I'm in Amazon.com web site I have tried to play a video that I rented on line, but I get a message that reads (Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page) please try again later. which have for the last two days since installing firefox as my net browser. What can I do to improve this or have the components install sooner? any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This is pissing me off so much! I'm working and in the middle of everything I have no other option than to completely restart my browser, which can easily resolve into losing what I was doing, not to mention that it completely kills my workflow. STOP DOING THIS! I don't care what the reason is, you're severely hindering the usage of the app. I will decide when to restart, not the app! I have a fresh start of my system every single day, I'm sure whatever unimportant update it was this time can wait a few hours.

After a subscription cancellation of a firefox software I cannot open or install Firefox. Best Buy Geek Squad tried to fix it remotely and they were not able to fix it. Why would this happen after cancelling a subscription that was making Firefox very slow. Firefox is my preferred browser and I can not use it. My email is [email removed from public] Thank you, Carlos Soto

Firefox selectively removing completed downloads?

I have discovered that if I download my Netflix viewing history (it's a file named "NetflixViewingHistory.csv") then while this file, once completed, remains in the download history for the remainder of the session, when I next restart Firefox it has disappeared (from the Firefox downloads history I mean, it remains on my hard drive). This has happened both times I downloaded that file.

Whereas other completed files I have downloaded remain in the downloads history until I manually clear them.

My question is, why would Firefox automatically remove this specific completed download from history, but not others?

A thought that occurred to me is that maybe Firefox auto-clears completed downloads if it detects that the download page / link is no longer accessible? (And maybe Netflix is creating this file in a temporary location that disappears once the user has downloaded it, unlike a more traditional download where the url path to the download is a perma-link?)

Or is this just an old-fashioned bug and Firefox should not be selectively auto-clearing any specific completed downloads at all? They should all persist until manually cleared? Thanks.
