I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Firefox not playing audio through default device

Running Firefox 83 (claims it's up to date) on Windows 10 Pro N.

Recently Firefox has decided to play the audio from the likes of Facebook videos and YouTube through the speakers, despite:

  1. the headphones being the default device
  2. restarting the computer
  3. Chrome and VLC media player both sending audio to the USB headphones.

I disabled the speakers, which did result in FF sending the audio through the USB headphones. But . . . when I re-enabled the speakers Firefox reverted to them. Mid-play of a video! This even though the default audio device was still the USB headphones.

I searched for guidance, but the mentions I have found related to posts going back several years (FF 36 anyone).

That other applications correctly recognise the appropriate audio device suggests strongly that it's a Firefox issue, rather than an OS issue.

I really would prefer to not have to manually disable the speakers. Previously everything would simply switch from headphones to speakers when I unplugged the headphones, and back again when I plugged the headphones back in. This is how it should be.

Windows10でFireFoxを使用しています。

EXCEL ONLINEでセルの編集をすると、3つの編集時の問題が発生します。

これは、FireFoxで発生しますが、Edge/Chromeでは正常です。

1.[全角/半角]キーを押すと、セルの内容が消える。 2.カーソルが点滅していない状態で日本語入力すると、文字化けする。(1文字目にアルファベットが残る) 3.範囲指定して[DEL]キーで消去すると、最初のセル以外は消去出来ない。

私は、EXCEL ONLINEとFireFoxのどちらの不具合なのか、判断出来ません。

Hi,

I'm a paranoid guy so i tend to investigate anything and everything weird that happens to me.

Yesterday, i was browsing a movie directory looking for a movie to watch outside of major platforms (Netflix). The site was full of ads and other crap, my AV was ringing the bells, blocking lots of potentially malicious links.

Suddenly, i got prompted by Windows Defender to allow firefox.exe to communicate on public networks too. Private networks were allowed already, but somehow it wanted access over public networks too.

It looked exactly like this : https://content.invisioncic.com/Mmalware/monthly_2018_03/image.png.2897f90ed89aa34691c24143e249ab12.png

I am wondering if i could've been exploited by some sort of 0-day, as FireFox security is weaker now, we might see more broad attacks on people.

How could this happen and why would FireFox suddenly want to add new incoming rule?

I have the latest version of FireFox for many days, haven't installed anything new or updated anything. It happened just like that. Also, i was calling with a friend via Messenger which uses WebRTC, but we've been calling like that for past week or so, so don't have a clue why did it happen now...

Should i be concerned?

Let me know, please.

Firefox is having issues with WebGl on my Ubuntu 20.04 and therefore fails on several HTML5 pages (eg. https://www.wirple.com/bmark/). This issue is not present in other browsers so I chalk it up as an issue with firefox rather than my driver.

I am using NVIDIA driver 455, which works best on my machine by all benchmarks.

Here is the snapshot of my about:support page relevant sections:

  • WebGL 1 Driver WSI Info -
  • WebGL 1 Driver Renderer WebGL creation failed: * WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false restricts context creation on this system. * Exhausted GL driver options.
  • WebGL 1 Driver Version -
  • WebGL 1 Driver Extensions -

GPU #1 Active Yes Description GeForce 940M/PCIe/SSE2 Vendor ID 0x10de Device ID GeForce 940M/PCIe/SSE2 Driver Vendor nvidia/unknown Driver Version 455.45.1.0 RAM 0


I am also unable to find " AllowWebgl2:false" and "WebglAllowWindowsNativeGl:false" in my about:preferences.

Below is the console output when this error happens on an HTML5 game (works perfectly on other browsers)

I often need to print or download pdf presentation files from online sources which I used to do on Safari (I use imac) On Safari, the pdf presentation automatically rotates on the print page, so then I can use "save as PDF" on portrait and everything looks good. (then I just rotate the file to landscape on Preview or PDFexpert to read the presentation).

When I try to do the same on Firefox, on the print page, the presentation does not rotate and remain landscape. The problem is, when I choose landscape to print, then the presentation is not centered on the page and skewed to one side so I get much wider margin on one side.

Is there a way to fix this issue?

I appreciate any advice or input!

I have a new MacBook Pro 2020 with MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1. I have made Firefox the default browser by going to the Apple menu and choosing System Preferences then choosing General. I have also made Firefox the default browser by going to the Firefox menu and choosing Preferences then General. On that screen it says that Firefox is not my default browser and there is a box to click on that says "Make Default". I click on it then click on "use Firefox", but when I click on links in my email Safari still opens. Any suggestions.

I am unable to sync into my firefox account. It says, "The confirmation email we sent to *email address* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." According to other threads, one is to wait 24 hours before trying to log in again. It has been more than 24 hours, and I am still unable to access my account.
