Hi, I seem to have an issue whereby if i am playing a video on youtube(for example) and then switch tabs or new windows, to lets say twitter(for example). When a video is played on twitter, it will take control of the audio. So the audio slider on a twitter video, will control the audio on the YouTube video. This leads to several problems. For example, if i want to listen to a song on youtube, while watching a video muted or at a lower volume on twitter, i lose sound from the other tab. When i close the tab, i would have to go back to youtube(which audio slider still think its playing) and mute and unmute the audio on their player.

On version 82 Window. Has been existing for a few versions. have tried upgrading to 83.beta with no joy.

Hello all Please someone kindly help me:

I need to customize the lovely Firefox for our environment, I'm making a list to do it once and make a backup to mass restore to all PCs, so I need description of these commands to set in "about:config":

1st is there a full description list of config commands inside "about:config"?

2nd, I only have SSDs and don't want FF to cache any file on disk, need to cache them all on memory (have 64GB of 3200 MHz memory, so faster to store on RAM and save SSDs from intensive read/writes, what items shall I set in "about:config"?

3rd I found an article on howtogeek to make the privacy settings safe, setting all items here are safe? devtools.onboarding.telemetry.logged = false toolkit.telemetry.updatePing.enabled = false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.telemetry = false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.telemetry = false browser.ping-centre.telemetry = false toolkit.telemetry.bhrPing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.firstShutdownPing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.hybridContent.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.newProfilePing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun = false toolkit.telemetry.shutdownPingSender.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.unified = false toolkit.telemetry.updatePing.enabled = false toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun = false toolkit.telemetry.unified = false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled = false devtools.onboarding.telemetry.logged = false toolkit.telemetry.bhrPing.enabled = false datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled = false datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled = false datareporting.sessions.current.clean = true datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled = false datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled = false datareporting.sessions.current.clean = true

As the title says, a couple of days ago I noticed that all progress bars in YouTube thumbnails have disappeared. The "Watched" text is also gone. I tried clean reinstall, removing all add-ons, but it did not help. Just to check, I installed Chrome - everything visible (see image - FF left, Chrome right), which would suggest that something is up with Firefox. I also check the history settings on YouTube, everything is turned on, and I see viewing progress in thumbnails when I'm on the history settings page, but not on "normal" YouTube.

I would appreciate any sort of help or advice. My life doe snot depend on this feature, but I really like it and it helps navigate YouTube more efficiently.

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?

Hello,

In Windows 8, after updating to Firefox 83.0 64-bit, when I open any web page, the following error message appears:

X Display driver stopped responding and has recovered Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

And then:

X Application has been blocked from accessing Graphics hardware Application Firefox.exe has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware.

In device manager, I updated the driver and it stated the driver is up to date.

Should I revert back to 82.0.3?

Best regards

Hello, we have web application installed in internal network. We are using it for many years and we are installing upgrades and security updates (It is not public application so I can't give you the name). It have possibility to generate certificate request and import signed certificate so we are doing this for many years, with success. We have local Certificate Authority and of course, root and intermediate certificates are imported in FF cert store. After last App and FF update I'm receiving Security Warning (screen shots uploaded). This appears in several FF versions. Same app is 'secure' in Chrome and IE (screen shot from Chrome). How can I solve this problem?

Thanks in advance. Miodrag

I am using Firefox Nightly on Linux.

I have two M171 Logitech mouses. Their scroll wheel works fine everywhere except firefox (chrome works fine, for instance). In firefox, I need to press the scroll wheel down, keep it down and scroll. Then, it scrolls. But just freely scrolling with the mouse does not scroll the page, it does nothing. This happens in every web page. Interestingly, if I use the scroll wheel in the popup of an addon (for instance in the tab listing of a group in Simple Tab Groups), it works there. But not in web pages or the sidebar. I have also tried entering safe mode, but it didn't help.

Did anyone have this issue too?

MS has begun 'grabbing' my FF browser - does this about once a week. It closes my tabs, kills my search engine and substitutes bing. This, I assume, is malware from MS and may have come in with the new Windows 10:

First - I want to make Mozilla aware this is happening.

Second - how can I prevent those bastards from grabbing the browser and making me re-install my tabs - all this takes about a half hour?

Thanks,

I use Firefox Developer Edition (84.0b4) on macOS and pretty much never restart Firefox. Because of this I frequently miss updates. Chrome shows an update badge on the menu icon in the toolbar.

Is this built into Firefox aswell? I couldn't find anything like this and there doesn't seem to be an addon for this either.

I am looking for the exact site we need to access to perform auto updates to Firefox DE on Windows 10 64-bit v. 1909. We have numerous security precautions in place and we currently can't access the auto updates area. Our security does not allow us to open the entire downloads area, so we are looking for the exact URL that is required for auto updates to function. We are also wondering if it is possible to have the auto updates point to a local server. This would allow us to bypass giving the full access to the website URL and just point customers locally within our own environment.

Thanks.
