I am using windows 10 64. Youtube videos don't play on the latest version of firefox, but do with microsoft edge. The spinning loading circle icon appears but video playback just doesn't work on any video at all, not even youtube shorts. This seems to be a problem only with firefox version 106.0.1 and 106.0.2 on my system. I downgraded to firefox version 105.0.3 and had no issue with youtube playback.

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?

The minimum size of the Library panel has been getting larger and larger. It can no longer be resized so that it can be fully visible on the desktop when other windows are open to 1:1 size. The issue first started nine months ago. It was troublesome then, forcing me to use extra hand motions and mouse clicks just to get a fraction of a seconds worth of information.

In other words, Firefox has made it more difficult to retrieve important information that used to be available at a glance. I have determined that Firefox has rewritten their programming to intentionally do this to us. WHY?

Please make the Library Panel box fully resizable again. It is becoming a make or break issue for me. Stop tinkering around. You had perfection, now it is ruined. I do not want the window buried, partially obscured, or on top of any other window. It should have equal rights with other fully resizable elements.

I want to use my tablet for writing/drawing on some websites but the browser doesn't recognize the device. It computes the mouse on the "drawing" screen but not the tablet, and also computes using the pen for clicking and dragging, and/or the tablet as a touch-pad. The device works fine on chrome and on my drawing softwares, so it isn't a problem with the pressure sensors or driver. Tested disabling all addons and restarting Mozilla, but the problem remains. Mozilla is up to date, and I use W10 (also up to date).

Any advice?

disable pop=up sign-in with google prompt LAPTOP WINDOWS 11 FIREFOX 105.0.3 64-BIT 1. Over the last few days I have been getting a sign in with Google prompt on most websites I visit. Please refer to the photos. This looks identical to the Google generated promt, however in my Google account settings I have this option turned off. Is this a Google bug or a Firefox thing? With all the other annoying popups these days, this is just another irritation frustration to view a website.

I USE DEV TOOLS from FIREFOX TOOLS TO FIGURE OUT IF IT'S FIREFOX OR GOOGLE CAUSING ISSUE. HERE IS ONE OF 50 LINES RELATING TO GOOGLE/TWITTER/FIREFOX CONVERGENCE

(ALSO, I USE UBLOCK & LASTPASS)

LINE FROM DEVELOPER CONSOLE WHEN I OPEN TAB TO TWITTER LOG-ON PAGE:

20:36:03.881 Google Analytics and Tag Manager is being shimmed by Firefox. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1713687 for details. sandbox eval code:1:9

I DON'T WANT TO CLOSE THIS POP-UP BUTTON EVERYTIME I GO TO LOG IN AT TWITTER, IT'S NEW. I HATE IT. HAVE DELETED TONS OF UNKNOWN FILES IN MY USER FOLDERS TODAY, NOTHING HELPED (LOCAL/GOOG FOLDER & TEMP FOLDERS). MAYBE I NEED TO RESET SOMETHING IN CONFIG OR A REGEDIT SETTING FOR FIREFOX. I'LL DO ANYTHING. Thanks!

Since last Friday I haven't been able to access any of my bank accounts with US Bank. I can access these accounts through my US Bank phone app and through Chrome when I use it on my laptop as browser. When I called US Bank IT they could not help because the phone app and Chrome worked. What's happening with Firefox? I have used it for years to get to these accounts, and now I am unable to.

When trying to navigate to websites I very frequently receive the error message, "www.google.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". (1) This is an intermittent behavior happening on websites that were accessible previously and then become accessible again on later attempts, (2) It happens on websites that I have used satisfactorily for years. (3) It happens on ones for hospitals, banks, etc. which are known to be secure. This occurs after waiting for a period of time, like a timeout error would. I do let my copy of Firefox do its default auto updates.

Please advise how to end these errors so that I can reliably use Firefox again.
