I started having an issue where I do not get any audio from Firefox. Everything else works fine. Firefox is not muted, it's not turned down in the mixer. I completely uninstalled using Revo Uninstaller to make sure ALL registry and directories were deleted. When I reinstalled it did not give me the "You've already installed" message, so I know this was a complete reinstall.... Still no audio at all.

When I go to the Yahoo main page, using Google and selecting Yahoo News - Current News it shows content but when you try to action anything it doesn't do anything and then shows an error. (see attached screenshots).

I have carried out all the recommended procedures including cookies, cache, etc and restarted Firefox with all Add-ons disabled and it still does not help with this problem.

I have used Yahoo for years and never had this problem and I have tried using Edge and Chrome and everything works as it should so it is definitely a Firefox issue.

So any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Why does Firefox delete ALL history when it asks if you'd like to clear RECENT history. I was silly enough to click on a phishing link and although I exited as soon as I realised nothing was happening, I asked my security system provider if there was anything I could or should do. Could I login to my bank account, for instance. They suggested removing the item from my browser history. So when I saw the option to delete RECENT history, I thought that would be OK - I didn't need anything I had visited recently. But when I looked I noticed that it had cleared the lot!!

Hi,

About 2 weeks ago or so, I started having issues with Youtube on Firefox. It's difficult to explain, but basically, I'll sign on to Youtube. Youtube will show my profile with all my video recommendations and subscriptions. But, if I click the red Youtube home button on the top left of the page to refresh the site or click a different video, Youtube signs me out and shows me the homepage as if I was signed out or did not have an account. When I do sign back in again, my video recommendations are all messed up (they are mostly the general video recommendations from the unsigned in home page and nothing related to the channels or videos that I watch). When I go to my subscriptions, I have to sign in again. It's becoming really frustrating. I did a full uninstall of Firefox, and it briefly worked, but then Youtube went back to the way it's been behaving. I've cleared my history and cache. I've disabled all extensions. I've logged in and out. Nothing seems to work. Youtube does seem to work normally on Chrome and Edge, and I have not had any issues with any other websites on Firefox. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or have any advice?

I really enjoy using Firefox, and since everything else seems to work, I'd prefer to keep using it. I really don't want to have to resort to using Chrome or Edge to watch Youtube videos.

I'm running Firefox version 83.0 (64bit) on Windows 10

Hi, I used to be able to simply use the "Print" option in Firefox by selecting it from the top right "3 horizontal bars" dropdown, and it would print the pages I was looking at using the printer settings I had for the printer I chose. Now it ignores an important printer setting I have set "Double-sided Printing" for my HP Officejet Pro 6978 printer and prints on only one side of the paper. Why did this change, and how do I get Firefox to obey the settings I have set for this printer? I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) with WIndows 10, and my Windows 10 is up to date with all updates. Thanks, Jerry

When I do a search using the address bar, clicking a search engine won't take me to the result directly. Instead a blue box (e.g. @Google) pops up in the address bar, and I have to click one more time to do the search. But the Firefox installed in my office needs one click only (i.e. no blue box pop-up). Is there a way to prevent the blue box from appearing?

(Both versions of Firefox are up to date, 83.0 64bit)

I'm curious when I do the following with the browser, click History, select from Clear Recent History, have it set for Everything and have all the boxes checked, how is it when I visit a certain website it still show me log into there website? I thought if I delete the everything( cookies, cache ) this wouldn't be the case. Is there a way for the browser to be completely clean from all? thanks

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Running v 60 ESR, downgraded from v 68, with zero problems for 3 weeks.

I've had this problem all of a sudden since last week. Steps I've taken so far:

  • Changed "security.tls.version.min" to 3 from 1 (didn't work)
  • Deleted cert8.db (didn't work)
  • Changed to Google DNS (not sure)
  • Changed to "auto-detect proxy" from "system proxy" (not sure, maybe)
  • Disabled IPV6 (not sure, maybe)
  • Turned off/on wifi hotspot, rebooted laptop (not sure, maybe)

The last 3 steps I took at the same time and they worked. On reboot the problem went away, albeit for 2 days!

It just came back, now it's performing a TLS handshake on about half the sites, with loading after 30-60 seconds or not at all. From searching, I see that solutions are all over the place on this and it's specific to FF. A post clearly identifies a Symantec certificates issue.

This is probably the toughest issue I've come across on FF.

Current preference settings are increased font size to 14pt and zoom 110%. Since I set those preferences some websites, mainly ones with form fields, come up as a boxed question mark. Also when I do an internet search is comes out crazy alien like text / weird code. See attached screen shot of a basic search for 'books'. I prefer using Firefox over Safari and would love to remedy this.

Using current version 83 on Mac OS 10.15.7.

Thank you
