My default language set to English. However, when I open a logon window, my account and browser settings the language switches to Vietnamese. Firefox version is 77 running on Windows 10.

Where do I check the settings to switch back to English? I have only English set in General -> Language. Any other settings that may affects the language I want to use?

Thanks, H Doan

Block autoplay being ignored on Firefox 78

Prior to the latest version, I had set "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" in about:config to False in addition to blocking both audio and video within the settings so that nothing would autoplay without my input.

I updated to version 78 yesterday, and it seems that "media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed" is now gone from within about:config. I'm getting videos autoplaying within sites like YouTube, despite me setting both audio and video to not autoplay.

Is there anything I can do to ensure that nothing starts playing without me allowing it?

My financial firm rep said they use Glance Technologies (aka Perk Labs) for screen sharing with their client devices. However, the screen sharing could not be made to work today with the rep on the phone, even though I unchecked the button in my Firefox Privacy settings for blocking popups. I am now wondering if some other Privacy settings in Firefox are known to create issues with Glance Technologies screen sharing. It would also be interesting to find out more generally about Firefox settings and screen sharing using other screen sharing technology firms.

Hi,

I've tried to fix this by following the relevant knowledge base articles, but nothing I've tried so far seems to have worked.

Since this morning, Firefox has failed to load in certain pages. There's no error message, FF briefly flashes the Stop button and then displays a totally blank page. I checked on Chrome, and it had no problem loading the page.

On pages that do load, ublock origin doesn't seem to be blocking any ads. I assume these problems are related, so I include this for completeness.

I've tried

  1. Restarting firefox in safe mode
  2. Restarting my PC
  3. Clearing firefox cookies and cache
  4. Restarting my router
  5. Flushing my DNS

What should I try next? Is there any additional info I need to provide?
