I have embedded a video using HTML5 using the mp4, webm, and ogg formats.

In Firefox the video poster displays as do the native controls. When the video is clicked on (either on the poster or the play button on the controls) the poster disappears to be replaced with the first frame of the video. However the video then fails to play.

If i right click over the video and select play it plays fine, similarly if i then click the pause button it pauses, the play button still does not work though.

The video plays in all other browsers that i have tested in without an issue.

Am running the latest version of Firefox (32.0.2) on three devices: a PC laptop, a Macbook, and an iMac. On each and every machine, cannot sign in to Firefox Sync. Every time I receive a "connection interrupted" error. Yesterday I set up two Firefox Sync accounts (one for me and one for my husband), but today I can't use either of them because we can't sign in. What can we do?

Clicking 'Show all History' in Library only offer 'Today' and 'Older than 6 months'. What about less than 6 months?

Seems other people have written about this.

I'm using Firefox 39. Clicking 'Show All History' in the drop down menu only shows 'Older than 6 months' and 'Today'. Clearly this isn't 'All History'! Why doesn't it show anything between 'Today' and 'Older than 6 months'? Is this a bug?

Today I downloaded the add-on 'Places Maintenance' 1.3.1, and ran it. It has made no difference.

I hope you can help.

When I clink on a link in an email, how can I get Firefox not to open to my home page and the link from my email? It always opens 2 pages. One is the link page and one is my homepage. It usually opens the homepage first. I close that page and the 'link' will open up. I really get tired of having to close the homepage before I can view the linked page. Thanks, cozzz

I am trying to download a Certificate under View My Certificates. There is none there. I get a prompt in the process that says:

This personal certificate can't be installed because you do not own the corresponding private key which was created when the certificate was requested.

How do I find or own the corresponding private key?

Hello everyone:

I got this macbook

13" early 2008 Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Graphics Intel GMA X3100 144 MB Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)

Firefox 39.04

I have personas and classic theme restorer installed so I can have the tabs not be on top, and a non moving squirrel picture on the frame. I got the computer used last year, maybe the year before, It's been lightning fast, but I use it for business social media stuff, 30 twitter pages open to monitor hashtag pages. while loading other pages I get script slow errors,

The computer gets HOT the fan is beginning to make noise because it always runs. Even if I open one ONE ebay page (in FF) and let it sit there, it will within 20 seconds stop responding and get HOT. As I write this on safari the machine is running fine fan at slow idle, room temp 82 Humid no A/C.

The computer was wiped, new OS NEW FF 39 new when I set up this machine. When using FF along with Safari or Photoshop 12 I think, they can all be on and working, but FF will freeze, the others will work, and the fan runs so fast it lifts the machine off the table.

I have read and tried so many of the message board fixes, including the about:config tell the flash player not to load in each page repeatedly if not used, no help. I take a screen pic, and then restore it to original if it don't work. Something about a plug-in container. Activity monitor also says FF uses more than 450MB ram Really….? Normal….? 1 tab…? Well safari has 418 MB …..

Done some of the fix it's on the FF help pages, turned off plugins safe-mode still spins up the turbines. Not installed a new FF as there does not seen to be a real fix in doing that from what I have read.

Had this machine for a while, use to work fine, lightning fast, no fan unless watching a movie, now I don't even try using youtube…..

No other add-ons readers, tool bars etc. installed. Ever. I basically do the same thing all the time. Also for some reason even though flash is always manually updated, videos even GIF's on twitter now place an error in the center of the post "your browser does not support video playback"

How can the dam thing use more than 100% of the cpu resources anyway……? WTF ???? Using some of the CPU from tomorrow ????? Some kind of payday loan FF has for the CPU ????

Load_payday_CPU_firefox_interest-rate_120%_  :true  ??? Where is it ?


I can load other info if anyone gives me an idea where to get it terminal, activity monitor, air traffic control, what have you.


Thanks.

My MacPro (note: not MacBookPro) is 10.7.5. Therefore, (according to your instructions where I first started to try updating my Firefox) I cannot update my Firefox (because updating is not available for 10.7.5 but only for 10.9 and up) but must install (I quote) " a secure version of Firefox." Unfortunately, your instructions do not tell me where I can find a secure version of Firefox. I'll keep looking but a hint would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

For years I've used Firefox and the AllAboutBirds.com website with no trouble. A few weeks ago Firefox started freezing up whenever I used the website. The website is for bird identification and has videos, sound clips, comparative photos, etc. FIrefox usually doesn't freeze up immediately when the website opens, only after I've clicked a link or two -- but it doesn't seem to matter which links. I just updated Adobe Flash and that does not help. As noted above, I can use the website with Safari, but I prefer to use Firefox. This does not happen on any other website I've visited.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks!
