I have been running Mozilla that comes default with Ubuntu 18.04 for the last one and a half months but not been able to play most videos and gifs. Youtube runs properly but Amazon Prime does not. I tried restarting in the safe mode and still couldn't get it to work. I only added an ad-blocker add on and disabling this did not help too.

I browse reddit and one thing I noticed is that gfycat gifs play fine but rest of them just don't play. They just show a picture of the first frame, no error messages as such.

Displaying website wrongly in fullscreen mode only - strip at the bottom of the screen

I'm using Firefox 65.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home (1809) OS build 17763.292. When I open Firefox on full-screen on my laptop screen, there's a strip at the bottom of t… (read more)

I'm using Firefox 65.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home (1809) OS build 17763.292. When I open Firefox on full-screen on my laptop screen, there's a strip at the bottom of the screen, hiding the bottom of the website page I'm on. The strip is like a screen shot from a previous website I might have visited. This doesn't happen if I'm not in full-screen mode, and strangely it doesn't happen if I drag the same Firefox window onto my external monitor (HDMI connected, 1080p, 24 inch). The phenomenon occurs in Private mode as well. Anyone knows anything about this bug? Is there a fix?

I have a SolarEdge installation since spring 2018. I used to log in without any problem but lately (couple of months) when I log-in I have to prove I am not a robot by identifying a lot of silly pictures with cars, traffic lights etc.

I have been advised to switch to Chrome but I like Firefox and cannot see why this problem should exist.

I got a new Dell laptop for Christmas and started using it a couple of weeks ago. Loading Firefox was one of the first actions I took. I have a McAfee subscription so I signed into my McAfee account so I could add it, and got a message asking if I would like to install McAfee Web Boost, an extension that automatically pauses videos unless I tell it to play them. I have a data cap, and this extension would help a lot with my data usage. I told it to install, and and it worked like a charm. My wife asked if I could install it on her computer, too. Here's where it gets weird. It's not in Firefox's list of extensions! Since McAfee loaded it on my computer, I contacted their tech support, asking it how I could load it onto my wife's Firefox browser. I was told the extension was for Chrome and they didn't make one for Firefox. I spent several minutes trying to tell the tech their Web Boost loaded into Firefox, the icon is there among my extensions, and the damn thing works. All the tech could do was load the extension into Chrome, which my wife hadn't uninstalled from her machine. The extension obviously works with Firefox, so how can I get it onto my wife's computer? The version is 1.0.0.25006.

Since updating to Firefox 65.0.1 on my Mac, all my bookmarks have gone, and the 'Import and backup' star icon has gone too, so I can't restore them. I have spent hours trying to solve the problem, but I can't. I also have a Windows computer (which fortunately is synced with the Mac) so I have been able to copy the HTML file to a memory stick, but since the Import and Backup star icon is gone from the Mac, I don't know what else to do. Same problem with using Mac's bookmarkbackups file. I'm going nuts, it now seems tht every time I update Firefox a new set of problems occur! Please help, and thank you in advance.

I recently had to replace my laptop. The new one runs Max 10.12.6 Sierra.

I installed Firefox made it the default browser and moved the shortcut to the dock. Several times it has removed the icon and replaced it with a question mark, which will not open Firefox when clicked, even though the question mark says that it's Firefox. I can still run Firefox by double clicking the icon in the Applications folder. It then goes through the 'verifying Firefox' step again, and reminds me that 'Firefox is an application downloaded from the internet.' and asks if I really want to open it.

Any clues about what's going on?

When I try to use the find bar, it shows up black and won't search for text. It doesn't even say "phrase not found." I tried searching for words I knew were in the webpage and that I could see and it still wouldn't work. The quick search bar does the same. I tried restarting with add-ons disabled and nothing happened. I'm kind of at a loss at what to do.

Here's an image of the find bar if that helps any.

The bug seems to appear out of nowhere. A couple of days ago firefox started hanging at sudden moments. Now I've come across this: I open a .mp4/YouTube/other video, it starts playing nicely. But then, after I press a full-screen button (or the "F" key) , firefox hangs, which means: video player controls seem inanimate (the video continues playing non full-screen though), browser tabs act like they're a static picture (but if I press CTRL + T many times and then close it with a keybinding, it shows the message askingi if i'm sure I want to close my N tabs). All the logs I'm conscious about are here: https://hastebin.com/sogaheviju.sql
