For over a month now i have a problem with youtube. It loads videos very badly. I have good connection speed, but 0 network activity and 0 buffer health in Stats For Nerds on youtube and videos dont load. I can wait for 10-15 minutes (but sometimes they load almost instantly) before video load 40 sec buffer and after that buffer ends i can wait for another 10 minutes befor it load buffer again.

This problem persist only in my firefox on my computer. I tried deleting all the extensions, reinstalling firefox, "refresh firefox" future, changing useragent, reinstalling windows (it was the time anyways) but it doesnt solve the problem. I dont have this problem in other browsers (edge, librewolf, chrome) on my computer.

Hi,

am running firefox 127.0.1 on a windows 11 desktop. Numerous sites that use a captcha to login fail. In other words, the captcha never loads and I cannot login to those sites. Such sites include teamfaderpro, Coursera, and bandcamp. All logins fail as the captcha is required to be passed prior to logging in, but the captcha never appears and so when I try to log in, nothing happens and I cannot login.

I have tried the above same sites on the Edge browser and have no such issue, the captcha shows and I can login.

Just FYI, the agent switcher setting change recommended by others previously is not suitable. When I tried that fix I was unable to access a considerable percentage of the internet due to some cloudflare issue, so the agent switcher setting is not an option. So far, I have tried all recommended settings to fix this issue and nothing has worked.

I am surprised no one else is having this issue.

Any help is appreciated, or at least inform google/mozilla about this issue as it has been ongoing (on and off) for me for many months. And yes, this problem is persistent for me at the moment, it remains despite rebooting windows, despite clearing cookies and cache (which I have set to automatically delete when exiting firefox).

I'm trying to use a manual proxy server for Firefox. When entering the proxy address and port number, Firefox outlines the port number field in red and disables the OK button thus refusing to accept my assigned port number. I'm trying to use port number 29842 which was given to me by the proxy provider.

Firefox crashed, Reinstalled it v121.0.1 Win Pro 10 (x64)

Although Extenions are reinstalled, I cannot find any way to get them into a toolbar now, (Using the Drag - Drop - Shift method)

There is supposed to be a "Gear alongside each extension" so that can be chosen, but no gear which works now.

Very frustrating as cannot properly access these extensions now.

Some time ago, I found the way to inser these Extensions (Addons) into the Toolbar, but cannot remember how I did it.

The Extensions show they are installed and "working" but it's rather useless nmot being able to get the shortcuts for each onto the Navigation Toolbar.

Appreciate help - Thank you.

In security I have use primary password enabled. I have sync enabled. When I first open Firefox, the "Please Enter your Primary Password" dialog appears twice. At first I thought I was repeatedly miskeying the first time. But then I noticed that if I drag the modal dialog box, then a second box pops up behind the first. In fact, some times, I can start typing when that second dialog appears. As in the case today when I just caught it. Please see screen shot attached.

FireFox 99.0 Windows Enterprise 10 OS Build: 18363.2212 I am on a Private Browsing window when I see this error.

Please do what it takes to cause me to not have to enter the master password twice.

Thank you,

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

I love screenshot by Mozilla. However, recently in the last few months (not sure) when the change happened, the timezone (stamp) at the end of the screenshot is NOT based on the "local" PC that is using it. I am in EST but it shows a different time zone which creates a problem. Since Mozilla Online is China based entity, I believe it is showing their timezone. I checked the settings and I could not find where to change the timezone to local time. This is key for many users as we need a "correct" local timezone.

Previous versions had this feature (automatically) and I did not have to set it up. Can we have the option to change the timezone please? Thanks.

On this particular website; https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?SiteLat=28.590775&SiteLon=-81.281180

I am not able to use the mouse scroll wheel to scroll.

The only way for me to move the map up or down, is by moving the pointer all the way to the right of the page, placing the cursor over the scroll bar, then use the scroll wheel.

This only happens with Firefox, I just installed it today and am wondering if there's a setting I'm missing.

Hi,

For the last few weeks Firefox has been TOTALLY unresponsive - the browser page loads however the Home Button does not appear (this was previously set to "on"), when I press the Settings hamburger and try to select an option, none of the option open, and even more annoyingly when I manually type a webpage in, it does not load.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox, manually deleting the folders from C:/Program Files and %appdata% and reinstalling but this does not resolve the issue.

Incidentally, when I try to reinstall Firefox an error comes up saying vcruntime140.dll is not present but when I bypass this dialogue box and let the install finish, it is then present in the C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox folder.

Thanks for any help.

I've already looked through the FAQ and various solutions online and have not been able to find a solution that works. My issue is that while Firefox sync is signed in (and working) on 2 computers, as well as my iPhone and iPad, I have lost the password to the account and am not able to recover it from any of these devices. It seems the password saved in my "Passwords" is incorrect, and that seems to be the only place it was saved. I didn't write the password down anywhere, setup a recovery key, secondary email or two setup authentication.

I DO have access to the primary email account, but don't see any way to use that to recover the password either. As I am already signed in to sync, I AM able to add new devices using the QR code, but that doesn't seem to work for new computers (like the laptop I just bought). I have already extracted the saved passwords and bookmarks, and transferred them to a new account (the account I am signed in with right now).

However, I would rather use my original account instead of having two, nearly identical ones. I would also rather not fully reset my account as there might be something else I forgot to record that is buried in there somewhere. Is there some way to recover or extract my Firefox account password from one of the devices I am signed into? or is totally resetting the account the only option available?

Thanks

-Bryan
