Hello everyone. I noticed a small problem on my own. When I open a channel on YouTube, the video that is on the main page of the channel I went to starts by itself. I know this is normal. But when I then go to another channel in YouTube, the video from the main page of the first channel continues to be launched. I went to listen to the radio on the channel, but the music and sound from the previous video got mixed, they started to sound together. I'm using Linux Mint 20.1 and I don’t know how things are on Windows. So I think the problem is hidden in the browser itself.

I've ran apt remove --purge firefox and completely deleted the ~/.mozilla directory, reinstalled and still get a Mozilla Crash Reporter window.

If I try to run firefox from terminal I get: (Running in safe mode (firefox --safe-mode) makes no difference.)

   [GFX-]: glxtest: libpci missing.  

I haven't made any config or extension changes since it stopped working, and not sure what could be causing this. I don't mind starting from scratch, just need Firefox back. :)

I've just received an email on my - previously - main email address (let's say: e1), about a data breach on another (e2) email address of mine.

When I log in to Firefox Monitor, with my main email address (e3), only that email address is displayed as monitored. The whole list (I don't know, 10+ addresses) that should be monitored, is gone.

Can someone explain to me a. why is the mail not send to the main email address and b. where is my list of monitored email addresses?

The push notifications from allowed sites are enabled in the privacy and security settings, but the little box that's supposed to pop up isn't popping up. I depend on these quite a bit on YouTube, so I need them to work. Any ideas on what might be blocking them? If you could give me a list of things to try, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance!

Would love to switch from Safari to Firefox on my iPhone. Found Mozilla Help instructions, but there is no listing in the App Store for "Firefox for iOS page." I see only Firefox Private Safe Browser and Firefox Focus: Privacy. Neither shows a Get or Install button. I tried tapping the first icon of these two. When I tap the icon, I see "open this link in external app? with a link. I can click ok or cancel. When I do either of those, it just takes me back to where I was. Please advise...

Firefox is up to date as are my video drivers. This issue only occurs on Firefox, playing the videos in Chrome or IE results in smooth and expected playback at all resolutions and frame rates (1080 60fps, 4k, etc).

When playing videos through the Firefox browser however, the video will stutter, repeat and recycle frames periodically, causing weird and unpleasant frame jumps. The audio playback does not seem to be affected at all.

I disabled the small number of add-ons I have and the problem still persists.

Hi everyone,

My Windows 10 Firefox updated to 86, and I noticed a change in how some jQuery Mobile controls are rendering.

If you go here and scroll down to the 'Checkboxes' section: https://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.4.5/forms/

You'll see that the control group is no longer rendering with a block display style. Previous versions, along with all versions of Chrome, Edge, etc, have them taking up the entire container width. I have attached a few screenshots for convenience.

I can work around this in my product, but this may be a canary in the coal mine of many other display differences. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them.

Thanks and have a great day!

I updated my iOS to Big Sur, and now many emails on Yahoo are displaying content as gobbledygook. Sometimes it's the subject lines, signatures, and email addresses in emails and the threads of forwarded emails. Other times it's the text on home listings or job ads. This isn't happening on my gmail account, or when I access Yahoo through Safari, nor is it happening on my mobile devices. It's specific to the combination of Yahoo/Firefox/Big Sur. Any idea how to fix or when Mozilla might address this bug in an update?

Many thanks, Erika

Yesterday I was using Firefox normally (browsing, Discord, etc.). Today when I opened it, it wouldn't load any page. If I type something in the adress bar it will auto-complete or show suggestions based on google, but when I hit enter, nothing happens. It doesn't even try to load anything. I also can't go into options. When I click on the options button, nothing happens. I am not running in any compatibility modes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't help. I am not using any add-ons. I have done several virus searches. Other browsers work fine. I'm running out of ideas now, that's why I'm doing this post.

Hello,

As the subject states, in the last few days I have been experiencing this very annoying phenomenon. I can start youtube, pick any video from recommended or my subscriptions, but aftery using the search bar to look up anything else, the whole browser freezes for at least 30 seconds but usually more. This started on maybe Sunday. Any tips? I have hardware acceleration disabled, but tried it both ways. I have cleared cache/history/cookies. Haven't tried a refresh yet and wouldn't want to if there's any other solution. Any tips to fix this?

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox as my preferred browser and have generally been very satisfied. There is one issue, however, that is driving me crazy and has forced me away from the Firefox browser multiple times to find a solution. It is this: When I occasionally perform searches on webpages that use dropdown menus, only the first 20 (or so) items in the list can be accessed. I can scroll, but the scrolling stops before reaching the bottom of the list. I've accessed these lists in other browsers and I know they are longer, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what is limiting these in Firefox. I am using an iMac Pro running the Catalina OS and Firefox version 86. Any help at all would be very appreciated! I've attached three images from the same webpage and dropdown menu. Two are using Firefox (the second is after I've scrolled down), and the third is using Safari (which shows the complete list). I literally cannot scroll past the bottom of Image #2, even though in Image #3, you can see that there are 10 additional lines of options in the textbox.

Thanks, Jim Margetts

I can't tell you how amazingly awesome the MAC extension is! Extremely helpful, especially for those of us who are juggling multiple logins on the same systems. There is one small issue I'm hoping to get help with.

Here is my specific scenario:

I have two different Microsoft DevOps accounts one at dev.azure.com/xyz and another at dev.azure.com/abc - they have two different Microsoft credentials, perfect for the MAC extension.

Except... the "Always Open in Container..." option seems to only be key'd to the domain name. I would love to be able to use more of the URL as you can see in my example. Is there any way to make this happen?

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter
