The problem: Some videos on YouTube gives me the "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available." "Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video." It's only a few of the newer videos on YouTube that is giving me this problem, it's not base on the uploader as i can watch some of their other newly uploaded videos. Furthermore at the same time this started to be a problem i also noticed another one, the side bare on the left would often not load.

I believe this problem started for me after the latest update i did to windows 10.

I am running 82.0.2 (64-bit) version of Firefox. i have tried most of the things listed in other post without success, disabling all extensions, running in safemode, resetting Firefox and reinstalling Firefox

The other day a few programs got downloaded by accident so I went to Control (Windows 10) and deleted them. I recall at the time that it also added an add on or two in my Firefox Browser.

A couple of things are not working normally when I do a Google search with Firefox so I thought I should go back and delete the add ons that went into my Firefox which I didn't want.

But when I now go to tools and down to add ons all I get is a blank page.

I suspect the problem can be answer by deleting Firefox from my computer and downloading from the start but that will delete all the add ons that I have in the past put into Firefox and I cannot remember them all except Add Block, Webmail Ad Blocker and Adblock Plus.

Can someone please advise me but remember I am old and not at all computer savvy so any help will have to be in very basic description or guide.

Please ???????

Hello, I am using a new HP computer with Firefox as my main browser. I use two screens. I have had problems with Firefox for the past couple of weeks. I usually have a couple of windows of Firefox open. One on the first screen with multiple tabs and another on the other screen. I also run chat programs, Discord, Antivirus programs, Zoom, Slack, and a few others.

Firefox crashing has also crashed other programs. I have had Discord crash a few times and Displayfusion crash as well.

I updated FireFox to the newest version. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled. I updated Windows. Flash is turned off. My video drivers are updated. I checked for viruses and spyware. I did have some Bit Coin Mining malware detected, but it was quarantined last week. All scans now are clear.

I believe the latest updates for Firefox made some changes so that a fixed background image in a WordPress cover block does not stay fixed. It used to work about 2 weeks ago, now it does not. But, the fixed background behaves as expected in MS Edge.

https://www.cemalekin.com/test/layout-test/ https://www.cemalekin.com/test/test-page/

In the first linked page there is one such block, in the second one there are two. None works in Firefox, either on my Surface Book 2 laptop or my desktop with a 27" monitor. The same pages will show the expected behavior when viewed in MS Edge.

I tried the following:

  • Restarted FF with all the add-ons disabled
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Removed the entire custom CSS from the site
  • Tried different themes

Nothing made any difference. I have been a Firefox user for a long time and do not want to switch. I also want the visitors using Firefox be able to have the same experience. Any suggestion to fix this problem will be much appreciated. Or a repaired version of Firefox release will be most welcome.

Thank you.

Firefox Cookies Being Deleted

Since the most recent Firefox for Windows update, all of my Firefox browsers on my PCs have suddenly stopped saving my already logged in cookies for my major use websites, such as Facebook, Outlook, Amazon, and Netflix. For the past few years, these websites all stay logged in, even when I have Firefox set to delete cookies when the browser is closed, in part because I have these websites all carefully noted in the cookies and site data exceptions. As I said, I've never had problems for the past few years. But since the most recent update a few weeks ago, all of my websites log me out after 24 hrs. I even changed the main cookies settings to not delete any cookies when the browser is closed, but that makes no difference. Something has changed in the most recent Firefox that has disabled the managed exceptions to cookie deletion. I'd love some help on how to fix this, as changing settings does not seem to do it.

Today (oct30) Netflix has stopped working on FF. I'm running v.82.0.2 which just updated maybe yesterday or the day before. It was working yesterday. I'm getting an error "This title is not available to watch instantly - Error code F7121-1331" and won't load any title. I can watch on MS Edge alright. I've tried FF in Safe Mode with no improvement. Any ideas? Thanks.

Since the latest update v82.0.2 i can not login into chase.com. At first i thought something happened with firefox. Use Edge to log in an no problems at all. Coming back to FF at chase.com loads fine. As soon as i log in im presented with missing layouts buttons and no text. Under the Network monitor i see that a lot of scripts and json files are blocked or empty(0 bytes).

Is anyone else experiencing this issue ? Prior version of FF worked just fine. What happened ?

The issue: on all sites, whenever media with audio plays (either automatically, or when I click), the audio stops after 2-3 seconds. If it is video, the video continues to play without sound. When it is audio-only, such as bandcamp, the timestamp stops. Audio resumes playing if I rewind or manually move the timestamp handle (scrubber?) back. This must be repeated each time the media is paused. Audio does not resume playing if play and pause are pressed, or if the site is refreshed.

Troubleshooting steps attempted so far:

  • Tried a different browser. Microsoft Edge works just fine.
  • Allowed autoplay for both audio and video
  • Cleared cache, and ensured that cookies were allowed
  • Turned off all adblockers
  • Uninstalled flash
  • Refreshed firefox settings

I'm at a loss!

Hi All

When opening a website and usually the first one on a google search. I get the following message. Hmm we are having trouble finding that site. We cant connect to the server at ad.doubleclick.net. Then try again etc.

Also if I google search for say "Shoes" the first listing will have a small ad placed in front of the first letter of the first word.

Thank you

I am running FireFox 82.02 (64 bit) on a windows 10 computer. The " you must log in to this network" message leading to the https://detectportal.firefox.com/success.txt "success.txt response when picked. Iead the article which said to : (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste captiv and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the network.captive-portal-service.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

If you are in a managed environment using an autoconfig file, for example, you could use this to switch the default:

user_pref("network.captive-portal-service.enabled", false);

Did all of that and the current switch is FALSE, but I continue to have the error each time I open FireFox.Been using FF for years with ZERO problems and never want to switch. What am I (not) doing?

Thanks in advance for any help.
