After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

Firefox says click here to update Shockwave, but that says Shockwave is disabled so you can't click that link. Please provide fix.

On the Add-ons Manager page/Plugins entry for Shockwave Flash appears the line "Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable and should be updated." This is followed by a link reading "Update Now". When I click this link, Firefox thinks for a while and then brings up a page that says (it's quite long, so this is a summary) Shockwave Flash versions have been disabled, so this page appears when you click on any of its links.

Since "Update Now" doesn't work, please send me an executable file that will fix this. Firefox says it is version 30.0.

I have Firefox 26.0 installed (though this has happened in previous versions). I have been through all the previous questions about this problem, but none match what I'm seeing. It's happening to others accessing my web site. I have a sample web page that I have up that presents the problem at http://flory.net/gabl/docx.htm.

When I click on the link on the above page (an office 2007 word document .docx), I get a page of gibberish as though it downloads the file as a text document. I've been through all the steps I could find in support to fix this to no avail, including resetting all defaults, etc. .doc works great, but I cannot find anything in the Options/Applications that will allow me to modify/add info to handle neither .doc nor .docx.

Using Firefox 66.0.2 (64 bit) on a Macbook pro OS 10.14.4. Firefox has been my default browser for years but this issue has appeared since the last update of Firefox. When Firefox is opened I get three tabs: one for my home page (Duckduck go), one for Ghostery settings, and one for Youtube HD settings. If I close Ghostery and YTHD the same thing will occur the next time Firefox is opened. At first I thought that the preferences to Ghostery and YTHD needed to be set (or reset), but these changes are not updated. I checked preferences of Ghostery and YTHD upon opening Firefox (when the additional tabs open) and preferences are not updated? Have no idea why this change is happening.

This error message came up after just a few minutes of FF running. It had just crashed and I rebooted. I'm using XP SP3 and I know I have more tabs than I probably should have opened. Problem is as I work down the line getting rid of them S M is not updating. This time the session that restored was from months ago. I have been bookmarking so all is not lost. If I disable S M ( This Just In: The session/window data is corrupted: undefined(undefined) ). will sessionstore take over? The only problem I had with sessionstore was it only saved one back-up. Tired, I made the mistake of thinking the New Tab that pops up when FF starts was an error, having set FF to open all the previous tabs, I quickly shut it down to save my tabs. knowing no better I killed my only chance of restoring my tabs when I came to my senses and reopened FF to find out if there was anyway to restore my tabs. Ever since I have been looking for a better solution. But it seems that Session Manager is not it. SessionSaver worked, but it's not around anymore. I have a one terabyte drive so memory should not be a problem. So. If I disable Session Manager will sessionstore take over? Otherwise How can I get off this merry go round? Thanks

There is right now literally no obvious way to bookmark a page. This is a serious flaw in the browser.

The Forum instructions say to restore it from "Customize." But it's not there, just the bookmark menu button, which does not allow you to bookmark a page. It then says restore defaults. That doesn't restore the star either. Does anyone know how to get it back once it's gone? It should not be so difficult that I can't figure it out.

I finally uninstalled Chrome and put in Firefox. Haven't used it in years.

On my screen most pages are "wide" -- so a horizontal scroll bar appears at the bottom of the page, and to see the very right hand side of the page, I have to scroll over.

I have tried the CTRL and - but all that does is shrink the text on the page. It doesn't make everything actually fit on the page horizontally. See the uploaded images of a question I found on this topic on this forum. Even though I've shrunk the font size down in the second one, I still see the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom. Even if I shrink it all the way to the minimum (which results in a tiny font I can't see), some of the page appears off-screen and has to be scrolled over to be seen.

I have tried for an hour to fix this and there doesn't seem to be any way. HELP!

Recently I installed Chrome, and made it my default browser. I had intended it to be temporary, but now I can't change it back to Firefox. If go to the general settings and click "Make Default," it doesn't change anything - still says "Firefox is not your default browser."

I used to go back and forth between Firefox and IE, no problem. Could Chrome be causing this?

Thanks.

I upgraded Firefox on my laptop to the 57 beta about a month and a half ago, and that went quite smoothly. But on my desktop PC, none of my add-ons/extensions appear in my toolbar, or in the "customize" menu to move to my toolbar. I've tried disabling/reenabling, uninstalling/reinstalling, and nothing has worked yet.

EDIT: Please note that these are COMPATIBLE and ENABLED add-ons. I am well aware of the new WebExtensions requirement and that most of my old add-ons will not work. These incompatible add-ons are currently DISABLED and are not related to my problem.

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP

thanks ...

This is the same for my Plugins and Themes.

One of my customers run an web application in Firefox and they want their users to just be able to use Firefox for that particular site. They run Firefox 42 today and we have managed to remove all the "bars" using the UserChrome.css folder. We have also applied some custom settings using the .cfg file. However, now they want to upgrade to Firefox 48 and I tried the same solution but it doesn´t work. For some reason UserChrome.css doesnt get copied to the profiles folder. If I manually copy it, it works.

In Firefox 42 the UserChrome.css is located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile\Chrome

Is there any changes done to the folder structure in Firefox 48? Do you have any suggestions how I can solve this?
