Using FF v 83.0, Windows 7 Pro, ethernet connected to router, download speed over 80Mb (pay Comcast for 250-300!), trying to stream content I paid for before it expires. The video is a little choppy but the audio is mostly garbled. Previous streamed events a few months ago with previous firefox versions played fine. Tried a mac with OSX 10.10 (similar vintage to Windows 7) and that plays fine on Firefox v78.5.0esr. Here is the link to the video service:

https://watch.eventive.org/nhdocs2020/play/5fc81468e2268200a56e38ec?m=1

Is there some bug with v83 and Windows 7 or some setting I can change for better streaming? I already tried changing the performance settings but it did not help.

Thanks

[http://about:preferences#general ( hopefully) this is "Your browser is being managed by your organization."] Looking at my options today, I noticed that while I was on the general page, I noticed this phrase above the GENERAL heading, and I was surprised, about what this meant. when I clicked the option box that was next to the phrase mentioned, I was taken to a place I didn't recognize and found the page to be nothing like I had seen before. So hopefully the screen print with print our for someone viewing it, and I can get some answers to what I should do next. Thank you Mike

Can I lock the home page in Firefox?

Every time a Windows Update happens, my home page gets changed to Microsoft's awful Bing search page. It's annoying enough having to change it back on one computer, but I use several PC's so things become especially annoying.

Is there a way to prevent my home page from being changed without my consent?

Updated to Firefox 83 and now my browsing history in 'History' and in 'Show All History' will not delete despite my preference settings being correct and having tried deletion in all possible ways. Something is wrong because after I have clicked 'Clear Recent History' or closed Firefox with 'Delete on closing' selected, the preference page shows a change in the kb being used to store history, yet the browsing history has not been cleared. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or let Firefox know?

Using the website crave.ca, the browser fails to play the next video in the series and shows the error: "This video cannot be played because of a technical error.(Error Code: 202000)"

This error happens on Firefox, but not other browsers like Chrome. It happens both on Windows 10 and Fedora Workstation 33.

Looking at the jwplayer docs, it gives a bit more info, but not much (https://developer.jwplayer.com/jwplayer/docs/jw8-player-errors-reference)

Unknown error. This is generally caused by an unknown XHR error or an exception thrown while parsing the content; for more context we recommend checking the source error.

So, it sounds like a site coding error, but it seems strange that would be the case when other browsers are working fine. Any ideas how to get this working in Firefox?

My brother and I have separate Firefox accounts. He stays with me a lot for weeks or even months at a time. He's not an avid smart phone user. He prefers a desktop PC just as I do. The big problem is we can't switch accounts. All his passwords and web sites are linked to his account, the same as mine is to mine. If I log out of my Firefox and he attempts to log into his, we get a warning that all synced items will be merged. We end up not switching. This is very frustrating for him since he doesn't remember his sign-in's. He relies on his Firefox account for that. Is there any way around this? We can do it with Google and his AOL accounts. Anybody have any ideas?

I have run across a few websites that result in "Secure Connection Failed" when I try to go to them. The last site on which this happened is the following. Using the shorter URL "https://e.ab.advancedbionutritionals.com" also shows the problem.

What I see on the error message page is this:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to e.ab.advancedbionutritionals.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I can get to this site using other browsers like Chrome and Safari. What bothers me here is the text "Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s)". This makes me believe that Firefox is not supporting an encryption algorithm, which other browsers do. The question is: why does Firefox not support the same set of encryption algorithms, which other browsers do?

I've tried several ways to make Firefox my default browser and no luck. Most of the processes indicate I have to click on web browser (currently shows Internet Explorer) and I should see Firefox in the list of possible browsers. My issue, I don't see it in the list. I see two entries for Microsoft Edge, and one each for Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.... and that's it. So, how do I proceed with my issue... any help will be greatly appreciated...

By accident I closed Firefox, and after it had restarted all my tabs were gone, despite the fact that I have "restore previous" set in my preferences

I would like to hear If there is a way to save these tabs outside FF and how to do that

Hey everyone,

since some time now, Firefox on my laptop won't load any websites. When I click on on of my bookmarks or type in a URL, it first starts loading forever and eventually gives me the "Connection has timed out" error. This happens for every website, but only in Firefox. Other browsers like Chrome or Edge do not have this problem. I re-installed Firefox and deleted all files related to it manually (in appdata and programms folders) to make sure everything is gone. After a fresh re-install, it worked for a while, but then stopped working again. I don't know what caused this. I have also tried every step explained on this website already: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can

My Firefox version is 83.0 and my Windows version is Windows 10 Home, Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363.

I would greatly appreciate your help! Thanks, Tim
