I can't play video on Netflix.

I get the message "Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later."

I have searched previous threads and tried the suggested fixes but nothing works. I can play Netflix perfectly fine in other browsers I tested.

After firefox updated to 85.0 and added a new printer interface it will not print. everything else still prints fine and even when going back to the system dialog box it still will not print. It acts like it is going to print but nothing prints. I can save it to PDF and print okay but not to my printer directly.

Forms not filling in on most sites with my address info, WIndows 10, Firefox 86 64 bit

There are addresses set up in options and Forms and Autofill. There is a checkmark next to Forms and Autofill.

Just not filling in forms, not sure why.

Thoughts?

Only add-in is Ublock Origin

Thank you Peter

Big Sur/M1 Mac mini - browser becomes unresponsive, display incorrectly scaled

I'm using Firefox 86.0 on an Apple Silicon Mac mini (16 GB/2TB) with macOS 11.2. Several times a day when I return to the browser, it will have become completely unresponsive to clicks and or typing. In this state, I can't click on web pages, or controls in the tab bar. However, the app is not beach-balling. I can quit by right clicking on the dock icon and choosing quit from the menu (I don't have to force quit). Relaunching fixes things. Also, if I have, for example, clicked on the "new tab" button in the tab bar, once I've quit and launched again, the new tab will be in the window, indicating that the command was processed, but the result was not visible. Sometimes, but not always, when in this state the page display looks like it has been scaled to about 50%. (As if I'd hit "Zoom out" five times). One clue that may relate to this is, I'm running in scaled mode on the monitor (The monitor is capable of 3840x2160, but I'm scaling things in the Display control panel to 2560x1440.) Apps are running in Retina mode. I have tried running Firefox in Safe mode, but that didn't help. I have a lot of tabs that I don't want to lose, so running in a fresh user profile is kind of difficult, unless there's a simple way to transfer open tabs between profiles.

I'm trying to install and use a digital security certificate on my MacBook Air (2020). The OS is Big Sur 11.2.2

Currently, the certificate shows as installed, but I can't download a backup to install it on Thunderbird to use for digitally signing emails. The tutorial article from the digital certificate company seems to be for an older version of Firefox, or perhaps the Mac version is different enough that the steps don't line up. Either way, one of the steps is to "Enable FIPS" and I have not been able to do that. I can find the option to enable FIPS, but it is greyed out and I haven't been able to find any information on how to fix that.

Preferences/Privacy & Security / Security / Certificates / Security Devices

Clicking on the certificate itself in the Device Manager list shows the status as logged in and the options that are available on the right side are Log out, Change password, and Load, but Enable FIPS is grey.

I use Firefox as my default browser, and I am an enrolled online student. I have an external logitech camera that works fine on Chrome and Safari (I'm on Mac) but Firefox requires a complete close and reopen after a few hours. It stops accessing the video camera accurately, although the indicator light on the camera still comes on.

This happens regardless of the platform (i.e. Google Meet, Zoom, chat sites).

Does anyone know what's going on? Or what settings can be tweaked? A computer running windows ten is having the same issue.

How do I edit non address autofill data? When I autofill a form, my 1st name comes up correct but last name is all lower case, when I clear the field the Capitalized version is shown. Next time I use the autofill again the small case version appears. A similar thing happens with email address. An old email address (from a prior account) is displayed, but I cannot find any way to get rid of the old email address nor correct it. Everywhere I look on all your instructions, I cannot find any discussion/instructions on how to change Non Address Autofill data. Pleas help as I am getting tired of having to constantly manually change these fileds every time I use autofill. THANKS!!!

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

I understand that the multiple threads are for faster content loading, but that's irrelevant for me. I've manipulated it for quite a while, and I always see 5 threads boot when FF boots. can that be stripped down? if so, how? tx. see img.

I've always been able to post comments about columns on WaPo. Scrolling past the column brings up a part of the page that says "posting as username". The name is correct. Previously, I'd see a little circling "working" icon and then a box to enter my comment would open and I could also see comments that others have made. Now, nothing happens. I cleared my cache the other day, and the problem seems to be since then. Comments work fine in Chrome, but I like Firefox better. Ideas?

Build: Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i5-10600, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, MSI B460M-A Pro. OS and some software on an SSD, other stuff on two hard drives.

Problem: Replaced mobo, CPU, RAM, CPU fan and SSD a week ago, installed fresh OS. The day after that computer started resetting randomly while streaming or watching a video in Firefox after a period of from five minutes to two hours. Never happened while I was playing Monster Hunter World and Apex Legends and streaming them with Chrome open or closed. Win doesn't say anything about it after reboot, and I can't see a minidump in Windows folder.

Event log doesn't say much interesting, two events right after the reboot are always like that:

The previous system shutdown at 15:23:32 on ‎02.‎03.‎2021 was unexpected.

Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0

The only other warnings in the log are like this: Catalog Database (1800,R,98) Catalog Database: The database format feature version 9180 (0x23dc) could not be used due to the current database format 1568.20.0, controlled by the parameter 0x410022D8 (8920 | JET_efvAllowHigherPersistedFormat).

Tried updating chipset & network adapter driver, graphics drivers, turning hardware acceleration in browsers on and off, removing add-ons from Firefox, reinstalling browsers. Checking temperatures with Open Hardware Monitor (all below 40 degrees Celsius), CPU load is very low. PSU is also a suspect, but this crash never happened when Firefox wasn't running.

I guess it was the update to Firefox v. 86.0 here on Ubuntu that made Firefox create an extra empty window beside the session I always (re)open, which contains a large amount of tabs. When I try to close the empty window Firefox gives a warning, that this will close my (many) tabs. That doesn't make much sense to me. And when another app, like Thunderbird, opens an URL, it is opened in the new empty window. I can add that I use some add-ons like Simple Tab Groups, Vertical Tabs Reloaded, AdBlock Plus and NoScript.
