HTML5, YouTube, and Netflix video playback does nothing

Playing HTML5, Youtube, or Netflix video does not work at all for me - Netflix throws an error code, while Youtube and HTML5 simply never stop loading.

I've tried

  • Starting Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode
  • Clearing the cache and cookies for the given website
  • Refreshing Firefox

On the chromium-based edge browser, video playback works normally.

DRM-controlled content playback is enabled, hardware acceleration is disabled, allowing auto-play doesn't help, and neither does disabling Tracking Protection.

I have like 100 Firefox profiles that i use for different topics and would love to sync them all at once, i was looking for a file that stored the login approved for my Firefox account info to just copy paste that one file in all of my Firefox profiles, but can't really find it.

This is a problem because every single time i have to introduce my email and my password and sometimes it also asks for an email verification code :( .

I've been having an issue with firefox when trying to load my emails in aol. I don't have this problem with other browsers. After logging in with user name and password, there is a consent page that pops up. After answering that prompt, the emails should start loading. It's been taking almost 2 minutes to load. I thought that by updating to the latest version, 91.0, today, that problem would cease. It hasn't. Any ideas?

I have two versions of Firefox installed on my work PC, the regular one for my everyday browsing and the Developer's Edition for my work with the regular one being my default browser. For some reason, through no effort on my part, I ended up on the beta channel for the regular browser.

That was OK until the latest beta (version 90) started showing an extremely annoying bug. On a daily basis, on average, it will stop loading pages for no reason. For that reason, I'd like to get off of the beta channel and get back to using the release version. Would uninstalling the beta version and installing the release version do that for me? Or will I somehow end up back on the beta channel and get upgraded to the beta version again? (If I do have to uninstall the beta and install the release, I want to keep all of the settings, bookmarks, plugins, etc. that I have in that browser. I have the Dev Edition browser set up to never sync, so it has a different set of settings, etc., which I don't want carried over to the other browser.)

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

Frequently after an upgrade my FF (91.0b7 (64-bit)) on Win 10 reverts to the previous version. I only notice it because I start getting prompts to upgrade.

Frankly, I'm pretty clueless and sick of Windoze but determined to not resort to Chrome or hEdge. ANY suggestions to help figure what's happening (and hopefully how to prevent it) will be greatly appreciated.

I did not choose a BETA VERSION. I have used FIREFOX since VERSION 1.0. IT USED TO BE THE BEST BROWSER EVER CREATED. BUT NO LONGER. WE use Firefox to accomplish things, not to debug BETA versions all day. One day I wake up and you FORCED rel 89.0 on us and it turned the whole WEEK to crap. I had 6 consecutive crashes the other day. Today I had 5 consecutive crashes. I had to turn my PC off and give it and me a rest. I did not ask for a BETA, even to leave rel 88. YOU 'forced' it on us with your "you have no other chooses if you want to continue using FIREFOX attitude. And all you can say is: Go BACK to 'stable rel 90 AND CREATE A NEW PROFILE? DO you have any idea how hard it is for us, a USER to CREATE A NEW PROFILE FROM SCRATCH?

THIS MAKES NO SENSE, YOU CRAM A "BETA" ON US, IT CRASHES A HALF DOZEN TIMES A DAY and your answer is to go back to a stable version YOU FORCED ON US? Then we spend a day or two creating a NEW PROFILE until you force ANOTHER BETA on us to test for you? You can't let us stay on a STABLE version like rel 88 until you work out the bugs then "tell us" there is one available and advise us to INSTALL IT? THIS IS CRAZY, let alone "Professional".

When syncing between devices, the location of bookmarks in subfolders is not remembered

I use Firefox on 3 devices: - a PC at home (Win 10, FF standard instalation), - an Android phone (Xiaomi Mi 9T) - a PC at work (Win7) with the Firefox portable version.

I have the latest, stable, up-to-date versions of Firefox on all my devices.

The problem is when I save a bookmark on one of the computers at work or at home, and then the devices synchronize. Bookmarks between computers do not remember their position in the bookmark folders and are saved in the main folder.

I have already performed all the steps based on the instructions in this article, but the problem persists. ([https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1270667])

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

I am running MAC Version Catalina 10.15.7, on Firefox version 90.0, and after installing the update today, every single "like" icon on the Facebook no longer appears. the placeholder is still there, as you hover over the area, you can still click on the area, but the icons no longer appear. This happened in 89.0.2, but only some of the images for the like icons would disappear, not every single one of them.

On my new PC with a fresh and fully up to date installation of Windows 10, Firefox tabs keep crashing for no reason.

Ticking all the boxes they give me in the crashed tab and hitting reload/refresh tab is unlikely to actually fix the tab. I have to hit that button at least 5 times to maybe get the tab working again and even then it's basically a coin-toss whether it actually gets fixed or not.

I have 7 firefox.exe.(number).dmp files with no way to upload them here but if there is an way to do that please let me know so I can provide additional data.

Please help me with this ASAP, I'd rather continue to use Firefox on my new machine than go back to Chrome. Thank you.

  1. The First Image is of the URL bar. If you look closely, some of the parts are chipped.
  2. The Second Image is of a Button. It's chipped in all sides.
  3. The Third Image is a string of dots and hyphens that I've selected with my cursor. It's weirdly torn in the middle.

The Issue is on both Firefox Developer Edition and the normal Firefox. Both are the latest versions. Both are installed on my OS.

I'm on Parrot OS 4.11. I've tried changing the window compositor which is Metacity(Marco) but that doesn't solve the issue. Kernel is 5.10.0-6parrot1-amd64. I'm running on integrated graphics. No third-party graphics driver.

I have Ubuntu installed too and the problem isn't there in Ubuntu. So It's in Parrot. I heavily use Firefox for Web Surfing and Development.

All of them are fresh installs from the official website.

Since back in 2004, some releases perform as the following: Open a TAB. See a link you would like tp open as a new Tab.

EITHER CAN HAPPEN: 1. It put that link as a "NEW TAB" AND the Cursor STAYS WHERE IT IS. Allowing you to select more links to create MORE NEW TABS, etc.

2. It put that link as a "NEW TAB AND MOVES THE cursor TO THE NEW TAB JUST CREATED and you are no longer on the original TAB and can not create/move more links to new tabs.

90% of the time I prefer to STAY so I can create multiple LINKS as NEW TABS, THEN go to the new tabs for viewing.

is that an OPTION or a "NEW FEATURE"?

I'm using Firefox developer edition 90.0b12

As seen in the attached picture, the bookmark menu lines are too narrow.

If I recall correctly, a couple years ago I customized it, but now I can't find any userChrome.css file anywhere.

How can I find why is it being displayed like that? or how can I restore its default display?
