I need to completely block videos from autoplaying! So far I've done the following:

  Switch firefox settings to block video and audio
   media.autoplay.default = 5
   media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false
   media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true
   media.autoplay.block-webaudio = true
   services.sync.prefs.sync.media.autoplay.default = false
   media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed = false (android)

(or)

   media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 (PC)

The videos are hidden from the start but if you click anywhere in the website they pop up!

Hello,

I have a web page that prints a document, and then redirects back to the main page. This website has always worked in every browser, and now in Firefox 84.0.2 it no longer redirects.

What changed in Firefox, and how do I get it redirecting again?

Here is a snippet of the code in question:

<script type='text/javascript'>

    var interval = setInterval(function() {
         if(document.readyState === 'complete') {
              clearInterval(interval);
              window.print();
         }
    }, 100);
    
    window.onbeforeprint = function() {
         window.location = 'https://www.mozilla.org';
    }

</script>

The scroll wheel is not working in Firefox. It works in other programs, so it is not a problem with my mouse.

It just started today. I have cleared my data and cookies, and restarted Firefox. I have not installed any new extensions in months.

This is a serious usability issue. I will have to switch to another browser, that will allow the use of the scroll wheel.

Everytime I update to a new Firefox, I lose my auto logins on sites. I have to get out my Password list and manually login to every frikkin' site. I keep putting off updating, hoping that maybe the problem has been fixed, but like Lucy pulling the football from Charlie Brown, I give in and update and WHAM!

If this can't be fixed, is there a way to disable auto Firefox updates or even that nagging box in the upper right hand corner.

I don't do a lot of surfing on my PC any more, so to have this continually happen over and over again is extremely aggravating!

Hello I was attempting to backup my c-drive documents to onedrive when my computer crashed. When I turned it back on I could no longer access any of the files I had attempted to back up on my C-drive (panic!). I looked online for advice and followed advice to unlink Onedrive and restart. I did this and managed to find my C-drive files (phew) but the whole of my desktop and browser history, passwords, bookmarks etc has been completely wiped. There is some really important things in there and I would really like to get it back. Any help much appreciated...I am not tech minded so any advice as simply put as possible please....

Thanks

None of the available migration or restore methods are capable of preserving OneTab data. In every case I have tried, OneTab is missing from the add-ons in my new installation or profile. The only approach which achieved anything at all was to replace the entire .mozilla director under Ubuntu, but even this only displayed the OneTab page and its data on the first invocation of Firefox. Since the add-on was not present, the data was gone at the second invocation. However, repeating this process at least allowed me to export the OneTab data from *one* profile on the first invocation. Unfortunately, this method is completely useless under Windows, as are the recommended approaches of using Firefox sync (with sync turned on for add-ons) or replacing the contents of a newly created profile with the contents of an old or saved one. How can I properly backup and restore or migrate a Firefox installation, *including* my OneTab installation and data?

Is there any way to bookmark all synced tabs? I'm trying to move my open tabs from my phone to my pc.

I know you can right click a single synced tab and "Bookmark this tab". But I would like to do it for all open tabs.

I know you can "Open all in tabs", but that is an awful solution due to lag and potential redirects.

For reasons unknown to me, Google currently defaults to Czech when I'm using Firefox even though Firefox itself, my VPN, and my computer all are set to default to English. My VPN is also set for the US. The fact that my default browser is not Google should be irrelevant as even that search engine is set to English. Whenever I try to log into Chrome, the default is still and always English. I cannot find any settings anywhere in either Firefox or my computer that would cause Google to default to any language other than English. Please help.

Not sure this time.......you guys have helped me before, (thanks heaps...BTW) luckily I did my Banking before it crashed! groan.....my guy has no idea...('cos he's dyslexic) ... years ago he did a course, then left it up to me! It's to do with the fact that I didn't understand how to create/data into emails & such in the first place properly...now it's a big mess, plus for the life of me I couldn't remember how to fix up my emails, plus I had that problem of the long string of data that I have 'nursed' & that has now totally disappeared! Not very easy to explain, sorry! I had about 5 years worth, Hmmmmm... But I can't explain where my emails have gone! I do still have a few listed 'bookmarks' in alphabetical order but I don't know how to restore them, (she said hopefully)! I still cannot find out where the emails 'live'.....they seem to have located themselves into a new format! (Oh yeah, about 9 months ago I figured out how to insert a 'NEW FOLDER' ..lol... that really helped.) Sigh...this has taken me about 6 hours to sort out.....I am so very grateful, I hope this time who knows, I might get to flex my Wings!! LOL....SlimSylv.....Happy New Year to you all...Stay Safe......

Good evening. I have run the Ookla speed test through Edge and my download is 212.94 Mbps and my upload is 11.76 Mbps and uses the Spectrum Syracuse Server. Running Spectrum speed test on Edge registers Spectrum Syracuse as the optimum server and download is 236.2 and upload 11.6. Both are using my Spectrum server in Syracuse, NY.

When I run Ookla through Firefox I got 227.17 down and 11.63 up. Spectrum's speed test through Firerefox's Syracuse server 231.8 up and 11.5 down.

However for a while earler this evening when I ran both programs on both browsers and both through Syracuse's servers I was getting downs of 0.0 to 0.7. I reset the modem and router and still had low speeds but shortly after I got the readings I wrote in the first two paragraphs.

What would be the reason for this? Anything particular with Firefox? Something I should look out for in the future? Partially a curiosity while the other part being proactive.

Thanks for anybody who can take time to answer.

When Facebook updated their system a few months ago, running it on firefox with windows 10 on a pc crashes mozilla. It happens if you are logged into FB for some length of time (say an hour). I have no extensions operating just plain firefox. I turned on task manager inside firefox to watch what happened over time along with windows task manager. Within a half hour, FB is using high energy impact and just about all available memory in the system and filled the cache as well. Eventually it just freezes firefox and I have to kill the program go back and clear the cache and often do a complete refresh of firefox
