I have my favorite applications set as defaults in the autoplay extensions options. I have "do this every time" checked in the dialog box that pops up every time I try to open a file. It doesn't matter what the file extension is. PDF, MP4, and JPG files don't automatically open.

I posted a similar question before when I thought this only applied to MP4 files. Since then, I've noticed it applies to all files.

I would really appreciate some help getting this to work again. Jim Birke

Firefox version 84.0.2 Windows 10 64 bit. Cannot connect to Centurylink webmail (centurylink.net). Can connect to Centurylink home page (centurylink.net) . Upon entering password to access Centurylink webmail from the home page, I get redirected to a new URL which is nothing more than a blank page trying to load. Firefox used to work with Centurylink - no problem - all the time. I can access using Chrome or Edge.

Tried refreshing Firefox - no good. Disabled add ons - no good flushed cash, history etc - no good Tried adjusting cookie settings - no good Tried running in safe mode - no good Help?

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Windows Home 10 20H2

I have about 700+ bookmarks, which I like to access from the Bookmarks sidebar. There are of course even more items in my browsing history. My issue is, that Firefox reacts rather "extremely" to scrolling on the touchpad. Even when I two-finger-drag "very very slowly", multiple items just "fly by" at bewildering speed. It's impossible for me to perform a precise scroll action.

It not only affects the sidebars that but also the "Library" window (both left and right lists). Strangely, the actual webpages scroll normally. Text area fields on web forms with many lines of text also scroll precisely.

In about:config, all scroll- and mouse-wheel-related settings are set to default values. I also tried with a completely new profile (after importing the bookmarks). That also didn't help.

Servus mitanand, am Freitag hat die IT-Abteilung in unserem Unternehmen das letzte Update von Windoof ausgeroll, seither erhalte ich weder einen Ton, wenn ich in FF UTube-Inhalte abspiele, noch spielt FF Dateien ab, die auf einer Webseite in einem Player eingebettet sind (Fehelermeldung, dass der Inhalt nicht abgespielt werden kann). Ich würde diesen Affen von MaxiSchrott gern endlich einmal mit dem Rohrstock eins auf die Finger geben, denn bei jedem Update darf ich meine wertvolle Lebenszeit auf irgendeinen Bugfix verschwenden, der mich nicht die Bohne interessiert. Ich komme aus einer Zeit, da galt der Spruch "Never change a runnig system" und so halte ich das auch heute noch, es sei denn, ich werde von höheren Instanzen dazu gezwungen. Ich will, dass diese Scheißkisten laufen, ohne dass ich ständig was dran schrauben muss. Da waren die Autos mit den alten Vergasern noch weniger anfällig. Hat jemand eine Idee, wie ich dieses Problem (kein Ton, kein Abspielen von Player-Inhalten) beheben kann? Neuester FF ist schon installiert, Rechner auch schon xmal neu gestartet, alle möglichen Audio-Einstellungen schon übverprüft - daran liegt es also nicht. Das ist der Grund, weshalb ich mich dagegen wehre, immer mehr meiner Intelligent und Verantwort an diese Scheißkisten abzugeben. Sie machen dumm, verantwortungs- und hilflos.

Hi all, on Friday the IT department in our company rolled out the latest update of Windoof, since then I get neither a sound when I play UTube content in FF, nor does FF play files that are embedded in a player on a website (Fehelermeldung that the content can not be played). I would love to finally give these monkeys from MaxiSchrott one on the fingers with the cane, because with every update I get to waste my precious lifetime on some bug fix that I don't give a damn about. I come from a time when the saying "Never change a runnig system" was true and that's how I still hold it today, unless I'm forced to by higher authorities. I want these crap boxes to run without me having to constantly screw something to them. That's when the cars with the old carburetors were even less prone to failure. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this problem (no sound, no player content playing)? I already installed the newest FF, restarted the computer several times, checked all possible audio settings - so that's not the problem. That's the reason why I'm resisting to give more and more of my intelligence and responsibility to these crap boxes. They make you stupid, irresponsible and helpless. This is a automated translation because I have not enough time to write it twice and, of course, all English speaking providers meanmwhile use machine translated text to "support" us, which is horroble to understand.

