This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

Hello,

I am getting a McAfee pop up notification and I have identified the site name and would like to add it to the notifications settings to block it but I cannot figure out how to add a site manually to that list. There are no options on the notification settings to allow for a manual site addition. I am on FireFox version 88.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro.

I have also tried searching to see how to remove what is probably malware and cannot find anything. I do not have any McAfee products on my laptop.

Sincerely,

AmazonPrincessDiana

YouTube TV Buffering Problem with Firefox

I have hit what appears to be a "YouTube TV" (vs YouTube) buffering problem. It happens only with Firefox on my PCs. After a few seconds to a minute of playing a TV program or movie, the video/audio stops with a spinning arrow. If I previously had turned on "stats for nerds" to monitor this, I can see when network activity stops and the buffer then eventually gets exhausted.

This does NOT happen when running YouTube TV on my TVs or on my iPhone. Probably more significant, it does NOT happen with YouTube TV under either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome on these PCs. If I run Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, i.e., no add-ons, extensions, etc., the problem still exists, so it is not just some rogue add-on, but is related to Firefox itself. The problem appears to be only for "YouTube TV" on Firefox since, for example, videos played from YouTube (vs "YouTube TV") do not have the problem under Firefox.

I tried rebooting my router as well as the PCs. The problem still existed. The PCs are high speed and the internet connection is fiber optic. One of the PCs is connected by Ethernet; the other is wireless. Download/upload speeds are over 900 Mbps on the Ethernet PC. I have not seen slow network indications on anything except this "YouTube TV" with Firefox mixture. Hardware does not seem to be the issue.

Apparently the problem is software. I also tried temporarily disabling my antivirus/firewall software. No change. I'm running Windows 10 version 21H1 and Firefox 88.0.1. I'm new to YouTube TV; although most of my viewing with it has been done on TVs, I don't recall seeing this problem in my PC tests a month or so ago.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Hello altogether. I sat up my MacBook to automatically enter light or dark mode. Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave. Even if I restart the MacBook the next day, while the system boots with light mode enabled, Firefox will remain in dark mode.

To change this temporarily, I have to open the macOS settings and enable light mode. Firefox now change to light mode and stays in light mode, even if I again re-enable the automatic changing in the macOS settings.

Later those days, Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave, like described before.

Is this a known bug? Anything else I can try?

Thanks for reading, looking forward to a possible solution.

I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

Many thanks, bd89

How can I keep the browser setting to open pdf files with Adobe Acrobat, without doing advanced customization? It works every time I reset the option, but changes to "save" for the next time. Adobe says I should switch browsers, to Chrome for example.

I used to have Acrobat as an extension, but now there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Why is this?

When selecting PayPal as a pay option & a new window opens up, it will not connect to my PayPal account unless I first go directly to PayPal & log in directly. I am using the latest FireFox but it has been doing this for a long time so I don't think the version is the issue. I believe it is a setting in either PayPal or FireFox. PayPal reviewed my account and noted that there is no issue with it. That leaves a FireFox setting. Any ideas?

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.

Recently switched from Chrome to Firefox on macOS, and I'd always open PDFs directly in Chrome. I've set my default PDF viewer to Firefox but when I open any downloaded PDFs from Finder, they go directly to a new Firefox window instead of a new tab (as I'm used to from Chrome).

Any way around this? I'd love to have any offline PDFs to be opened in a new tab by default, but nothing has worked so far.

In recent times, after I've been browsing for about 20 or 30 minutes, Firefox becomes very very slow to respond. Simultaneously it coincides with a similar slowdown over the entire computer - in finder and with other open programs. If I close Firefox (which takes several minutes to complete) the slowness of finder and the open programs disappears. The slowness never happens unless Firefox is open. I've tried Chrome and haven't had the same issue.

What might be causing this delayed slowness and how do I solve it?

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to know when Firefox will be dropping Windows 7 support? I readed on some websites that Google Chrome will be dropped support for Windows 7 in 15 January 2022 year so I would like to know if there are any plans by Mozilla Developers to drop support for Windows 7?

I don't have computers with Windows 7 but my friends asked me about this because they know that I am active community member of Mozilla but I can't answer because I don't know so this is why I asked you today about this.

Yours faithfully, Piotr
