Hello, this appears to be a Firefox-exclusive problem as any other browser used will fix the issues listed below. However, when I am using Firefox, the following happens:

  • I am unable to like or retweet anything, and cannot follow any accounts. Attempting to do so resets them if I refresh or click off the tab.
  • Notifications do not go away even when I view them
  • Any tweets I have cannot be deleted
  • Any info on my profile cannot be changed
  • I cannot log out

I've tried multiple ways to fix this, including clearing my cache, running in Safe Mode, and removing my saved login. None of these have worked, unfortunately. I've reached out to Twitter Support, but soon realized I wouldn't hear back about specific problems at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Hello; There has many issues with Twitter on Firefox. i) Sometimes it simply refuses to run; ii) Sometimes it takes very long minutes to load if at all; ii) Sometimes it quits working after a while and I need to stop Firefox and restart or even run it in Edge before being able to run it again on Firefox. Twitter is the only program that does that, as far as I can tell. Thanks for your help. Frenchy

Hi, I've got a problem with sound with few websites. I'm using 2 sound devices, my headset and my 2nd TV screen which have speakers. For example I got problem with twitter and google translator. When I try to play a sound from both of these sites when I'm using my headset as my default sound output, it doesn't work, there is no sound at all but when I change to my TV screen it plays these sounds. I have no problem with youtube, netlfix or other steaming platforms. I've just noticed that problem with these 2 websites, I don't know about other websites. Oh, and on 9gag I got similar problem but not every video is without sound, some of them has a sound and some of them hasn't. My device is set to default as in attached image.

Firefox 76.0.1 not playing embedded Twitter videos

On the entertainment media site Buzzfeed, clicking on a post of an embedded Twitter video gives me a blank white image. No error message like "Unable to play the file". I did a clear history, cache & cookies and refreshed Firefox. I ran the apt update for Ubunto. It had been operating smoothly in the past. If I go to Twitter, it plays. It just goes blank when I click on the video embedded in the post.

Thank you for any assistance.

Twitter emoji cause consistent unpredictable behavior when posting

I've updated to the latest version of Firefox (75.0 64 bit, according to the help menu), and cleared my cache, but keep encountering the same error in Twitter.

When entering a post, if I add an emoji, the text entry interface stops acting in a predictable way. I can't consistently select my place within the post, sometimes I can't add content, I usually can't remove content (although sometimes I can, and sometimes removing the emoji fixes the issue, sometimes not), sometimes if I try to type or click on the text entry area, it pastes random sections of the post back in random places, even though I have not copied those sections to my clipboard. I cannot intentionally copy or paste. I can still interact with things outside the text entry box (to close said box, for example).

Other browsers have no difficulty with Twitter's web interface, but I can consistently reproduce this error every time I try in Firefox. My only add-ons are 1Password, uBlock Origins, and Facebook Container.

Browser crashes when I try and upload a picture on twitter

I've never had this issue with Firefox until tonight, but When I'm on twitter, and I go to load up a picture (clicking the photo icon, having the pop up window, picking the image, and clicking open), as soon as the picture appears in the twitter window the entire browser crashes and I get the report it to firefox window. I've tried in safe mode, I've refreshed my browser, and I've posted the images successfully to Facebook. I even attempted trying pictures I've successfully posted prior to tonight and it's all causing the same thing.

The only thing that has changed is an update to Windows. I am not tech savy, thus I have no clue if the two are connected. If anyone can help me figure out why it's doing this, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!

If I type in the URL for Twitter or Gmail and press enter, the address bar simply goes back to whatever was in there before. This is whether I do it in a tab or a new page. BBC News is fine. Facebook is fine. Gmail and Twitter were pinned as tabs before the update. Other tabs are broken in the same way, e.g. Google Photos, but Google Calendar and Google Drive tabs are fine. Please help!

I cannot download Twitter pages. Months ago, I could. 100% reproducible: go to a twitter page, select "Save Page As..." from the File menu. The "Save As" dialog box appears, but the "Save" button is dimmed and does nothing. This never used to happen, and now it always happens. My solution until now had been to use Chrome to save Twitter pages, but Chrome has taken to saving only the .html and not the other documents necessary to reproduce the web page offline. Any idea what has happened here? I am using Mac OS 10.12.6, Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit)
