Hi, I'm trying to access to audio and video website like Spotify (Audio) and DisneyPlus (Audio + Video) but a yellow bar on top inform me to try later because necessary component for audio and video is installing.

This issue is present since different day, I tried to reinstall, reset Firefox but the issue persist. Windows 10 2004, Firefox 78.02.

Why no issue with the browser and Firefox should show a banner and ask to try later where the situation is the same? Why Firefox is not allowing me to watch video and to listen audio now?

I hate Firefox when do this... it's not intelligent.

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

So Firefox did an update. Every time I tried to click on a link in my email, it would open a new window instead of a new tab in my currently opened window. It did not have any of my bookmarks or passwords either. This morning, I unpinned Firefox and went and found the program and re-pinned it to my task bar. Now I have the new version that does not have any of my bookmarks or log ins. Does anyone know how to set my PC back to fix this? I can't lost my bookmarks or my passwords.

A lot of folks are having issues with the new URL bar.

My biggest issue with the new URL is the way that URL bar text turns light blue rather than to normal way that selected text is shown, in negative (white on blue), because I often want to select part of the URL and the light blue makes it difficult to see what I have selected. I am 55 and my eyesight is not what it used to be.

jscher2000 kindly recommended adding the following to userchrome.css here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283831?page=3#answer-1331668 as follows

  1. urlbar {
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight: Highlight;
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight-text: HighlightText;

}

But this css does not seem to work for me.

I have not touched the Firefox theme, so I guess I am using the default theme, but I have added the multi-row tabs css from MrOtherGuy https://github.com/MrOtherGuy/firefox-csshacks/tree/master/chrome/multi-row_tabs.css but the multi-row tab css does not seem to mention "toolbar" so I can't see that they would get in each other's way.

I would also like to turn off the automatic selection of the whole url but that may not be possible.

Hello.

Is there a way to sync only specific bookmark folders between my PC's and phones? I love the Sync feature in Firefox. But I have many bookmark folders on one PC that I don't want transferred to my other PC nor to my phone. If Mozilla doesn't allow folder-specific syncing, is there an add-on feature that can accomplish this?

Windows and/or Firefox updated recently and something odd is happening. If I open Firefox from my desktop I can access my bookmarks, no problem. If I read my emails in Windows Live Mail and click on a link from an email to a website, the web page opens but I cannot access my bookmarks from this window. They just aren't there. I have to go and open Firefox from the desktop or from the icon in the menu bar.

Anyone have an idea what happened and how to fix?

I am setting up a new desktop and want to copy my Firefox profile from one Linux desktop to another. In the past I have just used sync and then had to go thru the process of making all the config adjustments and tweaking other settings that are not part of sync. I just copied over my Thunderbird profile and it was a perfect copy and paste. Unfortunately I have tried twice with FF and its not working. Keep getting the message that the profile being copied in is from an older version. That's not true however the one being copied in is from 77.0.1 and the new desktop being pasted into is 71.0. Any idea what I am doing wrong that's an easy fix? Thanks.

On launching Firefox, none of the extensions work. uBlock Origin does nothing, LastPass prompts me to acknowledge their privacy policy then login, Firefox logs out of my user account, the containers tab does nothing (although this might be related to not being logged in). These are the only services I use. Everything works if I take the time to set them back up (except uBlock Origin).

Strangely enough, reddit.com will not load, and this is the only website I have had problems with. When prompted, the address bar ignores it, not even trying to load the site, completely blank page without an error.

Everything works perfectly fine (including uBlock Origin) in private browsing mode.

This started happening a few days ago. Since then I have done a clean install of windows (which was needed anyways) but to no avail. It is probably something stupid I managed to mess up in Firefox, although I would have no idea what that would be as I haven't changed anything advanced since the clean install.

I am completely dumb-founded. Any help would be appreciated.

I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.

The whole system was only set up recently, so I'm not sure if the issue has been happening since Firefox was installed, but it is possible.

I've narrowed it down to MP4s being the issue, which as the relevant help articles state should be decoded by the OS. No problems watching the videos in Microsoft Edge for example.

Console gives:

   HTTP "Content-Type" of "video/mp4" is not supported [...]
   Cannot play media. No decoders for requested formats: video/mp4

or

   Specified "type" attribute of "video/mp4" is not supported

etc.

Same result when disabling all addons. Windows Media Player etc. installed and working.

Only the first (MPEG) video on the following test page doesn't work for example: https://tekeye.uk/html/html5-video-test-page

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
