I am writing second time because something bugged and 10 mins of my text is gone...

Is there a way to stop video on page faster than rmb on every video and then controls and then when play/pause button is visible with other info like video lenght lmb on video to pause it? Like forcing browser to show video controls like this on every video on a page would be really nice because i often show controls to check how long video will be. Shouldn't it be like on youtube where you can see video controls just by moving your mouse over it and it auto dissaper after you stop moving it? Also there is really annoying bug or something, sometimes videos won't auto pause when i scroll down, and on pages with infinite stuff like 9gag it is really troublesome, you have to rmb then controls then lmb to stop it. Prevent videos from auto playing setting isn't working at all.

Firefox was working normally earlier in the day. I'm not aware of any updates on my computer. I didn't install add-ins. When I click the firefox icon to launch the program, the cursor momentarily has the hourglass symbol then nothing happens. There is not error message. Firefox is not shown in the task manager list. The firewall has mozilla firefox in the list of allowed programs. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, the refresh tool, deleting appdata files, temp files, anything I could find in the registry with mozilla in the name, then rebooting again then reinstalling. I don't want to go back to Chrome... =(

Hello,

My wife and I both use the same computer and before, she used to use Firefox exclusively while I used Chrome exclusively. I've decided to move away from Chrome and into Firefox myself. I have discovered the use of different "Profiles" to keep our browser separate. I even created two shortcuts to load up our profiles separately. However, it keeps the firefox icon on the taskbar the same for both of us. While I don't see a Huge issue with it long-term potentially, is there a possibility I can make it so Firefox opens in a way that there are two different... programs? Where she has one icon on the taskbar, and I have my own? That way it is truly "separate"?

Thank you.

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

why cannot we permanently get rid of the datareporting folder that is created in the profiles folder? It has been stated before that "no data is collected" yada yada yada when the particular options are set, and they are, yet the folder still reappears. I so not allow tab restore, all privacy settings are set to prevent this that i can find; changed in about:config toolkit.telemetry.unified to false toolkit.telemetry.enabled to false datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled to false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled to false user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.unified", false);

Stop it please. It slows down page loads and if, IF, no data is collected, why create it???

The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In.

Weird problem: 'Search in page' (CTRL+F) orks fine on most pages but is not working on one particular page

The page search facility (Ctrl+F) works fine for most pages, but doesn't work on one particular page.

The page in question happens to be my home page and is one that I created via Macromedia Dreamweaver. It is my web portal containing numerous links (to all the sites I usually access).

I press Ctrl+F and the search box appears at bottom of screen, as usual. I enter a word in the search box, click the up and down arrows, but it doesn't find any matches, even though that word definitely exists on the page (multiple times). (The Highlight All, Match Case, Whole Words options are not selected). If I enable "Highlight All", nothing is highlighted.

This problem has surfaced in the last month or so. I suspect it may have crept in with a recent Firefox update, as this wasn't a problem in the past. My setup: Desktop PC, Win 10 (64bit), Firefox is 82.0 (64-bit) -the current version, and I'm using the Default Theme.

PS: I opened the same page with Microsoft Edge and the Page Search works fine there. .... but Firefox is my preferred browser, so I need to get to the bottom of this problem.

Any suggestions on how I can resolve this weird problem?
