Recently YouTube videos have stopped playing when I'm using the Firefox browser on Windows 10. This has occurred both on my laptop and on my desktop computer. The player, surrounding website, comments, description, etc. all load correctly. The video does not, instead displaying either the video's thumbnail and a buffering symbol, or a blank black screen and a buffering symbol. The time codes on the video load correctly. Ads do not play either, and instead after about 15-30 seconds of buffering the "skip ad" button appears in the lower right hand corner of the video. Videos play normally on both Chrome and Edge, and all other media content appears to load correctly (music/spotify, videos on social media websites, etc.)

So far I have tried: - Running Firefox in troubleshoot mode - Refreshing Firefox - Clearing the cache - Disabling and re-enabling hardware acceleration (didn't work either way) - Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox - Rebooting my machine - Waiting for the problem to fix itself (it's been two weeks on my main desktop/tower and it's still not working).

At this point the only thing I haven't tried is messing with advanced config settings, and I'm avoiding that since I have no idea what any of them actually do (despite what certain reddit threads recommend).

As far as I'm aware, no specific update to either of my machines or Firefox has preceded the issue appearing. It's been going on on my desktop computer for about two weeks, the problem just started on my laptop last night.

It's worth nothing that I usually use UBlock Origin, Simple Tab Groups, and Facebook container. Those extensions are not currently installed since I had to reset my browser in the process of trying to fix the issue.

I can also confirm it's not an internet issue; speed tests show normal download/upload speeds for my wifi, and those have not varied since the issue began. All of my drivers are also currently up to date.

On screen 'buttons' don't work when using Firefox but work with other browsers.

When connecting to the following web site the on screen 'buttons' DONATE and DONATE NOW don't function when using Firefox.

Firefox is my default browser and has been for many years. If I copy and paste the link into another browser e.g. Chrome, the function as expected. Is this a fault with Firefox or with the particular website?

Firefox caching shopping cart incorrectly

Hi,

I am having an issue with a website I am developing, which I am only seeing in Firefox. To reproduce please try the following:

1. Go to https://mymummyteacher.com/store and add a product to the cart. 2. Close the tab / browser 3. Go back to https://mymummyteacher.com/store and add a product to the cart. The single product that has been just added is shown, however the Subtotal and Total are showing as if the previously added product is still in there too.

If I do a hard reload (hold down shift), all the other products then appear. So I think this is an issue with caching. I am not seeing it on other browsers. Is this a bug, or is there something I can do to stop it happening?

Thanks

After the last update of Firefox, 94.02, my browser keeps disconnecting from some sites like gmail, yahoo. Once it disconnects it cannot reconnect back till a hard reset . Sometimes it doesn't respond at all to some sites. Other sites like Facebook have no such issue. I have the same issue on windows 10 and Linux on two separate machines and two different networks. And no , safe mode is no better. Any ideas ?

I called Rally, they said the problem was the uhc site. I called uhc ... they said the problem was a firefox problem.

Basically this means the end of firefox for me

I use snipping tool to paste entries into my evernote, which is like a dropbox website similar to one note.

Unfortunately both at home and at work on a government firewall, only micrsoft edge allows me to paste Screen Snips that i sent to my clipboard.

At work only firefox will run evernote and edge doesn't; however i cannot paste the snipping tool snips.

Basically Firefox is being shut out of microsoft computers due to inability to paste clipboard screen snips. You guys should lawyer up or something.

Hey, so something I do requires quite a few alerts (notification centre on mac os) coming in quick fire within a couple of seconds from an app. On Chrome lets say the 5/10 new notifications will all stack down the screen, where as Firefox will show one and the rest reveal on click. Is there anywhere to replicate what Chrome does which shows / stacks all new ones until closed?

Thanks

When I open Web Developer Tools -> Inspector -> Eyedropper the eyedropper just shows a circle but does not copy or display the colors as you hover over them. When you click it just copies #000000 to the clipboard.

The only way I can use the Eyedropper is by going to: Tools -> Browser Tools -> Eyedropper.

My current Firefox version is 94.0.2 and I noticed this issue within the last minor/major update. I also noticed that the issue heavily depends on the website you are trying to get colors from. Some websites work fine while others it does not work.

When I try it on Hacker News (https://news.ycombinator.com/) it does not work for me.
