To all Firefox gurus:

RE: Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have Firefox 78.10.0esr (64-bit) with PLug-in Widevine Content Decryption Module 4.10.2209.1

Have (Late-2012) Mac Mini with Mac OSX 10.9.5 (A MUST HAVE, due to it being the last version that is compatible with Nikon and other software no longer supported)

So, upgrading Mac Operating System is not an option.

And, upgrading Firefox does not seem to be an option, because 78.10.0esr is the last compatible version with the Mac 10.9.5 operating system.

The issue I am having is when I go to read the online edition of the newspaper. a long thin yellow bar appears at the top of the screen with "The Widevine Cdm has crashed. (Learn More)" and further down on the page it shows, "Video Player Error Sorry, there has been a technical error with this video stream." with an error code that relates to "Digital Rights Management" . . . It is checked in Preferences > General.

So, not sure what the problem is.

This has occurred within the past two weeks ONLY.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you, in advance.

With Gmail open in Firefox browser, when I start typing the name of the addressee in the TO field, many addressees will not autocomplete, even though they are properly saved in my Gmail contacts list. I looked for common solution for this ... and found: use different browser. I did, and MS Edge works just fine. Is there a setting in Firefox that will fix this?

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.

Netflix keeps crashing the minute I open it on Firefox due to the Widevine plugin. This has been happening ever since Widevine's latest update about a week ago. I've since learned that their latest update doesn't support MAC OS X 10.9.5, which is what I have. The recommendation on this forum was to install an older version of Widevine. I've looked everywhere and I haven't been able to find out how to do that or where to even find an older version. Widevine's website is not helpful.

Hoping you can help!

When I open firefox there is a blank page, which is normal. However, when I analyse the network traffic with wireshark I notice there are automatic connections to several websites. Including reddit.com, twitter.com, facebook.com, youtube.com, wikipedia.org, example.org, ipv4only.arpa and also to some mozilla domains. Is this normal behavior or should I be worried ? Also, is there a way to disable this if this is normal behavior ?

Hello

Recently I chaged firefox font color and (font)background color; font color near white, (font)background color near black. From that time Youtube in_screen control button's (play/pause/sound/setting/full screen) background color changed to near white (default translucent) so the buttons became barely distinguishable.

I changed font/background color to the original, installed themes and addons but failed to set the buttons back to the original color.

Slidebar color changed to (font)background color.

I have eyes problem and some internet sites don't allow the dark mode, So I had to try browser color code editing for my eyes.

Could someone please tell me how to reverse the change or change the button's background color translucent?

I don't want to switch my browser to Chrome. I do want to upload music files to u tube music for my library there. Process is to open the u tube music library file and click on uploads and drag files from windows onto the page and it will upload. My problem is when I do this, the file I drag over shows a red circle with a line through it and will not upload to u tube music. It is the correct file type MP3. Is there a setting within firefox that I can change that could be preventing me from doing this? thanks. brian

Perchè su Mozilla Firefox non posso personalizzare tutta la pagina iniziale con uno sfondo immagine dal mio archivio personale? Posso saperlo? Non è possibile che l'intera pagina iniziale rimanga vuota e bianca senza nessuna immagine e come sfondo voi utilizzate solo la parte in alto e con i temi stabiliti solo da voi. Non vi sentite degli ipocriti? Grazie..Alessandro Bertoli Why can't I customize the whole start page with an image background from my personal archive on Mozilla Firefox? Can I know? It is not possible that the entire home page remains empty and white without any image and as a background you use only the top part and with the themes established only by you. Don't you feel like hypocrites? Thanks .. Alessandro Bertoli

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

I would suggest adapting the Firefox icon to the new Big Sur design. Unfortunately, among the most common applications, Firefox is the only one that has still kept the old design (which makes Firefox seem like something out of date and not very obsolete in appearance, while in reality it is a concentrate of care and progress).

The user observes the evolution of an app from the thick icon design, so I can't explain how Firefox can still own its design (which unfortunately doesn't align with the dock). On iOS / iPadOS you have the appropriate icon, why not transfer it directly to macOS Big Sur at this point (thus unifying the interface itself)?

Nothing to say about the rest, you are fabulous and the best (I just suggest a hint of transparency in the panel bar).

With regard

When picture-in-picture is invoked, it opens video small window. In the past it was a super tiny window, then after some updates it increased in size, then it went small again. The proportions of the window are also useless for most YT vids.

Basically, every time I use picture-in-picture I have to resize it. This is tirin. Is there a way to customize the start size of it like:

- set start size ...x... - remember the last size - auto-size based on the video proportions, set to 1/4 or 1/5 or 1/3, etc.

and so on.

Currently this picture in picture is more annoying then helpful because it require constant manipulation of the picture size. Annoying as hell.
