A few weeks back, videos on some sites stopped working. Facebook and Netflix are notable examples, though YouTube doesn't seem to be affected. I've tried netflix in private mode (ie with extensions disabled) and have the same problem.

I'm running:

  • Firefox 79.0
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • OpenH264 Video Codec add-on version 1.8.1.1
  • Widevine CDM add-on version 4.10.1582.2
  • libavcodec-extra and libavcodec-extra58 Ubuntu packages version 7:4.2.4-1ubuntu0.1

All the plugins have automatic updates enabled and I've checked that the "Play DRM-controlled content" option in firefox preferences is enabled.

Have I missed something I should check? Are others having this problem?

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone have any solution on how to fix this problem. When I go to youtube and click on any video it comes up with a page the says: "Sorry for the interruption. We have been receiving a large volume of requests from your network. To continue with your YouTube experience, please fill out the form below."

I did not have this problem, before a few days ago. It is specific to only two computers my productive and gaming rig. Both are differing hardware and software running on them among with no common thread. I've tried other browsers on both, Chrome and Edge. Both works, among have troubleshoot my network with a laptop and a spare hardware test bed system that connected with no problem. Among other devices like a mobile phone using the website and app and streaming devices like an appletv and roku among baked in streaming interfaces on a streaming TV no problem.

Have also put noted computers on both the network by themselves individually with same results eliminating other devices that may be trying to connect to youtube.

I have also done the following to try and troubleshoot the problem as well: 1 - restarted firefox into safe mode 2 - reinstalled firefox with importing existing profiles and newly created profiles with a clean install 3 - created just new profile for firefox 4 - done the normal troubleshooting steps, clear out cache and cookies, history, saved data and so on. Among have done both virus and maleware sweeps on both computers using both the same and differing scanners to see if something comes up. Nothing on both scan of both systems. 5 - Reset modem and router no difference in result. Among plugged systems directly into the modem with same results as well.

Outside of a clean install of windows, these are the things I have done among other suggestions I have come upon like changing DNS servers. I have not contact my ISP due to I feel this is a firefox issue since it only effect these two systems and no other ones.

Hi,

There is a problem with mozilla that keeps happening and it only does on Youtube. Whenever I watch a Youtube video and then I try to search something else above in the search bar and go for it, the video itself is still playing while the background is populated by the search I did. So basically the video covers most of the search results from the Youtube, i cannot exit the video itself, I just have to make a new tab every time to escape this 'bug'. (hope this was clear for you, sorry if not)

Any tips would be appreciated

YouTube can play videos and load the comment section, but the side bar randomly disappears and when it disappears, it's blank and uninteractable with. When I try to load my profile, check notifications, or share a video, it ends up infinitely loading. Clicking the add to playlist button is unresponsive; when it's clicked, it doesn't work. Tried to delete a playlist, showed the prompt to delete the playlist and when clicked, did not delete the playlist.

Current extensions are uBlock Origin, Dark Reader, and Kapersky Password Manager. Tried deleting cookies, cache, and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox.

Hola. ¿Cómo podría evitar que algunas páginas web se recarguen solas?

Fundamentalmente noto este problema cuando estoy leyendo algún artículo en un portal de noticias como clarin.com o lanacion.com.ar. Cada tanto tiempo, la página se recarga y vuelve al inicio del artículo, lo cual es muy incómodo para la lectura. He probado con poner accessibility.blockautorefresh en verdadero, pero no dió resultado. También probé una extensión llamada Stop autorefresh pero tampoco sirvió.

Una solución brutal tal vez sea desconectarme mientras leo, pero haya alguna solución más inteligente. Muchas gracias. Usando Mozilla Firefox 78.0.2

After updating to Firefox 79.0 on August 10th, I am unable to load Gmail. When I try to go to Gmail by either 'gmail.com' or 'mail.google.com' the browser will load but will never take me off the current page and eventually stop without any error messages.

I have tried deleting all website cookies and data, reinitialize storage, clearing browser cache, disabling hardware acceleration and trying in safe mode. Deleting cookies and data fixed it for several hours but then it quickly stopped working again.

I've attempted to load Gmail on both Chrome and Edge and it worked fine on both of them.

I have been a Little Snitch user for years. Having seen all the bulls**t that apps and website try to connect to behind the scenes I couldnt possibly live without it.

Since the most recent update Firefox has broken how Snitch should, and used to, work. Instead of alerts displaying said website trying to connect to said web server/service, I get only an IP address. This requires a click on the more info button to see what the reverse IP look up is. Occasionally this is blank. Either way its a cumbersome way to browse the web. Especially when it used to work, and continues to work in other browsers.

Anyone else get this behaviour? Anyone have an idea how to fix/reverse it?

Cheers Adam

Is kerning such an unsolvable problem? In year 2020?

I just encountered it on a popular website (reddit, see image), using the latest Firefox on latest Windows.

Is this one of "mozilla has no resources to work on this" things?

Hi!

My system: Win7, FF79.0 32-bit, ru

  1. After updating from version 78.0.2, Google and Youtube sites stopped opening normally:
  2. After opening the browser everything works fine.
  3. A few minutes later, errors about blocking downloads from Google resources appear in the console (gstatic, ytimg, google-analytics, googlevideo, etc.).

Reason: "CORS request did not succeed - Third-party request blocked: single source policy denies reading remote resource" or "CORS Failed". Also suggestions from Google in the search bar stop working.

  1. After a while, these sites stop opening at all.

Reason: "This error page has no error code in its security info" in the console on the page "Error establishing secure connection" (connection-not-secure).

Only restarting the browser helps. Disabling add-ons, resetting cache and cookies does not help. Downgrade to version 78.0.2 is not possible - the profile may crash :(

Please, help!

Hello,

Youtube is not working correctly in my browser. The version installed is 79.0 (64bit). It has the same behavior on both my Windows PC and my Mac. I have also tried in Safari on my Mac and it works normally.

The problem is that the videos appear a little bit to the right of where they should be, overlapping with other elements of the page and making some elements unclickable. Even if I somehow get used to this, I then face another problem when I try to go full screen - the video remains the same size and has a black background surrounding it. I can't click the full screen button anymore to exit the mode, I can only exit full screen with the Escape key at this point.

What I've already tried: - disabling picture-in-picture; - disabling uBlock origin; - switching the protection to Standard instead of Custom in Firefox Settings (since there was a hint there that some sites may not work normally if Standard is not selected); - checking the console on the developer tools for errors (none reported);

This started a few weeks ago and I thought it would eventually get fixed by an update or something, but it looks like it's here to stay. I've also searched for an explanation/solution but couldn't find any single person having the issue I'm facing.

Any help is appreciated, Thank you

I've cleared the cookies and cache, re-started Firefox, even re-started the computer. No luck. The website host thinks it's a firefox issue.

My Firefox version is current (78.1.0esr (64-bit)). I'm on Mac OS 10.11.
