since the latest upgrade, firefox is not playing any video. I tried unchecking the 'use hardware when available' and tried checking the 'play drm content' but I am still getting the following message: Your browser does not currently recognise any of the formats available.

Youtube reports that firefox has no plugin for h.264 - see attached screenshot.

I am on fedora 29, is there a library that I need to install?

Video DownloadHelper 7.3.5 no longer detects videos ("No media to process in the current tab.") at several websites where I've downloaded from previously with no problem. So far VDH recognizes only YouTube. I'm using Firefox 65.0.2 (64-bit) (updated today, 3.7.2019). The companion app: VdhCoApp 1.2.4 is installed. It's really disheartening. How do I fix this, please?

All of a sudden, I got a notice that my Adblock Plus addon was disabled and needed to be updated. I went to their Web site and tried to download it again, but got a message that it was "corrupt". Following their Help, I found this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/unable-install-add-ons-extensions-or-themes?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=unable-install-add-ons-or-extensions#w_corrupt-extension-files

I deleted the files mentioned, which were all extensions.json plus one extensions.ini, then closed and re-opened Firefox and again tried to download and got the same message.

I've been noticing that Firefox becomes very laggy and unresponsive on my high-end desktop, and Windows task manager reveals that a FF thread often takes 3-5 GB of memory that increases over time. This does not show up in FF's task manager.

I haven't been able to identify the cause of this, and it's weird that 3-5 GB of memory will slow things down that much when I still have ~8 GB unused memory.

This is on a pretty fresh Win10 install.

I have tried to attach my about:memory report below, but in case it doesn't go through, I also hosted it on GDrive. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qyGQShX78PculdEmacm8hO9jqn4E1GWh

Can anyone please help me resolve this issue?

My old macbook air crashed but thankfully the hard drive was salvaged. I am trying to transfer bookmarks from the old hard drive onto my new computer. Unfortunately I never created an account through Mozilla so I didn't have a profile. Is there any way to find these bookmarks from the old hard drive? I've taken the steps to try to find them, but I don't even have a folder called "profile" where it seems the bookmarks should be saved. I have posted a screen shot of what is in my Mozilla folder.

First of all, I want to say that actually getting to the point of being to ask a question here is ridiculous. I know that you're trying to avoid repeat questions, but Jesus Christ. Have a look at Stack Overflow to see how to do it correctly.

So I'm having an issue where some images that I save are being corrupted. This started happening with the most recent version of Firefox.

Image in question:

Here is the above image saved from different browsers. The one saved from Firefox is corrupt.

I have my options set to show my saved Pocket articles on the homepage. But they don't show up.

I also have options set so that my history is deleted every time I close Firefox, BUT under settings I made it so that it will not erase/delete "active logins" and "site preferences". And for safe measure, I also added www.getpocket.com to my list of "Allowed" cookies.

Yet if I close Firefox and open it again, I still get a blank Homepage. And when I go to Pocket's website, I'm logged out and must sign in again, despite my settings. And even if I sign in again and look at my Homepage, my saved Pocket articles STILL don't show up. So what is preventing this?

Thinking about ditching Pocket altogether if I can't resolve this...
