A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

Hi, first of thanks for reading and possibly responding.

The issue I am having has been going on for a few days. In websites where youtube video's are embedded if I try and play the video on the said site it will load and display an error message An error occurred. Please try again later. If I visit the video on youtube, link provided in the video itself, then it plays just fine. Error is not restricted to one site but anything that embeds youtube videos.

I have also come across some strange youtube.com issues, when I am on the main website you get the thumbnails of video's but no time duration are displayed in the thumbnail, neither are the 3 dots where you can have one of the videos removed (not a big deal and maybe this was implemented a while ago I don't know tbh). When I play a video, as in visit the video page on youtube the side bar videos sometimes do and sometimes don't display time duration.

Please check attached image to see what I mean. Left is without said timecodes, right is what it almost should be.

What addons do I use: Ublock Origin is the only one worth noting but even without it the weird thing still occurs. I don't use any plug ins that correspond with youtube.

I am using the latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Things I have tried thus far to resolve it: - make sure Firefox is up to date - try with and without addblocker (Ublock) - remove Adobe flash entirely - refresh Firefox and clear all data and cookies 9tried this I think 3 times now, no change) - looked through older posts with similar issues but most links regarding html5 on youtube were 404 and sometimes the solution stated things like 'cause by some video helped addon' which I do not use or updating Flash

Am I the only one with this issue?

I was not able to check my bank account in Firefox browser because, there are two pages to login through, one is for username, the second for password, but after entering password, and clicking submit, it does not load the page, it just sits there doing nothing at all.... I then tried it in Chrome browser, but it did the same thing, so I thought maybe the site was having problems, but a quick Google search for isitdownnow showed that the site was up and running fine. Next, I tried it in Safari browser, and it worked. After that I opened Firefox again, and tried again, but it worked this time. Can anyone explain this to me?? Thanks in advance!!

Hi, The vams.cdc.gov portal is just showing a blank page, the cdc site says that firefox is a browser to use and also says chrome,safari etc. I need to get on the site because I have to register my mother for over 75 to get the vaccine. I have a phone modem and windows 7. Trying to download either of the other browsers is a long long long download. Anybody know the fix to getting this portal working. I noticed that it uses the Aura framework ie window.Aura By the way the page source is there, and the title bar does show VAMS Portal, just the blank page though. Thanks for helping if you can.

Hi everyone! I am looking for some help on how to fix my problem. Yesterday, suddenly videos on Firefox stopped having sound and in one particular website (public television) videos stopped working altogether. These are websites that I use on a daily basis and have been using for months. All of these websites and videos work fine on google Chrome. I am using a desktop and Windows 10 and use DuckDuckgo Privacy essentials. These are the things I have done to troubleshoot: -restarted computer _restarted Firefox in Safe Mode -checked the volume mixer -checked the App volume device preferences on Windows -signed off my firefox account and logged in without an account -refreshed Firefox -Uninstalled and installed Firefox

On my laptop (Windows 7) everything still works fine as usual.

Any tip or advice will be much appreciated. Please bare in mind that I have a very basic computer knowledge. many thanks Poppy

Hello! On a certain adult website, all the videos play verrrry slooooly. YouTube videos play fine. And this certain site works fine when I try it with Chrome. I recently added a bunch of adblockers like Ghostery and Adblocker plus and Badger and Decentraleyes and HTPPS Everywhere. Is the problem with one of these? What can I do to get the videos to play at full speed?

long story short, if I go on amazon.com it redirects me amazon.com.br without asking me, no pop-ups, no "amazon wants to know you location" it just looks at my IP and send me away, also, if I do something like amazon.co.uk it will prompt me for "would you like to be redirected to amazon.com.br?" and I don't want that either, if I could go to amazon.jp it's all the same for me

note: 1: I used amazon as an example, this happens with eBay, YouTube, Bing, reddit, facebook, PayPal, or any other website that is available on a .br domain 2: I don't want to use a VPN or any Proxy server, I'm not rich, I can't pay 129.99 a year for a browser extesion, and there are free ones, but they bring my 120Mb/s connection to a grinding halt 3: this is most likely my ISP / IP being broadcasting my location without my consent, while some websites do ask me to allow it, my IP most of the time will basically lay open on the table and tell the website "if you wanna look, it's there" 3.2: this is especially annoying with the advertisements saying stuff like "80% of gamers in [USER_CITY] love this RPG" and I'm like, really? a backwater christian town where only 20% of the population have TVs and 5% of those 20% have broadband connection?

in short, I don't want any websites to know where I am
