I've been watching videos on my Amazon Prime account for months using Firefox without an issue. As a matter of fact I use Firefox exclusively because the quality was better than on Google or Edge. I haven't watched any videos for about a week, busy with other things and decided last night, with the snow, was a good night to watch a video. I clicked the Watch Button as I have for months and the icon went around and around and around. The video never started. I tried 3 more and none of them would play. I called Amazon they had me clear the cache and cookies, and it started to play, I stopped it and said it looked like it was fixed and hung up. Went back to play and the icon went around and around etc. The videos play fine in Google and in Edge no problem with either of those browsers but still not playing in Firefox. I checked and see that Firefox Updated since the last time I watched videos on it. I read some articles that suggested I remove Firefox from my allowed programs through the firewall, then re add it. Did not, no improvement, the videos still will not play. I wasn't sure if their videos were Flash or HTML 5 so updated Flash... nothing they still won't play.

Any other suggestions?

I tried up upload a screenshot showing the date when FF Updated, but it seems it's not working... dated updated says January 9, 2019

Hello. I'd like to request a a feature, that I'd love to see in Mozilla Firefox for desktop (Windows, Mac and Linux). I'd like to have an option to play internet video (especially youtube) in the picture in picture mode. So that it remained displayed on my screen while I do something else. Is there any chance to get it?

I am using Firefox 64 on Mac OS X Mojave. I am using the default dark theme, and whenever I try to open a new tab or window, the browser window flashes white for a fraction of a second. I would like to get rid of this seeing that it is annoying and negates the benefit of using a dark theme. I have tried every solution online involving userChrome/userContent but no solutions have worked (except using a private window). Please advise, thank you.

How to remove close icon from tabs?

I finally gave a newer version of FF a try after sticking with 56.0.2 for a long time. Before I go back to 56 again, how do I get rid of the close icons on the tabs? Or at the very least make it so that only the foreground tab has a close icon.

I got so used to having ONE close icon at right end of my tab bar and now, even after two weeks after leaving FF 56, I'm constantly closing the wrong tab because even background tabs have close icons on them ... and I keep clicking the one at the right end of my tab bar.

I'm on the verge of going back to FF 56 anyway to get back other customization options. Whether or not I can fix this close-icon-on-every-tab issue is going to be the determining factor.

So thanks to your update today I can no longer watch videos via prime or netflix due to a Widevine.Cdm error.

That's fantastic, especially as Microsoft are moving to Chromium, you're really selling your service.

See I'm being totally nice. And not calling you names.

I can't view any Youtube comments using Firefox Quantum version, 64.0.2 (64-bit).

I CAN install and run and out of date Firefox browser, but I've been having PC issues thought maybe running the old browser was the cause of my issues, but it isn't because I'm now using Firefox Quantum 64.0.2 (64-bit), and my PC issues still persist. This problem is unrelated to the problem I am talking about today, which starts below:


The new problem I am having is that a couple of days ago, it just started, no Youtube comments load when I click on a video to watch. If I click on the notification bell, I can read the comments in there, and if I click to watch a video I commented on, if that video has 525 comments, I might be able to see 30 or 40 of those comments.

If I go to www.youtube.com and left click on a video to watch, no comments load. The video loads fine, and I can watch videos. When I scroll down, there is no loading circle, and no comments.

I went to Internet Explorer, and in Youtube, all comments are showing up. On my phone, all comments are showing up. Today I had notifications that some of my previous comments were liked.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1, 32GB RAM, AMD FX-8300, Nvidia GTX 970 4GB GDDR5, on board sound, on board lan. Firefox addons are Adblock Plus and Quick Dial. I was running this version of Firefox just fine, and a couple of days ago, I noticed that the comments aren't showing up. I had both of these addons installed, and comments did show up, now they aren't.

YouTube videos are jerky/choppy on Firefox like frames are being skipped every half a second or so. Audio is fine.

Video and audio are fine on MS Edge.

Are there some settings I need to tweak?

I'm on version 64. I think this is a fairly recent problem but can't be sure.

Thanks, Jim

Session restore showing no previous tabs

Today I tried to restore a Firefox session after a crash and the Session Restore page came up with the restore session button greyed out and the list of tabs to restore is empty.

There is also no option to restore the previous session in the settings drop-down menu.

The next thing I did was check the Mozilla Support forums and found some helpful advice: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1216918 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224948


Based on this advice I went to "sessionstore-backups" in \Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ and backed up the files I found there. I even used ShadowExplorer to find some earlier copies of said files and copied those as well.

So -with Firefox closed- I copied an older recovery.jsonlz4 and replaced the new one with it.

Sadly, when I then open Firefox, the same thing happens. Recovery page with no option to recover, 0 tabs present.


Am I doing something wrong?


P.S. I should add that I simply DO NOT HAVE a restore session option in my drop-down menu. See attached images.

P.P.S. No longer having the option to get the "ask to save and quit" notification when exiting the browser is a travesty. That option should be brought back ASAP. Both for the extra warning before quitting, and to give you the ability to choose whether or not to discard certain tabs.
