I am using Windows 7 64bit. For some time I have noticed that in about 50% of cases Firefox prevents the system from shutting down in hibernate mode. Instead, the Windows login dialog appears again. If I terminate Firefox before shutting down the system, the system will shut down correctly in hibernate mode. Any idea what that could be?

Best regards,

Why doesn't the dialog for Autoplay fully render in Preferences?

In Firefox 78.0.2, the dialog for Autoplay looks ghostly. All other dialogs (e.g., Location, Camera, Microphone, Virtual Reality, etc) are raised and display as expected.… (read more)

In Firefox 78.0.2, the dialog for Autoplay looks ghostly. All other dialogs (e.g., Location, Camera, Microphone, Virtual Reality, etc) are raised and display as expected. It seems that the dialog for Autoplay does not raise to the front. It is rendering behind other elements.

It's faux modal window...a "fauxdal".

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open the "Privacy & Security" section of the Preferences (about:preferences#privacy)
  2. Click on "Settings..." button for Autoplay

Screencaps uploaded; one showing normal, expected modal display (for Location Permissions), the other showing the "fauxdal" condition. In the latter, the screencap was marked up to draw attention to the ghostly window corners and title. Notice the I-beam cursor in both images, as it was positioned over the Search field.

Mozilla Firefox is my default web browser since it was established. I never had any problems with it until now. It is this baffling sound issue. Firefox will not play any sound. At first I noticed that some adds on Youtube videos were without sound but I took no action. Yesterday I noticed that no sound will play on Firefox browser. I have no issues with my sound card or audio issues of any kind. Google Chrome plays sounds normally, as well as the Edge, this issue is only when I use Mozilla Firefox. I spent most of the time yesterday and today on trying to solve this issue but with no success. I tried every solution i could find on the internet but no joy. Firefox just don't play any sounds. As Firefox is my preferred, default web browser this thing is especially frustrating. Does anybody have a solution for this problem? Please help! I really don't want to go and use other web browsers, I love Firefox and I donate to it regularly.

Apparently randomly, about every 2-7 days, all my extensions become disabled with no option to enable them again. I delete the compatibility.ini and all extensions.* files and the extensions are then enabled again.

I have tried creating new profiles, but it keeps happening. I have scanned for viruses. I have the latest versions of the extensions.

I sometimes *need* to run Firefox ESR v52.8.1 (64-bit) in parallel. I wonder if that could be the cause..?

Firefox v. 78.0.2 (64-bit) OS WIN7 (64 bit)

I would like to stream games using FF 64 bit v. 78.0.2, but cannot because, according to NBCSports.com, "Recent versions of Firefox do not support Adobe Flash with authenticated video streams. Please use an alternative browser."

Can this error message be correct? Why would FF be the only browser that doesn't support flash? Any work around would be helpful and appreciated. Please refrain from lectures on the demise of flash or any other tangentially related topic. I'm interested in streaming a game while I work.

Thank you in advance,
