Hello:

I recently changed to Mac OS X Version 10.9.5 and came with it Firefox 33.1.1. Now the 720p and higher resolution options are no longer available for Youtube videos. What should I do to access those options?

(Meanwhile, the Safari Version 7.1.7 (9537.85.16.12) on the machine has all the options.)

I'd appreciate it if you'd kindly tell what I should do.

Thank you,

R.

Hi,

I am developing a java/selenium based application and need to fake a microphone/cam and pass media i.e. audio and/or video files to the browser.

I have been able to successfully do this in Chrome using the below code snippet:

          DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.chrome(); 
          ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();
          options.addArguments("--allow-file-access-from-files",
                                                 "--use-fake-ui-for-media-stream",
                                                 "--allow-file-access",
                                                 "--use-file-for-fake-audio-capture=D:\\PATH\\TO\\WAV\\xxx.wav",
                                                 "--use-fake-device-for-media-stream");
           capabilities.setCapability(ChromeOptions.CAPABILITY, options);
           ChromeDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(capabilities);


Are there similar options available in Firefox to achieve the same capability? If not, how can this be done? Any help will be helpful.

Thanks, John

When watching a movie online, where does it go on my computer? I know it is downloading to my PC while streaming because can see it in the progress bar of the video player, but when I search for the file using all the latest search tools, i can never find the file, in cache, or temp, or whatever. I am using FF, and the file has to be somewhere, I am just looking in the wrong place.

I deleted firefox as I was having some issues with the browser. I did a clean install. I'm using Mavericks and firefox 33.0.2 version (because I went into time machine to recover bookmarks since the new version firefox 39 did not have them)

When I downloaded the 33 version, firefox opened but no bookmarks? I have tried: 1. going to library in time machine and trying to find the "bookmarks profile folder or Firefox Profile Folder---NOTHING?

Any ideas? if this bookmark folder gone? otherwise where is it?

Thanks

New Install of Firefox - Crashes within seconds of opening it

I just installed the latest version of virtualbox and did a clean install of windows 7, I have virtually no applications installed and did an install of the latest version of firefox. It crashes within seconds of starting. I used firefox on my previous Windows 7 through virtualbox and did not have any problems. I also allocated more memory and hard drive space to windows 7 than I did before.

So far I tried safe mode and turning off hardware acceleration and neither helped. I did not try to reset it to factory settings because I just installed it - it should already be in factory settings.

This is the most recent crash report:

Any ideas on what is causing this and what I can do to fix it? Thanks!

What is Mozilla's response to ZDnet's published assertion that Mozilla is abandoning tracking protection?

See http://www.zdnet.com/article/mozilla-abandons-firefox-tracking-protection-initiative/?tag=nl.e539&s_cid=e539&ttag=e539&ftag=TRE17cfd61 ZDnet is now a divi… (read more)

See http://www.zdnet.com/article/mozilla-abandons-firefox-tracking-protection-initiative/?tag=nl.e539&s_cid=e539&ttag=e539&ftag=TRE17cfd61

ZDnet is now a division of CBS Interactive; link published and received today.

"Tracker-blocking programs could be maintained as assiduously as antimalware programs. If that had happened in recent years, we would have seen continuous improvement in Microsoft's tracking protection implementation, for example, with regular updates to the TPLs. Instead, the feature has been essentially abandoned--kept in Internet Explorer as a checklist item but not maintained at all.

"Mozilla appears to be heading down the same road. The Bugzilla page for the feature hasn't had a comment in many months. It's not listed for inclusion in any of the next three Firefox releases, and there's no sign that the feature will ever become official, much less be maintained or expanded."

when I star firefox, it shows nicely a 5 row 3 column tiles, or say, 15 sites I pinned.

but when I open a new tab, it only shows 4X2, only 8 sites shows up. and I have to use keyboard and mouse to zoom out, and then I can see the all 5X3 tiles, 15 sites.

It's really annoyed to zoom out every single time.

So please fix it!

I want to know how to manage the add-on versions. DownloadHelper 4.9.24 is the last version that works with my chosen downloader.

Their latest version doesn't allow me to use it, so I either have to downgrade Firefox or find some way to manage this add-ons version compatibility. I've been happy with FF for a long time, its a shame I seem to be given a choice of downgrading FF or doing without their add-ons primary function.
