Hello, after a week of using my camera before the update on firefox it was fine. After the update I haven't used it much but when I tried to test my camera in Google Meet 3 days before a meeting it keeps saying Camera is Starting. I don't want to use other browsers because it runs slow on my computer, is there any fix to this? Need help ASAP.

Fellow Firefox users, here is my problem:

Until yesterday (6/28/21), YouTube worked with no problems in Firefox. All of a sudden, YouTube does not function properly in Firefox. Videos will start, and within about two minutes, the video freezes and the spinning circle comes up. YouTube functions fine in Microsoft Edge. I have tried to reset everything, but it doesn't make a difference--YouTube isn't functioning as it should on this computer. I had a Microsoft Windows update on this computer in the last few days, but I don't think it is that because it was working after those downloaded. What should I do?

Mozilla replaced the Feedback page with a "Challenges" page, so this looks like the only place to send real feedback. The Firefox 89 update appears to render Firefox as useless as Edge has become (at least for me). I don't need more pictures and an "experience." I need my toolbars to stay where I can find them, and I need to set them in the linear arrangement that I need to use them. To reveal any more would be "TMI," so I will just add this. I keep my update settings on manual in order to keep updates from crashing my custom accessibility settings. From what I read about the "ff" 89 update, I knew that "floating tabs" would be a disaster for me, so I did not even try it. I hope that Mozilla will at least consider a way for users to preserve their custom or "legacy" settings in the next update. The corporate culture that is Mozilla should remember that computers exist to serve people, not the other way around. Thank you and good-bye.

when using HBO Max Streaming service with Firefox, latest Stable, that you must have whichever tab/window playing the media be the primary active screen. Because when using PiP or switching to a different windows causes the media to lag and buffer. Playing only a few seconds. When you make that Tab the primary, it resumes normal uninterrupted playback. Why is this?

I am assuming its something to do with the processing it takes to use HBO Max and when its not the primary it reduces resources from it for other things. Which is a huge bummer since PiP mode is useless in this situation. 

To clarify, I only experience this with HBO Max. Other Streaming services work smoothly, even in PiP mode

After a recent migration of everything from an old PC to a new one, the Firefox logo does not appear in any of the HTML file icons on my new computer. They are all blank.

It apparently a problem unique to Firefox, and only involves the display of the Firefox logo. Although the icon is blank, when it is clicked, the document is opened by Firefox.

If I right-click on a blank HTML document icon and select "Properties", to the right of "Opens with:" is the Firefox logo. If I then click "OK", the Firefox logo remains in the "Properties" window, but the icon remains blank.

If I click on "Change", select "Microsoft Edge" and click "OK", the "Microsoft Edge" logo appears to the right of "Opens with:", and the HTML document icon also displays the Microsoft Edge logo.

There is a similar result when I select "Google Chrome", "Internet Explorer", or even "Notepad". The corresponding logo appears in the HTML document icons.

Any and all suggestions are welcomed.

Everytime I go to my bank, it's a crapshoot as to whether it thinks I'm a tablet / phone or a PC. And, I'm using a PC. I can't do things in tablet mode that I can do when I get it to see if I'm a PC. I know I'm screwed when it suggests that I download the app because I can do more there.  :(

And, I am still trying to figure out why, and how I'm able to get it to change it's mind! And, there's no "desktop mode" on the menu anymore, so I can't force it that way. It's really frustrating when I'm trying to reconcile my bank. I can't click on the Cleared button in "tablet" mode. I used to see it on my 360 convertible, and figured it was hardware based. But, now it's a straight laptop, no tablet mode.

Is it possible to disable autoplay videos on sites like CNN or NBC while still allowing video to be played on demand? I have disallowed autoplay on these sites because they have annoying, intrusive videos on about every single page, but I still *do* sometimes want to watch selected videos. With autoplay disabled, the "play" button in videos does not work, either. As it is, I have been disabling, then re-enabling, the autoplay block before/after watching a video, which sort of works as a work-around, but I'd really like a real solution--one that blocks autoplay but allows play on demand.

It stays visible even when I switch to my start screen as you see in the pictures.

Since the 89.0.1 update on Windows 10 21H1 (Build 19043.1055), Firefox will not let my PC sleep, unless I quit and re-open Firefox. There is no audio playing on any tabs, but after a while of using Firefox on YouTube or whatnot, it will not release the audio device to let Windows put my monitors to sleep even though all playback has ended.

This can clearly be seen by running "powercfg /requests" as an administrator.

With videos playing, as expected Firefox reserves the audio device, as well as an Execution request.

Output: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe non-display request

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

But after you stop playing the video the output becomes: [ PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> powercfg /requests DISPLAY: [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume6\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe display request

SYSTEM: [DRIVER] High Definition Audio Device (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438581&REV_1000\4&2d156fef&0&0001) An audio stream is currently in use.

AWAYMODE: None.

EXECUTION: None.

PERFBOOST: None.

ACTIVELOCKSCREEN: None. ]

You can see the audio device doesn't get released, and the only resolution is to quit and restart Firefox.

This doesn't always happen, but does happen after a while.

I am trying to include some PDFs in iframe tags on my website. Previously they appeared as normal, embedded within the page. But now whenever the page is loaded firefox prompts the user with the "What should firefox do with this file?" window or whatever the default action for the PDF file type is. It does not display the content on the page and the iframe is just blank. The iframes still work on chrome so it does not appear to be an issue with my code.

I know that the autofill for credit cards is only available in the US and Canada (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill#w_edit-your-saved-credit-cards). I live in the US. The feature was working just fine... until I traveled overseas and used my laptop there and changed time zones to where I was visiting. Now that I'm back in the US, the feature is missing. In the settings, I don't see a "Forms and Autofill" section in the settings. I checked system locale and it's properly set to us-en. All the settings are properly set in about:config. I've tried everything I found by searching online and nothing helped. I even tried creating a separate profile in Firefox to see if the section shows up under setting with no luck.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
