Hello Unfortunately, the Pinterest browser button in Firefox does not work since a few days, - instead the Pinterest message window appears in the upper right corner of the screen saying „you are not logged in", plus a red login button (see screenshot added) On the Pinterest page, however, I then see every time that I am very well logged in. Tried several things, but no lasting success: - clicking on the red login link provided by the browser button message. Then a login window appears, but before I can enter name and password, it disappears again and I end up (already logged in) on my Pinterest home feed page. I still can't get the pin saved, though. This can't be because I'm logged in at Google at the same time (- I also logged out of Google and tried again, same result). - I logged out on the Pinterest page and then tried again via the window popping up in Firefox when I click the Pinterest-browser-button. Doesn't make any difference. - restarted Firefox, - doesn't help either. - logged out on Pinterest, deleted the Pinterest addon in Firefox and reinstalled it. Then logged in on Pinterest via the button window that popped up again in Firefox (saying "You are not logged in") when I try to pin something. That looked like it works and the pin got saved. However, the next time Firefox is opened or the next try touse the button, it's back to "You are not logged in" again (- and all the rest described above). Looks for me like coming with the last Firefox update two days before.... So what to do now? please fix that, it's very frustrating! best, Gundula from Germany

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

"Sorry, we're having trouble playing this video." Video and GIFs on Facebook

I know this is an old issue. I'm getting it now, FF 90.0.2 64-bit, Windows 10 Pro N, Build 19041.vb_release.191206-1406. System updated. Not very often it starts playing for a fraction of a second. Videos and GIFs everywhere else (as far as places I normally go) plays as it should. Troubleshoot mode didn't solve it; hardware acceleration tweak neither. No crash logs.

Tried on the Edge and everything is fine.

Question: does the suggested "fix" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows embraces this issue as well? If so, sorry, but might be time to change browsers. The reason I'm using Windows 10 PRO ->N<- is exactly not to have to remove Windows Media Player and related "bloat" from my system. This isn't one of those crybaby threats I hate to read: it's a necessity.

I must ask: why on Edge, on the same machine, the same problem doesn't exist as in Firefox.

Suggestion for mentioned article: might be helpful point users (also) to the right place of The Media Feature Pack for N and KN versions of Windows 10, on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

Thanks

Hi! When I adjust a volume (Ej. 30%) elsewhere, when change the focus to Firefox browser, the volume automatically raised to 100% no matter if the page or pages are in blank or with content. And when I change to other application, the volume is back to original state (in this case 30%). Yes, it changes system volume, not the app volume. Searched all over internet and couldn't find solution.

Tried: - Deactivate all sound enhancement. - Deactivate sound lowering in call. - Change sound card (realtek to Nvidia) - Change output (back panel, front panel) - Updated drivers - Unplugged periphericals - Deactivate Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface - Changed media.default_volume in about:config Nothing works

This only happen with Firefox and Chrome browsers. Microsoft edge, games and other multimedia apps has not problem.

I am using AMD Ryzen 5600X Asus TUF b550m 16GB RAM

Firefox 90.0.2 Windows 10, Version 20H2, Build 19042.1110

Hope we could find a solution. This is very annoying when using a headset. Regards

Hi there. When watching twitch or youtube on one screen everything is just fine. I do have 2 monitors, and sometimes i watch 2 twitch streamers at the same time. or one with youtube and one with twitch. Everything have been working just fine, but for maybe 2 weeks ago, the UI or stuff around the video\stream im watching is flickering. This only happens when watching 2 videos at same time. It flickers on both. The video itself is just fine, but everything around is flickering, like chat on twitch, or the recommended videos on the rightside of youtube video window. Turning Safe mode on and it stops. uninstalling all addons, and the problem is still there. And still work fine in Safe mode. Havent done any changes anywhere with firefox, and only use 2 addons. And if im watching 2 videos and scrolls down and up on one of the screens, it flickers even more. Hardware Acc is off.

I am on MacOS Mojave (10.14.6). I have a few different installations of Firefox for different purposes and I'd like them each to display the custom name I've given them by renaming their filename (e.g. changing Firefox.app to something like YouTubeViewer.app). This causes the installation of Firefox to show in my app switcher and elsewhere in the OS as "YouTubeViewer", however when I run YouTubeViewer.app, Firefox still displays "Firefox" in the upper left-hand corner as the application name.

I tried editing the .plist file for each installation to change the value for key CFBundleName from "Firefox" to "YouTubeViewer", but that causes that installation of Firefox to no longer run. I believe this is due to the code-signing and pre-run validation done by the OS.

So, is there any way to get the custom name to display or is just not possible?

Since my firefox browser updated yesterday with the July 19, 2021 update, some web pages are not displaying properly. For example, I use Yahoo mail, and when I click on an email, most of the content is not showing, including the sender's message. Other frequently used websites are similarly affected.

This same problem occurred after another recent firefox update, and it was eventually fixed when I "checked for updates".

I'm hoping this bug is widespread enough that the Mozilla team will be providing a further update that fixes this.

Meanwhile, if anyone has an idea, I'll listen!

Hi everyone.

There's a behavior with the "search suggestions" feature in the address bar that works differently than I'd expect. I show a real example below:

1 - I did a search with the phrase "mercado livre" using the address bar suggestions 2 - I visited the website www.mercadolivre.com.br 3 - I close the window and open I new one 3 - When I start typing the word "mer" with the intention of opening the site again, the address bar suggests as the first option the URL "https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=market +free". This is the URL of the search done in step 1. You can see thin in the image attached.

What I really hope is that in step 3, it lists the URL "www.mercadolivre.com.br" (my history), and below that, the other search suggestions. It doesn't make sense to me to list the full Google search url as a suggestion, as in step 3.

Is there any way to hide or disable this kind of suggestion? Note that I don't want to disable all suggestions from previously visited sites, just the old searches´ full URL types from step 3.

Thanks.

I started Firefox yesterday and saw a message about not having been on for some time - which rang alarm bells for a daily user! Having time today to investigate, it seems that it's lost 6 months of history and bookmark changes (I'm only offered January or today!)

The print functionality has changed a lot in the latest versions of Firefox and is causing me problems so I wonder if there are settings or add-ons which I've missed which would help.

Specifically:

1) The preview is no longer full screen. This makes it difficult to adjust a view, of say a map, so that the area printed is precisely what is wanted. The full screen preview in older versions of Firefox made this very easy. Is there any way of getting a full screen print preview page?

2) Previously it was possible to set custom headers and footers on a printed page. This was ideal for labelling printouts is a descriptive way, so useful for future reference, and enabled the removal of unwanted information. In the present version of Firefox all I seem to be able to do is switch printing of default headers/footers on and off. Is there a way of customising headers and footers that I've missed?

Thanks

I was able to change the font in Ctrl J by changing my system font (windows 10, Firefox font used to automatically follow it). However after the latest Firefox update, that no longer works for Firefox (my system font is still OK). Please help me change the Libabry font again! The default font (probably SegoeUI) is very hard to read on my computer, it's blurry and comes in light gray.

Note: I'm not talking about the website font (it's fine and can be changed in Firefox settings). The library font size is fine too, only the font itself is too hard to read.

Note2: I tried changing my system font to other random fonts (using the registry), restarting my computer in between etc. That still works, but Firefox won't follow.

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.
