firefox wrongly flags video as geoblocked

Hello Mozilla support

I wanted to view the video at this site -

https://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation/dokus/videos/die-recyclingluege-video-102.html

(The site is German public TV)

Firefox (my default browser) says the video is geoblocked outside Germany, and my DNS proxy will not unblock it.

I tried again with Chrome browser, no problem, the video is not blocked, didn't need the DNS proxy.

Could this be a firefox problem? It seems bizarre - a small proportion of videos from the site are in fact geoblocked, most are available internationally. And always previously, whenever I encountered a blocked video, my DNS proxy would unblock it. But not for this video.

Any ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks, Fraidy . (Firefox 101.0.1 64 bit Windows 7)

I had a partial crash of Firefox browser where some windows with multiple tabs closed. I believe it was caused by my processor overheating. After correcting my processor overheating issue and restarting, the remaining windows that were open before the reboot restored as the previous session but the windows and tabs that crashed did not recover. Would those be backed up anywhere?

So, here's how CenturyLink responded to my recent "cry for help" (as Rick Astley sang . . .).

I am sorry to hear of the issues you faced trying to find an email address for CenturyLink. There is a known issue with Firefox not working with our website. The best way to access our website is by using Google Chrome and making sure the pop up blockers are not activated. Unfortunately, as the issue is with the Firefox browser, there is nothing we can do to fix that issue.

Well, guess it's time . . . after all these years . . . to rethink my interest in Firefox, eh?

I had issues with Firefox and reinstalled it. My monitor was cracked so bought a new monitor. Now web pages don't load properly. If on a message board or looking at emails, lines separating each post or email are missing. This happens throughout the web. separating lines, boxes are missing. It's like 90% of the page loads and then some parts don't. I've tried all the troubleshooting answers from Mozilla. Nothing works. Never had this issue for years of using Firefox. All of a sudden, web pages all look different. It can't be the monitor because the computer tells the monitor what to display. So something must have changed when I reinstalled Firefox. I've added a picture below of how the Ticketmaster page loads. It would always show each individual seat. Now most of the empty seats have disappeared along with the line separating each row. Makes it almost impossible to decipher the webpage. The blue dots are seats still for sale. The empty rows should also have dots representing each and every seat, but now only about 50% of the seats actually display. Anyone have any ideas on what is going wrong? Driving me absolutely crazy. Ruined my ability to surf the web. Every page is missing something. Usually separating lines. Any ideas?

FF 101 Blocks XML file backups saved from my router.

My software router isn't configured with a certificate so when I log in to router settings via its webGUI using my local domain IP address 192.168.*.* I get and accept the insecure message and can edit the router settings. However when I save the router configuration to my hard drive I get the file name placeholder with zero bytes. Obviously that's bad news if you go back to the XML file and find zero bytes. I tried adding 192.168.*.* to FF site exceptions. That gets the Webgui past the warning messages but the XML backup file the router wants to save is still zero bytes. This doesn't happen with Chrome.

What can I do?

Thanks

Hi, Using Windows 7(32bit), Firefox v101.0.1 (32bit) most updated at this time. Some days before the URL "https://web.whatsapp.com" was just working fine with Firefox (can be seen as bookmark in screenshot), but today it stopped loading at all. No error message, no QR code, nothing, only a deep silence. As a way to troubleshoot the problem, I tries to disable Avast, connect to a VPN etc. but with no luck. I thought it might be a problem with the site so decided to give a try to another browser. Downloaded and installed the Chrome and the required page is just fine in Chrome. Don't know why it's no loading in Firefox. No linked devices there on my mobile phone, so have to link my PC as a new device, but no QR code to scan. Firefox is my favorite and default browser for a long time and I don't want to lose it anyway. Please help. Thanks.

Hello.

When I visit Marketwatch* on Firefox in full screen mode on Windows machine, there is a huge gap of blank space on the page and I have to scroll dwn a long way to read the rest of the page. It's like the columnar data is being stacked on the page and not dsplayed side-by-side, as it should be. This doesn't happen in Brave, Chrome, Iron, or MS browsers. On those browsers, the information is placed correctly side-by-side, and not stacked above or below each other on the page. (i say "columnar" to describe issue appearance, not as a known refernce to the cause of the issue.)

PROBLEM FIREFOX:

                            column 2 data
                            column 2 data
                            column 2 data

column 1 data column 1 data column 1 data column 1 data

CORRECT BROWSER DISPLAY: column 1 data column 2 data column 1 data column 2 data column 1 data column 2 data column 1 data

The work-around is minimizing Firefox just slightly smaller than full screen, and all of the page items appear where they should on the page. I'm using other browsers because of this. thx, rick

  • BTW, I don't benefit in any way from mentioning this website with this issue; it's sincerely a probelm with this website that I use frequently.
