Hello, Live videos in youtube are not starting. No issue with regular ones. Also FB reels don't have sound and I need to press two times on play to start the video.

I tried with Chrome and Edge and I don't have such issue.

I have no extensions or add-ons installed. Cache and data are cleared.

Could you please help me?

I have a local server where I host several apps (URLs such as http://192.168.0.101/). I've noticed that Firefox will not offer to autocomplete text boxes and forms on local pages.

I have the "Firefox will Remember history" option enabled, and autofill works elsewhere as expected.

Hello, yesterday (Friday) I downloaded the program Pure Web Browser, which was one of the advertisement on Firefox website when I opened it. Later, I discovered that Pure Browser was blocking many things, because I could not perform functions on some websites, such as getting my email because it blocked me signing in. This happened with several sites.

Could you please tell me how to delete Pure Web Browser, as it is causing problems with the PC. I have tried, and had no success.

Thanks for your help.

Basically, I have three different profiles in my Firefox with three different app icons, but only one of has notifications.

For some odd reason, the MacOS notification center is showing the wrong profile. It's like only one of the profiles is visible, or working. I tried resetting it, which is apples way of "deleting" it, but Firefox keeps forcing that particular profile and not my main one.

Firefox 122.0.1 (64-bit) MacOS Ventura 13.5.1 (22G90)

Why am i seeing this, and how can I get it to where I am the one controlling my browser and not an "organization" I don't know? This was the big issue I have had in the past with your browser. I cannot find a way to change it.

I use a password manager. Many of the web-based services I subscribe to use my email address as my user name - this is quite common.

When I am trying to login to one of these pages, your "Let Firefox hide your email address" message pops up over the selection box from my password manager. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove your message - which, in this context is totally inappropriate - but your message prevents me from logging in to my account when I need to choose between identities (example, work and personal).

Can I turn these messages off? or can you add a simple "X" to the window so I can close it without that action being picked up by my password manager?

Firefox version 122.0 Mac: Sonoma 14.1.1 apple silicon

The problem emerged about a little over a year ago (around September 2022). It started with an installation of firefox on another machine running BigSur, and I guess the problem got ported when I restored a time machine backup on this current machine. I attempted to troubleshoot the issue by following mozilla support and reddit threads but to no avail. I, at the time, settled on monthly time machine backups, but now finally decided to address it properly.

Troubleshooting steps that I have followed:

  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.max_pages and places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages to 2147483647 then to 999999 after reading about how a value too high might be ignored (both values didn't seem to change anything)
  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.transient_optimal_database_size to 85534800
  • removing the add-on/extension manager as seeing that it might remove history for some reason (from a [thread] by IceTemple)
  • In the privacy and security tab, history is set to Firefox will use custom settings for history

Things I suspect might be the problem:

  • I originally used the Chinese version of firefox (downloaded from the .cn website) and reinstalled the international version (from .com) after getting annoyed by the built-in ads. For convenience sake, I ported the profile folder over which might have carry the problem over. That being said, I don't think this problem existed when I just started using firefox but appeared awhile later.
  • result of an update, don't know which though
  • certain extensions (I haven't went through them individually since I installed a lot)

My questions:

  1. How to stop Firefox from doing this ever again?
  2. Alternatives of storing history if nothing works
  3. Why did my troubleshooting steps not work? Is there something wrong with my version of firefox that prevented the about:config changes from working?
  4. If I have to resort to backing up the places.sqlite history file, how do I restore/reintegrate them with current history file?

English isn't my first language so I apologize for any confusion that may arise due to how I articulate. Any help is much appreciated

About once a day, my latest Firefox x64 (under latest Win x64) stops being able to load content in new tabs. Content in existing tabs continues working. I usually have 15-50 tabs open, but I haven't been able to connect the problem to any particular action/state in/on my Firefox instance. My Chrome (which I also always have open) doesn't have this problem. My PC's internet access, in general, continues to function normally, i.e. I haven't been able to detect any other problems which "happen at the same time." My cybersecurity tools include (paid) Kaspersky Internet Security, (paid) MBAM, and a SentinelOne agent.

This problem started happening maybe 3mo ago, and has continued across several Firefox updates (and several Patch Tuesdays / Windows restarts).

Restarting Firefox always solves this problem (until the problem next recurs), so it's not, you know, catastrophic, but it seems like it might be something you want to know / do something about.

Let me know if/when/what further diagnostic information I could provide.

Not sure how to explain this without the images... But I opened up YouTube just looking for some videos and uhhhhhh. I checked on other things in my computer to see if it's just my GPU or some weird graphic thing, but everything that isn't firefox seems to be working OK. It's not that terrible, I'm just really confused.

Why is this happening? And can I fix it? Started like... two minutes ago.
