hello, lately i have problems with any kind of VR content with firefox. A-Painter doesnt work and i cant play any VR video

looking a bit around on the internet and trying to change VR related settings in about:config gives me 3 unsatisfying results (trying to play a VR video) : - either nothing happens, the video starts playing normaly in 2d mode and when i press the VR icon the videos pauses but doesnt switch to Vr mode - it starts steamVR for no reasons (which doing the same action didnt start steamvr before, instead the video would just play in VR) but then nothing more happens, juts steamvr is open but the video dont play - i get an error message saying i need a webVr compatible browser

i have tried tweaking nearly every VR releated setting in about:config to a point where i dont remember what all the original configs where but i cant simply reset my prefs.js file as this would mess up every other tweaks i have made in my config. trying to play the same video works just fine in MS edge

no hardware changes have been made to my pc and i didnt install any new addon to firefox. i hadnt used my VR headset for some weeks so i dont know exactly since which firefox update the issue started. Occulus software is up to date as my other drivers (i didnt update any driver lately neither) are actually up to date or the same as they where when everything worked. i have also tried with a fresh FF nightly install without succes (in nightly i didnt change anything in about:config)

Hello, Recently, I changed from Chrome to FireFox. I have a website where I have to join to meetings with my client. When I click on the scheduled meeting, it opens zoom launch meeting page and launches meetings usually (with chrome) I mean the zoom launch meeting (as attached in image). In FireFox, I don't find the meeting getting launched. The launch meeting page comes up, asks me if it can use zoom app. I give Yes and then the thing happens is it opens the Zoom app. It does not launch the meeting. Any suggestion you think that will help, please post it as a reply.

Thank you in advance!!

I am using Windows 10 on a desktop computer with all current updates, including all drivers using Driver Booster 9. It occasionally crashes - usually blue screen error video TDR failure, ndlddmkm.sys.

After one crash yesterday, no saved login information came up on Firefox - no user ID or password.

In C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\z9j81sb8.default there were seven corrupt logins files, logins.json.corrupt and logins.json-1.corrupt to logins.json-6.corrupt, the last of these with a date modified showing the day of that crash, i.e. yesterday's date. Renaming this to the logins.json didn't restore any logins when Firefox restarted. I tried a couple of others too, and the logins.json from my laptop. None gave me my logins back.

There is no folder on my Desktop.

This has been VERY inconvenient. I have been relying on Firefox, and know only a some passwords. Thank goodness I always ignored Firefox's offer to generate a password for me.

I have been trying to print a PDF to my HP 7800 series printer from Firefox, but I can't get the PDF to print. The PDF appears briefly in my printer queue, then disappears.

I can print regular webpages just fine, and I can print the PDF using Acrobat. But printing from Firefox's print dialog or the system dialog doesn't work. Locally-saved PDFs, as well as those on a web server, don't print either.

I've tried:

Hi can somebody help me please? Sitting here on Christmas Eve at work trying to fix Firefox.

In a nutshell I have a really really annoying bug with Firefox which is going to cause me to pull all my hair out.

In the past the program used to check for updates and it used to work fine during this procedure.

Lately though I've been experiencing a really strange bug.

Whenever Firefox checks for updates the browser then cannot load a single webpage or anything while it is checking. Sometimes the checks can take around 3-5 minutes to complete.

Any videos or streams come to an eventual halt.

I have tried tweak a few settings in about:config such as app.update.interval

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the browser - No change. This still happens usually about 5-8 times a day.

This computer is used for medical emergencies for our clients. We need a full functioning browser. I thought Firefox was that browser but I am beginning to think about installing something else now.

In these situations lives could be put at risk and I want to remedy this problem now before the new year. I imagine we will have a lot of patients coming in. I need to quickly submit forms at times and I really need a stable browser.

a) Can I turn off updates? I would prefer to check manually for updates once a week or so via Help -> About b) Can I reduce the frequency of the checks for updates? c) Is this going to be a normal feature for Firefox from now on?

Plus (+) Key not working as shortcut

Hi,

I have noticed that if I want to use the +key (plus key) as a shortcut, the following commands don't work:

I'm using the latest Firefox version (91.5.0esr/64-bit) on a MacBook Pro 2021 14" (Mac OS 12.1) on a German keyboard. The German part is important, because if I switch my system language to English and correctly guess where the +key would be positioned, the commands work.

Most importantly, this only happens on Firefox. If I use the same commands on Safari, or Google Chrome, it works perfectly fine. So this must be a Firefox issue.

I would really appreciate it if there was a solution for this. I know this has been an issue for a longer time because I had the same problem on my last MacBook Pro (13", 2011, High Sierra).

Last but not least Firefox is great, and it is by far my favorite browser. So if there is any solution for this I would be most grateful (and if the solution somehow could be automatically included in all future Firefox updates even better!)

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards, M

PS: I apologize if this was worded awkwardly. English is not my first language.

В русском языке нет слова "Выши", надо написать слово "Ваши". Кто может исправить опечатку? Сайт POCKET принимает мои письма за спам!!! Мне надоело.

Ответ мне не обязателен, хотя и будет интересно узнать, как удалось победить разработчика-создателя ошибки. Мне надо, чтобы к русскому языку относились с должным уважением и не коверкали слова. Ведь в современных редакторах текста так просто исправить и более сложные ситуации!!!

When I do front-end development, the framework I used is antd pro(Based on React). After the webpack packing the project, the developing page will be automatically reloaded(May be called HMR, Hot Module Replacement). But after the page reloaded, the CSS of the page is not rendered, It also need refresh the page by F5. Thus, HMR does not work correctly on Firefox, but it can work on other browsers like Edge, Chrome

Some time ago, my colour scheme in Firefox changed. I spent hours getting it back to what I wanted. Recently, following a PC restart it happened again, now I can't recover my original Theme. Worse, 2 website's, ASDA & Tesco have changed colour to purple making it very difficult for my wife to read. It makes no difference to these websites whichever theme I set. When I open the same websites on Google Chrome, they appear normally. I have used Firefox for many years but now it gets ever more complicated making it more difficult to use. Often, if I need to update anything financial with suppliers, it fails to do so, then I have to switch to Google Chrome which works without any problems.

PS I tried to add images both by word doc. & PDF but clicking the 'Browse' button below could not find them in my explorer, they are there.

AFTER I ENTER MY LOGIN PASSWORD TO GET INTO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL, I AM RE-DIRECTED TO A WINDOW THAT ASKS IF I WANT TO STAY SIGNED IN (KEEP ME SIGNED IN). THE 2 CHOICES AVAILABLE ARE "NO" AND "DON'T SHOW THIS WINDOW AGAIN". NEITHER OF THESE 2 BUTTONS WORK AS I KEEP GETTING THEM EVERY TIME I LOG INTO MY EMAIL.
ONE THING I HAVE NOTED IS THAT IF I GO BACK 1 PAGE FROM THE "KMSI" PAGE, THIS OFTEN TAKES ME TO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL INBOX. THIS MAKES ME THINK THAT I AM BEING RE-DIRECTED TO THE "KMSI" PAGE! AS STATED EARLIER MS SAYS THIS IS A FIREFOX PROBLEM BECAUSE WHEN I LOG IN USING EDGE, THE BUTTONS WORK AND THE "KMSI" WINDOW DOESN'T RE-APPEAR!

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON/OFF SINCE 11/18 AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET MICROSOFT TO FIX THE PROBLEM SINCE THEN. ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! SINCERELY, D
