Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

I use yahoo biz mail in my web browser; VERY recently whenever I try to open or save an attachment (PDF / excel / word) either during the process or immediately after the process Firefox completely shuts down and has to be re-opened for me to continue. Is anyone else having this issue and if so how do I correct it?

Thank you for your help.

I have been using Firefox for many years. Suddenly I cannot get any sound from videos in Facebook, YouTube or anywhere. The settings in Privacy --> Permissions --> Autoplay are set to "Allow Audio and Video". There is nothing wrong with the computer as I can play videos and sound files on it with no problem. Sound is no problem on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. It is just Firefox that after years of use the sound as stopped working. Can anybody help?

I have FF 104.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 7 Pro x64. Acrobat 9 Pro. When I select a pdf in a web search FF ask if I want to save or open in Acrobat. If I select open in Acrobat nothing happens. If I select download it download a 0 byte file that Acrobat says it can't open. I have FF set to "ask" for pdf files. If I set options to open in ff, it does open. Everything worked fine up until about a week ago. I have had a couple of FF updates since then. The pdf files save or open in Acrobat properly if I use Chrome. I have rebooted the pc. Wish I could rollback updates to see if that is causing the issue.

I monthly make a BACKUP COPY of the PROFILE FILE, which up to this month has been named xjdi4pqu.default. Last month YAHOO.COM started acting up, after trying multiple things, I did a FIREFOX RESET, and that fixed the YAHOO PROBLEM. This month, when I when to the FIREFOX PROFILE FILE, xjdi4pqu.default is there... BUT EMPTY. Also in the FIREFOX PROFILE FILE is adzjttxo.default... and it contains all the data files that xjdi4pqu used to have. WHAT HAS HAPPENED????? Will this interfere with any future attemps to RESTORE FIREFOX fro my USB Drive BACKUPS???? Since xjdi4pqu.default is empty?????? I'm I in trouble?????

Yesterday I updated Ubuntu to Jammy Jellyfish; this upgrade included replacing Firefox with Firefox-snap. I lost my history, passwords, bookmarks, and the links on my homepage. When I try to import history, Firefox can't find anywhere to import it from.

Does anyone know how to restore things, or failing that, how to install a version of Firefox that will allow me to access the files that may still be on my system?

Contents of my ~/.mozilla/firefox folder:

drwx------ 2 peter peter 4096 Jun 8 2020 cmdnc7p7.default drwx------ 5 peter peter 4096 Aug 25 08:07 'Crash Reports' -rw-rw-r-- 1 peter peter 62 Jun 8 2020 installs.ini drwx------ 2 peter peter 4096 Aug 1 2020 'Pending Pings' -rw-rw-r-- 1 peter peter 259 Jun 8 2020 profiles.ini drwx------ 2 peter peter 4096 Sep 2 14:25 szlx617q.default-release

I believe cmdnc7p7 to be the current version, and szxl617q to be the old one,

but am clueless beyond that.

When you start typing something to search on the internet, a search suggestions start to appear and they have this blue background color (see the screenshot). How can I change that color to something else? I don't like this blue color, it reminds me of Windows. I searched in about:config for color #0063e1 but there's nothing there, so I'm guessing this will be done by userChrome.css.

Yesterday I received a prompt to update Firefox. In the update box it said that passwords/logins would not be impacted. After the update was complete, I discovered that all of my login/password information disappeared. I spent hours yesterday on the forums trying to find a fix. I did move the files from the Old Firefox data into the current profile and yet the logins/passwords are still not there. I am not sure what to do at this point, it's very distressing.

I have a website made with Wix. I have never had problems watching the videos uploaded there until the last update of FF. I can see all the old videos completely but only partially the new ones. That is strange. I asked Wix, and they told me their app works better on Chrome and Edge, so I opened my site in Chrome and Edge and the videos played complete. This problem happens in my PC and in my Android, and only with the last videos I uploaded to my site, which are mp4 type. The site is personal, so I hesitate to give the address to any not related to me, but this time I'll trust on FF volunteers and hope they will act professionally. The address is https://rdz.rocks and the last 2 videos are on My Hobbies/My Music/Christian Music/Vida Eterna and the problem is with the last 2 ones.
