I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

Videos on Twitter don't play, "The message This browser does not support video playback." appears on the center of a screenshot of the video. Twitter Videos play normally on Chrome. YouTube videos play normally on Firefox.

I have the latest version of Firefox and all the plugins are up to date (Java, Flash Player etc). I have experimented changing Hardware Acceleration Where Available box, the media.windows-media-foundation.enabled attribute, clearing the caches, opening in safe mode, nothing makes the videos play.


Is there anyone who has had the same problem and managed to solve it. Thank you.

On two different profiles, the Customize option simply isn't working. I see three different places on the GUI to click on Customize, and none works. Nothing happens when I click on them, beyond the letters "Customize" appearing at the top of a tab.

After appearing earlier this evening, the LastPass icon is also failing to appear on both profiles.

During the last 24 hours I have been unable to run, troubleshoot, or fix this repeated crashing issue with my Firefox browser following extended use of it for several hours uninterrupted -- despite several shut downs and restarts of my Acer Aspire laptop. Every time I try to open Firefox I immediately get the crash report dialogue box and have been unable to open the browser in safe mode or resolve the issue by uninstalling/reinstalling the program. I have taken the precaution of saving the entire Firefox folder containing both the Crash Reports folder, profiles configuration settings, and Profiles (x81friy0.default) folder itself in hopes of eventually restoring as much of the profile to its previous state as possible. Thank you for your assistance.

i turned on Firefox today and found out that it's showing a new session instead of my previous session. which happened right after the update. then after i finished using my PC for the day i chose the option to restore previous sessions instead of showing homepage(i don't have one) then i closed and re-opened Firefox. still showed me a new session.

and i also need to mention got one of those hijacker junkwares which seems like i caught before or after the update (i followed online instructions to remove it) but removing it did not solve this problem.


i'm not sure which one is the reason for the problem. so i would be grateful for any kind of help :)

I hope something can help me, because I don’t’ know what to do.

I check my hotmail account with Firefox, never had any trouble. But, after UI changed with hotmail account a month or two back, I’ve been having trouble signing it with Firefox, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. During this time, sometimes it would let me in and sometimes it won’t let me check at all.

I just keep getting this error: "Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later."

  • BTW: Server status for hotmail is always 'green, no problems detected' when I get this error, so that makes me more confused on what's going on.*

That’s in Firefox, I then tried Firefox in safe mode (add-ons disabled) still same error.

I then tried restarting my PC, clearing catch/cookies, nothing seamed to matter and I have latest version of Firefox.

But, oddly (or not) when I try to sign in with IE, it logs me in just fine.

  • I also tried Chrome, I can log into my hotmail account just fine also.*

Anyone else having trouble with there hotmail account + Firefox?


I haven’t added/removed any programs for a while, just updated flash player/adobe/etc, you know, the usual stuff.

All screenshots I took are attached, details of when are in file name.

  • add images feature on creating page, is not working for me, had to do this way, sorry*

I'm using latest version of Firefox v40.03 on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, no other sites I have this trouble, can someone please help me?

I did send a question to the tech people at Microsoft, but only got 3 replies from them: 1 - ‘Thank you for contacting us', 2 - ‘Can you install/run this program FiddlerCap and send us the results?’ 3 - ‘We are going to send you over to this other department instead, you’ll hear from them soon…'

That was ~5 days ago. Nothing so far from them.

  • I don’t’ know what FiddlerCap was, I think it’s something to test the https or something, but got these odd errors when running it*

I really love Firefox have been a fan since v3 (I think, long ago), if anyone has any idea please tell me, if you need any info or something , ask and I will get it!

I don’t know if it’s related but I also got once or twice, an odd secure connection error, but I only got it a few times, so I don’t know if it’s related to this or not.

