I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

Hi Folks,

I've recently started working with a Mac (Catalina) and found an oddity that only seems to apply to Firefox. I set up keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between my macbook display and an external monitor using the in-built keyboard options to add shortcuts.

These target the Window>Move to [DISPLAY NAME] menu entries at the top of the screen. For some reason Firefox windows don't have this menu entry and therefore my shortcuts don't move Firefox windows between my screens.

I've included a couple screenshots to demonstrate. It's not a huge deal but I wonder if it's an issue with my machine or just a quirk of Firefox?

Hi, first of thanks for reading and possibly responding.

The issue I am having has been going on for a few days. In websites where youtube video's are embedded if I try and play the video on the said site it will load and display an error message An error occurred. Please try again later. If I visit the video on youtube, link provided in the video itself, then it plays just fine. Error is not restricted to one site but anything that embeds youtube videos.

I have also come across some strange youtube.com issues, when I am on the main website you get the thumbnails of video's but no time duration are displayed in the thumbnail, neither are the 3 dots where you can have one of the videos removed (not a big deal and maybe this was implemented a while ago I don't know tbh). When I play a video, as in visit the video page on youtube the side bar videos sometimes do and sometimes don't display time duration.

Please check attached image to see what I mean. Left is without said timecodes, right is what it almost should be.

What addons do I use: Ublock Origin is the only one worth noting but even without it the weird thing still occurs. I don't use any plug ins that correspond with youtube.

I am using the latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Things I have tried thus far to resolve it: - make sure Firefox is up to date - try with and without addblocker (Ublock) - remove Adobe flash entirely - refresh Firefox and clear all data and cookies 9tried this I think 3 times now, no change) - looked through older posts with similar issues but most links regarding html5 on youtube were 404 and sometimes the solution stated things like 'cause by some video helped addon' which I do not use or updating Flash

Am I the only one with this issue?

Most current Firefox hangs and will not open Youtube from email links or from direct entry into the address field. Microsoft edge has no problem but Firefox is my default browser. Prior to the last Firefox update I installed a Firefox add on that allowed me to download Youtube videos, however it was not installed by the last Firefox update. Firefox has no problem opening and playing Bitchute video's. Can anyone help ?

Hey firefox community,

I have an issue where certain add-ons are not loading their icons (greyed out), and after a computer shutdown, or simply closing the window, the icons don't seem to stay in the overflow menu (or the place where you can store addons if you don't want them on the toolbar or the overflow menu). my only option to be able to use the extension is to "re-enable" the extension from the add-on menu.

I've read somewhere on a support thread that it may have something to do with adblockers, and although I do have adguard, I'm not 100% sure if that's the issue, as I tried disabling adguard when loading firefox, and I seemed to only be able to load the add-ons correctly once, but not again (to be fair, not a lot of testing went into this hypothesis or test).

if there is some kinda issue with adguard, I would love to know what I need to do to solve this issue, and if its something else, I would also love to know what else I would need to do, short of a clean install of firefox or something similar, as I have a few add-ons with custom settings, and resetting all of that would be a pain to redo.

thanks for your help.

PS, any additional info needed can be sent over, just may take some time

Hi,

This is my first post here so let me know if I did anything wrong.

So my problem is: my camera has been undetected by Firefox for a while now, without any change in the use of my browser. I've wanted to use it on Google Duo, on an online classes website, on a website where you can use your camera to try on glasses before ordering, and nothing... The latter was my last attempt and the only message I got from the website was "your camera is not detected". I really have no idea where to check for anything wrong on this topic, it works perfectly on other software (like Discord), so I guess it does not come from the camera itself. I checked the authorizations in Firefox, nothing special there either.

Any idea and/or tips for this kind of troubleshooting?

Thanks a lot in advance!
