I am trying to stop autoplay on Tubi. I have tried everything from this topic: [[Firefox block autoplay not working, preferences are showing "Block Audio and Video"|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278114#answer-1283973]] None of it works, modifying this option breaks Tubi playback completely: media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 , option 1 does nothing. I am at my wits end trying to stop auto playback on Tubi with FireFox. I tried another browser and auto playback is disabled easily on Tubi, and works as expected. I hope someone has figured this out for Tubi! Mark

Hi, I have my favorites websites pinned. The one I started having issues with is Yahoo. I can click on any other icon that is pinned and that website comes up. Not so with Yahoo. For about a week, it was making me open a new tab, then click on yahoo. But since Thursday, I've had to restart my computer to allow me to access Yahoo. HELP, what is happening and how can I fix it. Thank you, Linda Hurst

Printer output problems

I have a windows 10 pc, using Firefox, with both a wired and wireless printer. When I go to print from various web sites, I get a print window pop up. It shows a full size page output. Depending upon the site, the actual print output size varies from about 30 percent of the paper size to more than 100%, leaving some of the page overflowing. For example, when I go to print a Washington post crossword puzzle, it properly fills the page, without changing any setting, if I go to print the Wall Street Journal puzzle, it appears to be reduced in size by more than half.

If I close the pop up, and open the Firefox menu and click on the print icon, I get a page which shows the item to be printed, and I note that the scale option is set to 70%. This apparently works fine for the WAPO puzzle, but renders the puzzle too small for the WSJ. To get the WSJ puzzle full size, I have to change the scale option to 150%, which, of course, renders the output much to large. Another site requires a 100% scale option to produce the proper size output.

I can find no way on the pop up print control to change the scale option or any way to make all of these sites print the proper size without changing the scale option.

Renewed with ISP and now am getting "up to" 600 Mbps download speed. I have a wired connection. I actually get over 700 on Opera, and about 550 on Chrome. With Firefox, I usually get about 280. I feel certain it is the browser - that is the only difference. Even wireless is fast. I have already tried different router ports, cables, disabling add-on's, etc. My version is up to date. I wonder if there is some setting I need to adjust to get the higher speeds. My preference is to stay with this browser, but not at the cost of speed. Appreciate any help!

In Firefox, I linked to website "8x8" to attend a meeting. When the website loaded, there was a drop down question whether to allow "8x8" to access video and audio. When I typed "allow", Windows crashed with a stop code: Page fault in nonpaged area. When I tried to link to the website with Microsoft Edge, the website again loaded and again there was the drop down question whether to allow access to video and audio. This time, however, when I answered "allow", the system did not crash. What could be happening in Firefox? Thanks

can anyone tell me if this is really that easy? It should be. for instance, I ran a test by creating what you see in the attached image.

and it imports just fine, and in the correct place, however, the actual bookmarked URLs in the 2nd sublevel near the end do not show up. Can someone tell me why? I tried to add these tags in there:

ADD_DATE="1603960941" LAST_MODIFIED="1604177937"

however, that did nothing either. I even tried it by inserting all the garbled junk into the appropriate place, that FF inserts when exporting a BM file. no luck there either. oh, and by the way, I'm not a black hat. I do not buy corporate software. I do everything on my own. Any help here folks?

thanks.

Is there a way I could make the browser automatically focus the address bar whenever I open a new window with a custom URL set? I have an extension that both clears the address bar and sets the cursor focus to the address bar, allowing me to type my query as soon as I open a new tab, but it does not work for new windows.

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. I have a Logitech - G502 Hero gaming mouse that, when used with Chrome, automatically mapped 2 buttons on it to Page Back and Page Forward. In Firefox, those buttons now invariably start the locked scrolling function.

Is there a way to change the mouse shortcuts so they function like they did in Chrome?

Whenever I try to load my investment company website (wealthscape.com/*****) I get a message that says this is not a supported browser. Yet when I look at their list of supported browsers I find Firefox 78 for Windows 10 listed. My Firefox is always up-to-date, currently at version 82.0.2. The page will load in Edge (which I refuse to use), I don't have nor want any other browser on my computer. Is there an answer to this somewhere? If I can't fix this I will just move my investments to another company--problem solved (hopefully I won't have to do that).

I am using firefox on a Windows 10 Home desktop that is up to date. About 8 to 12 months ago, firefox stopped autologin to my outlook.com account. It had probably worked for several years previously. Since then I have tried several times to reinstall firefox with no success. This was probably my last attempt.
