I have been using Simple Tab Groups (STG) for a long time now. I am curious if putting tabs into groups saves any resources, i.e. is only the open group using resources (CUP/RAM), or is STG purely organizational in that all the tabs still use the same amount of resources as if they weren't grouped? If it is the latter, do you know of an add-on that would save resources? Thanks

Hello, can you add better support playback on .mp4 videos? Seems with Firefox it's a hit-and-miss with some .mp4 videos that will play and some that will just show "No video with supported format and MIME type found".

All other browsers will play .mp4 videos without an issue but Firefox won't.

If you can provide better .mp4 playback support that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Here's one of those videos for an example: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Fv6SdftiCXeYPQOdF17H2JNpwjMu9P7q


Pretty much a URL string like example.com/videosample.mp4

Thanks guys for screwing up my day with your latest update. I used to be able to download a .pdf and opening it in my ,pdf reader. I NEED to do this for tax reconciliation purposes. Now your crappy program has decided to open .pdfs in itself and I cant get a downloaded copy any more. What the hell was the programmer thinking? Yes I have gone to Applications and checked that it is set to my .pdf reader. Please fix this before I get fined by the tax office.

Video Content (Twitter/X, Youtube, Previews) Stop Working

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise version on my desktop.

The same video on Facebook plays perfectly on Chrome but the sound is muted when it is played on Firefox. It happens only recently.

Is there some control features that I should turn on or turn off somewhere so that I can continue to use Facebook a usual on my Desk top.

On our online application we are facing with some strange behavior for a small percentage of our firefox users (<1%).

When doing oauth2 authorization, after generation of the authentication token we redirect to another platform but we are detecting that for a small percentage of Firefox the cookie (my_auth_cookie) with the auth token is not present.



GET: https://www.mywebsite.com/application/login Response:

new location https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect


set-cookie: my_auth_cookie expires=Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT; domain=.mywebsite.com; path=/; secure; samesite=lax; httponly


      2. GET https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect
          Set-cookie: mycookie: value
          Host: www.mywebsite.com


In cookie tab I see my_auth_cookie (value: xxxx, domain: .mywebsite.com, expires: Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT, httponly: checked, secure: checked,SameSite: Lax, partitionkey: empty, Priority: medium



I’ve tried to replicate but without success (with multiple extensions, including multi-account containers), with multiple configurations of Total Cookie Protection.

Again, this only seems to be happening to a very limited number of firefox users but for these, it happens 100% of the time. We see it occurring for versions 119 and 120 but now and then for older versions.

Feedback reports no extensions&addons.


Any ideas on what we could be dealing with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Videos can't be played at higher playback speed Bug

On firefox, I cant play videos at higher playback speed or it'll only play audio or video will endlessly buffer. Using user-agent spoofer and changing to chrome makes it a little less worse but still the problem sustains. On Brave, the video doesnt have any effect of higher playback speed rather it'll make the video buffer and have very strong red contrast.

I have been having with YouTube for a couple of days. It asks to turn off ad blockers. I have done so and it still requests to turn ad blockers and still won't allow viewing. YouTube works on other browsers.

I am sure YouTube is playing games but can you help?

I see a similar question on the forums from March 2021, but I'm having this problem now: when I go into icloud.com, it keeps asking for authentication - i.e. it presents a 6-digit code which goes to my phone/ipad, and I have to put it into the browser. After that, I'm prompted "Do you want to Trust this browser" to which I ALWAYS say "Yes", but it doesn't seem to work; the next day, if I try icloud again, it does it all over, like the "Trust" option is ignored. In settings, "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked, Clicking "Manage Data" shows that cookies for icloud.com are saved. I've just added icloud.com into Exceptions to Allow to use cookies/site data, though I wouldn't think I'd NEED that if I'm never deleting them. I tried this with Chrome, and the Trust DID work; I can sign in with that browser and not have to put in the code.

What's up with that?

Every time I enter a new password at https://secure.newegg.com/identity/signin, I click on Save but the browser does not save it! When I try to log in, Firefox always inserts the previous password that was saved. I have Reset the password twice on the website and have mentioned it to Newegg at least twice now and so far, I have not been able to resolve this problem.

This only occurs with the Newegg website. Why is this?

This is occurring on a computer running Windows 10 Pro version 22H2, Build 19045.3693

I request that this be resolved soon.

Thanks,

Wayne Carpenter
