On a number of sites (YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, etc), after pausing and resuming a video or jumping to a new timestamp, the video will play but be muted. The video player does not show it is muted, but no sound is playing. Jumping to another timestamp or using a keyboard shortcut to jump a couple of seconds will resume audio playback. This started happening within the last few days. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated

Hello,

i'm having a problem navigating inside some of the websites on Firefox for Mac. Either the page is grey, and I can't navigate the page or I can't scroll down the page. It's not doing it on evry websites but it's become really annoying.

I tried to go into Preferences and in the privacy to see if there was somthing there, but the privacy setting is set to standard and I don't see anything there that can prevent what's happening.

Thank you for your help in this matter. Kssaw

Compatibility: an increasing number of websites and features do not work in Firefox on Linux

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.

Firefox won't open links in duckduckgo

Hello everyone,

I'm an avid user of Firefox latest on Manjaro, up to date.

Since yesterday, when I updated from Firefox 87.0-1 to 87.0-2, I have a strange bug using DuckduckGo.

What happens ?

  • When on DuckduckGo result page, clicking a link won't open when using the "Open in another tab" setting
  • I will open the link if that setting is not used
  • I can open it in a new tab with the right-click menu, or by ctrl-clicking it.
  • When hovering above a link, the bottom-left tooltip does show up and the cursor does become a hand, suggesting the link should work. Alas, it doesn't.

What did I try ?

  • I did restart in "safe mode", with all addons disabled.
  • I did reset the cache.
  • I tried testing the same behavior on Google, and it did work as expected.
  • I tried DDG in another browser (Gnome Web/Epiphany), and it worked as expected.

I have yet to notice the same issue with any other website. Any Idea where I should report this minor, but annoying but ?

Thanks & Cheers, -- JAB

Hi

I can access mewe.com with the last firefox, but only while browsing using the "private mode". All other websites are ok, only this one. When I enter the url "mewe.com", it switches to https://..... and then... nothing, no relad available, just a desperately empty page. Obviously, all other browsers don't have such problems.
