How can cache audio/video files from mozilla-temp-files for offline use?

Hello everyone,

to archieve some good old games, I use an special version of Firefox. Firefox (MyPal): 29.2.0, with Adobe Flash preinstalled, Disk-Cache

For most games it will suffice: After loading all content online, it will be available offline too. But... some audio/video files will be saved in memory cache - %temp%\mozilla-temp-files\*[random-auffix] - instead of in disk cache. After closing session they get deleted and after restart they are saved again, with another suffix.

Sample file: http://arcaneonlinegame.epizy.com/Arcane/frames_files/midi/Ophelia's Journal.mp3 that is shipped with http://arcaneonlinegame.epizy.com/Arcane/Arcane.htm

How can I tell Firefox to permanent save streamed audio/video files, like Firefox does with everything else? In the end the music should play if I open the browser offline too.

Thank you in advance for your help. Drago

I want to use a command option to open a new blank tab in a specified portable instance of Firefox using a specified profile.

I constructed my command like this:

"Path-to-Firefox-executable" -profile "Path-to-Profile" -new-tab "about:blank"

It partially works (it opens the correct instance of Firefox and uses the correct specified profile) however it always opens about:newtab instead of about:blank.

Seeing as I am specifying the exact page to open, any New Tab settings in the browser should not matter, and I should just get the page that has been specified in the command.

If I manually type about:blank into the url bar, then a blank page opens as expected, so the url is correct, it just won't work for me as part of the above command line.

Does anybody else have this issue? How can I get this to work correctly?

Ever since the Firefox 115.2.0esr came out, all searches — not just Google but any sites that have a search box — freeze the page for nearly 10 full seconds before it initiates the search. I tried disabling my antivirus just to be sure an update to that isn't messing with things and it's not. This is definitely a Firefox issue and a VERY annoying one. I can't believe an emergency patch hasn't already been released!

I have a good 1080p monitor, which I can set up in either orientation. I have a hard time finding monitors which meet my accessibility needs, so a square/squarer monitor or a 2nd monitor would be expensive.

I have tried setting it up in vertical mode, to make it easier to read pdfs and to write. And ideally, to make it easier to avoid sidebars and/or move them away above the main content where they're less likely to trigger as many @##$% migraines.

I've noticed that most websites are designed for the horizontal layout. Elements disappear off the right edge, sometims with a horizontal scrollbar to reach them, sometimes without. Is there a trick to get miost or all websites to fit?

I use about:config fixes, add-ons, and user css to try to increase font sizes, switch colors, block animation, and reduce frame rates to completely block "smooth" animation. I can't do without these, so I don't think I could adapt the mobile version to my needs.

I've noticed *many* other problems in other apps, but if I can get all these websites working in Firefox, I can probably sort out the other problems elsewhere.

Hi, I get the below error message when trying to login to visma.net (for work).

json.parse unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data

On this note I have a previous error, loggin in to this site that was fixed by a support member (• accessibility.blockautorefresh = false), but I have the above hurdle left. I can get past it by clicking backspace but thought there might be a better solution - maybe some other setting I can adjust similar to the first fix I got help with.

The web address for this error message shows as: https://api.home.visma.com/home/rest/sso/login

I'm running 115.2.1esr x64 bit on Windows 7 pro. games on Facebook will not load I get 'Your browser does not support graphics API "WebGL2" error'.

In 'about:config' shows GL2 is enabled, yet Facebook games works with Google Chrome and MS Edge browsers, this seems to point to a Firefox issue.

I removed Firefox entirely, cleaning the registry etc, installed the latest version and get the same result.

Can anyone throw light on this? If need be I'll enclose

the troubleshooting info. 

Thanks, Dave

Hi, Ive got FF version 115.2.1esr 64bit- Macbook Pro High Sierra.. I was watching amazon shows and movies until last night, started to get the message from Amazon, "Video Unavailable- We're experiencing a problem playing this video, for assistance, etc..." I pulled up Chrome and the movies are playing just fine there. I put FF in 'safe mode' and the video is playing, so what does this tell me? If I can play the movie in safe mode why not in regular mode? Keep in mind that I was watching other movies earlier in the day and nothing changed during the day, I didnt download anything new, just business as usual. So what do I do now if the vid plays in safe mode and not the regular mode?

Thanks very much for any help.

After Firefox update 115.2.0esr (20230821110938) was installed on 9/8, I could not properly access my online banking accounts. Installation of Firefox update 115.2.1esr (20230912014149) on 9/16 did not resolve the issue. Can these two updates be uninstalled? I was still able to access my online banking accounts after Firefox update 115.1.0esr (20230724124053) was installed on 8/8. I want to revert back to that point to see if this will resolve the issue.

Thank you!
