I've set my Default Zoom level to 150% but it doesn't work. When I open a link or a bookmark in a new tab the zoom level is at 100% as usual.

I have even tried visiting a website, zooming in manually, then opening a link to the same website in a new tab and the zoom level is reset to 100% in the new tab.

I don't use any other extensions which provide page zoom.

I have tried with "browser.zoom.siteSpecific" both true and false but neither helps.

Firefox does not play online videos that are "powered by JW Player 7.11.1". They get stuck on a "Loading ad" screen that goes on forever. Examples: http://www.spiegel.de/video/donald-trump-ist-in-saudi-arabien-gelandet-video-1768050.html http://www.sueddeutsche.de/politik/russland-affaere-ueberschattet-trumps-erste-auslandsreise-1.3514809 Happens in Firefox, including in Safe Mode and with all plugins deactivated. Doesn't happen in IE. No adblocker installed. And yes, I am in Germany, so the content should be accessible to me. All other web video content that is not "powered by JW Player 7.11.1" (BBC, CNN, ABC, YouTube, ...) works fine. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

I am using Firefox 59.0.2 64bit. My default search engine is set to Google. When I try to do a search using either the address bar or the search bar I am always directed to Yahoo search. The default search engine does not change but I am always redirected to Yahoo. I do not have Spigot or YahooSearch on my Computer. There is nothing suspicious in my add-ons. I have removed everything from my computer that had Yahoo in it. I have run several malware programs. There is nothing unusual in the programs listed using the control panel or task manager. I have updated Windows. I am still redirected to Yahoo. Again it does not change my default search engine, but redirects it every time.

I know the preferred search engine of Firefox is Yahoo, but is not mine. If this is Firefox's way to force us to use yahoo it will be bye-bye Firefox and hello Chrome.

I want to erase or preferably disable the "Recently Bookmarked" functionality when you go to the bookmarks part of the library. How do I do this? I don't see anything in the Support, despite doing searches using several different search terms. It is a strange thing to have without being able to erase it or disable it, especially since bookmarks saved during "private window" searches show up there.

Yahoo intruded and functions as default search, even though Google has been and is still designated as default in the settings. I removed Yahoo from the list of 1-click browsers, but that didn't affect its unwanted function as default search. This began out of the blue several days ago, and I have no idea how. I dislike Yahoo in general and have not been on that site. I'm getting really frustrated!

I need to allow some websites to store cookies, all other cookies are getting deleted every time I close FireFox. There is a dialogue "Cookies and Website-Data"-->"Permissions" that lets me whitelist specific websites. Cookies of these websites should be excepted from the deletion when closing FireFox.

The problem is that everytime I close firefox the whitelisted websites disappear... I had this problem already with Version 69, its still there in 70...

Thanks in advance for any hints...

Ok, I get it. Flash will be abandoned in 15 months time. Who can actually do something about this? The developers of sites that use flash. So why am I being punished? Why do I need to click 3 times additionally for something I have exactly zero, zip, null, no influence over whatsoever? Speaking about user friendliness, this is NOT it. Apart from downgrading or reverting to another browser that has not implemented this ridiculous anti-user-friendiness measure, what can I do?

Trying to set up HTML5 peer-peer video conferencing. Its working on Chrome but not Firefox. I have looked at all the available solutions. I have reinstalled firefox; I have checked that media.windows.foundation is set to "true"; I have checked in "safe mode".

This challenge is an issue which occurs 90% of the time. I have yet to assess what conditions occur when html5 video is finally displayed. I can only say that display only occurrred once today and that was when I first inspected the site this morning.

This situation is occurring both in Firefox and the developer edition. Firefox is latest edition and there are no plugins

Any suggestions?

When I attempt to save photos and videos from the internet, my "save as" has recently started adding .jfif on the end, behind .jpg or .mp4. This just started in the last couple of days, and I have to manually remove the .jfif before I can save it. It only does this with Firefox, but not with IE or Chrome. How do I change it back?
