This began Feb 6, one day after my PC updated to Firefox 85.0.1. That may or may not mean anything.

I have been watching Spectrum TV for years using Firefox. Yesterday, the picture was blurry on all channels. I attempted to capture a still part of the picture. There is no stuttering - it looks a lot like somebody over zoomed a photo ( Zoom is 100%.). I have the same issue on multiple monitors, and everything else I display with Firefox, including YouTube videos, is normal.

When I watch Spectrum TV on MS Edge. the picture is normal.

Any idea what may be going on?

Hello,

we use the latest "normal" Firefox on a Terminalserver with Windows 2016 Std. (no firefox ESR version is used, no central firefox GPO) are in use

Users reported that they got a new empty firefox profil after firefox updates on the terminalserver.

I saw below articles and I am not sure what is the best solution to avoid the a.m. problem. Can you give a advice? Thx + best regards

Our goal is: using firefox on terminalserver, function/policy for "non-update-automatic" would be no problem"

I am at very high risk of COVID19 pandemic due to my age and severe health conditions. I depend on technology. My health providers communicate through Whats-app, and I am an amateur of the source. Supposedly it is supported by Firefox. When I attempted to get it, Firefox required permission to introduce extensions in my computer, but I got scared by the consequences of the permissions described there.

 Isn't it possible to get the benefits of Whats-app services without exposing privacy and functions that much?  I will highly appreciate prompt guidance.

Hello!

I often share my screen in video conferences. It works pretty well except I try to share a window of a Microsoft-Store-app.

The windows of these apps just don't appear in the drop down menu where I can choose the window I want to share. This affects also the Microsoft Store itself and the Windows settings-app.

I have no problem sharing these windows in Google Chrome.

If anybody has an idea how to fix this, I would be very happy! Thanks!

I use Firefox 85.0.2 on Win 10 64 Bit Home on a Dell desktop PC.
