WidevinCdm crashes. I have submitted multiple crash reports but not sure if any went through. There was no pop-up window or any field to describe the problem like what the 'Learn more..' link says when the crash occurs.


I have already seen other reports of this problem (e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334218 )


Crash seen on:

Firefox 78.10.0 Mac OS 10.9.5 (Can't upgrade further on existing HW)


I don't like the recommendation on the above URL to install an older version of Firefox. We never tell anyone to go back to old versions of our SW if the bug is created by the new version. For me, the crashes started right AFTER I upgraded Firefox to 78.10.0. I was watching CBS shows. So the crash has a definite connection to the Firefox upgrade. I haven't changed anything else on my MacBook. I had no problem watching the shows on previous versions of Firefox.

To reproduce the crash, try to watch a "free" CBS show ( e.g. https://www.cbs.com/shows/fbi/ ). No subscription needed for a few episodes available for free.

I prefer old theme of Firefox, with smaller buttons, comfortable navigation, but I'm sure, that you have users who likes new theme with large buttons and new "tab style". So... How can I downgrade only theme of Firefox? Cuz it is reallllyyyyyy not comfortable these large buttons and not minimalistic style. I prefer simple style, not easy (:

Hello!

I don't like to use DuckDuckGo, therefore I changed the Default Search Engine which works quite well. In addition I removed DuckDuckGo from the Search Shortcuts.

Nevertheless when I open a new tab and just type in "d" the first suggestion from auto-complete is always DuckDuckGo. This is quite annoying since one of my favourite websites starts with "d" as well. Is there a possibility to force auto-complete to suggest a specific website when I tipe in "d" or at least prevent auto-complete from suggesting DuckDuckGo?

Thanks!

Hello

Suddenly, all the favicons for my bookmarks are lost. Maybe it's because of a HP Cleaning tool.

However: Why doesn't Firefox "reload" the favicons when I open the bookmarks? Can I force the favicons to be re-loaded?

I am thankful for any help. Thanks already in advance for all the very nice supporters here!

First off, I tried to submit this using the "Submit Feedback" feature of the browser, but it's disabled right now, so I can't. Hopefully this works, or someone can tell me another way to request a feature from the developers.

I also know that I can use the Master Password feature to protect my passwords, but that's too extreme for my liking. I'm looking for a middle ground, where I don't have to enter my master password every time I want to use the browser, but I do want to enter it as a requirement for viewing my passwords in plain text.

Master password also seems to be blocking automatic log in on a lot of websites, so it is doubly annoying. :)

I've seen other people mention they would like this as well, so I think it would be a good thing to implement, which really wouldn't be too difficult to do.

I must have done something wrong here, although I don't think so. this is a follow up, i think, to my other long discussion here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334596

I followed almost everything here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

restarting everything did not work. but I do a lot of restoring config files (sqllite, json, etc...) by copying and pasting in the win explorer system. is that possibly the cause of this? I even re-installed FF, but the corporate peoples' attempt at massive control of the world is getting in the way I think. I know how to re-create the sqlLite files, which I will do now. but my question really is: could I have done something wrong by messing around with these files? I really didn't do much. images attached show more. thanks.

Running Firefox 82.0.3 on MacOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) -

If I go to full screen mode with Firefox, and then let my cursor get to close to the top of the window, it activates the dop-down of the menu bar. That's supposed to happen. But the bar is blank (the menu bar items appear above it), and hides tabs. And sliding my cursor away, the bar does not go away. Stuck. And can't resize Facebook to regular view to get rid of it. Need to close it and start over.

Thoughts?

OK, I'm having a LOT of trouble with my sync, and bookmark archiving. If I export my bookmarks as html, and import them, none are in folders anymore! As far as I can tell, asking Firefox to "restore" from a particular date does something similar. The only way I understand to back up my bookmarks, and more them to another machine in an organized way is with the Profile folder (and profile.ini file). When I share that folder and that file, everything is copied exactly, and organized properly. So that being the case, what the h are "backup", "restore", "import" and "export" useful for?

If there some writeup on EXACTLY how to manage bookmark backups in Firefox? I've never seen one. You'd like to believe that when you "restore" your bookmarks, they end up organized the way they were originally.

To all Firefox gurus:

RE: Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have Firefox 78.10.0esr (64-bit) with PLug-in Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have (Late-2012) Mac Mini with Mac OSX 10.9.5 (A MUST HAVE, due to it being the last version that is compatible with Nikon and other software no longer supported)

So, upgrading Mac Operating System is not an option.

And, upgrading Firefox does not seem to be an option, because 78.10.0esr is the last compatible version with the Mac 10.9.5 operating system.

The issue I am having is when I go to read the online edition of the newspaper. a long thin yellow bar appears at the top of the screen with "The Widevine Cdm has crashed. (Learn More)" and further down on the page it shows, "Video Player Error Sorry, there has been a technical error with this video stream." with an error code that relates to "Digital Rights Management" . . . It is checked in Preferences > General.

So, not sure what the problem is.

This has occurred within the past two weeks ONLY.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you, in advance.

I've used Firefox for many years, and NEVER has the "block audio and video" setting ever worked. It is really annoying to be trying to read an article and have a video playing - distracting me - while I'm trying to read. When I try to ignore it and scroll past, it pops out and starts playing in the lower right hand corner in the way of whatever I'm trying to read, so I have to close the video down. I'm not a programmer, I'm a simple user. Why is Mozilla even pretending to block videos when they don't?

Hi!

Been test driving Proton and quite liking it, but on both FF 89 and 90 im running into issue where opening bookmarks or history via library menu freezes browser ui. Restoring and maximizing window restores the functionality again until next time i try to access said menus. After restoring and maximizing it seems like all the actions i've tried happen at once. See video https://imgur.com/a/8f2tl0l. I have roughly 100 bookmarks, so that shouldn't be an issue.

This happens also on completely fresh install without any backups and new profile. As soon as I import my bookmarks or even bookmark couple new, random sites without restoring old bookmarks, this problem begins manifesting itself.

I've tried troubleshooting mode and that helps, but im still sure what causes the issue as just disabling hardware acceleration does not help and I have no other themes or extensions active atm. Just in case I've also tried updating graphics drivers to no avail.

Stable FF does not display such issue.

When trying to paste text in a message window this message pops up:

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

I have no idea why and have looked all over the FF settings for something to change, but no luck.

I'm also suddenly having problems with TamperMonkey not running scripts even though it shows they are enabled.

I was able to past directly into the "Plugins" window below.
