Ad Blocker Nightmare

I am trying to stream from a French website (M6) for which I have an account. Specifically https://www.6play.fr/kaamelott-p_888/la-vie-est-belle-c_11364952 I get as far as locating the programme (see link above) I want to see but then I receive "An AdBlocker is preventing access - please close it etc...." I tried creating a new profile in Firefox with the same result. I do not have this problem with other sites and am not aware of having set up a Blocker anyway. (That isn't say I haven't by accident). Where do I look please? I am using 83.0 (64-bit). On my machine I also have Edge and Chrome because some sites seem to prefer these. In fact Edge is the default browser because (guess what) some Win10 functions work better with it. The same message comes up using these browsers so I am thinking it might be a Win10 setting but I cannot spot any setting that is relevant. Any guidance you can give greatly appreciated.

I am running an old computer using XP. All I want to do on this computer is view Virtual Railfan live streaming videos. When I try to view a video, it says that my browser doesn't recognize any of the video formats available. Then it points me to a html5 faq. When I click on that I go to Firefox home page and it wants me to download Firefox. I already have downloaded the latest Firefox. Is there a workaround for this?

Hi, I'm searching an answer to my problem but, please sorry, I don't find it.

On some webpages, there is an 'internal' viewer for the images (or thumbnails).

With a pre-version of Firefox Quantum, on this webpage, for example, if you click on the images at the bottom of the page, the old FF showed the image with a internal viewer like in the attached image.

On the current Firefox, it asks me to view the image with the standard Windows imageviewer (or save it). Where is the option to open such images in the webpage iteself? TIA.

Trying to log in to spectrum > e-mail. Log-in to spectrum is fine. Link on that page loads the basic frame and links for the webmail page but the e-mail content does not load, where it should be is just white space, and the links in the frame do not work. This happens with chrome as well, on my desktop (win10) and on my laptop (Win7). I don't use the webmail often and so do not know when this might have started to be a problem - but it has not always been a problem.

The webmail page loads well with Edge.

Firefox is my main browser, don't use Chrome much. FF is up to date. Popup blocker for those pages is disabled.

What's going on?

how can I force my browser to redirect links that point to www.amazon.com to actually go to smile.amazon.com? I'm not wanting to BLOCK amazon, just enter through the proper access. most links are put into emails/documents as www.amazon.com and I want my browser to default/redirect to smile.amazon.com. if I can figure this out, I can also use this for other sites which support non-profits for traffic/transactions.

firefox won't load any pages of etsy.com for approximately the last two days.

although the site's logo appears on the browser tab, the browser window itself is a blank white page, no error message, no spinning wheel, and the full webpage address showing in the address bar.

help.etsy.com loads fine, although in reality, that directs to a zendesk domain.

etsy.com loads fine on other browsers and isn't showing outages on down detector, etc.

i have cleared the cache, cookies, etc., closed and reopened the browser, made sure i'm using the latest version, ran a malware scan, made sure there are no permissions, rules, add ons, apps, or other things that are interfering with the site loading.

i have not changed any of my firefox settings in the last year, besides automatic updates. antivirus also up to date and i don't appear to have any malware.

any ideas?

(also providing this info to etsy.com, in case the issue is 100% on their end.)

thanks in advance for any insights.

Does Firefox support .mp4 video?

On page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/html5-audio-and-video-firefox?redirectslug=viewing-html5-audio-and-video&redirectlocale=en-US

I find "AAC and H.264/MPEG-4 AVC are patented audio/video compression formats. They can be viewed in Firefox using built-in OS libraries (so neither Mozilla nor you need to pay a fee) if embedded in the MP4 container format (.mp4, .m4a, .m4p, .m4b, .m4r, .m4v file types)."

But when I create an HTML page with the following HTML5 code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
</body>
This is a test of video.
<video src="C:/MyVideoFile.mp4" controls>
</video>
</html>

I get the error "No video with supported format and MIME type found". Does Firefox in fact support .mp4 video? If so, what changes do I need to make in the HTML?

I have used Chrome as my default browser until a Microsoft up date which would not connect Chrome from the desktop. At that time I made Firefox my default browser. FF will not accept my Amazon password. The option it gives me is to change the password. I do not want to change the password as it works fine on Chrome and also Edge. What can I do so that FF will accept my password?

Looks like Firefox uses Google to decide which sites to block when using FF. I know how to turn it off and get around the block, but FF seems to be following the thinking of now allowing conservative Christian views on their browser by using Google. This may backfire and is not an open use of the internet as FF claims. The site being blocked is https://www.toddstarnes.com/.

You may not agree with him, but that doesn't mean blocking the site.

No onw seems to be able to help me.
