Two questions re: the forced update from 78.15 to 91.

1: Will all bookmarks, and all other settings be retained? Is there a form of recommended backup in case of problems (I currently use MozBackup, still)

2: Will the "Bookmark Tab Here" add-on work with 91? I need a user friendly bookmarking system, which was the reason I stayed with ESR in the first place.

Only on Firefox (not Chrome, for example) animated gifs and videos on Twitter will not display -- they instead show a black screen. When paused or not yet played, there is a visible image, but as soon as I press play, it goes to black. The audio on a video will play just fine, but the screen/image is still black.

I have checked my graphics drivers for updates and they are all up-to-date. Also the gifs/videos play just fine if I use Chrome.

Firefox is up to date. I'm on v 93.0 (64-bit).

I keep accidentally muting my tabs when all I want is to click on them to switch to them.

I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

How do I do that?

My version is 89.0

Starting a few weeks ago firefox refuses to play video from netflix and prime video. I've googled a bit, but nothing worked. Using firefox 93.0 on windows 10, here is what I tried so far (not necessarily in that order):

  • Refresh page
  • Restart PC
  • clear cache
  • disable extensions
  • run in troubleshoot mode
  • refresh firefox profile
  • try a new firefox profile
  • reinstall firefox
  • checked whether the drm box is checked/checked and unchecked it a few times
  • reinstalled widevine
  • checked whether privacy.resistFingerprinting is false, since someone apparently had a netflix error related to that setting

Probably forgot some. Also works fine on other browsers, just thought it was odd.

Here is what the errors in the debugger say:

on prime video:

The oddest thing happened today. Maybe not that odd based on other posts. I've always had Adobe Acrobat as my default PDF reader. For whatever reason, this afternoon, it changed itself back to FF reader. I don't know how that happened. One moment it was working fine and then it wasn't. I reset it back to Adobe. Any explanation as to why it would change itself? Thanks

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

Firefox causes 100% CPU usage when opening couple tabs at the same time!!!

I Am on desktop:

i5 9600KF (high performance mode) 16GB 3200mhz ram NVME... Windows 10 Pro x64 Firefox last stable

When I open Firefox tabs aren't loaded all at the same time, but they are suspended. So after that: when I switch between 6 tabs quickly - they start to open at the same time. And CPU usage skyrockets to 100% LOL! Given I Am on high end PC - this is joke! I was using chrome and had hundreds of tabs and Chrome doesn't even suspend them by default. They open all at the same time I think!

So there is something wrong! I tried troubleshooting mode and it was the same problem!

Thanks for help!

hi. i was debugging my Django_React project in inspect element mode of firefox and that was my first time doing that so i was confused and clicking on some buttons to get to know what to do and outta no where that page crashed. i did rerun my whole project and tried again to connect to it but doesnt work. i checked, the firefox is up to date. i ran firefox in troubleshoot mode and reran the project but still doesnt work and crashes. i think it is not about my hardware or firewall options.

the FIRST REPORT ID that i got is: "bp-cd41341c-37e7-4c5d-9494-f85340211026"

the LAST REPORT ID that i got after the whole project rerun and in troubleshoot mode is: "bp-228837ce-f0d5-4767-981c-46f240211026"

Sorry, I suspect this is an often asked question, but after endless searching on this site, and trying many old solutions, I still can not create, save, and use a User Profile. [See uploaded photo]

First, when I explore my C:\Users\Bud Parker\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles folder I find empty folders named for the many times I have attempted to recreate a usable Firefox profile. There is no JSON File or anything else in any of the folders. Hence, it appears I cannot save a created profile. Of course, if it isn't saved in the appropriate location - I'm dead in the water.

I tried saving one on my Desktop and using it, all to no avail. In past, I've run some aggressive maintenance programs cleaning up Windows, but I could always enter Firefox. Of course, that does not mean it didn't finally occur...

By the way, I can use a Portable version of Firefox, just not an installed version. I completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it with the current version. Still nothing.

So, now I ask the Mozilla Brain Trust for assistance. Let me say in advance that I appreciate you reading and thinking about this,

Bud