When I use my McAfee anti-virus full protection software to remove trackers, all trackers are removed from my browsers (Microsoft edge, chrome, etc) except for Mozilla Firefox. I always have 222 trackers not removed from my Firefox browser after every cleaning. Gosh even chrome does a better job than Mozilla Firefox. This is getting really creepy. Anyone's assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I would like to know how I can change the screen from portrait mode to landscape mode on a laptop. I assume this is done in the browser? There is an answer to this question from 2014, but that answer does not work anymore (I tried it). All the other answers seem to be for mobile devices. I would like to fit a certain amount of text from a website on one page. This is difficult in portrait mode. I am forced to zoom out to 50%, and it is then difficult to read the text. This is because I need to fit all the text on one page, for a screenshot. Please note that I don't want to switch permanently to landscape. I just want landscape for one website. So it should preferably be easy to switch back and forth between portrait and landscape. I have looked for this setting in my computer, and I can't find it. Sorry if this is a dumb question. But I have been unable to find the answer myself.

Hi All

I bought the Firefox OS Flame reference phone in 2014 to see what it was it was like. It came in a box with T2Mobile on it but is not a locked phone.

7 years later, it's 2021, and I've been using an Apple iPhone for 6 years and I wondered if Firefox OS was still going as I couldn't find a reference to it on the Mozilla Support page and I'd like to try using the phone again if possible. I know it's specs are very basic compared to phones today but I don't mind. It only supports 3G but I am on Vodafone Australia and as far as I'm aware they still support 3G even if it might be slow.

Appreciate any thoughts on if I can still use the phone and if Firefox OS if still going and has a recent version that might be able to install on my phone.

Here are the specs from the back of the box it came in plus a few other photos.

Dear Mozilla support,

I have to switch on or off my company's VPN access several times a day, and each time I switch the VPN, the Firefox simply refuses to use a new connection, behaving as there is no internet connection at all, forcing me to reset the browser each time so it could "accommodate to a new network environment". My company gives employees the Cisco AnyConnect SW for establishing the VPN access to the company's infrastructure.

Are you able to "fix" this please, as I haven't experienced this behavior at other browsers as well (Opera, IE)?

I can do this with the mouse, but I would like to use the keyboard to move the current tab to the end. The manual says : Ctrl + Shift + End - requires the currently selected tab to be "in focus" for instance, by hitting Alt + D to focus the address bar, and then Shift + Tab until you reach the browser tab bar ... This doesn't seem to work, or it doesn't work when you have 1.000 tabs open ... Trying to open the right-click menu using the keyboard doesn't work either (or cannot be done ?). If I could open the right-click menu of the tab, then I would be able to navigate to Move Tab -> Move to End, but that can't be done either ...  :-( Any help ? Would this be inspiration for a feature request ? Or defect fix ? (short-cut key doesn't work)

Hi guys,

I am experiencing this issue for quite a long time, after certain Windows 10 update Facebook on Firefox becomes really unusable, it is really slow, specially on features when there is typing involved. That means Messenger, commenting posts on Facebook, creating new posts etc. But even other stuff is slow as it is scrolling down, going through photos etc.

This is happening on my both PCs, my CPUs are Ryzen 5 3600, and Intel I7-4770, and GPU GTX 1660S, GTX 1050Ti, so I don`t see that hardware should bottleneck this in any case. In the meantime, I did restart with Safe mode, refreshed Firefox, even reinstalled which does not help. I have tried with other browsers, Facebook works fine there. Currently I am using latest Firefox 84.0.2 64bit on both PCs, and Windows 10 is 20H2 version.

I'm running the latest version of Firefox (85.0 64bit) on Windows 10.

Perhaps I could get help here.

I can't login in either https://www.icloud.com/ or https://tv.apple.com/

Screenshots of the problem are attached here. In both websites I see the circle as it is trying to load (on icloud, eventually, get an error "iCloud encountered an error while trying to connect to the server"). I've tried to use these websites with Chrome and Edge and it works normally.

Solutions I've tried but did not work: - cleaned cache and history; - turned off firefox protections against monitoring; - turned off uBlock Origin (it's the only plugin installed besides DuckDuckGo) - tried in private window, does not work as well

Is this a known bug or/and is there any solution? I can try anything you will suggest to me, I really need to open these websites and I do not want to use any other browser besides Firefox.
