When attempting to watch any programme on LiveGo.tv there is an error message across the screen where I would normally see the programme "Video format or MIME type is not supported" I have never had this before with Windows XP or Windows 10 but I now have a new PC with Windows 8.1 installed as the OS. I can watch as normal on IE but would prefer to use Firefox.

Any fixes?

When I start up my computer and open Firefox none of my accounts are active, I have to log into each one of them even if I check "remember me." When I close Firefox and reopen it after having logged into all my accounts in the first session, all my accounts are active. When I turn off my computer, and turn it back on again and open Firefox, my accounts aren't active. The only account that stays logged in is Google.

Here is a picture of my all my relevant settings, add-ons, and plugins.

I've tried the "Refresh Firefox" option on the Mozilla Website.

Thanks for the help!

We have high data usage, in fact in the past 5 days we've used 6 GB of data... I don't understand where this is being used. We don't upload/download much, rarely watch videos, etc. I'm just trying to figure out where this data is being used. On my laptop it states firefox has used 6.3 GB of data in the past 30 days. Is that high? Thanks!

Per instructions for the router, I enter the address 192.168.1.1 in the address box. I have to enter my username and password. They are correct but are not not accepted. The name and password are right -- they work with Internet Explorer, though I do get a message about an unsecure connection.

What do I have to do to allow this with Firefox?

Linux/Ubuntu and Windows: creating firefox profile for different users from command line

Hi, I would like to create from command line by using the administrator user of a system the same firefox profile with plugin and customization for each user of the same system. I cannot use sync feature for this purpose.

I know from here edit https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...d_Line_Options https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options ~J99that the correct syntax is the following firefox -CreateProfile "JoelUser c:\internet\joelusers-moz-profile". On Linux/Ubuntu the following piece of code allows to create a profile for the sudo user


user=$(sudo logname)
firefoxProfile="/home/$user/.mozilla/firefox"
if [ ! -d "$firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile" ]; then
    rm -rf $firefoxProfile
    firefox -CreateProfile "profile $firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
        
    7z x -y ./m4v6pi7q.profile.7z
    mv ./m4v6pi7q.profile/* "$firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
    sudo chown -R $user:$user "/home/$user/.mozilla/"
    rm -rf m4v6pi7q.profile.7z m4v6pi7q.profile
fi

On Windows the following piece of code allows to create a profile for the administrator user


$ProgramsPath=${env:ProgramFiles}
$FirefoxProfile="$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\u9w6vbcj.profile"
if(-Not (Test-Path $FirefoxProfile))
{
	$LocalProfile="$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*"
	if(Test-Path $LocalProfile)
	{
		Remove-Item $LocalProfile -recurse
	}
	
	$RoamingProfile="$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*"
	if(Test-Path $RoamingProfile)
	{
		Remove-Item $RoamingProfile -recurse
		Remove-Item "$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini"
	}
	& "$ProgramsPath\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -CreateProfile "profile $FirefoxProfile"

	& "$ProgramsPath\7-Zip\7z.exe" x -y .\u9w6vbcj.profile.7z
	move .\u9w6vbcj.profile\* $FirefoxProfile -force
	Remove-Item .\u9w6vbcj.profile.7z
	Remove-Item .\u9w6vbcj.profile
}

How can I create firefox profiles from a sudo/administrator user for each user (sudo/administrator and not sudo/administrator) of the system? On Linux/Ubuntu I tried with this code


usersList=$(getent passwd | grep -vE '(nologin|false)$' | \
awk -F: -v min=`awk '/^UID_MIN/ {print $2}' /etc/login.defs` \
-v max=`awk '/^UID_MAX/ {print $2}' /etc/login.defs` \
'{if(($3 >= min)&&($3 <= max)) print $1}' | \
sort -u)

for systemUser in $usersList; do
    echo $systemUser

    firefoxProfile="/home/$systemUser/.mozilla/firefox"
    firefox -CreateProfile "profile $firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
    7z x -y ./m4v6pi7q.profile.7z
    mv ./m4v6pi7q.profile/* "$firefoxProfile/m4v6pi7q.profile"
    chown -R $systemUser:$systemUser "/home/$systemUser/.mozilla/"
    rm -rf m4v6pi7q.profile.7z m4v6pi7q.profile
    
done

but it does not work and this is the output


sudo ./user.sh 
foo
Success: created profile 'profile /home/foo/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile' at '/home/foo/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile/prefs.js'
admin
Success: created profile 'profile /home/admin/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile' at '/home/admin/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile/prefs.js'
jack
Success: created profile 'profile /home/jack/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile' at '/home/admin/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile/prefs.js'
chown: cannot access ‘/home/jack/.mozilla/’: No such file or directory
zorro
Success: created profile 'profile /home/zorro/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile' at '/home/admin/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile/prefs.js'
chown: cannot access ‘/home/zorro/.mozilla/’: No such file or directory

Why for the first two users is the directory for profile corretly set, while for the other is the directory of the user that executes the script /home/admin/.mozilla/firefox/m4v6pi7q.profile? I'm sorry for my very long question. Thank you
