After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

TLS handshake for minutes, then fail. Computer restart always fixes

This started when I installed V68 on my Mac (I'm on 68.0.2 now, Mac is 10.12.6). About half the time when I start my computer in the morning, when I try to browse *any* site (http or https), I get the TLS handshake attempt that lasts for several minutes, then connection fails.

BUT, *unlike other posts with this problem*, if I restart my computer (restarting FF does not fix it), all is well. A detail (not sure if relevant): the pages my (Comcast) server has local copies of, that is, my home page and a couple of very frequently accessed pages, I can access, but any other site, regardless of http or https, results in the TLS handshake "freeze 'n fail."

  • Edit: I just lost then, 10 mins later, regained my Comcast (internet, mail, cable). I did not re-start computer or FF, but when signal returned, I got the dreaded TLS Handshake Freeze 'N Fail. Again, computer restart let me come here to report.

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

I am using Firefox version 68.0.1 on my laptop with Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Browser is Google.uk Every time I start Firefox it gives two homepages instead of one. This means if I start typing something too quickly - some of the type goes on the first homepage and some on the second ! I find this very annoying.

Hello,

I have a trouble with font rendering on one specific website - https://www.checkpoint.com.

Text on this site looks quite ugly (see font01.png).

But if I open "Web Developer" -> "Inspector" -> "Fonts" -> "All fonts on page", then I can see the text renderred correctly in the preview field (see font02.png).

So text uses "DIN WXX Regular" font, but I do not understand, why Firefox cannot render it on the web page in the same manner as in the Developer tools?

Any clue how to fix it?

Browser: Firefox 68.2.0esr (64-bit) OS: Debian Bullseye

Hola que tal, hace 2 meses me mude de chrome a firefox en mis 3 computadoras, linux, mac, (windows 10) y iphone X

En windows 10 1903 es donde apenas e instalado firefox, pero me esta dando problemas. cada ves que entro a una pagina segura a iniciar sesion me aparece el siguiente error de pestaña.

( Uy. Tu pestaña ha fallado. ¡Podemos ayudarte!

Selecciona Restaurar esta pestaña para recargar la página. )

En about:crashes no me aparece ningún error.

Al reiniciar en modo seguro funciona muy bien, nada de errores. al volver a modo normal desactivo las 4 extensiones que uso, y desactivo acelarcion por hardware pero el problema siempre sigue.

Ayuda por favor, no quiero empezar a mudarme de nuevo Gracias!!

Hello. I've followed a bunch of suggestions from this Forum and elsewhere, but nothing seems to work. My main Firefox menu is stuck in Japanese as are the context menus and pop ups. Others are in English. I've uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled with English version. All settings (about:config, etc) are set to English, don't have Japanese included as additional language or anywhere else. Help please, it's driving me crazy...

Firefox immediately goes to the crash report dialog about half the time I start it. When this happens it takes up to 15 times restarting it for it to actually start. I've tried a clean install and starting in safe mode but the same thing happens. The most recent crash report ID is bp-a433666b-c733-415f-940a-e29210190805. Can anyone help with this?

Using 68.0.2 in Debian 9.4 Stretch. Originally FF 68.0.2 was installed in my Downloads directory but I moved it to /opt and is still working fine. Since the release of version 69 it has been pestering me asking for an update, even that the automatic update option is checked on. Downloaded 69.0 and again moved to it to /opt. Renamed the 68.0.2 from firefox to firefox 68 and tried to run 69 but it will not respond. Any ideas on how to solve this issue? Thanks.
