Hello, I was wondering if anyone have any solution on how to fix this problem. When I go to youtube and click on any video it comes up with a page the says: "Sorry for the interruption. We have been receiving a large volume of requests from your network. To continue with your YouTube experience, please fill out the form below."

I did not have this problem, before a few days ago. It is specific to only two computers my productive and gaming rig. Both are differing hardware and software running on them among with no common thread. I've tried other browsers on both, Chrome and Edge. Both works, among have troubleshoot my network with a laptop and a spare hardware test bed system that connected with no problem. Among other devices like a mobile phone using the website and app and streaming devices like an appletv and roku among baked in streaming interfaces on a streaming TV no problem.

Have also put noted computers on both the network by themselves individually with same results eliminating other devices that may be trying to connect to youtube.

I have also done the following to try and troubleshoot the problem as well: 1 - restarted firefox into safe mode 2 - reinstalled firefox with importing existing profiles and newly created profiles with a clean install 3 - created just new profile for firefox 4 - done the normal troubleshooting steps, clear out cache and cookies, history, saved data and so on. Among have done both virus and maleware sweeps on both computers using both the same and differing scanners to see if something comes up. Nothing on both scan of both systems. 5 - Reset modem and router no difference in result. Among plugged systems directly into the modem with same results as well.

Outside of a clean install of windows, these are the things I have done among other suggestions I have come upon like changing DNS servers. I have not contact my ISP due to I feel this is a firefox issue since it only effect these two systems and no other ones.

I recently installed Firefox as my default browser on my laptop with windows 10. When I try to download an svg file to my computer, it comes in as a Microsoft Edge HTML Document that isn't compatible to my Silhouette Crafting Program. It doesn't give me an option to download from Firefox. I changed to Firefox to get away from Microsoft Edge. I don't know where to find any settings to correct this? What do I need to do? TIA

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, my Facebook will only run in Private Browsing.

It's not the cache, cookies, extensions, or storage. (See: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1284418 for what I tried).

It's just a small issue but I read a lot of articles and my Firefox and computer tend to crash fairly often. Then I lose all the tabs I have open because I'm in Private mode, and can't restore them.

In about:performance I see tabs listed after I have clicked on them whether they are the current tab I'm viewing or not. They stay there and continue to show 'energy impact' used. I would like to know if it's possible for tabs to go completely quiescent when they are not the current tab I'm viewing. I've set browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false and it doesn't change this.
