Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

Hi everyone! Since my update of Firefox (Ver. 76.0) on May 6, my Netflix streaming doesn't work any more. I use the Firefox Browser Ver. 76 on elementary Linux (Ubuntu 18.04). Until May 5 everything worked fine. I changed my browser to "Chrome" now, for watching Netflix. With Chrome everything works fine. Maybe someone can tell me, why Firefox 76 refuses streaming netflix.

Thanks for a helpful answer. C. Wolfgang

When I use Zoom (the meetings app) through Firefox, the Breakout Rooms facility is non-existent. The tool is not available. Yet it IS there when I use Zoom for meetings via Google Chrome browser. How come I can't use it via Firefox? Or how DO I access it?

As the Title suggests.

My Add-Ons are all removed from my Toolbar and stop functioning whenever I set my History settings to "Never Remember History."

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the Add-On's, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox. But none of this works.

I want to be able to use my Add-On's AND have Firefox not remember my history. It used to work before, but now it just won't let me.

Any suggestions?

Guten Tag Zusammen,

ich habe vor einiger Zeit einen bs.to Crawler erstellt, der soweit auch ganz gut funktioniert hat. Nach einem Firefox Update triggert nun aber das Google Recaptcha nicht mehr. Mein Python Script drückt nur den Button (siehe Bild): https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html

Auch wenn ich manuell versuche, den Button zu drücken passiert nichts. Mit Google Chrome ist es das selbe. Wenn ich allerdings den normalen Firefox benutze, gehts.

Wenn man einen Blick in die Netzwerkanalyse riskiert, merkt man, dass dort auch nur ein Bild geladen wird (siehe Bild 2): https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html . Normalerweise sieht die Netzwerkanalyse so aus: https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html

Sprich, ich denke das ein click event nicht gestartet wird. Wenn ich es allerdings manuell per JavaScript versuche, komme ich auch nicht weiter. Ältere Firefox Versionen bzw. Geckodriver hab ich auch schon versucht, jedoch ohne Erfolg. Aber auch wenns da gehen würde, wäre das ja keine wirkliche Lösung. Hat jemand von euch eine Idee?

Vielen Dank schonmal!

I use the latest version of Firefox. I have multiple add-in's. Google is the search engine used. Firefox has 98 stored passwords. However, Gmail does not work at all. The main screen icon to it, will not even copy the path to the top task bar. The same is now happening for mu university log-in to Outlook. What can I do? I am forced to use Chrome and I hate all Google/Microshit etc programs. What with all the add-on's (dwhelper) doesnt seem to much good now, Firefox Focus etc etc is there an Idiots Guide to using. BTW, Ive been using computers since the 80's when I had to write all my own routines myself on the 'green screens' long before windows ever existed!

Have had no software updates or anything so at a total loss. Fortunatley I can still access emails etc. just a pain havingto shut down one browzer and open another to perform one task.

The 76.01 update of Firefox has completely broken the audio function in my browser. Youtube and Yahoo Finance specifically. I have not checked further. Yes I know Windows 7 is not supported by Microsoft, but Firefox has claimed that it would support Windows 7 indefinitely. Yesterday when I opened Firefox a message said that audio and video might not work if I did not have DRM enabled. I checked and saw that I had DRM enabled, but audio did not work. A button in the message said Enable DRM, I clicked the button anyway. No audio. I restarted Firefox, no audio. I restarted my computer, no audio. I opened Chrome and everything is working fine. I did not even okay this update. I have my preferences set to NOT automatically update. it seems like Firefox is ignoring my preferences. Firefox should provide an instant downgrade to the previous version that supported audio. In the past I have downgraded a few times until things were working smoothly, but it's a headache. Now I understand Firefox makes it even harder to do that. I may just switch to Chrome permanently.

Don't know if this is connected to my previous question about being unable to login to bt email. After refreshing Firefox, left click on a link opens it in same tab instead of separate tab. In options, Open links in tabs instead of new windows and When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately are both checked. This is happening on my pc and laptop. I know I can centre wheel click or right click and open in new tab but why has behavior of years stopped working. I am fast losing faith in Firefox.
