Hi, when I try to watch a video on Prime Video I get error saying that the plugin crashed.

I asked a similar question on Reddit here and now I’m quite sure that the plugin is the Widevine plugin.

I tried everything I’ve been suggested but still I can’t solve this issue.

Does anyone have any other tips? Thanks

Since the new update was released I have been unable to figure out how to have the 'Open with Firefox' option for PDFs display the URL for the website and not my computer's program files.

I link a number of PDFs for my work and currently need to switch to Chrome to obtain the correct link, which is unnecessary and time consuming, prompt help would be greatly appreciated!

Since the last update, I am receiving the error message SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT when I access one website that I need to use as part of my work.

It is a trusted site that I have used for many years. The error message above displays and I get the option to retry which usually works, but I lose any content up to that point.

I have contacted the website owners as suggested and they say it is a Mozilla issue. I found a couple of suggestions to fix this on-line, but it did not work.

Can you help?

Firefox restricts me from renaming or moving folders that contain files I downloaded with it

No matter what I do, it just eventually happens EVERYTIME. The worst part is that I can't predict when it will happen next time.

For some reason, when I download a file with Firefox (Firefox is currently set to always download files right to my Desktop), and then move it from my Desktop (which is obviously located in C: drive) to my external drive, place it in some folder and after that try to move that folder in the other place, or rename it - I just can't because that folder, or files within it are currently being used by some other program (I'm sorry, what?).

But! The solution is very simple: if I close Firefox and try again - ta-da! The folder is no longer used by anything, and I can do what I wanted to do with success.

This is very, VEEERY annoying! Additionally, I'll add a screenshot showing all of extensions installed in my browser, as well as troubleshoot info (if that might help). Anyone, please, help me fix that!

My system is Firefox 79, Windows 10. Lazy loading is supported in Firefox since version 75: https://caniuse.com/#feat=loading-lazy-attr

I found that this works on Firefox for lazy loading of images. However, YouTube embedding in an iframe, it doesn't work. I ensured that the video is long way below the fold. Even then, the iframe is loaded upfront. This is the HTML for the iframe:

<iframe loading="lazy" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iQBat7e0MQs" allowfullscreen="" width="480" height="270"></iframe>

On Chrome, lazy loading works as expected for the same web page (on my localhost).

I was using Firefox in my computer and it was working fine. But after I migrated to windows 10 Os and installed Firefox, I am facing some issues with Firefox. First of all, the gmail.com page is not loading correctly (image added). Also some websites like geeksforgeeks and other websites are having trouble to show some images (mainly).

- what I tried doig previously. 1. Doing ctrl + shift + r on those pages 2. Uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with clearing firefox app data folder from windows computer. 3. Doing a refresh from help menu. 4. Tried running in safe mode. (disabling all extensions) 5. Clearing cache and data from firefox settings.

How how to show them perfectly. however they show good in chrome, but I want to use firefox. So a fix will be highly appreciated.

Hello

Such web pages after loaded, show the video embeded window in white with in the middle written : "Click to activate Adobe Flash Player"

It is on Linux Mint 19.3 with Firefox 79.0 , FFMPEG is the last version proposed by the depositories : 7:3.4.8-0ubuntu0.2 Opera show the same issue So I must use Google Chrome for these websites Linux Mint 19.3 installation USB key is not affected

If I accept Flash to display these video, the quality is too bad, compared with HTML5, it is like some 240p enlarged to 1080p

eBay intermittently incompatible with current release of Firefox, no fixes working

-Restart PC done -Cache cleared -Safe mode used -Works on IE, Edge, Chrome

I read about a different Firefox issue and I am able to visit this page FYSA: https://ir.ebaystatic.com/rs/v/4ups3vxocu2mherdhxh5b2kdxml.css

Is this something that Mozilla would be able to fix in the next update?

Tab crashes shortly after page load. Can someone tell me if there's a workaround for this crash? We're using ImageBitmapRenderingContext to transfer some images to canvas, and this works in Firefox 78.

Some potentially relevant details: the code isn't perfect and we may be attempting to transfer some neutered images. These images are being generated from another canvas using createImageBitmap()

Unfortunately, the site is commercial, and somewhat complicated, so I can't share the source.

Hello,

On my website I have a button to download my book in EPUB format. You can see it here: https://imwithlorac.com/get-the-book/#downloads

In the other browsers the file is downloaded, but in Mozilla it opens directly in the browser and unless you have installed in Mozilla an EPUB reader, a page with the raw file opens which does not make any sense. It's the same with the MOBI format. On the other hand, with the PDF format the PDF book opens because Mozilla can open PDF files. What I want is that it doesn't open, but that it downloads when people click on the link.

Does anyone know how?

Thanks

Recently (within the last two weeks) I've noticed that my mouse cursor will randomly jump to the upper corner of my screen while viewing a page within Firefox. From my observation it's only happening within Firefox, and the only variable I can think of is that I started using containers to visually differentiate my tabs. I've since tried to revert back, but the problem persists.

I'm running a Surface Book (Gen 1) with dock and multiple monitors. If there's any additional information needed to better diagnose the problem I'm happy to supply it if it means finding a resolution.
