMD update?

This is my report for firefox, I have blanked out my computer details in the report.

I have found Pocket a handy tool to bypass many pay walls that are on some news sites, such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. However, sometimes when I "save to pocket," it do not get the whole article, only something much less. Is there a limit to the size of an article that one can save?

In addition, there is the problem that it often does not save the article at all; rather, it is only link to the site and the article itself, where I face the paywall once again. When that happens, unless I sign in and/or want to pay, I end up ignoring the article(s).

Hello!

This is a minor issue but it's getting a bit annoying to deal with.

Every time i watch youtube videos i need to disable and re-enable the picture in picture mode to get the blue little icon to display so i can use it.

I have tried re-installing three times, troubleshoot and it's driving me crazy. I re-installed windows due to other issues i had and this problem persists.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Regards Fredrik

Recently (within the last couple/few days), Firefox stopped playing videos on facebook. The video is shown available on the facebook page and where it used to play when hitting the play icon, now it takes you to the video page. Pressing on the play icon there doesn't play the video either, the video page just reloads.

This does not happen when using Internet Explorer, in IE everything is working properly.

I've started FF in safe mode, same problem, disabled all plugins, same problem, refreshed FF, same problem, updated Flash installation and video drivers, no joy.

Is there something I'm missing? This just started out of the blue.

Windows 10 Pro, updates current, video drivers, firefox, flash plugin, all latest versions.

Since Firefox updated recently, the Firefox spell checker (right click) no longer works in Outlook 365 Web. It works in every other window (google, gmail, etc.). In other windows, I have all the correct options on the right-click menu:

Undo Cut Copy Paste Delete Select All Check Spelling Languages> Inspect Accessibility Properties Inspect Element

In Outlook, the Firefox right click menu has only the following options :

Undo Cut Copy Paste Delete Select All Inspect Accessibility Properties Inspect Element

The languages and spell check options are not there.

I am a dual language user, and have dictionaries and language packs enabled for both languages in Firefox. "Spell check when I type" is checked, and I regularly use the "Languages" option to switch between languages in all windows.

With the loss of this option in the right-click menu in Outlook, I can no longer check messages in both languages. It seems as if Outlook has disabled the Firefox spell checker. I can spell check using the Outlook spell checker (left click menu) but only in one language.

I saw one solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/987216) which suggested I click on "Inspect Element" and see if spellcheck=false. It opened a window with many options (see screenshot), and I have no idea even where to look for "spellcheck=false" to delete it.

The menu used to work properly in previous iterations of Outlook 365 and Firefox; I don't know what has changed, but I would be grateful for any help you can offer in helping me get the "languages" and "spellcheck" options back in my right click menu in Outlook 365.

Thank you!
