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.

When watching a video baught from Amazon in most cases audio and picture are not synchronous. Discrepanca seems to increase with watching time. The problem does not occur with Opera, Internet Explorer or Edge. Deleting browser cache and cookies does not help. Reducing the quality or rewind does not help. Internet quality/speed seems to be OK because it wors fine with other browsers. How can I fix this problem. I do not want to go to another browser because I am very happy with firefox.

Best regards Martin

Running Firefox 83 (claims it's up to date) on Windows 10 Pro N.

Recently Firefox has decided to play the audio from the likes of Facebook videos and YouTube through the speakers, despite:

  1. the headphones being the default device
  2. restarting the computer
  3. Chrome and VLC media player both sending audio to the USB headphones.

I disabled the speakers, which did result in FF sending the audio through the USB headphones. But . . . when I re-enabled the speakers Firefox reverted to them. Mid-play of a video! This even though the default audio device was still the USB headphones.

I searched for guidance, but the mentions I have found related to posts going back several years (FF 36 anyone).

That other applications correctly recognise the appropriate audio device suggests strongly that it's a Firefox issue, rather than an OS issue.

I really would prefer to not have to manually disable the speakers. Previously everything would simply switch from headphones to speakers when I unplugged the headphones, and back again when I plugged the headphones back in. This is how it should be.

Hi,

I'm a paranoid guy so i tend to investigate anything and everything weird that happens to me.

Yesterday, i was browsing a movie directory looking for a movie to watch outside of major platforms (Netflix). The site was full of ads and other crap, my AV was ringing the bells, blocking lots of potentially malicious links.

Suddenly, i got prompted by Windows Defender to allow firefox.exe to communicate on public networks too. Private networks were allowed already, but somehow it wanted access over public networks too.

It looked exactly like this : https://content.invisioncic.com/Mmalware/monthly_2018_03/image.png.2897f90ed89aa34691c24143e249ab12.png

I am wondering if i could've been exploited by some sort of 0-day, as FireFox security is weaker now, we might see more broad attacks on people.

How could this happen and why would FireFox suddenly want to add new incoming rule?

I have the latest version of FireFox for many days, haven't installed anything new or updated anything. It happened just like that. Also, i was calling with a friend via Messenger which uses WebRTC, but we've been calling like that for past week or so, so don't have a clue why did it happen now...

Should i be concerned?

Let me know, please.

I often need to print or download pdf presentation files from online sources which I used to do on Safari (I use imac) On Safari, the pdf presentation automatically rotates on the print page, so then I can use "save as PDF" on portrait and everything looks good. (then I just rotate the file to landscape on Preview or PDFexpert to read the presentation).

When I try to do the same on Firefox, on the print page, the presentation does not rotate and remain landscape. The problem is, when I choose landscape to print, then the presentation is not centered on the page and skewed to one side so I get much wider margin on one side.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I appreciate any advice or input!

Recently, when I start my Windows 10Pro desktop and I bring up Firefox or click on a URL in an Outlook mail (which starts Firefox), I notice I am logged out of Firefox and have to re-login into my account. I am currently using Firefox version 83.0. This behavior may have started a month or so ago(it is now Nov,29, 2020) before I really started to pay attention to this issue.

Of course during the last several months there have been Windows updates and Firefox updates, so it is difficult to pin this down to a specific set of circumstances.

Once I login into my account, I can close Firefox and re-open or re-start Firefox and I am logged in automatically, as I have always been before. Now when I power off the desktop and re-start the next day I am logged out of my Firefox account.

The only add-ons I have are Ghostery and Google translate.

Any idea what is going on here or what to check for? Thanks.

Hi all,

After month of using, the screenshot function of Firefox seems to have disappeared. Right click contextual menu does now show the option to take a screenshot and the [three dots] -> Take Screenshot menu action does nothing. Moreover, the icon of the function seems to be missing (see attached images). I run latest (83 64-bit) version on a new MacBook pro.

Thanks in advance, Alex

Hi- i'm a little confused about the "collections" feature on my pixel. is it supposed to carry over onto my computer? I'd love to access my collections on my desktop. I also recently upgraded my phone- my collections haven't transferred over to my new phone and that's also frustrating. I might just be an idiot but i can't seem to find any documentation on whether collections syncs between desktop and mobile; an indication that this is generally thought to be so obvious it needs no documentation.

Hi,

About 2 weeks ago or so, I started having issues with Youtube on Firefox. It's difficult to explain, but basically, I'll sign on to Youtube. Youtube will show my profile with all my video recommendations and subscriptions. But, if I click the red Youtube home button on the top left of the page to refresh the site or click a different video, Youtube signs me out and shows me the homepage as if I was signed out or did not have an account. When I do sign back in again, my video recommendations are all messed up (they are mostly the general video recommendations from the unsigned in home page and nothing related to the channels or videos that I watch). When I go to my subscriptions, I have to sign in again. It's becoming really frustrating. I did a full uninstall of Firefox, and it briefly worked, but then Youtube went back to the way it's been behaving. I've cleared my history and cache. I've disabled all extensions. I've logged in and out. Nothing seems to work. Youtube does seem to work normally on Chrome and Edge, and I have not had any issues with any other websites on Firefox. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or have any advice?

I really enjoy using Firefox, and since everything else seems to work, I'd prefer to keep using it. I really don't want to have to resort to using Chrome or Edge to watch Youtube videos.

I'm running Firefox version 83.0 (64bit) on Windows 10

I use meet.google.com for school online classes and this past week there are issues with screen / camera sharing. in the first place everything is fine but after a few seconds the image, whether the camera is sharing the screen, the image in question is displayed on the screen zoomed in to the top left. To understand, we see from this: https://ibb.co/xfrDzGK to this: https://ibb.co/y0jtpDL I think it is a Firefox problem because I tried to use other browsers and it works perfectly.
