Basically the subject! suddenly was unable to watch ANY youtube video. I cleared my cache 2x, restarted firefox, started it up again in safe mode, nada. I was only able to use youtube in Chrome. Any ideas on waht it might be? I'm stuck in the eternal buffering wheel of "If your video doesn't start soon, try restarting your device".

Hi, i would like to set my pdf handling as follows

1. When opening a pdf link, i need the file to open in browser, don't want it to download 2. When opening from download history, i want it to open in my pdf software

I believe this was the default in old firefox(some years ago). Currently if i set it to open in browser, point 1 will work but 2 won't (i have to right click and choose "open in xx app") if i set it to always open in other app, 2 will work but 1 won't. Back then i tried some settings which downloads the file to temp folder and open from there, i don't want that (not needed the file in download history) pls let me know if there is a solution. Thanks

I can install firefox in a 20.04 ubuntu image however I can't get the sound to come out to the host. I think it is because of these messages: oot@lnx01:/# firefox libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment. [Child 8724, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: 7fdc1c636ee0 OpenCubeb() failed to init cubeb: file /build/firefox-kPTBHF/firefox-128.0+build2/dom/media/AudioStream.cpp:285

I am using the tainted nvidia driver on my host. Has anyone got this to work? I messed around by adding various mesa drivers to the image with no fix. Any suggestions? I am using the ppa version of firefox in the container.
