Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

I have no idea what state is on file as being my state of residence (I move a lot for a civilian), but I've lived at this address for the last three or four years and never had any issue with logging in to my firefox account before. I have plenty of trouble with my location WITHIN the state (Oklahoma), because apparently the only cities that exist in the state are OKC and Tulsa /eyeroll, but I've never had an issue with the state itself being misidentified. I could understand if a VPN was causing the issue, but I'm not using a VPN (I know, I probably should, but imagine the login issue THEN! lol). Thanks in advance for any help.

By using the last version of Firefox (74.0) when visiting a website with security connection I got the following error : "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to .............. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." With the previous versions of Firefox there was no such problem and I could visit the above website. So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

More and more sites are starting to "hide" behind cloudfare and such like which means it wants to re-load the web page automatically. Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

Why would i need to log in to fb to fix it?

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

With recent updates shave had 3 problems on my desktop (Windows 7). All settings are default .... everything was fine until the last 2 or 3 updates.... have changed 0 settings over this time. AV is Kaspersky but I have it turned off. FF 78.0.1

1. Every Video I try and watch now has sound off by default ... PITA unmuting all the time. That's what Id like if it is a pop-up I have no interest in but if I PLAY the video, I want to hear it. This has been going on since maybe 4 updates back.

2. It has become a thing of late for authors not to bother writing, but to just include a bunch of twitter posts. I'm not so perturbed about not being able to see them (tho would like to know whats blocking them) ... just a gray box that jumps around, but after scrolling past them the page / text is jumping around. This started 2 updates back

3. With the last update, a new one .... for a game I play with my kids on line, we use a map

https://ballisticmystix.net/?p=map

The page pulls in a grid map which I can no longer see, map area is all black. I just see the names and a grid pattern. Weird thing is It works fine on my laptop. This started on desktop just a few days ago

4. For whatever reason, my laptop "lost" most of its bookmarks


Note: I am typing from my laptop ... all but item 4 are issues on the desktop

I use a Bing Searchbox in Firefox Browser. When I do a search, I get a popup at the bottom of my screen asking me if I want to download Microsoft Edge. It gives me two options: Download now, or later. I have to hit "later" to get rid of it.

Is there a way for me to delete this popup in Firefox. I don't want Edge. I want Firefox. Please let me know if there is a solution to this. Thank you!

Pop up blocker doesn't work, nor does anything appear in the toolbar for any sites when they do pop up, which I thought was supposed to happen. Can someone please help me? This is so incredibly annoying and I don't know why, when it is set properly in 'preferences', it doesn't work.

I appreciate any help. Thanks so much.
