A few years ago I did something to disable the display of videos due to all the annoying autoplaying--maybe it was a config setting. Now I need to figure out how to deactivate what I did to get these to display on page and just use the built in option to stop autoplay. Currently when I click the video link it opens in a new tab. The image shows an example of what I see with all videos. Even with addons disabled this behavior still persists.

I have my FF preferences set to restores previous session when quitting, but when I restart my Mac with windows and tabs open, FF opens back up with no windows and tabs open, and when I click on Restore All Windows, nothing happens.

Why isn't this function working?

When I log into certain pages, Firefox will say it has finished loading but functions like search bars or drop down menus do not come up, rendering the pages useless. Other times I go to log into an account but it only loads a blank white page. I have tried clearing caches and cookies already, as well as several other solutions posted on various asks and message boards. My Internet connection is fine and the pages load perfectly on other browsers.

Whenever I close and reopen Firefox now, my bookmarks do not come through and I can't restore the tabs that were open. Is this because Firefox now requires you to sign in? (I really don't want to do that.)

External monitor show different color in Firefox.

Hello,

I have some serious problem with firefox. I spent all day to find the solution but i falied.

I was trying all the configurations from this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1171999

gfx.color_management.mode: 0, 1, 2 gfx.color_management.enablev4: ture, false gfx.color_management.rendering_intent; -1, 0, 1, 3

Each one of them combined with other. All failed.

What is the problem. I have a new iMac with external monitor (apple thunderbolt display).

One the iMac screen everything is ok but on the external monitor, color in firefox is totally different than other browsers and different than iMac.

Here is the example of code i use for test. It's not image. Just clear CSS code: https://www.dropbox.com/s/znnuxq1g75169g8/css.png?dl=0

Here is the screenshot from iMac All 3 browsers have the same color: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3nrkw6ljzwo32kn/imac.png?dl=0

And here on external monitor firefox show different color. https://www.dropbox.com/s/c4vl4tlxmech8o8/external.png?dl=0

Firefox is my main browser and i don't want to change it just becasue the color is not working properly. But because i'm the designer i need to have almost the same color on my both screens in browser.

Overall both monitors are ok. The problem only exist in Firefox. All other apps are ok. Figma or Photoshop work fine, both screens have the same color. But firefox not.

I'm using also Firefox Developer Edition and there is the same problem.

Are there any more options i can check before i will change browser?

Thanks, Przemek

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.

Hello -

I haven't watched any Amazon Prime (paying member) for a few weeks and just tried to watch a show last night and kept getting error message "Video Unavailable". I tried several other shows, as well as turning off AdBlock and ensuring I wasn't running a VPN/proxy to no avail.

And today I am discovering I cannot play Spotify either.

Any thoughts? Part of recent updates? I am attaching a screenshot if helpful.

Much appreciated!

My daughter is a student in the UK, and ever since I searched on Amazon UK to purchase items for her, my searches bring up a mix of US and UK websites. This is driving me crazy, especially when I am looking for local or US specific information. I deleted the cache and cookies, I checked to make sure Firefox had location permission on computer settings, yet it continues to do this. I don't see how Firefox is any different than any other browser, clearly they are collecting data that they refuse to let go of. How can I make this stop?

There is a lot to love about Firefox. However, it has perhaps THE worse history searching tools of any browser. You cannot search by date, just "Last 7 Days" or whole months. Even then you cannot see on which date the search was performed: stupid and inexcusable.

Got one response from a volunteer but that response, unfortunately, was for Windows. I'm on a Mac...

When I select the bookmark, Firefox does nothing, apparently.

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

Thanks in advance!

Before Firefox was downloaded, I had to use Safari. It had an arbitrary list of top sites that had nothing to do with my computer use and I could not edit it. Firefox imported that weird list and now many of the top sites listed in Firefox are ones I never will use and I can't add the ones I want. Firefox help says to click on the 3 dots in the address bar and click on Add top sites but it is not there. That does not help with deleting the wrong ones or adding my real top sites. What else can I do?

Firefox V88 lädt Seiten quälend langsam oder gar nicht, trotz nagelneuem Macbook (Big Sur) und frischer Neuinstallation FF!! Bei der neuen Hardware sollte der FF flitzen, aber es ist genau anders rum. So langsam war ein FF nicht mal vor 10 Jahren. Wo liegt das Problem? Bei Big Sur? Bei Apple? Bei FF? Bei mir? Dann höchstens am Synchronisieren, denn sonst habe ich nix mit dem frisch geladenen und installierten FF gemacht. So ist er unbrauchbar. Safari läuft schnell. Google Chrome läuft schnell. Das alte Macbook (Mojave) mit FF78 läuft schnell.

Und Feedback an Mozilla ist unmöglich! Der Link zum Feedback auf der Feedback-Seite führt nur auf diese Seite zurück, und eben nicht zu einer möglichen Eingabe für ein Feedback. ( https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page ) Ist Feedback nicht mehr gewollt?

Wer kann gegen meine Enttäuschung was tun? bzw. wie kann dieses Enttäuschtsein über diesen FF wieder in Freude am FF gewandelt werden? Danke

I just sent an e-mail to someone at a company that handles my finances and I immediately got an ad in my Yahoo mail from a company called BeenVerified asking if I wanted to know more information about the person I sent the e-mail to. This is very unsettling. I don't know if it is really related to Firefox, or Yahoo Mail, or the fact that I had an account with BeenVerified in the recent past which I cancelled sometime back.

Is there a possibility that the security settings within Firefox can be changed to stop such a thing?

Thank you for your time!!!
