Hello,I have Windows XP 32 bit with service pack 3 and Firefox 52.9.1 ESR browser. Now that adobe flash player is history I can't play videos online that are not on youtube. I can still watch youtube videos.

Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this old system that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old system but it still does the job.

Thanks.

Sometimes my wifi connection is choppy (darn that microwave popcorn!) and I hate it when I'm in the middle of reading the links in Drudge and it reloads....sometimes shifting the layout a bit or just hanging while it waits for some adserver to respond.

Is there any way to stop this from happening? Tried Freezing the tab. And for some reason, firefox is not preventing this page from automatically reloading like it does others.

Any ideas?

Need to copy browsing history and bookmarks to another installation of Firefox

I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

I’m using Firefox 52.9.0 on Windows XP 32bit system and looking for help to continue playing website video tubes now that Adobe Flash Player is going away: 1. Is there a replacement ‘plug-in’ that I can install to continue playing videos on websites with flash video content? How to install and use? 2. Have noticed many of these sites moving to HTML5 or H.264 format for video tube stream, but my browser will not play these. Is there a compatible HTML5 and/or H.264 player that will enable my browser to play these? Or other way to enable play on my existing version of Firefox? How to install and use? Thank You!

Ever notice that the sites that insist on the user disabling Ad Blocker to continue browsing are the ones that run 20 flash ads at the same time? Not to mention the half GB of content it seems that they download on every click?

Here's just one egregious example: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7919337/Last-flight-Wuhan-Everyone-wearing-masks.html

When I disabled my Ad Blocker, CPU usage went to 98% and the page froze my browser.

How do you guys deal with sites like these? Do they realize that this "heavy-handed" approach is counterproductive?
