I have tried disabling all system security (Talktalk F-Secure) on my desktop system but it does not solve the problem. The issue affects my smart phone, tablet and desktop when connecting via my TalkTalk router. However, the tablet, for example, connects via my work router. Any bright ideas anyone

I have rather abruptly lost all audio in Firefox 77 on Windows 10. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Facebook videos - all silent.

Meanwhile, I'm getting sound as usual when viewing those things in Chrome (and I would really prefer not to have to go back to Chrome), and all sound from other sources is working correctly - games, iTunes, Spotify, etc.

Does Firefox hook into my system's audio functions in some unique way, different from everything else? I've recently started experimenting with doing my own music and video recording/editing, and I've tried out a number of different audio/video apps in an attempt to find the tools that suit me, and I'm starting to wonder if one of the apps I tried modified or overwrote whatever system hook that Firefox was using.

Strangely enough, the audio spontaneously started working again yesterday, a few hours after it stopped, and was still working today until I rebooted my machine. Then it was gone again.

When I am on a Firefox webpage and it site says something like "Click Here" to open a how to file or a pfd or a statement to print...those types of things. Once I click on the button Firefox starts to open new tabs, one after another. It never stops. I end up shutting down Firefox before it finishes. I counted 55 new tabs at one point. But, the new material never shows up either! Any suggestions?

I am not able to post pictures in Facebook comments using Firefox on my laptop. I am posting this here rather than in FB because I *am* able to post using Internet Explorer. When I click on the camera icon within the comment area nothing happens. In IE, doing the same opens up the ususal window to select the file I want to upload. Also, on my LG Android phone I can add photos to comments. Is there some setting in Firefox that could be the cause?

Please continue here: [/questions/1292692]
I'm using Firefox with a mac with OSX El Capitan 10.11.6. I've used it for many years, with no problem accessing streaming radio and archived radio. Now, I'm beginning to not be able to have access. I'm wondering if I need to update to a newer version but am loathe to do so for fear of unintended consequences. Any ideas?

When visiting the above site in the latest version of Firefox Developer the page fails to render. However, when I view the page in Firefox (regular non-developer version) there are warnings regarding the site using an unsupported version of TLS. Here is the warning:

This site uses a deprecated version of TLS that will be disabled in March 2020. Please upgrade to TLS 1.2 or 1.3.

Will Firefox in the future drop support for TLS 1.1 and lower?

Ever since switching from Chrome to Firefox, I have been unable to log in to Tumblr. I have checked my phone like five times to make sure I am using the right password - I am. I can successfully log in to Tumblr on my phone, but not on Firefox. This is the only website I have this problem with - I have tried to contact their support, but I figured I would contact Firefox support too since I don't know which side is causing the problem.

Please let me know what I should do.

I have checked all settings and even uninstall ad-ons, it first started happened on my work computer. Thought it was the computer hardware or something. But now I got a laptop and it happened as well. I don't know what's causing the issue or how to fix it.

It's very frustrating because I can't really read well what it says now. I have attached a screenshot of the problem and it happens on almost every website