Error I got: “…Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to sc.imp.live.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem…”

I tried changing the line “security.tls.version.fallback-limit” to 1 (originally was 3) instead, but restart PC/clear cookies, restart Firefox, nothing, no error, but still no hotmail access with Firefox.

for the past few weeks Firefox has been really hard to Copy & Paste text from one page to another, then editing the text is impossible - I can paste lines of text but only one goes in the box - then when I try to edit or manipulate the text it just screws up :/

It does not matter if I use context menus or Keyboard commands to copy & paste (CTRL C& V)

I've been using Firefox for about 10 years and NEVER had this issue - I have tried the stuff in ABOUT:CONFIG CONTEXT and even in SAFE MODE the issue exists :/

I tried to screen record the fault but that's pointless because you cant see that my key presses are being totally ignored in the text box - all you would hear is me swearing the computer

Anyone else having this issue?

WTH is happening

I don't want to switch browsers as all my devices sync but this is getting really bad and makes working on my business blog virtually impossible.

Been in I.T. for 28 years and never seen anything like this before!

Hello,

Everything was running completely fine in Firefox and then all of a sudden it simply stopped displaying .swf files. Where they should be is simply blank. On websites with a background I can see the background through where the .swf file should be. This includes opening locally saved files as well as every website with a .swf file that's supposed to play.

I do mean suddenly quite literally, as it was right in the middle of a browsing session. I changed nothing, just...one minute they were working fine, the next they completely halted. It's clear the program is recognizing that something's supposed to be there, as Adblock pops up a little "Block" tab over where the file should be, but again, that space is completely blank. It's not black, it's transparent.

I've completely uninstalled Shockwave and reinstalled it from scratch, and "updated" it three times now, all to no effect.

Hello,

I am having some issues using any google related websites. Sometimes when I try to perform a search on google, or load a video on youtube, it simply wont load anything. At first I tought I had internet issues, but I dont not. As soon as Firefox wont load Youtube or perform a search on google, if I try this at Chrome I can do it with no problems. So the problem is in Firefox, since at Chrome and IE there are no issues at all.

I have all my plugins updated on Firefox. Anyone could help me regarding this issue?

The mail support.mozilla.org page comes up blank in Firefox. If I use Chrome, it will display!!! In fact, in order to register with Mozilla support to ask this question, I had to use the Chrome browser! Unfortunately, the same is true for many sites with the green lock on the address. They will not display in Firefox but will in Chrome. As FF is my default browser, this is extremely annoying and has only started with the latest versions of the browser. Is there a fix for this problem? Thank you.

Just installed firefox on a new computer and imported all my bookmarks from chrome. Created a mozilla account to setup sync.

My work computer already had mozilla on it, so I made sure it was updated to 40.0.3, then logged into sync. I got the little bubble message that said that Sync was enabled and would begin shortly, however nothing is syncing. I've verified the settings in my account to make sure that all boxes for sync are checked, and even tried uninstalling and re-install firefox on the work computer. Still no sync. Additionally, I tried going to "history>tabs from other devices", but this opens up a page with nothing on it.

I'm not sure if there is a problem with the sync settings themselves, or if everything is correct, but it just won't begin the sync process.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

For the past month I've stopped being able to download the PDF file for my monthly bank statements. I've exchanged multiple e-mails with my bank's Online Banking technical support, but no one there is using Firefox 40; only IE, which Avast broke for me a couple of years ago and has been non-functioning ever since.

One thing I wanted to try is to prevent Firefox from opening the PDF file into its own browser window. I just want to download the file, not view it in the browser (which is failing to happen anyway). Is there anything in about:config that I could tweak to prevent Firefox from firing up its own PDF internal viewer? What may be complicating matters is that I refuse to use Adobe as my PDF reader. BLOATWARE. Instead I use Foxit Reader, which is extremely fast, small, has never failed me in the past and continues to work perfectly when I download PDF files from all other web sites.

One more thing. When Firefox is downloading the file in question the download proceeds quite rapidly, then abruptly stops. The error message that pops up is as follows:

"Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

• The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

• Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

One final thing: I am on a dial-up connection. But since the download appears to proceed quite rapidly (takes less than twenty seconds before it suddenly quits on me), then I rather doubt my slow connection speed could be causing the problem.


Thanks in advance for any assistance with this problem.
